The Mr. Aggie Contest “is a fun type of promotional to give levity to everything,” Bonne Bejarano, exec utive director of the Miss Texas A&M Scholarship Pageant, said. “It’s everything you thought a pageant was, but isn’t,” Bejarano said. The contest, a parody of the Miss Texas A&M Scholarship Pageant, was started by the MSC Hospitality Committee in 1982. The Mr. Aggie contestants — Troy Ireland, Perry Eichor, Vic Pe- tricka, Tom Supan and Craig Meek — were introduced by master of cer emonies James Johnson. Each con testant wore a costume complement ing a theme he chose. The emcee read information about the contes tant: his goals, his ideal date and his plans if chosen as Mr. Aggie. Perry “Safari Fred” Eichor, a mar keting major from San Antonio, was named second runner-up. Safari Fred wore khaki shorts, a straw cow boy hat, boots and a camouflage shirt. Tom “Melvin P.” Supan, a man agement major from Plano, was dressed as a nerd. His white shirt hung out of the fly of his pants. His too-short pants showed off his bright white socks. His pocket pencil holcler was filled with a dozen pens and pencils. The bridge of his glasses was wrapped with tape. While being in troduced, he blew his nose on a long piece of toilet papier. Supan would look at the floor, glance quickly at the audience and then look away. He trippied twice — while walking up the stairs to the runway and while leaving. Meek wore a Superman-type cos tume of a white sweatshirt and sweatpants, a maroon bikini bathing suit and a cape monogrammed with “Mr. Aggie.” His sweatsuit was stuffed, giving him the “Superman” look. He thrilled the females in the audience when he flexed his stuf fing. ^4, INTERNATIONAL WEEK March 2-6 '87 Cultural Display Food Fair Fashion a> Talent Show Party eP Awards Ceremony March 2, 1 lam-5pm March 3, 9am-5pm at the MSC March 4, 7pm MSC 2nd Floor $6.°° March 6, 8pm Rudder $2.°° March 6, after Talent Show tickets on sale at MSC Hallway Sl Box Office combination SZ. 50 Sponsored by INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ASSOCIATION This year supporting UNICEF By Curtis L.

Bill Clements’ plan to extend the temporary sales and gasoline tax increases. House leaders said Wednesday. The tax package filed by Re Stan Schlueter, D-Killeen, keep the sales tax at 5.25 percent and the gasoline tax at 15 cents per gallon until Sept. 1, 1989.

Founder of Ihe Transeendcniai Meditation Program Dear Student, T here's something you can do for a short time each day that will im prove every aspect of your life— your grades, your future career, your rela tionships. everything—a/I at the same time. What's more, it's easy to do. Over 1.000.000 students have experienced the benefits. And you can too. You'll learn about it soon at a special free lecture on the Transcendental Med itation technique. This lively, entertaining talk may well change your life. My name is Kevin Blair. Tin president of the student government at Maharishi International University, where students, faculty, and staff all practice the TM technique. I want to tell you three things about the upcoming lecture: I At the lecture, you'll learn how the simple, natural TM technique, which is practiced 15-20 minutes twice a day. brings profound benefits to mind and body, and how these benefits automatical ly improve one's social behavior, school and job performance, and much more. If you really want to know how to improve your grades, your career, and your life there’s an upcoming lecture you shouldn’t miss. SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH 2 You'll also learn that more than 350 scientific research studies have been done on TM worldwide over the past 15 years. Many of the research results are directly relevant to your personal and academic development as a student: ■ increased intelligence and learning ability ■ improved comprehension, concentration, and memory ■ improved academic performance ■ reduced stress and anxiety ■ inefeased happiness ■ improved interpersonal relationships ■ improved athletic performance You can have these qualities growing in your life too. simply as a result of prac ticing the TM technique. 3 Finally, you'll learn that the TM tech nique doesn't just help the individual. Research has shown that when as little as the square root of one percent of the population of a city or nation practices the TM program and its advanced aspects, the entire population becomes more orderly, peaceful, and progressive. This brings great hope towards solving the age-old problem of world peace. IT WORKS! I f you're wondering how one simple technique can bring so many benefits to mind. body, behavior, and even the world as a whole, then attend the lecture. The explanation you'll hear is at once simple, scientific, and profound. You'll hear, for example, about the unified field of all the laws of nature as described by modern physics and by ancient Vedie science. And about how the TM technique lets you experience the unified field within your own consciousness, thereby bringing you the support of all the laws of nature. The main thing, however, is that TM works. I know from my own experience. I've been practicing the technique for fi years, and it's made me more relaxed.yd more dynamic and productive. Asa result; I'm enjoying greater success—both in and out of the classroom! That's why I'm urging you to attendifc free lecture. If oxen ten percent of what I* said about TM proves to be true, think what it could mean for your achievement and happiness for the rest of your life. The date and time of the lecture are given below. 1 hope you'll he there. And don't hesitate to bring your friends: you'll be doinu a sireat thine for them as well! Wishing-you success in all that you do. Kevin Blair President. Student Governmcnl Maharishi International Unixersitv ■ iTy/■‘is die single mostim- A IV A portant pan of being a peak performer.
