A 1 o n gf Ags Battle T omorr o w Ponies Night Paul Kilday and Col. Norman Callish To Be Here Tomorrow Senate Recommends Dismiss School Painters The Student Senate last night : passed a resolution which recom mends that any student caught painting or defacing the campus of any other school be indefinitely suspended from A&M. An amendment to the motion lidded that this penalty be extend ed to include not only actual dam age to a school’s campus but also any action which might be con trary to peaceful relationship with the other schools. In other actions, the Senate gave the Civilian Student Council the responsibility of settling the ^seating problems that have arisen in the civilian section of Kyle Field. The Senate added to the motion that the solution should carry over to next year since any action tak en will only apply to the A&M-TU game this yeaV. Dave Parnell said the main com plaint was that some of the civilian students found sections closed to them even though they had seats saved. Parnell said students should not depend on seats being saved, for as soon as the section looks full, it is closed to prevent confusion and over-crowding. He explained that this ruling Clean Up Drive Comes To A Close The College Station Clean-Up Drive, sponsored jointly by the College Station Chamber of Com merce and the City of College Sta tion, will close this afternoon when trucks make a final pick-up and clean-up tour of all sections of the city. “No health hazards were report ed, and we are, on the whole, very pleased with the drive,” said Ran Boswell, College Station City Man ager. Trucks will pick up all kinds of trash today, as long as it is piled in front of residences. Citizens are urged to take this opportunity to clean up the city for the holiday Chest Drive Helps Support Girl Scouts (Ed., note: This is the seventh in a series of articles on the agencies that will benefit from your donation to the A&M Col lege-College Station Community Chest-Red Cross Drive.) Weather Today , WARMER Clear to paifly cloudy and a little warmer is the forecast for today. Yesterday’s high of 63 de- 1 grees dropped to a near-freezing 35 degrees last night. Temperature at 10:30 a.m. was 57 degrees. The Bryan-College Station Girl Scout Area Council will receive $1,700 of the $12,100 goal of the 1955 Community Chest Drive. At present there are 47 active Gh’l Scout troops in the College Station-Bryan area aiding the rec reation of appt’oximately 700 girls and 176 adults. Ten of these are Brownie troops, and the remainder are Senior Girl Scouts. Ten troops are in College Station, with some 300 girls participating. Funds from the Chest drive will help pay professional workers, keep up the Girl Scout Littlehouse, provide leadership training courses, and help supply awards and other materials needed in the program. Last summer, 212 girls received camping experience at Bastrop State Park, Normangee Lake, and other established camps. The re mainder attended day camp at Ki- wanis park or the Girls Scout Lit tlehouse. “Money made from the annual Girl Scout Cookie Sale is kept by the individual girl to apply toward her camp expenses,” said Mrs. Loyd Keel, president of the Bryan-Col lege Station Area Council. “Funds for the local administration come entirely from the Community Chest, Bi'yan’s United Fund drive, Calendar sales, gifts and the girls weekly dues.” (This series will continue Tues day, with a review of the Activities of the Red Cross in Brazos Coun ty.) was based this way because the civilian students had voted to have the seats on a first-come, first- serve basis instead of reserved seats. i Parnell requested that Corps sophomores and freshmen have their dates meet them in their sec tions instead of near the ramps. Students meeting their dates near the ramps and then going to the sections causes too much confus ion. He added that Corps seniors who come to the game in civilian clothes will not be allowed to sit in the Corps sections since there is no definite way of determining if they are in the corps or are civil ians. As an idea for obtaining more money for student government use, Senate President B. A. (Scotty) Parham brought up the sugges tion of getting money from the ever-growing traffic fine fund, in which there is supposed to be more than $1,400. Parham appointed a committee which is to investigate the possi bility of obtaining some of the traffic money. Baylor Has Last Laugh Over Sips Baylor’s Pancho again dis appeared from the bear pen in Waco, only to turn up at the University of Texas in Aus tin. According to the Daily Tex an, “A sardine-eating bear cub was in growling seclusion late Wednesday following his ear lier abduction by four UT stu dents.” The bear cub was lured away from the campus with a can of sardines. Texas stu dents stood guard over the bear, which was located at a gargage within five blocks of the campus. Now, the bear has been re turned, but Bevo VI is miss ing. The half-ton steer was reported missing about the same time Pancho was return ed to the Baylor campus. Texas students are now searching for their mascot and have warned that the animal is dangerous. with Burgess will be a host of other military dignitaries and congressmen.

