The manner of selecting mem bers of the society has been chang ed this year from the system used in previous years. The system now in effect provides that the top 8% of the seniors in each school and the top 4% of the juniors in each school become members in the society if they have no F’s. The percentage requirements are based on the number of grade points. Heretofore members in the Scholar ship Honor Society have been made up of the top 75 juniors and sen iors in each class, but the new sys tem makes the group more select than in the past. The Scholarship Honor Society, which was founded to give students recognition for outstanding schol arship, meets every second and fourth Thursday nights. Officers of the organization, besides Guy, include D. B. Varner, vice-presi dent, and Carl Schnieder, secretary- treasurer. The next meeting of the organ ization will be held January 25 in the Civil Engineering lecture room. garian romance. Alexander Nevsky, historical drama of 13th century.

Moore, of the college dairy husbandry depart ment, and Mr. Hansen addressed the afternoon session on “Butter Audit” and then the rest of the afternoon was given over to labor atory practice with staff special ists leading the work. The annual banquet was held in Sbisa Hall Wednesday evening at 7 o’clock with Prof. Charles Shepardson, head of the college dairy husbandry department, serv ing as toastmaster and M. E. Mc- Murray, manager, Texas Dairy Products Association, Fort Worth, delivering the principal address. The course continues through this morning. Football Debate— (Continued from page 3) debates, Pres. John G. Bowman as serted that recent; sports staff up heavals at Pitt were made because “we want most of all that foot ball be a game for students. I want to keep the game on a truly amateur basis here.” However, simon-pure football is not receiving the support of all students, for at many colleges un dergraduates have begun move ments to subsidize players so that losing streaks may be stopped. At the University of Buffalo, the stu dent newspaper asked the college to give ten tuition scholarships a year to men who would be the nucleus for winning grid teams. Most drastic move in the direc tion of non-subsidization of play ers in any form was made by a conference of 30 New England col leges. The code adopted at this conference prohibits coaches from contacting future players and from speaking at high school meetings, Football Team Feast Scheduled Tonight Frank Simon will give a ban quet this afternoon beginning at 5:30 at the “rural room” in honor of the football team. Simon has been one of the lead ing supporters of Coach Homer Norton’s charges ever since he has been in business around the col lege, and has the best picture lay out of the football players to be seen at A. & M. It is one that includes some 25 players’ signed pictures around a large squad pic ture. Invitations have already been made and Simon has announced that the supper will be over in time for the boys to attend the Aggie-Rice basketball game, which will begin right after the fresh man game between the two schools. and it makes mandatory the keep ing of public records of financial aid received by all athletes at mem ber schools. This record must show that an individual receives financial aid only from those up on whom he is naturally dependant for support—otherwise he will be declared ineligible. Meanwhile, the National Collegi ate Athletic Association side stepped the entire subsidization is sue by ruling at its national con vention that no aid should be given college athletes except pay for legitimate work. The resolution added that workers must put in their time honestly. Of course, violations would call for drastic action against disobeying institu tions. Despite all this talk for amateur football, all those directly and in directly concerned are watching with great interest the progress that southern schools are making with open-and-above-board schol arships to athletes that pay board, room, tuition and a little spend ing money.

Peterson, famed bil liard expert of St. Louis, Missouri, paid his second visit to the A. & M. campus Monday for three dem onstration in the Y.M.C.A. lobby. The first exhibition was held at 10 a. m., the second at 2 p. m. and the third at 7 p. m. to near capac ity audiences each time. Peterson, who has taken an ac tive part in the promotion of bil liards in the United States for the past 45 years, came to A. & M. from Loyola University and from here went to San Antonio for an exhibition at Randolph Field. He is scheduled for a nation-wide tour in the interest of intercollegiate billiards. Intercollegiate billiard contests conducted by telegraph have been promoted largely due to his ef forts, a.nd are now being sponsored by the Association of College Un ions headed by H. E. Pride of Iowa State University. The aim of this organization is to divide the Unit ed States into four sections, and to -THURSDAY, JAN. 18, 1940 conduct intersectional and intra sectional matches to determine the national college champion. Peterson lends variety to every exhibition in the same appearance by using different shots and stress ing different fine points of the game. Further development in intercol legiate billiards is the formation of a women’s division. Hlinois University launched the first women’s team last year. Peterson began his series of an nual billiard appearances in 1931 at Wisconsin University in an ef fort to revive the game, which he says began to die during the depression.
