Collegian Curtain Time
On stage everybody. Curtain going up! The run of another
show is over, and it's time for bows.
Step forward, Miss Lois Neifert, and accept a dozen orchids
for the splendid job you performed
as director. By devoting your time
and efforts to this production and
by using tact, skill, and patience,
you made the show go on. In spite
of lack of props, and despite a
couple missed cues, you utilized
what resources were on hand. Your
directorship was really a partner
ship with your cast who wish to
express their admiration for a de
pendable and worthy leader.
Backstage and lining the catwalks is another party, whom we
beckon toward the limelight. This is the Student Council, pro
ducers of the Collegian.
For catching the best scenes at the right moment, the cast and
audience nod approval in the direction of photographer Walter
But before the curtain is lifted again, the company takes time
to thank the entire cast whose names appear on the playbill above,
for a great performance. They wrote their own scripts and worked
together in and out of acts. Some of them will return next season.
To their patrons and audience, extended thanks.
Toast To Highacres
In December a long-awaited project materialized when the
Markle estate, Highacres, was purchased for a bigger and better
Hazleton Center of Penn State. This project has a number of
assets to begin with, a promising freshman class, A-1 faculty,
and energetic leaders. But there is one thing the outgoing sopho
mores hope for that is not evident in the present setup. That is
school spirit. Hazleton Center has the status of a junior college.
Next year it will have a scenic location and buildings to be proud
of. Will these additional resources increase school spirit? Some
are of the opinion that they will, others are not so sure. Here is
a challenge. The sophomores wish you freshmen pioneers good
luck in trying to meet it.
(EDITOR'S NOTE : To the next editor of the Collegian, who
ever he or she might be, we offer this bit of advice for him or her
to remember with every edition :)
When a mechanic makes a mistake, he charges it on the bill
When a doctor makes a mistake, he buries it.
When a judge makes a mistake, it becomes the law.
