Sophs Threaten Frosh on Rivalry; Juniors Come to Rescue of 46 By a Sophomore "And the condemned men ate a hearty meal." This epitaph will soon find a new meaning within tlie hallowed halls of State, so declared Flo Garfall at a meeting of the Class of '45 a week ago yesterday. For, my dear little frosh, you are to be battling for your very lives in a precious few weeks! And you are to be feted once more before the "Reds" begin to mop the floor. One week from today the Sophomore will hold their annual reception for the "greenhorns". At this time the two rival classes will have the opportunity to look over the opposition and plan their methods of attack. As in the past, the '46'ers will also have Myskanla inform them of the traditions of the college and the inter-class rivalry rules. How well will they learn the true facts about the "unknown"! The day before Campus Day, which will be on October 17th this year, will mark the opening of "new business on hand—to be disposed of quickly and completely." The feature event of the men's division will be the treating of the frosh to a "little game of musclerelaxing", commonly known about the school as pushball. The next afternoon the Sophs will provide a final resting place for those who still remain, on the football battle field. So frosh beware! In the meantime you are cordially invited to assemble your forces, make your few last acquaintances, order a Tooy-Tombstone by simply sending tL ' n l ) 0 X t()PH and l n e name of your next of kin to any member of the class of '45, and wait. The "Crimson Tide" will see that you are welcomed to Inter-Class Hivalrv in more ways than are proscribed in your handbook. Hollywood Barber Shop 210 t'on I nil Avenue ALBANY, N. Y. By a Junior Hey there frosh!! It's your turn to launch a blitzkrieg on those gay but foolish sophomores. We did it last year and we mopped the halls of State, rolled the grass in front of Page Hall, and collected a few pairs of trousers. Only this year, we think that you should go a step further and dunk a few of them in the icy waters of Washington Park Lake. From the looks of your class, it's a cinch. You have the brains and you have the brawn, while the sophs are a different type. They're too heavy for light work and too light for heavy work. Let us give you a few bints on how to beat those cocky sophs. When you get into the pushball game, grab their ears, they're large enough. Hit 'em hard; they'll fold up like an old beach chair. Then, while they're dazzled by this display of force, roll that large pill over them and over the goal lino. All you have to do in the football game Is to hit 'em hard and low, and you can breeze over them with the grace and ease that we did. Since they warble like a chorus of frogs on u sultry summer night, you will sound like nightingales in comparison at the song contest. They are all very tongue-tied and inexpressive when it comes to debate, so just stand up there and give a fair argument and you will clinch it, As for stunts, their skits remind one of a bunch of ham actors doing thoir strut. Just put on a peppy stunt and you will have them bowing their heads in shame. And so, frosh, while we hold no bitterness in our hearts for the Sophs only pity; our patience is about exhausted by their wise ways and cracks. We want you to knock their ears down and win for good old '4(1. We, your sister class are backing you all the way, so go to it. It's all yours. Z-443 From where we sit, viewing the sports parade, WAA has missed the boat regarding the tennis tournament, School has been in session more than two weeks and still the tourney hasn't begun, We realize that the weather has been bad, but there have been some good days on which matches could have been played. The fall tennis season in Albany is so short that no more time should be lost. So, come on, WAA, get on the ball. The interest shown in last year's successfully completed tournament and in this year's tourney by the number of those signed up for it, warrants immediate playoffs. We'd like to see last year's newly begun record of a finished tourney unbroken. Short of the Week People never appreciate what others do for them. We of the sports department don't ask for praise, however, we want you to know the lengths to which we go to bring you the true facts about WAA and its sports. Two members of the sports staff volunteered to go riding last Saturday. Everything went smoothly as they jogged along over