Archery Club Buys
New Straw Target
The recently organized Archery
Club has purchased a thirty-six
inch target with the aid of a
Student Council appropriation. The
members have purchased their own
bows and arrows, made by David
Stewart who also supervises the
sport. The future Robin Hoods are
Marian Quick, Mervine Raphel,
Jean Davis, Betty Puckey, Robert
Golden, Joseph Connolly, Russell
Chianelli, and David Stewart.
Reporter Keeps Ear
Close to Ground
The inquiring reporter has been
listening to his classmates’ plans
for the summer and for next year.
For a great many the plan seems to
be to have no plan. But some of
the plans are definite enough to
report here. If this eavesdropping
has revealed to him things that are
not true, think kindly of him and
remember that what he records
might come true.
Bill Ramsay may play a few sets
of tennis this summer before pack
ing up for State College in the fall.
But Bill will meet a lot of old
friends there, for the Green Street
Girls seem to be going too: Jean
Davis, Betty Puckey, Mervine
Raphel, Ruth Reid, Marian Quick,
and who else lives there anyway!
Some of the boys have mentioned
that they too will continue their
social and academic careers on the
main campus: Russ Chianelli, Tom
Butchko, Joe Mattick, Saul Tom
berg, and Bob Wilson among them.
There are some others who are
thinking of State College, but they
did not whisper so vociferously
within earshot of this reporter. Let
us turn then to the venturesome
individuals, who are going farther
afield. George Kline has casually
remarked that he is going to Min
nesota. And John Corby has long
planned to transfer to Lafayette.
Mary Ann McClintock will spend
the summer balancing the Student
Council books before trekking
down to Swarthmore. Albert Eagler
may look in on NYU next fall,
but it sounds suspiciously like an
excuse to see the World’s Fair.
Ted Beishline seems about to
come into his rightful heritage.
Don Hess will give up chasing
jitterbugs for the pursuit of more
dangerous bugs at Pitt’s pre-med
ical school. Ernie Watkins has been
thinking of Bucknell Junior College
in his own back yard.
Low mutterings about State
College have been heard at times
from the lips of John Mooty, Bob
Miller, Squire Ogrydziak, Bob
Maybe it isn’t sports but the
recent Geology trip was responsible
for more weary muscles than many
an athletic contest. Some of the
survivors were; heard to mutter
about "climbing a mountain,” but
the most reliable reports have it
that only a few, a very few, ever
got to the top of that mountain.
At that it must have been quite a
day with climbing down into "pot
holes,” changing tires—a fine sport
if you look at it the right way—,
and seeking hidden lakes. And that
birthday cake with a sandwich or
two to precede it must have been
nearly an excuse for a marathon.
Someone said he got back to Hazle
ton at one-thirty of the following
morning, which makes the whole
thing into an endurance test —and
that is no longer sport but work.
The devotees of the three pound
brass doughnuts have built them
selves a court at the side of the
Center building. There is never
a dull moment, but the game has
n’t half the finesse of horseshoes,
where the expert can knock another
shoe out of the most secure of
positions. More power in the
pitching arm —to the quoit-heavers,
for they are having plenty of fun.
Since Jack Gallup cracked an
ankle the softball enthusiasm has
waned somewhat. The rocky back
field has been a constant threat to
feet and ankles for so strenuous a
sport. And it is strenuous since the
softball is now so hard that anyone
who can connect with it at all is
sure to give the fielders plenty to
do. The elaborate organization of
the softball league was a step in
the right direction. The next will
have to be a better field.
Dave Stewart and his bowmen
may take a bow ("ow” is in howl)
for the newest sport of the month.
We’ve seen some of Dave’s handi-
Marks, and Neal Brislin among the
sophomores. And the freshmen are
not to be outdone with Harry
Ashenfelter, Jack Gallup, Sal Lio,
Angelo Lucadamo, Frank Ott,
Dick Showers, Tex Stein, and Gene
Stull climbing on the bandwagon.
This leaves somewhat less than
99 and 44-100 per cent of the
present enrollment to return to the
Center next year. The inquiring
reporter just inquired how many
end-of-the-year plans are carried
through the next fall. He found
that the summer is a good time
to review one’s accomplishments
and to reorganize for the future.
Maybe the real destinations of our
crew will range from Hazleton to
work on bows, and it’s first rate
stuff. Now if too many of the
beginners don’t lose heart when
the arrows perversely miss the
target and the left forearm grows
red and raw from the slap of the
bowstring, there will be a lot of
sport in store for them.
The winter ping-pong seems to
have developed some tennis players.
Or maybe the indoor game has
just been a stop-gap for the clay
court experts. There’s real pep in
the tennis team. If you doubt it,
just check on Angelo Lucadamo’s
efforts to secure transportation for
.the team last Sunday. He probably
buttonholed every automobile own
er in the Center.
The rugged individualists —an-
other name for the followers of
Izaak Walton —have sallied forth
on recent week-ends since the
opening of the season. No reports
of the "one that got away” and
really was "that long” have yet
reached our ears.
The week-end of May 20 proved
that boys will be boys and men
will also be boys. The student body
moved en masse to George Kline's
farm for a picnic. There the splash
of the swimmers mingled with the
twang of bow-string. At the Goas
summer cottage, where the men of
the faculty were boys again, there
was also a splash—it is reported
that the level of the pond rose
three inches. A ball game —again
with a hard softball —and innumer
able badminton matches rounded
out the week-end of informal
