Student Assembly Friday morning, October 3, was devoted to a memorial service in honor of Gertrude Crissy Valentine, both a student and teacher at Stale College, who gave her life in service. Dr. Brubachcr spoke of her desire to help in the war. " There is no niie in our family lo go," she had sairl, " a n d 1 feel that I can do something." Dr. Richardson as a close friend and associate id' Miss Valentine, told of her pure, noble, and inspiring life. She had formerly gone in Vlhany .Vormal School as a student. Later to obtain her degree she went to Vassar, where she was distinguished by her spirit of friendship, her wit, humor and keen desire fur knowledge, There she won the love and admiration of the students, faculty and trustees. " H e r wit," said Dr. W. ENTERTAINS STUDENTS Reception H e l d in Gymnasium On Friday evening, October 2, the Y. VV. C, A gave a reception in the college gymnasium especially in honor of the Class of 1923. The entire student body and the women of the faculty were invited. There was a very large crowd present. Thi' gymnasium was very prettily decorated with Japanese trimmings. The large letters, Y. VV. C. A., were lighted with electricity and were placed on one side of the gymnasium. A large part of the evening was given up to dancing, hut a program was given first. Florence Stuhhs, '20, gave a vocal solo; Miriam Smith, '20, recited " T h e Littlest Rebel"; a Japanese scene was shown which was called " Singing in Toy-Land," in which Nellie Parkhurst, 21, and Katherine Merchant, '21, danced; and Mrs. Chamherlayne gave I wo piano CHEMISTRY CLUB Meeting Tomorrow Afternoon First regular meeting of the Chemistry Club will be held in room 250, on Friday of this week at 4:15 P.

Tt is expected that this will be a banner year for the Club. Richardson, " w a s as brilliant and keen as the French — her sense of humor akin to that of Charles Lamb." After graduating from Vassar, Miss Valentine returned lo State College, where she look a number of methods courses, meanwhile assisting the Dean and Registrar. She was then engaged as assistant in the Department of Ancient Languages. As a teacher she ever "inspired her students lo seek perfection." She was serving in ibis capacity when she decided to join the service. She went first lo Plymouth, England, where she spent many months as a canteen worker in the V. M. C. A. Octagon, administering to the needs of [he soldiers and sailors. She did all kinds of i.ianual labor obligingly and willingly. In every Continued on Page -I. G. A . A . H I K E T O LADDER INDIAN Surely the sun shines for G. A. A.! In spile of the dreary looking day, two bus loads of G. A. A.'s rolled away from Stale College at 12:45. By 2:00 o'clock the bunch was just starting up the mountain full of vim and pep—• with the sun shining as if it bad never intended to do otherwise. Mountain climbing took about an hour and a half of lime and five hundred puffs of enerev. It's merely incidental ihat not a person had remembered the " e a t s , " hut there were plenty of willing freshmen to trot obediently down the mountain to bring the " doggies " up to sec the big bonfire someone had built. The "eats" disappeared in record time, and, rumors have it, in record-breaking quantities. One bus left at 5:30, soon after the banquet, but many of the hikers stayed until 7:00. Even the weary seven o'clockers had enough energy to sing and cheer all the way home— and G. A. A. can cheer. Much of the fun was due to (he jolly chaperones, Dr. Douglass, Miss Card, and Miss Scotland, and G. A. A.'s lively president, Harriet Woolsey, '20.

