The scope of this is larger than one thought, one person, great- er than one day or one year, and we dedicate this Elms to the Seventy-fifth Anniversary of the college, thus honoring those who since l87l have contributed to its growth. A few are yet alive today who remember the first Normal School established in l87l, and its first graduating class of twenty-two, in 1873. Still more are familiar with the building we recognize as Grover Cleveland High School, built in l9l3 around the site of the old structure, so that classes were able to continue while the other construction was being completed. Approximately twen- ty years later came our present buildings whose halls echo the tread of our feet daily. We are among the fortunate few-we know of the past progress, and will live to see a future of even greater advancement. Our present campus will be increased by an additional 35 acres. The new buildings proposed, as well as those approved and ready for construction as- sure us that our college will surpass itself in coming years. This Anniversary, then stands as a monument to the past and is a prediction of new achievement w. H.

State Teachers College has progressed from a Normal School to the impressive college it is today. A major part of this development is the result of the efforts of Doctor Rockwell, who has guid- ed the institution toward its present prestige. Doctor Rockwell, coming to the college in l9l8, has advanced with it and contributed high standards in education. Thus it is through the loyalty and interest of our president, that students are today able to stand before the Tower for the seventy-fifth year l3 I4 I l N MEMGRIAM ln her fourteen years here, Mrs. Summers gave much that will remain a part of our college. Mrs. Summers was born in Des Moines, Iowa. A graduate of Drake University, she received further training at the University of Chicago and Teachers College, Columbia. She taught in Des Moines for several years, spe- cializing in kindergarten work. Later, she acted as a social worker in Port- land, Maine. In 1931, Mrs. Summers came here, after having served as profes- sor of kindergarten at Drake University. At State Teachers College, she had been an Assistant Professor of Education supervising the kindergarten work of student teachers. Her elective course in Children's Literature has been pop- ular for many years. An active participant in the Association for Childhood Education, she has become nationally known in this organization. lrene Hirsch Summers' contribution to our college can be neither enumerated nor measured. Few have given so much.

Established by the Senior Class of T937, Council has evolved into a working organization, increasingly re- sponsible and definite in action. Nine- teen-hundred and eleven saw the forerunner of Council organized to enable teachers and students dis- cuss, on common ground, vital mat- ters concerning the Normal School. The l9l4 program included inter- viewing the l.R.C. about the noise of their cars, having ink in the study rooms and conducting a Better English Drive. Repre- sentative membership of today's Council includes section cap- tains, class officers, faculty representatives, and student repre- sentatives from each class and department. Council committees, as Cafeteria, Smoking Room and Clean-Up, have been set up to work on all problems, and the Suggestion Box in the Student Center is open to all who have ideas they wish Council to con- sider. Council voices student opinion, and the Suggestion Box is an important connecting link through which members discover what students wish discussed. This year a program or arbitration has been planned, aiming to foster unity and coordination of stu- dent effort. Student Court has been organized to superin- tend student discipline and pass judgment on infractions of rules. Council meetings, held on the second and fourth Fridays of the month, are open to the entire student body and faculty 38 President ...... ..,... E Isa Lohuns Vice'Presidenf .,.. ,...

Prior to the war, the tapping ceremony was conducted at the Senior Ball, but during war years it has been the custom to have a special assem- bly tori this occasion. Alpha Honor Society received its charter in i932 and in the spring ot that year the first tive members were tapped. Since that time, in the spring ot every year, trom fifteen to thirty students ot the upper two classes have been honored in the impressive tapping ceremony. Organization Day is one ot Alpha's important activities. Presented early in the tall of each year, it gives all students, p ticularly the freshmen, a broad view of the ac- tivities open to them.

