Thomas More
Defeats Stokes
In Overtime Lap
-. Ey Joan Hyllnd
'
Not snow, nor coal shortages, nor
lack of news can stop the Sports
staff from completion of its accustomed round of duties—the news
must go through.
A tough break for the WAA winter program is the coal shortage and
resulting cancellation of basketball
and bowling contests. The loss of
a week's time from an already
crowded schedule presents serious
difficulties. Maybe last year's dire
prediction that team members would
have to stay on for summer school
In order to finish up the tourney,
may yet come true.
The Silver Lining
The only consolation we can see
for WAA is that at least this is one
thing that nasty Sports editor won't
be able to blame on them. Even a
person so obviously unintelligent
must come to the same conclusion
on the subject as did Mark Twain.
Seriously though, we sympathize
with te WAA program makers. News
that the gym will be open tomorrow
and that games can be made up at
that time is an encouraging note.
We're sure that everything will
work out all right. There are some
mighty energetic gals in charge of
the basketball league.
So Sorry
It seems as if we were slightly off
In our predictions concerning the
outcome of the league. . .Apologies
to the Gamma Kap squad for their
being overlooked in the list of possible cup-winners. Anyone who has
seen these gals burning up the
boards must admit that they are a
remarkably smooth and powerful
team. Their victory over KD has
raised their stock and been the
cause for considerable juggling of
odds and probabilities. Locker room
gossip has it that the cup will grace
the Gamma Kap livingroom at the
end of the season. We would not be
at all surprised, but still hold out
for Newman Hall's chances. At
least they will give them a good run
for their money.
Game Time
The Myskania - freshman game
proved just once more what a great
drawing card sports events can be.
It is our thesis for the year that
sports are important and should become more a part of general college
life. What we are loking forward to
with great interest is the proposed
Milne vs. Practice Teachers game.
If it does come off, we bet that
Madison Square Garden alone would
be able to do justice to the crowd.
This week, due to the fuel shortage, WAA has been forced to post
pone its schedule of league games.
However, n Monday one of the
scheduled games was able to be
played off. This proved to be fast
moving and exciting contest between
the girls from Stokes Hall and the
Tommis More lassies. Prom the
very first whistle both squads began
a determined fight for final honors.
The contest finally resulted in a
16-16 tie. I n the two minute overtime period Sylvestrl broke the
deadlock by tossing up two points
for the Tommy More team leading
her squad to an 18-16 victory.
Revised Schedule
The new schedule for the WAA
basketball league games is as
follows:
Saturday, February 10
1:00—AEPhi vs. Whiz Kids.
1:45—BZ vs. Newman.
2:30—Phi Delta vs. Sayles.

Myskania Warns Frosh
Two freshmen, Dorothy Bird and
Dorothy Causse, have been reported
to Myskania as having broken rivalry tradition number seven of Satte
College which states: freshmen shall
not wear any high school insignia,
such as rings, pins, keys, athletic
awards, etc., until Moving-up Day.
Miss Bird has committed three
offenses and will make an apology
in public before the Student Association. This is the second offense
for Miss Causse.
Weatherman On Rampage
And We're Not Fueling!
Two determined optimists decided to brave the wilds of Washington Park in one last attempt
to discover some good in continual snow. They strolled leisurely through ten-foot drifts,

by toboggan enthusiasts and lost
five essential pounds.
The ski-run was the last resort. —All those books and pictures. All those healthy-looking

of fourteen zoomed by, steering
himself with two vicious-looking
spears. In a flash he was systematically wrapped around a
large maple tree. One ski disappeared over the horizon.

Sayles Explains
Partial Shutdown
In cooperation with the statewide
effort to conserve rapidly dwindling
fuel supplies, the college buildings
will not be heated in the evening
until further notice and all activities scheduled for this time have
been cancelled. In addition, the
gymnasium and library were closed
the first two days of the week.
Statement to Press
Dr. John M. Sayles, President,
sent a statement to the newspapers
last week in answer to those who
had criticized State College for remaining open during the emergency
period when all other schools were
closed.
The statement explained that
exams were in progress all week, and
that the heat was turned off every
day as soon as possible. It said also
that the closing of the school would
have further complicated the transportation problem, for the students
would have to return to their homes
on the already over-crowded railroads.
Dr. Sayles added that our fuel
supply was adequate, and anyone
bearing proper authorization would
be welcome to a share of it.

