Student Senate Hearing Packs In Crowd; Collegians Discuss Question
Close Vote Determines Fate Of "Primer" o n c e r n i B R o Jf K o p P K U g e
On Wednesday eve, a local p h e n o m e n a occurred when Senate performed before a packed house!
T h e r e was standing room only as
the audience anticipated the night's
drama, "The Primness of
t h e Primer.
T h e r e was a slight
among the crowd with the late
e n t r a n c e of Art Plotnik, editor-inchief of t h e Primer. Plotnik s u b mitted a letter to the Senate which
explained his best intentions in

c" copies for himself.
T h e question before t h e S e n a t e
was w h a t to do with the copies of
Primer not yet distributed. J i m
Dougherty's solution to t h e problem
was to withhold these copies from
circulation. T h i s motion was d e feated 13-12 with 3 abstentions. Discussion was long with m u c h a u d i ence participation. W h e n it a p -
Latest Statistics Show State
College Fashion Preferences
W h a t is Joe College of Albany
S t a t e wearing this spring? According to a survey tabulated by Donald Mayer and R. J. Banfield,
Seniors, Joe and his female c o u n t e r p a r t have shown a preference for
"s.mple, practical clothes" and a
"neat and conservative appearance."
W h a t the Men Wear
Statistics show t h a t ninety per
c n t of the men at S t a t e wear white
shirts for dress. Fifty-five per cent
wear no tie. Only thirty-five percent of those observed were button
t o w n collars.
T h e Sport Coat
One hundred sixty out of two
hundred men were without spurts
coals, while eight percent wore suits.
Eighty-one percent of our boys
prefer to go without sweaters, while
the rest wear crew necks, v-necks
a n d cardigans.
Khakis captured the attention of
t h e observers; they have a sixtyseven percent majority over black,
brown and check slacks.
T h e Distaff Side
On the better-looking side of
the campus, we find dresses and
skirts and blouses in competition.
Full-skirted dresses lead the race
comprising fifty percent of the
taste of State's girls. T h e modren
chemise had only a t t r a c t e d three
out of one h u n d r e d seventy-one
t.ii\s on the clay t h e survey was
Point of interest: almost eighty
percent preferred high necklines,
favored solid colors, and
ninety percent wore cotton dresses.
Pleated, gathered and
skirts are more popular on c a m pus t h a n s t r a i g h t or wrap arounds.
425 to 171 skirts are preferred
over dresses. O n e last note 125 out
if 175 girls wear bangs!
peared t h a t many observers were
only at S e n a t e for a show and
possibly a farce, Yager quite forcibly put discussion back in place. A
show of n o n - s e n a t o r s showed t h a t
at least 95'" of those present wanted
P r i m e r to be distributed.
T h e second scene opened with a
motion by Don Donato to distribute
copies of the literary magazine to
S. A. members only, and t h a t this
distribution should not be interpreted as either S e n a t e approval or
this edition of
Interestingly enough, when the
c u r t a i n fell on a r a t h e r mild performance,
bother to see the next bill of fare.
As Yager announced discussion of
a possible constitution change, t h e
mass exodus to t h e snack bar
drowned out his speech.
It seems t h a t this flash audience
valued a play of personalities more
t h a n discussion of our constitution
—good taste?
T h e present

president may not be on academic
probation a t the time of his election. This a t t e m p t to c h a n g e the
constitution was quite vehemently
discussed with the same worn arguments. Ex-Myskie member Bob Kopecek, did point out t h a t the S e n a tors were considering this motion
with themselves in mind, but t h a t
the majority of voters would look a t
the qualifications of a candidate,
not "who" he is. When t h e merrygo-round of a r g u m e n t stopped, t h e
constitution emerged victorious, and
the motion was defeated.

Senators, C a m p Board members,
the College administration, and a
vary few interested s t u d e n t s g a t h ered in Page Hall last Friday to
discuss t h e budget of C a m p Dippikill. T h e alleged purpose of this
meeting was to have c a m p board
explain to S t u d e n t Association their
proposed budget of eight thousand
do.lars, however the major p a r t of
the meeting was devoted to a
l a t h e r undirected discussion of the
purposes and uses of the proposed
T h e a n t i - c a m p bloc asked m a n y
questions which can be synthesized
into one premise—why have a college camp? To answer this question
the p r o - c a m p contingent tried to
impress upon the meeting t h a t a
major.ty of students get very little
out of t h e present S. A. budget ar.d
t h a t if t h e C a m p could be developed it is believed t h a t a great segm e n t of these students could find
uses for it. T h e a n t i - c a m p bloc
asked a n o t h e r question—why have
t h e college camp? Because in its
present undeveloped s t a t e about
a h u n d r e d different students used
a n d enjoyed t h e c a m p this year,
was t h e answer. The cons next asked
President Collins if the S t u d e n t Association could sell t h e c a m p site,
and the President answered t h a t it
was t h e s t u d e n t s ' c a m p !
Finally, t h e anti-group proposed
t h a t it might be a wise course not to
a p p r o p r i a t e any money to the c a m p
for one year and let the c a m p use
this period to gether interest. One
of t h e senators adequately stated
t h e folly of this proposal—the question of t h e camp must be met.

Last Farewell
After recovering from an exam
induced h a t e period, we can, if
given to such things, indulge our
period dedicated to the s o o n - t o g r a u u a t e " G r a n d Old Seniors."
I h e hallowed halls of ivy take on
a warmer g.ow a t g r a d u a t i o n time,
and 1 suppose a few tears will help
diffuse t h a t glow, help soften the
ivyless bricks, and dull t h e sheen

shows. Its very proper to be wistful and a little sad at g r a d u a t i o n
time, but a great deal of s a d n e s s '
moisture comes from s t r a i n e d eyes.
Underclassmen are stronger t h o u g h ;
its not they who have to go, there's
still pleasant time left for t h e m ,
and fewer upperclass examples n e x t
year to set t h e m examples.
Seniors have to say goodby too.

I turn fur unasked advice, wasteful
shortcuts, and profitless mistakes?
I shall have to turn to myself, and
in my tui'ii do these things for any
underclassmen who m i g h t ask of
me the questions I did of Seniors.
Actually, Seniors a r e not t h e

about their being Seniors. Somebody
has to do it, lor few, if any, colleges
come with only three classes. T i e '

perfectly acceptable here as well, 1

might act slightly superior and
somewhat cynical, 'due, doubtlessly,
to their advanced experiencet they
appear as normal as you or I.
Seniors are dependable, too. They
can be trusted to break t h r o u g h

broken rules, traditions, and a few
records for four long years? in t h e
end, Seniors will out; they're almost out now, tethered here only by
