LOFTY AIMS FOR N.S.A.
In September, 1947, on the campus of the University of Wis
consin at Madison, Wisconsin, there was launched the United
States National Student Association. Some 750 delegates repre
senting 1,389,000 students in 356 leading colleges and universities
throughout the United States met there to plan a dynamic and
comprehensive program of activities to be carried out on the in
dividual campuses represented there. The aims and purposes of
this permanent organization are beautifully expressed in the pre
amble to the constitution, "We, the students of the United States
of America, desiring to maintain academic freedom and student
rights, to stimulate and improve democratic student governments,
to develop better educational standards, facilities, and teaching
methods, to improve student cultural, social and physical welfare,
to promote international understanding and fellowship, to guaran
tee to all people, because of their inherent dignity as individuals,
equal rights and possibilities for primary, secondary and higher
education regardless of sex, race, religion, political beliefs or econ
omic circumstances, to foster the recognition of the rights and
responsibilities of students to the school, the community, humani
ty, and God, and to preserve the interests and integrity of the
government and Constitution of the United States of America, do
hereby establish this Constitution of the United States National
The Pennsylvania regional conference of the USNSA was held
at the Pennsylvania State 'College December 19 to 21, 1947. The
Hazleton Undergraduate Center was represented there by sopho
mores Patricia Kringe and Gladys Lorah. 'This time the regional
conference was held in conjunction with the annual convention of
the National Student Government Association, and Sophomore
Frank Lucia represented HUC there.
To The Faculty
During the recent semester it has
been my privilege to serve as •pres
ident of the college council and the
sophomore •class. On several occa
sions, I have been approached by
members of both groups for informa

school activities— an indispensible
characteristic of any growing institu
It is only through this medium
that all council members, as well as
class officers, are aware of your de
sires. If you have something to say,
tell it to student reuresentatives, so
that we may be better able to serve
you in the future.
The Editor's Dilemma
Getting out a newspaper is fun,
but it's no picnic.
If we print jokes people say we
are silly. If we don't they say we
are to serious.
If we clip things from other news-

don't appreciate true genius.
If we do print them, the page is
filled with junk.

The Case Of The
Missing Ash Trays
In the past it hs been proven that
the average American is the greatest
souvenir hunter in the world. This
has been found to be especially true
for the G. Vs during the past war
and as the Student Council has no
ticed, HUC is blessed with several of
these average' Americans. In the not
so reasonable facsimile of a game
room, half of the ashtrays provided
for the students' convenience have
managed to sprout legs and creep
into someone's pockets. Unofficial re
ports have it that one of these glass
ash trays dropped from 'a -student's
pocket while at the Broad Street
Building. So any students who are
having sleepless nights, suffering
from nervousness and indigestion,
try returning those ash trays and see
the difference it will make.

What Are You Going To Miss Most
When You Leave HUC in February?
FRANCIS FA TSIE
"I'm going to miss the many
friends and acquaintances I have
made here and the intimate student
faculty relationships which exist
here at HUC."
"I will surely miss all the faculty,
students and office girls when I leave
HUC. I will also miss seeing the
HUC basketball games, especially
"Without a doubt I can say what
I will miss most of all here at HUC
is the many friends that I have made
during my stay here. I like people,
but I like them better when I know
them well. Being a student here has
enabled me to know many people
very well that I might not have met
otherwise. Being an individual
rather than a number is also some-
HUC Women's Events
Every college has its lighter side,
and now that blue books are nearly
over, and long - faces are shrinking
back to their original size, we can
take time to review the past semester
of women's events.

First on the list was the election
of sorority officers. Gladys Lorah
was voted president of the body.
Teacups, or rather orchids, go to the
sophomore women who acted as hos
tesses at a tea given for the fresh
man women and faculty members.
Next on the calendar was a pledge
party given by the sophomores at
which the freshmen women were giv
en pledge ribbons and regulations
for initiation. As entertainment,
Truth and Consequences was played

the group when she answered an un
usually difficult question.
In the line of music and dramatics,

Theresa Zogby joined the ranks as a

A girls' basketball team was or

Pat Kringe as captain while Marga

Two sophomore women, Margaret
Switzer and Marguerite Rondish,
both majoring in Medical Technolo
gy, are leaving for the campus in
February. To these two and to all
classmates leaving, we wish the best
thing that I will miss. What I mean
by this is, that at the campus (as in
the Navy) I will be tossed into a sea
of thousands of faces. I will not
know a vast •majority of those people
and they will not know me. In ad
dition to all this, leaving a •good
home and good meals is - not entirely
to my liking."
"I'm going to miss the good
friends who bought numbers and
football pools from me. I wish to an
nounce that all future transactions
during my absence will be handled
by Leon Baden and Jimmy Fisher."
"I know I shall miss the congenial
atmosphere that prevails here and
all the social gatherings that really
brought the gang together."
"Leaving HUC will mean leaving
the many good friendships I have ac
quired here and the parties I have
attended. Most of all I'm going to
miss Emmit's Coffee Shop with its

people I got to know and liked and
the feeling of oneness in the classes,
also the close relationships between
the teachers and students."
