This advertising is a cue to all who plan to attend that the ball will be a strictly informal affair. • The music of the Campus Owls will provide a contrast to the set ting with just the right amount of swing and sweet rhythm that has made them popular on cam pus. Tickets at one dollar per couple can be purchased from any mem hpr of the Agriculture Student Council and will also be sold at the door tomorrow night. The price also includes checking.

In former years some of the trees were damaged and quite a few bulbs broken by students evidently filled with too much holiday spirit. It is hoped that this year there will be no damage done to the decorations which represent the combined efforts of town mer chants, the Ladies Auxiliary of the American Legion, the Alpha Fire Company, and the West Penn Power Company. 1111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111 h Foresters In U.S. Service A recent alumni survey by the department of (forestry revealed that at least half of the forestry graduates are employed in Gov ernment services. The report cov ered 933 graduates, including graduates of the Pennsylvania State Forest School at Mont Alto, which was merged with the for estry department of the College in 1929. the sophomore class, also accept ed the challenge. He suggested that Tribunal set up a prize, such as the removal of a custom if the Frosh win, or a longer continua tion of the custom if the Sopho mores triumph. Thus the bucket is shifted into the hands of W. Lewis Corbin, chairman of Tribunal. Corbin says preparations are being made for the tug-of-war, but nothing is definite as yet. It will probably be held inside of the next two weeks, he added. PRICE THREE CENTS Petitions, Pictures Due Tomorrow Noon The small guns of Penn State's political front began blazing Tues day night when John B. Cramp, Independent, and Paul 0. Frey, Campus, were nominated by their respective parties as freshman presidential candidates to be elect ed on Monday, December 16. Flashing into •concerted forma tion behind their political stand ard bearers, both parties approved their slates with hardly any dis agreements, and proceeded to out line plans for their campaign stumping. Other officers named on the freshman slate were: vice presid ent, Paul M. Heberling (Independ ent) and Robert L. Walters, Jr. (Campus); secretary, David G. Keeney (Campus) and Phyllis R. Watkins (Independent); treasurer, Betty R. Broderick (Campus) and Larry T. Chervanek (Independ ent); historian, Helen E. Dodd (In dependent) and E. Clint Stubbe (Campus).

At the same_ time, party plat forms and pictures of candidates must accompany the petitions, which can be .handed in at Stu dent - Union or I. Leonard Krouse '42, chairman of the Fresh man Elections Committee. Coincident with the signing of petitions, Krouse war n e d all freshman politicians that.they can not influence signers by stating that signatures on petitions also entails a pledge to support that particular party. Any party found . circulating such information will be heavily punished by the Elections Com mittee, Krouse said. 1111111 1111 1 1111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111111 M Late News Bullefins inumumuilimmummuniuniiminummummutur Athens—Reports came through from the Greek capitol last night confirming the capture of tle city Pogredetz from the Italians. The communiques told of further Greek advances into Albania as the Grecian mountain forces drove within 15 miles of Albridon in northern Albania. The Greeks bombed Portoeda terrifically yesterday and the Ital ians were reported to be in hasty retreat on all fronts. As winter has set in around the Greek mountains and those in Albania, the Italians are retreating over icy mule trails and are being forced to abandon their supplies. Berlin—The war in Germany was refreshed last night as RAF bombers hurled destruction from the air at two large German towns in the midland. The towns, near the Rhine river, were given a ter rific bombing and several blast furnaces were destroyed. London would not confirm the report that the huge bridge span ning the Rhine river and by which the Germans nre transporting most of their supplies over, was de molished. Toe RAF fliers contin ued their flight of destruction as they swept over northern France and struck at Dunkirk. They lash ed out at airdromes owned by the Germans.
