The proprietor who had a long white pig-tail and a mouthful of tobacco greeted me with a smile and I felt the firm hand-grasp of Teddy Maed- gen of Model Laundry fame. Pass- re, Ng on down the street I heard a familiar voice calling, ‘'Dbn’t you niver get hungry } A whole hog a biscuit, hii for a dime.” I coald hardly believe my eyes for tljerc with a loaf \of bread in one hand and a ham in the other stood Slfisa'sright hand man, ‘'Civilized” ^Teller. ' The fair was over and On my way home I had occasion to inspect some mining property in the Rocky Mountains. One of the holes in the ground which .resembled au old mine was sending forth large clouds of smoke from the ftowelsof hades. I instantly recognized the scent of ottr Textile Edgineering section. 2 arrived at home at last and as I was behind on. the news I picked up a paper and began to read. The tiikt article I glanced at caught my eyt. It reau as follows: College Station, Texas. Feb. 31,a <1949. Special to the Houston PoM.—The faculty of the A. and M. College today passed a regulation isetting aside a {tension find for the Itenefit of aged employes of the college and Students of long standing.

The Farm Husbandry Juniors have two and one-half hours prac tice per -week for two terms in the Farm Machinery •Depprta^em, ^ Thi* practice is made more prac tical by three hoars of theory per tveek which consists ofc lectures. These embraces the principle* up on which farm machinery is con structed, such as the names of the ^different, parts, the kind of work it is capable of doing and! rnMnnar of doing it. The points to l* con sidered in selecting a machine, such ns strength of material, simplicity of structure, ease of draft, quality of work and labor involved in run-, tiing it both from the standpoint of the leant and the operator. For example if takes up a harvester, giving the name> of the different irts, the principles upon Whifch it constructed, nature of the work 4oaq, and details as to putting up ♦nd operating. i The practice you ipight say is putting into operation the theory, in fact, theory would be of little benefit without the practice, hence the department has fatm- iaaple- tpentsof *11 kinds,, such as gasoline ehgines, binders, harvested, sbred- dfcrs, grinders, mowers, rakes, hai- ebws,’ sffeders. etc., of • various n»akes. *A shaft runs through the efinter of the building and each machine can be put in operaticDi fry tf»e use of one of the gasoline en gfnes.

They an- not allowed to leave a machine uotil every piece‘is put together aijd the machine in operation. In cqpe something goes wrong they h^ve to find the trouble, which soon developes au understanding of thp construction of the machine. leu they have finished one *ia- chiiie they are assigned tt> another and so on throughout the course. Ab»o the students have practice with windmills of different power. Water is provided for from beneath which enables one to see the exact power of pumping water, as if the mill was placed on a farm. When one finishes the farm machinery cohrse he has a fair knowledge of the average machines used on the modern equipped farm Purdee has been sending out a seed corn special train over Indiana lately. The object is to bring dir ectly before the farmers’ notice the results of experiment station work, thereby henefitting a class of people which take little interest in pub lished bulletins. The train stops at scheduled stations along the way and short lectures are delivered by experts upon the selection of seed corn, etc. This method of instrnc-, tion has proven to be very efficient in the northern states and should be taken np ia tlie southland. ii'lj it liji T ■ T J-Mj CALDWELL Hh HALL KW yam, TEX.
