Prof. Risley Makes a Hit
Last Thursday evening- the Athletic
Council played host to the mien of
the faculty and student body at the
first smoker of the year. A goodly
representation of the faculty was on
hand at 8 o'clock. About two score
of men from the student body were
ready to greet them. On tables
throughout the gym were packs of
cards and cigarettes. Corn cobs filled
with good tobacco were also available.
The card sharks among the faculty
and students enjoyed quiet little
games, wFile those not so adept
found amusement
in impromptu
basketball games. After an hour or
more of these indoor sports Dr.
Power, chairman of the Athletic
Council, announced the main feature
of the evening, the speech program.
After being insufficiently introduced by the chairman, Prof. Risley,
a national authority on football and
a referee of note, gave a most interesting talk on the American College
Besides being an expert's
opinion on football, it also was a
masterpiece of description. Prof. Risley must be something of a poet' as
well as a historian and athlete, His
versatility of expression made) a great
hit with the frosh, History 2 people
and incidently with everyone else.
Dr. Brubacber was next introduced.
He expressed the ambitions of t'he
faculty'in hoping that State's prowess
on the athletic field would soon
spread to every place where college
athletics are talked of. As president
of the college he welcomed the men,
especially the new men. In closing
he hoped that the event would be the
forerunner of many similar events.
Coach Suavely was then presented
as the best known member of the
faculty. He took up the athletic possibilities of the year. In closing Dr.
Powers set forth the aims and purposes of the Athletic Council. When
all the smokes were gone the crowd
began to break up. The janitors getting tired of waiting, then gave a
gentle hint to get out by turning out
the lights.
Delegates to Silver Bay
Far up Lake George in a pleasant
little cove is a spot called Silver Bay.
To most folks this is merely a name,
an ordinary place where tiresome conventions are held; but to the seventeen girls who journeyed up there
last spring and lo the thousands and
thousands who have gone there from
other colleges, it is far more. It is
rather a sacred shrine to w'hich weary
pilgrims may turn for rest after a
strenuous year, a place of fine fellowship and new friendships, a place of
high ideals, of a broad outlook.
Every day was full of good things.
The official rising hell rang at seven
o'clock, hut when Vic Peterson's
trusty alarm went off at six, Vic and
Ruth Kimmcy routed the whole dele-
gation out of bed; and, dressed in
middies and bloomers, we hurried
down to the dock, where for full
sixty minutes Dot Dangremond kept
us practicing our college songs and
one particular song with which we
expected to win a beautiful silver loving cup. But you have not seen it?
Well, upon reconsideration, we decided to leave it there that HCNI year's
delegation might bring it home.
When we were sufficiently hoarse,
we were permitted to go to breakfast
if we were the fortunate possessors
of while buttons; but if the buttons
were green, we wandered about for a
half-hour trying to forget our hunger.

As yet, the activities of the sophomore class toward intimidating '26
have not been remarkably noticeable.
The knee of State's youngest class is
still held proudly rigid, and a goodly
number of high
school insignia
adorns her person.
However, gigantic plans, (he nature
of which has not been revealed, are
under way for the sophomore getwise meeting. This is scheduled to
take place in the gymnasium on the
evening of October 6. Miss Pierce
and Miss Pillingham will act as
chaperons. The members of both
classes are urged to avail themselves
of this opportunity to show thetr
st.'ong class spirit and loyalty to college tradition.

Schuyler and Yankee Doodle Houses
About fifty freshmen and juniors
assembled at College for their hike
on Saturday afternoon, September .30.
After wailing half an hour for a few
straggling freshmen and several busy
ittniors, the hikers started for Schuyler Mansion. The route of march
was down State street to Eagle, past
the Governor's Mansion, across the
lower cud of Lincoln Park, and on
downtown, It was a relief to reach
t'he Mansion where one could sit
under the trees or wander about the
house, thrilled by the stereotyped
voice of the guide saying: "And this
is the room General liurgoyne occupied as a prisoner; and this notch
was cut by an Indian tomahawk.
Yes, girls, please notice ——," After
everyone had
antiriues, tried to open locked doors,
handled the wool on the spinning
wheel in the at'ic, signed t'he register
and climbed pear trees to pose for
pictures, the party went on to Rensselaer, to view the outside of Yankee
Doodle house.
About dinner lime, the hikers returned by ones and twos, better acnuainted with t'he juniors and with
their own classmates.

