The pinning of the colors Friday night was a beautiful program and the presentation of McMurry Royalty proved once again that our student body has good judgment in selecting the group of students to represent them and their school. Of course the winning of the Homecoming game bat- urday helped the enthusiasm of the crowd alot as they watched the Indian team fight the Gusties all the way. How- ever the outstanding part of Homecoming; the thing that everybody wanted to sec; the part that made McMurry s Homecoming just a little bit more colorful than any ever witnessed by many was the Tepee Village. The location of the village at the corner of 14th and Sayl...

This game will bring to a close a very successful season on the part of the Warriors. Missouri Valley College is lo- cated at Marshall Missouri and has approximately 300 students enrolled about two-thirds of this figure men students. The nick- name for Missouri Valley is Vik- ing and their colors are purple and gold. In past rivalry McMurry has played the Vikings three times. They have lost two of the games and came out on top once win- ning in Galveston's Oleander Bowl Jan. 1 19S0. If previous scores are any in- dication as to the outcome this year's game should be a thriller. In 1947 the Vikings were riding the tide of a 30-game winning streak when they came into Fair Park Stadium for the Boys' Ranch Bowl. The Vikings won ...

THE WAR WHOOP Friday. Dcctaafcar 3. 1M4 rfts Cditoria It Uf s Support Thttn How do you think the football team would feel if they went out to play a game and nobody was there but their wives or sweethearts? They would certainly have every right to feel that the school was not behind them. Of course this has never happened in the history of McMurry for Mc- Murry is famous for its spirit and support of the team at games. However to a small degree this does happen every year at the Athletic Banquet which is given in honor of the team. It is an all school affair but still few people attend except the boys and their dates. This situation is understandable for freshmen who have come from schools that make this ban- quet exclusive but not so for upperclassmen. Put this date on your calendar December 3 ask your best girl and be on hand to show these boys how much we really appreciate them this year. They have done a fine job and deserve our support.

The Indians were able to move up and down the field at will until the Viking goal line loom- ed in the near distance but were never able to punch across a touchdown from scrimmage. The Tribe's only tally was in the first period when Billy Atkins took a punt on his own ten yard line and sped 90 yards for the TD. Elroy Payne's extra point attempt was wide. The Viking's score came on a freak play in the second quarter. Atkins fumbled a Missouri Valley punt on his own ten yard line and guard Jack Luschen grabbed it in mid-air and went across the goal line. Paul Mullins' extra point try was wide and the crowd of 5000 were doomed to watch a tie ballgame in the sunny 50-...

It is quite natural that this community should have a newspaper. Should not this paper have the same right that all other newspapers in the United States of America have the right of freedom from censor- ship? Conshorship is a deadly weapon no matter where it is used or who uses it. If one person or group of persons has the right to use this weapon every other person or group of persons has the same right. Censorship by only one person or group would make the paper onesided in presenting the point oi view of the person or group who held the power of censorship. Would this bo fair and just to 'those who are not in charge of this power? Who would hold the deadly weapon of censorship in a school paper? Would the faculty administration stu- dent government or a combination of all three have the right to exercise censorship of a school paper...

The letter concerned several of our traditions which they feel are being slightly over-worked. For instance as the council pointed out one of the main traditions taking a beating is the use of the fishpond. It was this writer's understanding that to be thrown into the fish- pond was an honor and one that came only when the per- son became engaged. However it's very seldom now. that a day goes by without the student body seeing someone dunked in the fishpond for looking at a girl going steady or just whatever excuse they can find. Is this keeping a tradition in the right wav? Although we know the tradition above and many others are over used it is also easy to find several mat are narmy kept at all. After all that...
