“Two Convenient Stores”
Geologists Discover
Ancient Sea Reptiles
A glimpse into that dim past
of 100,000,000 years ago when
oceans engulfed what now are the
Rocky mountains was afforded as
geologists unearthed remains of a
giant sea serpent near here.
The ancient serpents measured
from 40 to 50 feet, and had broad
turtle-like bodies, long necks and
elongated flippers.
The fin of one of the sepents
—known as the plesiosaurs—al
ready has been uncovered, and
the neck is in process of being re
moved. The diggings are expect
ed to reveal the head of the
plesiosaur, as well as other bone

and it was the National Champ
ionship team of 1939 that did the
trick then. The full time record of
the two teams favors Arkansas,
the present score is Arkansas 7,
A. & M. 6, and 1 tie game.
From all indications the Aggies
will have a job on their hands with
the Razorbacks if they want to con
tinue undefeated. For the first time
this year the Arkansas team will be
at full strength and will have all
their boys waiting to go, while the
Aggies are probably at their weak
est. Four Farmers are on the in
jured list. Tom Pickett is suffer-
fering from a hurt knee while
Alabama Smith, Les Richardson,
and Lincoln Roman are down with
bruised knees. Pickett will prob
ably not see any service in the
game, and Bama Smith was left
behind. Roman will be replaced by
Skarke, who returns to action af
ter being out with a bad knee. Mar
tin Ruby, the Aggie candidate for
All-Conference tackle, is still both
ered with a broken hand, but the
protection of the plaster cast will
allow him to see service.

‘Make Haste Slowly’-Health Officer
Warns-Defense Work Causes Strains
“For the last twenty years or
more speed has been one of the
dominant factors in American life.
Today, because of the tremendous
defense needs, assembly-line tech
nique, whenever possible, has been
injected into all activities connect
ed with the emergency. Thus, more
than ever, speed is being empha
sized in the nation’s life. Plain
ly, the need of conserving health
and strength in the face of pres
ent demands is greater than ever
before. It follows that ‘to make
haste slowly’ in the art of living,
at this time not only is basic good
sense but patriotic also. It does not
help vitality or health to ap'ply
a sixty-mile-an-hour pace to unes
sentials. Nevertheless, evidences of
this type of existence are quite ap
parent. One of the numerous proofs
of this fact is the habit many per
sons have of more or less bolting
their food,” states Doctor Geo. W.
Cox, State Health Officer.
“This ‘hasty-lunch’ psychology
is rather general. The speedily
swallowed breakfast is followed by
the equally speedy lunch. For
many, this momentum carries
through the evening meal so that
it also is disposed of in record
time. It is little wonder, then,
that solid food often is insufficient
ly masticated, that self-prescribed
pills for a variety of gastronom-
ical discomforts are popular, and
that in extreme cases definite ill
ness develops.
“Of course time and custom have
changed many things, including
eating habits. But the point is
that nature does not change; while
marvelously elastic, she still has
her limits as well as punishments
for those who persistently disobey.
Consequently, the wise person if
now a speed eater, will realize that
to take a few minutes more time
per meal and to chew food thor
oughly that needs chewing are just
as essential as are the quality and
type of food consumed.
“In short, everyone should re
alize that whether with respect to
the young or the adult, speedy eat
ing with its inevitable accompan
iment of insufficient mastication
is a practice which can give rise
to conditions that in varying de
grees deprive one of maximum
health, and sometimes is directly
responsible for even greater penal
ties. The practice, therefore, should
be discontinued,” concludes Doctor
