MANY BEHIND THE SCENES The Third Annual Pennsylvania Junior College Athletic Asso ciation Basketball Tournament opens tonight at the Hazleton High School Gymnasium. Few persons watching the competiting tournament teams will realize how much "behind the scenes" work was necessary to make the tournament an artistic, if not a financial success. Several administrative officials, faculty mem bers and students spent many hours each day for the past four weeks making preparations for the basketball playoffs which be gin tonight. These men and women are to be commended for their spirit and enthusiasm. Now we may say, "Well done." The students who should receive special thanks for the part they played in making it possible to stage the tournament are: William Steiner, Hugh Close, Wilson Barto, Leon Baden, Dan Wargo, Anita Goldberg, George Demshock and John Ward., THINGS MIGHT MOVE - BUT FAST Monday most HUC veterans received their last VA subsistance check bearing the old value of sixty-five dollars since the long awaited increase of ten dollars goes into effect this month. The checks for $75, however, will not be in the veterans' hands until the first part of April. The increase is the result of many months of waiting by the GI students. Last spring a concerted effort was made by Vet organizations to put pressure on the Congress for swift approval of the new rate. But the final word passed over President Truman's desk only recently. The actual job took almost a year after the men under the dome decided to do something about the conditions. The next thing to be watched in Washington regarding the Vets of the nation is the final action on the profits realized by the government from GI insurance. Something should happen before September inasmuch as a presidential year always makes things move but fast. What's Your Name? It was an optimist who said, "Things .could be worse." Take names, for instance. It's interesting to consider what your name would be if it were the antonym it might have, or if the syllables were turned around.

HAZLETON COLLEGIAN 61 kg° 0 ELLIOT LAWRENCE - His College Records As Good As His Band Fifty-five prom dates in one sea son is a record for any band and that's the record that's been made by Elliot Lawrence, twenty-two year old band leader. What's more, Elliot is so fresh from the University of Pennsylvania's Academy of Music, that seniors there still remember his playing as an undergraduate at col lege functions. Incidentally, this campus favorite began his musical career at the age of three conducting a "kid" band on a small Pennsylvania radio sta tion. 76 IN CLASS The first enrollment of physical education classes ever to be held at HUC numbers 76 at the present time.
