The Sylvans Club Cabin is open to any Sylvan member and his

Sandeen, room 82, Unit 2 ; or Mike Bintliff, room 4, Unit 1. The
only requirements are that you do not use firearms and that you keep the place clean.
Recently I received a note concerning future publication
of the Knothole, with no name, only three initials and a room
number at the Varsity. While making a mailing list for the Knothole
I found that there was no Forestry major with those initials.
This aroused my curiosity and I checked the room at the Varsity.
There is no such room at the Varsity. Since the letter is apparently
written by a ficticous person I see no reason to publish it or
answer it. If someone cares to write an article for publication
in the Knothole please sign your name. Larry Behrens.
The S.F.A. Soccer team is now organizing and needs players. You
do not have to know how to play soccer to join as sameone will help
you learn. Practice is every Monday and Wednesday at 6:30 PM and
Saturday afternoons, behind the football field.
"The Sylvans Club was organized in 1946 by the students in the School of Forestry. The purpose of the club is to promote fellowship among the students and to increase their knowledge by sponsoring programs which feature speakers well versed in the many phases of forestry. The Sylvans sponsor an Annual Forestry Field Day, hunting and fishing trips, a Christmas Dinner-Dance, and a team for the Association of Southern Forestry Clubs Conclave where they participate in contests displaying professional skills. The club sponsors the Sylvans Scholarship. Membership is open to students of forestry." (From SFA General Bulletin 1968-69)
