SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1940- THE BATTALION -Page 5 We Need It. Tradition or common sense? Thursday night at College Night, there was a crowd of some 7,500 people present. This crowd extend ed nearly to the Assembly Hall on one side and out past the bugle stand on the other. All of this mounts up to the cold fact that the YMCA steps are no longer large enough to provide adequate accomodations for the thousands who will attend yell practice this year. If yell practice is to survive, a new location will have to be pro vided. That statement was proven Thursday night. Texas A. & M. changes and ex pands from year to year. As a natural result of this expansion, the school and its facilities must expand. A suggestion was made recently by Chief yell leader Buster Keeton that would offer a solution to the situation. Buster would have the Senior class note to the corps a permanent structure which could be used for all corps meetings as •well as yell practice. This structure would be located on the east side of (juion Hall, af fording a convenient spot for both sides of the campus. It would be well lighted in addition to the use of the public address system in Guion Hall. This new site must be the Aggies’ own. Above all, it must retain all of the tradition acquired by the Y steps during its many years of service. This new movement deserves thought and participation upon the part of every Aggie. Think it over. Tradition or common sense? United States farmers have enough grains in 1940, to produce 78 pounds of pork for every one of the 132,000,000 people in the nation or 14 pounds more than each person at in 1939. Farm purchases of food in the United States are estimated to amount to over $1,100,000,000 per year.

Chem. Department— (Continued from page 1) Dr. D. W. Harris, who did re search work this summer on how to separate cottonseed oil from the seed extraction rather than by the old method of pressing, will be included in the new department. Dr. Lindsay, Dr. Harris, and Pro fessor Bishop will teach the chem ical engineering courses during the 1940-41 session. Stoichiometry, unit operations, process chemistry, designs, and seminar work will be offered this term. These courses will cover all phases of the application of phys ics, chemistry, and mathmatics to industrial processes. Complete lab oratories are being outfitted; and these include a machine shop, a unit operations laboratory, crush ing machine laboratory, and stock rooms and tables. A library is be ing established, and classrooms will probably be shared with the petroleum engineers. The A. & M. Department of Chemical Engineering has in the past been adjudged to be on par with the best in the country as far as under-graduate work is con cerned and will continue to be im proved as funds are made avail able. Ashton- (Continued from page 1) the position he now holds. He has been granted a year’s leave of ab sence to accept the Nicaraguan professorship and is expected to return to the college in Septem ber, 1941. During World War I, he served for over four years with the Al lied military forces overseas and received decorations from Great Britain and France for his work as a military interpreter during the war and on the Rhine follow ing the Armistice. He also has re ceived the Order of the Crown of Belguim for his writings on Bel gian agriculture and Merite Agri cole (France) for similar writings in that country. He has been listed in “Who’s Who in America” since 1922. Razorbacks— (Continued from page 2) through graduation, and with Eakin went the immediate hopes of the Ozark school. The backfied may not have the right combination for much suc cess this year, but the end posi tions are strong and talented. Reg ulars for the end jobs are Co- Capt. Howard Hickey, 6 foot, 2 inch, 195 pound senior from Clarksville, Arkansas, and Mau rice Britt, 6 foot 3 incch, 195 pound senior from Lonoke. Rated close behind is the tallest man on the club, 216-pound John Freiberger, from Point, Texas, who towers at a height of 6 feet 8 inches. His running mate is O’Neil Adams, 6 foot 3 inch, 195 pound Junior from Beebe, Arkansas. Even this im posing list does not finish Thom sen’s wingmen, for according to him, the best pass-receiver in his coaching career, including the fam ous Jim Benten, is on the club in the person of Bill Southerland, a 6 foot 3 inch, 180 pound Senior from Texarkana. Tackle spots are well-filled by Jan Carter and Jeff Coates, a pair of linemen that will be back at work with their rugged play. Car ter stands 6 feet 4 inches and weighs 225 pounds. Coates is an even 6 feet and tips the scales at 204 pounds. Filling out the rest of the line will be Co-Captain A. J. Yates, 187 pound senior from Bentonville, who is expected to hold down the left guard berth, and he is teaming with Milton Simington at right guard, a 225 pound senior who is headed for real recognition in the coming gridiron clashes. Daryl Cato, a 195 pound junior from Lonoke who is much the better for his experience last year, will take over the center position in fine shape. Arkansas is a club that is seem ingly building for next year, and although they should be strong on the defense, their offense is, ac cording to Thomsen, woefully weak. The football fans from the Ozark state are counting on a bunch of sophomores to come through with some sort of an at tack to counteract the power of their mighty opponents for 1940. With 1940 feed supplies, and with pastures improved by conser vation farming, farmers could pro vide every person in the nation with 45 quarts more milk and cream and 81 pounds more cheese, butter, ice cream and other man ufactured dairy products than each person at in 1939.

