NOVEMBER S IMS
AU we hear about these days
is progress, progress, and more
progress. Yes, even progress has
come to Rice; the Age of Auto-
mation is upon us. Soon we will
be accused of competing with
one of the New York automats.
The lounge machine! will be
completely changed about and
some new ones added. The Asso-
ciated Sales Company, who owns
them, is having them renewed to
accomodate the load, at its own
expense. They are all to be placed
in one bank so as to make the
lounge much neater.
Along the north wall of the
lounge, these \iachines will be
seen from left to right: coke ma-
chine, candy machine, cigarette
machine, milk machine; then the
fire hose and drinking fountain;
coffee and hot chocolate machine,
fried pie machine, and last but
not least, another coke machine.
The juke box and new stamp ma-
chine will be seen on the other
side of the lounge.
All machines will be replaced
by new ones which will be ser-
viced every day.
So next time you walk down
the library stairs to ye olde
Student Hangout don't think you
are lost. A new and better thing
has come to Rice.

Edna -Saunders will present
The Medium and The Telephone,
featuring Marie Powers, as the
second program in her series, Fri-
day evening, Nov. 11, at the Mu-
sic Hall, at 8:15.
These modern operas, written
by Gian-Carlo Menotti, are on
their first national tour, complete
with full orchestra, and directed
by Emmanuel Balaban who has
been to Houston many times be-
fore with ballets.
Marie Powers, famous operat-
ic singer, created her role in The
Telephone in the first production
on Broadway, and has appeared
in it many times since.
Single tickets are available,
starting at the very nominal
price of $1.80, $2.40., $3.00, and
$3.60. Season tickets may still
be bought for $9, $12, and $15,
and for the first program of the
series, the Robert Shaw Chorale,
tickets for La Boehme will be
substituted, so that those who
buy their season tickets now may
still attend six programs.

Focns On TV
Television will probably be
revolutionized after this year's
Senior "Follies, which will be a
satire on various types of TV
programs. On the nights of Dec-
ember 16th and 17th, horse op-
era, mystery, drama and other
"television" offerings will be
viewed on the stage of Bellaire
High School auditorium. Jonesy
Jones, Phil Martin, and Fred
Woods are working on a script
that should provide a hilarious
evening. Co-directors Jack
Crutchfield and Gene Pratt are
still keeping some secrets about
the show, which promises to put
the current television programs
Ronnie Flynn is already hav-
ing headaches as producer. Busi-
ness matters for the Follies will
be handled by John Wolds, and
Fines Martin will have charge
of ticket sales. Phil Shannon will
be music director, and Kay
Lynch will handle publicity. Mel
O'Brien, Phil Slough, and Jack
McGinty will design the sets,
and Mary Ann Kopriva will be
in charge of costumes.

The Young Democrats held
their second meeting of the year

The speaker for the occasion

two parties in this country are
basically alike in objectives,
while differing slightly in the
methods used to obtain these ob-
jectives. This is due to the fact
that the two major parties write
their platforms to appeal to
those Americans who are neither

their political, social, and eco
After the talk, an open dis-
cussion followed on various top-

dispute, the contest between

HERE'S A HIT- LUCKY DROODLES!
WHAT'S THIS? For solution
see paragraph below.
YOU ALWAYS COME OUT ON TOP when you light up a
Lucky, because Xuckies are tops for taste. Luckies taste
better because Lucky Strike means fine tobacco . . .
mild, mellow tobacco that's toasted to taste even better.
The men in the Droodle above have come out on top, too
—in more ways than one. The Droodle is titled: Con-
vention of baldheaded men smoking Luckies. Follow
their shining example: light up a Lucky yourself. You'll
say it's the best-tasting cigarette you ever smoked!
