We're not calling this column a
guest column, because George Hess
is not a guest—he just has a "leave
of absence" for a tohile. Also before
reading the column, fix firmly in
the mind that it was written before
the final playoff of the World Series, in order to get here in time for
this week's NEWS.'—Ed. Note.
When Ye Editor Sullivan asked
us to contribute a guest column we
immediately decided that here was
the opportunity to deliver a long
needed apology. So here goes. . . .
Last Spring Messrs. Woodworth,
Lashinsky, Vaughn, Sullivan, Brophy, and about every other male in
State, including Yours Truly, h a d
a brilliant idea. We had visions of
hordes of men cavorting on football field and basketball court. We
were so entranced with that vision
that we actually thought it would
work. Then, like the dreamers we
were, we publicized the whole business. It caught on and seemed to
spread like wildfire. The' NBWS
carried a story, with a banner head,
no less, that forecast the return of
intercollegiate basketball.
That wasn't the end of it by far.
Oh no, we had to have money to
work the thing out. When we cast
about for ideas on raising funds the
thought struck us that perhaps the
whole student body would like a
part of it. The light had dawned;
there were no more worries. One
lovely Spring morning a collection
was taken in the student assembly.
We garnered enough nickles, dimes
and quarters that Friday morning
to finance a half dozen such campaigns (well, one a t least).
The enthusiasm we had was unbounded. Form letters were written, stenciled, signed, sealed and
mailed. All yes! The graduates of
N.Y.S.C.T. would send athletes to
their clamoring Alma Mater. There
wasn't a doubt in our minds. But,
as everyone knows, something went
wrong, and there's where the apology comes in. We want to ask forgiveness for ourselves and our colleagues. We ask forgiveness for
only 23 males, good as they may be,
in the Class of '49. But may the
war-cry of the Brooklyn Dodgers
ever be in your hearts: "Wait'll
next year!"
Three Errors
As we write this tears course
down our face, for the Detroit Tigers arc leading in the World Series
three games to two for the Cubs.
We had suffered much during the
senson just passed. The Giants,
who we had picked to win the Natianal League flag, had stayed far
out. of the lead and eventually finished fifth. Insult was added to
mortal injury when our other pennant selection, the Yankees, finished fourth in the American League.
But, we thought, the stumbling,
groping Tigers will never beat a
smooth ball club like Chicago, hence
the tears. Perhaps, with the two
chances the Cubs still have. . . .

Personal Development
Elizabeth MacDonald Osborne,
consultant in personal development
with the Dorothy Gray laboratories,
will appear in Page Hall at 3:80 p.m.
on Oct. 22 and 23. She will lecture on
"The Impression We Make" and
"How to Achieve the Right Look."
Although Miss Osborne has spent
fifteen years traveling throughout
the country counselling college girls,
business groups and club women on
personal development, she has no
set formula for charm. She believes
that "charm comes from the inside,"
and that a woman who wishes to
achieve it must be completely natural, pleasing to others, and "just a
bit different in her thinking and
manner."
Miss Osborne's opening lecture, lo
be included as part of the freshman
Orientation Program, will include
suggestions on posture, poise, expression, voice and clothes. On Monday
evening she will address Intersorority Council in the Lounge.
On Tuesday, her lecture will cover
advice on proper make-up and
grooming. Any time remaining after
her lectures will be divided into onehour conferences. Each member of
the group will be checked on at least
two traits and will hear constructive criticism of the others.
In order to give more specific help
in the use of cosmetics and care of
the skin, the Press Bureau room is
to be used as a clinic where students
may experiment for themselves under Miss Osborne's supervision.
During her visit to State Miss Osborne will be a guest, at Pierce Hall.

tailed devils with their horns veiled
for the occasion. State's elite will
wend their way through the stately
portals of Page Hall to the gala
opening of the Blue Devil Club (unescorted ladies allowed). A note to
eager males—Shirley Ford as the
lovely hat check girl will receive
hats, tips and whistles.
There will be dancing to the music of one of the country's most
famous orchestras, the Vic. Those
who would make with the finesse
may rip through to grand slams at
attractive tables for four.
