On Tuesday, March 12, Dean Nelson in a very clandestine conference at ihe issued letters to 176 State college students. These were not the usual "billets Capitol's VYomlcrhar . . . I hear that doux," but letters of congratulation. The recipients read, in part, in their Qlltc is teaching in Ithaca next year letters, "Your scholasic achievements and attendance record justify release . . . he and Hush will probably need from the regulation that requires the Piling of an excuse form for each absence. plenty of elbow grease . . . reports T h i s privilege is granted to you fur the spring semester.

R U T H E, WILLIAMS DAN VAN LEU VAN 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 negali' he discontinued. Dean Nelson believes thai responsibilitj can be given no more rapidly than very true, 'file question remains, persons can assume it. This statement sponsihility ?" " H o w rapidly can State college students 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. Tllh'. NEW l-'OKMAI. DANCE KULE 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 Soiree. Students should not regard this as something which has been placed mi them willl no jiM cause behind il. When siudcnls are given as much liberty 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 college.
