Guardsmen (Continued from page 1) “that our military set-up at A. & M. would make is improbable that we have many guardsmen.” Interpretation of the Joint Reso lution in respect to ordering into active military service the National Guard indicates that collegians who are also Guardsmen will not be exempt under the exemption noted above in Section five, article (f). Section five of the Joint Reso lution reads, “All laws and parts of laws in conflict herewith are hereby suspended to the extent that they may be in conflict with any provision hereof.” This( of course, nullifies the exemption of colle gians listed in Section five, article (f) of the Burke-Wadsworth Act. A. & M. Reaction Since the passing of the Burke- Wadsworth Act there has been con siderable question in the minds of Aggies as to what their fate would be. Student reaction has been strongly opposed to a peace time draft which would force students to leave their studies. However, although the nation’s collegians are exempted from mil itary conscription until next July, they will be required to register along with other groups. Registra tion dates will be announced in the near future. War Department of ficials have indicated. The Battalion is asking all mem bers of the Texas National Guard who are enrolled at A. & M. to notify the newspaper in order that a reasonably accurate accounting may be made in advance as to how many cadets the College will lose in November. ART AND PHOTOGRAPHY STAFF MEETING There will be a called meet ing of the Art and Photography departments of The Battalion to discuss plans for the next magazine which comes out Oct ober 2. Old members are to attend, this meeting if at all possible, and new members will be welcomed. The meeting will be held in room 122 Adminis tration building immediately af ter yell practice. Col.

These broadcast, featur ing services rendered to the people of Texas by A. & M. College, would be distributed to radio sta tions throughout the state. In addition, whenever the Col lege takes part in any important broadcast or when prominent speak ers visit the campus, the recorder will afford a means of adding a vivid type of historical document to the College archives. Another new piece of equipment at WTAW is a boom stand to be used in the presentation of studio programs. “This may seem a simple matter,” Rosser said, “but you’d be surprised now much difference it makes to a program if you can put your mike anywhere you want it.” The boom stand is expected to be particularly useful in solving production problems attendant up on the broadcast of A. & M.’s por tion of the Texas School of the Air. This program will originate at the College one day a week and will also be carried over TQN.

You will always know what to expect as Mickey twists and squirms beyond the bounds of pru dence and good taste. The story follows the famous formula of all the other Hardy classics. Both Mickey and the Judge get in some kind of mess and have to take a trip somewhere to straighten things out. Celia Parker, the daughter of the family is also having boyfriend trouble, but co incidence of course sends the whole group to the same place. After ups and downs and a little fun, things straighten out and the family re turns to the little town of Carvel and Ann Rutherford and the gang. It’s the same old stuff, dressed up with different gag lines and twisted a little tighter, and although Roon ey is the main show, he overdoes it sickeningly. Faithful little Judy Garland gives Rooney her adoring hero worship in spite of mawkish tactics.
