Despite the auteur ' ' c r i t i c s " d e t e r m i n e d efforts to rationalize them

The CIRTNECOGE
by Elizabeth Stroud
Is this year so much more difficult than years past?
For some reason, people seem to be "underthe weathe r " more than usual. Beneath the meaningless response
of "I'm fine," you can't help noticing a pretty widespread lack of being fine.
Maybe it's just getting toward the end of the semester, but I doubt it; this discouragement has been present
for some time. People who are normally happy are
walking around brooding; bright students are discussing
the possibility of leaving school.
State has always been filled with academic pressures
if not equal to those of other schools, then frequently
greater. This year, it's really outdoing itself. If this
is a conscious effort, a planned movement in "cracking
down," then perhaps there's an explanation — some
logical excuse. If this isn't the case, then there's cause
for real worry.
I'm not talking about any lack of "rah-rah-State-is
great" enthusiasm, and I hope no one has misunderstood me. There is, however, a depressive apathy
which can be remedied only by individual re-evaluation and effort.
Maybe I'm making a big thing out of nothing — I wish
I could believe that. In any event, there's not much
one person can do to combat the loss of spirit and
drive that is hobbling such a surprising number of
students. Perhaps with vacation approaching, some
time can finally be allotted to serious thought about
this problem. I sincerely hope that, instead of increasing participation in what could become a deadly
downward spiral of morale, a rational, more optimistic attitude and answer can be found. The potential
for a reversal in the present state of things exists.
Let's stop this insidious leak before it gets way out of
hand,

The Bottle of San Pietro, a documentary edited by H u s t o n from
World War II combat footage, is
considered one of the most effective
a n t i - w a r films yet made.
The Asphalt Jungle (1950) is a n other m y s t e r y film, this time of the
" p e r f e c t c r i m e " school. Huston's
adaptation of The Red Badge of
Coorage is his fourth line film,
also made in 1950.
LJut the one unquestionable c l a s s i c
of Huston's (or anyone's) c a r e e r ,
is T h e Treasure of Sierra Madre,
which be filmed in Mexico, with
his lather, Walter Huston, Humphrey
Bogart, and Tim Holt. A power fill
study of human greed, it is m o r e
effective than von S t r o h e i m ' s and
destined to become a s much of u
classic.
Ever since Red Badge Huston has
been in what, simplified, could be
called a decline. While none of h i s
recent p i c t u r e s have been completely w o r t h l e s s , none has been entirely
successful e i t h e r .
At t i m e s the m a t e r i a l proves too

Does anyone know exactly what it m e a n s ? The
Administration has set up an insanely intricate network of c o m m i t t e e s

have been outstanding.
This remains
true despite the belief that a politician
must look like "Bucky the Beaver" to
win votes.
Nancy Baumann, the current Student
Association Vice President, refuses (so
far) to run. She is clearly the obvious
choice for nomination. Her qualifications
cannot be denied, despite h e r slight tendencies toward autocracy.
Ed Wolner, the current chairman of
the Constitutions Committee, is one of
the most oustanding intellects in student
government. His independence and ability
for clear thought a r e extensive enough to
make up for any lackof technical knowledge
o r partisan toughness.
The second most obvious possibility is
similarly well-qualified-Arthur Johnston.
His knowledge of governmentaloperations
and procedures is clearly the best of the
c u r r e n t m e m b e r s of student government.
His intention has been adamantly negative.
He remains a capable candidate despite a
reputation for filibustering.
There are four other senators who, while
interested in Student Government and while
generally able, have evidenced no interest
in the job. They a r e Senators Delio, Stenard, Genero, and Hamilton.

