everyone's mind as more and more
students substitute army camps for
college ampuses.
This week a number of State College instructors express their opinions on a plan formulated by the
University of Iowa to give financial
aid to students who will return to
complete their studies after the war
is over.
The plan at Iowa provides for
gifts of not over $200 to each returning student who needs assistance. A
fund will be collected by voluntary
contributions of 10c a week from
the students still in school, and this
money will be invested in U. S.
Defense Bonds.
The fund is being collected on a
group basis. Presidents of fraternities and sororities, leaders of dormitories and such groups, are responsible for collecting their quotas.
Students who receive the $200 gifts
must have seen at least six months'
service in a U. S. armed force. Also
they must have attended the University of Iowa from October 15, 1940
Radio for victory I Everyone has
heard a lot about it, but the average student's conception of just
what it means is a little vague.
The "radio for victory" group
composed of students and Albany
citizens, about one hundred people
in all, writes and produces radio
scripts for the Albany City and
County Defense Office. Most of the
writing is done by the citizens, the
students being occupied for the mast
part in research and production.
How Script Is Made
What happens to a script ? Mrs.
Frederick B. White, publicity director for the Civilian Defense Office,
sends to the radio script committee
a list of subjects that the Defense
Office wants publicized. The committee decides what angles are to
be stressed and gives this information to the research group. These
people collect material through library work and interviews. At a
weekly meeting the entire script
group is divided into four sections,

during this time.
Dr. Hartley, definitely enthusiastic
about the plan, declared, "It would
be a good way for us to cooperate
and help those boys who serve the
armed forces and whom we're going
to need badly as trained leaders
when this war is over." He stated
that it would be a means of helping
both the country (by buying Defense
Bonds) and some of our own friends.
Mrs. Eggleston, also In favor of
the plan, believes that "it is a very
far sighted view of a college problem
which is going to become more and
more pressing," and that it should
also provide for girls who are entering the army. However she raised
the question, "Suppose the fund were
not large enough to take care of the
number of people who return ?"
Dr. Jones, when approached on the
subject took out his pen and began
to figure. He estimated that there
would be approximately 900 students
here next year and that this number could provide a fund of only
$3600. "I don't believe it would be
Council Schedules
Various Debates
Debate Council has released a partial schedule for the second semester, 1941-42. On March 23, State will
meet Hobart and William Smith at
home. On March 13 some of the
State debaters will engage Colgate
here while others will journey to
New York to meet Columbia,
Queens, Pordham, Rutgers, and New
York University.
The question "What part shall
American foreign policy play in
forming a more workable world order" is the same for all the scheduled debates.
These debates are held in the
farm of panel discussions, and there
are no decisions. The following four
phases of the question will be discussed: causes and difficulties of the
present world crisis; a revitalized
League of Nations; Pan-Americanism; and Union Now.
Plans are being made to go to
Syracuse to take part in a panel
discussion on a radio defense program. The date has not been set.

"It's a little early to march the
boys off to the tune of a pension,"
declared Dr. Rienow when asked to
give his reactions on this idea. "The
motives are admirable but it's
stretching the truth a little to suggest that such a plan would be a
major factor in improving morale."
As he sees it, something of this kind
will be needed after the war is over,
but he doesn't think we should bribe
the students to come back.
Admitting that there may have to
be some stimulus to get the boys
back and that the Iowa plan may
have merit in lightening some of the
government's many responsibilities,
Dr. Baker nevertheless questioned
whether such a plan would work.
"Effectiveness will depend much on
the psychological effect of the war
on the individual," he declared. Because of the uncertainty of the future, he agrees with Dr. Rienow that
the plan is a little premature.
Men Find Cobwebs, Dust;
Coveted Banner Still Hidden
Two groups of men, crawling
stealthily through subterranean
passages, brushing cobwebs off
their faces, wiggling on their
stomachs through otherwise impenetrable holes, lifting dusty
panels in a vain search . . . That
was the sum total of Monday
night's banner rivalry.
Sophomores turned out in a
definite minority to brawl with
the freshmen diligently searching for a banner they never
found. Lack of enthusiasm was
evident on both sides, despite
class meetings which were expected to enliven the men of
both classes.
The men didn't even seem
envious of the women's success.
War Emergency Opens
New Teaching Positions
Look at your prospects, State College I This year's prospects for securing teaching positions look bright.