At nine the scene will shift from
the rustic to the sultry for the first
floor show, styled in the true South
American manner. All performers
will come directly from engagements in the night clubs of Buenos

leading cities of our twenty-seven

WAA Plans
SplashPartyJea,
Winter Sports
By MART LIZ SULLIVAN
• Too bad about there not being
any more football for woman—they
just love that game! Maybe we
could use that new system here instead of touch football. The new
system is called "look" football. Instead of touching or tackling the
member of the opposing team, the
one nearest the person who is carrying the ball merely looks at him
and it's called a down. In this game
it has never been known for anyone to get hurt. One more slight
rule—the member of the opposing
team must look at the opponent
carrying the ball at the same time
he is looking at him. This naturally results in some slight confusion
as some of the players in an attempt
to make a touchdown, go around in
dark glasses refusing to look at any
members of the other team. Some
of the players may call this unfair
and begin to start a rumpus—but
there's nothing in the rules against
it—so all we have to do is change
the rules and we'll have a good
system.
The printers, by some streak of
fate, happened to be reading this
page last week and they couldn't
believe that the "gals" up here were
really playing football. It so happens that they print RPI's paper
and suddenly got the bright idea
that a game between State girls
and some RPT fellows would be a
perfectly wonderful idea. We finally convinced them that it would
not be such a good idea so that
took care of that. Judging from
the results of the last game that
was played, it really is a wise idea
to call off all such games where
there would be any type of rivalry
or a determination of one team or
the other to win. (Some of those
kids still haven't recovered.)
Tsk Tsk
Is there a gambler in the house?
'Cause if there is, we're willing to
bet that the tennis tournament
won't be played off this year either.
That poor chart is just hanging
there and no one ever writes anything on it. If some one would
only dig up that silver cup and
shine it up, maybe that would be
an incentive for those kids who
signed up to really play those
games. There's still only been one
little play-off and the first round
was supposed to have been played
off by the middle of this w e e k there goes a perfectly good tennis
tournament—
About Basketball
Then there's that little matter
about basketball that everybody
had counted on so much this year.
Seems as though the plays that are
being put on are taking all the
available men that would be used
for basketball so the fellows can't
come to practice. Well the play's
the thing they say, and we suppose
there will be another year of plays
and no basketball. Last year we
didn't have the men, this year we
have. State wants a team and we
could have it. Well how about it
fellows—let's get going.
Suggestions
We keep getting more suggestions!
Wanna hear 'em. Well—one is that
we have a joke section on fourth
page. Now we don't exactly know
how to take this suggestion, but the
general idea is that we set aside a
few inches each week and use old,
new (and maybe otherwise) "funny
remarks" taken from other papers.
O.K. if you really want to laugh.
Another bright idea is that we start
a gossip column. Now whether that
was meant for fourth page or not
who knows — got any dirt Myrt?
Anwyay, to get back to the point,
whaddaya think? Should we tell
Jokes?
Repetition
And did we mention how nice tho
WAA bulletin board looks—we did!
Well that's O.K., we'll mention it
again—because it certainly does.
That Is the reason why everybody
keeps signing up. Well good!
At the WAA Council meeting held
last Wednesday night, fall sport
captains were announced. Plans
for a WAA sports night and the
WAA tea were formulated. Volleyball as a possibility for a rivalry
sport was considered, but no final
decision has been made. A WAA
Splash Party was discussed, and Pat
Tilden, newly elected captain of
swimming is in charge. Other fall
sports captains are:
Basketball — Sweeney, Baker,
Quinn.
Life Saving—Craig. ,
Bowling—Campbell, Winters.
Fencing—Carey, Axelrod.
Ping Pong—Wakin.
Winter Sports—Tichy.
Sports Night
November 9th is the WAA Sports
Night. A hayride is to be the main
attraction. Since about fifty people have signed up to go on the
hayride, several wagons will be
hired. After the ride, refreshments
will be served in the gym and entertainment will be provided by
WAA. Just imagine hot chocolate
and doughnuts after several hours
in
the
brisk
autumn.
Such
WAA stars as Sweeney, Margot,
Mastrangelo and Diehl, producer
Mary Seymour and General Chairman Betty Margot promise a gala
evening.
WAA Tea
The next WAA event is the WAA
Tea on November 15th which is a
reception for the freshmen and all
upperclassmen interested in sports.
This tea is to acquaint the frosh
with the WAA personnel and the
workings of WAA as one of the
leading organizations of State College. The various sports will be
explained and group discussions will
be held at the tea. Any questions
the frosh have concerning WAA or
its sports program will be answered
at that time. It was suggested that
a fencing match be the main feature of entertainment. A skit will
be put on by WAA talent. Mary
Quinn, '48, is general chairman of
the affair.
Awards
Awards for WAA credit were discussed and it was decided that the
following awards would be given:
Four sports for one year—Class
numerals.
Four Sports for two years—WAA
Tee Shirt.
