Kinsella Accepts
Government Job
To A i d Defense
Mr. Cooper W i l l Replace
Supervisor of Commerce
Dr. Thomas Kinsella, assistant
Professor and Supervisor of Commerce, and Dr. Wallace Taylor, Assistant Professor and Supervisor in
Social Studies in the Milne High
School, have both obtained leaves of
absence from their duties here. Dr.
Kinsella will assume a government
position lasting for the duration of
the war; Dr. .Taylor will be absent
for five months, working with the
League of Nations Association.
The Office of Production Management has claimed the services of Dr.
Kinsella as a consulting economist.
He will serve in an advisory capacity
in the Bureau of Price Control under the direction of Leon Henderson.
On Leave for Duration
Kinsella applied for a leave of absence from the college for the duration of the war and left for the city
of Washington on January 2.
Kinsella, a student of recent economic trends, was graduated from
State in 1930, obtaining his doctor's
degree in commerce at Clark University, in Springfield, Massachusetts. His notable dissertation entitled
Albany As a World Port published
in August, 1938, was believed an important factor in the obtaining the
appointment. Kinsella has been at
State since 1937 after teaching commerce in the John Adams High
School in .New York City. He is an
active member of the National Geographic Society and the American
Economic
Association,
through
which he secured the position.

Varied Concert St^te Prepared ror blackout
By Bernard Perlman
Dr. T. S. H. Candlyn directed the
State College Choral Society last
night in a program that ran the
gamut from folk songs and hymns
through spirituals and opera—and
ran it all in top form. The chorus
sang with a freshness of tone and an
exuberance of spirit that remained
with it all through the evening.
Mary-Dorothy Alden, '45, and Audrey Benfield, '43, were featured
soloists, but it was Earl Snow's saga
of a Kentucky Moonshiner that
captured the audience's fancy and
had to be repeated.
Miss Betty Paret appeared both
as composer and performer. Oddly
enough, her best work was done
with the three classical pieces which
opened her program. The impressionistic, modern pieces, which comprised the second half of her program were tantalizing, but still
unsatisfying. It requires the artistry
of a Salzedo to create a mood compatible with the brevity of these
subtle compositions.
Retaining audience interest in a
harp program is somewhat of a feat
in itself, but Miss Paret held her
audience through her ability to
elicit all varieties of tone from her
instrument.
The mighty Beethoven's Hallelujah which concluded the concert,
was done with a power and intensity of choral singing which overshadows performances of the past
three years. John Nordell, '39,
again demonstrated that he is one
of the outstanding accompanists in
the capitol district.

Students Take Part
In W a r Program
To prepare State College group
houses for the city-wide blackout
scheduled for Monday evening, a
practice blackout was conducted
Wednesday night by four faculty
members. The trial resulted in a 90%
efficiency, unusual for a first a t tempt at such a new experience. Dr.
Louis C. Jones, Instructor in English,
expressed complete satisfaction over
the "absolute willingness to cooperate on the part of the students."
Special post wardens and sub-wardens were appointed in each group
house to check on lights and supervise the efficient carrying out of the
rules. The chief aims of the blackouts were: To get all lights out as
soon as possible; To get people in the
safest and most comfortable places
available; in short, to create the least
amount of trouble for the city airraid wardens.
Houses Blackout Quickly
Two and a half minutes was the
longest time taken by any house,
this in a large dormitory where the
warning whistles could not be heard
well on the top floor. Twenty-six seconds was the record. The most quiet
houses proved to be the quickest, and
not a single personal accident occurred.
Opportunities were given the students to ask questions and many i n telligent suggestions from them
brought about changes in the procedure. "You've put us in the cellar—
why? We were told not to go there."
—was the most common question.
Dr. Jones explained that cellars were
found to be the safest places from
the danger of shattering glass and
shrapnel splinters from falling
bombs, as well as the most spacious,
and well ventilated places.
Rooms Should be Lighted
The rooms that the students will
occupy during blackouts should be
lighted if possible, Dr. Jones believes,
but in order to avoid any escape of
light, he advocated making test before the city blackout. Radios should
be run also to relieve the tensity of
the situation, though any luminous
dials must be covered first. "Remember," Dr. Jones said, "you can see a
100 watt light 12 '/it miles through the
air, a match \<± mile and a headlight
20 miles. And bombers have orders
to bomb the lights."
When asked about the actual possibility of an air raid here, Dr. Jones
replied: "If America should get
token suicide raids, I think we have
a reasonable chance of getting them,
more so than New York City, since
Albany is in a triangle, where there
are definite military objectives: e.g.,
the General Electric Company, the
American Locomotive Company, t h e
Watervllet Arsenal and large oil deposits. If tlie trans-Hudson bridges
were demolished, troop movements
would be held up for many days,
while traffic was re-routed through
New England."
Clear Cellars and Attics
To add to safety during air-raids,
attics and cellars should be completely cleared of papers and other
inflammable material, since the first
bombs would be Incendiary to light
fires to indicate more important objectives.
Dr. Jones, Dr. Mary Goggin, I n structor in Latin, Dr, Robert Rlenow,
Assistant Professor of Social Studies,
and Miss Sara Tod DeLaney, Dean
of Women, conducted the trial blackouts. Further instructions concerning the city blackout, particularly in
reference to students present In the
college at the time of the blackout,
will be given by Dr. Janes in this
morning's assembly.

