Wilcox, head of the department of education and psy chology, will attend a work con ference on resource-use education at the University ojf North Caro lina, March 21-26. Dr. Wilcox will join two other men in representing Texas at the conference. They are J. B. Rutland, state director of resource educa tion and T. R.

We are wondering about the price of Cer tain items offered in the cafeterias. There has beph a lot of talk about the *Tiidden costs.” We wish they would hide some of the cost of food bought in these establish ments. We have looked into the matter some and have come up with these rather startling facts. 1.
