plays for this week are under the
direction of Betty Rose Hilt and

radio play. It is of an experimental nature and new to the State
College stage. Different techniques
in lighting, sound, and staging have
been substituted for the usual
stage conventions. The action of
the play will expand beyond the
limits of the stage to include the
whole auditorium, thus giving the
play a three-dimensional character.

W A A Reports
Varied Program
In Winter Season
Since the column "Back Talk"
was last week devoted to comment
upon Women's Athletic Assoc, in
order to clarify the situation for
the benefit of all interested members of the student body, we should
like to make public the following
1. Our official winter season
opens this year on Dec. 2 and
closes April 3.
2. The use of the gym for basketball, as planned under the winter schedules of both Milne and
State is not possible until the
opening of the winter season.
3. As has been our policy, captains for winter sports are appointed at the council meeting preceding
Thanksgiving vacation, which gives
all captains ample time to organize
their respective sports.
4. The responsibility for organizing and supporting any team lies
with the group which it represents.
5. Participation in intra-mural
sports is entirely voluntary.
We can see no reason for criticism of the present organization
for Womens Athletics by comment
upon the situation in previous years.
Constructive criticism is always
welcome, and whenever possible, is
acted upon.

writer" stated, "It seems to me,
however, that replies were too general, and specific answers were

ceeded to discuss the financial
In the meeting when this subject was brought up, the freshmen
were told that it would be discussed
in a later meeting with Dean
Stokes. This was not to avoid the
question. The topic of discussion
was "Pros and Cons" of sororities.
Certainly, if finances were a "Con,"
it was not the place of the "Pro"
speaker to bring it up. And if it
were as drastic as "ex-sorority
claims ,then it certainly would have
been brought up by the independents. Since it was not brought up
as an argument against sororities,
it must not be a great issue.
This is a State College. Every
person attending it is causing some
financial pull on her family. It has
been this way since the college
began. The purpose of a State College is to give education, tuition
free. And yet — sororities have
been on campus for forty years. Exsorority didn't approve of sororities
so she resigned. That privilege is
given to all.
As for living in a sorority house
all I can say is — you'll never
realize how wonderful it is until
you've lived in one. It's chummy,
true, and you've got a whole house
to study in. You don't live in a
bedroom. Breakfast is at anytime
you want it. But if ex-sorority
wanted to use the "house" as an
argument, she should have said,
"The sorority houses only hold
thirteen at the most, and all members aren't fortunate enough to get
a chance to live there."

Increase During War
During the war, salaries showed
a slight increase and the median
salaries of teachers was raised
twelve per cent. Though Boards of
Education recognized the problems
with which teachers were faced the
30 per cent rise in the cost of living
made the raise unnoticeable.
Last spring a campaign was
waged by the National Education
Associations, individual teachers
and laymen to bring to the attention of the State Legislature the
necessity for increased salaries for
teachers. This campaign was backed by organizations such as the
State Congress of Parents and
Teachers and the School Boards

other groups Interested in better

will contain articles from each fraternity concerning the ideals, purposes, background and members.
