the ensuing contest will be as
follows: The teams will be lined
up and each member equipped
with a toothpick, to be held between the teeth, the first member
of each team will receive three

member of the team and so on
down the line. The first team to

An original Christmas skit, the
capers of Saint Nick, and Christmas
Caroling will ring in State's yuletide season in this morning's assembly.
Six "Statesmen" will frolic in a
humorous and entertaining parody
of Charles Dicken's "Christmas Carol." Dramatic performances will be
given by James Crandall, James
Miner, Robert Sullivan, Juniors;
James Conley, Phillip Lashinsky,
Sophomores, and Bruce Hansen,
Robert Sorenson, freshmen. Tears
will well even in the most stoic eyes
when "Bob" Heart-throb Sorensen
appears dramatically in the role of
Tiny Time.
An interlude of Christmas Caroling by the entire assemblage will follow. Peggy Casey, '46, songleader,
will direct the singing while Muriel
Navy, also '46, will accompany the
student body.
The surprise of the program will
be the appearance of a jolly, mysterious Santa Claus. Santa will
deviate from his usual policy by
giving gifts to unsuspecting members
of the student body. He will not
reveal the chosen few until the last
possible moment. He much prefers
to let them tremble with fear and
anxiety.
The Student Council committee in
charge of the program includes:
James Miner, '46, Julia Collier, '47,
and Isabelle Cooper, '48.

Professor Remembered
As Friend, Counselor
State College suffered a severe
loss Friday night with the death of
Dr. Howard Adams Do Bell, Professor of mathematics and one of
State's most outstanding members.
Student memorial services were held
Monday at 2 P.M. in Page Hall while
private services were conducted at
his home In Elsmere.
Colleagues Comment
A friend to students as well as
faculty, Dr. Do Bell was exceedingly
popular with his companions and
associates. Dr. Harry Birchenough,
Professor of mathematics states that,
"In the death of Professor Do Bell
the college has lost one of its hardest
workers, the mathematics department a fine instructor, the students
a very sympathetic teacher and I,
a loyal friend. I have worked with
him for sixteen years and had many
opportunities to observe and appreciate his broad scholarship, his fine
analytical mind, and his sympathetic

attitude toward students and faculty.
It will be difficult to find anyone
