president, Gertrude Blair, '19, who
introduced the sneaker of the afternoon. Dr. A. W. Abrams, Chief
of the Division of Visual Instruction, State Department of Education. Dr. Abrams' subject was
"Visual Instruction in Relation to

These nictures were very ititerestiho;, as well as instructive, and.

"State College on the Map" ha3
been our desire since time immemorial. Of all things that have
helped to do this, the Student Volunteer Conference of last week has
much. Three hundred delegates
colleges,— Cornell,
Syracuse, Wells, Colgate, Hobart
and others—were guests of State
College, housed by College people,
fed at the College cafteria, and entertained by the Students' Association at the basket ball game Saturday night after the evening session of the convention.
Three hundred people have now
returned to their respective alma
maters after visiting State College.
The real significance of their visit
will come years later, perhaps,
but the present significance is great.
State College is in a position to
entertain a convention.
lectures and study alone, but of
great advantage as the extra-curriculum lectures, concerts and talks
which are held frequently in our
Last year's superb
series of democracy lectures given
by our faculty, and the year's
serie3 on the peace conferences are
splendid examples of cultural advantages.
To the Freshmen and those upperclassmen who do not know
Professor Kirtland intimately, wc
wish to urge attendance at the
Monday photography lectures. In
adidtion to absolute material values
to be gained, those who go will
find a distinct pleasure in the personal contact and informal relationship with Mr. Kirtland.
Several week3 ago the "News"
published an editorial on the seeming lack of respect shown by the
student body as a whole to the
speakers who address us in assembly on Friday mornings. However,
things may have improved since
then in other parts of the auditorium, the Freshman section
seems to be growing noisier every
week. And to think, Frosh, that
before wc were complimented because it was not our side of the
room from which the disturbance
came. Although we are so far
to one side that we cannot hear
how much talking the upperclassmen do, certainly we are well
aware of our own faults. If the
other classes have shown a marked
improvement during the past few
weeks, surely we do not wish to
be so far behind them in the matter
of showing respect to the speakers
which favor us from week to week,
or in showing consideration for
others. And if those other tlasses,
who should be our teachers in all
such things, are no better than we
are, let us try to show them that,
even if we are "green," we have a
little common courtesy about us.
And so, regardless of whether the
rest need criticizing along these
lines, or not, let us try, this week
to show Professor Risley, and
everybody else, that we know how
to be polite.
A real treat to fans came Saturday night at the game between
State and Massachusetts Aggies.
For the first time in our history
State had to play an extra term of
five minutes to decide the contest
above a sixteen-all score. A
more tense period is seldom seen.
It was a real case of stiff fight,
but Fitz's foul and basket brought
the purple and gold score to nineteen, against eighteen as run up
by two fouls on the Aggie side.
Clean sportsmanship pays in the
end. State College glories in the
principles of clean play evidenced
by her men in last week's games.
The announcement in last week's
"News" that Professor Kirtland
would "give a series of talks on
photography was read by all of his
devotees with great joy, To those
who have been so fortunate as to
listen to his delightful rambling on
this pet subject of his, the promise
of more seemed a special treat.
Education as given by State College, does not consist of classroom
When the proposition was laid
before the Freshman class, that
we have a Red Cross unit in College, there was a large number of
people who raised their hands, signifying that they would support it.
Well, there are just about a dozen
or perhaps fourteen of these people who come out to the meetings
and help sew. That is a very small
representation of a class as large
as ours.
Perhaps many of us have the
idea that it will be a bore to come,
but instead, it is really a lot of fun.
We have not forgotten the adage,
"AH work and no play makes Jack
a dull boy," and we play games
after our work is done.
Yon mav not know how to sew
well, but that doesn't make any
difference. You can at least make
an attempt, and you will be sure to
find a great many others in the
same predicament. Come on,
Freshmen, and help along the
movement which we have started!

We wonder how many "folks"
at College know about them, now
that their happening is past. We
can testily that many State College girls came to find out what
was going on, over Washington's
We wonder, too, how many of
our faculty realize that there came
to us—to our own College here, over
two hundred students, representing
eighteen different colleges throughout. New York State. We wonder if even a small percentage of
our faculty consider that there
came, as well, many prominent
speakers of this land and other
lands, some of them leaders of institutions throughout the world. ,
Would it not seem strange to
these new people to find an institution made up of students
alone? State College made an impression upon these earnest sisters
and brothers of ours—perhaps a
one-sided impression. Many of
them had never heard that such a
place as State College existed.
rhey noticed and mentioned the
hospitality of one faculty member
who kindly opened the library for
their use. We wonder, with this
thought in mind, where others were
to give their hand of welcome.
These others were missed by no
small part of the two hundred
travelers who came to a new country for these days.

We've been terribly busy at College this year—every one of us. In
tact we ve been so occupied with
work that we couldn't even find
time to talk to our friends as formerly. But it does seem a shame
when we become so industrious
that we have no time for courtesy
—not the Sir Walter Raleigh courtesy, that would force the men to
lay their coats around the halls for
the girls to walk on, but just plain
thoughtfulness for others.
doesn t take much more time to be
considerate and not only does it
create a much more cheerful
friendlier atmosphere but it also
raises the standing of our college
In the first place there's our
cafeteria. Of course we often have
only half an hour for lunch and
there are a number of things to do
before one o'clock—and most of
all it s so tiresome waiting in line
But how many of us consider the
girl ahead? She may have even
less time than we have, and if she's
at all meek or retiring she has
probably been pushed back at least
a dozen times. However, what do
we care? "Let's walk over her and
get up by Mary." Really, the cafeteria will soon be a fine example
of the survival of the fittest. It
seems that we would get through
the line just as quickly if we stood
in place —or if we are unusually
hurried why not ask to be allowed
to step ahead. If we're polite
enough to ask, the other person
naturally couldn't be so rude as to
Our library also seems to be a
scene of frequent forgetfulness. Because it is the only place we have
to study, some of the student body
appear to consider it a recreation
room. It is very convenient to
discuss the lesson with the person
on the other side of the table, but
I think most of us realize how hard
it is to study with these discussions
in progress — unless we are one of
the participants. Occasional questions can be excused, but for the
lengthier conversation let's depart
to the hall,
Most of all wc need courtesy' at
our games.
There the public
watches, criticizes and judges us,
There the visiting team meets us,
notes our actions and reports them
when it returns to its home college.
The games are our advertisement
for State College, and we don't
want to be advertised as "roughnecks." Above all things don't let
us lower ourselves by clapping
when the opposing team fouls. Give
them that hand clapping in sportsmanlike appreciation of good playing. Due to our college spirit, we
certainly are overwhelmed with excitement at the games and then
when someone shoots a basket and
just misses everyone unconsciously sighs and gives forth a despairing " Oh." I'm not trying to label
this act with the Discourtesy Sign.
It isn't because we are at all disgruntled or discouraged, we simply
forget ourselves, It must be rather
hard on the boys, though, to hear
the bleachers groan over "a lost
basket when six have already been
made in ten minutes. Of course
they understand — but if we just
keep still or grin, there won't be
the slightest doubt but that we're
