Thursday morning, the 4tb., I
left two 15 cent spiral notebooks in
the newspaper room of the library.
When I returned, they had dis
appeared. I know this act was un
intentional and the books are
worthless; however, there were
some very important notes in them.
Thejy were labeled Bus. 305 and
Eco. 311.
I would greatly appreciate it if
they would be returned to my room,
Dorm 7, Room 408.

Carle Has A Bi^ Week-End

With Two Concerts, D
:i r
Those of us who weep and wail
about the overwhelming boredom
of an Aggie weekend have lost our
causa for tears and/howls ai this
psst week departed Up a glorious
blase of activity whicrHiRluded the
triple appearance of a big-name
band, two dances, snd one of the
sweetest “wins” ever scored by in
Aggie team on Kyle Field.
Prepping for a limited engage
ment at Houston’* Shamrock,
Frankie Carle and his band
played “Iron Man,” appearing in
two concerts and playing for a
Friday night the Carle aggrega
tion served as Town Hall’s second
presentation of the year. Person
able Frankie, with the infectious
smile and ingenious fingers, n a
great showman, as any member of
the Town Hall audience will readily
attest to.
Informal and affable, he quipped
constantly with the boys in his
band and the audience as well.
At one point, Carle cleared the
stage of all except his rhythm
accompaniment, moved the piano
up to the footlights, and played all
of his past recording hits.
Carle’s adroitness with the
“eighty-eight” was more notice
able in his jump numbers:
“Margie," “Twelfth Street Ra<?.’’
“Carle Boogie,” “Rose Marie,”
and “Hindustan (part of which
he played while standing up. liis
bands behind his back). These
he played with the staccato
bounce which distinguishes his
style from the rash of piano
playing bandleaders.
On the slow side with “Sunrise
Serenade,” “Roomful of Roses,”
“SUrdust,” “Twilight Time," and
“Rumors Are Flying," Frankie
seemed to caress the keyboard.
