The one last Friday night was certainly proof of the fact that students will turn out to an informal, inexpensive dance, and give it their whole - hearted support. Ticket sales totaled 298; the sophs lead the list with 81; the juniors rank second with 61, then come the frosh with 55, the seniors with 42, the grads with 18, and outsiders bought 41. High ticket-sellers were Virginia McDermott and Arnold Ellerin, freshmen, who lead with sales of 54 and 41 respectively. The net profit on the dance was $26.31, of which $25.00 went to the victrola committee; the remaining $1.31 was divided among the four classes.

Following was a debate on the majority report of the hearing committee which opposed the resolution on the grounds that there was no need for the proposed institution because of the policy of state aid existing at the present time, and because it is "impracticable on financial grounds." The majority, led by Virginia Wegener, '39, offered as a substitute the doubling of the number and stipend of state scholarships. Irregardless of the majority arguments, the minority report, offered by Norman Levy and Edward Trost, freshmen, was given approval by the college group. In stating the case for the state university, Levy said, "Many high school graduates today, who should go Into higher education cannot do so merely for financial reasons. In a recent study in New York State, 44 percent of the high school students questioned were uncertain whether they would attend college; ninety percent of these students listed financial reasons as the deterring factor." Following discussion of I he resolution, a motion calling for separate, "article by article," consideration or all controversial amendments to the constitution when it is voted on in the November referendum was introduced. This was proposed to prevent a recurrence of the fate of the 1915 constitution which was killed because of several controversial issues contained in the document which was submitted as a whole for approval, rather than article-by-article. Speaker Leonard Friedlander, '39, announced the appointment of Beatrice Shufelt, '40, as assistant clerk to Richard Lonsdale, '39. STATE COLLEGE FOR T E A C H E R S , ALHANY, N .
