German Films Set For Tuesday Meet
Two early films depicting Ger

ment will be featured at the Tues
day night meeting of the A&M
Film Society in the YMCA Chapel
at 7:30 p. m. Herman Gollob.,
president of the group said this
Movies to be shown at this meet
ing are “The Sunrise” and
The meeting date has been
changed this time to Tuesday be
cause of a conflicting program on
Monday night, Gollob added.
“The Sunrise” is an early movie
scandal, in which the city girl is
shown luring her farmer husband
back to the city, Gollob continued.
Other features of the Society to
be presented later this semester
are “Morocca” “The Good Earth,”
and “The Thin Man.”
The Aggie Ramblers, a group of .
local “music” minded students are
looking for a new member for

—with his own banjo—is needed
desperately by the group.

To some students the arrange
ment sounds rather silly. Why
should anyone want to join some
thing just to give parties and
things for someone else? The best
answer could probably come from
a member of the House Committee.
He would tell you that he was
getting invaluable experience in
social correctness and manners
in general. He would probably
explain that he intends to some
day make use of that in what
ever job he happens to wind up
And he would continue by ex
plaining that the use would not be
just as a knowledge of how to ar
range social functions, but as a
guide toward proper conduct at
This member of the House Com
mittee would be one of the stu

Perhaps, though, you the justi
fied in not knowing what the build
ing offers these other benefits.
There have not been many efforts
made to point them out.
And you are partially justi

laxity and a little questioning
would have provided the un
Interest, however, requires ac

passive lot. They won’t generate in
To combat this wide human fail
ing, the MSC is going to launch
out on a publicity program that
will answer a lot of questions that
students have been too lazy to ask.
Every opportunity is going to
be made to acquaint you with the
true intent and purpose of “A&M’s
Living Room.” If you have any
appreciation at all, you will learn
what the MSC offers and then pro
ceed to earn what you get.
Your living room at home is
one of pleasant associations and
happenings because your family
and friends have shared it with
you. It was probably the first
“classroom” in your life.
A&M’s Living Room can offer
you as much if you will join into
the family spirit of mutual cooper-
atiion it needs so much.
