Everyone of us k n o w s , rather vaguely perhaps, that llie alumnae have started a campaign for the Stale College Hormi-lory Fund. We, who are: still u n d e r g r a d u a t e s and thus very familiar with the aciual living conditions of students, Whether our homes are in Albany or mil, realize to ihc utmost the great need for college d o r m i t o r i e s here, It is the personal business of each one of us, from every freshman lo every senior, lo understand Ibis new plan fully and lo further it with all the power in us, 'I he plan is brielly t h i s : all alumnae are asked lo pledge thai it is their intention to c o n t r i b u t e twenty ($20 00) dollars a year for live years lo this D o r m i t o r y Fund. T h e payment of this money is not colli' pulsory. If, for any reason, the one who pledges himself finds that he is unable lo meet his obligation because of some unforeseen trouble, he need mil pay. 'Pile m a t t e r is left to our own sense of honor. Each g r a d u a t i n g class, as it leaves Slate College, is to be asked lo help in I he work as well as those men and w- en who are alumnae now. Without even analyzing our position as lo this new m o v e m e n t college spirit makes us want to help all we can. Not many of us can come to Stale College for four years without learning lo love our Alma Mater and w i t h o u t being filled with a desire to repay her for all thai s'he has done for us, intellectually ami socially. The sense of loyalty and g r o u p feeling which we have made o u r own here will help us t h r o u g h o u r lives. Almost all the o t h e r colleges have e n d o w m e n t funds raised and added to by the alumnae. Are we going lo he behind Vassar, Colgate, Smith, Harvard, and the rest in supporting the future a d v a n c e m e n t of our colleger' H o w can we expect New York State to think that we are in earnest about our needs and our betterment when we do n o t h i n g for ourselves? If we succeed in backing the D o r m i t o r y Fund effectively and make it a working reality, the slate will see that we act and are not merely talkers and lookers-on. She will see thai we are worthy of help from her. T h e alumnae are responding lo the plan most generously. T h e first pledge from one of their number was for one t h o u sand ($1,000) dollars. We, I he alumnae of the future, must keep up the standard that they are setting for us. On a dollar and cent basis, we owe to Stale College the hundred dollars which is asked of us. If we did not have the services of die T e a c h e r s ' Agency here at college lo help us secure positions, we should have to pay sixty or seventy ($70.00) dollars lo outside agency Continued on page 4 PAY FOR SENIOR HOP UP FOR PED! !

Until last year the college body took care of these two children, but last year the French Club look the whole responsibility. This year a portion of the proceeds from the French Fete went for this purpose. ,Tlic children, Francois I'ollet and Marie Jacob, both live in the most desolated region of France, in barracks made of rough boards, and of course during the cold weather they suffer imue.h from cold. The m o n e y we send helps to buy tood and clothing for them, and enables them to continue tit "school, SYSTEM Every m e m b e r of the State College Student Association will want to decide upon bis answer to these questions in preparation for the forum oil this subject, February 17. 1. W o u l d Stale College's reputation fur honesty be improved by an h o n o r s y s t e m ? 2. Is the present system of p r o e t o r i n g disturbing to the students t a k i n g tih'c examinations? 3. W o u l d the students be able to concentrate more on the exa m i n a t i o n s if the honor system were established? 4. Would reporting violations conflict with student loyalty? 5. W o u l d a student judicial body give as fair a judgment, in view of experience, as the faculty? 6. W o u l d the individual character of s t u d e n t s be s t r e n g t h e n e d or weakened by an honor system? 7. W o u l d the S'tndeul body have less cheating under an lion or s y s t e m ? 8.

