CLEANING and BLOCKING Guaranteed To Fit STANDARD HAT WORKS North Gate THE BATTALION -TUESDAY, JAN. 30, 1940 Land Grant Schools Back Research Bill Walton on Committee To Push Bill in Congress President T. O. Walton and A. B. Conner, director of the Agricul tural Experiment Station, returned to College Station Monday after a week’s trip to Washington, D. C. , where they attended the regu lar mid-winter meeting of the ex ecutive committee of the Associa tion of Land Grant Colleges and Universities of which Dr. Walton is chairman. Dr. Walton stated that the most important business taken up was that concerning the bill which the association is sponsoring for the purpose of providing funds for engineering and industrial research in all land grant colleges and uni versities in the United States. The bill has already passed the Nation al Resources Board and the Forest Department Board and will be in troduced to Congress sometime this week. If the bill is passed, and according to President Walton it has a good chance to do so } A. & M. will be greatly bene fited as will be many other schools, as industrial and engineering re search is a very important phase of American progress and funds are needed badly for carrying on the work. A sub-committee was appointed at th^ meeting and consisted of Dean E. B. Norris of V.P.I., chairman; Dean Ferguson of the University of Nebraska; and Dr. Walton. These men are supposed to look after the bill and see how it is progressing in Congress. President Walton said he saw plenty of snow in Washington— 10 inches, in fact. He also stated that on his trip up, there wasn’t a mile of ground between College Station and Washington that wasn’t covered with snow. REINHARD SHOWS INSECT COLLECTION H. J. Reinhard, entomologist, gave the Entomology Club a dem onstration of the insect collection of the Agricultural Experiment Station after the business meeting of that club Thursday night. This collection is composed almost en tirely of insects from Texas and is growing rapidly. The location of each insect on the shelf is facil itated by indexed files. Reinhard, who is credited with having made the collection what it is today, said in regard to the collection that the surface had just been scratched. East Gate Garage Burns, Destroying Four Automobiles A Sinclair filling station and garage located just north of the Blue Top Tourist Courts were tot ally ruined by a fire early Sun day morning. Four cars were in the garage at the time and all were destroyed. The fire, which was of unknown origin, started at 5 a. m. Sunday morning and lasted over an hour. Once the blaze got started, efforts of the College Station Fire De partment to save the buildings were of no avail. The buildings were valued at $3,. 600 and were owned by Forrest Jones of Bryan, who had $2,000 worth of insurance on them. Oper ators of the station were H. T. Holland and Clyde Clark. The owners of the four demol ished cars were R. H. Hensel, Ford Motor Co. of Bryan, J. W. Graves, and a student whose name could not be determined. It is believed that three of the owners had in surance on their cars. The Ford Motor Co. had a new Ford on dis play that had only been driven three miles—the only part left worth reclaiming was the motor. SENIORS TO GET MILITARY CHECKS Commutation of subsistence pay ments to members of the second advanced course in military science will be made this afternoon be ginning at 3:00 o’clock in room 102, Academic Building, according to an announcement made by the Commandant’s Office yesterday. Payments to members of the first advanced course will be made at the same time and place on Wednesday afternoon, Sergeant King of the Military Department announced Monday. This payment will represent the first subsistence allowance to mem bers of the first advanced course and the second to members of the second advanced course for the present school year. Payment to junior students without drill or class absences will be $25.50 and the senior students $23.00 provid ed they have no unauthorized ab sences. Students who have classes at 3:00 should report as soon as class is over, Sergeant King stated. Any authorized regular or laboratory uniform may be worn. The total military payroll for this payment to A. & M. juniors and seniors is $22,100. Bank Night— (Continued from page 1) of all the players on the Aggie team, and presented it to Bert Pfaff, donor of the best-blocker trophies. A surprise gift from Jesse Hol man Jones, federal loan adminis- tratof and friend of the college, was the next to be uncovered. Mr. Jones donated to the lettermen and to Coach Norton costly 21-jewel lifetime Elgin gold pocket watches. The Chase Holland jewelry store of San Angelo next presented the entire team and Coach Norton each with a sterling silver spur tie clip having a “T” bearing across it in gold the word “Aggies.” The original drawing of the play-by-play picture of the Sugar Bowl game drawn by Francis “Nig” Miller was presented to Coach Nor ton as a remembrance by Ralph “Andy” Anderson of the Houston Press. Andy also presented John Kimbrough with another All-Amer ican award, this one from Paul B. Williamson, keeper of a national football rating system. In choosing the best blocker on the Aggie team, Bert Pfaff, ex- Aggie and oil man of Tyler, could narrow his choice to no fewer than two, so he presented dupli cate awards