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. ALBANY, NEW YORK, FRIDAY. JANUARY 9/1948 choral society Harpist Present 1941 VOL. XXVI, NO. H Wednesday Night's Test Finds n I (" ni 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. Post Wardens Chosen To Check On Lights In Each Group House PLAYERS (I. to r.)

SCA Secretary Resigns Position 1916 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. f >:w \ wmms PAGE 8 S.ATE COLLEGE NEWS, FRIDAY, JANUARY 9, 1948 STATE COLLEGE NEWS Established May, 1916 by the Class) of 1918 Vol. XXVI Friday, .Taiiimry (», 1042 No. 14 Member Distributor Associated Collegiate Press Collegiate Digest The undergraduiite newspaper of the New York State College for Teachers published every Friday of the college year by the NKWS Hoard for the Student Association, Phones: Office, 5-0373; Dorrance, 3-2843 j Hols'teln, i>-2Sl">: Orunwald, 3-0338.

Fi, In Def ense orF rive No Union Now... SakaiaMu: 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 Model in the movements of the female of the Monitor species. Reaching into the hat once Found 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 Determined to exist. It was necessary for a girl who Deadline 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 lower the standing of the teaching profession.

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.

PAGtS STATE COLLEGE NEWS, FRIDAY, JANUARY 9,1948 A . HARRY P A S S O W , Chairman of Myskania Committee Investigating Student Union Possibilities. Eagles Will Encounter Hobart Squad Jan. 16; Merritt Rejoins Team .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. Jane Greenmun and Marge Ackley 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.

Teachers; Increase In Living Costs Fails To Effect Wage Rise Don't be too optimistic, S t a t e College! T h e fact t h a t a serious s h o r t a g e of qualified teachers is t h r e a t e n i n g m a y seem encouraging on t h e surface. However, one look a t t h e pictured g r a p h should dispel all u n d u e e n t h u s i a s m on t h e p a r t of would-be teachers. T h e m a i n reason 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.
