i - m SI T VOLUME 27 BUFFALO. N. Y., MONDAY, APRIL 7, 1947 NUMBER 22 MAY QUEEN RULES ANNOUNCED Blue Masquers Rehearsing For April Production “The Flies’** To Be Presented For Second Time in America On April 18th The Blue Masquers have been working early and late for the past few weeks in order to present to the campus the second American performance of \The Flies.” The subject of this play, so unusually called, is taken from the Agamemnon Trilogy by Aeschylus, but by clever manip­ ulation Jean Paul Sartre has worked into his latest hit a philosophy as new as the. atom­ ic bomb, and twice as far reaching. This philosophy is Existentialism, the idea that man is on this earth to live, subject to no power greater than his own freedom of reas­ on. The ideas put forth and the mode of their presenta­ tion reach a power in dramatic expression surpassed only by the great Shakespeare. Every member of the Uni­ versity of Buffalo will have an opportunity to share the ex­ perience of this new produc­ tion on the nights of April 18, 19, and 21 at 8:30 P.M. The price of admission is $1.00, and due to seating capacity limits of Norton Auditorium, only 400 seats are available for each performance.

The response has been great, but there are still several vac- (Continued on Page 4) EDITORIAL TO ALL ORGANIZATIONS ON CAMPUS Many of the organizations on campus have been a bit maladjusted of late over the method by which “BEE Briefs” and “With The Greeks” are compiled and presented. There have also been numerous complaints over news stories of the doings of one group or another which didn’t receive the notice that their sponsors felt they should receive. Since complaints seem to be in order, we are going to do some complaining of our own. First about groups which hand in items for either of the columns whenever they feel like it, which is usually about four on a Tuesday afternoon, we don’t like them too well. The other main group we dislike with a mad Russian fervor is made up of people who rush into the office with a “big story” on some event their group is planning. This “big story” consists of two or three facts hastily scribbled on a sheet of paper and durhped on a desk in the office which some mem'ber of the staff then has to try and beat into a story. Then, on Friday, some member of these two types of student groups invariably rushes up to some member of the staff and starts complaining madly about the way they were treated in the BEE. In order to alleviate the mutual sufferings of both the BEE staff and the groups which desire publicity a new policy is being inaugurated. Beginning tomorrow all material for either of the columns previously mentioned must be submitted to the BEE office by 1 P.M. on Tuesday afternoon. If this material is not in our hands by this time it will not be printed, regard­ less of what group submits it or to whom they submit it. Further, any group desiring, publicity for an event through a news story will be expected to leave word of this fact in the BEE mailbox at the counter not later than the Friday previous to the issue of the BEE in which they want the story to appear. Such communications should be labeled ATTN. NEWS EDITOR. Finally, we must inform all concerned that in matters of story placement we must be the final judge of what shall go where. We do guarantee, however, that in attaching importance to any story the only consideration will be its relative importance to the student body as a whole. Those are the conditions under which material for the BEE will be handled in the future and all student activities are now to consider themselves fully warned. Amidst three - inch thick steaks, members of the foot­ ball and basketball squads and numerous sport notables were guests at the banquet held at Transit Valley . Country Club last Tuesday evening. The high success achieved by both the grid and cage squads was rec­ ognized and new slants upon future University of Buffalo athletic efforts were brought to light. High' spot of the evening found grid mentor ’J a m e s Peelle presenting the Jack Dempsey trophy to Lou Cor­ riere, chosen Buffalo’s “Out­ standing Athlete of 1947” by the student body. Corriere- both upon field and court, has been consistently a high-scorer, team player, and valuable man. In the choice all qualities of an outstanding athlete were ful­ filled by Lock City Lou, name­ ly enthusiasm, cooperation, sportsmanship, ability, and achievement. Blocking back Bill Rudick and cohort of Lou’s on the Publicity For Moving-Up Day Queen Begins Elections To Be Held In West Room of Norton Wednesday, April 30th “For I’m to.be Queen of the May, tra-Ia,” were the joyful words expressed by a rather disheveled - looking character capering up and down the lawn between Foster Hall and Nor­ ton Union—(mad fool that he was — in all that mud too) — after a quick trip to Bitter- man’s. The Moving-Up D a y Committee doesn’t want to be too harsh with this poor un­ enlightened creature, but they feel it’s their duty to inform this misguided soul that only members of the fairer sex may compete for the title of Mov­ ing-Up Day Queen.

Now, in order to familiarize students with what is going to be the procedure, an attempt will be made to place the data on a—(get away from me, bub, 1 told you you weren’t eligible) level the average col­ lege student will comprehend.
