All communications should be addressed to the editor and

The STATE COLLEGE NEWS assumes no responsibility
for opinions expressed In Its columns or communications,
as Btich expressions do not necessarily reflect Its view.
The Campaign Bottleneck
Section 8, part (d) of the By-laws of the Constitution of Student Association says: " T h e commission (Election Commission) shall regulate and
supervise pre-voting activities, including assembly
nominations and acceptance speeches."
In that vague, simple sentence lies the most
deadly power given to any association commission,
for that commission has taken it upon itself to disqualify any candidate not conforming to its acts.
Nowhere does the constitution give it this power.
By so doing the commission over-steps its bounds,
stifling and strangling instead of regulating.
There are issues in our student government that
need a public airing, yet if any one candidate should
challenge his opponent to a debate ( a s M r . Molineux suggests), Election Commission would disqualify him. This does not set well with free democratic election principles.
Our elections are not interesting to students as
the low voting percentages testify. In other colleges
of much greater enrollment the whole student body
votes because it is aroused; it knows what it is voting for; it wants to see improvement in student
government instead of stagnation.
Election Commission, however, substitutes for
any spirit of candidate competition two measly,
unimportant, and unimposing posters for each candidate and a host of boring sedatives in Assembly
called "acceptance speeches." T h e commission
cannot very well regulate what it, by usurped power,
forbids to take place: i.e. pre-voting activities.
Since the Election Commission has failed in its
function, since it furthermore kills rather than creates, since it cannot possibly justify its existence
under present conditions, Student Association should
use Section 8, part (e) of the By-laws (giving a
majority of students veto power over the acts of
the commission) and veto the whole set-up. Abolish
Election Commission and give the candidates a
chance to show the Association what makes it run
(or fail to r u n ) .
The Albany Plan
A milestone that may prove to be as legendary
at State College as the 1914 conversion of Albany
Normal School to a liberal arts teacher's college has
been reached this past year by the faculty and
administration of this college. As released by the
office of the Dean this week, the "Albany Plan"
for a five year teacher training program is without
a doubt a trail-blazer in the educational field.
Despite the temptation, the writers of the plan
have carefully skirted any tendency toward overspecialization in the five year program. Students
will be well versed in four fields rather than two,
and, as a result, will receive a much better education than the ordinary State graduate who receives
his master's degree here or somewhere else. In
turn, they will be better teachers,
Eor years, some educators have charged that the
average teacher is a culturally shallow individual.
They have maintained that too many graduates
of teacher-training institutions carry their narrow
backgrounds into the classroom with them. Even
in State College, departmental recluses, who know
little, if anything, beyond their own field, may be
found among undergraduates,

The Band Plague
The CommentstaterEveryone who knows about it is sick of it and everyone who has had anything to do with it is completely
fed up. Every year, the several colleges in this district,
as in other districts, sponsor a number of formal
dances—dances which require music and consequently
the services of fairly decent bands. There are, of
course, agents in this district who pay rather high
income taxes as a result of monies collected as commissions for supplying these colleges with musical
organizations. On the surface, the setup is a rather
nice one—except for one big fallacy, namely—music
committees seeking dance bands invariably end up
with an outfit that they had not agreed to in the
beginning and were forced to accept because of contract obligations and the pressure of time. These are
not idle words—for details, the chairmen of music
committees for the major formals of this year have
on record sheaths of telegrams, letters, and exchanges.
The following instances are but brief examples to
illustrate the point.
The junior class this year dealt with agents whom
we shall call Smith and Jones. These men promised
the music of "Red" Nichols and his band for the
February 21st affair. Long days of waiting, worrying,
telephoning, conversations, telegrams, and
letters about the Nichols* contract brought
only excuses from our reassuring agents
and promises of speedy action. Finally
came an announcement that "Red" Nichols
had no band! Barred by a contract clause promising
to deal with one agent, Matthews was forced to sign Al
Kavelin, a more obscure band. The climax to the
affair came with the two agents, who had previously
tried to cut each other's throats, calling each other
crooks, each claiming commission money. They were
not far wrong in the names they were calling each
other and the whole affair left a nasty odor in the
noses of many.
Soiree offered a repeat performance with one of
the aforementioned agents. They had profited by the
experiences of the Prom committee, and made an
agreement releasing the committee from the clutches
of the agent if not satisfied by an agreed-upon date.
They went through the sensations of nearly hiring
Dean Hudson, Dick Rogers, and Terry Shand—and
finally gave up in disgust when the final signings fell
through time after time. Fortunately Bill Grattan's
fine performance at the swing concert,
was still fresh in the minds of students
and old standby Bob Reid was available.
Sophomores The Sophomores were pulled out of the
position of having no band a dozen days
before the dance. The Soiree committee not only
pulled Soiree out of the fire but came through with
the largest crowd in years and a neat prof it—something
like stumbling over an object and picking it up only
to find it a pocketbook full of bills.
The malignant growth of swindling agents is not
confined to State. RPI and Union ran the gauntlet
of hiring the Dorsey brothers, Tommy and Jimmy, only
to find that Jimmy had an option in his contract with
the Strand Theater in New York which made it imposible for him to play on that day while Tommy had
accepted another engagement on another option at
VMI for $4500. Naturally the agents knew about the
options, but greedy for the healthy commission they
get as contracting agents, they completely forgot to
mention the option to the college committees. I t is
easy to see how this detail might have been overlooked,
however. Legal actions were contemplated, but were
finally dropped when it became evident that such
actions would have tied the hands of the committees
and prevented the signing of another band in time
for the formal.
There are two distinctive points to this Invective
tirade which should be made at this time. First, we
should not sit back and allow ourselves to be stepped
on by unscrupulous agents as we have for altogether
too many formals. Future committees should feel
bound to deal only with the agents of the individual
bands or the band leader himself. They must, by all
means, steer clear of all free lance agents who have
continually promised but failed to produce.
The college student agent has time and
time again proven himself no match for
an agent who is acquainted with the legal
ropes by which the agent can strangle the
college committees into submission and "commission."
Perhaps some enterprising college students in this district might form an agency and do themselves and the
district colleges a good turn.
The fact that 105 couples, the largest group in
attendance in years, enjoyed themselves Is ample concrete evidence that a name does not make a band.
Either Grattan or Reid was better than any of the
so-called name bands we have had in past years, secured through professional agents. Had the Soiree
contracted for only one of the bands, It Is probablo
that the Soiree-goers would have felt that their $2.20
was well invested, not even begrudging the $.20 tax.
Seldom, if ever, in past years have formals fulfilled tho
number of sets promised on tho p r o g r a m s Cheap
Soiree, with Its continuous dancing gavo
tho dancers more than was promised.
Briefly stated, two bands, neither of which
Is known outside the Capital District, were
able Individually to attract and satisfy a larger crowd
than ever before at a reduced price within reach of
the State College student's pocketbook.
Another vice not mentioned is the practice of sending the leader of a well known orchestra together with
an orchestra, not his own, but rather a pick-up group
of the agent. This possibility is eliminated with Capital District orchestras. For a specific instance of this
vice, tho Intersororlty Ball committee for lust year has
definite data.
The case Is a clear one against professional agents
who have continually defrauded and swindled college
music committees. The sooner our formal music committees contract with Capital District bands of known
quality and scruples, the better music we shall have at
our formals and the price will be within reach of all I