Kappa Delta Pi is a national honor society in education, its members, students who have 'made the grade' in scholastic achievement and in personal qualities. First established at the.University of lllinois in l9ll, Gamma Mu chapter of Kappa Delta Pi was installed at the college in l93l. The society encourages high professional, intellectual and social standards of its members. ln addition to playing host at the Dean's Tea, members of the society were in charge of National Education Week. The yearly assembly program, presented this fall, proved to be one of the most interesting of the year-a panel discussion on Compulsory Military Training prepared by four of State's faculty members, with student participation 42 gi ,L ik P 5 1 1: YA A' t. vi 0 1... rth 0 .- 0 u.. n.

Founded in the Normal School in l923, Mu chapter followed the college to its pre- sent location. Phi U provides recognition for home economics students in their own field, and gives to eligible Home Ec'ers the oppor- tunity to become affiliated with a national honorary society. Since this organization is a home economics sorority, its work is devoted chiefly to that field, in the promotion and advancement of this science. This year the sophomore women in the Home Economics De- partment were introduced to the organization at a party which featured a circus theme. Miss Alma Roudebush, who is advisor to the chapter, and also president of the national group, spoke on the aims of the sorority, inspiring the sophomore women to greater achievement. Mu chapter contributes to the college's Laboratory of Instructional Materials where the chapter maintains an organized pamphlet file that may be used by the entire student body.

Viola Nichols During the year 1925 several State co-eds who were interested in literature and creative writing formed a society which they named Nu Lambda Sigma. The Greek letters of this honorary organization stand for Normal Literary Society. From 1925 to 1944 Nu Lamb was under the guidance of Miss Eileen Mulhol- land, former member of the English Department at the college. Dr. Margaret LeClair, who came to State in 1944, is now its sponsor. Nu Lamb has a pro- gram uniquely its own-not only are the writings of various authors discussed, but members' work is read and critized. Plans for a booklet of the members' work has been under consideration, and in the meantime, Nu Lamb members are a strong contributing force behind the Elms, Handbook, and Record 46 The International Relations Club was organ- ized in l937 under the excellent leadership of the late Lt. Richard Hughes and his wife, the former Betty Horn. During the war years, interest lagged, but this year over fifty stu- dents have signified their interest by becoming members. The expression, "Every- one is entitled to his or her opinion" is an apt one for this group, for members are encouraged in active participation and free expression of ideas. The subiect matter for each meeting is composed of problems such as "World Peace and the Atomic Bomb." Discussion of interesting topics between faculty and students are frequent, increasing the individuality of the members' points of view President .,,..... ....,..

In two years Akiba has won our respect as an important group on campus. Since it was formed for both religious and social functions of Jewish students, it is working to lay the foundations for an organization which will in future years serve as a bond among all fellow students. During its semi-monthly meetings the group held informal dis- cussions, had several guest speakers and celebrated holidays through traditional customs.

The club meets its spiritual goal through student retreats and communion breakfasts. Guest speakers and discussion periods bring the club nearer to its intellectual aims, while the social purpose was exhibited in the annual fish fry, dance and Baccalaureate breakfast for Seniors.

These farsighted "fathers" were determined to find activities to encourage energetic membership and promote student advancement in psychology at college. Field trips to Sunrise Court and the Crippled Chil- dren's Guild and research at the Erie County Jail, the Morgue and the psychological labora- tories of the University of Buffalo formed an interesting program. Today many of the same activities are carried on, with the addi- tion of a field trip to the State Hospital Y. W. C. A., the oldest existing organization at the college was only two Years old when the first Elms appeared in l9l2.

