The Crime of 39
I Dr. Robert
Rienow,
instructor
in social
studies, who appeared before the student assembly last Friday, has sent this open letter to the
NKWH to put all the facts before the student body.
It is hoped that this information
will be used
by the students
who contact their
legislators
tonight.)
To the Editor of the STATU COLLEQK NEWS:
We, the faculty, students and administration, of
State college are dumbfounded.
For without notice,
without discussion, and without open hearing the political forces of the state stand menacingly brandishing
their budget-cutting axes which threaten to dislodge
the supporting beams of our institution.
in order
to make
certain
Here's why:
We who have been studying at State for the past
four years know all too well that we are understaffed,
even no v. The ratio of students-to-facuity is one to
seventeen, whereas, under the proposed reduction the
ratio would be one to twenty-three. With almost no
exceptions, the faculty now are working to capacity,
some carrying as many as twenty hours of classes
each week. (Students on the Dean's List are allowed
a maximum of eighteen hours, with special permission.) Picture the condition that would exist should
the budget reduction be effected.
For years, the NEWS has been campaigning for
better conditions for studying, better lighting, more
equipment, special courses, and countless necessary
repairs. A reduction of $5,100 is to be made In our
maintenance fund under the proposed budget. It is
highly evident that next year any suggestion of repairs,
or the amelioration of conditions, would be "out of
the question" If $5,100 is "lopped off" the maintenance
fund.

"The Defense Rests"
Today in the Legislature of the state will be decided the future of this college, not only for next
year, but for all the years to follow. We of the
student body rest, temporarily at least, upon the
action we have taken. We can do little but wait
for the decision that our representatives will make,
and we are quite content to accept that decision,
feeling that we have stated our case as thoroughly
and as intelligently as befits a group of citizens of
the state.
Let us recapitulate briefly. O u r stand has been
one prompted by self defense; we have asked nothing that has not previously been ours. We have
sought no increases, satisfied that our school was
offering us more than a fair chance for a superior
education. We have merely attempted to maintain
that high standard which we have achieved through
years of effort.
Our motives have not been entirely selfish. We
have more than an apathetic regard for the future
of the secondary schools in which we will teach, and
for the students who will take our places here. We,
convinced that education is a basic principle of any
country, have attempted to set forth the disastrous
results of such a budget cut to State college.
Our demands have not been exorbitant. As
future citizens, we uphold the principle of economy,
and we commend the efforts of the legislators to
lighten the load of the overburdened tax-payer.
However, we sincerely believe that such economy
should be planned as scientifically as is possible.
Following this principle, we would welcome an investigation of our own college as conclusive proof
of its value. We are certain that such an investigation would show the vital necessity of retaining
every member of the faculty, and every cent of the
maintenance fund.
As a protest, it was nothing new and different;
but as a student protest, organized, directed, and
carried out by students it was of tremendous importance. It was an opportunity seldom offered to
young voters, an opportunity to assert our prerogative and to make our needs felt. It should serve us
in the future in good stead, for we have come face
to face with the machinery of government, and we
have come out wiser and more.interested citizens.
We have asserted our ideas as citizens of a great
state, and they have been received as such. We
can only, then, as citizens of that same state, place
our trust unci respect in the men chosen to represent us, and await their answer.
Conversation With An Idiot
.. C o m m e n t s t a t e r
"When I was in Tibet," said the old Llama, "not
so long hence, the great gammon told me of a college
where the students had a voting system that was so
honest and fair and secret that they thought it would
work itself. And so they let it go, and interest lagged
more and more until only the candidates themselves
voted. Democracy went out the window and the whole
system went to pieces."
Yup, the gammon was right but then I always
think of the Llamasery's college when everybody voted
for their gammon in the great assembly. The papas
spread all over the place and lalas that were dubious
were practically told how to vote by these papas.
Maybe It was democracy but somehow when somebody is looking over your shoulder, whispering to you
how to vote—it doesn't seem right.
Maybe if the college had realized that they were
voting for their leaders without thinking, they would
have thought, but they didn't think, so they elected
thoughtless men without thinking. So, their lalas decided that they wanted a fair deal, so they set up a
secret ballot. The voters had to walk about ten feet
out of their way when they went to see the dancing
girls. However, the lalas were too disinterested to
walk this or too lazy. Now the papas had irons in the
fire or were up for gammon or backgammon, and they
trudged this ten feet and missed watching the whirling
feet of the devilish dervishes—they voted and they
won. The lalas couldn't complain because they were
getting a secret ballot. This was democracy and that's
what they wanted.
Now, frankly, I think that this system and apathy
was highly odorous.
I know that I'm an old fog bound traditionalist but
I think that you train for democracy, or whatever you
want to call it, every day in all the little affairs dealing with your leaders and friends. Well, I guess that
I've said enough about that, guess I'll see what happened in the balloting for presidency of padded cell row."
The old Llama cleared his throat with a mighty
"hum" and continued, "The Llamasery which I attended had a number of great teachers but they always set in their little cupolas and muttered words of
oracular wisdom but did naught else. Oh, how I wished they could unbend and be one of us—especially
when we were in our last year. I always felt that if
we'd had good discussion groups and they forgot our
marks we would have had better classes and learned
more in our and their special field. But the time I
suggested it they jeered at me—and finally they sent
me here."
With a disgruntled laugh, the old Llama was led
away by his keeper.
Financial Appeasement
The annual senior dorm drive began a few weeks
before the Easter recess, yet thus far only twentyfive members have given promises of $100 to be paid
within ten years provided they secure a teaching
position. Is this sum loo much to pledge to the
college which has given its students four years of
educational growth? The contribution is used to
raise not only the prestige and standing of the college but also the living facilities for future teachers
to come.
Five seniors out of the thirty-five who have received teaching positions have given pledges.
Surely now that these are placed in the field, they
can spread out the ^ 100 on a budgetary basis if
necessary. If the people who receive teaching positions do not pledge, how under the sun can one
expect those who have no jobs to pledge? Those
who now have the positions ought to be the leaders
for those who will follow.
The pledging record is the poorest of any class
in the history of State college. In past years the
senior classes have contributed generously but it
seems that "a sleeping bug" has bitten the class of
MQ. Seniors, graduation is near, better wake up!
The dorm committee has developed a new plan
which will meet the monetary problems of the most
needy student. The committee has decided to accept pledges in amounts ranging from $1 to $100
to be paid over the same period of time. The object
of the plan is 100% participation on the part of
the senior class.
Seniors, if you have money troubles here is a
way of solving one of them. Pledge as much as
you can, and pay when you can, as you can. Help
the dorm committee!
Catalogue Shows
Several Changes

