Supreme Court Religious Rule
Causes Controversy In Systems
Compiled from March 9-10, editions of the "New York Times"
and an article in the April issue of
the "American School Board Journal", by Herbert B. Mulford.
Religious instruction in public
school buildings was declared unconstitutional by the United States
Supreme Court March 8, but action taken as a result of this decision has been such as to question
the effectiveness of the decision.
Several administrative officials for
the city and the state of New York
have voiced their opinions on the
inefficucy of the declaration in
changing the New York system.
Dr. William Jansen, Superintendent of Schools of New York City,
announced no change in the city's
program of permitting children to

Of great concern to a large percentage of our
student body a t the present time is the problem
of what is to be done about the Pedagogue.
With the presentation of the yearbook's budget
in the special assembly early this week came discussions concerning the cost per student, the distribution, and the value of the publication. Some
students feel that it should be only a Senior class
book; others think that the entire cost of the book
per student should be included in everyone's student tax; still others want the receipt of a yearbook left entirely up to the discretion of the
This is a matter for careful consideration. So
many arguments both pro and con m a y be given
that if these arguments are only accepted on face
value, we will find ourselves revolving in a vicious
At Student Council meeting Wednesday night,
an Inquiry Board was appointed to investigate
this situation. We, who finance the yearbook
through our student tax, must know the facts and
more facts than have been presented. N o t only
will the Ped be represented on the Board but also
students who have shown genuine interest in settling the issue. Concrete suggestions and plans will
be presented by this Board in the May 14 assembly.
However, before this Board may present any
plans, the resolution asking for an $1.25 studenttax raise to cover the entire cost of a yearbook
for each student must be passed or defeated.
Before taking sides on the Ped question, we must
not fail to realize that though the sheet of paper
on the Husted bulletin board reads—surplus . . .
$6,038.99, below this item in red pencil stands
the "Payable from Veteran's Administration" . . .
$5,366.15. This deficit under which we are working leaves an actual amount of $672.84.
To continue dreaming about this surplus is ridiculous. I t may be next month or it may be a year
before this money is in the hands of the Board
of Finance.
Let us consider the following:
1. The '48-'49 budget has been drawn up upon
the expected registration of 1,500 students. We
have no assurance of this enrollment and are $63
short on next year's budget before September even
2. Appropriations were made last fall on a budget
total which included the money due from the Veteran's Administration.
3. If the money is not received from the Veteran's
Administration, the amount of money in the surplus may have to go to meet the budget for the
current year.
4. The surplus has been built up in the past from
the infirmary fund to which each student paid $3.00.
The adoption of the insurance plan has eliminated
this source of income.
Under normal conditions, the solution might he
quite different but considering existing conditions,
wc should view this question on a long-range basis.
The answer might lie in increasing the student tax

