STATE C O L L E G E N E W S , FRIDAY, F E B R U A R Y 15, 1 9 3 7
Gattaon Caption Ganteit
Know Thyself...
This has been a busy week for the few
active people in this school. All week,
Greeks have been meeting in their secret
hideaways cutting lists. In another hideaway, known to the chosen few as Page
Prison, the captives were plotting a means
of escape.
All of these captives had been sent up for
an eight-week stretch. Because they were
born unlucky, some have been re-sentenced.
Others, the incorrigible souls, faced capital
punishment—the loss of the Pedagogue or
a one dollar fine. They thought they had
committed the perfect crime, but each of
them found a mimeographed summons in
Student Mail. After every offense, they reported to the parole officers in the corner of
the spankingly-clean Commons. Some of
their alibis worked, and these fortunates
joined their comrades in the outside world
of the cafeteria. Those who weren't clever
enough were shipped back to Page for the
Friday morning Vocational Class in student government.
The prisoners, completely snowed by the
dull dissertations, slouched in their seats
and read the Prison Weekly. As they restlessly stretched their weary arms, the
"thirteen" jumped up and recorded the
stretch as a vote.
This past Tuesday, a handful of the captives met and discussed their plight. Discussion was lively and interesting. Unfortunately, time ran out. Plans were made
for another non-compulsory meeting.
These progressive prisoners must remember one thing. They, themselves, must initiate the plan of escape, as their captors
refuse to take any action. They must organize and prepare a suitable alternative to
replace the ineffective "Friday at 10" classes
before they can be free.
Next week, sororities and fraternities end
their yearly quest for new members. Rushing has been kept clean. In fact, the term
"dirty rushing" has been dying a slow death
at State for some time. For this we must
congratulate both the Greeks and the
rushees for keeping the battle for bids on
a mature level.
To the freshman who must decide very
soon whether or not to pledge a Greek society, we can only reiterate what past editors of this paper have said—be sure. Since
November you have been exposed to sorority and fraternity life on this campus.
Weigh the pros and cons carefully before
you sign on the dotted line. Be sure the
group wants you, and of more importance,
be sure you want the group. A member of a
sorority or fraternity only enjoys membership and gains satisfaction when he or she
takes an active interest in the group. So,
don't be persuaded by glittering rush party
decorations, and collegiate-looking jackets.
Rather, look at the people who made the
decorations, and who are wearing the jackets—then decide.
Remember also, t h a t to assume the role
of an independent is no crime. But, to join
a Greek organization because your roommate is joining would be both an injustice
to yourself and to that society. If you are
unable to make a clear cut decision, then
remain independent. On our campus the
independent is not lost in the whirl of sorority and fraternity social life since the
greater part of student social life revolves
around all-college activities, which forget
completely the affiliations of the participants.
This weekend, give serious thought to
pledging. Talk it over with your classmates
if you must, but let the final decision be

One Man'i Opinion - - In this article I will try to express
my feelings as to what is wrong
with our student, government. In
expressing these problems I feel it
right t h a t I should express some
m e a n s of correcting these wrongs as
I see them. Much of this is familiar
to many of you, and may not seem
to be very new or original. However, it is those who do not know
some of these problems that I hope
to reach.
As I have said, I feel t h a t t h e r e
are many problems with our stud e n t government, and in my three
years of student government work,
there have been c h a n g e s proposed
to alleviate and correct these problems. Some of t h e proposed changes
have been accepted, m a n y have just
been cast aside.
T h e first and perhaps the greatest problem is to find some type of
government to replace the weekly
convocations tor as some prefer to
call them, "the Friday morning
reading n o u n . I t is ridiculous to
compel people to go to legislative
convocations when there i.s little
there to appeal to them. Many have
little interest in the affairs of stud e n t government, and the fact t h a t
we compel these students to go to
t h e convocations will not increase
their Interest In our system. I am
not saying t h a t all s t u d e n t s tlo not
( a r e about s t u d e n t government, but
to a great extent many have less
time and interest for student gove r n m e n t t h a n those who are active
in it.
