Behrend Welcomes Alumni
Grads Return
to Haunt Campus
By Fred Loell
That time has rolled around
again. By “that time” we mean
Homecoming. It seems that some
of the alumni, have started com
ing back to “Good Old B. C.” a
wee bit early. Joe Schmitt, Bob
Brandt, and Nancy Johnston were
prowling around the campus a
few days ago. Joe said he was
looking for Chenne. Try the swim
ming pool, Joe.
Jane Eisenberg and Mary Ann
Jackson, a pair of avid “revival
ists,” were numbered among the
more than early arrivals. It seems
that Jane is planning to come
back to Behrend Center for the
spring semester and just wanted
to see if the bowling alleys would
make the whole venture worth
Rumor has it that Dotty Max
well, Val Meals, and Patty Lentz
are going to land on us for the
gala weekend. If this is really the
case, the present residents of the
Old. Veterans Home can depend
on those three to really clean the
place up. Ask Earl Schriver if
they didn’t do a bang-up job last
year. While the O.VJEL is being
mentioned, has anyone heard how
“Dee” Pagan is making out . . .
with her dramatic studies, that is?
Don. “Who Threw My Pants Out
the Window” Catlin was seen'eye
ing the. pool with a longing look.
Don was noted for his ability at
'the “Sleeping Dive.”
Bob “Finally” -Detisch will un
doubtedly be prowling around the
old place to see. if anyone has
found his' secret studying place.
It must have been a dilly because
Bob’s average was TERRIFIC.
Has anyone seen “Kelly?” Dot
was noted, if you will remember,
for (hiving the “Cub” staff with
a long black whip, but we enjoyed
it no end.
I would like to close this column
by mentioning a fellow who has
become a by-word at Behrend—
Smoky, alias Jack Rimp. Poor
Jack is no longer considered
among the living ... he trans
ferred to Gannon. Rest in peace,
But seriously, grads, although
we cannot mention all your names,
everyone at Behrend is looking
forward to seeing you at the
Homecoming festivities.
The parking situation on
the Behrend Center campus
has become acute. When
the first- snow falls this
situation will probably get
worse. It is therefore re
quested that all students
try to set up car pools so
that a minimum number of
cars will be on campus.
All cooperation in this
matter will be very much
Yearbook to be
Published for
Second Time
One of the most enterprising
projects this year at Behrend will
be the publishing of a school
The last yearbook was publish
ed in 1950. This book had the
distinction of being the first suc
cessful attempt at the project.
The Cub of 1950 was an attractive
book in white cover with name
in blue lettering. Most of the pic
tures are the usual yearbook style:
individual pictures, of each stu
dent and of the various clubs and
social events.
This year, however, the theme
of the whole book will be entire
ly different. “We are going to give
it an informal touch,” remarked
Mr. Patterson. “There will be no
rogues gallery pictures.” The forty
eight picture pages will catch, in
an informal way, college life. Per
haps you will see a picture of the
Botany lab class looking in awe
through the microscopes at plant
cells; or the physical education
class tumbling. All the dances will
be included; clubs will also be
pictured, not in formal arrange- J
ment, but about their work. 1
A great number of students are
enthusiastic about the creation of
a yearbook this year. The staff
is well organized and the plan
ning has begun. Martha Mulligan
heads the staff as editor the
heads of the various departments
are as follows: Business Manager,
Sue -Hansen; Photography, Mari
lyn Pringle, and Fred Loell; Art
Director, Dennis Polatas; Lay-out
Director, Linda Hamer; Narra
tive, Jeanette Flory and Anne
IVTane Pagel, and Typing, Honey

Evaluates Behrend
Representatives of the Middle
Atlantic States’ Association of
Colleges and Secondary Schools
visited Pennsylvania State Uni
versity during October for the
purpose of evaluating all phases
of college work connected with
the school.
Penn State was evaluated sev
eral years ago, but because of the
increase in population, the uni
versity asked to be evaluated again
to be sure it was doing a good
job as far as teaching standards
are concerned.
This was the largest evaluation
ever undertaken by the Middle
Atlantic States’ Association, so the
members of the association and
people connected with Penn State
appreciated the full co-operation
of everyone connected with the

Friday, October 21 at 6:00 P. M.
is the time set for registration of

cept for the fact that it will give
the Alumni a chance to talk over

The annual Homecoming ban
quet will be held Saturday night
at 6:30 P. M. After the banquet
there will be a dance held in Erie
Hall at 8:30. This dance has al
ways been a huge success and
you, the students and Alumni, can
make it that again this year by
attending and joining the crowd.
The feature at the dance will
be the crowning of the Home
coming Queen. Any girl wishing to
run for queen can submit a peti
tion of ten names along with a
picture of herself to Bob Gomall.
Pete Dedad has obtained Neil
Charles and his band to provide
the music for the dance, which
is under the direction of Don
Godfrey. Along with the glamor
ous side of the dance, there will
be the dismal side also, that being
the cleaning up of the gym after
the dance. That will be very well
taken care of because Warren Rose
is in charge of the clean-up com
Don McLaughlin and Gilbert
Rienath are in charge of the pro
grams and greeting ,the Alumni
as they arrive. The mailing out

the direction of Dennis Polatas
with Bill Schweitzer, John Kol
pien, and Ross Caruana as his
Head of the catering service for
the banquet is Bob Purucker. He
is planning many delicious foods
including five different meats,
and luscious appetizers.
We are all hoping for a suc
cessful Homecoming, and that
can only be achieved by a big
turnout. A good time is being
planned for all, so we would like
to see you all at Behrend Center’s
