FOAVICTORY STATE COLLEGE NEWS, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 1942 PACE 4 W A A Schedule ABSENT Spant Offers Students It is with a deep trust in the virtue of hope that the men of the class of 1946 have started their freshman year here at State. With this country in need of manpower, college men are finding it more and more difficult to finish what they started in their freshman year. Yet, still they come, undaunted and hopeful. Hopeful that, even thougli hell is loose on earth, they may obtain a college education. It is with this in mind that we extend a warm hand of friendship to welcome the frosh into the sports life of State College. • H* # 'f' Starting a school year for the first time since this country entered the war, we find that the athletic program of the college is once again feeling the effects of a nation at arms. Last spring varsity baseball was wiped out of the State College picture principally because of transportation difficulties. Now the basketball schedule finds itself in a hazardous position. Coach G. Elliot Hatfield admits the basketball situation is grave but added, "As yet we know nothing." * * * * Here's how the situation is at present: 1. One college has already cancelled its scheduled contests with State, reducing the number of games listed from twelve to eleven. 2. Transportation difficulties will be encountered in the trip to Potsdam and Canton, where State is scheduled to meet Clarkson and St. Lawrence, respectively. This may reduce the season's contests to seven, since these colleges will in all probability cancel their games scheduled for Page. 3. Certain Reserve Corps forbid their members' participation in varsity sports. The effect of this rule on State's cage squad is as yet undetermined, 4. A good number of the varsity members who have Reserve status are liable to call to active duty at the end of the semester—right in the middle of the court season. A meeting of the Athletic Directors of the college was scheduled for yesterday. At this meeting, the results of which have not yet reached us, was determined the fate of State's most popular sport. We can only wait and hope. Men's Athletic Association opened its 1942-1943 activities with a meetLooking the frosh over, seeing ing on Tuesday of this week.

Playday Features Fashions, Frolic RICES ALLEYS Cancel Frosh Camp; No 'Busses Available The inability to secure busses for transportation caused the cancellation of the freshman camps fur the class of 1946. This marks the first year since frosh camp was started that an entering class to State College did not spend the weekend before matriculation at Cossayuna Lake and Burden Lake. The omission of frosh camp, which had developed into an established tradition, came as a surprise to most of the undergraduates. Owen Bombard and Lois Hafley, seniors, who were in charge of this year's outdoor weekend for boys and girls, respectively, regret that plans could not be carried out as scheduled. The freshman suffered bhe greatest loss when their weekend camp was cancelled. It offered them an excellent opportunity of getting acquainted with other members of their class in an informal atmosphere. Here, too, the frosh would receive a preview of the State way of doing things. lAVINOi '•ODD* AMSTAMH Hv Shirley Win/ Frosh Net Tourney Begins Next Week Faculty Workshop Is Successful Venture Dr. John M. Sayles, President of State College, has released the complete report on the Faculty Workshop held at State College during the month of June. Participants included faculty members of various colleges throughout the state. Dr. Sayles, Dr. Robert Frederick, Principal of the Milne School, and Dr. J. Allan Micks, Professor of Education, were the State College reprerentatives on the planning committees. Participants In the workshop enrolled in one of three groups: I Human Development and Behavior; II Reading, Writing and Speaking; III Professional Education of Teachers. The topics were discussed through general and group meetings, conferences with consultants and individual study. Group I rated individual responsibility, flexible schedules, preplanning for meetings and having resource people available as the most valuable of the workshop techniques. Recreational and art opportunities were deemed useful as balances for other activities, for developing creative skills and for coming to know other people. The pro and con of various educational beliefs was discussed, and a larger use of discussion, preferably prepared discussions, was advocated. Group II discussed motivations, materials and procedures in regard to its subject of communication. Group III on teacher education discussed procedures, philosophy, the utilization of community resources. The workshop accomplished its purpose, and its sponsors, the Committee on Teacher Education of the Association of Colleges and Universites of N- Y. State were satisfied.

