Watt Page, State Selective Service Director, announced. “To the Nueces County Tuber- • culosis Association, with head quarters and principal clinic at Corpus Christi, goes the credit for taking the lead in a proposed state wide program for providing free medical attention for all regis trants who have been rejected by their local boards or by the Army Examining Boards because of tu berculosis. With proper care and medical attention, a large percent age of these men could later be added to this Nation’s supply of manpower for military purposes. And our country needs every man!” General Page said that the Nue ces County Tuberculosis Associ ation, which is staffed by volun teer physicians and has one full time nurse for home calls, will work with the local Selective Serv ice boards of that county and with the State Health Officer in its rehabilitation program. “Registrants, on their part, should realize their obligation for duty to their country and should avail themselves of every possible means to make themselves fit to serve. It is recognized that some of these men cannot be cured to the extent of qualifying for mili tary service, but certainly they owe it to themselves and to their families, as well as to the better ment of the general health of this state, to apply for medical treat ment,” the director declared. It will be required that all in formation furnished by the local boards to bona fide tuberculosis associations or clinics cooperating in the program shall be held in strictest confidence, General Page added. —TANKERS— (Continued from Page 3) fourth.

THE BATTALION -TUESDAY MORNING, MARCH 17, 1942 —TRACKSTERS— (Continued from Page 3) Watkins also won the high jump at 6 feet, 5 inches, and took third in the javelin. Albert Ricks scored 10% points for the Aggies by winning the pole vault, taking second in the broad jump, and tying for second in the high jump. Two of the most exciting races of the day were the 880 yard run and the mile. Aggie sophomore Joe Vajdos won the 880 after be ing pushed by his teammate, Bob Garrett, for a lap and a half. Lit tle Johnny Ziegler took the lead in the mile and kept it all the way to win over Petty of San Marcos and Aggie Red McGlorth- lin. The Aggie freshmen, competing unofficially, showed up excep tionally well. The 440 relay team of Anderson, Frye, Wolf, and Kennemer outran the varsity in the excellent time of 42.9 seconds. In an exhibition 100 yard dash, these same four finished in almost a dead heat, with Wolf being de clared the winner. Tommy Winn and Ben Stout won unofficial third places in the 880 and shot put, respectively. Frye and Wolf also teamed up with Harnden and Battin to win over the varsity in the mile relay. The time was 3 minutes 24.9 seconds. From such indications, the Aggie fish should repeat as champions of the Fat Stock Show meet in Ft. Worth this coming Saturday. A steady south wind hindered the longer races. Col. Anderson was starter for the races.

Musical Meanderings : By Murray Evans I’m doing this piece about Bing Crosby mainly because he’s such a national favorite and because most any out-landishly nice thing I might say about him will go un challenged. It’s a neutral one in deed who never gets into hot water, sooner or later, when he puts his thoughts into the printed word. Be he a swing addict, then swing is glorified to high heaven and sweet tune lovers immediately bounce on his neck with any amount of vilification. And vice versa. But, enough of the scribe and his tribulations, and back to the original proposition—Bing Crosby. Bing makes more money than anybody else in show business. Various estimates center around $250,000 as his yearly intake. (And that ain’t hay. At least you never see it sticking out of barns.) But instead of being placed in the typical monied-baron class, more or less despised because of their vast accumulations of un earned increment, Bing is univers ally liked. Everybody who has ever worked with him likes him im mensely because of his affability and unaffected bearing. Bing is capable and extremely influential. He can get most anybody he wants on the radio or to work in pic tures with him, and not a few hopefuls have had their “big break” as a result of Bing’s ef forts. But most of all, Bing is capable. Probably no other popular singer has ever possessed a wider voice range. Remember how he took the difficult “Sunrise Serenade” in stride? Then there is “Serenade In Blue”, on most singers taboo list because of its extremeties in the high and low. Bing does it without batting an eye—even better than you think you do mornings in the bath-tub. When Crosby does a tune, then it’s made. He bars nothing, hill billy, lullabies, folk tunes, or what have you. Just last week he did “Deep In The Heart of Texas.” That particular number doesn’t even have a bridge, consists of one repetitious theme, and got itself branded as hill-billy from the start.

Loupot Class ’32 But when Crosby did it the listen ing public sort of gulped and wanted to know whoever started calling it hill-billy in the first place. And then big bands began arranging it and playing it to death—a fate to which all popular tunes are susceptible. Two months ago he did an old stand-by, “Meloncholy Baby,” long since shoved back into the discon tinued library. And he sang it with only two violins, a guitar, and a bass back of him. But it was so good that he has had to do it twice since, with the same set-up as the first time. It’s strictly first-rate. Mississippi State college’s roster lists a student named “State Right Jones,” who recently was chosen “best dancer” in a college popular ity poll.
