Successor to the Free Lance,. - Established 1887 VOL. 37—No. 45 PSCA Fund Drive Apace Last Year With $1,115 In . The 1940 PSCA finance drive was exactly even with last year's when returns were compiled last night at. the end of the third day of soliciting. The total had reached $2,715. Because the drive is still below the $3,600 goal it will be extended over the weekend, Williarn B. Bartholomew '4l, chairman, an nounced last night. A check-in will be made tomorrow night and a final check-in on Monday night. Both men and women's groups have reached 69 per cent of the goals set for them, $2,500 for the men and $l,lOO for the women. Usually, women take an early lead and hold it through the drive. The complexion of the campaign this year , also differs from last, Bartholomew said, in that a larger percentage of the persons seen are contributing. However, so far, fewer persons have been contact ed. Complete tabulations on the re turns to date follow: Tues. Wed. Thurs.

Dickson Praises Poor's Murals "Henry Varnum Poor is one of the best fresco painters in Amer ica," said Prof. Harold E. Dickson 'last night when he spoke on "Am erican Mural Painting" in the first of the Liberal Arts Lecture series. That the Land Grant mural' was not complete was - clearly brought out by the , speaker. He told of the innumerable place' in Old Main where additional murals could be painted, by Poor, but" the most necessary factor was lacking— money "In comparison with outlays on other things, the expense of more murals is not sb very formidable," Prof.., Dickson .continued. "Since the . ingredients for • masterpieces are right here. at the College, we should not let lack of money stand in the way." Discussing the Land. Grant mur al, the lecturer showed by means of slides that the central • 'organi-• zation of the fresco works together like a well-oiled machine. Without the columns in Old Mainsetting off and properly supporting the cen tral figures it would be off balance. In addition, Prof. Dickson stated that until the lighting system is completely adjusted, the real effec tiveness of the figures cannot be revealed to the observer.

Pig Won't Caper During NYU Game This little pig wont to market, this little pig stayea home. The latter porker was the one who tried to get onto New Beaver Field tomorrow afternoon. College administrators, fearing that visiting alumni and imports would misinterpret the proposed greased pig race as a direct slap in the face to the SPCA, yesterday literally killed the fat little fel low, 'by • putting thumbs down on his bristling back. According to the • authorities, three main bbstructions kept, the four-legged - slice of bacon 'from thrilling: the ,- crowd tomorrow: • • - little •' fellow,- if -.turn- to l einercy•e r ,. w tuffei.an eni barassing.injury before the howl ing ..crowd, thus turning the fun into folly. 2. That grease from the piggy might .be wiped onto the grass of New Beaver Field,. thus causing embarassment to football players in the second half. 3. That metropolitan newspap ers and the _radio audience might think Penn - State was making a Roman carnival cf its football games. These reasons, said the admin istrators, if - they occurred would offset the spirit of fun propagated by a greased pig race. So the sec ond little piggy •is still up in the College barns, happy, but unex ercised.
