Hatfield and' his assistant coaches
are still stressing essentials only,
with scrimmages to come sometime
later. All the frosh aspirants are
very enthusiastic, hoping not only
for a place on the Junior Varsity,
but also visioning the possibility of a
varsity birth.
Many difficulties have been encountered in drawing up a schedule
for the Junior Varsity. Union College Frosh, and Albany Academy
opponents of the Frosh in previous
years, cannot be played this year.
Union College will have no Frosh or
JV team this year. Albany Academy,
in order that it might compete with
local high schools, decided to abide
by the NYS scholastic rules, which
do not allow participation in games
with college teams. However, games
have definitely been scheduled with
the RPI Frosh, and a full quota of
games will be scheduled with other
area teams. Probable opponents include Siena, JV, Albany Pharmacy
College, Albany YMCA, and Albany
Business College.
The freshmen will have a better
chance of winning this year than in
former years. They will be playing
with upperclassmen on the JV and
so will benefit by their experience.

the United Service Organization,

Sol Greenberg, '43, chairman, says,
"These are times when the money is

John M. Sayles, President of the

situation. The purpose of this committee will be to determine the actual facts regarding nutritive value,
prices, and appearance of sandwiches
which are sold there.
At its Wednesday meeting, Forum
passed a resolution to support the

take. The NEWS will publish the
facts of the situation and then take
steps to bring about a condition most
agreeable to all parties concerned.
Various Informal questioning among

In making the survey, the committee will meet with Miss Laura

done to alleviate undesirable conditions in this respect. Such factors as
rise in food prices, difficulty in obtaining certain types of foods, and
labor involved will be considered.

The theme of the evening's speeches
will be mainly the second front in
Europe with particular emphasis on
Russia's part in this proposed move
in the war.
Four members of the Council will
speak, considering the different
angles of the military plan. Joseph

problems which confront Russia today. Marie Soule, '43, will devote
her speech to the part the United
States is playing in the war, including the aid America has given Russia and her allies. What the United
Stales could do and where a second
front could be opened will be considered by Sol Greenberg, '43. These
three factors will be balanced by the

Frosh to Parade
Siing in rvssembly
The traditional frosh
around the auditorium to prove
their talents, musical and otherwise,
will be the highlights of today's
assembly program. At a signal
from Harley Dingman, '43, college
songmaster, the frosh will rise in
their places, 25!) strong, to sing the
Alma Mater. After this, the frosh
will sing "Life is Very Different"
over and over again, trailing their
class marshals up and down the
aisles of Page Hall. Sophomores are
official hecklers for the program,
while Juniors will follow the forcible appeasement policy.
Feature of last year's frosh sing
(Class of 1945) was the funeral
march and burial of a belated Sophomore (Class of 1944). The year
previous, the freshmen (Class of
1944) added to the general merriment by composing tricky verses
to the tune of "Life is Very Different". As yet, the Class of 194(1 has
issued no bulletins as to what they
have planned for today's program.
Dining the assembly Forum and
the State College NEWS will conduct
a poll on current events and student
opinion. The results will be published in next week's issue of the

There is a peculiar satisfaction to be derived from
knowing that we and our generation are the makers
of history, We have taken many a course in our
fifteen years of education, and we have studied, even
if superficially, the major crises of the world. And
now we recognize another such crisis. And in it
we find ourselves playing a part.
The News Board
There are times when we, considering the stale
of the world, reflect that in ages to come future
historians will be able to say that this century was
bungled as badly as ever before in the history of man.
"If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing well,"—
and, likewise, if men must arrange their collective
life so that they must live unhappily, then it is surely
worthwhile for them to draw from life the last full
measure of sorrow.

