Dead Weec Begins Mon.;
Final Tests Start May 12
For instance men need to watch
their guides because the draft is
watching them. Along the same
line athletes there's a Texas Con-
ference tilling about grades.
Then there's the rule about rep-
lesenting the college on tour or
convention it's necessary to have
a C average. Also no student of-
fices can be held without a good
scholastic standing nor are social
clubs allowed to pledge a student
who doesn't have a C average.
To keep that scholarship your
grades have to be good. And last
but far from least you have to
contend with your parents if those
grades are low.
