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
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.

The secret-they’re SYNCHRO-DYNED!
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.