As editor of Primer, I feel that
I work in a friendly a t m o s p h e r e .
Primer's budget was i n c r e a s e d over
the 19G3 budget, and plans have been
made for an i n c r e a s e in the number
of copies to he published.
Various m e m b e r s of the faculty
have given needed advice and a s s i s t a n c e . The l i t e r a r y staff of the
m a g a z i n e is booth cooperative and
capable. Yet ttie 19G4 Primer may
not reach even the lowest of e x pectations.
One of h e r most notable a c h i e v e m e n t s at State was the founding of
the D r a m a t i c and A r t s Council which
aroused I n t e r e s t by bringing to the
school such leading d r a m a t i s t s as
the Abbey P l a y e r s of I r e l a n d .
A natural outbreak of h e r e n thusiasm was the T h e a t r e A r t s A s sociation
which was formed by
graduate students who did not wish
to s e e tier work d i s a p p e a r after h e r
r e t i r e m e n t . The TAA c o n s i s t s of
people living in the a r e a and m e e t s
every two weeks on c a m p u s .
The s m a l l yearly m e m b e r s h i p fee
is c r e a t i n g a fund which will be used
to h i r e outstanding p r o f e s s o r s of
s p e e d ) and d r a m a from leading univ e r s i t i e s to an Agnes E. F u t t e r e r
c h a i r . Over half of the $10,000 goal
for 19C5 has l>een collected. P a r t
of the fund has come from c l a s s
donations.
Recited P l a y s
Her first recording was made
after her r e t i r e m e n t from active
teaching. She had been making a p p e a r a n c e s at s c h o o l s and clubs
throughout the E a s t e r n s e a b o a r d ,
giving renditions of 28 p o e m s and
plays, reciting complete one-act
plays by heart.
All 100 copies of her first a t tempt, s c e n e s from Pygmalion, were
quickly sold. Her latest r e c o r d i n g s
a r e poetry r e a d i n g s which i l l u s t r a t e
the form of poetry and the sweep of
v e r s e from S h a k e s p e a r e to Ogden
Nash.
The r e c o r d s , which came out in
J u n e . HJG3, have now repaid their
cost of production and have c l e a r e d
a profit of $500. Her third project
is a cutting of O s c a r Wilde's Lady
Wlndemere's Fan, her favorite play.
The record should appe&'r after
Christinas.
Four y e a r s a g o , In 1959, one of
S t a t e ' s most honored t e a c h e r s of
d r a m a t i c a r t s r e t i r e d after 42 y e a r s
of s e r v i c e . F a r from withdrawing
from the p r o f e s s i o n , she is now r e cording poetry r e a d i n g s in English
literature.
Miss Agnes E. F u t t e r e r , who Is
presently attending Dr. Knott's English c l a s s from h e r home on Willett
S t r e e t , was the founder o f t h e D r a m a
and Speech D e p a r t m e n t a s we know
it.
Having s t a r t e d c o u r s e s in play
production at a time when this
' w a s n ' t done,' she had to take upon
herself the formidable task of teaching all c l a s s e s In s p e e c h , English
d r a m a , and oral interpretation.

T o w a r d s the end of last y e a r ,
t h e r e was a great amount of talk
about the " I m p r o v e d l o o k " of the
1963 Primer. It was felt that the
future i s s u e s of the magazine should
maintain a s i m i l a r high level of
. l i t e r a r y e x p r e s s i o n and a r t i s t i c format.
This s t a t e m e n t does not mean
that future i s s u e s should be m e r e
imitations of the 1963 Primer. Each
i s s u e must have its own distinctive
flavor arid nuances.

Show Stresses Integrity of Form
fcy Nancy Anderson!
T-»1
MAY 15, 1964
The current exhibit in the Draper
Gallery will close today with a lecture by the artist. Norman Daly, a
professor of a r t at Cornell, will
speak in D349 at 1:25 p.m. His
topic, a fitting one considering his
style, will be " F o r m in Poetry."
One of Professor Daly's prime
concerns in painting is this form
of which he shall speak. His works
convey the lesson that form is inherent in the art object.
Each abutting form is carefully
considered in its relationship to
every other. Each twist of visual
direction i s deliberatly premeditated. All are united within the r e c tangle of the two-dimensional surface, the integrity of which Professor Daly i s anxious to protect.
Restrained Instrumentation
No modeling takes place within
the confines of its edges. His intent upon form i s heightened by the
very way in which this surface is
used. His paintings simulate a quietly symphonic tone poem. These exercises in restrained instrumentation accent the essentially sombre
implications of these creations.
A strong contribution to his theme
is also made by the skill with which
the artist ages his surfaces. His
veneers of pale color and thinlyapplied glazes appear to be a product of the antiquity of which he
speaks.
A third minor fascination in painting Is that of pure abstraction.
"Composition in Black withObject"
and "Tripartite Arrangement" are
'
3 Major T y p e s
the representations of this mode.
They are as thoroughly and thoughtfully plotted a s the Symbols and
carry through into non-objectivity
the skill in manipulating tone and
form. Three dimensional effects are
blatant, not suggested, e.g. " T h e
Object."
Included in the show are several
pieces of "found object" sculpture.
In them, Professor Daly strives to
imitate by use u.' the rusted object
and the familiar, foreboding shape.
The effect, however, is not frightening a s much as it is whimsical.
In summary, let us say that Professor Daly's abstract statement
represents a 20th-century piety.
His exhibit is a lesson in the universality of religious symbolism
for all time.
'Raft9 Overcomes Symbols

Moments Shine Out
If the play is less than satisfactory as a whole, there are certain
isolated moments that exercise a
strange and fascinating power. The
sudden transition from playful chattering to the elevated seriousness
of the mock-wedding on the Sixth
Day is both pathetically funny and
terribly foreboding.
Alan lying dead across the gunwales at the end of the play " a s if

visual metaphor of spiritual desolation. The world has left him to
die without understanding or even
knowing of his final gesture of Love.

The combination of unusual or
striking dramatic Images with a
somewhat less-than-coherent overall theme seems characteristic of
the Expressionist school in general.

