so many kinds . . . their actions are amusing and
baffling and even terrifying—and they have all been
poured into the melting-pot of State College.
I was sitting on a stool in the P.O., thumbing
through a well-worn newspaper—and for the life
of me, I couldn't think of Prime Minister Atlee's fir.'.o
name. "Hey," I said to the giri who dashed into t i e
room, "do you know the ole' boy's name?" She looked
at me, startled, and in a gasp she said: "Why, no, I
don't take Poll Sci 12/"
I never believe rumors—but there's one that the
removed from the library shelves. But, can this be
TRUE? Surely not in a teacher-training institution
where academic freedom is the by-word of educational
methods—surely not among people who clamor againsiany infringement of free speech and press. For, after
all, that would be supression—and that's like burning book!"
For the information of those who didn't sit in those
empty seats, we DID have assembly last Friday. The
program consisted of election speeches for secretary
and presentation of the voting committee's report—
the THIRD Voting Committee that YOU asked for.
It's a privilege to vote—but, remember, you have a
duty toward that privilege—even to be a semi-qualified voter, you have to know WHAT you're voting for!
The most important objective of the student should
be the attempt to promote a better functioning student organization. The Voting Committee's job was n
tedious one—they at least deserve a hearing. After
all, they didn't do it because they relish late meetings
and working with Weinberg's "It's Really Very Simple" Voting System. And, remember, they're not making money on it, or trying to dictate. Give them a
break—they represent you.
The conduct in Page Hall at the "aforementioned"
assembly was shattering—so these are the "adults"
who are tomorrow's teachers—this is the shining light
that will guide our children: the only positive thing
about this "group" is that they're the first to gripe.
Thus, we hereby propose:
1. If the assembly proves too dull—too dull to listen
to respectfully, ask for an interview with the
program committee, and do some constructive
2. If it is impossible to tolerate the rereading of
amendments and recommendations, start bailing
today for the proverbial obstacles of life—there
are worse things waiting for you . . .
3. If neither of these categories meet with your approval, unci you are still indifferent, at least give
the speaker the courtesy he deserves. "They also
serve . . ."
And, furthermore, State College is yours—if it is a
center of Juvenile pettiness—blame yourself. If your
aversion is "big-wheels," remember that they thrive
on the food you feed them, A college is like tin automobile: It is smooth-running and efficient, only il
the parts are chosen well and if you remember to
check the oil!
Did you hear about the aspiring Junior who took n
Quick shorthand course, so that she could fill in her

As a part of National Brotherhood Week, Dumbleton and Freyer announce that the group plans tu

Exhibit This Week In Draper
In an effort to discover the genera! attitude of the students who
are participating in the new program of cadet teaching, they were
interviewed this week concerning
their first reactions to teaching
"out in the field." Majors in English, they are teaching in outlying
districts of Albany, under master
As a whole they seemed quite enthusiastic and very pleased with
their new environment. Marjorie
Lotz, at Ravena, stated that in her
opinion, this was a valuable experience, well worth the extra time
put into it. Ruth Bessel, Voorheesville, who is teaching three classes
in English, commented that her
schedule adds variety to her pedagogical life and that she feels cadet
practice is a true picture of what
future teachers are prepared for.
Betty Jayne Jones, Watervllet,
went even further in her statement.
She feels that her work with five
different classes is an experience
that she won't forget, but she went
on to say that both the seniors and
State will benefit from this system,
if it is permitted to expand.
From Bethleham Central, Dorothy Diffin Merritt and Mary Fleming are both agreed that they have
a very good location. They are pleased with the school, master-teachers,
co-workers, and especially the students
Gloria Gilbert, most "hepped-up"
of all the cadets, enthusiastically
described the "beautiful school, excellent library, wonderful food and
cafeteria, and the terrific, typical
teen-agers." She also said that ris

way to lead a healthy life.

Washington. The cast includes Paul

Frederick Baron '49. According to
the stage crew, Mr. Lubey's set is
