P O S T S C R I P T Page 4 STUDENT OF THE MONTH (Continued from page 3) an individual coach here at Paul Smith’s in assisting Coach Dudek in the boys’ intramural program. When not participating in some kind of sports, “Hi” is busy work­ ing on the Post Script, where he is humor editor. When asked his personal opinion of Paul Smith’s, “Hi” laughed for a moment and said, “The night life, man, could stand to be im­ proved. I’m used to much more, because I come from a bigger place.” “Hi” did say, seriously, he was glad he chose Paul Smith’s because everyone is friendly, be­ cause it isn’t a large college. An­ other advantage “Hi” commented on was New York State’s drinking age. He liked it being eighteen in­ stead of twenty-one. In June of 1968, after gradua­ tion, “Hi” plans to transfer to a bigger college with more things to do. When asked if he has any special college in mind he answer­ ed, “Yea, Saigon U.” He then went on to say he hopes to go into the field of social work. “Hi’s” main goal is to help all the Philadelphia students who have no recreational or social opportunities. A PLACE TO BE ALONE (Continued from page 3) bank in front of my lean-to is a path, which, I am sure, was worn by the foresters. There are benches extending for­ ward from each front corner. In­ side the lean-to, on my right, is a sign which says, “Paul Smith’s Terminal Foresters 1965.” Above my head there is a shelf on which someone has put some locust sticks. Probably they are being saved to use once again, to roast hot dogs or marshmallows over the fireplace. When I stand in the lean-to, I can only go about half­ way to the back because of the structure of the roof. As I walk around the lean-to to the back, I can see a hill cover­ ed mostly with low bushes and a few pine trees. Half-way up the hill are some wood piles which the foresters have made. They are starting to rot because of the weather. As I face the lean-to, ex­ tending from the side, is a half­ filled shelter for firewood. On the same side, about six feet away, is a dead, fallen tree, from which people like me have pluck­ ed dry branches to start their fire. This is a place to which I come when I feel the need to be alone or just feel closer to God. Some­ times, if I sit very still there are many small animals running a- round hunting for food. Rut now all is very still. Even the hard­ working chipmunk is gone, and I am, physically, totally alone. But I do not feel lonely. A cool breeze is now blowing; my fire is starting to die; it will soon be dark. So I must go now, but 1 shall return to my lean-to again when I feel the need for beauty and the need to be alone. CARS AND MOTOR BIKES (Continued from page 3) acter. It makes me moderate, tem­ perate, and interestd only in the status quo. Comfortable, protected, isolated, I remain immune to any desire for change. Quite opposite to this is the ef­ fect my motor bike has on me. My motor bike is a dangerous, excit­ ing machine. When I drive it my life takes on the same character­ istics. It becomes exciting and pre­ carious. The gas pedal becomes a hand throttle and the windshield a small face shield connected to a helmet. There is no comfort — only a hard seat and handle bars support me and I am acutely a- ware that this machine is alive and dangerous. I drive down the highway with the whine of the engine ringing in my ears and I am aware of the engine's heat on my legs. There is no protection, no security, and the danger of it excites me. The wind blows hard against my body and I am inten­ sely aware of the outside world. I can smell the odors of the woods; I can see all the colors and movements of the surroundings; I can feel the sun on my face. I become a part of the world. The outside world becomes my world and I become a part of it. The only thing separating me from the highway are the narrow front tires and the long shock absorbers. The whole “feel of the highway” is right there in my handlebars and I sense it all through me. I feel every bump, every hill, every curve; the full character of the highway is projected to me through the whole machine. I am awake, alive, and vividly conscious of my surroundings, the highway, the animal-like quickness of my motor bike and the total excite­ ment of it all. One word fits the sum total of these effects on me — adventure. My bike brings out the adventurous side of my char­ acter. The danger, the quick move­ ments, the feel of the highway and the awareness of the outside world all stimulate my taste for adventure and find me looking for more. Cars and motor bikes — mod­ eration and adventure. This is how they affect me. H a p p y Anniversary, by David Glassgold After centuries of time has pass­ ed, and the key to many happy marriages is a previous divorce, it is interesting to ask the world’s oldest couple the secret of their happiness. The faces of Adam and Eve show eons of contentment as they sit calmly on the comfortable bar stools at Sardi’s. Eve. in her red and blue striped mini-dress and white fish-net nylons exhibits the notorious body famous for its origin from Adam’s side. Adam, a bit more nervous than Eve, fumb­ les with the collar of his brown FRATERNITY NEWS I.F.C. NOTES by Mike Sabatello A tremendous thanks goes out to all the students who helped the blood bank establish a new re­ cord. We hope the next one does even better. Thanks again. IFC wishes to thank all those who supported the Fall Weekend and made it as big a success as it was. Because of this support, Spring Weekend should be one hell of a good time. The more we help the student council in the future the more they will help us. TAU KAPPA BETA by Fred Cherner The Brothers of Tau Kappa Beta are happy to announce ex­ pansion. Yes, we are expanding, a new chapter to be called Tau Kappa Beta, Beta Chapter, is now being formed by some of our past brothers down at Oceanside Com­ munity College, in Toms River, New Jersey. We are also working hard on the formation of an Alumni Assoc­ iation to be formed by Larry Derubo class of ’64. This is being done to further keep all brothers, past and present, in touch. A yearly get together is now under consideration. It will be held in Albany. Meanwhile, here on campus, the brothers are happy to announce the purchase of three hand-made lamp shades. The fii’st having the Fraternity ci’est, the second the Paul Smith’s College crest and thirdly one featuring the Ameri­ can Bald Eagle. On the social side, we are going ahead with plans for a Faculty Tea. Also a date is to be set at our next meeting for our annual Dorm 8 — Lambert Party to be held after Christmas. BETA ALPHA LAMBDA The Rrothers of Reta were very pleased by the turn-out for our annual Halloween party, and a very special thanks goes to all the girls who were such a big help. We have been very busy since the last edition of the Post Script. We completly refinished the floor Adam and Eve and yellow print carnaby shirt. He readily admits he would rather be home in his pool. The ageless appeal of this couple has not dwindled. Rut the most current question being asked is, “Why are they still so happy to­ gether after all these years?” It is the fact that they have had to adjust to so many things in their lifetime. Life itself never got bor­ ing for them so, in turn, they never got bored with each other. Leaning across the bar, Adam ordered another scotch and water. Turning his head toward Eve, he (Continued on page 6) January 12, 1968 in our living room and are now in the process of buying a new car­ pet to make the room complete. Watch out, Delta! DELTA ALPHA PHI by Jim Brennan So far, this has been a very good year for Delta. The Gold Room has been completely redone. The cellar is almost finished. And we haven’t lost any cars yet (last year we lost 11 cars in 16 acci­ dents.) Even thi’ough pledging has been reduced from six to three weeks, the current plans show a lot of work ahead for a good pledge class. More house improvements and projects are planned. Student Council is doing its best to give you some good times this year. The brothers of Delta Alpha Phi were glad to see you at Fall Weekend.
