In the 1940's, Texas A. & M. College was strictly a military school and was well known for its discipline as well as its academic program. Times have changed and the school has changed. This entertaining book, which documents a period in A. & M. history, is based primarily on the author's freshman year of 1946. It begins by relating events leading up to his enrollment, followed by the blur of activity during freshman orientation week, and the chaos of registration week. A brief physical description of the school at that time is given, along with an explanation of the Cadet Corps organization, emphasizing the disciplinary system that was administered by the Cadets. Finally, the book tells about the dormitory, academic, and social life of the students, focusing on the cadets' escapades and rivalries, including many humorous anecdotes. These stories and descriptions are followed by a discussion of the merits of the school's superior academic and character-building programs.
