well-rounded schedule of novice debates with area colleges, announces
Phyllis Lyeth '56, President. In the
next tew weeks, debates between
novice teams from State and those

Student Council:
Judgement Day
The first order of business facing the new representative legislature will be the much-discussed, controversial
Debate Council resolution concerning the religious clubs.
(The new resolution may be found in its entirety on page
one.)
Student Council defeated the second proposal by a
vote of twelve to five. Casting their votes in the negative
were the five members of the Junior class who, undoubtedly, were following the suggestion by their class that they
defeat the motion. However, it must be pointed out that
the Class of '57 voted on the issue after only a five minute
discussion. This was the same issue Council had debated
for three weeks. The Class of 1957, in our opinion did not
discuss the question long enough and did not have basis
to warrant a decisive vote upon it. Had they been there
for a full discussion, we predict that their decision would
be altered.
This new resolution is essentially the same as the previous one. The major change being that there will be a one
hour limit put upon the meeting time for the religious clubs.
It still prevents any other groups from meeting for that
time on Thursday nights, which is, in effect, limiting freedom of speech and assemblage. It still doesn't give religious
clubs who are not under the budget, the right to ask for
such a ridiculous request.
If religious clubs are given the right to an exclusive
time for meetings, every other group on campus has a double right to make such a request, (in view of the fact that
they are under the SA budget.)
You representatives will be asked to consider this proposal this morning and possibly come to a vote on it. Student Council has recommended its defeat. We strongly
urge that you respect that recommendation and vote the
resolution down.
Use Your Head, Not Your Pencil..
Thursday and Friday of this coming week, you freshmen will be asked to go to the polls and vote for leaders
of your class for the coming year. The people you elect
will assume the responsibility of guiding the Class of 1959
and helping to establish its reputation at State College.
For such positions you will want capable, responsible people, ones whom you will respect, admire and, most important, follow willingly.
To vote for such persons you must know these candidates. If, not knowing them, you cast your votes with
indifference, basing your decision either on hearsay or
just the order in which the names appear on the ballot,
you may be doing your class and yourself great harm.
In past years people have been screaming "get out and
vote," "exercise your right to vote." But the main issue at
stake has been consistently overlooked and ignored. The
emphasis has been placed, heretofore, on the ritual of
voting rather than the thought behind the vote.
Now, we are not urging you to stay away from the
voting booth next week because you don't know all the
candidates. You may know three out of ten who are running. If you do, and you think these are capable people
and worthy of the office for which they are running, then
come and vote for them! But, under no circumstances
should you look at a ballot, see 40 names unknown to you,
on it and proceed to number them down in order, 1 to 40.
It's not fair to you, nor to the candidates.
Many times people are elected who should not be, because of this unintelligent voting.
You freshmen have almost a full week to consider the
candidates nominated as your leaders. Study your ballot
carefully and use your intelligence in voting. Your one
vote for the candidate you choose will mean more, in the
long run, than a number of votes for people you don't know.
Use your vote intelligently!!!

True Life Story at Palace
The Girl on the Eed Velvet Swing
is the true story of Evelyn Nesbit
Thaw, a sweet, innocent girl who
has two millionaires on the string.
Back and forth she goes on her red
velvet swing, looking sweet and innocent, while Farley Granger, the
jealous husband shoots Ray Milland,
his rival. Evelyn, sweet and innocent, comes down from the red swing
long enough to testify in court, and
have her husband put away. Such
are the passions of the rich, I suppose. This all really happened about
50 years ago—it was in all the papers—and Evelyn is still alive. Bet
she's still riding back and forth on
the red swing too, looking sweet and
innocent.
Problem of Youth at Strand
Hoods, hoods, hoods, all over the
place, and there's James Dean himself right in the middle of the whole
mess, acting as hoody as the next
one. The movie is Rebel Without a
Cause, and deals with all the sensational aspects of juvenile delinquency. Be sure to lock your car
when you go. This is the sort of
thing that could give local hoods a
few good ideas.
Song- and Dance at Madison
If you like your optimism set to
music, you'll probably enjoy It's Always Fair Weather at the Madison.
The plot is very weak but nobody
really cares because it's only there
to tie in the song and dance numbers. Beautiful Cyd Charrise stars,
along with Dan Dailey and Gene
Kelly, two of America's oldest hoofers. You'll be surprised to see how
they can still get around, at their
age. Look for a funny spoof about
TV.
Marty
The Delaware's latest offering i.s
called Marty. You've all heard of it,
no doubt. It's about a man who's
looking for a girl, It's all very plaintive and wistful, and at times maybe too much so, but it i.s very well
done and a worthwhile movie.

