CABBIES CAN'T RESIST:
Magnetism of Campus
Lures Student Drivers
By ROMA LIPSKY
The magnetic effect of the Uni-
versity campus holds sway even
during non-academic hours, ac-
cording to two student cab drivers
who report that students are their
"Many of the drivers like to stay
downtown, but I would rather
drive around the campus area,"
Robert Davis, '50Ed., said.
"I KNOW MANY of the stu-
Oents, and I like to talk to them,"
"Students don't tip often, but
*1ey're pretty sociable, which
makes up for it, and they are
good steady customers," accord-
ing to Leslie Smith, '49BusAd.
Both Smith and Davis agreed
that cab driving cuts down their
studying time quite a bit, but Da-
vis says it is "the best job I've

"THE WORST passengers are
penny pinchers, back-seat drivers
and drunks," Smith said, "but I
haven't run into many of that
Davis reports that most of his
customers have been asking
questions about the two-way
radios which were recently in-
stalled in the cabs.
"People want to know how we
can understand them when they
can't," he said.
"The radios make sense to us,
because we get used to them; just
listen to what we can use and
ignore the rest," he explained.

A MERRY CHRISTMAS
TO EVERYONE !
By CRAIG WILSON
Students at Pennsylvania State
College-both white and Negro-
are battling alleged discrimination
in State College, Pa., barbershops.
. After a long campaign, PSC
members of the National Associa-
tion for the Advancement of Col-
ored People called for an "all out"
boycott of barberships by students
Everyone has his troubles with
the Iron Curtain, and Santa Claus
is no exception.
Eino Kainlauri, '50A, of Fin-
land, knows all about St. Nick, but
instead of living at the North Pole,
he says he lives somewhere up
with the Lapps, and when the
Russians invaded Finland, they
occupied his headquarters.
The rotund gentleman still lives
on the Russo-Finnish border, but
Kainlauri thinks that his home,
called Ear Mountain, leans a little
more toward Finland than Russia.
Another Christmas tale Kain-
lauri spins is how deer came to
pull Santa's red sleigh. When the
Finns heard about the three Kings
traveling to Bethlehem on camels,
they were mystified because they
didn't know what camels were.
So, as humans will, they substi-
,tuted their own native animal, the
reindeer, as St. Nick's steeds. In
the old days Christmas presents'
were delivered to good little Finns'
on a buck made of straw.

SIGNAL FOR THE demonstra-
tion was the refusal of barbers to
cut the hair of Mitchell Williams,
track star, according to the As-
"Let your hair grow-culti-
vate democracy; "Jim Crow

Business continued as usual
with customers ignoring the dem-
onstration, the AP said.
HOWEVER, two days later, in
a mass protest .on campus, more
than 300 students rallied on tra-
ditional meeting grounds as pick-
ets continued to stand before the
six barbershops in State College.
Two Penn State economics
professors addressed the group
followed by a mass parade
which police called 'orderly.'

plan to set up a seventh barber-
shop which would not discrim-

go 30 miles to get their hair cut,
"SUCH A SHOP would serve
as a place to which recalcitrant
barbers could direct all prospec-
tive Negro patrons. The job is to
change discriminatory practices
in the establishments which are
already in existence, and this can
not be accomplished by setting up
another establishment which may
in itself become a problem," the
president of the PSC chapter of
He based the picket action on
"effective use" of it in other
schools-mentioning the Univer-
sity of Michigan.
ELSEWHERE, the Amherst

Emphasis will be placed on in-

After two long years of prep-
aration the West Quad's Radio
Club finally saw the culmination
of all 'its efforts to erect a new
rotary beam antenna on top of
the :Quad radio tower
Designed by the club's former
president, Bruce Weinert, '50E,
the antenna was built entirely by
the club's 15 members. Resem-
bling a huge helicopter propel-
ler, it was originally to have been
erected at 1 p.m., last Saturday.
DUE TO ASSEMBLY difficul-
ties, however, the work had to be
delayed until later that night and
the job was finally completed un-
der powerful floodlights well af-
Standing 85 feet above the
sidewalk, the antenna is opera-
ed from the control room of the
fifth floor of Williams House. It
is rotated by a small ratio mo-

to establish contact with stations
all around the world. Formerly

FOUNDED TWO years ago by
Ellsworth B. Holden, the Radio
Club is open to any man living in
the University residence halls.
Most of the club's members
have radio transmitters of their
own and, except for the tower,
they own all of the broadcast-
ing equipment necessary to op-
erate the new antenna.
After receiving permission from
the University to erect the rotary
beam last year, the club began an
intensive drive to raise funds to
finance the construction. A gift of
