By ROMA LIPSKY
Students headed for the New
York area during vacation will be
faced with the problem of what
to drink instead of water, reports
from that area indicate.
With reservoirs down to only
one-third their normal supply,
the city has begun an extensive
campaign to cut down waste and
excess usage.
* * *
LESS THAN average rainfall,
and heavy use by city dwellers has
caused officials to declare that the
water shortage has reached the
"state of emergency."
In an effort to conserve the
existing supplies, automobile
washing has been banned, and
the flooding ice-skating rinks
has halted.
Landlords who have not re-
paired leaking faucets are being
hauled into court to answer to the
law with possible $5 fines for vi-
olation.

CONSERVATION-MINDED cit-
izens have been organized into
"water warden" units to canvass
households requesting each family
to take measures toward eliminat-
lng water waste and to cut down
their consumption.
But city authorities have declar-
ed that water usage must go down
another 125,000,000 gallons each
day before the housewife will be
able to do a week's washing with
an easy conscience.

Little did Lee Payne, '53, realize
his room, 426 Adams House, West
Quad, would turn into a radio sta-
tion when he entered theUniver-
-ity this semester.
Playing his wireless phonograph
one day, a group of Adams House
members reported hearing his rec-
crds on their third floor radios.
Because these students enjoyed
this music, Payne now lives in a
room crowded with radio equip-
rnent, records and people.
STATION WFFA (Fourth Floor
Adams House) was established on
the assumption "that students de-
sire long periods of uninterrupted
music during study hours instead
of programs interrupted by com-
mercials and long introductions,"
Payne said.
Members of Adams House
agreed with this idea and pur-
chased a microphone and ampli-
fier for the station. Students
loaned their collection of rec-
ords to the rapidly growing sta-
tion.
The small station's facilities
were increased when Payne pur-
chased a transmitter from a sim-
ilar, but extinct station in Allen
Rumsey House.
Anglo Saxon Greeting
Wassail comes from the Anglo
Saxon meaning "be well."

WITH A VOLrN'TlEER taff of
announ ,ers, W F F A broacasts
through the electrical circuit of
Adams Hcuse. The station is on
the air from 8:30 p.m. to 10:30
p.m. with program of classical and
popular records.
Critic sheets are posted on
each floor in order that stu-
dents might request programs.
"In the future we hope to ac-
quire a Frequency Modulation
Tuner and presnt the program",

Service as well as other FM sta
tions which can not be hear i'di

"There is only cne trouble with
the continued expansion of station
WFFA," he remarked, "the more
we expand, the smaller my bed-
room gets."
