We are sick and tired of listening m [•» student body moan contiunally about one thin;' or Esther If they have any real complaints lei th:>m | E them. That's what our S.G.A. is for. Who is-- PL representative? You elected him; now see thst 'does a decent job. With sixteen members on the Assembly Corn-iiittee four representatives from each class, vou would ink 's°!'ie s o r t oi a n a s s e m b l y schedule could be •anged. It not only could be, but would be. if the indent body took an active interest in these affairs. [tseeins to us that a repeat performance of the student acuity funmi could be scheduled without too much Bculty for those persons involved. Why should we 1 something drop that had real future and could •sibry ijring about a closer understandnig between indents and faculty? If yea don't like the BEACON why don't you j something about it? Write an article—we will publish it- Maybe you have a longing for some-ing a little more artistic; dig it out if you want to >it in print. We are open to any new ideas but if "n keep* them to yourselves don't blame us for not toting them. We admit we can do better but we :d your cooperation to improve. " What about the clubs we have in school? The ideni. of every chartered club is an S.G.A. member. r don't they show up at the S.G.A. meetings? If don't want to fulfill these obligations why do y accept the office? Is It asking too much for them iTattend a meeting once every two weeks? Aren't E[he club members capable of electing responsible icers? Of course there are always the certain stalwart Sfew who carry the load for the rest of the slackers land they deserve a real hand, but even these few lose liheir interest because of lack of support. If you don't •want these organizations it is a simple matter to do Jaway with them, but if you do want the clubs let's Bake them live as active student enterprises. You complain about the smoking room con-iiiions but you are too lazy to put your butts in the cans. You tore the coverings on the new furniture Hat was put in there for your use—it had to be removed because it was a fire hazard. Who do you feme for that? Why don't you start with yourself? We stand a good chance of losing all smoking privileges we now have because a few of us can't be tethered going to the emoking room to smoke. Guess who will scream the loudest when the privileges us taken away? At the present moment there is within the organ- Etiori of the S.G.A. a committee known as the "gripe tommittee" to carry such complaints as the students say hare to the source where it will do the most good. You have your voice to express your thoughts and if you don't express them you have no one to blame but yourselves. We of the BEACON feel it is about time each aid every student put forth a little effort to attain the things we have been crying for even if it is only i tie form of seeing that our elected representatives do the job they were entrusted with. —TED LANGSTIXE EACON Stats Teachers College, Paterson, N.

Commissioner Replies To Open Letter Mr. Richard B. Worth President, V.E.C. Dear Mr. Worth, This is a reply to your good letter of January 14, 194S. Our Assistant Commissioner, Dr. Robert H. Morrison, is now back with us. My instructions to him upon his return were that the first and most important problem for us to solve is that of taking care of the college jun-iors and seniors mentioned in your letter. He is now busily at work in your interests. We shall keep at the problem until it is solved as well as we can solve it with present equipment and facilities. The purchase of the Hobart Estate is proceeding quite rapid-ly now. . . . The remainder of your letter reminds me of re-ports, newspaper articles, and addresses all emanating from this department. If there is any cause for the conditions which you report in regard to lack of facilities for higher education in New Jersey, you will have to seek elsewhere to find the cause. I agree with you that there is great need for higher education in New Jersey. I am very sympa-thetic to your needs. This De-partment is doing all that it can 1 This hilarious satire of four years at Paterson State, under the direction of Claire Barth and Angela RomaneUi, and written by Helen Potash, promises to be one of the highlights of 1948 here at the college. I It is impossible to enumerate ! hi detail the plot of the two-act revue, but many surprises and many minutes of howling enter-tainment are in store for those who plan to attend. Ticket sales are overwhelming and there are no reserved seats., so it is the duty of every college-conscious student here at State to purchase his or her ticket in advance of the anticipated rush for last-minute seats. Prices are slightly higher for non-students and the student's price is only fifty cents. Skits, songs, dances of all types and other scenes are being re-hearsed so as to insure enjoy-ment on the part of all present. Willard Smith, a "teaching1' Sen-ior, will act as Master of Cere-monies for this comedy. Many of the Seniors who will participate are from Business Education and General Elemen-tary. Irene Perugini and Grace Van Orden will reveal some novel types of dancing; Annette Pezzano and Winifred Kennedy will share the singing honors; Oyn Zakim hss a great parody in store for you; Marie DeRosa and Antoinette Ciara-mella have featured roles as monologuists; and music will be shared by Frank Costa, Phil Fine, and Virginia Praser. _soidiDg iiW0 delegates, Miss Wiegand, President, Eaith C.
