The recipients read, in part, in their Qlltc is teaching in Ithaca next year

R U T H E,
T h i s is it new idea which Dean Nelson has instigated at State college. Therefore, it : s quite experimental in nature at the present time; and, as with all
experiments, necessitates considerable observation in order to ascertain the results
At this point, data are not yet sufficient to predict the conclusions,
T h e group which received Ibis privilege has been carefully selected. From tht
213 students named on the Dean's List, 17b. or 82.5',c, of these are nut requested
lo file excuses. Absences from assembly during the pasl semester account for
the fact that 1° of those named on the Dean's List for scholastic achievement
must still file excuses. The remaining IK were not grunted the privilege due
to other reasons.
T o date, it has been deemed wise to check on several of this select group in
order to inquire whether or not the increase in number uf absences over those
of last semester is due to a misconstruing of the meaning carried by the letter.
Arc those students able to attend perhaps only one class per week and still
"make the grade"!' If so, ii may be that they are justilied in their absence
from that particular course in case the class holds no particular interest for
them. However, since the College docs have standards lo maintain, should
students not regard them seriously? If a trust has been placed in them, should
they not guard it as they would a personal possession? Should they not keep
their classroom appointments?
At this point no one can say whether the
suits and
experiment will give positive results and

More thought given ir. all angles of the problem righl now might mean the
coninuing of a very worth while experiment. Now is the time to think and to act.
A new rule for formal dances ai State college has been inaugurated by the
College administration, as announced on page one of thi^ issue. This rule will
be regarded as one lo be upheld by rverv State college student. It goes into
effect Immediately and will be enforced at the next formal dance. Sophomore

in conducting all of their affairs as students ai ibis college have enjoyed, il is
believed that thev are capable of using proper judgment in their self-administration, However.'when the privileges, are abused lo the extent that the conduct
of a few studellls is siillieienl to place blame upon the whole College, il is time
thill something is done.
f o r m a l dances have had tune limits set upon them.
I hesc limits are not
unreasonable, in fact, tiny are always agreed upon by the stiideni committees
in charge. It appears dial a custom has arisen whereby ihe dancing is merely
transferred at the closing hour from the original dance floor lo others aboui
Ihe city. News such as has been broadcast concerning student conduct at parties
and daiiccs at State, whether true or not, does not place Stale graduates in an
eligible posiiiou to receive a teaching post in any community, We can enjoy
our fun and have our dances and siill maintain the professional init'Rrity of State

simply for a few extra hours of dancing?
