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
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.

of 11:10 Program
Governor Herbert H. Lehman will
address this morning's assembly,
according to the announcement
made by Warren I. Densmore, '38,
president of the student association
and member of Myskania.
In consenting to address this
morning's assembly Governor Lehman was forced to leave innumerable
bills, Including several pertaining to
education, that are awaiting his
signature,
Since his visit to State college
several years ago Lehman has maintained an active interest in the college. Shortly after the Constitutional Assembly was formed last fall,
Governor Lehman sent a letter to
Speaker Leonard Friedlander congratulating him with the hope that
the good work would continue until
the new constitution is put before
the general public this fall.
Governor Lehman came into national prominence in 1928 when he
was elected lieutenant governor of
New York state by a plurality vote
of 14,000. Since that time the public
has shown their confidence in his
honesty and ability as an administrator. In 1930 he received a plurality vote of 505,000. In 1932 Lehman
was elected to the governorship of
New York state with the enormous i
plurality vote of 849,000 and was reelected in 1934 by a vote of 808,089.
In 193G he was reelected to the governorship for the third time.
During the presidential campaign
of 1928, Lehman was chairman of
toe Finance Committee of the
Democratic National Committee.
Recently Lehman has achieved
nation-wide prominence, not only as
governor of the state, but through
his participation and activity In
national issues,
After the address by Governor
Lehman there will be revotes on
N. S. F. A. delegates. As a result of
last week's voting, Dunton Tynan
was elected delegate, and there will
be revotes on the names of Christine
Ades and John Edge.

However, to understand the importance of this conference, we must
first obtain an Intelligent knowledge
of the federation and Us purposes,
ideals and activities. What is the
N. S. F. A,? It is, In its own words,
"a service organization for student
councils and students; a clearing
house for Information of value and
interest to students; a forum of expression of student opinion; and a
medium of contact between America
at large, and Ihe American campuses.
What are its ideals? It strives for
a spirit of cooperation among students of the United States; the
development of Initiative in Intelligent discussion of campus, national
and international problems and the
vigorous and effective expression of
that initiative; and the fostering of
universal understanding toward international peace.
When did the N. S. F. A. begin?
It was begun in 1925 after the Student World Court conference at
Princeton University. Today il has
a membership of 125 colleges all over
the country,
The "Weekly Reporter," official
mouthpiece of the N. S. F. A. is in

would remove the one hazard which might result In
a bad accident to some of the members of the student
body, perhaps, any day now.
ISSUE EDITOR
For Aspiring Stagehands
Last Friday in assembly, an accident
occurred which might very well have been
both serious and painful. It seems that
some innocent bystander tampered with
the lights in such a way that not only was
the lighting throughout the performance
obscured but a piece of the apparatus fell
and hit a member of the audience.
Our complaints regarding the matter
are twofold. In the first place, it was pure
luck that the screening fell in such a way
that the student was not seriously hurt. In
the second place, we feel that the people
who are members of the stagecraft class are
expert enough to be able to arrange the
equipment unaided.
We do not wish to dampen the enthusiasm of the aspiring stagehand, but we do
suggest that if he is sufficiently interested
in the drama, he register in the English 13
course, thereby protecting not only valuable stage equipment, but the welfare of
the assembly.
A University of New York?
We note with interest that our own Constitution assembly has gone on record as
favoring the establishing of a tuition-free
university for New York State. A realization of this educational dream would be
ideal, we admit, and yet we are forced to
consider the possible results with apprehension.
Dr. Robert Hutchinson, president of
Chicago university, says that "to deprive
anyone who has an aptitude and a desire
for more education because his parents can
not afford to give him one is to commit an
offense not only against the individual, but
against society." We agree with the sentiment but is the state university the answer
to this problem 7 The tremendous cost of
maintaining a university would necessarily
limit the number of people who could be
admitted. Since scholastic averages are
usually used as a basis for entrance, we
should conclude that the registration would
include the most intelligent students and
not the most needy. It is the same principle
upon which our state scholarships are
based, and wo believe that it Is a faulty
premise,
Administrative problems would certainly
result, including obtaining a sufficiently
large appropriation, and the centralization
of those schools already maintained in
whole or in part by the state.
We review the proposal with doubta and
questions, and yet we cannot help but admit
that we favor the plan, and would be among
the first to further its realization.

