Representatives Invited
To Citizens Meeting
The Executive Council of InterGroup Council recently received reports from other State Teachers
Colleges of New York State concerning the progress of the newly
organized In^er-Group Councils In
their schools. At a meeting held
last Wednesday, several activities
of the Inter-Qroup program of Albany and State College were also
discussed.
Conference Reults
Letters have been received from
Buffalo State Teachers College and
Oswego State Teachers College reporting'favorably on the organizations of Inter-Group Councils there.
These new councils were formed as
a direct result of the Inter-Group
Conference held here in November
and through the efforts of Dr. Louis
C. Jone, Professor of English, and
Dr. Watt Stewart, Professor of Social Studies, who recently lectured
on inter-group relations at Buffalo
.and Oswego, respectively.
the corridor on the second floor of
Draper Tuesday, under the direction
of Miss Ruth Hutchins, Assistant
Professor of Fine Arts.
The exhibit will include a series
of plates prepared by the students
depicting material on subjects helpful to the high school teacher.
Gloria McFerran, '46, is at the head
of this committee. Fifty-six plates
in all will be exhibited.
Information on slides and films
available to high school teachers
has been secured by members of the
class and other material has been
secured from museums, libraries,
clippings and other sources.
The purpose of the exhibit is to
acquaint the students with ways in
which they may enrich their teaching and to list the sources of this
extra material. It will also emphasize the principles of good organization and present ideas in mounting.
Miss Hutchins says the exhibit
will be of value to every student
who wishes to bring interesting variations into his classroom teaching.
All students are invited to the exhibit, which will be held from 9 A.
M. to 5 P. M.
Panel Invitation
The Citizens Unity Committee of
Schenectady has invited four speakers from Inter-Groups Council to
present a panel discussion at one
of their meetings on "What Do We
Know About Living?". The organization has also offered to allot the
speakers panel at least 15 minutes
over WSNY, a radio station.
Lorna Kunz, '47, and Dr. J. Allen
Hicks, Professor of Guidance, are in
charge of the speakers panel.
At least one delegate will represent Inter-Group Council at a meeting and luncheon to be held by the
City Club at the Ten Eyck Hotel on
January 26. Dr. Emily Hickman,
a member of the Education Committee of the San Francisco Conference and a Professor at the New
Jersey College for Women, will speak
on "Education and the Will to
Peace." A round table discussion
among students from colleges in
the vicinity of Albany will follow.
Housing Discussions
The Consumer's Research of Albany will hold several open meetings in the near future to discuss
the Inadequate housing conditions
now prevalent in Albany. The first
will be January 15 at the Joseph
Henry Memorial at 8:15 P.M. Richard W. Hill. Jr„ New York State
Research Director for Housing, will
speak on "The State's Part." On
January 28 at the YWCA Little
Theater, a panel discussion will be
held on "Slum Clearance and Public Housing," at 8:15 P.M. On February 4, a similar meeting will be
held at the same place to discuss
"Middle Priced Housing." State students Interested in a fact survey of
housing conditions are invited to attend,
Dean Rules Deadline
For Cnaperone Cards
Dr. Ellen C. Stokes, Dean of
Women, has announced that beginning next semester any event
for which cnaperone cards have not
been filed a week in advance will be
automatically cancelled. She also
requested that janitors required to
work overtime be paid promptly to
avoid confusion and neglect.
The one week ruling was put into
effect to eliminate last minute
searching - on the part of students
and to allow the faculty to make
their plans for that evening. The
faculty has expressed a desire for
a two weeks' notice but the deadline is still one week.
Individual notices of these rulings are being sent to the head of
each organization in order to give
fair warning to students planning
events.
Community Service
Members of the Community Service Steering Committee will hold a
meeting to discuss plans for establishing a leadership training group
for Inter-Group Council. Members
of the committee include Harriet
Brinkman, Marian Carter, Betty
Joan McGrath, Joseph Palevsky and
Shirley Passow, Seniors, Marjorie De
Lorraine, and Lois Hutchinson,
Juniors and Dr. Hicks.

What The Well Dressed Dog Will Wear
If you yearn to keep your dog in style, bring him to R. H.
Macy, Inc. to be reupholstered. For a nominal sum (anywhere
from $12.79 to $249.98 according to the size of your pet)
Macy's experts will fit him with a nice new muskrat, mouton
or mink (for the particular dog) coat. Gone are the days of
the prosaic plaid blanket—your dog can now have sex! Says
the New York Times advertisement picturing a snooty dog
trotting across the page all swaddled in furs, "She's just a
witch . . . in her Macy's mink." And it's so practical too—
after Fido gets tired of her furpiece, you can wear it for
awhile—that is, if you don't mind being seen in old hand-medowns . . .
_—
If you do indulge in a mink for
your mascot, keep him in the proper Fifth Avenue atmosphere—don't
feed him dog biscuits; feed him caviar. (And don't forget the Martini

Juniors To Hold
Annual Banquet
In Jacks Tonight
Miss Agnes Futterer
To Present Monologue
The Junior Class will celebrate its
third year at State with a banquet
tonight at 7 P.M. at Jack's Restaurant on State Street. The Juniors
will also hold a reception Tuesday night in the Lounge for students who entered this semester,
according to James Conley, President.
Miss Agnes E. Futterer, Professor
of English, will present a dramatic
monologue to highlight the entertainment for the Junior Banquet.
A skit will also be presented portraying characters from the comic
strip, Dick Tracy, in a barroom at
the Club 119. A take off will be
given on such well known personalities as Tess Trueheart, Dick
Tracy's faithful girl-friend; J u nior, who always manages to a p pear at the right moment; Itchy,
who apparently has a chronic rash;
Snowflake, a beautiful but unscrupulous damsel; Gravel Gertie, who
could never win a beauty contest;
B.O. Plenty, who is everything his
name suggests; Vitamin Flintheart,
the wayward actor suffering from
illusions; and last but not least, the
hero himself, Dick Tracy. According t o Miss Hilt and Woodworth,
there is also a surprise element in
the skit to climax t h e entire performance, Eleanor Binn is Mistress
of Ceremonies,
Banquet Menu
The menu for t h e Banquet i n cludes the following: fruit cup,
mashed potatoes, peas, relishes,
roast beef or scallops, rolls, coffee,
apple pie, and ice cream.

Feminine Babble In Commons
To think that a mere hundred mortals could cause such
a transformation!
The peaceful drone of feminine voices in the Commons,
supplemented by only a n occasional bass tremor, has burst
into a mighty overture of masculine uproar. Those less fortunate last minute researchers
in the library, prodded by a
12:35 deadline, push aside t h e
tempting thought of Joining the
hilarity below.
And it isn't those new nylons which are attracting a t tention in t h e ' lower hall of

An informal dance sponsored by
the Senior and Sophomore classes
will be held in the Commons t o morrow evening from 8 P.M. t o
midnight. Helen Rankey, '46, and
Alice Williams, '48, are co-chairmen
of the affair.
The purpose of the dance Is t o
promote unity and a closer relationship between the two sister
classes. A St. Valentine's Day
theme will predominate throughout
the affair, with large red hearts
decorating the walls of the Commons.
The dance is strictly informal,
Jeans and shirts or skirts and
sweaters will be the socially acceptable form of attire. Square
dancing as well as round has been
slated for the program. The event
is merely an informal get-to-gether
to enable t h e two classes to b e come better acquainted.
Games have been arranged in
addition to the dancing but no
