There are a few commercials I
like and even some I look forward
to. My favorite would have to be
the Dodge Charger ad, or more
specifically the Dodge Charger
girl. Why she has fan clubs all
over America. I usually prefer
brunettes, but her careless ways
have won a special part of my
heart and I will always love a
bumbling girl.
Now you may disagree with
my favorite ads and my favorite
peeves. Please don’t write in and
tell me about it. I’m only human.
I have six people on the Batt staff
that have already told me that
the White Knight is great. Ha!!
Now that I’m back at college

will just stick to fall-out plays
and drive-in movies. Last night
when I went to the fall-out thea

can be combed, but still order “not quite white side-
walls” or almost shaved temples with it.
Crewcuts, flattops and burrs were in vogue at one
time, Schoppe recalled, with about 90 per cent of business
in the close-cut variety. Only one in 10 ask for haircuts
combed with a wet washrag now.
“One is just as easy as another for a good barber,”
he says.
Local barbers are more exposed to the close clip,
though. One small town barber, criticized for a crooked
flattop, brought a “whisky glass” to work. Next time,
he finished the trim, whirled the complainant to face
the mirror, applied the carpenter’s level and declared:
“There, argue with the glass.”
“Beatle” and surfer style haircuts rarely show up in
the MSC chairs, as if wearers are ashamed to appear.
A fender-wearing, long-haired youth was caped for
the works. After snipping a few stray hairs around his
ears, the barber looked at the twisted and piled top.
“You don’t want any off the top do you?” he asked.
“No, sir.”
“I’m sure glad. I don’t think I could comb it back
the way you have it,” he replied.

Annual Muster
Will Feature
New A&M Film
Texas Aggies around the world
will muster next Friday to mark
the passing of comrades and to
honor Texans who won independ
ence at San Jacinto.
A special feature of the 64th
muster is the premiere of Texas
A&M’s new color movie “Focus
on the Future.” Twenty-six
prints of the film will be shown
in the United States and overseas.
A year in production, the film
is narrated by news commentator
Paul Harvey and features music
from the motion picture “Giant”
plus the Aggie Band and the
Singing Cadets.
The Aggie Muster began in
1903 when the 300-member Corps
paid homage to Texans who de
feated the Mexican Army in 1836.
Musters have been held since
wherever Aggies find themselves
April 21—on ship, the battlefield,
and even on Corregidor, shortly
before the Japanese captured the
island in World War II. For some
Aggies it was their last muster.
Roll calls this year will be held
in 500 locations: Saigon, Nha
Trang, and Da Nang, Viet Nam;
Thailand; Germany; Italy; Lab
rador; Japan; Mexico; Okinawa;
Pakistan; Peru; Puerto Rico;
Scotland; Venezuela; England;
Costa Rica; Bolivia, and 480 Tex
as towns and cities.
The ceremony is the same in
every location. Aggies pay their
respects to those who are absent.
When the names of the honored
dead are called from muster rolls,
someone in the crowd, usually a
friend of the deceased, answers
The program ends with a poem:
“Softly call the muster,
Let comrade answer ‘Here’.
Mark them present in our
We’ll meet some other day.”
4 Tessies Speak Monday
At YMCA Manners Forum
Four Tessies will come to A&M Tuesday to give Aggies
tips on dating etiquette.
Speaking at the YMCA at 7:30 p.m., senior Nanette
Gabriel, junior Johanna Leister and sophomore Linda Mason
will comprise the first panel.
They will discuss:
1. The ABC’s of letter writing with a 3-D effect (blind
dates, thank-you notes and asking for a date)
2. Flowers — when and when not necessary, housing and
3. Introduction: Small talk and tactful conversation
4. Dances: How to ask for a dance, when it is proper
to “cut in” and what to do when the dance is over (Walk her
to her seat, talk to her and hope a buddy comes along or
leave her standing.)
5. Telephone manners: Asking for a date, confirming a
date, calling to say “I will be late” and guessing games like
“Guess who this is?”
Tessies will return for two more panels April 26 and
May 3.
