Sophs Threaten Frosh on Rivalry;
Juniors Come to Rescue of 46
By a Sophomore
"And the condemned men ate a
hearty meal."
This epitaph will soon find a
new meaning within tlie hallowed
halls of State, so declared Flo Garfall at a meeting of the Class of
'45 a week ago yesterday.
For, my dear little frosh, you
are to be battling for your very
lives in a precious few weeks! And
you are to be feted once more
before the "Reds" begin to mop the
One week from today the Sophomore will hold their annual reception for the "greenhorns". At
this time the two rival classes will
have the opportunity to look over
the opposition and plan their
methods of attack. As in the past,
the '46'ers will also have Myskanla
inform them of the traditions of the
college and the inter-class rivalry
rules. How well will they learn
the true facts about the "unknown"!
The day before Campus Day,
which will be on October 17th
this year, will mark the opening
of "new business on hand—to be
disposed of quickly and completely."
The feature event of the men's
division will be the treating of the
frosh to a "little game of musclerelaxing", commonly known about
the school as pushball. The next
afternoon the Sophs will provide a
final resting place for those who
still remain, on the football battle

Hey there frosh!! It's your turn
to launch a blitzkrieg on those gay
but foolish sophomores. We did
it last year and we mopped the
halls of State, rolled the grass in
front of Page Hall, and collected a
few pairs of trousers. Only this
year, we think that you should go a
step further and dunk a few of them
in the icy waters of Washington
Park Lake.
From the looks of your class, it's
a cinch. You have the brains and
you have the brawn, while the
sophs are a different type. They're
too heavy for light work and too
light for heavy work.
Let us give you a few bints on
how to beat those cocky sophs.
When you get into the pushball
game, grab their ears, they're large
enough. Hit 'em hard; they'll fold
up like an old beach chair. Then,
while they're dazzled by this display of force, roll that large pill over
them and over the goal lino.
All you have to do in the football game Is to hit 'em hard and
low, and you can breeze over them
with the grace and ease that we
did. Since they warble like a chorus
of frogs on u sultry summer night,
you will sound like nightingales in
comparison at the song contest.
They are all very tongue-tied and
inexpressive when it comes to debate, so just stand up there and give
a fair argument and you will clinch
it, As for stunts, their skits remind
one of a bunch of ham actors doing
thoir strut. Just put on a peppy
stunt and you will have them bowing
their heads in shame.
And so, frosh, while we hold no
bitterness in our hearts for the
Sophs only pity; our patience is
about exhausted by their wise ways
and cracks. We want you to knock
their ears down and win for good
old '4(1. We, your sister class are
backing you all the way, so go to it.
It's all yours.

signed up for it, warrants immediate
playoffs. We'd like to see last year's
newly begun record of a finished

Ride at the Range
Riding is fun and grand exercise.
It is, perhaps, the most expensive
sport on WAA's list since it costs one
dollar an hour. But if you go ten
times, WAA gives you a five dollar
refund. This reduces the charge to
fifty cents an hour, a small sum for
the pleasure you receive. WAA

Rivalry Rules To Be Read
Myskania's part of the program is
to announce and explain the froshsoph rivalry rules. Last year there
was some confusion regarding these
rules, and Myskania hopes to avoid
any misunderstanding this year.
Members of the audience are to feel
free to ask questions. An additional
feature of the evening will be the
singing of the Alma Mater by bothclasses.
The highlight of the program will
be the presentation of the sophomore skit, an annual event. The
plot of the skit has been kept
secret, but the sophomores have
revealed that they have an all-star
cast, including Nora Giavelli, Sunna
Cooper, and Harold Goldstein. The
skit is under the direction of Ruth
Hines, assisted by Margaret Bostwick and Elsie Whipple.
Dancing, Refreshments to Follow
Following the skit the audience
will adjourn to the gymasium, where
there will be refreshments, games,
and dancing. Name tags will be
given out at the door. The floor
has been freshly waxed, and music
will issue from a vie rented for the
occasion. In former years the dancing has been held in the Commons,
but has been transferred to the
gymnasium this year because of
difficulty in blacking-out the Commons.
"We expect a 100% turn-out of
both classes," says Flo Garfall. "Besides, the refreshments are really
good—ice cream and cookies."

All-State Dance
Arrayed with the clashing colors
of the banners of all State College's
classes, the All State Dance for
the second consecutive year, will
take place in both Sayles and Pierce
Halls. Friday, October 23, is the
date; the time !) p. m. to 1 a. m.
Music from two bands, each attempting to outdo the other, will
provide the rhythm for the anticipated crowd of 120 couples. Replacing Senior Hop, the Senior,
Junior, Sophomore, und freshman
classes have combined to present the
unified spirit of the entire college.
In an effort to keep the price at a
level attainable to ull of State's men,
bids have been fixed at the low
price of $1.05, including tax. Following lust year's precedence and as an
udded economy, the dance will be
semi-formal, sparing the man from
the expence of securing tuxedos.
In accordance with-the War Activities Council's suggestion that
expenses be kept ut u minimum,
faculty members will receive invitations through personal handwritten notes from the dance committee chairman, Mildred Mattice,
'43. Representing the Junior Class
on the committee is Richmond
Young, while arrangements for the
bands will be made by Florence
Garfall, '45.

