The plot's the thing. If it hasn't
got it here it hasn't got it. "Tht
Hunien" didn't have it. A stellar
cast contributed a great deal to-
ward making the audience think
It was getting meat and potatoes
Instead of skimmed milk and mel-

Perm Questions Point
Of "Death to West?"
While reading the editorial last
week called "Death to the West?"
I pondered the point.
I hope that in essence the edi-
torial meant to show disapproval
pi apparel hypocrisy.
But the style of the article-
seemed to slam the wearing of
boots and western hats for all
A city boy sporting $50 high-
topped boots a Roy Rogers shirt
and a ten-gallon hat would be as
much a misfit on the campus as
would I if I wore a tuxedo to feed
Therefore if the editorial was
directed at ACC Lone Rangers I
agree to the fullest extent.
But at the same time I will con-
tinue wearing boots. Most of .us
who wear them do so mainly ( for
the comfort they offer.
Reunite To Drum
ances of The Pages include a
show at Texas Tech one in Bay-
town and a TV appearence on
KFJZ-TV in Fort Worth.
They havo put on their own
shows in Abilene and in Duncan
Okla. and have sung at the Stat-
ler Hotel In Dallas and the Sands
Hotel in Abilene.
The Pages are managed by
Gene Coleman ACC graduate
and senior class president in 1057-
