Girls ' Room Lay-out Gets Homey Touch In answer to the curious looks of a few of the males at the door of the Girls' Room, here is a description of it. Painted in a combination of white and green, this bright little den is furnished for the comfort of the girls with furniture which they donated. Included in the donations are two newly upholstered easy chairs, presents of Misses Somers and Newell; a lounge draped with a chintz cover, an addition by Miss Yotter; an end table with book ends and a reading table with a black pottery based lamp. A sink, two cupboards containing dishes and glassware, and two full length mirrors give a homey touch to the room. The energy and time spent toy the girls under the supervision of Miss Yotter have added to the appreciation of the comfort which this room affords them.

Ping-Pong Team Wins First League Match Nobody can doubt now that the Hazleton Center has a wealth of ping pong players. A few weeks ago Tony Piccola, ace ping-pongist, got together a few of the Center players and, without any practice, went down to the _Y.M.C.A. to defeat the "Y" ping pong team. The Center team took five out of seven single matches. The winners were: Barnes, Piccola, Novotnie, Blyler, and Newell. In the doubles the Center team took two out of three games. Piccola and Blyler teamed up to trounce the "Y" stars, Woodring and Rossman. Barnes and Organist won the second doubles match, but Tarleton and Novotnie lost out in the third match. . Captain Piccola's men are members of the Y.M.C.A. Ping Pong League. This league is .composed of twelve teams in Hazleton..

McGEEHANITES DROP CONTEST TO McCANN'S _, Again our basketeers were frowned upon by Lady Victory. This time it was McCann's that did the trick. Charlie; McGeehan and the boys at half time were passing and shooting like veterans, piling up a 20-14 lead. But, alas and alack, the McCann's cagers opened up in the third period, cut down our lead, and then developed one of their own. So eventually we lost our third hopeless game for this season. If this keeps up, our team will have to play with its fingers crossed. The lay-off during the Christmas holidays, however, ought to give Coach McGeehan an ample opportunity to smooth out the rough edges and prepare the Center quintet for its first conquest in January.

STUDENTS PARTICIPATE IN 4 CLUB ACTIVITIES [Continued from page 3 J Cosmopolitan Club. The idea oi' a Cosmopolitan Club was suggested by Mr. Janssen, and the club's activities are guided by him. This club has as its purpose the furtherance of knowledge and understanding of other nations, its end being accomplished by a series of meetings each one of which deals with a different country. Each member represents a nation, usually the the nation from which his ancestors come. The officers of the club are: President, Josephine Zogby; Vice-President, Alice Marie McGrory; and Secretary, Margaret Lucash. At the first meeting, Mr. Janssen discussed and compared modes of travel in Germany. His interesting talk made travel in Germany sound very exciting, especially travel in one of the portable, collapsible boats whose use is very wide-spread in Germany. The second meeting was devoted to the country oi Syria. Josephine Zogby related an ancient and very interesting legend about an ideal,...

I OUR JANITOR I Probably the more observant members of our students have noticed that Mr. Walters, our janitor, is a most unusual personage; those who haven't are missing an interesting human contact. At the beginning of the year, for example, Mr. Walters, while talking to a group of students, stated that he enjoyed the social atmosphere which the Center had brought. This is a rather philosophical statement to come from one who works with coal and iron. When Mr. Walters was a boy, education was unimportant as compared to the present day emphasis; he didn't finish high school. While working, however, he studied the classics, arithmetic, etc. at night. It was this effort which lifted him to a succession of responsible positions in the mining industry around Hazleton. In addition to these positions, he has been in the dairy business and has worked with the P. P. & L., and during the war the Jeansville Iron Works. Throughout all this time, Mr. Walters has kept a certain ...

IMPROVEMENTS MADE IN SCHOOL BUILDING [Continued from page' 1 ] physics laboratory were built for the school, while those in the chemistry laboratory came to the school from the Hazleton School Board as a loan and from the Hazle Township School Board as a gift. All necessary equipment was bought and the work tables were cleaned and stocked. A balance room was also installed for the advanced chemistry students. During the first week of November, fifty lockers were purchased by the faculty and assembled in the halls. They made it unnecessary for the students to put their wraps in the game room or in the library. This greatly improved the appearance of the building. The game room is now the pride of the school. Here you may find any number of board games to occupy your leisure time, and the ping-pong table is always in use. The game room also boasts a store where the students may purchase candy, ice cream, cakes, and anything else they might ask for. The store is run by the Studen...

