LAWRENCE Stale College lost a hard game on Saturday night wheii we lost to St. Lawrence in the last minute of play by the seorc of 23-20. The combination playing together Saturday night proved to be the best that has started this year. State excelled in passwork but was unable to score many times after it had worked the ball under its own basket. Uarber excelled for the visitors while Springmann was the star for State College. It was due to his superior work that the ball was under our basket a good share of the time. Two of his baskets were scored by spectacular work on his part. One was scored after he dribbled the entire length of the court and another was scored from a difficult angle at the side of the court, He scored half of the total points for State. The score follows: Continued on page 6 POLITICAL SCIENCE CLUB 1918 n 1920 Treaty Referendum Discussion Students Favor Proposition IV ; i ! ! I ! j [ i | i The regular chapel period and third period of the morning session on Friday, January 9, were given over to the presentation of the thicrcollegialc Referendum on the question of the League of Nations. The discussion, which was well presented, was given for the purpose of presenting the different .-ides of the question and not for the purpose of spreading propaganda.

A college vote taken thus simultaneously and in a uniform ballot sels forth the opinion of a large body of impartial but interested voters in the country which is fairly representative of the public .sentiment on questions of like national and international character.

Traveling on the same train were delegates from Boston University, ' Weileslev. Ilolyoke, Smith, Yale, Harvard, Brown, M. I. T , many small colleges and countless little normal schools in the Fast. Several rather exciting things happened before we had gone far. First of all one of the cars just back of us developed a hot box and the unfortunate people in that car were forced to sit up in a day coach most of the night. For a long time we were in Ontario, Canada, — a new experience for some of us. Here we noticed that the houses were mostly of brick. Reluming to the States our lirst slop was Detroit, which we reached Tuesday morning. hi the afternoon we went through Battle Creek — saw Kellogg's but not the sanatorium —• and Kalamazoo, which many of us had thought was merely a name. We reached Chii cago about nine Tuesday1';evening where we spent the rest- of the night jerking around from the 12th Continued on page 5 DRAMATICS CLASS IN THREE ONE-ACT PLAYS Albany High School Auditorium To-morrow Night The Dramatic and Arts Association will present the • Dramatics Class in three one-act plays tomorrow night in the Albany High School auditorium. The class has been working hard under the direction of Miss Futterer to make the plays equal to any that have ever been presented by this College. The lirst play on the program will be a kitchen comedy. It derives its name, " Between the Soup and the Savory," from the fact that the action takes place during the serving of dinner in a well-to-do English family. The play centers around the little slavey (Emily Sccurmanl who listens longingly to the cook and the maid discussing their "gentlemen friends." Unable to stand the heartless remarks to her by the maid (Mae De Rouville) any longer, the little slavey reads a letter which she claims was sent to her by her young man — but to tell the rest would spoil It.

We came back too late for an issue last Thursday, but we feel sure the material published here will amply recompense for last week's loss, and for the lack of publications during the next two weeks of exams. The next number of the " News" will be the annual junior issue, to be edited entirely by the junior members of the board and published February 5. In the number following will be published the list of new " News" board members from whom a maximum of five sophomores will be elected in May to positions of Associate Editor for 1920-21. Those who are trying for these positions should join Press Club and get busy! DON'T WORRY " The fateful time approaches, The hour is drawing near." No, wc have been back at College only two weeks, although it does seem a year when we think of the " bright prospects " immediately before us. Christmas vacation was so pleasant and so generally opposed to study that the contrast now seems overwhelming. But, in truth, should we feel that all pleasure lies behind and only disaster ahead? Wc have not forgotten everything we ever knew, and besides we have taken " exams " before. In fact, vacation itself has helped to prepare us to be equal to the occasion, No matter how we have spent it — all in pleasure, all in work, or some of each — we are better prepared because of it! However, if wc have made a profitable and sensible use of those days away from College, so much more will we, conscious of it or not, reap their real benefit. During each, semester wc have small vacations — our. week-ends. There is some work to be done then, it, is true, but it is not as intense as through the week.

