Hoffman, registrar of Pennsylvania State - College, reported last week, He said that during the past five years graduates from Pittston High School who have gone to Penn State have made a record in placing their high school in the upper half of the high, schools of the State. Practically every high school In Pennsylvania sends students to ' Penn State, the registrar explained, and ' In this five-year study it has been found that the rating attained by a school has .changed but little -from yea-to year., Students admitted from Pittston High School have ranked consistently above the average, and on ! this basis the college will admit on . certificate students from Pittston who were graduated In the upper , three-fifths of their class. Penn i State began granting general admissions to the Freshman Class on Saturday. ' "In encouraging graduates of i Pittston High School who finished in the upper three-fifths of their class to continue, their education, the Pennsylvania State College believes that it is expending State . monev in the most economical and " efficient - manner,--Jteglstrar Hoff-. man said. "Students or this grade from Pittston have proved themselves to be of college calibre. From our past experience we believe that they are capable of pursuing ' a college course with credit ' to themselves and with profit to the Commonwfalth."
