B ryan D aily BRYAN, TEXAS, WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 30, 1925. (BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS) NUMBER «». HOPE STILL EXISTS FOR CREW OF SUBMARINE S-51! After reading the explanation of the milk grading ordinance as printed in the Eagle of Tuesday, I want to heartily commend auch action to the City Commission of the City of Bryan. I believe, like the Federal official, that the lives of the peoj)le are far more important than the success of any one industry and it is a matter of common knowledge that milk possesses the property of spreading contagion more easily than many other things, even including water, and ■great epidemics may result from contaminated milk supply. I can readily understand wherein both dairyman and general public would profit by the ordinance and the only one that might possibly suffer would be those who could not make their dairies confonn to the standards required for grades “A” or “B” and the safety of the majority would dornand that their general good be paramount o^ver ihi- husinesses of a small minority.

College product. This need was satis- .; fied Tue.sday night during “Yellj Practice’’ at College Station by j the introduction of “The Spirit of Aggielund”, The words of the new song were written by .Marvin M. Mimms, a senior at A. and M. from Marlin, who also suggested the tune of the song. The work was begun during the latter part of last July and the published song appeared on sale at t'ollege Station, Tuesday night, September 29. Credit for writing the music of the "Spirit of Aggieland’’ belongs to Richard J. Dunn, talented Bandmaster of the A. and M. College hand. He has just completed the task of writing over one hundred manuscript copies for the A. and M. College band. A. and M.'s hundred piece band played the “Spirit of Aggieland" last night at “Yell I*ractice’’; first loud and then softly, with J. D. I.argford, celebrated band member and soloist singing. E. O, Buck, chief yell leader at A. and M. then made a brief talk praising the song for its merits and also introduced Marvin H, Mimms as the author and publisher. The new song took the cadet corps by surprise and everyone seemed thrilled and eager to praise it. “The Spirit of Aggieland’’ has been judged by critics to be the best college song in the Southwest and one of the best in the United States, It is written in snappy six-eights time and will be used as a march to lead the cadet corps on all reviews and parades. The authors of “The Spirit of Aggie- larid’’ merit much credit for their accomplishment and the name of its popular originator will be honored by the countless generations of students who will attend A. and M. during the years that are to come.

Walton With a Banquet HOUSTON, Sept. 30.— Something in his life that he “can not overcome“ has caused a Houston man to seek death—and he wants it be “in a hazardous underaking which will save some man upon whose shoulders rests the responsibility of a family.” This man with an apparently keen, properly functioning mind has prepared a letter to Gon-ernor Miriam A. Ferguson, asking that he be assigned to a duty where the “possibility of death is 100 per cent”. His letter, a neatly typewTitteu document, bears all the earmarks of sober and coherent thinking. He asks the governor tu place him in a dangerous situation as soon as possible, “or I will bring my days to an end in this or that The banquet hall of the Green Parrot Tea Room was w-ell filled more than 125 diners on last ev. ening, practically every business establishment of the city of Bryan being represented at the reception tendered in honor of President T. 0. Walton, n^’ executive of the A. and M. College, and Mrs. Walton. The only thing to mar the complete success of the evening was the absence of s<-me of the distinguished guests who were unable to be present though they had previously planned to do so. The spirit of the occasion was all that could be asked and a feeling of comradeship, friendliness and informality hovered over the assemblage. The attendants filed in to their seats shortly after 7:30 o’clock, rence formally introducted Hon. W. C. Daris to preside as toastmaster. Weynote Is Sounded. Judge Davis outlined the reasons for the gathering of the evening and expressed gratification over the wonderful attendance present to pay homge to the honor guests. In stating that Bryan was proud of having been the home of four members of the Board of Directors, he paid a glowing tribute to the work of the late Major W, R. Cavitt, after which he introduced another former director, E. H. .\stin, to discuss Bryan’s relations to the College. It w’as in Mr. .\stin's talk that the keynote of the whole evening was sounded when he stated that the A, and M. College did not belong to Bryan, when he was a member of the first faculty. Major L. L. Mclnnis. He gave a resume of the history of the institution and recounted its grow’th and development, as well as its changing curriculum of over the period of nearly 50 years. He closed with an appeal for unified support of the institution and a thorough knowledge of conditions prevailing to the end that all may unite in combating any efforts to restrict the usefulness of the Extension Service Department, or to limit the college to a strictly agricultural and mechanical institu tion. Senator R. S. Bowers was called upon for an impromptu address and in his remarks said that he w'elconied President T. 0. Walton as a member of the State Legislature, him in his new capacity, and meet him, they surely would. Short—To th« Point. Hon. W. C. Boyett, College Station, member of the Board of Directors, made the shortest and probably the most pointed talk of the evening. He said much in a few words and his remarks were the subject of much favorable comment at the close of the ban quet and he was given considerable praise by his many friends. He said he was to talk on “The Need;, of the College” and that thes« needs had been supplied in the election of T. O. Walton as President of A. and M. He said, however, that the people present and others should get behind the legislature to the end that adequate dormitories might be built to
