By PAT DISHMAN
Brand Associate Editor
"Share Your Baptist Pallet"
might well be the .theme for the
fifth annual Young Women's Aux-
iliary Houseparty which opened
with registration here at 1:30 to-
day. Hardin-Simmons is week-end
host to some 1400 young women
and their sponsors. This number
is nearly equal to the student
body enrollment this year said
Byron Bryant director of the H-
SU public relations division. "I
would like to urge each student
to feel and act as an official host
during the houseparty" Bryant
When stating the number of
girls expected Bryant coined the
phrase "share your Baptist pal-
let." He went on to say that this
number far exceeded the expec-
tations and that speaking for
Hardin-Simmons "we would be
glad to move over and give our
guests first place."
George L. Graham executive
assistant to the president is gen-
eral chairman for the houseparty.
"We are anticipating the largest
crowd ever this year and we are
looking toward a very wholesome
and refreshing association with
the girls" Graham said.
On the program and in charge
of the state-wide arrangements
for the houseparty are Mary Jane

rector and Eula Mae Henderson
March 1 Becomes Feb. 30
A February with 30 days?
Hal Fugate a Phoenix Ariz. post graduate student said
he could remember a February that had 30 days in it.
Run away imagination? No it's a fact. Hal was on the
other side of the International Da'te Line on Feb. 29. Upon
crossing the Date Line 'tomorrow on this side became today
on the other side. Thus a February with 30 days.
Fugate was en route from the Far East back to the
United States when he crossed the Date Line during his
career in the navy. He was on board the USS Arnold J.
Isbell DD 869.
