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

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.

A state university where students
of New York state might attend a
liberal arts college, "free of tuition
charge," was pushed one step farther
toward a reality when the Constitutional Assembly voted at its regular
weekly session, Tuesday, to favor the
resolution calling for the "inclusion
In the state constitution of a provision for a state maintained university."
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
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,

to Richard Lonsdale, '39.
