Easter Holidays See Rise In Tall Tales By Students i!" “—Jk Depopulation of the world is ■imminent if one. believes all the L J stories of dying- relatives college wV| profs are told just before a holi day. Easter holidays begin at A&M at 5 p.m. Wednesday. Everyone wants to leave early. The "excuses take heavily tolls i grandmothers, uncles and aunts. A death in the family is the old standby to get out of | Wednesday afternoon classes. “By my calculations, every car on the campus leaves four hours early,” remarked one engineer- | ing-oriented professor. Five days before the five-day | spring recess begins, two stu- | dents had come forward to miss his two-hour engineering draw ing class. A students hurried to his prof’s desk ohe morning, stating breath lessly: “Sammy died and I have to get right home.”' ' The prof looked askance but asked no questions. Had he asked, the instructor would have found Sammy was the family’s pet cat. Another' faint of breath cadet careened int6 class and plopped into a chair. The teacher looked at his dilated eyes, twitching fin gers and queried the student as to whether he should take the major quiz, set for the day be fore leave. The Aggie didn’t know. “How did you get yourself in this condidtion,” the prof asked, setting himself up. “I just finished my solo flight at Easterwood Airport,” the ca det quaked. Other miraculous excuses are born daily and will likely con tinue as long as future scientists apply their well-developed think ing systems to producing them. Pinkie Says...

Grants are offered to attract capable students with specific skills and abilities to the Air Force, explained Col. Raymond C. Lee, professor of aerospace studies. Inception of the program this year allows one award to a fully qualified senior cadet per detachment. The two-year grant pays re quired fees and tuition, $75 per year for books and $50 a month. Grants go primarily to cadets entering the third year of a four-year AFROTC program. A&M’s nominated cadets have satisfied minimum qualifications of at least a 1.88 grade point ratio on a 3.0 scale, 30. per cent score on the officer qualifying test, and physical, personal and moral at tributes expected of Air Force Officers. Awards are based on individ ual performance and qualifica tions, with each recipient review ed periodically, Lee noted. A central selection board at AFROTC Headquarters will de termine recipients. Selection will be announced by May 15.
