The purpose of the drive have been clearly stated by, the Chest committee and their purposes seem perfectly; compatible with what most Ag gies Would agree with. If the $4,0d0 quota is reached, the' student body of A&M will be in a* position to offer a $2,000 Twelfth Man Scholar ship next fall; to some promising high school graduate. That sum would enable him to attend A&M for four years receive ingl $500 a semester. _ v [This idea of a student body sponsored scholarship appeals to most of us. We will have the opportunity to participate in offering a scholarship. The fairest and most objective method of selecting this man for the Twelfth Man bholarship would be for him to be chos- by the college scholarship committee, ie organization responsible for choosing Development Fund scholarships. This is the plan the Chest committee has sug- N gested. I' : 'J - j'.