Last year's definite increase in calls
is being reemphaslzed this year, r e ports Miss Irene Semanek of the
Student Employment Bureau.
Primary reason for more job opportunities is of course laid to the
existing emergency. Records indicate that fields in which men have
specialized will hold more chances
for women teachers, especially science, mathematics and commerce.
A definite shortage of science teachers is anticipated by schools because
of the number of men being drawn
out for selective service. Several of
the selectees have secured instructorships in service branches.
Marriages Withdraw Women
Increase in the number of marriages during war time tends to draw
some women out of the profession.
However SEB has had definite indications that a number of schools,
which have had the policy of not
hiring married women, will keep
them on if their husbands are in
Salary liaise Anticipated
A few school principals feel that
they may have to raise the salary
scale to take care of the increased
cost of living. Not as many $1000
and $1100 positions as in the past are
anticipated, although some rural
communities cannot afford to increase the salaries of their teachers.
Miss Semanek said that it is a
little too early to predict absolutely,
but it looks as If the teaching picture
were changing. The war is having a
definite influence on the profession,
and it is feared that It will become
feminized again. The SEB is urging
all service men to keep in touch with
the bureau.

Scholarship Bill
Will Not Affect
State Students
Lack of Funds Blocks
Passage of Amendment
by Gravelle and Stengel
"State College students will not be
affected by any amendment to the
education law relating to State
scholarships," declared Assemblyman W. Milmoe, Chairman of the
Committee for Public Instruction, in
an exclusive interview with the
STATU COM,BOB NEWS this week. Be-
cause of insufficient funds to provide for the necessary appropriation, Milmoe's bill proposing the
doubling of State scholarships is no
longer feasible. Had the bill been
passed, students already in possession of scholarships would receive
$100 for each regular term and the
same amount for summer sessions.
"However," said
Milmoe, "it is generally accepted
that there will be a reapportionment
of scholarships in the ease of those
students who complete three terms
in one year instead of the usual two
terms. These students will receive
$50 per term."
AH yet the legislature has not
taken action on the State College
budget. The appropriation for the
fiscal year of 1942 was less than
$200 below that for 1941, but various
college expenses showed a large
enough decrease from those of 1941
to account for an actual increase in
the budget as a whole.

Sighs and Applause
-The Critic-
Tell It To The Marines
Recently, all newspapers in the country, large and small,
received from the United States Government, Office of
Censorship, a pamphlet entitled "Code of Wartime Practices
for the American Press." This pamphlet was printed at the
request of many editors who wished "an outline of newspaper and magazine practices which the Government feels
are desirable for the effective prosecution of the war." It
is extremely significant that this outline was voluntarily
requested by the newspapers for their own use, because
they wished to know how to best serve the interests of the
country in time of war. This is the way in which the
American form of government will meet censorship.
The following are pertinent excerpts relating to subjects
which should be avoided in publications:
Troops—their location, identity, or exact composition,
equipment or strength, their destination, routes and schedules, the assembly for embarkation, prospective embarkations, or actual embarkations. Any such information
regarding the troops of friendly nations on American soil.
Weather—all weather forecasts other than those officially
issued by the Weather Bureau.
Photographs and Maps—detailed maps disclosing location
of munitions dumps or other restricted Army and Navy
areas. (This does not apply to general war maps showing
the ebb and flow of battle lines, aerial photos presumably of
non-military significance.)
The spreading of rumors in such a way that they will be
accepted as fact should especially be avoided. Perhaps most
of us will never have any of the above information to disseminate, but we can help by education against the dissemination of any information, especially what we are not sure
is true. It is all right to tell it to the Marines, but it is not
all right to tell about the Marines.

Let's Make it 'Victory—not 'Defense'
Closing of Library Troubles Students; DebatersSchedule Rienow ExplainsCom Club, P G M
W i l l Suffer Scholastically, Socially
Collegiate Series War Democracy Will Roller Skate
by Jeanetto Shay
Sad are the hearts of many State
College lads and lasses as they
realize that they can no longer
abandon their lonely rooms at night
and go to study in the library in an
atmosphere of "bright lights" and
activity; that they will no longer
enjoy the benefit of fresh Albany
breezes which always woke them as
they traveled from home to school;
that they will no longer be able to
choose interesting "study" companions and will have to fall back on
their previously neglected roommates. Seriously though, the closing
of the library at night presents a
grave problem to many students as
indicated by comments overheard
during the last two or three days.