War appropriations have cut deeply into funds allotted to NYA in colleges; therefore, detailed reports if students' needs must be compiled immediately, and handed to NYA officials, if State College is to receive any money this year. It is advised that students who do not actually need NYA assistance in order to remain in college do not make applications in view of current conditions. When and if the N.Y.A. appropriation comes through, notices will be sent to all those students who have applied in Miss Delaney's office, and at that time more detailed applications will need to be filled out. Fraternity Smoker m wsaam I omorrow Nisht "~~ Parties for Freshmen Scheduled Next Month The first red-letter day on the fraternity rushing calendar is tomorrow. At that time the annual Interfraternity Smoker will be held from 8 to 11 P. M. in the Lounge. Joseph Levin, '43, is in charge of arrangements, and promises a good time for all. Freshmen men will be be introduced to officers of various campus organizations, sing "ye olde college songs," play cards and smoke free cigarettes. The smoker is only the beginning of the rushing season. Rushing rules are quite uncomplicated for the men as compared to those for the women, since among other things, the lucky males have no "silent period." However, they will be kept busy and entertained by the many fraternity parties to be held in their honor. KB and KDR will start the ball rolling on October 10. SLS extends an invitation for the 16th Potter Club for the 30xh. KB and KDR will again hold parties on the 31st respectively. On November 6, Potter Club again entertains SLS on the 7th, KDR on the 13th, KB on the 14th, SLS on the 20th, and Potter Club the 21st. Bids will come out on the 23rd, the day before Thanksgiving vacation, so that Freshmen will have a few days to make up their minds. VOL. XXVII.

Among the heroes is an Englishman, Captain Peter Cochrane, 23, D.S.O. and bearer of the Military Cross of the Cameron Highlanders. He has been in the army since the beginning of the war fighting in Libya and Italian East Africa. The Netherlands' representative is Raden Kadir, a knight of OrangeNassau, who was born in Java. Barely escaping with his life at the fall of the Dutch East Indies, he fled to the United States where he is now attached to the Netherlands Information Service. The Chinese delegate is unique in that she is a woman and an actress. Miss Yung Wang received her education at a university in Tokio but returned to her native China to raise funds for China's wounded soldiers at the beginning of the Japanese invasions. There is only tentative information available lo date as to the identity of the Russian. Either Nikolai Krasavchonko, with the thrilling details of his hair-breadth escape through 250 miles of enemy occupied territory, or Vladimir Pohelintsev, one of the best snipers at the Leningrad front will give the vivid picture of the Russian war arena. These men and woman have had reserved seats in the great Collosseum of International Disorder. They have seen their trench-mates shot down in action, their countries ransacked and demolished, their armies victorious and vanquished. Their purpose is to sow the seed of war consciousness here in America. This group is one of several teams sponsored by the International Student Service and National Student Federation of America whose job it is to send out similar representatives throughout the colleges and univer.vties of the world. The group will arrive Friday morning in time for assembly and will remain in Albany until Sunday. They will make their headquarters at Sayles Hall until their departure for Bennington College in Vermont.

It was extremely disheartening to learn that nearly one hundred students, as of yesterday, had not paid their student taxes. College has now been in regular session lor more than a week, and nearly everyone has had an opportunity to arrange lor payment. In many cases, of course, payment default cannot he blamed on the students themselves. We cannot but realize how many of the men in college are hesitating to expend $14 lor benefits which they may not be able to enjoy, in view of the uncertain world situation. However, no organization, not even the Student Association, can make plans and commitments for an entire year with close to $1500 missing from iis total budget appropriation, Contracts have been lei games have been scheduled; the money which has not yet been entirely raised has, lor the most part, been spent or allotted for specific purposes. The possibility of forced refunds in the middle of the year only casts further darkness on the picture. Chief culprit in the matter is Student Association itself. It neglected to set up adequate machinery in advance to meet the situation before the chronic need became acute. Enrollment has dropped approximately l">% this year, and, as things stand today, the percentage may be much higher by January. It is imperative at this time that; (I) finance Board be mandated to make a lull and thorough investigation of the tax and budget situations; (2) That Finance Board present to the Student Association concrete resolutions setting up machinery whereby the budget may be maintained or altered in the event of a mass exodus of the remaining men from the college; (3) That these actions be completed by Finance Board within the week of October -! to October !), and presented to the Association for consideration on the latter date.

