AAUP Petitions Congress
For Hatch Act Change
A petition to Congress that
will attempt to gain permission
for College employees to parti
cipate in borough government
was adopted at a meeting of
the American Association of
University Professors held in
the Sandwich Shop last night.
This action was brought
about by an apparent discrim
ination in the present Hatch
Act which restricts employees
of State-appropriated schools
from being active in local gov
ernment. It has been estimat
ed that about 70 per cent of
State College voters are Col
lege employees.

Froth Christmas Issue
Out Soon, Is Rumor
Being whispered about campus
is, the rumor that the Christmas
issue of Froth may make its ap
pearance soon.
Don West '4l, the mag's optimis
tic editor, hints that the issue may
even come out before school closes
for the holidays. He hopes!
changing their customs and man
ner of living, and that the natives
of Latin America resented this
very much.
"We can not hope to become
friends•with the natives, of South
America if we treat them as in
feriors," de cla r e d Dr. Gray.
"They must be regarded as equals
to attain any political or economic
successes with them."
"President Roosevelt is well
liked. in South America," stated
Dr. Gray. "With South Am
erica cut off from Europe as the
result of the war, we must re
double our efforts to straighten out
our difficulties with the Latin Am
erican nations and come to a real
understanding with them."
