Y M FEBRUARY 26, 1920 $2.00 PER YEAR ALUMNI LOSE TO VARSITY Juniors and Frosh Win Preliminary Game COLLEGES FAVOR TREATY COMPROMISE Faculty and Students Vote Same On January 13 mure than four hundred colleges and universities participated in a straw vote on the ratification of the Treaty of Versailles. The result of our vote, 261 students and 25 faculty for a compromise between the positions of the Democrats and the Lodge reservations, compares with that of the majority of other colleges in the country, especially those in the Eastern Stales. A few southern colleges gave a plurality to ratification without any changes whatsoever, while Michigan and some other colleges and universities of the Middle West supported the Lodge program. In almost every instance the advocates of rejection were a poor fourth. An interesting phase of the straw vote lies in the fact that the faculty members of the colleges and universities distributed their votes in the same ratio as the students at the same institutions. Senators Lodge and Hitchcock both approved of the form of the questions and ballots, and the presidents of Columbia, Harvard, Princeton and Yale acted on the Advisory Committee of the movement. Both men and women students voted. Yale, Princeton and Harvard overwhelmingly favored comproContinned on page 4 ANNOUNCEMENT Kappa N'u sorority announces thait it will henceforth be known as the Chi Sigma Theta sorority. DEMAND FOR STATE COLLEGE TEACHERS IS LARGE Salaries Increased 25 Per Cent. The demand for teachers from State College is unusually large for this time of the year according to a statement made recently by Dr. A. R. Brubacher. The demand for teachers of French, Spanish and science is particularly heavy, and an increase of at least 25 per cent, over the salaries offered last year is noted. Last year the average salary for graduates of State College was under $1,000; to-day it is $1,200. Last year 137 students were graduated; this year the class numbers 160. Twenty members of the class to graduate in June have received offers, Small towns and villages are paying more than the cities. The minimum salary offered in Albany is $800; in Hudson $840, and in many villages $1,000. The Stale College team defeated the Alumni live last Saturday iu tlie Albany High School gymnasium by a score of 25 to 17 in the most interesting game of the season. The " gratis,'1 although a little out of training, displayed a brand of basketball which made the Varsity travel at high speed in order to come out on top. Manager Francis Fitzgerald, who is also captain of the Alumni team and holds down one of the forward positions, presented a strong line tip, Slanley Fitzgerald, who has a record for foul shooting, played the other forward position. O'Connell put up a good game at center and Hohaus and Cnrtin formed a strong defensive, Springmann started >the scoring in the first half when he counted on a foul shot. Hohaus opened up for the 'old timers'' with a neat overhand basket. Lo'bdcll came back for the winners with a field basket from the side of the court. Cnrtin retaliated for the Alumni and Stanley Fitzgerald's foul goal and field basket put the Alumni in front. Cassavaiu came back, however, before the end of the period with two field baskets and two foul points, sending the Varsity ahead by a score of 12 to 11. Continued on page 4 SOPHS BEAT JUNIORS Game Closely Contested One of the most exciting games of the season was witnessed in the gym Friday night when the sophs .beat the juniors by a score of 12 to 11. Due to the absence of the juniors' clever forward both teams were evenly matched and fought hard for supremacy. The sophomores kept I he lead throughout, the score at first half being 5 to_ 4, - * The junior guards worked hard but it was impossible to get the ball past the soph center, Knickerbocker, who, with flying leaps, caught the ball again and again and sent it to her forwards. SOPHS Forwards, Tela Cackciier, Helen Walsh. Center, Clara Knickerbocker. Side-center, Arline Wirth. Guards, Pauline George, Gladys Lodge.

However, it is expected that the matter will be taken up again at a future date, The junior-freshman quintet defeated the senior-sophomore live in a hard fought preliminary game Saturday night by a score of G to 4. Castellauo started the scoring for the losers from the foul line. Sherlock then came through with a field basket for the winners. Another foul point by Castellauo for the "evens " and a successful free throw by Bliss for the " o d d s " ended the scoring of the half. In the second period Sherlock scored another basket from the field and Bliss added another point from the penalty line. Linck made the only field goal for the seniors and sophomores. The period ended with a score of 6 to 4 in favor of the juniors and freshmen. Sherlock starred for 1921-23 and Linck for 1920-22. Score: Continued on page 4 DR.

