M A R O N E Y RETURNS Professor Zug Discusses War Cartoonists Head of French Department Passes Away at Ogdensburg. Dr. Arthur Gustave Ward, head of the French Department at State College, died Saturday at Ogdensburg, where he was taken for treatment the day before. Due, it is thought, to over study, Dr. Ward's health became so poor that he was granted a year's leave of absence from college during the summer, Treatment at local hospitals seemed to give no aid toward his recovery, and he was moved to Ogdensburg for special treatment last Friday.

McMahon, '20, was elected cheer leader by 46 votes. Ralph J. Baker, '21, the other candidate, will hold the position of assistant cheer leader. The success which McMahon had last year undoubtedly won the election for him. Baker, being a new and untried candidate, came in second in the race, but his work in the position of assistant will surely show up his ability. With two such leaders as McMahon and Baker, State College will surely hold its own in noisemakiiig at games and assemblies. SPANISH CLUB Spanish Club, held its first meeting of the year last Wednesday afternoon at 3:50 o'clock in Room 209. Beatrice Sullivan, '19, the president of the club, presided. A short business meeting was held at which Miss Sullivan asked the members of the club if they would consider another day or hour for the ' meeting, since the Freshmen are now barred. Professor Stinard was then introduced, and gave an interesting lecture on South America. It is Continued oiv page 4 SANTA VISITS STATE COLLEGE G. A. A. Has Jolly Time. On Friday last, lo and behold, dear old Santa came to visit many happy children at State College. They were happy children indeed, for they all came promptly at seven with dolls and teddy bears, and even go-carts. They were good little children, too, from babies in long dresses to little boys and girls of ten, and Santa gave everyone of them a present. Three of these children were made doubly happy by a pleasant surprise from Miss Bennett, They were the winners of the G. A, A, song contest.

Real college spirit has been born here, and organizations are going to.nurture it along until we have famous traditions the same as any college. The students are "playing u p " remarkably. The Frosh have shown that they arc really with us — and the other classes have been " there " all the time. The men are working hard to make a team. They have worked hard all year to keep a college spirit going while they were in the ^ S. A, T. C. But is is admitted, world-wide, that " All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy," The men of this college do not go about with an injured air, nor arc they consumed with self-pity. But they arc justly indignant that all they can do is to work. For some absurd and idiotic reason, social events, especially where dancing is desired, are branded in this institution as though they were to be responsible for some hideous plague, Yet how harmless such things really are! Consider the Junior-Frosh Reception. Did anything unlawful happen? Was there ever a nicer " p a r t y " held in our gym? And; there were men, some of them outsiders, there too!

The attention of all students is called to the following provision of the attendance rules: "An absence on the opening or closing clay of a' semester or upon the day instruction ends or is resumed at a recess or vacation period, shall count the full number of permissible absences in a given course." During this week notices will be sent from the Dean's office to all students whose work has been reported by their instructors as unscatisfactoryfor the first half of the semester. No student should feel that he is discredited by the receipt of such a notice, but should clearly understand that credit for the semester in the subject in which he may now be deficient depends in large part upon his zeal and industry for the remaining weeks of the semester. All students should perhaps be reminded, that the following rule is in operation this year: " N o credit toward r graduations shall be given for anj course in the major' or minor group with a grade below BULLETIN BOARD RULES 1; Section One shall be used for njtices of outside activities of interest to college students. 2.
