began to darken the sky. Unfortunately however, the vegetation on the
alleged softball field also darkened
the sky, to the extent of encroaching upon the activities of the players, causing a sharp decline in and
eventual abandonment of this particular sporting endeavor.
At the evening meal, the class of
'51 showed that it, really had the
stuff. Although in a slate of near
exhaustion after an afternoon of
heroic physical exertion, just about
every last man among the freshmen made the one hundred yards
from the administration building to
the mess hall in ten seconds flat
when chow was announced. After
this hearty refueling, renewed enthusiasm flared in the athletic vein
until Okl Sol blacked out.
Short Cots—Long Legs
After a few songs and much more
merriment, all betook themselves
to I he mess hall for coffee, except dial il was cocoa and. with
the closing of I he evening's program, some people went to bed.
Most people, however, didn't. Many
went swimming. Some tall ones,
like Prank Haas and Counsellor

Saturday's daylight activities were
on the whole about the same as but
more extensive than Friday's. The
day was featured by the noon-time
address of Dr. Nelson. Among other
practical hints regarding their conduct while at college, Dr. Nelson
cautioned the fre.Uimen against

After the evening meal the boys
were treated to one and a half
hours of good movies, with the able
and ever congenial Dr. Floyd Hendrickson in the projection room. Refreshments followed, ending the
day's official activities.
Sunday Reveals Solidarity
Sunday brought religious services,
a good attempt at more athletics,
and a lot of aching backs. At noon,
the cuisine rose to the peak of its
uchivement. This was timely, as all
concerned needed a rich fuel mixture for even the slight work of
packing and departure, pooped as
they were.
At two P.M., precisely as scheduled, camp broke up and the busses
sped back to Albany. They brought
back a new group of people.
They had left Albany on Friday

were one big group, and although

Fall Sports Plans
In a statement, to the News tills
week John Dooley,
president of
MAA, officially welcomed the new
members of the Men's Association.
MAA has extensive plans for '47'48 and has a full slate on tap for
I he sports seasons.
MAA announced that a new athletic point system has been drawn
up by a committee. The plan has
gone to I he council for discussion
and ratification. The purpose of the
point award system i.s to foster interest in both the intramural and
varsity programs and to encourage
a larger percentage of the men to
participate in the programs. Both
individual and group awards will be
made at the end of the school year.
MAA also announced that the fall
sports program will get under way
as soon as the leagues are organized.
Football will lead-off the program
with a six-man "double-touch" league. Bob Sorenson '50 is intra-mural
manager of football. Following the
football season soccer will occupy
the sports limelight. A crosscountry
team is being tentatively planned.
There will be golf for lovers of the
fairway sport, with a golf tournament scheduled as a conclusion to
the season. Tennis will follow with
a net tournament also on tap.
Archery, and trap shooting round
out the fall sports agenda.
Tuck away those swim trunks with
the things you did last summer, kiddles, fall is here and fall means, besides school reopening, the World
Series, football, basketball, hockey,
and stuff like that there. Set aside
a few of these breezy autumn days,
put the books on the shelf and come
on out.
This piece is written in hopes of
enlightening our new friends, namely the frosh, transfers and any men
students who are here at State for
the first time. By way of greetings
we welcome all the newcomers to
State with a suggestion that they
try and make 47-48 the biggest

Men's Athletic Association
The Men's Athletic Association,
commonly known as MAA is an organization of all the men students
of State. It's purpose is to foster,
promote and administer the men's
athletic program, both intra-mural
and varsity. This year we have an
energetic president in John Dooley,
'48 who will administer the organization after having served as public itey manager last year. Other officers are Walt Schick, '48, vicepresident; John Morley '49, secretary; and Ben Jackson '50, financial secretary. This year's MAA is
operating under a new constitution,
revised and rewritten last year.
MAA is shooting for 1007r participation in at least one sport. So once
