If “coming events cast their shadows” as the adage goes, the coming Presidential election will be a walk-over for Roosevelt and Fair banks, if the sentiments of State College voters can be as an indica tion. Under the direction of the President of the student Republi can club a canvass has been made of the voting students in this Col lege, and up to date only one Democrat has declared hiriiself. The only reason he could give for his preference for Democracy was ‘ ‘that the Republicans had been in long enough.” It is to be doubted if others of the same mind here have any more substantial reasons for voting the same way. The vot ing contingent is almost solid Re publican and will go to their homes in a body in November to whoop things up for “Teddy.” Some plans are being made by the Re publican club to make the campaign at the College a little more lively. ELECTIVE FRENCH. Prof. I. L. Foster has organized an elective course in French for Sophomores and upper-class men. The work will include commercial forms, business letters, etc., and will be of great practical value to all students taking it.
