COL GEO. F. MOORE, Commandant FACULTY DINNER DANCE The Annual Faculty Dinner Dance will be held in Sbisa Hall annex at 7 p. m. Thursday, February 29. Plates are $1.00 per person, in addi tion to the regular $1.00 per couple (or season ticket) for dancing. Plate charges may be paid at the door. It is planned to have a continuous “No Host” table. This plan seemed very satis factory to every one attending last year, as it has certain obvious advantages over the system of having several party tables. Arrangements can be made, as last year, for group parties at the continuous table, where this is desired. Any non-dancing members of the Faculty Group desiring to attend the dinner will be most welcome, while those who find it impossible to at tend the dinner but who can attend the dance in the latter part of the evening are cordially invited to do so. Charges, nly for the in. ack le Aggieland orchestra. Decorations will be in the mood of St. Patrick.

For those students who live in places other than mentioned above, a ballot box will be placed in the rotunda of the Academic Building early Friday morning and will re main until the close of the contest. The winners in the first primary will be announced in next Tues day’s Battalion and the runoff be tween the five high men will be held the following week. At a yet undecided date, a special yell practice will be called and the win ner will be crowned “King of the Uglies” with proper and fitting ceremony. At this time he will also be presented with the honor ary degree, B. U. (Bachelor of Ugliness) and his picture will ap pear in The Battalion and possi bly the T.S.C.W. Lass-O. All cadets are eligible to vote and ballots need not be signed. With the exception of the forty-one committee members, Fuermann, and The Battalion editor Bill Mur- r\± -y stUv.-; Voting, students may vote for anyone they desire with the excep tions mentioned. Peterson pointed out that, “It is the sincere wish of the committee to run this election as fairly as possible and we hope that cadets will vote for their honest choice of the ugliest man in the corps.” Although similar contests have been sponsored at many other American colleges and universities, this marks the first such official contest at A. & M. Although some students may be somewhat skepti cal about the dubious honor, it’s all meant in the spirit of “good fun” and it is the wish of the committee that the contest be run with this idea in mind. It is interesting to note that winners of contests held in other colleges and universities have often turned the results to personal prof it. Texas University’s champion a year ago received a movie con tract and the winners of similar contests have paved the way to “greener fields” with publicity that came with the colorful and exciting contest. Already Aggieland has evidenced considerable enthusiasm and near ly twenty candidates have appear ed on the horizon energetically backed by self-styled campaign managers.

Down the side of the mountain...a perfect telemark turn... and there he goes...faster and faster. That’s Bob Bour don, former Vermont champion. On skis, he’s one of New England’s fastest. But in smoking, he’s strictly on the slow side. Read what he says (at right). In recent laboratory tests, CAMELS burned 25% slower than the average of the 15 other of the largest-selling brands tested—slower than any of them. That means, on the average, a smoking plus equal to 5 EXTRA SMOKES PER PACK! Copyright. 1940. R. J. Reynolds Tobarro Company. Winston-Salem. N. C. In the Cannon Mountain Aerial Tramway, Franconia Notch, N. H., Bob Bourdon (above) enjoys a slow-burning Camel. "No speed for me in my smoking,” says this ski champion. "Camels are slower-burning and give me extra mildness, extra coolness, and extra flavor.” ' / T V HE fastef the going, the more fun in skiing,” X says Bob Bourdon. But he has a different angle on cigarettes. When Bob Bourdon says: "Slow burn ing is my guide to more mildness, more coolness, and more flavor,” he’s putting the stamp of actual smoking experience on the findings of science. Fast burning in a cigarette means heat. Nothing dulls the delicate elements of cigarette flavor and aroma so surely as excess heat. There’s little pleasure or comfort in a hot, flat smoke in which the flavor has been burned away. The extra mildness, refresh ing coolness, and that smooth, mellow flavor of Camels are confirmed by recent widely reported scientific tests, in which Camels...the cigarette of costlier tobaccos... burned the slowest of the sixteen of the largest-selling brands tested! (See panel at left.) So, change to slow-burning Camels and enjoy extra pleasure and extra smoking. •'j .MORE PLEASURE PER PUFF... MORE PUFFS PER PACK! Camels — a ^ are ^ e Cpsf/ierTobaccos
