The Bryan Dokey Club composed'
of local men in the business and
professional world opened their
first annual spring carnival Mon
day night on the old circus grounds
just off the new Main street con
nection with the old college road,
and the big crowds that have been
in attendance the first three nights
attest the fact that it is one of
the best carnivals to play Bryan
in a number of years. At promptly
6:30 each night the colorful lights
of the big midway are turned on
and the fun and amusement begins.
This show will continue here each
night this week.
The Dokey officials were assured
that the Greater United Shows is
run by Texas showmen of good rec
ord in their home town, Laredo,
where this carnival has been the
feature attraction during the Wash
ington’s Birthday celebration for
the past 17 years.
With many shows and riding de
vices new to Bryan and special
events for the Aggies, the young
sters of the community and their
parents the public is sure to have
a good time
Coca-Cola has a delightful taste
that always pleases. Pure,

the day, make it the pause that

A Battalion Review
Music from the heart that reach
ed the hearts of the audience came
from the stage of Guion hall last
Monday night when the Singing
Cadets appeared in concert as a
presentation of Town Hall.
Their first formal appearance be
fore the cadet corps, the Singing
Cadets, presented a program of
familiar and stirring music for
which they are fast amassing a
reputation. The group has sung
for numerous entertainments and
events on the campus in the few
years of its organization as such,
but until Monday night the group
had never given a concert-length
program on the campus. The en
thusiastic reception at this pro
gram insures numerous future en
Making no pretext at displaying
a fine array of trained voices and
polished choral numbers of a clas
sical nature, the club gave a light
concert of familiar music. Compos
ed of men who sing for the love of
singing, the club makes the listen
ers feel rather than hear their
music. Rousing military songs
which make the listener want to
get up and join the parade and
march, rhythmical popular pieces
creating the urge to dance or pat
the feet, folk songs of this country
and others to which the listener
cannot but hum or whistle to him
self, religious music to grip the
heart—all this is the program the
cadets presented.
Director of the group since its
beginning fours years ago is J. J.
Woolket of the modern languages
department. C. W. Zahn is the club
president, and the accompanist for
the group is Marion Lyle.
The program as presented was
as follows: “Away Down South”
by George Perfect; “Fair Land of
Freedom’ by Gustav Klemm;
“Stouthearted Men” by Sigmund
Romberg; “The Drum” by Archer
Gibson; “Marines Hymn” by L. Z.
Philips; “Dance My Comrades” by
Richard Bennett;; “Adoramus te,
Christe” by W. J. Marsh; “The
Creation” by Willie Richter; two
accordion solos, “In the Mood” and
“Liebestraum” rendered by Pat
Patterson; at this point intermis
The last half of the program
consisted of the following: “Ciel-
ito Lindo,” solo rendered by Gabino
Fajardo; another solo, “La. Cucara-
cha” sung by Xavier Fernandez; a
group of Spanish songs sung by
Gustave Carlsen, O. J. Erlund, Ga-
bina Fajardo, Xavier Fernandez
and Miguel Soto; another group
of songs by a barbershop octet, Bar
ney Martin, Gib Michalk, Henry
Maas, J. 0. Bartlett, L. C. Salm,
G. A. Adams, Lloyd Bailey and
Reynolds Smith; a novelty, “The
Mosquito”; “God Bless America”
by Irving Berlin; “The Spirit of
Aggieland” by Lieut. Col. Richard
J. Dunn; and as a finale, Wool-
ket’s own arrangement of “Taps.”

Singing Cadets Plan
To Make Annual Spring
Tour in About 2 Weeks
Freak Hog Carnival Attraction
Two dances in a three day tour
will feature the annual spring tour
that the Singing Cadets will make
in about two weeks.
On the tour the club will present
programs to high schools and A.
& M. Ex-Student clubs in several
towns over the state, among which
are included Palestine, Tyler, Dal
las and Ft. Worth. Chartered for
the trip are three busses which will
be used to transport some 90 mem
bers who will make the trip.
It was thought that arrange
ments might be made to include
T.S.C.W. in the trip, but no date
could be arranged because the audi
torium was already scheduled for
use on the dates of the trip.
Unless business takes him to
Austin, President Walton will ac
company the Singing Cadets on
their tour as far as Tyler.
The club will be given dances in
Tyler at the country club and also
at Dallas presented them by the
