W o o d s m e n G o F o r F ifth W i n With the first woodsmen’s meet of the year only a little more than a week away, both the woodsmen’s teams and the forestry club have been busily preparing for the event.

P a u l S m i t h ’s C o lle g e H o l d s Classes in N e w Y o r k C ity by Earl Fahey The week of November 7 marked the opening of the 56th Hotel and Restaurant Exhibition in New York City. With classes excused for sophomore students wishing to attend, cars started leaving Fri day afternoon, November 5. De stination: “New York, City or Bust.” This year during the show a new function for Paul Smith’s College was being invited to attend the Inter-National Hotel’s Breakfast for students in the field of Hotel Management. This is the first year a two-year hotel school has been asked and Paul Smith’s considers it an honor to lead the way be cause four-year schools such as Cornell, University of Massachu setts and New Hampshire usually dominate this program. Unfortun ately, the number of students was limited to fifteen, but hopes are that the number will be larger next year. The breakfast was held at Charle Brown’s in the Pan Am Building. Inter-Continental Hotels, hosts of the breakfast, gave a good scope of how their chain operates and stands in today’s financial world. At noon Monday, November 8 , the Opening Luncheon was held at the Waldorf Astoria for any one wishing to attend. The guest speaker was the Chairman of Hil ton Hotel Corporation who discus sed the many aspects troubling the industry today. The afternoon was optional; we were able to attend the Hotel Show at the Coliseum, see the sights of the city or take in a movie. Monday evening, all will pro bably agree, was the high point of the whole trip. A banquet was held at Mama Leone’s Restaurant for students and alumni attend ing the show. The dinner was given by Dr. Buxton in gratitude for the student support and enthusiasm shown at the Hotel Show. Paul Smith’s had the largest delegation of schools represented. Seated at the head table with Dr. Buxton were the head of sales for the Sheraton Hotel Corp., Dr. Lum- berg, head of the Hotel School at University of Mass., and the head of the Hotel Program at Florida State. When the meal ended I took the opportunity to talk with some of the alumni. Here are a few examples of how successful they have been in the field. Mr. D. Birini, class of ’67, iss General Manager of the Holiday Inn in Al bany, New York. Mr. H. Harris, class of ’62, is Assistant Professor at Middlesex County Community \ College. Charles Miles is super visor of Mariott Inflight Service at Newark Airport. This gives an idea of the opportunities available up on graduation. Tuesday was spent viewing the many exhibits and attending sem inars given by different groups connected with the Hotel Industry. Paul Smith’s College was repres ented by a colorful booth of pic tures and brochures. The booth was staffed by students attending the show an hour at a time. Many new acquaintances were made, some of whom were people offering job opportunities for the P.S.C. graduates to fill. The F.S.E.A. chapter at Paul Smith’s College entered a culinary exhibit for the school, the first in a few years. It was among the first place winners in the student cate gory, an achievement we should hold in high regard because the talent is available if the students are willing to donate their time. Perhaps this could be the start of a tradition for Paul Smith’s Col lege to let people know what our abilities are and to show what Paul Smith’s is capable of handling. Wednesday marked the end of the happy and educational exper ience as we headed back once again for classes Thursday. Much of the conversation on the way back was dominated by the Hotel Show and what each one got out of the ex perience. Although the only definite meets of the year are the 25th Annual Intercollegiate Woodsmen’s Meet to be staged at Dartmouth in the early part of May, and the annual meet at MacDonald’s College, the teams expect to see other action before the end of the school year. RED CROSS INSTRUCTORS COURSE SCHEDULED The course is scheduled to start on January 11th at 7:30 P.M. at Paul Smith’s College Campus. The meeting place will be announced later.
