I appreciate the letters from those with differing views
from mine on the Corps Honor Code controversy. It’s good
to know there’s interest in campus affairs.
It’s regrettable we can’t agree on everything. But the
Letters to the Editor column is for your views. Use it but
please keep letters shorter.

something about the code, its
organization and benefits instead
of pushing it backwards.
Orientation has been started
for the pi’opoised code. Befox-e the

also decide how it will be in

“An Aggie will not cheat, lie
or steal or tolex-ate those who do.”
This simple statement begins
the controversial honor code pro
posed and formulated by a group
of students intex-ested in raising
ideals and standax-ds at A&M.
They felt that a need’existed for
spch a code and believed it might
best begin within the Coips be
cause of its supei-ior organization.
This group never intended to
insinuate that the code was ex
clusively for the Cox-ps or that

honorable enough to be included
in such a plan. The closiixg lines
of the code are evidence of this:

WHAT TO DO TILL THE
Once upon a time at the University of Virginia, there was.
a coed named, oddly enough, Virginia University who was
handsome and kindly and intelligent and ingeniously con
structed and majoring in psychology. Virginia went steady
with a young man on campus named, oddly enough,
Oddly Enough who was supple and fair and lithe and ani
mated and majoring in phys ed.
Virginia and Oddly enjoyed a romance that was as
idyllic as a summer day, as placid as a millpond. Never
did they fight—never, never, never!—because Virginia,
who was majoring in psychology, did not believe in fight
ing. “Fighting,” she often said, “sett les nothing. The sci
entific way is to look calmly for the cause of the friction.”
So whenever she and Oddly were on the verge of a
quarrel, she used to whip out a series of ink blot tests and
they would discover the true underlying cause of their
dispute and deal with it in an enlightened, dispassionate
manner. Then, the irritant removed, their romance would
resume its tranquil, serene, unruffled course.
After six months of this sedate liaison, Oddly was so
bored he could spit. He loved Virginia well enough, but
he also believed that people in love ought to fight now
and then. “It opens the pores,” he said. “And besides, it’s
so much fun making up afterwards.”
But Virginia would not be provoked into a quarrel.
One night Oddly tried very hard. “Hey,” he said to her,
“your hair looks like a bat’s nest and your ears look like
last year’s turnips and your face looks like a pan of worms
and as for your head, I’ve seen better heads on newel
“My goodness, we’re hostile tonight!” said Virginia
cheerfully and whipped 120 Rorschach cards out of her
reticule. “Come,” she said, “let us examine your psychic

Oddly tried again. “Who makes your clothes?” he
sneered. “Bethlehem Steel?”
“Hmm,” said Virginia thoughtfully and lit a cigarette
“This sounds like an anxiety neurosis with totemism,
anagogic trauma, and a belt in the back.”
“I hate you,” said Oddly. “I hate your looks and your
clothes and your toenails and your relatives and the
cigarettes you smoke.”
“Now, hold on, buster!” cried Virginia, her eyes crack
ling, her color mounting, her nostrils aflame. “Just keep a
civil tongue in your stupid head when you talk about
Marlboro! Nobody’s knocking that filter, that flavor,
that flip-top box while there’s breath in my body! It’s a
great cigarette, it’s a doozy, it’s a dilly, it’s a bear—and
anybody who says a word against it gets this.’.’
By “this” Virginia meant a series of combinations to
the head and liver, which she now delivered to Oddly and
turned on her heel and stormed away.
Oddly brought her down with a flying tackle. “I love
you,” he said.
“And Marlboro?” said she.
“And Marlboro,” said he.
And they kissed and plaited love knots in one another’s
hair and were married at Whitsun and smoked happily

And you too, gentle readers, will smoke happily ever after,
once you try Marlboro, the cigarette that gives you such a
lot to like—including, we earnestly hope, this column.
