VoL. V. STATE COLLEGE , PA., MAY, 1891_. No. 2 _Eni ’cred _ci _’ &ate College Po _ol 0/f lee as second class _onalter. EVERY college man owes to his Alma Mater a large amount of patriotism , and he should feel it his duty to take part in all those movements which tend to advance her interests. The man who goes throug h a college course with his mind solely on his text-books , and who takes no part in the actions and the movements of his fellow-students, loses, indeed , one half the benefit which is to be derived from a college career. The true college man , while he makes it his purpose to derive the greatest possible benefit from study, at the same time associates freel y with his fellow students and interests himself in their enterprises. The college paper is the exponent of the body of the students , and as such , it is the duty of every college man , who has any college patriotism whatever , to aid in its support. There are in our college to-day, we regret to say, about ...

that when such an opportunity is afforded again , it will be made use of by all the students. - I* * T has probabl y been noticed by our readers , that the staff has completel y cut personal jokes out of the local department , and have devoted that portion of the paper exclusivel y to news. Whether this will meet the approval of every one, we do not know , but we feel confident that it ~ vill raise of the LANCE above the position of a mere medium , as it were, of one person ’s publishing a senseless, and oft times offensive joke on another. It is extremel y edifying sometimes to pick up a college paper , turn to the News Department , and then read a column or so of such remarkable statements as "The Spring has come ; ask D—wh y he went up the fire escape ; where did you get those Plymouth Rocks?" etc. We sincerel y hope that the absence of such a sty le of wit and news, thoug h we can say that in the past we have fortunatel y been but little given to it , will not -be missed from th...

rf HE bi-yearly meetings of the Inter-Collegiate Press Association are occurrences that are productive of much good inasmuch as the united interests of the whole tend to lift the individual to a higher plane. By these meetings the exchange of ideas , the discussiou of common interests , the acquaintance with men of other colleges, the knowled ge ofdifferent methodsacquired , all go to raise the standard of college journalism. The onl y drawback that lies in these meetings is the limited time. - They are entirel y too short for the business that is to be and should be transacted. Where the meeting is limited to a few hours , or but one session , there is too much of a tendency to hurry throug h with the work on hand. There is not the freedom of discussion that would exist if the members felt that when they were talking or seeking some further information upon a certain subject they were not delay ing or post. poning perhaps some more important matter. With more time there would be a ...

leg iate Athletic Association held in New York , when it was proposed by one of the college s toabol . ish it front the list of so-called standard athletics. The contest is exciting, there is no doubt. That it requires skill , there is no doubt. However , when we consider the tremen dous strain which is exerted on a man ’s nerves and muscle , when he has to exert for the space of five or more minutes all the nervous and muscular force in his system , we cannot thin k that as an exercise it is beneficial. And if not beneficial , wh y include it in our list of athletic contests here at P. S. C? It has in it none of the sport or dash of football or base-ball , none of the pleasant healthy cxcrcise of runnin g, vaulting or jump ing. Should we incl u de it in th e list of inter-class contests ? _‘I’he question is well worth considering. * rf HE Business Manager requests that subscribers when chang ing their place of residence woul _d kindl y drop him a note giving their old and new addre...

Journal , has adopted the expedient , profitable to himself , but annoy ing to the other fellows, of en closing a notice with his rejected manuscript , naming some particular publication by which he thinks the orphan mi ght be adopted. His record of these wandering manuscripts for _18 90 show’s that he received 2,280 poems , _1 ,746 stories , and 11 , 179 miscellaneous articles. Of these, onl y one per cent was accepted. Nor has the position and pay of a reporter gone throug h a less evolution. In most newspapers and especiall y thC country press , there are stereotyped forms for announcing the startling array of births , deaths , marriages , visits , receptions , trials and accidents which usuall y fill the columns , and it is an easy matter for one to adopt them and so graduate into a reporter via the roller washing course. In this way the "devil" often becomes the master. Here the collection of news is of vastl y more importance than itsarrangement , and the salary diminishes in ...