RURAL CLUB Organization of the Rural Club on our campus took place in the fall of i934 under the guidance of Miss Bardwell, former faculty member. Dr. Kate Wof- ford took over sponsorship of the group when Miss Bardwell left the college. Besides stimulating interest in rural life and its problems through discussion, the club provides an opportunity for participating in services for the rural com- munity. This year's activities included a skating party, sleigh ride, barn dance, a lecture on classroom experiences of a new teacher, and the giving of gifts to many needy Rural school children. The program culminated in a Faculty-Critic Banquet at which the modern rural school was discussed during the evening 52 The Association for Childhood Education represents the merging of two or- ganizations, the International Kindergarten Union and the National Council of Primary Education, each organized to promote better educational oppor- tunities for young children. The A. C. E. was founded at State Teachers Col- lege in l938, with Jane Adams serving as tirst president. The club is a chap- ter ot the National Association whose aims are to gather and disseminate knowl- edge of the movement of education of kindergarten and primary grade school children. A. C. E.'ers work together to promote a more general understand- ing of the value ot early childhood education and strive to attain these goals through work with children at Neighborhood Houses, discussion groups, field trips, and by inviting many guest speakers to their meetings whenever possible ASSOCIATION FOR CHILDHOOD EDUCATION President ...... .....

Irene Marin l 53 F Back in 'l928, when French was a sign ot culture on the cam- F O R E l G N pus, a group of enthusiasts formed a club called "L'Allainge N G U A G E Francaise." Regular meetings, dealing with the customs and in- C L U B terests of France, were conducted in French and open to all stu- dents in the French Section. ln i936 a more humble name, "Les Amateurs de la France" was adopted by the organization. Any student who had studied, or was studying French was eligible to join the group. Thus the group grew, as did their knowledge through lec- tures of the noted linguists of that day. To allow for the college's grow- ing curriculum, the organization's name, in l943, was changed to "Foreign Language Club," and membership was increased to include students able to speak Latin and Spanish. With this broader scope the club flourishes today in carrying out its social and cultural purposes. The fun of meeting students with like interests and appreciation of languages and the customs of the people who speak them is stimulating and insures the group of a prosperous future, for com- prehension of languages is of ever-increasing value in this changing world of today President ,..,... , , ...,.,. ......

The N.E.A. magazine has been the "text-book" of the organization, but a look at their minutes shows they weren't test-book bound. Baking and selling cookies is an annual event of long stand- ing as has been the candy sale. Their meetings included trips to Niagara Falls, indoor picnics and parties, as well as lec- tures, movies and discussions.

As stated in the con- stitution, its twofold purpose was to keep informed about world economic con- ditions and to develop social activities in the Home Economics Department. These purposes exist today, although they have been supplemented with timely ad- ditions. In 1917 the club worked in coniunction with the Red Cross by doing "buddy work." Candy sales were held and from the proceeds was purchased a hos- pital bed. The recent war did not find the Home Ec Club lagging, for the mem- bers made clothes which were donated to the Red Cross-and as a great service to the college, mended the bathing suits which were impossible to buy.

Originally a part of the College As- sociation, the Council became independent two years ago and drew up a new charter. The purpose of promoting a closer spirit of friendliness among students, developing leadership, and an interest in athletics has been carried out this year in a vigorous program of intramural and intermural sports. Under the new constitution points are earned for a letter and at the end of four years a gold key is awarded. The com- petition for awards has encouraged team cooperation and the development of individual ability in the many after hour sports. At the end of each sport season there were competi- tive play-ofts between teams, and faculty-student games 58 v, ,I E The 25th Anniversary of the Art Kraft Klub was celebrated last year. A. K. K. was organized by a small group of students interested in crafts and the pro- motion of leadership and character. At first limited to women students, the or- ganization became co-ed after a majority vote, and membership was extended to all departmental students who showed talent and initiative. Klub l300, tem- porarily replacing the traditional Stunt Nite, has rooted itself firmly into State's social calendar. Proceeds of the dance become part of a scholarship fund for a deserving freshman art student. Interested now in campus service, A. K. K. supervises bulletin boards and cartoon proiects. Each fall the informal costume party serves as a proving ground for students of all departments seeking the coveted A. K.