The clays which were characterized by freshmen-sophomore rivalry in its wildest, must unrestrained forms are gone—perhaps forever, bin
at least "for' the duration." Such frivolity has
no place in an institution for higher learning
while our country is at war.
But rivalry will go on—with some of the
events changed, but it will continue. T h e question now before its' is, what to substitute for the
mascot and banner hunts which were discontinued and which counted 10 points. It has been
suggested that rivalry points be awarded to the
class contributing most to the war effort—in
various ways, among which is the buying of war
bonds and stamps. Diverting enthusiasm for
rivalry into productive work, work that will aid
the war effort is all well and good, but the
minute you place emphasis on buying, even
though it be war stamps, you place rivalry on a
commercial basis, something it was never meant
to be and something it should never become.
Rivalry in the past has been won by the class
that was superior in both physical and mental
prowess, and by the class with the most enthusiasm, not by the class whose individual members had the most spending money.
Let's give State students, freshmen and sophomores in this case, credit lor some patriotism.
And if they do have some patriotism they arc
buying as main war stamps and bonds as the)
can afford, Is it lair then to expecl these students to sacrifice their lunch money, their recreation motif) in order to win rivalry?
Let's not thrust an added financial burden on
their shoulders and let's not commercialize a
long-established tradition.
State Lifts Its Face
Everyone talks about the social and scholastic
changes Slate has undergone since last December, but few mention the actual physical changes
made in the past year. Still fewer appreciate the
L'lfori and money invested in such college improvements.
The lower halls ol Huested and Draper, alter
two weeks of disorder, have taken on a modern,
rejuvenated appearance with their new terra/./.o
flooring, Already the .Annex area looks cleaner
with the more sanitary floor replacing the drab
wooden one. The science department has been
modernized; the heavy peristyle doors have been
repaired; additional shrubbery now adorns the
These improvements merit special attention
not only for their obvious value, hut because
they were completed in spile of the restrictions
necessitated by war shortages.
In a national
emergency .such as the one we are experiencing
right now, any improvements are surprising.
Thanks to tlie administration, State at least has
had its face partially lilted.

General Billy Mitchell, formerly of

of t h e airplane's superiority over the

Not too far from Albany there is a
small section of the c o u n t r y p o p u lated almost entirely by artists,
writers and people of such ilk. B e cause of the heavy percentage of
men and women who a r e "odd"
enough to think that some things
;ire more important than money and
social position, this same area is one
of the best examples of a working
democracy to be found.
In fact,
there is a S a r o y a n e s q u e quality
about it all—a small town banker
who pays mortgages out of his own
pocket, a grocer who refuses to collect bills, a farmer who is fanatically
interested in the ballet,
I happen to have a peculiar interest in South Mountain Road as the
colony is called, because Mary Mowbray Clarke, the founder, is my
aunt. Thirty-five years ago or more,
she settled in one of the p r o - R e v o l u tionary farms on the road with her
sculptor husband, and proceeded to
work out n life devoted to the arts,
but based on fundamental elements,
such as farming and handicrafts.
Gradually, more a n d more artists
and writers were attracted there u n til now the telephone directory reads
like a Who's Who Among America's
Art Circles.
The most widelyknown name is Maxwell Anderson's,
b u t there a r e many others such as
Waldo Pierce and Maurice Cantor,
the painters, and Ruth Reeves, the
textile designer, who a r e admittedly
t o p - r a n k in their special fields.
I h a v e been fortunate enough to
stay a t the "Brochen," my aunt's
home, several times, and through her
by Itlionn Kyan
to know and appreciate the significance of South Mountain Road.
For this small area probably holds
more talent and genius per square
mile than any other comparable spot
on the earth's surface. For more
definite proof, I invite anyone to
visit Maxwell Anderson's home, as I
did, and to gaze spell-bound at one
of the most beautifully unified and
exquisite houses existing outside of
Frank Lloyd Wright's imagination.
And every stone, timber, and piece
of wood has come from the road itself, the labor was given by the
farmers and young artists, and the
furniture, paintings, rugs, etc., have
been fashioned and designed by the
South Mountain Road art colony.
Even a good portion of the books
have been written on the road.
But, to me, the most .heartening
result of my stay there was the final
proof that a full, rich life'' depends
not on money or even intelligence,
hut upon living as one wants,
though in co-operation with others
for the general good. It goes without saying, that in most communities
this doesn't work out at all, but
somehow it has on South Mountain
Road. But I can feel a tremendous
pride because once average citizens
scoffed at my aunt for thinking thai
life was more than just earning
money, and that it must embrace a
high idealism combined with a
knowledge of hard realities- I'd like
to tell you some other time of the
hard realities she faced while South
Mountain Road became what it is—
a landmark to h e r own personality
and the vital truth of her beliefs.

