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.

Last Year's Leader Gets Lead of
46 Votes
As a result of Monday's all-day
balloting, Lawrence M. 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.

called to the following provision of

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

may now be deficient depends in
large part upon his zeal and industry for the remaining weeks of the
