of the year occurred Friday evening, April 19, when the members
of the six S, C. T. sororities held
a joint party in the gym.

faculty receiving line, consisting of
Dr. , Bruhacher and Mrs, Brubather, Dean Horner and Mrs.
Homer., Professor Rislcy and Mrs.
Rislcy, M.iss Springsteed, and
several, .others: The unfortunate

Student Assistance Needed
Tn conjunction with -the Press
Club, the board of editors of the
News is planning to publish a
special issue of about twelve pages.
The date for this issue has not
been set, but it will probably ap-
pear before June first. This number will include a resume of college athletics; social activities, and
all student interests, The purpose
of the undertaking is to give to the
public a worthy representation of
State College—to show that we
are not a "normal.'' A copy will
be sent to every high school in
the State, in an effort to interest
prospective college, students in
Stale Colleger ... •••
To make this issue the best possible, much student and faculty
assistance will be needed. Each
organization, club, fraternity or
sorority is urged to send some account of its purposes, and accomplishments, terms of membership
and interesting material concerning it. Every phase of college life
must be represented. The editors
ask' each and every student to
send' in some write-up for this
issue. If you can think of. anything which properly belongs in
this special issue, write, it up.

Student Assembly on Friday,
April nineteenth, was conducted
by Myskania. After current announcements had been made, the
meeting was given over in part to
consideration of Red Cross activities in College.
Miss Agnes. . Futterer of the
faculty appealed to the students
present to do more in-the way of
actual service for Red Cross. She
asked for a rising pledge and received- a- generous response. Tn
conclusion, Miss Futterer read the
following poem by Emilc Cammaerts, published in "Belgian
Patriotic Poems:"
"Sing, Belgians, Sing!
"Although our wounds may bleed,
Although our voices break,
Louder than the storm, louder
than the guns,
Sing of the pride of our defeats
'Neath this bright autumn sun,
And sing of the joy of honor
When cowardice might be sweet.
To the sound of the bugle, the
sound of the drum,
On the ruins of Aerschot; of
Dinant and Termonde.
"Dance, Belgians, dance,
And our glory sing.
Although our eyes" may bum,
Although our brain may turn
Join in the ring!

Pres. Brubacher Makes Sixth Address
of Democracy Series
"Education in a Democracy " subject of lecture Commemorating Patriot's Day.
The sixth lecture of the scries
on Democracy, being given at the
college by the faculty, was given
by President A. R. Bruhacher last
Friday afternoon.
The subject
was "Education in a Democracy,"
The speaker took a few moments
at the beginning of the hour to
discuss the relation of Patriots'
Day to the development of democracy in America. On April
19th, one hundred forty-three years
ago, a few Massachusetts farmers
insisted on their individual liberty
to the extent of openly fighting
the British army in the village of
Lexington. They' thereby demonstrated that the government in the
United States must rest in the consent of the governed. This act
was >a demonstration of unity made
significant in the Declaration of
Independence on July 4th of the
following year, and laid the foundation for a democratic form of
government in the United States.
Early in the lecture, Dr. Bruhacher defined three phases of
democracy and later showed that
each phase has a special significance for education.
He said:
"It is first a philosophy of life;
then it is a form of government
established solely for tlie purpose
of giving full force and expression
to that democracy; and finally it
is a distinctive social consciousness by which a people knows that
the government to which it consents gives concrete expression to
that people's philosophy, f go to
our own Jefferson for a definition
of that philosophy: 'That all men
are created equal, that they arc
endowed by their creator with certain inalienable rights; that among
these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.' T go to the
prophet and high priest of democracy, the martyred Lincoln, for the
formula of government:- 'Government of the people, by the people,
and for the people,' and T go to an'
American poet f and patriot, James
Russel Lowell, or the social credo:
'Every man has a chance and
knows that he has it.'"
"After the philosophy of freedom and inalienable rights finds
formal expression in a. government
'of the people, for' the people' and
by the people' established to secure the rights of this philosophy,
it follows inevitably that such government cannot endure, unless the
mass of the people is confident its
rights are secure," continued the
speaker. "The social consciousness that each has a chance is the
real test of democracy. The con-'
dition of social justice must he
insured by a government if it is
to be an enduring formula. As a
mere philosophy, democracy
endure even in the minds o f sorclv
oppressed people under autocratic
governments. Witness, the Russian and even German democratic
pr.nnps.: As a troveni'iient it can
endure only as it justifies itself to
the people and becomes a means
of social satisfaction throughput
the populace,"
The speaker next made note of
the fact that wherever men exist
in groups, there naturally springs
up some form of unity in government. He spoke of examples in
half- civilized clans and tribes,
where sonic definite ritual and
ceremonial observances are common. Democracy' has developed
certain rituals and observances on
which it subsists,
The Business of Education to Prepare Youth for Democracy
Dr. Brii'hsvcher, proceeding toward the object of the lecture,
said: "It is the business of education to prepare the youth for clanlife, to understand its peculiar significance, to learn loyal service to
its requirements,
Education .Is,
therefore, charged with the specific
duty to induct the young into the
ranks of citizens by giving them
a complete knowledge of all the
ideals, institutions, and observances for which democracy stands.
Adjusting to the clan-life of democracy is the chief business of
education, determining the contents of its program, and ' its
methods of procedure. Democracy
differs from,other forms of government in the demands it makes
upon individuals. 'Tt gives him
rights and demands from him
heavy duties and responsibilities.
For example, it gives him liberty
and expects from him voluntary
service and observance of law and
order. Education in a democracy
must, therefore, adjust the individual to these peculiar conditions,
How may this be done?
"Public health is paramount.
Every citizen is a part of the state,
a potential ruler, a protective
agent. That he may be useful to
himself, an efficient social unit,
self-respecting, fit to do his, part,
he must know how to conserve his
health, which is his capital in
stock and trade, Accordingly, education must acquaint him with
the laws of hygiene, in order that
he may come to his task of citizenship and community responsibility
with a sound body. The most
democratic tendency in education
is compulsorv health service in the
public schools." The speaker further pointed out that :edtication
must discover all the talents and
capacities which make the individual what "he is. Tt must reveal
men an (J women to them selves,
and enable them to give.their own
particular their best, to
their environment.
After dwelling upon the training of ' the•' individual at some
length, the speaker emphasized the •
necessity for the training of society as a wlhole. The natural
method in this field is civics. Tt is
the science of community service,
Tn conclusion, he said: "Educa-.
tion needs but to look-about itself
for a profusion of means to teach
cooperation and responsiveness in
the social unit."