M Ntm look
We hear so much about the "new
look" in fashion these days, that it
is time we took a "new look" at the
world of sports. This new look will
take us beyond the athletic program of State College and will
branch out into the fertile field of
other college activities and national
sports on the outside.
ICA, at its recent conference, lias
taken a good look into the possibilities of starting an inter-collegiate program. It is definitely a step
in the right direction.
'Tis rumored that State may act
as host to a woman's basketball
play-day next winter. This could
give WAA a tremendous boost in
prestige and interest. Let's not let
the idea die on third!
The Problem
The proposed Varsity League between the Teacher Colleges presents
multi problems, but none of these
are too big to overcome IF we are
determined to do so. The money
question rears its ugly head as the
distance between the colleges is
much greater than that usually
travelled by the Varsity. Coach
Hathaway suggests an East-West
division with play-offs between the
winners. Well . . . why not?
It is a known fact that all Teacher Colleges are not of equal athletic strength. We suggest that if
a functioning league of this type
gets under way, the Teachers Colleges will attract students who wish
to participate in sports. And if
basketball seems like too big an
undertaking, let's start a League in
minor sports where the ability differences are not so great. The point
We hear a great deal about Public Relations lately. Can you
think of a better way to get the
public interested in State College
than to become members of a
Teacher College League? The hit
and miss scheduling which it has
been impossible to avoid under the
present system does not spread our
fame. The ICA League could.
Speaking of scheduling, this plan
would certainly save Coach and his
assistants a powerful number of
The Other Half
Turning to the national scene,
the major leagues got under way
this week. Of course it is too early
to make any predictions, but we'll
put our money on "Dem Bums."
The Albany Senators, whom reporters seem to think will put up a
good team this year, will open their
season Tuesday against Hartford
at Havtfcul. The Club will go into
the Eastern League pennanc race
with the oldest club in the Richardson loop. The combined player average is 26 years.
Milne High will play eight home
games this season. This should
give us a chance to see some of our
perspective students in action.
The Big News
Since the biggest news of the day
is the debut of our own 1948 Baseball Varsity, we can't help but urge
all you who would like to see the
team in action to join us at Bleeker
Stadium at four o'clock. Today's
the day. Admission by student tax.
The long awaited results of the
WAA Ping Pong Tournament give
the championship to Addle Fischer
'48. She clowned Elsa Moberg '49,
in the finals to cop this .year's
woman's title.
As a closing thought, though it
is with us nil of the time, we take
this opportunity to compliment
Paula, our venerable editor, on the
swell job she has done on Sports
Page this year. It's been real, Tichy.
Siena, ABC Contests
Scheduled NextWeek
Today the '48 edition of the State
baseball team takes the field for
their opening game against Pharmacy. The opener will be played
at Bleeker Stadium at four o'clock.
Although State played Inter-Collegiate baseball on an informal basis last year, this season will be its
first big season since the late thirties. State has a ten game slate
lined up for the season, facing six
different opponents.
State played Pharmacy twice last
year. After losing the first game
to the "druggists," the team bounced back and took the second game
for a split for the season.
During next week, State will play
two games. Monday will see the
Varsity renewing relations with ABC
at Ridgefield. On Thursday, State
takes up last year's rivalry with
Siena. The team will be out to
avenge two defeats at the hands
of the "Indians" last year. This
game will be played at Siena.
In the pitching
Coach Hathaway has a well balanced six-man squad. Four are righthanders; Hank Farley, Harvey
Clearwater, John Dalton and Bob
Tucker. The two port-sides are
"Hy" Blavatnick and Ben Santora.
Probable starting line-up:
Monroe, second base.
George, center field.
Warden, first base.
Kaehn, left field.
Dickinson, right field.
Marzello, third base.
Glenday, catcher.

To Enter Contest
State College has been invited to
take part in the 19th Annual Woman's Telegraphic Archery Tournament, according to Elizabeth Winkler and Martha Mason, Juniors.
The State entry will be arranged
under the auspices of WAA Archery Captains.
The Tournament, which Is sponsored by the Woman's National
Archery Association, is open to all
colleges having women students. It
is conducted by districts as well as
through national championships.
Eight women will compose a team
to be entered in the contest. The
captains will hold practice sessions
on the Dorm Field on Tuesday and
Thursday afternoons as well as
special sessions for those Who wish
to practice at another time. Anyone
interested in trying out for the
team should contact Winkler or
Mason immediately or sign the
sheet provided on the WAA Bulletin Hoard.
The matches will be shot here at
State between May 81 h and May
15th. The tourney, conducted in
accordance with the Columbia
Round, will include fifty, forty and
thirty yard distances. All undergraduate women are eligible and
the eight high scores will be telegraphed to district and national
tournament headquarters. Rating
certificates will be awarded winners.
Thirteen outdoor minded gals
started out for WAA's Camp
Johnson Friday. They sure did
not know what fate awaited!
"Scoop" Gilbert got the weekend off to a rather warm start.
She put three logs in the potbelly stove in the bunk room so
that they would burn one at a
time all night to keep a constant comfortable temperature.
But that courageous '48er,
Paula Tichy, came to the rescue.
When the others left to cool
off, Paula remained and valiantly regulated the
Someone suggested she throw
cold water on the stove to cool
it off but she knew better.

Paula saved the day. After diving into the mud, head first,
she extricated the shoe.

Golf Schedule
The coming of Spring and the
greening of the grass means only
one thing—Golf. Once again State
will sponsor a golf team which will
be matched against teams Iron;
Siena, Union, Utica, and Albany
Business College.
At. the f.rst practice over twenty
men turned out to get their muscles
limbered up for the swinging of
their woods and irons. Several of
last years squad are back including
Joe Biviano—last year's captain, Al
Beninati, Jim Bowen, Joe Carosella, and Marty Bortnick. There is
also a lot of promising material
among the new comers.
The team is still looking for a
faculty coach, and they hope to
have one by the time of their first
match on April 27 against Siena.
We hope to see a team this year
that will turn in as good a record
as State teams in the past have.
Golf was dropped after a good season in 1942 due to the war and was
brought back to campus last year.
From all indications, it seems to be
back to stay.
This week practice tor the squad

will be held at the Municipal Golf
