Drive Reaches State
Move Headquarters
SEB to Exhibit
Pictorial Advice
The Bundles for Britain campaign comes to State)
In assembly next week, a short
program will be devoted to explaining the work of the bundles
organization. State College students will be asked to do their
share in the philanthropic work
of this group.
Dr. Caroline A. Lester, who is
in charge of the campaign at
the college, made the suggestion
that in keeping with the spirit
of the drive, students wear some
red, white, or blue clothing to
school Friday.
Committee Stilts to Educate
Undergraduates in Method
O f Placement Procedure
In an effort to make the students
of State College Job-conscious, the
Student Employment Bureau is
sponsoring an exhibit in the showcase In the Library.
The exhibit is the first step in
the educational program of the
SEB student committee composed
of Clarence Olsen and Catherine
0*Bryan, seniors; Ralph Tibbets and
June Haushalter, juniors; and Lois
Hafley and Owen Bombard, sophomores,
The purpose of the exhibit is twofold. First, it will offer a glimpse of
the procedure of the SEB in recommending candidates.
Secondly, the committee wants
the undergraduates to realize that
Job hunting is not confined to the
senior year but must be considered
by the student even in his freshman
year, so he can train and plan for
his job.
The background of the project
consists of pen and ink sketches
outlining the personal and professional skill and equipment of the
successful applicant. These sketches
were drawn by Ethel Cohen and
John Alden, seniors, and David
Hayesllp, '42.
In the foreground a hypothetical
case taken from the SEB files is
outlined for the students, with brief
explanations of each form. Suggested books on job finding complete the
display.
D'iscussing the project, Miss Irene
Semanek, Assistant Director of the
Bureau, said: "The display is to be
an educative program for the undergraduates. We want every person to
be conscious of the demands of
teaching, and we want this consciousness to begin in their first
year."
The exhibit will continue through
next week.
Debate Team Faces
Six Western Schools
Freshmen W i l l Join Skidmore
In PKD Panel Discussion
The headquarters of the college
Red Cross knitting group has been
moved from the Myskania room to
the small room off the Annex, formerly used by the Pedagogue photographer. The room will be opened
during the noon hour and from 2:30
to 4:30 every afternoon for anyone
who may wish to work there.
The request has been made by the
committee in charge of the knitting
that the State women who are participating refrain from knitting in
classrooms.
The work will continue for the
rest of the year. The girls who have
begun articles now are to hand
them in as soon as they are completed, preferably before Christmas
vacation. Yarn will be issued at intervals during the year, and all
articles will be sent overseas as soon
as finished.
Registration for upper class
students for second semester
closes today, according to Dean's
office officials.
All changes must be approved
by major officers, except section
changes, on change cards.
Fees will be collected for next
semester on January 22, 23, and
24.
Registration, which began yesterday for upper-classmen, was
conducted the first two days of
the week for the freshmen. No
section changes are permitted in
any freshman courses.
Blanche Kirshenblum, '41, editor
of the Statesman, announced yesterday that there would be a meeting of the Statesman Board Wednesday at 7:30 P. M. in the Publications Office. All those who contributed to the last issue, and all the
freshmen who signed up are invited
to attend.

Carney of CH scored five points

of BAR added six points to his total
putting himself in third place with

Egelston Shatters Old Tradition
A t Recent Montreal Discussion
by Edwin J. Holstein
To the north of us there is a city
about seven times as large as Albany. This city in "another country"—a country at war, is Montreal
in Quebec, Canada. To this city on
November 30, journeyed a delegation
of the American Foreign Policy Association at the invitation of the
Canadian Institute of International
Affairs. As one of the delegates,
Mrs. Martha A. Egelston, instructor
in History at State, returned to tell
of her observations and interpretations.
Women are not regarded highly in
the public life of Quebec. In their
own words they have been "chattels."
The American female delegates were
told that they could speak in the
round-table discussions of the convention. However, when Mrs. Egelston signaled for recognition, she
saw that it would not be forthcoming; the result—she spoke anyway.
Silence settled over the assembly. A
woman had spoken on international
affairs for the first time in the history of the organization.
Mrs. Egelston confesses that she
went to Montreal full of hope; hope
that was speedily squelched by the
prevalent pessimism she found there.
Pointing out that the "press" has
held that there is no evidence of
war in Canada, she .slated that

"every thing is conditioned by the
war."
Uniforms are everywhere in Montreal; the most striking are those
"slate-blue with plenty of brass" outfits of the R. A. F, The soldiers unlike our own, are much less conscious of uniforms.
A spirit has seized the people of
Montreal; a deeply imbedded conviction tempers their lives, Mrs. Egelston feels. They feel that there will
always be an England, even If they
are defeated. Kill them all, but there
will always be an England. Parallel
to this feeling of patriotism, however, is the same group philosophy
that is found in the United States
today, namely defense of the western hemisphere at any price,
Both interesting and significant is
the fact that Mrs. Egelston saw a
concentration camp on an island in
the St. Lawrence River. On the back
of each Inmate there Is a bright
scarlet spot ten Indies in diameter.
Trousers are blue and red striped.
Her comment was "Escape from such
