For the thirteen hundred and fourteen freshmen at the Annex d ' r i' f \ * . r .1 t as well as the wives and families of the veterans, there are only two pay stations available for use during the hours that the Student Center i i open. Of these two pay {stations, the door of one is completely tom Ibose and the latch on the pther is broken so that little or no privacy is possible from the noisy lounge. More times than once students have received urgent calls from home or other places, only to find a long dine waiting to use the telephones. Saturday and Sunday afternoon also finds long Students waiting to call prom or their girls back home. Something be done about this intolerable situation ? The company has the franchise for this area can certainly afford to go expense for something that would in due time make them much more rtioney. Not only do the students have inadequate telephone service, but i Iso the members of the faculty and the administration of the annex. In checking with Dean of Students, W. G. Breazeale, it has been found that only five outside lines! are available for these people. After five O’clock, the lines are connected directly from the main switch board i peo! pnes with telephone servic4.

Some now information recently sltyws us that we also must not tell a pig by i,,™- ^ universal the dirty stories we hear sjbout him Dr. Henry Stewart, bead of animal breeding and swine research ^t North Carolina State College in Raleigh, says, “pigs have become associated with filth only because we don’t give them a chance to get siway from It.” “With the temperature ho\*ering around 95 degrees on hot summer days, pigs just naturally sdoot for the nearest waterhole. Since these ften times aren’t provided, the normally clean-conscious pigs swallow eir vanity and collapse into the closest mud wallow." And surprmingty enough the porker is the smartest animal on the nn. Our plump, four-footed friends have outsmarted even chiuv- lanzees, brightest members of the ape family in intelligence teats. Pigs, contrary to layman's belief, don’t have gluttonous appetitee. Tfoo many farmers fail to feed their pigs enough, not realizing that these animals require plenty of food because they grow proportionately faster than any other compion animal. A kind of-physiologic* 1 fear is created in the animals by this actipn, giving them the impjression' that there isn’t going to be enough food to go around. When sblf-feeders are provided and leas competition is present, swine never shofw any indication of ravenous appetite. We are glad to know that the poor mistreated poricer has been beared of his malevolent reputation. Prejudice against the pig should now be a thing of the past.

We hit every patch of grass-burrs within a two-mile radius. The first “objet 4’ urt” we stumbled upon -— I repeat, stumbled upon—was some com mon old grass that is found growing wherever it Isn’t sup posed to. Such specimens as these were found everywhere. At any rate, there were too many to remember. In fact, I don’t remember any.

Upon his arrival hfre he found that his thirty-two years banned him from the corps, arid he has ap plied through official channels of the school and the Fourth Army for special permission to become a cadet Tall, blonde J. C. Diebel has en tered AAM for slightly different reasons. He feels that hero “you don’t have to be the president's nephew to get along. Everyone get* a clean break.” At the time of J, C.'n graduation from high school the compulsory training law was under uncertain contemplation. For that reason he left his home In Elgin, Texas, and signed up with the intelligence Di vision of the Air Force ’’to get It over with.” Released from service on May 91, he entered the summer session of AAM five days later to start his < ©liege life as an accounting ma- ,or.