Four sports for three years—WAA
key.
The award for four sports for
four years lias not been definitely
decided upon, but there will be an
award this year.
The Council was of the opinion
that this fall and winter sports program is general enough to appeal
to a majority of the student body.
Camp Johnston
Rules Changed
The following new rules were
made for future trips to Camp
Johnston:
1. No person may go to Camp
Johnston on WAA money more than
one time during the year. This
rule would allow more people to get
the benefits of WAA money.
2. No WAA credit will be given
for trips to Camp Johnston. However, those who needed one more
sport to get their numerals last
year will be allowed credit for going to Camp Johnston.
3. Camp Johnston captains are
Van Auken, '47, and Boyenton, '48,
and one of theh must accompany
all groups going to the camp. However if neither of the captains are
able to go, they may appoint a
member of WAA Council to go in
their place.
4. All groups desiring to go to
Camp Johnston must first secure
the permission of Mary Seymour,
WAA President, and must post a
list on the bulletin board at least
two weeks in advance of the trip.
This is to insure the group of their
date and to give WAA time to appropriate money for tho trip.
5. A minimum of ten people and
a maximum of twenty may go to
Camp Johnston at one time. This
Is so all people who want to go
have a chunce and the WAA money
is able to benefit a greater number
of people.
'47 - '49 Football Team
Beats Senior-Soph Squad
Sulli van. Nichols
Pass For Tallies
The annual football classic between the sister classes was held
last Wednesday, at 4:30, on Page
Field. The team of '47 and '49 defeated their opponent, the classes
of '46 and 48, 18-12.
Both teams had a good line of
defense to stop running plays, but,
were a little weak on passing defense. It was a clean, well played
game, with very few penalties being
/Vnllp/J
Sullivan kicked off for the '46,
'48 team, and Dunn returned it to
the 25-yard line. From this point,
the team of '47, '49 marched down
the field for the first score of the
game, the tally coming as a result
of a series of passes, with Nichols
and Woodworth doing the tossing.
The try for the extra point was
missed when Dunn's toss to Thayer
was knocked down.
Woodworth kicked off and Bolles
returned the ball to the thirty-fiveyard stripe. After two incompleted
passes failed to net any yardage,
Sullivan heaved a long one to Bolles for the team's first down. On
the next play Bolles, on a reverse,
made four yards. Here the defense
tightened and the team was forced
to kick on fourth down. The quarter ended with the ball in the possession of the Junior-Prosh team.
Second Quarter:
Both teams were on the defensive
and the ball see-sawed up and
down the field. Mid-way through
the quarter Woodworth intercepted
a pass, leaping high into the air to
snatch the ball from the waiting
hands of Vaughn. He raced thirtyfive yards down the side-line and
crossed the goal-line standing up.
His pass to Dunn was caught out of
the end zone and did not count.
Third Quarter:
Woodworth kicked to Vaughn who
made a beautiful runback to the
mid-field stripe. At this point the
Senior-Soph combination started to
pull a few trick plays out of the hat,
using fake reverses, end runs, and
line plunges. As a result of these
plays they rolled fifty yards to
their first score of the afternoon,
Vaughn carrying it across on an
end run. The try for the extra
point was batted down. The score
was now 12-6 in favor of the '47, '49
aggregation. Holliday kicked to
Woodworth, who after returning it
five yards, slipped on the muddy
gridiron, and was downed immediately. On the first play, a pass
from Woodworth intended for Griffin, was intercepted by Bolles, who
ran it back ten yards. Here, because of the advantage of weight,
the Junior-Frosh team stopped all
running plays, and gained possession of the ball as the quarter ended.
Fourth Quarter:
Dunn passed to Woodworth for
eight yards and on the next play
tossed to Woodworth for a first
down. Nichols was the next receiver for Dunn's bullet-like pass netting ten yards, Woodworth then
took over the passing position and
threw one to Dunn for six yards
and another first down. Nichols
skirted left end for ten yards and on
the next play passed to Griffin for
eight yards and the third consecutive first down. The ball now rested
on the three-yard line. The SeniorSoph team, held for two downs, and
on the third down a short pass from
Woodworth to Griffin scored the
final touchdown for the JuniorProsh squad,
Nichols kicked off after the
touchdown and Bolles returned it
to the thirty-yard line. With six
minutes remaining to play, the '46'48 team began to roll forward.
Sparked by Sullivan's passes, they
scored on a seventy-yard drive.
Nichols was in the process of returning Sullivan's kick, when the
game ended, leaving the score 18-12

QnUideU (iemaA&d.