As the situation still stands in that sector United N a tions' forces still hold the Solomon Islands, a n d have stopped t h e J a p s on the Island of New Guinea where they h a d driven toward Port Moresby north of Australia. The inhabitants of the capital of the Island of Madagascar cheered British troops as they entered the city. The British radio warned the French people lo evacuate the coastal region of France. However, they also stated that a n invasion would not take place until the complete annihilation of the G e r m a n troops was a certainty. Last Spring the British radio also warned French workers in factories p r o d u c ing for the G e r m a n s that they would be bombed. Maybe the British want to got all the civilians o u t of the coastal region so that their military operations would not be h a m p ered by well-meaning French p a triots. 1 Gnxuob and G<U-GalU This is the story of J o e Doakes— Who always did everything Right.

The Albany Defense Council p r e sents a radio program each week in an effort to bolster civilian morale and to increase civilian knowledge of what actually is going on. S t a t e College s t u d e n t researchers dig o u t the facts for these radio programs. Interviewing dignitaries, culling over g o v e r n m e n t documents, c h a s ing down public officials, perusing trade j o u r n a l s for economic i n t e r pretations—these are all part of t h e work of the radio researcher. S t u dents w o r k i n g as radio researchers are assigned to topics of c u r r e n t i n terest, such as the scrap metal drive, price ceilings, and silk stocking shortages, with orders to r e t u r n in two weeks with information. When the students have returned with their facts, t h e information is a s sembled, a n d t u r n e d over to t h e s c r i p t - w r i t i n g class who then t u r n out t h e script for actual production. Usually assignments are of a t w o weeks d u r a t i o n , b u t this year there will be a special "Trouble-Shooter S q u a d " of researchers who will dig up information in a h u r r y if a n d when it is needed. In addition to doing research for the radio p r o grams this year students will also do special research work for the Albany Defense Council. Bob B a r t m a n , student chairman of the group, has called a meeting of all s t u d e n t s interested in such work for this afternoon at 3:30 in Draper, Room 307. Local H o s p i t a l Sends Pleas for Student A i d An Albany hospital has informed Miss Sara T. Delaney, Dean of Women, that it needs State College students for jobs as orderlies a n d nurses' aides. Wages will a m o u n t to approximately thirty cents an hour, although that will vary according to experience. The hospital is also willing to suit the time of the work to the student's personal schedule. Dean Delaney urges thai all s t u d e n t s take advantage of this opportunity to serve the community and aid the w a r effort. All students interested must first go to her office to get their recommendations, so there will be n o necessity of a p r i vate investigation by the hospital. T h e r e has also been a call for workers in the public library. They would especially like seniors who are majoring in librarianship, a l though other students interested in this work will be accepted.

STATE COLLEGE NEWS, FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 85, 1942 PAGE4 <2U*tt#i Commando Training Planned For State Men In Short Time B y Pete Marchetta Physical Fitness. I n t r a m u r a l ' h i s for some time been n o m o r e than a n a m e to m a n y of the m a l e students of this college. Although I n t r a m u r a l Council p r e sents a' varied sports program, t h e same g r o u p of students play football in t h e fall, basketball in the winter, a n d softball in the spring. The others prefer to remain just s p e c tators. ' These n o n - a c t i v e students fail to realize t h e Importance of participation in sports, In previous y e a r s t h e r e h a v e been entirely too m a n y spectators h e r e at State. I n t r a m u r a l Council found it n e c e s sary a t times to cancel some of its activities. Last year t h e m e n ' s dorm, housing about fifty men, found it impossible to maintain two squads in i n t r a m u r a l leagues. Thjs would have necessitated a response from only one quarter of the m e m bers, but even this small percentage could not be attained. A similar situation evidently existed in those fraternities with thirty or more members, since they also were able to field only one team. Place for All Bill Marsland, president of I n t r a mural Council, has assured this d e p a r t m e n t t h a t there is a place in their p r o g r a m for every m a n in the college. "More teams can certainly be formed," he said, "and if t h e r e are too.many teams, we can r u n two leagues in any one sport." The building of a strong, healthy body while in college is j u s t as i m portant as the development of the mind. With most of t h e m e n as prospective soldiers, sailors, or m a rines, physical fitness is no longer a personal matter, but a national need, Very few students receive m u s cular, exercise outside of the college. Therefore, intramural sports offer an excellent opportunity for e v e r y one to help themselves a n d Uncle Sam physically. There should be no reason why every man. in the college is not physically fit. But why did it take t h e w a r to remind State College students that physical training is essential? It seems r a t h e r ridiculous to us that the necessity of this training was not realized before. Let us hope that after the war a more extensive physical training program than has been followed in the past will be emphasized by the administration. * * * Basketball to Stay State College will have a varsity basketball team this year. The d e c i sion was made late last week at a joint meeting of MAA and the faculty athletic council in the president's office. It came at a time when rumors had most of the college convinced that there would be no b a s ketball this coming season. The lone game that was cancelled by Cooper Union was scheduled with RBI, with whom the New York city school also cancelled its game. Other transportation adjustments were made and State will open its basketbull season as scheduled. Frosh Tennis O p e n s Fall Sport Activities The a n n u a l frosh tennis t o u r n a ment got u n d e r way yesterday afternoon at the Washington Park Courts. Some promising nelsmen have been bracketed and talent for next year's varsity squad will p r o b ably reveal itself. H a r r y Kensky, who is in charge of this event, stated that he believed the matches would be as successful as the last one although greater difficulties have been encountered this year than in the past. The lack of frosh camp, the t r a d i tional "event-forecaster" and the a b sence of a men's bulletin board in lower Draper have made it h a r d e r to contact all tne freshmen aspirants. It is hoped that the present good weather will continue so the t o u r n a ment may be brought to a completion quickly. Following the p r e cedent set lust fall, a trophy will be a w a r d e d by I n t r a m u r a l Council to the final victor.

