V, No. 4 PAUL SMITH’S COLLEGE, PAUL SMITHS, NEW YORK November 29, 1950 ED DONCHEY Plans Under Way For Christmas Cotillion Arrangements are now under­ way for the preparation of the Christmas Cotillion Dance, spon­ sored by the Newman Club, which will be held in the attractive and informal ballroom of Durgan’s on Saturday evening, December ninth. The co-chairmen, Pat Acciari and John Paolone, and Martha Bedell, chairman of the social committee, have arranged an enjoyable week­ end for this occasion. This semi- formal dancc has become a tradi­ tion at Paul Smith’s. To create a good Christmas atmosphere, plans have been drawn up to decorate the campus as well as the dorms and the hotel.

Last fall, an outstanding recogni­ tion award was presented to the college by the Columbia Scholas­ tic Press Association, as well as, by the National Press Association, for the notably well-executed year­ book in its particular division and so last spring an even greater de­ gree of interest and activity was mustered to produce another out­ standing yearbook. The CSPA, since its founding 26 years ago, has read and judged 4452 yearbooks and 20,249 maga­ zines and newspapers. The entries in last year’s contest numbered 660 (continued on page 4) The Paul Smith’s “Bobcats” are ready for their first encounter of the season which opens tonight in the college gymnasium against Marlboro College of Vermont. This game opens the 1950-51 season which includes an eighteen game schedule, continuing right through the first of March. Coach Tobey has had the boys practicing ever since the first of October, so they should be in good condition to tackle the rough schedule which confronts them. This year’s team should be great­ ly improved over last year’s squad. Last year the “Bobcats” ended the season with six wins and six de­ feats. This was due to lack of re­ serves and lack of experience in college basketball. Consequently as the first five had to play most JIM DELANEY TOBEY HUHTA MEN OF THE WEEK This Issue Dedicated To The P.S.C. Varsity Basketball Team These are the men who are going to make basketball his­ tory at P.S.C. this year. KEN TOBEY: Coach “Ken” was born and raised in Malone, N.Y. After he giaduated '>-om the St. Joseph’s High School in Malone, he attended Cortland ED DONCHEY: Freshman; height 5 ft. 11 in. Played three and a half years at Far Rockaway High School, Long Island and was a member of the 1949-50 championship team of the Eorough cf Queens. A good shot from the outside and a real hustler, should add great strength and spirit to this year’s team. JIM DELANEY: Freshman: height 6 ft. 1 in. received his B. S. degree in 1945. After graduation he was coach AL KEMP State Teacher s College, where he Played two and one half years at Seward Park High School in New York City. Competed in the P. S. A. L.

(continued on pnrfe 3) of the game, it was difficult to keep the opposition on the move with fresh players coming into the game. This year the team is deep in re­ serves, and Coach Tobey hopes to keep the opposition running throughout the game. Also an­ other big factor is that we have more height in the starting lineup than we had last year. The prob­ able starting five tonight will be Ed Donchey, Al Kemp, Jim Hol­ comb, Jim Delaney, and Otto Huh- ta, with Ed Heim and John Prout filling in when needed. The start­ ing five will have an average of six feet in height when they take the floor against Marlboro tonight. Th^' sophomores will have a sur­ prise when they see the new outfits the team is wearing this year. Mr. Tobey has really gone all out this year to produce the best basketball team in the history of the college. This year’s schedule is definitely tougher than previous years.
