STATE COLLEGE NEWS, OCTOBER 13, 1939
Wilfred Allard, While in Europe,
Witnesses Wartime Preparations
by Sally Young
(This is the second part of a story
of the summer European travels of
Wilfred Allard, who was in Italy
when the recent crisis arose and
broke.)
At Cannes, he saw> the famous
Battle of Flowers; in*Nice, he attended an outdoor performance of
"Prometheus Chained" in the Roman Arena and witnessed the Fete
des Provinces Francaises.
His first journey to Italy was
a pleasant one. Genoa, Pisa of the
famed Leaning Tower, Naples, Capri, Pompeii and Rome were highspots of his Italian visit. During
his three day's stay in Rome, he
viewed an outdoor performance of
"Aida", in the ruins of the Caracalla Baths, which was attended by
20,000 people. The Conte de Bavoia,
Italian liner, was leaving Naples
during his visit; three days later,
as he returned to France, he again
saw the ship, which had been called back to Italian waters by Mussolini.
When the crisis came, Allard was
in Florence, Italy, where very little
about the crisis was known. The
American consul told all Americans
to leave as quickly as possible, since
no one knew when Italy might join
the Germans in the hostilities.
From Florence he proceeded to
Nice, to Grenoble and back to
Paris, where he was located when
the war was declared.
The wartime Paris was very calm
and quiet. Public notices to the
civilian population gave information about procedure in case of
an air raid; all news was censored.
All skylights and headlights were
painted blue; all lights were a dim
blue; traffic signals were removed;
windows were reinforced with Scotch
tape to prevent breakage in a bombardment. Bags of sand were placed about, reinforcing all beautiful
bits of sculpture in l'Opera, le
Louvre and other homes of art.
Cellar windows were boarded to
keep gas from entering air shelters,
and all night life ceased abruptly for a period of time. The movies,
the Folies Bergere and the Bal
Tabarin were still closed in early
September. People could be found,
eating in cafes, with gas masks
slung over their shoulders.
(Concluded next week)
Assembly To Feature
First Rivalry Debate
(Continued from page 1, column 1)
The program this year includes
the regular panel discussions, formal debates and round table discussions in which three or four
colleges participate.
Those selected to fill the berths
on the varsity roster are Sadie Flax
and Geraldine Ewing, seniors; Cyril
Kilb, Catherine O'Bryan and Alma
Knowles, juniors; Edwin Holstein,
David Kreher, Lothar Schultze,
Glen Walrath, Selma Leis, Ira
Hlrsch, Harry Passow, Fred Ferris, Betty Cummings, Lauretta Servatius, Dorothea Devlns, Jeannette
Ryerson, Thomas Augustine and
Vincent Miller, sophomores.
Reporter Finds Minds In State Of Suspension
(Continued from page 1, column 2)
anyone who assumes an intelligent
and cooperative attitude, but an experienced senior penetrated the haze
of theories of the value of the system and explored its practical working. He believed that it would result in dirtier politics than now
exist. An example well illustrated
his point. Rho Dammit Rho and
Kappa Kegga Beer, two sororities,
who find it to their advantage to
work together, discover, on publication of results for revotes, that each
has a candidate who carries a n excellent chance of winning, if she
can receive backing from another
organization. Therefore, each will
switch their votes to the others'
candidates, thus securng for each
a winner. Under the present
method, he pointed out, this would
not be possible.
State college reacts to the amendments as any civic group does to its
public questions. Some favor the
whole, some favor part; others oppose the whole or part, but most
don't care.

Student Body To Hear
Dean Moreland Today
A talk by Miss Helen Hall
Moreland, dean of students, and
a further discussion of the proposed amendments to the constitution are the features of today's assembly.
Miss Moreland will speak to
the student body about the changes in the set-up of her offices,
one of which is now the headquarters for the PTEB and the
NYA.
The amendment before the
student association is in two
parts: one, a proposal to change
the method of revotes; and two,
the compulsory publication of all
numerical results of all elections.
These parts are open for discussion. Students are urged to
state their views before the assembly before the final voting
today.
Lloyd Kelly, president of the
Student association, will make
several announcements vital to
Campus day, which is tomorrow.
The Milne clubs for practical instruction in hobbies are now entering their third week of pupil
activity. Miss Margaret Hayes, assistant professor of guidance, who is
assisted by Leslie Wiley, graduate,
has released names of the sponsors
of the twenty-nine clubs, together
with a statement of their purpose
and of future ambitions.
Registrants in courses Education
115, Education 129, and Junior Education 10, who have some specialized abilities, direct the classes
which include a field from athletics and music to cooking and
chemistry.
"At the present time
the clubs are extra-curricular, but
since they offer a chance for the
pupil to find his natural talents
and interests, it would be very
proper and advantageous to include them in the regular school
course," Wiley stated.

Seniors to Offer

Numerous clubs of the college are
now planning their social activities
for the coming year. Meetings and
revision committees have scheduled
such innovations as a complete
study of Italian folklore by the
Italian club and a trip to New York
city by the Classical club. Hikes
are featured by the other clubs, as
are discussions and constitutional
revisions.
The Italian club will conduct a
meeting on Tuesday evening at 8:00
o'clock In the Lounge of Richardson
hall. John Caramia, '40, president,
announces that the program will
feature Dr. Harold W. Thompson,
professor of English, as guest
speaker on the subject of Italian
folklore. Dr. Thomas G. Bergin,
professor of romance languages,
will also attend the meeting.
The Classical club has a prospective year in view as they initiate
this year with the hopes of making
a trip to New York city in the near
future to see the classical exhibit
in the American Museum of Art.

