PENN STATE VOLUME 10 NUMBER 1 NEW BUILDING PLANS Latest Appropriation Assures Ex tensive Building Operations Sites Have Been Selected. Seven new buildings and an addi tion to another will be built this Year from the appropriation fund. The sites have been selected by a New York landscape architect and will be a part of a large plan of de velopment. The Ghost Walk will be eliminated to make room for the new Women's Building which will face on an open quadrangle. The largest expenditure will be made in building a $75,000 addition to the Horticultural Building. This addition will be of brown brick and the completed building of the same architecture as the Agricultural Building. An $BO,OOO animal husbandry barn will be built across the road from the Experiment Station and back of Mr. Goodling's residence. To the east of this new barn a $20,- 000 dairy barn will be erected. A new chemistry building, which will cost $70,000, will be located near the present Chemistry Build ing. This addition will relieve the crowded condition in the old build ing and make room for the expan sion of the physics department. The site of the new building will be near the Chemistry Annex, The site for the new $50,000 Mining Building has not been de cided upon. It will, however, be on the lower campus nearer Allen street than the present building. Shops for the industrial engineers and laboratories for the electrical engineers will be located in a new $25,000 Engineering Unit. The new building will be located in front of the unit completed last year and will be of the same style of architecture. The new Liberal Arts and Woman's Buildings will begin the open quadrangle arrangement or grouping which most larger col leges possess. All of the buildings which will face on the quadrangle will be of white brick. The Liber al Arts Building will cost $70,000 and will be located between the Library and Professor Williard's house. The Women's Building will be situated across the road in the rear of fhe Botany building and will cost $50,000. Glee Club Activity The Penn State Glee Club is looking forward to another suc cessful season, as Manager Freeman has plans for a year which will even rival last year's unparallelled success. Trials for membership in the club will be held next week—those for tenors on Monday evening at 6:30 in the Auditorium, those for basses Tuesday evening at the same time and place. This year there will be places for just fifty men, and com petitition will be very keen. More over, requirements will be higher and trials more severe, and Director Robinson wishes to impress upon candidates that a prepared solo furnishes a better basis for judging ability, and hence increases the candidate's chance of making the club. Trials will be held before a committee composed of Professors Robinson, Calderwood and Bates. The freshman Bible class, which has met success fully for the past two years. will hold its first meeting immediately after freshman chaeld Sunday. IMPROVEMENTS ON CAMPUS Additions to Women's Building and Old Main Completed —Work on Horticultural Building. Mr. Hollobaugh and his construc tion gang have had a very busy summer. Many improvements have been made and since the ap propriation turned out to be a real ity new work has been started. Eatly in tne spring, ground was broken for the new addition to the Women's Building aid since then the work has progressed rapidly. Just a few finishing touches remain undone and the work will be com pleted in a couple of weeks. It is constructed of brick and al though it does not conform archi tecturally in every respect to the old building, yet at the same time it makes up for it in its modern appearance. It contains twenty-one single dormitories, and two baths on the upper two floors. The first floor contains a large dining room about thirty by seventy feet with a seat ing capacity of over one hundred, and a new kitchen. This is fitted up conveniently in every respect and contains an up-to-date equip ment of stoves and cooking appar atus. A modern dish-washer and dryer has been constructed---new pantries and refrigators have been built. The old kitchen has been remodeled and serves as a new cooking laboratory for the girls. At the same time the interior of the old building has been done over. Paper hangers have iepaper ed the walls and painters -- have revarnished the woodwork and given the interior several coats of paint. While the bricklayers, carpenters and painters were at work on the addition to the Women's Building, the masons were busy completing the 1913 memorial in front of Old Main. This porch adds considera bly to the building and creates a more presentable entrance than before. The broad steps, thirteen in number, symbolic of the class of 1913, now allow free and easy ac cess to the building. As a finish ing touch to the veranda several large electric lamps mounted on bronze pedestals will be placed on both sides of the steps, similar to those given by the class of 1916 in front of the auditorium. At present the bricklayers and carpenters are busy completing the Horticultural Building. The tem porary roof has been rcmoN ed and the frames for the second story have been set. The building is ex pected to be ready for use next spring and the design will conform with that of the Agricultural Build ing. McAllister Hall has been reno vated and thoroughly gone over with paint and calcimine. The old kitchen has been removed and new physics laboratories have been in stalled. A large class room has been built and the Domestic Art Department has been remodeled and improved. Numerous ocher changes and im provements have been made among which the following might be men tioned: the Mining. Agricultuial and Animal Husbsndry Buildings have been repainted. New ventilators and sky lights have been installed in the Engineering Building. A new heating system has been con structed in the Aimoi y and the old radiators have been raised several .

