Council To Sponsor Student Work Day The Student Council has proposed a Work Day on the Behrend Center campus for.the purpose of making improvements and repairs on the school grounds for the welfare of the student body. The Work Day is being held Tuesday, March 30, or, in case of rain or snow, on Tuesday. April 6, All students will participate in the "cleaning-up" activities, and faculty advisors will take attendance. The Student Council also suggested that classes be dropped in favor of the Work Day.

Bud Schultz, president of Student Council, says that tentatively some of the jobs will include fixing the tennis courts, finishing and decorating the student lounge, cleaning out the swimming pool, and, in general, improving school buildings and grounds.

Explanation Given - Of Honor System By Eileen Lardo Some controversy has come up lately as to how an Honor System would fit in at Behrend Center. First of all, do you know what an honor system is and how it works? An Honor System would mean that each of us would show respectful regard to a set of coordinated ' doctrines. B e h avior during tests would figure as a major determinent. Other factors include: the borrowing and signing out of books from .the Behrend Library, relying upon male students to leave the dormitory by 9:00, having respect for other people's property in the locker rooms, cafeteria and office. The Honor System exists not in the imagination of a few zealous committees, but in the minds of all whom it affects. - State college has not presented such a system to its students. Various colleges as Princeton and West Point use honor systems very , effectively. At We~t . Point, par- [ ticularly, the system is run on a j strict honor basis; the following is in conde...

MEET YOUR FACULTY Mr. Walter Stewart, Behrend's assistant administrative head, is perhaps best known to the student body for his photographic ability, though that is merely one of his many varied interests. Among his other activities are swimming, golfing, hunting, or fishing. Mr. Stewart, a native of Butler, who has been at Behrend for slightly over a year, was formerly employed in Erie by the Erie Dry Goods Company, as a floor manager, and later, as agent for the Allstate Insurance Company. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration, and a Master's degree in Retailing, both from the "University of Pitt. Following Army basic in 1943, Mr. Stewart attended Fire Control School at Camp Davis, North Carolina. He remained at Camp Davis as an instructor in remote control: systems, later transferring to the 549th AAA, which was shipped to the European theater of operations. While overseas, he instructed in remote control in the field. The Legion of Merit was awa...

Don't Read This Webster's unabridged dictionary defines the word— illiterate—as, "unable to read." Therefore, Behrend Center students are illiterate! This is not heresy, nor is it idle gossip; it is a careful and considered opinion. In our library, there are two signs, placed in prominent positions, with letters ranging from one to three inches high. They make one simple request; easy to understand and easier to grant—SILENCE! Obviously, any person mature enough to attend college, is also mature enough to observe and respect any such notice; but this student body has not done so. With these facts in view, there is only one explanation. Repeat, Behrend Center students are illiterate. The library was and is intended as a place to study and do research; perhaps to correct illiteracy. Surprisingly enough, some people still attempt to put this institution to its original purpose. Thus far, they have been prevented in their aim by people who still live by the philosophy, "Where igno...

BEHREND CENTER PRESENTS... Mike Sedlak, a fine young man with flashing eyes and a ready grin, is our Student Personality of this issue. Mike was born on August 31, 1934, in Springcreek, Pa. He is a graduate of Youngsville High School, where football was his medium for -the first three years. He is especially interested in bowling, football, and baseball. At Youngsville High, he was a member of the Sportsmen's Club. When asked what his favorite food was, he sighed and said, "A big steak, smothered with onions!" Mike was a victim of the dreaded polio, and spent six months (Sept. '51 to Mar. '52) in the Polyclinic in- Harrisburg. After general treatment, Mike was left with a slight limp, a very lucky young man. Mike's brother, Martin, entered Penn State as a Freshman under the G. I.

What Is The Delay? It is observed that the Behrend Center Administration is burdened with too many responsibilities that should be taken care of by the Pennsylvania State University, or else forgotten and not brought out into open discussion. It was suggested a long time ago that these items were necessary, at least, if not now, then in the future for the improvement of the campus. Once, these suggestions were constructive plans, but by the length of time which has elapsed since their first initiation, we can assume that, perhaps, they were just the empty promises and dreams of a well-meaning administration. The walks around the gym and the approaches to the classroom building are still devoid of any scenic attributes, and do not add any credit to the beautiful landscape of Behrend Center. A constant source of irritation during the most drastic types of weather is the parking lot. How long will the inconveniences of mud-holes, slush, and dust continue to be a part of our lives...

AROUND THE FIREPLUG.... By Chenane Believe me, I had a hard time digging up the dirt for this week's column. Speaking of people, I wouldn't take to a dog-fight, it's a shame Hugh Francis is so wrapped up in himself. He makes a mighty small package. While ambling through Wesleyville last week I got a dog's eye view of Harley Cloud and Tom Graczyk turning on the charm for some naive high school girls. The blonde one was an O. K. chick, Harley, but how can you desert the gorgeous girls at B. C? (It must be that you haven't seen them in those relics from the dark ages, sometimes known as "kneesocks," yet.) And could that have been Gordon Beales that Puff saw stealing potato chips in Sebastian's? Tsk, tsk, tsk. On my way to Campbell's office to chase rats through the old money, I spied "Dead Eye" Dick Kuneman looking like a (pardon the expression) Dog-eared, pocket book edition of "I, the Jury" in that crazy chapeau. It seems I'm not welcome in the dorm anymore . . . the girls are ...