To The Student Body:
-A.I.
Far away and long ago, there was a college. In that
land and in those days, college was a place where serious minded young men and women went to assimilate knowledge, and to develop Independence of thought
and maturity of mind. And, surprisingly enough, some
young men and women who went there actually did.
Mention has already been made that at this college
there were both young men and young women. Obviously this created a problem. Even in those times, the
male of the species was universally possessed of a desire to be in. the company of the female, and the female of the species was endowed with a liking for the
company of the male. Since these likings were complementary, the result was preordained: the female
was often seen in the company of the male.
The phenomenon created a great disturbance in the
minds of the Directors of the College. These men, all
learned graybeards, pondered much, consulted among
themselves, and finally brought forth a ukase: A restriction of the movements of the youths was necessary.
Since they were wise and shrewd, they easily saw that
to remove temptation, it was necessary to restrict only
one of the sexes. Since they were men, they decided to
restrict the women.
Accordingly, they brought forth, after much cogitation and cerebration, a set of regulations designed to
remove all that was imprudent and evil

species. Reaching into the hat once

more, they produced an administrator
of the regulations—a woman.
Deciding, as they had, to entrust the reputations and
the actions of their young girls to this administrator,
they had searched as far and as thoroughly as they
could to find someone with a superabundance of the
proper qualifications, and they had succeeded. The
person whom they chose was old enough to have none
of the outlook or the follies of youth, she was of an
unblemished moral character, and she was possessed
of a perfect understanding. Above all, she was just.
The new regulations were immediately put into effect, and they proved to be an overwhelming and instantaneous success. Everyone was enthusiastic about
them. Their framers were hailed as bringers of a new
high in youthful morality. Everything was ducky.
That is—almost everything. As time went on, and
the students continued to live under them, several
old features were noticed. To begin with, a main provision of the whole set of regulations was that all of the
women should be in their homes at a certain hour.
This was to have kept them from doing any number
of things, all of them undesirable. As it worked out,
the rule forced everyone to do early what he ordinarily would have done late.
The curfew hour was found to interfere with normal
activity. It became almost impossible for many of the
girls to attend an evening showing of a
Hemline
motion picture except on weekends.
Peculiar differentiations were found

