Parties For 'Kids'
Although it's unkngwn to many
students on the campus, frater
nities have played a big part in
Penn State's Christmas spirit in
Some organizations donated
money, still others distributed
Christmas baskets to needy fam
ilies, but the fraternities deve
loped the plan to play host to a
number of children just before
each Christmas holiday.
Selecting children who would
probably benefit most from these
parties, each house assumed its
part of the plan by inviting a
number of children, usually six or
eight, to share a holiday dinner
and festive program arranged
particularly to entertain the
In _many instances, presents
and toys were wrapped and given
to the children, since receiving
gifts tends to, make Christmas
complete in young minds.
All indications show that a sim
ilar plan will be conducted again
this year. However, it is prob
able that some new program may
be substituted for the usual fra
ternity Christmas parties.
