DeLaney, Dean of Women, spoke in assembly last Friday, using as her theme, "Black Cats, Dead Injuns, and the Open-Door Policy." "We must overcome silly superstitions," she said. "When we were young, we used to believe that a black cat was bad luck and that the best injun was a dead injun. Now we are older and have given up these beliefs.

Faculty Attends State Conference Grotton and Band Reach Top Despite Rambunctious Neighbors By Bernard Skolsky "Now listen, fellows, can't you stop making all that racket? People are trying to sleep." So spoke the police not once, but twice, when neighbors complained about the noise coming from "that Grattan boy's cellar." It is that same "Grattan boy" with part of that same orchestra who will entertain State College at the All-State Dance next Friday night, October 31. In three years, BTI) Grattan's orchestra has risen from a group of boys playing for their amusement to one of State College's favorite entertainers. Grattan Is now enrolled at State College as a member of the class of '45. He doesn't have time to enjoy any of the receptions offered to the freshmen, since he has to play at most of them. Last year, while still in high school, Grattan furnished the music for the Soph Soiree. This year has shown a great change in the physical appearance of the band. Last year at the "Swing Concert," Grattan used 14 men. This YOUR COLLEGE FLORIST Corner Ontario at Benson St. year only ten men will be used. Grattan feels that by using ten men he can achieve the same effect of 14 and the idea is more practical commercially. In his new orchestra, the s'ax section will be featured. The sax section will be on the style of Jimmy Lunceford. Grattan himself plays first tenor sax. He plans to concentrute on swing and slow standard numbers rather than on the popular ballads. "Popular songs change so fast and are generally so poorly written and uninspirational that it isn't worth the time to give them good arrangements," Grattan said. Grattan is also scheduled to play at the Sophomore reception tonight Playing with Grattan tonight on the drums will be Jim Laurie, a student at Albany High School, who played with Red Nichols and Claude Thornhill. Grattan Is planning a few prize specialties for the All-State Dance. The dance will be held at the two Alumni Residence Halls, with a n orchestra at each dormitory.

Open discussions in the classroom with broad-minded teachers, and true student government are the best methods of teaching and practicing democracy. Shedding the light of opinion on all controversial problems is the best means of solving them. To give democracy a place in the schools, there must be a de-emphasis of the traditional curriculum content. Inapplicable mathematics, foreign languages, sciences and social studies should be made to live or else be postponed for later specialization. It will be a tragic commentary on teachers, principals, superintendents, college presidents, Boards of Regents, and legislatures if some future historian should record that democracy in the United States crumbled because American youth, from infancy on, was never taught to understand and appreciate the democratic ideal.

Downpour Postpones Awarding of Cup At Annual Banquet STATE COLLEGE NEWS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 14,1941 Gone With The Breeze- On the evening of October 7, 1941, history was made. The momentous occasion was none other than the first constitutional convention of Sayles Hall. The founding fathers having swung valiantly into action the week before had submitted to the assembled Saylesmen the framework of a dandy new constitution, conceived in perspiration and dedicated to the proposition that while you can please some of the people some of the time you can't please all of the people any of the time. The lads were given a free hand to maul the poor thing around as they saw fit. Many not only saw but had one, striking out choice clauses and phrases with the ruthlessness of a European dictator conducting a purge. Rules Produce Chaos Roberts' Rules of Order produced its usual chaos as the harassed chairman attempted repeatedly to lift the shroud of mystery surrounding that never-failing source of turmoil, the "previous question." Some of the freshmen were evidently quite unfamiliar with parliamentary procedure. When the chairman shouted, "Order, please!" they responded as one man: "Beer!" One of the hottest debates centered Courtesy KnicKerOocKer Newt around the question of female guests. .» u L M E M n B E R S o( * • C ° u r V'°„ m l e f l •?

Defense Program Causes Increase in Teaching Jobs State Men May Obtain CPTP Flying Instruction The annual report of the Student Employment Bureau for the fiscal year October 1, 1940 to September 30, 1941 disclosed the fact that 122 members of the class of 1941 were placed. This figure represents 55% of the seniors registered compared with 33% placed in 1940. The Employment Bureau succeeded in securing 392 teaching placements altogether during the past year. The number of experienced teachers placed in large schools was 139. Two hundred and one placed were without previous teaching experience. One hundred and fifty-two of these students were graduated from SbJte or received their master's degree from State last June. The remaining 49 were former graduates of State who had not been placed since their graduation. Twenty-Seven Substitutes In addition to the above teacher placements, 25 people were placed in other than teaching positions. Twenty-seven were placed in substitute teaching positions which range from a few days to a semester's employment. Of the 201 students who received Bachelor of Arts degrees in June, 1941, 21 are unemployed; 2 are doing substitute teaching; 11 are in the army; 21 have not reported; 2 are married; 35 are engaged in other than teaching positions; 21 are engaged in further study; 89 are teaching. Of the 51 were received a Bachelor of Science degree in Commerce, none are unemployed; 3 are in the army; 2 have not reported; 12 have other than teaching positions, l is engaged in further study; and 32 are teaching. This accounts for 253 students who completed the teaching course in June, 1941. Report Gives Salaries ' Courtesy Knickerbocker News The average salary for inexperienced teachers is $1,191.17.