Even though the outlook for varsity basketball for the first semester is doubtful, there will be an
intensive intramural schedule. The
all stars of this intramural program, will make up a varsity team
that will play a light schedule second semester.
Varsity basketball could begin
first semester if MAA could get
some cooperation from other organizations as well as from some of the
fellows. It's too bad when there are
some fellows who are willing to give
up all outside activities to make a
promise a reality, that there must
be others who refuse to give up
anything.
Basketball used to be a part of
State and could again be if some
co-operation were shown.
Sister Classes
To Play
Again
The return game between the
class of '47-'49 and '46-'48, will be
played next Wednesday at 4:30 on
Page Field.
It is expected that the same lineup will be used as in the previous
game last Wednesday. If both
teams play as well as they did Wednesday, it should prove to be an
exciting game, possibly with a different outcome. The Senior-Soph
combination had a few trick plays
which they used to their best advantage in making their first score
of the afternoon. If these plays are
blocked by the frosh-Junior squad
next week and no new plays are used, then the outcome of the game
will be definitely towards '47-'49.
The '47-'49 rooters will be counting on Woodworth, Thayer, Dunn
and Nichols to come through with
several touchdowns, while the Seniors and Sophs expect to see some
fast passing and running executed
by the Sullivan, Bolles and Vaughn
trio.
All in all, it promises to be a very
good game so come on out kids,
bring some peanuts and watch the
game.
Worriers Bow
7o Passing Skill
Tuesday afternoon on the dorm
field Sullivan's Streaks defeated
Woodworth's Warriors, 32-12, in a
loosely played game. This was the
second game on the MAA intramural football schedule to be played.
Throughout the game Sullivan
and Nichols played outstanding on
the offense. Griffin and Thayer
stood out as defensive players.
Woodworth, leading his Warriors,
was outstanding in all respects.
McCarthy played a good defensive
game.
Streaks' Victory
The Streaks victory was due to
the excellent running plays by
Nichols and Sullivan, and the
passes by Nichols where were cleverly executed from spread formation,
The Warriors had a disadvantage
of weight and couldn't stop the onrushing attack of Sullivan's Streaks.
Clever Passing
Most of the scoring In the game
was the result of passes. Sullivan
passed to Nichols, Nichols passed
back to Sullivan, who ran for a
touchdown. Thayer tossed the ball
to Griffin for another goal. More
clever passing was executed before
each of the other three scorings,
the ball being carried over the goal
line by Nichols. The two extra
points were made by Thayer. Both
touchdowns for the Warriors were
made by Woodworth.

Swimming Class
In The Swim
If you should hear discussions
around school about the wonderful
times had swimming the last week
or so, don't be alarmed. No one is
dipping into the ice cold water of
the six-mile water works or other
nearby bodies of water, they are
members of the lucky 40 club who
go swimming at the Jewish Community Center on Tuesday and
Thursday nights.
Marion Craig, '48, in charge of
life saving classes, says that so
many have signed up, that they
have had to divide the class into
two sections. The beginners meet
on Tuesday night at 7 o'clock and
the more advanced class at 7 o'clock
on Wednesday.
Swimming Camp
Each year, one member of the
class is chosen to go to swimming
camp during the summer. This
camp is set up for the purpose of
increasing enthusiasm among college students for swimming as a
sport. Representatives from various
colleges in New York attend the
camp. Upon completion of the
course, they are qualified to instruct Senior Life Saving. Prerequisites for the course are a surface dive executed from the edge of
the pool and swimming 400 yards
which is about the length of the
pool.
Strokes and Techniques
The first few lessons are concerned with perfecting strokes. On perfecting the crawl, side stroke and
breast stroke, along with getting
used to the flutter kick, our enthusiasts are ready to learn the different holds used in the rescuing of
drowning people. Then comes the
written test on technical perfection.
After that comes the actual use of
the techniques learned — the students "save" the instructor. If all
goes well, graduation is held in 17
weeks. Sounds hard? It is. It
takes perserverance to go to the
pool for 17 weeks—especially when
it's cold. Then the ice and wind do
their part in chilling a great deal
of the enthusiasm. A Senior Life
Saver really earns her badge and
shield. At the end of three years,
the physical test must be passed
again in order to renew the certificate.
With such a large class this year,
it is hoped the enthusiasm the class
has begun with will be maintained
so that next year there will be 40
new Life Savers to grace the beaches
during vacation.
This certificate has been found
to be an excellent aid in getting a
job as counselor at a summer camp
or as a life guard at a summer resort.