Office Chatter By Jody Borkowski The card-playing epidemic has added four new victims as four certain people in the Administration Office are observed playing Pinochle during their lunch hour. But the welcomed spring weather might put an end to that. Mrs. Stewart who joined us in the coldest season of the year will be able to take walks and observe for the first time the fresh, springtime beauty of Behrend Center. Speaking of spring, Mrs. Adam toured her flower garden last week during the warm lull in this unpredictable winter looking for that crocus. No sign yet, but we'll keep you posted. A thrilling event for our future bride, Joanne Rys, was a bridal shower sponsored by her mother and the mother of the future groom at the Lakeview on February 25th. This gala affair was attended by 150 enthusisastic and well-wishing people. A three-man combo furnished the music and the smiling Joanne and Frank received many gifts from the guests as tokens of future happiness. Ah, yes! Win...

Off and On the Campus Man your battle stations! Civil War seems to have broken out in the dormitory during the past week. Nancy Elms was chief target of Jack Geiger, Ray Metz, and Joe Schmitt. She faced the firing squad in the dining room. They stood her up against the wall and proceeded to hurl cake and perfume at her with deadly aim. Upstairs a prisoner of war, Mary Ann Jackson, stood tied to a bed post while her guards, Renee Mattason and the Edelman twins paced back and forth through the rubble of the battle. The building rocked with the impact of Kay Powell's screams as she drowned in the showers. Mary Ann (who had beenreleased on bail—she had a class) and the Edelmans shook hands with smug grins of satisfaction (That'll teach her to sleep in a combat zone.) Are you pinned? It seems that Behrend has a new club—The WPPHC. Thek symbol is a silver safety pin. Eileen Lardo, Whiz bang Benec, and Lynn Montague are about to pin two charter members. New members are welcomed Con...

&t*Ue*Mtf, Sfre*6u By Sue Williams Swish! What happened? A whole semester behind us, and we find ourselves well into a new one. Although we deeply regretted having to say goodbye to Ruth Myers and Lou Simmers, we were very happy to welcome two new-comers : Jo Ann Cianf lone of Erie, and Norma Laird of Sharon. The "Heart of My Heart" dance is past history now, but we would like to thank all those who helped make it possible. Election of new officers, and the ratification of a constitution for the Speech Improvement Club, took place at a special club meeting on Thursday, February 25. The new officers are: president, Dick Watt; vice-president, Pete McGaf fic; secretary, Sue Gill; and treasurer, Ruth Hovis. The speech clinic boys have some really "hot" card games. Latest reports reveal that Pete McGaffic is usually the boy who holds the upper hand during these sessions. Another popular "indoor sport" is chess. Don Smith and Duane Brooks, with a little coaching from our e...

Questionnaire On Study Habits As a follow-up on the "How To Study And Get Results" article that was printed in the last issue of the Cub, the staff is now offering a questionnaire that can be used to rate your studying habits. If all the questions are answered in the affirmative, then you have developed proper study habits. If negative answers are given, then you may be able to find your faults and correct them. Do you have a satisfactory place to work, with materials in convenient order and with a daily lesson plan available? Do you frequently find long study periods valuable? Do you measure your reading skill often and know in what ways you are strongest and in what ways you are weakest and try to improve your weak points? Do you understand charts and tables and other reference material in your reading? Do you have an attitude of immediate attention at the beginning of a lecture, and is this attention kept regularly throughout the lecture? Do you ask questions of yourself ...

Compy's Cuties Call it release from tension or whatever you will, but the gals in Phys. Ed. 12 have suddenly developed a purple passion for more "youthful" recreation. Evidence—Janie Bastow's exciting new pastime, which is accompanied by the following gem: "You must pass the shoe From me to you, to you; You must pass the shoe And do just as I do." Frannie Nielsen kept cheating—She was passing TWO shoes around the circle—so Eleanor, Noreen, Dot and Sandy put their feet down, took their shoes, and started a game of their own in one of Erie Hall's dark corners. We have only one question—who belongs to the size 9 blue suede??? Seen the gay, chinese-red "pinnies" the girls have been zooming around the basketball court in? Want to know where we got them from? Okay, you asked for it . . . 1. P. S. U. sent up the pinnies, complete with long floppy belts and no sleeves. 2. The Griffin Mfg. Co. "contributed' several sheets of "borrowed" stencil paper. 3.

Sp'ortscope By Bill Maeder With the aid of Coach Miller, a compact calendar of sports has been compiled for the information of the sports-minded students at Behrend. With the advent of warm weather, there will be new sports available. Badminton, foul shooting, and table tennis tournaments, are slated for the first, second, and third weeks of March. There will be awards for the champs in all three activities. The intramural tennis matches will be starting in May. The tennis team will start practicing in March with a few indoor games before moving outside. This intercollegiate tennis team has a tense schedule ahead of them. They are slated to play Edinboro State Teachers College, Allegheny, and others. By the way, Allegheny has girls on their team, and they also beat Behrend last year. We certainly want to change that! tmMtii&iGmwm& j^*ii^<mm&**B s' All those interested in ,golf should keep in mind that turf tournaments start in April for the int...

0 Spring! 0 Nuts Sweet day, so cool, so calm, so bright," as George Herbert says, came to Behrend Center last week. Oliver Goldsmith states it much better with, "Where smiling spring it's earliest visit paid." Nevertheless, last Friday was the most beautiful February day I can remember for a long time. Dr. Miller seemed to- think so too, because when we entered the gym for phys. ed., he said, in his most sonorous tones, "Today we jog the Nature Trail." Now, I am not averse to jogging, but after about five minutes my legs rebel at lugging my very well packed two hundred pounds. But since I am not a complainer, (Ahem), I set out with some thirty other "joggers" thoroughly convinced that the object of this foolishness was nothing less than pneumonia . My colleagues seemed set on breaking all speed records, so eventually, "I wandered lonely as a cloud." Afraid they would send out the bloodhounds to search for my torn and twisted body at the bottom of the gorge, I sloshed on, obl...