The next thing that we came upon were the rickety and curving stairs that lead up to the library
from the bottom of Draper hall. During the winter
months several accidents have occurred In which a
few men and women have received scratches and
bruises, resulting from the slippery stairs.
We offer three solutions to the problem. Perhaps
some rubber padding over the steps might prevent
the accidents. Or another hand railing would be a
good help in climbing up and down stairs. Another
suggestion would be to reconstruct an entire new entrance to the library or to block off the -present entrance.
*
+ * * *
Lastly, we wish to call to the attention of the
administration, the poor lighting facilities in Husted
hall. The chemistry department, especially, Is very
poorly lighted. Students have to squint and crane
their necks in order to see the work on the blackboard. There are many other rooms in the school
which need better lighting facilities. We have one
suggestion to offer and that Is the putting of brighter
lights or a better lighting system In these rooms.
« # * * *
On behalf of the student body we take this opportunity of letting the college and certain students
know about some of the hazards which can be easily
and quickly Improved. Let us close with an apt quotation: "An ounce of prevention Is worth a pound of
ewe."
Personal
Viewpoints
We're sorry about last week
but the aura of spring swept into
the open window and we opened
the door and went out into the
great outdoors.
But we must write this column
and so we proceed with the belief
that big dances at State college
are on trial. The courtroom will
be the Aurania club; the witnesses, those persons who like to
dance; the facts, the results of
Soiree; the jury, committees for
future formals here; the issue,
big name bands versus small
ones.
It seems so odd that just a
little over one year ago this
movement toward bigger bands
commenced when senior hop
featured Harry Reser. Today only a year and a half have passed
and State has witnessed such top
orks as Berigan, Dailey, Coburn,
Hopkins, and Haymes. It is this
tradition to die? Do the stuuents
at State wish to return to the
days when unknowns such as
Valjean and Murphy and all the
rest whom we refuse to mention
because we have either forgotten
or we do not wish to recall,
reigned? Do we want dances
that are attended only because
of the desire to attend our class
dance?
We raise these questions
because the financial results of
Prom were not too encouraging
to those Sophs arranging Soiree.
The student body must decide
the question and we are certain
that the outcome of Soiree will
carry great weight with dance
committees in the future.
It's up to you, you have a
privilege to hear one of the
greatest swing aggregations In
the country. You do not need
to take my word for that statement. Listen to what bands
Paul Douglas compares Artie
Shaw's ork to: "Almost without
exception, every good swing outfit in the country is led by a
ranking instrumentalist:—Bunny
Berigan, Artie Shaw, Jimmy
Dorsey, Red Norvo, Adrian Rollini, Duke Ellington, Fats Waller,
Louis Armstrong." This is an
excerpt from the April issue of
Stage and it's not bad company
for our sauve signior of the
slapstick to be associated with.
Downbeat ranks this orchestra as one of the smoothest of
the newest swing groups and
rave about the way they swing
out. The Musicians Poll shows
that Shaw is ranked second only
to Goodman on the licorice stick.
This is a reputation that few
bands coming to State can equal.
If this dance goes in the red as
Prom did, then we fear that we'll
trot around the next few years
to unknown groups of musicians.
Maybe the records in the Commons do not appeal to you and
we feel that these are not the
best selections that the 'vie' committee could have made. If you
really wish an opus of swing
listen to Shaw on his own composition Monsoon.
To say a last word why don't
you dig down into that old sock
and come around and have a
really good time, as well as making good dances possible In the
fulure.

Congratulations to Miss Hall for
a capably directed and well-chosen
assembly play. We are sorry that
she could not see the final performance of her own play,
One thing we have assimilated
during our three and some years'
stay at State is a tendency toward
jotting, so let us forego the discursive method and mention our comments in a more common form.
Sets—Good. Hurrah for the disappearance of the "old lady's dress,"
Did we recognize our favorite (?)
gold-fringed lamp?—Lighting—foul!
Advancers should take time out for
light rehearsals.
Having "hailed from the sticks,"
we felt quite at home during the
performance, the characters were so
typical of the old home town. Could
see Miss Lynch hanging over the
back fence for a little chat with
next-door neighbor. She played her
role beautifully, with especially good
mouth expressions,
Miss Sinovoy gave her usual top
performance—never let It be said
that she doesn't make us believe in
her!
Mr. Arthur wasn't convincingly
hen-pecked. He held his interpretation of the character fairly well,
but we wish he had made us feel
with him.
Mr. Walsh gave us the impression
of being a happy-go-lucky twentyfive year old, and brought in too
much of his own personality. Scares
well, 'tho.'
Mr. Leese was a fine caricature of
what we have come to recognize as
the typed "grandpa from them thar
hills," especially in his voice. We
appreciated him, however.
Felicitations to the audience! But

Seek Freshman Banner
Clad in dungarees, sweatshirts
and former, cast-off Easter bonnets, six dusty, grimy but grimly
determined sophomores pertly
pried their way into the hidden
(?) recesses of N E W S office last
Tuesday night. Rivalry is here

few flashlights as their guides,
intently searching for t h a t mystical might of the freshman, the
frosh banner. Tlie aggregation,
headed by the m a n u n d e r the
black sombrero, namely, Walt
Simmons, was so i n t e n t upon
their quest t h a t not even K o walsky's red-striped socks escaped their most assiduous investigation.
