WEDNESDAY, APRIL 2, 1913
It is opportune at this
A Vital time to discuss an affair
Question in these columns, which
occured just before the
Easter holidays. The matter con
cerns itself with the hazing of a
freshman, who since his arrival,
has not committed any act which
would justify the treatment he re
ceived at the hands of the sopho
mores. As a matter of fact, no
offense would warrant the punish
ment afflicted upon this man.
Because of failing to appear at
certain designated meetings, this
freshman was taken in charge by a
gang of sophomores and submitted
to i - hari:c - ut'inei beating, which
occasioned his being ill for two
days and his requiring the services
of a physician.
Such acts are absolutely indefen
sible and deserve to be severely
denounced by public sentiment and
especially by the members of the
sophomore class. It is entirely
contrary to all national and state
laws to inflict any corporal punish-
ment upon any citizen of this coun
try for any offense except murder,
and it would be difficult to compre
hend how a group of unjust and
foolhardy sophomores could take
upon themselves to do that which
is forbidden to state and federal
If that rough element of each
class, which is always ready to
brag about class and college spirit,
would but realize that by such be
havior they are giving striking evi
dence of disloyalty to their Alma
Mater, such damnable actions
would be obliterated. Rumors of
such proceedings spread themselves
around the state, and generally by
exaggeration, little minnows grow
to , be ponderous whales. For the
sake of the reputation of Penn
State, the actions of the student
bOdy should be consistent with
those of mature college men and
not •savor of a mob• of foolhardy
It' is generally conceded that
recalcitrant freshman should be
dealt with in some way or another.
Possibly this year, with the institu
tion of the hazing committee, the
offenders haVe been dealt with in a
way more just than in previous
years, but nevertheless, it is appar
ent that vigorous action must be
taken to abolish corporal punish
ment and haircuts. There is always
some effective and yet harmless
way to be found with which offend
ers against college customs may be
, For the sake of our Alma Mater,
it is to be hoped that the class of
1916 will take a firm stand in this
matter. Its aim should be, not to
give tit for tat, not to make new
men suffer for the trials which it
has experienced, but to be magnan
imous with the freshmen next year,
and in this way to evidence its
class loyalty, and above all to show
its devotion to its Alma Mater.
To the staff
The of the weekly
Collegian" Staff paper will be
added five new
men. Three freshmen editors will
be chosen, one sophomore editor
and one sophmore manager. Act
ive competition will start at once.
Those desiring to compete should
hand their names at once to either
J. D. Hogarth or to L. B. Keelan.

Most fellows recognize the great
benefit derived from such college
visitors as Jane Addams, Graham

in many oft other colleges miss.
It takes money, however, to secure
these people and carry on the work
of the Christian Association here at
the college. There is a deficit at
present of $470.00. If you can pay
your dues or make a contribution