T h e object, of course, is to toughen the male attendants of S t a t e College who, according to P r e s i d e n t Sayles, "have h a d for some time a reputation of the opposite n a t u r e . " Hatfield in Charge Coach Hatfield, who will h a v e charge of this program, will have his hands full, for b y order of t h e State Department of Education, every m a n in college must participate. W h e n boxing, pushball, wrestling, w a l l scaling, and r a i l - r u n n i n g begin, there will be no spectators a m o n g the men of State. Bruises and aches are expected to be plentiful for some time, b u t it is the opinion of the college a d m i n i s tration and the State Board of E d u cation that these will be of more value than harm. "Everything Goes" Roughness in the "everything goes" m a n n e r will characterize the gym class games, but calisthentics will also be stressed. Condition, not enjoyment, will be the purpose. The college campus will be the scene of this commando training throughout the year, rain, snow, or shine. T h e trainees will be e x pected to climb or vault the p e r i style walls, and run the length of the cement rails in front of Draper. Oilier Obstacles Planned Besides these obtacles, the coach is planning hurdling, rope-jumping, ditch-leaping, ladder-climbing, and barrel-crawling and everything else which will defy the muscles of State's men. Coach Hatfield answers all those who doubt their ability to do these things with, "You'd do it if the J a p s were chasing you with bayonets." M A A asks the cooperation of the s t u d e n t body in this endeavor, and in t u r n pledges its aid to the administration. State is not a pioneer in this project since both R. P . I. and Union in this district have successfully introduced this program. The authorities are d e t e r mined that Stiite, too, will be s u c cessful. WAA rrogram To Begin Monday The WAA fall program swings into action next week, At the council meeting last Tuesday, definate days and hours were assigned to tennis, hockey, badminton and archery. Dot Townsend, junior r e p r e s e n t a tive on council, was appointed r e porter. She will act as liason officer between council and the News.

