Buxton, PSC President, Roger Tubby, Director of Development, and Karl Kroetz, Alumni Director, spoke of Paul Smith’s programs and plans for the future at the capacity dinner which was attended by many alumni as well as studentb who were attending the Exposition. Present also was John St. John from London, England, who ar­ ranged the highly successful PSC student tour in the British Isles last spring. He is working with Harry Purchase, Head of the Hotel and Resort Management Department, on a program for an­ other tour next year. At the Exposition the college had a booth in the Educational Section, staffed by students. Mr. Purchase led the PSC student delegation to the Exposition as­ sisted by Mr. H. Sidney Eighmey of the Hotel and Resort Manage­ ment faculty. The Exposition, covering four floors of the Coliseum, had on dis­ continued on page 3) Paul M. Cantwell Member of Board of Trustees, Dies Paul Munger Cantwell, for many years a member of the Board of Trustees of Paul Smith’s College, and treasurer, died suddenly Octo­ ber 25 after being stricken with a heart attack in his Malone law office. Mr. Cantwell was not only a strong supporter of the college but a close personal friend of many Board members, staff and faculty. Mr. Cantwell, born in Malone 63 years ago, was a leader in civic affairs there. He was president of the Citizens Bank, and for many years was a member of the Frank­ lin Academy Academic Board, as well as treasurer, and he also serv­ ed on the Malone Board of Edu­ cation. He had also served on the Alice Hyde Hospital Board. His law firm, Cantwell and Cant­ well, is one of the leading law firms in the North Country. Among its clients is Paul Smith’s College. His brother, John M. Cantwell, Jr., was president of the PSC Board of Trustees. Paul Cantwell graduated from Franklin Academy, Union College and Harvard Law School. In 1939 he married Elisabeth Mae Bellows I o f Saranac Lake, who survives him. Also, surviving are their two sons, Paul, Jr. and James. Paul, Jr., who has been in the law firm with his father for several years, lives in Malone with his wife and baby daughter. James attended Paul Smith’s College for a year and is now a senior at Albany Law School. Blood Bank Yields 319 Pints Twice a year, fall and spring, as certain as autumn leaves and spring thaws, the American Red Cross Blood Bank is held at PSC. And every year the total number of pints donated is watched eager­ ly. The record at PSC is 501 pints, donated in the spring of 1971, which means that more than half of the PSC students and faculty members reported to Buxton gym­ nasium because some potential donors are always turned away be­ cause of colds or other reasons. So each time the Blood Bank has been held since then the question is, will we top the old record? This fall the Blood Bank, held October 24 and 25, fell short of the record; the total was 319 pints, or approx­ imately 400 fifths, for those of you who uses fifths as your stand­ ard measure. However, this the do­ nation of 319 pints still indicates a strong interest on the part of the PSC community in helping other people. And there’s still next next spring to shoot for 502 — or more — pints! The Blood Bank is sponsored at PSC by the members of the Inter- Fraternity Council and they were on hand in the gym in force both days, assisting their classmates and the Red Cross nurses. Since spring of 1971 the I.F.C. has held a “ keg contest,” donating a keg of befer to the dorm or group that has the highest percentage of members reporting to donate bleod. White Pine Camp won the keg this time with 1009c of its 22 residents reporting.
