New Song Tonight
The new ,Penn State song, writ
ten by Fred Waring, a former Col
lege student, will be heard for the
first time at 7 p.m. today when it
will be dedicated on Waring's reg
ular NBC Red Network program
sponsored by Chesterfield Cigar
ettes. Amplifiers will relay the
broadcast to an expected 6,000
students and alumni in Recreation
Hall for the football pep rally.
Waring's pep and alma-mater
songs for colleges have undergrad
uate groups- all over the country
jockeying for a spot on his Friday
smoker edition of Pleasure Time
devoted to college listeners. It was
with a great deal of sentiment,
therefore, that Waring accepted an
invitation to dedicate a song to
his own *alma mater.
Waring explained his interest in
the project this way: "There's
nothing more heartwarming than
a good college tune. They are sung
and sentimentally remembe r
ed when other songs are forgotten.
But, though hundreds of popular
tunes are brought out each year,
little effort has been made to add
to the list of traditional college
pep and alma mater songs. I am
happy to make some contribution
to this grand type of music, par

Lazy men are scorned by women,

customs revealed. When a man
proposes to a girl, she asks two
questions: "Where is your field?"
and "Are you a good worker?"
'Unfortunate,' Says Laich
In a statement issued last night
on the rejection of responsibility
for damages resulting from last
week's pajama , parade, All-College
President Arnold C. Laich '4l said:
"It is unfortunate that this matter
could not be settled as was prev
iously planned. However, the mat

Frosh Don't Know
Way Around Yet
Results of a survey conductpd
by members of Dr. William M.
Lepley's class in experimental
psychology indicated that fresh
men and newcomers to the campus
are rather slow in learning the
locations of various well-known
local institutions.
Among • the questions asked in
the survey, were: Where is the
Rathskeller? the Theta house?
President Hetzel's office? Metzgers
store? and the PSCA office?
The results obtained proved that
46 percent of the men and 13 per
cent of the women know where
the Rathskeller is.
Only two percent of the men
were sure of the location of the
Theta house while 25 percent of
the females know the sorority .lo
Forty-two percent, of the boys
were familiar with President Het
zel's house in comparison to six
percent of the women.
Metzger's impressed 83 percent
of the men and 81 percent of the
new girls were acquainted with
the store.
The PSCA struck a familiar note
in the minds of the newcomers as
78 percent of the men and 66 per
cent of the women knew that it
was in Old Main. -
