Just as the “I do, I do, too” bit was about to begin, some observ ant attendant noticed that one necessary element was missing. So the best man, hopped into his car and rushed off to find it. Apparently he found it — and got back in time for the ceremon ies. It was lucky that he did—the missing element was the bride Job Calls The following job interviews will be held in the Placement Of fice next week: Tuesday Celanese C o r p o rati o n of America interviews chemical and mechanical engineering and chemistry majors at all degree levels.

Not one step has been made by you or the Civilian Stu dent Council to begin work on any such honor code for the civilians. You keep crying about being left out. Why don’t you learn 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 end of this semester, Corps sen- iox-s will decide if members of the Coxps are prepared to accept the code and will at this time also decide how it will be in stituted. We, the seniors, believe Corps members will realize the advantages of the code and he willing to accept it. Aggies ax^e among the best men in the world. They would benefit by an honor code and we, the isenioi-s are interested in a school wide code. But should we in the Corps wait for one to be instituted for the school? Isn’t this a step forwax-d ? Should we hold back 4,000 men while a few only stand by and criticize work which would lead later to a schoolwide honor code ? When the School of Vetexinary Medicine adopted its honor code it was hailed as a step toward a schoolwide honor code. What has caused the sudden revei-sal of editorial policy? Is the institution of a Corps Honor Code any dif ferent fi‘om the School of Vetex-i- naxy Medicine ? Why should Aggies not have a better chance to become better men and be proud to be Aggies whexi they leave this College ? Theron (Mac) McLaren ’58 Editor: The Battalion “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 the. Civilian stxidents were not honorable enough to be included in such a plan. The closiixg lines of the code are evidence of this: “This code is written with the hope that the pi-inciples expressed - BASIS OF A WHOLE SCHOOL WARDROBE: the new thick-and-thin rib CORDUROY SRORT COAX with leather accents $1® 95 TOPS IN THE PALI COtLEGE-SURVEY: \ a new corduroy, newly sophisticated by' Berkray with leather buttons, leather-piped pockets, matching Paisley lining.

Now let the Civilian stu dents px-esent something concrete and constructive rather than mere adverse criticism. Congratulations to Cox-ps sen iors for at least attempting to formulate an honor code—more than anyone else has done.

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 posts.” “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 apparatus.” PEANUTS By Charles M.

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 1957, Max Shulman * * * 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.
