DeLaney Speech Delves
In Cats, Injuns and Doors
Miss Sara T. 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.
Life forces you to make your
own decisions. Whatever you do
shows your beliefs. Some of us
still have standards and ideals
but many of us are afraid to
acknowledge them."

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
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

the drums will be Jim Laurie, a

139. Two hundred and one placed

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.

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
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
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

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.
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.

Sayles Questions General Use
Of Brubacher Memorial Lounge
President's Reception
Opens Farrell Mansion
The Farrell Mansion was opened
last night for its first social event
since Mrs. Margaret Brady Farrell
presented it to State College. 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.
Frosh President—
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
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.