candidate must have his especial "organ. " As necessary qualifications for an entrance to the realm of printers ink , I should place above all others observation. It was the constant admonition of a veteran who traine d many a novice in the art reportorial "Whenever you see a group of men talking, find out what they are talking about. Whatever interests mankind interests a reporter. " , The ability of using one ’s eyes and ears will gain a surplus of news in a field from which a novice has gleaned - nothing by simp ly asking "What ’s the news tb-day ?" A certain sn/va/ er in modo must characterize tile gatherer in an interview , whether successful or not , He may have occasion to use his man again. Then he must have ability to place in proper shape the material lie has gathered ; to ‘‘draw it out ’’or "boil it down " at will ; to compose hastily and yet carefully; to write to the point and not scatter his energy, and to give a neat legible manuscri pt to his compositor.

He has such a winning way. He told nse so much about himself: how he had seen me , amid longed for my companionshi p, and should have soug ht it to the grim death , but for one obstacle in the shape of an organization called the ~ oo; an anti calico fanatic society, as they term themselves—how horrible they are _I He told me how he had a brother, who w_.ss a colonel or major or sornethin ~ like that. He cited his br other as the fi gure of chivalry, from which he received his incentives to dare defy the forces of death , and embrace what he calls his haven. 0 he is so nice ! June 14.

ration. Genius itself is no exception to this rule The greatest writers and talkers of all ages have credited all their triump hs to their willingness to work. Macaulay rewrote some of his most fainous passages fifty or sixty times. Daniel Webste r , composed his famous sentence about the British drum-beat , years before it was delivered. The best " extem pora neous ’’ efi_’orts of which the newspapers tell us are the results of midni ght oil. For the average man confidence in the insp iration of the moment is a delusion, In practical life most addresses are called forth by the occasion , and their purpose is consequently very evident , but certain guiding _princi ples should be observed in preparing them. The first of these is that emphasis should be laid not so much upon facts , as upon philosop hy of facts. Take Lincoln ’s address at Gettysburg as an illustration. He mi ght , in those brief but memorable words , have spoken of the details of the greatest of modern battles , but w...

attributed an age of 400 years , and the colors and designs are wonderfull y preserved. We may consider the paintings of the Roman catacombs under three _- heads , naturall y suggested by the positiomi s in which they are found ; first those on the slabs ; second , those on the walls ; amid third , those on the ceilings. The slabs generall y bare onl y the inscri ption , but frequentl y there was painted or carved upon them , also , one or more christian symbols, such as a dove, an anchor , an olivebranch or the monogram of Christ. The figures were commonl y conventionalized , making then ~ purel y symbolical. - On the walls , the paintings were simply 4ecorative frescos with flowing and geometrical lines , and , frequentl y, repetitions of design. A cubiculum is a chamber in which the mensbers of a famil y were buried. The funeral feast was carried on in these chambers , and , being a custom that decended to the Christians from the pagans, the custom was often profaned by heathen l...

But for a stranger to hear it ; what must be the inference lie will draw ? ‘Either the youm sg lad y spoken of is not worth y of respect or t _h e young men speaking so are not gentlemen. " I could but confess that looking at it in that li ght it was rather difficult to excuse the careless use of a young lad y ’s name. As my companion was quite earnest in isis convictions upon this _qu estion , lie was about to continue his remarke whems we were joined by a couple of students , which closed this drift of conversation , and turned it oms to a subject they had just been discussing. * * "I was just remarking to C— the probability of our getting the Athletic grounds fixed up.

affair was one of the most successful yet held , but unfortunatel y the success in a financial way was not so brilliant. The Armory was decorated in the usual manlier. An occasional stack of guns surrounded by flags , drums amid other warlike accoutrem ents made the Drill Hail present a rather military aspect while the display of flowers and college colors gave it quite a handsome appearance. The music for the evening was furnished by Stopper and Fishks’ orchestra of _Wilhiamsport and was rendered more effective than on previous occasions, by its position on an elevated platform in the centre of the floor. The dancing lasted from 8.30 until i o’clock. At about _Io:30 the orchestra gave a concert during which period refreshments were served. LOCALS. H.
