Plans lor the All-State Special,
the first of the presentations under
the Big Ten Program to aid in the
war effort, have been disclosed by
Student Council who is sponsoring
the event. The adjoining dorms,
Pierce and Sayles Halls, have been
procured for the evening's entertainment on October 30.
Dancing and games will be the
main features of the affair. At
Sayles Hall, a swing band composed
of Slate students, is expected to
make its debut, while across the
lawn at Pierce, tables for bridge and
other games will be set up. A section for instruction to beginners at
bridge will be provided. In addition there will be table prizes, a
door prize, and raffles.
All-State Special has been arranged in an attempt to keep as
much of the spirit of tho All-State
semi-formal, inaugurated two years
ago. The expense of a hired orchestra has been eliminated, and
an informal non-date affair has
been made necessary. This affair is
taking the place of the All-State
Dance, which has been held at the
two dormitories In October for the
past two years.

but other comments were well-founded criticisms. If the students
had directed I heir complaints to the proper authorities, undoubtedly
action would have been taken before now. Even during the past week
there was a general meeting of dormitory residents, yet no one voiced
any of the criticisms heard so often before. In all fairness to the
any of the criticisms heard so often"before. In all fairness to the directors of the Halls, someone should have brought the issue to the fore
by stating exactly how the students felt about their living conditions.
Apparently it is expected that the NEWS will take Ihe initiative in
expressing the views of these students. Wartime economic conditions
limit meal-planning in any institution, yet other group houses on the
campus have been able to provide better meals than those found at
Ihe Alumni Residence Halls. And still board rales remain the same
if not slightly lower. If there is an explanation of this discrepancy,
surely the students are entitled to know of il. None of (hem are so
selfish as to refuse to understand explainable situations.
If no plausable explanation is offered, it is up to the students
to lake definite action upon Ihe mailer. If they feel Ihat they are
being treated unfairly, il is their right to demand that something
be done about Ihe situation. Otherwise, by letting the matter slide
the way of so many other "issues," the students will be relinquishing
their right to express opinion. Criticism is permissible only so long
as it is constructive.
Perhaps conditions are such Ihat no definite
action can be taken, yet even an explanation of this would satisfy
the residents.
The IJormtories are owned and run by the Alumni Association
for students attending Stale College. This means that close cooperalion is in order. Regardless of complaints, it is only fair to recall
that but for the Alumni Association, there might be no such group
houses. But since the students are paying for all they receive, they
are participants in the housing venture, and as such they are entitled
lo be dealt with immediately.

