Geology Camp Related In 'Slightly Distorted Skits’ A slightly distorted idea - con eerning the activities of geology students on their annual six-week summer field camp, will be pre sented by the senior geology stu dents at a special meeting of the Geology Club, today at 7:30 p. m. in the Petroleum lecture room. This camp is held each summer in the more colorful parts of Cen tral and West Texas for A&M’s geology majors. The seniors will give their ver sion of this six-weeks experience of last summer, by means of hum orous skits and songs, accompanied by a number of color slides. This is principally for the benefit of the underclassmen. Master of Ceremonies will be Tom Morris, with part of the nar ration being done by Joe Nickols. Color slides were made by the stu dents themselves while at camp last summer. Pour original songs will be in troduced, “Some Enchanted Moun tain,” “Bunger, Bunger, Hunger,” “Oh What a Beautiful Bressia,” and Rattlesnake,” all of which il lustrate some phase of the camp. Merl Bauman will accompany the choir with his guitar. Three skits are scheduled, “S t r u ct u r e Misinterpretation,” “Planetable,” and “Grading,” each a scene at camp involving activ ities of the professors and stu- Cast as professors in the skits are Johnny Davis, Allen Eubank, Ted Pitzer, Cliff Hodges, Skip Mills,, and A1 Bestiero, while Mike Montes, Lewis Rodgers, Cotton Johnson, Wilber Galloway, and Sparky Sparks will play the parts of the students.

By ANDY ANDERSON A blind man will drive thrrough the Bryan-College Station area Saturday—and he won’t even have a seeing-eye dog. The occasion is a publicity stunt by Dr. Franz Polgar to advertise his performances at Stephen F. Austin Auditorium at 2:30 and 8 ]). m. Saturday. This will be the famed mental- ist’s third performance in this DeMolay Chapter To he Organized The Sul Ross Masonic lodge is completing plans for the forma tion of a Demolay chapter for the Bryan-College Station area said W. Er Wright, chapter advisor. The lodge has formed a com mittee composed of Joe Woolket, chairman; Joe Sorrell, Dr. S. R. Wright, Ray Oden, Harry Boyer, and Ed Madeloy to be the sponsors of the organization. “It is necessary for the initial DeMolay class to be composed of at least 25 hoys between the ages of 11 and 21 said Wright. “The purpose of the DeMolay is to keep good boys good by keeping them wRh^good boys,” Wright added. Membership is not restricted to relatives of Masons and any Mason may sponsor a boy for the begin ning class. Boys who desire to ap ply for membership are requested to contact any member of the com- mittee. Lakey Will Speak To Women’s Croup Director of the Bureau of Food and Drugs of the Texas State Health. Department J. F. Lakey was the 'speaker for the Decem ber meeting of the American As sociation of University Women. Lakey spoke to the members at the Woman’s Club Building in Bryan. His topic concerned the proposed revisions of the exist ing state food and drag laws which haven’t been altered since 1911. The revision of these laws is a part of the legislature program of the Texas division of the AAUW for this year. Lakey is at present a member of the American Public Health As sociation, the Texas Pharmaceuti cal Association, and is president of the Association of Food and Drag Officials of the Southern States. area. His last visit was in 1947 on the stage of Guion Hall. No kidding, he is actually going to drive a car blind fold ed. Want to try it? If you have the power of concentration that enables you to read a persons mind then you may suceed. Dr. Polgar uses an assistant in the accomplishment of this un usual feat. The aide sits in the automobile with him and gives him mental directions and Pol gar transmits these directions into proper stops, starts and turns. Recent issues of Saturday Even ing Post, Colliers, and Life and the current issue of Look list some of the “impossible” feats of mem ory and telepathy Polgar has per formed. In Detroit, he dared the man ager of the theater in which he was performing to hide his check for the evening. He told the crowd of 2,000 persons that he would find it or go unpaid. While he was out of the room, the check was hidden under a Nuptia ls Read For Former CS Resident A former College Station resi dent, Miss Mary Ann Munnerlyn, was married Wednesday evening to Robert Gordon Anderson of Houston at the St. John the Divine Church of Houston. Tlie bride’s parents are Mr. and Mrs. William Ford Munnerlyn of 3035 Lock Lane, Houston, and the bride-groom's parents are Mr. and Mrs. Robert C. Anderson of llous- ton. The ceremony was read by the Rev. Thomas W. Sumner, follow ing the singing of “The Lord’s Prayer.” Upon the return from their honeymoon trip to New Orleans they will live at 2245 Welch Street in Houston. The bride is a graduate of the University of Texas with a major in radio broadcasting. She was a member of the Zeta Tan Alpha sorority. The bride-groom, also a T. U. graduate, was a member of the Kappa Sigma fraternity. woman’s hat. In the amazingly short period of four minutes, he found the check, much to the be wilderment of everyone attending. Dr. Polgar, native of Enying, Hungary, has been lecturing in this country since 1933. He an nually speaks to about 60 college groups and 200 education groups and forums. While he was serving with the Hungarian army, he was entombed for three days under a maze of rocks and- dirt. This experience caused the loss, of his memory for six months and it was after this period that Pol gar realized that he was able to read minds, lie called it the law of compensation. He explained that being un able to hear or talk and with out a memory, he assumed that a new sense was given him to compensate for his misfortune. He became the talk of the hospi tal he was in and before long the talk of all Europe. Upon arrival in the United States, Polgar took a job as a waiter and amazed the patrons with his ability to fill or ders without their saying a word. He read their minds and filled their order without missing any thing.

Knocked down from six to four points were presidents of both the lower classes, student senators, advertising manager of The Bat talion and The Aggieland, and senior intramural managers. The job of junior intramural managers was reduced from a value of four to a value of two points. These sweeping changes will have no effect whatsoever on CAP (Cadet Activity Factor) ratings. This latter rating awards honor points to students engaged in ex tra-curricular activities. The Mil itary Science Department regu lates point worth of each job for the CAF. In the course of other business, the Student Life Committee voted 10-1 against a motion by Jim Mar tin, civilian student from Bizzell Hall, that would have eliminated students on scholastic and conduct probation from seeking an office. Discussed by the group were ten tative plans for the annual Par ent’s Day next Spring. No defin ite plans were made at the meet ing. Secretary C. C. “Spike” White asked members for opinions on the Awards Convocation, held for the Tideland — (Continued from Page 1) would urge the National Associa tion of Attorneys General to con tinue its campaign for legislation in congress confirming state own ership. “While I still believe the Su preme Court was wrong in its four to three opinion against Texas on ownership, I am thankful that it went against the federal govern ment on its demand that Texas ac count for over eight billion dol lars collected for our public school fund between June 23, 1947 and June 5, 1950.” Attorney General Daniel said. The court rejected new petitions by Texas and Louisiana asking for reconsideration. Similar requests were denied Oct. 16. In rejecting the final plea, the Supreme Court noted Texas had been a day late in filing its motion. Federal rights begin at ordinary low water mark and extend sea ward to the contintal shelf off Tex as, the decree held. Several unanswered questions are left the court’s final ruling. One was, what effect it would have on proration of the three Texas tidelands wells now producing, and on future producers? Another was the effect it may have on recent Texas legislation extending borders of coastal coun ties to the continental shelf. 'Truitt Will Address Market-Finance Club M. E.
