THE WILLIAM PENN CHARTER SCHOOL BULL, FRIDAY, JUNE 3, 1960

FACULTY

Let's get this straight once and for all. There are some things which a school of the caliber such as has Penn Charter will not put up with these things. I'm going to be perfectly clear on this matter, aren't I? Starting tomorrow (and when I say tomorrow I don't mean the day after tomorrow, because that would be Sunday and I don't work), all contestants in a varsity sport will be excused after short recess for taping, lunch, and rest period. It's unfortunate, but this privilege will be revoked if they fail to win. The administration is firm on this matter, and does not feel that it is overemphasizing athletics.

The annual faculty fun and games night will feature a film taken at our annual retreat entitled "From Here to Sodom," followed by a twenty-minute short of Milton's "Paradise Lost."

SENIOR SCHOOL

Come to Valley Green this evening and watch the annual naval battle and submarine race between Clarke and Co., Schnabel and Co., and others. Frazier is favored to sin.

Congratulations to all who won yesterday's track meet: Allman, 29 1/4; Rulon, 6"; Haverford, 12.7834 1/2; Wriggins, -6.

Congratulations to Ben Hur who won the annual chariot race. A close second in this famous Grand Prix du Germantown was Alvin of Augustus, who took nineteen points and one pedestrian. Also-rans were J. Churchman, two points, T. Wriggins, minus 6 points.

Congratulations to Allan Schneider who turned in the entire student body for eating at 1:15. The rule says "eating only at short recess."
