Local Scout Program Grows; Chest Fund Support Asked Participants in the Boy Scout program in the Bryan-College Sta tion community will have doubled by Jan. 1 if present goals are ach ieved. On Jan. 1, 1948 there were 408 participants, including Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and adult Scout- ers, according to statistics compil ed by District Chairman Dr. H. W. Barlow. A year later this number had increased to 486. It climbed to 660 in 1950, to 656 in 1951, and by January is expected to reach 838. The total number of troop and den units has shown a similar in crease, climbing from 15 in 1948 to an expected 31 at the close of the year.

Last year this had dropped to $16.70, and is expected to be only $12.00 for 1952. This low per capita cost is pos sible because bulk of the work is carried on by volunteer adult Scouters. Currently there are 243 adults spending some part of their time every month without com pensation, and frequently at some personal expense, in order to ren der a service to the community through Boy Scout work, accord ing to Brazos District committee records. Expenses Explained Expenses are for a full time, trained field executive who works with the boys and with the adult leaders to carry on an effective, efficient program, plus necessary A&M Chess Club Meets Tuesday The newly organized A&M Chess Club will hold its second meeting Tuesday night at 7:30 in the MSC Senate Chamber, Stan Wood, act ing chairman, announced this morning. Officers are to be elected, regu lar games scheduled, and arrange ments for possible intercollegiate matches are to be discussed at the meeting, Wood said. “We had twelve at our first meeting and we want to extend an invitation to all interested stu dents, faculty members, and per sons in the college community,” Wood said. administrative expenses, which is handled through the council office in Houston. Long experience has proved the necessity and efficiency of the council organization, Bar- low emphasized. The Boy Scout program is fin anced through several sources. Each boy contributes a nominal weekly amount as his dues to his troops. Each troop receives assistance from a sponsoring organization. A number of people in the program contribute to the work on a sus taining membership basis, paying a minimum of $12 per year. The Community Chest contributes funds, the amount being determin ed by the community’s fair share of all expenses based on the boy population in Scouting. Brazos Has 2.6 Brazos district has 2.6 per cent of the actual Scout membership in the Houston area, and 3.6 per cent of the eligible boys in the Council. The average of these two figures is 3.1 per cent. On the basis of the area council budget of $246,302, the Brazos district fair share is 3.1 per cent of that amount, or $7,636, the amount asked of the Community Chests. The budget was arrived at in conference of a group of influential adult volunteer leaders, headed by J. Frank Watts of the Humble Oil and Refining Company. Included on the committee from the Bryan- College Station area were M. E. Adams, Ben Daniel, Roland Dansby, E. R. Bryant, and Mr. Barlow. “Voluntary response of repre sentative citizens in both commun ities indicates whole-hearted ac ceptance of the Boy Scout pro gram,” said Dr. Barlow. “There Seems to be no question of the im portance of the work or the vali dity of the amount asked of the Community Chest.” Anti-Truman Move When filter turns brown—in Medico Pipes or Cigarette Holders—throw it away, with the nicotine, juices, flakes and tars it has trapped.

