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daytime scuffs have been replaced by fashionable high heeled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.

/ Heard The Bells
On Christmas Day . . .
“Peace on Earth, good will among Men”—verse 1955.
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
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
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

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
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.