1922 the first Campus Queen was

For some reason fieldball replaced football, and the GAA

GAA girls, but at any rate Campus day became so popular and the
attendance so overwhelming that

it was necessary to Issue tickets

In 1935 control of the activities

"Reduce the cost of living and I'll move into
a group house." For several years, expressions
such as these have been heard around the campus
and nothing has been done for the complainants.
We have a situation here which is rarely found in
other colleges. It is: each individual group house
purchasing its own needs from whatever source it
desires. Why not purchase the needs from a single
source, and save money by taking advantage of the
larger discount that would be offered to a cooperative association?
The tentative plan would be as follows: the
sororities and fraternities (and other group houses)
would agree to buy from one distributor, for example, a grocery distributor. Each week the groups
would send to a single source (the cooperative manager) its order for the entire week, The cooperative manager would then bring together the type
of goods that each of the groups wishes to purchase by giving the wholesale distributor a single
compact order. However, at the same time, will be
sent the various individual orders which will be filled by the distributors and sent to the various houses.
Discounts would be allowed on the bulk order.
The bulk bill would be sent to the cooperative manager who, in turn, would collect the proportionate
share of each group, and remit to the distributor.

T o t h e Editor of t h e N E W S :
Last week thoru a p p e a r e d in the NKWH a n article,
entitled " F r a t s a n d Figures."
We, of I n t o r f r a t e r nlty council, believe t h a t the NKWH could have used
the space to better a d v a n t a g e . Although wo realize
t h a t this article did not necessarily reflect t h e viewpoint
of
the
STATU COLLBUB NKWH, wo wish
to
take
exception to t h e opinions expressed. T h e following
are our objections;
1. T h e word " F r a t s " is considered, a m o n g fraternity men, a s a n abuse of good taste.
2. O n o - h u n d r e d a n d fifty fraternity men form a
small minority of t h e student body. Therefore,
your social r e f o r m s should a t t e m p t to seek t h o
g r e a t e s t good for t h e greatest number of people.
3. T h e fraternities of State college receive n o aid
from tho S t u d e n t Board of Flnanoe, a r e n o t
regulated by tho student association, a n d a r e
not u n d e r t h e jurisdiction of the dean of student's office,
Therefore tho activities of tho

business of t h e m e m b e r s and not of t h e s t u d e n t

Dr. J. Allen Hicks, professor of
guidance, comes to us from Iowa—
"and proud of it."
His formal schooling consisted
of four years at Grinnell, with graduate work at Columbia and the
University of Iowa, where he received his doctorate. Following his
success in the field of child psychology, Dr. Hicks was awarded a
research fellowship from the Rockefeller Foundation to the University
of Iowa,
He served for five years as superintendent of public schools in
Iowa and was promoted to the position of executive secretary of the
National Committee on Child Development. At the same time, he
acted as psychologist at the Washington Child Research center and
facutly member at George Washington university. (What a man!)

overfond of football because training rules kept him from seeing his
girl as often as he would have liked.
Present rumors indicate that Dr.
Hicks is a "shark" at ping-pong.
Gardening is one of his two chief
hobbies; collecting biographies, the
other. In his extensive book-collection he owns many valuable old
biographies.
Dr. Hicks' educational philosophy
may be summed up in his own
words:
"The schools should be concerned with the devolpment of whole
personalities.
Emotional, social
and moral aspects of development
are frequently neglected because of
over-emphasis upon the intellectual aspects of learning. Children
are still sacrificed upon the ancient
altar of grade and subject matter
standards. Education is far more
than knowledge."
Despite the presence of two children ill his own homo on whom to
practice his theories, Dr. Hicks
claims it's not all smooth going
even for a psychologist. On one
occasion, daughter Marjorie made
her father quite exasperated. Yet,
hardly had he opened his mouth
for some good old-fashioned indignation, when Marjorie waved a finger and reminded him gently, "Remember Dad you're a child psychologist."

cross-country runners will stack up
against the Delhi harriers tomorrow afternoon over the Washington
park course. The meet, which will
start at 2:00 o'clock will be the
sixth meeting between these two
teams.
The Teachers have not
fared so well throughout the series,
having won two meets and lost
four. Since Delhi has a squad of
unknown quality, the outcome of
tomorrow's race is doubtful. However, Corey, who finished first in
'37 and '38, will not be running this
year, inasmuch as he graduated last
June.
The State squad during the past
two weeks has gone through two
sets of time trials. These trials
Hansen will definitely be great assets to the squad since they are
running close behind Francello.
With these three men all timing

there won't be much room for opposition to sneak in and place between them. In simpler words, if
one of the three should place first,
the other two stand a good chance
of being among the first four finishers. Gene Agnello has made a
rapid recovery and ran the trial run
in good time. Gene strained the tendons in both heels, but they have
mended and he will run tomorrow.
Manley has also recovered from his
cold and was timed in 20:29 for
the trial run. It will be a wellbalanced team which will carry the
purple and gold in tomorrow's meet.