em Eat Cake .
For many years the Annex sandwiches have
been under fire. This week matters came Lo a
head. Student opinion called for an investigation. Acting with speed and resolution, Dr.
John M. Sayles, President of the College, announced that lie would appoint a joint studentfaculty committee lo review the state of the sandwiches which are at this time being served in the
Annex of the college cafeteria.
The chief fault that the student body finds in
the present sandwiches is that they do not contain sufficient filling to make for a full-bodied,
attractive looking sandwich. The filling and
material used in their concoction is skimpy, the
bread sometimes unfresh, the meats scanty, the
lettuce wilted. Though the nutritive value of
the oleomargarine which is used instead of butter is the same it is applied to the bread in such
a manner that it is concentrated in one lump in
the middle, instead of being spread evenly
throughout the slice. Dr. Caroline Croasdale,
Professor and Head of the Department of Hygiene, in an
interview granted to the
stated that sandwiches purchased in the annex
on Wednesday, October 28 and shown to her,
were certainly pretty unattractive to the appetite.
She expessed the hope that something be done
to remedy the situation.
The sudent body has no other wish than that
Miss Laura Thompson, the manager of the cafeteria, receive a fair and just profit for the investments which she makes. It realizes only loo well
that the war is playing havoc with food prices
and that the cost of nearly everything has gone
up. It knows, though, that good sandwiches are
being made elsewhere in Albany for identical or
slightly higher prices. It would not mind paying
two or three cents extra lor a sandwich which
would be a pleasure lo look at and to eat. for
most of those who eat here in the college, Milne
High School included, a sandwich and milk plus
some dessert constitutes the noon-day meal. For
growing boys and girls, and for college students,
working under the strain of war, this type ol
meal is the minimum amount of nourishment
needed to provide the necessary calories and
vitamins. An increase in the amount and better
planned combinations of food used in the sandwiches would furnish thai much more needed

watched eagerly for their first victim. Down the hall came Mary
Now, aimlessly wandering from door
to door. Suddenly she was attacked
from behind. Before poor Mary
could give the traditional cry of
"Sophomores" she was in the showers and freshmen were guarding the
door lest any wayward sister should
take it upon herself to render aid.
This unprecedented attack by the
spirited but foolhardy freshmen did
not daunt the Sophs and a council of
war was called. Above the general
confusion could be heard "Where's
Sandy?", for '45 remembered Sandy's
mighty right arm which had made
mincemeat out of many a hapless
Sophomore in the previous rivalry.
In fifteen minutes the plan of
strategy was formulated and the
Sophomores and freshmen were engaged in one of the most fiercely
fought battles ever remembered in
rivalry history. The Sophomores
literally wiped the floor with the
freshmen and more baths were given
on both sides than either class had
ever voluntarily taken. One valiant
Soph, thinking to destroy the forces
of evil with a hockey stick (WAA
take note), advanced upon the rear
guard of the frosh. Alas, for the
luckless Carmany, for she had
picked the huskiest female Tarzans
that the group could offer. Her
weapon was seized and she was
forced to beat a strategic retreat. A
temporary truce was called when it
was apparent that neither side could
gain a decisive victory in this opening battle of unofficial rivalry.
The truce was only temporary,
however, for the Sophomores reopened the battle in the Ingle Room
the next night. This new attack
took the form of a perfume barrage
which caught the unsuspecting
frosh without their gas masks.
Note; Unluckily for some, the amunition was Woolworth's best.
Following a new line of strategy
the Sophomores renewed hostility
on the freshmen boys. Taking advantage of the hospitality offered
them by Sayles Hall on exchange
dinner night, five girls escaped from
their escorts and stole to a freshman's room. Locking themselves
securely in, the girls proceeded to
wreak havoc with grim and silent
efficiency. A wave of revenge followed this mysterious raid as the
freshmen took it for granted that it
was the result of some Sophomore
man's fertile brain. The Sophomore
girls, well satisfied with their success, have retired and are awaiting
developments from the
enemy side.

