Time Will Tell
With the recent election of. Student Council members,
we are eagerly awaiting the fulfillment of their solemn cam
paign promises. It should not be long before it will be a
pleasure to park in the newly smoothed, graveled, and three
laned parking lot. Students need not be late for classes be
cause of the one-time “quagmires” located along the path
between Erie Hall and Turnbull and will have complete assur
ance of their stability when ascending the stairs.
Deeply-engrossed bridge players are guaranteed a lunch
when the fruit machine is placed in the lounge, and those in
the cafeteria will have access to a candy vendor. A new felt
covering for the pool table will aid the accuracy of the players
of the billiard game. Swimmers will be comfortably able to
see what they are doing when a new heater and lighting
system is placed in the bath house.
If more improvement of the campus could possibly be
needed, any student will be able to ask for it through the
suggestion box to be placed in Turnbull Hall.
At last our dreams will become a reality!

“Anybody for ping-pong?” This
question can be heard at almost
any time in Erie Hall from that
amiable and intelligent Gail An

honor student in secondary educa

This ambitious, 5'6", hazel-eyed
Miss ranks swimming, sailing,
horseback riding, and reading
novels and biographies high on the
list of her spare-time activities. Of
course, Gail admits that parties
are at the head of this list. To de
velop her mind further, Gail is now
learning to play bridge.
When lounging or doing home
work, she . enjoys listening to
swing or classical music. Also
among her favorites are fried
chicken, mashed potatoes, and Mike
and Dan, her two dogs. She dis
likes getting up in the morning
and practical jokes.

Although Gail claims to like
Behrend, one can’t help but won

visits to Penn State.

The new building will be located
to the rear of- the tennis courts and
will house science classrooms and
laboratories. No change is to be
made immediately in the water
supply, but as enrollments in
crease, the demand will outstrip
the present supply, and the new
system will be constructed. The
total cost of this phase of the pro
gram and the other two previously
mentioned is estimated at $1,000,-
000. The entire sum will come from
the Behrend trust fund.
The board of trustees at the
Main Campus has also approved
the site organization plan for the
entire development. This is the lay
out for all buildings, roads, and
athletic fields. Each phase must be
approved separately as the pro
gram goes forward, but the first
step is usually the most difficult.
The . program includes a library,
dormitories, gym, athletic fields,
several classroom buildings, fac
ulty housing, and a student union
building. Also included are numer
ous new roads and parking lots.
Mr. .Kochel roughly estimated the
cost for the initial developments at
$3,500,000 to $4,000,000.
