In the army Mr. Hughes served OFFICE CHATTER By Jody Borkowski We welcome Miss Pat McClar an, our new receptionist, to the office staff of Behrend Center. A little" background'" on" "Miss' Mc- Claran should get us better ac quainted with, her, because she is a very attractive and friendly per son. A college campus is not new to Pat who has had a year of instruction at Wittenburg College in Springfield, Ohio. At Behrend, Pat likes working at the switch board, which is not unusual since she possesses “the voice with a smile.” Outside of liking her job, she enjoys basketball games, dan cing, and singing. In the line of music, she loves to hear the “blues,” and her favorite singers are Ella Fitzgerald and Lena Home. We wish Miss McClaran a happy stay at Behrend Center. Mrs. Adams says that she is quite busy filling out official pa pers for the veterans, and hopes to start knitting a sweater for her husband when she has a free moment. Whenever we hear the song, “Three Coins in the Fountain,” we think of Mr. Shields, Mr. Campbell, and Mi - . Turnbull toss ing coins to see who is going to pay for three cups of coffee. We send our best wishes for a rapid recovery to Mrs. Joanne Lep fcowski, who is staying home due to an unexpected illness. Hope we have you back with us very soon, Joanne. DiIHICHAELS PIZZA.

Note to the Editor: It has always been to my know ledge that here in America we have such things as freedom of speech and press. With this under standing in mind, I would like to know why the small section of my first article concerning Dottie (The Hog Caller) Maxwell was kept out of print. You write your articles and I’ll write mine. I de test having my stories cut by some ineffectual, small town editor. By the way, I want to see THIS in print.

The hayride and the refreshments served afterward were free, and many of the stu dents took advantage of them. At the time this column was written, the hayride had not yet taken place, but I’ll venture to say it drew a large part of the student body. The bowling league, under the direction of Mr. Thurbon, is cer tainly off to a fine start. Everyone participating on a team seems to be enjoying himself. Quite a few of the people who signed up for the league have either lost or have found conflicting interests. If any of you want to drop out of the league, please let Mr. Thurbon or Bert Johnson know beforehand. Let’s hope the present enthusiasm and good sportsmanship will last throughout the rest of the season. Mr. Hoover told his music classes of an amusing incident that hap pened to him the other day. It seems he wrote several letters to his friends in the deep south tel ling them how much he missed his home state of Alabama. A week later he received a small box from one of them. The box contained two dead scorpions. Many college girls are greatly worried about cancer developing from their smoking cigarettes, so says a recent Newsweek article. Now they are starting to smoke pipes instead. Pat Stocker and Jan Jackson both think it would be terrible to have the girls’ dormi tory smelling of old stinky pipes instead of perfume and bath salts. Women certainly do have their problems, don’t they? The Botany I class went on a recent field trip on the 19th of October. In the group that took the trip to Cranberry Bog, near Clymer, N. Y„ were: Barbara Ko vacs, Janet Evans, Natalie Kobasa, Marilyn DeMarsh, Venice Ceccacci, Don Ellison, and Mr. Shields, in structor of botany. I assume that everyone has no ticed the ceiling in the student lounge? The ceiling has been swirl plastered and is a light cream color. I walked into the lounge when the plastering was being done and saw Sam Wallwork lean ing back into a chair directing the whole operation to see that it was well done. Anyone having any complaints about the plastering Receives C.P.A. Mr. Joseph P. Vigorito, who is a part time instructor of account ing at Behrend Center, has been notified that he successfully pass ed his examination for certifica tion before the State Board of Ex aminers of Public Accountants in Harrisburg. -Mr. Vigorito is also a member of the American Accounting As sociation. He is a graduate of the Wharton School of Finance and Commerce of the University of Pennsylvania with a B. S. degree, and he received his M. B. A. from the University of Denver, Grad uate School of Business. He also did graduate work in Accounting and Taxation at the University of Michigan and the University of Illinois.