to exist. It was necessary for a girl who

went to a dance wearing a short dress
to return to her house at the regularly prescribed hour.
If, however, she wore a long dress to a dance, it was
possible for her to stay out as much as three hours later. It was particularly difficult for many people to
understand why a difference in the length of a dress
that a girl wore should produce a difference in the
length of time that she could stay out.
The process of saying good-night ran into difficulties
all its own. The crowds of couples at the doors of the
larger residence houses became embarrassingly large
as the final minutes of grace drew near each night.
Many a youth could be seen holding his beloved in a
good-night embrace, while she, with one half-open eye
on her watch, kept track of the last few seconds before a dash to the door became necessary.
To eliminate excessive nocturnal osculation, a spotlight had been placed at the front door of the major
women's residence. It was soon evident that the only
thing that had been eliminated had been the front
door as a place of osculation. Ingenious youth found
new places.
The graybeards took no notice of these phenomena.
They rested secure in the knowledge that they were
doing the best that they could to Insure the highest
behavioral standards for the youths in their care. And
their efforts were praised in all educational circles.
The youths, in their turn, abided by the rules, and
longed for their vacations to come so that they could
go home and once more live normal lives.
In a time of national poril many things
which were planned for peacetime activity
must of necessity be scrapped. Yet there are
other projects, seemingly extraneous at the
moment, having such great import for the
future that they must be abandoned only
after the most careful consideration and
thought. One such peacetime project is the
five year teacher-training program of the
State of New York which is at present under
fire from many quarters, not the least from
the students of State College.
The five year plan is not only a program,
it is part of a philosophy oi education which
believes that teachers should have increased
preparation not only in the academic fields,
but in the cultural and social as well. The
training of teachers is an evolutionary process, calling for acquisition of skill and development of personality over a long period
of time and in a wide range of interests.
Costly research and national surveys proved
that teachers who were graduates of a fouryear course were too young and a little
socially underdeveloped to enter upon a heavy
teaching burden immediately after leaving
college. Their training was believed too concentrated ; the products of that training were
lacking in ability to understand material in
more than two, or at the most, three fields.
The five year program was instituted to
correct these faults in the teacher-training
setup by spreading the work over a five year
period and by requiring courses in four different fields of work. Campus-teaching is
done in the fifth year when the trainee is
more mature socially and has a greater command of subject matter.
An attempt to shorten the training period
because of the war will bring back the previous difficulties.
An attempt to shorten the program for
the men who would remain to carry out even
a four year course would not warrant the
expense and energy.
An attempt to shorten the program would

January
The committee appointed by Myskania to investigate
the possibilities for establishing a so-called "student union" in the Farrell Mansion, voted unanimously at its last
meeting to drop the matter and suspend further investigations. The reasons for this action were numerous and
came after weeks of investigation.
Communications from numerous other colleges which
have organizations similar to the one proposed disclosed
situations which would never be met at State College, especially in the light of present conditions. Administration, in almost every case, was by a full-time director
who was either a full member of the faculty or whose
salary was a part of the college budget—either situation
impossible here. In most cases, upkeep expenses were met
by the college budget or by fees too great and too numerous to be met by the State College student body at present. In every case original furnishings for the building
were purchased either by the college or from donations
of a generous alumni association. Briefly—investigations
into the programs of other colleges and universities with
situations most nearly comparable to our own, brought
no plan which could be adopted or modified and used at
State College to support a "student union" considering
the need, activities, and financial situation of the State
College student body.
Under ordinary conditions, the fact that no program
of another college could be modified to meet our situation an original program could have been planned. However, the involvement of the United States in a war has
necessitated the decision to drop the matter on the
grounds that it is both impractical and not feasible.
Furnishing and Maintenance Estimates Made
A preliminary arrangement of activities and space allotment led to the belief that approximately $4,000 or
$5,000 would be necessary to merely furnish the building. Basing the upkeep expenses on the figures available
at the time (which have risen considerably since then
and are still going up), it was estimated that another
$4,000 would be necessary for upkeep—including heating, care of grounds, repairs, and general rehabilitation.
These figures were kept at an absolute minimum, it was
believed, and were based on prevailing prices. With the
United States at war, even if the money were available,
it might not be possible to purchase furniture, fuel oil,
and other things necessary to furnish the Farrell Mansion adequately so that it might be used as a center for
all extra-class activities of the student body.
The problem of financing the program became increasingly difficult. First of all, no money was available at the
moment nor was there any prospect of getting any money
until the payment of student taxes next September. Secondly, purchase of furnishings on a time payment basis
is both impractical, expensive, and extremely poor
finance since the action would have no assurance that
payments could be met in the future years.
Type and Number of Future Students Unpredictable
It was impossible to estimate the number of students
attending State College next year and the war years to
follow just as it was impossible to estimate the character of the student body to come, the activities of this
student body, and the financial situation which they
would meet. It was not extremely difficult to envision
a State College student body next year composed of a
larger proportion of women than ever before, a femaledominated student body living in a war world under
financial conditions altogether different from our own,
engaged in activities altogether different from our present extra-class activities. Certainly, if our present plans
for war activities are developed and are engaged in by as
large a proportion of the student body as have volunteered during the first few days of registration, the need for
a "student union" as planned for by the student body at
present, is completely erased. There will be no time" for
the activities we engage in today nor will there be a place
for many of our present extra-class projects.
Therefore, since the need for a "student union" has
passed temporarily, since the program at present is
financially unsound and impractical, and since it appears
more feasible that the monies and energies and activities
which were to have gone into this project are now needed for more important and lasting programs—the committee has voted to drop the matter of a "student union"
until this great crisis in our national history has reached
its victorious solution.

