Another week has gone by and mid-semester grade
reports look closer every minute. Talking to some Ags has
made me suspect they won’t be too happy to see the report.
Oh well! That’s typical of Aggieiahd this time of the
year. One thing nice about it. No spring fever—just foot

Two weeks ago I was commenting in this column on
the new course on American political parties being' tutored
by P. J. Woods. I said “currently, P. J. Woods is teaching
the course”. He remarked the other day:
“What do you mean ‘currently’? As. far as I know
1 will continue to teach the course for some time.”

Saturday’s game with Missouri sounded more like the
Southwest Conference champions of 1956. It was most
reassuring to hear Crow back in the game again as well
as Krueger hitting his All-American stride.
Next week’s game with University of Houston should
show just how good the Aggies are.

Those who have never seen the Four Freshmen
have really missed a good show. Tonight is the finest
opportunity you’ll have to see them perform.
★ ★ ★
Freshmen who have not yet begun to participate in
some of the extra-curricular activities around the campus
are missing half their education. There’s more to be
learned than that which comes from books.

Uennie Zinn, head of Student Affairs, gave what
seemed to he one of the most inspiring talks made in
some time the other night at Civilian Student Council
meeting. Every word he said was true and it be
hooves every Civilian student to take a more active
interest in campus life than in the past.

What is this that we read about
“Aggies Say ‘Nix’ To Co-educa
tion” ? It seems to us that this
was mainly the Corps talking.
What is wrong with them ?
Don’t they know what coeds are?

Highlights and Sidelights
From Your State Capitol

AUSTIN, Tex. — Gov. Price
Daniel apparently is going all
out to get the balance of his
1957-58 program adopted into
Special legislative session be
gins Oct. 14.
In recent speeches over the
state Daniel has plugged for lob
by control and a crime commis
sion. More talks were scheduled
—-one on water conservation in
San Antonio and another in Lib
In addition, the governor has
made some outspoken statements
on federal-state relationships.
Excerpts from his busy round:
CRIME—Present criminal code,
says the governor, “is so anti
quated that it protects the con
victed criminal more than it pro
tects the public.”
He asked for a state law en
forcement study commission that
would make recommendations to
the next regular Legislature on
how crime and highway accidents
can be reduced.
Texas crime rate is rising fast
er than its population, 46 per
cent of it by juveniles, said Dan
iel. (A recent FBI survey showed
that during the first half of 1957
Texas has had an increase, up to
nearly 10 per cent over 1956, in
every type of major crime.)
of this bill are trying “to picture
it as a sti'Uggle between business
and labor,” said the governor.
“This is ridiculous . . . the bill
would require registration of
those employed by both labor and
industry to influence legislation.
“Vast majority of Austin lob
byists are legitimate operators
who identify themselves and hon
estly perform their work. They
have nothing to fear from this
Opponents of the bill, said Dan
iel, are “modern-day carpetbag
gers who hide their identity and

Jon Hagler, Corps Commander
He’d Lead Corps
By GAYLE McNUTT
Three years ago the last thing
to enter the mind of a short-
haired “B” Field Artillery fresh
man from LaGrange was becom
ing Commander of the Corps of
Cadets. But that is exactly the
goal attained by Jon L. Hagler.
Hagler, like most Aggies, does
not know exactly what prompted
him to come to A&M. He said
since A&M has the best School of
Agriculture in the state,, it just
seemed the logical place to go
since he intended to major in ag
ricultural economics. He said he
was also drawn by the leadership
advantages of A&M.
“But I never even dreamed of

ever becoming Corps command
er,” the slim four-diamond ranker
Hagler said that his biggest
thrill since coming to A&M was
when he was notified that he was
Corps sergeant major last year.
He jokingly lists his greatest
challenge here at Aggieland as
trying to convince his profs that
his outside activities in the Corps
are more important than 100%
He says that his greatest ex
periences at A&M are the every
day associations thdt he has with
the men in his class. Hagler
doesn’t have many dislikes or pet
peeves nor does he have any par
ticularly preferred entertainment.
When asked about his opinion
of how A&M had changed since
his entering in the fall of ’54 and
how he thought it might change
in the future, the brown-haired
