Would you walk a t h o u s a n d miles

body using caves as classrooms a n d
dugouts as dormitories?
s t u d e n t s actually have been doing
j u s t such things since t h e opening
of t h e present C h i n o - J a p a n e s e War,
A t N a n k i n g and other universities,

as barracks by J a p a n e s e troops. By

as Sian, Chengtu, a n d Kwenming,
where colleges are now re-opening.
This m a s s migration of s t u d e n t s
u n d e r t h e press of war conditions
h a s created a situation which needs
remedying immediately. T h e cities

circumstances, but obviously,
they still need help.
Last year the P a r E a s t e r n S t u d e n t
Emergency F u n d raised $18,808 for
Chinese student relief. This year
t h e I n t e r n a t i o n a l S t u d e n t Service
a n d t h e National
C h r i s t i a n Council, with the cooperation of t h e National S t u d e n t F e d eration of America, of which S t a t e
college is a member, a n d other n a tional s t u d e n t organizations
m a k i n g a united appeal to all colleges to raise $50,000 in order to
carry on the work of rehabilitating
these Chinese students.
W i t h t h e help of American college
students, these t h i n g s c a n be p r o vided. Always, of course, the bulk
of t h e money will be used to provide
t h e m i n i m u m necessities of life. Two
American dollars will provide board
for a Chinese s t u d e n t for five weeks.
T w e n t y dollars will cover his room
a n d board for the whole college year.
S t a t e college will cooperate in
t h e F a r Eastern Service F u n d drive
this year. An a n n o u n c e m e n t will be
m a d e in assembly one week from
Friday, a t which time a collection

Don't Look Now But—Mailboxes Are Moving
Oh, gee! I wonder where t h a t
mail box can be—so do we,
so do we, so do we."
This is going to be State's
now version of a " T i s k e t - a T a s k e t " very shortly for the s t u d e n t mailboxes are about to disa p p e a r from their familiar position opposite the lockers in
D r a p e r hall before we go home
for t h e C h r i s t m a j holidays.
W h e r e is the new domicile of
those "letter bearers," guys and
galses? It will be moved to t h e
corridor on the first floor of
H a s t e d hall near the Hygiene
office. And still more wonderful is t h a t there will now be
four sections to the mailbox instead of the present two. Progress h a s at last reached State.
Now when "billet-doux" and
w a r n i n g s come out and t h e r e is
a general "plop" of students, t h e
Hygiene office will be very convenient, don't you think?

"Dawn of a New Day" Message
To Ring Forth New Year's Eve
Next New Year's eve, every city,
town, h a m l e t a n d household will
unite to celebrate the New York
World's Fair of 1930, heralding Ihe
"Dawn of a New Day"—a day of
peace and progress in Ihe lives of
nations and peoples.
Grover A. Wbalen, president of the
New York World's Fair corporation.
Ihe greatest showman in United
States' history, calls for a gigantic
"get-together" of Ihe country thai
will radiate from the brilliant display of lights in Times Square.
It wilt be a coordinated d e m o n s t r a tion, planned to unite ihe millions
of Americans in ihe service ol an
enterprise devoted to ihe advancement of international peace, goodwill, and a better u n d e r s t a n d i n g
among all the peoples of the world,
Ships at sea, American embassies
and colonies abroad will also p a r ticipate In t h e World's Fair parties,
To simplify the m a n a g e m e n t of
the program the a r r a n g e m e n t s will
be handled by forty-eight Fair committees representing every state in
the Union.
Promptly a t midnight, local electric signs, all timed to t h e second,
will flash t h e Fair's "Dawn of a New
Day" message ol the trylons and
perispheres which symbolize the exposition. Al Ihe same time, orchestras anil bands of Ihe nation will
strike up the Fair's theme song,
written by the late George GerSiTwln, al all parlies, clubs, hotels, all
gala with party concepts ol orange
and blue which are ihe Fair colors.
College, university, and alumni organizations will participate in the
gala festivities,
Musicians, artists
and craftsmen will make the New
Year a happy one lor members of
trades and guilds all over Ihe country. Even local ministers and leclurers will sound the "Dawn of a
New Day," tidings of hope ami optimism, in religious ceremonies In
every American community on the
morning of J a n u a r y 1. As a titling
conclusion to this giant spectacle, the
Fair will broadcast its message of
peace and good will toward all men
over a world-encircling network.
Tills "salute" will sustain the theme
of fellowship and hope, of amity

