Assembly Hall Prices Advance To Twenty Cents New Federal Tax Causes Price Increase; Must Be Paid by All Pass-Holders Admission prices at the Assem bly Hall advanced yesterday from 15 to 20 cents for week-day shows and 25 cents for Saturday night shows because of the new federal defense tax that went into effect yesterday, M. L. Cashion of the YMCA announced. The new federal tax includes all admissions from 10 cents upward with the government receiving ten percent of the admission price. The price on the YMCA privilege card will remain the same as in past years. The YMCA will absorb the new tax on the privilege cards.

Puerto Rico Club Organizes for Year The Puerto Rico A. & M. Club held its first meeting of the year Tuesday night. Julio E. Trigo was elected president; George Villamil, vice president; and Russel T. Cook, secretary-treasurer at the meet ing. Although only 17 boys are here at A. & M. this year as compar ed with 28 who were here last year, the club has an enthusias tic membership. The draft and the fact that several Puerto Ricans were offered jobs were the causes for the drop in club membership, Cook said. Plans are in the offing to form an ex-Aggie club in Puerto Rico. Colorado County Students Hold Meet The first Colorado County A. & M. Club ever to be organized in their meeting Monday night elected F. P. Kallina, president; Henry Hasse, vice-president; Joe Lichnov- sky, secretary-treasurer; and Snip Wells, reporter.

It is the latest creation in the Aggie club line. It is truly a legitimate organization with all intentions to the good and every thing on the level. The membership is composed solely of student janitors employ ed the Building and College Utili ties Department as office, dormi tory or N.Y.A. janitors. C. K. Jones was elected as pres ident of the club. Charles Bode was made vice president; Bert Hall, secretary; and W. F. Breihan, re porter. E. N. Holmgreen and W. R. Horsley are the faculty advis ors of the group. As the goal of the club it is hop ed to create a feeling of fellowship and cooperation among the stu dents on the janitor force and if possible to sponsor social events for the 180 student janitors. The name “18-23” was chosen because that represents the range of salaries which club members re ceive for their various duties. Thumbers Cards May be Obtained From Payne or Y The YMCA has announced that the Aggie thumbers cards are now available at either the Y desk or at A1 Payne’s office. These cards have been the source of many com pliments to the school and create a great deal of good feeling be tween Aggie hitch-hikers and mo torists. The cards give the Aggie’s name, his home and school address, and his organization. They express thanks for the ride, invite the mo torist to visit him in his home or at A. & M., and give the Aggie hitch-hiker’s philosophy. This philosophy states, “Realizing that the person who favors me by giv ing me a ‘lift’ is doing so at his own risk and that his consideratioh in helping a student is the mark of a true sportsman, it is my pleas ure to show him every courtesy and render any service possible. It is an opportunity for me to up hold the true Aggie Spirit.” CLUBS NOTICE All requests for allocations from the Student Activities fund should be filed with the Student Activities Office, 126 Administration Building by October 10.

Red Nichols Orchestra Comes Here As First Big-Name Band Red Nichols and his famous or chestra will play for a corps dance after the Town Hall program in Sbisa Hall, October 10, Alden Ca they, social secretary of the sen ior class announced yesterday. This will mark the first time that a big-name dance orchestra has appeared at Aggieland during the fall semester for a corps dance and promises the A. & M. social season a good start, Cathey said. Nichols and his orchestra will be here the week-end that the foot, ball team plays NYU in New York so that everyone will be able to attend the dance. Ranked by George Simon, music critic for Metronome, as the “sur prise sensation of 1941,” Nichols is considered as tops where im mortals of jazz are concerned. Downbeat, favorite among music ian 1 ’ newspapers, states that Nich ols climbed to fame ten years ago with more than able assistance of his celebrated “Five Pennies.” Perhaps his attribute is the in genious arrangement of danceable tune — a type of music that is fresh and distinctive. Saturday night, October 11, a juke box prom similar to those held during summer school will be held in the annex of Sbisa Hall. The Town Hall program will be given in Guion Hall and all student tickets sold for the season will be good for the performance.