Spring and lots of other things are
in the air. The young man's fancy
turns again to the affairs of the
heart—and other things. The gals too
can be included. It has been a long
time since State college has been
in such a condition of suspended
excitement. In cases of emergency
Washington park is just across the
way with lots of grass and benches.
The year will be climaxed for
the fraternities (all four of them)
by the presentation of an Interfraternity scholarship cup to be
awarded on Moving-up day. See if
you can pick the winner—without
prejudice, boys. In a few years
there is a possibility that the men
will out-class the girls! KDR uproots Saturday from 117 South Lake
to go Western. Let's wish them
luck in their new habitat and hope
for a house-warming soon. E. E.
Potter club started down the remaining stretch of the year with a
vie party Friday night. There was
a bit of a hitch about feeding the
faculty guests—but Emily Post could
have done no better. We hear that
the Sigma Lambda Sigma formal
was a big success. The decorations
were unusual and very attractive;
and the girl friends were certainly
treated right—what with favors and
printed programs. The Kappa Beta
formal arrives this Friday. The
house has been newly interior-decorated, so the dance will Initiate the
improvements—particularly the reconditioned floors.
The sororities have been singularly quiet, in deference perhaps to
fraternity activities. By the way,
President Brubacher at the Interfraternity banquet Wednesday night
suggested the men's houses lacked
the feminine touch—other than that
of the sororities! Good point! Chi
Sig had a tea dance Sunday afternoon. There Is a type of entertainment slighted for the most part by
State students. Chi Sig also Is planning to replace its sign any day
now. At Gamma Kap last Saturday
the other sororities were entertained
at tea. Sigma Alpha moved recently to South Lake avenue—they
got the spring fever too.
Wo can't close without letting you
in on the best quote of the week.
As one Myskania member to another, she said: "He's terrible when
he's aroused—but companionable."

