Texas university students who hissed moving pictures of Brig. Gen. L. B. Hershey when he ap peared in a movie short on the sel ective service program received a thorough shock when an Interna tional News Service story released Wednesday afternoon stated that military authorities were investi- tend classes until otherwise eliminated. Applicants may refer to notices posted in the Aeronautical Engineering or M. E. buildings for assignment to sections and room numbers. Pictures BRAZORIA COUNTY CLUB—Members who have not signed up to have their pic- soon as possible by coming to 80 Milner tures taken with the club, please do so as or by seeing any of the club officers. The pictures are now scheduled to be taken next Wed., Feb. 11, at 12:45 in front of Guion hall. If anyone is unable to come at this time, please make a special effort to gating the hissing and booing. “Reports were that on the night of February 1, General Hershey appeared in a movie short on the selective service program which was shown in a campus theater. Hershey was roundly hissed dur ing his screen talk on Selective Ser vice Registration,” the INS story revealed. Later stories proved that these reports were rumors and that no investigation was being carried on by military authorities. Stories may be summed up by the statement of Jesse Helinger, manager of the theater, that “Students always have a good time booing first one thing and then another.” LISTEN TO WTAW -—1150 KC= THANK YOU AGGIES • • • For Your Patronage and Your Fine Spirit of Cooperation Saturday’s Programs 11:25 a.m. — You Can’t Da Busi ness With Hitler (Office of Pro duction Management) 11:40 a.m.—Interlude. 11:50 a.m.—A Moment for Reflec tion (Bryan and College Station Pastors). 11:55 a.m.—The Town Crier and Battalion Newscast. 12:00 noon—Sign-off. Elliot Speaks Before Juniors, Seniors Friday “Food is the capital question in Europe. A ten-cent American ham burger has as much bread as the French get in a day, more meat than they get in a week, and more butter than they get in a year,” said Roland Elliott, execu tive secretary of the national student committee of the YMCA, as he spoke to the juniors and seniors Friday morning in Guion hall. “Food, resistance, and recon struction are the key words for Europe oppressed peoples” he said. Elliott has returned from Europe less than two weeks ago and has information from the War fronts and prison camps. Elliott stated that food is of capital importance to the suffer ers. For instance, in France it was impossible for him to buy more than a certain ration of food re gardless of how much money he had to pay for it. It seemed that the people could not get enough to eat to satisfy hunger. The vit amin content is very low in all their food. The speaker described con ditions in the prison camps in France, Holland, Poland and in many other occupied countries. Even though all of the people in these occupied areas are under the most strict supervision, and are not permitted to think out loud, Elliott found undercover resistance to be high among all of them. As an example, Elliott told how the Dutch workmen planted their much loved orange flowers along rail road embankments. The flowers represent the House of Orange of Holland. In cablegrams sent to American while he was in Europe, Elliott emphasized the importance of the great work of student relief that is being done in refugee pris on camps and its significance for the reconstruction days ahead.
