STATE COLLEGE NEWS, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1940 PAGE 4 Red Cross Knitters Upper Classmen Sign Bundles For Britain Today for '41 Term 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. OTTO R. MENDE "The College 103 Central Ave. Jeweler" Boulevard Cafeteria EMIL J.

The boys weren't taking chances, weren't shooting enough to satisfy us. The Clarkson win caught us unawares. In the pinch, the Statesmen held up well.

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 Kodaks Cine Kodaks Albany Camera Shop, Inc. 5J04 Washington Avenue ALBANY, N.

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 a place is impossible."
