Pierce Is Not Dormant;
Girls Plan Fun Frolic
"Psst . . .hey, have you got a
date tonight? You haven't? . . .
Uh, well, uh, neither have I."
That's how the whole thing
started. With all those empty
evenings—no Black Market on
men, you know—the Pierce Hall
gals just had to cook u p s o m e thing to do.
The whole conference was con
ducted with the utmost secrecy,
but it has leaked out that the
dorm is planning a major c a m paign to assist both themselves
and the war effort.
J u s t what form this contribution will assume is not certain
as yet, b u t it has been reported
simuelaneausly that it will be a
circus, a revue, a varsity show,
and a minstrel. Take your pick,
for whatever goes, the college is
promised a full evening of fun
and frolic. It is also rumored
that the admission fee will be
a mere war stamp. All the p r o ceeds go to WAC.

Finance Board to Check
Organization Budgets
The new resolutions concerning
budget reform which w e r e passed in
Assembly several w e e k s ago a r e
now being put into motion by
Finance Board. T h e college o r g a n izations have been asked to h a n d
into the Board
budgets for the year. Those line
budgets, which cannot contain a n y
abstract items such as "miscellaneous" will be reviewed by Finance
Board and Student Council before
being b r o u g h t before S t u d e n t Association in Assembly, April 30.
As far as can be ascertained now
no raise in the student tax will be
necessary. This is possible because
certain items in the budget, such as
MAA—heretofore fairly large, will
be lowered because of c u r r e n t conditions. The Board is figuring this
year's budget on the basis of 800
students matriculating next year.
Finance Board at present consists
of six members, four of whom a r e
students and two faculty.

Play for May 21
"A new experience" is what A d vanced Dramatics students say will
be in store for Slate College on F r i day, May 21, in Page Hall A u d i t o r ium, when the A.D. students will
present their annual spring p r o d u c tion, which is this year, Ladies in
Retirement by Percy and Denham.
The cast, which as usual is made
Dramatics classes, includes Rhona
Ryan, Trece Aney, Lois Hampel,
Mary Studebaker, Marjorie Breuing,
and H a r o l d Ashworth, Juniors.
Another character, which will a p pear in body b u t not in the flesh is
an Old Dutch Oven which will rival
its h u m a n counterparts for the
audiences' attention. Miss Agnes
E. F u t t e r e r , Assistant Professor of
English, is directing the play.
Horror Melodrama
The play is a horror melodrama
and its cast of m a d or eccentric
characters finds the inspiration for
the mood of the play in its setting
of a late Victorian household of
three maiden ladies. The weird a t mosphere will be a decided contrast
to more recent final productions.
Last year's, T h e Royal Family, offers
an unusual comparison to this play.
Ollicially called a "niclodrama", the
plot involves three maiden sisters.
Two sisters are mad and Ihe other
is a murderess. Miss Aney plays
the pail of the murderess.
The play has been a success on
Broadway, on the road and in the

All types of informal photos arc

of not only e x t r a - c u r r i c u l a r activities but also social functions. Miss

Repetitions of last night's performance of The Gondoliers
will be
offered tonight in Page Hall a t 8:30
P. M. a n d at a television broadcast
over Station WRGB of Schenectady
at a date yet to be determined. As
evidenced by curtain calls, laughs,
and encores, the Operatic Society's
showing of last night was received
with enthusiasm.
With the shortage of available
male talent as a handicap, Dr. H.
Frederick T. Candlyn, Assistant P r o fessor of Music, and S t u d e n t Director Nancy Jane Wilcox, h a d an even
more difficult task than c o - w o r k e r s
of former years. By casting women
as gondoliers in the Gilbert a n d
Sullivan operetta and by injecting
humorous references to the present
war conditions into the dialogue a n d
songs, Dr. Candlyn and Miss Wilcox
overcame their troubles.

all a beautifully done production of
one of Gilbert and Sullivan's most
c h a r m i n g operettas
The costumes
w e r e magnificent a n d gave a colorful and festive air to the setting.
T h e b a c k d r o p in the first act showed
artistic imagination on the part of
the designers. The m a k e - u p c o m mittee, u n d e r the direction of Ruth
Schmidt, made excellent characters
of Mary Dorothy Alden and Dave
The chorus, in spite of the deficiency of male members, a fact all
too noticeable in all phases of college life this year, gave a spirited
performance so i m p o r t a n t to this
operetta. It is a shame that with
such a w e l l - r o u n d e d production we
had to be "sans males" this year.
Kroman Is Outstanding
Dave Kroman, State College, '39,
gave the outstanding performance
of the evening, undoubtedly due to
his recent work with the S c h e n e c tady Light Opera Company, the
Alba-Del G r o u p in Albany, a n d the
Schenectady Civic Players Group.
His dramatic experience was much
appreciated by the audience. Top
honors for the State College cast
should be handed to all the leading
characters, but it's a pity that Jean
McAllister didn't have a larger part.
We will admit that she filled her
part well and looked beautiful in
Jean C h a p m a n and Agnes Young,
the two chosen sisters, were wellmatched, as were Rod Fraser and
Earle Snow. Miss C h a p m a n had a
very clear singing voice and was
easily understood oven in her difficult, rapidly moving passages. Miss
Young, new

