The Hazing latter part of
Question Renewed each college
year the first
year men of the institution are con
fronted with the problem of hazing
for the following year and of the
definite policy to be followed by
the class in dealing with the situa
tion. This year formal discussion
has already been started by 1916.
Sentiment seems to be universal
in declaring that our traditional col
lege customs and theories of pre
cedence should be maintained. All
college men, regardless of class,
will admit that a certain amount of
deference should be observed toward
the men of upper classes; and that
the placing of restrictions upon new
men, while no doubt an interference
with personal liberty, is not oppres
sive, but rather for their ultimate
welfare of all concerned.
Furthermore, it seems that, unless
there are some definite means to en
force the principles embodied in our
college customs these customs will
gradually pass out of existence.
Assuming these points, then, the
whole subject seems to rest upon the
question of the method of enforcing
The "committee system", adopt
ed by the class of 1915, or some
similar plan, if properly executed
seems to be an excellent way of han
dling the situation. Indiscriminate
hazing and general "rough-house-
ing" of men are getting to be
things of the past in up-to-date
American colleges, and there is no
reason why Penn State should not
fall in line. It is true that from our
particular location our college life
is more a matter of common con-
cern than in the case of a city uni
versity; but the absence of indis
criminate hazing will hardly destroy
class spirit and regard for college
customs—for our class athletics and
scraps still remain.
Shall we enforce and perpetuate
college custom by adopting some
method of punishment for offenses
committed; or shall we go back to
the old form of general freshman
persecution—a system which can
not, because of the size of the col
lege, reach all men of the lower
class; which, under such conditions,
is manifestly unfair toward those
whom it does reach; and 'which
furnishes merely satisfaction and
amusement to a few turbulent
spirits who perhaps may have
received, the year before, more than
the usual allotment of the same
In considering the merits of the
system adopted by 1915, it must be
admitted that critisim has been of
frequent occurrence; but is is also
well to consider that most of this
criticism has come from soph
omores and has been due, to a great
extent, to lack of co-operation of
the class with the hazing committee,
A suggestion has been offered by
prominent college men to the
effect that "the judges of men
charged with breaking college cus
tom should be, not the sophomore
class, but men of higher classes;
punishment of culprits, when decid
ed upon, should naturally fall into
the'hands of the second year men."
This idea is new to the college, but;
is worthy of consideration at least)
Penn State students form a self- 1
governing body, considered both asj
a whole and as being composed ofF
individual classes. The question ofl
hazing is doubtless a matter to bed
settled by some form of student
action. It is evident that there are
more possibilities in the final de-,
cision than those already tried out:
and the hazing question should'
receive careful consideration, not
only from next year's sophomores,
but from all the classes.

are to be filled.
One editor will be chosen from the
present sophomore class and three
from the freshman class.
The college paper affords an
opportunity to men in college who
desire to do something that will help
them personally, and at the same
time to be of service to their Alma
Mater. All positions on the board
are filled by competition, any four
year' course man who is in good
collegiate standing being eligible.
All men desiring to compete for
the positions should hand their

MANNIIVH A PITCHER
Was Sensation in Tri-State. Has
Proved a Successful Coach.
Few pitchers, if any, created a
greater sensation in Tri State ranks
last season that did our resent ,
coach Walter E. Manning.
Manning throughout the entire
season was the strongest pillar in
the Allentown pitching staff. He'
took part in fortyeight games last
summer, won a vast majority of
them and at the end of the season
stood third in the line of the Tri
State's most effective pitchers.
His work during the season did
not go unnoticed by the men higher
up. Clark Griffith, while the
Washington Nationals were mak
ing their game fight for first hon
ors, besieged the office of the
Allentown manager with offers for
Manning's sale. Dooin, of the
Phillies, also made strong bids at
this time and were it not for the
fact that the Allentown manager
realized too well Manning's worth
and held them off with exorbitant
prices he would have been found
garbed in a National or Philly uni
form long before the season closed.
For these reasons Manning ab
solutely refuses to go back to
Allentown under any conditions.
He is at present considering several
good offers for his services as
pitcher from some of the 'fastest
teams of New York state as well as
having offered to him a permanent
position as coach. Whatever may
be his decision, he has with him the',
best wishes and good will of the
Penn State student body.
The New Poetoffice
At the tine of Senator Penrose's
visit to State College last fall, the
matter of a new postoffice for State
College was presented to him. As
the result of this action, an item
was inserted in the Public Building
Bill for $72,000 for our postoffice.
The item was passed.
