will offer to the students of State
college tonight at the annual Junior
Prom.
Standing out, of course, from this
array of talent, is Reggie Childs, the
violin-playing maestro, whose band
at the present time is one of the
top-notchers in the sweet swing division of dance bands. Born in
America and raised in England, he
received his musical education in the
conservatories of London and Paris.
Starting out as a cello player, Childs
aspired to be a symphony soloist.
Later, he pursued a course of study
on the violin and after having mastered this instrument, decided to
devote his talent to the radio and
dance orchestra fields.

The first meeting of debate seminar for members of the freshman
debate squad was conducted by
Leonard Friedlander, '39, yesterday
afternoon in room 28. This meeting of the seminar is but one of a
series arranged by Mr. Louis C.
Jones, instructor in English and
freshman debate coach.
These freshman seminars are to be
conducted along lines similar to
those employed by varsity debaters.
Meetings will be conducted every
Thursday at 4:00 o'clock in room
28 with a member of the varsity
in charge. Here, the freshmen will
be given an opportunity to thrash
out the various debate topics and
aid in compiling a bibliography,
forming issues, and debate technique
will be given. For the most part,
the following debate question will
be emphasized: "Resolved, that the
United States should establish an
alliance with Great Britain."
The next two meetings of this
seminar will be presided over by
Betty Hayford and Richard Lonsdale, seniors. All members of the
freshman debate squad are expected to attend these meetings.

Housing (Un)conscious ?
Annually there descends upon us the
Housing Drive. Seniors get to know about
it, but, unfortunately, not until they are
seniors, To the three lower classes, it is
as remote and pointless as a weather prediction. That, to our untutored mind, is the
predominant fault with the present system.
Unless you have lived in the dormitory,
the endless benefits of the housing system
are foreign to you. Here is one vital
point: cramped as we are in present quarters, the proposed Student Union would be
a social center for all those people to whom
the housing system can now offer nothing.
Our second bone of contention is this:
for three years an average student goes
through State college without thinking or
car:'ng about the Housing fund. During all
the time he is interested most vitally in
school affairs, the most important affair
of the school is dead to him. In his last
year, a senior's interest of necessity changes
from the past to the future. Next year and
teaclrrig are his primary concerns, yet it
is at this bewildering time that he is assailed by the Drive captains!
How much better it would be to make
the underclasses conscious of this project
while their activities are within its very
limits. This weakness is being righted in
a commendable way. Today in assembly,
Dr. Sayles will take a big step in making
the whole college Housing-Drive-conscious,
and what is even more vital, when the
Student Union becomes a reality, it will
be a monumental advertisement.

I Lion should have been used; the motivation cartoon
lacked zip; the testimonials were not original in any
sense nor funny even as r e p r i n t s ; the parody of the
Gettysburg address gave hope for a new birth of humor
but the song below it slumped back into old Lion unfunniness.
T h e r e m a i n d e r of the magazine deserves little comm e n t — t h e c a r t o o n s were saved by very clever captioning which brought t h e m up to date a n d made them
humorous, but t h e n the old quote page slipped back
to the medocrity of senility. Something h a s to be

comedy from other college h u m o r a g s smelled.

When play was moving slowly
in t h e jitterbug struggle last weekend, wc learned a lot about how to
take basketball from t h e comments
roaring out from
t h e Hartwick
bench.
First, there was t lie ordinary
Iroquois Warrior cry which h a s its
derivation from the ancient battle
cries of the tribe from which t h e
Hartwick squad chose its nickname.
Said war-whoops usually resolved
themselves into "Don't let h i m get
away with t h a t " or sometimes, the
more subtle "Sit on t h a t guy."
Then, there was t h e essence of
cries—that issuing from the medicine m a n himself. It seems t h a t ,
whenever the coach thinks t h a t the
other team h a s some valuable players and these players have a few
fouls called against them, it is essential for the well-being of one's
own squad to call over to t h e scorer
"How about curtains for h i m ? " a t
each new foul committed.
Well,
Coach Johnson, we suppose thai
there's nothing like being a hypocrite.

Thursday afternoon from 4:00
to 4:30 o'clock, State college
will broadcast its first radio program from the newly equipped
soundproof studio ih Draper hall.
The presentation will come to the
radio audience direct from room 207,
and through arrangements with
WOKO will be heard over that station.
The program will include an
introductory speech by Dr. Abram
R. Brubacher, president, followed by
a dramatization in five scenes of the
early history of the college.
The script has been written and
produced by the college radio guild,
under the direction of William G.
Hardy and Louis C, Jones, instructors in English.
The first scene Is concerned with
the success of David Perkins Page,
first principal of the new State Normal school, in his attempt to firmly
establish his educational experiment
as a permanent institution. In the
second scene, Albert Husted, the
great soldier-scholar, figures prominently during the vicious battle
between the State Normal company
and Confederate opposition. The
dramatic war setting, with students
and teachers fighting side by side,

The main plot of the third scene
is furnished by Kate Stoneman, an

the Normal college, who preached
her demands for women's rights in
her classes. The fourth dramatized
