That almost packed auditorium for the Womannless Wedding was really a sight--it was as much fun for the audience as it was for the cast[ At least now we know where the McGarity kidg got their musical talent!! We were in Dallas this weekend for the Cowboy-Cardinal game. Different styles for women that me saw were again pantshits and long dresses. But, would you believe the MIDI? It's shown in wool with a mock turtleneck sweater, boots, and cape m" poncho On some people it would look real good! Colors were burgundy, blues, browns and grays. All the men everywhere had on bow ties. Attending the UT-Tech game in Austin this last weekend were Buddy and Margaret Knorpp, Walt and Janice,  and Todd and Donna.

The Homecoming Queen will also be presented to the football fans before the game. Wonder who it will be? by DAVID EVERMAN Last Mother's Day Bobby Riggs and Margaret Court met in the first match between tennis professionals of different sexes. The match was unpublicized, an oversight that Riggs rectified in the following weeks. After the 'Mother's Day Massacre, 'as the Riggs-Court match was known, Riggs challenged any woman tennis player to a $100,000 winner-take-all tennis match. It took him quite a while to get an oppenent, which is hard to believe since I would step out onto the court for a chance at a. hundred thou. But we all know what a rabbity-looking lady named Billie Jean King did to Riggs, and we all know that Riggs, with his indefatigable male chauvinism, can not let such a defeat stand. "1 will show up these women's libbers in the next few weeks. Women can be beaten in so many things I'm bound to find something to beat them in," Riggs stated after the basting given him by Ms. King. However, other bastions of male chauvinism have decided not to wait for Riggs' comeback. Graham Kerr has challenged Julia Child in femininity's own territory, cooking. Kerr has given Ms. Child the home-kitchen advantage and a twenty-minute lead in warming her oven. Marion Brando and Jane Fonda are reportedly going to have it out to see who gets custody of the American Indian Movement in its fight against Hollywood. The loser will get his choice of teepees and 300 pounds of pemmican, while the winner gets the option of scalping the loser plus leadership of the AIM. Howard Cosell has thrown the gauntlet at the feet of Martha Mitchell for the title of Most Obnoxious Personality. The winner will be given an NBC talk show. Coseii is reportedly a 3 to 2 favorite on the Las Vegas circuit. However, the story of the day is Roy Rogers' coming out of retirement to challenge Princess Anne to a riding contest. Roy has graciously given the Princess her choice of English or Western saddles. Roy has stated, however, that he will not ride sidesaddle. Wedding nets $312 In response to the many questions asked,  The Press is glad tO announce The Womanless Wedding netted $312, which will he given to the Donley County Living History Commission.

Clarendon Junior College Financial Aids Director Loyd Waters traveled to Houston Wednesday to attend the annual Texas Association of Financial Aids Administration meeting. He should return to Clarendon some time tomorrow. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss current Federal financial aid programs and to request funds for the federal programs for 1974. Clarendon Junior College participates in all Federally funded financial aid programs available to higher educational institutions. These programs are the Basic Education Opportunity Grants (BEOG), the Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (SEOG), the College Work-Study Program and the National Direct Student Loans (NDSL). A state-funded program is the Hinson-Hazelwood Loan available only to students from Texas. There are presently about 130 students attending Clarendon College under these financial aid programs. Waters emphasized the fact that these programs work for students of all ages, not only for those just out of high school. He said that some students 50-60 years old were attending school under these programs. "Even with the price of education the highest it has ever been, through these federal programs the government has made it easier for a student desiring to further his education to attend the college or university of his choice. There are ways for everyone so desiring to further his education, regardless of age, race, religion or whatever," Waters commented. It is no longer a requirement that all students attending school under these programs be from low-income families, as that rule made the programs extremely unpopular. "Anyone interested in one of these financial aid programs, either presently in school or planning to enroll should contact me or come by the Financial Aids office at the college for more information," added Waters.
