WEDNESDAY, MAR. 12, 1913 During the 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 our rules. 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 treatment ? 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. Four positions A Call on the editorial for Candidates staff of this paper 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 names to J. D. Hogarth, Delta Upsilon House. Hereafter, absolutely The no information or news Calendar will be printed in the "Collegian" unless the news handed in to the paper bears the signature of the writer. A re cent mistake was made in schedul ing the 'thespian performance be cause of the fact that the time handed in to the paper was un official and has turned out to be anonymous. For the sake of the faculty and student body we ask that a great deal of care be taken in this matter, that people may be saved the inconvenience that arises from a mistake or a misrepresenta tion. We ask your aid in making the calendar reliable. At the annual The election of officers New Officers of the Penn State Collegian held last Wednesday J. D.

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.