of Longine wrist watches to Herb Smith and James Thomason. Thomason received the award last year also. To the three co-captains of the team during the past season—Joe Boyd, Herb Smith, and Walemon Price—the Aggieland Pharmacy presented Sheaffer lifetime foun tain pen and pencil sets; and its most-valuable-player award, a pen and pencil desk set with engraved gold plaque, went to John Kim brough. Coach Norton also re ceived a framed pennant bearing the 1939 schedule of the Aggie. All senior squad men will receive passes to the 1940 corps dances as a courtesy of the social com mittee, it was announced by social secretary Charlie Hamner. All- Conference men and all coaches were presented wallets by the Kreuger Engraving Company. Non lettering squadmen got consola tion awards of engraved leather billfolds from Lipscomb’s Phar macy. The school awarded all squadmen expensive handbags. In the past it has been the cus^ tom to present the teams that won the conference championship with Officer^, and Secret Service agent Leo J. Williams has warned East Texas merchants to watch for counterfeit half dollars and quarters. A flood of t*ne spurious coins, all date 1935 and 1937, have been circulating in this section re cently. gold footballs. This year, since the team not only won the confer ence, but was untied and undefeated and named Number 1 in the na tion, the council decided to make the awards unique gold footballs appropriately embossed and stud ded with diamonds. National Champ— (Continued from page 1) America,” “Shortenin’ Bread,” and “Marching Musketeers.” All 54 members of the squad were at liberty to bring members of their family and their sweet hearts, and they did. Toastmaster Ashburn had the boys rise to their feet and introduce their guests to the large audience. Speaker of the evening was Dr. F. M. Law, president of the A. & M. Board of Directors, who began by congratulating the “champion ship” Glee Club and inviting them to sing in Houston in the near future. He praised New Orleans officials and citizens for the excellent treatment of visitors and for the efficient manner in which they handled the crowd. He re called the days when he, himself, was a student at A. & M., during which time the first football team was started. Mr. Law called speci al attention to the article that ap peared in “Life” magazine two years ago depicting Texas A. & M. as “nationally unknown.” “The foot ball team has gone a long way in remedying this defect,” he said. “In fact,” he stated, “in the last four months this college has received more recognition than that maga zine!” The Aggie football team was the special subject of Mr. Law’s praise. “They showed themselves to be the champions they are when they were able to get up off the floor and fight to a victory. They have strengthened the bond that binds all graduates from Aggie land together. Aggies and ex-Ag- gies stick together all over the world because the school has the most college spirit of all the col leges in the nation.” Then he de clared that A. & M. is blessed with the finest coaching staff in the na tion. The 210-piece Aggie Band was the next subject of Dr. Law’s praise and approval. According to Dr. Law it is the best band in the world. He said, “My wife and I always get a thrill from listening to the Aggie Band.”.. He also said that if there was any doubt of the Band’s making the trip to Califor nia with the team next year to dis pel all doubts, because it is defi nitely slated to go. In speaking of next year’s sched ule, Dr. Law showed that the Council had tried to arrange games with the University of Southern California and also with Ohio State, but it was decided that such a long trip would keep the boys away from their studies for too long a time. Besides, as he said, a champion has its privileges in defending its crown. Those schools should try to come to A. & M. for a game sometime. Texas A. & M. is not a college set in cold-blooded money-making. Even though the failure to schedule these games meant losing nearly $100,000, the emphasis here is still placed on education. Dr. Law’s closing remarks urg ed the followers of the team to make themselves like Janus, the two-headed Roman god, and look proudly on the past and hopefully to the future. “Hats off to the past; coats off to the future!” he concluded. Following the address of the evening, Coach Homer Norton an nounced the lettermen, and that started the avalanche of gifts and awards that a proud citizenry and a prouder student body showered on them. Jackets, watches, cups, silver tie clasps, billfolds, blankets, and medals were a part of the “loot” that the boys carried home with them. Those who had not had the chance to see the technicolor pic tures of the Sugar Bowl game were invited to stay and see them after the close of the evening’s festivities.

His own common sense and smoking expe rience tell him what scientists have confirmed in their research laboratories—that"slow-burn- ing cigarettes are extra mild, extra cool, fra grant, and fiavorful.” Cigarettes that burn fast just naturally burn hot. And nothing so surely wrecks the delicate elements of cigarette fla vor and fragrance as excess heat. The delight ful mildness, coolness, fragrance, and flavor of Camels are explained by this —Camels proved to be the slowest-burning cigarette of the sixteen largest-selling brands tested!
