Jewelry Drive
To End Tuesday
Tuesday marks the close of the
Old Jewelry Drive sponsored by
Epsilon Phi. The drive has for its
purpose the collection of trinkets to
be sent to servicemen who will exchange them with the natives of
the South Sea Isles for various favors
and services.
Committees have been appointed
for collecting the jewelry in the
various group houses. The entrance
fee for dinner at Sayles Hall last
week was a piece of jewelry which
was presented by everyone upon entering the dining hall.
The jewelry collected at State will
be sent to the "Twelfth Night Club"
in New York City. This organization is sponsoring the Old Jewelry
Drive as a national project.

The third annual Campus Chest
Drive will get underway Wednesday
and extend through December 17,
with Marguerite Bostwick, '45, as
Chairman. The $500 goal which has
been set can be attained if each
student contributes 50 cents or more.
In other colleges it is customary to
request one dollar from each student.
However, since the "Big Ten" is already receiving money for the war
effort from members of the College,
the minimum student contribution
for Campus Chest has been kept
at 50 cents as in previous years.
Group Houses, Commuters
The president of each group house
will be in charge of the drive for
that respective group, several students in the house acting as assistants. To reach the commuters, approximately thirty of the students
who commute will contact their own
group for contributions.
Inasmuch as the faculty is reached
by the Albany Community Chest,
they will not be solicited by Campus
Chest, but a form letter will be sent
to them.
There will be competition between
Sayles and Pierce Halls, and any
group house which achieves a 100%
contribution will have its name
placed on an Honor Roll. All departmental clubs, religious organizations, and sororities will be asked
for donations as well as the four
classes of the student body.
Miss Bostwick is assisted by the
following Juniors: Leah Tischler,
Publicity; Margaret Dee, Faculty
Letters; Jean Winyall, Group Contributions; Mary Now, Progress of
The total amount received in the
drive will be given to the National
War Chest which in turn will apportion the money among various organizations such as Infantile Paralysis, Tuberculosis. Greek, Chinese,
and Russian relief, and Bundles for
Last year's Campus Chest goal was
also $500, but the returns failed to
attain more than the $325 mark, in
spite of tin; tremendous increase in
war needs.
Mis Bostwick emphasizes, "Those
students who contribute to the Campus Chest will not be solicited by
any outside organization.
cents Is a relatively small amount,
for if each student were asked to
contribute to every organization,
the amount spent would greatly exceed what Campus Chest is requesting this year."
Assisting Miss Bostwick on the
central committee are Eunice Baird,
Ada Snyder, and Patricia Latimer,
Seniors, and Barbara Put nam, '45.
Dr. Ellen C. Stokes, Dean of Women,
is faculty adviser.
Sophomores Plan
As a pre-holiday social event, and
contribution to the war effort, the
Class of 1946 will present an AuctionDance on Saturday, December 11,
at 8 P.M. in the Commons. General
auctioning will begin at 9 P.M.
This affair is the first of (.lie two
major war projects which the Sophomores are conducting for the United
War Effort as outlined in Rivalry
Rules, Section C.
This year, for the first time, ten
rivalry points will be awarded to the
class which is most successful in its
United War Effort. Judges will determine the winner on the basis of
interest, class participation and
Objects of interest and value to
the student body will be auctioned.
Included in the auction will be such
items as clothes, jewelry, pictures,
books, and articles from the Co-op.
The main attraction, however, will
be the auction of men for dancing.
Fifteen men will lend themselves to
the women of State for an hour of
dancing at a price ranging from one
cent up. General auctioning will
begin at 9 P.M. There will be a $25
War Bond given away, along with
dancing, booths, and refreshments as
additional features, Helen Slack, as

Speech W i l l Launch
Campus Chest Drive
Alexandra Feldmahn, Assistant
Executive Secretary of the World
Student Service Fund, will speak
today in Assembly. Her purpose
here this morning is to point out to
the students the possibility of coordinating college fund-raising activities with the united national
drives. Her speech today is the introduction to the official opening
of the Campus Chest Drive which
begins Wednesday.
Miss Feldmahn, a Russian, came
from Russia about three years ago
at which time she enrolled as a
Junior in Pembroke College, graduating in 1942. She here received
the Student Government Association
award for the girl making the most
outstanding contribution to the life
of the college.
Before coming to America, Miss
Feldmahn attended the American
College of Sofia for two years. Her
varied experiences in college life
make her unusually well-fitted to
talk to a group of college students
while her life in war-torn Europe
enables her to understand student
problems in war-time.
The World Student Service Fund
writes of Miss Feldmahn: "Her fine,
strong and unselfish sense of values,
her organizational ability and her
experience and gift as a speaker fit
her exceptionally well to interpret
to American students the cause of
World Student Relief."
After Miss Feldmahn's speech, the
business of the meeting will take
place. The proposed two amendments introduced two weeks ago will
be voted upon. The one amendment
concerns changing the Board of
Audit and Control back to the old
name, the Finance Board, and the
second provides for an appropriation
of $10 to be used in buying linoleum
to be placed beneath the coke

