Further discussion brought out several other pertinent factors causing disagreement. The sailors said that something should be done to make the naval detachment feel a part of A. & M. In order to do this the Aggies proposed that the sailors attend yell practices and elect a yell leader to lead the sail ors in the Aggie yells at the foot ball games. It was finally decid ed that there should be a yell lead er from the navy and one from the marines. Aggies have complained about the sailor practice of upstreaming. The sailors countered with the statement that they were not given liberty until one o’clock Saturday and thus would always be at the end of a hitch-hiking line. It was proposed that two lines be formed at every corner, one for Aggies and one for sailors, each line tak ing the rides alternately. Both sides thought that this arrangement would be the fairest possible un der the circumstances. It was a general feeling among those present at the meeting that something needed to be done to acquaint the Aggies and sailors. The men ' representing the corps offered to give a dance honoring the sailors as soon as possible. In return the sailors said that they would trye to give a dance honor ing the Aggies. The general conclusion drawn from the meeting was that the two groups should participate in more social activities together. The navy wholeheartedly approved of this and said that they would go as far as naval regulations would permit. Members of the senior class rep resenting the Aggies were: Andy Jones, head yell leader; H. Q. Sibley, senior yell elader; Jack Palmer, executive officer on 2nd regimental staff; Paul Olschner, commander of the 2nd regiment, and Calvin Brumley, corps execu tive officer. Naval personnel composing the sailor committee were E. M. Perry, J. M. Gouger, A. H. Way, J. C. Mount, C. O. Garner, and W. T. Judd, the six company commanders. Another meeting between the two groups was arranged for next Tues day night in the Ward Room of Dormtiory 12. A destroyer to be called U. S. S.
