Backstage Bouquet. . .
We like to mix a few bouquets with our bricks occasionally, and this week we're throwing one in the
direction of AD and those associated with the organization.
This is not an attempt to pass judgment on the
dramatic worth of final productions seen in Page
'on Tuesday nights. That is left to our critic.
We do feel, however, that a great deal of credit
should go to those who have devoted more time than
they can really spare to the countless jobs necessary
for every play. The excellent set in this week's production, for example, was the result of long hours
of after-school work in the cramped annex facilities.
There seems to be no limit to the time spent in
rehearsals at every hour of the day and night in a
sincere effort to furnish a worthwhile product for
State College consumption. Add to this list the
work of costumes, properties, make-up, research,
'*)tc. and you have some idea of the magnitude of
the job.
Although AD plays do not have the polish of a
Broadway production, they are the result of as
tnuch effort as any professional cast ever put into a
drama. Don't forget this next time you're in Page.
Comment on Misconduct . .
We'd like to make a short and not very sweet
comment on the fracas in last Friday's assembly.
The conduct of the freshman and Sophomore classes
—or the misconduct—was a far cry from the
currently theoretical spirit of fair play and common decency that forms the basis of rivalry.
For your information, Sophomores, the expression "making the freshman crawl" was never intended to be interpreted literally. The condition
of the frosh when they finally emerged from the
double line of "gay young Sophomores" was a
damaging testimony to the un-sportsmanlike attitude of their rival .class. Broken glasses, damaged
clothing, lost beanies and the like were entirely unnecessary. Nor were the freshmen blameless. Sharp
elbow punches below the belt, and hard cracks to
the shins went far beyond the bounds of the expected give and take between the classes.
If rivalry cannot be won by fair means, we suggest both closses give up now, before someone gets

for a vaoatJon short, but greatly apEi'sororlty preciated by all.
Have you ever experienced the sensation that comes
from turning over a rock and finding slippery worms
underneath? The dismissal of O. John Rogge as special
assistant to Attorney General Tom Clark tends to give
one the impression that certain government officialsdue, perhaps, to a dislike for the ugly—would rather
turn the rock neatly back into place and cover up the
rottenness underneath than expose it to the public.
Rogge was dismissed from the Attorney General's
Department for disclosing contents of a report he made
on Nasi sedltlonist and propaganda plans here. Since
the report was originally assigned to Rogge to be
written up and filed to the Federal Court here when
final action was (if ever) taken on the sedition cases,
and It was written with the intention to be made
public, why was Rogge ousted from the Department
for disclosing its contents? If the reason for the
hushing process is that a disclosal of the report might
turn a few Nazi-affiliated faces red, then there's hardly a reason at all.
Rogge, after all the time he has spent investigating
the subject, is In a better posjtion than many others
to Inform the American people about Fascist activities
to our country—past, present, and future. And if we
wish to erase this word "future" from the Fascist
agenda, we must first find out who all the Fascists
are and Rogge is the man who can tell us.
We do know that some of those mentioned in the
report are William Dudley Pelley, leader of the Silver
Shirts (the American equivalent of the Hitlerian
Brown Shirts), George Deatherage, founder of the
Knights of the White Camelia (an organization Klu
Klux Klanish in character), JoJo McWllliams, head
of the Christian Mobilizers, Fascist hate group, Elizabeth Dllllng, etc. etc. What we don't know is how
these people operate (besides spreading antl-everythlng propaganda), who is connected with them, how
far their tentacles reach, and how we can stop them.
Rogge and Attorney General Clark know this, and
for some reason when Rogge decided to let the truth
be known officially, he was subtly silenced.
The execution of the eleven top Nazis at Nuremburg
does not necessarily constitute the end of all Fascism;
any fool knows that. Until all fascist activities can
be traced down to the roots and quelled, we have not
rid ourselves of it—and this ridding process should
become an immediate goal. It would be too bad to become lethargic at this Stage.
The Rogge report should be made public now. Although the slippery worms found beneath a rock are
distasteful to look at, it Is far better to clean out
their activity upon first notice than to attempt the
easier way and turn the rock back into place. It's a
messy process, Indeed, but guarantees that the crawling things underneath won't multiply underground
until they become numerous enough to slide out from
under the rock and surround it.
The Common-Stater is given the urtdest latitude as
author of this column, although his viewpoints do not
necessarily reflect those of the Store College News.
We'd like to bring to the attention of those In a
position for correction to the condition of the men's
shower room. Ordinarily two usable showers would
suffice, but with a basketball squad and a large number of students finding it necessary to use the showers in the men's locker room, shower-heads should be
replaced on those whloh are not in working condition.
Here's the lineup:
No. 1—Showers clothes hanging on the wall and
passers-by, leaving the user entirely dry.
No. 2—Usable, but soon to fall In category with
shower No. 1.
No. 3—drills the user in much the same fashion as
a target on a .30 cal. machine gun range.
No. 4—same as No. 2,
No, 5—showers Innocent Individual drying self off,
