Lefs Go, Buffalo! The BEE VoL 2 BUFFALO, N. Y. NOVEMBER 22, 1921 No. 1 The BEE Severs Its Connection With The Buffalo Commercial U.-B. Holds R.P.1. Scoreless liBst Saturday, over two hundred football fans stood in a steady down­ pour of rain to witness the University of BuflFalo and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute elevens fight to a scoreless tie on a field that was literally a sea otn mud. Rensselaer nearly crossed the line twice in the second half, but the Buf­ falo team held. Fate robbed Vanini of scoring a touchdown. He caught a punt and ran it back twenty-five yards breaking through the whole Rensselaer team, and, with an open field in front of him, he stumbled and slid into a waiting pool of water. Both teams played hard and in spite of the inclement weather, the fans witnessed a real game of football. Early in the afternoon it started to rain and continued until the final whistle blew. This weather did not stop the 200 rooters from being pres­ ent at the grand finale of Buffalo’s 1921 football season . Iris Uldmatum John L. Hoffman, editor in chief of this year’s “Iris” has announced the following dates for the receipt of all material • All cartoons and class headings to be ready for the approval of the Art Editci cn or before February 1, 1922. All other matter must be given to the staff members not later than Feb­ ruary 25. These dates are absolutely final and any matter turned in thereafter will not be accepted. Classes will be notified when to re­ port to the photographer. The 1922 “Iris” will contain 440 pages and 125 illustrations. The edit ors promise more cartoons an dnevv cover pages. Last year’s cover has been adopted as a standard. In the past, “The Iris” has been one of the best year books in the country anti this year’s publication gives every indication of being the be.st one ever issued by the University. Orrin E. Foster Due to the generosity of Mr. Fo.stei and his family, the first building of the Greater University, Fo.ster Hall, is now under construction. “The Bee” feels it is most fitting and proper that hi.s picture should be the first to ap­ pear withing its columns and takes this means of thanking the Foster family on behalf of the students ot Buffalo. “The Bee”, which last year appeared in the Buffalo Commercial, as a daily college paper, makes its initial appear­ ance today as an independent weekly. The Activities Committee believes the time is ripe for an independent newspaper and is, therefore launching “The Bee.” Whether or not this University will have a newspaper depends upon the student body. Unless 1000 students subscribe for “The Bee” Buffalo will not have this feature which is so es­ sential to college life. If the student body does not get behind “The Bee” with its subscriptions this idea will be dormant for years to come. The time> for definite action has arrived. A news staff with a year’s exper­ ience and about 25 candidates who hope to make the staff stand prepared to publish this paper. It is the purpose of the staff to increase the issue of “The Bee” to a semi-weekly and later to a tri-weekly. The issue is up to you. The first edition is a present to the school but later only subscribers will get the paper. Every class should have had an op­ portunity to subscribe for the “Bison” and “The Bee.” If you have not had such an opportunity please fill out the following blank and hand it to your class president who will forward them to V.
