State College News NEW VORK S T A T E COLLEGE FOR TEACHERS ESTABLISHED BY THE CLASS OP 1918 VOL. II' No. 27 FRESHMAN CLASS HAVE NOVEL MEETING. J he hrcshmen had a very enjoyable class-meeting Saturday night, .May 4, 1918. When the Freshmen had all assembled, the class banner was unfurled with due ceremonies. Then a basket ball game between flic old maid " Giants" and the old maid ''Shrimps'' sent everyone into gales of laughter. The old tuaids were very appropriately gowned. The next stunt was a very touching wedding given by the men of the class. The blushing Miss Sine, a veritable " daughter of the gods, divinely tall" (6 ft. 3 in.), became the bride of Mr. Co-Secant, a madly chap of 4 ft. 10 in. Later an Agony Duet Was " rendered " by two members of the class. Following this a very vivid description of how Socary set his blue hen, was given. A rousing class sing concluded the program. Between the stunts, there was dancing, the music being furnished by members of (he class. Miss Pierce, Miss Futtcrer and Mr. Alexander were guests of the class.

DAVIDSON ADDRESSES STUDENTS ON WAR PROHIBITION Democracy and World Peace Mr. Becker Tells of Camp Life Dean Horner Gives the Eight Lecture Student Assembly on Friday morning, May third, was in charge of Myskania, and opened with the singing of Alma .Mater. After .preliminary announcements, Mr. Joseph Walker introduced John A. Becker. Mr. Becker was until recently a student at State College, lie has just completed successfully a course in training at Camp Devens, Ayer, Massachusetts, and is now eligible for a second lieutenancy. Mr. Becker spoke primarily on the changes wrought on an individual by camp life. Although, as he said, he had no thrilling front line experiences to tell of, still he had felt all the knocks of camp training, lie gave an exceedingly entertaining as well as pertinent account of life in camp as he had known it. The fact that Y. M. C. A. has made camp as near like home as possible was. emphasized, Mr. Becker said in conclusion that one of the most valuable lessons he had learned was that the best way to get something out of the game was to put all you have into it. The next speaker of the day was Mr. Davison, who has spent much time recently in France and at home in Y. M. C. A. work at army cantonments. Mr, Davison spoke particularly of the need of war prohibition, or the elimination of one of the most wasteful influences of the war. Since the President cannot wipe out the liquor traffic, as a war measure, until the people of the United States want it, it is our place to show that we do want it. In England it is impossible for nation-wide prohibition to become a law, since the country is so beset with traditions. But we are a bolder people. The government is but waiting to- execute our will. In closing, Mr. Davison called for a rising vote of t'hosc among the students who would be willing to communicate with their representatives at Washington in regard to the matter of prompt legislation on the Question.

For the most part the speaker was optimistic, hoping for a real world peace. But he stated emphatically that he believed such a peace could be gained and preserved only by the sword, In part the Dean said: lair, and to enthrone right and justice and to bring freedom to all peoples throughout the world.

"Are you a clerk? " demanded the captain. " No, sir," replied the man. "Do you know anything about figures?" asked the captain. " I can do a bit," replied the man, modestly. " I s this the best man you can find?" asked the officer. " Yes, sir," was the reply. " Well," growled the captain, " I suppose I'll have to put up with him!" Turning to (he private, he snapped, "What were you in civilian life?'' " Professor of mathematics at the State College, sir," was the unexpected reply.— The Taller. The annual gym exhibition took place Friday night in the Albany High School gymnasium. But it was not like any exhibition before. 1918 starts a new cycle in gym workin State College. From start to finish the program was one grand success—no mistakes, no hitches— the entire work went on oiled wheels. The two lower boards of the bleachers were reserved for the partakers, and still there was not room for them. At the signal from Miss Gray the girls came down the stairs, one line on each side of the room. The men followed. After a very effective marching formation the performers sat down, Marching tactics were first, the girls and then the men. Both were excellent — not a discordant note in either group. The first of the three drills was the dumbbell drill by the girls. Miss Ellen Donohue '20 and Miss Katharine MacGarahan '21 were leaders in all three drills. Miss Dorothy Banner '20 was at the piano. The drill was clone by over a hundred girls and took well with the enthusiastic audience. The English country dance was very pretty and interesting. The girls all seemed so enrapt in their work and apparently had a wonderful time. The Indian club drill was done by the men and girls at the same time. Perhaps the most spectacular number was the work of the men on the. long horse. Awe inspiring break neck handsprings, and somersaults forward and backward, made the audience clap and shriek its approval. The girls' apparatus workwas good, but was overshadowed by the fact that the men were doing more exciting work at the same time. The relay was a potato race among the four classes, with two girls running for each class. The audience cheered the aspirants for first place, and the race resulted in a tie between the Seniors, and the Juniors. The biggest bit of the evening was the aesthetic dancing. The audience clamored for an encore, but none was given. The entire Junior gym class took part, and the whole performance was very pleasing. Miss Gray and Mr. Maroney deserve the credit of the success. They have worked all year long, with every faculty possible, to make the exhibition a good one. But they could not have dreamed of such a landslide as they had Friday night. The Albany gym was never before so crowded. The poise and assurance of the two instructors were reflected in the students with whom they have worked. They may well be proud of their success. State College is certainly proud. When the end of the program came dancing was enioyed until 11. Dorothy Banner and Leon Woodruff played for the others to dance. A Jokevitch.

The Senior class at Vassar College have unanimously voted to give up class day, third ball play and all other exercises of commencement week with the exception of the baccalaureate sermon and the presentation of diplomas. The students expressed the desire that the money which would have been spent by the families of the students on the final visit to Vassar, estimated $60,000, be put, as far as possible, into some war fund.