hill and dale until Byrne fell off the horse. She claims that she jumped—but we know that ain't . so. After standing up through her noon meal, she said—quote—Holy Joe, do the WAA girls do this every week? So you can see that we don't just sit around all the time but really participate in the activities offered by WAA. Ride at the Range Riding is fun and grand exercise. It is, perhaps, the most expensive sport on WAA's list since it costs one dollar an hour. But if you go ten times, WAA gives you a five dollar refund. This reduces the charge to fifty cents an hour, a small sum for the pleasure you receive. WAA riding is done at The Ranch on Colto handle, yet spirited. If you've vin Avenue. Their horses are easy never been on a horse, ask for Silver Queen, a gentle mare, shaped like a blimp, with a gait like a milk-wagon horse. The bridle path wends its way through meadows and woods, backyards and chicken runs, across four-strip highways and along the main line of the Central. And you're accompanied by a MAN—age 15, name Bill. Each week we, the members of the Woman's Sports Staff, are going to try another of the sports offered to the women of the college. Watch for our amazing real-life adventures—to be continued next week. Seriously though, let's get out there and back WAA. In these times we should all be as physically lit as possible. Anyone whose stamina is low cannot meet the demands that the war will bring. Five Will Seek Title of Queen For Campus Day Freshmen to Nominate Officers at Orientation ALBANY NEW YORK, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1942 Soph Plays Tarzan Role In Hair-Raising Escapade Oh, "He floats through the air with the greatest of ease." Who? Anyone in stagecraft will tell you —it's Dan Regan. It's this-a-way. Dan and four others were sent up into the loft after an imitation fireplace. They attached pulleys and lowered it with breathtaking precision. Soon, fellow students from below saw a figure swinging out into space a la Tarzan. It was Dan. Everything would probably have worked out perfectly if the pulley hadn't got stuck half way down. Have you ever dangled in space for about 15 minutes? Somehow, Dan feels it was worth the nerve-wracking tension —just to hear Miss Hopkins sympathetically inquire, "Do you REALIZE you might have broken that fireplace?" Five girls will vie for the title of Campus Queen, 1942 model, Myskania stated today. Elizabeth Barden, Psi Gamma, Emily Blasiar, Kappa Delta, Dorothy Cox, Chi Sigma Theta, Shirley Eastman, Kappa Delta, and Mildred Mattice, Kappa Delta, are the five nominees. Myskania will supervise voting in the Commons Monday, not only for Campus Queen, but also for those class offices which were vacated for various reasons. Five Nominees Five is the traditional number of nominees for the Campus Queen honor. The only exception to this being two years ago when an unprecedented tie resulted in six girls being nominated.

This is the last big reception this year for the honored freshmen, and in past years has been one of the most entertaining. Flo Garfall, President of the Class of '45, will open the program with a short speech of welcome, to be delivered from the stage. Myskania will also be seated on the stage, robed in the traditional black gowns and caps. Music Council will enter a new field when it produces on December 10 a musical comedy written, directed by and starring college students. Final details are not yet complete, but the main plans have been approved. This is the first time anything of this kind has been attempted by the Council.

To gather material for the venture, Mary Studebaker, '44, in charge of the affair, announces a research staff is needed. The job of this staff will be to collect facts on college life here during the last decade of the last century. After enough material has been gathered a writing committee will start work on the show. Members of Operatic Society and freshmen who are trying out for Music Council are especially urged to help gather material. Miss Studebaker states, "After research is completed, try-outs for parts in the musical will be held, but nothing can be done until we have the material gathered," She further stated that these try-outs will be open to every student. Rehearsals will begin as soon as a story and music have been decided upon. Miss Studebaker points out that, inasmuch as this is a new venture, every student should get behind it and help make it a success.

