Battalion Editorials Pagr 2 FRIDAY MAY 26, 1950 1 \ Postscript to the Swan Son^s . . . Today Th* Battalion i* uml«r new maiUfpMttent. With m-wIy-appointed Hiifnmer e<l»torii taking the rems before the sw-mester even officially end* a new, freenhorn regime has moV»*d in The rettrmg ataffmen for the nu*t part have struck their last keys un Battalion typewriters They have turned out their last line* as the main cofa in a wheel that kept turning day after day, for many months. Now we the new staff would like to editorially add a footnote or two to the 30’s signed yesterday hy the retiring ed itors These men did much to uphold and to improve the standards of both The Battalion and the college They sought no great rewards Their old) purpose was to increase their knowl edge provide themselves with a little en joyment, and lend their efforts to the great amount of work It takes to publish a daily newspaper Any reward or praise that came their way came unsought Kaoh of those men always showed us a high moral sense of right and Wrong If they saw something they believed wrong they did not hesitate to say just that ()n the other hand when they re alized H«»methmg was praiseworthy they took advantage of their positions to laud those efforts We believe they accomplished some thing for both themselves and for the |»er )«etuaUon-of AAM as an educational msti tution Wh^her or not you agreed with their editorial views coverage or articles, they sin Cere !\ wrote what they believed Ho coercion, no high-pressure salesman ship. These men gave practically all of their leisure hours that you might receive ‘'The Batt without tail They gave plenty of gmde-fiomts — '‘expendable they called them They were still working many times when most of us had ts'en long asleep In the process of serving as editors for this year, they reaped many headaches, accomfianled intermittently by fleeting moments of glory At times they had bat tle rovals on their hands with you the nNiders, although you were much more their consttlt pride than sorrow These battles were made to appear infinitesimal by o|*>rational problems that only news men understand Much of their time for the past year Whs s|>ent in grooming us for the |s»sitions we now hold They patiently and effic iently took Us cube into tow and carried ns through the ranks, scolding us prais- ng us never losing sight of the prime quality of understanding They were skilled in the handling of cfe-workers. always a touchy problem and enlarged a thousand-fold on a college mrwHpa|>cr Tem(>ering criticism with a Wonderful sense of humor they had one Word for handling staffmen tact This they employed liberally and it produced tangible results Re* it ouf fortune to receive a degree from this institution we would ask onl\ one more fg\or from the Alnughtv that our future dhiployers be as understanding and as worthy as all of our retiring odi tors The Man ^ho Is Te xas AXM ( nllrge . . .