.CARL.
The influence of the war and the
draft means more than a chilly wind
here at State.
We swung back into the saddle; after a vacation of syncopation and
hibernation to find that half of
State's womanhood returned flashing rocks on the finger, while a
seemingly equal number of men
were on the verge of leaving for
military training.
Basketball Affected
Affecting the sports front is the
news that Morris (Moose i Gerber
has joined up with the now famous
V-7 of the Naval Reserve Corps.
"Moose" just nosed out his local draft
board, but is subject to call upon
very short notice by the Navy.
Next comes our former stellar eager, Bill Forrest, who signed up and
was accepted by the Marines. Bill
left
college
immediately
after
Thanksgiving vacation.
At this time we hear that Co-captain Bill (Deacon) Dickson has been
in the 1-A class since last September, and his deferment expired yesterday. What the score will be with
the present set-up remains to be
seen.
Neither Dickson nor Gerber will
have to leave the team for the present unless an emergency arises. This,
we consider especially good news.
Merritt Returns
And more good news comes with
the announcement that Paul Merritt
will be able to play basketball once
again. Paul has been pronounced
physically fit to play basketball by
the college medical staff, although
he may only play for limited periods.
State will tackle RPI tonight on
the local court and it seems that the
boys cau chalk up another victory
for Pedagogy.
The State basketeers, presumably
refreshed by the Christmas vacation,
will resume activity this Friday
when they meet RPI on the Page
Hall court. This will be the only
game between these two teams this
season.
RPI has played only one game so
far. That one was against Hamilton,
RPI emerging the loser by two
points. The team faces several difficulties going into the game tonight.
Not only has RPI played only one
game in comparison to State's five
contests, but the squad has lost at
least, temporarily the services of one
of its most valuable men, co-captain
Bert Hawks. It is to be expected that
the team may have trouble accustoming itself to State's small court.
Eagles At Full Strength
As the Eagles round into midseason form, Bill Marsland appears
to be the "white hope." Although
only a sophomore, his steady, wideawake all-around good play has
earned him a position on the starting five along with co-captains Hank
Brauner and Bill Dickson. Brauner
is the team's leading scorer with 52
points in five games. Dickson's direction of the floor play has made
him invaluable to the team. Paul
Merritt, a veteran of last year who
has been unable to play with the
team until now, may start in the
RPI game. He has been coaching
the freshman team but has not
worked out with the varsity until
this week. Leo Griffin will probably be the fifth man.
Hobart Next
Point Decides Victor
In Basketball Opener
Western Hall gained the distinction of being the first victor of
WAA's basketball season by taking
a close contest from Cooper House
with a score of 21 to 20. The game
was tightly fought with both sides
displaying a great deal of speed.

led Cooper.
At the end of the first half, Cooper
was leading by three points, but
during the second, Western began
piling up points and wound up with
a winning one-point margin. Enslow
made a spectacular shot close to the
center bringing the victory to her
team.
In the second game, Moreland beat
Commuters A by a 20 to 5 score. The
Commuters trailed with but a single
point until the last few minutes
when their passwork began to click.
Dorm A's combination of LaSalle,
Domann and Herdman proved too
much for Dorm B, who lost 16 to 6.
Gerber Enlists In Navy;
May Finish College
All you loyal feminine basketball rooters may heave a sigh of
relief. Contrary to all previous
reports, "Moose" Gerber will
definitely remain at State and
on the basketball team.
"Moose" has enlisted in the
Naval Reserves and will be allowed to finish his college career. Through this Gerber gets
a V-7 classification in the Naval
Reserve and will become an ensign in the navy when he finishes his training. He is also on
call during the summer for preliminary training.
"Now I have something to look
forward to. It's great to be able
to continue playing for State,"
said "Moose," voicing the opinion of most of State College's
athletically-minded students.
Monoghan Bowls High Score
Yesterday Ann Monoghan bowled
a high single score of 175, thereby
leading the WAA league and pacing
her Newman Hall team to a victory
over Psi Gamma. Thursday the
Newman team will meet the winner
of the Junipers-Wren Hall match
which is to be completed Monday.
A game with Hobart on the Page
court January 16 will be the final
game of the semester. Hobart's Ave
is pretty much of an unknown quantity as this will be their opening
game. Several veterans including
co-captains Roy Weber and Herbert
Fitch who played on the squad which
beat State last season have returned
and Coach Speed Wilson is expecting to have a good team. Hobart
has included such teams as the University of Rochester, Colgate, and
RPI in its schedule.

