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.

The Big Sleep, from a Raymond Chandler novel, is the same type of tough, p r i v a t e - e y e film, with many of the s a m e p l a y e r s . Its main distinction i s a script that gets the viewer completely confused, and never r e s o l v e s the plot. The audience i s no closer to a solution at the end than at any point during the picture. It i s , however, directed by an a u t e u r , Howard Hawks, and s o is naturally a better film than that of Huston. The rationalization: its inconclusiveness makes it m o r e true to life. Taking the two films alone, to stand or fall on their own individual m e r i t s , without regard for the r e s t of the d i r e c t o r ' s c a r e e r , it is o b vious that Falcon is by far a better film.

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.

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 by Bruce D a n i e l s Last Friday night's highly imaginative and polished performance kept George Kaiser's "Raft of the Medusa" from sinking under the weight of its own grandiose " s y m bolism." An inveterate, prolific writer of "denkspielen" (or "thought-plays") Kaiser attempted no less than a re-enactment of the Christian drama and an examination of the sources of Evil. To do so, the author relied heavily on traditional Christian and Two small, faded, wooden ''San- psychoanalytic symbols.

The essentially pagan character of this motion is captured in "Ancient Symbol # 6 . " In these works, the use of the surface is arrived at through planning in process. A second type is primarily concerned with the development of a pre-planned form - a simplification of the human figure in ancient dress. Professor Daly searches for a symbol equally applicable to all religious concepts, those of the prophet, the priest and the oracle. It can be viewed a s an Eastern prophet or as the Holy Trinity (as in "Early Christian Symbols #3). fear of the number 13, Alan symbolically "crucifies" himself — presumably taking the sins of his weaker brethren on himself. The bother with this is that a s soon as Little Fox i s thrown overboard, a rescue plane arrives and the children a r e saved. It looks as if Ann had really been right in insisting that all their trouble was a matter of numbers. 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 crucified" Is a brief and chilling visual metaphor of spiritual desolation. The world has left him to die without understanding or even knowing of his final gesture of Love. Expressionist The combination of unusual or striking dramatic Images with a somewhat less-than-coherent overall theme seems characteristic of the Expressionist school in general. Kaiser, the patron saint of the Expressionists, has embodied both the virtues and the vices of this interesting and influential movement.

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.

Mike Putney was safe on an error and Ken Wilkes smashed a double scoring both runners. The Peds committed ten e r r o r s in the contest which saw RPI commit five mlscues. RPI scored nine runs on twelve hits, while State could only manage two runs on eight hits. Pizzillo and Odorizzi each had two hits for the home squad. The loss left Albany with a 4-6 record.

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.

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.

A Free s 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.
