Capper '43 Thursday Mornirug,-December 19. 194(1 What's Up With The IMA? What's up with the Independent Men's Associa tion? Anything? Collegian wishes the answer were icing and com plicated Apparently it is not. There is nothing lip with the IMA. All is quiet on that front, The IMA had better not reply that there is noth ing Up because there is nothing to do. Organiza tions that have nothing to do have no excuse for ckisting Pounded two years• ago and dedicated to the yrentiositinn of improving the tot of the indepen dent man, the IMA grew perhaps too , fast for its cWn good, launclied an ambitious program of in creasing social opportunity for the non-fraternity ;group, won general approval, arid then fizzled. out like a half-cent firecracker. if no one could accuse the IMA of hurting any thing, not much would have to be said about the Yilaiier, and some dark night before the odor got too terrific, a shOvel crew could take the corpse exit and bury it quietly t 1-loWever, it persists in calling itself an Indepen dent Men's Association, persists in calling spas linddic and badly attended meetings, pretends to I•Je doing a job it really is not doing, and a job it this prevents anyone else from attempting. Like IFC the IMA needs the strong faculty counseling that has been asked and hoped for in an enlarged dean of men's staff, but, like IFC, the IMA should manage to do a little something fot If the IMA has conducted any exte.nsiv, intra rotirals this fall, Collegians has not heard of them If it has had more than one well attended meet ing, Collegian is surprised. If it has undertaken—not just thought about— any organized social program to match that of the fraternity system, that is news. If it has seriously tried to boost its membership vThidli has dropped from 17 to 11 units, Collegian 41as not heard of it. If it has started—not just talked about—even one worthwhile new project, Collegian will be glad to know about it. If it doesn't do something or start something, Collegian is going to have a lot more to say. The Mountain Lodge teunds provided by the All-College Cabinet Tuesday night niche it possible for work to begin next March on the mountain lodge provi , jed for tiy the class gift of 19.3 The funds wilt allow completion of only the central portion oC the lodge with full kitchen, and dormitory facilities still to be provided. Collegian did not and still does not believe that it was wise to erect only part of the proposed Cabin and then wait for more ftinds to appear, but action how must be based cm what has already beett clothe. The opinion of the Cabinet on thiS matter *eras to indicate the best - possible course and the &Rine which the All-College Nicreation Commit tee favors: That every effort shall now be press cB to raise immediately the several thousands of dollars necessary to complete the lodge in all re spects so as to make it unnecessary to endure its . obvious deficiencies.

Nuyear. egnefit Events We note with interest the news item on the front page of yesterday's DAILY COLLEGIAN to the effect that the college had levied 385 fines of $5 each in enforcing the Thanksgiving Day class cut Rule. That ain't exactly hay! We took three or four math courses around here, to say nothing of Money and Banking and every time that we figger it out, we get the same total—sl92s in fines. That still ain't exactly hay! So we came to the conclusion the only smart thing for the Bursar to do is to stop by McLan ahan's and get one of the new Buxton Wallets, that they arc featuring for the Holiday trade at $2.00. Anyone who has that much money ought to have a safe place to keep it, and those Buxtons sure fill that bill or something. Smartly designed in 4 black or brown, they'd make an ideal gift. Yes, they have the Lady Buxton for Women and that's plenty smart, too. Seeopiet* The Sumer Ent, We have it on good 'authority that the -Maniac has uncovered enough evidence and plans to write a red-hdt expose on the fact that Penn State Co- Eds prefer Mary Lincoln and Whitman candies over any other brands, sold locally at McLana hans (adv't). With this valuable fadt at yaw' disposal, you don't. have to haVe a Phi Beta Kappa key on your watch chain to arrive at the conclusions that; 1, Mary Lincoln and Whitman candies. (sold. at. MC- Lahahans) are very popular on this campus: 2, Tither one would make an ideal gift• for any co-ed. , Both are Gift Packaged. Mary Lincoln sells two pounds for one dollar. Whitman's a pound for a dollar. Advertisement.

Is this motto just five words or is the Daily Collegian for the betterment of the Pennsylvania - State College? You permitted some idiotic nin compoop to jeopardize the reputa tion of one of our women students, Miss Bischoff. Any person who hasn't enough mentality to res pect the women of our institution is an ignorant . ass who should never have entered our college. Yet you allow him to write for our paper. At the beginning of each year when the Collegian is enticing subscribers, your sales Men tell us how splendid it would be to buy two Subscriptions and send one home to our parentS. Please tell us who would want to send this issue of December 14th home to his parents? Mr. Smyser, as editor of the Col legian, you have erred in permit ting such an article to be publish ed. You should read this "scandal" column before it is published and determine whether everything is all right. When we say that every thing should be all right, we don't mean that it should only be true, but we also mean that the remarks made should not injtire anyone. As -for our part, we think that you owe this girl an apology which should be written in the Daily Col legian to 'show that you aren't a nincompoop yourself. Sincerely yours, James G.
