Aggietone— (Continued from page 1) (Continued from page 1) first of the year,” he added. “We are particularly anxious,” Fuermann concluded, “to impress on the corps the fact that it should not expect the first edition of Ag- gietone News to be flawless. The staff has done the best work in its power and we are sincerely anx ious to receive any and all criti cism which the corps may have to offer following the first showing.” To concern Aggie aetivites on and off the campus, the first edit ion of Aggietone News will include pictures of the Aggie-A. & I. game, the San Antonio corps trip, regis tration, College Night, intramural games, and general scenes around the campus. Aggietone News is financed by Ben S. Ferguson, Dallas and College Station theatre man who is owner of the Campus Theatre. Special equipment has been pur chased which will show Aggietone News on the screen similar to reg ular newsreels. Fuermann said that the screen-size of the news reel would be the same as other screen- sizes, and, in respect to reproduc tion on the screen, it would be the near-equal of feature length pic tures.

Bryan Kyle, Alexander Write High School Textbook About Agriculture A new textbook on agriculture for high school students titled “Ag riculture In the Southwest”, writ ten • by E. J. Kyle, dean of the school of agriculture, Texas A. & M. college, and Prof. E. R. Alex ander, head of the A. & M. depart ment of agricultural education, will come before the Text Book Com mission for approval at its October meeting, Dean Kyle has been ad vised. The book has been prepared in response to requests for such a textbook by teachers of vocational agriculture, county agricultural ag ents, soil conservation service of ficers and others dealing with farm families. Members of the Texas A. & M. college system who are recognized •authorities in their fields have written the chapters of the book dealing with the phase of agri culture in which they are outstand ing. A total of 19 such men con tributed to the book which was finally edited by W. R. Sherrill, assistant professor of agricultural education at the college. Those men cooperating in the preparation of the book and the chapter which they have written include: Henry Ross, “The Agri cultural Situation”; R. L. Hunt, “Planning the Farm Business’; W. E. Paulson, “Marketing Farm Com modities”; L. G. Jones, “Soil Con servation”; D. T. Killough and J. S. Mogford, “Cotton”; P. C. Man- gelsdorf, “Com”; R. E. Karper, “The Sorghums”; R. C. Potts, “Small Grains and Forage Crops and Pastures”; Fred Brison, “Veg etable Growing”; Guy W. Adriance, “Fruit Growing”; N. G. Schuessler, “Beef Cattle Production”; C. N. Shepardson, “Dairying”; A. K. Mackey, “Sheep and Angora Goats”; Fred Hale, “Hog Produc tion”; D. H. Reid, “Poultry”; D. W. Williams, “Horses and Mules”; Fred Jones, “Farm Power and Me chanical Equipment”; and Walter P. Taylor, “Wild Life as a Farm By-Product”. Rip Snortin' Rodeo Promised Bronc Busters Come on you so called Texas Aggie Cowboys. Here’s your chance again to get a share of the Texas Aggie” Rodeo purse when on Oct ober 18, one of the biggest shows of its kind in the southwest will get underway. Entries will be taken Wednesday night October 9 in the Animal In dustries lecture room and every student who can rope, ride or bull dog is invited to attend. The entry fees will probably be the same as last year although there may be a slight change. With “Shorty” Fuller directing the Show and Johnny Harclin hand ling the advertising, the rodeo promises to be one of the high lights of the year. Others select ed to handle various events are Jake Hess in charge of calf rop ing, Travis Richardson, Steer rid ing, W. L. Pendleton, bareback bronc riding, and Jack Cleveland, Bill Hampton and Bill Ward in charge of building pens and chutes. Tommy Stewart is handling the. programs while Victor Loeffler is taking charge of the tickets. Any Aggie who thinks that he can hang on to a bareback buck in’ bronc is invited to enter or throw a Brahma calf is invited to enter. Sleeping Sickness In Horses And Mules Found Recently In Brazos County Sleeping sickness in horses and mules which has been found in North Texas is now making its way South and has made its ap pearance in the vicinity of Brazos county, Dr. A. A. Lenert, head of the department of veterinary med icine and surgery at Texas A. & M. College said Friday. We have had approximately 20 cases of the disease recently and they all came from