Burden Houston, 17, Hexas Eds. Note — The s Battalion makes no charge to help people who help Aggies. Will anyone who has information' on reader Burden’s instrument case please give him a hand? 3 i IH 1 SMITH NOT CLEAR ’ Editor, The Battaliop: I have just finished reading your article about not having a midnight yell practice in Houston. It has left me confused, and I am writing this in hope of obtaining more knowledge about it. . i While I am sure Mr. George Smith has the best interests of A&M at heart, I do not unde ■•ft stand this part of his letter, •is believed that such a meeting Would only serve to arouse possible acts of violence by persorfSt not con nected with either institution (Rice or A&M).” If neither persons from Rice nor A&M are going to commit acts of violence, why are we held re sponsible for such acts? Does the mere fact that the Aggies are in town mean we are responsible for any acts of violence that may be committed. I don’t understand this. Again Mr,* Smith indicated, “ . i. that Houston officials wi refuse to grant any permi the corps to conduct i > mid: yell practice anywhere in the <ji Again I do not undersiand from the fact that our qoftstitutiion says tho freedom of assembly ah not be abridged, I do not un‘ stand why it would b« all r_ to have yell practice irt the day. The only reason I can see is, for some odd reason, there will be no acts of violence in the daytinie so naturally we won’t be rt 8 I )on 9rt>le for them. I n Your article said the letter was read to a “representative group.” I looked up a member of this group and he said they Were asked to vote' on whether or not they wanted to accept Mr. 3mith’s lat ter. Your article failed to | men tion this. ! l I 1 ! If Houston is not going to give us permission to have a midnight yell practice, where is there any- question as to whether Dr not we want to have one? If there is a question, why can’t the student body vote on it? They are the most representative group I know J ■ 11 ( Bill Stephenson ’48 (Editor’s Note—The main Argu ment voiced by Smith op midnight yell practice is not that we or Rice be the victims oF violence. Both schools have reasonable con trol of the students in any'situa tion which might develop. However, it is very difficult to control the actions of non-students who might “jump” students after a yell prac tice. -I (The question put before , the group which met in Dean Penber- thy's office, as ,we remember it, was this: “Do you believe the stu dents would prefer a Saturday morning yell practice to no yell practice at all?" That is the ques tion we voted on anyway. (In view of the copstern*tion which the meeting caused we agreed that it would have been a good idea to put before the student body the question, “Do yoi^ want no yell practice before the Rice game'' PAST REMEMBERED I i ’ . ■ litor, ; The Battalion; I have always enjoyed midnight II practice preceding a confer ee game, but one being held in quston the night before the game iculd be forbidden. In 1939 or 1940 a similar yell ractice was held at the Rice Hotel, y sortie sheer, fate out of nowhere fracas developed resulting in sev- 1 Aggies being injured. The ouston police department had to p in and use tear gas both on >ystanders and Aggies alike. So any unannounced “clustering 'bunches" would surely have the ^ime outcome at that hour. Houston like any other over- i frown i “country toAm” has its un desirables which have to be dealt rtth accordingly. Lets ikeep on »p” that Aggie spontaneous en- husiasm till we get out to Rice Stadium Saturday afternoon. J. L. Robinette 12-415 (Upper sack) (Editor’s Note-—What about the man in the lower sack?)

Penborthy Willing to Help j Penberthy said he would be glad to do that, and asked that one or all of; the group come to his office this morning to talk by phone with Smltlt i > “I reserve the right,’’ Penberthy said, "to express my personal opinion concerning midnight yell practice if the Houston officials wantj to hear It.” He said that he would also con tact President Bolton so that he could assure himself that his ob jections to midnight yell practice were! in line with college policy. Penberthy continued by saying 1 he hoped that “we can get rid of the attitude that if a yell practice is not authorized that we’ll have one anyway.” “To me,” he concluded, “to go down! there and hold an unauthor ized yell practice is much the same as going into somebody’s home as a guest and doing the very things the host has asked not be done." Byington said that he and the comrtiittee wanted to go to Hous ton to talk with the city council to find out if there was any way possible whereby a midnight yell practice could be arranged.

(Editor’s Note — A bunch of the boys were whooping it up...) Wildlife Dept Asks For Game Species Local hunters are asked to turn in game specimen parts and other hunting information ,to the Texas Cooperative Wildlife, Unit located on the campus, said Dr. George A. Petrides, unit leader. Dr. Petrides asks hunters to turn in to his office one wing from each quail and dove killed and the outer six or eight inches of the first feather on the right wing of wild turkey. He said that he is also interested in obtaining the left front leg of female squirrels and the right front leg of male squirrels. Each specimen should be labeled to show the date and county where it was killed, the number killed, and how many times each species was hunted, Dr. Petridge said. ' > According to Dr. Petrides, from these parts the age and sex of spfeciments can be determined. This information is used to de termine the relative value of young birds to the hunter, the months of important nesting, and the extent of carry over of adults from last year.