At first under the guidance of Miss Jane Keeler, For- mer speech and dramatic instructor at the old Normal School, the dramatic group became more highly organized under Miss Mina Goossen. After the college moved to 1300 Elmwood Avenue the dramatic club was enlarged with Casting Hall and its active committees resulting. Lighting facilities, make-up supplies, properties and costumes have increased yearly, the costume room now holds scores of period costumes and accessories which are available to students. Anyone interested in any phase of dramatics finds his challenge in Casting Hall, for the concerted effort that lies behind a brief moment on the stage demands the fullest cooperation of the club's many departments 61 1 ,JJ -V' 'tiff .jfff,,,a sENloR woMEN's GLEE CLUB WM' ,ff Jw '- W ' aff y M ,Q 'g llffls -V M W lg President ........ . . ..., Lorraine Williams Secretary ......,. . .....

The club, as a member of the New York State Federation of Music Clubs, partici- pated in the annual Intercollegiate Festival of Western New York Women's Glee Clubs. From 1933 to 1936 our Buffalo State Teachers Glee Club won the competition, and was not allowed to compete the following year. One of the oldest and most active organizations on campus, the girls have served the col- lege through assembly concert programs and Lenten services, and through 'carols at the Christmas pageant and music at commencement exercises at June-time 63 - , f- .1 a 'hip n fig- ,,.-' .n ,. ,WWW r' 'QQ in 1 af-- A s -f Qatawv I-.,. ,,'ziv',1Q' , . .ifqj , --wg 5 Q 3 E' 'f 'vw 'iQ v y A CAPELLA CHOIR At the Spring Concert the A Cappella Choir, new to campus this year, gave its first public appearance.

With the return of men to the college, this mixed choir directed by Mr. Silas Boyd, Music Department head, attained a tonal quality rarely achieved by musical groups on campus MEN'S GLEE CLUB ln the early years of Men's Glee Club, a student member was elected annually as a director. Mr. Harold Crain, a faculty member, took over the group in i940 and revived enthusiastic interest, holding informal meetings at his home. The club proposed to give the men the pleasure of expressing themselves in song at school concerts as well as at informal picnics and parties. Mr. Silas Boyd suc- ceeded Mr. Crain who left State in i9-45.

The group is more than a satelite of the older group in that it holds a commendable place in college activities. It has always occupied a "listenable" position in S.T.C. spring concerts. The glee club played an im- portant part in helping to make the traditional Christmas play a success. With a membership of approximately sixty girls, the group is renewed each year, for the older members are prepared to belong to the Senior Women's Glee Club 66 DANCE CLUB Under the leadership of student Dorothy Fedigan, who organized the group in 1941, the Dance Group first appeared as part of the Dramatic Club. As inter- est in dancing increased, membership correspondingly grew larger and in 1944 the Dance Group became an independent organization. A request for a temporary charter was drawn up by Miss Fedigan in the Spring of 1945 and was granted by the Student Activity Committee. The Dance Group, now consisting of two parts, the training and advanced groups, has a total membership of thirty-five. ln an active program, the girls meet on the average of two days a week for intensive training in various exercises and dance steps of ballet, modern dance and folk dance. The girls have already presented their creative dancing at college musi- cales, and have successfully performed at previous Casting Hall productions ' 67 PAN-HELLENIC ORGANIZATION That the six national sororities are able to function as groups and enjoy com- mon activities in the spirit of cooperation and mutual respect evidenced on cam- pus, is because of the guidance of Pan-Hellenic Society. This organization, com- posed of members from each sorority was established here in the late l920's. The society includes the president, vice president, and an elected representative from each Greek-letter group, together these people formulate rush season rules and serve as a clearing-house for all interested non-sorority women. Each fall Pan-Hellenic Society holds a party to introduce all eligible women to the six groups. The friendly personal contact with sorority women is of great benefit to those who desire more intimate knowledge of sorority work and organization President ...........,....,........,.,....

