The Westminster College Jake Erhardt International Film Series continues Tuesday, Oct.19, at 7 p.m. in the Sebastian Mueller Theater located in the McKelvey Campus Center with "Babe."

 This 1995 Oscar-winning film about a pig who won't accept the edict "The way things are is the way things are"is both hilarious and heartwarming.

The event, which is part of an eight-film series, is free and open to the public

For more information, contact Dr. Deborah Mitchell, associate professor of English and public relations and coordinator of this event, at (724) 946-7030 or e-mail