SPANISH CLUB Oh, come ye youths and maidens all, and hear me while I tell Of all the joys of Spanish Club, for you should know them well. Last Friday night that dear old room, familiar to us all, (Tn other words. "250") was decked out as for a ball. Its "educated" atmosphere, was thoroughly dispelled, (Tho' chemical concoctions still were rather plainly snlellcd.) The purple and the gold were used to dim the lights' full'glafe, Tu keeping with the solemn- fate of' those who entered there, MANUAL ARTS CONFERENCE manual training well prepared in professional subjects, both in the general field of education and in their special field. Teachers of technical subjects are in great demand, but notwithstanding this unprecedented scarcity of teachers and the demand, teacher training institutions and State .educational authorities should not lower the standards even temporarily. Professor Douglass says that the general feeling expressed here at College is in favor of the four years' course and its value is recognized, but since only two years are required by the State it is hard to get men to stay four years; also considering that the two year men can demand as high a salary as the four year men. JUNIOR MORNING On Friday morning, December 19, the junior class entertained student assembly with a skit entitled ''After the Slcighridc." The class marched to the junior section of chapel to the tune of the 1921 class song, the marshals, Katherine Collier and Lillian Hopper, leading the_ procession with the '21 banner, The skit, in brief, was enacted as follows: After the singing of several popular songs by the chorus of young people who had just returned from a slcighridc, individual numbers were cleverly worked in. My fail wy _ Williams entertained with a piano solo and Gertrude Southard with the violin. The chief fun maker of the morning was an Italian fruit peddler, "Tony," otherwise known as " Al " Llrody, His jokes, jazz, etc., were well received. —;;••• The skit scored inasmuch as everyone had the holiday spirit and was looking forward to just such a good time as the juniors depicted. Those taking part were: K. Ball, Alice Briggs, Catherine McGarrahan, Myfanwy Williams, Gertrude Southard, Mary Whish and John McClucr, Hugo Poll, Ted Cassavant. Tom Beniley, James P.ucci and Al Brody. ! t < X INFORMAL TEA AT " Y " HOUSE An informal tea for the faculty and members of Y. W.

BROADWAY T HE marvels of electricity have revolutionized our manufacturing industries. With belts and pulleys replaced by electric motors operating automatic—almost human— machines, many a slow and tedious process has been eliminated. The factory worker's task of yesterday is made pleasant by his command of this magic power. The Crane Company's plant at Chicago—electrical throughout—is n model of industrial efficiency. Its 10,000 horsepower of driving energy is brought by three small wires from a distant power plant. Then, electricity drives the machinery which handles the coal for heating, cuts the steel, sifts the sand and sorts the material—in fact does everything from scrubbing the floor to winding the clock. Such an institution io marvelous—superhuman—made thus by the man-multiplying force of electricity. T h e General Electric Company has been irutrumental in effecting this evolution. First, by developing ouccessful electrical generating and transmission apparatus to furnish economically this modern form of power. Secondly, through many years of active co-operation with hundreds of manufacturers, it has j::s3tercd tha art of applying the use of electrical energy to a multitude of needs. And finally, through branch offices and other distributing channels, ita producis are made accessible to all.

CHEMISTRY CLUB Chemistry Club held its meeting on January 9. James Bucci gave a paper on rubber. He gave a short history of it and I he countries where it is found. When first discovered no one had any use for it. Sir Francis Drake saw the Indians bouncing something. He took it back to England where, they tried to make cloth of it but were unsuccessful. Priestly found that it erased a pencil mark, hence the name rubber, its original name being catchue, Later England made use of the material for coating cloth, being unable to use it for the cloth itself. Macintosh first discovered this use — hence, the name of our raincoats. It came to New England with the pilgrims — who found that in summer it became soft and in winter hardened and cracked. Good v ear in playing witli it, tossed it accidently on the stove, where to his surnrise it hardened into a mass, He thus became famous in the discovery of vulcanization, Page 5 overseas. In the afternoon section conferences on India, China, Japan and Latin America were held, At these meetings the needs in the various countries were presented, Christian teachers are needed in all these lauds, Saturday, afternoon denominational meetings were held in the different churches, The people of Des Moines were most cordial and hospitable and it did us good to get the western point of view. New York is really not nearly as important as Chicago! The western universities have a spirit found nowhere in the East. But western cities are much dingier than our cities, for in all of them they burn soft coal. We started East again Sunday night on the' Boston Special, We spent most of Monday in Chicago where we had a busy day sightseeing. The Union Stock Yards, Marshall Field's, Moody Institute, Hull House and the University ol Chicago were the points of greatest interest. Tuesday morning we. stopped about fifteen minutes at Niagara, Ontario, and had a glimpse of tlic Horseshoe Falls, the rapids of the Niagara and the Whirlpool, The only thing we slept through was the Mississippi.

