If a little of the pep which the students expend in foretelling their sad fate after mid-years were used now in singing there would be a real sing in assembly.

SENIORS' FIRST DEFEAT T h e last of the G, A.

Isidoes Sanicl) W e often wonder just how o u r American c u s t o m s of college life and activity appear to a person w h o may have been accustomed lo soi iewhat different ways of doing t h i n g s . Many times we have lo keep on thinking without ever having l b chance lo find out But Mr. Isidoe.-, Sanicl, a graduate of ihe University of the Philippines, has kindly consented to tell us what he thinks of our life as American college students. Mr. Sanicl, after g r a d u a t i n g from the University of the Philippines, came to this country and -spent some time visiting several of the m o r e noted universities in t h e United Stales, such as H a r v a r d , Columbia, University of Michigan, and Chicago University. Later be came to State College lo lake up advanced work. Al the p r e s e n t tiim- he is also taking a course in Library Science at the State Library School. D u r i n g the time be has spent in these American colleges he has had ample o p p o r t u n ity to note the attitude of the college g r o u p . According to him one of the o u t s t a n d i n g features of the university life here is the emphasis placed on tradition, In most of the larger colleges ii is the basis or foundation upon which college activity is built. Here at Slate tradition is mil observed as religiously as at other colleges. T h e universities in the Philippines are c o m p a r a t i v e ly new and so lack ancient t r a d i tion. But at the present lime this is being built up after the American plan. American athletics are practically the same as those on the Philippine Islands, because the latter forms arc patterned after the former. T h e only big difference is that the Filipinos have no Rugby football, but in its place they substitute association football or soc'Conlinued on page 4 APOLOGIES TO BROWNING G r o w hold along with me T h e worst is yet to be T h e last two weeks for which the first were made.

The following is a clipping from a "News" of January 13, 1921: "Another subject which was brought up in assembly was that a great many students study, write, or knit during chapel. Marjorie Potter suggested that the student body should pass a resolution against this practise. This suggestion was followed and hereafter all work of every kind will be left outside." On the following issue of January 20, 1921, an editorial, of which this is a part, appeared: "I low good it seemed to have everyone vote in favor of the motion that was brought up in assembly two weeks ago—namely, that mi one should bring books, lunches, etc., to chapel. Hut how much better it seemed to have this vision reali/.ed \ r o one forgot, but everyone came empty handed, with nothing to do but give his best attention to what was going on." Do you think that anyone could truthfully write such an editorial at the present time? Perhaps the motion wasn't stated in so many words, but even if it wasn't, it's supposed to be an unwritten law that this custom is lasting and not one that has to be voted upon annually. Have you been doing YOUR best to make this a permanent thing? WAKE UP *24 What a bunch of students we have become. We admit it's a good thing—with prospects of the coming two weeks before us, But when those two weeks are over, let's get back to being a regular college, besides being students. Every regular college has a freshman class at least half subdued before this time of the year. Alas, are. the sophomores so busy with the science of the soul that they cannot attend to this important part of their business? Their sister class believes '24 can do its duty well if it will take the energy. We most certainly do not desire 'hair-pulling mobs, hut we do hope to sec college traditions kept and freshman rules obeyed. And where is the courtesy due the seniors from the freshmen? it is impossible now for a senior to plow through the mass of freshmen who stand in the way of lockers. And are the freshmen obeying rules? Watch their violations. Of course they should be ashamed of not keeping Stale's traditions, hut they must he taught what a shame it is. The sophomores are tlhe acknowledged preservers of college tradition and freshman rules, and this fact 'has always been lived up to by other classes. Wake up, '24; your sister, '22, calls you. Make '22 proud of you. A Senior. ABOUT T H A T PRIZE Do you want a free Pedagogue? Why not write out that clever joke you heard in class yesterday—the one your favorite professor sprang for tile first time—and baud it In some member of the Pedagogue hoard/ A free copy is being offered to the student who submit; the best joke on a member of the faculty, Another copy will .he given as a prize for the host juke on any student. We ask only one thing, that these jokes be original. No jokes re-arranged from other college periodicals will be accepted. This is a splendid chance for the right person. Is that you? EXAMS AND EDUCATION Do you know the girl (or boy) wlho rushes around a week before exams, or even a day before, rattling off phrases of information us fast as she can talk, and begging every other person she meets to tell her something about this or that subject? There are quite a number of them around State Col lege—just watch out for them this week! Do you ever wonder how much tihey really dp know? .Anyone would think that to them the chief aim and object of education was to cram as much as possible into one set of brains in order to supply material for an examination. If anything is learned that is not asked for, it is accounted as a product of wasted energy. What an awful attitude this is to take toward education and examinations! Everything we learn is a basis for our future ideas and progress in life; we can never know too much. If we learned the required lessons suggested by our instructors, there would be no need or desire to rush wildly about at the last moment attempting to get enough knowledge to pass an exam. Nave you ever noticed that the people wdio have this habitarethoi.se whose favorite motto seems to be "Ignorance is bliss"? '24. FACTS OF INTEREST Our calendar is of peculiar interest this year. Those who wrote the date two weeks ago noted 1-9-22. About three weeks from now 2-2-22 will appear, and in the last week of the shortest month those who are writing dates will use 2-22-22.

