Lyons, M.D., hos pital director, dispenses aspirin, myocin and humor in measured doses. Sunburns, especially after Splash Day, are a major contribu tor to medics’ long days. Several hundred a year are checked, of which two or three are severe. The worst seen at the hospital was from a youth sleeping under a sun lamp. Another came off Galveston’s beach. The Aggie got a surplus of sun on Saturday, so his bud dies covered him with wet sand on Sunday, protecting his face with newspaper. The mound of sa»»t was “flagged” with the Ag gie’s feet, left uncovered and pointing south. “All he had burned was the bottom of his feet,” Lyons re marked. “They were cooked the way I like steak.” Another warm-weather prob lem is poison ivy. No case can top Lyons’ own, a 100 per cent coverage from dewberry picking. Three hundred X-rays a month reveal a variety of fractures. One student returned to the campus with an odd feel to his jaw from bull-dogging a steer. During the match, a horn popped into the Aggie’s mouth. Officers Chosen By Debate Team A&M debaters began prepara tions for next year’s agenda with the election of officers and the initiation of five new pledges. Sophomore David Gay of Col lege Station will head the campus’ Texas Alpha Alpha Chapter of Pi Kappa Delta, national honor de bate society. Other officers are freshmen Wayne Prescott of Houston, sec retary-treasurer, and David Mad dox of College Station, public re lations head. New pledges are freshmen Mark Caperton of Caldwell, Ron Hinds of Midland, Prescott and Maddox. Benny Mays, a sopho more from Brashear, was also initiated into the fraternity at a barbecue-banquet Saturday, host ed by the group’s sponsor, Carl Kell. Also at the banquet $25 cash awards were presented to Mad dox, Hinds, Prescott, Gay and Mays. Freshman Wins Graphics Award John W. Davis of Estreito, Brazil, was chosen the outstand ing freshman engineering graph ics student here this week. The agricultural engineering student received the “T. R. Spence Award” — an engraved wrist watch. Lawrence C. Schilhab of San Antonio, Earl F. Carls of College Station and Harry G. Roberts, also of the Alamo city captured first, second and third in working drawings. In the descriptive geometry problems, the top three included Davis, Geoffrey W. Kinison of Houston and E. E.

Cowart For County Clerk Brazos County * Pd. Pol. Ad. He reported having problems drinking water. X-rays showed his jaw had been broken loose from his skull. In peak periods, radiation flows at the rate of 500 X-rays a month in the self - supporting hospital. The figure includes army physi cals. The hospital staff adminis ters workmen’s compensation pre employment physicals, too. The Ohio State University- trained Lyons, who has student medical service at the University of Montana and Virginia Poly technic Institute at Blacksburg, had a power mower case in which wire had to be chiseled from a man’s ankle. Snake bites from cadet outfit picnics contribute to the 63-hour week worked by hospital doctors. Cuts and lacerations nosedived with closing of the Clay Pits. Colds, sore throats and blisters are major items serviced from the $9.50 student school year fee, which returns $3 in medical care per dollar invested. The hospital operates at a $3.41 cost per patient-day, supplying medicine free for all but chronic ailments. Hypochondriacs take up time. During an epidemic a student re ported believing he had the flu. Dr. Lyons took a 98.6 temperature and asked the youth how he felt. “Fine,” he replied, “but mother told me to see if I have the flu.” “After coming in here where we have 237 cases, you probably do now,” Lyons rejoined. Soph Appointed To AF Academy Moses Herrera of Palestine, a sophomore, has received an ap pointment to the U. S. Air Force Academy. The 19-year-old chemistry ma jor reports to Colorado Springs, Colo., in June. He earned a place in the Academy’s 1970 class through competitive exams and screening boards.

Telephone Bill Changes Due With May Monthly Statement Monthly telephone bills will have a new look beginning with the May statements, according to Rex Bailey, Division Manager for Southwestern State Telephone Company. He said the changes would i’e- sult from processing by the new IBM computer system at the com pany’s accounting center in San Angelo. The most notable change will be in the billing for some long-dis tance calls. Calls placed from College Station-Bryan and neigh boring communities will be handl ed as in the past. However, some calls placed from out-of-town and charged to local numbers will be itemized on the statement, and no long dis tance tickets will be enclosed for these calls. This will involve some collect calls and credit card calls placed in other towns. Changes in the dates that state ments are mailed will be the other HELP! HELP! I'D GIVE ANYTHING TO SAVE DEAR NICK FROM GETTING ROUGHED UP WHILE SHAVING CLOSE! SOB-SOB Great idea for his birthday. Or any big occasion. The Norelco 'Flip-Top' Speedshaver® 20. Just about the most wanted shaver there is for closeness and comfort. Famous Norelco rotary blades stroke whiskers off. No grab. No pull. No cut. No nick. Easy 'flip- top' cleaning, too. It costs less than a cashmere sweater —and you get a smoother date out of it. P.S. If you want to spend a little more, give the Norelco Speedshaver 30 (at right). 35% closer shaves. ‘Floating heads,' too. And a pop-up trimmer for sideburns.