By RONNIE GREATHOUSE Battalion Sports Editor A cantankerous SMU Mustang tries to pitch the Aggies out of the driver’s seat in the Southwest Conference football derby tomorrow night at 8 in the 38th meeting between the two schools. A&M goes into the Kyle Field clash with a league leading 2-0-1 record, while the ponderous Ponies hold down the third position with one win and one loss. The Cadets hold a slight edge in the SMU series, dating back to 1916, with 17 wins and 15 losses. Five contests have ended in a draw. “We’re in pretty good condition—physically,” said Coach Paul (Bear) Bryant after yesterday’s practice ses sion, “Yes, over-all, I guess we’re in about as good condition as we’ve been all year.” Three players, starting left tackle Charles Krueger, end Bobby Marks and fullback Roddy Osborne, have been hampered with injuries this week, but all are expected to see action against the Mustangs. Only probable change in tomor row night’s starting line-up will be at quarterback. Jimmy Wright, who’s seventh among SWC passers, will start in place of Donnie Grant. Other backfield starters are half backs John Crow and Loyd Taylor and fullback Jack Pardee. ON PAPER the Aggies and Mus tangs appear about even, with a slight edge going to SMU. The Ponies have averaged 309.8 yards on offense and given up 211 yards on defense. A&M has picked up 302.3 yards on the attack and al lowed opponents 214. SMU hag a more balanced attack than the Cadets, having rushed for 208 yards and passed for 101.. A&M’s strong point so far has been its relentless ground play, and it ranks second only to TCU with an average of 255 yards per game. The massive Mustangs have thrown up the best barrier against rushing in the conference, having given up only 116 yards overland. A&M is tops in pass defending, and second in rushing defense. Penalties have hurt the Aggies this season, and they’re way out in fi-ont in that department with 558 yards on rule violations. “I DON’T know whether we’ve got a chance or not,” Bryant said worriedly, “but we believe we have.” There are about 10,000 tickets left for the A&M-SMU game ac cording to Pat Dial of the Athletic Office. There are 4,000 in the south bleachers and about 6,000 in the concrete stands. Of these most are in the north end zone he add ed. The game definitely will not be televised. John Foster Dulles, British Foreign Secretary Harold Macmillan, and French Foreign Minister Antoine Pinay reproached Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov for his op position to giving the Germans free choice of their destiny. Mo lotov sharply challenged the West’s ideas on German unification. ★ ★ ★ WASHINGTON — The United States yesterday prodded Israel and the Arab states to hold high- level peace talks instead of try ing to fight out their “explosive” border dispute. State Depart ment press officer Lincoln White said such talks “would be wel come.” ★ ★ ★ WASHINGTON—The American Civil Liberties Union said yester day abuses of secrecy in the gov ernment increased during the Tru man and Eisenhower administra tions, and were “never so rampant as now.” The group’s study gave special attention to President Ei senhower’s directive barring cer tain testimony in. the Army-Mc- Carthy hearings last year. Holladay Pleads For Bonfire Help Paul Holladay, head yell lead er, has made a plea for trucks to be used for the hauling of logs for A&M’s annual bonfire sched uled to burn Nov. 23. He also said anyone wanting to donate their trees to be cut for the bonfire should contact him as soon as possible. One of fer was made, but the logs would have to be hauled through (he city of Bryan. Holladay lives in dormitory 12, room 118. The phone number is 4-4964.
