Student Union
Is Activities Hub
The hub of all the extra-curricu
lar activities at Penn State—that’s
the Student Union.
Endeavoring to serve as a co
ordinating agency for all activities
on the campus, the Union has
proven itself to be an invaluable
student organization since its in
ception in 1930.
Performing its work through the
media of recommendations to its
component groups, the Student
Union is not supervisory and has
no legislative power. Representa
tives from each of the major ac
tivities comprise the membership
of the Union Board, although ev
ery student engaging in activities
is automatically a member.
In its eight-year history, the
.Union has undertaken and com
pleted many projects which could
not be properly handled by indi
vidual groups.

Ml School Has
Treasure House'
Of Precious Gems
A veritable “treasure house” of
precious and semi-precious gems
has been assembled by the School
of Mineral Industries for use in
teaching students how, to evaluate
and identify precious jewels—and
to guard against misrepresenta
Diamonds, sapphires, emeralds,
and rubies are among the best
known precious jewels in the col
lection, which includes both cut
and uncut materials representing
about 75 different species and va
rieties of gems. Semi-precious
exhibits include opals, peridotes,
tourmalines, spinels, and various
silica minerals. There" are also
replicas of the famous diamonds
of the world.
. Used in a new cultural course'
introduced this year, the gems are
examined from both an orna
mental and an industrial view
point, and- are compared in his
torical importance and relative
value. Colors, cutting designs,
and other features are demon
strated in the laboratory.
So that students may guard
against deception in purchasing
gems, they are required to per
form tests on various gems to es
tablish their true identity and
value. Professors Arthur P.
Honess and William M. Myers,
who are in charge of the course,
feel that students will be better
able to judge the superficial ap
pearance of stones if they know
their physical background.
Men students' have enrolled, in
the course in greater number than
women students, but a growing
enrollment of coeds is expected in
view of the inherent feminine" in
terest in jewelry.
