Roger Fleming, director of
the Washington), D. C. office
of the American Farm Bur
eau Federation*! was the fea
tured speaker in yesterday’s
session of the Texas Farm
Bureau Institute.
“I .do not labor under the de-
lusion; that farm legislation was
made in Washington,” Fleming
stated.: “It is because of the efforts
of Federation members in the
states and counties that progressive
legislation is passed.” T -
Speaking further, Fleming com
mended the Texas Farm Bureau
Federation for its almost single-
handed fight for gi-ain storage and.
for its work in securing a support;
price for cottonseed.
Pointing out the .inter-relation
ship of the county, state and nat
ional organizations, Fleming said,
“The Farm Bureau is an organi
zation to solve problems.”
In the afternoon session Leon
Lane and Dee K|no;L both field
representatives of the TFBF, spoke
on county meetings and programs.

Tkls is an urgent plea for the
Pied Piper of Hamlin to step back
into reality and whistle Up the ex
pletive provoking hoards of tiny
black ants that are running ram
pant on the A&M cimpus.
Perhaps the Old;Master could
woo them into hurling their little
carcasses into the Brazos to the
tpne of “Shortenin’ Bread,” or -*Tn
e Sweet Bye and Bye,” but it
akes no difference how they go
. just so they go.
During the first part of the sum
mer I looked upoh the malicious
little brutes as merely an incon-
vience to be endured like A&M
food, A&M weather, and pop-quiz-
es, but now the beggers have in
truded upon every private sanc
tion I hold dear, and the battle
has become all-out ... the sur

When I’m gone, they scamper
up my typewriter land click out

garettes and old socks that they
have lifted onto their wiry backs
and carried from my room.
Three times last week I sloped
a mob of the blackguards from
hurling my favorite phonograph
record from the top of my; desk.
Their courage, however, must be
admitted. Nothing is too big or
smoll for them to tackle. They
aren’t sneaky like their afeh-

One inetlhod I used to combat
them is surefire. This method not
only renders the ant helpless, but
also satisfies your own desire to
outwit the beast. j
When a.sufficient number have
gathered in my room to warrant

sadistically to myself as 20 or 30

Afflicted Cadets at Camp Hood
Flock to Join the Ivy League
Camp Hood Batt Correspondent
The Ivy League has signed up a
lot of Aggies. More than
a dozen men from A&M taking
summer camp training at Camp
Horn ittt-
ood became full fledged members
of that well known group.
They did it by contracting poison
Names like Harry Johnson, John
Zerr,! Ken Voss, Johnny Gimarc,
Louie Lawson and Don Garreti-
were inscribed on the ever-growing
membership list of the Hood Ivy

nounced today, .
leges hand-
of d<
ast school
And the Aggies were not alone.
Dozens of cadets from the two
cavalry companies swarmed the
ROTC dispensary this evening
for treatment.
The outbreak of poison ivy has
been blamed on a recent patrol
problem in which F Company and
G Company fought a mock skirm
ish. The conflict took place out
the hinterlands of this huge camp
land it just so happens I that the
hinterlands were full o(| the shiny
poison ivy bush. ;J
And so, after a weekend in which
to develop, the rash of poison ivy
has struck down the good men
of the two cavalry companies.
Many, of the afflicted cadets
have been combatting the disease
off and on since the beginning of
camp. But the majority of the
men who swarmed the ROTC dis
pensary this evening were there
for the first time.
I M'
The outbreak was so bad today
that a special “shock” treat
ment for the rash was devised
by the station hospital. The
treatment consists of two parts,
the second of which is as yet
undivulged. The first, however,
was unveiled when the cadets
descended on the dispensary.
Upon arrival everyone exposed
his area of rash and was given a
handfull of soapy material. This
was, according to orders, smeared
on the rash and allowed to dry.
Tomorrow we will get the second
treatment. But now the men with
poison ivy have the appearance
of being in the first stage of dis
integration. Such is the result of
the mass indoctrination into the
Camp Hood Ivy
