But the Texas Election Bureau, unofficial vote counting agency, was still check ing ballots on five close races. An amendment to raise legis lator’s pay to $3,600 a year and provide for sessions every year instead of every two years took the worst beating. Nearly 7b per cent of the votes were against it. The other beaten amendments would have repealed the poll tax as a voting requirement, allowed worn# to serve on juries, provided for jeounty civil service, provid ed for hospital districts, provided for city-county health units, and provided for county pensions. The amendments that passed will allow rural fire prevention districts and give the legislature more leeway in regulating the terms and sessions of district courts, The amendment to let the legis lature provide for lunacy trials without, a jury was 7,167 votes be hind! when the election bureau quit counting for the night at 7. p. m.

L. G. Johnson were visiting Mexico, they bought a 2-year-old parrot named Loreto. They discovered yesterday that the bird doesn’t understand Eng lish. Ticket buyers at Union Station became bewildered when they heard a plaintive Spanish voice coming from a 60-foot high chandelier. “Bien, Loreto . . bien, Loreto,” the voice croaked. Loreto had chewed through his wicker cage while the Johnsons were making reservations on the noon train to their home at Sea- view, Wash. Despite coaxing from train agents, red caps and specta* tors, the parrot refused to come down. In Spanish, “Bien” means good. The Johnson’s have other ideas. They finally gave up ^late last night. Loreto didn’t, though. Two Rice Dances Set for Tomorrow Two dances are scheduled oil the Rice campus Saturday night after the A&M-Rice football game.

Ag Council Talks On Club Troubles The Student Agricultural Coun cil met last Wednesday night to discuss various problems concern ing students in the school of Ag riculture.

Eplacopal Parish Houso. 1 Winds Not Only Cause For Lost Hate Wichita Falla, Tex., Nov. 11 UR— You’d better hang on to your hat around hare, and not because of the wind. ’ L. B, Smith, city carponter, told Sheriff Hammett Vance a man grabbed his hat off hia head and fled yesterday. Smith said the hat had $45 in the flap. O. H. Loftin of Electra reported Monday that a grab-and-run thief made off with his hat and $36 in the band as he stood on* an Elec tra street corner. way, told of his entrance into music, his work with Fred Waring, his work with thal] amateur Col legiate Chorale, and finally his work with the present professional chorale. He stated that his Town Hall program was “stiff’, which waa true. But, he said, here was the real music of the world; this music took real “guts" to sing. Whereas the Chorale was able to work four hard hours on Bach without growing tired of the com position, the popular music grew irritating in an hour of arduous rehearsal. As he spoke, Shaw’s nervous ness coupled with enthusiasm for his personal ideas and theories in music, imparted a boyish aspect to him that is noticiable to all. He knows a great deal of music, yet he is “just beginning in his musical thinking.” The prospect of this new world of music opening to him adds greatly to his youthful appear ance. Shaw still has his collegiate touch as evidenced by the ease in which he talked the language of college students. With his understanding of the university age, plus his advanced musical understanding; Shaw was able to impart to the Singing Cadets quite a profound influence in his forty-five minute talk. If • o ./ Shaw is after big things. He sum med his ambitions in one sentence, whereas,! “most people strive for immortality after death, I’d like to have my immortality while I'm still living.” Though this waft thtlr first func tion of the year, the Singing Cft- dets have been in rehearsal five days a week since September 19. A new repertoire, which is being pre pared for this year's series of con certs, will be presented for the first time in concert on December 10 at Hoekttduy Junior College In Dallas. There are 86 members of the ca dets and probably 66 will make the trip. Future concerts are being scheduled to send the Singing Am bassadors over as much of the state as possible. This year's officers are Jerry ian; and torian. Bill Moss, reporter-htf- If. Akers to Address Journalism Meet Robert W.
