Mrs. Poletti Addresses
Will Provide Rhythm
Group on Government
for Spring Event
Last Wednesday, Mrs. Charles
Poletti, wife of the Lieutenant
Governor of New York state, addressed a group of State college
students In the Lounge of Richardson hall. Her topic was a discussion of the workings of our
state and national governments.
She was sponsored by the Lounge
committee and Miss Helen Moreland, dean of students..
Mrs. Poletti talked informally
for about a half hour, and then
entertained questions from the
students present. She spent
some time in reviewing briefly
the meaning of the word, democracy. She then explained the
workings of our state legislature,
and showed a copy of the legislative index, a booklet published
weekly, showing current legislation. Some of her talk was centered around pressure groups, and
their influence in legislatures.
