Letters from Santa
Now Available
Women’s News Editor
Just imagine how excited your child would be to get a
letter from Santa Claus in answer to his own! A letter that
comes all the way from the North Pole—where, as all child
ren know, Santa stays except when he’s delivering presents
on Christmas Eve. This year your child can have that thrill
—thanks to the local Ames Travel Agency, and Pan Ameri
can World Airways.
Get Santa Claus Stationery from Ames or any Pan
American office. There’s no charge for a sheet and envelope.
Using the Santa Claus Stationery, you answer your
child’s letter, and sign the answer “Santa Claus.” Then you ;
write your child’s name and address on the envelope, and i
place a six cent Air Mail stam on it. Return the stamped j
and addressed letter to your Travel Agent or the Pan Ameri
can office where you obtained the stationery before Dec. 16.
That’s all you have to do. Your child gets a letter from
Santa. ~
From there your letter goes by air to “Santa” in Alaska.
A few days later your child will be delighted to receive an
air mail letter from Santa Claus—from the North Pole.

‘ALL MY SONS’ CAST—Revising' the usual order, this is the cast of the Aggie Players’
first production. (From right to left) Harry Gooding and Iris Bullard have the lead parts

‘All My Sons’ Utilizes
Theatre in the Round
Theatre-in-the-round will make
its first appearance at A&M Tues
day night, when the Aggie Placers
present “All My Sons,” their in
itial production of the year at 8:15
in the MSC Ballroom.
Entirely different from conven
tional theatre, the round type fea
tures something similar to a box
ing match. The audience complete
ly surrounds the “stage.”
Theatre-in-the-round has been
successful in situations where the
actors don’t have sufficient stage
space to act. When the college
tore down the Assembly Hall last
spring, it left the Players with no
The MSC came to their rescue
with an offer of the MSC Ballroom.
The stage in the Ballroom is not
nedrly deep enough for a dramatic
production. In this play, the group
has to resort to theatre-in-the-
I'his type of production makes
it more difficult for the actors,
as they have no way to turn with
out facing the audience.
It also gives the audience a
chance to get closer to the actors
and enables them to see the actors
facial expressions much better
than the conventional stage.
Lead Roles
The lead roles in Tuesday night’s
performance will be borne by Har
ry Gooding and Iris Bullard as
mother and father in Arthur Mil
ler’s production.
In supporting roles are Jerry
McFarland, Virginia Lemmon, and
Bill Witty.
Richard Black will portray a
doctor in the tragedy. Joan Brown,
Roger Melton and Jeanne McMul
len complete the cast.
Tickets to the play may bo
bought from any member of ••the-
Aggie Players or at the ticket
booth in the MSC for 50 cents.

Today’s college man doesn’t die

right degree of difference.

To a raindrop, all umbrellas are the same
Yes, the nice part about umbrellas is their
similarity. When the need is urgent, any
one will work.
When it comes to telephone equipment,
however, a general likeness isn’t enough.
Parts are engineered to be exactly the
same no matter where they are used. Only
such rigid standardization made possible
the smooth and interlocking system that
serves you from Penobscot, Maine, to
Pescaderq, California.
We’re reminded of it sharply in times of
disaster — from flood, blast or hurricane.
Telephone men from other areas can come
and pitch right in with the same methods,
tools and equipment.
But one Bell System asset isn’t stand
ardized. That is its people. It takes able,
original minds to keep our business
moving ahead. For college graduates
qualified for and interested in such widely
differing work as research, engineering,
operations and administration, we offer
many opportunities.
Your college placement people will be
glad to tell you more about it.
