C. G. White, Office of Student Activities Sophomore Finalists German Films Set For Tuesday Meet Two early films depicting Ger man influence on movie develop 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 morning. Movies to be shown at this meet ing are “The Sunrise” and “Hands”. 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.” Music Minded Minus Banjo The Aggie Ramblers, a group of . local “music” minded students are looking for a new member for their aggregation. A banjo player —with his own banjo—is needed desperately by the group. Talented and interested persons have been asked to see Rufus R. Peeples, Jr. in 11-424. Lynn Lovinggood receives the Sophomore Sweet heart award from the arm of Class President O. C. (Putter) Jarvis.

They should be claimed in person immediately. H. L. HEATON Registrar Education — (Continued from Page 2) that committee will make all nec essary arrangements. 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 at. 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 such functions. • This member of the House Com mittee would be one of the stu dents who was reaping real bene fits from the MSC. He will have found the deeper and lasting things the building offers. There are other examples of these intangible offerings. They are open to all those who care to avail themselves. 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 fied. I say “partially,” since the laxity and a little questioning would have provided the un known facts. Interest, however, requires ac tiveness. The majority of students — and citizens—are a notoriously passive lot. They won’t generate in terest themselves. 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. Dr. Gilbreth Talks On ManE Schedule Dr. Lillian M.
