During this period, the members of the Jewish faith celebrate Passover on April 19 and 20; members of the Christian faith celebrate Good Friday on April 20 and Easter on April 22. The present calendar policy establishes a ten-week term without holidays except on Thanksgiving Day and the Fourth of July.

Editorially Speaking Unlike most of the editorials you have read, this one is not intended to condemn; rather, it is intendec to report a condition that exists in our school. We dc not believe that this condition is a good one, but we are not going to call it a bad one, either. It concerns the general nature of the student body of this year. We are m erely reporting it . to you because we feel that, if you become aware of it, you will form some of your own opinions on it and perhaps do something about it. During the last term at the Hazleton Campus, e number of programs were presented for the benefit _oi students here. The programs varied in form frorr dances to lectures.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Every democracy is based on free elections. The secret, free ballot is looked upon in every country of the world as the symbol . of liberty. In the United States, the free election is used by nearly every type of organization—from the government of a large corporation to theP. T. A. in the local school. The Highacre's Student Government Association is also based upon free election. It is supposedly democratic. Its elections are free and secret. But what is the use of free elections when the voters are offered only one candidate for a particular office? What element of choice is there? How can one exercise his power over the government when, vote or not, the one candidate will be elected? The fault for this does not lie with S.G._A., although perhaps more publicity would .have attracted other candidates. It is the students, though, who should be ashamed -of -this-' past, election. Don't ¦ they " • have .enough interest in their school to play ap art in it...

BELLES-LETTRES! By CARMELA SACCO A feeling of esprit de corps, commonly defined as group togetherness, is one of the many privileges shared by members of Penn State's Belles-Lettres Society. The members are presently combining their efforts under the chairmanship of Richard Strunk to print a booklet-type history of the Hazleton Campus. Various faculty members have been approached for any and all bits of information which will give students a veritable picture of the past happenings at their campus. It has been quite rewarding and indeed enlightening for our student interviewers to converse with professors, many of whom they might otherwise never have become acquainted with. The club project caused some real memory taxing and succeeded in uprooting