Class Elections In Commons Today Named Deadline For Final Nominations Elections for class officers will be held Monday in the Commons. Any withdrawal or further nominations must be made by dropping a note in the Myskania mailbox today. Nominations for the Senior VicePresidency, vacated by Mildred Mattice, who is now class President, are: Edward Reed, Joseph Levin, Shirley Eastman, Gloria Commorata and Dorothy Cox. Two other offices to be filled in this class are: Representative to Finance Board, vacated by Jack Smith, who went to Cornell University, and WAA manager, vacated by Winifred Jones, who as President of WAA, cannot hold another office. Nominees for the former office are: Rolf Toepfer, Leo Flax, Arthur Flax, and Michael Peretta. Nominees for the latter office are Sylvia Tefi't and Marjorie Ackley. In the Junior Class, there will be an election for a new secretary to replace Kathleen Doran, who did not return to school. Those nominated are: Lucille Crants, Hannelore Schoen, and Georgia Hardesty. The Sophomore class will elect a new treasurer and WAA Repre•enlative to replace Collin Barnett who joined the Marines this summer and Mary Now, who has become secretary of WAA. Gordon Baskin and Nora Crumm have been nominated for treasurer, and Helen Bushliell, Belty Clough, Florence Garfall, Virginia Greenman, Mary Sanderson, Margaret Schlott, »nd Leah Tischler for WAA. D & A Representatives Elizabeth Barden, '43, President of Dramatic and Art Council, has announced that Trace Aney and Hannelore Schoen have been chosen the Junior members on D&A Council in order to (ill the vacancies from that class. Vacancies were created when Doris Lichtwart did not return to school and because Art Soderlind, one of the other reppresentatives from the Junior class, will soon be inducted Into the Army. Miss Barden staled that these two were chosen on the basis of interest shown in D&A us evidenced by their activities in college. Tho.se two members und Miss Jeannette Shay represent the Junior Class on the council. From these three a treasurer for the council will soon be chosen. Rivalry Rules To Be Read Myskania's part of the program is to announce and explain the froshsoph rivalry rules. Last year there was some confusion regarding these rules, and Myskania hopes to avoid any misunderstanding this year. Members of the audience are to feel free to ask questions. An additional feature of the evening will be the singing of the Alma Mater by bothclasses. The highlight of the program will be the presentation of the sophomore skit, an annual event. The plot of the skit has been kept secret, but the sophomores have revealed that they have an all-star cast, including Nora Giavelli, Sunna Cooper, and Harold Goldstein. The skit is under the direction of Ruth Hines, assisted by Margaret Bostwick and Elsie Whipple. Dancing, Refreshments to Follow Following the skit the audience will adjourn to the gymasium, where there will be refreshments, games, and dancing. Name tags will be given out at the door. The floor has been freshly waxed, and music will issue from a vie rented for the occasion. In former years the dancing has been held in the Commons, but has been transferred to the gymnasium this year because of difficulty in blacking-out the Commons. "We expect a 100% turn-out of both classes," says Flo Garfall. "Besides, the refreshments are really good—ice cream and cookies." our CI uasses Plan All-State Dance Arrayed with the clashing colors of the banners of all State College's classes, the All State Dance for the second consecutive year, will take place in both Sayles and Pierce Halls. Friday, October 23, is the date; the time !) p. m. to 1 a. m. Music from two bands, each attempting to outdo the other, will provide the rhythm for the anticipated crowd of 120 couples. Replacing Senior Hop, the Senior, Junior, Sophomore, und freshman classes have combined to present the unified spirit of the entire college. In an effort to keep the price at a level attainable to ull of State's men, bids have been fixed at the low price of $1.05, including tax. Following lust year's precedence and as an udded economy, the dance will be semi-formal, sparing the man from the expence of securing tuxedos. In accordance with-the War Activities Council's suggestion that expenses be kept ut u minimum, faculty members will receive invitations through personal handwritten notes from the dance committee chairman, Mildred Mattice, '43. Representing the Junior Class on the committee is Richmond Young, while arrangements for the bands will be made by Florence Garfall, '45. Mdii STATE COLt£<3e NEWS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER iHt.

