Who Reads Your Mail?
Some of our more curious students have
discovered a new source of interesting literature, and in their own little way have
been getting no end of amusement from
their little "find."
The time is any time and the place happens to be our student mail box. The people who are responsible for this breach of
decency merely go to the box which promises to contain the most interesting mail
and read it through.
Our mail box is there for our convenience, and what mail may come to us we
expect to open and read. This view and the
enforcement of it may hamper those who
are working their way through college via
the mail box. It may disappoint those who
rely on the mail box for their reading matter. But the arrangement will be perfectly
satisfactory to us.
And us is you. You may not like the
grammar, but even you snoopers, perhaps
especially you snoopers, would not object
too strenuously to privacy for \onr mail.
Do the others and they'll probably get the
idea and do you.
Interclass Rivalry
Outstanding among the red letter days
on every college calendar are those on
which the sophomores engage the freshmen
upon the field of interclass rivalry. Tomorrow marks another of these traditional
battles on the State College campus.
It is at these periods of organized rivalry that real class spirit has a chance to
manifest itself. There can be no doubt but
that such combats stir up the greatest fervor among the lower classes. Still, il. need
not confine itself solely with them. Juniors
and seniors will have an opportunity to
root for sister classes.
Rivalry is not something to be compared to the Spanish civil war, but is, in the
last analysis, a means of further orientating
the freshmen to the ways of college life—
teaching them that all work and no play
makes Jack a dull boy. Class loyalty is
something worthy of development, and
rivalry is a sure method of aiding this development.
It is not by the number of shower-duckings and outfits of wearing apparel ruined
that the winning class is judged, but by its
wholehearted participation and cooperation in such organized encounters as pushball, hockey, and stunts. Each class is
given the opportunity to display its best in
the field of sports, music, debate, and dramatics. These are opportunities that should
not be overlooked by lower-classmen if
rivalry is to play its part in college life.
Again, tomorrow is Campus Day!
Rivalry will be the major theme of the day
—let's see some class spirit.