United States Enters the War
Time went on, and the course of events began to
draw the United States into the conflict that by now
had become global and all-embracing in its scope.
First imperceptibly, then faster and faster, we drifted
toward the vortex of world destruction. The United
States began preparations toward entrance into the
war. And then the first uneasiness appeared.
For we had now grown. We were well into the age
of independent, directed action. Many of us had
planned long and carefully to come to college. Many
of us were planning beyond that. All of us were
in the position where we might look to the future,
where we might decide about our post-college careers,
where we might consider marriage.
Growing resentment
a growing
realization that the plans of none of us would be
immune. We are essentially egotistic creatures and
it rankled us to think that we would have to forgo
our plans, and postpone our futures. It rankled us
to think that the actions of the European totalitarian
would dictate what we were to do.
The Most Elemental Drive
There was another reason for the resentment.
The drum-thumpers and the (lag-wavers were hard
at work trying lo make us forget it; the politicians
spoke the time-worn phrases; and public opinion
the opinion spoken in public—was marshalled against
it. Still deep in our hearts nearly every one of us
was afraid of dying. It was not for nothing that the
psychologists had told us that the primary drive was
that of self preservation. We all felt keenly the desire
to live, to avoid the dangers of war. Aloud we said
together, "Du/ce el decorum est. pro palria mori,"
and to himself each whispered he wanted to live.
But the tides of patriotism are inexorable in their
rise, and the changes in attitude that are from day to
day imperceptible mount each upon until they come
to represent an opinion vastly different from one concerned primarily with self-preservation—an opinion
that ignores the individual for the common good
Emotionalism supplants rationalism. Each day more
and more of our friends and comrades left to join
the lighting forces. Each day we heard an increasing
number of appeals to aid in the national effort. And,
most important of all, each day we came tu realize
more fully the national peril and with the increasing
realization came an increasing willingness to serve
a willingness that in its turn became an eagerness.
We are the children of war and of human desperation. Today we are in the midst of a world thai is
life- with suffering, brutality, and bloodshed.
The Lessons of History
History tells us that wars breed wars, We see in
the texts that the nature of men never changes. All
the indices of the past point to the credo that peace
and its concomitant blessings are but delusions for the
credulous. The pages of the past are black with tinstrife of nations and the bloodletting of countless
generations of men.
And still today we go into this new strife, this nuw
adventure with an unquenchable faith in the ability
of man to better himself. In spite of the wish of each
of us to live, in spile of the reluctance of each of us to
devote himself toward the settling of the quarrels of
another hemisphere in spile of those things wo go
gladly. We go with Ihe belief that out of this cataclysm will rise a new world. We go with the hope thai
this war will be the last. We go with the conviction
thai it is possible to establish just government over
flue men. We go, for we (oel that out of the chaos,
the tyranny and the destruction, out of the blind
struggle of humanity a better world is to rise. We
go with a fierce pride, for we feel that our part Is the
one lliut destiny has marked as her own. And we go
with something akin to happiness a happiness engendered of our belief that this is the last great
struggle before men shall come into their own and
peace reign on the earth.

The Weekly Bulletin
The Budget Stands
Current rumor has it that there will be a resolution introduced in this morning's assembly, proposing
the partial return of student tax to those students
forced to leave college before receiving full tax
benefits. This resolution counters the decree of the
Student Board of Finance to the effect that there
would be no refunds made under any condition.
The State College NEWS supports wholeheartedly
the previous decision of Finance Board, It is granted
that many students will be losing money under this
plan, since the majority of the men expect to leave
school before the completion of the school year.
However, the student body as a whole passed a
minimum budget for the 1942-43 year last spring, and
this budget must be maintained.
In spite of the national emergency, colleges are
continuing their afore-planned activity programs.
Such programs are essential to the life of a school,
and State College is no exception. To make such
a schedule function, funds are essential.
College's budget today is running on insufficient
funds due to the decrease in registration. If refunds
were to be made out of the money on which the
budget now operates, it would be impossible to maintain any semblance of State's activity program. In
order to prevent such an occurence, the students of
State College must be willing to resign themselves
to a small loss. It should be worth it.
However, this expected withdrawal and a subsequent refund would wreck a budget that is even
now running on a rock-bottom basis. The fact remains
that the students of State College must be willing
to relinquish a percentage of the money that they
have paid.

