Red Sea Base
On Wednesday, reliable sources
reported that the United States
has asked Ethiopia for a military
base on the Red Sea. If the United
States obtained the use of this
base, it would have a protective covering to Egypt's southern flank.
When Emperor Haile Selassie was
asked about the possibilities of a
U.S. base in Ethiopia, he replied,
"Ethiopia desires to collaborate
with the United States but only on
an equal footing." Many approve
the request providing the United
States agrees to give Ethiopia more
economic and military aid. There
have been reports that even Russia
has gotten into the act by advising
Ethiopia that the U.S. wants the
base in order to store up atomic and
hydrogen bombs.

Class Weekend
Let's increase the scope of government. Student Council took a step in the right direction when they unofficially
decided Wednesday night to send a representative to
Harpur to consider joining a confederation of student governments of the several State University colleges. This
makes us particularly happy, since this group plans to
take steps to insure the passage of the multi-million dollar State University Bond issue which affects us so greatly.
Congratulations, Government Roomers—this is what we
call increasing the scope of government!
Among the minor incidents this past week was the
release of Myskania's annual recommended and suggested
lists. These are people Myskania would like to see occupying the thirteen chairs next year. Of course, the student
body doesn't agree with the entire list. It would be a sad
state of affairs if they did. You see, back in the dark ages
of State College history, the student body didn't even get
a chance to vote for the "honorary" and "judicial" thirteen. The old Myskania simply appointed the incominggroup. A big week for politics, bigger ones to come, we hope!
"I Decline'
Just what is it with you? Are you the modest, timid
type? Are you lazy? Or could it be that calm, cool, sensible you have become overwhelmed with the fear of it
all? Tell us, non-interested one who has declined, could it
be that your superior self finds student government too
dirty for your immaculate soul to move into?
Oh yes, we forgot you are becoming a scholar for the
cause. Student government does take a portion of your
precious time, and it does take some determination, need,
and want to obtain for our college the best. And with all
the indications of this rampant "I decline" fad, we lack
the essentials of a responsible student body. It appears
a foolhardy thing to use the declination as a' weapon to
register your disapproval of the existing status of student
government. It accomplishes nothing more than to impress on most minds another cry for apathy.
If student government is in the so called dirty stage
here at State College, then it is your fault as well as ours.
If it is to become a responsible, functional body then it
is your duty to make it so by whatever means are justifiable. Whatever it is and whatever it is to become rests
with you. No one else can accept the responsibility for
student government. And yet, you continually dump and
side step the issue with puny little excuses or worse yet,
none at all. You forget your responsibilities and obligations, but demand your rights.
That isn't a pedestal that you are standing upon, but
just one big, tall disillusionment. Crawl into your little
burrow and pull your tail in behind you. Be happy, pat
yourself on the back—for you made the supreme .sacrifice.

Myskania's getting busier as the year progresses.
We're very pleased that they are, too. Yesterday, a member of Myskania directed a meeting for those interested
in revising the highly inadequate Student Association
Constitution. Monday, they meet with the Education Department to discuss the professional side of the college,
and last but not least by any means, they meet Tuesday
night at Brubacher with anyone who is interested to decide whether or not they have the right to do the things
previously mentioned! Let's have a big turn-out Tuesday
night; let's ask this Myskania what they feel future Myskanias should be!

