War in Our Time
The inception of the second World W a r came
as a distinct shock to the many of us who firmly
believed that another major conflict would not occur again in our time. T h e destruction, the chaos,
the suffering of the last war, we thought, had taught
a severe and sorrowful lesson to its participants.
Evidently we were mistaken.
Our European neighbors seem to have forgotten the far-reaching consequences that war brings.
They seem to have forgotten that war ultimately
solves no problems, and one war only stirs up new
hatreds and breeds others which bring more havoc
and suffering to the people. War is the normal
state of mankind, peace the abnormal, some historians maintain. T h e European situation is no exception to this theory.
The war of the democracies versus the dictatorships began suddenly. T h e purpose of the latter
in flinging themselves into the embroilment is obvious—national aggrandizement. T h e objective of
the Allies, on the other hand, has been enunciated
by Neville Chamberlain, who a year ago last week
returned to England from a conference with Hitler
to proclaim "Peace in our time." In a speech before
the House of Commons on September 20, this man
said: "Our general purpose in this country is well
known. It is to redeem Europe from the perpetual
and recurring fear of German aggression and enable
the peoples of Europe to preserve their independence
and their liberty."
Everyone will agree that the purpose of the
Allies is a noble one, in view of the great cost of the
undertaking. They probably will win the war. But
whether they will ultimately attain their objective
of freeing Europe from aggression by Germany or
any other nation is questionable, The reason for
this last statement, we think, is obvious after a study
of the last war, Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin rose in
countries where the effects of war left the people
demoralized and disorganized, Helpless and wartorn, they were eager to follow the lead of these
individuals who were shrewd enough to gain complete control. Today in Germany, Italy and Russia
we see the final outcome of that demoralization and
When the present war is ended, similar circumstances will exist. If the Allies win, Naziism and
Communism will be wiped out, but other isms will
spring up to lake their place. The peoples, again
bewildered and war-weary, will fall prey to new
Hitlers and new Mussolini's, and then a vicious circle will prevail. Once more the diplomatic horizon
of Europe will cloud with the menaces of aggression
by new dictators; wars will eventually recur, and
another World War will have been fought in vain.

Wilfred Allard Spends Summer
In Europe During Recent Crisis
by Sally Young

of the summer European travels of
Wilfred Allard, who was in Italy
when the recent crisis arose and
"New York looked mighty good to
That was the reaction of Wilfred
Allard, new supervisor of French in
Milne high school, upon his arrival
in New York after two and one half
months of travel in England, France,
and Italy.
Allard started out, three months
ago, via the Normandie, for a trip
to Europe. He spent two weeks in
London, saw the tennis finals at
Wimbledon, then went to France;
the trip across the English channel
to Paris was made in seventy-five
minutes by air.
When he arrived in Paris on the
night before July 14, he found it
brilliantly lighted for the occasion.
The next day he saw a magnificient revue, which represented the
entire French empire. Troops from
Algeria, Indo-China, Morocco, the
French Foreign Legion, and a group
from England, and a Scottish reg*
Cyr were present. The King's Guards
from England, and a Scottich regiment also participated. Hundreds
of bombers and pursuit planes flew
overhead, displaying the air might
of Great Britain and France.
A performance of Faust at the
Opera, the Comedie Francaise with
its "Cyrano de Bergerac", visits to
the Louvre and other places of interest to the Parisian traveler, filled three weeks in Paris. From Paris,
Allard made a three week's tour to
the south of France, including Avignon—the home of the Popes, Nimes,
Carcassonne, Marseilles, the French
Riviera, Monte Carlo, Cannes, and
Nice, in his itinerary.