The annual Campus
Chest Drive will be held

Street lads played brilliant ball in
their last four contests, after starting
rather slowly.

but clinched the title in these contests. It is, t r u e that both Dorm
aggregations w e r e seriously h a n d i capped by injuries w h e n they played
Potter. However, this cannot detract
from Potter's might.
The Trojans carried only eight
men on the squad, b u t only six w e r e
of first squad calibre. A similar
situation existed with Kappa Beta,
who, while carrying more men on
the roster, had only six or seven
good players. These regulars were
forced to play the whole of every

forced to patch up their teams as
best possible.
On the other hand, Potter Club
had at least two full teams at every
game, eleven of w h o m were' of first
string calibre. Therefore, as one of
their men tired, he was easily r e placed without h u r t i n g t h e team's
chances. It was this wealth of m a terial plus a neat passing attack that
brought the football title to Potter
Club again this year.
We also like to congratulate I n t r a m u r a l Council, especially Charlie
Capel and A r t Flax, for r u n n i n g t h e
league so smoothly. Rule changes
were quickly made w h e n needed,
and refereeing, although spotty at
times, was the best in years.
Most Valuable
Before we turn o u r attentions to
basketball, we like to present the
men whom we think were most
valuable to their football squads.
Potter C l u b — F r a n k Hansen. H e

Trojans—Joe Tassoni. As a r u n ner Joe was very h a r d to stop all
season long. He can also kick and
pass well.
Kappa Beta—Joe Levin. He had
KB geared into high with his passing until injuries moved in. He is
also a consistent punter.

been an elusive r u n n e r and consistent r u n n e r for the S L S squad
all season. Many a time he Iras
neatly evaded charging ends to whip
a long pass or start a r u n .
KDR—Bob Leonard. As leader of
his team he made KDR a consistent
threat, though not a consistent winner. He kicked, ran, and passed for
KDR and played excellent ball d e fensively.
Finks—Art Olivet. As a smooth
runner and passer and an excellent
kicker, Olivet sparked the Finks all
season long.
His playing ability
made the Finks a threat all season.
Dorm "B"—Dick Chillemi. One of
the smallest players, Dick made
some nice r u n s for the Dorm J u n i o r s
along with organizing them into a
fighting outfit,
Ramblers Max Braun. Braun was
the only spark of the hopeless
Ramblers. He did all the punting
and most of the passing and running,

Assembly Today

Dieppe Witness
Guest of D & A
Major Ditton Brought As
Debate Council Guest
Traditional soldier-of-fortune, s p e cial correspondent for the Baltimore
Sun, the receiver of eight medals for
bravery—Major Thomas A. B. Ditton will give uncensored information
in assembly today on his eye-witness
observance of the Dieppa Raid.
Major Ditton is being brought to
assembly as part of Debate Council's
policy of helping a greater number
of students to benefit from their
A n a t i v e - b o r n American, Major
Ditton ran away from Virginia Military Institute in 1914 to volunteer in
the Canadian Forces.
began his World War I feats which
marked him as the youngest C a p tain in the British Army in addition
to his distinguished record in the
Royal Flying Corps of which he was
an officer.
Past Experience
After the war, he went as a British soldier to China, India, and
Africa; on a secret service mission,
he visited Russia. His experience,
gained so extensively in the past,
enables him today to view from
especial points of vantage the inner
workings of the American and
British flyers in Fighter Sweeps,
Bomber Commands,
With the forceful impact, Major
Dillon's efforts today follow through
his reputation of merit in World War
I. In 1941), as a flying reporter, he
rendered the first complete account
of the naval and air bases obtained
from Great Britain. In September,
1941, as a n officer on an armed
British Merchantmen, he learned
through personal experience what
the Allied forces are doing to clear
the sea lanes and eliminate th.2
s u b m a r i n e threats. And in 1942, he
was fighting with the Rangers, C o m mandos, and the "forgotten heroes"
in the historic Dieppe Raid.
"Second Front"
The Major has witnessed all the
preparations being made for the
"Second Front," which two years
ago, he foretold would not become
a reality until the spring of lO-i.i.
His conception of the clock-like
mechanism of the army, navy, and
air force is all too vivid. The d e centralization of industry in England
is an actual reality to him. Dieppe
is a weird dream that is not a dream.
This morning, State College has
the opportunity to hear from this
dynamic personality, and have World
War II set before them in all its
uncensored clarity.

