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.

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 lake is entirely within the proposed property lines, which would give t h e college exclusive rights to the At last Sunday's meeting of S t u d e n t Union Boa I'd elections were held to fill two vacancies.

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.

Associate Editors Issue Report On Collegiate Press Conference Outing Club Plans Excursion bwc f>ta*e! PAGE 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 University 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.

Ped ft tabled. . . . by BOB KAMl'F Looking back on last year's dismal two wins and sixteen defeats of t h e 1954-55 basketball squad, it is h a r d to picture State having as bad a record this year. With improvem e n t s m a d e in all d e p a r t m e n t s , the Peds have opened what looks to be a wining basketball season. S t a t e o u t scored their opponents by t h i r t y t h r e e points this weekend, and only missed having two wins by one point. I n last Friday's evenly m a t c h e d contest, State lost mainly because the boys from R P I were a little hot on the foul line. It's not in every game t h a t a t e a m makes 72 per cent of their foul shots, but Varsity Bowlers Bow To Siena; Drop To Fourth State's varsity bowling team was blanked for the second consecutive time last Tuesday evening to fall into fourth place in the" Albany District Inter - Collegiate Bowling League. This week it was t h e Siena I n d i a n s who waved the whitewash brush over the locals. Again a C a r pentier this time Dave who proved to be the culprit as far as t h e S t a t e s m e n were concerned. Last 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. t h a t ' s w h a t R P I did Friday, S t a t e m a d e 62 per cent of its fouls, which is nothing to laugh about. I n S a t u r day's game, the Peds hit for 56 per cent of tseir fouls, while New Paltz could only m a n a g e to hit for 48 per cent of their fouls, while New Paltz was not t h a t tight t h a t fouls could have m a d e a difference. Another imp o r t a n t factor in the improvement of S t a t e this year is the addition of Gary Holway to the roster. In two games, this boy scored 42 points, and by the looks of things, h e T j scoring like t h a t in future games. Dempster's Injury May H u r t It's not only in the a p p e a r a n c e of Gary Holway t h a t an improvement has been shown, but t h e entire team looks well organized on the court. In the R P I game, Don Mayer, Jack Miuon. and Denny Dempster were o u t s t a n d i n g as was Holway. In S a t urday's game, J o h n Rockwood, Lew Carr, Sig Smith, and Holway were outstanding, though all of the boys played well. One t h i n g t h a t may h u r t the squad at this point is the injury of the speedy playmaker, Denny Dempster. Denny's leg inJury may keep him en" the squad for six weeks, which m e a n s he will miss at least five games.

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 by BOB BACKER Peds failure of not getting the ball Last Friday a t the Union Field to Gary Holway more often. Holway had scored ten points in the first House Gym, the Albany J.V.'s lost half, but had to settle for four in their first game to the Union Frosh the entire second half.

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 the night, 13. From the foul line, S t a t e sank 32 out of 57. while the Hawks hit for 15 of 31.

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.

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. The prospects for an increase in farm income are just about nil. Most speculators agree that the farmer is in for another bad year. Farm income has dropped from 16 billion dollars in 1952 to an estimated 10 billion dollars in 1956.
