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, Modern John Paul Jones with a member of the research and Is Milk, Hamburgers Hero production committees in each section.

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.

"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 service. 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. G E O R G E D.

You '11 find At the ANNEX State College News 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 Assemblyman 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.

It depicts the present day city including its traffic problems, and living conditions in the apartment houses and In the slums. The film also shows the city as it would look under improved conditions. Major change in the program to render Husted and Page Halls usable at night is the decision to blackout the gymnasium. Shades will be put up so games and practices may be held there after dark. Following the basketball season, the blackout provisions will enable the gym to be used for night dances, such as are held on Moving-Up Day night and school formals, The auditorium has already been equipped with blackout shades and is prepared for use during play rehearsal and presentations, Dr. Louis C. Jones, Instructor in English, who is at the head of the blackout program, said that the library in Hawley Hall would be impossible to blackout. All defense classes held at night will be in Husted Hall. Shades for the rooms in Husted have rrrlved and will be put up as quickly as possible, The new policy of eliminating lights outside of the college buildings was inaugurated Tuesday night.

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.

This is perhaps a vehement condemnation of you; but one must, neverthloss, face the facts. Philosophy, no one will deny, is an important phase of our culture, It has played, is playing, and will play a considerable role in the development of political, social, and economic thought. Who can estimate the influence of Aristotle, Rousseau, Hegel, Nietzsche, or Freud on western civilization? Yet, how many of us can instanteously put our Angers on the exact theories of the philosophers ? ft is true that some of us are vaguely familiar with certain ideas gained, perhaps, from a study of Latin, French literature, or Education 10.

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 Adams. 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 then." 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.

During this time, 377 leads were received and of these, 296 were filled, a percentage of 78.2%. 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, etc. 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.

Y. ate College News Z-443 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 Placement 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 $1800. 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. State To G o Irish A t Harp's Riot TRY OUR RUSINESSMAN'S LUNCH EMIL J.

Myskania Men Formulate For Victory Drive Against Now it's Myskania's turn—to predict the results of the great Myskania-faculty game that's coming up. That patrician body, being the honor society of State, cannot conceive of its honor being dimmed on the hard floor of Page Hall gym. But they're doing a little practicing, just in case—And since the affair is bound to be a "survival of the fittest," Myskania is on the market for any process by which they may become fit. Ralph Tibbetts plans to work under the no-stop-think theory. He's been walking across the park twice a day—he said, mysteriously. As for the faculty, he gives 'em ten minutes before they'll all be out on their feet. Bill Dickson will "hit before he hits me" and fully expects to see the entire faculty degenerate into a team of corpses after the first five minutes. Own Rules Faculty Team Ira Hirsh was discovered at one end of a straw with a bottle of milk at the other end. He arises at 5:30 A. M., takes a two-mile hike and eats a hearty breakfast. Throwing a body block will be Hirsh's main contribution to the Myskania five. Smoking not being ethical for an athlete, Bernie Perlman has limited himself to one pipe a day—but you should see the pipe I Perlman is the fast man on the Myskania team. His technique is running in circles around the flloor until both teams get dizzy. Then Perlman is free to shoot baskets for the duration of the game. Other members of Myskania refused to reveal any techniques that they intend to use. They plan to spring a test on the faculty—to determine their marks (manship). And they're positive that the faculty will not rate more than a C ! UNITED STATES OCrTMfE STAMPS VOL. XXVI, NO. 80 Sayles Plans For Reduction In Price of Annex Milk Eight State Men Enlist In Class V - 7 Mathematics Required For Student Applicants The United States Naval Reserve has accepted tight men from State College for the Class V-7 Midshipman training. This places State fourth among colleges contributing men to the selective program through the Albany recruiting station. Williams College is first with 23 enlistees, followed by Syracuse University with 17, Union College with 11, and State with 8. The men included Morris Gerber, Harry Kensky, Solomon Greenberg, juniors; Jackson Frederick LeVarn, Vernon Seeley, seniors; Frederick John Day, Dunton F. Tynan, Charles Quinn, graduates. Students who are interested in enlisting for this training must be college graduates, seniors, or juniors between the ages of 19 and 28. Undergraduates must get certificates from the registrar stating that they have credit in two one-semester courses of college mathematics or will have them upon graduation. They should also have credit for plane trigonometry taken in either college or high school. A new program was inaugurated on March 2, whereby 80,000 college undergraduates between 17 and 19 years of age will be enlisted annually in the United States for midshipman training and flight training schools. They will enter first the new Class V-l. After taking comprehensive Navy examinations during the second semester of the sophomore year, 20,000 will be transferred to Class V-5 for flight training at the close of the sophomore year, while 15,000 will go into the V-7 class.

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.
