THE BATTALION Page 2 College Station, Texas Tuesday, February 11, 1964 CADET SLOUCH by Jim Earle INTELLIGENCE EXPERT BATTALION EDITORIALS H ~s A Long Way— But There Is A Way It’s a long way to Lubbock and Texas Tech—that’s where the Aggies will be tonight looking for that seventh straight conference win. There are probably not too many Ags who are going to be able to travel the distance between here and Lubbock. But The Battalion staff has discovered that it cost just pen nies to send a GOOD LUCK telegram. We know because we sent one to Coach Metcalf and his team. Now we would like to see a bunch of telegrams go out to Lubbock. For about $2 one can get 15 words or less off to the team in Lubbock. Just send it to: Coach Shelby Metcalf Lubbock Municipal Coliseum Lubbock, Texas While we’re at it we might as well go all out for that bunch of cagers. They’ve been playing some real fine ball this season and have given all us Aggies something to talk about. The best thing we can do is let those men know we appreciate the extra effort they’ve been putting out to get some of the games. The exact time of arrival in College Station for the team’s chartered flight is not available, but sometime late today Easterwood Airport should have some idea. Now there wouldn’t be a thing wrong with several thou sands Ags being on hand to greet those cagers when they step out of that airplane. And that means win, lose or draw— and we’re pretty confident that the latter two possibilities are out. Soviet Secret Police Agent Asks United States Asylum Barry Blasts Rights Bill THATCHER, Ariz. (IP) — Re publican Sen. Barry Goldwater told a Negro college student Monday night the civil rights bill passed by the House “may cause more trouble than good” in the fight to end racial dis crimination. Goldwater, campaigning for the Republican presidential nom ination, answered students’ ques tions in a crowded cafeteria at Eastern Arizona Junior College. Goldwater said the section granting the attorney general more power to deal with defi ance of school integration or ders may be hopeful. “I don’t think the rest of the package is going to accomplish much, in fact it may cause more harm than good,” he said. The senator said he doesn’t see how the government can en force the section barring dis crimination in public accomoda tions.

With the U. S. rather miffed, to say the least, at British firms selling buses to Cuba and will ing to extend more than five years of credit to the Soviet Union, and the British peeved at the fact that the U. S. is finacially supporting Sukarno who, in turn, is causing the Bri tish to use 6,000 troops to keep down Indonesian guerilla war fare on the Malaysian border, it is rather obvious that the two countries could stand an ani- able agreement. Sir Alec has already expressed his wish for a Anglo-U. S. for eign policy “That would be in tune and harmonious to that of the U. S.” President Johnson has also expressed his desire for such accord lay dispatching a trouble-shooting team to co-ordi nate Anglo-American policy on the Cyprus situation. Despite the opinion of those who feel that the “special rela tionship” between England and the U. S. is fast due for the scrap heap, one should pause and remember that if ever there are two nations in the world today who are able to sit down and talk things over for the mutual interest of both countries, it is Britain and the United States. This in no way means that our foreign policy should be sub ject to the approval of the Bri tish every time we feel like tak ing a step, but it would not hurt at all for both countries to pre sent a united front, and thus both benefit. The very nature of Britain’s geographical position and her population leave her no choice but to export or die. We, who are in contrast, well able to pros per by means of domestic trade, tend to sometimes forget Eng land’s plight and consequently allow our own foreign policy to run right across theirs, when it could if handled right, parallel theirs and benefit both of us. The immediate application of such a policy could be at the moment of Russia’s antagonistic attitude toward a settlement of the Cyprus issue. The British spent almost 10 haggard years trying to rid themselves of the island of Cyprus. Except for the right to maintain bases there, they probably wouldn’t be too perturbed if the whole island sank. years. In this post, the sources said he had access to Soviet defense secrets and negotiating plans for the disarmament conference which resumed in Geneva Jan. 21. It was believed in Geneva that Nossenko’s information could be of immense value to Western disarmament negotiators and de fense strategists. But this de fection also might harden the Soviet position in the two-year- old conference. Nossenko, 36, repor-tedly de scribed himself as a “staff of ficer” of the KGB, the top-level Soviet agency in charge of ga thering intelligence and counter intelligence. The three initials stand for Komitet Gosudarstven- noy Bezopasnosti. A terse statement by State Department press officer Rich ard I. Phillips said that Nos senko had been assigned on tem- As for the U. S., we certainly have no ambition to occupy Cy prus for national gain. I can’t help thinking what the effect may have been on the Russians if we had replied to Krushchev at the same time and in the same vein as Prime Minister Home’s terse rebuke.

