Dig, Brother, Digl
Revised S. A. Constitution
One day last Spring a young '46er woke u p and
found that she had been elected Editor-in-Chief
of the Pedagogue. Her eyes shone with happiness,
and she was filled with a shining, vibrant enthusiasm. September, October, November, and D e cember rolled by.
Then came January 1, 1946, and a new year
. . . and bills . . . bills from the printer, bills from
the engraver. And although bills stretch with
great ease, budgets do not show the same elasticity. The result is obvious—either State gets
a mediocre yearbook, or, with the aid of the student body, a Ped superb. Equally as obvious is the
fact that the decision rests with the students.
An analysis of the situation is essential before
a solution may be found. Advertisements are the
first and most advantageous means of gaining extra money. Another possibility is the request by
the Pedagogue for an appropriation from the surplus. The third and last possibility is to cut the
yearbook both in quality and quantity. The last
method would certainly be the least desirable.
According to rather reliable reports, the advertising staff of the Pedagogue has already combed
the city of Albany. Consequently, future " a d s "
must come from outside of the city. Yearbook
advertisements are usually complimentary, rather
than commercial, and are given as a token of good
will. This, therefore, is an open field to all members of Student Association . . . certainly father's
hardware store, uncle's automobile shop, and the
old home town drug-store hang-out would all glow
with pride at the idea of having an " a d " in the
State College Pedagogue. For further information
concerning rates, space, etc., contact Jean Griffin,
Editor, or Joan Mather, Advertising Manager.
Naturally, you can shrug your shoulders and
retort that this isn't your problem. But the Ped
is yours, and without your help, cannot be the
publication that it should.
Let s Don Long Pantsl
Discourtesy is the mirror of stupidity and the
reflection of conceit.
Forgetful, perhaps, of the connotations of adolescent behavior, State students last Friday exhibited a display of boisterous conduct that was
disgraceful and unwarranted.
Granted that the assembly showed definite signs
of lasting longer than noon, and that hunger is a
natural incentive to restlessness and impatience,
common courtesy requires attention and respect
from any audience when someone is lecturing. We
are, supposedly, living in a civilized era, and State,
also supposedly, is composed of the higher intellects.
It would not be too serious a matter if this
were the first occurrence. I t has, however, been
.all too frequent in the past, and has grown steadily
worse. We wonder what impression of State Miss
Maurer carried away with her. W e wonder if she
realizes that the verbal confusion was due, not to
lack of interest, but to State's tendency to have
weekly relapses into childhood . . .

otherwise provided for. Changed to:
To appoint with the approval of Student Council, etc.

treasurer of Student Council.
2d: To act as Student Council representative to S. Bd. of Finance.

Kali, Rah, Rah!
According to the illuminating article on Sports Page last week, State
seems to be in for a prolific siege
of male prowess on the basketball
court. State's good form in the Siena
game Wednesday night spurred on
the already high enthusiasm to an
even greater pitch. In this feverish
state of frenzy why not bring back
some of the gala sport dances of
former years?
Buffalo University has a unique
idea in this line. Preceding their top
games they sponsor an informal dinner dance with music for the crowds,
cheers for the team, and bets for the
beers. Of course we couldn't be quite
so lavish but an informal, abbreviated
luncheon in the Commons would certainly arouse the old State spirit. The
exuberant spirits could then trek onward to Page fully prepared for the
evening's onslaught. A Saturday night
affair would be Ideal for this sort of
fling (the Boul and the Sweet Shop
get rather obsequious by this time).

In their first weeks of school (under Sophomore persuasion) Is far
better than having the student and
faculty thumbing through the pages

conditions arc so bad that their collego paper has been forced to take
up valuable space trying to remedy
the pitiful situation. One of our rarest examples of student unity la the

of convocation.
The recent Inter-Group Council
conference is still echoing repercussion throughout the State. Oswego
and Buffalo State Teachers' InterOroup Councils, among the first to
take up the cry, have made great progress in such organization. Two members of our faculty, Dr, Stewart and
Dr. Jones, have already addressed
these two groups, the former at Oswego and the latter at Buffalo. On
Wednesday of this week Cortland

The E. W. Edwards & Son store in Syracuse
advertised a sale of nylons last week. The

Saipan were never like this) to pass out from the
pressure. Frailty, thy name is woman! (OH YEAH?