Two years ago when wartime man shortage made the traditional Sweetheart Dance impractical, Alpha Sigma Alpha held a dessert- bridge fashion show, called Victory Vogues, in the college gym. They followed through this year with Fashion Fantasy, an even greater success. Founded at Farmville, Virginia, in l9Ol, Pi Pi chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha came to our campus when Clio, a local New York State sorority became national in 1913. The group has grown along with the college, and is now,active in social work as well as social life. The sorority posts lists of servicemen's birthdays in all organization boxes. Along with the usual slumber parties, houseparties and other activities typical of sorority life, Alpha Sigs held their traditional Christmas dance at Tudor Castle, exhibiting the hospitality for which they are known by everyone Pfefldentl A I Vice-Presiden' ' ' ' f, , - . , , . ,.... , I A b - -Betty Deweese """--.lrm Seq,- -fif' ,. ..

Originally founded at Ypsilanti, Michigan, Sigma chapter of the organization was founded at the Normal School in l925. At their chapter house on Forest Ave- nue the girls carry on the business and social activities common to all well func- tioning sororities. The girls' annual Rose Sale, this year, was a particular suc- cess-the reason obvious: more men on campus. Alpha Sigma Tau's Bingo Stand at the "Y" Carnival attracted State "gamblers," who flocked around the feet of Dame Fortune during a grecit part of the evening. Every year the sorority gives the Luella Chapman Scholarship to a deserving student . . . Alpha Sigma Tau's high ideals are carried on, and a great service is rendered to the college in this way 6 5 I m Delta Sig's new home on Meadow Road has been the scene of many unusual parties this year, and the Spanish architecture provided a beau- tiful setting for the group's activity. Organ- ized at Miami University at Oxford, Ohio, in 1914, Delta Sigma Eps-ilon's chapter in Buf- falo began at State Teachers in 1926. Out- standing service is given by Delta Sigs each year when they sponsor the Red Cross Drive. The sorority also addresses the Records which are sent to servicemen. The plaque, finished this year, commemorating the winner of each lnterclass Sing, was a gift truly appreciated by the college. Along with campus service, the sorority social calendar was complete from September until the June houseparty. The Found- ers' Day Tea in September, Chapter Birthday and Mother's Day Tea, as well as the Annual Spring Dance, Striker Weekend and Pledge Slumber Party have kept the Delta Sigs busy- DELTA SIGMA EPSILON President ,.... .....,...............,.....

She, with thirteen compan- ions, founded Pi Kappa Sigma sorority at Michigan State Normal College at Ypsi- lanti, Michigan in l894. The dream has carried on, to make Pi Kappa Sigma one of the twenty-seven active chapters. Recently the sorority welcomed a new chap- ter, Alpha Chi, at Ball State Teachers College in Indiana. On May Day the tro- pics invaded the campus with Pi Kap's annual Gardenia Sale. Spring and tall houseparties brought out the girls' love of outdoor recreation. At Y Carnival and after lnterclass Sing apple suckers a la' Pi Kappa Sigma were on sale. Pi Kap carried out a Spanish theme with its dance, "Night of Dreams," held in the college gym. The sorority has been active not only in various social activities but in campus service as well. Pi Kappa Sigmas have aided in bolstering the morale of our servicemen by sending them Christmas and Easter greetings, and they have also contributed very generously to the college Dormitory Fund 76 wr Q wr ,ff I fJlvj.fx.

In June of the following year the local Pan-Hellenic Associ- ation and Social Program Committee recognized the sorority as an organiza- tion on campus, and in January of 1927 the sorority sent a petition of accept- ance to Theta Sigma Upsilon. The acceptance was formally announced in Feb- ruary, 1927. Twenty years have not seen any lessening of the original vital- ity of the Theta Sigs. At Halloween time tired spirits were reiuvenated with the cider and doughnuts sold by the girls at their booth in the Student Center. A hayride with Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity at Thanksgiving time was a novel entertainment. Extending hospitality to both faculty members and sorority women, Theta Sigma Upsilon held its Courtesy Day Tea in January. At the Y Carnival, the group again operated its traditional Chamber of Horrors. Theta Sigs have contributed much to the social service work of the college, and still are devoting the third Thursday of each month to the U.S.O., where their service is needed gr: . . ..f Vice-President ..... . ....... im re aus Secretary .... ..... . .....

