Battalion Editorials Page 2 TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1955 Never Too Early Next weekend is still a long way off, but the incidents of the one just past are still on our minds. And foremost among these incidents should be the ac cidents that almost took the lives of three of our fellow stu dents. It’s never too early to talk about safety on the highway, or on the campus or city streets. Nor can one say enough about the need to be on constant guard against the unex pected—that which happens to the “other fellow.” And, remember, you are the “other fellow” to the drivers of other automobiles on the road. We have rules to guard against deliberate chance-taking by drivers; we have perfunctionary inspections to check our automobiles—but we have no way of guarding against the momentary carelessness that can mean life or death on the highways and streets of our state. It is realized, of course, that “perfect” safety on our roads is an ideal, probably impossible, to strive for. But as someone aptly said: “Ideals remain real only when one con tinues to realize them.” CHS Buildings CADET SLOUCH Win Top Honor For Architects Today’s Borrowed Thoughts THE WORST SERVANT of a democracy is the man who obeys the people because he fears them. In his deference to the opinion of others he surrenders his own, and if his example were followed by everyone, the opinion of a democracy would degenerate into little more than timid conventionality. The true democrat does not obey the people; he regards himself as one of the people, with the democratic privilege of having a mind of his own. He never pretends that the majority is necessarily right; he knows that courageous minorities are the very soul of a democracy. This is why there has arisen the cuilous paradox that many of the best leaders of democracies have had to fight the majority all their lives. Had they not done so, they would have been little more than sheep, and a flock of sheep is not the symbol of a free people. It is the man who stands against the dead uniformity of opinion and breaks it up with some fresh current of ideas, who really creates a situation in which real opinion is possible. NEW REPUBLIC, June, 1915 The high school buildings at A & M Consolidated recently received more honors as the architects, Caudill, Rowlett, Scott & Associates of Bryan, were selected as one of two first honor winners in the non-residen- tial division of architectural com petition in Texas. Texas Architecture Awards for 1955 were presented to the archi tects at a meeting of the Dallas Chapter, American Institute of Architects. The plans were prais ed for their elimination of a set of walls and the provision foi raised play areas which took intc account both sun and shade. William Nash, Bryan architect received an honor award in the same division for his work on the Catholic Student Center at North Gate in College Station.

CAMPUS CLEANERS by James Earle | College Station YAC AL.YJNY'b OiD ‘oAY cooi-D wora.i^. rSErrrnEfa. okao&tA PQ-ESSwctef Cgoup?) May Get New Name At a recent meeting of the Col lege Station Youth Activities Com mittee, proposals were made to change the name and to reconsti tute the organization. A special committee, consisting of Mrs. R. E. Patterson, chairman; J. B. (Dick) Hervey and John Rogers, was named to study these propo sals and to make recommendations for effecting them. A vagueness in its present name, implying that the Committee is ac tually engaged in recreational ac tivities instead of its true purpose —to develop permanent-type facili ties in the community for youth groups, was pointed out at the meeting. It was pointed out that the com mittee’s present name does not ac curately describe the purpose of the organization. The sole pur pose is to develop permanent-type facilities in the community for youth groups, while the name im plies that the committee is actu ally engaged in recreational activ ities. The Youth Activities Committee was formed a number of years ago by local citizens who realized a distinct need for physical facilities to complement the activities and services of the Boy and Giri Scouts, College Station Recreation al Council, and other youth organ^ (Sec COMMITTEE, Page 4) DANCE SATURDAY, OCT.