Budd Manufacturing Company as head of time study engineering in the stainless steel division where 1500 workmen were employed. He was in charge of setting piece work rates and was accountable for the earning of the men and for all labor costs in construction, of zephyr trains, naval construc tion, motor freight trailer units, and other miscellaneous heavy manufactured articles of the stain less steel. While attending school here Neff received his training in the Cavalry Reserves. The courses that are offered in industrial engineering are new courses or courses which have been revised to 1940. A new method of instruction will be introduced to some extent in all courses. This will require the student to write reports on his own analysis of actual situations taken from industry. Assisting Neff as instructor will be K. M. Loughmiller, who receiv ed a B. S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from Purdue in 1935 and has been an instructor at A. & M. since 1939. Loughmiller has spent a number of years in in dustrial engineering in various mass production industries. The industrial engineering de partment has taken over the in struction of two courses which have been previously in the mec hanical engineering department. The basic course is offered both semesters, and is a required course for all mechanical engineering students. The other course is train ing in Time Study engineering. It is a highly specialized course in determining production allow ances by use of the stop watch. Among the courses being offer ed for the first time is Industrial Case Analyzation which is intend ed for engineering administration students or those taking fifth year curricula. The course covers the analyzation of industrial sutua- tions. A practice course which takes the student through the routine work of an industrial engineer in lining up for the manufacturing of any industrial article is being offered for those who desire prac tical work. A course covering Accounting, Statastics, Finance, and Marketing is being offered for fifth year students and for industrial stud ents and for industrial engineers who have been practicing and find themselves short of essential train ing. All of the fifth year work and part of the fourth year work will consist of a study of analyses of actual situations taken from in dustry. In addition to attacking management problems taken from actual industrial conditions a stud ent will be required to decide what objective he seeks to attain in in dustry, and will be started upon a course designed to reach his ob jective. WELCOME AGGIES! We have a Special on Genuine E-TEX GAS - liy 2 0 GaL SOUTH SIDE Service Station Highway 6, South of Y in Bryan Town Hall Reserve Seat Tickets To Be On Sale Tuesday A most unusual occurrence, and certainly one that speaks well for Town Hall, was the fact that during registration Wednesday and Thurs day upperclassmen bought many more Town Hall tickets ,than did the freshmen. This fact speaks well for the outstanding Town Hall pro gram this year and indicates that the senior class’s determination to support Town Hall to the fullest extent has had decided results. Just before the paper went to press Friday night, it was announc ed by Paul Haines, student manag er, that Friday’s ticket sales had already put total sales far above last year’s record. For those who did not get a chance to secure tickets during registration, it was Bag-gett Announces Deadlines For Class Pictures In Longhorn Rapidly organizing his section of the Longhorn devoted to the class pictures, Ele Baggett an nounces the deadlines for these pictures to be made. They are to be posed for in number one uniform at the Aggieland Studio on or be fore the dates listed: Infantry seniors from Septem ber 30 through October 5. Field Artillery seniors from October 7 through October 12. Non-military seniors are also in cluded in this group. Coast Artillery, Signal Corps and Chemical Warfare seniors from October 14 through October 19. Engineer and Cavalry seniors from October 21 through October 26.

In regard to the many inquiries concerning reserved seats for the Town Hall programs, it was learn ed that reserve seat tickets would go on sale Tuesday morning at the Y. M. C. A. and at the same time in Bryan they will be at Wal drop’s. With the Marine Band perform ance only a short time off there have been many inquiries as to the type of program that they will of fer. In a recent letter it was stated by the Marine Band director, Capt. Wm. F. Santelman, that a special program had been arranged pri marily for A. & M., and that the type of music that all would en joy will predominate.
