Although football holds the spotlight now, basketball season is
only three weeks away. Our own team knows it only too well as
they are winding up their fifth week of hard practice under the super
vision of Coach Syd Rudman. Eighteen men still remain on the squad
and according to Coach Rudman he will retain that many for home
games. It is planned to carry 12 men for away games. Named for
forward positions are the following first semester freshmen: John
Riley, 6’, John McHugh, 5'9”, Bob Kostic, 5’7”, Jack Fedock, 5’11”,
and Johnny Appichella, 6’, while Don Barnes, 5’10”, and Norby
Leonard, 5’9”, are second semester freshmen. Four rangy boys are
working out in the center position including Karl Wagner, 6’, Ray
Williams, 6’, Art Hutchinson, 6'5”, and Ray Saul, 6’3”. The first
three are first semester freshmen while Saul is second semester. The
guards are: Art Johnson, 6’, and Bob Welliver, 5’7”, both first
semester freshmen: Joe Maday, 6’, Charlie McGlynn, 5*9”, first
semester sophomores, and A 1 Durbach, 6’, John Riordan, 6’ who are
second semester sophomores. These assignments are not definite as
each player is required to know how to play each position. All in all
we have a rangy, aggressive team that should go places if they have
the co-operation of the student body. They are playing a tough
schedule this season, which means plenty of hard work. The team
needs your help, and you can help them by attending the home games.
When the first game rolls around, be there to cheer your team on to
Toe .ten the managers of a team go unmentioned. Their job is
to assist the coach in every way possible. They take care of minor
injuries, equipment, and whatever the player may need. They attend
practice just like the rest of the squad. This year Gene Bogdon is head
manager assisted by Bob Patonovich, and Clarence Sipple.

Sorority To Admit
The president of the Omega Chi
Tau Sorority has announced that
freshman girls will be admitted to
the organization November 11. The
sophomore girls who are enrolled in
the organization will invite, in the
near future, the freshman girls to
attend the formal acceptance of new
recruits at a covered-dish social. The
covered-dish social is an affair where
each member brings some sort of re
freshment such as cake, candy, etc.
Included in the activities of the oc
casion will be the installation of the
recently sophomore officers who are:
President—lrene Golias, Vice-Presi
dent—Eugena Maczkov, Secretary—
Ann McHugh, and Treasurer—Rene
Olivia. Mrs. Amos Goss is acting as
advisor to the sorority.
Regular meetings of the sorority
are held in the library on the second
and fourth Tuesday of each month.
The meeting takes in the reading of
the minutes, the treasurer’s report,
and the discussion of both old and
The primary purpose of the orga
nization is the promotion of activities
such as dances and teas; however,
the most important event on the so

fairs are covered by monthly twenty
five cent dues.
The last meeting was held on Oct.
29, while the first faculty tea was
held at a previous date. Present at
the tea were the women faculty

The personality of an automobile
driver can be really determined by
his actions and reactions. Generally
we can divide drivers into two clas
ses: the careful drivers, and the
heedless ones. Since very little atten
tion is ever given to careful people,
we shall devote our thoughts to the
careless, those whose names frequent
the obituary columns.
In this discussion we shall review
only those types of careless drivers
that are most eminent. We can divide
them into four classes: Speeders,
Anti-Socials, Lovers, and Primpers.
The Speeders and the Anti-Socials
can be distinguished from the others
in that they have no definite reason
for their carelessness. In order to
get to his destination quickly, the
Speeder manipulates his vehicle in
and out of traffic, causing flaring
tempers and gnashing teeth. % The
Speeder finds that he has a lot of
time to waste, and usually he utilizes
it by—that’s right—jumping into his
car and speeding some more.
The Anti-Social driver gains pecu
liar satisfaction from making man
and beast shy away from his vehicle.
He swerves into ditches to frighten
dogs; he turns into puddles to splash
Social Schedule Set-Up

pedestrians; his life often ends in
the driver’s seat.
Proceeding to the class of drivers
whose actions have a purpose, we
find the Lovers more prominent than
the Primpers. The Lover fails to rea
lize that it requires two hands to o
perate an automobile safely; he pays
no attention to the road when his la
dy love sits beside him. When you
see o Lover lean out of the window
of his moving car to whistle at a fe
male, you can later see that same
Lover occupying a cot in a hospital.
Speeders, Anti-Socials and Lovers
are usually male drivers, but Prim
pers are strictly female. Glancing
into a rear-view mirror to adjust a
stray curl or to apply make-up, the
Primper manages to scrape a great
many fenders. Her repair bills are
