Boys In the Band -
Definitely Not a Musical
by Stan Kucharski
"BOYS IN THE BAND" the
radio announcer tells us "is not
a musical " He's quite right the
movie is a novel approach to a
sensitive subject to the movie-
makers of previous decades and
which had its reviving with
"MIDNIGHT COWBOY."
"BOYS IN THE BAND" is one
of the most candid movies to
come out of the celloid factories
in a while and surprise the
movie hasn't got a single sexy or
vulgar scene. Homosexuality as
a social problem is treated as an
in depth revealing personal
glimpse of eight "queens" and
how they have "come out of the
LITTLE MAN

New Members Sought
By Wah Wahtaysee
Wah Wahtaysee will begin its
fall rush with a big coke party
on September 26 at 10:00 a.m. in
Martin lobby. About 70 invita-
tions have been sent. All club
members are urged to attend.
The honorary service club was
organized in 1926 as a drill team
or spirit team. Wah Wahtaysee's
purpose is "to serve as a hostess
group on the compus and to pro-
mote friendship throughout Mc-
Murry College. It is one group
which tends to bring together the
social clubs and nil other organi-
zations on the campus in order to
have a more unified student
body "
A girl must have a 28 grade
average to be asked to join and
she must maintain a 2.3 grade
point average. She must also dc
a Sophomore.
Wah Wahtaysee is noted for
several things. One is the totem
pole in Old Main which the club
received in 1930 and another is
their club song "the Fire Fly
Song."
Main functions of the club in-
clude: ushering for the Willson
lectures; holding one annual ser-
vice project; helping APO (Alpha
Phi Omega) sale library books in
the spring; sponsoring a fashion
show.
One special project the club did
in past years was placing a bronze
plaque in the Library for Dr.
Hunt.
Officers of Wah Wahtaysee are:
president Charlotte Adams; vice
president Linda Talbert; secre
closet."
The movie centers around a
birthday party for Harold a pock-
faced high strung and pot smok-
ing Jew and his seven friends.
The main character Michael
dominates the party and the rest
of the people. His hatred of them
and himself is quite evident and
his failure to adjust adequately is
plain.
The last scene reveals the run-
ning theme of the movie when
Michael head bowed crying
blurts out "Why do we hate our-
selves so much?"
The message is plain tolerance
isn't enough understanding would
eliminate the hell of the gay life.

Indian
by Pug
Tough luck has struck the MeMurry Indian band. The
flashy now maroon and white uniforms that should have
been here for the Southwest Texas game are going to be
delayed Prof. Bynum has issued the old uniforms with
hopes that the new ones will arrive in time for home-
coming. Is it a case of wild imagination or is the cafeteria
food actually improving? Monday's fish buffet and last
week's bake'd potatoes seem to indicate that things are
looking up for Iris Graham patrons. Perhaps the voice of
the students has actually done some good'
There were some pretty surprised expressions seen in
Iris Graham last Friday when Dr. Kim dropped in for a
bite to eat!! How luckv we are at MeMurry to have a
president like Dr. Kim! It's evident that his interests in
the college and concerns for the students are genuine.
Rehearsals for the annual homecoming talent show
have already begun. Show director Dennis Alcorn and his
assistants have chosen the song "Where Do I Go?" for the
theme.
The I AGS) production. "Love Power" received praise
upon praise and many of the same talented people are
back to try to top last' year's show. Anyone interested in
making the show a success should drop by Radford for
evening practices. Help is always appreciated when so
much work is involved. If stage presentation isn't your
bag then help with the sets. Eddie Harrison who has
handled the student production sets for the past two
years is back with paint brush in hand to direct this
year's scenery. If you want to feel like part of the action
and have n good time doing it the homecoming show
needs you.
A story appears on page 1 about the naming of Abi-
lene college scholars to ICUT student positions. Should
state funds be used to support private institutions? That's
what ICUT is all about. We at McM should realize that
the future of our school hinges on this question. The
War Whoop as a sounding-board for student opinion
welcomes your comments on this as well as other situa-
tions. Traveling Art Show
