A meeting of the newly organ ized presidents was held in Old Main last night for a discussion of organization plans a d for a dis cussion of a Poverty Ball to be held before Christmas. Cabinet also amended the list of complimentary dance tickets to provide for the managers and cap tains of all officially-recognized College sports. This means the addition of rifle, skiing, and hoc key. A motion to have several women's leaders added to the list was defeated, the 12 men unani mously ,opposed, the four women Cabinet members all in favor of the motion. Cabinet was told by Lewis C. Cavalier '4l, that it was impossi ble to have a student recreation room in Old Main because the room suitable, 301, is needed for an accounting office. 111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111 Below Grades Lisfs Due In Deans' Offices today Today is the deadline for be low grades from class instruc tors, the deans' offices of all the Schools have announced.

Engagements at such outstanding ballrooms as those of the William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, the New Yorker in New • York, and the Book-Cad illac Hotel in Detroit have pushed him into the ranks of the "name bands." Chester is trying to prove to the country as a whole that his band deserves a top rating, before attempting to "crack" Broadway. With the "Cinderella band of the year" supplying the music and a large number of dancers expect ed, Soph Hop promises to be a success. Tickets are on sale at the Athletic Office in Old Main for $3.85.

Lewis Corbin '4l, Tri bunal head, if he knew why he was there, answered, "I've got a sneakin' suspicion." His assign ment is to get the signatures of all Mortar Board members and also sweep up the campv.s of dirty pol itics with his broom. Complete' in war paint, feath ers, Indian blanket and war club, Albert Miller will stalk the cam pus declaring, "Little Chief Red Man—Heap Bid Penatly." If you're ever feeling low just stop Kenneth Weimer, "Campus Pepper-Uoner," and he will glad ly give you a short snappy pep talk on Penn State's fine weather.
