Hazleton Center is to be represented in the Pennsylvania Junior College Basket
ball League this season* The success of the varsity basketball, as in any
college activity, is greatly dependent upon student support YOUR support,
iho Possibilities for a winning team this coming season are brighter this year
chan for aovoral years# The return to Highacres of many of last yca& votcrans
pJ us the enrollment of many outstanding players in the freshman class give the
center a potential team of surprising power. Due to the tine and sizeable
budget expenditure. ncccssaiy to support a Varsity team it is important that the
majority of students actively support and take interest in the team if it is to
be worth the effort.
Hake it a point to express your opinion to your student council member^.
Student Council has requested a budget from each student organization by
Tuesday , October 7* It should be submitted to the president Cal Shipman,