War Activties
War Activities Council is now organizing the various groups in which
students enrolled on or before Nov.
12. Although sewing or knitting cannot be carried on at present, the
Council will have substitutes for
them so that every student may participate in some war work.
There is also an urgent need for
office workers at the Russian War
Relief headquarters. Those people
interested in either Surgical Dressings or R.W.R. should consult the
bulletin board outside the Dean of
Women's office for directions. They
should lot War Council know about
this outside work in order that a
record may be kept.
Plans have been made by War
Activities Council for the State Fair
—the first of the Big Ten for the
new year. All group houses have
been notified so that work may begin
soon. Any group on campus which
is not included in the houses may
also participate, should they so
The State Fair was inaugurated
last year, and proved to be a success.
Each group house took part in the
event by having a concession. This
provided a great deal of fun for
everyone, in addition to securing
funds for War Activities Council.
The sorority rushing season will
reach its climax with Buffet Supper
tonight from 6 P.M. to 9 P.M. and
Formal Dinner tomorrow evening
from 7 P.M. to 11:30 P.M.
Formal invitations to these affairs
were sent out on the Monday preceding Thanksgiving vacation. The
190 Invitations sent out were distributed among 120 girls.
Frosh To Be Escorted
According to information released
by Helen Brucker, '44, President of
Inter-Sorority Council, the Buffet
Supper and Formal Dinner will
follow the same procedure as last
year. Sorority girls will call for
freshmen for Formal Dinner, and
accompany them home after it.
Silent Period will be lifted for
these occasions. In keeping with the
policy of the last two years, no
decorations of any sort will be allowed.
Sororities To Submit Lists
The rules concerning bidding are
also similiar to those of last year.
Each sorority must hand in a list of
the girls whom they are willing to
accept for pledgeship by 9 o'clock
Monday morning. Blanks will be
sent to all freshmen women through
the Student Mail on Monday morning. On these cards the freshmen
will list the sororities they wish to
join, in order of preference. The
cards must be returned to the office
of the Dean of Women by noon,
Hills To Be Sent Monday
After comparing the freshmen
preferences with the lists handed in
by sororities, Dr. Ellen C. Stokes,
Dean of Women, will send lists of
names of girls who may be pledged
to the sorority presidents by 5 P.M,
Bids will be mailed out Monday
night to girls living in group houses,
and the commuters' bids will be sent
via Student Mall.
When the pledges assemble at the
sorority houses on Tuesday at 5:30
P.M., the Silent Period will officially
come to a close.
According to the policy set two
years ago, each group may pledge no
more than fifteen members of the
freshmen class, and the pledgeship
may be extended for one year.

throughout the year, but for the
Junior and Sophomore classes, the
fifteen maximum must not be exceeded. This is because the fifteen

Whither To Go: P. O. or Commons?
Debate On Culture Will Decide
by Joan Borbrich
"Tomorrow and tomorrow and
tomorrow . . . . "
Yesterday it was Rome and before
that Greece! Where is the Golden
Age ol today and tomorrow? With
the passing of centuries, the center
of culture has darted from one
nation to another with amazing
rapidity. Several hundred years ago,
this sparkling gem this progressive
and brilliant metropolis—was lost to
the world. It has remained in hiding. Philosophers, doctors, artists,
poets, writers—all have pondered,
argued, and given their views. And
now, finally, it is to be settled!
The P.O. us, the Oommonn an the
Center of Culture will bo dismissed,
argued and fought over In a mock
debate to be held next Thursday
night, at 7:30 P.M. in Room 20.
Sunna Cooper, "Kippy" Marsh, and
Bert Kiley will uphold the honor of
the P.O. with Kiley up for rebuttal
while the Commons will be defend-
ed by Elaine Drooz, Lucille Kenney,
and Rhona Ryan Miss Ryan opposing Kiley as rebuttal speaker.
Will it be safe to enter Room 20
on that fatal night? Well, enter at
your own risk! Anything can happen . . .
Of course, there are good arguments on both sides. The Commons,
in its throe staunch followers, will
be represented by the Music Council,
the Ped and the Primer some of
the most cultural activities In State
but then the P.O. is peopled with
the world of tomorrow's ethereal
poets and "stream of consciousness"
writers! (In fact, as any P.O. fan
will tell you, all the worthwhile
writing of the past decade or so
has flowed from the mighty portals
of what is now known us the P.O.!)
But there! Awuy with all suppositious and fearful hopes, The
time has come when all will be
made clear. Thursday night the
new center of culture will makes Its
official debut!

The past year has wrought many changes at

the men of the college had begun to leave, slowly,