Practice teachers and students
who take subjects requiring a great
deal of research work are most hard
hit. "The only possibility for me is
to get my work done in the day
time," said Arlene Sadler, "because
sometimes I use fifteen or twenty
books at a time. I don't mind the
change except that it will probably
be a strain working all day."
Practice Teachers Hit
"It affects me a lot," declared
Shirley Ott, "because I'm social
studies. I'll have to study in the
library till 5 P. M. except for the
days I have 8:10's and need to catch
up on lost sleep in the afternoons."
According to Joe Levin it's going to
make those people who have to use
the library try to get their work done
in a shorter time. "Who wants to
carry five or six reference books
home!" he declared. It's his opinion
that it is more necessary to provide
black-out curtains for the library
than for the auditorium.
One frequenter of the library admitted, "It meant quite a bit to me
because I can't study in the dorm.
Now I have to learn to study all
over again." When asked if she
didn't mind the movements of people
around her in the library, she said,
"No, in a place like that I can isolate myself from everything else."
Social Advantages Cited
The Cooper House girls advance
as their reason for visiting the library at night the fact that it's so
near by. "We'll also miss a lot of
the social advantages of coming to
the library, going to the Boul, and
stuff like that," declared Mickey
One ambitious young man suggested that the library be opened for
a couple of hours on Sunday afternoons. George Seifert, however,
says that this won't be necessary
since "in five or six weeks, it won't
get dark till about 8:30 anyway, and
the library can stay open until
Pear that the cost of living in the
dorm will be raised Is felt by the farsighted Shirley Eastman. "People
used to go to the library and study
two hours, then come home and
have a date," she said. "Now they'll
just have a date and that will increase the lighting bill in the Ingle."
No matter whether opposed to,
indifferent to, or in favor of the new
measure, most of the State students
realize that it is necessary and they
are willing to rearrange their schedules to make them conform. "It will
be just a matter of time, and we'll be
able to adjust to the situation," declared Esther Tein.
Canterbury W i l l Hear
Rev. McNulty of China
An opportunity to hear reports of
situations and conditions in China
as they affect missionary work will
be made possible on March 3 at 6
P.M. when Canterbury Club has as
its guest the Reverend Henry A.
McNulty of Soochow. All students
who are interested are invited to attend the supper meeting, which will
be held at St. Andrew's Rectory.
Reverend McNulty, a missionary
in China for 28 years, is now home
on furlough. Graduated from Princeton in 1895, he entered the General
Theological Seminary and was ordained for the ministry.
Though Neglected, Hartley
Plans Myskania Slaughter
Dr. Hartley has been vilely
treated! He was very hurt because his name was not mentioned among the other faculty
members in last' week's NEWS
story on the Faculty-Myskania
basketball game.
He claims that the faculty is
bound to win, for they are employing a scientific approach.
They have made charts to map
intricate plays and secured the
aid of Dr. Morris and Miss
Hayes, whose department will be
Statistics—what form of statistics he didn't say.
Dr. Hartley's last game was
a faculty-varsity game in which
he declared the varsity stayed
out of school for a week.
Hartley himself will employ
the psychological approach as a
carryover from his ED. 10
classes. When asked what the
psychological approach was, he
declared, "Brass Knuckles!"
Can They Bomb
America?— See
Albany Exhibit
Can America Be Bombed ? In
answer to this question that is uppermost in the minds of the American people, the Albany Institute of
History and Art is sponsoring an
exhibit until March 15, which points
out vital facts in regard to airplane
power and the vulnerability of land.
It took 20,000 hours of research
and actual work to construct the
huge exhibit. Models of bombers,
airplane carriers, bombs, and air
bases are chief features of the display, with everything constructed to
scale. Globe segments are shown
representing "this shrinking world,"
plus charts and maps showing the
gradual decrease in the time necessary to cover specific distances.
Pacts concerning fuel and supply
requirements of bombers are presented with remarkable clarity. Two
large charts depict the tactical mobility of airplanes and their strategic immobility. Airplanes need air
bases, advance bases, and advance
depots to refuel and take on supplies.
An actual model of an air base is
displayed, showing clever camouflage tactics employed to disguise its
real purpose.