Inasmuch as the students are expected Jo be somewhat familiar

.than 'right that they should have

As far as I am able to ascertain at present J do not know of
a normal school in the Slate
which does not furnish at least
one paper for the use of the students. One of these schools receives three N. Y. newspapers, the
Times, the Tribune, and the Sun,
which are placed in the school

not the day after.

To the Editor:1
Just as an expression of opinion
concerning the'.jgiying up of college social .affairs, I would like to
say that. I consider it a splendid
plan Io slop needless expenses' in
ibis,.direction. Certainly the spirit
behind the movement is to lie
commended. But we need some
outlet. It is an old adage that
says,. "All work and no play make
.Tack a dull boy." And this is
singularly applicable here. With
social functions removed college
will mean nothing lo students but
drudgery—and that will kill the
college spirit we are striving so
bard . to obtain. There is one
remedy—or rather, means of prevention—and that is sitnnle. Can
we not arrange to have the gymnasium open an hour or two during each day, for those who care
to dance to have .this opportunity?
Volunteer pianists are eas'v to find,
and the expense would be absolutely' nihil. It seems that prosncctive'.teacihers could be a'lowed
this privilege,' even without a
chaperon, if one could not be
found. At least we should be
ffi'veh a trial; This has been done
here in past years, and no great
calamity occurred. Cannot something be done in this direction—
and done at once?
To the. Editor of the News:
In the last issue of the News
von asked the views of individuals
in the student body concerning our
social life here as affected by the
war. Mv opinion is that it would
be decidedly unwise to stop the
dances all -together. The college
people, being human, need some
recreation'. If it is denied them in
one place, they often seek it in
course I am'hot defending expensive dances, or even as expensive
ones ns they had here in the last
few years! At the Senior Hop and
the Soph Soiree the only expense
was the music; in neither, case did
that exceed twenty dollars. Those
present had a line time,
I admire the patriotic spirit
wliich induces a fraternity or a
sorority to give up a dance, but
what if the individuals of that society then plan to attend a more
expensive dance outside of college instead? Why not have at
least one big dance 11 year which
any N. Y. S. C, T. student might
alend and invite an outside guest?
Let the expense of this dance be
fairly heavy, say about three dollars, and the proceeds given to I he
Red Cross or some patriotic work,
Surely there would be enough
students glad to attend such a
Another suggestion—if the gym
were open for informal dances on
Friday evenings just for college
people and a nominal sum were
charged for admission, the proceeds to 1)0 divided between musir
and Red Cross, perhaps there
would be less dissatisfaction about
the quality and quantity of our
B.; '20.
To the Editor:
I say, why have college rings
at all? Of course, 1 realize that
t'hey mean a great deal to most of
us—we would be very proud of
them when we are alumni. But a
golden circlet about the linger will
not mean anything for our country
and "our boys" while six golden
dollars would put a halo around
the head of anyone who sacrificed
them for a Liberty Bond or Thrift
In the first place we don't need
these rings and most of us are
agreed that luxuries should be
"cut out" till we "win the war."
In ancient times a seal ring was
used in sealing documents, but
now we have not even that excuse.
Secondly, many people will never
wear their rings after they leave
college and they will lie mislaid
and lost and thus be worthless.
Again, probably we wouldn't give;
six dollars toward a Liberty Bond
if we didn't buy a ring, but isn't
that evidence of our selfishness?
Fnallv. what a spirit is ours when
we will let "our bovs" sacrifice
all—their courses wliich we have,
the peaceful opportunity to continue, their friends, their homes,
their verv lives, and we pay six
dollars for a bit of gold for1
vanity's sake?