Page 6 DRAMATICS CLASS Lonllliliccl from page I interest of the audience keyed up to itic highest point. Tne second play will be "The Kitsliiiglu," a tragedy. 'J. here are some very tense moments in this sketch. iUyianwy Williams plays tne part ol the mother whose son is condemned to death for conspiracy in an uprising' against the government. Kather than let her sou dishonor himself by "turning state's evidence," she prevents her (latit;iiier-in-law (Mario Marry) troll) aiding him by burning tnc list ol names of the conspirators. 'the tltircl play is in a light, fantastic vein, The authors of " The Wonder flat" call it a Harlcc|tiinade, and very aptly did they name it, The play deals with the love affair of Harlequin (Mary Grahn) and Columbine (.Alicia Ballaglij. It is through I'uchinello, an old peddler (Alyfanwy Williams) that the two are brought together. To Columbine he gives a magic slipper which has the power of attracting love. Columbine finds that he is telling the truth, for she no sooner puts on the slipper than the old peddler begins making violent love to her. Later he sells Harlequin a wonder hat which gives the wearer the power of invisibility, Imagine the funny situation when Pierrot (Elizabeth Archibald) who professes to despise Columbine irrst makes love to her and then to her maid, Margret (Elsie llanbtiry), when the latter puts on the slipper. Harlequin, who is invisible, is perplexed and enraged at the state of affairs. The trouble he causes when he takes the hat pin out of .Margret's lint gives him huge satisfaction. finally, the sudden appearance of I'uchinello puis an end in the love making much to the delight of Columbine and Harlequin, and to the infinite disgust of .Vlargret, Costumes for the cast of "The Wonder Mat" are being procured from Tains, New York, the same company that furnished the costumes in " The Yellow Jacket." All the art work is in charge of Mary McCarthy, '20. Students who desire reserved seals may obtain them by presenting their blanket tax cards and paying fifteen cents extra, Sketches in color of Pierrot, drawn by Alary McCarthy, will be sold during the intermissions, This plan met with such big success last year when "The Yellow Jacket" was given, that the committee in charge decided to repeat it. The sketches will be postcard size, suitable for stunt books, SCIENCE CLUB Continued from page 1 in having their college chosen as the place for the next convention, when they will try to outdo Thcta chapter as hosts. On the afternoon of January 2 Kappa Xu Fraternity, meeting in convention in the auditorium, was addressed by Dr. Brubacher. The subject of Dr. Brubachcr's discourse was "The Function of the Fraternity in the New Educational System," and the pertinence and timeliness of the topic invested, it with a personal quality which brought every word home to the assembled delegates. The audience, comprising students of all the leading universities throughout the countrv and 'graduates in every walk of life, unanimously agreed that seldom had they heard a man with such advanced ideas on the great educational problem of American Democracy, The con- STATE COLLEGE NEWS, JANUARY 15, 1920 ciseness and simplicity which characterized the address made it possible to present the problem, its solution, and the part of the fraternity in solving it, with a minimum of words ami of time, Dr. llrubacher said that the educational system of to-day cannot endure for its fundamentals are incompatible with the ideals of democracy, It is builded on a Special Rates to Students foundation of human weakness, of selfish desire.