Is that the faint roll of drums

Conversation With An Idiot
Commentstater
"When I was in Tibet," said the old Llama, " n o t
so long hence, the great g a m m o n told mo of a college
where the s t u d e n t s h a d a voting system t h a t was so
honest and fair a n d secret t h a t they thought it would
work itself. And so they let it go. a n d interest lagged
more and more until only the candidates themselves
voted. Democracy went, out t h e window and t h e whole
system went to pieces."
Yup, t h e g a m m o n was right but then I always
think of t h e Llamasery's college when everybody voted
for their g a m m o n in the g r e a t assembly. T h e p a p a s
spread all over the place a n d lalas t h a t were dubious
were practically told how to vote by these papas.
Maybe it was democracy b u t somehow when somebody is looking over your shoulder, whispering to you
how to vote—it doesn't seem right.
Maybe if the college h a d realized that they were
voting for their leaders without thinking, they would
have thought, but they didn't think, so they elected
thoughtless men without t h i n k i n g . So, their lalas d e cided t h a t they wanted a lair deal, so they set up a
secret ballot. T h e voters had to walk about ten feel
out of their way when they went lo see the dancing
girls. However, the lalas were too disinterested to
walk this or too lazy. Now t h e papas h a d irons in t h e
fire or were up for g a m m o n or backgammon, a n d they
trudged this ten feet a n d missed watching the whirling
feet of the devilish dervishes—they voted a n d they
won. T h e lalas couldn't complain because they were
getting a secret ballot. T h i s was democracy a n d t h a t ' s
w h a t they wanted.
Now, frankly, I think thai this system and a p a t h y
was highly odorous.
r know t h a t I'm an old fog bound traditionalist b u t
r think t h a t you train for democracy, or whatever you
want lo call it, every day in all t h e little affairs dealing Willi your leaders and friends. Well, I guess t h a t
I've said enough about t h a t , guess I'll see w h a t h a p pened in the balloting for presidency of padded cell row."
T h e old Mama cleared his throat with a mighty
" h u m " and continued, " T h e I,lamasery which I a t tended had a number of great teachers but they a l ways set in their little cupolas and muttered words of
oracular wisdom but did nought else. Oh, how I wished they could unbend and be one of us especially
when we were in our last year. I always felt t h a t if
we'd had good discussion groups and they forgot our
marks we would have had belter classes and learned
more in our and their special field. But the time I
suggested it they jeered al me and finally they sent
me here."
Willi a disgruntled laugh, Ihe old Llama was led
away by his keeper.

the markings and other characteristics of their actual mother, and
none of their foster mother's. Dr. Pincus is shown examining rabbit

the foster mother (not the one from which the eggs were obtained).
Work in this field may lead, it is hoped, to the breeding of pure

M.A. A. Will Honor'Riz'
At Testimonial Dinner
This year, M.A.A.'s annual
awards banquet will take the
form of a testimonial dinner to
Dr. Adna Risley, professor of history, more commonly and affectionately known as "Riz" to his
associates, friends, and underclassmen in bull sessions, The
banquet will be conducted Thursday, in the college cafeteria with
a toll fee of fifty cents.
Highlights of the banquet will
be an address by Dr. A. R. Brubacher, president of the college,
and a farewell speech by "Riz"
himself. The regular order of
business will also prevail — the
giving of awards to those eligible
candidates in varsity and intramural sports.
The banquet will be the scene
of the first award of the intramural cups for basketball and
touch-football. Cuthbert advises
that it will be a misdemeanor to
miss this important chance for
fellowship.
The chairman of the banquet
will be Prament. Tickets may be
purchased from intramural officials.

Mark Training Period
on Practice Field
After one week of hard work,
the State college varsity baseball
squad opens against RPI of Troy
at Bleecker Stadium, tomorrow afternoon. In fact, this week of intensive work marks the first successful training period the athletes have
enjoyed this season.
Coach G. Elliot Hatfield has plenty
of men to work with and should present a rather formidable outfit
against the engineers. Handicapped
by the loss of last season's regular
catcher and by the loss of Captain
Frank Quattrocchi who injured his
knee prior to the Easter recess, Hatfield has had to make some shifts.
Only four positions are being filled
by those who held them last year.