The clays which were characterized by freshmen-sophomore rivalry in its wildest, must unrestrained forms are gone—perhaps forever, bin at least "for' the duration." Such frivolity has no place in an institution for higher learning while our country is at war. But rivalry will go on—with some of the events changed, but it will continue. T h e question now before its' is, what to substitute for the mascot and banner hunts which were discontinued and which counted 10 points. It has been suggested that rivalry points be awarded to the class contributing most to the war effort—in various ways, among which is the buying of war bonds and stamps. Diverting enthusiasm for rivalry into productive work, work that will aid the war effort is all well and good, but the minute you place emphasis on buying, even though it be war stamps, you place rivalry on a commercial basis, something it was never meant to be and something it should never become. Rivalry in the past has been won by the class that was superior in both physical and mental prowess, and by the class with the most enthusiasm, not by the class whose individual members had the most spending money. Let's give State students, freshmen and sophomores in this case, credit lor some patriotism. And if they do have some patriotism they arc buying as main war stamps and bonds as the) can afford, Is it lair then to expecl these students to sacrifice their lunch money, their recreation motif) in order to win rivalry? Let's not thrust an added financial burden on their shoulders and let's not commercialize a long-established tradition. State Lifts Its Face Everyone talks about the social and scholastic changes Slate has undergone since last December, but few mention the actual physical changes made in the past year. Still fewer appreciate the L'lfori and money invested in such college improvements. The lower halls ol Huested and Draper, alter two weeks of disorder, have taken on a modern, rejuvenated appearance with their new terra/./.o flooring, Already the .Annex area looks cleaner with the more sanitary floor replacing the drab wooden one. The science department has been modernized; the heavy peristyle doors have been repaired; additional shrubbery now adorns the campus. These improvements merit special attention not only for their obvious value, hut because they were completed in spile of the restrictions necessitated by war shortages. In a national emergency .such as the one we are experiencing right now, any improvements are surprising. Thanks to tlie administration, State at least has had its face partially lilted. 70at 'pnanU General Billy Mitchell, formerly of the United States A r m y , was an e n thusiastic exponent of air power, and of t h e airplane's superiority over the battleship. He also contended that the country which controls Alaska holds a dagger at t h e h e a r t of continental United States. Mitchell was a little before his times, and he was c o u r t - m a r t i a l e d by those men in the a r m y who had not his vision and foresight. T h e Japanese, however, took his lesson to heart, and a t the first o p portunity landed troops on the two most western islands of t h e Aleutian chain. Despite bombings by A m e r i can aircraft the J a p s soon started their progress to the east by occupying another island. Last week A m e r i c a n troops moved west to meet this threat by landing on the A n dreanof Islands from which A m e r i can bombers pummeled t h e J a p s u n ceasingly. Yesterday morning the Navy announced that there had been no sign of the enemy on two of the islands for several days, and that it is possible that the J a p s had w i t h d r a w n all their forces to t h e lone island of Kiska. by Feigenbaum General M a c A r t h u r announced that the Japs h a d also been forced to withdraw on the Island of N e w Guinea. Australian troops pushing through the g a p in the Owen Stanley mountain range had been forced to slow down because of the difficult terrain. The Japanese attempted a c o u n terattack in the Solomon Islands when they tried to land a force on the Guadalcanal Island. Allied bombers broke up the invasion fleet, but the Japs did succeed in landing some troops. The Russian c o m m u n i q u e says that the city of Stalingrad is still u n d e r heavy G e r m a n assaults, b u t that the lines of the defenders are still holding firm. Norwegian uprisings and the fear of an allied invasion have caused the G e r m a n s to clamp a rule of terror on Norway. Hostages a r e being seized to force Norwegian workmen to labor on G e r m a n coastal fortifications. In Trondheim fifteen more Norwegians were executed by the G e r m a n s in connection with charges concerning a plot to sabotage the Trondheim naval base. &ioto6 €W*d @[email protected] Not too far from Albany there is a small section of the c o u n t r y p o p u lated almost entirely by artists, writers and people of such ilk. B e cause of the heavy percentage of men and women who a r e "odd" enough to think that some things ;ire more important than money and social position, this same area is one of the best examples of a working democracy to be found. In fact, there is a S a r o y a n e s q u e quality about it all—a small town banker who pays mortgages out of his own pocket, a grocer who refuses to collect bills, a farmer who is fanatically interested in the ballet, I happen to have a peculiar interest in South Mountain Road as the colony is called, because Mary Mowbray Clarke, the founder, is my aunt. Thirty-five years ago or more, she settled in one of the p r o - R e v o l u tionary farms on the road with her sculptor husband, and proceeded to work out n life devoted to the arts, but based on fundamental elements, such as farming and handicrafts. Gradually, more a n d more artists and writers were attracted there u n til now the telephone directory reads like a Who's Who Among America's Art Circles. The most widelyknown name is Maxwell Anderson's, b u t there a r e many others such as Waldo Pierce and Maurice Cantor, the painters, and Ruth Reeves, the textile designer, who a r e admittedly t o p - r a n k in their special fields. I h a v e been fortunate enough to stay a t the "Brochen," my aunt's home, several times, and through her by Itlionn Kyan to know and appreciate the significance of South Mountain Road. For this small area probably holds more talent and genius per square mile than any other comparable spot on the earth's surface. For more definite proof, I invite anyone to visit Maxwell Anderson's home, as I did, and to gaze spell-bound at one of the most beautifully unified and exquisite houses existing outside of Frank Lloyd Wright's imagination. And every stone, timber, and piece of wood has come from the road itself, the labor was given by the farmers and young artists, and the furniture, paintings, rugs, etc., have been fashioned and designed by the South Mountain Road art colony. Even a good portion of the books have been written on the road. But, to me, the most .heartening result of my stay there was the final proof that a full, rich life'' depends not on money or even intelligence, hut upon living as one wants, though in co-operation with others for the general good. It goes without saying, that in most communities this doesn't work out at all, but somehow it has on South Mountain Road. But I can feel a tremendous pride because once average citizens scoffed at my aunt for thinking thai life was more than just earning money, and that it must embrace a high idealism combined with a knowledge of hard realities- I'd like to tell you some other time of the hard realities she faced while South Mountain Road became what it is— a landmark to h e r own personality and the vital truth of her beliefs.

