book staff is once again having
difficulties in acquiring financial
support for its annual publication,
BITS OF BE:EI:REND. The staff
must obtain $550 from sales of
student subscriptions before the
yearbook can be printed. Accord
ing to Dee Schilling, chairman of
the yearbook staff, only a small
percentage of this sum has been
collected to date.
In order to facilitate yearbook,
purchases by students, a special
table will be set up in Erie Hall
during registration for the Spring
Term. At that time, students
wishing to purchase yearbooks
may deposit $4.00 at the table to
BEHREND CAMPUS—The Pennsylvania State University
The President's Office has
announced that registration for
the Spring Term will begin on
Tuesday, March 27, instead of
Monday, March 26. Monday will
be donated to student advising.
Registration will end on Wednes
day and classes will begin at 8
a.m. Thursday, March 29.
The change in schedule, it was
pointed out, will provide students
with a whole day in which to
consult with their advisors, effect
transfers among academic pro
grams, adjust their schedule for
the Spring Term, and prepare their
early registration for the Summer
or Fall Term.
Experience with the Winter
Term registration revealed the
desirability of having a day for
advising prior to registration.

at Mardi Gras
Students May Throw
Pies at Professors
Pie-throwing at faculty members, separate "twist" contests for
students and faculty, awarding of prizes for unusual costumes, and
a host of other gay activities are all being considered as possible
seginents of a fusion of fun filled frolics—the likes of which have
not been on the Behrend Campus in some time.
The occasion, of course, is the Fifth Annual Mardi Gras, sched
uled to begin early in the evening of Friday, April 6, and expected to
continue into the wee hours of the following Saturday morning.
Mr. Ronald Thomas and Miss Margaret Schumacher, faculty ad
visors concocting the bill of fun for the occasion, are reported to be
well underway with arrangements.
Mr. Thomas has stated that he
would like to make the event a
masquerade affair in which all
attending would be required to
wear a costume. In such a case,
prizes will probably be awarded to
those single persons and couples
with the most original and unique
In addition, it: has been rumored
that, in the past, special booths
had been erected for pie -throw
ing at faculty members. This
involved, naturally, a slight cost
to the pie thrower. The possibili
ties of having a similar booth this
year are also being contemplated
by the advisors.
At present, dancing has not
been included in the format of
the Mardi Gras. However, consi
deration is being given to possible
"twist" contests, including sepa
rate competion in both the student
and the faculty ranks.
To encourage campus-wide par
ticipation, Mr. Thomas and Miss
Schumacher are urging all campus
organizations to erect and operate
at least one booth apiece for the
occasion. The Hamot Hospital
student nurses and the Behrend
athletic department have both
definitely agreed to conform to
this suggestion. Profits made at
any of these booths will be used
to reinforce the depleted funds of
the Behrend Campus S.G.A.
Always a gay and festive occa
sion in the past, this year's Mardi
Gras is intended to carry on this
five-year-old tradition in a spirit
unsurpassed in previous years, and
which possibly• will not be sur
passed for years to come.

Icarus, the Behrend Campus'
yearly literary magazine, is once
again in the process of formation.
Dean of student affairs, Benjamin
A. Lane, reports that several man
uscripts have already been sub
mitted for the publication. Ma
terial published in Icarus is ex
clusively that of Behrend students,
and consists of a variety of liter
ary products including poetry,
essays, and short stories.
Icarus was first formulated in
1960 by members of the Literary
Club. These students felt that an
outlet was needed for creative
writing for students at Behrend.
The prototype magazine consisted
of a few mimeographed sheets
The 1961 version, however, was
much improved, with printed
pages and a more attractive cov
er. This year's edition will prob
ably be similar, to a great extent,
to last year's.
Anyone may submit to Icarus
and all are encouraged to do so.
Manuscripts should be submitted
to Dean Lane.
No definite date has yet been
selected for sales of the magazine
to the student body.
