T h e Representative Assembly will decide today
when a Student Association vote will be taken on the
College C a m p issue. Two weeks ago. a motion was
passed which would have had a SA vote on the
Warrensburg site today and Monday. In last, week's
session, the delegates passed a motion to reconsider
tin;. An a m e n d m e n t was also passed which would
permit a vote to be taken on two days in J a n u a r y .
Lack of time curtailed discussion, and the issue will
probably be settled today.
T h e motion with the
a m e n d m e n t , to be voted on today, reads as follows:
Voting on the Warrensburg C a m p be by absentee
ballot on J a n u a r y 19 and 20.
'Ihe administration of the college has put a down
payment on the Warrensburg site for the s t u d e n t
body. If SA is still undecided as to whether or not
to buy the land by December 31. the site will probably no longer be available for purchase.
Discussion on three available campsites began last
night in a special SA assembly at Brubacher. T h i s
di.-cussion will be continued today in Draper 349 and
at a n o t h e r SA assembly Tuesday evening. These three
sites have been thoroughly investigated and the following data has been compiled by Bruce King '5(3.
C h a i r m a n of the Surplus Committee.
The first site is near Warrensburg. approximately
HO miles from Albany, and is priced at $10,000. DippiI iM Pond, located on this land, is pictured above. The
70J acre site features one small beaver pond, the size
of which is about one-half mile by three-eights of a
mile. A natural horse-shoe shaped ridge surrounds
the pond, with the open end facing the Hudson
River. At present there is one building on the land,
a farm building. The structure could provide t e m porary shelter for small groups until other buildings
are constructed. A d e t i n u e advantage is t h a t the

in the region northwest of Gloversville. The quoted
price is $4,000 for approximately 1,000 acres of land.
There are three lakes partially included In the wooded
area. One cabin and one barn are the only s t r u c t u r e s
on the site. The chief body of water, Irving Pond,
has several other owners on its shore front. T h e
water level of the large lake fluctuates at times from
10 to l'j feet because of tlie operation of a power
dam or. the southwest end of the lake. T h e only road
leading to the property is on a n o t h e r t r a c t of land.
To reach the proposed site, onv must either go around
the entire lake, go by boat, or travel through a p a t h less brush area. T h e two buildings now s t a n d i n g
could provide temporary shelter for small groups.
The third site is located on Lake C h a m p l a m , s o u t h west of Burlington, Vermont. This site, approximately
142 miles from Albany, is the most highly developed
area of Ihe three. T h e price for the 15 acre tract is
$05,000. Natural features include a wooded a r e a on
a sand beach fronting on Lake Champlain. Buildings
include a sizeable recreation hall and dining hall with
excellent kitchen facilities. T h e dining hall accommodates 125 people. The hall is pine panelled witli
a glass exterior. There are hi cabins housing 75 people. Ea h cabin has a picture window and a private
bath. The physical plant also includes a sewage disposal plant iseptic t a n k s i , hot and cold water, and
electricity. One cabin is insulated for winter. F u r n i ture and equipment is included in the sale price.
There are ample facilities for boating, fishing, a t h letics islniffleboard, horseshoes, baseball, handball,

Today the Legislature will vote on the motion postponing absentee balloting on the Warrensburg Camp until
January 19 and 20 By that time the camp will probably
no longer be held for us by the Adminstration and our
chance to buy it will be out the window. The reasons behind this motion were that we don't know enough about

Student Council Wednesday evening, voted sixteen to
four to recommend to the Legislature that voting on the
camp be postponed until after Christmas. Furthermore,
they voted eleven to seven with two abstentions to recommend to Student Association to vote "no" on the Warrensburg Camp if voting occurs before Christmas. If Council
feels SA does not know enough about these camps to vote
wisely, we would like to know why Council feels itself
qualified to recommend to SA to defeat the Warrensburg
camp! They heard a brief ten-minute description of the
two newly-proposed campsites, after which they came to
this decision. If they are able to decide between the camps
in ten minutes, then certainly SA should be able to decide
after the hearing last night, the assembly today, the information printed on page one of this issue, and a proposed
hearing Tuesday evening.

