Housing Board Proposes
Assistant Dean Of Men
Room Inspection Would
Be New Officer's Duty-
The appointment of an assist
ant dean of men under Dean A. R.
Warnock to better coordinate hous
ing, fraternity, and non-'fraternity
problems was proposed to the ad=
ministration by the Student Hous
ing Board in a surprise move last
Because the Housing Board con
sidered that the physical and so
cial development of the College
has increased faculty and student
relationships, it was suggested that
the proposed assistant dean 'of men
could relieve Dean Warnock of
some of his administrative duties.
The duties of the assistant dean,
as outlined by the committee,
would be to supervise the inspec
tion of houses, cement fraternity
and non-fraternity relations, _and
concentrate on alleviating some of
the non - fraternity organization
In cooperation with Dr. -Joseph
P. fßitenour, director of the Col
lege Health Service, the assistant
dean would draw up an approved
list of temporary or leased rooms
and act as a one-man housing
placement bureau.
The Board believed that this
plan would solve some of the prob
lems of the , fraternity rushing per
iod by the assistant dean holding
a complete list of temporary rooms
for prospective pledges.
Members.- of _the Student Hous
ing Board for this year, are John
M. Byerly '4l, chairman, H. Ed

perq.ts 22, Prof. Harold F. Alderfer,
executive secretary of the Institute
of Ldcal Government, predicted
Although Professor A lderf e r
missed only one county in 1932,
he refuses to predict the final out
come of the state as a whole.
`His - Prediction bised :Upon a
study of County voting since 1920;
Democratic strength is being mus
tered largely from urban, indus
trial, and coal mining counties,
while Republican strength is com
ing from the rural areas of the
state, •Professor Alderfer says.
He predicts that the Democrats
will take the following counties:
Allegheny, Beaver, Berks, Cam

Montour, +Northampton, Northum

other 45 counties.

Economics Underlies War, Pundt Says
Dr. Alfred G. Pundt, speaking
before the International Relations
Club last night on "Territorial
Changes in Europe Since 1933,"
gave as the basis for the boundary
expansions of Germany and Italy
their need for economic expansion
in the way of freer markets.
"The territorial and political
changes resulting from the treaties
at the end of the World War gave
little assurance that :peace would
be permanent,". Dr. ilundt pointed

some detail upon the Austrian and
Czechoslovakian annexations. In
Austfia, Dr. Pundt explained, the
National Socialists took advantage
of the breach between the Catholic
parties and the Socialist party,
while in Czechoslovakia, the diff
erence between the existing Czech
national government and the
hoped-for federation of Czechs,
Slovaks, and other nationalities
provided the breach by which the

enigma of world politics. "How
ever," Dr. Pundt said, "Russia is
now largely governed by fear of
Germany. Such was not quite the
case earlier in the war when Rus
sia expected to take advantage of
the weakening of both sides."
hT his opinion, the interdepend
ence of Germany's manufacturing
industries and South America's ag
ricultural and raw material eco
nomy would be effective l in Count
erbalancing , any Pan - American

Dr. Pundt assumed that "a single

that political considerations would

team on to greater heights or mar
the season's perfect record. Vic

the passing arm of Bill Smaltz to
chalk up the winning margin.

teams for the past two years a
a hot performance by either one

The line which started the Le
