Commons Monday at noon and
see if you can get any bargains
at the Chinese Auction. The
Honorable Sparkee Vaughn will
be Auctioneer.
Your name doesn't have to be
Hwang Ho or Peking Pete to
make you eligible to bid. The
only reason they call it a Chinese Auction is because you
won't know what you're getting
until you get there. (It's a well
known fact, you know, that the
Chinese are short on words and
long on surprises.)
Rare bits of paraphernalia
and privileges will be virtually
given away to the highest bidder, so don't miss a single sweet
second. The buy of the clay is
a surprise package, the contents
of which will be known only after purchase. A word to the wise
is sufficient, so, if you go steady,
have your nickels ready.
A goal of ten dollars has been
set up, which will be used to
purchase a rivalry bulletin

of life backstage.
The administration has granted
permission to the class of '49 to
form a committee to study the problem of inadequate seating facilities
for graduation and report on what
solution to the problem can be
made at the present time.
If an adequate solution can be
worked out, it will be followed this
June and in years to come, until the
plans for added facilities materialize in the new building plans now
being considered.
The committee has already begun
work and expects that they will
have a complete report ready by
the first of the year. Investigations
are being conducted concerning the

The age old, yet romantic American saga of marrying your high
school sweetheart; traditional winning of school letter, and being
captain of the team; the corny but
real story of returning to school
after discharge from the Army; all
these are elements in the life of
Seymour "Sy" Fersh, veteran court
campaigner here at State.
"Sy" is a native of Foughkespsle,
New York, where he was a class
officer, and won his Varsity Liters
in Basketball and Track. Drafted
shortly after he left high school,
even though he had been accepted
at State, he spent two years in the
army, where after service in Europe,
he was transferred to Fort Knox,
Kentucky. There he played basketball for the Fort Knox team, playing against such top-flight teams as
the University of Kentucky (Ralph
Beard and Company i, and Louisville.
Enters State College
Next stop in his crowded life
was State. Here he became active
in school activities, including two
honor fraternities, Kappa Phi Kappa, and Pi Gamma Mu. He is an
active member of Kappa Beta, carrying their color:; in intramural
football and Softball. Not content
to play Varsity basketball, lie went
out for Ihe tennis team, and made
that too. With the experienced
gained in this way, "Sy" is looking
forward to coaching the Milne tennis team when he starts practice
teaching there next semester.
Late in August of 1947. while still
a Sophomore, "Sy" got married. He
lives now in an apartment near the
school, yet, since his marriage occurred just after the close of the
summer session, many of the students at Stale never learned of the
event. Although he like.'-, Albany, lie
expressed no desire to live here,
and made it plain that his fondest
hope was to teach nowhere but in
Poughkeepsie, his "home town" and
"alma mater."
Sincerely interested in polities,
Fersh is Ihe treasurer of the Forum
of Politics, as well as being active
in their activities, such as programming, and the election night partyHe has contributed many articles
to Soapbox and the NEWS.
An accelerated Junior, Fersh will
graduate in August. He is a Social
Studies major, with an English minor. His family too is in the teaching field, as he has two brothers,
both in Education in New York, and
a sister at New Pall/ Teachers College.
Enthusiastic Over Team
A genuine .spirit of enthusiastic
optimism seemed to ooze from "Sy"
as lie talked. "Some goal lreshmen
and newly arrived trnnslcrs ought
to bolster last year's nucleus. We
have a tough schedule, with some
pretty tall teams, but the team is
confident. Hart wick seems to be
the toughest game en the schedule
We hope to beat them I his year on
our home court."
Remembering when Siena was on

of the time when Slate tennis will
again be strong enough to schedule
them again.

of three in their battle for first
place honors In the Intercollegiate
Bowling League. Siena nosed out
the varsity squad In the second
game by thirty pins to prevent
State from sweeping the thive game

able to take all three games, they
would have been in first place with

Captain Joe Carosella. Bob Dickinson and Don MacDonald also connected for totals of 535 and 534. Individual high single game was Carosella's neat 197 effort.

Although Potter turned back

Early in the first period, Nolan

booted the ball through the goal
for the Scrub score.
Throughout the remainder of the
first and second periods, the ball

Potter netted another score near
