To Prmcrvc Our Integrity . . .
The integrity and honesty of college students
have been subjected to an abnormal amount of
public probing in the last few months. The move,
which started in Texas, finally reached Albany in
the form of an investigation of exam techniques
in use at this college.
As a result of this poll, the News conducted its
own survey and obtained results that surprise no
one and could have been predicted in advance.
There is some cheating at State, as there is in every
school, but it exists in such a small degree that
it presents no acute or alarming problem.
The Common-Stater

O u r basketball t e a m showed evidences of having

favored S i e n a team 62-41. Although this game adds
to S t a t e ' s long string of losses, t h e spirit speaks for
a better future. Chuck Houghtaling, P r e s i d e n t of the
S i e n a S t u d e n t Senate said, " S t a t e showed fine spirit.
If S i e n a h a d t h e same drive, we would be undefeated."

well for S t a t e women. This brings to m i n d a statem e n t m a d e by Dean Milton G. Nelson in Tuesday's
Knickerbocker News. "We h a v e a p r e t t y innocent
b u n c h h e r e anyway."
Oib sheets and other devices for bringing notes
into exams are practically unknown here, and no
elaborate techniques have been developed for the
Answers to the survey indicate that there is
neither time nor desire to cheat if the exam is fair
and conducted in an intelligent manner. The only
time the students feel there is justification for
extra-curricular work during tests, according to the
survey, is when the exam covers material not
treated in the course or is much too long and too
hard to be completed in the allotted time.
In addition, Dean Nelson expressed the opinion that most exams here are of such a nature that
the student couldn't do any better if he was turned
loose in the library. This is especially true of more
advanced courses taken by Seniors and Grads.
And yet these two classes were the ones, according
to an outside poll, which were the most skilled in
cribbing and indulged in the practice most often.
Consideration of the long, subjective tests that
most Seniors and Grads have to take indicates that
cribbing would involve more work and worry than
actually studying for the course.
Cheating has never been a serious problem here,
and we do not feel that there has been any radical
change in the situation calling for investigation or
Athletics Go To Assembly . . .
Athletics move into the Assembly spotlight today with a discussion of the proposal to vote on
the Varsity Athletics line of MAA budget in December instead of in May.
The proposal was made by the Student Association committee appointed to investigate our Varsity program and is designed to facilitate formation of next season's schedule.
The Varsity program has been operating under
staggering combination of difficulties since its revival last year and is in need of increased support
from the school. If voting on the Varsity Athletics
line five months early will aid the program in any
way, there should be no reason for not approving
the motion when it comes up for a vote.

We took a little survey of our own about the college and our results are there. Yes, some cribbing
does take place on examinations. I n m a n y cases,
it was in courses in which "cooperation" was almost
invited. Girls are more guilty of c h e a t i n g t h a n men.
B u t well over 50 per cent of all people asked had
never seen nor ever indulged In a n y cheating.
T h e article in tho Knick picked "future teachers"
to survey. T h e number of people interviewed was
not given. Likewise, statistics were strangely lacking.
And despite the fact t h a t all m e a n s of journalistic
cleverness were employed, t h e cold h a r d facts are
t h a t there is relatively little cribbing a t State.
Some s t u d e n t s acquainted with other colleges in
t h e vicinity suggested t h a t cribbing was much more
prevalent in these other colleges.
Various methods mentioned were writing on knees,
keeping a crib sheet in a j a c k e t pocket, whispering',
writing on the desk before t h e exam paper is handed
out, and peeking at a book.
It should be remembered, however, t h a t any final
e x a m i n a t i o n is a combination of w h a t a student
learned during the course a n d how effective the
instructor was.
C o n g r a t s to Faculty
T h e faculty is leading off in t h e c a m p a i g n here
to raise t e a r h e r s ' salaries. T h e y have nothing to
gain themselves in doing this, but a questionnaire is
being sent around, asking w h e t h e r or not efch member of the faculty favors going on record in support of t h e Young-Milmoe T e a c h e r s ' Salary Bill and
t h e Young-Milmoe S t a t e Aid Bill. This will'not affect
a single member of t h e faculty.
Surely If they r a n do s o m e t h i n g like this, we, the
ones affected by the pending legislation, can do even
more. 2,500 letters to our Assemblymen and Senators
would m e a n a lot. If vott don't know their names the
library h a s them.

T h e questions will be sent to
one or two h u n d r e d people, with
equal percentages from each class.
According to Philip Lashinsky, '47,