WE NEVER CLOSE Nothing Else So Good 1$ So Good For You Z-443 Freshmen Choose Garfall President O n First Revote Women Repeat Capture Of Majority of Offices Following the precedent set by the Class of '44, the freshmen class chose Florence Garfall as its president, and women captured the majority of offices. Curtis Pfaff was elected Vice-President, Betty Itowell, Secretary, and Gordon Baskin, Treasurer. The regular election was held Monday in the Commons, supervised by Myskania, senior campus leadership society. Revotes were held Tuesday and Thursday. The freshmen women, fearing the threat of male domination in their class, united. On the first election with the men's vote split many ways, the presidency narrowed down to a choice between Peggy Dee, backed by Pierce Hall, and Garfall, supported among others by Newman Hall. The result was a question of which way the men's dorm would vote and the revote shows that Garfall was their choice.

Advanced Dramatics To Give Plays Tuesday Student Producers Will Direct Comedy, Historical Farce Advanced Dramatics students, Kathleen Martin, and Barbara Kerlin, juniors, will present two comedies in the Page Hall auditorium Tuesday at 8:30 P. M. Miss Martin's play promises to be a sophisticated portrayal of the subterfuges at the court of an ancient, Pharoah (James McFeeley, '44). Tiring of his queen 'Jane Curtis, '43), the Pharoah plots to do away with her and substitute in her place the enticing young woman who has currently captured his fancy (June Melville, '43). However, he misjudges the cleverness of his wife who adroitly turns the tables on her rival. The play directed by Miss Kerlin is an entertaining family comedy with its setting in the lower middleclass home of Henry Slater, a meek and henpecked husband (Art Collins, '45), and his grasping, dominating wife (Vera Willard, '44). Their ten-year-old daughter, Victoria, (Betty Clough, '45), causes her The campaign was vigorous and hardfought.

All-State Hop Sets High Mark In Sale of Bids With fifty-nine bids sold Monday, the first day of sales, the All-State dance appears to be heading toward success. All-State is an experiment which, if successful, will bring an annual repetition. In the last few years, Senior Hop has been a financial failure. But, this year, State's big fall formal has new and different features to make it attractive. In the first place, it's not a formal; it's a semi-formal. Secondly, the price of the bids is at a low ebb—one dollar per couple plus ten cents tax. The principal innovation of the dance is the double-orchestra, double-dance-hall feature. The gymnasium of Sayles Hall, the newly completed men's dorm, will be the center of activity where Bob Reid and his orchestra are scheduled to reign. A temporary boardwalk from Sayles Hall will lead to Pierce Hall and the well-known Ingle Room. Here Bill Grattan is to direct an evening of rhythm. Arrangements are being made for the convenience of the dance-goers by selling "cokes" hi both halls. At least two hundred couples are expected to attend the All-State dance, tonight, according to Paul Merritt, '42. Tire administration has shown more than usual enthusiasm in the novel affair. Chaperones will be: Dr. Howard DoBell, Mr. Paul Bulger, Mr-. G. Eliot Hatfield and Mr. Louis C. Jones. Sorority H o u s e Dances To complete the All-Stale weekend, the seven sororities will hold their annual fall house dances from 9 to 1 tomorrow night. The dances will be semiformal, and couples will promenade from one sorority house to another. Music for several of the dances will be furnished by orchestras while other sororities will use "vies." Albany FBI Agent Lectures In Assembly Arthur Cornelius Jr., new special agent in charge of the Albany office of the FBI, spoke in this morning's assembly of the important role the Federal agents play in national defense. According to Mr. Cornelius, never before has this government been so prepared to meet the crisis facing the nation in regard to fifth columnist affairs. Through its preparedness and constant outlook for sabotage, the FBI has been able to check any such activities. This morning's speaker is in charge of the training of police executives in civilian defense which will begin in Albany Monday. Ralph Tibbets, President of Student Association, informed the rivalry classes that the girls' banner hunt will begin the second week in November.

The occasion was the President's Reception to the faculty. President and Mrs. John M. Sayles, Dean and Mrs. Milton G. Nelson, and Miss Sara Tod DeLaney, Dean of Women were ln the receiving line, and members of Myskania served as ushers. Those invited included the Commissioner and Associate Commissioners of Education, and all active and retired faculty members. The guests made a tour of inspection of the mansion. 1941 VOL. XXVI, NO. 7 ALBANY, NEW YORK, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1941 Frosh President— 1916 Dr. John M . Style* "Use of the Brubacher Memorial Lounge in Sayles Hull by the entire student body Is a subject that has never been discussed," Dr. John M. Sayles, President of the College, stated in an exclusive Interview with the STATU COLLEGE NEWS this week. A Nuws reporter met with the President to talk over questions and topics of general in- terest to the student body. The use of the Lounge and the accessibility of the men's dorm to male commuters were among the subjects on which Dr. Sayles commented. As far as Dr. Sayles knows, the dorm has never been locked to male commuters, although such a case has been reported. The President sees no reason why the Memorial Lounge should be open to State College any more than the Green Room of Pierce Hall. The questions will have to be taken up with the administration. When asked his opinion of the student - faculty discussion group, Dr. Sayles declared that h-i is much pleased with the idea. "I think the plan affords a very fine opportunity for the students. It will be a general clearing house for matters of trouble of the student body. The problems will be presented in open meetings, and both faculty and students will offer suggestions. Thus both the administrative and undergraduate sides will be heard." Dr. Sayles Is very much pleased with the job done in cleaning up State College. He has received comments from all sides on the improvement in appearance of the entire school. Evidently the students have taken the slogan "Keep It Clean" to heart.