Commuting Problem
All students in t h e College a r e
organized
through
their
group
houses, with t h e exception of commutors. Commutors a r e confronted
with two obstacles. They don't get
around much, because the majority
of t h e m live some distance away.
Commutors w h o a r e Independents
are hadicapped even more so because
they miss t h e sense of security a n d
belonging t h a t comes from a tightlywoven group.
Last year, a Commutors Club was
formed, but it fizzled. No one seemed to hear of it. Some did not even
know it existed, including commutors.
As a result of this, these people
are forced to a t t e n d College merely
for the courses. They have just as
much right as t h e rest to the benefits
of College. Enough variety in personality is among them, b u t they
are n o t utilizing it. They are merely
remaining a mass of passiveness.
T h e answer to this problem is to
put t h e cards on t h e table, although
they may seem to be stacked against
t h e m . T h e commutors should get
together, a n d a t t e m p t a solution, for
their own good as well as t h e welfare
of t h e rest of t h e College.
Let somebody show some leadership to coagulate all these commutors. If Internal leadership is not
evident, some faculty member or
m e m b e r of Myskania would gladly
lend a hand.
As t h e situation stands, this h a n d i capped group of S t a t e Is Just getting
further into the r u t . Are they satisfied with their status or status quo?
If not, it's high time they were
organized.
T h e r e are some outstanding personalities In the ranks
of t h e commutors, if they will but
stop to look for them.
Have special programs planned.
E n t e r into politics. When It comes to
an election, let them p u t up a candid a t e . Let t h e m hnve a concession a t
t h e S t a t e Pair. They are not considered an integral part of the extraclass phase of S t a t e . Let their aim
be to make themselves a solid block
In the College!
Our W a r
It need never be said t h a t students
at S t a t e College a r e incapable of expressing their opinions.
Griping,
bull sessions a n d semi-erudite discussions have always occupied a
large part of our time. However,
when It comes to taking definite
action upon all t h a t we declaim, we
suddenly became apathetic.
T h u s it h a s been with t h e war
effort a t College. We talk about
the war; we feel sorry lor ourselves; we proffer sweeping promises; we reminisce sentimentally;
most of us rarely advance beyond
the stage of profound volubility. If
we feel truly responsible in regard
to t h e war, we should avail ourselves
of every opportunity to participate
in war activities at Sidle.
Registration for war activities is
scheduled for next week.
Urging
100 per cent participation should
be totally unnecessary If all t h a t
we h a v e said h a s been sincere.
W a r Activities Council provides o p portunities for each of us no m a t t e r
how limited our ubilltles.
There
is n o schedule into which some
aspect of war work c a n n o t be fit.
We m a n a g e to find time for many,
many things outside of classes—
extra-curricular organizations, d a n c ing, bridge, "rushing." These need
not be eliminated—they a r e import a n t parts of college life. We must
consider the i m p o r t a n c e of doing
our s h a r e in t h e w a r effort a n d
budget our time in accordance with
its importance.
Attending college in w a r time
d e m a n d s justification. We a r e p a r a sites if we a r e going to college
merely for a good time. We must
prove our worth as potential teachers—yes. We must participate in
college activities—yes. And one of
State's main activities this year
involves our doing our s h a r e of
war work.
Our course h a s been mapped out.
Let us give our wholehearted s u p port to the "Big T e n , " a n d register
judiciously next week.
The Time Is Now
The State
College
Symphony
Orchestra is being revived.
After
an auspicious beginning in 1938
the organization h a s h a d to be r e organized
a n d rejuvenated
five
years after its inception. Loss of
personnel h a s m a d e t h e task of the
conductor doubly h a r d for the past
few years.
Absenteeism from t h e orchestra
may all too easily be blamed upon
the loss of t h e m e n from t h e College. Things a r e different, we a d mit, but lack of interest h a s p r o b a bly accounted for more absentees
from
orchestra
rehearsals
than
Uncle S a m .
When
Bernard
Porlman
and
George Seifert, then freshmen instituted the S t a t e College S y m phony Orchestra in t h e Pall or 1938
they achieved something c o m p a r able with the founding of t h e New
or Music Council. In its formation
were t h e seeds of something which
might grow to bo as big a p a r t a n d
as representative of t h e College
as the other two organizations.
Forty
students
were
interested
enough to help form the first o r chestra.
S t a t e College, a teacher training
institution, h a s been fortunate In
having outstanding music a n d d r a matic d e p a r t m e n t s .
Interest in
these two, outside the necessary
curriculum, h a s always been lively,
a tribute to the versatility of the
students here. T h e AD plays a n d
the Operetta each year a d d a zest
and variety to college life.
T h e formation of t h e Orchestra
marked a further a d v a n c e m e n t in
ihe field and place of music in the
College. Under t h e leadership of
Porlman for four years It furnished
the student body with t h e music
they liked.
It promised fo continue when Perlman handed his
baton to .Snow upon g r a d u a t i n g .
Earl Snow never h a d u chance to
continue Perlman's work. He, like
many others was called to oilier
fields.
Yes. circumstances change plans
and the best laid plans of mice
and men oft gang agley, B u t this
Is not the tlmo to lament over
things that might have been. A
low have determined t h a t t h e O r chestra will not die. They a r e d e termined to do t h e best with t h e
material at h a n d . They feel, a s
should we all, t h a t t h e lime Is NOW.
Of b u t one t h i n g are we s u r e :
t h e light will come, for thus we have
been promised.
Of m a n y things
shall we be negligent, for t h e p a t h
of fulfillment is dim, a n d t h e neon
rays a r e losing their iridescence. Of
one t h i n g shall we t h e n wonder: who
or w h a t Is t h e pilot of our d r e a m ?
For we must be led; sufficient u n t o
ourselves we have never become, for
always t h e r e were others.
Now we a r e alone. T h e sure footing • • ' •• mir feet h a s become quick santi, a n .
: halo crown upon our
heads has ,
l i d itself back into
the mist f m
,ich it sprung. T h e
groping hai i avails nought, for
wheresoever it might touch there is
nothingness.
T h e documents set for us by our
s t a r s a r e intangible as their origins,
a n d t h e key to t h e stars is forever
lost. Visions were our goals. Half
sisters to mirages, they spent t h e m selves within t h e boundaries of our
day-dreams.
T h e r e is a m o u n t a i n a h e a d ; our
myopic vision accredits its presence.
T h u s far it h a s manifested itself only
by its crescent peaks, but as time
trails past, its nebular nature shall
vanish a n d it shall become crystalized. T h e n , we believe, shall t h e
answer be inevitably ours.
Moral: Seniors, let not your faith
in your exalted s t a t e keep you from
the prosaic achievement of your a l lotted aims. Exams shall be upon
you, a n d t h e time for c r a m m i n g .
Beware, lest a lachry-most interlude
succeed!
Communication
To t h e Editor:
Gee, it's just like Old Home Week
around t h e place! No kidding, with
all t h e uniforms drifting around
this week, I'm beginning to think
t h a t once again S t a t e h a s a ratio.
It's wonderful.
Sure, but w h a t I also want, to know
—don't these uniformed presences
m a k e people realize t h a t it's our
boys who a r e in this mess t h a t those
r a t s over there cooked up? Don't
they realize t h a t it's our boys we're
helping when we talk about W a r
Activities a n d t h e Big Ten? And if
they do, well, don't they also realize
t h a t our chance is a t h a n d to really
do a lot?
W h a t I a m endeavoring to say is
just this—let's all get behind this
idea t h a t Myskania and S t u d e n t
Council dreamed up a n d really show
our boys t h a t we miss 'em a n d w a n t
'em back just like t h e good old days.
Corny s e n t i m e n t ? O K . But. by gosh,
I want to see S t a t e t h e way it used
to be a n d a n y t h i n g we do is going to
count a lot. So t h e r e !

