Thursday, September 15, 1955 THE BATTALION Page 3 ATTENTION—Ballard receives his first taste of military life on his first day in College Station. He is a member of D Infantry, commanded by Ken Kuykendall. Freshmen have been working hard trying to learn the Aggie way of life before upperclassmen invade the campus Saturday. Besides attending lectures, taking tests and learning Aggie customs and traditions, the new students have been drilling before each meal formation. Constructions tarts On Sewage System The Texala construction Co. of Houston began excavations for the new $350,000 City of College Sta tion Sewer system, Monday, and R. B. Butler Inc. of Bryan began construction of the accompanying sewage disposal plant Wednesday. When completed, the new system will alow the city residents to by pass septic tanks and to connect house sewers directly to the mains. Before now sewage has been dump ed into several local creeks, some of them within the city limits. Both of the contracts call for completion of the project in 200 calendar days from Monday, Sept. 12. Two main lines will be construct ed with branches connecting to the present system. Line “A” will ex tend northwest from the plant, which is located three and one- half miles east of the city ceme tery, making a right angle turn to intersect Highway 6, and from there extending to its end behind Consolidated High School. Line “B” will cross Highway 6 at the city cemetery and extend to College Park and West College Park. Ran Boswell, city manager of College Station, stressed that the north part of the town will not be affected by the measure, as the city has a contract with the city of Bryan for sewage disposal in that section of the city. A&M College is also unaffected by the measure, as the college has had its own sewage disposal system for many years. Civil Defensers Will Convene WHAT IS IT?—That’s what the photographer thought when he crawled down into a 15-foot deep sewer line trench to take this picture. This is part of the city’s new sewer line, which will be finished in about 200 days. One word of advice, don’t ever try to get a picture of a sewer line when there’s a trench digging machine around. Costs $30,000 Changes in Buildings, Landscape Returning students to A&M Col lege will find quite a few changes in the old appearance of some of the landscaping and buildings. About $30,000 has been spent during the summer months as part of the sidewalking and landscaping plans which began two years ago in the Academic Building area. The aim of this plan is to carry out a long range campus beautifi cation program, to include side walks, parking areas, landscaping, trees and shrubs for the entire campus. The sidewalks and entrance areas of Guion Hall have been re surfaced and a 10-foot walk has been placed on the east side of the drill field. Sidewalks have been laid on the east side of the M'SC, where walking traffic prevents a planting program. Four parking lots are being pre pared south of White Coliseum and larger parking areas will be open ed to football crowds. Sbisa Hall will be ready for use soon, following its face lifting plan started two years ago. Last year, a new red tile floor was added and di’aperies were hung. This year, principal changes include installation of a new lower acoustical ceiling with recessed lights; aluminum doors; new vent ilation system which produces a complete change of air in the main dining room every two minutes; and a new multiple speaker public address system with microphone connections spaced around the hall for use of banquet speakers and dance bands. Here Tuesday A Civil Defense Conference | and Workshop will be held Sept. 21-23 in the Memorial Student Center, to give train ing and information to help women make their own homes saf er in emergencies. The State Civil Defense Advisory Council is sponsoring the three- day event, which will have repre sentatives from 40 women’s or ganizations. These clubs have a membership of about 1,250,000 women, according to Mrs. Grace Martin, State Coordinator of Wom en’s Activites in Civil Defense and Disaster Relief.

Bryan Students holding Advanced ROTC con tracts who desire to satisfy only the mini mum requirement for graduation in their respective curricula are reminded that the deans of the degree-granting schools have authority to substitute an equivalent air or military science course for a course pre scribed for a degree in the several curricula of their schools except as a course is pre scribed by legislative action. Such stu dents are advised to consult the dean of their school since no substitution can be made official without notice to the Reg istrar’s Office by the dean.. J. P. Abbott Dean of the College 15t5 AMERICAN HISTORY REQUIREMENT The attention of the faculty and stu dents Is called to Senate Bill 254, 54th Legislature, which reads as follows: Section 1. No person after July 1, 1956, shall be granted a baccalaur eate degree of any kind from any in stitution of higher learning supported or maintained by the State of Texas, or from any Junior college receiving state aid. except that he or she has taken and passed six semester hours In American History provided that any student shall have the option, at his or her request, to substitute three sem ester hours of Texas History for three of the six semester hours in American History required by the terms of this Act. Section 2. The provisions of this Act are in addition to existing laws re quiring the teaching of state and fed eral Constitutions in state supported colleges and universities In Texas. Section 3. The fact that recent sur veys have disclosed a disturbing lack of knowledge and appreciation of the facts and significance of American history, with its bearings on the pres ent and Implications for the future, creates an emergency and an impera tive public necessity that the Constitu tional Rule requiring bills to be read on three several days In each House be suspnded; and such Rule is hereby sus pended, and this Act shall be in force and effect from and after its passage, and it is so enacted. By action of the Executive Committee of the Academic Council, all curricula which do not include this requirement, or only partially include it, are herewith amended to include it for all students who are to receive their degrees after July 1, 1956. In these curricula the additional hours need ed to satisfy the requirement will replace an equivalent number of elective hours. The total number of semester hours re quired for the degree remains unchanged. Two sequences of courses offered by this Institution meet the requirement of the law —(1) History 105 and 106 (History of the United States), and (2) History 325 (Trends in American History) and History 326 (History of Texas), this last to be offered beginning with the spring semester of 1956. Students who have completed three or more semesters of college work before registering for courses in American History are advised to schedule History 325 and 326. J. P. Abbott Dean of the College 16t5 have eig-ht-chair tables with coral red formica tops and non-tilting laminated natural wood chairs. The window archwork has been rebuilt and the window length fiber drap ing added. Oak plywood wainscot ing applied with an electronic woodwelder has been installed and new men’s and women’s lounges have been built. The painting of dormitories has continued during the summer months with the painting of Dor mitories 14-17. The college plans to carry out the painting of these dorms each summer as long as stu dents take care of them during win ter months. Numerous trees and shrubs have been planted over the campus and grass has been seeded on the main drill field in front of the MSG. It is hoped the Senior Class will make sure everyone stays off the grass to give it time to catch hold and become another of A&M’s success ful improvements. liam L. McGill, State coordinator, and Miss Mattie Treadwell, region al deputy administrator are two of the speakers slated for the con vention.
