in for the betterment of A&M College and
thie students that go here, launched a new
campaign Saturday night.
This new program which they began with
an initial investment of $27,000, should rank
right beside other programs they have spon
sored such as the Memorial Student Center
building, Opportunity Award Scholarships,
and others.
•' That money appropriated from their 1952
Development Fund will be placed in a Chapel
Building fund which will eventually finance
an inter-denominational Chapel to be con
structed in the heart of the A&M Campus.
; It was a noble gesture for the Associa
tion to sponsor and one that students in the
future will greatly benefit by.
! Too many times students find them
selves overburdened with troubles and prob
lems. We believe a Chapel whose doors are
always open would be the ideal answer for a
quiet, peaceable place to think, as well as
to afford a sanctuary for communing with

completed—whether it be next year or five
years from now—A&M will have a place
students can be proud of and a place they

Senate and certain administrators on the
campus, the Executive Council of the Asso

not going to school during regular times.
Now, A&M is on, the brink of having one of
the finest years in its 76 year history.
As we start this year’s studies it is well
to look back and view a few of the advan
tages here.
The leaders, from the corps commander
to the president of the sophomore class, are
all capable men. All seem to have the better
ment of A&M as their secondary goal during
their stay here. We say secondary goal rath
er than primary, because we assume a per
son’s object in going to any institution of
higher learning is to get an education.
We have met with wonderful success in
the Basic Division. Men who were in the
Basic Division last year have gone back to
their homes and told their friends about it

classes we have had in many years.

First of Five Exhibitions
Dallas Artists Display
Twenty Paintings in MSC

Draft Officials Suggest
Larger Service Calls
Twenty paintings by three top
flight Dallas artists are now on
display in the promenade cases of
the MSC. This is the first of five
major exhibitions planned by the
MSC Art Gallery Committee for
the 1951-52 school year.
This exhibit differs in two ways
from two previous art exhibitions
sponsored by the MSC Art Gallery
Committee. During the Summer
exhibition, composed of some 65
paintings by pupils of Mrs. Ralph
Terry, instructor for the Art Gal
lery Committee, no portraits were

an internationally known Texas
artist, has captured such a like

most ready to speak. Another por

For pure beauty, Froman’s por
trait entitled “Sally” should fill
the bill for any Aggie, although the
girl portrayed might affect most
as a sister, not a sweetheart.
Adele Brunet’s “Portrait of an
Old Man” is the type of paint
ing which causes people to stop
and look twice. Of the paintings
for sale, it is the most valued
($1500). With the bottle in the
rear, the glassy eyes, the filthy
clothes, it might insult some peo
ple’s ancestry. A perfect descrip
tive noun for the old man is
Brunet’s portrait work differs
from Froman’s in the sense that
the latter’s is good from'the view
of the person as an individual,
while Brunet’s is good not from the
individual standpoint as much as
from what the individual typifies.
In the painting entitled “Indian
Woman”, to some people it ex
presses love, or to others mourn
ing. Two of the still life paintings
exhibited are by Brunet. The artist
makes clever use of Chinese figures
in her composition “Green and
Gold,” and the figures of cats in
“Turquoise Cats.”
In conventional and decorative
florals, comment was exchanged
on two paintings by Inez Stauh
Elder which were placed in the
same case. As in many things,

paintings are a matter of de
“Persimmons” by Elder leans
more toward the conventional than
the decorative in that the aitist
has not deliberately cut out the
background to the extent of “Calla
Lillies.” Although a poll was not
taken, it seemed that more people
were attracted by the persimmons
than by the lillies. However, the
reason may be as one person put
it, “Look the persimmon picture
costs more ($165) than the lillies
