Dickinsonian, October 21, 1949

A special committee votes unanimously to move towards the establishment of a College radio station (eventually founded as WDCV, which went live in 1962). Student Senate censures The Dickinsonian for "the misrepresentation and lack of facts" printed in the Sep. 30 and Oct. 14 issues. The new column "Brevity" is also criticized for its "slanderous tone." William C. Decker, president of the Corning Glass Company, visits campus for the College's celebration of Pennsylvania Week. The College Choir opens its season with a presentation of "Laudamus" by Prophae. Fraternities are "encouraged" to conduct fire drills in their houses as mandatory drills are scheduled for campus buildings.
