Mary Now, '45, and Eileen Shoup,
'46, spent a week this past summer.
Where? At "The Hockey Camp,"
in the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania. When? The week of
August 27—and from all reports,
that was some week!!
Every year, WAA sends a couple
of hockey enthusiasts to the camp,
to learn the latest techniques, new
rules of play, and to get lots of
practice—both playing and refereeing, in order to instruct State's
fair stick-wielders. Last year Kit
Herdman, '44, WAA's present head,
and Marion Duffy, '45, went to learn
all about hockey. This year, Now
and Shoupie were the lucky (?) gals.
However, Mary says that they just
learned all they didn't know about
the sport. Miss Herdman believes
the expense is justified, for the girls
do learn a great deal of valuable
hockey lore which is passed along
to the other girls.

Student Association's spring headache, the budget and surplus, put in an early appearance this
year with its debut at last week's assembly. The
misdirected discussion of student government finances accomplished very little in the way of spectacular, definite achievement. Eventually the
resolution appropriating $100 for curtains was
oassed just as so many other amendments and resolutions—without adequate discussion. Perhaps the

Dear Children:
This is your boy Bertram, speaking. Bertram, who is Director of
MAA, member of Myskania, Sports
Editor of the
A •!
mailbox commisar of Campus Commission, loyal Rambler, incurabe
Tuesday night ham, and a God-forsaken commuter to boot. Oh yes, I
got classes too.
Let me see, there must be something else. I work eight or sixteen
hours a week (depending on what
time I get home Saturday night)
loading box-cars. I allow myself the
luxury of an occasional date.
This full life permits me from
four to six hours of sleep per night.
It also permits about four to six
hours a week of studying. I imagine
I could get along until warnings before the lack of studying caught up
to me; but I'm good for another
week at the outside without sleep.
Yes, that's right—something has
to go, before I do. Shall we go over
the list together?
My boys need me on MAA. In fact,
I feel that I've been neglecting them.
The NEWS doesn't need me, but I
must spread the Oat-Bin to the service boys in the far-off Brooklyn
Navy Yard. I also like writing the
tripe. Since I'm taking AD, it is
to my advantage to be present at,
direct, and be in plays.
The mailboxes are an ideal spot
to work off my Monday morning
spleen throwing out small and undated notes. The box-car loading
is de rigeur. The occasional date
is pleasant. I love my Ramblers
deeply and could not bear to part
with them.
What does this leave? Good old
Myskania. It has been the custom
in the past for busy Seniors to put
in their appearance in the black
nightie and leave the work to the
others. And I might add that there
is a lot of work to Myskania.
In my biased opinion, this year's
Myskania is the best that I have
seen. I do not arrive at this decision by considering the members
individually, but by what they, as a
group, have done. There is no need
to go over its accomplishments;
I'll spare you that.
I find it impossible to put in as
much time on this organization as
it requires. I could follow precedent and content myself with the
Friday morning appearance, but
the kids deserve a better break than
that. I do not have time to be more
than a figurehead—and we want no
more figureheads on Myskania.
And so I hereby tender my resignation from Myskania to the Student Association. I give it to you
because Myskania is your organization and I feel that you should know
why I have taken this step.
And to you members of Myskania:
I'm sorry, kids, but I really don't
wish to share the credit for the great
job you arc doing.
Your boy, Bert.
The IM football games will be
continued next week according to
the previously announced schedule.
The Falcons, flashing a very
tricky attack, succeeded in downing
the Sheiks in last Tuesday's game
by a score of 18-6. The scoring
honors were very well divided among
the members.
The Falcons scored all their points
before the hapless Sheiks were able
to put across a tally. Their first
count came as Coulter pulled down
a short pass on the Sheik 15 yard
line and went across unmolested.
Then Read received a teammate's
lateral and made the second Falcon
touchdown. Finaly, Daly swept wide
around right end from the 1 yard
line to score.
The Sheik's lone six points came
late in the contest. It was added
as Bininatl, advancing a flat pass,
outmaneuvered the secondary to gain
the Falcon's goal line unscathed.
In a game played last Thursday
the Ramblers, sparked by Dickinson,
went to their second straight triumph
when they blanked the Falcons 36-0.
By the same means they became the
only undefeated team in the IM
The first three touchdowns were
counted as Dickinson broke away
and ran wild early in the game.
Two of the scores were made as he
received passes deep in the enemy's
territory and the third came after
a long twisting run. Then Hammond took a pass from Kiley to add
the fourth six-pointer.
Soon after, Tabner in attempting
to advance the ball was tagged in
back of his own goal line for a
safety. Dickinson gathered in the
kickoff which followed and ran it
all the way back to end the scoring.
McCarthy was a bulwark on the
defense for the Ramblers. Throughout the game Tabner and Fancher
threatened to break loose, but
through lack of a diversified attack
they failed to come through.
MAA is considering plans to revise
its schedule so that more men may
W A A Rivalry Races
To Be Held Tomorrow
The Rivalry obstacle races, a regular feature of the Campus Day
Program, will take place tomorrow
morning at 10:15 on the Page Hall
field. Pat Patterson, '47, and Georgette Dunn, '46, are in charge of
teams for their respective classes.
Since this is the first rivalry event,
there will be considerable interest
on the part of upperclassmen as
well as the competing classes. This
contest will show something of the
spirit of each class and give a preview of the tempo of coming contests.
Kit Herdman has arranged for
three races in the form of relays.
The first will be the traditional
suitcase race with four girls from
each class participating. In the
next event, a three-legged race,
four couples from each team compete. The final contest will be the

