Follow The Leaders . . .
The News wishes to call the attention of
every organization that is facing problems
of leadership and apathy; every class that
is trying to find unity; and every member
of Student Association who believes that
spirit and constructive action are results
of a past era at State College, to the work
accomplished by the Junior class this year.
Among other things, they have originated a Junior Weekend, plans for a revamped banquet, and a completely new and
different Junior Prom. They are probably
the only class in State College history to
be chided by Myskania because they wanted to do too much. The officers inform us
that these new activities and events have
been planned, as any new activity and
event is planned, primarily to create class
spirit and unity. Their success can be measured by the response from the class. To
date, class meetings have actually been
crowded; the class as a whole, not just
certain individuals or factions, is working
on Junior projects, and last week, an almost unheard of event took place. The class
voted unanimously to commend their leaders for the excellent job they were doing.
It is a remarkable record for two reasons. The annual "Junior Slump" has been
as much of a tradition here as the Rivalry
Sing. And this particular class of '57 almost faded from existence in its Sophomore year, due to a supposed "lack of interest." The rebirth and success of the Junior class should explode the commonly accepted myth that there is in all parts of
State College student life, "lack of interest." We believe that spirit and interest will
always arise under capable, enthusiastic
leadership. The Junior class is fortunate
in having such leadership, and we commend the leaders, and the class as a whole,
for the excellent work they have done this
Tonight, not just the Juniors, but the
entire school will have the chance to journey a short distance to the Circle Inn. The
News advises that if you have not already
done so, that you dust off your formal, or
semi-formal attire and plan to attend. In
addition to seeing the Junior class in action, you will probably have the most enjoyable evening you have had here at State
College, in a long, long time.

Progress . . .
In an effort to clear up some of the confusion which surrounds the first week of
school in September when so many freshman receptions are scheduled, and Activities Day in October, Student Council has
appointed a committee to investigate and
come up with some solutions. Last week
the Improvement of Activities Committee,
composed of three Council members, presented an excellent plan which, if put into
effect, would solve many problems.
Basically, the plan states that Activities
Day be reorganized as an Activities Week
in which two organizational receptions
would be held each night of the week. The
committee has combined all the organizations on campus into ten groups in order
to limit the receptions to two each night
for five nights.
For instance, Pedagogue, State College
News, Primer and Press Bureau would become the Publications Group and would
hold a joint reception one evening in the
Upper Lounge of Brubacher while another
group, say the Religious Clubs, would be
receiving freshmen in the Lower Lounge.
Each organization would be entitled to a
reception and would have an equal chance
to present themselves to the freshmen.
This would also eliminate Activities Day
as it stands now—with all the organizations spending time and money preparing
booths and displays for a pitiful number
of freshmen who do show up. Instead, the
frosh would be given a chance to "sign on
the dotted line" at each of these receptions
and would better understand just what
they are doing. Revamped, Activities Week
would be culminated with the traditional
banner presentation and Sophomore skit
in Page Hall.
This committee has done a commendable job and has accomplished something
that has been badly needed for some time.
They are continuing along this line and
are now in the process of reworking the
Social Calendar for next year. It is encouraging to see that Student Council is awakening to the many problems caused by
overcrowding, existing in this college and is
attempting to do something about them.
Days are long, boring;
Nights are longer, sleepless.

Nothing is wrong;
It's just a n o t h e r slump!
Since time immemorial a problem has and will face (ad infinitum)
the species commonly called Man. This problem has been given the
n a m e of the "slump," and is defined by Webster as ". . . a marked decline or falling off, as in attention, interest, activity . . ." Often used
by us procrastinators as a .seemingly legitimate excuse for neglecting
duties, the slump creeps periodically into the lives of most college students. There are the freshman slump, the Sophomore .slump, the Junior
a n d Senior slumps, and do and behold!) I recently discovered t h a t
there is the graduate slump, a slump which out-slumps all other slumps.
I am convinced t h a t the .slump was conceived at Albany State, but
if I am wrong, who will dare deny t h a t it has found a permanent residence here? Frosh fall into this lethargic state when their lust for home
overcomes their sense of duty and their allegiance to Alma Mater;
Sophomores have usually forgotten about home, and are still too unsettled even to consider allegiance. Rivalry no longer has quite (lie same

a ready victim of the slump.
One might think t h a t graduation would be the terminal point for
t h e slump, since the ever-hallowed bachelor's degree has already been
obtained. Alas and alack! It's not so! With a new, firm set of convictions and a strung desire to further his education and obtain another

