Whether it was the pre-holiday spirit or Just State college's
charitable nature, the student
body certainly supported the
Red Cross drive. Now, once
again the clarion call for aid
to a very worthy cause is heard.
As we happily approach our
Christmas recess with thoughts
of peace on earth, good will to
men, we can not disregard the
cry to "Fight Tuberculosis."
Beginning next Monday, Alpha Epsilon Phi sorority will
hold their annual sale of Christmas seals at a table near the
annex. Frieda Kurkhill, '39, has
charge.
It Is hoped that the students
will greet this sale with as much
enthusiasm as they did that of
the Red Cross. Remember everytime you lick a seal, you're "licking" the tubercular germ.

Freshman Quintet to Meet
with Trojan Yearlings
in Preliminaries
Tomorrow night a rivalry that began way back in 1916 will come to
a head again when Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute of Troy sends its
varsity squad against State on the
Engineer's new court.
The court rivalry between State
and R.P.I, did not run steadily
through the years for there was a
long break in basketball relations
between 1921 and 1935. However, It
runs just as strongly and deeply.
Separated by a mere few miles,
State and R.P.I, men have been at
dagger points over everything from
basketball to sorority dates.
Last year the squads met in two
bitter struggles. In the first, the
Engineers caught State on a hot
evening and succumbed to the tune
of 30-28. R.P.I, came to State for
the second encounter confident of
victory, because State had lost five
straight games. However, our squad
had a tremendous reversal of form
and swept the Trojans from the
court with a terrific barrage of
points that netted a total of fiftyseven counts to twenty-eight for
R.P.I.
U.P.I. Loses Veterans
Prom the outfit that dropped two
to our lads last year, Ward and
Ahlefeld have been taken by graduation. These two men will be sorely missed, but Coach Ed Donald has
six lettermen returning to form the
nucleus of this year's squad. Includefl among these players is Chris
Fassioli, a .speedy and reliable man
who will lead the Engineers on the
court. Fa/.ioli was a thorn in Slate's
side last year and is Lhe man to
watch tomorrow. Ludke, Preston,
Scholz, Henry, and Lomas complete
the list of Troy vets. The rest of
the squad will bo composed of Carman, Coleman, Knuobel, Lomas,
Mueller, Nadler, Nugent, Wicko,
Winkler, and Zirkuly. Seven of these
stalwarts have reached the six-loot
mark so that the squad will have
plenty of altitude. Coach Donalu
