College Station Kiwanians
openly rebuked a sister club’s
refusal to pledge the Ameri
can flag in a resolution passed
at a meeting yesterday.
The local club unanimously re
affirmed their faith in American
democracy and their loyalty to the
American flag by passing the res
The Marshall club, which pledg
ed allegiance to the Texas flag, was
asked for an explanation by the
National Kiwanis Club Headquar
ters for its earlier action.
Their reply was that they could
not give the pledge as long as
there were troops in Little Rock,
The local Kiwanians admitted
that our government, form of gov
ernment and even the American
way of life are npt perfect but that
they are as near perfect as man
has yet been able to attain.
They continued further by say
“Be it further resolved that we,
individually and collectively, at
tempt to restrain ourselves from
saying or doing impulsively any
thing that might excite those less
thoughtful into some kind of un-
American behavior.”
Seating ai-rangements for home
football games this year are to fol
low the same pattern as the plan
initiated last year, Ted Lowe, head
yell leader, said yesterday.
The plan, originated by the Stu
dent Senate and used last year, will
go into effect for the first time
in 1957 when the Aggies host the
University of Houston Cougars
Saturday night.
Under the plan, both Corps and
Civilian seniors are to take their
stand in sections 130, 131 and 132.
This area runs approximately from
the 15 to the 50 yard lines. It has
2,319 seats in it, which allows al
most 900 dates for seniors.
As is the case in all sections, the
Corps will occupy the lower berths
while Civilians will be posted in the
upper division. Senior and junior
civilians will be allowed half their
sections, sophomores get the top
third and freshmen get the top
fourth of the stands.
Corps and Civilian students will
be separated according to the num
ber of activity cards they have
Juniors will fill sections 128 and
129. About 1,125 juniors possess
activity cards, leaving 700 of the
1,808 seats in the area for dates.
Sophomores and freshmen have
been issued sections 122 through
127, which seats 4,434. With about
3,300 freshmen and sophomores
holding activity cards, about 1,150
spaces have been left for dates.
According to these numbers,
about 2,700 seats have been allotted
to dates. Pat Dial, business man
ager of the Athletic Department,
estimated that more than 2,000
date tickets will be sold for the
Dial said rumors floating around
the campus saying one section had
been taken away from the students
is untrue. He said a fence would
be set up at the same place it was
last year, in section 122 which re
portedly had been Cut in favor of
general admission.
“Students will be given sufficient
space for their needs regardless of
where the fence is,” he remarked.
Noting that a lot of the scarcity
of seats trouble in the past was
because of the influx of outsiders
C/./S. 9 Reds Urging
Prods Committee
UNITED NATIONS, N.Y., (^)—At the urging of both
the United States and Russia, the United Nations agreed
yesterday to begin immediate detailed debate on disarma
The action was taken in the 82-nation Political Com
mittee, where U.S. Ambassador Henry Cabot Lodge de
clared “we want no time lost” in discussing disarmament,
“the most urgent problem of this Assembly.”
Soviet Dep. Foreign Minister V. V. Kuznetsov declared
that “The most important, the most urgent issue before
us is a solution of the disarmament problem.”
While the Soviet Union and the United States were in
rare agreement on procedure,"t
who edged into the student section,
Dial commented: “If we can get
cooperation from students, there
will be no space problem at all.”
Saying that there would be extra
policing to enforce seating rules,
Dial warned: “Don’t bring anyone
into the student area unless they
have a date ticket or a student
activity card.”
One of the most important de
tails of the plan is the fact that
immediately after the kick-off, all
class-segregating boundaries will
be removed, allowing students to
fill any vacant seats which, might
offer a better vantage point.
A significant aspect of the plan
will again be the color of Civilian
activity cards, with various colors
being issued to each class. This
will keep students from migrating
into another class section. Senioi’s
have been issued pink cards, jun-
ioi's have grey cards, sophomores
have blue ducats, and freshmen
have white ones.
This same seating plan will be
used in each of the four home
games this year.

Bryan Reports
No Change In
Travis Bryan Sr., promi
nent local banker and long
time supporter of Bryan Air
Force Base, reported last
night that there are no new
developments pertaining to the
base’s predicted closing.
Although the base is not pres
ently opei’ating at maximum peak,
many other air bases have had
their production requirements cut
back and even fuel allowances have
been reduced, said Bryan. The In
stallation hei'e is still operating at
the usual level.
Cong. Olin Teague, according to
Bryan, has been working very hard
trying to halt any action to close
the base by the Air Force author
ities. However, the biggest diffi
culty has been to show Air Force
headquarters the true picture of
the financial status of the base is
much less than a Washington re
port indicates.
The report states that $30 mil
lion is needed to continue the op
eration of the base in the future,
but according to Bryan this is “ut
terly ridiculous” because a study
he had made shows only $(5,100,000
is needed.
The $6 million figure was passed
on to FlyTAF headquarters where
the figure was upped to $7,900,00.
Air Force officials are faced with
they are unable to participate in two conflicting reports and up to
reviews. I now, no action has been taken.