The model bombers shown are the
Douglas B-19, which can make a
non-stop flight of one-third of the
world, and which cannot take off
from airplane carrier ships, and various other types of army planes.
A set of pictures shows how masonry structures are destroyed by
the detonation from falling bombs
by the effect of air pressure, whereas
modern steel and concrete buildings
are less easily damaged.
One of the main attractions of
the exhibit is the large lighted map
showing the chief areas of the
United States that figure in defense.
Albany is shown as a transportation
center between the Great Lakes,
New England and New York.
Finally, the exhibit answers Its
question Can America Be Bombed?.
YES—if control of the sea lanes is
taken from us by the enemy. NO—
if our navy and the navies of powers
friendly to us control the North
Atlantic. But even more important
is its service to the American public
through the exposition of Important
facts about the implements of war
in relation to the area of the earth.
Debate Council and the Freshman
Debate Squad have scheduled a series of debates in which the State
students will compete with students
from the nearby colleges. Their
topics will consider some phase of
current events.
"Peace—Plans and Prospects For"
forms the basis for two panel discussions here at State College, to be
sponsored by Debate Council. Harry Wurtz and Joe Higgins, sophomores, will meet harangers from
William Smith College in the first
debate; Marion Sovik, '44, and Shirley Wurz, '43, will debate in the
second. Also scheduled for March
is a debate with speakers from
the University of Dayton, Ohio,
on the topic: "Resolved: That the
federal government should regulate
labor unions." State speakers for
this affair will be Rolf Toepfer, '43,
and Betty Cummings, '42.
The freshmen debate squad composed of Gordon Baskin, Sunna
Cooper, Louis Rabineau, and Sam
Scott will journey to Colgate this
weekend to participate in a series of
debates on the following subject—
"Resolved: That every male citizen
upon reaching the age of twenty-one
shall have received one year of military training." The team coached
by Glen Walrath, '42, will leave Friday afternoon by bus. The group
receiving the highest number of
points will receive a loving cup as an
award. The State frosh will engage
in eight debates—it is not known
which side will be taken, the affirmative or the negative. In case of a
tie a "play-off" debate will be held.
PTEB Fills 2 9 6 Leads
In Three-Month Period
The Part Time Employment Bureau has just released its report for
the period of September, 1941, to
January, 1942. During this time, 377
leads were received and of these,
296 were filled, a percentage of
76 of the 81 unfilled leads were
impossible to fill with State College
students; that is, they were jobs requiring over 30 hours per week,
room and board jobs, pin-boy jobs,
PTEB would like to remind anyone who wants a lead to make an
appointment with Harold Feigenbaum, '43, or any other member of
the board. Appointments may be
made in the office of the Dean of
Women, at the PTEB desk.
Second semester cards should be
filled out as soon as possible by students who have not already done so.
Debate Council is also making
plans for attendance at a state debate conference to be held at Skidmore College in April.
In Radio Speech
In a fifteen-minute speech to radio listeners of the Farm and Home
hour on Tuesday at 12:45 P.M., Dr.
Robert Rienow, Assistant Professor
of Social Studies, chose the topic entitled "Democracy Can Fight." The
text of the speech disproved the notion among many United States citizens that a democracy becomes a
dictatorship in war-time. Dr. Rienow
employed an imaginary "Mr. Croaker," a typical citizen, who argued
that the United States is fast
becoming a dictatorship; that the
Bill of Rights and the Fifth Amendment no longer protect the fundamental rights of the citizen. "Mr.
Croaker" illustrated several instances such as restraint of press
and speech, the espionage law, the
regulation of factories, railroads
prices, and rationing in which the
central government had supreme
authority. Dr. Rienow admitted that
such a citizen, who complained about
the loss of "good old days," has a
good argument. He questions, however, whether the centralizing authority means dictatorship.
Warning the citizen not to "kick
the terms dictatorship and democracy around," he explained that a
legislature in the form of a "robot
cheering section," appointed by a
central authority, is a dictatorship;
a legislature elected by and responsible to the people is a democracy.
Dr. Rienow argued that to his
knowledge 1942 congressional elections have not been cancelled and
that Congress still listens to public
opinion is evidenced by the repeal of
the pension bill. He also cited a
typical example when on November
26, a plan was proposed for the
establishment of an artillery range
on Henry's Lake which swans frequented. Since other places could
be used for the range, pressure was
brought to bear on the President
himself by a small group thereby
causing the plans to be changed.

