Student Publications Include
Newspaper, Four Magazines
As a first semester freshman
your daily life will be one of many
different activities, but for those
who enjoy working: on newspapers,
magazines or your school annual
you will be interested to know that
A&M has five student publications.
Included among the student-
written “epistles” the THE BAT
TALION the daily paper serving
both the campus and the city of
College Station. THE AGGIELAND
is our annual and four magazines
are published w'hich include THE
AGIvICULTUHIST, THE COM
MENTATOR, THE ENGINEER
and THE SOUTHWESTERN VET
THE BATTALION is published
four times a week during the fall
and spring semesters and once a
week during summer classes. It
has a circulation of 7,500 during
long semesters and its staff is
made up entirely of students who
woi’k on the paper of their own free
wdll. You do not have to be a
journalism major to work on THE
BATT-as it is known as on the
campus-or any of the other publi
cations. All you have to do is
make it known to the student
editors you want to work and drop
by the office.
THE BATTALION is a member
of the Associated Press and Texas
Press Association. In addition to
the regular papers each week sever
al special editions are published
during the year, this edition is one
of those. During the fall a Safety

has never failed to win less than
third place in a national contest.
In addition to national new r s,
campus, local and state coverage is
given and Li’l Abner and Pogo are
regular cartoon strips. Student car
toonists draw for the paper also.

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

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.

self is more than a full-time job for
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.
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

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
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.

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
All students are able to have 23
pieces of clothing cleaned each
week for 75 cents.