Benjamin Franklin (or The Louisville Slugger, as he is better known as) said, “A penny saved is a penny earned,” and we, the college population of America, have taken to heart this sage advice. We spend prudently; we budget diligently. Yet, despite our wise precautions, we are always running short. Why? Be cause there is one item of expense that we consistently under estimate—the cost of travelling home for weekends. Let us take the typical case of Basil Metabolism, a sophomore at UCLA majoring in avocados. Basil, a resident of Bangor, Maine, loved to go home each weekend to play with his faithful dog, Spot. What joy, what wreathed smiles, when Basil and Spot were re-united! Basil would leap into his dogcart, and Spot, a genuine Alaskan husky, would pull Basil all over Bangor, Maine—Basil calling cheery halloos to the townfolk, Spot wagging his curly tail. Soil survey outhern Si iampus thr egional pla essions ar Memorial S ,ng to conf< Cooner, sta Conservatioi Dr. Curtis vice-chairma Godfrey, the Texas A Station, sai ticipants wc 1? ( FI RAft L Conv< But the cost, alas, of travelling from UCLA to Bangor, Maine, ran to $400 a week, and Basil’s father, alas, earned only a meagre salary as a meter-reader for the Bangor water depart ment. So, alas, after six months Basil’s father told Basil he could raise no more money; he had already sold everything he owned, including the flashlight he used to read meters. Basil returned to California to ponder his dilemma. One solution occured to him—to ship Spot to UCLA and keep him in his room—but Basil had to abandon the notion because of his roommate, G. Fred Sigafoos, who was, alas, allergic to dog hair. Then another idea came to Basil—a stroke of genius, you might call it. He would buy a Mexican hairless chihuahua! Thus he would have a dog to pull him around, and G. Fred’s allergy would be undisturbed. The results, alas, were not all Basil had hoped. The chihua hua, alas, was unable to pull Basil in the dogcart, no matter how energetically he beat the animal. Defeated again, Basil sat down with G. Fred, his roommate, to smoke a Marlboro Cigarette and seek a new answer to the problem. Together they smoked and thought and—Eureka!— an answer quickly appeared. (I do not suggest, mark you, that Marlboro Cigarettes are an aid to cerebration. All I say about Marl boros is that they taste good and are made of fine tobaccos and pure white filters and come in soft pack or Flip Top box.) Well, sir, Basil and G. Fred got a great idea. Actually, the idea was G. Fred’s, who happened to be majoring in genetics. Why not, said G. Fred, cross-breed the chihuahua with a Great Dane and thus produce an animal sturdy enough to pull a dog cart? It was, alas, another plan doomed to failure. The cross-breed ing was done, but the result (this is very difficult to explain) was a raccoon. But there is, I am pleased to report, a happy ending to this heart-rending tale. It seems that Basil’s mother (this is also very difficult to explain) is a glamorous blond aged 19 years. One day she was spotted by a talent scout in Bangor, Maine, and was signed to a fabulous movie contract, and the entire family moved to California and bought Bel Air, and today one of the most endearing sights to be seen on the entire Pacific Coast is Spot pulling Basil down Sunset Boulevard—Basil cheering and Spot wagging. Basil’s mother is also happy, making glamorous movie's all day long, and Basil’s father is likewise content, sit ting at home and reading the water meter.
