The Student Council yester
day discussed three suggest
ed plans for the 1964-65 school
year calendar and decided
overwhelmingly in favor of
Plan C which leaves the fi
nal exam period exactly as it
is now.

The other two plans were
Plan A which would have
five days of exams. The
exams would be two hours
each, with four exam periods
per day. This was the Coun
cil's second choice.
Under Plan B students
would go to school during fi
nal week according to their
regular class schedules and
the professors could give up
to three one hour final ex
aminations in each class.
The Student Council voted
this plan as their third

get their expenses paid and
divide what's left, he said.
There is a definite schedule
of division followed and the
host school is allowed an
added share to pay the rent
"We take enough money
from the districts to pay for
the trophies, and after all
expenses are paid, we share
in the bonus. We drew about
$10,000 from the 64 districts
and 16 play-offs last year,"
explained the man charged
with the responsibility of di
recting the prep tourney
Last y ear the NSAA
cleared $10,000 from the dis
trict and regional tourneys
and about $40,000 from the
state meet. Therefore, the
XSAA netted approximately
$50,000 from these three
weeks of post-season high
school basketball contests.
. Where does this money
go? The money goes to pay
the XSAA't operational ex
penses and also finances the
organization's other athlet
ics and activities. In addi
tion to these uses, the re
maining money is put into
a building fund, Thompson
"A few years ago we de
cided to attempt to build
up a 'nest egg' so that we
could operate at least one
year without a cent of in
come," he commented-
Today, the NSAA's origi
nal $40,000 goal has been
topped and its "nest egg"
fund now stands at $70,000.
SINA's Prout Uncovered

plot may cause lessened enthusiasm in
SINA. But for its followers Prout
(Kenry-Zuckerman) provided hope say
ing that be plans to "look into" the Las
sie problem, and to find out why Pluto
is naked while Mickey Mouse is clothed.
"The least we can do," be said, "is
use camera shots which aren't reveal
ing." Another indication of tte possible
continued existance of SINA was given
by Spencer. He was quoted as saying,
"The grave danger of the immediate
problem is people seeking vicarious
thrills by looldng at nude animals. Auto
mobile drivers are constantly getting in
to wrecks because they find themselves
diverted by the sight of a naked cow or
bull grazing right beside the highway.
"For that reason we have declared
the New Jersey Turnpike a moral dis
aster area. We feel that people should
no more take children to a zoo than to
a burlesque show."
And the SLNA press organs continue
operate. Yesterday G. Clifford Prout
tsued a strong warning to all SQfiM
Tjemberi of SINA that they would be
immediately dismissed with dishonor if

