Worth Mentioning
By Johnny Johnson
After today’s activities in the Coliseum let’s hope that
many of the Men of Aggieland are going around for a few
days with sore arms. Of course to sore arms is the expected
400 men who are to donate blood to the College Station Lions
Club and Student Senate Blood Drive.
Speaking of sore arms, Army ROTC juniors are com
plaining of sore arms from their multitude of shots in pre
paration for summer camp.

Monday night the Arts and Sciences Council, composed
of a junior and a senior representative from each department
or division in the School of Arts and Sciences, will revive the
question of whether or not Texas A&M should have an honor
code. ^
The honor code question
is one that/dates back in re
cent years to the 1957-58
school year when a group
of Corps juniors started work on
the code. That group got so far
as to even have a proposed code.
During last year, many meetings
were held on the proposed code
with the project being finally
dropped for lack of interest.
The planned action Monday
night by the Arts and Sciences
Council will be the first organ
ized activity on an honor code
for the 1959-60 school year.
If the members of the Arts and
Sciences Council can discover a

The problems involved in in
stituting an honor code at Texas
A&M are many. Unlike the serv
ice academies—which are the ma
jor educational institutions that
have honor codes—Texas A&M
does not select its students as do
the academies. For the honor-
code to be workable, every . stu
dent at Texas A&M must be
either honest when he arrives at
Texas A&M or be of such a char
acter that he would abide by the
honor code.
As evidenced by the numerous
thefts from physical education
clashes lockers, petty thievery in
the dorms and the incident in
volving an honor system for pur
chasing candy described in a re
cent letter to the Editor by Jack
Cooper, ’59, Texas A&M at pres

For the good of Texas A&M,
we hope that the Arts and Sci
ences Council will approach the
problem in such a way that they
will be able to .accomplish what
could not be done before.

Since the last maritime con

has granted Denmark exclusive
fishing rights in a 6-mile belt

And Iceland triggered a “fish

Many maritime nations still
abide by the 3-mile limit gen

more smaller and younger coun
