HUC Students
Invited To YWCA
HUC faculty, students and their
friends are invited to attend Club
"rX.", a recreation center for young
people past high school age, which is

dancing (Virginia Reel, Paul Jones,
etc.) The following HUC students

"When Sherman said what war
was, he must have been thinking of
cleaning an rifle covered with
cosmoline," was the statement of one
ROTC lad at this school. That's what
the local Vaskomen have been doing
the past three weeks—cleaning the
gooey stuff from their rifles.
Sgt. John Vasko admitted this
week that there axe 65 weapons in
the arms room at Wainut Street and
every one of them arrived swimming
in oil and the boys have been
cleaning ever since.
The fastest rate of cleaning which
has been reached is one rifle in two
and a half hours—if there is a lot of
outside help. Each one of the mem
bers of the HUC unit has been made
responsible for his firearm.
If the bad weather is fair enough
tomorrow, according to the sergeant,
the boys will spread their parts out
on the Walnut Street playground
and dig into the job that Duz won't
do! "That oil seems to seep from all
over when the guns start to get hot."
Literary Mag
Deadline Set
The deadline for contributions to
the forthcoming Literary Magazine
was set for April 24 with a commit
tee of students interested in the proj
ect. Everyone is invited to submit as
many contributions as he desires so
long as his material is original. No
limitations have been placed upon
the type of literature, style or length.
Students are urged to attend the
meetings and take advantage of this
opportunity to display their talents
in all fields of literature.
When the question arose as to how
a name for the magazine should be
selected, the group decided that all
English students would be given a
chance to offer suggestions in class.
