BACK TO SCHOOL EDITION The Battalion Section II Number 15: Volume 55 COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS, THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 1955 Price Five Cents Cadet Officers, Coins Announced MAN’S BEST FRIEND—No. It’s Reveille II, the Aggie mascot, and the canine who once brought forth a startling quotation from a Battalion photographer. The quote: “Look out for the d . . n dog; it bites.” Anyway, it’s been vacationing in Borger during the summer and has now returned. Reveille's Back at A&M It’s official now. School def initely will be starting. It has to, for Reveille has returned. She smelled something awful when she first made her appear ance back at A&M last week — but she looked fatter. Seems as though the summer vacation she spent with Clarence Kerns, senior from Borger, was good for her. She smells better now; she had a bath. Kerns’ kindness in keeping the Aggie Mascot solved a problem which has bothered last year’s Student Senate. Rev’s regular roommate, Sam Netterville fi’om Beaumont, had to attend summer ROTC camp, so Rev had no home. The whole school owes Kerns a favor. He took Rev away for the summer.
