WEDNESDAY, JAN. 8, 1913
The new year is here.
The New No longer do some of
Year. the student body look
forward with awe and
wonder at 1913 as we did three and
one half years ago. General Beav
er in his first address to the class of
'l3 said that he believed that the
year 1913 stood for some of the
greatest achievements that could be
done for Penn State. Surely our
football team has set an example
this fall by which we should all
strive, and strive harder than ever,
for advancing our Alma Mater.
There are many questions of vital
importance_ that we, as the student
body, can settle that will benefit
conditions among ourselves
and that will add to the
good name that the Blue and White
now signifies. However, there are
no questions of such importance as
those which are now being under
taken by the Alumni Association,
that of helping toward the solution
of the proper financial aid from the
State and the problem of fair pub
The financial question is one that
is almost beyond the scope of the
average student, but it is one that
our representative Pennsylvanian
student body can materially aid in
by bringing up constantly at home
and before prominent thinking men
the relative requirements of Penn
State and her relative possibilities.
The recent issue of the Penn
State Quarterly contains five
questions the unanswering of which
in a nutshell places the source of
our difficulties before us.
"The Pennsylvania State College
is a service rendering institution,
otherwise it could not have had its
wonderful growth. Do those that
it has served, is now serving and
can serve know that Penn State
really is--its purpose, its past rec
ord of achievement, its capabilities
and possibilities, not only an
educational institution, but is a fac
tor in the advancement of science
Do voters of the Commonwealth
of Pennsylvania, who have sons and
daughters to educate, know of their
State College and insist on its prop
er support when sending repes ent
atives to the State Legislature?
Do the employers of young men
of ideas know our college as a
training school for their service and
Do the industries and professions
know the possibilities of Penn State
as a laboratory for their problems?"
The Alumni Association has tak
en up actively the spreading of the
"gospel of Penn State" into every
nook and corner where good will
result. Every alumnus of Penn
State is urged to help in boosting
our college in the wide, wide world.
Here is our chance; we will all be
alumni some day, or at least we
hope so, and every attempt should
be made now to study the needs
and conditions in order to place
them where they will do the great
est amount of good for the institu
tion. The college has done a lot for
us, let us by our help now do some
thing that will not only benefit Penn
State but will reflect upon those
who follow us.
The greatest resolu-

The Giving Out of Grades
On October 17, 1912, the General
Faculty took an important action
for the relief of the Registrar's
In older` that the Registration
Clerk may have an opportunity to
record all grades promptly and ac
curately, and without needless inter
ruptions, it was voted that "the
final grades by letter be given out
to the three upper Classes by the
Deans, and to the Freshmen by
their Advisers." Special students
and students taking the Two Years'
Course in Agriculture can learn
their grades by calling at the office
of their Dean.
Students are asked to note that
hereafter the Registrar's Office is to
be relieved of all requests to give
out grades at the end of each
Semester, and that such requests
should be made of the student's
Dean or Adviser. This change has
been made necessary by the recent
rapid growth of the College.
As heretofore, a report of all
failures will be sent to students by
mail as soon as the grades in a
given subject have been received
by the Registrar; and as soon as
grades have been recorded, written
reports of the Semester's work will
be given to all students.
The old fertilizer
formulas arc giving
0/111. way to the new. At
every farmers' meeting
one subject should be
the fertilizer formula
that will furnish a balanced ration to the crop and keep up the fertility
of the soil. To do this the fertilizer should contain at least as much
as Phosphoric Acid. Our note book has condensed facts essential
in farmers' meetings and plenty of space to record the new things
that you hear. Let us send one to you before your Institute meets.
A supply of these is furnished by 'quest to every institute held in several states.
We will be glad to send a supply delivered free of charge to every Institute, Grange
or Farmers' Club Officer on request. It contains no advertising matter.