Have you heard about the bubble gum shortage
currently sweeping our city? The other day we were
almost hurled to the ground by excited kiddies standing in a bubble gum queue outside the corner candy
store. "Fer cryin' out loud!" protested one lad to a

"Boy," said the little girl sarcastically, "whatta gentleman, I must say!" (Well, we all have our little problems, haven't we?)
Latest story of the atom bomb hails from France
where a Parisian public was panicked last week by
a French radio take-off on the Orson Welles "Man
From Mars" program. Monsieur Jean Mocher, jokaire
practicale, frightened the Parisians with a broadcast entitled, "Platform 70 or the Atomic Age." The
listeners were led to believe that this little old earth
of ours was suddenly beginning to disintegrate (atomically, of course). So . . . they ran to the police, called
the fire department, and some of them even committed suicide. Then, at the end of the program, a
soothing voice asked: "You weren't frightened, were
you? It was a funny joke, no?" (Monsieur Nocher
left town immediately after the broadcast.)
This is a far-off cry from the end of the alphabet,
the oppressed, the prejudiced against, the intolerantly treated. In third year of grammar school, we
were the last to get weighed and measured. In third
year of high school, we were the last to get tnnoculated. And now, in third year of college, we are tinlast to get seats in assembly and must sit in the
balcony with the freshmen. And why? All
our forefathers bore surnames whose first initials ran
from S-Z. We realize that the overcrowded condition
in assembly makes it necessary for a part of the
Junior Class to sit in the balcony, and we have sat our
part But now we feel that our places should be taken
by the A-F's, those forerunners of all good things in

The Benevolent Association of the

has purchased the Benjamin Arnold
home for use as a men's dormitory.
The building is located at the corner
of Sprague and State Streets, and
will have accommodations for fifty
students after remodeling.
Situated a short block from the
campus, the only men's dormitory at

which extends through to Western

The mansion which is considered
one of the finest and most beautiful
homes in Albany, was constructed at
the beginning of the century. It is
the only building in the city designed
by Kim, Reed and White, well-known
architects of New York City. It is
built of red brick and white stone,
and its large hall is constructed on
the same style as that of the Schuyler
The porch, in the form of a Greek
colonnade, opens on the main hall.
The large entrance hall extends half
the length of the building to a wide
curved staircase. On the right of the
entrance hall there is a completely
glassed-in sunporch facing the garden.
A G.I. Home
Before the Arnold home was acquired by the college, facilities for
almost half the returning ex-servicemen were lacking. The housing problem was so acute at one time that
the plan to put up cots in the main
rest room at the College was seriously considered. With the purchase
of the building, accommodations were
assured for part of the 126 students
who arc enrolled at State under the
provisions of the G.I. Bill of Rights.
Each room on the main floor has
a fireplace, and the floors are made
of teakwood imported from Africa.
All tho bedrooms on the second and
third floors have adjoining baths.
Former Owners
Benjamin Arnold, original owner
of the mansion, was born into a poor
family, but at the time of his death
about fifteen years ago, he was a
millionaire. His fortune was made
in the lumber industry, and the family had lumber holdings from New
York to Oregon. He married twice;
each of his wives was a member of
the Van Rensselaer family, old patroons of this section who establashed
the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Exhibit Of Soap Carvings
Constitutes Library Display
The mothers and fathers fifty
years ago used to admonish the
younger generation to have "good
clean fun." Brought up to date
and applied to hobbies, that
phase could be used for soap carving.
Marian Carter took up cutting
the Ivory about a month ago
when her small daughter Diane
became fascinated with a collection of soap animals in a store.
This week, some of the results of
her experience are on display in
the library.
