For Modern Dance Room In Mary White Hall
Jean Craighead Already
Planning Special Mural
Jean C. Craighead ’4l will paint
a 40-foot mural in the modern
dance room of White Hall depict
ing fields contributing to modern
dance, on .provision that 'the ap
proval of Dean Carl P. Schott and
the architectural committee of the
board of trustees can be obtained.
This will be the first student
mural ever allowed at the College.
It results partly from the interest
displayed.in the Vamum Poor’s
mural in Old Main. Unlike Poor’s
work, Miss Craighead’s mural will
be done in water color.
Miss Marie Haidt, head of the
women’s physical education de
partment, and Miss Jessie Camer
on, assistant professor'of physical
education have already consented.
Tentative sketches showing the
development of modern dance
through the negro, primitive, bal

“Don’t sleep your way through
college activities,” advised Arthur
A. Warnock, dean of men, as he
sent the first of a series of compul
sory freshman mass meetings off to
an enthusiastic start last night in
Schwab auditorium when he spoke
before an over-flowing group of
spirited ’44 Penn Staters.
Speaking on “What Textbooks
Don’t Teach,” Dean Warnock sug
gested that all freshmen decide this
year what activities they would
like to major in during their four
years at State.
“After you are certain that you
are spending enough time and en
ergy on your studies,” continued
Dean Warnock, “select only several
activities in which you are inter
ested, then take an active part in
them. In this way we should be
able to decrease the number of
lone-wolf, anti-social students on
Elinor Weaver'’4l welcomed the
freshmen, lauding them for the ex
ceptional show of class spirit dur
ing this first compulsory mass
meeting since Freshman Week.
Two solos by Elwood Oliver,
state high schol trombone cham
pion, were also featured on the
one-hour program along with or
ganized singing and cheering led
by Prof. Frank Gullo and the
