Thursday, June 28, 1956
Squeeze, Old Army!
There is no doubt where this scribe thinks the Cattle
Disease Laboratory should be located. This opinion, we ad
mit, is a bit biased. As the case develops more than just
we people here at A&M have this opinion.
As the qualifications^ are read we see A&M described to
a letter. The officials of the System have done their best to
present a case before the side committee that describes our
school as the only choice to be made. These men that got out
the brochure Chancellor Harrington presented in St. Louis
are to be commended for a job well done. To the organiza
tions that have come to the fore and are backing us in this
quest, together with the individuals over Texas and the Uni
ted States we say “Thank you” for your help.
The case has gone to the jury now and all we can do is
hope that the committee will make its choice on merit, not
politics. —dtm

Your car cost a lot of money.
So, when you stop for gasoline . . .
when you have it washed and lubricated
. . . when you have the oil changed . . .
you want to do business with folks you
can depend
There’s one way to be sure: shift the
care of your car to the shoulders of the
Humble dealer in your neighborhood.
You’ll discover that his station is
staffed with men who know their busi
ness; that he himself is a man you can
rely on to keep your car running right
and looking good.
Stop for service under the Humble
sign. You’ll meet your friends and neigh
bors there.
