On Campos witll MaxShuJman (Author of "Barefoot Boy With Cheek," etc.) HOW TO BE A BWOC A few weeks ago in this space I passed on some hints to college men who wished to become BMOCs. I would be remiss not to do the same for college women who wish to become BWOCs. The first and most basic step on the road to being a BWOC is to attract attention. Get yourself noticed. But be very, very careful not to do it the wrong way. 1 mean, any old girl is bound «to be noticed if she goes around with a placard that says, “HEY ! LOOKIT ME!” Don’t you make such a horrid gaffe. On your placard put: “ZUT! REGARDEZ-MOI!” This, as you can see, lends a whole new dimension of tone and dignity. Once you have been noticed, it is no longer necessary to carry the placard. It will suffice if, from time to^time, you make dis tinctive noises. If, for instance, every three or four minutes you cry, “Whip-poor-will!” you cannot but stay fresh in the minds of onlookers. We come now to clothes, a vital accessory to the BWOC—indeed, to any girl who wishes to remain out of jail. But to the BWOC clothes are more than just a decent cover; they are, it is not too much to say, a way of life. This year the “little boy look” is all the rage on campus. Every coed, in a mad effort to look like a little boy, is wearing short pants, knee sox, and boy-shirts. But the BWOC is doing more. She has gone the whole hog in achieving little boyhood. She has frogs in her pockets, scabs on her knees, down on her upper lip, and is followed everywhere by a dog named Spot. All this, of course, is only by day. When evening falls and her date comes calling, the BWOC is the very picture of chic fem ininity. She dresses in severe, simple basic black, relieved only by a fourteen pound charm bracelet. Her hair is exquisitely coiffed, with a fresh rubber band around the pony tail. Her daytime scuffs have been replaced by fashionable high heeled pumps, and she does not remove them until she gets to the movies. After the movies at the campus cafe, the BWOC undergoes her severest test. The true BWOC will never, never, never, order the entire menu. This is gluttony and can only cause one’s date to blench. The true BWOC will pick six or seven good entrees and then have nothing more till dessert. This is class and is the hallmark of the true BWOC. Finally, the BWOC, upon being asked by the cigarette vendor which is the brand of her choice, will always reply, “Philip Morris, of corris!” For any girl knows that a Philip Morris in one’s hand stamps one instantly as a person of taste and discernment, as the possessor of an educated palate, as a con noisseur of the finer, gentler, higher pleasures. This Philip Morris, this badge of savoir faire, now comes to you in a smart new pack of red, white and gold, in king-size or regular, at popular prices, wherever cigarettes are sold. ©Max shuiman, 1955 To all on campus, big or small, men or women, the makers of Philip Morris, who bring you this column, extend a cordial invitation to try today’s gentle Philip Morris, made gentle to smoke gentle.

The Christmas Season, whatever its meaning to differ ent persons, is once more upon us. Students will be leaving the campus shortly for their homes. Some will stay here, celebrating their holiday among the stones and bricks arranged in that magical pattern we call an institution of higher learning. This is Christmas, the Renaissance of joy, faith and love; when one can carry his mind and spirit to a more lofty plane. Church bells ring out songs of inspiration and humil ity, carols of joy and gladness. Verse 1955 of the song of men’s hopes for peace strikes a sour note. Our nation, and others guided by the belief in Democracy, is engaged in a mighty ideological struggle— a struggle with a powerful enemy for men’s bodies, minds and souls. But goodwill among men fails even to find its place among those of our own country—among many who profess to the democratic creed. Men, disillusioned and senile be fore their natural time, would try to “preserve” democracy— preserve it to their own way of thinking. Not satisfied with the struggle with our antagonist of contradictory beliefs—without whose friendship and trust any sort of real “Peace on Earth” is only a phrase—these men would seek to find dangers everywhere. All who disa gree, all who try to develop their own minds are called “trait ors” to the American Way of Life by those that seek to set up their own way of life as the only way of life. Democracy—a definition? Might not “a way of life that is not afraid of conflict because of its own internal right ness” be suitable? Or “a tradition that preserves the right to disagree?” Is Democracy so weak that a book of rules must be laid down by dictators and enforced with totalitar ian authority? Verse 1955 of Peace on Earth will soon have sounded its final note. A new chord will be coming with the new year. Christmas 1955 will be over. And like the so-called “new spirit of Geneva” its spirit of hope and love will soon be forgotten. Verse 1956—if . . . and what? — Bill Fullerton ASE Holds Banquet The student branch of the Amer ican Society of Engineers held their annual Christmas banquet at Mag gie Parker’s in Bryan Wednesday night, with more than forty persons attending. Those attending included student charter-members, faculty and guests. A steak dinner was fol lowed by a program of folk songs by Mr. and Mrs. John Montgomery, jokes by emcee Ai Cordes, and a talk by Mr. and Mrs. Roy Snyder. The Snyders were honored guests along with Mrs. Dan Scoates, wife of the founder of A&M’s Agricul tural Engineering Department. Fred R. Jones, head of the Ag Eng. Department was presented with a portrait of himself by the students. Snyder, a meats specialist with the Extension Service, spent a year working on animal husbandry prob lems in Paraguay and Peru in 1952- 53. He and his wife used colored illustrations of their work in these countries in describing their visit, which was sponsored by the Insti tute of Inter-American Affairs. Snyder outlined the general geo graphical features and main prob lems of the two countries, and his wife told of the living conditions which confronted them.
