Round The Town Cheerleaders Hold Practice Sessions By Madge MeKee "Icicle Point" (better known as Behrend Center) really is prepared for Christmas. Its tall evergreens, holly bushes with bright red berries, and bushels of snow would make perfect subjects for any Christmas card (including those of the Photo Club). But winter has its bad points too. For verification, why not ask some of the many B. C'ers who fcave been pelted with snowballs under the leadership of Gibby, Raleigh, and Chief. Calvin Caldwell and Leo Burlingame, who commute from Cambridge Springs and Corry, respectively, are hoping they receive ice skates for their cars on Christmas morning. They feel it would be more fun sliding around on these than on just plain tires. Cars, in general, just don't seem to run too well in "Brr" weather. Earle Dhus' Dodge (which really Is a fine car) refused to budge one Tuesday after botany lab. In order to get it out to the Gospel Hill Garage, he had to utilize the combined f...

FEATURING THE MITRONOVASES By Beverly Smith I'm sure that everyone on the Behrend Center campus knows, or has heard ofFred and Walter Mitronovasthough there may be some who don't know them well. So here's the low down. Walter and Fred were both born in Lithuania; Walter is the oldest by two years. They went through the second grade in a school where Eussian was spoken from . second through eighth grade. The boys also attended a school where they spoke Lithuanian. Though they lived in Germany during the war, the only German they learned was from their neighbors' conversations. The Mitronovases came to th€ United States by ship via Venezuela and New Orleans, and then landed at New York City on April 12, 1950. Both Walter and Fred commented on the. nice weather they had on the trip over to the States, and on the flying fish they saw while on the Caribbean Sea From New York City they went to Indiana (the state, that Is) where they lived on a farm for four months. They moved to E...

By Sylvia _Konkle Before Thanksgiving vacation began, the girls got the idea to change their rooms; it seems they were tired of the same old drab rooms. Everyone was well pleased with the results except Mrs. Ring. Becky Wilson has been having a hard time since the day she went home on the bus for vacation. Becky just about missed her bus. In fact, the bus driver drove around the block to pick her up. Recently, Mr. Kochel asked Becky if she had lost something, as he handed her a pair of something white that was frozen stiff. Did Becky lose something?! Dorm Chatter Why does Sue Hansen, Linda Hamer, and Marilyn Pringle play "bride" at 2:00 A.M.? Could it be that they are looking forward to the future? Just to mention some fun that goes on in the dorm: the girls are constantly having battles; physical, water, and the latest, . . . snow. It really is fun to sit in bed and throw snowballs across the room. Some of the dorm girls have started to decorate for Christmas already. Harriet...

! Clinically. Speaking By Patty Peck ! v I hear tell that everyone had a very nice vacation with lots of chicken and turkey and all the trimmings. Four of our eight boys went hunting, with luck running against them. There was a lot of snow and all the bucks hid. Don went down in Venango County to hunt and, although his luck wasn't with him, never let it be said that Don is a quitter. He soon returned and got his buck this time. Bob was lucky and saw 50 to 70 doe (so he says) in Jefferson County and Kane. He gave up, though, and came back to school on Tuesday. Tom hunted deer in 18 inches of snow at Tidioute, Penna, and slid back to B. C. on Wednesday night. Art and his brother went hunting too, although not for deer. They went duck hunting in Cranesville, Penna. Paul and Mike both worked hard during their vacation, while Melvin and George took it easy: Melvin went to two dances. Shirley and her family had a very, unusual Thanksgiving dinner. They ate in smorgasbord style at "A L...

A LITTLE BIT OF HUMOR A fanfare of trumpets ... a roll of drums ... an expectant hush falls over the . audience . - . and William R. Weed marches triumphantly into class to begin another of his famous extravaganzas. Willie has combed his hair over his eyes, trying to portray his character of the day, a mad musician; and when he plays the first notes on his trumpet, there is no doubt that he has succeeded in his role. Who else could turn a review of the Complete Opera Book into such a radical production? Who, indeed, but the same Willie Weed who, in the character of a mad politician, turned an hour lecture on Income Taxes into a one-man vaudeville show. But then, this is not a new experience for Willie. The slightest opportunity to speak Is sure to bring forth from his vast imagination a performance worthy of theatrical production. Willie acts as his own technician, props man, and orchestra. Where humor is concerned, he overlooks no detail; not a chance for a chuckle escapes ...

Tribute to Mr. Turnbull under Consideration By Raleigh Chesley During January Behrend Center suffered a great loss. This was the death of the beloved Professor Thomas Turnbull. Mr. Turnbun passed from Behrend leaving many unseen advances through his advisorship and also through his great knowledge of history ; Since his death Behrend has wanted to provide the future students of the Center with some sort of remembrance of one of the great professors around which this campus was built. The old saying goes, "Give •credit where credit is due," and therefore we would like to give credit to Jerry Buzza who brought up the idea of purchasing a plaque along with a photograph which would be preserved in the Memorial Room. This idea was presented to the Student Council and was passed with full approv¬ al. The plaque will be purchased as soon as possible. The staff would also like to give well-deserved credit to Dick Mytinger who suggested naming the classroom building "Turnbull Hall." ...

Religious Lecture Series Begins By Bob Pierce Oh Monday, March 5, the first of a series of religious lectures took place in Erie Hall when the student body was addressed by Rabbi Randall Palk. His talk centered around the background of the Jewish religion and its development through the centuries. The meeting was the work of the student council, with Connie Taylor serving as chairman of the committee. Under present plans the committee will hold meetings every two weeks which will be conducted by the various religious leaders in the Erie area. The purpose will be to inform the student of the various faiths represented in our city and to familiarize him with some of the heritage shared by these groups. March 20, the program calls for an address by Roger Sharpe of the First Baptist Church of Erie; and on the April 5, an address on Catholicism by Father Peterson of Gannon College. In order that every student will have an opportunity to attend the sessions, classes will be dismis...

Let's Make Use of It After the Student Council budget meeting several weeks ago, there was some discussion about activity fees. The place was the reception room of the dorm and the people concerned were several Council membersthe Dorm Council President, and Mrs. Longnecker, the housemother. It seemed as if the girls had a desire for some pizza, but a few had not received any funds from home and no one , else had enough to -lend to these poverty-stricken girls. The conversation led to the picnic the dorm girls have in May. How were they going to ray for that? Someone suggested dues. Another mentioned the activity fee that each student pays before beginning a new semester. A third member of the Student Council said that the activity fees had all been designated for use by the many different organizations at Behrend. The dorm girls then wanted to know where their activity fee was going and why they couldn't have it to spend for a picnic. For all of you who failed to look at the b...

Featuring Dr. Smith By Madge McKee In this, the first issue of the spring semester, the Nittany Cub would like to welcome a remarkable woman to the faculty of Behrend Center. She is Dr. Elizabeth Smith, instructor of botany and zoology. Dr. Smith previously taught at the University of Missouri and at Kent State University. (She earned her Ph. D. degree in Zoology at the University of Missouri.) Although these schools are much larger in comparison to Behrend, Dr. Smitbr Is very impressed by the pleasant atmosphere and friendly, co-operative people she has found here. In fact she says she likes everything about Behrend but the weather . . . and who can blame her for that? Although she has "legitimate" hobbies (as she calls them ) of swimming and gardening, Dr Smith's prize hobby is doing research on bats. Her interest of bats stemmed from her experiments on twinning (multiple births of several species of animals). Bats are excellent experimental animals for this, because they ...