Wheeler, a s you all know, lias been t r y i n g to p r e v e n t t h e d r a f t i n g

Two Prizes Offered
For Best Photographs
M a r y D o m a n n , '44, Editor of t h e
Pedagogue,
a n n o u n c e s a scoop of
t h e year. T h e 1944 Pedagogue
is
sponsoring two contests.
F i r s t of all, from all t h e pictures
s u b m i t t e d for entry in t h e Ped,
one will be chosen a s t h e best r e p resentative of college life.
This
picture will be of o n e m e m b e r of
one of t h e four classes h e r e a t
S t a t e , a n d t h e prize will be $2.50.
T h e second contest will be for
t h e purpose of choosing t h e picture
most r e p r e s e n t a t i v e of life a t one
of t h e group houses, or a t t h e dorm.
A prize of $2.50 will be given to
t h e winner of this contest also.
Miss D o m a n n , in speaking of t h e
pictures to bo submitted, says, "All
pictures become t h e p r o p e r t y of the
Pedagogue,
a n d m a y be used by
t h e m a s such, w i t h o u t t h e recognition of t h e persons w h o submitted
them."
un-
T h e contests a r e open to all students as of now, a n d will close on
Monday, December 13, 1943.
P e r t a i n i n g to the individual pictures for t h e Ped, Miss D o m a n n
says t h a t no pictures will be taken
next week, b u t all those who signed
up to have their pictures t a k e n

the week after next.
If a n y o n e wishes to use last year's

According to Dr. Ellen C. Stokes,
Dean of Women, the Orientation
Course for freshmen will include
lectures a n d discussions by guest
speakers, faculty, a n d students.
This year, because of requests by
some of t h e freshmen, study t e c h niques are being given early in t h e

help students regulate their time
and give a master plan for study
habits.
For those students not taking
Hygiene this term, some of t h e
main health problems will bo discussed in brief.
Within the next few weeks c a n didates for class officers will be
nominated a n d voted upon under
the guidance of Myskania.
In the early p a r t of November,
questions relating to sororities, p a r ties, a n d bids will be discussed so

with the facts a n d procedure followed a t S t a l e before the time for
joining.
Included in Orientation will be
discussions a n d advice witli regard

good grooming.
Talks on college traditions will be
given to inform new students of

they, too, may become a p a r t of t h e
traditions.
In order to help the freshmen
decide on Hie organizations in
which to participate, lectures a n d

Ground sticks,
Ground sticks,
Ground."
And to this charming refrain,
Mary Now, '45, and Eileen Shoup,
'46, spent a week this past summer.
Where? At "The Hockey Camp,"
in the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania. When? The week of
August 27—and from all reports,
that was some week!!
Every year, WAA sends a couple
of hockey enthusiasts to the camp,
to learn the latest techniques, new
rules of play, and to get lots of
practice—both playing and refereeing, in order to instruct State's
fair stick-wielders. Last year Kit
Herdman, '44, WAA's present head,
and Marion Duffy, '45, went to learn
all about hockey. This year, Now
and Shoupie were the lucky (?) gals.
However, Mary says that they just
learned all they didn't know about
the sport. Miss Herdman believes
the expense is justified, for the girls
do learn a great deal of valuable
hockey lore which is passed along
to the other girls.