By Lois Ifampcl
Although Rod F r a s e r has nevetbeen seen on our stage before in a
musical role, and Earle Snow has
confined his appearance to just such
work, they worked very well t o gether. Miss Alden displayed dignity, poise and marvelous e x p r e s sion in her solo "On the day when
I was wedded". She handles h e r self well on the stage, managing to
give a good portrayal of a middleaged duchess.

h >n it
was in m i d - s t r e a m as it w \ ai d
that he probably feels muci
at home in a straight d r a m a .
but he managed to work up u , nd
characterization of a weaker m e m ber of the nobility. Why did he
hide his light under a bushel for
so long? Verne Marshall seemed a
little nervous in his part but his love
scenes with Miss McAllister were
"hot stuff".
These two completed
the well-matched couples.
We wonder if Rod's preview of
Earle's attempted strip-lease was
planned—a bit embarrassing
self-composure wasn't lost.
Expert Direction
Miss Wilcox really deserves something big for her expert handling
of such a large group of people in
a very clever way. Particularly a p pealing was the grouping of the
chorus in the opening scene, the
crying pantomime, and the little
chorus dance in Act 2.
We would liked to have seen more
of carefully worked out facial e x pressions of the leads. We missed
many because the characters kept
their gaze rather low except when
singing directly to another c h a r acter.
Il was an excellent production
and the rest of Slate College should
surely turn out tonight.

those of Milne to write an article
on Why Stay in Teaching seems a
bit ridiculous if not actually p r e sumptuous. Therefore, when I b e gan this it seemed better to m e to
try to give a few of the reasons
why I am planning to teach next
September. '
In the first place, I have a great
respect for the powers of the h u m a n
mind developed to its full capacity,
I can see no salvation for a world
which devotes its whole energy and
its entire creative power to physical
production. True, material p r o d u c tion is necessary to winning the war
and to maintaining a satisfactory
standard of living after the war;
but a civilization which sets up
material goods as its god is not
worth saving. Therefore, as a person who is prepared to teach, I feel
that I am best fulfilling my obligation to myself and my country by
leaching and thus to some degree
preserving our intellectual and cultural heritage.
Secondly, I like to teach! This is
a superficial reason, perhaps, but I
think not. It means that teaching
is a satisfactory solution to the
problem of making an adjustment
in the economic world. It means
that teaching will not be a stop-gap
Thirdly, I w a n t to continue to
grow after I h a v e m y diploma in m y
It is possible that a p e r son m a y grow while h e w o r k s
that a person m a y grow in the
armed services. Many people h a v e
done il. B u t it is h a r d e r ! TJie m a n
who w o r k s with his h a n d s tends to
His body requires too
much of him; h e cannot be fair to
his mind. It is very well to speak
of the " e t e r n a l spirit of the chainless
mind," b u t m o d e r n machinery and
modern w a r f a r e r e q u i r e both body
and mind for their own technicalities.
This is a personal problem which
I have been asked to discuss, and
each person m u s t decide it for h i m self. T h e r e can be no such thing as
the " s t u d e n t ' s point of view", for
each s t u d e n t is different. T h e r e are
economic advantages in industry.
There is prestige in the armed
forces. Teaching offers h a r d work
and not too m u c h money. The classified a d v e r t i s e m e n t s take columns
of newspaper space. T h e r e are r e cruiting posters at every post office.
For the first time since we were
born, everyone wants our services.
But for me, no, thank you—I'll take

