Lions Loom Big
In Importance,
Says Teggeman
Next to the church, the
Lions International is one of
the world’s greatest organiza
tions for serving mankind,
Erwin Teggeman. district 2-S-
3 governor of the Texas Interna
tional Lions Club, told College
Station Lions Monday in the Me
morial Student Center.
Explaining the Lions’ organi
zation and service, Teggeman
pointed out the care given local
blind and the locally supported
Kerrville Crippled Children’s Camp
as examples of College Station
Lions Club work.
Teggeman said there are three
main classifications of people in
the world: (1.) the small group who
gets things done; (2) the large
group who likes to watch things
done, as long as others do it and
(3) the even lai’ger group who sits
around and wonders what has hap
“A man must have vision for the
truly important things of life, faith
in his work and the future and
courage to carry it out,” he told
the Lions in pointing out, three
things a man must have to succeed
jn anything he under takes.
The Lions call a board of di
rectors meeting for 5 p. m. Wednes-
liay in the MSC.

Batt Report
The Battalion is exerting utmost
effort to reach its goal of better
seiwice to its readers and more
prestige among other college dai
lies of the nation, Joe Tindel, Bat
talion editor, told the Student Pub
lications Board yesterday.
In an annual report asked of
editors, Tindel said the whole staff
is working to develop new ideas
and improve the paper so it will
be more enjoyable for its readers.
He pointed out that more em
phasis is being placed on special
features and quality in photo
graphs. “Art for Aggies’ Sake”
and “Man to Man” were pointed
out as two new special features.
Tindel said three photographers
had been employed to give Battal
ion readers top picture coverage.
The publications board heard the
Battalion editor explain new or
ganization on a departmental basis,
designed to increase efficiency.
In a breakdown of student repre
sentation on the staff, Tindel ex
plained that there are three Corps
students in top editorial posts com
pared to one Civilian. Among six
reporters, three are Corps and
three Civilian, he said. Distribu
tion among the entire staff showed
some 12 Civilians and eight Corps
South Getting Axe,
Says Georgia Chief
HOUSTON, <A>> — Georgia Gov.
Marvin Griffin charged last night
that Democratic and Republican
leaders “have been vieing with each
other to see who could drive the
knife deeper into the backs of the
people of the South.”
Departing from his prepared text
before an estimated 2,700 persons,
Griffin called for the creation of
the “the biggest, most resolute
organization in the South” to pre
vent federal encroachment on
states’ rights.
The ci*owd was made up of well
dressed men and women from all
parts of East Texas. There were
members of the Texas Legislature
in the audience who earlier in the
evening had dinner with Griffin.
The crowd stood and cheered as
a high school band played “Dixie”
and “The Eyes of Texas.” There
were no demonstrations.
The governor said, “The Con
stitution has been replaced by the
new Republican’s concept of ‘rule
by force’.”

Veteran Patients
Guests For Game
Some 30 patients at the-Veterans

will be special guests of the college
and the Athletic Department for
the Baylor game Saturday.
This is in line with a prog-ram set
up 13 years ago for having patients
from the center as guests for a
football game. It has been carried
out each year since.
The group will sit in special
seats on the cinder path on the west

as a coincidence, celebrate her
daughter’s birthday anniversary by
singing to the Town Hall audience.
Swinging over to the Shep Fields

years ago Fields combined nine
saxophones and five rhythm instru

“Rippling Rhythm”, a distinctive
musical style.
The orchestra is noted as a radio
band and has cut some big records.
Fields and his group have had three
radio shows of their own and are
recording for the MGM label.
Reserved seats at the show bear

4 Yankee 'Club
To Organize
With Meeting
For three years a subversive
campus organization has been
flourishing and now they are again
attempting to recruit new members
and re-organize old ones.
The Yankee Hometown Club was
begun in 1955 when a small group
of our neighbors to the east banded
together for the purpose of defend
ing the fair name of “Yankeeland”.
The first meeting of the year is
planned for tomorrow night at 7
in the Memorial Student Center So
cial Room. Purpose of the get to
gether, according to Nick Settanni,
is to elect new officers and make
travel plans for the holidays.
For the convenience of the men
wishing to go to Town Hall, the
meeting will end before 8 p. m.
Settanni has asked that all men
living in the area bounded on the
west by the Mississippi River and
the south by the Mason-Dixon Line
attend the meeting and meet their
fellow yankees.
This affords a good opportunity
for the yankees to gather and call
each other “youse guys” and other
familiar yankee terms.
Ike Plans Talks
For Confidence
In US Defense
Prepares Speech
For Radio Talk
NEW YORK, (AP)—President Eisenhower told the na
tion last night he plans a series of speeches to demonstrate
“the strength of our domestic economy, the character and
power of our defense programs,” and 1 fie right of Americans
“to confidence in these strengths.”
The President disclosed his plans to go before the people
in a nationwide radio address in which he said “we must
cast aside any morbid pessimism” about the capacity of
America’s free enterprise system to win out in the struggle
against communism.
Eisenhower, in a speech prepared for delivery at a Hotel
Waldorf-Astoria dinner, made no direct mention of Russia’s
launching of an earth satellite^ -
and the Soviet claim it has
successfully fired an intercon
tinental missile.
His theme at the dinner
sponsored by the National Fund for
Medical Education was this coun
try’s urgent need for more doctors,
additional medical personnel, and
expanded health facilities.
An hour after the President’s
prepared text was distributed, the
White House put out a brief pre
face to his remarks. It disclosed
his plans to speak in the near
future regarding the country’s pro
gress in the science fields.
Eisenhower, after noting the
theme of the speech, said “there
are many other serious causes in
the minds of our fellow citizens to
“They include the continuing
endeavor of our people in the fields
of scientific achievement and me
thods for attaining even greater
achievements, the strength of our
domestic economy, the character
and power of our defense programs,
the right of our people to con
fidence in these strengths.
TV Barred
For Ag-Bear
Till Saturday
DALLAS, </P> — Rules forbid
telecasting of the Baylor-Texas
A&.M football game at College Sta
tion Saturday, even though it is a
sellout, because of a conflicting
game at Huntsville.
Southwest Conference secretary
Howard Grubbs said yesterday that
under NCAA regulations, no game
can be telecast, if not on the na
tional or regional schedule, if there
is another game in the ai-ea that
would be damaged by it.
In this case, East Texas State
and Sam Houston State play at
Huntsville, which falls within the
area since it is within a 100-mile
radius of College Station. Not even
East Texas State and Sam Houston
State could give permission to tele
vise on the basis that it would not
damage their game.

“These,” he said, “are some of
the subjects about which, during
the ensuing weeks, I shall seek
opportunities to talk with the
American people, telling them of
my beliefs and my determinations
in these matters.”
The President added that he has
“unshakeable faiths in the capacity
of informed, free citizens to solve
every program involved.”
Eisenhower disclosed no details
of his plans to go to the people.
The indications were that in addi
tion to speeches he will take every
opportunity-such as at news con
ferences to put across his views.
Eisenhower spoke in general
terms regarding the essentiality of
competent scientific and profes
sional personnel. He did not make
specific reference to the need for
scientists and progress in military
fields, such as the ballistic missile
and satellite programs.
