Student Hunters
Ask Exemption
From Cut Fines
The first opposition to the cut
fine rule was brought last night
by a group of student deer-hunt
ers who voted to present a peti
tion to the Senate Rules Commit
tee asking for the recall of fines
imposed on, hunters who cut class
es the first day of deer season,
December 2.
December 2 was the first day
of 'classes after Thanksgiving va
cation and included within the
48-hour cut fine period.,
Robert A. Wasser '42, who
heads the group, said that the
Senate Committee on Vacation
Absences has already considered
the case but the members had dis
agreed and for that reason
been referred to the Committee on
Wasser said they would seek
the backing of All-College Cabi
net and A. R. Warnock, Dean of
Men, and added that they • felt
"reasonably sure" that such back
ing could be obtained.
All hunters expected to sign
the petition, he said, can present
proof that they were in State Col
lege on December 1, the day be
fore classes started.
"We were under the impression
that we would be excused from
classes," Wasser said. "It has been
a tradition for .20 years that for
esters, at least, are not required
to attend classes the first day "of
hunting season."
In addition to Wasser,,members
of the -committee in charge are
Roy R. Beck '4l, Glenn L. Bow
ers '43, Paul E. Rumbaugh '42,
and Benjamin 0. Wilmer '42.
Late News
Madrid Sir Samuel, British\
ambassador to Spain, told Gener
al Franco yesterday that England
would give Gibraltar back to
Spain at the end of the war. The
attempt of the British to get the
good favor of the Spanish people
might have been aimed toward
their objections to the submarine
• bases at Spanish owned Tangiers.
An unbelievable large force of
German planes occupied all the
landing fields in Spain yesterday.
The reason for the sudden heavy
arming of that country was un
known but the Spanish counsel of
fered several plausible ideas. They
believe that the Germans are get
ting ready for a knockout blow to
England and that their country is
the safest place to store planes;
that the occupation of planes, on
Spanish soil would take the Nazi
forces nearer to the shipping lines;
and a very logical one, that they
wish to take Gibraltor.
Berlin A Soviet ambassador
was given an audience before Hit
ler yesterday after waiting six
weeks. This move shows that Hit
ler is evidently not too anxious to
talk• with the Rxissian embassy.
The meeting was thought to cover
the Russian-German trade agree-

Guidance Plan
Plans for the vocational guid
ance program in the School of
Liberal Arts are progressing rap
idly, it was revealed yesterday
by Miss Julia G. Brill and Prof.
Henry B. Young, both of the Eng
lish composition department.
Professor Young and Miss Brill
were appointed vocational coun
sellors for men' and women stu
dents in the School at last week's
faculty meeting. These appoint
ments, it was explained by Dean
Charles W. Stoddart, are not of
ficial positions and will be held in
addition to regular teaching duties.
Vocational proDiems of women
students have been handled by
Miss Brill for several years in the
Liberal Arts 12 course. She in
vited all women students in the
School of Liberal Arts to make
use of the facilities of her office.
Guidance pamphlets and other
materials are available, she said.
"Feelers" are being sent out by
Professor Young to various busi
ness concerns in order to deter
mine the job prospects of men
students. By this method he in
tends to show how courses in Lib
eral Arts can meet the needs of
modern business and industry.
Using broadcasting as an example
he said that radio announcers
with a speech and musical appre
ciation background have better
job prospects than radio engin
eers. •
Although the facilities of his
office are. still in the process of
development, Professor Young
expressed the desire that men.
students in the School of Liberal
Arts make use of materials on.
hand at the present time.
