so let's go stompin' cats.
Cookin' the greatest sounds for

Open Door Policy
Because of many questions raised by SA members, and
a request in last week's News for a clarification on the recent Myskania ruling that an organization could close their
meetings to outsiders, Myskania ruled Tuesday night, that
"SA organization meetings be opened unless that organization can give valid reasons to Myskania why their meetings should be closed."
Student Council, in their meeting Wednesday night,
protested this, claiming that Myskania had no power to
declare this ruling. It was brought out by Council members
that there was nothing in the constitution of Myskania
or in the SA constitution which provides. Myskania with
such powers as they have apparently assumed.
On the other hand, there is nothing in the Student
Council constitution which states that Council meetings
be closed to SA members. Myskania is not assuming the
power to levy this statement on organizations, rather, they
are challenging organizations and. bringing out the fact
that no organization does have the power to close their
meetings, as was tried last week by Council.
The News is wholeheartedly backing Myskania in their
challenge of the powers of these organizations and will
be interested in seeing the outcome of their protestations.
roressionaI Bloc
Last week the Academic Council approved a proposal
for the establishment of a professional semester bloc for
all Seniors starting with the Class of 1957. This professional bloc will include eight weeks of student teaching
and a student teacher seminar and eight weeks of Education courses and a course in the student's major field.
This reorganization of student teaching arrangements
was designed to handle efficiently the increased enrollment in the College. During the 1956-1957 school year it
is estimated that the College will have to provide student
teaching opportunities for nearly three hundred persons
in off-campus situations.
This plan will allow students many more opportunities
for off-campus teaching and will provide stuuents teaching at Milne a greater total experience. As a result of this
new proposal, crowded conditions at Milne would be alleviated since there would be a decrease in the number
of student teachers to be assigned there.
It is our opinion that this professional bloc will prove
very successful and by creating opportunities for greater
experience in student-teaching it will eventually result in
the production of better teachers.
A Time To Give
Congratulations are in order for the new SMILES
organization which was rejuvenated this year by a group
of interested students. Starting from scratch they now
have a constitution, budget, a set of officers and a very
admirable will to work. In existence less than two months,
they have started programs at the Albany Home for Children and the Clinton Square Neighborhood House, which
are progressing very successfully.
Right now, SMILES is planning a Christmas party
for the children and is asking for help from all of us, in
the form of small presents for the children. We feel that
SA should get behind SMILES and help them who are
willing to help the less fortunate. Now is the time to give.
Let's see those boxes filled to overflowing!

Council Selects State
As Next Year's Host
T h e a n n u a l Inter-Collegiate Association conference
was held a t Geneseo S t a t e T e a c h e r s College Friday
a n d Saturday. December 4 and 5. State's delegation
included J o a n Carlin '55, C h a i r m a n , Marjorie Kelleher a n d Robert Betscha, Juniors, and Clyde Payne '57.
T h e purpose of t h e ICA conference is to discuss
problems p e r t i n e n t to t h e New York S t a t e T e a c h e r s '
Colleges and to achieve unity between them. I n the
past, ICA was not a very active organization but
this year's conference went, a long way to s t r e n g t h e n
it. S t a r t i n g in February, a monthly newsletter will
be mailed out to all member colleges carrying interesting facts a n d news from each of the S t a t e T e a c h ers' Colleges. Revision of the ICA constitution was
begun in order to give the association more power.
Proposals were discussed to m a k e ICA a pressure
group in the State Legislature. I n view of the p r o g ress m a d e a t t h e recent conference Albany S t a t e
should do everything it can to back up this organization.
T h e program was divided i n t o four m a i n groups:
Inter-coilegiate relations, Professional attitudes, ICA
constitution revision, and S t u d e n t Government. Ideas
were gained from each of these groups t h a t could be
applied to Albany S t a t e to help us in different ways.
At the closing session, several colleges submitted
bids to have the next conference at their college.
Albany State was selected by a majority vote to be
the place of n e x t year's convention. T h e committee
is now working on plans to publicize t h e conference
within the school.

Open Letter to t h e Editor:
D r a m a t i c s and Art Council sincerely regrets having
had to turn away so many students, faculty, a n d
townspeople from the recent S t a t e College ' t h e a t r e
production of "Androcles a n d t h e Lion." This was due
to an unexpectedly large d e m a n d for tickets.
We hope to remedy t h e situation by having two
night performances for ah subsequent productions.
T h a n k you for your p a t r o n a g e and your u n d e r standing.
Sincerely yours,

We urge you to
consult the bulletin boards and posters around
c a m p u s a n d the a n n o u n c e m e n t s In Assembly,
T h e question of ouen or closed meetings for our
campus organizations h a s been a controversial one
for S t u d e n t Council, Myskania, and the News. U n doubtedly it has also raised discussions among others
who are not on these organizations, (If not, why not?)
This controversy is a recent one, and one which we
have gotten along w i t h o u t for a t least several years.
I t uiay be t h a t in these same years the reasoning
behind the exclusion of "outsiders" from a meetingh a s been lost. W h e n used as a protection for an i n dividual being discussed, or in the better p a r t of tact,
such exclusion seems justified a n d wise. W h e n the
protection is for those doing- t h e discussing, or if
used for unnecessary types of m a t t e r s , exclusion is
no longer justified "nor wise. Myskania's ruling a l t h o u g h positive, sidesteps a general policy and t h e
problem. An organization, no m a t t e r how carefully
it prepares an agenda, c a n n o t be certain t h a t its
meeting will not have new business which m i g h t r e quire both a decision from Myskania baous closure,
and also immediate action. A solution m i g h t better
be a t t a i n e d by organizations intelligently seeking the
purpose behind the "barring of n o n - m e m b e r s and
using it with discretion so t h a t t h e s t u d e n t body as
a whole will not feel t h a t their democratic toes have
been stepped upon.

ouintet lost its game to Hudson Vallev Tech 77-73 in a real thriller. The
little Peds led by a substantial margin throughout the first half, but

52 foul shots.
Another big factor in the JV's
loss was the presence of Hudson

Carl Ma.sson, freshman forward on

scored 31 points in leading Sayles
to a surprising one-point overtime

IM league. John led his SLS teammates to a 3-1 victory over KB by
bowling 186-183-182 for a 551 triple.

Sigma Phi Sigma
Replaces AEPhi
In compliance with the proclamation issued by the State University
of New York that all national sororities and fraternities be banned from
New York State Colleges for Teachers' campuses, the Albany Chapter
of Alpha Epsilon Phi has become
local. They have chosen a new
name, Sigma Phi Sigma, reports
Marilyn Werbolowsky '55, President.
Sigma Phi Sigma will retain its
present officers and ritual. A new
Constitut.on is nearing completion,
states Miss Werbolowsky.
The State University banned national groups due to discrimination
clauses in many of the Constitutions. AEPhi's Constitution contained no such clause. But as a national
group they had to follow the ruling.
Although the deadline for the disbanning of national sororities and
fraternities was set for 1958, AEPhi
decided to take immediate action.
In so doing, AEPhi as Sigma Phi
Sigma will remain a functioning
group on campus. Its members from
the Class of 1958 will graduate as
members of an active- sorority.
