Mags Chemical Engineering Wives Club have begun their second an nual “Book and Magazine Drive” in the College Station and Bryan area, according to Pat Neely, club publicity manager. As the club’s annual project, the books Mill go to all grades of the colored schools of College Station and Bryan. Last year’s drive, which includ ed only books, brought in a total of 600 educational books and nov els for the students. “We hope to i-each a goal of 1,000 books and magazines this year before our Mar. 27 deadline,” said Mrs. Neely. Since the colored schools have n’t had any money for the past three years alloted for their li braries, there is a great need for the books, she went on to say. There is a particularly great need of children’s books in the first three grades. “If you have any books or mag azines for which you have no fur ther use but which would be edu cational for the students from the first through 12th grades, please phone VI 6-4866 or VI 6-6257,” Mrs. Neely said. Club members will pick up the books. Magazines suggested by Mrs. Neely were Time, Newsweek, and Reader’s Digest. Little Symphony To Be Organized An organizational meeting will be held in the Music Hall at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 17 for persons interested in playing with a little symphony orchestra. This organization is open to students and people of the community. The college has some orchestral instruments for those who might not have their own. The college owned instruments are: bass viols, cellos, French horns and the per cussion instruments. Rehearsals will be held on Tues day evening at 7:30 p.m. in the Music Hall. Thursday, January 12, 1956 THE BATTALION POWER TO BURN—No pun intended*about the transformers now being- installed at the A&M power plant. This work is part of an overall improvement in the college power sys tem that was authorized by the Board of Directors for the A&M System some time ago. Improvements in that area, near Timber Vihage, are a usual thing, a water cooler having been built recently to replace the old one that had become a little dilapidated. Deputy Marshall Aggie To Ploy In Movie By JOE TINDEL Battalion Staff Writer Someday we may be able to see a six foot, nine inch Aggie take the place of stars such as Gary Cooper and Randolph Scott in western movies. Hugh D. Lanktree, colorful cow boy and fifth year student at A&M, will play the part of deputy United States Marshall in the picture “Hell on Horseback” which will be re leased within the next year. The picture, released through United Artists, will be produced by Lock- lin , Pictures Inc. of Dallas and di rected by John Forbes. Forbes, under the screen name of John Carpenter, will play lead role in the film. The company will go on location in the vicinity of Dallas in about 15 days. The Locklin Company is a small film company at present, but has possibilities of growing if its pic- | tures prove successful. The picture which Lanktree plays in is to be the first in a series of pictures which this company plans to pro duce. He will play the Deputy Marshall in each one. “All I want is a toehold on the industry,” Lanktree said. “This company isn’t very big, but I plan to stay with it if it grows. If it doesn’t, I’ll work for some indepen dent company which has possibili ties.” Lanktree said the main thing he is playing up in his bid for movie roles is his height. He has appear ed on TV once. “People turn and look at me when I walk down the street be cause of my height so why shouldn’t they notice me on a movie set,” he said. Lanktree’s goal is to someday play in films like “Vera Cruz.” He wants to play parts like Gary Cooper and some of the other lead ing western stars play. He believes that with his height and some ex perience, this someday might be possible. “After a few pictures 1 hope to have quite a few fans,” he said. “I already have 400 children in my fan c^Jub in Dallas.” Lanktree hopes to influence the film company to go on location near A&M so that any Aggies in terested in getting in the film as extras may do so. He said that the country around here would be a good place for location. The rangy Aggie was recently named to Who’s Who Among Col lege Students In America and is Housemaster for Bizzell Hall. He is also active in many other activi ties on the campus. He received a degree in English last year and plans to get a degree in Animal Husbandry this year so he can have a ranch and raise horses on the side. His aim in this is to train a horse to do tricks in his movies.