games to go undefeated for t h e
season. T h e same c a n b e said of
KDR in previous campaigns.
T h e i942 race, however, promises
to be as close a fight for t h e c h a m pionship as t h e recent St. L o u i s Brooklyn pennant chase in the
National League.
According to last w e e k s play
Potter Club a n d Dorm " A " ( T r o jans) appear as strong contenders
tor t h e I n t r a m u r a l Cup.
Club h a s a flock of good experienced
players a n d a r e tops defensively.
They have a well balanced squad,
b u t they seem deficient in s o m e thing just as important—and that
is spirit.
(Remember the World
S e r i e s ? ) . P e r h a p s the 6-6 tie with
K D R last week h a s aroused the
Potter lads from their lethargy.
Trojans Heavy
T h e Trojans have weight to their
distinct advantage a n d so far they
h a v e p u t it to good use. They h a v e
good r u n n i n g a n d blocking, a l though they a r e weak on the p a s sing. It will be quite a battle when
the Trojans meet Potter C l u b and
the w i n n e r of this contest will
have a lot to say about the c h a m pionship.
KDR, with their n e w shift, is
the d a r k horse of the league. Their
chief w o r r y is material as t h e r e
a r e n o capable substitutes to r e place the starting six. Kappa Beta
and S L S will be battling it out
for the other first division spot.
K B looks very weak on the offense
being able to connect with only
short passes, while missing pitifully
on r u n n i n g a n d long passes. S L S
has a fairly good attack but is
charged with some loose playing.
Both teams are only average on the
Dorm " B " , the Finks, a n d the
Ramblers a r e the three weak sisters of the league. All three squads
lack experienced players. However,
they are pushovers for no team
in the league as they are fighting
all the time and may cause upsets.
As a surprise to many was the

Coach G. E. Hatfield has issued
first call for all frosh interested in

to begin early n e x t week. Coach
Hatfield is calling out the frosh
earlier t h a n the upperclassmen in
order to get some idea of the
quantity a n d quality of the b a s k e t ball material contained in the freshm a n class. T h e frosh a r e especially
important this year as they a r e
eligible for positions on the varsity.
On November 2, the C a m p u s Chest

charge of the committee which includes the President and V i c e - P r e s i dent of Student Association, the
Presidents of Student Christian A s sociation, Newman Club, and Hillel
Society, and Miss Sara T. Deianey,
Dean of Women. The drive will be
brought to a close on Armistice Day,

USO, Naval Relief and tuberculosis

given to the same organizations and
any other worthy cause which might
arise. Fifty dollars already has been
donated lo the NEWS, to be used for
sending copies of the paper lo u n dergraduates and g r a d u a t e s now in
the armed forces.
For the current campaign, each
and every student will be approached by the solicitors. T h e Campus
Chest drive takes place only once a
year, consequently students are not
asked for contributions several times
during tin- year for various "causes."
Each one is expected to oiler at
least fifty cents. Said Sol G r e e n berg, "Although we hope to get 100',
of fifty-cent contributions, the d e creased enrollment and more vital
cause should prompt as many as possible lo give a little more."
Any Junior or Sophomore who
desires to act as solicitor should contact Greenberg.

More Members Likely
From Present Seniors
Kita Mickey, '43, was elected P r e s ident of Pi G a m m a Mu, national S o cial Studies honorary fraternity, at
a recent meeting of the group. Lucy
Massimilian was elected Vice-President; Mae Whiting, Secretary. Betty
Bailey is the new treasurer; Harley
Dingman is program director. M e m bers of Pi G a m m a Mu are selected
each year, by the outgoing seniors,
from those m e m b e r s of the Social
Studies Department who have shown
great interest in their field, and who
are outstanding in scholarship as
well as in personality. Only seniors
may be m e m b e r s of the fraternity.
Rita Hickey, President, has a n nounced that, d u e to a change in the
national constitution allowing the
chapter to have a total of fifteen
members, it may be possible that
additional members will be chosen
from this year's Senior Class. Two
of the m e m b e r s of Pi Gamma Mu
chosen last Moving Up Day, Thomas
Feenoy, and George Kunz, have been
inducted into the armed services of
the United States.
Among its varied activities, this
Social Studies society plans to c o n tact sophomores who are interested
in majoring or minoring in Social
Studies. The Pi Gamma Mu m e m bers will act as advisors in helping
these sophomores select their p r o gram and related subjects. The Pi