Student Council
Revises Rivalry
Rules for B a n n e r , Mascot,
a n d Athletic Contests
Undergo Changes
The rules governing inter-class
rivalry were recently revised and
clarified by Student council as was
predicted in the 1943 handbook.
The major changes were made in
section B—banner rivalry, section
C—challenging, and section F—
athletic events.
Under the new ruling in banner
rivalry, the contest shall close at
midnight preceding Moving-up day
and not before. Both banners must
be given to the president of Student
council between midnight and 8:00
o'clock on Moving-up day. The old
rules demanded that the banners

be given to the president at midpoet and writer, who will be the
night when the contest closed.
guest of D and A council.
New Rules for Sing
In the section on challenging, a
new sub-heading was added to part
three which states that, "in the
event of a sing, the contest shall
be judged on the singing of the
class song to the Alma Mater, which
song shall be original in words and
music." This is an entirely new ruling designed to facilitate the judging of the contest and to enable
the classes to concentrate on one
song for the contest.
The rules governing
events have been changed so that
section 1 — interclass basketball,
part (c), now reads, "three points
shall be awarded to the class whose
men's team is successful in games
played between the two rival classes." The specification about following the inter-class basketball
schedule and the procedure in the
event of a tie was deleted because
there is no schedule and there can
be no tie in basketball.
Mascot Hunt
A minor change under A—freshman welcome, has been enacted,
substituting the sophomore reception for the freshmen for section 1,
part (a). Thus the freshmen will
be instructed in the traditions and
and inter-ciass rivalry rules at the
sophomore reception instead of the
first Friday of school. Under D—
mascot hunt, section five, part (b)
has been revised so that the mascot must be presented to a member of Myskania instead of Student
council. A change in section three
under athletic events specifies that
the women's obstacle races will be
conducted on Campus day. One
point will be awarded to the victor
of each race allowing for a division
of points.

from the face of the subject. Senior
men are asked to wear coats and

women will wear light colored
sweaters with or without pearls or
white collars. The women who do
not have light sweaters may secure
them from the photographer's supply. The senior women and undergraduate men may wear either
sweaters or whatever Is convenient.
The prices for the pictures will
be the same as usual, one dollar

D and A to Offer
Oliver Gogarty,
Noted Irish Wit
World Famous Writer, Poet
t o A p p e a r in P a g e H a l l
Wednesday Night
Students and faculty of State
college and the general public of
Albany will have the opportunity
of hearing Doctor Oliver St. John
Gogarty of Dublin, Ireland Wednesday evening at 8:30 o'clock in Page
hall auditorium. He will be presented by the Dramatics and Arts
council as their first guest of the
school year.
Doctor Gogarty, tall, blue-eyed,
and distinguished in his bearing is
famous for his interesting and witty comentaries on Dublin life and
Ireland's famous literary figures.
Jane Wilson, '40, president of D
and A, is confident that "his quips,
puns, stories of Dublin life and
word portraits of great men in
Irish literary society will provide
an evening of entertainment well
worth hearing."
Native of Ireland
Born in the latter half of the
nineteenth century, Dr. Gogarty
grew into manhood at the time of
Ireland's great literary revival. His
intimate friends were most of Ireland's great statesmen and literary
figures, in fact, his town house and
country estate were favorite gathering places for such personages as
George Russell Moor, Lady Gregory,
Shaw, Yeats, Joyce and others.
Not only is Dr. Gogarty famous
for his wit but for his many occomplishments as a surgeon, sportsman, statesman and poet. As a
statesman he served as a member
of the Irish Senate from 1922 to 1936
when the body was abolished by
De Valera. As a writer he ranks as
one of the greatest lyric poets in
modern English literature and has
been compared to Heyrick, Waller
and Heine. When William Butler
Yeats edited his famous anthology,
"Oxford Book of Verse" several
years ago, he chose Dr Grogarty
as the contemporty poet.
Best Known Works
Perhaps Dr. Gogarty is best
known to Americans for his prose
works, "I Followed St. Patrick,"
"As I Was Going Down Sackville
Street," and "Tumbling in the Hay."
"Going Down Sackville Street"
is composed of his reminiscences
of Dublin's great and near-great
during the past fifty years—the
leading figures of the Irish literary
Rcnnaissance, all of whom were
