The field is to toe situated to the right of the road between the bus stop and the main buildings. Work was started on the field last fall but winter weather postponed it until spring.

The fire was immediately brought under control and no damage was sustained. G. W. Theil, the men's supervisor for the Centers, who is in charge of the required physical education program on the main campus, plans to supervise the plowing, _leveling, and seeding of the field He will also assist Mr. Demp in marking off the area for the various sports.

Behrend Choral Society Seeks New Members The new semester has irought a new organization -to-_^Behrend Center, "The Back Room Singing-Society of Rec Hall." This group meets any and every afternoon from 2 to 5 in the Recreation Hall. The Society's only interest is to bring more and better music to our center, and so far this move has been very successful, for the chorus's renditions of "Brush Those Tears From Your Eyes" and "Hubba_, Hubba" are a thing of joy to the music lovers' ears. Interest in this new club is growing fast, and the members feel that it may someday even replace the ping pong playing. Right now two of the organization's most loyal backers, Dick Dunn and Jerry Musser, are. out scouting for new talent, for they feel that the group needs a few more voices for added volume before it can compete with professionals such as Fred WariJig. Therefore we urge you all to join in this move to make Behrend the singing center of the universe.

Meet Your Faculty To ~the questionable looks that have been cast at the cute little house behind the barn, we reply, Why, that's the home of Mr. an.I Mrs. Arthur G. Shields." The clea" white, neat, and likeable appearance of it suits the personality of its occupants. We believe that the Shields are one of the most popular couples on the campus. Mr. Shields is getting a reputation for his torturing (i.e. rugged) "Bugology " courses, but we feel quite sure that if it weren't for his cheerful smile and friendly good morning's at 8:20, our classes wouldn't be half as interesting. Through questioning we found out that Mr. Shields is a native of northwestern Pennsylvania; he grew up- in Titusville and graduated from Titusville High . He went on to _sttidy at Slippery Rock College, where he majored in Phys. Ed., and minorid in Science. After graduation he taught Phys., Ed . for two years, and then in 1940 he received his masters degree from Pitt; he then taught iigh school science in...

| BITS OF BOOK By Judith Thomas "Kitty Foyle," Christopher Morley; Philadelphia, New York, Toronto: JJB. Lippincott Company; 340 pp. $2.50. - Kitty Foyle is the thoughtdiary of a Philadelphia girl oi middle class who falls in love with one of the Main Liners. The book takes her from her girlhood to her early thirties. It shows with amazing clarity her life at home, her life in Manitou, her affair with Wyn, her life in New York. More than that, the book gives a good picture of Philadelphia—the closed clique of the Main Line, the satisfaction of the people of every class with what they were given in life, their resignation to their lot. Although Kitty never describes herself or never says, "I am. this," or "I am that," one has an amazingly-good picture of her, physically and spiritually, by the end oi the book. She is common, yes, but there is in her personality a goodness, a loveableness, a grace that endears her from the outset to the reader. Some people would say that she was bad...

To _Pilgrims from ih_® _imsHBigran&s We, the newcomers to this campus, are settling an account that we have recently incurred—the debt of gratitude that we owe those who showed us the ropes. Many of us arrived here in a rather bewildered state, not knowing where to go, when to go there, or what to do when we got there. Through your warm and easy friendship we have come to feel like old hands, although we've been here little more than a week. Aside from your friendship and information we are also grateful to those of you who lent or sold us your used books- These have saved many of us a great amount of time and expense. To those with cars, bless their souls, who pick up hitchhikers, we also give our thanks. Through your cars, trucks, and jalopies we have been able to chalk mileage on. our _Tmisabs that would, in a number of cases, been put on our. feet. X _^ ¦ For _^ all these and other kind'aids, we extend to all students, instructors, office workers, cooks, and anyone wej...

Faullener and Korn of the preceding teams are not to be overlooked .when high scores are mentioned. Mr. Faullener was outstanding with, a 193 while Mr. Korn got a very respectable 176.

The first game pitted Liebau ' s team against 'Gallagher' s m a hard fought battle. The first two periods were a see-saw contest, but Liebau forged ahead in the third period and was out in front 23-14 at the begining of the fourth quarter. A late fourth period rally by Gallagher put them out in front 26-25, but a basket by Falcone in the last few seconds of the game put Liebau ahead to win 27-26. Liebau and Gallagher were high for their respective teams with 16 points each. The second game was a rough and tumble struggle that matched McDannell's team against Pearce. McDannell's team took the lead with the first basket and stayed ahead until the final whistle to win 22-12. Babich had 4 points and Kott had 3 for the losers.

SPORTS • _ • • 91 oL • • • GLANCE The play-offs of the men's singles ping-pong tourney are well underway with the celluloid sphere flying fast and furious. Of the thirty-seven men who participated in the "ladder" tourney the six who were on the top at the finish were picked to play in the best out of three games elimination. These six were: <Jib Brownlie Tom Pearce, Ray Sturglewsky, Ken McDannell, John Falcone, and Bob Gallagher. In the first games Brownlie's whip-like back-hand was too much for Gallagher as Brownlie won: 11-21, 21-14, and 21-15. Sturge and McDannell had three hard fought games, but Sturge's back spin seemed to be the margin of victory. The scores were 23.-19, 17-21, and 21-19. Pearce had not too much trou¬ ble downing Falcone 21-17, and 21-15. With Brownlie drawing the bye in the semi-finals, Sturge and Pearce played one of the best three games series in the tournament. Pearce finall y solved Sturge's cuts to win out 21-19, 19-21, 21-17. This leaves ...
