Number 30: Volume 55 The Battalion COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, 1955 Price Five Cents Ike Renews Bid To Soviet Union For Arm Check DENVER — (/P) — Presi dent Eisenhower formally re newed yesterday a bid to Rus sia to help dispel “fear and suspicion” by combining' both Vis own and a Soviet plan for mu tual checking on military instal lations and movements. Eisenhower made the offer in a letter to Soviet Premier Nikolai A. Bulganin, signed Tuesday and de livered in Moscow yesterday. Eisenhower’s letter to Bulganin was in partial reply to one from the Russian Premier on Sept. 18 that used conciliatory terms but still dashed cold water on the chief executive’s proposal that Russia amd the United States trade mili tary blueprints and permit mutual aerial inspection of military es tablishments. * Bulganin plugged for his own idea of creating “conti’ol posts” at large ports and railway junc tions and on highways and air fields to “prevent dangerous con centrations of troops and combat equipment” and “remove the pos sibility of sudden attack.” “I hope that we can agree on it,” Ike said, “not as a cure-all, but, as I said at Geneva, to show a spirit of nonaggressiveness on both sides and so to create a fresh atmosphere which would dispel much of the present fear or sus picion.” IE Club Offoers’ IVames Correction Something happened last Friday in the story about newly-elected officers of the Industrial Educa tion Club.

Town Hall Program STARTING POINT—Friday is the start of the first Corps trip weekend for this year, and shown is the starting point Irom which more than 4,000 students will travel to Fort Worth for the game Saturday with TCU. It’s around 180 miles to “Cowtown,” and many students are expected to make long or short stops in Denton, home of the Tessies of TSCYV. Friday night, a dance and a yell practice will be held on the TSCW campus. Court Okays Funds For Mixed Schools AUSTIN, —UP) —The Texas Su preme Court yesterday upheld ex penditure of public funds for schools attended by both Negro and white students. It emphasiz ed it’s ruling does not require im mediate integration. The nine-man court unanimously struck down a 79-year-old provis ion of the state Constitution inso far as it would require segrega tion in public schools. cil’s request for an injunction to block use of state money in schools attended by Negro and white stu dents, Atty. Gen. John Ben Sheppard who had argued state funds could not be used for integrated schools, said yesterday’s decision “settles the law in Texas on a statewide basis, but the time of integration will still be a district-by-district matter.” It also voided a 50-year-old sta tute prohibiting mingling of Negro and white students in a school. The decision rejected an appeal by the Texas Citizens Council from a ruling by District Judge Charles Sullivan in a test case orig inating in Big Spring. Judge Sull ivan had turned down the coun- Gov. Shivers, vigorous critic of the U.S. Supreme Court desegre gation decision, issued a statement emphasizing “neither the Texas nor the United States Supreme Court had said that schools must desegregate immediately.” He said a desegregation decision is still a matter of local discretion. Chorale Here The second program in the cui’- rent Town Hall series will be pre sented Wednesday night at White Coliseum, featuring the Robert Shaw Chorale, a group of 30 sing ers, known for concert tours, ap pearances with top-flight sym phony orchestras, and a long list of recordings made for RCA Vic tor. Starting time is 8 p.m., with the doors to open at 7. The engage ment for Town Hall is one of 90 appearances which marks the Chorale’s .tenth American tour, during which Shaw and his singers have appeared in every state in the Union except South Dakota and Nevada. Director of the singing ensem ble and the orchestra which ac companies it, is the California- born 38-year-old Shaw, a familiar figure in the art of choral singing- all over the nation for the past de cade. He holds two honorary doc torates in music. Perhaps best known nationally from tours, recordings and numer ous appearances with Arturo Tos canini and the NBC Symphony coast-to-coast broadcasts of such classics as Beethoven's Ninth Sym- phoney and “Missa Solemnis”, Shaw holds a firm belief that a wide awake musical organization must also perform contemporary music. He has taken his faith in contem porary music one step further than performance—to sponsorship. In 1952, he scheduled contempor ary works alongside the classics for a series of seven Sunday nights of choral masterworks in Carnegie Hall. This venture, unprecedented in New York’s musical history, rolled up a deficit, which repre sented most of Shaw’s savings to date. But the concerts reaffirm ed an idealist’s belief in the value of choral music, both classic and contemporary. Tickets for the program are on sale at the Office of Student Ac tivities, located on the second floor of Goodwin Hall. Cost for indi vidual tickets for students is $1, general admission, and for non students $2. For reserve seats, students must pay $1.50 and non students $2.50. Persons holding Town Hall sea son tickets, part of the student ac tivities fee, are of course admitted on these.
