Damage To Decorations
The State College Commerce
Club, which is sponsoring a
Christmas street decorations
project, has requested the co
operation of all students in pre
serving the Christmas trees
and bulbs which will decorate
the street.
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.

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
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.