The fraternity was founded with the desire that "its ideals never become tarnished and its future never clouded." From 1924 until 1943 this ideal was carried out, but in 1943 came the war, in this year the fraternity closed its books while many members went into the armed forces. Until late in 1944 Psi Phi remained inactive, but with the aid of faculty and the few members left started anew. This year Psi Phi renewed traditions.

These seventeen founders were heartily commended for their spirit by the college faculty and the group was recognized as a major college organization. Men in other schools soon ioined this movement to obtain a national fraternity in teachers colleges, and other chapters were quickly formed. Today Sigma Tau Gamma has twenty-eight chap- ters in fifteen states, and approximately 1500 members are in military service at the present time. Members of Rho chapter have succeeded in staying active and have kept their house open to all out of town men on campus during the the war. The social calendar is one of the many useful projects carried out by Sig Tau. ln addition to a skating party, the annual White Rose Dance, which is one of the many fine traditions on campus, was presented as usual, thanks to the splendid cooperation given by bothestudents and faculty so very generously 86 Q.

M ary Bertell er, ......, Gioia Ottaviano The idea of an S.T.C. handbook is credited to Mr. Stephen Clement, former professor of So- ciology at State. Its purpose, as outlined by the first committee, was to introduce freshmen to college life. The Faculty and Student Coun- cil of Buffalo Normal School organized the Freshman Handbook in 1924, and the newly organized Social Program Committee provided a committee to edit the publication which con- tained a summary of regulations, activities and traditions touching each student's college life. The Handbook's constitution was adopted in T939, officially naming the guide "The Student Handbook of State Teachers College at Buffalo." For the past few years the Handbook has been connected with the Student Publications Commit- tee. From a forty-page booklet, the Student Handbook has grown to a hundred-page manu- al, adequate in campus coverage, functioning 90 for students in making their minds campus clear The first issue of the Record, a magazine of forty pages, was published in 1913 under editor-in-chief Agnes B. Reiman. Its purpose of advancing literary interest as well as keeping the outside informed of activities was shown in original poetry, school news and notes. There was also a full-page advertisement on the back cover concerning the University of Buffalo. Under it in small type, the present slogan, f'Patronize our advertisers-mention the Record." Since 1929 the Record's make-up has been similar to that of the present issues. Last year the paper was given a second class rating by the Associated Collegiate Press, where formerly it was rated third class. Yearly the editorial staff has improved the publication, this year's Record achieved a newspaper-like effect through experimentation on newsprint paper and the use of large type headings. Forceful editorials, news and features have made the Record a student paper with full student support w-""r ff '41 Editors ....................

Social Centers, the Foyer, Library and Student Center are decorated to capture the spirit of the holiday season. During the Christmas vacation of l93O, Buffalonians were treated to the sight of a college being moved. As a sentimental gesture,Dean Reed and Cornelia Burzynski, a stu- dent, hung the largest wreath they could find upon the door of the school which they were leaving. Unknowingly, with this affectionate token of farewell, they started a tradition that has become a part of our association with Christmas and the Campus. lt was Cornelia who named this tradition, for Dean Reed desired something which would typify the spirit of the day . . . and what better suited the occasion than "Holly Hanging?" At first the college held a general open-house. Students, faculty and guests were given sprigs of greens with which to deck the halls. Later this developed into a compe- tition between the four classes, each assigned to a specific section of the building. The winning decorations were select- ed by a iudging committee composed of faculty members, and the exciting day was climaxed by the Christmas Play presented by Casting Hall. This year we hearkened back to that day in 1930, for the winning class had the honor of hanging a wreath on the center door of the college in a special Wreath Hanging ceremony, exhibiting the same spirit, "Peace on Earth, Good Will to Men," which had been shown fifteen years previously , 34.251 Q., fa 1-vi X Y CARNIVAL Gay throngs . . . happy, laughing people . . . good times . . . Where? Naturally at Y Carnival,a comparatively new tradition that has as its purpose service to the college and its many stu- dents. The Carnival was first started in February of T938 in order to establish a YWCA loan fund which would bene- fit any State student in need of financial aid. Every organi- zation on campus was invited to have a concession at the Carnival . . . out of this was born Delta Sig's famous" "Beer Garden," and A.K.K.'s Sketch Booth, along with many other novel booths which have helped to make Y Carnival an out- standing affair on the college calendar. This social event is invariably supported by the whole college, it is a time when good fellowship and keen competition are merged, pro- ducing the festive carnival spirit. The gym, divided into nu- merous booths, each attracting attention with barkers, and noisemakers, becomes almost a boardwalk. The atmosphere is charged with excitement . . and the hubbub of hundreds of voices shows that people are enioying themselves everywhere. Proceeds from "State Fair" are used to support the Red Cross I Cheer Fund and other worthwhile charitable organizations here .JW . W Wrifirif il f iiwttfwr?