For weeks we have read articles
on t h e need of a c h a n g e in s t u d e n t
government. We have h e a r d pros
and cons on w h a t we ought to have.
Everyone asks t h a t someone take
t h e a r g u m e n t s t h u s far offered and
.put t h e m into a practical form. So
far, t h e only constructive proposals
rendered have been questions, except
for those which are vague and a m biguous, or which have failed to
come into t h e light. Why should we
continue these tiring discussions
with n o organized, positive suggestions before us? Let's discuss something t h a t is on paper as a s t a r t .
I would like to offer a few answers
to some of these c u r r e n t problems.
I have a written Constitution which
offers one of many p a t h s to follow
in solving our present problems.
Practical Philosophy
Of course, t h e first question t h a t
would be p u t to me is, what is the
philosophy to be incorporated into
this constitution? This is a very
i m p o r t a n t consideration, not one to
be overlooked. But, this can be
formalized later. First, I would like
to show the general structure of this
proposed representative government
and t h e general problems it solves,
tor a philosophy of government can
be partly inferred from its s t r u c ture.
First it must be recognized t h a t
most s t u d e n t s do not have an overwhelming zeal to congregate with a
thousand or more fellow s t u d e n t s
i theoretically speaking i to discuss
a n d legislate on s t u d e n t problems.
They would much r a t h e r delegate
powers to a representative body. A
thousand people c a n n o t function as
a central governing body if there is
no interest.
S t u d e n t Senate
Therefore, a representative body
is needed to function as a s t u d e n t
legislature and to represent the real
interests of the s t u d e n t body. Let
us call this legislature the S t u d e n t
Senate. T h e Senators should come
from t h e four classes. Also, let us
give t h e S e n a t e all legislative powers and responsiblities. This delegation of powers eliminates the
present dilemma of three govern-
i Con I in uvd from Page i, Column 3)
under its jurisdiction. Naturally, the
d e p a r t m e n t must give preference to
those s t u d e n t s using the facilities
lor college credit. If any student
or group of s t u d e n t s wishes to r e serve a practice room, they must
do so with permission from either
Dr. Stokes or Mr. Peterson.
I feel t h a t the general tone of the
article was too caustic. T h e information contained therein was
exaggerated and, a t times, misleading. Again allow m e to apologize
for the article and olfer my personal g u a r a n t e e t h a t no other such
articles written by me shall appear.
Paul Erickson '50
m e n t a l groups sharing legislative
Executive Cabinet
We now need a n administrtive
force to execute t h e acts of t h e
Senate. Let us call this force a n
Executive Cabinet. T h i s Cabinet
would be headed by t h e four elected
officers, w h o would a p p o i n t any
additional servants as t h e need
dictates. In this way, we would
eliminate S.A. elections for such
subsidiary boards as S t u d e n t Board
of F i n a n c e .
Elect Fewer Officers
We don't need a n elected recomm e n d i n g committee. Also, more a t tention could be given by S.A. to
electing the principle officers. Fewer officers to be elected is a n a d ditional a d v a n t a g e in favor of responsible voting.
Function of Myskania
Do we throw out Myskania a n d
set up a new court system? Of
course not. We h a v e to save some
tradition, c u t at t h e same, let us
strip this group of all powers except
judicial. This judicial institution
should be a society of Seniors who
hear cases of violation against the
Constitution and laws of the S t u dent Senate, rendering decisions
and interpretations. T h e r e is no
other governmental duty Myskania
should exercise.
College Film
Group Presents
Banned Movie
I n t e r n a t i o n a l Film G r o u p will
present " T h e Young And
Damned" 7:30 p.m. T h u r s d a y in
Draper 349, according to Steve
Jacobson '59, President.
T h e Story
This Mexican film portrays a
story of juvenile delinquency a n d
the boys who r o a m t h e streets a t
night looking for outlets to practice
their violence.
Condemned by Legion
Jacobson states t h a t the film is
listed as "condemned" by t h e Legion
of Decency. T h e I n t e r n a t i o n a l Film
Group feels t h a t the film merits
viewing by students not affected by
the Legion's ruling because of the
quality of the production and the
handling of subject m a t t e r . T h e
student body may see the list of
Legion of Decency ratings along
with information and pictures of
scenes from the movie. These are
located on the bulletin board in
the Draper-Husted Peristyle.
After the showing of " T h e Young
And T h e Damned," an open discussion wil be conducted on t h e
censorship of films.
Purpose of Organization
"The purposes of the organization
a r e to deal effectively with m a t t e r s
of s t u d e n t affairs, to p e r p e t u a t e t h e
best traditions and ideals of this
College, to promote the best of good
will and understanding between the
faculty and s t u d e n t s to the end
t h a t the work of this College may
be made of lasting value to the
students, to control all m a t t e r s
which a r e delegated to the s t u d e n t
government by the administration,
to work with the a d m i n i s t r a t i o n in
all m a t t e r s affecting t h e welfare of
the student association, to enact
and enforce such laws a s a r e d e e m ed necessary for t h e promotion of
the welfare of the s t u d e n t s a n d to
control and direct s t u d e n t activities
in ordev t h a t they may be conducted
for the best interests of the S t u d e n t
Association as a whole and to t h e
credit of New York S t a t e College
for Teachers."
Here is a start. Here is something tangible to work with. It may
invite support or over-riding criticism, but a t least we are a step
closer to the vitally needed change.
Our discussion need not be purely
hypothetical in n a t u r e .

