Mrs. Murphey calls her job
“Pm very much at home here,”
she smiled. “It’s great to work
with young people. They keep
me busy and interested in life.”

“FOOTBALL players are get
ting bigger,” Mrs. Murphey not
ed. “But you can’t always go on
size. Take little Charlie Riggs
(A&M’s pint-sized sophomore
quarterback). He’s a dandy. And
remember George Hargett ? He
didn’t weigh 150 pounds soaking
wet. But there’s not a better
football player or one who had
more heart than he did.”
“The purpose of TSSA is to
bring students studying sociology
together and promote understand
ing of contemporary sociology
and its uses,” Juarez said.
TSSA functions include a mem
bership drive mailing, scholar
ships, publication of undergradu
ate articles, annual convention,
directory and awards.
The president indicated the
organization will promote high
school sociology instruction.