for t h e growing decrease in teachers
is t h e Inadequate salary paid t h e
average member of the teaching
profession today.
in spite of t h e rising cost of living, t h e salaries paid to teachers
have n o t increased proportionally.
Living cost h a s gone up 11%, a n d
food prices have increased 19%. T o
compete witli this, teachers a r e being forced to leave the classroom for
defense industries, t h e National
Commission for t h e Defense of D e mocracy t h r o u g h Education reports.
W h e r e a s t h e incomes of factory
workers have received a n average
30% increase, a n d t h e cash income
from farm products h a s increased
45%, t e a c h e r s ' salaries on t h e whole
have r e m a i n e d static. Few schools
h a v e a t t e m p t e d a n y solution for t h e
situation, a l t h o u g h some cities have
added a 10% "cost of living bonus"
to existing salaries. T h e Oommls-
P«,cfnl
HUUUHM
sion advocates t h a t this system be
used In o t h e r communities.
At t h e p r e s e n t time, there is a l ready a n acuto shortage of teachers
In r u r a l village a n d elementary
schools, particularly In certain s u b ject a r e a s such as science, industrial
arts, a n d business education. T h i s
shortage actually t h r e a t e n s to u n d e r m i n e educational s t a n d a r d s ,
Since m a n y communities h a v e r e duced teacher qualifications to meet
t h e s h o r t a g e , a decrease in t h e quality of school work h a s ensued. D u r ing t h e c u r r e n t year it is expected
t h a t between 5,000 a n d 10,000 e m e r gency certificates will be issued t o
unqualified
a n d partly
trained
teachers.
Corresponding with t h e decrease
in teachers available, t h e enrollment
in t e a c h e r s ' colleges a n d schools of
education h a s also undergone a
m a r k e d drop, declining as m u c h as
20',' in one state.
T h e r e should bo a n average n a tionwide increase of 15% In teaching
salaries, w a r n s
t h e Commission.
S u c h a n increase would tend to hold
m a n y qualified teachers within their
chosen field a n d to Induce s t u d e n t s
to consider teaching as a career,
Otherwise t h e existing shortage in
t e a c h i n g personnel Is certain to b e come worse. Those w h o leave t h e
profession now for better paying
positions a r e a p t to r e m a i n In their
new fields after t h e emergency is
over.
Definite steps m u s t be t a k e n to
relieve t h e situation. T h e C o m m i s sion believes t h a t "the times p e r m i t
a m o r e generous financial s u p p o r t
of t h e schools."

10% Cut Imminent
In College Budget
T h e long-feared cut in t h e S t a t e
College activities budget is i m m i n e n t today as t h e enrollment, n o t
up to par in September, h a s d e creased even more since t h e first

I t is estimated t h a t a
10% general c u t will be necessary
In order to relieve the depleted financial s t a t u s of t h e college,
Of 1000 taxable students expected
in September, only 942 u n d e r g r a d uates w e r ; enrolled. At t h e p r e s e n t
time, there are only 900 s t u d e n t s ,
including graduates, in t h e college.
T h e r e was a total of 1025 s t u d e n t s

time 05 m e n .;nd women h a v e left
school, for t h e army, marriage, t o
take jobs or for other reasons. E a c h
of these 05 students were refunded
half of their s t u d e n t tax, t a k i n g
$455 dollars away from t h e complete
sum reserved for t h e activities
budget.
T h r e e items cannot be reduced,

Until oil refunds on taxes a r e
made, there will be no definite a c tion taken to effect t h e t e n t a t i v e
cut.
