An Editorial
So { fety. Conduct
Late today and tomorrow, Ags will be leaving the
campus by the hundreds to take Highway 6 south for the
Corps trip to Houston and the Aggie game with the ambi
tious Owls of Rice Institute.
Two big problems will face the visitors on the trip—
traffic safety and general conduct.
The road to Houston will undoubtedly be packed with
cars and over such a long weekend, possibilities of traffic
accidents are great.
A fund for Aggies has been started in the College
Station State Bank in case any wrecks occur and Aggies
need medical aid. Some hospitals might not treat victims
unless they can show financial stability.
It might be wise for every Aggie going to Houston to
place a card on the dashboard or window saying that in
the College Station State Bank are sufficient funds to cover
medical expenses. The fund was started for such use.
It’s hoped that these funds won’t be needed and all
Aggies will drive carefully but if needed they are there.
The other big problem is conduct.
Naturally it’s hard to forget the fracas at TCU and
some may think it might be similar in Houston. It could be
but once again the chances are not near as great if all
Aggies act like the No. 1 school in the nation.
Only as a method of self-protection should Aggies be
involved in childish battles in the bayou city this weekend.
The major thing every Aggie should have his mind
on is beating Rice, winning the Southwest Conference
championship and the national championship. Minor things
like involving themselves in petty battles should be least
in their minds.
Houston’s thousands will be welcoming the Aggies with
open arms and will be expecting them to act like the men
they claim to be. It will be the worst thing possible for
A&M if we as visitors provoke violence in return for the
city’s warm welcome.

Code Articles Explained
(Editor’s Note: This is the
second in a series of articles on
the proponents’ interpretation of
the Corps Honor Code).
By living under an Honor code,
you are offered many rights that
would not be available without
the Code. The Honor Code pro
tects the honorable student from
the few irresponsible individuals
who have failed to accept the
meaning - of right and wrong. It
means that your spoken word
will be accepted as the truth.
For example, by one of the
occupants of a room saying “all
right” during an inspection for
lost articles it would excuse that
room from the inspection. The use
of the “all right” is an important
part of the code. It can be used
at any time that it might be
deemed appropriate.
All in all, for a man who wants
honor, the code will make his life
more wholesome and livable. If
you, as an individual, want to do
right, you have a chance to gain
something from the code that you
can carry with you the rest of
your life.
Interpretation of Article I—
Under the Honor Code you will
never intentionally tell a lie. A
lie consists of any untruth wheth
er it be spoken or written. A
signature on a false statement
is considered a lie.
A cadet is considered to have
signed his name whether he
prints it, uses only his initials
or signs it in full or in part. A
cadet who knowingly allows
another cadet to affix his signa
ture to any official document
while knowing it to be incorrect
commits a violation of the Honor
Under the Honor Code you
would be expected to be truthful
at all times. This does not mean
that the code could be used for
any other purpose than directly
pertaining to honor among mem
bers of the Corps.
Persons could not be asked
leading questions to make them
Interpretation of Article II—
The taking - of another person’s
property without his consent
with the intent of keeping it is
more commonly known as steal-
iing. Many occasions will arise
where a little common sense will
be all necessary to determine
whether actual theft has taken
For example, it would hardly
be considered a violation of
honor for friends to hide things
as practical jokes.
Interpretation of Article III
—Unauthorized assistance in
cludes the use in class of any in
formation other than that ap
proved by the instructor. This
information might be written or
verbal helps from classmates.
Any material may be used out
side class as long as it was not
obtained by illegal means. Unit
quiz files and personal files are
considered legal. It would be a
violation of the Honor Code for
an individual to copy any piece of
work and turn it in as his own,
since when this individual signs
his name to the work, it means
it is his own personal work.
