Reveille’s rites tonight at Kyle Funeral services for Reveille III, Texas A&M’s third mascot, begin at seven tonight at Kyle Field. The nine-year-old registered American Collie died May 31 after an extended illness. After students are seated in the north side “horseshoe of the stadium, Mike Clark, commanding officer of Company E-2, will open the 20-minute rite with brief histories of Reveille I, II, III, and IV. Donnie Albrecht, president of the Student V Association, will then speak about the effect Reveille III and her predecessors had on Aggie Spirit. Mike Marchand, corps chaplain, will deliver the eulogy, andj. H. Allen, one of Reveille’s former escorts, will recite a poem in honor of this “First Lady of the Corps of Cadets. Interment will be at the north end of Kyle where the mascot’s predecessors are also buried. Only Company E-2 will attend this burial ceremony due to space limitations. However the Singing Cadets and the Texas Aggie Band will perform an the company marches from the field and view of those in the stadium. Both “Auld Lang Syne and “The Spirit of Aggieland ’ are scheduled for this performance. During these numbers, five of Reveille’s nine former escorts and constant companions will bury her. Although two are expected from out-of-town, four could not attend because they are either out-of-state or out-of-the-country. However, those assisting (in order of their service to the mascot) are: Victor Harris of San Antonio, Thomas Rideout of Houston, as well as Bobby Hovel, J. H. Allen, and Don Jones, both A&M students. Bob Vanderberry and his new charge. Reveille IV, will also observe Reveille Ill s burial. Pallbearers are Jay Dietz, Mike McCabe, Mike Pauling and Rock Shoemaker, all seniors in Company E-2. Reveille III was given to the student body in 1966by Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Husa of Fairbanks, Ala., the parents of two students here then. The purebred Collie was known to respond with spirited barking whenever one would signal her with a “blow on the first. Playful, she was also frequently seen chasing an orange frisbee with E-2 cadets. Even though Reveille III attended numerous athletic and military events during her life here, she didn t slight the academic arena. Jones, her final full-time guardian, said she often attended classes with him hut would begin barking if the instructor would talk over time. A Memorial yell practice at the stadium follows at 7:30 p.m. All funeral arrangements are under the direction of Company E-2 although a pine casket was donated by a local funeral home.

The following areas, accompan ied by estimate of total cost, will be finished bv next spring: AREA ' COST DATE 1. Shisn Hall renoNittion $1 million winter/ 75 2.

Motor Pool $1 million winter/'7f» lacilitx Total cost of the construction presently underway, said Brunt, is expected to reach $56 million. The funds for construction origi nates from several different sourc es, Brunt said. Monies for auxiliary services such as the Sbisa Hall renovation, Mosher-Aston, parking lots and athletic facilities are paid for by income generated by the facilities. Bonds are pledged against the cost which is then paid for by room rentals, payments on board plans, football tickets and parking stickers. The building of classrooms and the improvement educational facil ities are paid for by the Available University Fund (a constitutionally- provided source of income for A&M). This fund can be used in only educational areas, and not for auxiliary services that generate their own income. “One of the reasons for the con struction is a basic desire to improve the campus for the Centennial, Bi unt said. ....—■ . . . * . , 'V .7, I .w. 5 "- < .

But for the average cadet at Texas A&M University, moving into a room at the beginning of the year means a temporary lodging at best. Once a semester, the corps dorm area becomes a maze of people car- rying assorted belongings from one dorm to the next, from the fourth floor to the first or from room 207 to 208. Many cadets are moving because their unit is joining the rest of the brigade in another dorm. Some move to fill rooms vacated due to early losses and “no-shows ’, those who change their minds about col lege at the last minute. Other cadets, mostly freshmen and sophomores, move when a junior who has a carpet cut to fit a right-handed room is originally as signed to a left-handed room. (The position of the sink and room di vider determines the handedness of the room.) But whatever the reason, on a Sunday afternoon shortly after the beginning of a semester, the Dun can quad is alive with the com plaints of those who have to move and the whoops and whoo-wahs of the cadets who were fortunate enough to miss the call. Moving day is characterized by freshmen whose meager amount of gear is transferred in short order but who pitch in to help move their up perclassmen’s belongings in a com radely sort of way. Then there is the sophomore who proudly struggles under the burden of his new wall-to-wall carpet. He can later be seen carrying a pair of maroon and white drapes, emblazoned with his class number, still hanging on the curtain rod, while balancing all his military hats on his head. The junior who arrived on cam pus a week early piffling a U-Haul trailer is a sad sight to see on moving day. His collections of beer clocks and revolving lights cause almost as much of a problem as putting the beds back together. Many can be seen hunting for an extra desk to replace the one discarded in favor of a couch and refrigerator. Seniors are the hardest to under stand. Some have forsaken comfort for convenience in their old age. Others pull out the stops in remod eling their spartan dorm rooms into plush bachelor pads. The extravagant seniors are the most vocal when it comes time for them to tear out paneled cabinets and entertainment centers and start all over in another location. Last but not least are those who don’t have to move at all because (Cither proper foresight and anticipa tion of needs or dumb luck. These (Cadets usually loiter around the .dorm area until they tire ofwatching their buddies sweat and toil. El Chico’s during Happy Hour is a favorite haunt for Aggies who are trying to forget that the rest of the Corps of Cadets will probably be up until midnight moving out and mov ing in again. ★★★★★★★★★ Weather Almost cloudy with a little bit of sun on Tuesday.