PROFESSOR DOUGLASS VISITS VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS Observes Equipment in the W e s t Professor Herbert M. Douglass, head of Industrial Education Department, has returned from the West, where he was called by the death of his brother-in-law. Before be returned Fast, Professor Douglass spent some lime at the Dunwoody Inslilule al Minneapolis, Minn., and the Stout Institute at Menominee, Wisconsin. Dunwoody Institute is a vocational school which was established about three years ago by a man named Dunwoody, and was by him heavily endowed. It is now under the direct ion of Dr. C, A. I'rosser, a leading figure in vocational education in I he United Stales. The registration al the inslilule totals approximately live hundred. Plans are already under way lo erect three more buildings in anticipation of a larger enrolment. The school gives instruction in machine-shop practice, automobile repair— this was an exceedingly large class, Professor Douglass reported — carpentry, cabinet making, printing, electrical work, .sheet metal work, plumbing, commercial photography, and baking. During the war Dunwoody Institute trained seven thousand soldiers and sailors. Stout Institute is supported entirely by the Slate of Wisconsin. It is unique in that it docs just I wo things — it trains teacher.0, of home economics and teachers of industrial subjects. The equipment of this college is splendid. T h e Dome Economics Building is double the space of our entire Science Building, and connected with it is an auditorium thai will seal eight hundred people. This auditorium is lilted out with a stage similar to those in modern tin aires, and a complete motion picture outfit. Both departments have a splendid gymnasium with upto-date swimming pools. Professor Douglass especially emphasized the thoroughness with which the Industrial Department is equipped, l i e found there a carpenter shop in which could be built a small onefamily house which could later be moved out through movable walls. T h e city high school is attached to the main building and there they find difficulty not in getting the students to elect work in the two departments of the college, but in obtaining enough practice teachers to accommodate the students.

In last week's " News " an article called "We Are Waking Up" was published. We may lie —along certain lines, but so far, developments in some other directions are absolutely lacking. Take, for instance, the matter of our blanket tax, Of course, we realize the delay necessary in the election of our new Finance Board, but it is now a week since the members were elected and no developments have as yet been evinced. Nothing can be carried on without money, and the expenses of college activities are secured thru the Hoard of Finance. No request for budgets . has been received; therefore we suppose nothing has as yet been done towards calculating the amount of the tax. Another line in which activity is at a standstill is underclassmen rivalry. Where are the caps and buttons that belong to the restless Frosh? Why are the members of '23 allowed to break every rule in the " Bible" and escape with no chastisement whatsoever? A little more pep, please, '22! The one branch in which we all seem to be making most headway is that of studying. Very good, Eddie, but' that is taken for granted. We would-be school teachers must necessarily delve into pedagogical depths regularly, but we must also revive our' Jagging mentalities just as regularly with social affairs. What lias happened to our former lunch-period dansants? And is it a new rule that even on Friday nights our gym must be darkened at 10:30 o'clock instead of the former half-hour later? Please, everybody out to maintain our standard of equality of work and play, and let's go — in every direction I This issue of the " N e w s " might lie called the revival number. We hope every member of the faculty and student body will " hit the trail" and stay hit. NO EXCUSE From now on there will be absolutely no cause for every student not knowing his Alma Mater, With the current issue of the "News" is a supplement, slightly smaller than a page of the College Song Book, on which is printed the new tune, "Try it on your piano " and learn it and the three verses that go with it. " PEP " i Yes, it's an old, old subject; but, since there is no one who has too much "pep," and Economics 4 teaches us that " suggestion is powerful in proportion to its mass or volume." we venture to add this modest bit to what has already been said. We hope you will not make the mistake of thinking that we consider State College lacking in "peii." She, as a College, and her students, as classes and individuals, have shown abundance of it. And where much has been done, more can be doiic,_ but satisfaction is a dangerous thing. We must not be entirely satisfied. State College has grown in spite of cramped quarters and inadequate equipment. Last year she put a winning basketball team on the floor, and competed in the Inter-collegiate track meet, although she had only forty men and no basketball court or a track of her own. There's " p e p ! " But with a little mure of the same vim .'Hid punch she can force stubborn executives to grant her more room, and she can register enough men so thai she will be recognized in all sports. And as for I be classes, '20 has always set a good pace. This year she can show us how to leach, so that, when she is gone, '21, cannot help bill follow her brilliant example. And '21's slogan has always been: "Full of life, full of pep, Nineteen Twenty-one, you bet!' 1 She is going to show us what big sisters can do for the Frosh and how a From should be conducted, '22 has been a good class, but this year, as Dr. Painter would say, the odds are against her. She will need to lie "on her toes" all the time in order to keep Minerva from being desecrated and the campus from being trampled down. And now, '23, vvc are hardly acquainted with you, but we feel sure that in spite of your numerals you will be here after mid-years, and that you will keep the Sophs worrying all the while. So much for the classes, but it is for the individual that we really wrote this. VVc cannot analyze all the students in college to sec if they have " pep," but we can ask questions. Are you going out for athletics? Arc you helping run things in your class, or are you " too busy "? _ Are you taking part in college activities, or dn you let some one else do it? Maybe in days gone past you have taken part in all three, but because you have won no official title, you feel discouraged. If so, you should read this verse from Grace G. Bostwick's poem, entitled " P e p " : " Sand and grit in a concrete base — That's pep! Friendly smile on an honest face — That's pep! The spirit that helps when another's down, That knows how to scatter the blackest frown, That loves its neighbors, and loves its town — That's pep! " —'21, DID IT DIE? During a discussion among a number of uppcrclassmen recently, the subject of "Promethean" was brought up. ft is only among uppcrclassmen that such a subject can be discussed, for Promethean seems to have just faded out of existence some time during the past two years. Fond memories of jolly meetings of this literary and music society arc still cherished. These meetings were held on alternate Thursday evenings in the auditorium, and the programs presented furnished attraction for a large majority of the students in college. Both faculty and students took part, and the initiation of new members always afforded a great amount of fun. Of course, we have Music Club now which, in a way, takes the place of Promethean, but we believe there is room and need for both. A field in which Slate College has had no part in recent years is that of debating. Cannot Promethean be revived to its old extent and vigor, and be broadened so as to include active debating teams? There must at present be many members of the old Promethean in college. They should form the nucleus of a new organization, and should start active campaigns early. Let's hear from them! With as much talent as we have here in literary and musical lines a live program should never be wanting. Think over the matter of inter-class, and possible intercollegiate debates, and express your opinion " via " the " News," SENIORS This year's " Pedagogue" is coming out on time — no dottbl about it. Some Seniors have already signed up to have their pictures taken this week. See Agnes Rabo for your date. All pictures must be taken by Thanks giving vacation. Watch for the Senior table in the hall. Officers o_f other classes get appointments right away. Everybody star! saving all kinds of material for (he " Pedagogue." GYM F R O L I C Here it is at last!