The subscription rate is two dollars per year. Advertising rates may be had on application to the Business manager. Articles, manuscripts, etc., must be in the hands of the Editor before Monday of the week of publication. Editor-in-chief, Kenneth P. Holben, '20 Managing Editor, Elsie W.

Whish, '21 Marjorie Potter, '21 Louise Persons, '22 Elisa Rigouard, '22 AN EXPLANATION The reason for last week's lateness in issuing the " News " was a delay in getting the copy to the printer. It left the publication office on time but the hitch occurred between here and Hamilton street. THE CUT SYSTEM For the past week or so a preponderance of the small talk indulged in during leisure moments has been upon the attendance rules. More than half the student body have already been compelled to use their precious cuts, due to the recent weather conditions and illness. The thought of wasting such perfectly good excuses seems distressing to the economical soul. Then, too, there is the attitude of the faculty to be considered, How are they to know whether one is unavoidably or intentionally absent? It is generally understood that a cloud of discredit hangs over the intentional absentees. The tendency now is to use the cuts immediately so as to take advantage of them. It seems fair that a student should have the privilege of a certain number of cuts, but it has also 'been suggested that excusable absences should not take up these cuts. •22. THE LIGHTS Coleman has 'been provoked to the point of anger a number of times lately because the lights in the locker rooms persist in remaining on for two hours or more every night. Those who use the /'•'Jibe'" evenings have been asked to switch off the lights in the lockers when they are through with them. This is a reasonable request. That " we-should-worrywe-don't-ipay-for-'em" attitude is not commendable. Such a spirit could not be carried to its logical conclusion without disaster. It is to the best interest of every individual to guard the property of the State as he would his own. Let's remember the lights then, and do our bit toward cultivating anew that thrift incss which was the watchword of our New England fathers.

Frcar, Mrs, Brubacher, Mrs. Decker, Mrs. Douglas, Mrs. Coughlin, Miss Bennett, Miss Card. AN ATTEMPT This week we arc attempting a liew venture filling a seemingly long-felt need, We shall endeavor to maintain a column in this paper, .similar to that of large city dailies, in which delicate, general ami personal questions may 'be asked, and upon consultation with authorities we shall attempt to answer. We ask that all communications be addressed to "Miss Annabelle Ebel " and delivered' at the publication office before noon of each Monday. The name signifies nothing — simply a nom de plume in general for a committee of several catering to the students and faculty of State College. Published below will be found some items indicative of what we profess to attempt in the future. Dear Annabelle: Excuse this seeming familiarity, but 1 feel as though I had known you ever since I came to college. This column offers me an opportunity to broach a question which hitherto.I have kept hidden in my diary.^ " T o be or not to b e " is the gist of it all. Do not answer this plea hurriedly but deliberate over it nights on your pillow. Should a really nice girl of a discreet age allow an unusually attentive and very young man to stay later than 10.30 when calling on Sunday evening? Senior Prue. Your inquiry is typical of State College seniors. Before answering your question definitely we must know if this is not your first gentleman caller. Very likely he feels the need of a guiding sister hand. ; Is he, by any chance, a Union freshman? i Dear Annabelle Ebel: I am a freshman but I believe I have attracted the attention of an upper-classman. What shall I do? Perplexed Dido. If the young man continues his attentions find out from reliable sources his financial status and, if satisfactory, go to it; if not, ignore him and seek further. Dear Annabelle Ebel: Should a senior in college (my room mate) dye her hair? And am f expected to pay the taxi driver when I ask a young man to accompany me to a formal party? •21. If that is your room mate's only chance of salvation advise her to use sage tea daily. Your second question is difficult to answer. It all depends on who the young man is — your brother or some other girls'. Dear Annabelle Ebel; What would you do in a case like this? I went to a tea riot long ago. A faculty member handed me some tea and crackers. I hit a cracker which was stale. Should f have eaten it? Would social obligation cause me in such a case to risk indigestion? - Me. We desire some detailed information before we can risk answering such a query, MUSIC CLUB The regular meeting of Music Club was held Monday afternoon, February 23, at 4 p. ni. The following program was given: Piano Solo, 1-1 ope Persons, "22, Vocal Solo, Katherinc Stratton, '22, .Reading, Agnes Nolan, '20. Vocal Duel, Elsie Leonard, '23, Florence