nil t h i ' n f f l l i t l o n s of it h i i i i i d r i i i n w o r l d .
We'd like to write a cheerful editorial
this week. — All about the glad Christmas
season and how the world and we students
will just have a 'peachy' vacation. Somehow, we can't make ourselves do this. Possibly because we feel too strongiy about
some existing situations that seem likely to
explode the peace of the world.
Munich has come and the hope for results are gone. Once again we begin to
doubt Mr. Chamberlain's sanity when he
threw the Czech nation into the dictators'
fangs to demolish. Perhaps, Mr. Chamberlain is trying to right the wrong accomplished by the treaty of Versailles, Perhaps—but to our minds two wrongs never
made a right.
With the war hysteria and fear that
existed then, there is little, perhaps, that
Mr. Chamberlain could have done, but
there exists the feeling in everyone's mind
that he sold a nation down the river. And
with another crisis already arising in
Europe, we wonder what nation will be the
next victim.
And if Hitler moves farther and farther
west, as hi; proposes in ,\/,••/';/ Ktiinpf, there
is little doubt that the two opposites, Russia
and Germany, must meet. And when that
day comes the biggest war in history will
take place. And all Neville's meamlerings
will not stop it.
Then, to us idealists, what is the solution—collective security—that, is a doubtful solution—rail the dictators' bluff—the
situation is now too far avalanched lor
that. We American idealists can only fight
for the peace of our nation—we cannot
allow ourselves to be dragged into (he
muddle that is steadily developing. We
must work lor the freedom of this western
world — freedom from both Communism
and Fascism.
Il is not an easy job we have, but perhaps before another hundred years have
passed, the ideals that this season inspires
shall be wrought. And we who talk feebly,
perhaps our little mouthings will accomplish more than all the silent intellectuals.

It seems ungrateful, even i m p e r t i n e n t , t h a t we
should criticize Intersorority council after all the r e forms t h a t august a n d admirable body h a s instituted
this year. Yes, indeed, starting out on a pleasant note,
the feminine element on all sides is praising Allah a n d
t h e afore-mentioned council for moving up t h e a n n u a l
r u s h parties from February to last weekend.
T h e a d v a n t a g e s of this reform a r e n u m e r o u s and
a p p a r e n t . I n the first place, the sorority girl a n d the
f r e s h m a n are spared the toil of rush parties a n d
pledge parties, intermingled with final examinations.
I n t h e second place, t h e week between e x a m s a n d t h e
second semester will be a sort of p r e - s p r i n g vacation to
break up the monotonous a n d nerve-wracking stretch
between C h r i s t m a s a n d Easter vacations.
In the third place, girls, think of all t h e Christmas
cards you'll save—or is t h a t unduly catty?
However, our complaint is this, chronologically
s t a t e d : Rush parties were last weekend; at twelve
o'clock on Monday, t h e freshmen had signed on t h e
dotted line; at four-thirty or thereabouts, t h e various
sororities had received the final election returns.
Therefore, why t h e great silence? We concede that
a silent period from t h e last function of rushing weekend up to the four-thirty expose is a fine thing. Last
m i n u t e persuasion a n d frantic rushing m i g h t be a n
undesirable a n d disastrous result of a free a n d easy
policy, but we cannot understand the c o n t i n u a n c e of
t h e deaf and d u m b show on into t h e week.
We might quote O m a r K h a y y a m : " T h e Moving

your Piety a n d Wit shall lure it back to cancel half a
Line, nor all your T e a r s wosh out a Word of it." After
a freshman h a s t u r n e d in her preference list, t h e
fearful deed is done, n o r can it be easily undone, and
so, we complain, why must h i t h e r - t o close friends pass
silently in t h e halls, with only a knowing glance or a
meaningful "Hello"?

brought two more plays, both of
t h e m fine—
T h e first, Miss DeCotis' offering,
proved herself a deft h a n d a t creating moods. Her fantasy actually
stayed in t h e realm of fantasy for
its duration.
Miss Donnelly a n d Mr. Walters
had most to do with this, probably.
Theirs were finished performances.
Mr. Walters was a t his best, as he

T h e other c h a r a c t e r parts of
Miss Theurer and Miss Clark were
also keyed to the play. T h e latter
was certainly a perfect neighbor.
Mr. Cassidy, of course, had a role
all to himself in t h e second play.
It might have been written for him.
He played it lo t h e hilt. Mr. Fink
was good but he could nave made
more of some of his lines. Mfts
Stewart was a n endearing ' m a m a '

we liked her performance.
One thing we did notice in both
plays—you've got to watch technical
details. T h e lights in the first play
worked havoc on Miss Donnelly's
features and weren't at all suited to
the mood. T h e ends of t h e stage
were In total darkness throughout
the second play, in spite of occasional action.

