The Battalion ..... College Station (Brazos County), Texas ! PAGE 2 Thursday, June 7, 1956 Slow Down and Live The Civic Organizations of our community and the Safety Committee of the Student Senate are backing the “Slow Down and Live” campaign being observed nationally. The Battalion asks that you look .at the picture on the front page of this issue and ask yourself. “Is 15 minutes saved in 200 miles worth the risk?” We are of the opinion that if the people of our country would be the ladies and gentlemen they are while mixing at social events, and carry this with them into their automobiles the highways of our country would be made more safe to enjoy. Welcome to Aggieland This is the first issue of the summer Battalion and in true tradition of Aggieland we want to extend ohr right hand and say, “Howdy!” to all the new faces we find gracing our campus this summer. We hope you find A&M as great a place as we know it to be, and think you will, before you leave us in the fall. As for some of those ‘new faces’, they sure make an improvement over some of the bearded ones you see during the regular semesters. To you, the girls at tending summer school, we extend a most cordial welcome and wish you could stay longer than just three short months. New Summer Staff The Battalion is fortunate to boast one of the largest summer staffs in quite some time this year. Barbara Paige, our Woman’s Editor and myself will work full-time on the paper. J.