The plastering was done by Joseph Danowski for the consideration of $l5O, plus the mention of his name in this column. Shirley McCauley, Mary Jane Brown, Fran Vidil, Bob Heater, and A 1 Benton had a little trouble on their trip down to Penn State for the homecoming week end; Bob had to buy a new radiator for his car which was installed while the gang waited at the home of Shir ley , McCauley in New Bethlehem. This would have been bad enough, but on the way back home, the car had to be towed a good deal of the distance.' Que lastima! Mr. Hughes, district representa tive of Penn State and Behrend, and Norma Michael, member of the student council, organized the drive for the Red Feather Agen cies here on the Center Campus. Tuesday was the last day to con tribute for this worthy cause. Both Norma and Mr. Hughes wish to thank all the students who gave a helping hand. Anyone finding a blue plastic wallet is asked to return it to Fran Vidil. Fran lost it last Fri day in either the cafeteria or the Memorial Room. There is no iden tification in the wallet, but she is offering a reward to anyone who finds it. The dorm girls. have in their posession two young pups about three months old, that were found on the Behrend Center campus. These dogs look like they have a pure strain of Siberian husky and Alaskan Malainute. If this is so, then the pups ought to have “great coinage, fighting ability, and endurance, and they can sleep outdoors in snowdrifts even ’-in the coldest weather.” If you are interested in owning one of these pups, or both of them, or if you know of someone who is looking for a dog, please contact one of the dorm girls immediately. A happy ending to this column is the announcement of Natalie Kobasa’s engagement to Arthur Shemenski of New Kensington, Pa. Nat, who is a freshman at Beh rend and the assistant editor of the Nittany Cub, received her ring on Saturday, October 23. Archie, who will soon be discharged from the U. S. Marines, visited Nat here at the Center last weekend. To celebrate the engagement. Sue Lockely and Jack McLaughlin, Janie Brown and Ray Ostrowski, Jim Lay and Carolyn Raybeck, and Nat and Archie went to Col lege Inn for an evening of dancing and dining.

Erie Camera Center 14 E.. 10th Street EarlSchriver Trains Unusual Variety of Pets by iSonya Weidner Most people are satisfied to have a dog. or a cat for a pet, or, at the most, a rabbit or a squirrel, but not Earl Sdhiiver, oh no, not Earl: he had to have a brown and White Coopershawk. Earl found .this bird in the vici nity of Waterford on the morn ing of October 9. Noticing the hawk’s fondness for ring-necked pheasants, Earl set a trap in a field which he was certain would attract the hawk. Sure enough, the hawk returned and was trapped. Earl dubbed the hawk “Duchess Brighteyes;” and, since it is of paramount importance that the trainer be a constant companion to the bird, Earl stayed with the “Duchess” practically the entire night when he first brought it home. During the day, the hawk would sit on a perch in Earl’S backyard, while at night, a perch was provid ed for it in the living room. “She had paper under her, though,” admits Earl. Duchess Brighteyes soon became tome enough to allow Earl to feed her by hand. Her diet was com prised of meat (usually beef), mourning doves, and pigeons. The smaller birds were caught by Earl, and then fed to the hawk. If the weather would permit it, the Duchess would take a bath once a day, which she enjoyed very much, as was evident from her splashing about in the water. Earl brought his hawk to school quite often. The bird’s favorite hangout was the rec hall where she could often be seen ogling the card sharks and the ping-pong players. Unfortunately, Earl was not al lowed to enjoy the company of the Duchess for very long. On a recent Saturday evening, Earl returned home after having gone out for a while; and he founck this pet had been killed. Said Earl: “Sonrfe stray cat or dog must have attacked .her.” Al though he was grieved by the loss of Duchess Brighteyes, he already is .-looking for another Cooper shawk to replace her. Earl also has a pet skunk—de odorized, of course—which he calls Scamper. Scamper is staying with some of Earl’s friends in Coopers town; Right now. Scamper is busy collecting ‘ little scraps of paper arid cloth' to use for a nest in whlch ; he will hibernate for the winter.
