Texas cheerleaders will be chosen
by a screening committee of three

taken Tuesday night by members

resolution to change the present

same time, they narrowly voted
down a proposed amendment to the

April 25 as Date
For Physics Test
April 25 is the date set for grad-

ics, according to Or. L. F. Connell,
director of the department.
Applicants for admission to cer-
tain graduate and professional
schools are required to offer scores
on these exams, and the scores are
also used by some scholarship funds
as a screening examination.
The test is given through the
Education Testing service of
Princeton, N.J., and is composed of
two parts, an aptitude quiz and an
advanced quiz. Fee for the first is
$8 and for the latter, $9. If both

Senators voted down an amend-
ment to include the president of
Mcrituni as a permanent member
if the screening committee. Robert
Winn. Dallas, president of the stu-
.Iont body, had expressed opposi-
tion to this idea, pointing out that
with local students on the commit-
tee there would be a greater chance
of favoritism in selecting finalists.
Winn said that the screening
committee should make its selec-
tions strictly on the basis of the
candidates' abilities. He explained,
however, that the final decision
rests with the student body, as
leaders are chosen by popular bal-
lot in the spring election.
The resolution was written by
harry Reed, Spearman, president
of the post-graduate class. Reed
failed the former cheerleader selec-
tion system "inferior to that of
many other schools of this area."
Under the old rules, any number
of students were permitted to run
in the spring elections.
Paul Recer, Fort Worth, was
sworn in as the new junior repre-
sentative by Winnie Mcllroy, Bry-
an, president of the senate.

Says Matthews at NT Day Assembly . . .
College Grows Steadily
by CHRIS ZW A HI-EN
President J. C. Matthews ex-
pressed appreciation for ex-student
co-operation in the all-around de-
velopment of North Texas State
college in his address at the North
Texas day celebration Tuesday.
The president's address was
given at a special assembly in ob-
servance of the 00th anniversary
of a legislative act which made the
college a state-supported institu-
Although NTSC had (5781 stu-
dents in the fall, more than ten
times as many as were enrolled 50
years ago, Dr. Matthews pointed
out that the growth of the college
has not been sensational. "In fact
it has instead been slow and steady.
"The growth has not come one
department at a time, but instead
it has been relatively uniform, and
the system has been all depart-
ments for one, and one for all."
To illustrate this, the president

size. The teacher education pro-
gram is first in Texas, and the
School of Music is the largest in
the Southwest, he observed.
Suggesting that, another measure
of the college's progress is in the
activities of th staff, Dr. Mat-
thews remarked, "Research grants
and supplementary program now
have an annual budget of more
than $100,000. There has been more
stall writing in the last five years
than there was in the entire his-
tory of the college before that time.
Approximately fifty per cent of the
full-time teaching staff now holds
the doctor's degree."
Also on the progress report, the
president noted that the NTSC
physical plant is valued at more
than $20 million, and buildings,
now under construction or in the
final planning stages, will add $0
million to this figure.
The size of the business admin-
istration building now under con-
struction will indicate- the present
stature of the plant, stated the
speaker. "It has almost as many
classrooms as we had in the entire
college in 1945, and it has more
offices than we had then."
North Texas has "the most un-
derstanding ex-student group in
my acquaintance," he declared.

that there will be the same steady

Since its organization in 1940, the 1 ti- piece band has liecome
a symbol of good, danceable music throughout the country.
Time Magazine recently quoted Brown as saying: "We perfer
sound to noise, we prefer the beat over effects, we prefer conso-
nance to dissonance, and we like the melody if it's good." This seems
to have been Brown's formula for success.
Through the years Brown has contested for first place in popu-
larity polls, winning all major honors in 1 53, 1954, 1955, 1956, and
Although the band makes its home in Hollywood, it has played
more college dBtes in various parts of the country than any other
band. Since last February they have made three cross-country trip*
to piay college engagements from Seattle to Gainesville, Fla.
Since 1946 the Brown band has been a part of the Bob Hope
radio show. When Hope toured Korea under combat, conditions, he
