Yell leaders speak on A&M traditions during symposium By Leslie Farguson Reporter Head yell leader Marty Holmes said Wednesday that when he came to Texas A&M he was taught tradi tions and he feels it is his duty to pass these traditions untarnished down to new students. “Traditions have been lacking and we’re trying to get them back,” Holmes said. Speaking at Sully’s Symposium, Holmes said one of the biggest prob lems he has as a yell leader is trying to get people to say “howdy.” He pointed out that the word it self isn’t that important, but ac knowledging the presence of other people on campus is. “This is one of our biggest com plaints from old Ags,” Holmes said. He was accompanied by three of the four other yell leaders: Troy Ire land, Doug Beall and John Bean. Holmes also told listeners about Kyle Field rules. “You cannot have signs or beach balls at Kyle Field,” Holmes said. “You also can’t bring booze into the stadium.” He reminded listeners that they are not supposed to hiss after Aggie yells. “That’s like hissing at ourselves,” he said. “Aggies don’t boo either. We’re supposed to be above that.” Holmes said it is the former stu dents that seem the most concerned about keeping up tradition. “I am going to keep getting on my soapbox until things get better,” Holmes said. The symposium is sponsored by Lambda Sigma, a sophomore honor service society, and is held in front of the Lawrence Sullivan Ross statue every Wednesday at 11:50 a.m. Mauro: Beach cleanup priority for commission By Leigh Ann Rogers Reporter Texas Land Commissioner Garry Mauro said Wednesday that his of fice will make clean Texas beaches a major priority with a four-part plan for beach cleanup. In a press conference at Eas- terwood Airport, Mauro said the plan includes new get-tough regula tions against offshore dumping and will emphasize the commission’s “Don’t Mess With Texas” slogan. Mauro said he will tighten regula tions against offshore dumping by operators of offshore platforms and seismic boats. He said that between 75 percent and 90 percent of the state’s beach litter is washed ashore from the Gulf of Mexico. He added that only 15 percent can be attributed to dump ing from offshore platforms and seismic vessels. “As land commissioner, I can make a 15 percent difference by making sure that anyone messing with Texas beaches loses their lea ses,” Mauro said. Mauro said the commission also will work with local and state govern ments to ensure that visitors don’t litter on Texas beaches. He said the third part of the plan is to gain the cooperation of the fed eral government and the Gulf states, especially Louisiana, to stop plat form dumping outside Texas. “Texas has about 92 platforms in Garry Mauro Texas state waters and 295 plat forms in federal state waters,” Mauro said. “Louisiana has 3100 platforms in Louisiana state waters,” Mauro said. He used a shoreline map to point out that currents pull the Louisiana trash over to Texas waters. “The fourth part of the plan — and the most important part —' is to work with foreign governments, the Texas Maritime Commission and the United States Department of Ag riculture, to curb ocean dumping by international shipping,” Mauro said. This dumping is a problem be cause of the shipping lanes and the seven ports in Texas, Mauro said. >4 learn to play NUCLEAR MONOPOLY ■ 1 ■ NOVA FRIDAY,.