Tryouts for acting and sign-ups for backstage and
crew work with Arena Summer Theatre will be held
from Monday to Wednesday, May 18 to May 20, in
Richardson 291 beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Arena, the University's own summer theatre, has
been in continuous operation since 1952 and has gained
the enviable reputation of being one of the quality summer theatres of the Northeast. Some of its noteworthy
productions of recent years have been "Waiting for
Godot," "Twelve Angry Men," "Emperor Jones," and
"Uncle Vanya."
Participation is open to all people residing in the
Capitol District area, including, of course, State students. Three playes will be presented on the following
dates: July 15-18, July 22-25, July 29-August 1. The
first and third plays will be directed by Dr. J. Burian
of the State University, the middle play by Mr. C. D.
Smith, III, visiting Professor from Alfred University.
Among the plays under consideration for this summer
are Shakespeare's "The Tempest," Strindberg's "Ghost
Sonata" and "Dance of Death," Pirandello's "Henry
IV," and Bettl's "The Burnt Flower Bed."
Designer and Technical Director for Arena will be
Mr. John Moore of State University. The following
students will be working as staff members this season:
Barbara Szenes '64, Pauline Araslm '64, James Lobdell '66, and Edward Duba '66. Applications are still
being accepted for a few additional staff positions.
Interested students should contact Dr. Burian in H279
or Mr. Moore in R287.

State got its two runs in the eighth.
Pep Pizzillo opened with a walk.
Mike Putney was safe on an error

The Peds committed ten e r r o r s

and three most improved player awards last night at
the Awards Banquet. How do you like them apples! The
sports editor is a little biased because he is a member
of that class, but that is something to be proud of.
With all this returning talent, the coaches must feel
like a bunch of kids before Christmas. Things are
looking up for State's athletic endeavors and we are
not going to put the hex on things by predicting great
seasons.
We would like to make a few awards of our own
as the season comes to an end. These are awards that
we feel deserve recognition although they are not formal presentations.
The Participation Award — Paul Harney
The Humility Award — Tom Robinson
. Team Clown Award — Bob Hart and Marty Eppner
Hard Luck Award — Ray Weeks
World's Worst Predictor — Who else.
There is not enough space to mention all the men
that just missed awards. We hope that they will be in
the winner's circle next year. Last, the Most Outstanding Athlete at State must go to Tom Robinson for his
sensational running performances.
ALBANY 3, N E W YORK
In the fifth, RPI socked State's
starting pitcher Don McGurrin for
two singles and a triple. These hits
sandwiched between a pass ball and
an e r r o r accounted for three runs
for the Engineers.
Slociim, Enser 8-1
The varsity tennis team boasting
an eight and one record takes on
the New Haven squad tomorrow. It
is the first time that an Albany
tennis team has faced the men from
Connecticut.
Tom Slocum and Bill Enser hold
the best records on the team with
8-1 slates. Slocum and Enser play
in the second and sixth spots on the
team. Coach Hathaway feels that
these men have made a big difference this season.
John Barthelmes, the team's number one man, has compiled a 6-3
record. Although John is disappointed with his play this year he
has won when the team needed it.
Keith Costello has matched Bart's
6-3 record in the fifth spot.
Ed Wolner and John Sturtevant
own 5-4 records so far this season.
Sturtevant, the number three man
has not been able to get started
and is behind his last year's performance.

As we stand here today we are surrounded by beauty.
Not only are the days magnificent with their warmth —
with the beauty of the trees and grass and sky — with
even the glistening of yesterday's rain making the
colors stand out and giving new life to all that has
been asleep during the cold months.
But more important, there is a specialness here for
we are surrounded by beautiful people, and beautiful
thoughts fill the air and make it fragrant.-But what
is it that makes the beauty, this human beauty?
What is this ivy that we plant? What are these robes?
What are these hands-these eyes—these minds? These
hands, these eyes — these minds are wh^t is beautiful
— these things are special.
In our small world here set off by ivy, this realization of our speechlessness is often lost — but in the
world outside — the world into which these black robes
will transport us, the specialness becomes poignant and there will be set aside.
Now we are young; our dreams are so new; our hands
are so strong; our eyes are bright; our minds are alive
and free; our hearts are filled with a new understanding.
These things mark us and set us aside. For in this
total, ivy-free world each of us who wears a robe
stands beside 15,000 people who have no robe.Indeed
each of us who wears a robe stands beside 9,000 people
who cannot read.
This robe means that we have accepted a challenge—
a challenge to be free - free not merely within the
framework of a democratic society, but free to ask so
that we may understand, free to know why beauty exists - so that we, too, may add to the beauty; free to
love so many things; free to know - to seek - to find;
free then to be more kind, gentle, understanding, selfless; free to give.
But in this robe, too, have we been given to know the
ecstacy and the agony of life. We have felt the pain which
comes with happiness - the fear in knowing that it will
soon pass away.
And we have felt the agony and despair that comes
