Campus Radio Station.
In 1947, a joint committee from Clarkson and Potsdam StateáPHarold
E. Marble, Frank A. Record, and Donald McPheeters, and State President Frederick Crumb, Dr.
Wilmer Trauger, and Dr. Helen HosmeráPdecided that tests conducted by Clarkson's electrical
engineering department confirmed that a proposed carrier broadcast system would be
effective in the north country.
The location would be ideal, for Clarkson could provide the technical talent and State
the artistic talents necessary to maintain such a radio station. This station would not operate on
the same principle as an ordinary commercial radio station, but instead would utilize a new
principle: the principle of superimposing a carrier current upon regular power lines. Thus,
reception could be obtained by plugging any ordinary receiver into any wall socket and turning
it on. It would be free of interference from other stations or radio programs, and its
transmissions would be carried only to the limits of the local power circuits.
Ice Carnival.
Because of the popularity of its ice shows on Thursday and Saturday evenings of
Ice Carnival, the Minto Club added a third performance on Sunday afternoon.
Hank Hodge's basketball team won 12 out of 22 games, many of which were against
such teams as Syracuse, Rochester, and Colgate. Their outstanding game was the defeat of the
University of Vermont 59-54. The baseball team built a good record of 11-4, including a five-
game winning streak. A hot and cold hockey team defeated three Canadian teams, McGill 3-2,
St. Patrick's 4-3, and Queens 7-5. They were unable to withstand a determined SLU team which
came to Potsdam and avenged their 14-5 drubbing earlier in the season by a 3-2 victory. The
team ended the season with a 7-7-1 record.
