A flurry of activities for Winter
Weekend was launched on Friday
night when Behrend’s basketball
team smashed Dußois on the
home court. If the game wasn’t
excitingly close, the Banana
Eating Contest, which followed,
was. The contest, a first at
Behrend, was sponsored by the
Business Club. Howard Leslie
won the $lO prize by downing 12
bananas in 3 minutes. The Boot
Hill Gang from Mercyhurst and
Mike Morey were featured at the
Coffee House in the R.U.B. dining
hall follwoing the Contest.
Because of a lack of flumes,
Saturday’s snow sculpture
contest was cancelled and
toboggan races were
rescheduled. More successful
was Saturday night’s semi
formal dance. Nearly 40 couples,
many for first time, tried such
things as a waltz, a polka, and a
tarantella as well as the usual
dances. The Car-Mels of Erie
provided the music.
Othello, which was based on the
Shakesperian play, was run on
Sunday evening. This movie,
which starred Laurence Olivier
and Maggie Smith, was the final
activity of Winter Weekend.
Howard Leslie, Behrend Banana-Eating Champ, gulps one of the
twelve bananas-he-ate in three minutes, as just part of the Winter

Visitation Discussed
Before Advisory Board
At the first two SGA
meetings of the winter term,
a main topic was the dorm
visitation policy, but this by
no means was the only area of
discussion. At the January 6
meeting, the decision was
made to accept applications
from qualified students to fill
the three vacancies that exist
within the SGA. Also, Colleen
Healy was appointed to fill
the vacant secretarial
position. Dean Lane spoke of
the possibility of a program
on human sexuality to be held
here, which would involve
both formal speakers and
“buzz sessions” including
students and faculty. Next,
the Union Board announced
that it will present Pat
Paulsen and “Alive and

The first meeting will be a brief
introduction to draft counseling
and what is entailedr If there is
enough interest at the first
meeting, then additional courses
will be sponsored. Tim Muzzio,
co-worker at the Erie Draft Law
Center, says, “The purpose of the
course is to educate attendants to
counsel in an impartial and ob
jective manner in respect to the
Selective Service System and
Enlistment Procedures.”
Mr. Pat Mertens, Director of
the Erie Draft Law Information
Center, will be teaching the
session. Mertens is a former
Peace Corps worker and was
engaged in draft counseling while
a graduate student at the State
University at Binghamton. He
says the draft laws are becoming
increasingly complex and draft
counseling explains-the various
choices a man has when he is of
draft, age. Also, it explores the
possibilities that are open to you
upon entering the armed forces.
Some of the topics that will be.
discussed are enlistment
procedures, conscientious ob
jectors, hardship deferments,
and a general understanding of
the draft law.
