Maybe you take grades too seriously!” By The Associated Press NEW YORK—Remarks a tele vision cowboy star gets tired of hearing: “Of course this horse is per fectly safe.

L. Downs, Jr., official greeter of the College announced today. They were attending short cour ses, conferences, class reunions and other scheduled meetings. The college had 716,516 visitors on the campus for scheduled meetings and activities during the twelve year period from June 1, 1949 to June 1, 1961. There were twenty two different groups on the campus during the month of May. It has been estimated that those visitors who stay over night in the Bryan-College Station area spend an average of $14 each. Since 716,516 persons have visited the campus in twelve years they have left $10,031,224 or approxi mately a million dollars per year. End of Trujillo Regime May Improve U. S. Relations . By STANFORD BRADSHAW Associated Press Staff WASHINGTON—The end of the 31-year regime of Generalissimo Rafael Leonidas Trujillo of the Dominican Republic may free the United States of a millstone in its inter-American relations. It also could help the United States in its campaign to induce inter-American measures that could cause the overthrow of Prime Minister Fidel Castro’s regime in Cuba. But Trujillo’s assassination nev ertheless, poses grave problems for the United States, as well as for the other nations of the hemi sphere. The first question to be an swered is who will succeed him. A Dominican radio station, Ra dio Caribe, announced a decree or dering nine days of mourning. The radio said it was signed by Presi dent Joaquin Balaguer. This would indicate that power in the Domin ican Republic is continuing in the hands of elements aligned with Trujillo. Balaguer became presi dent last Adgust and has been closely identified with Trujillo. Other fragmentary reports ar riving from travelers who have just left the Dominican Republic indicate the Dominican army is in control. ARMY, WHAT IS AGGIELAND TO YOU? Aggieland means many different things to many different people. To some it is the place they met their lifetime friends and received their formal education, to others it is the place they learned how to be a man and to get along with their fellow man. Although Aggieland may have a special meaning for each Aggie, all have memories of yelling for that Fightin’ Aggie Team as we beat T. U. or of singing The Twelfth Man when we didn’t yell loud enough. Army, when we go home after these finals let’s throw our chests out and tell the world that we are proud to be a Fightin’ Texas Aggie. Let’s keep alive the heritage left to us by our buddies we’ve honored with Silver Taps who are no longer able to share it with us.

BOB SLOAN EDITOR Tommy Holbein Managing Editor Larry Smith Sports Editor Alan Payne, Ronnie Bookman News Editors Gerry Brown, Robert Denney Staff Writers Johnny Herrin Photographer Jim Earle Cartoonist Whether the army would step aside for a return to civilian con trol by elements which opposed Trujillo is not known. The elements could include: The middle class, which grew under Trujillo, but hated the iron hand with which he ruled the island. In January 1960, he uncovered a plot against him and jailed over 2,000 persons. Castro sympathisers and Com munists, who also hated the iron hand, although Trujillo this year had been playing up to both, prais ing Castro’s achievements on his Radio Caribe and making gestures toward the Soviet Union. Exiles, who have their own movement in the United States and Puerto Rico, and include members of the middle class and Castro sympathizers. Trujillo, who came to power in 1930, in the wake of U. S. Marine occupation of the island, had al ways sought to identify himself closely with the United States and represent himself as a friend. His embrace was embarrassing for the United States, in its deal ing with liberal elements in the Americas who hated dictatorships but it was not until recently that there was a complete dissociation. Last August, at the conference of foreign ministers of the Organ ization of American States at San Jose, Costa Rica, the United States took the lead in acting on a Venezuelan move to impose sanc tions on Trujillo as a "threat the peace of the hemisphere.” An OAS investigating team had found evidence linking Trujillo to the June attempt to assassinate Venezuelan President Romulo Bet ancourt. The conference voted to have all OAS members break dip lomatic relations. This ostricism by the inter- American community, the decline in income from the principal ex port Cropland a continuing battle with the Roman Catholic Church, all may have been factors in the explosion.

We’re about ready to shoot.” “So what if someone did acci dentally give you a black eye in that last barroom brawl ? Iff only make the scene more real istic.” “I know cows make you nerv ous, but in this shot we simply have to put in a few. After all, you’re supposed to be riding herd.” “Oh, no! Oh, no! Don’t tell me the guy’s gone and put his chaps on backward again.” “Now don’t panic, Con, but your stand-in is sick and couldn’t show up. I’m afraid you’ll have to ride the horse yourself today. But it’ll be okay. We’ll help you get on and off.” “Just walk up this step ladder slow and easy, put one leg over the saddle and—oops, he’s fallen again.” “I don’t know who the fastest gun in the West is, but I sure know who’s the slowest.” “In the next scene, just as you are about to kiss the heroine, the horse sticks his head between you, and you kiss him square on the muzzle. So what if it isn’t sani tary ? It’ll wow the audience.” “All right, Hamlet, get out of that velvet dressing gown and climb into your Levis. We’ve got a job to to.” “As I understand it, Con, the real old-timers gripped the gun in one hand, not two, and generally they didn’t shut their eyes when they pulled the trigger. And, by the way, do you have to hold it like it was a pineapple?” “But I tell you we have to put a little dirt on your face. After all, you’re supposed to have beer, riding hard all day.” “Your valet is late. Do you sup pose, just this once, you could ge J into that cowboy suit all by your self?” “Don’t grimace when the bar tender slides the bottle down the bar to you. Remember, it’s really only ginger ale.” “Well, if it makes you fell any safei’, Con, we’ll let you ride side saddle—and pretend you’re only doing it as a lark.” “Stop the camera, Jake, he’s be ginning to fall again.
