Students Journey
To Penn State
By Jack Rimp
On November 6, a number of
students will journey to State, to
take in the game between Penn
State and Holy Cross. This excur
sion, under the.sponsorship of Mr.
Hughes, district representative of
Perm State, promises to be full of
fun. A few of the students who
plan to attend this game are: Jane
Eisenbei’g, JoA n n Haumesser,
Charlotte Flack, Mary Ann Jack
son, John Mallory, Willie Storer,
Mr. and Mrs. Bob Gomall, and
Mr. and Mrs. Carl Anderson.
A special feature of the half
time activities will be a presenta
tion of a number of district bands
around the State College area,
plus the State band and the Holy
Cross organization. If the game
itself does not draw a great num
ber of Behrend students, surely the
presentation of these musical or
ganizations should interest some
music minded individuals.
The Behrend Center seats will
be reserved between the 30-40 yard
lines. Be sure to sit in this sec
tion if you go. Cars and drivers,
will be needed for the trip, so get
that co-operative spirit going and
help your fellow students. Mr.
Hughes plans to leave at eight
a. m. on Saturday, November 6.