Magazine of the Month
Tne new magazine of the m o n t h
is The National Review, "a weekly
journal of c u r r e n t opinion." It is
designed to present t h e conservative
side on current issues, which is in
itself not a bad idea, b u t as i.s so
often the case in political m a g a zines, it goes so far oil to one side,
t h a t the result is w h a t can only be
termed a somewhat perverted and
illogual viewpoint on everything
from politics to homosexuality. T h e
editor is William Buckley, who
achieved some sort of a success as
an educational theologian in m a t ters concerning Yale
some time ago. It seems to be anything from against t h e League of
Women Voters to Geneva, t h e Eisenhower administration, a n d of
course, "liberals." T h e word liberal,
covers a multitude of sins and e n compasses anyone who voted for
either party's presidential c a n d i d a t e
since 1940. To help in explaining
what a liberal is, a n "expose" is
published each week titled "The
Liberal Line," to keep us informed
on their activities, which they clearly regard as somewhat subversive.
It docs have some kind words to
say about a few Democrats. In one
issue they offer a weak apology for
one Eugene Talmadge, an ex-govcrnor of Georgia who achieved some
notoriety as demagogue about twenty years ago. The magazine seems
destined to fall captive, as so many
other conservative measures have,
to illogical viewpoint, and fascist
tendencies. No one will doubt the
need for a conservative journal, but
it is not as desperate as T h e National
al Review would have us think. The
Hearst papers still seem to be publishing. T h e advice is to read these,
the arguments seem to be a little
more valid there, t h a n in ' (he N a lional Review.
The meeting on busines m a n a g e ment gave us a clue as to how to
obtain more national ads. Maybe
with these and more money from

Looking back on last year's dismal

week Paul Carpentier, brother of
Dave, of R P I , rolled a new high
single of 235 to set a new high for
the season and lead the Engineers
to a 5-0 win over State. This week
brother Dave clobbered the woods
for a sparkling 256 game to head the
attack of the Indians.
Lose By Few Pins
Despite losing all five points the
Peds had two respectable games
which they lost by only a few pins.
In the first contest the local quintet
put together an 872 total, only to
lose out when Siena came up with
a n 889 game. In the second encounter they slumped to 782 while
their opponents were racking up 884.
T h e finale, however, was t h e real
heartbreaker as the locals, led by
Joe Clement's 204, came up with an
854 game but were second best to
the Indians who had but eleven pins
more, 865. Siena captured the two
points for total pinnage, hitting
2578 to the Peds' 2518.

Gary Holway to the roster. In two

Stata College's varsity basketball
team opened its 1955-56 season last
Friday night a t the Union Fieldhouse opposing R P I in one game of
an inaugural tripleheader. It was
a sad opening for S t a t e fans, as the
Peds lost a squeaker, 52-51.
It was not the size of the court
which caused State's loss, but the
two deciding factors were R P I ' s accuracy from the foul line, and the
Peds failure of not getting the ball

Dempster Injured
S t a t e slowed down as the third
quarter opened, and the Hawks, led
by Miller, began to close State's
lead. Their threat didn't last long,
however, as Sig Smith began to hit
from the outside, and J o h n Rookwood and Holway added a few
[joints from the foul line. It was
in this quarter t h a t Denny D e m p s ter, the play maker of the team,
skidded and injured his leg. He was
carried from the court, and may be
lost to the team for six weeks.
Denny's injury didn't stop the
Peds' scoring, however. In fact, it
may have been an incentive to their
last quarter spurt. Coach Sauers
substituted his entire bench in the
last ten minutes, in order to give
his starters a rest. Lew Carr added
ten points to the score sheet in the
last quarter, to make his total for

last year and Coach Sauers is expecting to employ h i m a lot this
season. . . . T h e school spirit displayed at S a t u r d a y night's game was
certainly a welcome relief from the
declining spirit displayed in the last
couple of years. Now t h a t we have
a great team, along with the necessary school spirit, perhaps more
steps will be t a k e n to schedule
State's game somewhere other t h a n
the Page bandbox. . . . By the way,
did you notice how cool the atmosphere got starting at the second
half? We'd swear one of the players seemed almost frozen. Yes,
many are cold but few are frozen.
. . . It's our sincerest hope t h a t this
trial run of the eight page News is
put into practice in the near future.
If it becomes a reality, this departm e n t will share in the expansion to
Ihe tune of one page. This will give
us a greater opportunity to give you
a wider coverage of tlie sport's
scene at State. We'd like to make
one point, however. We are badly
understaffed and need more writers. Anyone interested in writing
sports stories is asked to contact
Ihis writer al the Publications Office Tuesday or Wednesday night
or write via student mail. . . . Nolice the schedule listed below in the
wrestling story. Perhaps it may
come as news to some that the m a t men are wrestling on a varsity basis this season. It would prove a very
interesting and enjoyable time for
those who have never seen a college
wrestling match before as well as
those who have had Ihe opportunity
to see one. . . . All you skiing enthusiasts arc asked to check the
college calendar. There will be three
daily sessions of dry skiing on Dorm
Field. It should prove to be quite
a gathering. . . . A lew predictions
for what they arc worth. Potter Club

Supreme Court Outlaws Segregation

The Nation
Big news in the nation this week
Is the recent Supreme Court ruling
regarding segregation. The Supreme
Court ruled that there shall be no
segregation on Interstate travel on
twelve railroad companies, one rail
terminal company and one bus company. This ruling has been hailed
by segregatlonallsts as the beginning of total segregation in the
South. The law does not affect all
parties practicing segregation, and
does not affect segregation in intrastate travel, however, this is one
of the most sweeping rulings issued
by the Supreme Court.
