What Causes Holdup On Books Three Offices Open In April Elections ... By Joel Austin DOOK shortages cause a great deal of con- ■^sternation every semester, but this ap parently is due largely to the human equa tion. Every effort is made by the Exchange Store to integrate the large number of var iables that effect the demand potential and arrive at the purchase estimate that will satisfy all students within the limits of rea son and predictability. Some of these variables are: • The departmental estimate as to the probable number of students expected in each course.

In the Senate, 41 members signed up as sponsors of a measure introduced by Sen. Paul Douglas (D., Ill.), and in the House 57 representatives joined in offering a bill for the proposed expansion. The bills provide that the 400,000 mini mum strength go into four full-sized combat divisions, four air wings and related service units.

Business-Reservist Dealt Wicked Blow Interesting News Coming People of College Station may be in store for some in teresting news in the very near future. Whether the city council meeting Monday night will produce any further word on the development of the College Hills electricity problem, we don’t know. The 30 day waiting period necessary after a bond elec tion is passed has just about expired and the first bonds for purchase of the Bryan-REA electric service in College Hills can be issued as soon as details are arranged with the Bryan City Commission. Councilmen should be ready to take action on the ques tion Monday night. We have no official word on that matter, however.

The Eisenhower statement mere- Educated Have Most Headaches New York, Feb. 7—(A*)—Married people have fewer headaches— the hurting kind in the head—than the single ones. This is one finding in a survey, reported today, of who gets head aches and why. Educated people get more head aches than the less educated, it shows. Women have more head aches than men. ..Young people get them oftener than older persons. Housewives suffer more than sales men. Farmers get the fewest. Medical students are about the worst off, and lawyers rate high, too. The headache survey, one of the first thorough studies of its kind, was made by Dr. Henry D. Ogden, clinical assistant professor of med icine at Louisiana State University School of Medicine. His survey covered (>,000 persons, by questionnaires and interviews. They included hospital employees, salesmen, manual laborers, house wives, executives, physicians and other professional workers, medical students, Catholic priests and sis ters. Dr. Ogden said 61.8 per cent said (hey suffered from head aches, from severe to minor ones. The pain occurred most often (72.6 per cent of the time) in the forehead. Few had headaches more than once a week. Hut one per cent had them every day. The migraine type, perhaps the severist kind of headache, was not very common (13.2 per cent). One significant thing was that people with headaches had more respiratory troubles, including colds and sore throats and aller gies such as hay fever and asthma,» Since General Eisenhower spoke last week, argument over Ger- . . a 0 ^ lt ^ man rearmament has been so quiet U recognized a fact of. life.

Present ceiling strength of the corps is 203,000, and Marines in recent years have been haunted by fears that some day they might be absorbed by other armed services. We’re strongly in favor of taking the Wraps off the Marine Corps. The Leather necks have always been a little something special in the way of an elite fighting force. When it comes to instilling an extraordinary , spirit, vigor and morale in their men, the Marines, somehow, seem to outdo the Army and Navy. Scripps-Howard Staff Writer Jim Lucas, just back from Korea, has some in teresting observations on this. At first glance then, you might ask why limit the Marines even to 400,000 ? The corps itself answers that. It is supporting the ex pansion bill, but it would settle for 300,000 men. With typical pride, the Marines feel that anything over four divisions would de stroy their effectiveness as a striking force and make them merely another army. If that’s what the Marines want, let’s give it to them—and quickly. And, judging from reports on Korea, we could venture the suggestion that the Army might well take a leaf or two from Marine manuals on morale-building, field training and gen eral pepping-up of recruits—The Houston Press. classic example. m a barn.

Suppliers of raw material in this particular case had ample time to clear their warehouses of stock at existing prices—thus passing on or avoiding any loss through a “rollback.” For a number of years the reservist in question could borrow money for stock on a “pay in 90 days” basis.
