V : . • j -,.i To those visitors on the campus this Weekend who are masters of the smooth 'syllable and the ten minute speech, and I here for A&M’s first invitational debate tournament, we want ( to extend a warm and sincere welcome. / We hope that win or lose, your stay here will be both pleasant and profitable. If you find time, take a turn about the campus to look over those things you al ways hear us bragging about.

Just nlcentlviv ions There are many unsung teams on the campus. They work hard in their parti cular field or sport and receive little or no reward. Part of our job is to find these tearn^, learn what they are trying to do and What they have done, and give credit where credit is dub. Unfortunately our staff isn’t large enough to do as good a job as we want to do. More often than we like to admit, we fail to commend a team which deserves recognition and praise from the whole school. . ^ teams. Just recently;we learned that both of these teams had Walked!off with top places in the Fourth Army ROTC Inter collegiate rifle matches and the Twelfth Air Force ROTC Intercollegiate rifle matches. By taking first places, these two teams will represent A&M and their re spective Army and Air Force Areas at the National ROTC Intercollegiate Rifle Matches. They will compete against the winning Army, Air Force, and Navy ROTC teams from each area and district in the country. Wc believe we speak for all our read ers when we wish h<i>th teams*and their In this column, however, we want to make amends tp two teams which haven’t gotten nearly as much support as we coache8 the best of luck in the national would like to have given them. We refer >r matches, and give tfiem bur thinks and to the Army and the Air ROTC rifle congratulations for jtheir past records. : ’ U ! ■ " '-I' ’ . I -- ^ I i ! ' ■ Technicolor Film Cases and Anti-Tnist Axes it- : Wielding an anti-trust ax the Justice Department last week cracked wide open the Technicolor stronsjbox of closed color filming policies. jj- Heretofore, Technicolor, Incorporated has held a whip handle over movie-makers ..heads. Holding 152 patents together with J its processing and filming skill and know how, Technicolor has been d^alirfg with movie companies on its (Technicolor’s) own terms. If* » \ - All processing and printing, as well the shooting of Technicolor films hah beep, exclusively ebb trolled by the one company, Technicolor', Incorporated. Time magazine reports that Technicolor services have t hdded as much as 25’f on box office tick- " ets. ! j 1 V • J f ... At. one time (until 1948) Technicolor and Eastman Kodak had a deal whereby Technicolor would get all of Eastman’s three-color-film. Because of their mondply |. discoveries while position Technicolor failed to expand their to the movie imius facilities to meet business demands. Two , and u half years ago tho Justice Dcpart- mont filed an antitrust suit against Tech- lU'color'charging that It maintained “high, arbitrary and noncompetitive prices’’ and hail retarded the development of color photography. Some ^Studios have had to wait up to six months for' Technicolor films to be printed. Last week, Techmp»>lor agreed to make its process, skilJpoMtncw-how, and 152 patents availableUo others. Technicolor Will no longer require producers to buy all any one, mises to eras for of its 25 services ini brder to get of them. And the company pre make at least two Technicolor cebi rental with no strings attached. ; The Technicolor company hap demon strated a human tendency—to grasp all that it possibly ca a I and to ke^p others from sharing in thej take. Thip may be partially justif ied by the clairn that Tech nicolor’s research apd inventive gjenius has discovered these new processes and tech niques and thp company should rightful ly profit from their discoveries. MOnoply in any! fbrm is bad it be in business, or governmenl , or phil osophy. Rather thah encouraging enter prise, monopoly stifles it, and sick at heart. 7 Dr. Herbert T. Ealmus, wh appears at the beginning of eac color movie, and owner of the has reaped great ose name h Techni- company, ’cirtunes fronfi his film ancement makes us bridging advi try. That advancement has been bought at a high price .o millions of moviegoers. America produced the through which Dr| kalmus coujld make u fortune on his invention.

PEPPY ENTHUSIAST Editor, The Hallalion: I should like to know why you so frequently write unflattering editorials about State Represen tative Poppy Hloiint. Could it be because he is a | former football star and ulutnnui{i of Texas Uni versity? If so, these attucks show n lack of sportsmanship and oast a Jind reflection on A&M’s famous Aggie Spirit. If they have been written because jnf personal dis likes, they are still further out of place in your editorial columns. I am not acquainted with Rep resentative Bloujnt; however, I have heard many fine tilings about him—most of them from ex-Ag- \gics.

Peppy Blount 1 today offered a resolution to the state legisla ture which would in effect ban Ingrid Bergman's latest film “Stromboli" from Texas movie theaters. The ban was request ed “not because of what will be shown in the picture, but be cause of the immoral incident it' attempts to glorify, condone, and glamorize at the expense of and detriment to, and degenration of our younger impressionable - society.” (In our opinion, any man who can offer three such idiotic and senseless resolutions as the above in an 18 day period auto matically opens himself to ab solutely justificable criticism from any and every source. Per haps some of all of them were offered in the spirit of “good, clean fun.” Our! contention is that Peppy should confine' his “good, clean fun” to a more, suitable place. 12 Ag Ed Majors Practice Teaching v Twelve agricultural education majors ai'e practice teaching this week in five Texas high Schools.
