Student Affairs Test
Good Citizenship
The administration rule that students must
have paid student tax and class dues in order to
secure the services of the Appointment bureau
should put an end to a condition long lamented
by the activities and the extra-class conscious
students of State college. No longer should
student activities be forced to cut their programs because of the failure of disinterested
students to pay for them.
The fairness of the new ruling will not be contested by those who realize that interest in the
affairs of one's community is a prime requisite
of a teacher. Extra-class affairs are the student's community life for four years, and there
is no reason why the record of one's support of
them should not be available to principals looking for teachers. One's mark in citizenship is
certainly of as much weight as one's mark
in subject matter or professional educational
The ruling should have a dual effect, both
increasing participation in student, affairs and
making these affairs able to run on a full time
The Last Straw
Scooters, paper airplanes, or anything else you
wish to call them, should be the main topic of
conversation of every State college student.
If you were one of Hie few who failed to notice
the utterly naive and disgustingly juvenile action of some of your fellow students in their
form of amusement at the splendid elementary
class production, it should be called In your
attention at once.
This is tin; second time that this outrage has
taken place in I'uge hall. People paid good
money for the reserved seats, and what do they
got during the intermission '/ The sense of humor
of the paper airplane enthusiasts drives them to
hurl their childish toys down upon the beads of
those below the balcony.
State college as a professional training school
cannot afford In obtain the reputation which
such action would presuppose, When the opportunity affords itself for us lo present entertainment of the caliber of this production, it's a
erime that the name of the school must be subjected to ridicule.
There is one way to prevent repetition, united
Student censorship. Isn't it enough that the
irnbeeilic laugh of some who cannot respect the
efforts of our actors should disrupt plays? This,
together with the airplane episodes, is about the
last straw.
First of all, and most important, wha, h-'ions does
this commission take care of? Doe., it
ply only to
student association elections, or to election
i all organizations, or to elections of elass officers? If to all of
these, it is a big undertaking. If only to the student
association, it seems a reasonable project. Inasmuch as
Myskania, senior honorary society, supervises all class
elections, these are automatically ruled out.
Now, then, what are the powers of this commission?
Ono definite duty is given: the supervision of assembly
programs at which nominating speeches are given. Ono
vague duty is mentioned: the regulation and supervision of pro-voting activities. We d o n ' t quite know
what this moans. Are these one and the same thing?
What are the "pro-voting a c t i v i t i e s " ? And are these
the only duties? If so, Student Council should care for
them adequately. It doesn 't seem quite reasonable to
spend so much thought and effort on such minor matters.
Perhaps a little elucidation would help here. We'd
like it.
And, just as a point of parliamentary procedure, does
the student association wish to give to five of its moriibers, be they the most honorable of its number, such
powers, so indefinitely stated, which they can veto only
by the exercise of a two-thirds vote?
Would not n
majority bo sufficient? A vote of two-thirds is a thing
seldom required, and only in matters of great importance.
Such acts as the reversal of the decision of tho chair,
tho reconsideration of a motion, or an amendment to
the constitution rightly require this vote.
As wo said before, we're worried. There is undoubtedly amplo reason for the existence of this commission.
There is, of course, some reason for the committee's
report. But what is it? We hope it is explained.
Have you read Yang and Yin, by Alice Tisdalo

A superficial perusal of the results
of S t a t e ' s basketball efforts so far
this season would produce no adm i r a t o r y exclamations from one unacquainted with things hereabouts.
But we who like to refer to ourselves a s homesters can find much
to salvage from what might be
termed the wreckage.
Games won to date are few, we
grant. Norwicli and Toronto alone
have fallen before the sword of the
Minervitcs. 'flic Maple Leafs, our
second international opponent of the
season, had much more scoring success against Union than against us.
And our defeat of Norwich was their
initial setback of the year.
Our first three games resulted in
defeat. RPI, Western Ontario, and
Brooklyn Poly slapped us down by
narrow margins.
Each of these
games has been classified under the
head " should have won," and possibly righteously so. Yet these were
far from weak opponents. RPI defeated Williams, Brooklyn Poly defeated RPI by a larger score than
t h a t by which they defeated us, and
Western Ontario—well, they gave
Canisius a good run.

Their baskets hail a certain lure for
a ball from their Mngertips. They
moved away from a late-gtunu 28all knotted count to a 42-31 victory.
Against Norwich, the next night, was
garnered the first, win of the season,
a 2li-l 7 victory.

the first half and State won the

the game on points. Toronto, after

against us. Their offense was much
less effective in the game with us
than in their contest with the
Schenectady college.

Hobart Wins By Single Goal;
Niagara, Buffalo Top State
By Wide Margins
Tho State college basket tossera
journeyed into tho land of the setting sun last weekend to engage the
cage teams representing Niagara,
Buffalo State, and Hobart, major
opponents all. As a result of an accident while enrouto gameward, and
injuries received in rough contests,
a bruised and battered team took the
lloor for the Teachers against each
of tho enemy squads.
The Niagaru university
Eagles, always power-packed, and
conquerors of the Instructors in a
previous game, felled the State live
by a 44^-24 count.
The would-be
teachers from the other extremity of
the state, the Buffalo State Bisons,
showed the way tho night of Friday,
February 5, by a 40-27 score. The
next night, Hobart, after assuming
a big lead during the initial half,
squeezed out a narrow victory, 32-30.
The State squad barely arrived in
time for the Niagara game. They
took the court fresh from an accident, but were generously accorded
tho waiving of all substitution and
time-out rules by the home team.
Tho halfway tally was 19-9, in
Niagaru's favor, which score represented a creditable showing on the
purt of State. In the second half,
the Roaring Cataracts added another
ten points to their margin, bringing
the score to 44-24 at tho final
whistle. Byrnes was high man for
State with seven points, while the
Niagara point-getting was divided.
The Buffalo Teachers emerged victorious in the second contest of the
tour, a rough encounter. The flour
city youths led all the way, 17-9 at
the half and 40-27 at the closing
Bancroft and Byrnes each
netted seven points for State, while
Witmeyer was tops for Buffalo with
The Hobart game produced the
closest battle of the invasion, Hobart managing to eke out a two-point
win after seeing its big first half
advantage taken away.
State was
without spirit during the primary
cliukker, sinking only two field baskets and three foul shots for a total
of seven points as arrayed against
twenty for Hobart. Toward the end
of the second half, State came within
a point of the Genovnns at 29-28.
Hobart then tallied a field basket
and foul shot, which Tom Ryan's
field goal failed to match.