Dorscy, '23. Piano Solo, Dorthy Dangremond, '23, ,_ CHEMISTRY CLUB Chemistry Club met Friday at four o'clock. William Strain, '21, read a paper on " Cocoanuts," After describing the appearance of the cocoanut tree he gave a detailed account of the different uses made of the plant. Rope is made from the fibre, and the leaves are used for thatch. The juice distilled from the flowers is made into cocoauut wine. The cocoanut itself was then considered. During the war cocoanut shells were used as a source of carbon for gas masks. An interesting and novel feature of the cocoanut was explained. It seems pearls are often found in cocoanuts having the same chemical composition as those found in oysters. Mr. Strain remarked 'that this was a very timely subject. After a short business meeting the club adjourned. Professor Bronson has been home a week with a severe attack of laryngitis. Dorothy Banner, Edna Parshall and Earl Dorwalclt have charge of classes in chemistry and general science at the Albany High School. The second issue of the " Hormone " will be ready in a week or two. It has been found advisable to charge a subscription fee of fifteen cents, or five cents per copy, for the rest of the semester. The issue will be limited to those who have paid on or before the date of publication. SYRACUSE CONFERENCE Many Teachers Needed Yes, " Dcs Moines again at Syracuse!" Some folks laughed when the bulletin iboard said that, but it was quite true. The Des Moines message was brought to us in several ways many of the students at the Syracuse convention had been out there; Dr. Sherwood Eddy and others of the speakers spoke to us; we had access to part of the much-talkcd-of and mysterious "Exhibit." Saturday night at the banquet we were very thankful that we had had a cheer contest. You should have heard those colleges yell! Eighty Cornell delegates, twenty Elmira girls, twenty-five Union men, and all the rest —thev matte a great showing. Our chance came when Colgate gave State College a rousing cheer and we responded with " Hoi-ya. Rah! Rah! Rah! — Colgate." We used most of our yells, Elmira's clever, peppy songs made us green with envy. There were only eight of us State College people, Helen Fay, V '19, Marguerite Aldeii, '20, Lovisa Vedder, '20, Helen Chase, '21, Frances Stils.o'iij '22, Marion Hunter, '22, Beatrice Crislield, '23, and Ruth Ki-mnicy, '23. If you want to see our pictures look on the Y. W. 'bulletin board for the conference group taken on the steps of the Ag, building. Don't try to recognize the men holding the banner. At the"" last minute the photographer said that if we expected banners to show they should all be on the first row, so we passed ours down, The tall man just 'behind it is Paul Van Camp, of Cornell, president of the N. Y. Stale Student Volunteer Union. The newly elected president is Alex Stuart, of Union. We heard about many teaching vacancies. Do you know how desperately Home Economics teachers, music and drawing teachers, physical education teachers, and all kinds of teachers are needed in China, Japan, Africa and South America? Syracuse entertained us royally. It was another "wonderful conference." STUDENT ASSEMBLY The student assembly program for last Friday morning was quite varied in its character. After the members of Myskania had taken their seats, Mr. Schiavonc read the notices of student activities for the coming week. Then, Miss Archibold came forward to lead in practising the new air of the "Alma Mater." She asked all the students to watch the bulletin board for the posting of two new State College songs. Gus Crable led a short cheer practise, and urged all the students — the men, especially —-to support State at the basketball games. Mr. Schiavonc then announced that the rest of the hour would be devoted to class meetings, so the assembly adjourned to the rooms assigned to the different classes. CANTERBURY CLUB The Rev. Lawrence R. Kelly, vicar of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Albany, en'tcrta'ined members of Canterbury Club, Monday evening, with a lively talk on Arizona. His accounts of ghila monsters, cacti that produced everything from candy to hair upholstery for automobiles, his yarns of tenderfoot a'dventurcs with polar bears that come down from the mountains in 130 degrees of heat to lick up the ice from the refrigerator, his more serious investigation of wretched conditions among Mexicans and Indians, made the time pass quickly. Theodore Cassavant, '21, then read a paper written by Mrs. Katherinc Ingwire, of Albany, on St. Augustine's College, Canterbury. Pictures of Canterbury's quaint gardens and rich old buildings were of deep interest to the club. At a short business meeting the following key members were appointed for the rest of the year: St. Andrew's. St. Paul's. Cathedral of All Saints. Grace. St. Peter's. Freshman Class. Sophomore Class. Junior Class. * Senior Class. The next meeting will be held at St. Andrew's, Monday evening, March 22, at eight o'clock.

