Brice The life history of Peter W. K. Dietrichson, which includes every­ thing from bartending to Holly­ wood acting, is truly an intrinsic example of freedom loving people of the world. Born in Norway, August 15,1916, Mr. Dietrichson was a Jiving sentinel against the N a z 's during World W ar II. Long be \ore the war he was a merchant marine, as it was t ie custom or every Norwegian youth to go to sea. When war came he was activf in the Norwegian underground. A fter a year and a half with the underground he was forced to Are, leaving behind his mother, father, and sster, or suffer Nazi capital punishment for illegal work. In 1941 ,ie narrowly escaped in a fishing boat to London and with the N azi’s cruelty to his country­ men still vividly engraved in his mind, he joined the Royal Nor­ wegian Air Force in Canada. A punctured eardrum ended his fly­ ing service but he undauntedly came to America and joined the Norwegian Merchant Marine for a year in the Atlantic area. After receiving his medical discharge, Mr. Dietrichson spent a short time in compiling and editing news items and pictorial m aterial per­ taining to Norway’s fight for freedom. He was then sent on a five months, midwestern lecture tour in which he instilled into var­ ious organizations, clubs, schools, and churches, the need of Amer­ ican financial aid for t.ie defense of the U.S. His audiences would vary from as many as one hun­ dred to thirty thousand. The years 1942 to 1943 saw Mr. Dietrichson serving in the Nor­ wegian Maritime Service. Besides being a public speaker and radio commentator for the Norwegian Inform at'on Service during 1943 to 1944, he was assigned to the Film departm ent of the Information Service in New York City. The work during these two years was directed toward making more im- pressivo propaganda films ete to us3 in t.ieir bond drives and c’m ilar exhibits. From 1944 to 3.9 0, Mr. Dietrichson has been m aking public appearances before various groups, stressing such sub­ jects as Europe and t.ie Post (Continued on Paere CMT,bo^'ndM,s°'STUDENT COUNCIL ELECTIONS Sawyer Total 53 TO BE HELD MAY II By R.

Well, P r e s i d e n t Mrs. Bessie Crary on the m ainten­ ance staff at PSC would agree if the saying read, “cheaper by tens”. Mrs. Crary wUo resides in Otis- vilie or Paul Smiths has brought up ten children, seven boys and three girls. One of her boys, Lloyd, was en­ rolled as a forestry student at PSC and graduated in 1949. He ar.d his wife now reside at Tupper Lake where he is following hi3 ;areer in forestry. Of the seven boys, four entered fhe armed forces during t.ie war and since the war, another boy has served three years in the Army.

Mrs. Crary has been with the college since the fall of 1946 when PSC first opened its doors of ‘ knowledge. She and her sister, Mrs. Drew, work together at Dorm 2, better known as the \Snake P it”, in the mornings and on the fourth floor of Dorcn 1 in the afterroons. Incidentally, Mrs. Drew is t.ie mother in-law of Dex ter Perry, one of our Freshmen Resort Management students. Our sincere and hearty congra­ tulations to Mrs. Crary and her ten children and eighteen grand­ children wherever they may b e .! We can’t blame Mrs. Crary for bring proud of such a wonderful family.

To climax this year’s study, “Rainbow\ has in progress a unique plan by which the students will not only learn these two aspects by theory, but also by actual experimentation. Man usually has t.ie intelligence to solve his most difficult problems and when this is done he re­ ceives great satisfaction. When man can’t solve these problems ne finds .limself in an emotional and neurotic impasse. He literally has a nervous breakdown. To help prove this fact, part of the fifty rats imported by Mrs. Murp.iy from Rochester will be used as guinea pigs. Picture if you will a wooden maze built by Kenneth Brown in the shape of a T. We follow a mouse down the first corridor to a crossroad. The mouse being hunjry and smelling food at the end of the left section of this crossroad, goes toward the tempt- :ng objective. He has to cross two metal plates before getting to the morsel and receives electric s.iocks. He receives electric shocks again on leaving and. if he is foolish enough to go down the left high­ way once more, he will receive the same treatm ent. This mouse, how­ ever, is intelligent and instead of going down the left hig.iway for his food he goes down the right highway. The plates are there but no shock this time. The mouse makes it a nabit to eat his food at this place; but alas, he receives more shocks Just when he thought Well here it is election time again, and time to select the of­ ficers for our Student Council of 1951.

Along with his talk he showed slides of the sanitorium, Paul Smith’s Hotel as it was 50 years or more ago, and Saranac Lake, before and after Dr. Trudeau started his sanitorium.