Sophomores burn and
Freshmen bubble!
Dubbed by the Dean, "Indigestible
Mouthfuls," the Frosh spirit has
been more than the Soph's diet can
take. From the first moment they
arrived, their class name has been
spelled with a small F. Their manacled spirit smoldered, as they
watched the Sophs entering the
front door of Draper, as they had
to suffer through that Sophomore
skit (?) and Sophomoronic Sullivan's slurs shout out against them,
as they fumed at seeing rooms once
ship-shape now a wreck. Now because they have trifled with fiery
spirits; the blaze which they have
kindled can never be extinguished.
Hockey is Answer
One way to show their exuberant
spirit is HOCKEY. At every hockey
practice you can see ten Freshmen
to one Sophomore. Are they so
good? Of course they have had
a year's practice and a representative at hockey camp. But where is
their organization, their team, their
SPIRIT? The Gremlins have all
this and Freshmen too! You can
see the go-gettingness of their team
in Gloria Baker's elusive passing
and nifty teamwork. Her leadership
has iivened the Frosh. For seeing
Gloria in action is seeing the Sophomore's on their road to defeat.
Betty Margo has the long drives
and the ability to take over the
field in any position. What a surprise to see the crafty wing, Anne
Mastrangelo, steal a "sure shot"
from under the Sophomore's nose
and go flying down to Shoupie's
territory. She can stop practically
every ball and every Soph. Center
Fran McCormick is their gal, Doris
Doran covers the backfield like a
"vet," Lois Fillman, their speedy
inner will be among the many seen.
Some of them knew nothing of
bullying, corner shots, roll-ins or
even how to hold a hockey stick.
But they have learned! Practices
are showing more coordination and
players more speed and accuracy,
players more speed and accuracy.
Next Wednesday is THE day. The
Frosh have, to their credit, many
industrious practices—Sundays as
well as week days. Can the Sophs
say the same?
Our goalie, Tillie Telian, a morale builder of the Green Gremlins,
is sure to be a demoralizer of the
Blue Devils.
Thrice the Gremlins Green have
tried. Thrice and once the Sophomores whined. Freshman cry:
by Johnston and McGrath
The dauntless Blue Devils, armed
with hockey sticks and sporting a
look of fierce determination, will
meet the Green Gremlins on the
hockey field—and disprove the
theory that green things burn slowly!!
Shoup, fresh from hockey camp
and "Slackie," that demon of all
sports, will spearhead the offensive.
According to one of our undercover
men, the Blue Devils may have a
tough time in distinguishing their
opponents from the bright green
field between the Dorms.
Employing the usual Gremlin tactics, the frosh have attempted to
undermine our defense by trying to
clear our own Burczak off the field.
Such refined sabotage has proved
unsuccessful so far. This is unfortunate for the frosh, since Burczak is doing a bang-up job (and we
do mean that literally) in holding
the goal in the place of Mike Buetow,
Strong Forwards
Up in the forward line, Shoup and
Slack, aided by Kendall, Maloy, and
Dunn will lead the Blue Devils in
their attack. This dynamic quintet will be staunchly supported in
the backfield by Lulkowski, Sabatlni, and Van Auken.
Seymour is in the line-up as fullback, and if we judge her fighting
spirit by her exhibitions on the basket-ball court, she will prove to be
an invincible opponent.
In looking over the prospects of
the Soph team, we must not neglect
the obvious capabilities of the frosh
Undoubtedly, you have heard of
the phenomenal speed of those Green
Gremlins—now if they would only
direct their energy to such things
as coordination in their passwork,
they might get results!!
Two of the proud bearers of the
Green flag will be McCormick and
O'Grady. It is too bad that such
good fighting Irish spirit will have
to be repressed, but remember they
are contending with Sophomores!
Flip Malloy ought to give Mastrangelo plenty of stiff competition.
Both of these girls seem to match
up fairly evenly when it comes to
covering their side of the field—
Mastrangelo does her job as wing
very well, but superior intelligence
will be the decisive factor.
Who is that Gloria Baker, anyhow? Too bad the Frosh have to
have one good player—it makes it
hard for the rest of the team.
So come out, Freshmen, we'll need
somebody to clean up the torn and
battered green bodies after '46's

