Disclose First Floor Plan O f New Social Center Sage Conference
Features Talks
On Student Life
At the sixth annual conference
for the discussion of campus activities a t Russell Sage last weekend,
at which Patricia de Rouville, '47,
Gerhard Weinberg, '48, and Jean
Pulver, '49, were present, discussions
were held on the newly-proposed
National Student Organization and
on various phases of campus life.
The conference opened Friday
evening, April 25, with a round table
discussion on the NSO Plans for the
new organization were introduced
to the delegates and a later discussion from the floor revealed that
there was a general split in the opinions of the colleges represented as
to the purposes, aims, and plans of
the organization.
The topic which aroused the most
interest was the advantages of the
honor system which has been adopted by many colleges all over the
country. Students generally felt
that this system was very successful to the point where students had
to report on each other, and where
some of the faculty were still hesitant about completely accepting
the .system. In most colleges, an
Honor Board is set up consisting of
a President and the presidents of
each of the group houses. The Board
is a secretive organization and the
identity of students who appear before the board is never revealed.
The delegates reported that in
general terms, the amount of power which any college has is in direct proportion to the amount of
extra-curricular activities in which
the students participate.

Third Showing O f French Movie Primer Members
In U. S. Comes To Colonial Theatre To Vote Today
"Les Enfants du Paradls", viewed
in an advance showing this week at
the Colonial theater, proved to be a
refreshing departure from the usual
fare offered to American moviegoers.
The story revolves around Baptiste, a mime, and his love for the
beautiful Garance. The two meet
during the Mardi-Gras celebration
in Paris, in the reign of LouisPhilippe, and Baptiste obtains a job
for the girl at the theater where he
works. They become stars, in the
pantomine dramas there, but Garance soon leaves Paris with a nobleman to whom she is indebted.
After a five-year lapse, the narration is picked up again and brought
to a conclusion.
Highpoints of the picture were
scenes in the Punambules theater
where Baptiste, played by JeanLouis Barrault, stars in the pageants he has written. The French
actor, in his exaggerated clown suit
and flour-colored makeup, is an unrange of emotions without the aid
of words.
An unusual device is the projection of Baptiste's emotions in the
plot of the plays he writes. In one
disputed expert at portraying a
scene, for example, Garance plays
the role of an unattainable goddess
wooed by the mime but lured away
by another actor. The action corresponds to the actual situation in
that Baptiste loves the actress but
she in turn loves someone else.
A loosely-knitted plot seems to
be the main fault of "Les Enfants".
The characters drift from one situation to another with little continuity, and there are often gaps in
the action. It is possible, however,
that at least a part of this lack of
unity is a result of cutting the film
from its original length of over
three hours to about two and onehalf hours.
Shakespeare students will find a
similarity between the Elizabethan
audiences who viewed the Bard's

which has as its headquarters the
Assembly Chamber and Committee
Rooms of the State Capitol.
The goal of the conference is "to
develop techniques by which a number of individuals can arrive at a
solution reflecting the best of
which the group is capable." To
carry out this objective the Student
Assembly is organized as a modified
State Legislature. Governor Thomas E. Dewey has been invited to
speak at the open Assembly.
Fifteen colleges and universities
in the state, including Syracuse
Queens College, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Union College,
will have delegates on the three
committees which have been formed. There will be a Committee on
Education to consider bills on teachers' salaries, state assistance to local school systems, and the establishment of a State University. The
second committee, on Veterans' affairs, will consider veterans' housing, on-the-job training programs,
and educational benefits. The third
committee on the condition of New
York State and its people will cover
other state problems which are of
interest to the delegates.
Events Will End
State will hold its thirty-fourth
annual Moving-Up Day exercises tomorrow morning. These ceremonies
will conclude the extra-curricular
activities of all four classes for
this year.
After the procession of all classes
from Draper to Page Halls, Ruth
Bentley, President of Student Association, will open the Assembly.
The class speakers will be first on
the program. Respectively, they are:

dance at RPI Friday night, displaying their charms to the
friendly citizens of the shirt and

of Troy wasn't worth seeing . . .
and they certainly had an advantageous viewpoint.

The float dealt with a subject

that of zeros. Half of the bandwagon depicted the joy of knocking down zeros during war. The
other half pertained to a more
intriguing saga . . . how to knock
them down at college, with the
help of a wife and children. This,
it is understood, is the section of
the float to which the fair representatives of State donated
their talents.
