He was pulled from the pool still

Hearing Held On Charges
For Space in Aggieland
Conflicting opinions, held sway at yesterday’s meeting
of the Student Publications Board as a three-man delegation
from the Corps met with the Board members to protest the
new space rate charges for the Aggieland.
The furor revolved around a move by the Publications
Board during the summer which provided for space charges
for all campus organizations which have dues, charge admis
sions or have an appropriate other source of income. The
new ruling especially affects ROTC units, civilian dorms and
intercollegiate sports. The action was taken following the'
completion of a 100-school survey on the procedure followed
by other schools in charging for space in yearbooks.
Survey returns from 26
schools comparable in size to
A&M showed that 13 charge
civilian dorms, 13 charge
Corps units, and seven charge
At yesterday’s discussion between
the Board and the Corps delegation,
headed by Corps Commander Lar
ry Kennedy, William Holloway and
Harold Sellers, the issue revolved
around the justification of such a
charge for Corps units. Kennedy
presented two notes, one signed by
Col. Joe E. Davis, commandant,
and the other signed by himself
and several of his top staff men,
expressing the feeling that the
charge was unjustified and ex
pressing their disapproval of the
At the opening of the meeting
Ross Strader, director of Student
Publications, presented, in mimeo

land and about the new charging
Because in the past only 99 clubs
and organizations were paying for
space, the Board, to make the
charges more consistent, installed
the new rule by a unanimous deci
sion. At the same time the old
rates were reduced from $55 to $50
per page and from $35 to $30 per
half page. To avoid putting an
unfair share of the • cost on the
Athletic Department, Strader said,
a multiple page rate was provided.

two pages, $45 each for the next
four pages, and $30 each for each
additional page.

On Who Plays
The 12th Man Bowl Com

Not quite a year ago, Vic Eh-

for a unique experiment. His title
was to be Brazos County Youth

The experiment was to prove if a

past six month’s work. On Feb.

In.the last six months, 47 chil
