The campus conflict: self vs.
Roommates are just, by nature,
hard to get along with, but here
are some tips that will help
you win the coveted “Most Popu
lar Roommate on Campus” a-
1. Find out what kind of music
he despises and then play sever
al albums of it on your stereo.
Although he might seem very
displeased he will lated be grate
ful to you for improving his cul
2. Never buy any toothpaste,
hair oil, soap, shaving cream
or deodorant. By all means,
USE these ingredients, just don’t
BUY them. By using his tooth
paste, etc., you can build up a
mutual understanding of the nec
essities of life and your span
as roommates will be complete
3. Always put your cigarettes
out on the floor. If your room
mate is the tidy type, he will ap
preciate this gesture for they
will serve as floorsweep to ga
ther the dust when he applies
the broom each day.
4. Be sure to let him do all the
housework: sweeping, mopping,
cleaning Venetian blinds, beat
ing rugs. This will teach him
habits of cleanliness and he will
be endowed to you forever. If
you really feel generous and
really want to make him your
lifelong friend, suggest that he
make up your bed each morning.
5. Invite a crowd in for dom
inoes or poker on the night be
fore your roomie’s major quiz.
He will inevitably retire to the
library to pursue his studies. And
the next day he will thank you
for running him off, because he
might have otherwise sacked out
instead of studying.
6. Continually tell him how
great you are. This will cause
him to recognize his deficiencies
and do something about them.
Stress your popularity with the
Bill No. 290...

8. Borrow money from him
whenever you get the chance and
always be delinquent in repay

will discover that his personality
needs adjustment and will make

“This legislation will help rid

The bill’s title proclaims that

While not in complete agree

he has a possible solution. Let’s
change the name, again, to the
State University of Texas, or any
name desired so long as it does
not contain the letters A&M.
By doing this we have indeed

a clean death. We show mercy

An assistant attorney general
of Texas said today the “Good
Samaritan Law” passed by the
legislature in 1961 is a good
law although it has not been
tested in appellate courts.
The speaker was Ivan Williams,
a member of the State and Coun
ty Affairs Division of the At
torney General’s Office. He spoke
during a Wednesday session of
the Ambulance Drivers School
being conducted on campus.
“In effect the law changed the
common law regarding the lia
bility of passers-by in regard to
accidents. Prior to that time, an
injured person you stopped to
help could sue on a claim that
you caused his condition to wor
sen,” Williams commented.
Williams said the “Good Sa
maritan Law” provides civil im
munity for people who stop and
render aid at the scene of an
“This does not include people
who are there to make money,
as I see it,” he continued.
Williams explained there is no
law which says a person has to
stop and render aid at the scene
of an accident. “Usually, a per
son feels a moral obligation to
help and does not consider the
possibilities of civil action again
st him,” he said.
He emphasized, however, that
a person who is involved in an
accident in any way is legally
responsible for failure to stop
and render aid.
The speaker is a former stu
dent of A&M. He transferred to
the University of Texas Law
School at the end of his junior
Other speakers Wednesday
morning were W. E. Naylor,
agent-incharge of the Narcotics
Section of the Texas Department
of Public Safety; Dr. T. O. Wal
ton of College Station; Royce L.
Ashcraft, director of the Division
of Hospital and Ambulance Lic
ensing, Texas State Department
of Health, and Dr. Charles Lyons,
director of student health serv
ices at Texas A&M.