Nelson Nullifies ^Rumors,School To Recess In Spring
The rumor floating around the
halls of State to the effect that
Easter vacation will be eliminated
this year has been "spiked" by
Dr. Milton Nelson, Dean.
Dean Nelson said Wednesday
that present plans call for adherence to the schedule in the
catalog—that is, spring recess
from noon, March 28, to 8:10 A.M.
April 9. There is, however, a
possibility of a change in the
dates.
Washington's Birthday, which
is on Thursday this year, will
not be a holiday. The Dean explained that the holiday would
be too short to warrant the strain
on the railroads which would
result from students going home
for the long week-end.
The speculation about Easter
vacation was also based on the
transportation problem, and it
was suggested that keeping students in classes during the Easter
season would further relieve the
situation.

The schedule for the eight-week
accelerated program for summer,
1945, has been announced by Milton
G. Nelson, Dean. This schedule is
quite definite as it stands and will
be subject to almost no change.
Classes will begin on June 25 and
examinations will be held on August
17 and 18, with July 4 a holiday.
Last semester accelerated students
were asked to indicate whether or
not they planned to attend the summer session. Those who thought
they would attend were sent a tentative schedule and instructed to mark
the subjects they would take.
Summer Schedule
As a result "bf the information collected the present program was
evolved, and it varies only slightly
from the proposed schedule. Dean
Nelson said that students who have
not signed up for the summer session but decide to attend before it
begins can probably be accomodated.
No fees or other charges are levied
for the accelerated session.

present Julius A. Thomas, Director
of the Department of Industrial
Relations in the National Urban
League, as the principal speaker in
this morning's assembly. His topic
for discussion concerns "Social Goals
for Postwar America, a foremost
problem in world events of today.
Eleanor Hayeslip, '45, President of
SCA, will introduce Mr. Thomas.
Engaged in social work for twenty
years as a staff member of the
Urban League, he has served as
Executive Secretary of local affiliates in Atlanta, Georgia; Jacksonville, Florida; and Louisville, Kentucky. He was appointed Director
of the Department of Industrial
Relations for the national organization in 1943.
Articles on Negro Life
In addition to a varied and successful experience in community
organization for social welfare, he
has been closely identified with progressive interracial programs and
activities throughout the nation. A
frequent contributor to magazines
anci
newspapers, he has written several articles on various aspects of
Negro life in America. He is also
a popular speaker and lecturer on
these social and economic problems,

Student Union Passed
With a unanimous vote of the
student body the final motion for
setting up a definite Student Union
Plan was passed in last week's assembly, ending a long and careful
period of research by the Student
Investigating Committee.
Jean
Winyall, '45. a member of the Cornmil tec, clarified the objectionable
clauses af the preceding week's discussion and introduced the motion
in its final form. James Whytock,
'47, proposed a new amendment
which would give the Student Association power to challenge or veto
an act of the Student Board but the
amendment was defeated in the
resulting vote. The Student Body
fell that enough elastic powers had
already been given lo Student Association to enable them to nullify an
act of the Board and that further
amendment of the motion would
only cripple the Initiative of the
Board itself,

Hence there will be set up an
active Student Union Board and
funds will be accumulated and turned over to the New York State College for Teachers Benevolent Association, Inc., as a trust fund for
safe-keeping. Pledges will be collected and campaigns held for further funds. Control of the budget
will keep most of the legislative
power in the hands of the students
through Student Association.

but t h a t is t h e general ida. Everything is r e p e a t e d a t h o u s a n d times,

