The Tiger, un- dergradute newspaper at Clemson College, has thrown its full edi torial weight into a movement to stop coeds from wasting the valu able time of Clemson men. Listen to this: “A good many girls have the mistaken idea that ‘dates’ are more appreciative of feminine charm if they are made to wait. The Tiger registers its protest. It will stand up for anyone who just leaves in disgust and lets that ‘waiting’ date wait.” THE BATTALION “IT’S CAPTAIN BILL KENNEDY NOW,” STATES ARMY AIR CORPS Captain William L. Kennedy, ex- Aggie in the air corps at Kelly Field, Texas, recently received notification of his promotion to the grade of captain, with rank from January 6, 1940. Captain Kennedy first entered the service as a flying cadet on October 25, 1928, when he enter ed the Air Corps Primary Flying School; he graduated October 12, 1929, in the bombardment section, Air Corps Advanced Flying School, Kelly Field, Texas. He then ac cepted appointment as a Second Lieutenant, Air Corps Reserve, on October 12, 1929 and was on ex tended active duty as a reserve officer until February 3, 1930. He was appointed a second lieutenant in the regular army on January 6, 1930; held a temporary ap pointment as first lieutenant from March 12, 1935 to July 31, 1936, receiving his permanent appoint ment in that grade on August 1, 1935. Captain Kennedy’s home is in Beaumont, Texas, and he graduat ed from A. & M. with the degree of bachelor of science with the class of 1928. He is also a gradu ate of the Air Corps Technical School (Armament Course). He was assigned to duty at Kelly Field, Texas, on April 8, 1935, where he has served successfully as post armament officer and range officer, agent finance officer, commandant of flying cadets, sup ply officer of the Gulf Weather Station, flying instructor in the bombardment section, and his lat est assignment is chief of section IV, the ACAFS. He holds areo- nautical ratings of pilot and com bat observer. Airport— (Continued from page 1) Captain M. F. Clark of Houston is expected here this week or the first of next week to rate the ground school and inspect the field for the C. A. A., Mr. T. H. Coffelt announced. Dean Gilchrist also stated that plans were still being considered for securing additional aviation equipment and perhaps lights and lighting equipment. The new flying field is on a direct line between Barksdale Field, Shreveport, Louisiana, and Randolph and Kelly Fields at San Antonio, Texas, and as a result officers of the United States Army Air Corps are interested in the es tablishment of an adequate field in this community. The field can be used by the Army as an emer gency landing field for long-dis tance flights between the two army posts and can also be used as the terminal for short cross-country flights from these ports. There is some probability that the equipment on the field at Nav- asota may be available for the new field. This equipment is valued at approximately $40,000. Students taking the C. A. A. ground course have described the course as “just like reading a novel” and say that it resembles other college courses only in that it is held in a school building. Traveling Aggie— (Continued from page 1) they were well advanced in archi tecture. Pompeii also had a MEN ONLY room. It was in one of the most elaborate homes and probably the private room of one of the rich old evilminded Romans. The walls were covered with paintings of couples in all the intimate poses of the boudoir art, which goes to show that those ‘just from Paris’ maga zines that float around in the U. S. A. weren’t anything new. Also in this room was a fountain that at one time stood in the garden of one of the these homes. It was a nude statue of a very virile young man—and I said it was a fountain, so turn your imagina tion loose. We believed it authen tic because there was no extra charge for entrance to the room. After leaving Pompeii we made the famous and beautiful Amalfi Drive, one of the finest coast drives—if not the finest—in Eu rope. The drive is along the moun tainous coast of the Mediterranean between Vietri and Positano. As we weaved along the crooked moun tain road the wide ravines and precipitous cliffs all but took our breath away. The rocky slopes were covered with grapevines, olive trees, lemon groves, and white houses. The deep blue of the Mediterranean a hundred feet below added to a scene of inde scribable beauty. In places the houses were so thick on the moun tain side that it appeared to be a mountain of houses. We stopped at the Hotel Santa Caterina in Amalfi for lunch con sisting mostly of spaghetti and red wine. We ate on the terrace over looking the Mediterranean and were entertained by an Italian or chestra, mostly by the musician that contributed to the orchestra tion by giving a Bronx cheer into a large earthen jar. A fountain in the center of the square of one of the small towns between Amlfi and Naples attract ed our attention. It was a statue of a buxom young lady holding a breast in each hand and a stream of water jetting forth from each. We arrived back at the ship in time for dinner and sailed just before dark. As we went out we passed near the Isle of Capri. And on to Africa. We landed at Alexandria Sept. 15, our six teenth day from New York and were eager to leave our life of leisure and get our feet on solid ground again. We cleared customs in about two hours and caught a train for Cairo. We were in the Expert Radio Repair STUDENT CO-OP Phone No. 139 North Gate MEN! Are you interested in a GOOD HAIR CUT?

And it was very different from anything that we had ever seen. The Arabs worked in gangs in the fields and the only farm imple ments that we saw were hoe and shovel. Not once did we spot a plow, much less a tractor. We saw everything from bananas to wheat growing in the valley.
