THE FIRST WEEK
IMPRESSIONS of the incoming editor are varied as
he writes his first and most difficult piece. In some
instances they are already molded; in others they
await important events that are dotting the rapidly
changing picture of this college.
This is the time of year when next year seems the im
portant one to consider. This is a week of many prob
lems. This is the time when this editor wishes to talk
about those vital things for next year that are being de
Perhaps preeminent in the student mind now is 'the
campaign for the duos officers to be selected Monday
and Tuesday of next week. This campaign is being
waged in the spirit of reform; it is different front any
yet conducted. All parties of all classes have pledged
virtually the same things.
The Collegian will view this election impartially, sup
porting no one candidate for any position. It will await
with interest the fulfillment of the campaign promises
of the winners : . It hopes that those persons will further
the reform that all have agreed now is necessary
Equally important when considering next year is the
meeting of the Board of Trustees in Harrisburg this
week-end. When that is over, many feel that the status
of the college building program will be much clearer. It
is thought that the college appropriation will be definite
The Collegian realizes that this appropriation and the
separate funds for buildings will enlarge the enrollment
of both men and women tremendously. When that hap

to the occasion? The Collegian wants to do its part in
this. It wants to help Penn State. At the same time
it wants to remain a newspaper.
Expected, too, at the trustee meeting is a decision con
cerning the new dean of the School of Physical Educa
tion and Athletics. The Collegian believespatthe dis

Whether or not one man can do all that is the ques

Many alumni feel more for winning intercollegiate
teams than they do for physical education. Just how
much voice the alumni should have in such a matter is
another point. Where does the advisory athletic hoard
It is evident that not many people know just what the
score is concerning all this. The whole thing at this
point rests on the president of the college. It is his
recommendation that the trustees must consider.

week. Thus does the Collegian as a newspaper throw
its weight. As a newspaper to interest etudeats will it
Writing the traditional dirt column has its prob

The Trustees will meet tomorrow in Harrisburg
supposedly to name a successor to Hugo Bezdek as
Dean of the School of Physical Education and Ath-

The Collegian recently said that Dr. Carl Schott
would be the new athletic dean. It seems to he - the
general opinion of those close to the situation that the
appointment was just a shot in the dark.
Jo Hobart saw John Price at the top of last week's
Froth, and wondered if the price had dropped from
25 cents to a nickel ... Bobbie Dewalt wrote his I.F.
date, Mary, and started off with "Dear Betty."
About town and campus—Newell Townsend couldn't
get some beer in Clearfield Tuesday with the Thes
pians because the waitress said he was too young ...
he finally did get some, though ... The group was in
vited out to a country club there, but had to buy its
own drinks . . . hospitality . .. and what could the
chaperones have been doing there? . . .
Probably the most rabid peace advocate on the
campus is the boy who bribed another gent, a senior,
to take a two-hour ROTC class this week . it cost
a buck and didn't work anyhow, because the army is
pretty smart and while on the army, Gus Para
melli, upon coming in late. was asked by a ROTC offi
cer if he was Brake ... No, says Gus, I'm Italian.
Then there's that southern gal from Georgia named
Cohen who was overheard saying "I've just got to
find a husband before I get out of here."
We wonder 'who the psych prof was who told his
class to go home becauie it was spring and he had the
proverbial fever . . One of the best answers to an
intricate question in a c&f class last week was Jack
Reithenbach's "I was just about to ask 'you that."
A. Kok answered the recent sign hi Old Main read
ing "have you the essentials for a business woman?"
No, says A, but Jean Harlow has.
A recent Collegian story said that real college spirit
:s found throughout our undergraduate centers. So
that's where it went.
If all the reds on this campus were placed end to
end, someone would be bound to put his foot into an

THE PENN STATE COLLEGIAN
27 Co-Ed Debaters
Women's argumentative powers
were recognized in the old days, but
Penn State's history shows' that the
co-eds' ability to get the last word
was not utilized in the college. That,
perhaps, was the reason that the wo
men's debate squad started at the
bottom of the ladder.
The men's team boasted quite a
number of would-be orators who were
encouraged to use what wits they had
against numerous schools. Women
who were born to be champions of the
argumentative field, were thrust into
the background.. Their star of dispu
tation didn't begin its ascent until
1926, when they were given their first
schedule. 1n'1.931 eight women came
out to try their ability against nine
Through the years the squad's star
rose until it came to its most promin
ent position this season when 27 wo
men joined its ranks and debated with
