M^rst of last year then* was dancing in th«» £?• !«»n;i^.:;:::: during the t iitir. n»-v>;i hour e\er\ school day. Music was supplied hy students who volunteered their services at the piano and a large |M»rcentage of the students tot'k advantage of the opportunity offered for a good time and for practice in dancing. This last sounds only slightly im- portant hut it was surprising to learn the number ot students who profited hy this experience in improving their style for the more imiM»rtant functions of the year. The nunit* r of t»ermaneiit stilus dwindled at the regular school dancers l>ecuu k :e of the confi- dence they liad gained at these afternoon frolics. The music department has already sup- plied a phonograph in the gym and all that is lacking for the renewal of this custom is a small fund for the purchase of new records. Mr. Workman, has expressed, a desire to be of help in the undertaking and all that he needs is the assurance of the student body that they will support him when he presents the prohleni to the Student Council. Do we want to dance dur- ing the noon hour? See Mr. Workman and tell him so. Hell do the rest. LETS CO, GIRLS! More than 50 per cent of the student h<*dy are women. Surprising hut true. Baskett»aII season starts soon. Kven more surprising hut still true. The women will be at the game and will cheer more lustily than the men. Is this true? Walt and see. There are a number of women basketball players in the school of a calibre that would put the Vassar players to shame and LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor: This l- in answer ;o the question of frosh rule- Most freshmen, regardless of the o; ir.i »r. expressed hy our president who ac*ed as spokesman for the entire class, consider these rules a^inme.

We came here to get training for a responsible Position, and not to act as stooges for someone no better than ourselves. Thev put it up to us as a question of sportsmanship. Met hinks they would do well to take a few lessons in sportsmanship themselves, and consider our angle of the question. We have enough work to do as it is, without running a lot of foolish errands f\T someone else. Where is there any sport- ing angle to wearn:; a goofy looking green cap? The stock answer, of course, is that it has a psychological benefit. Why wouldn't common sense dictate That the psych-'logical ben»-ht derived would be greater if the fiosh were trva'ed as equals, and giv»-n an euu-.l responsibility in school affairs'.\ Fiosh rules, from a purely psy- chological :-*a:idp'»int. are al. we*, as they may <:»-V'-; •:• an ir.fe: i'.»r:ty cmri-x.

They want a women's basketball team thiit would play out of town teams preliminary to the varsity games. Oswego has made a notable reputation on the court for their male teams but little has been heard of the hidden talent the women possess. A lively female contest before the big games would IM* appreciated by everyone. The girls must do something more than just talk at*nit it though. They must act. ON OTHER CAMPUSES Potsdam Normal \Another fact regard- ing our Student-Faculty money, which as far as I know is not found in other schools, is that faculty members pay the same fee to the Student-Faculty Association Treas- urer as do students.** I niversity of Rochester A talk which is gaining impetus every day is for formation of a Date Bureau such as is now in prog- ress at many colleges and universities. The bureau would be managed like those already in progress, provide a catalog filing system of students interested both on the mens and women's campus. The file would con- tain complete records of the applicant's age, physical characteristics and personal inter- ests.

Mane Antoinette, Mary, Queen of Scots, the Puritan maiden Priscilla. and many others, may be viewed in the Art IV classroom. These different customs of dress are pre- sented in the form of crepe paper aolls after studying the dress customs of the dif- ferent periods of history, under the direc- tion of Orilla Miner, head of the arts de- partment. Choir Beading Choir reading, an increasingly popular means of enjoying poetry in England, has been enjoyed during the past week by stud- ents in Literature i, as presented by Li da S. Penheld, head of the F.nglish depart- ment. This type of reading is organized some- what the same as members of a singing choir, except that they are arrange I according to then speaking, rather than singing voices. Recently the class enjoyed a reading given by Virginia Lowrey of Alfred Noyes' '•Highwayman.\ I nit Projects Members of the general shop are again cooperating with the practice teachers \t tile campus school m the achievement of class room projects, applicable to tran.^poi- ii-ii. iww:. w ivni.'. sons m (marge of the Date Kureau is to match up a pair of fairly well suited appli- cants when a gentleman requests a \date\' lor some function.