Tragedy, Comedy O p e n Year's Dramatic Season Advanced Dramatics will open its fall season Tuesday night at 8:30 in Page Hall auditorium, with the presentation of two one-act plays. The first play, a tragedy, is d i rected by J a m e s McFeeley, '44. It is the story of a young man who commits m u r d e r for the sake of his sweetheart, and of the selfish m o lives which activate his elder brother when he destroys a suicide note which would have saved the life of an innocent man. T h e play stars Mary S t u d e b a k e r and Hal Ashworth, Juniors, as the young man and his sweetheart, and A r t Soderlind, also a junior, portrays the elder brother who is "within an ace of a judgeship." The second play directed by Trece Aney, '44, is a Russian comedy-romance, featuring Paul B a r selou and Lois Hampel, with Robert Loucks, Juniors. The set designs were done by Miss Vivian Hopkins, Instructor in English, in collaboration with the student directors; the sets were erected by Miss Hopkins with the aid of her stagecraft class.

Newman to Honor Anniversary Day Club W i l l Organize Studies for Thursdays The Newman Club Federation has set Sunday as "Newman Day," since it is the S u n d a y nearest the a n n i versary of Cardinal Newman's r e ception into the church on October 9, 1845. T h e N.Y.S.C.T. Newman Club commemorated the event by the discussion at the regular m e e t ing, last night at 7:30 in Newman Hall. F a t h e r Cahill, Chaplain, opened the meeting with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. T h e meeting was followed by a discussion of the life and works of J o h n Henry Cardinal Newman, after whom N e w man Club is named. Dr. Catherine Peltz, Instructor in English, and F a t h e r Cahill presented t h e facts and some of the highlights of his life. The Study Clubs which Newman Club is organizing, will go into action next Thursday evening with the first meeting of the General Study Club at N e w m a n Hall. This group will meet' on the alternate Thursday nights, that is, on the Thursday nights on which N e w m a n Club does not meet. Various topics of general Catholic interest will be discussed informally by the members of Newman Club and F a t h e r Cahill. The other Study Club has not been organized as yet, but it will be a Marriage Discussion G r o u p e x clusively for girls. It will be s t a r t ed in the near future. Newman Club members a r e cordially invited to attend the meetings of their groups. J a m e s Dunning, '45, is Chairman of the General Study Club.

