New Placement Office Quarters Larry Shive, senior business administration major from Harlingen, left, is only one of the many graduating seniors taking advant ages of the facilities of the Placement Office and enjoying it in their new headquarters on the third floor of the YMCA. The Place ment Office was first located in a converted Army barracks near the new Dormitory Area and was moved to the second floor of the YMCA at the beginning of the 1959-60 school year. They moved into their new quarters on the third floor last week. As sisting Shive is Mrs. Gladys Bishop, secre tary in the office. . Complete with New Library Placement Office, Others Enjoy YMCA Quarters By ALAN PAYNE Assistant News' Editor The Placement Office, Office of Jtudent Employment and Loans and Short Course Office have been in their new location on the third floor of the YMCA Building since * early in March and are extremely proud of their new quarters, ac cording to Wendell R. Horsley, director of the Placement Office. * The offices include 10 interview ing and conference rooms for em ployment recruiters, the three sep arate offices and a new informa tion library. Horsley explained that the Placement Office personnel are es pecially proud of the new library. He said that the manner in which material is displayed, on a peg hoard with racks, is one of the most unique methods he has ever seen. Horsley also expressed the belief that this method might pos sibly be the only one in existence at the present time. Horsley also stated that the new furnishings, special equipment and a special communication system between the separate offices and the interviewing and conference rooms were a great help to both the recruiters and the students ap plying for interviews. The new offices will make it much easier for the approximately 450 company representatives who visit the campus in quest of grad uating seniors each year, he said. In addition to these personal representatives, another 1,000 com panies solicit students by mail. Horsley stated that these figures revealed that approximately 7,000 interviews are conducted every year, by mail or in person. Horsley concluded by saying, “We are especially grateful to the administration for our new quar ters. We are now proud to invite businessmen to our offices and no longer have to be apologetic for the condition of our quarters. The new offices also make it much easier for our boys to make a good impression and sell them selves to the recruiters.” As of yet, nothing has been de cided about what will become of the former Placement Office on the second floor of the YMCA Building, said Horsley. ©ft pwlaims il)?

The speaker, Robert W. Cooper, Texas Agricultural Extension Ser vice economist in farm organiza tion, said the personnel the direc tors employ and the policies they formulate are direct indications of their effectiveness in co-op man agement. He said the major responsibility of hired management is to direct the actual operation of the co-op and advise and assist the board. Usually, the manager is the best informed individual regarding the needs of the organization. Makes Decisions The most important thing that a hoard does is to make sound judgment decisions on significant matters, Cooper told the group. The co-operative managers school, which this year reached a new attendance high — 155 — was sponsored by the Texas Agricul tural Extension Service, Houston Bank for Co-Operatives and the Texas Federation of Co-Operatives. Directors Included In the past, the school has been directed toward co-op managers. But this year, directors also Were invited and were the subject of Cooper’s talk. Reagan Brown, rural sociologist with the extension service, out lined self-help programs under way by 920 organized Texas com munities, which heretofore were threatened with economic oblivion. About 213 of these communities are participating in a state-wide improvement plan sponsored by electric companies and the exten sion service. He said the program has four main objectives — improved farm income, better homes and farms, better health and services and in creased social activity. Citing the industrialization trend in Texas, Brown said only about 10 per cent of the population now lives in the country and three out of five persons in rural areas do not farm. He predicted that around 400 small towns will “dry up” and fail to progress unless co-operatives and citizens forget their differences. “Co-ops need the community more than the community needs the co-ops,” he said. “If a town is asleep and its citizens wrangle among themselves, they will be left behind.” Church Holds Together The sociologist said that about the only thing holding some rural communities- together today is the rural church. Dr. A. B. Wooten, associate pro fessor in the Department of Agri cultural Economics, described con ditions if production controls were removed from the American farm scene. Carryover of surplus, govern ment-held stocks would be sig nificantly reduced, he said. Wooten said his talk was not an endorsement or an analysis of any proposed farm program. ‘Public Dog House’ The nation’s agriculture is in the “public dog house” as the re sult of bad public relations, Dr. R. D. Lewis, director of the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station, told the group. President Earl Rudder gave a welcoming address at the school’s opening session, and John E. Hutchison, director of the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, presented certificates of course completion.