Plans to Expand Grogan to Groom Milne's Athletes ForCommg Tear By Ernest Mennillo Recently appointed coach at Milne High is tall, blonde and handsome H a r r y J a m e s Grogan, an a l l - r o u n d regular guy. He is taking the place of Kooman Boycheff, last year's coach, who is reportedly in the A r m y at the present time. However, girls, don't get excited over the description, for Mr. Grogan is already married and has a nine months old baby boy. Asked if he had any plans for the young one, he replied, "He'll be playing on the varsity in about a year." When finally located, he was h a r d at work with his managers, a r r a n g ing his basketball schedule. He h a s high hopes for a full season, p l a n ning sixteen games. He expects to take the team on one long trip. Mr. Grogran is deeply impressed with Milne and expects to stay at least till the end of the school year since he has a 3-A draft rating, Born in Schenectady, he attended Halsey, Washington Irving I n t e r mediate School, and Nott Terrace High. He attended Cortland State Teachers' College and graduated in 1940. While there he played varsity basketball and baseball. When asked why he didn't play football, he responded that one of his cousins was seriously injured at the sport and, in addition, he, himself, was h u r t while working on the parallel bars. These two events brought an emphatic "no" from his family t o ward his designs on football. On leaving Cortland, Mr. Grogan taught at Kinderhook High and later at Tully Central. At the present time lie is living at Sayles Hall. However, he plans to live with his family in Dolmnr a little later in the year, "There is only one thing wrong with this," says Mr. Grogan, "Since Bethlehem Central and Milne are such deadly rivals, I don't know whether or not I'll be able to travel back and forth between the two places." SPORT TOGS Snappy Men's Shop Athletic rrogram Uorwa Idt Will examine Football Men Wednesday Faced with the j o b of e x p a n d i n g i n t r a m u r a l athletic activities to keep in t u n e with the times, I n t r a m u r a l Council held its first meeting of the school y e a r u n d e r P r e s i d e n t Bill Marsland last Tuesday and proceeded to lay the g r o u n d w o r k for its program. A r t Flax and Charles Capel, r e presentatives to the council from K B and S L S respectively, took charge of football and met with Coach H a t field this week to p u t a schedule together. Examinations Wednesday Dr. D o r w a l d t gave notice t h a t e x a m i n a t i o n for all i n t r a m u r a l football players will be held on W e d n e s day between 6:30 a n d 7:30 P. M. At positively no other time, he stated, will e x a m i n a t i o n s be made. R e p r e sentatives to the council from all the i n t r a m u r a l teams, Marsland from KDR; Reed, Potter Club; Woodworth, Sayles Hall; Ruback, College House; Kiley, R a m b l e r s ; and Capel and Flax, will m a k e up the lists of those to be examined. It is important that those i n t e r ested in playing football see the proper r e p r e s e n t a t i v e immediately. Boxing P l a n n e d A step toward greater i n t r a m u r a l expansion was taken with the a p pointment of Bert Kiley to the post of organizer of i n t r a m u r a l boxing. It is expected that boxing will start with the close of the football season. Not in many, m a n y years has physical fitness t h r o u g h physical exercise been as i m p o r t a n t as this year. To q u o t e P r e s i d e n t Marsland, "With the war situation as it is, the fellows should get behind this thing and m a k e this a b a n n e r t u r n o u t year." Expansion of the i n t r a m u r a l p r o gram has given rise to the suggestion that medals representative of the sport engaged in be a w a r d e d the m e m b e r s of the winning teams. Ed Reed was appointed to look into the matter and report to the committee al its n e x t meeting, Be mm Hi there, frosh. By this time everyone else has g r e e t e d you and urged you to join one thing or a n - , other; now I'm in t h e mood. You're probably swamped a t this time with clubs and more clubs. A n d still maybe you h a v e n ' t allotted any hours for war work yet. So there's that to think about. It's all true. You're busy and you can't do e v e r y thing. B u t h e r e I am with still a n other activity for you—WAA. When you're m a k i n g out t h a t busy schedule of yours, give two or t h r e e hours a week to athletics. Go r i d i n g horses are nice individuals even when you fall off. P l a y hockey— you'll probably meet some of your best friends by banging t h e m in the shins. Why not go swimming? There're always g u a r d s to m a k e certain that w h a t goes d o w n comes up. Badminton is a great sport, one of the few that gives you a chance to bat the bird instead of getting it. So be athletic, frosh, and then when you want to join the W A V E S or the WAACS, you'll be 1-A in the Army. By profess of devious channels of reasoning you a r e sabotaging the war effort at State if you do not look at the WAA bulletin board. Want us to explain? We thought that you would. This is how we reason. WAA Is keeping what seems to be a minor part of a ton of thumbtacks from the scrap metal drive just to pin up signs for the women of State. T h u s , if you neglect the bulletin board, you are m a k ing valuable metal serve no purpose. Or don't you see it that way? Anybody want to bet a thin dime that bowling won't be the most popular sport at S t a t e this w i n t e r ? We'll take on all comers 'cause by the way the wind of talk is blowing, people are even more interested last year when bowling brought out in bowling this year t h a n they were so many active keglers. We've heard r u m o r s that even Chi Sig which isn't the most athletic sorority on campus, plans to have a team this year. Psi G a m m a , winner of the bowling trophy last year, has a good chance to repeat since Win Jones and Pat Gibson, star bowlers, are back this year. N e w m a n Hall and Gamma Kappi Phi, who tied for second place, will again be there in the bowling for the handsome trophy, But no m a t t e r who proudly bears it home to place on the shelf, there will be fun for all the keglers. WAA Tennis Matches O p e n to Contestants The annual tennis tournament sponsored by WAA is now open to participants. All those wishing to e n t e r should either contact Mary Domann, '44, or Nora Giavelli, '44 tennis captains or sign up on the WAA bulletin board. Eight girls have already entered the contest. Last year the victory of Flo G a r fall, Soph class president, marked the first completed tennis t o u r n a ment since HJ37. Garfall and Giavelli, last year's r u n n e r - u p , are both in eompetion again. As usual the matches will be played on the Washington Park courts, Games will begin as soon as possible.

