The Thirteen Again
To the Editor:
What has happened to democracy?
I am quietly going beserk from seeing the large-scale favoritism that is
going on in the sophomore class. It's
my pet peeve that in the Class of '46,
the same people are always selected
to head the committees and take
charge of its activities. Their henpecked president used to be a swell
fellow, but he's been run down to a
basic skeletal structure by a pack of
females with exhibitionistic tendencies. This pack controls the president and the class.
Now '46 has no shortage of ability
—they're a talented group. But any

aren't given a chance because God's
Children, the Terrible Thirteen, have
established their autocratic little
clique in the place of control. The
one exception to this hard and fast
rule was the Campus Day skit. For
that small blessing we are extremely
grateful. However, on the whole, it
is a rank situation,
other classes have the right idea—

A line in the State College Directory reads "Sayles Annex, 203 Ontario Street, 2-2013," listing the lone
residence hall for men on campus.
Complete with eighteen men, a pool
table, and Bob Sullivan, house manager, Sayles Annex is the remaining
incentive for Pierce girls to hold
open houses for college men.
As even the gay young sophomores
will remember, last year's already
weakening ratio of men was scattered in KDR, Potter Club, Sayles
Hall, College House, and SLS to
mention a few. 203 (the former
SLS house) now stands alone with
approximately 40 per cent of the
State men under its roof.
For those unfortunate souls who
haven't seen the interior of the
"Modern Man's Mansion," a tour
will acquaint them with it. The
living room has in its center a large
pool table, or should it be said the
living room centers around the pool
table? Incidentally, a pool tournament open to all male students was
held this fall- so the pool table is
still in the middle of the living room,
of course. There's Jim Miner and
Al Beninati sitting on top of the
piano supervising the "eight-ball"
Dick Smith and Jim Conley, freshmen, are official hash-tossers when
anyone is hungry between those
comfortable, cold walks to Pierce
at 7:15 in the morning and six at
night. As entertainment between
courses, Manny Miller comes out
with his Mineola Shuffle, a combination of She Had to Go and Lone It
at the Aslor and Why Don't You DoRight.
"Happy is the day when the Annex gets its pay." At the beginning
of the year, poker was the favorite
pastime of equalizing those what
has with those what hasn't. A
Communistic system of share and
share alike is now in order, what
with Christmas holidays and the
usual empty jeans drawing near.
"If one fellow has the money, we
eat," is the motto.
Art Kaufman's '32 Chevrolet affectionately dubbed "Queen Vickie"
tarries the weight of many a nightly visit to the Boul. Before starting
on their nocturnal life, all the men
rush for one of Clyde Cook's sport
coats and Mark Blunt's red, white,
and blue tie.
Former State men now in the
Service have popped in now and
then to be welcomed by McFeeley,
Russell, and Sullivan. George Kunz,
Pete Porcino, Clancy, Oarr, Ed. Holstein and Dale Wood are a few of
the visitors to the home of the
low end of the 15:1 ratio.
