REQUESTS SIMPLICITY IN SOCIAL FUNCTIONS President Holland Issues Order That Expenses of Student Entertain ments Must Do Kept Within Conservative Limits President Holland has Issued the following letter to all organized groups of the State College: To Organized Groups at the State College of Washington: The students of th.- State College of Washington have been known throughout the Northwest as young men and women of democratic spirit, co-operating in all things having to do with college citizenship and tak ing their studies seriously in order to prepare themselves for lives of usefulness,^ We have cause to be proud of this reputation and spirit Last year 83 per cent of the young men attending the State College earned from one-fourth to all of their expenses. Nearly the same proportion of young women attend ing the State College earned part or all the money that, they spent last year while in attendance here. This Indicates that our young men and women are not afraid of work; that they are willing to do anything to enable them to continue their education. All the positions as waiters in the college dining halls are filled by men and women stu dents. Many positions on the col lege farm and in the janitorial stall' are taken each year by college men. Furthermore, many of the young men and women working on the campus stand best in scholarship and many of them are leaders ii. stu dent activities. This is as it should be and all of us hope that no one but a worthy young man or woman will ever be able to win a place of leadership in our college activities. My attention has been called to one tendency which, if not checked, will do great harm. I reter to the formal parties given each year by our fraternities and sororities. 1 have been informed that the cost of music for one of these evenings has been from $30 to $10. Also, I have been told that the 'favors'' for some of the parties have cost from one to three dollars for each person giving the party. No Student working his way through college can afford to make such expenditures. In addi tion, 1 am sure many parents who are making great sacrifices to send their eons and daughters to the State College would not approve of such extravagances. Finally, and most important of all, such lavish waste of money is contrary to the demo cratic spirit of the State College. 1 realize that it can be argued that these expenditures are considerably less than those made in some other institutions of the west. Such a*gu ment, you will agree with me, is not conclusive: for in many ways the State College has not been and does not intend to be an abject follower of custom, especially when such cus tom is in violation of our democratic spirit. Today there is a demand for economy and. from the beginning of our history, the democratic spirit of the State College has fostered sim plicity of fife it is necessary for us to insist that no formal party given from now on shall^cost more than $2.50 for each person present, and that no one In dividual shall pay more than $5. In addition, the lavish amount of time which has been spent in the past on the decorations of the reception halls, should very properly be de voted to college studies. Further more, the so-called "informal" par ties and receptions shall be limited to $1 for each person present and no Individual shall pay more than $2. This is practically an executive, order sent out from the president's office. We may say. however, that it is contrary to State College spirit to Consider it necessary to lay down rules of this character. In the piflfft it has been sufficient for us simply to point out what we believed was best, and the students of the State College have at once tried to carry out the spirit of the suggestions. 1 am sure that the proposed limita tions will be observed by every or ganized group on the college campus. You, of course, know that we are now keeping a careful record of the scholarship of each organized group. We are doing this in an attempt to emphasize those things for which the tax payers established the State Col lege of Washington. Let us go for ward this year with the determina tion to make the most of our oppor tunities in order that the people of the state will continue to give us adequate support tor our greatest needs. Let us maintain our reputa tion for having a democratic institu tion that turns out competent no and women who are not afraid to work and who desire to maintain a .social life that Is both genuine and simple in character. Very sincerely yours. EC 0. HOLLAND, President. STUDENTS APPRECIATE EFFORTS OF CITIZENS That the students of the State Col lege are highly appreciative of the services rendered by Pullman citi /ens when the young men and young women arrived in Pullman is indi cated by the many words of com mendation spoken by the newcomers. George H. Watt, chairman of the chamber of commerce committee which had charge of the free auto mobile service, reports that there were plenty of autos available except at the noon train Sunday, when some of the drivers were obliged to make, two or more trips A serious mixup in the baggage business was report ed by Chairman Watt, who stated that some students were unable to locate their baggage for four days after the checks had been given to private Individuals. The local trans fer agencies handled their part of the business in an excellent manner, the reports of delays and mixups all being traced to temporary delivery services. The chamber of commerce at the Tuesday meeting extended a vote of thanks to Chairman Watt, Allen Oliver, Robert Neill, Thos. Martin and all others who assisted in the reception program. SAN FRANCISCO MUSIC HEARD IN PULLMAN Sound Waves Convey Music 1)00 Miles Through Wireless Tele phone Concerts Heard Here Thrice Weekly After being conveyed by sound waves some '.mil miles through the air, musical concerts rendered in San Francisco are heard by Pullman people who visit the wireless station of Hugh E. Allen, on State street, every Monday, Thursday and Satur day evenings. On those nights, be tween the hours of 8:00 and 9:00, the experimental wireless telephone station of the Leo M. Mayberg Elec trical Co., located at the Fairmont hotel, San Francisco, send out base ball, weather and news reports which are followed by a long musical pro gram. These concerts have been re ceived throughout the summer at the local wireless station and "come in" so loud and clear that they can be easily distinguished at a distance of from It) to 1.", feet from the tele phones. The records played at the phonograph concerts are the latest popular pieces and are furnished by the Sherman-Clay Music House of San Francisco. "The reception of the Mayberg musical concert is no freak," said the Pullman wireless enthusiast, "and establishes no record, as was the belief of E. V. Olson of Spokane, but is a feat of common occurrence. The May berg station of San Fran cisco is doing remarkable work in covering the distance to Pullman, about 900 miles, using only 10 watts of power, or about one-eighth the power consumed by an ordinary elec tric light bulb. "During the concert the night of September 12 Mr. Mayberg Intro duced a few selections by a famous Italian opera singer and a noted pianist rendered a selection. The BOngS were very clear, every syllable being as distinct as though the selec tions were rendered in the receiving room, nearly 1000 miles distant from the musicians." The station operated by the Pull man young man is claimed by wire leas experts to he one of the most complete and efficient amateur out fits in the Northwest, with two tele phone receiving sets as well as the complete sending and receiving sets for code messages. During the past few months Mr. Allen has communi cated by wireless with amateur oper ators in all parts of the west and middle west. Much of the equip ment is of his. own manufacture.
