THE OBWKGONIAN DEAN'S CONFERENCE ON EXTRA ACTIVITIES Student scholarship in relation to extra- curricular activities and the question of student housing were discussed at the con- ference for deans of New York state which was attended by Mrs. Isabelle K. Hart. Oswego's dean of women, at the Hotel Roosevelt in New York city. Scholarship should come before the extra- curricular activities of a student was the opinion expressed by Dr. Herman Cooper of the state department of Education. \If the student can maintain a high standard of scholarship and find time for extra- curricular activities he may combine the two,\ he said in concluding his talk on the subject. The state has revised the housing require- ments for normal schools. The changes, nowever, do not affect Oswego Normal •rhool as much as other normals because <>f the large number of sorority and fra- ternity houses at the other schools. A live i«>ue at the conference was the growing remand for dormitories. Dr. Cooper said •n;tt th* Board of Regents does not supply funds for dormitories, but they will grant f-.:nds to alumni associations, however, for ••t» : erection of buildings on state property. A: a luncheon, held in connection with the >:iference. the question of standards for - «Mal equipment of the prospective t» acher w.-i- discussed. It was generally believed i v present standards were far below •. •; r they should be. This is a challenge to the students of v >>\vego Normal school,\ said Mrs. Hart. \It i.- :he duty of every student to analyze our i\!ieiencies and see that we. at least, are • classed in this large group.\ SIKSTA Although the Prof's dry monologue Kerps me completely in a fog. I strive to listen more attent'ly As subtle Morpheus beckons gently; Until some most unpleasant cuss •'»•••> up perversely to discuss. That after long and profound thought. Ht s found that something's wrongly t aught. And starts a hopeless argument 1'ntil the hour is nearly spent. 'Tis then to Morpheus I surrender. And seeking him as my defender, I undisturbed contently snore. Till someone's stopped that awful bore. GEORGE BERTSCH.
