VOL. XVII. BOWLING GREEN STATE COLLEGE, MAY 3, 1933 No. 31.
TWO BEE GEE PROFS AUTHOR NEW BOOKS
Honor has again came to Bowling Green
State College from the publication of two new books written by
professors here, Dr. Clyde Hissong and his wife and Professor E. L.
Dr. Hissong's book is called "An Intro- duction to the Principles
of Teaching." Mrs. Hissong, formerly supervising instructor and
teacher of education in Ohio Wesleyan University, collaborated with
him in writ- ing the book.
The book is concerned not with devices but with principles which do
not change, underlying teaching methods. As the pre- face states,
the "important desideratum in education is a flexible teaching
procedure. It is the underlying thesis of this discus- sion that
teaching procedure which produce effective results cannot be
formalized. They must be determined anew in each situation for the
grouping of all the elements in the situation determines reactions
which can- not in entirety be predicted in advance. This book is
devoted therefore, to the deve- lopment of a point of view or a
philosophic background sufficiently clarified to make possible
intelligent determination of teach- ing technique and thus largely
eliminate teaching by rule and device."
The nine chapters of the book thoroughly cover the ground of the
principles under- lying teaching procedure. The Hissongs have seen
beneath the surface of teaching and have interpreted and evaluated
that of which they write.
The book has already been placed on the list of 1933-1934 Ohio
Teacher's Read- ing Circle book. Besides being an excellent and
valuable treatment of a much dealt- with subject, the book is a
veritable joy to read in its being very well printed and
Professor Moseley's book has been re- viewed in these columns some
time ago. It is called "Other Worlds", and deals with
We quote from the Scientific Book Club Review: "Altho many
elementary books on astronomy are available at present, it would be
difficult to find one which is more con- cisely and attractively
written and which answers so adequately and simply the many
questions of the layman regarding our solor system. Perhaps because
astronomy is a hobby with the author, he presents the sub- ject
with more than ordinary clarity and popular appeal."
Both of these books would amply repay perusal.
POPULAR PROFESSOR ! B. G. SUMMER SCHOOL l WILL NOT BE CLOSED
NEW QUARTET ORGANIZED
We are pleased to announce a new or- ganization on the Campus—the
Bi-Tec Quartet. It's membership is Allen Scott, (Beer) Base; F.
Fry, Baritone (Just a Nameless little Waif); J. Miller, the
(whiskey) 1st tenor and D. (Dr. to you) Mooseman (cold water) 2nd
tenor. Their theme song is "I Ain't Got NoBody". (How will they
ever understand the human ana- tomy). Another favoriate is
"Everytime I Go to Town, the Boys Start Kicking My Cat Around".
They can always be found in front of the dorm or a sorority on warm
nights under that mild and mellow moon.
Gwendolyn, the skeleton of the 18 year old human female, is their
mascot. Their favorite pastime is comparing the Great Mooseman with
Oscar, the Chimpanze.
Their meeting place is the little room next to the Bi. Lab. Here's
the formulae for en- tering: Just say the password.
Dimethylaminozolienenzesodium — sulphon- ate. Then receive the
answer of 50, 421 knocks on the door. The door will fall in and if
you look honest, they'll let you in.
The boys will be glad to sing at weddings, funerals or any other
entertainment for a consideration.
"No serious consideration" is being given the proposal to close
summer schools in state institutions, according to Rep. W. R.
Ditmars of Holmes county.
Thus the finance committee silenced threats to close Bee Gee this
summer, along with other educational institutions, Kent State,
Miami, Ohio U., and Ohio State.
Such a suggestion was made by Rep. Clarence H. Burk, chairman of
the house finance committee. He advocated an "edu- cational
holiday" during the summer, de- claring there is already an over
supply of teachers. In other words, he advocated al- leviating the
present serious unemployment condition by adding to the number who
for three months are unemployed. By way of editorial remark, we
might add that there are evidently some brilliant men guiding the
State of Ohio thru this present crisis that tire men's souls!
Another windy soul has suggested that Bee Gee and other state
institutions be turned into prisons, insane asylums or orphan's
homes, according to a news item in Friday's "Blade". Perhaps it
would be well to quit having educational institutions at all, and
merely supplant them with poor houses where decrepit teachers can
find haven. Evidently there are enough of them to last some
hundreds of years.
A Peek Into a Seven's Letter i
Dearest Mag:- We had the darlingest formal last Sat-
urday night. We gave a dinner dance. First we met at the Sorority
house and then all went over to the Women's Club for dinner. The
tables looked lovely with candles and center pieces in our colors.
Besides, the food was delicious!
Then we all went out to the Women's Gym. It looked quite nice
considering that we weren't allowed much money for decor- ations.
Everyone looked so nice. I just love to see men in gleaming black
and white and women in evening dresses! There surely were some
darling dresses there. And, my dear, the punch was really worth
drink- ing. So, you see, with a good orchestra and all the gang
there including several alum- nae, we all had a marvelous time. I'm
com- ing back next year, too. I wouldn't miss it. See you
Yours, A Seven Sister

has irritated me all week. About the only-
way to give vent to my irritation is thru your paper. So here it
During the discussion in a history class last week, the question
concerning the re-
fusal of France to pay her war debts arose. There is nothing we can
due about it, for one state cannot sue another state. Com- mon
sense tells us that a nation would be idiotic, to go to war in
order to make the debit nation pay the credit nation, espec- ially
for the small sum of $19,000,000. Yet a girl in that class made the
statement that U. S. ought to make France pay that "chic- ken-feed"
even at the expense of another great war.