WHAT'S DOING AT "Y" THE Come on over to 747 Madison and see what a splendid " Y " House we have! It's just a short walk from college, and we're allaws glad to have visitors. We're almost all settled and to quote one of_ the house girls, "We look spiffy." Of course, you'll forgive us if our awnings a r c still up, and our parlor is a temporary store room. Conic anyway —a warm welcome awaits you! An informal house meeting was held Saturday evening. Ethel Rooney, '20, was unanimously elected House President. Other officers chosen were Helen Reitz, '20, Treasurer; Beatrice Haswcll, '23, Proctor; and Charlotte Lynch, '22, and Dorothy Plum, '22, Joint Secretary and Reporter. A schedule for " K.

Elizabeth Archibald is to have charge of it this semester and Florence Sttibbs, the second, The course is open in Juniors anil Seniors and a short dramatization is to be given at the end of each term. NEWMAN CLUB Sunday morning an important meeting of the Newman Council was held at the home of Father Dunney, on Western Avenue. Plans for the coining year were discussed and will be voted upon al the firsl meeting of this society. The proposed plans concern a formal reception and initiation of the Freshmen members, the date of which, though not definitely settled, will probably be late in October. Before this time the councilors of Newman will endeavor to sec personally each Freshman intending to become a member of this club. Plans arc under consideration for the club to receive Communion in a body on Sunday, October IP, and afterwards breakfast at the Cafeteria. A more definite announcement will be made later.

Chase might make a report to the Society on the personality of the applicant. Two weeks later, a telegram came instructing Miss Mayhcw to go to ilie French Commission in Washington, D.

The school thai Miss Mayhcw will enter will be a Lyccc, bul in what part of France, she docs not know. She will probably be required to study Latin, mathematics, music, French literature and history. The Lycces of France, though very much like boarding schools, are under government control. The purpose of the Society for American Fellowships in French Universities is three-fold: First, to perpetuate through a body of university students the friendship that exists between France and the United States; secondly, to develop a better appreciation of the contributions of French Universities to science and learning; and thirdly, lo offer for open competition among the graduates of American colleges and others with experience in the technical fields opportunities for advanced study in the French Universities. The Society was organized last spring, and it was decided In launch the plan at once, partly in order to enable the selected candidates lo enter upon their studies at the beginning of the forthcoming academic year, partly lo meet the wishes of some of the French educational authorities who are cooperating in the plan, even though the lime for securing the desired publicity was not adequate.
