Editor This Issue IJ••ws Editor This Issue ____ Winten's Editor This Issue _ S.,olionore Assistant Thursday Morning, November 7, 1940 The Presidential Election And America's Future 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 ti,an usual. 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 to vote. 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 American electorate. 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 im 1933. 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.

Prodigal Pins 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.

Sigh ing with relief, said fellows went to class. 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— Frosh Challenges Sophomore Class 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' equalled. Jack J.

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 for country. Two groups in particular scarce ly waited for the shouting to die 'away before starting the ball of -American unity rolling. Last night, The Council For Democracy, a group whose board includes some of the nation's leading men in al most every profession, .held a United American Rally in Car 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 terness" left over from the cam paign "should not in good sense be allowed to remain to divide our strength." All this comes, without further comment, as an answer. to 'those people who have been crying the blues over nasty things done and said in the recent campaign—who fear that American Democracy is doomed. Independent Party Holds Social Tomorrow At a meeting of the Independent Party in the, Home Economics aud itorium last night, plans were made for an informal social to be held at Sigma Pi tomorrow night. • Men and women students of all classes are invited to the affair which will begin - at 8:30 p.m. Re freshments will be served and fa cilities for dancing provided. - Gerald F.
