desks have been added, and' we now have- two
separate telephone lines, both reached: through-the

Our files are- our biggest boast. Where- we- had'
none before; we now have • surprisingly complete
records of the- College’s activities. The job isn’t
complete, but l it’s-' progressing. We’re- still look
ing'. for additions- and stand- ready to accept any
help- we can get:

which-means; that I must get back into my well
worn. grove and' begin churning- out gossip, dirt,
and in: general throw a, little mud' up and down,
What. 1 want to know is' how I am supposed, to
write" my usual stuff, when; there- isnlt anyone in
town except' me, Doggy, and: a 100(X-odd (L do;
mean- odd) psychologists. U Have been in every
ditch,.behind. every telephone pole; in every aparf
; mail,.under half the beds in town since Sunday,.
. but there just ain’t no dirt:
You know- why? Because, when there ain’t, no
students- in. town there ain’t no- dirt And yet the
editor of this illustrious publication-, tells -me that,
if L don’t beat out a colyum this issue,- E will: auto
matically be- demoted! to chief l typewriter cleaner
and- therefore- lope- half of the half per cent re
muneration which T now receive;
Anyway there ain’t' no dirt.
The- WGTU will 1 no doubt be- glad to; learn that
Jimmy Sturgis,, grand': mogul -of the. Drive-In
Theatre; is great, friends with Richard' Mlllinder,.
confessed: murderer of Faye Gates, as a result of
prompt WCTU" action, this-summer, Sturgis a j.un
ior, beat' the; Sunday movie law. (up.< for. local, re
peal in November)-by. charging Sunday- patrons of
his theatre for parking and not for the movie; but
the- WCTU stepped; in and: stopped' that. The pen-.
alty is' $5O- or not more than; ID days in jail.. Bur
gess EeitZell' gave Sturgis three days- in. jail, and
called'it a day himself. Net. result was- that Stur
gis colled- his- heels: in Bellefonte; for *72 hours
along, with Millinder who was in: tor-the; summer.
Note on State College. Improvements
One of' the first things-1 noticed: was- that the
