Christmas Customs Many of our Christmas customs are derived from old European customs, some of which originated before the. birth of Christ. Some are known to us only through books, but others have been passed down through the ages to us. One of these that has endured is the custom of using evergreens as Christmas decorations. The Christmas tree first had its start in Germany when Martin Luther put candles on the tree to represent the stars on Christmas' Eve. Mistletoe, a ' northern peoples custom, was believed to hold magic powers, and was hung over doorways as a charm. Holly too, was regarded in this manner. Carol singing, always universal, exists in all countries, and probably began in the churches. Later they were sung by people going from house to house. The manger scene, in many lands is the heart of the Christmas celebration, and is said to have begun when St. Francis, in 1224, arranged a stable in a village church near Assisi, with real people as actors. Out door cel...

In the early part of December the big, old pine in the center of the circle is transformed into a glitter of colored lights which shine out into the night, each ray giving glow to every showflake W touches. Soon after the decorating of the tree, the students prepare for the "Hanging of the Greens." This tradition consists of hanging wreaths of green on the grave of Mr. Behrend and his son. After these ceremonies the students enjoy caroling, making the rounds of the faculty houses on campus, and then usually hiking up and down Station Road to serenade Mr. Gallagher and his family, an$ then on to Mr. and Mrs. Shields homes, for they are all a part -at our campus, also.

AROUND THE FIREPLUG.... by Chenne (Canine's Gift to Manknid) I told you I'd return, just like MacArthur and here I am. This hike back to Behrend is no "revival," but worth all my martyrdom. Just wait till you see what I've dug up for all of you poor humans this time! I was taking a little afternoon stroll the other day, and T just happened to peek through the window of an empty classroom, and there- was Laskowski's true blue Yochim with someone who looked like B-i-t-z-e-r-. Teh, tch. I suppose when Jim reads this, he'll use the same language he does in bowling when he misses a spare. It seems that Sue Gill is the latest to try to avoid Clutching Bill Chr ist's clutches. Gosh, I'm dog-gone cruel for picking on Mr. Christ again, but can I help it if he keeps getting underfoot? Things must really be hopping in Comp classes these days to make D.G.T. so surly. Maybe the man just lost the curlers with which he puts up his hair each night. Speaking of classes, I slipped into the cl...

Thoughts for Home Today we'll leave Behrend for a well deserved rest. A vacation at home and all it implies. Home cooking, no classes, and a comfortable place to sit and relax. But how about when we come back to school? If we had some stuffdd chairs in the student lounge it would go a long way toward bringing all the comforts of home to our other home. It would give us a place to sit and talk; and also make the rec hall a more useful and important place. So while you're flopping happily at home,, give a little thought to the rest of the year. Look in the attic, the cellar, or in the hay mow for an old sofa or chair that's not doing anything; then contact Mr. Ferguson or another member of the faculty and we'll arrange to bring it out here.

Are You Guilty? Are ou one of "those"? On every campus are a few students who seem to feel that the little things don't count, or that anything which requires only several minutes of thoughtfulness cannot be considered a responsibility. Among the chief offenders are students who neglect to return books to the library, even though they may have been finished with them for days. If you have been repeatedly guilty of keeping books longer than the specified time, or forgetting to pay the fines on overdue books, please try to correct the situation. The demands made by both the Behrend Library and the Erie County Library are far from outrageous. Only a basic consideration for others is necessary to observe the rules, and, incidentally, to save yourself some money. Remember—someone else may need that "old green book" you seem to have left "lying around the car somewhere."

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor: For ten long weeks we have patiently awaited the advent of a constitution setting up the structure of our student government. The student council, in this time, has neither written a constitution nor taken the proper steps necessary in democratic government for the writing or the revision of the existing constitution. To our knowledge, the old constitution has never been repealed by a vote of the student body, nor has authority for the framing of a revised or new one been granted by the student body. Council had its opportunity, and ten weeks have flown by; it is now up to you, the student, from whom all powers of democratic government are derived, to take steps to remedy the situation which exists. This can be done in two simple acts: 1. Students must read the old constitution and vote to amend, revise ^ or rewrite it. 2. The student body must delegate authority to some qualified group to write the necessary modifications. These changes shoul...

trompy's Cuties The Time—Thursday, 3:20 p. m. The Place—Behrend Center Rec Hall My Assignment—Procure the information on a certain Phys. Ed. class. My name is Schlimeal. I work the Center beat. It was 3:20 p. m. when I happened on a Phys. Ed. class vigorously performing exercises. I ambled over to the instructor who was doing push-ups and asked, "Are you the Phys. Ed. instructor?" "One, two, one, two, that's about the size of it," she retorted. I was getting tired just watching her. "Do you think exercising so much is good?" I questioned. Now the class was doing jump-ups, as was the instructor. She nodded and between jump-ups she explained, "This course in Phys. Ed. teaches the girls the value of exercises. Exercising makes them trim and fit." "What you're trying to say, is that exercises are necessary for modern day living, is that right?" I asked. Mrs. Cornstock replied, "Yes, what I'm trying to say is that exercises are valuable,." With a slight drawl, I murmured, "I just...

STRIKES and SPARES Uc^ By Jack Rimp PO-UM I ROSE FROM THE RANKS OF DEEP DESPAIR, I GOT A STRIKE, AND THEN A SPARE. BUT ALAS, AGAIN MY GRIEF WAS UTTER, THE NEXT BALL I THREW, WENT IN THE GUTTER! When Chuck Mettlach saw the scores of one of the games, he wailed, "Gosh, Uncle Dave, send in the first string!" Don't tell me that isn't what we have now! Syb Shay is death on difficult splits. This time, we saw her pick off a 7-9 split with eagle-eye proficiency. Don Kazmaier came up with a Toort one. One ball he threw, went :n the gutter. (Much to his disgust, we imagine.) But when it sot to the pins, it decided to join the ranks of the accepted, hopped out, and knocked over two pins. That's really hooking the ball. Renee Mattison looked like the sergeant in charge of a squad of wooden heads when she lined ur the 7-8-9 pins. Let's see is that e equals bh, or could it be cos plus 18 tan equals O? Of course, ya lo creo! I'm not well at all. "Kelly" Kaliszewski received a citation f...

Sports coops The tumbing mats in Erie Hall are getting quite a workout lately. After the last gym class there were quite a few cripples limping around. Bob Gomall claims his shoulder fell off on his last attempt at a forward roll, while Ron Cionco complains that his neck is slightly loose at the joints. Jack Rimp seems to have trouble standing on his head. No wonder they use a double mat! As this is written, the basketball team has three games under its belt, and is currently sporting a 2 and 2 record. After topping the Alumni, 27-22, they lost to Altoona, 54-43, and then came back to beat the Edinboro Jay Vees in the final minute of play. The score of that game was 44-42 After the first three games, the high scorers are Mike Nagel, with 23 points; Joe Benacci, with 21; Bus Haney, 18; and Whitey Moore, 15. In intramural basketball, the Celtics, captained by Bob Brandt, are currently riding first place. It looks as though they're the team to beat. Of course, on the other hand...
