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
le Aggieland orchestra.
Decorations will be in the mood of St.

For those students who live in

a ballot box will be placed in the
rotunda of the Academic Building
early Friday morning and will re

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

ceremony. At this time he will
also be presented with the honor

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

It takes your breath away even to watch him. 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).

5 EXTRA SMOKES
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.
