Yes, We Really Mean It—
Beet ItY.ll.
• As soon as we say, "Beat N.Y.U.," we are going
•to hear from a number of readers who will believe
It•is is not a very courteous way to greet a visiting
football team. Add to that the fact here are quite
a few : N.Y-.U. students who made the trip to State
College this weekend and , you'll see just how in
hospitalable Collegian can be. •
Approved editorial procedure demands that a
Conclusion be reached only aftar both sides have
keen heard. This is a lengthy proceLs which Col
,tegian completed to. its own satisfaction.
The result, however, was i.vwth the effort be
cause. it. showed- conclusively, to Collegian's way
of thinking .on partisan matters like school spirit,
that "Beat N.Y.U." is well based. The points in
favor outnumber and outweigh these: against.
In order to clarify- the !ssues as much as possi
ole. the case is here presented in outline form.
Penn State is unbeaten this year. It would be
a shame to mar such a nice record.
If we win we will get good publicity in
a. All papers.
b. Especially the New York papers.
c. Radio
If we lose, we will
a.. Get bad publicity.
b. Drop out of the first 7.0 ir the. national
c. Pass out of the bowl pictures.
d. Hurt our chances of producing an All-
Penn State is the favorite, Everybody plays
favorites. Everybody hates to pick a loser.
Thus everybody will be sorry if Penn State
If we win we will make a good impression on
all the guests who will be in tov:n this week
6. Last night's pep rally would be discredited.
7. N.Y.U. beat us in basketball l'ast winter and
we never have beaten them in football.
H. We want to win.
The N.Y.U. boys. have made. a 'long, trip. It
would be. a shame to disappoint them.
2. N:Y:U. has won only• two games this year. We
really shouldn't be greedy.
S. The New York sportswriters wcn't• have nearly
as much fun filing, their stories if Penn State
N.Y.U., too, wants to . win
This shows clearly, Collegian thinks, that Penn
State riot only deserves to. but• simuld win today.
Whereas Collegian can think of eight reasons why
Penn State should win, it can think of orgy four
or N.Y.U.
The only path left is to do our editorial duty.
• Beat N.Y:U.
"At a time. of great emotional .?ppeal such. as
that which now prevails, one. will do well to. con
centrate upon one's work more than ever and to,
be unswayed by speculations or vague conimen
iaries filled with forebodying for the future."—
Pres. Thomas S. Gates of the University of Penn
;;,i lvania cautions against false prophets.

Fifth= Column,
We. have often wondered about Cassius but it
rever occurred to us to report him to the FBI.
That's what a local merchant did when Cassius
came out . with some unpatriotic* remark. These
are bad days for radical.; Cas: especially when
you look the part.
Pat Nagelberg, Collegian Casanova, is griped
lecause his date didn't giVe him a corsage for the
Sadie Hawkins dance. Pat . says he had, to eat the
radishes from Chick Harvey's truck farm. And
we always thought you AoPi's were big-hearted

Bill "Mysto" McKnight, Kappa Sig radio ty
coon, is keeping the boys up nights with his new
short wave radio station. All his brothers are
polishing up their radio voices fcr State's pro
posed radio station. They're not going to be
caught in the same spot Willk;e was.
Never Say Die
Ted Baldwin and Dick Steboini received their
llometown paper, the "Northeast Breeze," yester
day. The headlines in the paper lead: ROOSE
JORITY IN NORTHEAST. Northfrast is a small
hamlet near Erie.
Evon Wilson, Theta Throb, was really burned
the other day when she noticed - in the new direc
tor y that she was listed as sophomore when she
really and truly is a junior. The, spunky Evon
whipped into the Registrar's office to•give them
a piece of her mind. She did and Registrar Hoff
man waited patiently until she fnished, then
pulled out Evon's registration card:, and showed
her where she had checked: class: . Sophomore.
Love Lies •
Pat Behney, one of the seven beautiful blonde
Kappas, has transferred her aVections from cheer
fnl Charley Mattern to jumping Johnny Long.
Some guys have all the luck. Congratulations, too,
zre in order to another blonde, Ad: Lord. Ada
has done what no other coed has been able to do
in three years. Namely, date Phi Gam Jackie
Sloan for more than two dates.
Every once in a while we wonder what on earth
people like Mildred 'Greenberg go to College for.
The other day in Journaln,m 13 class Mildred was
asked how many men were on a football team. She
d:ian't know.

Bill Finn, ladykiller super par excellence, has
all the Campus belles crying in their cokes. Bill,
rater - giving all the local ladies a whirl, has gone
and. got himself a true love namecl Flossie.
We have always said that if you can't boast,
don't knock, but there is :31.tch a thing asconstruc
tive criticism. As a poet, Campuscer, you are
even worse than you are as a columnist. Why .don't
ou try brick laying now that you've laid so .many
eggs. And we don't mean the fresh variety.
- John Keats contrasts the lot of bird and man
by describing the world of man as one 'Where but
to think is to be full of sorrow.' There are three
things that may be said in answer to this despair.-
First, it is encouraging that man can look out upon
life and say of this or that 'lt is not good.' Second,
it is encouraging that the recognition of wrong
challenges us to eradicate it. Third, it is en
couraging to know that we. can band together in
the; determination, to place ourselves• on, the. side.
of those forces that make for the progress of
civilization." Western, Maryland College's Pres
ident, Fred, G. Holloway challenges the pessi
"There is no greater menace at the moment than,
the danger- that- sensitiveness to evil, should- be.
come numb by reason of constant familiarity with
evil. We shall not- save. our Way of life through
denunciation of the Wrong; salVation can only be
achieved, by active practice of the. right."--Pres.
Charles Seymour of, Yaye Univercity calls for