Unusual Stunts a Feature
Y. W. received the Class of '20 on
Friday evening, September 29, and
what a splendid reception it was!
Never did the freshmen have so much
fun and their junior sisters were not
far behind. Y. W. revealed herself as
a most charming hostess and as an
entertainer—she is par excellence.
Everything went off just right, and
everybody enjoyed everybody else—•
so how could the affair help but be a
howling success!
We did not mind the receiving line
a bit. In fact it was great fun to
greet Dean Pierce and a few smiling
members of the faculty. The rest ot
the line was composed of fellow students, and what could be more satisfying than 'hearty handshakes with
old friends?
To make us more fully realize the
"esprit dc corps" of the evening,
Dorothy Dantfremond, '23, entertained
us with some music, and it was real
music! Music of the classical' type,
which was appreciated to such an extent that all syncopated rhythms
were absolutely forgotten for the
And then Ruth Kimmcy, speaking
in be'half of V, W. as its president,
formally (or should we say informally?) welcomed the Class of 1926.
She appealingly recalled the days ol
our youth in which our adventuresome, reckless spirit destroyed even
furniture and clothing- to attain its
end. As we developed in physique
and mentality and learned to inhibit
our erratic aims, we became more
rational and turned to the quieter
pursuit of reading. Now that we
have advanced to the stage at which
we arc appreciative of the " Idylls of
the King," let us consider our (inn
short years in college as a quest, And
the adventure on that quest will be
the adventure of friendship.

The opening of the college year, like
the first of January, is characterized by
a host o£ good resolutions. But collegiate resolutions arc formed as a result of
previous experience and a certain
amount of earnest thought, whereas
New Year's resolutions are often a consequence of watching the old year out
and the new vear in. Resolutions that
are as serious as our collegiate reforms
should consequently last longer and
show greater results than the " new
leaf" of the new year. When we say
that we intend to keep our work caught
.up this year let us at least not leave the
first week's work—just because it is
easy— until the following week. When
a junior says that he intends to be a
real friend to his frosh sister or brother,
let him not forget this injunction, although bis tasks are many and heavy.
And when the sophs say that they intend to chastise the frosh let it not be
an idle boast whose vagueness of purpose will be seen long before Movirigup Day. So let us each and everyone
make our resolutions—few or many as
we choose—but let us stick to them like
a fly to molasses.
At the receptions lately, when timid
freshmen have pointed out an attractive senior ami asked their junior sisters, "Who is that?" Ihey have been
baffled by the reply, " Why, that's
Grace Fox; she's on Myskania," Or
when they come running hack to a
waiting junior to proclaim " I just
met Betty Rentier; isn't she nice?"
they hear again, "Of course she is;
she's on Myskania." In the hall they
hear vague comments—" Dot has a
new chain for her Myskania l<cy," or
" There goes May Wood—Myskania
member." And naturally the freshmen wonder just what Myskania
Myskania, dear freshmen, is an honorary body composed of not less than
eleven and not more than thirteen
seniors chosen annually for high
scholarship, leadership, college spirit,
and general popularity. From the day
they enter college these students have
stood out for sincere effort in raising
the standards of State College in any
and every way. On Moviiig-up Day,
when juniors become seniors, the new
Myskania is chosen from the new senior
class. It is one of our highest rites, and
everyone sits very tense and still while
the old Mvskania members, one by one,
choose their successors. And when
Myskania has been chosen, it becomes a
great and quietly active power in our
college world. No one, perhaps, se-'S
its influence directly, but one always
feels it when eager scholarship rises;
when athletics, sports, and social events
stand out particularly line, clean, and
happy; when college publications become truly literary; and when the spirit
of sincere friendliness is most evident.
Sometimes Myskania appears in assembly, arrayed on the nlatform in cap
and gown, with the Myskania key, symbol of the honor due, gleaming against
the black gown. And when they appear
so before us we realize most deeply the
extent of their silent Influence, We
like to see them there. We would like
to see them there every Friday morning. Why not? Let's ask them to come
in cap and gown and sit on the platform every week this year.

far as material went I ought to have

clearly perceptive defect, which I can
only describe as listlessness, although
it was something less tangible than
that; a failure, rather, to give the last
ounce, to light for the last inch, which
was and still is an absolute necessity
for a winning football team.
I have become convinced that it
is a stark impossibility to develop a
winning combination on the field unless there is or there is developed a
winning atmosphere in the institution.
Football demands courage, heart and
lightning intelligence, but even these
requisites will fail unless there is
spirit and enthusiasm behind the

many nooks that had become so dear
