The weather was threatening,
but all (of the games were com-
Plated, by scores of 10-7, 7-fl, and

Irons Praises
Small Business
i 1 ■ ' - , ^
High tribute/was paid to
small businesses Friday by
Wa trous H. Irons of the Fed
eral Reserve Bank of Dallas
wh sn he addressed the Closing
session of a two-day ^Accounting
Conference on the campus.
“The many thrmsunds of small
businesses located over the coun.
try,” the banker told more than'
200 business and accounting men,
"op'rating in all field of activity
hnvu contributed immeasurably
over the years to the remarkable
eco iornigg|m>gre*s that the coun
try has experienced."
Small businesses, Irons said,
serve us a testing ground for new
met luxls of operation. They also
exhibit a high degree of flexibil
ity to changing Conditions.
More important than these, he
continued, is the fact that sinall
business represents one of the
basic elements of' this nation’s
capitalistic system.
Irons told the accountants of the
difliculties small businessmen have
in obtaining capital. Cost of rais
ing money on the organized, ex
changes is too high for small
firihs, he said. In many cases the
,cost for a small business was al
most double that of a large corpo
ration with issues between one and

Rain Fails to Halt Cotton Show
i weatherman came within a
read’s (breadth of putting the
iper bn the 16th Annual Cot-
Pageant and ball Friday night,
thrbugji the perseverance of
i cast and audience, and a well-
msd statement by Pageant Mas-
of Ceremonies Joe Woolket,
show did go on and lived up to
pre-publicity as the “biggest
best” in the series’ historjy.
Light, fog-like rain had fallen
tt rmittently all during the Pa-
ant on Kyle Field but it really
led into a shower just as the
of the organizational duchess-
floated across the stage. All
duchesses and their ; escorts
ated around the stage clutched
i}r belongings about them | and
screamingly toward the epcits.
s nLei's of the audience put their
;ranm ever their heads, \ the
sr ones donning the raincoats
raising the embrellas they had
jght, and most tit them began
oijking toward the ramps. :
oolket looked questlonihgly
umiI at the orchestra, model con-
ent, and the various directors
charge and asked In a stage
iper If thay wanted to continue.
Ivlng positive shakes of the
head, he began pleading into the
microphone that the show would,
and must, go on. The audience
hesitated momentarily. His faCe
suddenly brightening, Woolket
looked skyward, and with water
dripping off his glasses he shouted
brightly, “Look, it can’t be rain
ing—the moon’s still shining!” Al
most with the words the shower
slackened back to a fog, the au
dience and most of the duchesses
came back to their places, and tqe
show did go on.
And it was quite a show that did
go on. Before the rain, the au
dience had seen and heard a per
formance by the A&M Tumbling
Team and numbers by the Aggic-
land Orchestra. Woolket then in
troduced Lamar Flemming, presi
dent of the Anderson Clayton Com
pany. Flemming crowned King of
Cotton Nelson i Brunneman.
After introduction of the eight
maids of honor of the court, and
their esedrta,; Woolket introduced
the seven Southwest Conferences
duchesses, the Agronomy Society
duchess, and their escorts. THe
SWC representatives and their eu-
curta were A&M’s Jeannine Hol
land, the Aggie Sweetheart, en-
eorted by Altai Eubank; Arkansas
Jacque Galloway, aacortad by
James Pace; Baylor’s Jane Dermis,
escorted by “Red” Duke; Ifiee’s
Maxie Lehmann, escorted by I Carl
“Buddy” Molberg; SMU’s Nell Mc-
Grew, escorted by John Taylor;
TCU’s Barbara Sterling, escorted
by Donald Jarvis; Texas U’s Pola
Ellis, escorted by Herman Dietrich;
and the Agronomy Society Duchess,
Annabelle Miller, escorted by C. F.
Then Queen Dogia, in a white
het dress with a ruffled skirt lead
ing into a logg train, came up the
center of the stage to. the cotton
throne end was crowned by jKing
Whh Woolket on one micropjhone
and David Haines
staff, on the other,
izational duchesses
duced. Then the rains came.
After the shower subsided, the.
Prairie View Quartet, under the
direction of R. Von Charlton,;pre
sented two ' numbers. Then I the
TSCW Modem Dance Trio and the
Caperettea, from the same school,
did two dance routines each. 1

the Pageant managed to) move

As it is each year, the Pageant