We are chagrined. The defeat of
Newman by BZ finds us stranded
on a rather cold limb. The evil that
has befallen our avowed favorite
brings reminiscences of Kiley, Wurtz
and Kiss of Death Inc. We might
even be forced to give up predicting
for the duration. The only consolation we have is that Maggio, one
of Newman's star forwards, was not
in the line-up that fateful day. The
break-up of a powerful combination
of forwards can undermine any
team. This beautiful piece of rationalization breaks down, however,
when we discover that Blake and
Bushnell were missing from the BZ
team. Could be they're just good?
Black vs. Yellow
There may be some discussion on
the question of whether the Myskaia-Frosh game belongs on the
sports page. But if TGIP can be
represented—so can Myskania. Seriously, it was a game well worth
watching. The black-robed ones
made a better showing than anyone
thought they would—including Myskania. Smith, Garfall, Now and
Cooper, the "regulars" of the team,
were right in there. Meyers, of the
"conscripted" members was the surprise of the day. Her guarding and
smooth interceptions helped save the
venerable seniors from worse than
a 53-21 defeat. In the freshman
lineup all members distinguished
themselves. By the way, does Tilden
ever miss?
Myskania's provision of
two
stretcher-bearers turned out to be
more grim than anyone intended.
Kippy's broken finger and the difficulty connected with having it set
go to illustrate once more the point
made in an earlier column that
State College students do not receive
adequate medical protection.
Winter Wonderland
For the last month or so we have
been watching the little ones romp
in the snow—skiis and sleds flying
—no cares. Washington Park has
become a miniature Sun Valley, offering all the winter sports. State
students might be able to use the
facilities if they can negotiate a
non-aggression pact with the juveniles who are now undisputed masters of the scene.
Then there was the little boy who
preferred to use the icy sidewalk
for his sleigh-run. We stopped to
give him a lecture on consideration
of the rights of others — but we
really didn't mind walking in the
road.
About Milne
Last week-end we saw our first
Milne basketball game—but not the
last. Those kids really put on a
good show. One thing that impressed us about the game was
the enthusiasm of the audience.
They were never still. After growing up on the utter passivity of
State College spectators, it was
quite a shock. There are only two
or three times wu can remember
when the Eagles received the vocal
.support they deserved.
Yea Lincoln!
One more item has been added to
the long list of reasons why we
honor Lincoln. His birthday enabled Kiley to leave the thriving
metropolis of Heuvelton to come to
us. But times have changed. When
asked to write a guest column,
George Bertram replied, "I have
nothing to say." What one year
in Huevelton can do.
Tout Note
Before Christmas vacation there
was considerable furor raised concerning the policies of the Sports
page. Ah that time we made a suggestion that representatives from
the Athletic associations be appointed to give news to the Sports
page. The public may be interested in knowing that so far this has
not been done,

This past week the basketball
league was brought to the fore once
again after a brief respite due to
the fuel shortage.
On Saturday afternoon the Dynamiters went into action against the
powerful Whiz Kids, defeating them
by a score of 19-17. The contest was
a close and steady one from the
start but the Commuters, sparked
by Herllhy's fourteen points, succeeded in emerging victorious over

mainstay, led her squad with ten
tallies.
The second game of the afternoon
between Newman Hall and Beta
Zeta displayed very little of the
steadiness seen in the first contest
and at the final whistle Beta Zeta
held a decisive lead of 24-7 over the
Newmanites. Both teams failed to
settle down to their usual even style
of playing. The Newman Hall squad
rallied several times but were
thwarted in every attempt by the
competent Dunn, Diffon and Jennings of the BZ defense. The Newman guards were off their usual
steady form and were unable to
check the strong Baker-McGinnisRopke combination. Guido seemed
to be the mainstay on the Newman
defense while Russo led the offense
with four points. Baker gamed scoring honors for the BZ quintet.
A spirited session between Phi
Delt and Sayles resulted in a 30-22
win for the Phi Delts. Both teams
put up a valiant struggle last year
to remain on the list of those chosen
for league championship. Phi Delt
has retained much of its former
strength in the person of Hamilton,
Seymour and Barnhart while Lengyel, a newcomer on the Sayles squad,
adds to its powerful offense. Seymour was high scorer for Phi Delt
with 16 points and Lengyel tossed up
14 for the losers.
Activity was resumed on Monday
afternoon with Chi Sig and Moreland battling for court honors. The
Madison Avenue lassies took their
first victory of the season in a 17-10
lead over the Morelanders. Garfall
came through for the Chi Sigs with
15 of the total points.