In order to make our student,
g o v e r n m e n t function properly. 1
think t h a t a representative type ol
government should be set up in
place of the present system. In this
way, a m u c h smaller group of interested students could handle the
details of government work.
T h e body could consist of from
thirty to forty members. There are
m a n y ways of setting up this bod.\
as to where the members would
come from 'class and SA at large,
for example). This group would take
over the fund ions of the convocations as they now exisl. It would
also assume some ol the work of
Council. Council
continue to operate in this set-up.
I would like to go into the problems which I feel have bogged down
the effectiveness of Student Council. My first suggestion is to eliminate the SA at large members,
mainly for the purpose ol decreasing Council's size. What is probably the group's biggest problem is
the fact thai, there are Just too
many committees out of Council.
T h e reports are too long, and when
completed leave little time for disussion. Such a body as ours, that
has committee reports for about an
hour and a hall, cannot expect to
properly. For the past
three y e a r s the discussions in Council have been going down hill. This
is not because of poorer m e m b e r ship, but because of t h e overwhelming number of hours a Council
meeting lasts. Council could give
up some of these duties to t h e representative government to somewhat
equalize the powers and duties of
the two groups.
Because of the poor electioneering
around the campus a t election time
m a n y eaoable candidates do not
have a fair chance to show their
fellow classmates just what they
can do. Because of this I feel that,
m order to get better officers in
the future, there must be a vast
change in our election procedures,
Ai the present
Commission has too many restrictions against campaigning'. More
rallies are needed: more publicity
could be an aid m increasing the
proficiency of electioneering. Some
people fee) that political parties
would be an aid and some say that
they would not work. Personally, I
think t h a t they can work al Stale

Frosh, t h a t fatal day has come,
When, to your mailbox, you'll run
To get the all important news
And see if you will have to choose.
We'd like to lend to you our voice
Before you make the i m p o r t a n t choice.
A fancy party may be a sensation
But always get a free home demonstration.
When you discover you're not along for the ride,
A friendly conversation may help you decide.
For those of you who may not get hooked
Remember, the best are often overlooked.
And when, on the dotted line, you've signed
Don't let anyone change your mind.
Fur a friend who gives you the overhaul
Was never even a friend at all.
When you know you've found some people sincere
Then you can say. "I b< long h e r e ! "

everything, including their own chances of making the
game a close contest.
The New Paltz freeze reminded this writer of the time
a West coast team froze the ball for fifteen minutes. Their
opponents, taking advantage of the cold breeze, began to
read newspapers and magazines while the howls from the
stands mounted to a high pelican pitch. New Paltz came
close to causing the same type caliber of casualness. They
frosted the ball for thirteen and a half approximate minutes, while John Rookwood came over to the bench to talk
to Coach, Jack Minon struck up a conversation with one of
the New Paltz players who was sitting out the freeze, and
the rest of the Albany squad put their hands at their sides
and calmly awaited the finale of the chest passing drill
being given by Murphy and teammate.
When the New Paltz talented tossing twins decided
that things had congealed enough and Albany couldn't
possibly score over a hundred points, they put the ball back
into play and managed to score fifteen points, along with
their teammates, for the remainder of the half. It all goes
to prove that if you can't open the windows, the next best
way to cool things off is to have two players strike up some
cross ventilation by the chest passing method.
Advance Tickets for the Siena Game
In an attempt to satisfy as many as possible, the Varsity Club will have a desk set up in lower Draper beginningMonday afternoon for the purpose of selling advance tickets for the Siena game to be played at the Washington
Avenue Armory a week from tomorrow. Tickets will sell
for the regular Armory prices: general admission, one
dollar; reserved section, $1.50. The Armory will seat at
least 3 500, but with our current decisive win over Hartwick and Siena's pair of defeats at the hands of the same
school, and the fact that scores are interested in this game,
we believe your best bet would be to visit the Varsity Club
advance ticket sale desk as soon as possible.

