Col lege Reduces I
Traditions, Frosh Weekend Gym Program
Stimulate Cabinet Discussion For Freshmen
T r a d i t i o n s and Rivalry were t h e
topics discussed a t the meeting of
t h e C a b i n e t with t h e A d m i n i s t r a tion last Monday. Connie Olivo grave
h e r report o n the present plans for
next year's Freshman Weekend,
which promises to be a very effective program. B o t h men and women
will be on Campus, and all 650 frosh
will be there. I t is hoped t h a t t h e
frosh will get t h e feeling of t h e
m a n y traditions while t h e weekend
How Rivalry c a n keep the ball
rolling is still the unanswered question. First of all, w h a t are t r a d i tions? Is rivalry p a r t of traditions
or is it something completely different? C a n the new Rivalry plan r e organize a n d interest the freshmen?
Don McClain as Minister of T r a d itions will now have to draw up a
list of traditions as they now exist
a t S t a t e . It was suggested t h a t some
new traditions could be started to
give new life to our traditions. But,
there m u s t be m a n y old traditions
lying a r o u n d t h a t we don't know
about or trouble ourselves to learn.
T h e r e are m a n y subtle traditions,
such as the proper way to address
professors. All of these points led
the C a b i n e t to t h e conclusion t h a t
it m u s t learn these things a n d pass
t h e m on to t h e upperclassmen before it c a n expert the freshmen to
pick t h e m up.
Socializing At S t a t e
T h e P r o g r a m of Rivalry brought
up m a n y questions. How many
d a n : e s should be held during Rivalry? Is d a n c i n g such a good instrum e n t for meeting people and d e veloping class spirit? I t still m u s t
be decided when the Beanie Ball
will be held.
And Rivalry Again . . .
Is t h e K a n g a r o o Court a good
idea? C a n such a creation, even in
a n informal setting, keep the fresh-
m e n support, or should it j u s t be
a n all out three-week c a m p a i g n by
t h e Sophomores? Of course, this is
t h e essential element in a n y Rivalry
program . . .
t h e upperclassmen
m u s t support this p r o g r a m a n d keep
a positive a t t i t u d e , a n d keep t h e
l r e s h m e n jumping, o r t h e whole
t h i n g will fail as i t did this year.
After all, it's only t h r e e weeks long.
T h a t should be long e n o u g h to m e e t
the frosh without developing a Rivalry of bitterness r a t h e r t h a n one
of friendliness.

Ten Year Interim
This year through the efforts of Athletic Director
Merlin Hathaway, tennis has returned to this campus after
a ten year lapse. The last season that State competed in
intercollegiate tennis was in 1948. The reason for this
lapse is not completely known; however,
the lack of facilities seems to be the main
reason. The opening of the new courts on
Washington Avenue has certainly influenced the decision to revive the sport. With
enough student interest and a couple of
winning season State could become a power
in tennis circles. This year's team looks
like it might be able to pave the way to a winning streak
for this college. Other Ped teams in basketball, wrestling
and baseball are always up among the leaders and tennis
is to be no exception. The members of the team are working hard and would sincerely appreciate all the help they
can get from the student body. The best way anyone could
help would be to attend their meets and give them your
support and show that you really want tennis on this
campus. The squad has plenty of potential and some of
the players have already proved their ability in other
tournaments around the state and in the service.

It was Connie Schmidt, whose

Moving-up Day is still a n u n s e t tied issue. I t opened a g a i n a t last

Higher Budgets
Budgets are now ready to be
presented to t h e S e n a t e . As proposed, n e x t year's budget will be
$39,481, compared to last year's
$35,000. I t is interesting to n o t e
t h a t with the additional g r a n t s
from surplus, last year's total costs
were around $38,000. Noteable increases were allotted to Music
Council Guest Artists, $1500; S t a t e
College News, $400;
$1100. T h e Senate will probably
come down quite a bit, as t h e controversy over the c a m p grows.

T h e same question—Do we need
a college c a m p ? Should we hold
off on appropriations for a while?
Should we tiy to sell? T h e longr a n g e plans not yet p u t into motion
were cited. DeNike, Yager and Cass
were very sure it can be built up
and interest the students, but they
were aware of t h e distance factor.
Yager felt there too m u c h of a
negative attitude toward the camp.
No one realizes t h e potentialities,
nor will they enjoy this realization
because it is too far in the future.
If we don't keep going we'll lose
w h a t tax we've already paid.
T h e r e was still a question as to
whether or not there wasn't a better use for the money. Therefore,
t h e budget is being held and a large
meeting will be called n e x t Friday
to deal with the problem. Myskania,
t h e Cabinet, t h e Presidents of t h e
