SCA to Sponsor Show
Monday and Tuesday
A program of student talent given
for the benefit of SCA will be presented on the stage of the Madison
theatre Monday and Tuesday nights,
under the general direction of Fay
Scheer, '40, general chairman.
Among the students to appear is
Ethel Cohen, '41, who has often
sung to State college audiences. It
is expected that this novelty show
will be as great a success as last
year's presentation.
A part of the general admission
of twenty-five cents will be donated
to help send delegates to the Silver
Bay conference at Lake George. Last
year's conference was the first one
open to men, and SCA officials are
anxious to continue this project.
The double feature will include
"Dark Victory" and "The Lady and
the Mob."

Our lobby proved to be about
50% effective. A portion of the
budget has been restored—In fact,
$11,357 has been voted in the supplementary budget during the
final session of the legislation last
week.
The total reduction in our
budget amounted to $11,270. The
partial cut means a reduction in
faculty salaries which are already
low and also a reduction in the
maintenance for the school.
At the present time, according
to latest reports, there will be no
reduction in the number of freshmen that will enter next year.

Ineunt Novi
And now it is our turn. For two years we have
made our contribution to every issue — writing
stories, pondering over headlines, proofreading, composing editorials, and, most fascinating of all, doing the make-up. Eagerly we have looked forward
from promotion to promotion until the time when
we could take up the reins. Now that time has
come, and it is with a pleasant sensation that we
grasp our pen to write these thoughts.
To our very recent predecessors we say goodbye, and wish you at least as much good luck and
success as you have enjoyed at the helm during the
past year. You have set a journalistic goal for us
which will be difficult to attain.
We look forward to a year of service, a year of
gratifying endeavor, and a year of satisfaction to
you. The ideas of our editorial policies may differ from yours, but we hope to meet upon the common ground of compromise. Ineunt novi, and we
do so to carry on with undying effort.
N.S.F.A. Suggests
The delegates to the N'.S.F.A. conference conducted three weeks ago have brought back one idea
which would be very much to the advantage of this
college to put into practice. We are referring to
the setting up of a faculty-student committee to
regulate and plan social activities for the entire
ensuing year.
Such a committee, as we see it, would have two
functions. One would be to plan the social calendar
for the year, arranging for dances, obtaining speakers for assemblies and teas, and preventing conflicts
in the date of events. T h e second function would
be to regulate and equalize the year's social program, filling in gaps between the major events with
suitable activities attractive to all.
The past year has been more than ample proof
of the need of such a committee. The schedule of
some weekends has been so crowded that adequate
support of them was Impossible, while other weekends have been practically barren of social activity.
Student council has the initiative to provide for
such a committee. The extant faculty committee
on student affairs, augmented by two or three undergraduates, could well serve in this capacity. Here
is a challenge to the newly-elected student administration to perform its first constructive measure of
the new year.

Commentstater '40 accepts the position vacated by

wish to express their thanks to the '39'ers for the
work they have done, cooperation they have given,
and hope they will continue their educational growth

The teaching profession has need of such leaders as
you, and it will be enhanced with the prestige that
you will add. 1939, we. the new board, salute you!

keep from infringing on each other. T h e valuable
middle road of literature -well written yet humorous
or satirical material is left untouched.
Second, t h e
staff organization of t h e consolidated magazine will
be more efficient.
Writing on this point in the last
Issue of t h e Echo, Gordon R a n d says, " T h e a d m i n i s trative a n d creative strength available lor publication
work in S l a t e college is damaging divided at the
present time. Neither magazine h a s a large enough
personnel to do t h e job right. W h a t is more discouraging, neither magazine is organized lor effective cooperation.
. . Combined, the two boards, organized
competitively, would produce ample material lor one
magazine. Responsibility would be reasonably divided.
Underclassmen
would work lor promotion,
relieve
time-cramped upper classmen. It works for t h e NBWH,
it can work for a magazine." By putting all our e n ergies into one magazine, we will turn out a better
publication in which nil good material c a n be used.
T h e most Interesting feature is t h a t this can be
done with a $450.00 saving. In these times of budget
cutting, a justified saving will be welcome to us all.
If the assembly so desires, this money c a n be turned
over to tiie Pod which is sadly in need of it. Surely
it would be better to invest this money in something
we all want r a t h e r t h a n continue spending it on something with which lew a r e entirely satisfied.
We have talked consolidation for years. Now let's
try it.

