question-and-answer type where
the audience asked questions con-
cerning especially labor manage-
ment futurity and'other business
problems. Then the panel com-
posed of executives of TMA
members answers the questions
as best they can.
This is the second straight year
for the Town Hall to be present-
ed at Howard Payne College. Al-
so for the second time the main
topics of discussion were labor-
management relations lack of
industry in Brownwood and the
"right-to-work" laws. Another
question dealt with whether "big
business" can get too big.
John E. Rasco director of pub-
lic relations for TMA at Houston

The Junior Varsity Show is di
With 'Good Old Spirit'
By EUGENE FLEMING
It looks as if homecoming has
come. You know what homecom-
ing is don't you? That is when a
few of the exes come back and
say to Dr. Robnett "It's not like
it used to be "Doc."
Mr. Robnett shakes his head
and says "No it sure isn't." If
the ex stands there just a second
longer he is likely to hear how
the professor built a float or how
the HPC team won a game in the
last three seconds of play.
One of the things an ex is like-
ly to do is to hear Dr. Taylor
make one of his speeches at the
alumni meeting. I can just hear
Dr. Taylor now: "Well somebody
didn't vote Democratic last year
and look at what a mess we're in
now. The Russians have two sat-
ellites and we have Eisenhower.
Now if Wood row Wilson was
running things ..."
And of course everyone wants
to see the parade. The exes will
look at the floats and remember
when they were football queen
or escorts and wish for the good
old days. They are also likely to
remember how they used to work
on floats as an excuse to cut
class or to hand in a late theme.
Then will come lunch. Oh they
like the food now! Fred Jones
Esq. will nudge Sam Smith III
and ask "Remember the time we
set the cook's nants on fire?"

The football game is the high
point of the day. When you go
to the stadium just be careful not
to sit on the downwind side of
some former coach's pride and
joys. They are the ones who use
the strongest cigars. Don't con-
demn them too harshly though.
They are just catching up on
what the coach made them miss.

ably buy their wives corsages

of the game. Howard Payne is on

minutes left in the first half."

before I push you off."

you but we love you just the
same. And we want to help you