spectators in a frenzy t h r o u g h o u t die
contest. Time really defeated them.
This was a g a m e marked by a fine
and b e a u t i f u l
handling and passwork. As for the
defense of the S t a t e frosh, it was
a trifle confused in shifting from a
zone defense lo a m a n for m a n . F u r thermore, mental lapses in defensive
play brought about their downfall.
Leading by four points with only
two minutes left lo play. S t a t e paved
its own way to defeat by foiling to
stall properly. Instead of moving the
ball continually a n d thus keeping it
away from R.P.I., t h e boys stood still
and lost if. R.P.I, took a d v a n t a g e

by a team t h a t couldn't hold its own
In a fast game of holly-golly.
Stale's passwork was terrible but
their shots were worse. Things got
so bad t h a t spectators began to
duck when R.P.I, lost t h e ball. There
was no teamwork whatsoever shown
by our quintet; they j u s t threw t h e
ball in t h e general direction of a
yellow jersey.
T h e boys did have some tough
luck with their shots.
Many of
t h e m rolled around the hoop and
just dribbled back to t h e playing
court but too many a t t e m p t s were
missed by a city block. Some of t h e
lads didn't know enough to stop
throwing when they weren't coming
S l a t e had a 12-8 lead a t the half,
only because the T r o j a n s were a
little worse a t everything. However,
at t h e start of the third quarter
R.P.I, began to work more smoothly
and shot into t h e lead. Their t e a m ,
work clicked sufficiently to pass a
demoralized squad.
Ludke, who
amassed eight points for t h e winners,
led t h e attack against t h e State lads.
Fazioli, captain of t h e R.P.I, outfit,
saw very little action in t h e game.
T h e starting lineup for State was
composed of Simmons, Hersh, F r a menl, L e h m a n a n d Ellerin.

Hersh played a beautiful defensive
game but offensively he was way off.
Ellerin played the finest game of any
of the Slate men. He fought plenty
h a r d a n d passed nicely in a n a t tempt to get the offense started. But
the offense never did get started.
T h e pay-off came mid-way in t h e
third quarter. "Elmer Layden" H a t field threw in his second squad "en
mess" to stem the T r o j a n tide. It
was t h e poorest bit of substituting
we have ever seen; fifteen year old
Joe Jones from Podunk Center could
have done better. Any of the five
or ten men t h a t played t h e second
half could have gone well with four
of Ihe regulars but all together they
didn'l have a chance. They were too
small lo get the ball a n d too nervous
to do anything about it when they
did get it. They did well by slipping
only a few points behind t h e R.P.I.'s
but that didn't win the ball game.
During the lust few minutes, some of
the Slate rooters were on the point
of asking Coach for a game, while
G r a n t e d , the starling five didn't play
basketball but there was always the
chance that they would snap out of
their lethargy. It's one thing to fight

horse of a different color to throw It

to the recovery room after getting your mail if you want to,
but you won't have to be t^ere,
or in the vicinity. According to
the latest, most authentic report,
the student mailboxes will not
be moved to the first floor or
Husted hall, as previously
planned and stated. Due to unfavorable student opinion, the
actors of Campus Commission
and Myskania, it was decided
that the mailboxes should remain close to familiar haunts.
When you come back from
your Christmas vacation, you'll
find the mailboxes moved, but
not far away. No indeed, they're
going to be placed in the corridors on either side of the middle staircases coming down
from the Rotunda of Draper
hall, opposite the girls' locker
rooms. This will relieve the congestion, and at the same time
please unhappy students.
Results of the try-outs for the
freshman debate squad held on
Wednesday, December 7, have been
announced. Those who succeeded
in making the team are: Thomas
Augustine, Dorothea Devins, Fred
Ferris, Ira Hirsch, Edward Holstein,
David Kreher, Selma Leis, Dorothea

Four of the freshman debaters
will represent the freshman class in
the rivalry debate in assembly on
Friday, January 6. They are: Augustine, Passow, Miss Ryerson, and
Devins. Mr. Louis Jones, instructor
of English, will coach them.

Christmas Tree in Rotunda
The Christmas tree in the Rotunda of Draper hall has been given
to the student body by the Interfraternity council. The decorations
and labor that went into the trimming of the Christmas tree were
furnished by the members of the
Student council. It is traditional that
State have a tree in the rotunda at
Christmas time.
