The Presidential Election And
We supported Wendell Willkie, but we are not
of the opinion that (as a result of the election)—
... There will be any earthouakes today.
... The snows this winter will be any 'deeper
Nor do we believe that the FBI will haul us off
to jail, that any German bombers will be sighted
over the Panama Canal tomorrow, nor that the
American social order will explode into dust. the
very moment the President begins his third term.
No, gentle reader, if you expected us to predict
any of these things or even to say that the coun
try is headed for the rocks, you are wrong.
The truth is we are proud of Tuesday's election.
w Care - pl'oud of it because more people than
ever before in American history went to the polls
We are proud of it because we believe that, with
the aid of the radio and the press, they under
.slcod the issues more clearly than any previous
We are proud of it because it shows clearly that
even though the democratic way of life is dead in
Europe it is robust in the United States.
The President faces four hard years, four his
tory-making years. Clearly, the country now is
sailing on uncharted waters. We need to give him
more confidence and more help than he got even
He is our servant. We must help him. That
dt.es not mean that Willkie supporters need to
deny what they believed before the election: That
a• third terni is undesirable, and that the Presi
dent's domestic policy has" been bunked. How
ever, these and all the election issues now must
be subordinated to the more important problem of
unity on the national front.
The next four years of the President's admin
istration will probably not resemble the first
seven, but likely will bespeak the last one. It was
principally because of the international crisis that
the President was re-elected.
International rather than domestic issues will
likely dominate government activity during the
President's third term. He will need unity at
Unquestionably. some of that unity was neces
k;arily sacrificed during- the heated campaign. Mr.
Roosevelt now is president for foie' more years
tnd, from every loyal American, he deserves a
return of support.
For some of the Willkie followers who bitterly
opposed the President, unity may be a faraway
thing. It should not be. It need not be.
President Roosevelt in the past has shown a dis
icgard for precedent. As has been suggested, he
might appoint Mr. Wilikie to a key position in
home defense organization.
If Mr. Willkie is the sincere and capable man
most of his followers believe him to be, he will
rccept such an offer and perform his duty with
credit. If he does, a lot of campaign wounds will
be healed and the President.will have taken a big
step toward creating national solidarity at a time
vtilen it, more than anythine, ease, is needed.

We could tell you a lot of things about last
weekend. like Bayard Bloom sleeping through his
date for the game Saturday afternoon (this radio
certainly is a wonderful thing, eh, Alice?), and
Eddie Harris giving his girl half the jewelry in
State College and—but as we started to say, we're
Lo:na to let sleeping dogs lie and content our
selves with a summary of the pin situation.
Pins lost: Tom Vargo's sps badge to Sally Fab

Crosser, Bob Clark's phi sig badge to Jane Keith

Additional information: it seems that Keith and
Gibboney are roommates and both went out pin

a Cheshire cat ready to receive her roommate's ad

Pins returned: Dottie Wickersham's phi delt

At long last Gamma Sigs Bud Loeb, Bill Good

climbed in their car and headed for Philly. Sigh

At noon the weary three dragged themselves
back to the house for lunch, looked inside the door,
stared again, and accepted their fate. The girls had
taken the wrong turn at Harrisburg.

Letters to the Editor—
To the Editor:
In the 'Short time that it has
spent at State, the freshman class
has been given no opportunities
to prove its superiority over the
sophomore class. This has resulted
in quite a bit of indifference among
the freshman in regard to class
spirit. In order to raise the '44
class spirit to its optiino, something
must be done that will be support
ed by every man.
On behalf of the Class of '44,
I challenge the Class of '43 to a
tug-of-war, with two tons of our
halest and heartiest. men pitted
against two tons of their so-called
outstanding athletes—the hat men.
I am certain that this event would
hold the interest of every Penn
State man, and would promote a
class spirit that has never been'

IP With the re-election of Franklin
D. Roosevelt on Tuesday,- one of
the most vindictive, mud -slinging
presidential campaigns in the his
tory of this country came to a
close. The hurts, bruises, and ill
feeling resulting from this knock
down, drag-out national scrap are
extensive; but,. less than 24 hours
after the polls closed, Americans
were at work patching up these
injuries and preparing to again
work together, not for party, but
Two groups in particular scarce

negie Hall, New York City. The
speaker of the evening was How
ard Conley, one of the foremost
supporters of Wendell L. Winkle.
Other speakers, who pleaded, not
for victory of a certain party, but
for American shoulder-to-shoulder
cooperation, were noted men from
both sides of the major political
fence. A nationwide radio hook-up
carried their words into homes
throughout the country. •
The other move for the "closing
of American ranks" came from
The American Defenders of Free
dom in the form of a call "For
Unity for Americans All," signed
by 27 educators, editors, clergy
men, and labor leaders. It urged
that the nation remember that
"bruises, disappointments and •bit
