standing concert singers of all

Miss Stevens said it was one of
the warmest and most wonderful
audiences she had ever sang for.
The audience’s appreciation for

was called upon for four encores
and over a dozen curtain calls.

Dean C. N. Shepardson, dean of
the A&M School of Agriculture, is
in Lafayette, Ind., to attend a
meeting of an Association of Land

which he is chairman.
The sub-committee deals with

Changing the tempo, and the
musical mood of the audience as
well, Miss Stevens sang three well-
known Negro spirituals: “Oh, What
a Beautiful City,” “My Good Lord
Done Been Here,” and “Were You
There.” In singing the latter, she
held complete control over an ap
preciative audience, which is ap
operatic achievement she has es
tablished while singing spirituals.
Putting herself in the mood of
each song, and appearing to sing
with emotional feeling, Miss Stev
ens displayed her operatic ability
with ease in singing Schuberts
‘G r e t c h e n am S p i n n r a d e,”
Strauss’s “Heimkehr” and “0 lieb-
liche Wangen” by Brahms.
Playing three piano solos, Smith
captured the audience’s praise with
“Variations in A Major” by Mo
zart, “Romanze in F Sharp Major”
by Schumann and Rachmaninoff’s
Prelude in B Flat Major.”
Classical Folk Songs
Truly an outstanding artist in
the classical field, Miss Stevens re
ceived high praise from the aud
ience for her folk-song renditions
as well. She showed great con
trast in mood and tempo when she
sang the American folk-song, “The
Lonesome Grove” and “A Bally-
nure Ballad,” an Irish folk-song.
Singing excerpts from “C a r-
men”, Miss Stevens concluded her
program with “Gypsy Song”, only
to be called back by the pleased
audience for four encores, which
included “Look Edwin,” “I’m Fall

Cairo, Egypt, Oct. 17—CP)—Brit
ish troops mobilized yesterday to
combat rioting in the Suez Canal
area, from which Egypt seeks to
oust them, and 17 persons were re
ported killed.
Britain announced that reinforce
ments are on the way.
Egypt too was reported sending
in troops and police—to preserve
order by account of the pro-govern
ment newspaper A1 Balagh.
Unconfirmed advices said six
Egyptian troop .trains have headed
for Ismailia, the British headquar
ters city at the center of the canal
70 miles northeast of Cairo, where
looting of British canteen set off
widespread disorders.
The British commander, Lt. Gen.
George Erskine, told his detach
ments in a broadcast, “We are
not going to be turned out, forced
out or knocked out” of the canal
“We are not looking for trouble,”
he said, “but we shall deal with
it quite firmly if we meet it.”
In London, the British Foreign
Office announced the fresh troops
are being sent “as a necessary
precaution” to the Suez garrison—
estimated to total 40,000 men and
400 planes.
It was not disclosed what units
are involved, but the Kith Inde

The military drill by the band
this weekend will be its second
time to drill before an audience of
North Texans this fall. This drill
will honor A&M’s sister school,
TSCW, and will also honor A&M’s
first Southwest Conference foot
ball opponent this year, TCU.
The A&M Band, under the di

Arkansas Governor Orders
Porkers To Defeat TU
Little rock, Ark., Oct. 17—CP)—
Gov. Sid McMath and the president
of the University of Arkansas
yesterday issued proclamations or
dering Arkansas to perform a foot
ball trick it hasn’t done in 13 years
—beat the Texas Longhorns.
The Razorbacks will be hosts to
Texas, the nation’s fourth ranking
team, at Fayetteville Saturday.
Taking cognizance of Arkansas’
long victory drouth in this South
west Conference series, the gov
ernor and University President
Lewis Webster Jones proclaimed
this as “Beat Texas Week.”
Governor McMath—an Arkansas
Alumnus—went on to “order, bid,
enjoin, direct, charge and command
the Arkansas Razorbacks to fill
themselves on wild acorns—of
which we have a fine crop—and
proceed to de-horn the Texas Long
horns, individually and collectively,
and to tie each of their tails in a
running bowline.”
The governor observed that 13
is an unlucky number—“for Long
Dr. Jones, proclamation, his first
in the five years he has headed
Arkansas, declared that “the Long
horns are in danger and other foot
ball teams and for the good of their
souls should taste defeat now and
Dr. Jones, a staunch football en
thusiast who leaves soon to be
come president of Rutgers, called
upon the student body and fans
throughout the state for full sup
port of the twice-victorious, twice
beaten Razorbacks against the un
defeated, untied Steers.
Some of the largest pep rallies
in Arkansas history are planned
on the Fayetteville campus, and
civic clubs of Little Rock, Fort
Smith and other cities are wiring
messages of encouragement to Raz-
orback captains Dave Hanners and
Pat Summerall.
However, all this pre-game pep
is not expected to be productive.
The experts, almost to a man, are
picking the Longhorns to make
their 1951 conference opening a
successful one.
Austin, Tex., Oct. 17—ffl*)—Gov.
Allan Shivers, a loyal Texas alum
nus, was unperturbed yesterday
when Arkansas Gov. Sid McMath
ordered the University of Arkansas
to defeat the Texas Longhom foot
ballers this coming Saturday.
“I am referring the entire mat
ter to (coach) Ed Price and the
Texas Longhorns for appropriate
action,” the Texas governor said,
“I am confident they will handle
this transaction with the same ef
ficiency that marked their recent
dealings with the states of Ken
tucky, Indiana, North Carolina, and
Texas has beaten Kentucky, 7-6;
Purdue, 14-0; North Carolina, 45-
20; and Oklahoma, 9-7.
The drill, which will be the
fourth done by the Aggie Band
this fall, will begin with the band
forming a single rank consisting
of 170 men on the east side of the
playing field in the TCU Stadium.
By executing a single rank, min
strel turn and a catch up type of
countermarch, the Band will as
sume a reversed formation, march
ing south down the field playing
the Aggie War Hymn.
To move into the normal forma
tion, the band will then do a “lost
time’ countermarch followed by
a “fold-in” type of countermarch.
From regular formation the band
will honor TCU by forming FROGS
and playing TCU’s fight song.
Then the band will salute the
A&M Cadet Corps by forming AG
GIES to the tune of “Wildcat.”
The formation of TESSIE will fol
low and the Band will play TSCW’s
Alma Mater in a salute to A&M’s
sister school.
Next a salute to the 1951-52
Aggie Sweetheart, Wanda Harris,
will be done by forming WANDA
to the tune of “Let Me Call You
While the Band is playing, Cadet
Colonel of the Corps Eric Carlson
will escort Miss Harris on the
field and bestow the customary
kiss annually given the Aggie
Sweetheart at half time of the
TSCW Corps Trip football game.
The band will conclude their
half time performance by march
ing off the field holding intact
the letters WANDA.

The Egyptian actions, linked to
official rejection of an invitation
to Egypt from the United States,

them in a Middle East defense com
mand, drew demonstrations of pop

Outbreak Along Canal
Dispatches to Cairo newspapers
told of the outbreaks of rioting and
looting at British-occupied areas
on the canal, a 100-mile long wat
erway linking the Mediterranean
and the Red Sea.
Five persons were reported kill

Port Said, on the Mediterranean.
The newspaper A1 Balagh said
10 Egyptians and two Britons were

Briton wounded in the rioting at

bloodshed in his broadcast, but
said “We shall resist most strong*

and to go to the help of your