During the closing days of the last collegiate year, the entire stu dent body unanimously decided to abolish the much censured practice of indiscriminate hazing. Although few cases of such a character pie vaned during the year, it was yet deemed advisable to make a strin gent regulation and thus to abso lutely dispense with the practice. It was decided to establish a hazing tribunal through the Student Council. This tribunal is to look into all cases relative to the in fringement of college customs. The body, which is con:posed of three seniors, four juniors and five sophomores, will t: y and prosecute all infringements of the customs, and if a man is found guilty of a violation, some sane form of pun ishment will be meted out to him. The great advantage which the new system has over the old helter skelter method of making men recognize old traditions, cannot be denied. This new body will en deavor to be absolutely impartial and will endeavor to promote har mony among the two lower classes, and to preserve the reputation of our Alma Mater. in forging, Carlton College; Lien, Arnold J., instructor in economics and economic history, Columbia Univ., Lum, Herman A., student employment bureau, Penn State.

M. C. A. Confer ence Big Success- Many Penn State 11 1 1H1 Attended All of the Penn State students who availed themselves of the op portunity of going to the Student Conference at Eagles Mete in June have voted that it was the most en- joyable and profitable tell clays they ever spent. A mixture of good times, athletic contests and common sense talks on the every day affairs which confront the col lege man, it was a privilege which none would have misse,l. Over sixty delegates and members of the Junior Civil Summer School were registered at the Forest Inn. The spirit of friendly rivalry among the many colleges represented was such as only the environment ofles Mere could give. Princeton can sing, Pennsylvania can sing, but ' when it came to cheering and show ing the kind of college spirit which counts, Penn State was there. When there was anything to be started, everybody waited for Penn State to lead. A stranger coming in would believe it a Penn State camp rather than a union confer ence of more than forty colleges. In spite of all the visible signs of our loyalty to the college the dele gates took part enthusiastically in the regular exercises of the confer ence and come back feeling much insptrecl by the aninumthere, Two receptions were giyen to the foreign delegates and one to Dr. and Mrs. Sparks, both of which were great successes. The fot t ign guests through interpreters gave short talks on what they thought of America. Mr. Waller, of Ireland, was a great favorite with the "Penn State bunch". He had everyone laughing at his ready Irish wit. Among some of the other noted foreign guests were: Baron Nicolay, of Russia; Mr. Isaacs, of India; Mr. Wilder, of England, and many others. The treat of hearing men from fourteen different countries speak alone made everyone think Eagles Mere a success. One of our most critical friends writes "Noth ing has ever done me as much good as that week." In athletics Penn State did not live up to her previous 1 eputation. The "Theologs." defeated our ball team; in track we were third, Princeton and Penn being ahead. However, competition was friendly, and our defeat in no way detracts from a realization of the worth of the conference. Freshman Physical Examinations. Physical Director Lewis intends this year to make more than ever of the usual freshman physical ex aminations, and all first year men are urged to report to him at once at the armory for an appointment. In past years the examination has been more or less a formality of taking physical measurements for statistic* purposes, but this year the medical and hygenic side will be closely followed up, with the idea of discovering and checking physical defects and ailments. This system will be the means of deciding whether or not men are in condition to take part in athletics and in class scraps. Sophomores will be examined later in the year if possible.
