Records Show No
Enrollment Drop
"Contrary to the statement in
last Sunday's New York Times,"
said Frank D. Kern, dean of the
Graduate School, "enrollment has
risen by 26 over last year's enroll
ment at the same period."
The New York Times said,
",Penn State, with a general in
crease, records a decrease of 163
in the graduate schools traceable
to acceptance of positions in in
dustries affected by the national
defense program. In the case of
graduate students majoring in en
gineering alone, there were nine
resignations arising from this
Opposed to this statement is the
fact that enrollment this year is
524, while last year's enrollment
was 498. There was a decrease ac
cording to figures now obtainable,
in the number of students enrolled
in the agriculture, engineering, and
liberal arts, but an increase in edu
cation, cherdistry, and mineral in-:
dustries. Hovievek, this is -insigni
ficant because of the:natural varia
tion from year to year.
' Except for. a decrease recorded
in enrollment for 1934-35 enroll
ment has steadily .risen every year.
It was naturally expected to drop.

fense situation, but so far the facts
are contradictory.

Sadie Hawkins Day Set November 9;
To Be Climaxed By Spinster Skip
Following the action of Sadie
Hawkin's father, who created a
holiday in Dog Patch for his ugly
daughter to catch a husband, All-
College Cabinet voted to set aside
November 9 as Sadie Hawkins Day
here at its meeting last night.
Although national Sadie Hawk
ins Day will be observed on other
campuses November 2, Penn State
coeds will wear skirts and shoes
which facilitate running after the
men of their choices at the Cabinet
date since houseparties prevent
date reversals on the national day.
The day when women will adopt
Dog Patch's Sadie's tactics of chas
ing prospective husbands will cul
minate in Mortar Board's Spin
ster Skip in White Hall from 9 to
12 p.m. with music by the Campus
Decorations for the dance will
follow the Sadie Hawkins theme,
according to Ruth Goldstein '4l,
decoration chairman. Comic strip
paper ' dolls and Little Abner
sketches by Jean C. Craighead '4l,
will provide the setting for the'
dance when coeds escort their,
The male "Catch-of-the-Cam-'
pus" will be crowned at the Skip.

Conflicting Actions
Confuse Drive
What action WSGA will take on
its proposed war relief drive was
uncertain today after the conflict
ing actions taken last night by
WSGA Senate and the All-College
In a meeting at 8 o'clock, the
WSGA Senate approved a drive
for funds for the British War Re
lief Society to be conducted from
November 4 to 9.
An hour later, All-College Cab
inet met and adapted a motion that
all war relief drives should be
gathered into one campaign to be
conducted next spring. '
The Cabinet motion came after
- a proposal was made to have a
drive sponsored by student govern
ment for funds for the World Stu
dent Service Fund. This was pass.:
ed up in favor of the motion for a
united drive.
Elinor L. Weaver 41, WSGA
president, reported after the Cab

action could be forthcoming until
the Senate meets again next Tues

We, The Women--
About Gardens, Art
And School Spirit
IT WAS with regret that we
watched the flower garden in front
of the Zoology building, eing plow
ed under, but it is with poignant
distress that we learn the 78-year
old campus beauty spot will be re
planted—but with grass. Soothing
green will never satisfactorily re
place the brilliant colors of the
first College garden.
cussed in terms of national wel
fare, communal good, and Amer
icanism these days, it is good to see
that our country's culture is not
being left in the background. There
has been •an important swing to
American music, literature, and
art which receives-fresh impetus
from such organizations as the
newly-formed Students Art Group
which will present non-technical
art appreciation talks which every
one may attend.
DEDUCING that the decadence
of College spirit has been propor
tional to the increase of coed en
rollment is as inane as claiming a
native who shot a buffalo with a
bright red arrow - would always
have the same hunting luck when
toting the exact missile.
