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.

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.

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.

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.

A miniature World War II will be
waged in Page Hall in assembly today as four of the United Nation's
active servicemen congregate to recount their harrowing experience on
the various battlegrounds of Europe
and Asia.
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.

W e Have Before Us . . . .
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.
Where, O h Where
The time has come to say something about it,
We mean the state of things at State— in short,
the people. T h e sum and substance ol the

The Ireshiuen
wouldn't notice it, but we pily an alumnus
returning to his old haunts.
The Commons is closed. Thai may account
for some ol it. But there's still the Annex, not
to mention the I'. O. Last year you couldn't
turn around without running into hall a do/en
people;. A sad reversal has taken place. Where,
we'd like lo know, is State College hibernating?
Conic on, upperclassinen, snap out of ii. I'm
some of the old life back into your Alma Mater.
We still have to keep up morale, even if it's only
your own. Anything but this silence, this torpor, this paralysis that holds State in its icy grasp!

Stalingrad at any cost, a n d after
30 night-mare-filled days of hellish
bombing by Nazi d i v e - b o m b e r s and
long-range seige guns, t h e Russian
defenders of the city a r e still fighting back taking a tremendous toll of
their German attackers.
Stalingrad is gutted, a n d almost
nothing remains to indicate the great
industrial city it once was. Inside,
the city is ablaze with the fighting
proceeding from house to house and
street to street. Russian defenders
have erected barricades a t every
corner a n d behind every pile of
rubble. The Germans c a p t u r e a few
blocks in the daytime only to be
driven back by Russian c o u n t e r attacks at night. G e r m a n bombers
and long-range seige guns h a v e d e veloped a new technique in blasting
the city.
After they concentrate
their fire on a limited section of the
city, German troops move in a n d o c cupy the houses, if any, which a r e

T h e ruins that were once t h e city
of Stalingrad still remain in R u s sian hands. Schikelgruber the Great
still rages, and General Fedor von
Bock quakes in his polished military
boots.
The British High C o m m a n d a n nounced that on September 13 a n d
by

army units
slipped
through Rommel's Egyptian lines
and struck at his supply bases
as far as 5D0 miles to his rear.
Simultaneously, British Commandos
raided T o b r u k on the Libyan coast.
Otherwise action on this front was
at a standstill.
No new announcements

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.

This is the story of J o e Doakes—
Who always did everything Right.
He did the Right Things as a Freshman;
He wore the Correct Clothes a n d he
Moved only in the most Approved Circles.
Ho avoided all the people w h o did the
Wrong Things, like Heading Books and
Having Ideas, and, worst of all,
Doing .something about Them.
You can bet your life Joe didn't have
Anything to do with Them. Nossir, he
Joined the Right Fraternity with the
Right Fellows, and Boy, was he glad.
Sometime he used to wonder, because
He didn't seem as happy as some of the
People who did the Wrong Things.
But, then, he used lo think lo himself,
You can't have Everything,
J o e w a s real original.
Joe never Failed a subject, b u t you
Can be I your boots he wasn't d u m b enough
To get A's. Why, he knew that only Slooges
Got A's. And he wouldn't d o a n y t h i n g as
Wrong as that. He didn't pay much
Attention in class either, because everybody
knew il
Was d r y stuff for a Regular G u y .
Joe used to go lo the concerts a n d things

Located at the Naval training school a t Notre Dame,
Ed writes of the beautiful campus, b u t adds that after
seeing the many students w h o don't even know each

c a m p u s - g l a m o u r and pseudo-sophistication.
The trainees usually have from S a t u r d a y noon till
S u n d a y night liberty (time ofT), which is on the most

excellent service center there, a n d of the generous h o s pitality of the citizens, w h o do everything to provide
a friendly atmosphere for the lads w h o hope someday
to ride the waves as officers a n d gentlemen.
Ratio Unlike State
There a r e at least 2 major dances every weekend
for the V-7 boys, b u t unfortunately the ratio is not
with the m e n , "and a 30-second dance with a decent
dancer is the epitome of achievem Hit."
Don Green and Bill Dickson a r e also training a t

Holstein emphasizes the loss of individuality d u r i n g

is quite satisfied with the whole affair, and is looking

Radio Research
Helpers Needed
Students W i l l Assist
City Defense Council
Dr. Robert Rienow, Assistant P r o fessor in Social Studies, has issued
a call for s t u d e n t s who a r e interested
in doing radio research work, a n d
who want to help in the w a r effort.
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.
News Board Meets Today
T h e r e will be a meeting of Ihe
News Board today at 4:30 P . M. in
Room 109. All ineinbers a r e asked
to attend.
Joe Roulier ably p u t s t h e vomen
situation on t h e table by saying,
"They 'crud' u p t h e place something
awful." When Big Babyface C h a r lie Capel w a s q u e r i e d o n t h e s u b ject his reply w a s , " P o r k y Munson,
or an intense disgust with life in
general," Which doesn't m a k e too

Baskin, as always t h e lady's m a n ,

about the opposite sex, b u t says h e

Which is an " i n c r u d a b l e " r e m a r k to

A large n u m b e r of m e n complain
about the length of time they must

Sayles Hall Calisthenics
Banish Morning-Afters
"I feel swell this morning." "No

me!" That's w h a t the residents of
Sayles Hall a r e saying, as a result
of the new calisthenics olub, which
exercises at the un-collegiate hour

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.
Coach Hatfield Plans
Difficult Obstacles
To Defy State M e n
T h e most extensive physical e d u - .
cation p r o g r a m ever to be presented
on the State College c a m p u s is b e ing considered and planned by t h e
administration and Men's Athletic
Association. Heading this p r o g r a m
will be commando training as p r e scribed by the State D e p a r t m e n t of
Education, all regular i n t r a m u r a l
sports on an enlarged basis, and e m phasized physical training in the gym
classes. 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

The WAA fall program swings

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."

Faced with the j o b of e x p a n d i n g

those to be examined.
It is important that those i n t e r ested in playing football see the

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.

"With the war situation as it is, the

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

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.

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.

Board, elected by the votes of their
respective classes, arc representative of the student body," said Mr.

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.

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

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
