The Battalion ..... College Station (Brazos County), Texas PAGE 2 Thursday, May 17, 19a6 What’s The Next Step?* The Air Science Department has announced that theii investigation on quiz stealing - has ended. With the results in the hands of Col. Joe E. Davis, com mandant, disciplinary action, if any is necessary, will prob ably follow in the next several days. , ,, AJong with the conclusion of this investigation and tlie action taken on the results, we hope will be the end to man> of the rumors that have been sweeping the campus. truth often hurts but not nearly so much as do rumors. One of the more prevalent rumors on the campus is that the Air Science investigation team was investigating ath letes. This definitely is not true. Thefts concernng the Athletic Department and the action already taken in connec tion with them was discovered by The Battalion, assisted by members of the student body. Because such incidents were along the same lines as the quiz stealing and no previous information had been giv en, they were printed. Since through these investigations we have taken steps toward ridding the campus of dishonesty, we now can turn to steps of a preventative nature. Naturally, this is the hardest part. What then is the solution that will make each of us live by the highest stan dards of honor? Is it guards in every building, a secret police system, or will it come from us in the form of self discipline, in that we refuse to lower ourselves, our friends and our school by dis honorable actions? Surprisingly enou'gh, there is a certain pride in saying, “I may have failed that exam, but I was honest,” as in con trast of having passed but not on our own. Large Summer Enrollment Expected Enrollment for the summer ses sion of 1956 is expected to reach 2,000, according to Registrar H. L. Heaton. Registration will begin at 8 a.m. Monday, June 4, and continue until 12 noon, with classes beginning Tuesday at 7 a.m. Fees, including dormitory room reservations, may be paid begin ning at 8 a.m. Monday, May 21, in the fiscal office.

They’re called the sweetest playing clubs in the book, and for good reason. Spalding’s exclusive SYNCHRO-DYNED® club process, a scientifically exact system of weight coordi nation, gives each club, in the set the identical swing and “contact feel” to help groove your swing. And this new Bobby Jones set is as handsome as they come. The irons feature an exclusive tough alloy steel with a glistening high-polish finish that lasts season after season. If you’re interested in whittling strokes off your game (and who isn’t?) see and swing the 1956 Bobby Jones SYNCHRO- DYNED clubs at your Spalding dealer’s. Play Spalding Clubs and Balls—golf’s most winning combination.

Junction Adjunct To Begin June 1 By JOHN WARNER Battalion Staff Writer The sixth session of the A&M College Adjunct at Junction, Tex., will get under way June 4 with a testing period for the students. “The camp has an ideal atmos phere for studying and getting ready for college,” said S. A. Kei - - ley, director of the adjunct. “En rollment for freshmen has more than doubled since the program was started.” At a cost of $140 per six weeks the A&M Basic Division offers sev en hours of college credit in a summer camp atmosphere to stu dents entering college, for the first time.

Students who are planning to enter one of these fields will have an opportunity to observe some of this work. Professor Joe Orr of A&M will be in charge of the civil engineers and Jack Boone of Arlington State College will handle the geologists. The adjunct is operated under the supervision of Dr. C. H.