Leonard E. Kowalsky and Otto
J. Howe, juniors, have been selected by the NKWH board as coeditors of the STATU COLLBQH NKWS
for 1939-40. Sally Young, '40, will
be managing editor.
This marks the second consecutive year in NKWS history that such
a system of co-editors has been
established.
Under this system,
Kowalsky will be editor the first semester while Howe takes charge
during the second semester.
Grcenwald Fills New Post
In other departments of the NKWS
staff, the board decided upon a drastic revision and reorganization including promotions, abolishments,
and the creation of new positions.
The position of associate managing
editor has been abolished and is now
known as associate editor. Holders
of that office are: Beatrice Dower,
Stephen Kusak, and John Murray,
sophomores. All three were awarded
NBWH board keys. A new position
of news editor, carrying board
membership, was also created and
will be filled by Saul Greenwald, '40.
Mary Gabriel, '40, is to head the
revamped business department and
will be assisted by advertising manager Kenneth Haser, '40. The position of circulation manager was
abolished and its functions are to
be assumed by a junior business staff
consisting of: Ralph Clark, Beth
Donahue, Miriam Newell, Evelyn
Olivet, and Betty Parrott. The following compose the sophomore
business staff: Edward Colmar,
Madeline Grunwald, Robert Leifels,
Paul Merritt, Ruth Neisen, and
Allen Simmons.
Clark Named Sports Editor
An even more drastic reorganization was affected in the sports department as Betty Clark, '40, former
women's sports editor, was advanced
to the NBWH board and position of
sports editor. She is to be assisted
by: James Maloney, '41, men's sports
editor; Prank Augustine, '40, and
Arnold Ellerin, '41, assistant sports
editors; and a reportorial staff.
All associate editors, sophomore
desk editors, and former reporters
are advised that competition for a
new post of feature editor will begin in September of next year.
As usual, the NKWS board completed its appointments for the year
with the naming of a number of
members of the freshmen class as
reporters on the editorial staff. The
sixty-two reporters named will compete for the post of sophomore desk
editor, to be filled in late November.
Reporters competing for this position are required to work out on
the NKWS Tuesday and Wednesday
nights beginning in September.

Pardon Mr. John Porter Edge!
Real Rivalry Score Is 3054-17*A
CONTRARY TO THE STATEMENT made by Mr. John Porter
Edge on the night of May 19
(Moving-up Day to you), the rivalry
score between the sophomore and
freshman classes was not and is not
27% to 17% I According to John,
(a math major—tch, tchl) a mistake
was made somewhere, sometime,
somehow in determining the totals—
and it is therefore with great pleasure that the STATE COLLEGE News
rectifies the mistake:
The correct, official, unadulterated score was and is: 30% to 17%.
Short pause while members of the
reading audience cheer, boo, or turn
the page. For those of you who
demand proof, listen my children
and you shall hear a brief history
of rivalry (the official kind) at
State during the year '38-'39. So
get out those pencils and rulers,
and start checking carefully.
Way/way back last October, Campus day saw the sophomores gaining 3 points for men's pushball and
2 points for women's athletic events,
while the freshmen were awarded
1 point for women's athletic events.
There followed a long lull in rivalry affairs. Then Thursday evening
during the last week of the first
semester, the sophs threw a bombshell by finding 1942's banner (for
which feat 5 points were given
on Moving-up day). Next day came
the assembly debate on "steadiness"
in all its aspects, and the elated
sophs gained 2% more points.
Women's basketball furnished the
class of '41 with 3 additional points,
and the rivalry sing in assembly
gave them 2% points.
Then came a great turning of the
tables, worms, or luck—as you will.
The frosh emerged victorious from
the men's basketball game, and thus
accumulated 3 more points. McKown's Grove saw them also carry
off the men's 3 baseball points, although the soph women again helped
balance the score by gaining 3
points from the female baseball battle. In football, after two tie games,
the frosh pulled down 3 more points
by coming out on top In the third
onslaught.
But, alas! The class of '41 once
more came through. The discovery
of the mascot brought them 5 extra
points, which were also awarded on
Moving-up day. Then, determined
for revenge, the excited frosh proceded to walk away with a little
rope as well as the 3 tug-of-war
points.
You know as well as we do the
story of May 18 and 19: men's pushball—2 points for the frosh; women's
athletic events—2 points for them
there, too; stunt^-3 points for the
sophs; and sing—1% points apiece
for the red and blue alike,
So there it is—add it up! And
if you can get anything but 30 %—
17%, well— just show us!! We're
willing to be convinced
And now that all official mathematics are cleared up, we find that
the frosh fellows are athletically
superior to their rivals, but that in
nearly all the women's events the
sophomore Amazons seem to have
the edge on the gals of '42. And
thus, fellow citizens, ends rivalry till
the arrival of 1943 and its little green
banner.

They were out for blood—I mean
ties,—dripping from the ends of a
long, long, silvery pair of shears.
Toya and Eddie decided to
make a rag mat from old r a g s new neckties found around the
necks of activities-minded students. So—giving ample warning
to those who shall enter the activities office, they set out for
their rag-ties.
And did they find them—and
how. Victim after victim walked
into the spider's net that they had
spun, With the help of Borneohaired Lenny, our scalpers went

As the "elite" walked into the
office, Eddie grabbed their ties
while Toya cut them off. Polka
dots, red and blue striped, black,
blue, in fact all colors of the rainbow were exhibited in the line
that was strung accross the activities office.

The Senior class has been very
fortunate in securing the services
of Len Fennell and his orchestra to
play for the Senior Ball on June
19. Fennell's great band has had
a continuous run of more than
five years at the George F. Johnson Pavilion in Johnson City and
has shown up well in comparison
to the finest swing bands of the
country that play there weekly.
The band is distinctive in that
it does not play all of its numbers in its own style. Instead it
uses the best arrangements that
Shaw, Goodman, Clinton, Dorsey
and others have made, such as "Begin the Beguine," "What Is This
Thing Called Love," "Marie," "Sugar,
foot Stomp," "One o'clock Jump,"
"Song of India," "Shoot the Likker
to Me John Boy"—Just to mention a
few are some of the best swing things
Fennell plays in the style we have
heard many times. This year's Senior
Ball promises to be the best in years.
