DAVID ERLE HAIRSTON Former Miss EraJyn McLarty Miss Eralyn McLarty and David Erie Hairston repeated vows Monday in a double ring ceremony at the First United Methodist Church of Bryan, the Rev. Weldon Morton officiating. Wedding selections were presented by Mrs. Fern Hamman, organist, and Jim Austin, soloist. Given in marriage by her father, the bride chose a formal gown of candlelight Alencon lace encrusted in pearls. The capelet bodice of lace was designed with a high neckline. Brief sleeves were complemented by short gloves. The soft gathered skirt had a detachable train which flowed to chapel length. Her veil of silk illusion floated from a headpiece of pearls and lace. She carried an Edwardian cluster of ivory roses interspersed with purple status and purple aster buds. Mrs. W. A. Hutchison III of Austin served as matron of honor. Bridesmaids were Misses Barbara Boyan of Dallas, Catherine Hitt of Houston, and Jennie Hairston, of San Antonio, sister of the groom. Attendants wore formal gowns of turquoise Alaskine combined with silk organza. The covered bodices were designed with a high neckline. Small headpieces of purple organza accented their colonial bouquets of purple asters and turquoise carnations. SAVE UP TO 50% ON PRESCRIPTIONS Low Overhead — Low Prices.

DISCOUNT APOTHECARY (The Small Store With Big Discounts) 3109 Texas Avenue 823-0029 Time for Another Openin’ - Another Show .Bv THYRA PLASS .Eagle Music Critic Suddenly Labor Day is over, autumn has come, and as Cole Porter so exuberantly wrote in “Kiss me Kate” it is time for “Another Op’nin’, Another Show.” In Bryan-College Station that means a goodly number of openings and shows for an area of our size. Sometimes we who have lived here for awhile are hardly aware of all that is offered while newcomers are often confused about which to choose in available entertainment. Today we shall point out some of the highlights of the Town Hall Series presented by Texas A&M University. Although one buys only a single ticket (at a ridiculously low price), one actually is acquirng admission to two series: Artist Showcase which includes five concerts of so- called classical or serious music and Town Hall which contains five programs of assorted “pops.” Artist Showcase is aimed particularly at faculty, graduate students, and townspeople. Town Hall is designed to attract undergraduates and teen-agers in general. Of course there is always the hope that there will be an evergrowing audience with cosmopolitan o r catholic enough tastes to want to attend all the concerts of this extremely diversified series. We doubt that any campus in the country can compete in the great variety offered under one ticket. Parents may choose to buy the tickets so that thev can go to Artist Showcase performances and then loan the tickets to their teen-agers for the Town Hall evenings. For that matter, perhaps teen-agers would like to buy the Town Hall series and then loan their tickets to their parents for the concerts of serious music. Personally, we hope that most teen-agers are widening their interests enough to insist on going to all the concerts. Artist Showcase has come up with the most attractive programming in its history (and all on a shoestring budget which Wayne Stark with some kind of black magic manages to stretch over five concerts). Every program has definite merit ' and is interesting enough to bring out a full house even though the night is rainy, foggy or one just Calendar Hairston - McLarty Doug Belzung of San Antonio was best man. Groomsmen were Jimmy Lawrence of San Antonio, Jack Kern of Buffalo, N.Y., and Don Sturr of Houston. Steve Fallen of Ennis was usher. Mike McGown of Bryan and James Miculka of San Antonio were candlelighters. A reception was held in the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. E. C. McLarty, Jr., of 203 College View in Bryan.

The Dallas Symphony hardly needs any introduction to our B-CS audience after its triumphal concerts for children and teen-agers last spring. Again the orchestra will return with these young people’s concerts as well as the evening one slated for Artist Showcase. The Artist Showcase concert will be conducted By Anshel Brusilaw who is quite new to Texans but who comes here with an almost infallible pedigree. The brilliant young Alegria Arce, who is reallv a Texan product, is the pianist this season. She will also be playing with the Houston Symphony this winter. Houston, too, is betting that her stature in the musical world will take on considerable heights. Joy Davidson, again unknown to us, is the singer of the season. This is a refreshing idea since we have not had the opportunity of hearing a vocal soloist here in recent times. Top critics, both here and abroad, give her mezzo-soprano voice and musicianship rave reviews as well as her charm and dramatic ability. Michael Lorimer will bring to us classical guitar. Like most young guitarists of merit he is a protege of Segovia. Even more impressive is the fact that High Fidelity- Musical America selected him as one of the most promising Young Artists of 1969. There is a great following here for guitar of all kinds, and this young man may well be intriguing to an audience of all ages. Last, but far from least, is the illustrious Julliard String Quartet. We are so fortunate that the Julliard had an available date, that W 2 could afford it. and that our management had the faith to bring us another chamber music concert of this calibre after last year’s fiasco. The Guarneri Quartet, considered by many to be the finest in the world, played to a mere handful of people. The previous year the Hungarian Quartet played to a standing room audience. Let us not be that fickle. The Julliard mav well be the musical highlight of the whole season for those concerned with perfectionism. Let us support it to the fullest! Town Hall opens this very Friday night with a bang-up rock concert as a prelude to Saturday’s homecoming game. Two groups will be performing: “The Original Caste” and “Pacific Gas and Electric.” The latter is not a stock market listing! One of the finest balladeers in the country, Glenn Yarbrough, will combine both folk and popular songs on his Oct. 9 date. Although new to this area he is widely heralded on the west coast and has a tremendous campus following all over the nation. The story of his life and of his character is so stimulating that one might well think it worth listening to him just talk if he didn’t bother to sing a note. October holds another quite special concert with the appearance of the Frenchman, Paul Mauriat and his Orchestra. In a way he will mean to this season what Montavani did to last season. Again, it will be a man with a superb classical background who has channeled his talents into the world of “pops.’ However, Mauriat goes even further than Montavani in this respect. Somehow he goes all the way from light classics to hard rock, emphasizing the best qualities of each. Almrst everyone is familiar with his “Love is Blue” whch sold over 4 million copies m Mauriat’s original arrangement. Civilian Student Weekend is still to be announced. The fifth program in the Town Hall series is the Fred Waring Show which is sponsored by Rotary, and is referred to as the Rotary Crossover. It will be at leaK the third time, if not more for the Waring Show to come to B-CS. Fred Waring, a phenomenon in American music, easily appeals to three generations. No wonder he is good when one considers he has the know-how of 53 seasons “on the road.” Town Hall season tickets (remember this also includes Artist Showcase) may still be purchased by writing to Memorial Student Center, Student Program Office, P. 0. Box 5718, College Station, Texas 77840, calling the Student Program Office at 845-1515 in the Memorial Student Center, or by stopping by the box office at the same location. Checks are payable to Texas A&M University. Prices of $11.50 for A&M faculty and staff and $13.50 for townspeople are most modest for all that is offered. tlie reader â column .
