I have always loved Christmas and start playing

carols right after Halloween. So it wasn’t unusual that

my roommate and I were discussing dorm decorations

as we walked back to campus from Williamsport late

one afternoon. Passing by Old Main, we noticed a

forlorn evergreen tree thrown on the ground behind

the building. We immediately “topped” about three

feet for our room.

The following evening, we were aghast as we

entered the student union building and noticed a very

tall, fully decorated Christmas tree ... missing its top!

We had no idea that was its intended use, and kept the

secret for the next 50 years!

We didn’t look like tree thieves — we were involved

in many campus activities, and I was even named

Chieftain that year. We just couldn’t “come clean,”

although no one asked.

I hadn’t recalled this for 50 years. Now my three

children and their children have been told and they

kid me about respecting their trees!