Bowling League
Resumes Action
Lack O f Smokes
Scored By All
We decided to disgress from the
field of sports this week and write on
a matter of universal interest. We,
like all other fiends, have been run
ragged trying to find cigarettes.
Time after time we have arrived too
late. "Sorry, Mac. Just sold the last
pack," has rung in our ears so often
that we are growing just a bit tired
of it.
Rumors, Facts
In the back of our mind was
always a nagging little thought. We
were always trying to figure just
where all the cigarettes were disappearing to. There were lots of
hints and rumors, but no definite
information. Then Monday night
we saw an item about a new cigarette that is to make its appearance
soon. Quoted in the article, as an
afterthought, were a couple of
figures on current cigarette production.
Terrific Production
We learned that Phillip Morris
produces no less than 33 billion
cigarettes each year, and that Liggett & Meyers (Chesterfields) makes
just twice that many. With these
figures to work on we decided that
R. J. Reynolds (Camels) whipped
out 75 billion; American Tobacco
Company (Lucky Strikes), 65 billion;
and P. Lorillard Company (Old
Gold), 22 billion. This makes a total
of 261 billion popular brand cigarettes produced in this country in
one year. Then we used 130 million
population to determine the number
consumed. If fifty percent of the
people in this country, 65 million,
were to smoke a pack a day for a
year 23,725,000,000 packs would go
up in smoke.
By dividing 261 billion by 20 we
discovered that only 13,050,000,000
packs were produced. This leaves a
deficit of 10,675,000,000 packs a year
and, seemingly, a solution to the
shortage. But, and here is the hitch,
we haven't even tried to estimate
the number of lesser known brands
that are produced. There are so
many small sellers on the market
that they must make up the discrepancy between production and
consumption of popular makes. And
another factor is the figure we used
for tire smoking public. There are
many men who will never touch a
fag, sticking faithfully to pipe or
cigar.

Hansen's Whiz Kids took the alleys
against Bob Sullivan's All Americans and took three out of four
games. Both teams were bowling
with blinds, but Hansen's boys were
a little more consistent. Jim Crandell was the big gun for the Whiz
Kids, wacking out a single of 181.
His three game total of 467 was also
high for his team. Jim Whytock
gained top honors for the AllAmericans with 163 and 421.
In the second match of the night
the Flashes took it on the chin
from Dave Lehman's renovated
Thunderbolts. The
Thunderbolts
served notice on the rest of the
league that they are out for blood
by winning four games. The Flashes
were handicapped by the absence of
Cal Zippen, one of their top men.
Even with Zippen the Flashes would
have had a hard time overhauling
the Thunderbolts because Lehman

Motion To Use Money
For Student Union Fund
Three financial motions will be
the order of the day in student
assembly this morning. Several important announcements will follow
the voting and discussion.
The first motion concerns that
presented by Leah Tischler, '45, in
last week's assembly—Be it resolved
that: "Ten dollars be taken from the
Student Association Surplus Fund
and be appropriated to Campus
Commission for the purpose of expenses, such as to pay for keys for
the strong box. the duplication of
drawer keys for members of the
Commission, cord for Moving Up
Day, and any other expenses that
might be incurred during this semester."
BiS Eight Motion
Betty J. McGrath, '46. chairman of
the Big Eight Committee, will introduce a resolution to rescind the
following motion passed by Student
Association last March—"That upon
maturity the 4'; interest on the
$2500 bond purchased by the Big
Ten proceeds be used to establish a
scholarship fund for returning veterans or for their descendants."
The Big Eight Committee feels that
returning veterans arc already provided for in the G.I. Bill of Rights.
In addition the bond would give
impetus to the Student Union Fund
and more people would benefit if
the maturity value of the $2500 were
turned over in this manner. If the
above motion is rescinded by the
2/3 vote necessary for this action,
the new resolution will read: "The
Big Eight Committee moves that
upon maturity the $2500 bond purchased by the proceeds of last year's
Big Ten programs be turned over to
Student Union."

Robert Sullivan, '4G, Vice-President of Student Association, will
