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

It seems t h a t the s t u d e n t association is not a p p r e ciative of the efforts of members of its body. If last
week's assembly is indicative of the way S t a t e students
conduct themselves at assembly programs, the Advanced Dramatics class should n o t prcduce any of its
plays before such a n inconsiderate audience, but, instead, should present t h e m before people who are a t
least cognizant of the work a n d effort t h a t goes into
these performances.
T h e least t h a t we could do was to be quiet and
give our best a t t e n t i o n to the actors who were striving
to put across a difficult play in spite of many adverse
circumstances. Do you think the talking and snickering in the assembly during the lines encouraged the
actors to give the best they h a d ? It h a d just the
opposite effect. It tended to discourage their performance because the students belittled their art. It
takes a long time, with much rehearsing, to r e m e m ber your lines, and, after that, a great deal of time
is spent acting out the play itself. It seems t h a t the
association should take a course on "How to behave
in company." •

1. I'd like to have you abolish t h e

But Not A Coup d'Etat
S t u d e n t council topples I Ten
people injured! Yes, it is true.
T h e biggest accident in S t a t e
college's history occurred last
Tuesday night when the S t u d e n t
council cabinet crumpled to the
floor in t h e NHWS office while
some of those fantastic "jitterbugs" were d e m o n s t r a t i n g their
skill with t h e aid of Benny
Goodman's swing music.
Blood a n d gory, emaciated
bodies were strewn over t h e
floor a n d n e a r the doors. Broken
bones, broken spines, bruises and
even scratches were sustained in
the accident. W h e n t h e a m b u lance arrived to take the victims
to the hospital, there was on
h a n d t h e largest a t t e n d a n c e a t
any public function t h a t ever occured at this institution,
B u t folks, don't let us fool
you. T h e cabinet did really
topple over a n d several people
who were leaning on the cabinet
received a few bruises. Anything
can h a p p e n in t h e activities
office these days. So when you
come there for loitering purposes, beware!
Bad luck follows in your footsteps.