To the Editor:
One of the basic ingredients of
critical thought i.s the viewing of
any given problem in a larger cantext in order to understand its relationship with other ideas.
Last week's editorial on the Debate
Council resolution in behalf of the
religious clubs is an example of narrow selective thought so typical to
the uninformed. Apparently, many
characters in this college selectively
refuse to view this simple resolution
in its larger context.
The Religious Clubs have been
troubled by lack of student participation for several years. This resolution has been presented to prevent
other organizational meetings from
conflicting with meetings of the religious organizations.
In its larger context:
1) If any group on campus can
reserve a special time in a necessarily limited social calendar for
their meetings, be it two hours a
month or two minutes a year, they
are denying any other group the
right to meet at that time.
2) It i.s to be realized that the
religious clubs are burdened with a
membership problem, but i.s the solution to this problem the elimination of competition—or i.s it rather
a membership increase ON THE
MERITS OF THE RELIGIOUS
ORGANIZATIONS THEMSELVES?

To the Faculty and Student Body:
Since my freshman year <I am
now a Senior) I have understood
that there was a certain amount of
interest in the improvement of the
faculty-student relationship here at
State College. Perhaps I have been
mistaken. I believe that efforts have

A MODEST PROPOSAL
Debate Council is asking entirely too much by requesting Student
Association to willingly give up two full hours of its precious tunc each
month for the exclusive use of the religious organizations on campus.
Is it reasonable to expect the student body to submit to the loss of 14
entire hours out of the little time remaining until June? As the opponents of this motion have brought out, SA activities are va.stly more
important. The elimination of these 14 hours, where our freedom to
assemble would not be honored would be catastrophic. After all, SA has
already succumbed to such regulations in regard to "All-College" functions and dramatic presentations. How much can they expect of us? A
line must be drawn.
And so, we propose that this motion not even be discussed. File it
in the circular file! Burn it! It's blasphemy! It's anarchy! It's progress.
SEEING IS BELIEVING
The eighth wonder of the world has manifested its presence on the
University of the State of New York. There was actually a day last
week when you couldn't place your empty coke bottles in the rack in
the Commons. —They were all full! Will wonders never cease??
IT'S THE LAW
Fire ordinances .say there are certain places in every building where
smoking is prohibited. It appears to us that everyone should be aware
of this. Not only the students, but . . .
GASTRIC GENUFLECTIONS
Have you noticed the sanitary sugar cubes in the cafeteria? Wrapped
yet!!! They almost cure the heartburn you get from staring at the newdishes and the green walls.
TRIED, TESTED, AND FOUND WANTING
We understand that the new face with whiskers at the Phi Delta
house, which we scooped the college on several weeks ago in this column,
has begun to lose its glamour and is on its way out. Too bad, girls!
SURPLUS
What do you keep in your deep freeze? Eskimos keep blubber; housewives keep meat and vegetables; Colombians keep papaya. Guess who
keeps money??
SARDINES, ANYONE??
If it weren't for the unfortunate habit of breathing, which has been
with us since birth, the assembly last Friday would have been uncomfortable, rather than unbearable. It was very scientific, though. It conclusively proved that two bodies cannot occupy the same space at the
same time mo matter how hard they try). We are taking this opportunity to cast two votes to the effect that future assembly programs
of great drawing power be held in the gym, if possible.

There are those students who, u n happily, face conflicts. This is easily solved. Policies of government

Sport Spotlight this week lulls on
J o h n Rookwood, able fullback and
quarter back of Potter Club. This
week the Spotlight falls on a player
not only for his feat in a single
game but r a t h e r for his performance
in two encounters. J o h n led the
Club to two victories.
Last T h u r r d a y against SLS he
completed many aerials and also
was on the receiving end of a
touchdown pass which he grabbed
out of the h a n d s of two defensive
halfbacks.
Again on Tuesday as T h e Club
toppled APA 27-2, J o h n , who switched to quarterback, was outstanding
as he led t h e m to a decisive win.
J o h n figured in 25 of the 27 Potter
points. He completed three touchdown passes and grabbed a n o t h e r
aerial in the end zone. He also
threw a pass for an extra point.
Congratulations to yon. J o h n , tor n

During the past week four games
were played in the i n t r a m u r a l league. Last T h u r s d a y on Beverwyck
Park, Hilltop a n d Ridge played to
a 2-2 deadlock which left these two
teams tied for t h e league lead. T h e
only scoring was the result of two
safeties. On the following day the
colorful H u m p s spurned on by m a n agers Clyde Payne and Joe T a g g a r t
used a n array of deceiving plays to
baffle and beat the winless Van
Deraee Hall team. Joe Barton passed to Bob Bosomworth for the
Humps' first touchdown of the year.
Pete Barbagelata grabbed a n o t h e r
aerial for the extra point. Bruce
King and Dick English also covered
fumbles in the end /one for two
safeties as the H u m p s won by the
score of 11-0. Two forfeits were also
awarded to Hilltop and Ridge when
Van Derzee and Sayles failed to
field teams.
Potter Gains First
Potter Club copped first place in
the Dorm Field League as they
stopped Sigma Lambda Sigma 12-2
on Thursday and routed APA on
the following Wednesday.
In the
first encounter Dave Stark intercepted a pass on the 15 yard line
and romped to pay dirt. Joe Zizzi
connected with J o h n Rookwood for
a n o t h e r touchdown to end the scoring. EEP's offense moved steadily
against Alpha Pi Alpha as they
scored four touchdowns, a safety
and an extra poinl. Rookwood completed three touchdown pusses and
received a n o t h e r thrown by Joe Zizv'\. J o h n also hit Sam Krchniak for
an extra point.
Standings Next Week
In next week's issue of I lie News
the standings of the two leagues
will lie printed.