Advice To Bookworms This column is addressed to those students who enjoy good books—if there are any such students in this Center. To be labelled a "bookworm" should be a distinct honor to any college undergraduate. Yet how many of us are worthy of this label ? But this is a column of advice and not sermon. Therefore, you who have read this far will receive a formal introduction to the place in our school that is running the game room a close (?) second in popularity. We mean our rapidly growing library. It is composed of books belonging to members of the faculty. Mr. Eiche has put on the shelves classics in American and English literature; Mr. Goas has all his history books there; Mr. Herpel, his mathematics and physics; and Miss Yotter, her many French books. Mr. Janssen has brought books which are very useful for students who would like to get the cosmopolitan slant on things and ideas. He has ¦ a large array of economics, political science, and German literature, as well a...

ALUMNI BITS [Continued from page 2] haven't been sleeping in the way of honors either. Kochy made two honorary fraternities and Eddie made three. Congratulations to both. Carl Schmidt, one of our quiet boys of last year, is now coming into the public eye. He earned a place on the State track team. A Center reunion is held every day in Dr. Martin's history class on the Penn State Campus. It seems that quite a few students took Mr. Goas' advice about electing History 422 and they are all in the same class. Charlie Gallagher made quite a name for himself when he conducted the meeting of the Internationa] Club. The program: was the talk of the campus and everyone said it was the best of the year. All the students of Penn State College, if they enjoyed their Thanksgiving ivacation, should thank Mike Capparell and Tommy Pugliese. It seems that these two initiated the idea of the petition for a longer vacation. Things to be thankful for! Marion Gallagher, a senior at Immaculata, is...

How to replace a blank stare with an intelligent look that takes in nothing. 8. How much there is in the world to know, how little time is four years in which to learn. 9.

How a college columnist can write so many words that mean so little. * * * A freshman receives credit for these definitions: Monologue — A conversation between husband and wife.

Debating Club Mr. Herpel's pet project, the Debating Society, got underway with the election of Gertrude Hecht as president. The debating topic for schools and colleges this year, as suggested by the Forensic League, is "Resolved, that the National Labor Relations Board be empowered to enforce compulsory arbitration of all industrial disputes." Accordingly, the Center Debating Club on Wednesday, December 1 presented a debate on this question before a small but appreciative audience. It was a nondecision debate with Walter Organist and Anthony Piccola on the affirmative, Gertrude Hecht -and Emer Flounders on the negative side of the question. Later the club expects to debate again on this topic before the student body and faculty. Judging from their first debate, your correspondent thinks that this public debate, is something none of the sturlents should miss. j'

For the first time, the westarj teams are rated equal chances _vntl the eastern teams. According ti statistics, the Hazleton Center has : good chance of gaining the champion ship. McGeehan's cagers have already squelched Pottsville. On a westen trip recently the Pottsville team los its two games to the western Centers Uniontown, a team of all six-footer; (Let's hope they're not all _Reiogs) handed them a 48-42 defeat; _DuBois won by a closer score, 31-30, in ar e.xtra period contest.

To Send Delegates To Council Confab The Hazleton Center student council will send four delegates to Pottsville on April 1 to attend the second annual Inter - Center Council Conference. They will participate in a discussion of the problems which confront the councils from the four State Centers. Last year the first conference was held at DuBois where the delegates exchanged views on their governments. At Pottsville a closer tie-up of communication between the Centers will be set up. The Pottsville Center is planning a varied program of conferences and entertainment. Our legislators will have a good time as weli as gain a broader perspective on the machinery of government. The only trouble council now has is to elect the delegates; but every member wants to vote for himself!

THE TOURNAMENT CUP At present the possession of the Tournament Cun is in the hands of the PottsviJle Center. Since the Potters have been defeated by all teams—twice by our Center—the future of the Cup is very uncertain. It might follow Greeley's advice and "go West," for the western Centers are bringing strong aggregations to Hazleton. Our strong Center quintet, however, will attempt to dissuade its going westward by winning the Cup. So you see, ownership of the Cup is a toss-up; but we hope we get it.