He did some soliciting, t h e Sophomore who went to t h e C o m mons on Activities Day. No samples did h e have to show t h e anxious frosh; no table room could h e beg from t h e committee in c h a r g e of a r r a n g e m e n t s . Nothing did h e have but a convincing line, a pencil a n d a sheet of paper. "You've seen them, freshmen, t h e eleven most important, most r e spected, most, shall we say, i n t e M - ' gent members of the student body." He ranted on, p r a i s i n g - t h e eleven, urging t h e freshmen to "gather around and sign up for Myskania!" T h r e e wide-eyed youngsters listened. One swallowed h a r d and whispered, "Got a pencil?" T h e others became enthusiastic a n d Don Kircher, J e a n Ferris, a n d Sylvia Proper wrote their names, added an imposing '"46." Clara Skavina tugged a t t h e speaker's coat sleeve a n d asked, "Really, can we become m e m b e r s so soon?" "Yes, Ma'm," he assured her, shoving the paper and pencil in her direction. Down went eight more names: Eileen Moody, Patricia Dunn, Helen Burczak, Winnie Lulkoski, Marie Liebl, Arlene Skinner, Gloria M c Ferran, and Eleanor Smith. Art Russell demanded, "Give me proof!" Sophs, Frosh Wailing— Banner Hunt Is No More It's the night for Banner r i v a l ry! There's a gang of Frosh and Sophs in the far corner of the "Frosh Roost", (balcony to some of u s ) . . . . "Soph-o-mores!" comes a long d r a w n - o u t yell. . ."Sophomores!" That was last year. This year? Well—there's a war going on. There a r e blackouts, air raid alerts and though the Sophs can take all that, Myskania isn't very sure about '46, so-o-o, for 2Vz o f the rivalry points, the working m a jority (ferns to you) will play a hot field hockey game. As for the rest of the 10 points, Myskania hopes to announce them before C a m p u s Day. A word to the wise, Frosh "Watch '45, they're really super!" And, Sophs—vice-versa! .ommission The Sophomore, taking Russell into his confidence, pointed to a Senior a n d said, VSee h e r ? Well, she signed u p four years' ago. J u s t watch her sport h e r c a p and gown at next Friday's assembly." And another name was added to the list. That made thirteen. Didn't the F r e s h m a n Handbook say t h a t n o t more than thirteen Myskania m e m bers were chosen annually? T h e freshmen weren't to be fooled—oh no, n o t they. So they left and wandered over to t h e tables. But Shirley Ford, willing to take a chance, returned. Not satisfied with her role of class marshall, the greedy girl signed up with the e x pectation that someone might drop out, Betty Williams became No. .15 on the list, and Bradley Scrafford, third boy to add his name, was the last embryonic Myskania-ite. He collected names for an hour and a half, the Sophomore who went to the Commons. Then he spent another hour and a half chuckling to himself. William Pawlucki, who didn't see the solicitor, thought he'd missed his opportunity. B u t when he went home to Sayles Hall lamenting, some helpful upperclassmen told him they might "arrange it, but it'll probably cost you 'hush money.'" Three days later, t h e denials of freshman verdancy came from K i r cher and Russell who claimed they did it "just for fun." To which the soliciting Sophomore replied, "Oh, yeah!" Re: SEB Assistant Director Dr. John M. Sayles, President of the College, has announced that Miss Doris Kelly will fill the vacancy left by Miss Irene Semanek as Assistant Director of the Student Employment Bureau. Miss Kelly graduated from Albany High School in J u n e , 1931, and e n tered Slate College in F e b r u a r y , 1932. She was a m mber of Beta Zeta sorority. After h e r graduation she became a staff member of the Co-op and b e came Assistant Manager in 1937. She resigned from this position last J u n e to take a summer job at Monterey, Massachusetts. In an effort to keep the College buildings in good appearance and in a cleanly condition, the Student Council has appointed a n i n e - m e m ber group directed by Harold A s h worth, '44, to the 1941-1942 Campus Commission. Taking immediate action, the group presented the following rules with the reservation that "penallies have no place in an intelligent student body:" (1) Smoking shall be permitted only in the Commons, Publications Office, or Cafeteria, not in the A n nex area. (a) Cigarette butts should be placed only in provided receptacles. (2) All waste materials shall be placed in refuse containers. (3) All eating shall be limited to the Annex and Cafeteria areas. (4) All notes in student mailboxes that are not at least 2 x 4 inches in size and dated on the outside will be removed. (5) All posters not approved by Campus Commission before being posted shall be removed. (a) Posters to be approved should be left in Publications' Ollice on desk behind door. Regulations governing poster placement a r e posted in the P. Q. (ti) Campus Commission inuy be contacted through its official mailbox. Assisting Ashworth