The Battalion College Station (Brazos County), Texas PAGE 2 Wednesday, October 2, 1957 Editorials BAFB or Tax Cut Congressman Olin Teague has indicated plans to close Bryan Air Force Base are as good as approved by the Air Force. Bryan and College Station stand to lose a basic asset to their economy and naturally all citizens should be disturbed. A survey taken last year by an A&M journalism class showed some 50 per cent or more of the area’s money comes from the base. With this huge “chunk” taken from the twin cities’ market, what would be its future ? The reverberations of the Air Force move resound far ther than the limits of this area, however. As several observers have indicated, the move to close the base is evidently part of a nationwide action to cut mil itary forces. Such action is being taken over the nation in so-called “economy moves” which affect the very destiny of the na tion itself. Cries of “too much taxes” by American citizens have prompted the actions most. These same persons, on the other hand, would be horrified if the United States was caught unprepared again. Once again the American people have created a situa tion which is reaching down and touching them in their own back yards. If Bryan and Colleg-e Station lose the air base, they can thank their fellow Americans and in many cases themselves for griping about high governmental spending and high taxes. pan On UN Council Despite USSR Protest By MARK EMOND UNITED NATIONS, N.Y., UP).—Japan was elected to the U.N. Security Council yes terday to the delight of the United States and against the angry protest of the Soviet Umom The vote in the General Assembly was 55 for Japan and 25 for Red Czechoslovakia, Moscow’s candidate. Canada and Panama were elected to the other two year terms at stake. The Soviet delegation, smarting - from a setback it had fought ener getically to avoid, charged the vote was an “open discrimination against the countries of Eastern Europe. . .” The statement said Japan “was elected in open violation of the charter of the United Nations and of the 1946 London agreement.” Eastern Europe’s claim to a Council seat rests on the so called gentlemen’s agreement reached 11 years ago by the five permanent members of the Council-the United States, the Soviet Union, Britain, France and Nationalist China. It gave two seats to Latin America and one each to the British Com monwealth, the Middle East, West ern Europe and Eastern Europe. The United States contends the agreement applied only to the 1946 election .

Flip open a pack of Marlboros,' light up, enjoy that fine flavor, that good filter, relax and listen while Old Dad tells you about the latest campus fashions. The key word this year is casual. Be casual. Be slap dash. Be rakish. Improvise. Invent your own ensembles —like ski. pants with a peek-a-boo blouse, like pajama bottoms with an ermine stole, like a hockey sweater with a dirndl. (Dirndl, incidentally, is one of the truly fascinating words in the English language. The word originated on June 27, 1846, when Dusty Sigafoos, the famous scout and Indian fighter, went into the Golden Nugget Saloon in Cheyenne, Wyoming, to see Lily Langtry. Miss Langtry did her dance in pink tights. Dusty had never seen any thing like that in his life and he was much impressed. He thought about her all the way home. When he got Ufc? he (hot how m W5 MlllM home his wife Feldspar was waiting to show him a new skirt she had made for herself. “How do you like my new skirt, Dusty?” asked Feldspar. He looked at the large, voluminous garment, then thought of the pink tights on Lily Langtry. “Your skirt is darn dull,” said Dusty. “Darn dull” was later shortened to dirndl, which is how dirndls got their name.) But I digress. We were smoking a Marlboro and talking about the latest campus styles. Casual, we agree, is the key word. But casual need not mean drab. Liven up your outfits with a touch of glamor. Even the lowly dungaree and man-shirt combination can be made ex citing if you’ll adorn it with a simple necklace of 120 matched diamonds. With Bermuda shorts, wear knee- cymbals. Be guided by the famous poet, Cosmo Sigafoos (whose cousin Dusty invented the dirndl), who wrote: Sparkle, my beauty, Shimmer and shine. The night is young. The air’s like wine. Cling to a leaf, Hang on a vine, Crawl on your belly, It’s time to dine. (Mr. Sigafoos, it should be explained, was writing about a glowworm. Insects, as everyone knows, are among Mr. Sigafoos’ favorite subjects for poetry. Who can ever forget his immortal Ode To a Boll Weevil? Or , his Tumbling Along with the Tumbling Tinnblebug? Or his Fly Gently, Sweet Aphid? Mr. Sigafoos has been in active since the invention of DDT.) But I digress. We were smoking a Marlboro and dis cussing fashion. Let us turn now to headwear. The motif in hats this year will be familiar American scenes. There will be models to fit every head—for example, the “Em pire State Building” for tall, thin heads; the “Jefferson Memorial” for squatty heads; “Niagara Falls” for dry scalps. Feature of the collection is the “Statue of Liberty,” complete with a torch that actually burns. This is very handy for lighting your Marlboros, which is terriblj r important because no matter how good Marlboros are, they’re nowhere unless you light them. © Max Sliulman, 1957 Whatever you wear, girls—and men loo—you’ll find the perfect accessory is Marlboro, whose makers take pleasure in bringing you this column throughout the school year.
