Sloan Speaks
To Lions
About Korea
Jack T. Sloan, Visual Aids
Specialist with the Texas Ag
ricultural Extension Service,
spoke to the College Station
Lions Club Monday about the
recent “Texas Friendship” voyage
to Koi’ea.
The voyage was a good-will ges
ture and was intended to help in
itiate more interest and work in the
newly formed Korean 4-H Clubs,
said Sloan.
Sloan showed slides of the trip
showing many of the highlights
and spectacles of Korean customs
and people. The visit in Korea was
highlighted by an hour talk with
President and Madam Syngman
Rhee at their home in Seoul, Sloan
The Voyage was not a relief op-
ei’ation even though the Koreans
were furnished supplies and live
stock. The livestock will not be
given to them until they furnish a
like animal which will in tmm be
given to another Korean 4-H Club,
said Sloan.
Fourteen Texans, including eight
teenage 4-H boys, made the voyage
which originated in Houston and
ended in Pusan Harbor. This was
the lai’gest shipment of livestock
ever to be shipped to Korea, said
“This work was started in Ko
rea by Col. Charles A. Anderson,
a retired Army officer from Ne
braska. He set up the fh'st 4-H
Clubs in the Pusan, Seoul area
and is still working in Korea now,”
Sloan said.
Another ship is leaving for Ko
rea from Galveston on July 13, he

Skunk Does
In Library
In consulting our files we
could find no record of July 3
being “Be Kind to Animals”
Week” or anything of the sort,
but apparently Cushing Me
morial Library officials felt
the need for such a day.
As you entered the library
you were instantly aware that
the library was observing some
sort of unusual “day.” It
wasn’t pictures on the bulletin
board or anything of the sort,
just “atmosphere” in the main
Traveling upstairs the air
became thickei 1 , and employees
working the main circulation
desk were almost on the verge
of tears due to the presence
of the visiting royalty.
A check could not uncover
the culprit, but speculators say
that apparently a skunk had
made its way into the air-con
ditioned ducts of the library.

Steen Defines
For Kiwanians
Defining - interposition a s
the “1956 model of nullifica
tion,” Dr. Ralph Steen, of
A&M’s History Department,
explained and gave a short
history and problems involved in
the writing of the United States
Constitution at Tuesday’s meeting
of the College Station Kiwanis
Speaking to the group in ob
servance of Independence Day,
Steen drew a picture of the era of
confusion that led to the writing of
our Federal Constitution.
John Longley, acting president of
the Kiwanis Club introduced Steen
to the members and urged them to
“stop and think about what the
constitution means to every Amer
The period immediately prior to
the meeting of the body that wrote
our Constitution was described by
Steen as “an era when debtors
chased their creditors and paid
them without mercy.”
Such was the six years the Uni
ted States lived through before the
writing of our Constitution and the
setting up of our present form of
Federal Government. At the time
congress had no powers and could
only ask the separate states to
honor their pleas for money, taxes
and soldiers. Usually these pleas
fell on deaf ears and the central
government was quickly bank-
This period convinced the men
that something had to be done and
the Constitution was the result of
a 3-month meeting in Philadelphia
in 1787.
The signing of the Constitution
compared to “the rising of the
sun,” according to Ben Franklin.
During the program Bill Adams,
chairman of the Kiwanis Safety
Committee, gave a report on the 25
percent decrease in accidents in
Brazos County as compared with
a similar period during 1955.

Gilbex-t and Sullivan’s stoxy of
several mixed-up x-omances, “The
Mikado,” will be seen on the stage
of the Gx-ove next Tuesday and
Wednesday nights, July 10 and 11.
As has been the case in year’s
past, the director is Bill Tux-nei’,
A&M’s well-known dix-ector of the
Aggielaxxd Oi-chesti*a and Singing
Cadets. This year, Turner is most
ably assisted by Mx-s. Billie Jean
Bai-i-on and Miss Shix-ley Cannon.
The Summer musical has been a
Summer Session tradition in Col
lege Station for 14 yeax-s. They
have all been joint College and
community undertakings. And they
have all been enjoyable. The Mi
kado will, we’x-e sure, live up to
this tradition of fine entertain
The cast contains several mem-
bers noted locally for their w-ork I
in church choirs. Sevex-al have had
musical training at various col
leges. Some are students and will
be no-doubt x-ecognized from their
work in many of the Aggie Players
productions of recent years.
Worthy of special attention is
the ox-chestra which is also com
posed of some of the community’s
best musical talent. The orchestra
is directed by Turner and will in
clude Claix-e Rogex-s at the piano;
Toby Hughe*
organ—Margax-et Berry; violins—
Mx-s. Ross Strader, Mrs. John Hill

are: flutes—Johnny Holick, Chax--
lotte Baty and Mary Varvel; clari

Alexander; trumpets—Carl Zeitler
and Mi-s. C. E. Yost; trombone—
Dan Hanna; dx-ums—Tom Pax-ish
and horns—Betsy Burchaid and
Kathryn Gould.
No Gilbex-t and Sullivan operetta
would be quite as effective without
the pioper costuming. The Mikado
will be presented in full costume
with Mx-s. Ron Logan filling the
duties of Mistress of Costumes.
This yeax-’s sets have been de
signed by Miss Marcia Smith. The
stage manager is B. B. Smith and

Shirley Cannon, progx-am con
sultant at the MSC for the past
year will dix-ect the dances for
The Mikado. Miss Cannon is well
known for her dancing and chore
ography in the Aggie Follies of

be complete without a chonxs. This
talented group features A&M stu
dents and many local girls. In
cluded in the chorus are Fx-ank
Dahlbex-g, Binnie Ann Dansby, Bob
Moody, Ann Hite, Bill Swann and
Jean Ann Smith.

and Margaret Berry, all acting as
rehearsal accompanists.