We accept Moving Up-Day as a beautiful tradition-but traditions change. The present event is a far cry from the first which occurred about l92l. In the 20's the whole college took part in the "College A- float," started by Harry Abate, this included the chartering of a boat to Crystal Beach where over two-thirds of the stu- dent body used the amusement facilities and had a "fun day." At a later date the tradition took place out of doors . . . a spectacular affair with organizations competing in floats. Because of expense and war, the use of the auditorium for the exercises evolved. Now we greet the queen in an impressive crowning ceremony . . . and at her court awards are presented to those we would honor for service 'neath the Tower, in re- turn we give to the Tower and the Portico gifts which keep us here after we are gone. Each tradition has its symbolism, Moving-Up Day holds a number of meanings for each indi- vidual . . . but to everyone it remains symbolic of achievement MOVING-U DAY 97 FROSH CAMP The need to make freshmen feel they 'belonged' on campus was felt by the YWCA in l9lO, and varied approaches were used until Frosh Camp for Women materialized in l933. The camp Was originally held prior to the opening of the regular college session, but it now takes place after the first few days of registration. As a means of introducing college life to Frosh and of enabling them to meet upperclassmen , ., .,,.f and faculty, the camp functions well in acclimatizing the newcomers. The camp- ing experience is a popular activity among the upperclassmen who arrange a well rounded program for the girls. Skits and sings held at camp exploit to good ad- vantage the talents of the freshmen, and help them feel as though they had been at State for a much longer period than iust a few days. Because of the limited number which may attend camp, Y planned entertainment for those who had to re- main in Buffalo. A Home Camp was held in the gym this year, and the usual lone- liness felt by the strangers soon disappeared, for they were welcomed with true State hospitality and friendliness to the commencement of a four-year visit 1 wi'- The hectic days of Frosh Dozing are a period of Dilemma, Delirium and Delight for the two classes involved, the superior Sophs demand due homage from the un- derclassmen, while the underclassmen mentally plan revenge to be meted to the next year's unfortunates. The hazing tradition is relatively new to our campus, originating approximately in 1930. At that time there were several aims which set the tempo of the "Haze Week." Above all, the hazing was to be carried on in a friendly spirit, designed to increase interclass relationship and orient the Frosh to campus life. During the early hazings there were times when students lost sight of the significance of the activity, and frequently there existed a feeling of animosity, because of this, hazing was nearly abolished, until the students reconsidered its original emphasis. Frosh Daze as it is now named, is a highly organized activity, and fulfills the early aims. This year's Frosh Daze was one of the most exuberant and well planned hazings ever seen on campus. "Dogpatch Daze", from the beginning, through the session of 'Frosh Court,' and the Soph-Frosh Hop, captivated the true feeling of "dazing" the freshmen. This, perhaps more than any one other activity has helped the Frosh in their orientation f .Q w., KS OSH DAZIN wW 'W' 102 . . . cmd from the darkness drifts a chorus of voices following the magic path of the director's hands . . . harmonic crescendos vibrating in song at lnterclass Sing, inaugurated at State in 1928 and existing today on campus as one of our loveliest traditions. At the early Sings college cheers were given in addition to the regular program of songs, and the affair was almost a pep-rally. Class and college spirit increased as a result of the Sing. The cooperation necessary in practice before final presentation united students in friendly com- petition. Out of this tradition arose such 'familiar college songs as "Join in the Cheer for Buffalo," "The Orange and Black," and a host of others, all a part of our association with the college. Sings demand hard work and creativeness on the part of each class, each year brings new original songs . . . some remain to become favorites. At the closing of this year's Sing, Dr. Rockwell again stepped onto the stage to announce the winning class . . . students leaned forward in their seats, breaths held in anticipation . . . and the winner, the FRESHMEN, class of '-49!

