Apply State College Orchestra. Castella I lees, president; Eleanor Abranis, secretary.. Qualifications.—(I) An instrument in your possession. (2) Ability to appear for practice Tuesday evenings between 7:15 and 9 o'clock. Home Address.—380 Western avenue, Telephone West 3470-W. You have read the advertisement —be the first to answer it. The qualifications are easy to meet but are, however, very important. You will notice that we don't want the 'cellist without the instrument—we have no money with which to buy you one. You will also notice that for fear of scaring some one away we did notsay anything about ability to play it. However, we judge that yon will be able to read the notes and pick out the parts at the required orchestra practice, The drilling of each group of instruments over the difficult passages is especially valuable, so that if you do not know your part at first you will have mastered it with Mr. Candlyn's thorough attention to each of the parts. Opportunity is given each member to practice his part at home, 11 is a necessity, moreover, that you be able to attend rehearsals regularly, whether or not you arc obtaining credit in the course. The efficiency of the orchestra as a whole depends largely upon this fact. After hearing these simple qualifications, can't you consider yourself eligible? We hope that you won't think of regular attendance as a weekly bore to you, for it is the source of thorough pleasure to the members in the orchestra at present. The enthusiasm shown by the unanimous desire of the orchestra to take tbe music home should be very encouraging to you. The present registration in the orchestra is twenty-five, a considerable increase since last year. The increase in the noise we can make is proportional to the increase in our numbers. We can boast of the following instruments as appearing in our orchestra for the first lime: Trombone, played by Hayes, '25; the cornet, played by Miter, '25; the banjo-mandolin, played by Florence Dorsey, '23, and the banjo, played by Mayes. The flute, which hasreappearcd, is played by Crane, ''25. It is quite difficult, and, moreover, impossible for Hayes to play two instruments at the same time.

Continued on page 3 $3.00 PER YEAR G. A. A. TO HAVE SNAPPY FROLIC The first gym frolic of the year is going to be in the College gym on Friday evening, October 21. The gym frolics arc given by the Girls' Athletic Association, and this is the first opportunity of the year for all the G. A. A. girls to "get together." Let everyone who enjoys a hilarious time come dressed in bloomers and middle, Pull out your old sneakers, or buy new ones, and give them an initiation before wearing them to gym class. Show your spirit and wear your class colors. There will be new stunts, and a refreshment committee has been appointed. So you will be sure of eats (perhaps lollypops). All ye people who are searching for the fountain of eternal youth come to this frolic. You will feel as youthful as a child of twelve when the lights are snapped out and you are unceremoniously forced to leave a long time before you are ready. T O T H E PACIFIC IN 80 DAYS By Dr. Gertrude E. Douglas To complete the western picture, some cowboys sprang up from nowhere and gave us a line exhibition of horsemanship. VVe appreciated Ibis the more later, when we missed the round-up at Cody by a single day, owing to car trouble. The Yellowstone trail led us through some wierdly beautiful country in Wyoming, over prairie roads, mere trails in many cases, through rugged red and yellow •cliffs, almost bare of vegetation and with very few traces of human habitation. We wondered indeed where the childrein lived who attended the line rural schools which we passed frequently — and still more who paid the taxes to keep them going. For many miles we followed the old Oregon trail and our respect for the pioneers increased as we penetrated farther and farther into the desert and realized the hardships which they must have endured.- We entered the park from the east, through Cody and the Shoshone canyon, and, let me advise you, if you are contemplating a trip to the park some day, to go this way by all means. As far as scenery goes, the rugged canyon of the Shoshone river can boast of more beauty than' the park itself. Can you imagine our delight upon camping for the first time in a real primeval forest with pine needles, a mossy creek, wild flowers resembling those we find_ at home, with the sun setting behind a huge crag of deep red rock? I am appalled at the idea of telling you anything about the Yellowstone! .1 can simply say that the hook descriptions are not overdone, and that the photographers can never do it justice. You must go and sec it for yourself! I smile now as I recall my first impressions, culled from geography books.

That the young people of this country realize the magnitude of its importance to them and to future generations is evidenced by their attitude at the present time. One of the farthest reaching religious organizations, embracing the youth of several nations, has taken for its slogan "A Warless World by 1923."' A few weeks ago President Hibben of Princeton University, in his matriculation sermon, suggested that an association of students in the nation's universities be formed to assist the Washington conference to end the international race for .supremacy in armaments. As a result 1,200 students of Penn State College have unanimously resolved to challenge the students of Europe to join the undergraduate bodies of America in such a concerted effort that there will be no doubt that the men of the future desire permanent peace. They further propose that every college in the land send delegations on December 3 to the Disarmament Conference to present their pleas in the name of the nation's young manhood to "end wars." When one considers that war eats at the foundation of the future, that it claims the young men as its victims, such resolutions and movements have particular significance. THE LIFE OF ABBIE A.
