Within the mind of each individual there
is a standard and grouping of values. Some
things are held very high on this scale. We
not only stand in awe of these heights but
we also respect them. One of these high
values is justice and impartiality.
This is one of the qualifications we assign
to each individual on Myskania, the Judicial Society of the college. All freshmen
stand in awe of the honorary group but
with each successive college year of a student, the members become more human, as
opposed to divine, and less respected in the
eyes of their fellow students.
Unfortunately this attribute of impartiality has been betrayed. Even Myskania has
fallen to a vote which might be construed
to have been cast on personalities rather
than on concrete qualifications. This was
evidenced by the absences in this week's
list of their recommendations and suggestions for their replacements.
We have this question to ask the present
Myskania. Are you serving the judicial
function for which you were founded? Did
you consider your decision from an impartial viewpoint?
During our trips around the school this
week we have readily noted some of the
effects of sorority pledging. We have seen
stuffed animals, knee socks and various and
sundry articles in an attempt to see which
sorority can sponsor the most ridiculous
looking pledges.
We have noticed little response to the
appeal for workers for Pedagogue, but there
will be an awful hue and cry when the
yearbooks do not come out on time. In
fact, we fail to notice anything being done
by the pledges which even closely resembles
constructive action.
The big problem with pledges seems to
be a sort of misplaced allegiance. All other
activities seem to fall as pledge duties assume gigantic importance. Pledges give up
much time performing their duties—time
which could be spent for better purposes.
The first allegiance any student has is to
his school. If you don't believe this statement you don't belong in college. Sorority
or anything else is secondary to the welfare
of your school.
Get Well
The purpose of sorority pledging is supWe think that the Editors are expressing posed to unite the members of a sorority,

saying that we are happy to hear that Dr. the members of the student body? With
Murphy and the men in the laboratory with this college growing at the present rapid

proving rapidly. We also wish to commend uniting the school. As for what projects
the four on their attitude and high spirits could or should be pursued, we leave that
during their prolonged stay in the hospital. up to each sorority.
I would like to use t h e school
paper as a means of expressing my
t h a n k s to the students who sent
cards and best wishes during my
recent sojourn in bed. As future
teachers I am sure the s t u d e n t s at
Albany recognize t h a t little things
like this are among the additional
compensations t h a t teachers enjoy.
I was particularly pleased to hear
from students I had not had in class
nor to the best of knowledge had
not known by n a m e . Perhaps I
might realistically admit t h a t only
those who had not had me as a
teacher could sincerely wish me a
rapid recovery.
Sorry as I am that I missed the
Faculty Show, f can't help but feel
t h a t it was a break for everyone
since they had an opportunity to
see Dr. Johnson who did a terrific
job. Incidentally, this was not the
first time he bailed me out. When
we were at Cornell together he took
over in a similar situation. T h e
sucess of State Fair as well as the
Campus Chest drive last term leads
me to t h e topic t h a t I was to write
about before my illness. T h e lack
of informal study or contact between student., and pro lessors.
I came to Albany almost two
years ago, because I was sold on the
college, the faculty, and the grad-
uates of the school. I was born and
brought up in Albany and my contacts with the college go back a
number of years. I came to Albany,
not because I wanted a job, but
because I liked the situation. I still
like it and hope to be here a long
time; .however, there is one attitude
0 rsituation in the s t u d e n t body I
would like to see changed, and I
believe t h a t the change depends on
the student leadership that lias
shown so successfully in t h e many
worthwhile activities at the college.
It is, however, a challange to the
entire student body.
Based on my experiences it the
College, I am bothered by the feeling at Albany thai is known as
"apple-polishing" i veterans can give

it can be p r i n t e d ' : when a .student
talks to a teacher other t h a n in the
classroom. My experiences may be
different from most of my colleague, an I t hope ' h a t '.hey are.
1 do feel t.iat there is less contact
between the faculty and u n d e r g r a d uates in informal puisuit of knowledge and wisdom. 1 am talking
about the idea of faculty and student ., meeting togi ' h e r socially or
the facility letting their hair

As the student body should know
by now. a sport new to S t a t e College commonly called TRACK has

a strong demand for more track
enthusiasts, and any S t a t e u n d e r g r a d u a t e s t u d e n t interested in securing a spot on the State team has

if interested in field events, or to

T h e first official practice is scheduled for Monday afternoon, both for
track and field, since the jumping

add to the interest for track, intermural type events will be run for
