EDITORIAL: Don’t Betray Cornell Cinema, Again

Last week, Cornell Cinema was unable to secure the number of votes needed from the Student Assembly to raise the amount of byline funding the organizations receives each year. The vote follows a recommendation from the Student Assembly Appropriations Committee that urged the S.A. not increase the Cinema’s funding. While the committee suggested that Cornell Cinema further reduce its costs, additional cuts adversely affect the programming and benefits the organization provides for the campus community. We urge the members of the S.A. to reconsider their decisions to ensure the vitality of Cornell Cinema for future Cornellians. In its recommendation, the Appropriations Committee argued that Cornell Cinema should not be granted an additional $1.40 per student increase, raising its byline funding amount from its current $10.60 to $12 per student.

‘Red Out’ Set to Hit East Hill on Saturday

The field hockey, football, men’s soccer and women’s soccer teams are all hosting Princeton on Saturday, and the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) is taking advantage of the opportunity to unite the Cornell campus.
If all goes according to plan, the stands will be filled with red-shirted Cornell fans from 12 p.m., when field hockey’s match starts on Marsha Dodson Field, to 9 p.m., when the women’s soccer team’s game should end at Berman Field.
SAAC designed red t-shirts for fans to wear to Saturday’s sporting marathon — which the committee is calling the “Red Out.”
