Secretary of I. P. A. Visits State
Mr Neil D. Cranmer, of Syra
cuse, the eastern secretary of the
Intercollegiate Prohibition Associa
tion, visited Penn State over Sun
day. He spoke to a special meet
ing of the league at 1:30 Saturday.
In reviewing the work of other
Pennsylvania colleges it appears
that Penn State is somewhat be
hind smaller colleges like Dickin
son and Gettysburg, where there
are only one-fifth as many students.
While here Mr. Cranmer added at
least 20 new members to the roll of
40 of the local league.
On Sunday at three o’clock a
fairly large audience heard the
talk on two important topics, “The
Legal Phase of the Liquor Prob
lem" and "Does Prohibition Pro
hibit?” Decisions of state and
national supreme courts show the
sale of intoxicating liquor to be
unconstitutional. Therefore, to over
throw this “Legalized Outlaw” all
that is needed is that the govern
ment break its partnership with it,
Does prohibition prohibit? A
few arguments are as follows: If
liquor men (in a dry state) say it
does not prohibit they confess that
they are law breakers. In one
month’s travel in Maine Mr. Cran
mer saw only two drunken men in all
the cities and they were apparently
old timers, not young men. If pro
hibition does not prohibit, why do
liquor men oppose it so strenuous
The saloon is the poor man’s
club only in one sense. It is used
to beat his wife and knock the
bread from his children’s hands.
In a representative case it was
found that 50 out of 65 drinking
men go to the saloon for drink
rather than social life.
Finally, Mr. Cranmer set forth
the aims and activities of the
I. P. A. as a whole, and at Penn
State in particular. The depart
ments of the work include a study
class every two weeks; lectures by
college instructors giving the rela
tion of liquor to different lines of
work; the home, state and national
oratorical contests; and as exercise,
deputation work supplemented by
students’ articles published in coun
ty newspapers. The fact that the
league has no connection whatever
with the Prohibition party was
strongly emphasized. The work of
this organization will bear investiga
tion. This question, the greatest
in the world today, must be faced
by every student.

THE PENN STATE COLLEGIAN'
FARMERS’ WIVES LEARN
TO CUT HIGH LIVING COSTS
Practical illustrations in reduc
ing the cost of living are to be giv
en farmers’ wives at the Pennsyl
vania State College in connection
with the Winter Course in Agri
culture. For several years farm
ers from all over the State have
come here to learn the newest
wrinkles in scientific agriculture,
and this year their wives are of
fered equal chances to- improve
their methods of doing daily tasks.
Miss Pearl MacDonald, who
came from Wisconsin to help the
wives of Pennsylvania farmers
solve the increasingly difficult
problems of household administra
tion, will conduct the new work.
She will tell the women studying
Home Economics about the com
positions of various foods, the
purposes they serve in the body,
food values, the principles of cook
ing, proper food combinations and
food substitutes. Miss MacDon
ald said since every home-keepei
must consider the food problem
three times each day, every day in
the year, because of the steady ad
vance in food prices, a reliable
knowledge of food materials is be
coming indispensable for the wom
an in the home who desires to pur
chase those materials wisely and
to nourish her household properly.
A course will also be given in
Home Nursing and Emergencies.
It will include a discussion of the
nature of diseases and their causes,
and of simple practical methods to
be followed in the home-care of the
UNITED STATES UNPRE
PARED TO RESIST GERMAN
The absolute lack of military
preparation in the United States
to support the Monroe Doctrine
was strikingly put before the class
in military science at the Pennsyl
vania State College, today, by Lieu
tenant A. D. Chaffin, U. S. A., com
mandant of the cadet regiment.
Lieutenant Chaffin told the students
that the notion held in this coun
try that the United States could
not be invaded is not shared by
military experts of Europe. He
said that if Germany had no com
plications nearer home, and had a
mind to challenge the Monroe Doc
trine, she could put 200,000 per
fectly trained troops in New Eng
land more quickly than her Hes
sians came here in 1776 to help
“Von Edelsheim, a member of
the German general staff,” said
Lieutenant Chaffin, “has published
an interesting account of the meth
ods by which Germany could ‘im
pose her will’ on the United States.
She could land a force, he declares,
that would overwhelm our feeble
army, and brush aside our recruits.
She could isolate one or more of
our great centers, tear up the rail
roads, hold the cities to ransom,
destroy our public or quasi-public
buildings, and all other structures
that might be advantage to a de
fending army. There would be no
thought of permanent conquest but
Von Edelsheim is serenely confi
dent that a German army could
wreak such havoc in a very short
time that this country would be
glad to quit.”
The following conversation was
overheard as the people Were leav
ing the Auditorium after the con
cert last Sunday night.

everybody stand up when the band
plays The Star Spangled Banner?”