Nominations for Officers Made Yesterday Noon Myskania has proclaimed Mildred Mattice President of the Senior Class. This office was vacated by the drafting of Thomas Feeney, '43, into the United States A r m y . B e cause of the absence of a class constitution, the question was thrown in Myskania's lap. Thereupon, Myskania observed natural custom and elevated the Vice-President in this case, Miss Mattice, to the presidency. There are several other offices which have to be filled for various reasons. Some of the office-holders left school; others hold duplicate offices and must resign from one. Vice-Presidency Vacant Miss Maltice's appointment to the presidency leaves a vacancy in the office of Vice-President of '43. A Representative to Finance Board must be chosen from the class of '43, as Jack Smith has transferred to Cornell. Winifred Jones, '43, was elected President of WAA and WAA Manager, and as it is impossible to occupy two offices on WAA C o u n cil, a new manager must be chosen from the class of '43. The office of Sophomore R e p r e sentative to WAA was vacated by Mary Now, '45, who is the Secretary of WAA. The class of '44 needs a new secretary because Kay Doran, elected to that office last May, is no longer in school. Collin Barnett, chosen secretary of '45 last spring, has left school also, creating a vacancy in that office, Classes Hold Nominations Class meetings at which nominations were held for those offices took place yesterday. Lists of the c a n didates will be posted for two weeks. During this period additions may be made by contacting any m e m b e r of Myskania. Myskania also announced that it has certified the election of Jean McAllister, '43, to the presidency of Music Council. Miss McAllister was chosen president by that council on Wednesday. Forum Pledges Full W a r Effort "Forum will bo the recruiting body for college war activities," d e clared Dr. Robert Rienow, adviser to Forum in the meeting Wednesday. This is to be the theme emphasized throughout the year. Dr, Rienow in his introductory speech, also announced that all members are e x pected to make use of Forum's democratic organization by presenting and discussing their individual opinions and ideas. Robert Bartman, Koherl Rienow '43, followed wilh an appeal for radio research workers. A lisl for recruits will be posted on the bulletin hoard. trodueed Rhona Ryan, '44, who r e Shirley Win-/., Speaker, next inpurled the general trend of her conversation with Vladimir PchelArmy and his It! intsev of tli Interpreter. Information on Soviet education dominated her speech. The newly instigated Rumor Clinic was given a completely d e tailed explanation by Rita Mickey, David Slavin, '43, read a short article from the New York Times in regard to the monopoly that the social science's have in school c u r riculum. S u n n s Cooper, '45, suggested that Forum sponsor a college participation in the American-Soviet F r i e n d ship Drive, which was initiated by Wendell Willkie. Miss Helena Gin-Chiu Kuo, Chinese journalist, author, and lecturer, will address (he assembly today. No Tax Payments To Be Refunded New Rulin 3 W i l l Stop Drastic Cuts in Budget Finance Board has stated: "There will be no refund of the Student Tax during the year for any reason whatsoever," as a result of its meeting held Wednesday. The final budget, after debate and a vote by the S t u d e n t Association last year, was fixed at $12,852.75. At that time it was proposed that a higher Student Tax assessment be imposed for this year. However, the tax remained at $14, and with an enrollment of 886 a further b u d get cut became imminent. At p r e s ent count 785 students have purchased their tax tickets, and already some refunds have been made. Taking into consideration the number of students who will soon he inducted into the Armed Forces, the Finance Board estimates payment of a total of 800 taxes and is planning accordingly. F u r t h e r refunds of tax payments to students leaving school would necessitate drastic cutting of the budget which lias already been given a blanket cut of more than 10'! . In this event many organizations would be forced to cease their activities. In explaining why the student body has not been consulted in this' action, Mr. George M. York, Professor of Commerce and Advisor group. "The students on Finance to Finance Board, spoke lor the Board, elected by the votes of their respective classes, arc representative of the student body," said Mr. York. "While such a ruling may seem arbitrary, it was necessarily passed before a large n u m b e r of tax payments had beer, refunded." Dr, John M. Sayles, President of the College, approved the action of the Hoard. Members of Finance Board include