Page 2 Freshman of the Month James Sutterby One of the outstanding fresh men at Paul Smith’s College this year is James (Jim) Sutterby. Jim was born June 26, 1931 and attend ed Hendrick Hudson High School. Although we all know that Jim has found a home at Paul Smith’s Col­ lege, he claims 520 Dyckman Street Peekskill, N.Y. as his permanent residence. In Jim’s precollege days, he spent a period of time in the U.S. Marine Corps. While in the mar­ ines, he was stationed largely in the San Francisco area until his discharge on August 15, 1952. Here at Paul Smith’s, Tim is taking the Hotel Management course. While on the W est Coast he became interested in hotel work and plans to return there someday. Jim’s extra curricular activities constitute the major part of his leisure time as he is a member of Veferans Club, Yearbook Staff, Flotel Club, Student Christian A s­ sociation, besides being on the Inter-Dorm Council and being the Freshman Hotel Representative to the Student Council. $ o s t S c r i p t J k r t t e E d i t o r - i N 'C h i e f Jacqueline St. John S t a f f Business Manager Chuck Randall Layout Cynthia Bates Circulation Manager George Parry Reporters Phyllis Brown Joe Canseri Larry Carey Bernie Collins Al Gates Katie Highland Roy Miltner Irene Olson M arty Richardson Jerry Sevits Claire St. John Gary Thomas Milly Tuohey Gene Walsh Advisors Dr. McKee Mr. Tyldesley P O S T Our Best Dance Yet The title of this article expresses the comments, of many who were present-at the Forestry Club’s an­ nual Paul Bunyan dance this year. Held in our spacious new gym­ nasium, the affair proved a big sue cess even though a minor dif^ficulty interrupted a smooth running pro gram. Decorations consisting of spruce and pine trees encircled the basket ball court, while on the wall were hung axes, saws, and a collection of hats from prominent people on campus. Across the front of the stage the words Paul Bunyan Dance written in real ground pine carried the outdoor atmosphere to even a greater extent. Few paper streamers were used except to de­ corate the stage and the* higher part of the auditorium. All the work was done by the Forestry Club members and they all did a swell job. Approximately 50 couples were present for the fun and square dancing and there was plenty of room on the floor. Refreshments consisting of soda, popcorn, and donuts were sold in the basement for those who wanted a snack. The Rythym Rascals furnished the music for the affair and during the intermission the selection of the best beard was made and the sawing contest was held. Fresh man Forester Lyle Brown won the beard contest, and Red Chamber- lain took second prize. The sawing contest which was delayed after 3 teams had made their cuts, was won by the great Terminal Soph, team of Fox and Kilner. They sliced through the tough, green 10 inch beech log in a cool 38 seconds for two consecutive cuts. The Ter­ minal Frosh came in second with a time of 54 seconds which was still 13 faster than the Pre-Pro Frosh. The reason for the delay was that the lights went out, mak­ ing it necessary to finish the con test by lantern and flashlight. When the sawing contest was over, three girl-boy teams com­ peted against each other in cut­ ting the log. Toe Baumeister and his date Marge won and were re­ warded with fine round of applause and comments. Some of the Alumni present also took their chance with the saw and showed how it was done in their day. N ext the drawing of the door prize was made and Ray Demolin won a handsome lighter for his number At 12:30 the lights were on again and the band resumed the playing of the music. The dance ended at 1:00 and when all the TELEPHONE — (from page 1) also mentioned that there are over twenty five million TV sets with an average of four viewers each. That makes a grand total of over one hundred million viewers of television in this country today. We were sliown models of the cable that now carries hundreds of thousands of messages and tele vision programs at one time. These messages are all unscrambled with­ out mix up and the TV programs cross the whole continent in a fraction of a second. Mr. Paige also proved very ef­ fectively that electric energy will pass through the human body. For this part of the demonstration he lined up five of the fair damsels from the multitude on the P.S.C. campus. Through the chain formed by the young ladies holding hands he sent part of his talk and musi cal selections. Mr. Paige also showed us the elaborate set-up that relays our television programs from one sta­ tion to another in a nationwide hookup. This demonstration in volved the use of two model towe’rs with sending and receiving anten­ nas on the top of each of them. There is now a string of these towers on hilltops approximately thirty miles apart which reach all the way across the United States. All in all I think that nearly every student came away from that fine lecture in some way impressed with new facts about telephone and television that h.e hadn’t known before. S C R I P T ______ _____ __ guests had left, the Forestry Club members stayed on and cleaned the gym up completely. By 2:00 there wasn’t a tree, an axe, or so much as a piece of paper left in the hall and everyone went home well satis­ fied. Now for the Forestry Club I would like to say to our guests, “thanks for attending, and to our advisor and to all those who help­ ed much thanks for a job well done.” SEE YOU N E X T YEAR! Irene the one question which pro bably everyone has been asked at one time or another. “What was your first impression of Paul Smith’s College?” Irene thought for, a moment or two and then said, “Miserable, absolutely miser­ able.” Now this startling answer seemed to require a little explana­ tion but Irene continued. “It rained and poured for three solid days and everything was a sea of mud.” This final comment closed the interview and suspended my quest­ ions until next month’s “victim”. December 18, 1953 Sophomore of the Month Irene Olson Thirty miles south of Albany, New York, lies the small farming town of Medusa. This is the home­ town of this month’s sophomore of the month. Irene Olson was born on Febru­ ary 27, 1935 and attended the Greenville High School. After graduation, she enrolled at Paul Smith’s College in the fall of 1952 in the Liberal Arts course. At this point in the interview I asked Irene how did she happen to select Paul Smith’s College? She thought for a moment and then answered in a very deliberate man ner. “I believe it was the country and the setting which influenced my decision to come here.” It seems that the crystal clear lak€s surrounded by towering mountains did much to encourage Irene to continue her schooling here. Asked what her favorite food is Irene replied. “I like everything.” For school wearing apparel Irene favors levis and blouses (mainly because she likes the informality of the college campus). The three hobbies which occupy Irene’s leisure time are trumpet playing which she has indulged in for the past two years, and watching basketball and softball. At present Irene is a member of the newly- formed P.S.C. girls’ basketball team. Her extra curricular activities on campus include a wide range: she is secretary of the Student Council, president of the W omen’s Dorm Council, secretary of the Outing Club, secretary of the Stu­ dent Christian Association, a mem­ ber of the editorial board for the year book and a member of the Rifle Club (she owns a .22 and a shotgun). “I would like to work for Gen­ eral Electric in one of their New York State branches as a mathe­ matician”, Irene responded when I asked her what she planned to do after graduation this coming June.
