Dickinsonian, December 16, 1949

The Board of Trustees meets in Philadelphia and okays plans to establish a College radio station, creating a Committee on Radio to handle the task. The Board also approves plans to enlarge the stage and dressing rooms at Metzger Hall, announces that progress on a new girls' dormitory will be made public soon, and establishes the Agnes Sterrett Woods Prize, to be awarded to the female student who submits the best short story or essay. The Doll Dance, sponsored by several fraternities, is scheduled for the night of this publication and will include five skits and a performance by the Claude Bowers combo. The Dickinsonian republishes New York Sun editor Francis B. Church's famous 1897 response to a girl who wrote the newspaper asking if Santa Claus is real.
