Advanced Dramatics will again
present two plays on the stage of the

Agne, seniors, are the respective
producers of two satirical comedies.
Jordan's play is a modern version

It Is one of a series of "somewhat"
historical plays. The cast includes
Dorothy Mclsaac, Lauretta Servatius, and Frank Evans, juniors; John
Wltthoft, '43; Don Vanas.
The second comedy was both written and directed by Agne, who also
is in the cast. Other characters are
played by Kay Wilson, Frank Cassidy, and Tom George, juniors;
George Kunz, '43; Harold Ashworth,
Bob White, and Joe Higgins, freshmen.
The Engineers Reply
Reprinted From Rensselaer Polytechnic
An article appearing in a past
issue of Polytechnic has incited our
collegues of the STATE COLLEGE NEWS
to editorialize upon the actions of
the precocious children at Rensselaer.
Gentlemen, we are treading upon
holy ground whenever we cross the
threshold of a State dormitory. We
are immature, conceited individuals
who are to be treated with clemency
(in order to avert the frustration of
youth) by pedagogues well versed in
child psychology, and the care and
handling of illiterate children.
They ridicule us because we migrate to their campus in groups.
Perhaps the esteemed editors of the
NEWS forgot their lessons in mass
psychology, and in so doing fail to
realize that our only object in such
a movement Is to enhance the welcome that we so richly deserve.
We are not placing ourselves
among the unattainable stars when
we say that we at Rensselaer are a
body of unaffected individuals, congregated here with the only intention of pursuing an engineering
education. Occasionally we may
wander from the path. Any statement accusing us of laboring under
illusions of grandeur Is a conclusion
founded upon a false hypothesis.

No Assembly Today,
Walrath Announces
Students intending to study,
eat, sleep, or just wile away time
by cutting assembly this morning
can do so without having their
consciences bother them. Merrill
Walrath, '41, president of Student Association, has announced
that there will be no assembly
today.
The program scheduled for this
morning's Assembly, namely the
traditional freshman sing wherein the freshmen were to entertain the rest of the students by
their solemn singing of th° alma
mater, "College of the Empire
State," and the chain-gang presentation of "Life is Very Different." was suddenly cancelled
when a sizeable number of freshmen were called away to participate in a number of tests. The
freshmen will perform two weeks
hence.

During Entertainment
State College students of all
political parties will gather in Page
Hall Gymnasium Tuesday night to
participate in an Election Watch
Party, celebrate Election clay, listen
to the election returns as they are
broadcast over the radio, and dance
away an evening. The affair, sponsored by the Forum of Politics, will
commence immediately after the Advanced Dramatics weekly presentations.
Admission Fee Three Cents
Students will be asked to pay a
very nominal admission fee of three
cents plus a few additional taxes
which bring the total to twenty-one
cents per person. Members of the
Forum are Inclined to believe that
those students attending will be
made at least a little tax-conscious.
The tax list includes the following: four cents for national defense,
two and one half cents federal, one
cent state, eleven cents county, and
a one-half cent poll tax.
The Forum's party will present a
little of everything that the members
have decided should be part of an
election night celebration. An orchestra has teen selected to provide
music for dancing. The State College brass band will perform under
the direction of Charles Reynolds,
'42.

Draft Hits Alumnus;
Army Calls Fluster
The second number, friends, in
this momentous lottery of patriotism, the second number is 192.
And 192, to be specific is Harold Fluster of 122 Dana Avenue,
Albany, State, '39.
Yes, conscription is real.
At latest reports, the draftee
is doing as well as can be expected. In fact, he feels fine.
"A year's vacation—a new uniform—and we've practically reserved tickets for the PurdueForclham game! Heck, why should
I be mad?" Fluster grinned.
He doesn't know yet when he
will be summoned by the authorities of the Selective Service Act
to enter his year of training. In
fact, he doesn't even know how
he'll look in a uniform, but Fluster and his mother both agree a
year away from home should be
"good for me."

Editorialized in the October IS issue of The
Siena News is a plea for decision debates. Such
debates are requested because non-decision debates
lack the flavor, the combat, and the suspense of
decision debates. Decision debates are better prepared, better received, and better for you. So says
The Siena News.
To all of which we of State must reply—the facts
do not bear out such conclusions. Decision debates
have no place in the collegiate world, if that be an
adult world. In any debate, the emphasis should be
on the proposition, and the solution must rest
"somewhere between" the two extremes. Otherwise the subject is both undebatable and unfair.
Decision debates are too "one-sided" in the dual
sense of the term. They involve inordinate speaking to the judges, as both justice and the audience
are forgotten in juvenile attempts to triumph, And
without casting aspersions on the characters of
debate judges, it is difficult to cite many instances
of squads losing decisions within their own bailiwicks.
Debate Council is to be congratulated on its continuance of the non-decision policy, even though
such a policy makes a desired State-Siena meeting
an impossibility. I would suggest that the two
colleges debate the issue of Decision vs. Decsionless Debates, if only they could come to some agreement anent the judging of such a meeting!