These plans, in order of
preference, will go to a facul
ty subcommittee, then to the
faculty committee in charge
of the school claendar. The
following suggested changes
will go with each of the
plans. , (
The only motion made to
change Plan C was to rec
ommend two-hour examina
tions instead of three hour
finals. This was defeated be
cause the Council felt the
students should be able to
have three hours in which to
write the test, and the profes
sor should be able to decide
what weight to give the test.
The Council also suggested
changing the maximum num
ber of exams to be given
during the week to two per
class rather than the three.
Linda Lueking explained
that these plans follow the
regulations set up by the
University for the school
All three ' plans have the
required total time of ' 39
weeks from the first day of
General Registration to com
mencement. They include a two-week
Christmas vacation, three
and a half day Thanksgiving
vacation, one week Spring
vacaiton and two half days
for Spring Day and Ivy Day
'This year we're actual
ly trying not to take as
much," Thompson said. He
explained that it was a good
idea for the N'SAA to show a
loss doe to the abundance
of adverse criticism the
group receives for making
too much money.
"But, it's not spent fool
ishly," he cautioned.
Actually, the prep cage
tourneys are the only
money -makers for the
NSAA, an organization
which oversees interschool
competition in all athletics
and practically all other
With the exception of foot
ball, the NSAA operates
state championships in
baseball, golf, gymnastics,
swimming, tennis, . wrestl
ing, cross-country, track
and basketball.
The biggest loser, speak
ing dollar and cents terms,
is the district and state
track tourneys, which cost
the NSAA $10,000 to operate
in 1962.
There is no profit derived
from any of the sports be
sides basketball, so the in
come from the cage sport
pays for the rest of the
competitive events. The
NSAA must also pay for its
overhead, salaries, office
expenses and supplies to
schools from the basketball
funds, Thompson said.
A sidelight feature which
also illustrates the big
business of the tournaments
is the concessions. The
tain recording that distorts and humili
ates SINA.
He said the record adds insult to
injury by showing a candid photograph
of his horse in boxer shorts on the cov
er. "This is not my horse but must
belong to my neighbor; a devoted mem
ber of SINA, who sometimes roams on
my land near St. Louis. My mar e,
"Wings of Destiny," always wears Ber
muda shorts," be said.
Another feature of recent SINA mail
was a public letter sent to Miss Judi
Lynch, president of SINA; at the Uni
versity of California, who has had diffi
culty getting the organization officially
recognized there.'
She was verbally reminded of her
constitutional rights to buck all unfair
suppression. She was reminded that at
SINA college chapters throughout the
nation have loads of fun singing the
SLNA marching song, reciting the SLNA
poem, reading the latest SLNA newslet
ter and debating SINA issues.
University students will know tomor
row whether they will be able to par
take of this joy when RAM officially
announces what it plans for Prout at
(these latter two applying
only to undergraduates.)
Fifteen weeks of classroom
instruction in each semester
exclusive of final exams are
also included in the plans.
By action of the Senate,
April 10, 1956, final exam per
iods are to be eight days in
length, starting on Monday
and ending on Tuesday of the
following week. This was par
tially rescinded by action of
the Senate on May 12, 1959
which provided for a free
reading day on the Monday
preceding the final exam per
iod, although the length was
to remain the same.
In the proposed calendars
Commencement accords to
the Senate action of April 10,
1956, that it shall not be held
earlier than the second day
following the end of exam
The plans also move the
deadline for dropping courses
to the end of the eighth week
instead of the end of the
twelfth week.
Concerning the whole school
schedule, the Student Council
moved "that Easter vacation
run from the Saturday noon
before Easter Sunday to 8
a.m. on the second Monday
following Easter.
The . Council also passed a
motion that the whole calen

The rest of the sale com

Last year's state tourney
was the biggest concession
sales in the Coliseum. It
also showed the largest
gate receipts total and
greatest profit to the NSAA.
The post season prep
tournaments as a whole
had bigger total gate re
ceipts, were seen by more
people, and earned a great
er income than ever before.
This represents a busi
ness which is on the up
swingit's attracting more
people and making a bigger
profit yearly. Thompson
anticipates just as big, if
not a bigger, tournament

TASTE? Let the big red bull's-eye on the Lucky Strike pack be your target. It's a
sign of fine-tobacco taste you'll want to settle down and stay with. And the sign
of the most popular regular-size cigarette among college students, to boot!

The Woodrow Wilson Fel
lowship Foundation grants
the coveted awards to en
courage college graduates to
enter careers in teaching.
Although the fellowships
cover only the first year of
graduate study, the founda
tion helps graduate schools
in their support of students
after one year by granting
additional funds to each
school where a Fellow is en
rolled. The names of the honora
ble mention students are
made known to other agen
cies awarding fellowships so
that many of them may re
ceive alternate awards for
graduate study.

Kitty Climbs Pole
in Dog, Cat Spat
Yesterday Morn
Near 8 a.m. yesterday
morning, Major, a big browu
boxer dog, chased a little
black kitty up a telephone
The cat didn't have the
sense to stop when it was
out of Major's reach, but in
stead, climbed to the very
top of the 45 foot pole.
One of the many students
who saw the dog-cat stand
off during the day decided
to try to coax the cat down
from his perch.
He acquired a ladder and
during his efforts, only suc

twelve feet closer to the ob
ject of his attentions.
An unidentified student, on
seeing this apparent two-against-one
contest was
aroused to indignation, and
called the humane society.
The time was now about
1:30 p.m., and the cat had

of his ascent, the dorm moth

of prayer, whether for the
man, who is adept at climb
ing poles, or for the fright

Contact was made with the
feeble and frozen feline at
1:35 p.m. This contact did not
last very long, however, and
it was a good thing that the
lineman had put on protec
