$ o s t m S c r i p t PAUL SMITH'S COLLEGE, PAUL SMITHS, NEW YORK Terry and faithful companion ponder upcoming problems in Forestry Department. Woodsmen 6B’ Team Takes First A t M acDonald College On January 31st, the “B” Woods­ men Team won first place in the 11th Annual Intercollegiate Woods­ men Competition at McDonald Col lege in St. Bellevue, Canada. The “A ” Woodsmen Team won eighth place. Paul Smith’s College has won this event in 1964, 68 , and 69; how­ ever, this was the first time' the “B” Team has ever won first place. The “ B” Team did well in all events while most of the competing col­ leges did outstandingly well in a few: however, it was the “B” Team’s continuous effort which made the winning difference. Some of the competing colleges were McGill University, Syracuse, Dartmouth College, Laval, Nichols College', University of Maine, Mid­ dlebury College, Penn State, and McDonald College. The sixteen col­ leges competed in felling, chopping, cross cut, axe throw, dot split, pulp throw, splitting, buck saw, chain saw, water boil and snowshoe events. The “A ” and “B” Teams under the direction of their advisor, Mr. Hoyt, stayed on campus over the semester break to practice for the competition. The “B” Team mem­ bers were: Bill Maszden, Capt., Ed Clemmo, Al Sands, Rick Arn­ old, Paul Cate, John Marona, and Brent Kolhonen. The “A” Team members were: Richard Macin­ tosh. Capt., Randy Thompson, Randy McCabe, John Pinkos, Lar­ ry Rydzewski, Paul Seneca and Tom Bowley. Assisting both teams as stewards were Wayne Knott, Chris Walroth and Al Ochs. These stewards did an outstanding job taking care of equipment and assisting the teams. The Paul Smith’s College Woods­ mens Team has always been a source of pride to the college and students. Post Script congratulates the Woodsmen’s Team on their win at MacDonald College. Vol. X X I I Fish and Game Club The Biology of Black Bears was the topic discussed at the Febru ary 9th meeting of the Paul Smith’s Fish and Game Club. Held in the Brighton Town Hall, the monthly meeting got off to a slow start, owing to the large attend­ ance. Professor Simkins said that the next federation meeting wrould he on February 18th, and at the (Continued on page 4) In the Forestry Dept. A number of students enrolled in the pre professional forestry course at Paul Smith’s believe that their real surveying teacher on weekday afternoons is a little four­ legged instructor named Terry . . . For these students, here is a bit of supplemental information. Terry is not only a surveying instructor but he is also the head of the For­ estry Department. Usually he is seen on campus wit h Dean Ruther­ ford at his side. Dean Rutherford has accompan ied Terry for the past eight years and intends to stay close to Terry so that he will be able to handle all the paperwork involved in heading the Forestry Department when Terry goes on vacation. Your reporter was somewhat dis appointed when he went to Terry’s office for an interview. The only one lie found there to interview was Dean Rutherford. During the interview, the dean said he had knowledge of some of the future plans of the department, since he and Terry had discussed one of these plans earlier that day. He said that Terry’s fondest wish was to construct a new sawmill on campus. Terry had said the sawmill was coming, but he wasn’t quite sure just when. This new sawmill would help solve the problem of the terminal foresters having to travel to Wilmington each summer for their sawmilling experience. The dean was asked w h a t was the; attitude of the Forestry De­ partment concerning the length of foresters’ hair. He replied that, for safety reasons, long hair can’t be allowed, and told me that the new catalog being issued to applicants for admission contains a section stipulating that all foresters must obey safety regulations established by the college. So, to all those heads of hair in forestry: Heed the word of warning! Beware of the man with the scisssors!

The Theme was to be “Circus Time.” The circus started off with i mixer, Friday evening, in the PSC campus recreation hall. Music was provided by the W ild Weeds, im­ ported for the occasion from Con necticut. Admission to the mixer was part of a weekend package, costing only four dollars a couple, two dollars a person. The fact that free beer was included in the package undoubtedly accounted for the several “gentlemen” who at­ tended unaccompanied. Chris “ Dewy” White was in charge of the decor, black and gold streamers accenting a silver background.

Persons who have numbers ranging from one to one hundred hate the draft lo- tery. Persons who range from three hundred to three hundred and sixty-six like it.” (Continued on page 4 ) Your Winter Driving Reckless or Wreckless This article is the partial text of an interview with trooper Doug R. Muldoon of the New York State* Police, stationed in Ray Brook. 15 of every 100 persons will be in­ volved in an accident this winter. This article contains many tips and suggestions which may reduce this accident hazard. Q. Should tires be deflated a bit in the winter? A. To a certain extent, yes. Lower pressure in a tire will give more traction. But when you get on dry roads, it’s best to follow the m a n u f a c t u r er’s recommenda­ tions. I read somewhere that ap­ proximately 80% of your winter driving is done on clear dry roads. Only 20 % is really on ice and snow. I don’t deflate my tires in the winter time. The only time I’ve done that is when I ’m (Continued on page 5) T R OOPER MULDOON