The Rumor is Not Unfounded
Heard from a more than reliable source that
all outsiders would be barred from the noontime
dancing held in the State College Commons.
Seems that there were 18 boys from Siena Indulging in the art of dancing one noon at State,
and It didn't set so well with the male sex,
although the female group didn't mind in the
least, Or are any rumors unfounded.
T h e unusual, sentenceless paragraph and rhetorical query printed above in "Siena Sites????", personal column of The Siena News, raises once more
the problem posed in last week's STATU COIJ.KOK
Nittvs editorial, "Admission by 'Invitation' ". Siena
was not mentioned by name in that issue. Nevertheless it was an influx of Siena boys, self-styled, at
noontime and KIT men at the Campus Night dancing which prompted that editorial,
Frankly, Siena boys are not wanted at noontime
dancing. T h e Commons is too small for outsiders,

STATE COLLEGE NEWS, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 1940
Changes—Faire and Fait
The CommcntiUtcr
Bull sessions are wonderful things—two or more
people of either sex get together and start talking
about some innocent subject, and the next four or
more hours are sure to be full of ideas, phrases, curses,
prejudices, heated debate, and smooth persuasion. One
thing is certain—that the final subject will have
absolutely no relation to the original topic. For example, the original subject may concern the advantages of two five-cent cigars over one ten-cent one,
and end with any topic from sex to religion, education to communism, tolerance to politics.
So it was last week, when three of us started talking
about the relative merits of Willkle's smile as compared to Roosevelt's, wandered to the sophomore
performance in assembly, and after seven or eight
more detours arrived at the subject of courses in State
College, and eventually resolved our arguments into
a heated discussion about one specific course—Hygiene,
Hygiene as taught in State College consists of a
number of highly specialized topics which many of us
are naive enough to call "capable of being pre-med
stuff" and some generalizations which concern themselves mainly with personal hygiene. The idea advanced was that the administration would do well to
revise such a course to meet the needs of State College, an institution devoted primarily to the training
of teachers for the State of New York.

suffering from lack of immediate first aid—first aid
that should have been applied, but was not because
the teacher had never been taught the fundamentals
of practical first aid.
The consensus of opinion agreed on a need for a revision of the present course in hygiene. The revision
would be simple-—it would merely involve emphasis on
the practical aspects of hygiene as related to the
teacher, personally and professionally. First aid as
applied to classroom situations would be the all-important purpose of our course in hygiene. Although
most other courses are taught with the premise that
the student is to be a teacher and emphasis is continually concerned with classroom procedures, hygiene
is one of the few courses which has remained theory
nnd pedagogically impractical.

-J.R.M.CAREFULLY P R E S E R V E D
three-year record hung in balance when the 1940 edition of the
harrier fleet invaded Canton Ag.
School at Canton last week in the
season's terminal trot.
Beginning in 1937, the locals had
chalked up a spotless record of ten
consecutive defeats prior to Saturday's run in the north country. The
Canton meet was a crucial contest. It was at first feared that the
chillier climate of the upstate county
might impel the boys to quicken
their pace to an extent that would
prove fatal to our jealously guarded
record.
The crafty Purple and Gold outfit,
however, solved the problem of keeping warm not by hastening, but by
trotting in close formation well behind their rivals, who served to
break the frigid drafts that might
have spelled doom to our .standing
of the past three years. Not only
did the team manage lo lose against
such tremendous odds, but they
capped the season with a perfect
loss. Not one State runner was unfortunate enough to finish among
the first five.
Our fears of a victory in this last
encounter were unfounded. The
record stands intact. All of which
strengthens our suggestion of last
week that cross country be substituted by some other fall sport, preferably soccer.
Word comes to us that one member
of the team, after noting our comments of that issue, proposed that
"Yours Truly" should go out for
cross country himself since he had
been so generous in dishing out criticism. In our mind, that's something
like challenging John Kieran to
pitch for the St. Louis Browns merely
because he didn't list them In first
place in the final standings.
Moreover we're not interested in
offering constructive criticism in this
case because we don't like cross
country from an objective standpoint, and feel that most non-participating students share our sentiments. This is not a pure act of panning a losing team. The boys have
been striving hard to win every
meet. But if we must have a losing
team, why can't we have one In a
sport like soccer, where spectator
appeal is many times greater?
To go a step further, it is our
belief that if soccer were initiated
at State, the increased interest
would in time produce a winning
outfit. This we base upon two reasons, rirst, the requirements of a
good soccer player are less exacting
than those of a top notch cross
country man, thus making more material available. Secondly, if soccer
should make a hit, there would automatically be created a demand for
coaching of the team. The lack of
these two elements, material and
coaching, has been responsible for
the tragic record of cross country
in the past three years.
To MAA Council wc throw out a
proposal which wc feel has the backing of a great majority of the student
body: that steps be taken to abolish
cross country effective next fall; that
financial adjustments be made to
substitute a soccer team to meet
other nearby college outfits. In any
event, Council should take some serious action to determine satisfactory
means of repairing what Is obviously
a Haw in our sports program.
Incidentally, this department has
received no written response to our
pleas of past issues for communications representing student opinion.
Comments concerning the bettering
of our fall sports program are especially appropriate for this time.
We only ask that all communications be signed; names will be withheld upon request.