Such lack of reflective thinking, such short-sightedness as this is
very unbecom- ing of a college student. To this girl $19,- 000,000
seems a large sum of money, altho it is but a "drop in the bucket"
compared to the final cost of a great war. This girl forgets that
it is the men, not the women, who do the fighting, who expose their
vitals to the points of bayonets, who risk being blown to pieces by
bombs, who ex- pose their bodies to all the adverse ele- ments of
nature, and who suffer incon- ceivable hardships. Those who fight
have everything to lose and nothing to win. If they do not lose
their lives in battle, then they spend an unfruitful life in
struggling through a post-war depression.
If the tables could be turned so that the women would have to go to
the front and the men remain to keep the "home fires burning", I'm
sure there would be no such inane remarks coming from our fair sex.
Yes girls, stop and think. It is just such crazy remarks as those
that get nations in war and create public opinion favorable to war.
Weigh the consequences. Ask yourself this question "Does the end
justify the means?"
Dear Editor: Your columns are somewhat given to
complainings from time to time, so here goes with my own
Why must there be so few who are in- terested in things that are
really worth while here at Moronia? Bowling Green seems to have
plenty of functions that merit attendance and support from the
students, but fail to get it.
Also, sad to say, the professors fail mis- erably, on the whole to
attend many of the functions that are interesting. I am not arguing
that they ought to be present just for an "example" but I do say
that they per- haps might be stimulated into doing some- thing
other than the prosaic teaching as- cording to seven year old
lesson plans if they were at these occasions.
Last week, Tuesday evening, Jan Chia- pusso was here and gave us
some splendid music. But there were only a few to hear him. I make
a guess that there must have been a dance or some other very
attractive intellectual feast to take the students away, else they
would have been there, surely.
College ought ideally to be intellectual and aesthetic, but it
can't be so long as not enough attend intellectual or aesthetic
events to warrant bringing them here.
Now that's out of my system, I'll proceed to make up an excuse for
not having my Ed. 62 on time tomorrow.
Yours ever, Disgruntled
An Open Letter to The Entertainment Committee
The concert pianist has crossed our boards, again the auditorium
was filled to about one quarter capacity. And again the question
rises: How long will those in au- thority continue to waste the
public's money on the tommyrot and rubbish that has been offered us
on the so-called "Lec- ture-Course" program? Of the past dozen
numbers, there has been but one really de- cent lecture, that of
John Langdon-Davies, (and how that was ever allowed to slip through
is still an unsolved mystery). In the light of conditions existing
in the world today, one would think that the Social Com- mittee
would strive to bring before us, com- petent speakers to give
enlightened views on current events. Any thinking person knows that
with even the pretence of a sensible program, the hall would be
jammed to the doors with eager, serious-minded students.
Of course, ninety per cent of the college, faculty and students
both, don't care a tinker's dam for all the concert violinists,
basso profundos, etc., on this side of Hades. What is needed is a
series of honest, thought provoking lectures on modern problems in
economics, morality, politics, and religion. (Our faculty members
could give them if they weren't afraid of their shadows, and were
given half a chance).
The speeches on India and China were a step in the right direction.

way, all that furore about those speakers vas just so much bunk, if
college-students cin't bear to hear the other side of a ques- tion,
they are not worthy of the name.) But why go so far afield? Why
worry about Hitler, and Gandhi and Manchuria? We 1 ave enough
problems here at home, with cur banks failing, our industries lying
stagnant, and our farms being sold on the ruction block. With
unemployment and hunger rife throughout the land, an ap- palling
crime wave in our cities, and crunkeness and beer staging a
comeback, f.nd with growing economic and social evils en every hand
(as the Scottsboro trial, the hank-fraud exposures, etc.), we have
no lack of subject-material.
And then the music, undoubtedly fully three-fourths of the school
would rather listen to the college band than to any or all cf the
musical numbers so far presented. Why not bring down some peppy
dance orchestra from Toledo, with snappy melo- dies, and dreamy
waltzes, and give the student-body what they desire? And if, you
doubt that desire, I challenge you to con- duct a questionnaire to
determine the wishes of the college-students. I'm willing to gam-
ble my false-teeth to a croquet ball that the results would back me
up to the letter. Yours, for a real, live, entertaining "Lec-
ture-Course" next year.
COLLEGE MUSIC DEPARTMENT WILL ASSIST IN SCHOOL OPERA
Several members of the College Music Department will assist in the
specially sel- ected orchestra which is to accompany the High
School production of "Trial by Jury" Tuesday evening, May 2. The
program is to be given in the Senior High School
auditorium and is scheduled to begin at 8:00 o'clock.
Among those who will play in the ac- companying orchestra are:
Sidney Baron, Joe Miller, Eugene Witters, Gordon Mumaw and D. D.
Armstrong alumnus of the col- lege and present director of
Instrumental Music in the schools. The singing and dramatics of the
show will be under the direction of Roy V. Hilty, Supervisor of
Vocal Music in the schools.
It is expected that many college students will avail themselves of
this opportunity to see and hear a splendid example of the Gilbert
and Sullivan Opera Series. The lines are catchy; the music is the
sort that sends people into the streets whistling and humming the
tunes; and the dramatic situation is sufficiently humorous to fur-
nish laughs for weeks to come.
Admission will be charged at the door, fifteen cents for adults and
ten cents for children. The music teachers and adminis- tration of
the Bowling Green Schools are issuing a cordial invitation to the
college faculty and students to enjoy this musical show with
