Olympic Funds
Today's Siena baseball game has
boen designated as a fund raising
exlbition game. The collection will
be taken from the fans present to
raise money to send a team to Tokyo
this fall..
This team will be made up of
college athletes and their purpose
will be to play exibition games
in Tokyo in the hope that it will
stimulate enough interest to have
baseball as an Olympic sport. To
date the team sport of baseball is
not part of Olympic competition.

Representatives of three
major religious groups in
the capital district have
met to discuss the possibility of constructing an
Inter-faith Center for the
new campus.
Since the University has established a policy prohibiting the use
of campus facilities for religious
worship services, the Albany Jewish Community, Council, the Capitol
Area Council of Churches, and the
Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany
have decided that such a matter is
of urgent significance.

Whenever an individual or organization
wishes to publicize any event, approval
must be sought from Campus Commission. Upon the granting of this approval,
a poster may then be hung on some wall
of either the main buildings or annexes.
Our University is constantly expanding. It has neared the point now that
communication by poster is inadequate.
Many students spend the greater part
of their college career in the annexes,
for example, and one or two postered
displayed in the main college buildings
do very little good in bringing events
to their attention.
The new campus points out the need
for more efficient and expansive publicity. It is clear that the poster system
in a large university does not fulfill
the communications needs of the various
active organizations.
Campus Commission is in need of a
revamping on this and other scores.

Led by the classy pitching of John Botticelli, the Siena Indians topped the varsity baseball team 7-4 in a home game last Friday. State's starting pitcher Ray
Weeks was plagued by a porous defense that allowed six unearned runs to be
scored. In the season's opener Weeks had dropped an eleven inning 4-3 decision
to Siena at LoudonvHle. As is always the case when these two arch-rivals compete,
the stands were filled with avid rooters from both schools.
Siena drew first blood in their

singled and scored on a long double.
The run was to be Siena's only
earned score of the day. The Indians threatened in both the second
and third innings, but clutch pitching

in both frames.
Meanwhile, Botticelli set down the
Peds in order in the first two innings. Dick Kimball cracked State's
first hit in the third. However, he
was stranded on third as Botticelli

and long-hitting Fred Maurer at

the first three points of the match.
Bayus and Maurer defeated Hamilton's two top golfers, Leon Kantor
and Bill Tracy, by large margins.
The tide then seemed to be turning against the Peds as Doug Morgan and John Vrtiak both lost close
With the match deadlocked at 3-3, the contest was to
be decided in the last foursome

needed two out of three points for

Rosen won his match to gain one
point. Bachorz was one stroke down
going to the eighteenth hole. He
won the eighteenth with a five foot

With that putt Bachorz notched a

Racqueteers Extend Win Streak

of New Jersey 5-1 last Friday, the
varsity tennis team extended their
undefeated record to G-0. Since