The prominent illustrator a n d lecturer, Nils Hogner, will come to

3:30 in the Lounge, w h e r e a set of

Major Thomas A. D. Ditton
Annex Committee
Reveals Purpose
oroup Will rropose
Bigger, Better Lunches
Responding to an invitation from
the President of the College, Dr.
J o h n M. Sayles, a committee for i n vestigation of the operation of the
Annex and Cafeteria met Monday
afternoon in the Faculty Lounge.
T h e committee in its entirety is composed of Mr. George M. York, P r o fessor of Commerce, the chairman;
Mrs. Anna Barsam, Instructor in
Home Economies in Milne; Dr. C a r o line Croasdale, Professor of Hygiene;
Dr. Louis Jones, Assistant Professor
of English; Dr. Robert W. Frederick,
Principal of the Milne School; Dr.
Minnie Scotland, Assistant Professor
of Biology; Dr. Robert Rienow, A s sistant Professor of Social Studies;
Don Vanas and Shirley Wurz, S e niors; Mary S t u d e b a k e r and Bernard Skolsky, J u n i o r s ; Natalie Mann
and Harry Mosher, Milne.
Shortly after the discussion was
opened, the committee m a d e it clear
that their purpose was not to bicker
about the amount of cheese in a
cheese sandwich, but r a t h e r to i n sure the best possible lunch for State
and Milne students al the least possible cast. The present program of
rising cost of food has made it difficult for Miss Laura Thompson,
Manager of the Cafeteria and A n nex, to maintain the same prices and
standards of previous years. The
committee wished to help her with
this problem.
Not all of the committee was
present, but enough m e m b e r s were
there to make it representative of
the views of the faculty, and State
and Milne students. T h e discussion
was very informal, and it was found
that the participants knew little
about the cost of food and help involved in planning for the school
lunches. Accordingly they invited
Miss Thompson to present them with
these facts at a meeting on Monday.
Dr. Frederick also pointed out
that while both Milne and Stale are
supposedly confining their eating to
the Annex and Cafeteria area, the
high school students have noticed
State people taking food outside
these areas and naturally resent the
fact they cannot do the same. This
is the fault of the college students,
who should obey the rules of the
Campus Commission, and eat only
in the area designated.
Mr. Hogner was born in Boston of
Scandinavian descent. H e attended
the Boston School of Fine A r t s and
Painting and the Rhodes Academy in
Copenhagen, Denmark.
After the
last World War, in which he took
part, he went to New Mexico for his
health, and taught in the University
of New Mexico for four years. While
there, Miss Dorothy Childs, a C o n necticut school teacher, came to New
Mexico for the s u m m e r to escape

The Hogners work together on
their books; Mrs. Hogner writes
them and Mr. Hogner illustrates
them. Among the books they have
written for adults are, South
Padri, Westward,
High, Low and
Dry, and Summer Roads to Guspv.
They also have written many
books for children. Some of these

is on exhibit in the library, contains
a pen and ink sketch of a capering
goat drawn especially for Dr. Wall
Stewart, Professor of History, a personal friend of Mr. Hogner.'
Combines Cookery and Art
Nils Hogner is very versatile. He
built his own home in Litchfield,
He can cook, and
boasts that once he took a car apart,
put it back together again, and drove
across the desert in it with only the
aid of a compass.
He and Mrs.

Among the awards received by
Mr. Hogner are: the Block Printing

some of the points included.
The discussion will begin with informal talks given by Mae Whiting,
Betty Bailey, Shirley Wurz, and
Lucy Massimillian, Seniors, who will
act as chairmen. A period devoted
to questions and debate will follow
and thus give all a chance to participate and offer their own opinions.

Stanley Abrams triumphed oyer

held in the Commons last Mon r
