Hissing Hershey Gets Results;
Hissing Teasippers Squelched
“Impulsive, fun-loving, rugged'
individuals of the Forty Acres will
have to confine their theater hiss
ing and booing to non-military sub
jects from now on,” Jimmy Pitt of
the Daily Texan states.
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
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
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.”

“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
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.