a r e : Kit Herdman, Elaine Grogan, Jane Soulhwiek, Bert Kiley, Ruth Hines, Nora Giavelli, J. Michael Hippick, and Joseph Tossoni. College musicians a n d vocalists are already tuning u p in preparation for their annual presentations which will comprise a major p a r t of t h e college activities program this year. One organization will b e missing, however,—the State College Band, Last year's leader, Charles Reynolds, '42, is no longer here a n d , as yet, no one has risen to replace him. T h e orchestra is continuing u n d e r t h e direction of Earle Snow, '43. B e r n a r d Perlman, '42, last year's conductor a n d founder of t h e State S y m p h o n y , has recently been inducted into the armed forces. The draft has t a k e n a n u m b e r of male vocalists from t h e college also, but t h e Choral a n d Operatic Societies are still functioning under the direction of Dr. T. F . H. Candlyn, Assistant Professor of Music. The Chorus and Orchestra will give a joint concert in J a n u a r y , Choral groups, this year entirely composed of women's voices, a r e now blending English and Russian folk tunes sung in t h r e e and four part harmony. • The Operatic Society, meanwhile, has been practicing the airs of Gilbert and Sullivan's "Gondoliers." About twenty male voices, s u r p r i s ingly enough, are included -in t h e cast. T h e date for t h e final'performance will probably be, late in April. Mr. Snow repeats that the o r c h e s tra is open to anyone who is i n t e r ested, especially freshmen. They are invited to attend next week's rehearsal. Debate to Conduct Try-Outs Varsity Debate tryouts will be conducted Tuesday afternoon, in Room 20, Richardson Hall, a t 3:30. Any Senior, Junior or Sophomore is eligible. Each person desiring to try out should prepare a t w o minute speech on t h e topic: " R e solved: That men of eighteen years of age should be drafted for service in the United States Army." Tryouts for the freshman debate will be conducted the following week, at the same time and place, and on the same subject. W. M. W H I T N E Y 8c C O .

NATION-WIDE RAIL-AIR SERVICE I \i Football Squads Sports Chatter fly P«f« Morehetfo Football Raet Cloit Football is only one week old h e r e at State, b u t after a glimpse of all eight squads in action, we find t h a t n o one team is outstanding. T h e r e is n o squad which outclasses all other loop m e m b e r s as was t h e case in past years. Potter Club, last year's champions, w a s t h e class of t h e league then. They were h a r d pressed in only a few games to go undefeated for t h e season. T h e same c a n b e said of KDR in previous campaigns. T h e i942 race, however, promises to be as close a fight for t h e c h a m pionship as t h e recent St. L o u i s Brooklyn pennant chase in the National League. According to last w e e k s play Potter Club a n d Dorm " A " ( T r o jans) appear as strong contenders tor t h e I n t r a m u r a l Cup. Potter Club h a s a flock of good experienced players a n d a r e tops defensively. They have a well balanced squad, b u t they seem deficient in s o m e thing just as important—and that is spirit. (Remember the World S e r i e s ? ) . P e r h a p s the 6-6 tie with K D R last week h a s aroused the Potter lads from their lethargy. Trojans Heavy T h e Trojans have weight to their distinct advantage a n d so far they h a v e p u t it to good use. They h a v e good r u n n i n g a n d blocking, a l though they a r e weak on the p a s sing. It will be quite a battle when the Trojans meet Potter C l u b and the w i n n e r of this contest will have a lot to say about the c h a m pionship. KDR, with their n e w shift, is the d a r k horse of the league. Their chief w o r r y is material as t h e r e a r e n o capable substitutes to r e place the starting six. Kappa Beta and S L S will be battling it out for the other first division spot. K B looks very weak on the offense being able to connect with only short passes, while missing pitifully on r u n n i n g a n d long passes. S L S has a fairly good attack but is charged with some loose playing. Both teams are only average on the defense. Dorm " B " , the Finks, a n d the Ramblers a r e the three weak sisters of the league. All three squads lack experienced players. However, they are pushovers for no team in the league as they are fighting all the time and may cause upsets. As a surprise to many was the play of the Finks. Rated as h o p e lessly out-classed, they have put u p good battles before bowing to d e feat in their two contests so far. Incidently, the longest r u n of the campaign was made by a Fink, A r t Olivet, when he scampered the length of the field to a touchdown in the K B game. Rule Changes A few changes have been made on the rules governing the I n t r a m u r a l League. A play is stopped w h e n a n opposing player touches the ball carrier simultaneously with two hands any place on the back, above the legs and