The council wishes to make clear
to the students that their meetings

They are the representatives of the
students, and any suggestions or
criticisms will be welcomed by them.
The council favors the return of
the record player to the game room,
and the installation of a “Coke”
machine. Both these proposals will
be accomplished shortly.
The COLLEGIAN extends its con

At the next meeting of the Drama

will select, from a group of twelve
choice plays, their first, to be pre

imately twelve plays sent from the
campus, ranging from drama to
farce, will give the members a wide
selection to choose from. Miss Scar

HAZLETON UNDERGRADUATE CENTER, HAZLETON, PA
We are able to announce today,
that the music department need not
beg or steal the music and instru
ments which are necessary to en
hance the success of both the glee
club and band, for they shall resort
to borrowing such needed equipment.
However, borrowing is a difficult task
and requires the fullest cooperation
of all persons involved. Your repor
ter has been informed by Miss Gar
brick that such cooperation from
persons and organizations inside and
outside the realm of lIUC is excel
lent. On the suggestion of a member
of the band, she had gone to Berwick
to discuss, with Mr. Llewlyn, Ber
wick’s High School band director, the
matter of appropriating instruments.
Her talk with Mr. Llwelyn has pro
ven to be a decided success, for he,
with the approval of the Berwick
school board, lias agreed to loan the
HUC, band instruments such as:
bass drum, french horn, cymbals,
baritone, oboe and bassoon. It is al
so reported that the Weatherly band
has loaned music to our school band.
With such fine cooperation Miss Gar
brick is certain that the HUC band
will become a leading regional mu
Not only is the cooperation of the
distant towns of a high calibre, but
the members of the band and glee
club have shown a most gratifying
attitude toward their respective
clubs. Although some twenty-nine '
members had previously signed for j
the band, only eight of those persons '
came to the first meeting - ; however,
the second gathering improved in
number from eight to ten. The third
meeting, the members of the band
brought their instruments and in
creased their attendance from ten to
twelve. It is expected that the fourth
meeting will prove an even greater
success since the members of the
band now realize, through the spirit
and success of the rehearsal, that it
has great possibilities. The instru
mentalists present at the rehearsal
were: six clarinet .players, three
trombone players, one trumpet pla
yer, and a drummer. Other musicians
were also present, but, due to the
lack of instruments at the moment,
they could not participate. Miss Gar
brick stated. “The material is excel

One of the happiest moments of
his life was when he left Poland in
April of 1939, five months before
Hitler’s goose-stepping hordes started
their march toward world conquest.
His first stop was Port-au-Spain,
Trinidad. Here he attended the
Queen’s Royal High School. He
stayed in Trinidad for six and one
half years, then embarked for the
U.S.A. He arrived in New York in
January of 1946.
Simon is a freshman at HUC where
he is majoring in premedicine.
When asked his opinion of the U.S.
he said, “I think the United States is
the most progressive country in the
world, especially in the social and
technical fields. It can bo the main
factor in bringing about peace in the
world today if it is directed in the
right manner by its leaders.”
In regards to women, Simon says,
“An ideal date is a girl that is well
mannered and who can carry on an
interesting- conversation. She must
be serious in nature and have a nice
sense of humor.”
Uis hobbies are stamp collect ing,
painting, and sports.
their problems are not so large and
so varied as those facing the band,
one major opposition to the complete
success of the club is the lack of first
tenors. The fact that the first tenor
part is more difficult than most of
the other five parts is proven in Ihe
fact that the glee club boasts of only
two persons who are able to sing ihe

YOUR NEW STUDENT COUNCIL
Mystery Of The
Visitors to the Walnut Street Buil
ding stared in disbelief at the sight
of two large barrels in the game
room. With paper cups in hand there
was a line af students waiting for a
What was it? Well, it was the ci
der that remained from our Hallow
e’en Dance. A number of freshmen
brought it down from St. John’s Hall.
Apples, pretzels and potato chips
were also available, and an “In Be
tween Classes Snack” was enjoyed
by the'student body.
(Your reporter hesitates to com
ment on the thoughts that may have
arisen in the minds of people, when
they saw the barrels rolled into tile
building by four lmsky freshmen.)
A misfortune occured which was
much to our displeasure. Mr. Moe
Drum, our night janitor, was quite
amazed to find the game room floor
covered with cider. Upon investiga
tion, lie discovered that a gaping
hole was present in one of the bar
rels. What did Mr. Drum do? Well,
on that night, the floors of the Wal
nut Street Building were scrubbed
TENTATIVE BUDGET SET UP FOR H.U.C.
1 he- manner in which student activity fees are administered lias long
been a topic of conversation in our school. Countless questiuru. are
asked and many suggestions are made in the game room. This is
hardiy the place for these suggestions.
We are publishing a tentative budget to be submitted to your student
council at their next meeting. If you notice any articles of this budget
that do not meet with your approval, attend this meeting and voice
your opinion. Let the council know what you think. Democracy will
work only if you will.
A Lille Lies
All clubs are requested to submit their budget, name of club, and
proposed expenditures at the student council meeting November 18, at
the Walnut Street Building. Council convenes at 6:00 P. M.
The scholastic record of each stu
dent is kept in credits, a credit re
presenting one hour of recitation or
lecture work per week for one se
mester, or from two to three hours of
practicum per week for one semester.
The grading system in use at the
college is a follows:
3 (90 to 100)
2 (80 to 89)
1 (70 to 79)
0 (60 to 69)
-1 (45 to 59)
-2 ( oto 44)
A grade of -1 or -2 is a failure, and
the subject must be repeated.
To be eligible for graduation at
the College, students must have grade
points equal in number to the credits
required for the degree. Grade points
are determined by multiplying the
grade earned by the number of cre
dits for the subject. For example:
Math. 10, 4 credits, with a grade of
2, is the equivalent of 8 grade points.
In substance this means that although
0 is a passing grade, an average of 1
is required for graduation.
