Page 2 THE BATTALION College Station, Texas Thursday, March 17, 1960 Worth Mentioning By Johnny Johnson After today’s activities in the Coliseum let’s hope that many of the Men of Aggieland are going around for a few days with sore arms. Of course to sore arms is the expected 400 men who are to donate blood to the College Station Lions Club and Student Senate Blood Drive. Speaking of sore arms, Army ROTC juniors are com plaining of sore arms from their multitude of shots in pre paration for summer camp. ★ ★ ★ Monday night the Arts and Sciences Council, composed of a junior and a senior representative from each department or division in the School of Arts and Sciences, will revive the question of whether or not Texas A&M should have an honor code. ^ The honor code question is one that/dates back in re cent years to the 1957-58 school year when a group of Corps juniors started work on the code. That group got so far as to even have a proposed code. During last year, many meetings were held on the proposed code with the project being finally dropped for lack of interest. The planned action Monday night by the Arts and Sciences Council will be the first organ ized activity on an honor code for the 1959-60 school year. If the members of the Arts and Sciences Council can discover a Job Calls The following companies will conduct job interviews with grad uating seniors Friday in the Placement Office on the third floor of the YMCA: International Paper Co. will in terview candidates for degrees in chemical, electrical and mechan ical engineering. Monsanto Chemical Co. will in terview degree candidates in chemistry, chemical and mechan ical engineering. Pacific Finance Corp. has scheduled job interviews with candidates for degrees in ac- cdunting, business administra tion, economics, finance, insur ance, marketing, mathematics and personnel administration. . San Bernardino Air Material Area is scheduling interviews with prospective graduates in aeronautical, electrical, indus trial and mechanical engineering. U. S. Patent Office will inter view candidates for degrees in electrical and mechanical engi neering, chemistry and physics. ( Aerofin Corp. will interview degree candidates in mechanical engineering.

In August trial and mechanical engineering, they switched positions. way to make the plan work, they will certainly accomplish a large job. The problems involved in in stituting an honor code at Texas A&M are many. Unlike the serv ice academies—which are the ma jor educational institutions that have honor codes—Texas A&M does not select its students as do the academies. For the honor- code to be workable, every . stu dent at Texas A&M must be either honest when he arrives at Texas A&M or be of such a char acter that he would abide by the honor code. As evidenced by the numerous thefts from physical education clashes lockers, petty thievery in the dorms and the incident in volving an honor system for pur chasing candy described in a re cent letter to the Editor by Jack Cooper, ’59, Texas A&M at pres ent does not Boast a 100 per cent enrollment of honest men. Any honor code would be val ueless if only one person did not abide by ij. For the good of Texas A&M, we hope that the Arts and Sci ences Council will approach the problem in such a way that they will be able to .accomplish what could not be done before. ★ ★ One of the two wires sent by 1,180 members of the Corps of Cadets has brought results.

Since the last maritime con ference, Iran and Panama have pushed their sea borders out to ward the 12-mile limit.

But these are not effective without agreement on where a nation’s sovereign rights should end and the open sea begin. Many maritime nations still abide by the 3-mile limit gen erally accepted since the time of sailing and naval guns that could not shoot that far. But more and more smaller and younger coun tries have pushed their sea bor ders beyond that limit, both for security reasons and to keep for eign travelers from offshire fish ing grounds. The insistence of many Latin- American and Asian countries and the Communist bloc forced the leading maritime nations to drop the principle of the 3-mile limit in favor of a U. S.-British compromise proposal—6 miles for territorial waters and 12 miles for exclusive fishing rights.