Some doubt it can be pulled off. Some believe if the Southern delegates take part in the national convention—then they will be bound to accept the majority rule. “Unless such a move can be made within the framework of our state democratic organizations and election systems,” one governor said, “it won’t work. Whatever is done will have to be done under the party emblem because the peo ple aren’t interested in a ‘third party/ ” But another said: “Our state democratic parties are the demo cratic party. Each state is autono mous. Whatever we do within our own state organizations is the action of the democratic party so far as we are concerned.” Political Revolt Is Stirring But no matter what form the strategy takes, the fact remains that a political revolt against Mr. Truman is stirring again in the south. No one who travels through the area can fail to see it and feel it. One veteran on the Texas politi cal scene said: “Political activity in the state is starting six months earlier than I’ve ever known it to start before. The national election is doing it.” Southerners agree that despite the anti-Truman feeling that ex ists in the south, the President has a vast reservoir of strength which would be difficult to over run. The core of this strength lies in the historic fact that most south erners vote the straight democra tic ticket in all elections. They can’t be persuaded easily to jump the party. Then there are federal workers, farmers, union men and others genuinely content with the leadership Mr. Truman has given them. One Georgian put it this way: “Mr. Truman has got everybody against him but the people and these people who underestimate him are going to be fooled like they were in 1948.” it is generally agreed that if Mr. Truman’s name is on the bal lot the emblem of the demhcratic rooster—then he will be a hard man to beat in the south. Nevertheless, the effort is cer tain to be made if Mr. Truman is a candidate. The reasons for this anti-Tru man feeling stems from many things according to southerners. One man said: “This feeling isn’t against Mr. Truman as a man. He’s just the symbol of a lot of things we don’t like.” Opposed to Civil Rights Stand The basis of the opposition, of course, is the President’s firm stand for civil rights legislation to deal with lynching, segregation, poll taxes, and fair employment practices. Southerners generally think these are problems for the state and not the federal govern ment. But these other reasons were listed during the course of this survey: The “mink coat” and RFC scandal; high taxes and the cost of government; the government’s pos ition that off-shore oil reserves belong to the federal government and not the states; a belief that Mr. Truman is being dominated by democrats from the industrial states; a belief that he is encourag ing federal encroachment on state’s rights; a feeling that “the people just want a change.” At any rate, what the south does in next year’s presidential election will begin to emerge when the south knows what Mr. Truman is going to do. McKowan On The Go TCU quarterback Ray McKowan (49) places a good stiff arm to A&M back Yale Larry (28) as he goes around left end for a four-yard gain in the first quarter of the game at Fort Worth Sat urday. Coming to aid Lary are center Jim Fowl er (90) and tackle Jack Little (76). TCU won 20.14. (AP Wirephoto). Baylor Saved From Upsets (Continued from Page 3) the iron grating of a water drain age trap when he was blocked out of bounds while trying to pass from his end zone. He was able to walk to the dressing room with assistance. The Mustangs marched seventy- two yards to start the scoring in the first period, only one play of ten in the series involving a pass. Norton made the last dozen yards as he roared through a gap ing hole in the left side of the Rice line and Sammie Stollenwerck went in and kicked the extra point. The Owls evened it up on the first maneuver of the second quar ter as Johnson broke outside SMU’s left tackle on a, hand-off from Drake and ran twenty-seven yards for the touchdown. It was a 1-play drive, the Owls having gotten possession of the ball on the Mustang 27 following Powell’s 12-yard kick out of bounds. ; Benners thrilled the crowd in the last two minutes as he came in and completed five out of seven passes to carry the Mustangs to the Owl 22 from the SMU 26. His last shot, tipped into the air by a scramble of players, was caught by Walker, but the Mustang re ceiver was outside the end boun dary. There was only one second left in the half as the Owls took the ball on downs. Drake threw a long strike straight down the middle to How- ton, who took the ball on the Mus tang 22 and sped untouched into the end zone for a 62-yard touch down play. Wright again kicked goal. • Baylor 40, Texas Tech 20 Larry Isbell showed his team mates how to do things in a hurry Saturday, personally figuring in the first three touchdowns as Bay lor ripped upstart Texas Tech, 40-20. Isbell, who completed 13 of 18 passes and played little more than two quarters, sneaked one yard for a tally and shot 10 and 9-yard scoring passes to Ends Bob Trout and Stanley Williams in the sec ond quarter. A 13-yard pass, Junior Arter- burn to Bobby Cavazos, helped move Tech goalward. Jim Turner whipped around right end from HOMER VERSIFIED: pines midst with thirst °f waves Homer: Odyssey the 3 to shoot Tech into a 6-0 lead. A blocked Tech punt, recovered by Baylor End Bob Trout on the Tech 1, gave the Bears’ a quick third-quarter score as Francis Davidson dived over for the first touchdown of his varsity career. Richard Parma powered over from the 1 after another Tech miscus, a fumble by Arterburn, gave Baylor possession on Tech’s 27. Jimmy Davenport tossed to Wil liams, who streaked down the left sideline, swerved to the right and out-raced pursuers. Bobby Cavazos, the lad who scored thi*ee times against TCU last week, turned in a brilliant 88-yard scamper, sweeping out side right tackle and down the right sideline, then cutting back and sidestepping the Baylor safe ty to break into the clear. It appeared Isbell might be the goat of the game in the early minutes of the first period as ha kicked the first time for only 2 yards and had his next punt block ed by Freshman Ken Elmore on Baylor’s 35.
