Clark McClellan Will Play
For 'Sadie Hawkins' Dance
Offered In Union Saturday,
Special Prize To Be Given II_ _ _
To Best Daisy Mae And
Li l Abner At Affair

'Blackout Dance'
To Be Tomorrow
Bring out your feudin' irons, and
while you're at it, tuck away those in-
hibitions, because you'll be needin'
the former and have no use for the
latter at the Summer Session "Sadie
Hawkins" dance, to be held from 9
to 12 p.m. Saturday in the Union
Ballroom, to the tunes of Clark Mc-
Clellan's Rhythm Club.
Rigid costume rulings have been
established and are being enforced
by the costume committee, who will
standat the door of the ballroom and
use shootin' irons, if necessary, to
collect an "inhibition tax" from those
whose costume doesn't even suggest
that of a hill-billy.
'Tax Exempt'
However, the committee has con-
sented to compromise to the extent
that they will give hints as to how
you may come "tax exempt." The
ideal costume, of course, would be
similar to Li'l Abner's or Daisy Mae's.
Overalls, blue jeans, old pants-
bright colored shirts, NO TIES-and
straw farmers' hats are suggested for
the men. Women's costumes may
range all the way from "Daisy Mae"
tattered shorts to old cotton dresses
and sunbonnets.
Fines Threatened
But hear yel if you men don't wear
bandanas, or at least 'come tie-less,
if you women don't wear sunbonnets,
or at least big hairribbons-the cos-
tume committee will be on your trail,
and you will be fined all the way up
to five pennies for your violation of
the evening's informality.
But for the best Li'l Abner and
Daisy Mae at the dance there will be
a special prize.,
For the city slickers, there will be
a "Blackout Dance" from 9 p.m. to
1 a.m. tomorrow, also in the Union.
All the aspects of a London bombing
will be preserved, even to the lighting
effects and precautionary measures
occasioned by the raids.

Dr. Moehiman
Gives Speech
On Education
Importance Of Training
For Democratic Life
Stressed In Talk
"The purpose of the public schools
is to train for individual and social
efficiency," asserted Dr.~" Arthur B.
Moehlman in his talk, "Te'aching
Democratic Competency," yesterday
in the Auditorium of the University
High School.
"The outstanding characteristics of
our democratic way of life are
idealism, individual participation,
fair play, classlessness, opportunity,
change by evolutionary methods, tol-
erance for other people and for dif-
ferent points of view."
The qualities essential for intelli-
gent participation in our democracy
include mental and emotional stabil-
ity, physical endurance, open mind-
edness, sound judgment, ability to
cooperate with others, moral courage,
reverence and audacity or the capacity
for and desire to explore the un-
known, to advance the frontiers of
knowledge and to blaze new trails.
"These purposes,'* Dr. Moehlman
declared, "are best promoted when
home, school, and community unite
to provide adequate opportunities for
youth in the school and within the
total community life. No single
agency is completely competent to do
the total job."
These qualities cannot be pro-
duced by over' emphasis of one phase
of learning to the detriment of oth-
ers, he continued. While it is neces-
sary to train for physical endurance,
our schools must not make the same
mistakes as ancient ,Sparta and its
totalitarian imitators.

citizenship takes precedence over
nationalism. Political institutions de-
velop loyalties by their mere opera-
tion; but they cannot operate
successfully if they are too far in ad-
vance of the existing sense of com-
every effort to build institutions
for the settlement of international
conflicts is, at an early stage in their
development, met by "a stubborn re-
fusal to see the state for what it is,
a means, not an end, a device for
harmonizing men's interests and en-
hancing their welfare, and a device
whose inadequacy under present
conditions clamors for structural im-
provement," Professor Corbett con-
cluded. "Overcome that form of na-
tionalism," he urged, "and firm
foundations can gradually.and care-
fully be laid for a democratic world

IT WAS NO SURPRISE TO US to hear "from usually reliable diplomatic
sources" that the President, Winston Churchill and Harry Hopkins held
a little conference on the war Tuesday somewhere in the middle of the
Atlantic Ocean. The $3,206,200,000 Congress is going to raise through the
new tax bill is practically in FDR's pockets now and he probably wanted to
get some advice from his free-spending pals on how to get rid of it in a
Hopkins, of course, had a lot of experience in spending American
taxpayers' money as head of the WPA and as Lease-Lend administrator
and Churchill is no rookie at the task either. Winston has finally
worked himself into the beautiful position where he can fight this war
to the last American dollar-and the last Russian soldier.
NOW that Hopkins has had a chance to go abroad and visit with the elite
of both Russia and England, he should be able to answer those two ques-
tions which have bothered the people of the United States for so long: (1)
Does Stalin really strain his soup with his moustache? (2) Does Bernard
Shaw sleep with his beard above or below the blankets? America is entitled
to the answers.
Breathes there a man
With soul so dead
To whom the President
Could have said:
"Here, you tell the people what their taxes are going to be like next
year, I haven't the heart."
THE BOYS in the army camps right now are plenty worried about being
kept there for the "duration."-it might turn out to be the "duration"
of Roosevelt's term of office. As far as we know, the selectees don't mind
life in the barracks so much, they just aren't interested in finding out how
"broadening" European travel can be. .
Secretary Ickes' successful experiment with "gasless Sunday" last
week proves that there are now three inevitable things in the United
States-death, taxes and Sunday drivers.
APPROXIMATELY 6,000,000 persons, comprising the entire state of Texas,
were invited to the wedding of Gov. Lee O'Daniel's daughter Molly in
Austin last Thursday. We imagine that groom Jack D. Wrather was very
glad that they all didn't stick around to kiss the bride.
Just before the first World War, the British were very worried about
the spread of German influence throughout the six continents. At that
time they were very much afraid that the Berlin to Baghdad railroad
(by way of Budapest, Belgrade and Bucharest) might possibly extend
north to Brussels and south to Bombay.

Ickes Seeks
Of Shoppers
WASHINGTON, Aug. 6.-()P)-Mil-
lions of shoppers in the East were
asked by Harold Ickes, Defense Oil
Coordinator, today to carry their own
purchases whenever possible to re-
duce gasoline consumption of delivery
The suggestion was one of five pro-
posals for gas conservation submitted
by Ickes to operators of' commercial
vehicles to combat a threatened pe-
troleum shortage on the Atlantic Sea-
board. The proposals followed his
recent request to filling station oper-.
ators to sell no gasoline between 7
p.m. and 7 a.m.
Today Ickes appealed to operators
of commercial vehicles, except those
used in national defense activities or
services essential to health and safe-
ty, to curtail consumption voluntar-
ily by:
1. Eliminating bulk and wholesale
deliveries on Saturdays.
2. Limiting retail deliveries ot not
more than one each day over a given
3. Reducing the deliveries of per-
ishables to as few each day as pos-
4. Eliminating special deliveries.
5. Vrging customers to cooperate
by carrying small packages instead of
requesting deliveries.
Meanwhile, Paul V. McNutt, Feder-
al Administrator, urged all service

jobs to register at state employment
