Dickinsonian, November 5, 1954

It is Homecoming Weekend and the 100 anniversary of the birth of John Philip Sousa. The halftime entertainment for the Homecoming Game will be a Sousa tribute highlighting some of his most famous marches with many piccolo solos and displays of national symbols. There will also be a pep rally Friday on Biddle Field for Homecoming, an alumni luncheon on Saturday afternoon and the dance later that night featuring a 12 piece band. There is a push for an alumni organization that will support the athletic program at Dickinson. Students find it to be weak at the moment and hope that alumni will be able to provide the funds to better the athletes. It is decided that rushing for men's fraternities will be delayed one semester for now on; rush will take place in the spring. Two girls from the field hockey team were chosen for the All-Southern Pennsylvania field hockey team based on their previous performances in recent games.
