Albany High Gymnasium Construction of Buildings in Albany Assured in Bid for Fund (Knickerbocker Press, Sunday, March 12) Construction of the. proposed additional building to the New York State College for Teachers in Albany seemed assured yesterday, ivlicn an appropriation of $65,OIK) needed to buy land adjoining the college site was asked in the senate as part of the administration's supplementary appropriation measure. While there is as yet no appropriation for additional structures, the purchase of land adjoining the college gives good indication that such an appropriation will be made at the 1923 session. The appropriations being in yesterday's "supplementary" appropriation bill came as a surprise to friends of the College, If action had not been taken this year on tile State College bill as introduced in the senate at last year's session by Senator Frank I- Wiswall, the state would have lost $5,000 on the option. The option dale expired February 22, but extension of the time was granted. The property which the total appropriation of $70,000 purchases for use of the State College is located between the Albany High School and the College, between Washington and Western avenues. Proposed plans provide several buildings for the expansion of the College. These include a separate structure in which to house Milne High School. With this addition practice teaching would be greatly facilitated and would permit a larger attendance at the College, as well as at the Milne High School, in addition to relieving the Continued on page 4 SUBJECT Ellen Sheenn, President MEN After much preparation instigated chiefly by John II.

Mr. Saniel is a graduate of the University of the Philippines and has had a great deal of experience in Educational work. It's peculiar bow some things seem to be "catching" just like the measles, the whooping cough, etc. —contagious do they call it? A week or two ago in Chancellor's Hall the movie, A Man Without a Country was shown, At some time during the performance a picture of Abraham Lincoln was Hashed on the screen. A group of boy scouts who were present immediately on sight of the great patriot became so enthusiastic that they aroused the entire audience. The auditorium fairly shook, and it was only a short time before every person present felt at least a part O'f that enthusiasm that the boys showed. This is only one of the examples of the way in which pep and enthusiasm runs throughout a crowd of people. If it works in a theatre where we arc thrown in with a peppy audience for the space of only an hour or two, what would be the result if vvc actually associated with an equally enthusiastic crowd every day in the week, four weeks in a mouth, and nine months in a year? What would be the result in State College? Vol. VI, March 20 No. 24 O. A. B. He must indeed be blind and deaf and secluded on a desert island who will not know by next week, at least, of the all-important significance of April 1—to us at State College, vvc mean. In contrast to our unfortunate above mentioned friend, the rest of us know that April 1 is the date for the long heralded Alumni Bazaar. By the first enthusiastic announcement in student assembly and the recent information gained from the busy student committees and from last week's paper and today's front sheet, we are being subjected to the most luring advertising process now known. And the reason that all of the inducements sound so attractive is because the products behind them actually are so. But then—everyone knows a project is worth while when OUR FACULTY and OUR ALUMNI are back of it. CLEAN UP WEEK March 20-24 Spring is here! The Spring winds are blowing; the snow is almost gone; somebody said that somebody saw a robin in the park. The superintendents are interviewing the seniors, the freshmen have a longing eye on Spring vacation and billet-doux will soon be out.

Once upon a tinie, in the land of long ago, there was a maiden who was appointed hand-maiden to the queen of the kingdom. Now the hand-maiden loved the pleasures of the land very much, and she disliked to remain in the kingdom all the day and wait upon (he queen. Therefore, one day, she said unto the queen "My kinswoman in the next kingdom is very ill, it is meet that I should go to her to minister unto her." And the queen took pity on the plight of her hand maiden and bade her go. And the hand-maiden went unto the house of her kinswoman, and there she enjoyed much pleasure and forgot the wiles by which she had gained her freedom, And after she had wasted many hours, she returned unto the queen, and, when asked, said, "My kinswoman is better," .And again one day, she wasted her time and did not the task set for her by the queen. And when the queen questioned her concerning the task, she suddenly became 'ROUND THE COLLEGE Augusta Knapp, '22, spent the week-end in Ballston Spa.

FACULTY NOTES THINK IT OVER Dr. Brubacher has received from Nicholas Murray Butler, chairman of the National Committee of the United States for the Restoration of the University of Louvain, a letter asking faculty and student aid in a nation-wide movement to collect, through small subscriptions, money for the completion of a new library building at Louvain. Columbia University has already inaugurated a movement fashioned after the plan used in France which limited individual subscriptions to one "sou," but which netted over 200,000 francs. With the National Committee of the United States, Cardinal Mercier feels that once the students of America back this movement the plans for the completion of the library may be made. On Monday there will be a faculty council meeting in Dr, Brubacher's oflfice. wan and faint and murmured, "My queen, I have felt ill." And the queen, finding in her face weariness, excused her from the task. After this hand-maiden had done this many times, the queen became wearied of the excuse, and the hand-maiden found that she must do her tasks. But there came toiler mind another way. When the queen questioned her concerning her tasks, she smiled and made conversation with the quccli about other tasks and that task also, but not whal she had done toward it. And the queen said unto herself, "She likes her tasks; she speaks of more than I ask." And the hand-maiden did so all her days, but when she came to the judgment seat of the gods, Zeus looked sternly at her. And he gave command, saying, "Let this handmaiden set about to finish all those tasks she should have done on earth, and let her thereafter always finish her tasks." And the scribe in writing opposile her name in the book of men, smiled as he wrote, beginning, "She that ptittcth it over on the faculty " On the first page is a brief account of Miss Futterer's reading of Monsieur Beaucaire.

And just next door is its main laboratory with the best equipment for testing, standardizing and research at the command of capable engineers. Then down the street a mile long—are other buildings where electrical products are made by the thousands of electrical workers who daily stream through.
