Such questions as these are asked over unci over again and usually one must must search for the answers among the labyrinth of posters, anouncements, and clippings. A solution could be u weekly bulletin listing In advance "all" the purticulur activities, what time they commence, and where they meet.

Gents, Finks, KB Press Leaders With the Intramural football season half-way over Potter and St. Mary's Angels lead the "A" League while Van Derzee leads the "B" League. KB and the Finks won in their last outings to tighten up the , ,, , , , . , . race for the leagues leadership. Rain and mud made Wednesday's , . , _, games close and slow-moving. The opening kick-off accounted for the flrst score, in the VanDerzee-SLS game, as Moiiaruy grabbed the ball near his own goal lino and when he tried to evade the charging line of SLS he stepped into his own end zone where he was tagged for a safety. VanDerzee pushed over a second period score on a short pass, Wiley to Morlarity, to go ahead of SLS: 6-2. KB Takes to the Air After the VanDerzee touchdown the game was almost a standstill due to Uic slippery field and wet ball. While VanDerzee and SLS were battling in their close game KB edged out the Ham and Eggers: 14-13. With Sy Fersh in the backfield KB took to the air time and time again and scored its touchdowns on passes to Milk and Waxman. The extra points were added on passes to Berger and Milk. The Ham and Eggers struck back with touchdowns by Ludlum and Duncombe. O'Brien made the first extra point, but I lie Eggers failed to convert after their second TD and that decided the outcome of the g, uiu , Potter Club romped over KDR by the tune of 32-0 on Tuesday. ScorIng 25 points in the first half, Potter ran into a re-juvenated opponent in the second half. This half saw a tightly fought contest with Potter scoring but once. This was on a run by Carter for his second TD of the game. Warden also crossed into pay-dirt twice and Lansky scored the other TD. Also on Tuesday the Angels nosed out the Finks M-13.

The game was hotly contested from the opening whistle to the final play. Jim Warden started the fireworks by scoring a goal early in the period. Throughout the rest of the first period both teams displayed brilliant defensive play. Midway in the secc.ui period, E E P's offensive clicked again as Jim Jlusto scored a goal from a few yards out. Again the Scrubs fought uphill and also scored at close of the second period. Jim Marsiglio was awarded a penalty kick, which turned into a well-executed play with Nolan Powell doing the scoring. Second Half Tight The final two periods saw both teams display a tight defense with the Scrubs dominating play in the third period.

The Commuters' Club president raced madly down the.hall in lower Draper to see if any work-iivlng - students had signed .the committee list for the Soc-hop. She blinked here eyes and was amazed to find the lists, particularly that of cleanup committee, complete;. She .."wondered and still the wonder grew" for the clean-up committee is the lowest, most unsophisticated, unpleasant task at State College. Then she realized that this was the work of the same pencil-happy student who had signed up his unknowing friends, Herman Schmbe, and Herbert Cream for WAA lifesaving. He also had signed George Washington Warzello and Roscoe Van Boulder (dam, that Is) for cheerleading, badminton, and checking hair ribbons at the next sorority open house. Really . . . what next?

By EVELYN WOLFE Margaret Webster, Shakespeare's greatest asset since the quill pen, has turned traveling salesman by bringing "Hamlet" and "Macbeth" to campus stages across the nation and Canada. As a result of this lour, students who wouldn't otherwise sec products of the legitimate theater will have an opportunity n-t oulv to do so, but to help back stage In setting up the prepared se . and doing general jobs to help produce the show. Expanding the theater has been an idea of Miss Webster's for the past ten years. Her experience In producing "Twelfth Nltrht" for Maurice Evans and Helen H a y s , brought her top honors, and since thai time, diffusion of the theater has been one of her prime Interests. Interested in finding the public reaction to \yr Idea of a tour by bus to collides of flic land, she sent out over five hundred notices of her plan and was overwhelmed with favorable replies.

In tlie three centuries since the Immortal Bard created his works, no one has brought such a vibrant quality of living reality into them as has Miss Webster. In cutting "Hamlet" to two and one-half hours, she mourned every cut word. The finished production is as complete as Lime and facilities allow and will provide tile best entertainment for the greatest number of people. Perhaps it is the spirit of her mother, the late Dame May Whiffy, who shouted "I cannot make two armies from eight people—I must, fare "lie more!", that makes Miss Webster what she is. Perhaps It is the atmosphere in which site has grown up, or perhaps it is just a natural love to provide excellent entertainment, but State will be given an opportunity to judge for itself when Miss Webster and her troupe bring one of the season's delights to Page Friday afternoon and evening.

Dewey, for trie second time in a State College NEWS straw vote, was given preference in the Presidential Poll. Governor Dewey's margin of victory over his chief opponent, Presioent Harry S. Truman, was in a ratio of almost 3:2 of the total vote, which included 816 students, or 62.7% ol the Student Body, 21.9% of whom are eligible voters. This figure is more than double the 10.3 % wno were qualified to vote in 1944. Unlike the 1944 race, however, this election was not close to the point of being decided by only a lew votes. The actual figures were: Dewey, 396; Thomas, 71; Truman, 279; Wallace, 62; and Thurmond, (by writt-in), 2. These figures indicate ;hat 48.5% of the student body or 45.2% of the voters rae in lavor of Dewey, while 34.2% of the termer group or 33.5% of the voters are hopeful for Truman. Republican Traditionally The vote this year is in keeping with the tradition that State College is Republican in its politics. Significant, however, is the fact that Mr. Norman Thomas this year polled 8.7% of the total vote, or 13.4% of those of the qualified voters. In 1944 Mr. Thomas could garner only 3 votes out of the 793 which were cast. Only once in the twenty-four years that the poll has been conducted at State has a Democratic candidate for President been chosen by the Student Body. This was in 1936 when the Association chose tlie late Franklin D. Roosevelt by a very narrow margin, tout he went on to win at the national polls by an unprecedentedly large majority. The Republicans returned to favor in Students Polls, however, in 1940 and 1944 by narrow majorities each time. It is evident that straw polls at State have very little bearing on the national elections, however, and by all indications this year a Truman victory would be predicted, since polls in previous years have acted almost invariably as negative indicators. Forum W i l l Sponsor Election Night Party Forum of politics is sponsoring an Election night party Tuesday in tlie Commons, from 8 p. m. until 11 p. m. Girls may stay until 11 p. m.. but they must return to their respective dormitories immediately afterwards, according to Marion Furlong and Margaret Seaman, Seniors, CoChairinen of the affair. Miss Seaman states that the party is being held to observe Election Day, and also to bring students of State College together to hear eleeti6n returns. These election returns will be pasted during tlie evening. There will be dancing and bridge games during the course of the evening, and refreshments will be served. Joy Simon and Molly Mulligan, Seniors, are in charge of publicity, and Seymour Fersh '49, will handle the arrangements. No admission will be charged. The chnperones for the evening will be Mr. Frederic W. Weed, Instructor In Political Science, Mr. Raymond Howard. Instructor in Economics, and Miss Frances Cummtngs, Instructor in History.
