PAGE EIGHT Colonel Emery May Leave College To Head U. S. Infantry Mei Students Believe in Absolute Peace By Student Opinion Surveys AUSTIN, Tex., Nov. 14.—Unlike U. S. publ;c opinior, majority sen timent among college students to day holds that it is more import ant for the United States to try to keep out of war than to help Eng land even at the risk of becoming involved. Simultaneouoly ovcr the entire nation. Student Opinion Surveys of America has sent its interview ers to query all types of students ,on large and small campuses, pre senting to them a problem vital to American youth, a question many times discussed in a thousand dor mitory and boarding house bull session. With the cooperation of The Daily Colleg:an and scores of other newspaper members, the Surveys has gathered and tabulat ed these opinions by means of scientific sampling methods. Here are the results: Students were asked which of the two following things they thought was more important for the U. S. to try to dc. Their an swers, in percentages, are given after each statements—. Keep the U. S. out of war .55% Help England, even at the risk of getting into the war 45% This is not what their elders think. A Gallup poll recently pointed out that the majority of Americans believe the British are holding our first line of defense and helping them is more import ant than merely trying, to steer away from the conflict. Students, however, have repeat edly.shown their tendency toward isolationism and their strong de sire to avoid another war. For two years the Surveys has been gaug ing collegiate sentiment the na tion over. ENCHANTING ! ! !

Dedication Closes Dealers Meeting At the dedication exercises of the new Agricultural Engineering Building held yesterday afternoon, the two-day annual meeting of the Pennsylvania Far in Equipment Dealers' Association came to a close. Dean Stevenson W. Fletcher, School of Agriculture, who pre sided at the afternoon session, re minded the crowd in attendance that the School of Agriculture is dedicated to the service of Penn sylvania agriculture, including the engineering phases. The development of mechanized farming was briefly reviewed by J. W. Cooper, president of the Pennsylvania Tractor and Imple ment Club. He told how farm ma chinery began with the invention of the reaper in 1831, followed by the thresher in 1834, the steel plow in 1837, and the mower in 1858. The first steam tractor was made in 1849, he said, but like the first tractors powered by internal corn bustion engines, steam tractors proved too heavy for plowing. More recently light tractors have brought about changes in prac tically all farm machines, was an other statement made by the speaker. HAVE ANYTHING TO SELL WANT TO RENT A ROOM LOOKING FOR A RIDE!
