Henderson Hall’s Mother Keeps Up With 88 Sons c c c c c Pressing ties, running errands and sewing on buttons are famil iar chores for the mother of col lege boys. Mrs. Elizabeth Murphey keeps up with 88 young men — none of them her sons. She’s dorm mother of Hender son Hall, the Aggie athlete’s home away from home. Mrs. Murphey calls her job “wonderful”. “Pm very much at home here,” she smiled. “It’s great to work with young people. They keep me busy and interested in life.” At present, the hazel-eye bru nette is preparing to take in new roomers. The football play ers will be heading home next week. Most of the 92 beds will be filled by summer school students, including high school teachers on Sociology students from six Texas colleges and universities have banded into a Texas Student Sociological Association. Membership in TSSA is aimed at all undergraduate sociology majors in the state. Representa tives of Texas A&M, Texas, Bay lor, Sam Houston State, East Tex as State and Texas Woman’s Uni versity met recently to establish guidelines and elect officers. Rumaldo Z. Juarez, A<fcM sen ior from Robstown, was elected president. Other officers include vice president James Hance, East Texas; extension chairman Bob Welsh of A&M, sophomore of Col lege Station and secretary Eva Ashworth, Sam Houston. Faculty advisor is Dr. William P, Kuvlesky, sociology professor of the Agricultural Department of Economics and Sociology. campus for National Science Foundation Institutes. Tree-top tall teachers hunting oversized beds would be wise to check with Mrs. Murphey. Hen derson Hall has five 90 inch-long beds. A seven-footer would be able to stretch out comfortably on these. The remaining beds are 80 inches long, eight inches longer than normal. “FOOTBALL players are get ting bigger,” Mrs. Murphey not ed. “But you can’t always go on size. Take little Charlie Riggs (A&M’s pint-sized sophomore quarterback). He’s a dandy. And remember George Hargett ? He didn’t weigh 150 pounds soaking wet. But there’s not a better football player or one who had more heart than he did.” “The purpose of TSSA is to bring students studying sociology together and promote understand ing of contemporary sociology and its uses,” Juarez said. TSSA functions include a mem bership drive mailing, scholar ships, publication of undergradu ate articles, annual convention, directory and awards. The president indicated the organization will promote high school sociology instruction. Chemistry Lecture Scheduled Friday A Chemistry Colloquium here Friday features a Chevron Re search Laboratory scientist. Dr. Roger S. Porter of Orinda, Calif., will lecture on “Physical Chemistry of Liquid Crystals” at 4 p.m. in Room 231 of the Chem istry Building. Mrs. Murphey doesn't get much opportunity to practice her nurs ing profession. She trained at Baylor Hospital in Dallas after attending Rusk Junior College. “Oh, I take their temperatures sometimes before sending them to the trainer, Billy Pickard,” she remarked. “And I fill their ice- bags when they have a lump on the head. Mostly, I just give them tender, loving care like I would my own sons.” John Pat Murphey, her son, at tended A&M and now works in Humble’s production department in Houston. A NATIVE OF Troup, Mrs. Murphey played basketball in high school and has always been a football fan. She watched all the Aggie scrimmages this spring and thinks A&M is “really going places this fall.” “Coach Stallings has a way about him that instills pride in the boys,” she said thoughtfully. “They take pride in what they are doing.” Like other mothers, Mrs. Mur phey listens to the boys’ prob lems when they want to talk. “I’M A GOOD listener” she commented. “I try to give them an attentive ear. My job has its rewards, but it has disappoint ments, too. It hurts me to see a boy quit the team. It takes a lot of hard work and heart to stay with it. “These boys are the cream of the crop,” she beamed. “They inspire me. A number of them go to church regularly. They help to renew my faith in young people.” The U. S.