The other match went to three

The class of '47 will initiate three
, new voting procedures when its
' members vote for their class offi'< ,'
cers on Monday at 3:30 in Room 20.
This year's freshmen class will be
the first to use the Preferential
Ballot in a class election. Another
innovation will be the one minute
speeches by all candidates for class
presidency, preceding election. The
third change concerns the time and
place of voting. Previously, class
elections were conducted all day in
the Commons. This year, the balloting is to be completed in approximately half an hour at the close
of Orientation meeting.
Nominations opened last Monday
and closed yesterday at 3:30 P.M.,
approximately one-fourth of the
class being represented on the list.
The nominations are as follows:
President: Betty Jane Bittner,

Forum Chooses
Bailey Speaker
Jeanne Bailey, '44, is the new
Speaker for Forum, as a result of
the elections Wednesday in lower
Draper. Betty Hamilton, '40, was
elected to the office of Treasurer.
Miss Bailey will officially assume
her executive duties Wednesday,
when Forum holds its second meeting of the year in Room 28 at 3:30.
At this time, members will have
the opportunity to sign up for the
various activities and committees
within the Forum organization,
some of which are Poster Making,
Stamp Booth, Panel Discussions,
Movies, Book Reviews, Soap Box,
Guest Speakers, and Refreshments.
The Forum Board has planned
variety programs for the ensuing
meetings. College "gripe sessions,"
information on Army insignia, personal appearances of WACs, and
attending the State Legislature constitute but a few of the plans.
Those people who still wish to sign
up for Forum, as well as those who
have not yet paid their dues, will be
able to do so at the meeting Wednesday.
Why then the chaos, melee and general disruption which have permeated the last two assemblies? What
is it all about?
Various members of the Student
Association have attacked the Board
on the ground that it has been inefficient and negligent. Mr. York,
defending the Board, stated that
"if it, (the Board) has been inefficient, then it has been so by being
too conservative, conservative to the

Against this, however, w( must consider expenses already on the horizon.
Lost year's budget was $10,824.30.
To date we are $840 short of that

"This means that a person who
has been so unfortunate as to
have any illness cannot expect to
absent himself voluntarily from
classes. It seems that the person
who has gone through the most
of the semester without any absence whatsoever is justified in
asking for special excuses in order
to accomplish some personal purpose."
