    Guion Hall on February 8, 1944, under the auspices of the Student Activities office is to begin a radio show over the Blue Network, it was announced recently. The program will

    ♦---------------------------------------- -begin on Wednesday, January 5, under the sponsorship of Kem-Tone and will originate its first program on that date from New York. Time will be 8 p.m. and will last until 8:30.

    Programs of the various Wed­ nesday nights will originate from the city that Dunninger happens to be in at that time, it was stated at the time that tentative plans were announced. The program will not originate from the stage of Guion Hall on the 8th because that date does not fall on Wednesday, but Thursday instead.

    Both mystic and psychic, Dun­ ninger comes to Town Hall with a national reputation for being one of the best radio artists now liv­ ing besides an excellent stage entertainer. The January issues of ‘Reader’s Digest,’ ‘Coronet,’ “Har­ per’s Bazarr”, and “Vogue” will carry stories of the amazing feats that Dunninger has performed and a little of his personal life. “News­ week” which came out on Decem­ ber 13th also carried an article about him.

    From past performances of Dun­ ninger, the Town Hall audience is assured of an interesting and educational program on February 8th. The Dunninger Radio Show should b& a sample of what can be expected. The stations will be an­ nounced at a later date, but the first show is to be at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, January 5, 1944, over the Blue Network.

    Dr. Taylor Warns Hunters of Hares’ Infectious Disease

    Game Should Be Handled With Care; Five Percent Die With Tularemia Con­ tacted From Rabbits. While tularemia is not wide­

    spread in Texas, hunters should be on their guard against it, Dr. Wal­ ter P. Taylor, head of the Texas Wildlife Research Unit and the Fish and Game Department of the Agricultural and Mechanical Col­ lege of Texas, cautioned today.

    Tularemia is an infectious dis­ eases caused by a germ occuring primarily in wild rabbits and hares. It also is a disease of man, which may be given by the bite of an in­ fected blood-sucking fly or tick, or by soiling of ones hands or eyes with portions of the internal organs or body fluids of infected rodents, flies or ticks.

    The disease in man lasts about three weeks with a slow convales­ cence covering two or three months. About five per cent of the patients die. When one has had the disease he becomes immune to fur­ ther attacks and can handle in­ fected rabbits without danger.

    The best protection against tu­ laremia is to avoid contact with infected rabbits, Dr. Taylor said. Rabbits that are sluggish or which refuse to run should be left alone. Rubber gloves should be worn when handling wild rabbits as the infection is able to go through the unbroken skin. The hands should be washed with soup and water after handling rabbits. Rab­ bit meat should be thoroughly cooked to destroy any possible in­ fection.

    Dr. Taylor pointed out that do­ mestic rabbits bred in hutches have never been known to cause tu­ laremia, probably because any in­ sect pests they possess have not been infected with the disease.

    BSA Paper Drive Ends December 17 The present Boy Scout paper

    drive will terminate Saturday, Dec. 18. A paper truck from Houston will be here to pick up all paper collected by the Scouts at that time. If anyone has paper still at his home, he is requested to take it to the Scout log cabin in Sue Haswell Memorial Park, or to any other place where the Scouts or Cubs are collecting it.

    If anyone has a large quantity on hand and it is impossible to move it, it will be picked up; but residents are Urged not to call if they do not have a suficient amount to justify the time and material it will take to do this. Chester Jones, Mrs. Wesley Stev­ ens, Mrs. B. F. Vance, Charles Turner, Sam P. Kennedy, Charlie Munday, or W. C. Youngblood are the ones to call in connection with the pickup in Bryan.

    At College Station, Rev. J. Hugh R. Farrel at St. Thomas’ Chapel or C. J. Hesse at the A. & M. museum should be called for pick­ ups.

    This paper must be separated as to newspapers, magazines, card­ board, and scrap, and bundled sep­ arately in bundles about 12 to 18 inches high. Cooperation in this will be greatly appreciated, be­ cause of the large volume of pa­ per that the Scouts are now handl­ ing it would be impossible to take all the paper loose and have it ready for the truck by Saturday. —Bryan Eagle.'

    Wednesday C.Q. Moved To 8:45 PM

    Executive Committee Issues Order After Requests Is Made Call to quarters on Wednesday

    night has been changed from 8:30 to 8:45 it was said by Dean T. D. Brooks acting for the Executive Committee in an announcement to the student body.

    This action followed a request by the Student Activities, asking that the time for C. Q., be moved to 9 o’clock in view of the fact that the hour for supper formation has been set^ at 6:30 instead of the former time of 6:15.

    In his letter to the Committee, Boone asked that steps be taken to lengthen the period between the meal and call-to-quarters so that students could take advantage of the recreational activities which take place during that time. In re­ ply the group stated that the ex­ tension of the time was not only for the corps to go to the shows but also to attend the number of meetings which must be scheduled between mess and C. Q. on Wed­ nesday for lack of time in any other day.

    This step by the Executive Com­ mittee gives the student club meet­ ings their full allotted time and the fifteen extra minutes should be appreciated by all who are so rush­ ed at the present with holiday acti­ vities in the offing.

    Christmas Carols Stopped by Cold

    Participation in Christmas car­ oling in the dormitory areas has been discontinued by order of the office of the commandant due to the bad weather it was announced here Tuesday. This measure was taken, it was pointed out, to pro­ tect the health of the men taking part in this activity inasmuch as there is danger from cold and in­ fluenza resulting from exposure.

    For several years it has been a custom at the college for the Freshmen to gather in groups and sing Christmas carols under the windows of upper-classmen. The practice of this custom has been carried on from year to year and was discontinued this year only because of the bad weather and the danger from exposure.

    BONFIRE IN THE MAKING—Shown above is the wood and trash being piled in a stack for the annual pre-Thanksgiving Day game between the Texas Longhorns and the Texas Aggies. This shot was taken sometime before the night of the 24th at which time the wood was set on fire.


    In view of the fact that the-1 weather that has been experienced in this area in the last few days and the susceptibility of the stu­ dents to colds during the activities participated in such conditions, Dr. J. E. Marsh, College Physician has issued a statement as to some of the precautions that students should take.

    A list of these follows: Do not wash your head at night or go to bed with the hair wet. Avoid having windows open in such a manner that drafts blow on you while sleeping. Keep the feet dry by changing the shoes when water is encountered. Marsh suggests that such activities a/, c" •olmg and yell practices be cut to a minimum to keep out of the weather. Picture shows and other public places where crowds are encountered in closed buildings should be avoided to stop the spread of the colds now in existence. I
