VARSITY CAPTAIN
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

and teachers fighting side by side,

The main plot of the third scene

Get the Point?
Seniors remember undoubtedly the storm center
of student assemblies our freshman year: the revision of the Point System. No Nazi Bund meeting
was more consistently heckled or more ardently debated, but the storm has subsided! Not only has
the committee been dormant this year; to all intents and purposes, it has been non-existent.
It was obvious carelessness when the present
chairman was never notified of the members of his
committee. H e became automatically a head "sine
corpore," and the work of the committee was
neglected. According to the regulations passed by
the Student assembly, the point system is to be
enforced by Student council, after violations are
reported by the committee. Since there was no
committee, no violations were reported, and no
enforcements were made. Q.E.D.
Therefore, we ask—why a point system? Not
that we do not believe in the system! We do. We
believe that it was sincerely intended as a democratic move. However, we do believe that it should
not be retained as a permanent farce.
If the only accomplishment of the committee is
to come through a few hurried meetings in March,
and the results are to be a few minor offices raised
or lowered one or two points, then it is not serving us
in good stead. However, we are optimistic enough to
believe that all is not lost. The need for the system is still vital, and certainly the work of the committee could regain its former prestige.
Bread or Wine
"Hread and Wine" was the title of Dartmouth's
prize-winning college editorial of the month and it
was so pertinent to State college that the need for
comment is obvious. The "bread" element, according to our Dartmouth friends, is that faction which
concentrates almost entirely on practical courses
that will directly aid them in pursuing some vocation; the "wine" element concentrates upon social
activities and 'arts' courses. Of course, a student's
goal is the golden mean between these two, and
where is the problem of achieving this goal more
crucial?
State college is, in itself, an attempt to harmonize these apparent extremes. We are a professional
school with a liberal arts college. This very contradiction makes planning our courses a. real and
difficult problem; should we choose professional
courses or so-called "cultural" courses?
We like to interpret this problem in a broader
light to apply to later life.
If we are to be happy and prosperous, our decisions today concerning our background are most
important. The compromise we make today will
largely determine the sort of person we will be
tomorrow.
"Hread is the 'staff of life'/' yet "man cannot
live by bread alone." Where is the fine-drawn line?

Various Organizations
Interesting Hobbies of Faculty
To Meet Next Week
International Relations Club
to Have Panel Discussion
All students who are Interested In
keeping up on foreign affairs of the
day should note that the Internation Relations club meeting which
will be conducted this Tuesday at
3:30 o'clock in the Lounge of Richardson hall.
At that time, there will be a panel
discussion on the subject of "Solidarity In the Western Hemisphere."
Speakers will be Robert Martin,
Kenneth Haser, and Haskell Rosenberg, juniors.
The topic of the panel forum
concerns the question of unity between North and South American
nations.
Spanish Club
Charles Rundle, president, has announced that there will be a meeting
of the Spanish dub Thursday at
7:30 o'clock in the Lounge. Mrs.
Mitchell cf Albany will tell about
her experiences in South America.
Following Mrs. Mitchell's address,
refreshments will be served. All
State students are invited to attend.
Pi Gamma Mu
Pi Gamma Mu, national honorary
society for social studies students,
will conduct a tea Wednesday from
3:30 to 5:30 o'clock in the Lounge.
Mrs. Martha Egleston, instructor in
history, is the faculty sponsor for
this society.
There will be entertainment with
Franklin Kehrig, '39, in charge of
the program. The student body is
invited to attend.
As you've walked up to the stair's
leading to the library, you have
probably noticed standing alongside
the railing a glass-Inclosed case.
Even more probably, you have
stepped over for a moment to look
into the case, for it is there that
have been housed the many library
exhibits that have for the past few
years caught and held the attention
of State college students.
The exhibit case has been party
of the library since 1934 when the
new library was equipped. It is
Miss Helen James, librarian, who
plans the exhibits, gathers together,
and, for the most part, arranges
the material. Arts, crafts, and hobbies, particularly, have been subjects
of display.
It would be impossible to describe
all the displays since 1934, but just
consider these as representative.
1934 Russian arts and crafts—the
first exhibit.
1935 Old New York State Normal
diplomas—back to 1847.
1936 Coronation material — collected by Dr. Candlyn.
1937 Relics of ancient civilizations
of South America — lent by Dr.
^Stewart, a member of our summer
school faculty.
1938 Dolls from foreign nations—
a collection of graduate students.
Specially commented upon for its
beauty and interest Is the latest exhibit of Jugoslavian fabric designs
contributed by Miss Ruth E. Hutchins, assistant professor of fine arts.
The costume designs were sketched
by Miss Hutchins while working in
the Ethnographical museum in Zagreb, Jugoslavia.
Various exhibits have also revealed
hobbies of several members of our
faculty. Dr. South, for example, has
a valuable collection of American
glass and China. Miss Moreland,
while traveling through Russia,
gathered together Russian peasant
dolls. Dr. Morris has contributed her