Don't be teliin' me no more about • Marie Wool-worth—I don't like . her, Our sevvin' club had a party last Thursday afternoon an we Iho't we'd get our glimmers on a - few girls we'd seen hangin' around Pearl street. They call that ,! "rushin"' in college, but I don't know why less it's cause we're such a ; fast bunch. Gee, Fgg, -they're some bunch. They all (5 of 'em) come chewin' gum an blushjn' in some spots 'u gcttiit' pale in others — nice girls! J Iho't Marie must be one of 'cm but 1 didn't know there names so I walked by them an says " E g g " softly, but it didn't seem to make any impression on them, so Marie couldn't been there. I'm glad you got your marks, it kinda cheers me up a little. If you think you got by, I must have gotten A's at least, if not more. [ was kinda skecred fer awhile here. I'll admit the dean is always a sociable fella but lately he's been a little more intimate with some. Why he ain't satisfied unless he's got a hole bunch outside his door an' then, after waitin' that long for him, he tells 'em they're apt to go skatin' too fast on such thin ice, an they better go home 'till they grow some 'more, or, to wait till the rest of the place ketches up with 'cm. He's always makin' such personal remarks. You'd like'the teas wc have down here, Egg. They call 'em student activities or sornethin' like that. Gee, there swell. Some girls flit' tcrs away on the piano an' a couple I more are tcachin' the fellas 'how to i lead. I guess by the looks most ' of the fellas down here are used to be-in' lead, cause if you say anythin' to 'em when they're dancin , they have to begin to count 7 all over again. I heard them teachers get about 25 cents learnin' the rest how to shimmic, but I wouldn't give my feet away for 25 dollars an' neither would you, Egg. We got candy an' cookies an' tea fer nothin' tho', so it didn't turn out so worse. You can play cards too, Egg, but you got to do it quiet, cause if you get boisterous an slammin' your fists on the table or rattlin' your cuff buttons or takin' off your coat, they're apt to get suspicious an' ask you what your playin'. I'm glad to hear you been shovelin' snow — that will be good for you later, Egg, But don't get in the habit of doin' it all night cause you'll have to have a better excuse than that, Yes, I see it's part out ol charity your doin' it, but when it comes 3 a. m„ remember what Pat. Henry said, " Char- ity begins at home or least comes back there," I don't see why you got G. Washington's birthday off an' wc didn't, Gee, they don't give you nothin' you don't take down here. I bet George was awful mad when he heard we wasn't cellcbratin' his birthday, but I'm go i n ' t o have one soon an' maybe we're goitt^ to have that off. Of course, Egg, we kinda specialize in brain development down here so's we couldn't be acspected to have so much vacation as you, could wc, eh, Egg? They hail a picnic from here to Syracuse last week-end. Conference er sornethin' like that, they called it, Somebody come up to me an' says, "your invited." But then I found out later you had to pay. an' 1 had my suitcase all packed, loo. Anyway I. says to myself, well, anyway, all the decent Gospel team fellas are engaged s.Q. there's no sense in me go-in', eh Egg? So I unpacked it an' began life anew in this dump. I hope you been sick, Egg, Most everybody has so you may as well be too. I come up on the car with a man an' be was sayin', " Yes, 5 times from 4 a. m, to 9." So many people been feelin' like that a lot lately. Jt must be the high cost of living—there's an' epidemic of that 'here too. I felt awful sick the last 3 days but I don't know what's the matter. One of the neighbors been brimgin' me broth 'n stuff — I guess that made it worse. She said someIhin' about flew, I don't remember first what, but I guess did, cause 1 ain't felt that way since. I hate to talk about myself, Egg, but birthdays will be birthdays an' they will come on the same day each year an' — mine comes next Tuesday. I got cnuf stockings but I do like gloves, Yours rcpressedly, Rose. P. S. — Some of the fellas up where you are come down to see their girls ucashunally, Egg — yes? Remember, don't tell me about that 10 cent girl no more. I never could stand girls which said, "My Gawd" — that's plajerizin', Egg. R.
