INTER-SORORITY PARTY The most novel eatless, decoratjcw.iciss,' cxpeuseless,' and allaround lloovcrizcd social function 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. Since one must always be conventional, there was, of course, a 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 fact that those, faculty members were not really present did not mar-tho-reality of the occasion, as they'•" 'Were represented by able substitutes, Perhaps the most! • popular professor of the evening was Dr. Fainter. His well-known eloquence and social ability surpassed themselves. Tlie" greater part of the evening was.'.spent in (lancing. The ex' pen'sc-less ' music was furnished by several of the girls, who played the piano for two dances each. ' The program was as-follows: Reading—Edith Morrison. Vocal-Solo—'Marian Raskins. Reading—Mary Grahn, Violin Solo—Gertrude Southard, accompanied by Alberta Silkvvorth. Reading.—Florence Stubbs. .Reading—Elizabeth Gardner. The members of the,programme! committee Were, Ruth Patterson, Edith Morrison, Marian Baldwin, Mildred Oatey, Marian Smith, and Pauline Kinney. The partv ended with the singing of sorority songs, Alma Mater, and the Star Spangled Banner., SPECIAL ISSUE OF THE NEWS 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.

STUDENT ASSEMBLY 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! "With branches of beech, of flaming beech, Continued on page 4 TEACHERS 1918 APRIL 24, 1918 $1.50 PER YEAR 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 may 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 powers.at 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."

EDITORIALS WORDS 'How much we admire a person who has the facility of expressing just exactly what he means!How few of us can do ill What woeful examples of this inability to use our own language do we hnd every day! In recitation's; students wlio really have ideas1 which are valuable are pitifully handicapped because, they cannot-find the words with which to convey their meaning' -to the others. Again and again we hear the hesitating "Well—," the embarrassed "Why—," the hackneyed'1 "introductory "Now—." In chiss meetings it is often'iiripossible to reach satisfactory '/'conclusions concern-' ing matters of real importance for thi!.- simple reason that the members of the class cither do not have the ambition: to say what they think, or they are too diffident to brave the hostile glances of their classmates. Afterward, however, dissatisfaction and. dis-, gust are ably expressed in .no am-' certain terms to a group! 6Lassociates in the corridOryfor /locker room. Would it not be much more .sensibly ,to dev'cio'p'a vocabulary, sv'ttjahle for use' in larger "asscm,plages,,or,.:put the orte'you have in .wcjrkhjg"order? ' ji'.Aljnos't every.day we hear some ' profe'ssor's reference1 to the undch'iable fact "that we are being j trained to'lie teachers. In what ' o t h e r profession-is there greater need for 'efficiency in the handling of words? If'we college students could'better-"ourselves in but one wayi'durirtg the four years here, is there anything -more indispensable jtftat' we" can'.,acquire than the '^ability' : to sayrclearly and ade'1 qtfately what we- mean? ."'Jiet!s' learn 'to talk! "•*' ' • • -. F; M. M., '19. ,To the :Editon,of;.the State Col' ! lege New9:: . Inasmuch as the students are expected Jo be somewhat familiar with'citrren't'topics :and with events which ; arc found in the daily papers, it would'seem no more .than 'right that they should have access to. ' at least one Albany newspaper, The majority of stu. dertts probably are unable to sub• scribe to one of the local papers. Students: are often.-:-.blamed for'a lack of' knowledge 0/1,-daily events, J am, #ure, that these... students would only lie too willing to spend a few .minutes eacli day 111 reading a newspaper if one were available. 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 reading room as soon as received, not the day after. If some attention were given to this mailer at State. College the students, I am sure, would be most grateful. D. L. B. 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? JUNIOR, 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 one more objectionable. Of 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 dance, 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 dances. 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 Stamp. 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? Can't you bea ' them calling across the waters? stiff-necked "For shame I ye people." C. Si; '19.