Long, long ago, on the laud of men was a young mini who never had s m i l e d ; ' a n d he was a y o u n g man of keen eyes. One night in a dream a herald of the gods appeared to the sinileless y o u n g man, and be said unto him: " T h e g o d s have resolved lo help the race of man and to lei •fhein read the mis takes of their fathers. T h e y have chosen you lo gather together the chief of faults of man and write them on a stone tablet for I he son.', of man to read." When the y o u n g man awoke, he remembered the dream, and set forthwith lo the task. Hut first he hewed out many tablets of stone and laid them under a mighty tree. Then he sat by [he side of the road and wrote on the first tablet of all that passed by. And soon one tablet was full and he began to chip the faults of man on the second tablet. •And uiie day there came lo the man a young man who said, " C o m e : lei us travel this way together, and be friends." Ilul the lirsi young man only .--cowled and began to chip a sentence beginning, " F o u l s that talk" The man chipped tablet after tablet and placed litem all about O n e day, a beautiful maiden came u n t o him and whispered unto him, " l i e happy with me," bin the man saw not the beautiful ina'dcn, bin the word he remembered, and chipped " L e a r n i n g " is happiness." And the sinileless y o u n g man grew old, and till his days he chipped by the side of the road, .And when he was very old. the gods sent word to him lo statu on the mountain j o u r n e y to O l y m p u s , lint the lablets were so many thai they bur dened the sinileless mail so thai lie could walk but a little way before rest. And- it was a year and a day before he arrived at the gate of the gods. And the beautiful maiden was dancing for Zeus, and the y o u n g man witli his eternal youth was (dicing with Apollo. And when the gods asked the sinileless man for his tablet, he pointed to ilia pile of stone. And Zeus smiled nl the man With Apollo, and gave the decree of reward to the sinileless m a n : " L e t the tablets form a wall in front of him, and let them be so placed that he may read them day after day, and let him live cternalh reading his tablets. And opposite bis name in the book of men, let the scribe write a sentence begin iiing: ' l i e that ahandoncth b •. fellowman for stone t a b l e t s - - . ' " 'ROUND THE COLLEGE BOARDS An a t t e m p t is being made to organize the p o s t i n g of notices on the bulletin boards in the main halls, namely: the one by the front door and the one near the women's faculty room, In a n o t h e r section of the " N e w s " the rules are printed which an: to be followed. Xow that everyone knows just what is to be done with regard to notices there should be no such confusion as there has been in the past. People seem to have gotten the idea thai the main bulletin board is a place for lost and found nut ices. T h e fact remains.'however, that it is not such a bulletin and never will be. T h e convmittce is asking for the cc-operation of every student in college in helping to make the bulletin b o a r d s more orderly and wella r r a n g e d . If you have been making niisiakesi please try to rectify them in light of the suggestions which are being made in this issue. '22. THE 10. Should responsibility for honesty at " S t a l e " resit with the faculty" or the student body? • A Senior, Last year we showed a picture of our little boy Francois I'ollet. Xow here is our little girl, Marie Jacob, twelve years old, and here is a I d l e r which the French Club recently received from her: " M e s c fliers petits amis, It is villi great p.easure that I received your gifts which you were kind enough to send me, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I take pleasure in sending you my photograph which I hope will please you. I still go to school, and am doing my best to study so as to m a k e use of it later on. i must say that it is not warm here; it is indeed very cold, for it is winter. W h e r e you are, perhaps it is less cold. 1 must tell you also that in our little village they are raising to-day a monument for the hcros of the Great W a r who died for France, Unfortunately fur me, I am one of those who share very deeply in t'he significance of this monument. My d e a r friends, I close my letter, t h a n k i n g you with all my heart for the generous gilts which you have sent, and offering you my best wishes and affections. De votre petite amie de France, Mai : Jacob." T h e a d d r e s s of this little French girl is: Marie J a c o b , c / o Fernando Jacob, Andilly, l i t e M a n i c . France.

STATIC COLLEGE NEWS, JANUARY 23, 1922 OTHER COLLEGE FUNDS Alumni have been showing a greater interest in their colleges within the last few years than ever before. A large number of universities and colleges have recently been c a r r y i n g on drives for funds, making it special appeal to their alumni, and they have responded with great loyalty. 'Hie graduates nl" a college are of course itliore interested in it than any one else, and from them must conic the strongest support for their Alma Mater. 'The money raised in the drives is in most instances toward general expense*, but a large portion of this will be used for dormitories and other buildings. When we are discussing plans for d o r m i t o r i e s at State College, it is iii'leresting to know how some o t h e r colleges have raised and arc r a i s i n g money for their dormitory expenses. T h e following arc sonic colleges which have recently made drives for funds. Amhurst Colgate 'Cornell ritimil Ion Harvard Mt. I l o l y o k c . .

T h e fluid has been running for thirty years and means an fiidownienl fund of $50 OOO.OfO. In line H a r v a r d drive each alumnus was expected to contribute twenty-live dollars for every live year- that he had been out of college. T h e Syracuse plan specified a certain a m o u n t for each year out. In many cases this plan docs not work very well since someone who has only been out for a few year'; will just pay his quota when he might be able to pay much more, and someone who g r a d u a t e d a long time ago cannot pay his given amount. "(live or get 330.33" was the slogan of the Colgate drive in 191S. This amount was asked for from each alumnus to make a total ol $1,000,000 plus the cost of a gym nasiuni. A new d o r m i t o r y is now being built, which will house eighty men. Continued on page 4 STATE ALUMNA WRITES An article on the "< Md Van Cortland i Manor H o u s e " by Marian A.

K. W e l l i n g t o n K o o T o speak the truth and work for h a r m o n y has always been the ideal t o w a r d which the Chinese people have worked through m a n y centuries. In her philosophy China has exalted t h e scholar above the soldier, In her history she has developed a tradition of peace. She still believes that to quarrel, plunder and murder, a m o n g nations as a m o n g individuals, are things disa s t r o u s to the world. It is at once the weakness of China and her s t r e n g t h that her spirit has been pacific where several oilier nations have been otherwise. At the turn of the century China began lo realize the weakness of her traditional attitude. Russia, G e r m a n y , and Japan gave her cause to fear the d a n g e r of e n c r o a c h m e n t s , and thai danger has not as yet a l t o g e t h e r disappeared. Military p o w e r in China itself led to disputes between civil and military men. T h e great war saw the landing of J a p a n e s e forces in the neutral territory of Shantung. -And then China's preparation to participate in the E u r o p e a n war served r a t h e r to accentuate differences within the country. Representatives tit Versailles did not settle questions thai are of great concern to ('hina. T h e s e questions might furnish causes for future war. T h e people of China a r e determined that the territorial integrity and political sovereignty of t i e Chinese republic shall be respected With great satisfaction, therefore, they authorised the Chinese delegates to attend the W a s h i n g t o n conference and work for a ha'-nioniou- and just s e t t l e m e n t of China's foreign relations.
