On a day set by the said OHIM
—that day to be sometime before
Chri3tmas vacation — six members at large of OHIM, chosen
for their athletic prowess and
sense of equilibrium, are invited
to meet six TGIF's, chosen on
the same basis. The nature of
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
lifesavcrs which are to be transferred to the toothpick of the next
member of the team and so on
down the line. The first team to
successfully complete the line

The scene of the contest will

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
who can fill the place he has left."
Another associate in the math department, Dr. Ralph A. Beaver, Assistant Professor of mathematics

WAA bowling will begin immediately after Christmas. Teams have

Season Plans
Included in the plans for the season, as announced by Chuck Axelrod, will be contest bouts with La

Academy. He is well-known to
those in last year's fencing classes.

WAA is offering, in fencing, a
chance to indulge in a healthful,
poise-building sport. Chuck hopes
that more girls will take advantage
of the opportunity.
