Behrend Offered Bowling Alleys On Monday, March 14, Mr. Kochel, administrative head of Behrend Center, received a letter from the dean of physical educa tion at Penn State. The letter stated that two bowling alleys were being removed from the girls’ gym nasium due to a new building pro gram, and that Behrend could have the alleys if there was room to install them. These alleys would be shipped to the Center and in stalled in Erie Hall, free of charge on the part of the student council. Mr. Kochel informed the coun cil of the matter on Wednesday, March 16, and they lost no time in accepting the offer. A reply was sent' immediately and the alleys will be installed in the near future. Plans have been formed for in stallation space in the basement of Erie Hall. So far, the best site for the alleys is along the west wall of the student lounge. The alleys would run from north to south, which would mean that the door of the lounge would have to be moved around the comer pro viding for an entranee from the north side.
