Morrow joined Whiteman but later left to play with the late Eddie Duchin for a short period. Artie Shaw was the next to sign Morrow for a featured role with his band.

With a little more effort and 10 steps more, these students could have used the newly constructed sidewalks and saved some of that grass the college is trying so hard to grow. With winter coming on, the grass needs no extra tromping to help it die out. Thurs day drills on the field are no help either. Employees of 17 subject-matter departments and 3 regulatory ser vices in the Texas Agricultural Ex periment Station and of 44 field research units over Texas will hold their annual conference in the Me morial Student Center today through Friday.

S. Dillon, assistant pro fessor of biology and internation ally known specialist on beetles, has been awarded a research grant by the Society of the Sigma Xi. The award was made to support the preparation of a supplement on the Family Cerambycidae (wood boring beetles) for the Catalogue Coleopterorum. Dr. Dillon has spent many years of research on this group of beetles of consider able economic importance and has described many new species from all parts of the world. Health Report Influenza and strept throat were the leading diseases in the College Station-Bryan area for the week ending Oct. 15, with 13 cases of each reported. Gonorrhea was next with 10 cases. This is not just because A&M couldn’t play in the Cotton Bowl in view of its 2-year probation for violating recruiting rules. Added is the fact that the conference hasn’t even made arrangements to pick a team to play in the New Year’s Day game should such a thing come about. When the conference passed the probationary penalty on the Ag gies last May it decreed that they could not appear in a post-season contest, which ruled out the Cotton Bowl. But it wasn’t decided which team would play in the Cotton Bowl under those circumstances. The assumption has been that the second-place finisher would get the spot. But no specific rule was passed. Wouldn’t Withdraw The conference got into a corner two years ago when it came down to the final games with Baylor hav ing a chance to tie Texas for the title. The conference had been op erating under precedent whereby a team that tied for the title but lost to the other in regular season play withdrew its claims. Baylor, however, indicated it wouldn’t withdraw even though it had lost to Texas. Rice beat Baylor and tied Texas for the title itself with the latter withdrawing its Cotton Bowl claims. But it made the conference realize there should be some hard, fast rules. So it was decided that if there were co-champions, the one that beat the other would get the Cotton Bowl bid. Texas A&M, upsetter of favored Texas Christian University last Saturday, plays Baylor, another team unbeaten in conference com petition, at College Station Satur day. Then comes Arkansas at Fayetteville, Southern Methodist at Dallas, Rice at Houston and Texas at College Station. Tau Beta Pi A&M Chapter of Tau Beta Pi will meet tomorrow at 7:15 p.m. in the Civil Engineering lecture room to elect new members, announced Gerald Broesche, president. Rodeo Shows Opens F riday, T omorrow; Saturday Weather Today CLEAR Forecast is clear and continued cool. Temperature at 10:30 a.m. was 75 degrees. Yesterday’s high was 79 degrees with a low of 48 degrees. A&M’s cowboys join forces with other college students from all parts of the state for the All-Ag gie Rodeo here tomorrow, Friday and Saturday nights. More than 75 are expected to take part in the three-show rodeo which will begin promptly at 8 each night. Added to the fun will be contestants drawn from college faculty. Several professors from A&M’s Animal Husbandry Depart ment will compete in a section still shrouded in mystery. “Profes sors’ competition” is all that rodeo superintendent James Dickey, jun ior from Bay City, will tell about that part of the show. Dickey claims that no one will want to miss this event. Another new entertainment for this year’s show is the intramural pig scramble, in which representa tives from each group competing in campus intramurals will try for points to add to their year’s total by chasing, catching and toting back to the finish line a half-grown shoat. Then there’ll be the usual rodeo events—with a difference. This year’s stock is not the regular ro deo circle stock that has been seen year after year; it will be all new blood from a ranch near LaGrange, Dickey said. Events will be bareback bronc riding, wild bull riding, steer wrestling, ribbon and tie-down rop ing and a girls’ barrel race. Tro phy buckles will be awarded to winners of each event for the show. Clowns, funny but in the arena for a purpose, will be students Roy Hudson of Bryan and Jimmy Dee Ford of San Antonio. Proceeds from ticket sales will be used by the Saddle & Sirjoin Club, sponsors of the rodeo, to help pay the expenses of student judg ing teams which compete in na tional shows all over the Midwest, said Ken Killion of Alpine, presi dent of the Club and overall co ordinator for the rodeo. Tickets are available for all three shows from members of the Saddle & Sirlion Club and at the Student Activities Office on the second floor of Goodwin Hall. Cost is 50 cents to students and $1 to adults for pre-rodeo tickets; tick ets at the gate will cost students 60 cents. Wesley Smith of Marshall is in charge of ticket sales. Corps sophomores and freshmen will be excused from C. Q. to attend the rodeo, according to Col Joe Davis, commandant. G T \ / cr JL V EL ESPIRIT DE CORPS—Civilian students living in Milner have decided to start drawing signs each week showing that not only Corps students have the spirit but so do Non-Regs. Here, the Corps student is pulling one direction and the civilian student is pulling the opposite way, in a joint effort to tear the Baylor Bear in half. This is the first civilian dormitory to let a sign over the side.