To Gain Second Win Of Year
By ZACK CLEMENTS
RPI Soccermen
Beat Garciamen
In Monday Rain
By ZACK CLEMENTS
In a cold driving rain the S t a t e
soccer team was defeated by a
strong R.P.I. "11" last Monday on
the hitter's field by a score of 2-0.
Under menacing skies t h e R.P.I,
men began to press offensively but
were met with a formidable Ped
defense. The ball was constantly
exchanged with neither team scoring. Shortly after F r a n Nancetti
was removed from t h e game, t h e
Engineers scored their first goal.
Ruin Conies
During the entire second period
the Peds pressed offensively a n d
played fine defense as well. S u d d e n ly it began to rain a n d snow, a n d
t h e sky became so d a r k t h a t t h e
lights had to be turned on. T h e
field became slick and m u d puddles
hampered play. T h e period ended
with neither team scoring.
With the field so slippery the
second half became filled with fiery
tempers and Carl Maxson as well
as an unidentified Engineer were
ejected from the game for fighting.
T h e Garciamen led by peppery Bob
Backer continued to p r e i s but to no
avail as the period ended with no
scoring.
R.P.I. Scores Final
T h e fourth period saw S t a t e fighting harder and outplaying R.P.I, but
they couldn't score. W i t h the field
like a huge pond and only m i n u t e s
to play, the men from Troy scored
one more goal and held the S t a t e s men off to gain the victory for the
second year in a row.
Last Wednesday the S t a t e soccer
"11" pulled out a 3-1 overtime t h r i l l er to defeat Adelphi College a n d
gain their second home win on Bob
Backer's goal.
T h e S t a t e s m e n took t h e opening
kickoff a n d carried t h e ball into t h e
visitors' territory where it r e m a i n e d
until S t a t e was awarded a penalty
kick which Bill Bonesteel converted
into t h e Ped's first score of the day
only two m i n u t e s after play h a d
begun. T h e home team remained in
visitors' territory for t h e majority
of the period with Bob Backer a n d
Ed J o n e s leading the way offensively. In the few m o m e n t s of this
period t h a t Adelphi did have t h e
ball in Ped ground it was cleared
quickly by fullback Carl Maxson.
T h e second period was featured
by fine defensive play by b o t h
teams
especially
the
Islander's
goalie who was a t h o r n in the Ped's
side all day. Sloppy play kept t h e
G a r c i a m e n from capitalizing on several scoring opportunities. During
this period goalie Tito Gugllelmone
m a d e several key stops to p r e v e n t
t h e Citymen from scoring. T h e half
c a m e t o a close with S t a t e leading
1-0.
Peds O n Defense
T h e s t a r t of the second half saw
t h e Adelphi "11" come out a n d b e gin to dominate play, causing t h e
Peds to go on the defensive. Heads
up play by Al L e d e r m a n and some
pretty ball h a n d l i n g by Lou Delsignore kept S t a t e in the game. Coach
G a r c i a a t this point brought in a
few of his subs who held t h e fort
for t h e r e m a i n i n g time in the p e riod.
T h e final q u a r t e r was nearly e n tirely consumed in front of either
team's goal. E a c h t e a m was pressing—then t a k i n g t h e defensive. With
only 6 minutes left to play it looked
like S t a t e was going to coast to a

"Europeanization" plan which was
supported by his pro-French government. Major factors in voting were
the unpopularity of the Hoffman
regime and the basic ethnological
ties to the Germanic people as opposed to the French. This vote will
probably increase tension between
France and Germany and heap more
burdens upon the already shaky
shoulders of the Faure government,
One can not help think of 1935
when a similar election ended in a
similar vote. Let's hope that two
powers can settle this difficulty
reasonably and that there is not an
epidemic of intense nationalism in
either country.
The Geneva Conference of Foreign Ministers is again tackling the
problems of German reunification
and European security. The Western powers will demand a treaty
signed by the Big Four and a
united Germany which will provide
safeguards against aggression. It is
strange that a nation we would
have "agriculturallzed" ten years
ago is now being wooed by both the
East and the West, engaged in a
titantic ideological struggle. The industrial strength of Germany and
its strategic location in Europe may
well be the factors which tip the
scales in years to come.
Asia seems to be shining with the