SEB Lists Result
Of Job Survey
Throughout U.S.
The following report is a comparison of the Student Employment
Bureau of New York State College
for Teachers with the report submitted by the Eighth Annual Teacher
Placement Survey of the National
Institutional Teacher
Association. The Association's survey involved 170 Institutions engaged
in teacher education in 40 states. The
report gives State College students
their position in regard to the national supply and demand.
Math-Science Deficiency
One of the most emphatic oversupplies was found in the Social
Studies and English departments.
The local bureau reports a similar
excess of students majoring in the
Social Studies, but not in English.
In addition, an undersupply of
teachers in science, mathematics,
commerce, and many specialty fields
was noted. Consistent with this, the
SEB has an undersupply In the same
fields, particularly Commerce. Although no undersupply was mentioned in the survey, there is not a
large enrollment of students in the
library department here.
The only teaching combination
with which the SEB strictly agreed
was science - mathematics. Other
popular combinations include English-library, English-Social Studies
and French-Latin. Commerce calls
are seldom received in combination.
Although the survey does not give
any definite data on average salaries,
but rather approximate percentages
of increases, the following data on
average salaries has been compiled
by the SEB.
Wide Salary Range
The lowest salary for inexperienced elementary teachers was $912,
while the highest was $1,350. The
lowest lor secondary inexperienced
teachers was $1,000 and the highest
In the experienced elementary
guild, the lowest salary was $1,000
and the highest $1,600. The lowest,
salary for experienced secondary
teachers was $1,200 and the highest
was $1,900. The average beginning
salary was $1,191.17 for beginning
teachers and for experienced men
and women il was $1,476.34.

Precautions for Health
Will Cause Removal
O f Vending Machines
Tentative plans to be effective
after the Easter vacation are being
made in regard to the reduction in
the price of milk from 7c a half pint
to 5c through the elimination of
the vending machines, according to
Dr. John M. Sayles, President of the
College. Dr. Sayles stated that such
a change would be beneficial to the
general health of the students, since
all consumer and health department
reports reveal statistics pointing to
the detrimental effect of concentrated beverages on the health of
the consumer.
Added Cost Raises Price
Raising of the milk price by 2c
early in the first semester was necessitated by the increase in cost of
various foods in the Annex. According to former reports it was estimated that the rise in the milk
price had cut down the sale of milk.
Students affected by the new price
turned to the vending machines to
buy soft beverages.
The students who consider milk
an integral part of their luncheon
menu were anxious to see the price
lowered to its former 5c. They felt
that compensation for the rise in the
cost of food should come from other
commodities than milk.
In order to reduce the price of
milk, the elimination of the vending
machines that sell substitutions is
necessitated. By taking this action,
the sale of milk will undoubtedly
increase. This action was taken not
only to safeguard the health of the
Milne students, but also the students
of State College, since the present
emergency taxes everyone's resources more than usual. Since milk
is regarded as an important element
in the diet of growing young people,
demands have been made that the
price of milk be reduced so that its
purchase may be increased.
Students Neglectful
Still another factor contributing
to the move to eliminate the vending
machines is that many students
have been negligent in disposing of
empty bottles. The bottles have been
carelessly thrown in any available
place without any regard for sanitary conditions.
The method of the distribution of
milk has not yet been definitely decided upon, but Dr. Sayles assures
the students that whether the milk
is sold in the Annex or from a
machine, it will be cold.
A D to Close Season
O f One A c t Plays
The Advanced Dramatics class,
now preparing for its spring production, will present its last Tuesday
night plays on March 10 at 8:30 P.M.
The first play, a tragedy directed
by Betty Marston, '43, will be treated
in an e.xpressionistic manner. By
the use of skeleton furniture and
wooden planks as walls, the set will
represent a living room in a mining
town. It is the story of a miner
(Morris Gerber, '43) who is cruel to
his wife (Jean Tracy, '431, beats his
eight-year old daughter
Olough, '45) to death, kills a doctor
(George Seifert, '42) with nitroglycerin, and blows up a mine.
The second production is a character play directed by June Melville,
'43. The story lies in the conflicting
opinions of mother and daughter on
marriage and of an aunt who tries
to set things straight. The characters are portrayed by Marian Sovik, Eunice Baird, sophomores, and
Betty Taylor, Dorothy H u y c k ,