T h e r e ' s many a seaman's bosom Will heave with a sobbing breath W h e n the g i a n t g r a y .sea-mastiffs Steam out to drink their death. So we called to (heir keepers, And we stood and watched them drown; Dogged and dour and silent. O u r (logs of the sea went down, Died for a word ami vision, While (the wise ones prattled of peace, And the keen ones sketched new dreadnoughts W h e n the ten y e a r s ' truce should cease, H e a r t s of men, ye are shifting As the shifting s a n d that blows, But the deep-drowned 'heart of iron Is steadfast to wdiat it k n o w s ; I lad still a watch to keep Against the day of new-born fray, Shaking the peaceful deep. W h e n the licet went steaming seaward, And the other fleet drew in, T w o grim half-moons of battle In a m o r n i n g twilight thin, Ere ever a gun had spoken, Men heard a seaman shout, And—t'ho.-e gray points that prick the wave, Are they m a s t s and funnels, or do we rave? They rise, they loom—from its resting-grave The P h a n t o m Fleet rides out! Up from the floor of ocean, Gray with her ancient slime, D r i p p i n g arose the dreadnoughts, T h e monsters of their time, Rolling brine from their scuppers, Rocked by an unseen swell, T h e y bailed the y o u n g e r squadrons, I'oeiuan anil friend as well. " W e bowed our heads to the ocean, W e drank her bitter brine; We went to our death uncoiupiered, Mighty sihips of the line; We had carried our lives like banners, But gladly we laid them down, AH for a word and a vision And an end that Peace should crown. " W i l l ye m a k e of us a mocking? Shall we have died for naught, W h e n we veiled our heads with the waters A n d gave up the light unfouglit? W e are the P h a n t o m Squadron With the barnacles on our rails, And when we rise to battle, By God, ye shall turn your tails!"

So one fleet faded eastward, And one licet faded west, And the wise ones told the story In the words that pleased them best; But the seamen know—and they tell it s o — T h a t when men's hearts were hot.

In the United States the interest in the game is more intense. It seems to be an American characteristic to forget everything else in the absorbing excitement of the game. In addition to this the American college girl seems to possess more enthusiain at an athletic event than do their -sisters in the Philippines. In the latter place no girl without American training would think of cheering at a game. Mr. Saniel finds the American college professor totally different from the old fashioned native professor of his own islands. Our faculty are friendly and always ready to help in all social functions and athletic contests. They maintain a very cordial relationship with tlie student body. A Filipino professor would not think of doing such things. T o Jiim it would be beneath his dignity to mingle with the s t u d e n t s in any way. As a result of tin's the American student does not seem to have the same serious attitude toward scholastic work. Social functions play an extremely large role in college life. T h e thing which Mr. Saniel points out as a s u m m a r y of the whole subject is the fact that the American college is the model after which those in the Philippines arc taken. T h e faculty is largely composed of Americans o r A m e r i c a trained men. T h e entire w o r k i n g plan is modelled after our own system here in the United States. PROPAGANDA Dr. Charles Upson Clark spoke in assembly Friday on " H o w P r o paganda W o r k s , " Because of his splendid training both at h o m e and abroad and his interesting c o s m o politan experiences, he was able to give to the students a very entertaining and instructive lecture. of affairs <uul returned to him. This s o r t of thing, though seemingly insignificant, produces the desired effect. Distorted tales are those which m a y m o s t easily deceive us even wiuh pictures, as in the case of an account of a Bulgarian atrocity against a Grecian bishop, T h e facts were t h a t it was a Grecian atrocity the details of which w e r e reversed and a u g m e n t e d by a Grecian correspondent who went so far as manufacturing and photographing a corpse of the bishop, who was nowhere near the scene of action. A n o t h e r case of deliberate lies was that of the I liiiigarians who whined about the Rumanian devastation of their c o u n t r y when all over were signs of a b u n d a n t luxury. So steeped in the untrue stories, heard of the Rumanians, were people in foreign countries, that even after visible proof of their falseness they continued to believe the lies. Speaking of present situations whioh give rise to p r o p a g a n d a , Dr. Clark referred to the 'situation in T r a n s y l v a n i a , which, by the peace treaty, was given to Rumania. T h e protest of H u n g a r i a n bishops against t h e natural d e m a n d s of the victor was printed in an American magazine, although it was but a distorted form of p r o p a g a n d a . A s an e x a m p l e of true p r o p a g a n d a Dr. Clark told of a Rumanian boy of his own acquaintance who suffered m u c h in obtaining an education because of the Hungarian strictness, and vVhosc family was severely persecuted in lime of war for no reason whatsoever. Having warned us of what to look for in the stories we hear, he concluded by saying that even when they are authenticated by photog r a p h s we should not accept them verbatim. BROS., INC.