Z'V, Mile Course
Canton's cinder and dirt course
is two and three-quarter miles long.
The time of 14:24 negotiated by Joe
Leonard of Canton, was classified as
"darn good." Those who finished in
the money were: Leonard, Clark,
Golden, Marrolti, and Lapski, of
Canton, who took the first five positions, respectively. The Statesmen
bringing in the forty-tally were:
Agnello, Marshall, Hansen, Miller
and Portley.
Manager Bob Cooke gave us his
personal impression:
"This year's Canton team is bidding for a possible national run. Mr.
Dana, the coach, is fairly sure that
his team may bring home the bacon. After seeing them run, I don't
doubt it a bit."
Female Angle
Despite the loss, State's glory was
upheld by virtue of a humorous
quarter-mile race between seven
Canton lads and one Stat:.' man (the
manager). While waiting for the
cross-country team to traverse the
course the Informal race was started
by (or for?) a "beautiful St. LawrTennis Championship

At Hockey Meet Tomorrow
Bully! Sticks! Offsides! These and
many other similar cries will echo
over the campus of Emma Wlllard
School In Troy as another Hockey
Conference gets under way tomorrow. WAA is sending a strong eleven
to match sticks with teams from
Russell Sage, Skidmore and Ithaca
colleges.
Officially called an Umpiring
Conference, it is sponsored by the
Mohawk Field Hockey Club and gives
promise of affording ample opportunity to the girls to pick up many
pointers about the feminine art of
playing field hockey. During the
clay, the games will be umpired by
twenty-five embryo umpires Who
will be striving to pass their tests.
Each team will play the other, and
from the girls participating, the officials will pick an honor team. An
outstanding event of the afternoon
will be a demonstration game between the honor team and the Mohawks (a prominent women's amateur team). Two years ago the
Mohawks suffered a surprising defeat at the hands of a similar honor
team. Incidently, our own Hitchie,
of the athletic department, is a
member of this team and is also
chairman of the Conference.
The team which will represent
State tomorrow is as follows:

Another feature of the day, bound
to prove of great interest, is a movie
of hockey technique which will be
presented for the girls. The evernecessary lunch will be served to
the girls in the school cafeteria.
Besides the college groups, there
will be teams representing Albany
Academy, Emma Willard, Milne and
Delmar High Schools.
In a practice game Saturday, the
Frosh girls gave the upperclassmen
a trouncing to the tune of 4-2 to offset the 3-3 tie of the week before.
The upperclassmen had the edge for
tlie first three quarters, but the
Frosh flashed to victory in a concerted drive in the last quarter
when their team finally started

Songleader Elections
Intramural Basketball
Scheduled by Council
Starts Next Thursday
The schedule for the intramural
basketball league has already been
completed and it will begin to function next Thursday. This early start
is due to tlie fact that each team
will play every other squad two
games instead of the usual one.
The games will be played on every
Tuesday and Thursday, and every
other Monday. Since there will be
eight teams, EEP, KDR, SLS, KB,
Ramblers, College House, Frosh, and
Grads, in the league, the schedule is
not expected to be completed before
the latter part of March.
Madalyn Beers, president of WAA,
has announced that there will be a
re-election for songleader sometime
before Thanksgiving. Mary Susan
Wing was named to this office in
the spring elections, but at the same
time she was also made a Junior
class member of WAA Council, and
she chose the latttr office.
Jeanne Schmactenberg and Dottie
Brooks, juniors, will therefore be renominated for the office. The elections will be delayed until such time
as WAA officers can make up a list
of those eligible to vote.
