THE REGISTRAR, State College, 'Pennsylvania
Severs Connection With College to
Accept Prominent Position at the
University of California
It is with regret that we announce
to our readers the fact that Profes
sor Van Norman will sever his
connections with this institution
during the early part of this year.
His interest and his influence has
been manifested so keenly in this
institution. and his work in dairy
activities has been so excellent
throughout the state, that his loss
will prove to be a serious one to the
Penn State School of Agriculture.
Professor Van Norman came to
us in 1905, and he immediately
took charge of the Dairy Depart
ment. At the same time other than
his direct application to his depart
ment duties, he has done much for
both the college and the country in
certain branches of work. He orig
inated the idea of, and organized
the first institution of Farmers'
Week in this institution, and this
happened to be the first of its kind
in the country, although the prac
tice has now been taken up by var
ious other colleges. Under his
guidance the college creamery,
which in 1905 handled the milk
from 40 farms, today turns over the
large amount of milk produced on
224 different farms.
As an author and investigator Mr.
Van Norman has not been idle.
He published "The First Lessons in
Dairying", and also gave much
literature to papers throughout the
country. One of I . is most notable
achievements is Bulletin No. 114,
in which he explains a simple
method for computing dairy
rations, and in this way made it
possible for farmers to apply the
worth of scientific investigation di
rectly in the feeding of their cattle.
Professor Van Norman is secre
tary of the Pennsylvania State
Dairy Organization, and he is also
secretary for the Agricultural Fed
eration of Pennsylvania. Probably
the most conspicuous office he
holds is the Presidency of the Na
tional Dairy Show Association,
which has its headquarters at Chi
Professor Van Norman will be
Vice Director of the Experiment
Station in connection with the Uni
versity of California. He will also
accept the responsible position of
Dean of the University Farm
School, at Davis, Cal.
In an interview Mr. Van Norman
expressed his sincere regret at leav
ing Penn State, with which he had
been associated for such a long
period of time. He said however
that the opportunities otfered to
him were so copious and so exten
sive, and the future prospects were
so promising, that he felt bound to
break his friendly connections with
this institution to go into this lucra
tive and far reaching work.
It is to be deplored that we have
lost a man so prominent in Agricul
tural Circles, and one who has done
so much for an institution, but at
the same time we can fully appreci
ate Mr. Van Norman's position, and
it would be fitting to say, that for
the student body we wish him the
best of success for his new life
Practically a quartet of all the
men registered at Harvard are do
ing some form of remunerative
work to help themselves through
college. The statistics announced
in the report of the Employment
Bureau show that during the last
college year 8107,000 was earned
by students in the university. In
the college, with its 2,300 students,
687 men applied for positions,
while the graduate school applica
tions numbered 113, the Law
school 92, and the Medical and
Scientific schools 74. During the
year a total of 2,455 positions were
filled. Still some people maintain
the university to be composed sole
ly of aristocrats.
Dartmouth College, through a
$lOO,OOO gift, will be enabled to
proceed immediately with the erec
tion of a unique college building
which the donor expects to "neu
tralize" athleticism on the one hand
and social cliques on the other.
The building will be given over to
the exclusive use of the undergrad
uate non-athletic organizations, and
will be the centre of student intel
lectual and literary interests.
When "Lefty" Flynn, the big
Yale football stir, married Irene
Claire, one of the most statuesque
brunettes of the show at the Winter
Garden, he automatically severed
himself from Yale. Although there
ale more than a dozen married men
in Sheffield. Director Chittenden
has stated that the rule which bars
him from the University will be
sti ictly aclhet cd to. "How fortun
ate for some of us that it does not
exist here."
A careful supervision of the man
ners and deportment of the Anna
polis students is being maintained
as will be understood by reading
the following rules which the mid
dies must obey.
1. No new dances are to be in
troduced at any of the academy
2. The left arm of each mid
shipman must be held straight at
all times.
3. A space of three inches
must be maintained between part
ners at all times.
Supplemental to these rules is
one which warns the midshipmen
not to take the arms of any of their
lady friends, but to allow them to
take theirs.