Roiierl Bartman, '43, Verne Marshall and Benjamin Heed, J u n iors, and Nancy Mall and Kay Moran, Sophomores. Naval Reserve Officer To Conduct Physicals Men interested in enlisting in classes V-l, V-S and V-7 of the U. S. Naval Reserve may take their physical examinations the week ol October 5, when a representative from the Office of Naval Officer Procurement will be al the Albany Navy Recruiting Station. The examiner will devote his time exclusively to college applicants, and therefore students interested are advised to lake advantage of this o p portunity. The examinations will be conducted Monday through Friday and no documents or papers prior to the physical will be r e q u i r e d . Air Raid Suggestions If State had really been s u b jected to an air raid a week ago yesterday, it is assumed that there would have been a considerable number of casualties. The p r e cautions prescribed by the War Council were not entirely heeded and in many cases reality would have involved disaster. Gas attack may have been fatal to many, as windows in several of the class rooms were not closed. Books should not be carried from classes, hut students should r e move their pocketbooks. An air raid drill is not completed until students have filed back into classes; therefore, the return must be just as orderly as the d e p a r t u r e . Speed and silence must be scrupulously observed. War Activities Work Resumed In an effort to correlate all college activities with the war effort, the War Activities Council has resumed its work for the year 1942-43. Stress on actual war activities as opposed to a predominance of college war courses will be made in an attempt to accomplish something tangible, livery opportunity to participate in realistic measures drawn up iiy either national or local civilian defense organizations will be given first consideration, All scrap drives as well as conservation measures will he minutely observed, A schedule of complete plans lor the year will be revealed by Miss Sara T. DeLaney, Dean of Women and Faculty Member of War Council as a pail of next Friday's assembly. Immediately following the assembly program a pamphlet will be distributed outlining the War Activities Council recommendations lor student war work. Registration for the war work will lake place on the following Monday, allowing students Hie weekend to consider the type of work they anticipate doing, All printed information that the Council wishes to disseminate will be compiled through the efforts of the ,S'onp linx, its official news organ. Various college organizations will be asked to take an active part in the Council work. The Albany Hoys' Club requested a dramatics director; Advanced Dramatics may be able to give them some help. Art students will be given an o p portunity to express their talents by painting posters pertaining to war conditions. D & A to Elect 2 New Members Nils Hogner, Artist, W i l l Be Fall Lecturer Dramatics and A r t Council a n nounces that two new members are to he selected from the J u n i o r Class at its meeting Wednesday. The new members are to replace Doris Lichtwart, '44, who did not return to school, and A r t h u r Soderlind '44, who will be inducted into the army within the next month. Soderlind is also the treasurer of that council, so that position will also have to be filled. The new members of the council will not only be chosen from those who have tried out in past years, but from those m e m b e r s of the J u n i o r Class who are earnestly interested in dramatics and art. Dramatics and Art's fall presentation will be an informal lounge tea at which Nils Hogner, the e m inent artist and book illustrator, will be the speaker. This is one of the few p u r e art displays that D & A presents. Mr. Hogner is particularly an illustrator of children's books. He is a friend of our Dr. Stewart of the Social Studies Department. Perhaps the students may r e m e m b e r the exhibit in the library last spring of c h a r m ing Mexican drawings that were given to Dr. S t e w a r t by Mr. Hogner. Mr. Hogner \s lecture will be as near "Hook Week" as possible. He will have an exhibit of his art in the lounge to illustrate his lecture. All Stale students especially interested in art are invited to the lecture and the tea. Campus Queen Nominations Immediately following the speaker in this morning's assembly, nominations will be held lor the' MII2 Campus Queen. Nominees must be from the Senior class.

For three or four weeks the cubs will learn about arranging makeup, and w r i t ing headlines and feature stories. Carolyn Burrows, '43, head of the business staff, reminds freshmen that the business portion of a newspaper is as important as the editorial d e partment.