Far East Condemns Israel; QoundWaHtiHti"
Proposes Sanction Action
Israel Struggles For Life!
D u r i n g t h e p a s t week, t h e Middle
E a s t crisis took t h e spotlight in t h e
news. I n t h e United Nations, t h e
Afro-Asian bloc decided t o p r e s e n t
a resolution condemning Israel and
calling for t h e withholding of economic a n d financial aid.
T h e United Nations h a d previously asked Israel to withdraw from
t h e G a z a S t r i p and the Gulf of
Aqaba. Israel refused to withdraw
unless t h e UN gave her a g u a r a n t e e
t h a t Egypt would not regain control
of this vital area. W h e n Egypt had
b a n n e d Israel from using t h e Suez
C a n a l in 1949, t h e Israelis opened
a new t r a d e route through the Gull
of Aqaba. Egypt then seized t h e
strategic islands a t t h e m o u t h of
t h e Aqaba and c u t off Israel's only
a l t e r n a t e trade route. Israel is now
afraid t h a t Egypt will do t h e same
t h i n g a g a i n which is why she is
asking for a g u a r a n t e e before she
removes her troops.
Since Israel has refused to comply with the UN request, several n a tions h a v e urged to sanction Israel.
If this decree were carried out, Israel would become isolated.
Dag Hammarslcjold h a s urged the
G e n e r a l Assembly not to sanction
Israel. S e n a t o r s Bridges, S p a r k m a n ,
Kuchel, Knowland a n d Douglas
have all spoken out against the
sanction movement. However, t h e
Afro-Asian bloc is insistent. T h e
sanction resolution will not come
before t h e Security Council because
F r a n c e will veto the measure. If
t h e resolution is to be passed, it
will h a v e to be done in t h e G e n e r a l
Looking back over the actions
t a k e n by the United Nations in the
past, we wonder why Israel was
picked out as " t h e nation to s a n c tion," when t h e United Nations h a d
ample justification for sanctioning
o t h e r nations earlier a n d did not.
We wonder why t h e UN didn't
sanction Egypt when she disobeyed
a UN resolution calling u p o n h e r to
through t h e Suez Canal. We wonder
why the UN didn't sanction Soviet
Russia for its action in H u n g a r y .
Should t h e slaughter of men, women, and children be t a k e n lightly?
T h e UN took the time to approve
over ten resolutions on t h r H u n garian situation, yet Russia r'isregarded everyone of them. We wonder why the UN didn't sanction I n dia after she grabbed K a s h m i r .
Nehru speaks of peace. It is too
bad t h a t he doesn't practice w h a t
he preaches. India wouldn't even
allow a plebiscite. We wonder why!
Above all, we wonder why t h e UN
didn't sanction Red China who is
not even a member of the UN. Red
China's action in Korea, Burma,
Tibet, and Nepal left t h e door wide
open for a sanction movement. Yet
the UN sat idly by and instead of
hearing a sanction resolution against
Red China to the UN, we h e a r d a
resolution t h a t would have admitted
Red China to the UN if it had been
approved. It is interesting to note
I h a t the Afro-Asian bloc gave some
support to this resolution. T h e same
Afro-Asian bloc who w a n t s to s a n c tion Israel today!
Israel is lighting for her life. If
all economic and financial aid is
withheld, Israel will become a nation of t h e past. If t h r o u g h t h e
United Nations, one tiny nation,
like Israel, can be strangled into
oblivion, why can't it h a p p e n to
others? The" United S t a t e s shou'.d
take t h e lead to see to it t h a t t h e
nations of t h e free world remain
free. We should try to remember
t h a t we too were a small nation,
but we were given a c h a n c e to live.
Let's give Israel the same chance!