below the shoulders. The other change is t h a t in order to stop the ball c a r rier, the opponents m u s t touch him in the designated space and not push or block him out of bounds. Penalty for breaking this last rule is a first down for the offensive team at the point of the infraction. * * * This week we would like to pay t r i b u t e to a first class frosh—a man sporting the name of Dan Gillun. Dan plays football with the Dorm " B " squad. He is not an outstanding star, but only an average playeryet h e receives o u r vote as the moBt spirited player that we have been privileged to see. When a youth, he was a victim of infantile paralysis, which caused the shortening of his left leg by a few inches. However, despite this handicap D a n Is very active in sports. Besides football, h e plays basketball a n d Softball a n d is a very enthusiastic bowler. If this is the symbol of t h e spirit that lie* i n t h e c l a w of '46, the S o p h o - moraa had better beware. £ STATE C O U E & NEWS, FRIDAY, OCTOBER •, 194* PAGE 4 W e a k In Attack/ Strong In Defense Trojans Are Undefeated To Take League Lead B y Stan Glpp The i n t r a m u r a l touch football league opened on schedule a n d all games h a v e b e e n played a s p l a n n e d . The games w e r e featured b y w e a k offensives, strong defenses, a n d low scores. At the present, Dorm " A " , p o p ularly k n o w n as t h e Trojans, p o s sess a top position in t h e l e a g u e b y virtue of two wins w i t h o u t a loss. Several others h a v e not y e t been defeated b u t r a n k below t h e T r o jans i n points on a t w o for a win, one for a tie basis. In T h u r s d a y ' s openers, t h e f e a t u r e game between K D R a n d E E P e n d e d in a 6-6 stalemate. T h e excellent pass defense t h r o w n u p by K D R and P o t t e r ' s w e a k defensive r e s u l t e d in this early upset. Bob L e o n a r d intercepted a pass to score for K D R from twenty-five y a r d s out. F o r three q u a r t e r s E E P fought d e s p e r ately, finally scoring as Evans h u r d led center. Both teams failed to score the e x t r a point. Trojans T o p R a m b l e r s The Trojans defeated t h e R a m b lers 14-0 in a one-sided contest on the other gridiron. Although they failed to capitilize o n t h e breaks the Dorm boys had by far the better team. On Tuesday K a p p a Beta w a s forced to the limit to defeat t h e Finks in w h a t was supposed to have been a b r e a t h e r . K B r e c o v ered a fumbled p u n t and scored immediately. T h e surprisingly fast Finks tied up the game on a goal to goal r u n by Olivet, w i t h the aid of some beautiful down-field blocking by C a r p e n t e r .

However, the score would have been much more d e cisive were it not for frequent SLS offside a n d other penalties.

Fatal F o u r t h Again on Tuesday the F i n k s p r o duced the major attraction a l t h o u g h they again lost in the last q u a r t e r .

KDR won their first contest on Tuesday, defeating the R a m b l e r s 19-6.

Hatfield has issued first call for all frosh interested in playing intercollegiate basketball this season. P r e l i m i n a r y training is to begin early n e x t week. Coach Hatfield is calling out the frosh earlier t h a n the upperclassmen in order to get some idea of the quantity a n d quality of the b a s k e t ball material contained in the freshm a n class. T h e frosh a r e especially important this year as they a r e eligible for positions on the varsity. \>o On November 2, the C a m p u s Chest will inaugurate its second annual drive. Sol Greenberg, '43, will be in charge of the committee which includes the President and V i c e - P r e s i dent of Student Association, the Presidents of Student Christian A s sociation, Newman Club, and Hillel Society, and Miss Sara T. Deianey, Dean of Women. The drive will be brought to a close on Armistice Day, November 12. Last year, the lour h u n d r e d dollars which was collected from s t u dents was divided between the Keel Cross, World Student Service Fund, USO, Naval Relief and tuberculosis and paralysis funds. Contributions from the curent campaign will be given to the same organizations and any other worthy cause which might arise. Fifty dollars already has been donated lo the NEWS, to be used for sending copies of the paper lo u n dergraduates and g r a d u a t e s now in the armed forces. For the current campaign, each and every student will be approached by the solicitors. T h e Campus Chest drive takes place only once a year, consequently students are not asked for contributions several times during tin- year for various "causes." Each one is expected to oiler at least fifty cents. Said Sol G r e e n berg, "Although we hope to get 100', of fifty-cent contributions, the d e creased enrollment and more vital cause should prompt as many as possible lo give a little more." Any Junior or Sophomore who desires to act as solicitor should contact Greenberg.