Favorable conditions for bronchitis, lar- yngitis and over-eating . . . behind the scenes were pie-beds, fun and food-Frosh Camp! Monday I started decoding my new schedule . . . Hmm, MALE instructors, MALE classmates, time to get to work. Since I was not the type to carry college spirit far, I wore my black skirt and orange sweater only four out of five days. I was all set for Frosh Dazing, and became a true "Dogpatcher" in real style. As the cadence of voices rang at lnterclass Sing, I knew there was only one choice, one song . . . and the FRESHMEN won! I participated in a great social af- fair, the Faculty-Freshman Tea. My hand was limp, my smile was tired, but l'll always remember it. In accordance with our class motto, "originality at all cost," we elected a male maiority of class oFFicers. Let it snow, let it snow. Gosh, it was still snowing when I helped my classmates turn the library into "Ye Olde State Inn," for Holly Hanging. The new semester brought basketball, swimming, plans for a picnic, and forty-two men returning to college as Frosh. In June I knew pages I through 540 in my Psych book . . . the exam covered pages 54I to 542. And so, having striven valiantly in my second encounter with the "Exam Fathers," I did embark victorious upon the awaited summertime vacation . . . ah . .June President ..... . . , ,Antoine Wood Vice-President . . .....

The month flew by-and it was . . . OCTO- BER . . . falling leaves, and veterans on campus. Though we didn't win Sing, we gathered in the Student Center and sang. Then it was Halloween, and . . . NOVEMBER . . . with rush parties, mid-semesters and warnings!

We started motors running and became Junior Counselors. And we coun- seled those freshmen: we showed them the 'ropes', taught them the proper way to study, and all in all were there to lend those newcomers a helping hand. Then came the dreamy evening of tinkling bells, swishing formals, and soft music. The Junior Prom, aptly titled "Snow Whirl," with its beautiful queen, became a tradi- tion again. And as we pause to look back over this past year, many other scenes become very expressive of our '45-'46 life on campus. The tremendous excitement of running a close second at Interclass Sing, and the festivities at Holly Hanging made the semester before mid-year's truly gala.The Spring Banquet, something new, where both food and fun were unrationed, preceded the climax to a wonder- ful' year, Moving-Up Day, when we took another step toward reaching our ulti- mate graduation . . . a large step, and more final, we are proud of our progress President .,............ .............

J e an Arnold Surely we must feel gratified for a job well done, yet we know that a challenge is before us. In four years at State, engaging in studies, sports, and extra-cur- ricular activities, we've developed mentally and spiritually, for knowledge formulates character. Being a freshman was like a long joy ride. We grew wiser, sophisticated and more assured. Another September brought us back to college as Junior Counselors, the pace increased and we took on a professional hue. Al- though we started the year as students, we left, students still, but teachers as well. Now on the top rung of the ladder we hesitate, in' moving to something higher. Faced with the same objectives, ideas and problems confronting all grad- uates, the class of '46 is grateful for -the heritage which was ours at State H8 NIOR CLA 2 5, if.
