A&M is known throughout the Southwest Conference as the “poor boys school.” This is a title that a college should be proud of instead of trying to hide. It is true that it costs less to get an education hei^e than most of our “sister” schools in Texas, and many of the students find it necessary to work at one time or another to pay either for their schooling or to cover the expenses of a Corps Trip or a date for one of the big weekends. To make it easier for students to get jobs when they need them the college operates the Office of Student Employment and Loans, which is a part of the Placement Office and is under the direction of Co. Edward F. Sauer. If you are interested in working while at A&M write the Office now for information. The address is- Office of Student Employment- Texas A&M College-College Sta tion, Texas. Get your application in fast for the jobs go quickly when the fall semester begins. College counselors will warn you of one important fact - Don’t try to work too much during your first semester at college! The adjust ment to the college routine is hard enough without trying to work eight hours a day on top of it. College officials also suggest you do not plan oij earning more than half your money while in school. Getting a college education in it self is more than a full-time job for most persons. To hold a student job, you must be in good scholastic standing and due to shortage of jobs ordinarily only those students who actually need help in getting thx-ough school are considered for positions. Student Loans The other half of the Student Labor and Loans office is devoted to handling student loans. The office does not try to help you borrow enough money to pay your way through school, but rathed this loan service is designed to help students through those “tight days” when you find your self in need of a few dollars in case of emergency. These are strictly “honor” loans and no col lateral is required-you simply walk in and tell Col Sauer how much you need, and if you wish-what for and if the money is available you will get it. The maximum amount that can be loaned is $20 for a maximum time of 30 days. Payment must be made in cash and while no interest rate is charged a small contribution is expected to offset losses and operating expenses of the office. The Loan Office has an opex - at- ing capital of $9,500. Dux-ing 1955- 56 5,800 loans were made to stu dents averaging $10 to $20. Thus, some $90,000 passed thx-ough the accounts. These loans ax-e made available by contributions fi'om former stu dents, A&M Mothei’s’ Clubs and memorial funds. The Placement Office is operated in the same building with the Loan and Labor Office. This office ope rates primarily to help graduating senioi's in finding- jobs. Last year 1,304 employei's con tacted graduating sexxiors thx-ough this office with job calls. Over 350 individxial and ground inteiwiews wex*e set up to handle this load. Clothing, Laundry No Problem at A&M Entei'ing fx-eshmen will be intei’-1 ested to know that the clothing and laundry problem at A&M is a x-elatively simple one. The student who is going to be in the Corps of Cadets will have most of his clothing issued to him. Howevex 1 , it is usually necessax-y that he buys another pair of shoes, some socks, and a pair of serge trousers. The non-x-eg or civilian stxi- dent should bring along the same type of clothing that he wears at home. He should have some sport shix-ts and pants, a suit for church and special occasions, and a pair of bluejeans that he can loaf around in. One the whole, the winter at a&M is mild, yet, thex-e are a fe-h bitteily cold days. The civilian studexxt should bring along at least a few articles of winter wear. Dux-ing fish week, the entex-ing freshman must go to the college laundx-y, where he wdll be assign ed a laundry mark and told when and where to deposit his soiled clothing. All students are able to have 23 pieces of clothing cleaned each week for 75 cents. SAM HOUSTON ZEPHYR Lv. N. Zulch 10:08 a.m. Ar. Dallas . . 12:47 p.m. Lv. N. Zulch Ar.