Flash! A prominent member
of News Board recently received
a letter from the State Senate
signed by R. U. Serious, Secretary of the Inferior, informing
him (hat he had been chosen
from thousands to spend a n
exciting and adventurous four
year cruise through t h e lovely
waters of the waters of t h e Suez
Canal. He was also awarded a
stay a t the scenic resort a t t h e
Israeli Strip.
It was inferred in t h e letter
d i a l because of the recipient's
typing experience, extra pin
money could be earned if so
desired. The money in turn
could be spent for extra s p a m
rations. As t h e Spam-leader of
his group it was assured t h a t a
satisfactory elevation in official
title would be awarded. Everyone would be required to call
him Spam Spade.

Anyone For
Spring Sports
Spring, and a young man's thoughts turn to thoughts
of sport. We wonder, indoor or outdoor sport? Coach
Sauers has sent his annual call out for baseball candidates but are we going to be satisfied with having but one
varsity sport on campus during the spring? No need to
worry about indoor spring sport, minds turn to that also.
AA Board has issued a letter stating that a study to
And a new spring sport to replace the short lived track
and field issue will begin soon.
Golf, Tennis, Anyone?
The outlook for arranging some other spring sport
appears to be enlightening. In the fall of last year, AMIA
held a tennis tournament which was rather successful,
though weather hampered the final rounds. Tennis being
mainly a spring and summer sport, here's a definite opportunity for a new addition. Another sport capable of
becoming varsity level is golf. On campus there are a
number of students who have a high interest in the Ben
Hogan world, so why not put it into use?
If AA Board is going to consider any sport at all, the
interest must come from the student body first. In the
past few years, it's been like bleeding a turnip to get a
sport started around the quad. If opportunity is knocking on your doorstep, get out that racket or mashie and
do something about it.
Others Have, Why Not Us?
Buffalo State, Fredonia State and who knows how
many other State Colleges have golf on a varsity level, and
there are tennis teams on the majority of other schools
in the State. Albany State should be included.

The never-say-die grapplers of Coach Joe Garcia's 7-2-1
squad of the recently completed season added a pair of
third place finishes to their laurels last weekend at the
West Point Freshman Invitational tourney at West Point.
In both cases a second or first place just eluded the grasp
of the luckless pair of Farrell and Kane as both dropped
close matches in early rounds to put them in a loser's

State College Theatre Produces "The Insect Comedy";
Dramatics & Arts Council Presents Two Performances
New Musicale
Talent Program
Players Schedule Satire
As Second Production
Barbara Hungerford '57, President of Dramatics and Art Council,
announces that the presentations of "The Insect Comedy" will be held tonight and tomorrow night in Page Hall Auditorium at 8:30 p.m.
Student Union Board in conjunction with Music Council will present
a "State College Musicale" in Brubacher Upper Lounge Sunday from
3 to 5 p.m., states Frank Favat '59,
Chairman of the event.
The entertainment will consist of
songs with lyrics written by James
Lockhart V)7 and music composed
by David Greenberg, Graduate Student. Ten State College students
will sing and dance to the nine
original numbers written especially
for Sunday's program.
The Program
Favat, lists the proceedings for
the afternoon Musicale as follows:
The program will commence with
Roger Hunt '58 singing "Blue
Reverie" and "Just A' Whistling in
the Dark." Next on the agenda will
be Frank Connizzo '60, Dolores
Shimandle, Richard Esner, and
Marian Sciortino, S o p h o m o r e s ,
dancing to "Honey Bea" and "One
Girl." After this the Co-eds will
sing "In Atlantic City" and "Honey
Bea." Joseph Ilardo '60 will continue with "Shirley" and "Sweet
Evelyn." Lockhart will then sing
"One Girl" and "Lonely Blues."
Next on hand will be Stephen
Hoover '60 performing "Ester." The
concluding number will be "On The
Road to Nowhere," sung by Barbara Hungerford '57.
The original play was written by Josef and Karel Capek in Czechoslovakia^ Jarko Burian, Assistant Professor of English at State
College, has translated the play into an English version.
The story is a fantasy about a philosophical vagrant, who falls
asleep in the forest and observes an interesting analogy between insect
life and human life. Typical human reactions are portrayed by the
butterflies, who flutter and make violent love; the beetles, who hoard
their money and live selfishly;
while the red ants murder the
crickets. Red ants and yellow ants
