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 and have given my blood-shot eyes a chance to rest I believe I will just stick to fall-out plays and drive-in movies. Last night when I went to the fall-out thea ter to see Bob Spivey’s produc tion, he didn’t make me suffer through one commercial.

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. To Speak Monda Dr. L.

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 “here.” The program ends with a poem: “Softly call the muster, Let comrade answer ‘Here’. Mark them present in our hearts, 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 transportation 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.
