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

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. B. McLeroy will work as our photographer for the
first six week term, Joe Dan Boyd will serve as reporter un
til time for summer camp and Maurice Olian will be in charge
of our Little League sports news.
