The One and expansive policies
Year Rule encouraged in this col
lege for the last de
cade, have been especially signific-
ant, not only for their intensity,
but also for the far reaching effects
they have had throughout the state.
Hand in hand with the maturing
of the institution, our athletics
have made rapid strides
forward--so rapid, in fact, that to
day, in an athletic capacity, we are
not in the same - class - with some of
our former rivals. In order to
make effects of growth and pro
gress lasting, however, they must
have the proper reception, and per
fect environment. What would
appear to be more necessary, as an
athletic stimulus, than the One
Year Rule, which the sister institu
tions in our class have already
fostered for an appreciable time ?
The One Year Rule generally
provides:—that all students enter
ing an institution shall have at-
tained a one year's residence in
the same, before they shall be
deemed eilgible to play on varsity
teams. This bars all freshmen, and
all new men from playing on varsity
teams for the period of one year.
The fact that such institutions
as Cornell, Harvard, Yale, Prince
ton, Columbia, Pennsylvania, and
most of the larger institutions have
seen fit to uphold this law, probably
speaks, more in its favor than any
The present athletic status of our
institution warrants and practically
demands,that this rule be adopted—
not to go into effect immediately,
for that would be too sudden,
but to be enforced from the fall of
It has been asserted by people
who know, that the failure of Penn
State to obtain more games with
universities and colleges of her
class, and to obtain recognition on
Camp's All American Team, was
due to a great extent, to the absence
of the One Year Rule. The ques-
tion arises in consequence:—ls it
not worth while to enhance our
athletic prospects and to better our
athletic status by passing such a
Some of the benefits to be deriv
ed from such a rule are as fol

Team would be much more likely.

The reputation of our teams and
of the institution would be strength
Men would have the opportunity
of a one year's acclimation to both
scholastic and athletic work.
It might be asserted by an op
ponent to the One Year Rule, that
Penn State is not ready for it—that
it has not always succeeded where
tried, and that the strength of the
teams would be impaired. In ans
wer to those statements it might be
said that, if we can beat such in
stitutions as Cornell and Pennsyl
vania, which have this rule, we at
least should be ready for the same.
The rule has met with failure only
in small institutions where the
material was very scarce. The
strength of the team would not be
affected, because the percentage
of freshmen on varsity teams is
small. At the same time the good
men would have a chance to play
for three years, or possibly four,
after their required residence; those
who would not stay longer than one
year, are not desirable from an
If this proposition is seriously
considered, it will readily be ap
parent that what we need in this
institution is the rule which pro
vides,f or a one year's residence to
obtain eligibility for varsity teams,

were passed. Let us this year
benefit our Alma Mater by passing

The First ample set last year,
Class Scrap the student council
has postponed the
pushball scrap until next Saturday,
and doubtless at some future date
will recommend to the student
body that a change be made in the
rules so that the scrap in the
future, as this year, will take place
on the third Saturday after the col
lege opening instead of the second,
as provided for at the present time.
The great difficulty which always
confronts the freshmen in the
scraps is the fact that they are not
well enough acquainted to recognize
their classmates, and hence are
often unable to successfully follow
a plan of organized resistance to
the experienced sophomores. An
extra week of preparation will do
much in remedying this difficulty,
and the action of the council in
postponing the conflict might well
be made a permanent feature of
the scrap rules.

The following student governing
bodies will remain active during