The Men's Athletic Association
Council has h u n g o u t the now
familiar sign around State,
Suspended for the Duration."
We are all sorry to see MAA off
campus, b u t it is like that bridge
we often see far in advance, b u t
which we decide best not to cross
until forced to do so. MAA has
finally crossed its fatal bridge.
Although not in action until State
men r e t u r n from their "world tour
trip," MAA Council, u n d e r t h e wise
and foresighted leadership of its
president, Owen Board, has d e vised a plan whereby some sports
activity will be maintained for t h e
male students next year.
P r e p a r e For F u t u r e
More important is the asking of
an additional $100 on the budget.
(MAA's other item on the budget is
$50 for intramural athletics.)
$100 is to be stored away as a start
of a contingency fund. This is to be
increased by $100 annually so that
when the Athletic Council can r e sume its activities they will h a v e
some money to purchase equipment,
or whatever may
needed for a resumption of an a t h letic program.
A student-governed athletic p r o gram was introduced into State in
In the few short years t h a t
followed, MAA gained the p r o m nence and prestige that it holds
today by doing its job exceptionally
Its programs have proven a t t r a c tive to participant and spectator
alike. It is not exaggerating to say
that MAA has given the students
more for their student tax than any
other organization with the possible
Let's Have Gym Classes
Even with the great exodus of
men that State has experienced
there are about ninety men still
registered in the school. (Yes, that's
true girls.) However, there is such
a large n u m b e r of previously a s signed gym classes, that now only a
few men are in each class. Not
enough men are in any one gym
class to form two teams to play
basketball or any other sport.
We think that it's too late in the
year to completely reorganize the
gym classes as was done last s e m e s ter. However, it could be arranged
whereby two or three of the present
gym classes can be combined into
one and regular attendance taken.
This will be somewhat better than
having less than a half-dozen men
doing calisthenics in the commons
or in the gym.
Intramural Counci
For the first time since its p u r chase by I-M Council, the basketball trophy has left the possession
of College House, and will now r e main at Potter Club for the d u r a tion.
The Ramblers and Kappa Beta
finished in a tie for r u n n e r u p honors
with 7 wins and 4 losses apiece, and
were followed by the Finks, KDR,
SLS, and the Dorm, in that order.
In winning 11 of 12 games, EEP
averaged 38.4 points per game, their
offensive being stopped only once by
the KB s tight zone. Records of all
sports were smashed, as their excellent pass work set the stage for high
individual and team scores.
Kappa Beta, with virtually the
same team they had last year,
played inconsistent ball, incurring
several unexpected defeats which
squelched their bid for first place
honors. The Ramblers, who scored
fewer points than their opponents,
nevertheless managed to win a m a jority of their games.
The Finks, after a slow start,
began to play first division ball and
passed the squads from K D R and
SLS, whose greatest weaknesses lay
in their inability to replace drafted
men. Despite several good players,
the Dorm was handicapped by inexperience, which means something
even in an intramural league.

The race for scoring leadership
was also completed as Hal Singer's
100 points barely topped Chellemi's
Singer's one-point lead was
greatly abetted by his participation
in two more games, one a brilliant
28-point performance, but on the
other hand his average per shot
was undoubtedly higher.
Hippick, who left the I-M League
after three games to play jayvee
ball, attained an average of 13 points
per game for the highest in this
department. The honors, however,
go to Chellemi, who compiled an
average of 9.9 points per game for
10 games.

plans for the continuance of this
year's athletic program.
With softball season in the oiling,
Intramural Council is in hopes of
presenting a league. Although n o t h ing is definite as yet, a four or five
team league is probable.
Club, Finks and the Dorm are c e r tain to put teams on the held, while
KB may possibly be able to Compete
and an independent team maue up
of the rest of the men will probably
be represented.
The chances are very slim that
there will be any more than thirty
men here next year. MAA will be

their expenses
It is expected that those men who
a r e interested in sports next year
will call a general meeting among
themselves and decide what o r g a n ized sports they can have.
W e s t e r n a n d Quail
Gone a r e the days w h e n the
women of State could get their a t h letic exercises and enjoyment in
vicarious fashion by watching men's
sports. Now with all the men, in the
service or practically all of them,
the women will have to provide a t h letic excitement at State.
Why don't we have a feminine
tennis team formed to compete with
other colleges? Nora Giavelli and
Flo Garfall make a capable nucleus
a b o u t which such a team could be
built. P e r h a p s they could play St.
Rose, Skidmore, Sage, or even Siena
and Union if they are still functioning n e x t year.
Intercollegiate Competition
In the past years WAA has made
many attempts to have athletic contests with women's colleges in the
vicinity. Such attempts have not
been very successful, yet since the
athletic program of State will u n dergo radical changes next year,
such a program might well be tried
again. Although St. Rose does not
offer a very extensive sports p r o gram, both Sage and Skidmore
should be able to p r o d u c e teams
capable of offering stiff competition
for State players.
Soon the budget will be presented,
to the s t u d e n t body. It is to be
hoped that when WAA's budget is
considered that the s t u d e n t s will
r e m e m b e r that next year WAA will
have a greater responsibility than
ever before.

History had telegraphed
Dewey requesting
that an investigation
be made of the teaching of history
in the State-sponsored
Milne school at Albany.
Hugh R. Fraser,

contended that at the Mibie school "ersatz" history had
been substituted
for the story of the United States.
Governor Dewey has

But here was Ihe pay-off. As the

that Ashworth is a CAD, one of