Let's look a t the record. I n 1917
Myskania led the first weekly a s sembly, wrote the Constitution for
S t u d e n t Association, and provided
a State College News Board and a
News Constitution. In 1918, Rivalry
was initiated "because the college
needed an unified spirit." I t was
during these years (1918-1923) t h a t
Myskania devoted its time t n a m l y
to college traditions. First we had
the tradition of frosh using t h e rear
and side doors; then came the B a n ner h u n t and t h e b a n on frosh
wearing high school insignia. In
1924 the Seniors began wearing caps
and gowns on Moving-Up Day. Also
in this year, with the increased e n rollment came a drive to campaign
for residence halls. In 1926 Campus
Commission and Debate Council
were organized, and in 1927 rules
for revoting were set up. T h e years
from 1931-1938 saw t h e i n a u g u r a tion of Activities Day, a collegewide Red Cross drive, a n d t h e ini t i a t i o n of discussion groups between students and faculty for the
purpose of settling s t u d e n t probipms Tn 1041 Mvsknnin went tn
icms. i n U4i MjsKania went to
war and victory drives went on the
program. 1943 saw the first all-wornan Myskania, and in 1945, along
with V-Day, came t h a t confusing
preferential voting. Beanies were
ushered in in 1946—frosh were to
wear them from the second Monday of first semester till T h a n k s giving recess. This year also marked
recommendations and suggestions
from Myskania regarding its successors. Additional nominations were
to be made by the S t u d e n t Association. T h e seniority rule prevailed in

On School Camp
Monday night there will be a
meeting of Student Council in the
Government Room at Brubacher.
This meeting will replace the usual
Wednesday night meeting.
Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m. in
Brubacher's game room there will
be a general airing and discussion
on the possible uses of the surplus.
The current surplus is $17,637.
Also at this meeting, the possibility of purchasing a College Camp
will be discussed. The camp is located near Warrensburg. N. Y. Yesterday, a group of students went up
and viewed the property, and at this
meeting, they will give their reports. Members of the administration will be on hand to answer any
questions pertaining to the camp.
One of the features of this camp
is a pond located in the middle of
the site. The name of this pond is
Dippekill. It is three-eighths miles
long and one-half mile wide. There
are 700 acres included with this
pond for the cost of $10,000. The administration has checked into the
details carefully and approved the
possibility of our purchasing it.
Sunday, another group will make the
trip to Warrensburg to inspect this
site. Warrensburg is about 75 miles
north of Albany on Route 9, just a
short distance from Lake George.
This site would serve as a frosh
camp, and afford a spot for various

attributed to the printers in Hudson.
In keeping with news standards,
the News was rated excellent in
such things as coverage, features,
sports coverage, typography and
makeup. The short news features
are written in the best professional
style, whereas the "Common-Stater''
was warned against using pointless
and non-essential material.
The majority of the physical properties of the News were considered
excellent. Pictures on page one were
well placed, however, the display
below the fold could be improved.
Pictures could be used more frequently throughout the paper. In
general the typography of the News,
according to the scorebook, is attractive and easy to read.

Last Wednesday evening a special assembly was held
in Brubacher to discuss the possible uses of surplus. The
main point for suggested expenditure at this time is the
proposed purchase of a school camp located north of Albany in the Adirondacks. Dr. Evan R. Collins, President
of the College, and Dr. Oscar Lanford, Dean of the College,
were present to represent the administration and answer
any questions possible in regards to its physical make-up
or problems of purchasing it.
The discussion of the camp opened with a report by
Bruce King '56, Chairman of the Surplus Committee out
of Student Council on the technical aspects of the camp.
King told the group that the camp consists of approximately 700 acres near Warrensburg, N. Y., which is about 75
miles north of Albany. The area the camp encompasses is
undeveloped woodland with a lake located approximately
in the center. The cost of the campsite in its present condition is $10,000.
Possible uses for the territory were mentioned in the
report. Those listed were possibilities of use as a field

recreation, a base for the workings
of Outing Club, a center for a Camping Education program, a workshop
for the Summer Theater Group, and
with expansion of facilities it could
be used as a frosh camp sometime
in the future.
In response to an inquiry as to
the operation of other State Teachers' College camps Student Council
minutes were read which included a
survey of these units made three
years ago.
Discussion followed on the development of the area. It was pointed
out that the cost of erecting buildings might be defrayed by using
student and faculty labor. In this
way it was felt that the project
would help to tie the students and
faculty of the college closer together.
The fact was also brought out that
the development of the camp would
not be completed within a short
period of time but rather a slow improvement. This means that the
camp could not be used for a fresh
camp immediately. President Collins pointed out, in response to the
suggestion of a mortgage to pay for
the construction of facilities, that
the interest would make it unprofitable in the long run.
Following the pointing out of the
fact that the camp is easily accessible a straw vote was taken to sample the opinion of the students present. The results of this small group
was almost unanimously la favor
of the purchase of the site.