nearby Edge, Kurten, Normangee and Madison- ville,” he said. “We do not keep the animals in the hospital here but simply give them treatment and prescribe the nursing to be follow ed at home”. He explained that while the dis ease is infectious it is not con tagious and can be prevented by innoculation done by a veterinar ian. After the animal takes the dis ease early treatment may save it but in many cases it dies due to delayed treatment, he added, in advising preventative treatment. “The animal may stand up alone for five or six days with the dis ease and still be cured but once it gets down the chance of recovery is very small,” he explained. THE BATTALION ■TUESDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1940 Team Entrains For California Late This Evening (Continued from page 1) is expected to be a thriller from the start to the finish. The two gie second-stringers for a touch- teams will send many stars in to the fray, and the turf should hold the tread of scintillating runs and blasting power drives after the final gun. The pick of the Southwest sports writers will accompany the Aggies on the trip. From Houston will come Dick Freeman and Bruce Layer; Dallas will send Charles Burton; from Waco will come the indominitable “Jinx” Tucker; and the Aggies own newspaper, the Battalion, will send their sports Editor, H. O. “Hub” Johnson, and Photographer Phil Golman. Aggietone News, the A. & M. newsreel, will be covering the game to bring back a filmed descrip tion of the clash. The Aggies, in their conflict with the Uclans, will be going after the third win of the season, and na tionwide predictions are inclined to believe that either club will have to play championship football for any kind of a victory. Inter-Church Council Meets For Organization The new-born Inter-Church Council of Texas A. & M. held its first meeting for organization in the parlor of the Y.M.C.A. with an attendance of 18 members. Frank Loving, senior student in the hand, the originator of the idea and the chairman of the group, was in charge. Formed for the purpose of co ordinating and combining the ef forts of all the churches on the campus in one concentrated drive toward their common goals, the Council was formed under the sponsorship of the Y. M. C. A. and selected as the faculty advisor, Al fred C. Payne, newly appointed secretary in the Y. M. C. A. Those who attended the meeting include the following: Harold Ramsden and W. A. Collins of the Presbyterian Church; L. J. Smith and Morris Lichenstein of the Hil- lel Club; J. T. Duree and Clayton Collins of the Methodist church; Charles Baker and H. B. Spring- field of the Church of Christ; Le roy Brown and Doc Watley of the Baptist church; Lynn Maxwell and Clyde Morgan of the Episcopalian church; Ralphh Mulvey and Curly Provost of the Catholic church; Donald Burrus of the Christian Science. Kyle Field— (Continued form Page 3) times lack the final bit of oomph to finish the evening in good shape. After the season they’ll expect a bit more of the regular routines. This favor will be greatly ap preciated by all concerned. There is a big question on the top of our note book. That is how Mr. Williamson can rate the Ag gies in No. 2 place for this week’s poll? With a rating of 99.7, the cadets go to the show spot. South ern Methodist won two good games, one from U. C. L. A. and one from the strong little Denton Teachers who boast one of the fastest back- fields in the South. U. C. L. A. goes far down the list because of its two losses. Both were surrendered in the last period. The first in the last six minutes and the second in the last four minutes, and both 9 to 6. From San Antonio comes a few red notes and also a few black marks. Cece Hollinsworth scouting for the U. C. L. A. Bruins not only drew out all the plays used by the Aggies, but also recorded about eight records with individual char acteristics of the various players being noted . . . Joe Rothe follow ed some beautiful interference on his punt return . . . ’Bama Smith seems to love the side lines as he Corps Trip— (Continued from page 1) and the body on the field of clean sports are to be highly commend ed and furnish a fine background for good citizenship. We extend our most cordial and sincere good wishes to the group from A. & M. on this occasion, and assure them that they will always receive a hearty welcome in San Antonio. Maury Maverick, Mayor Shortly after the Aggie band assembled and sent the strains of the “Aggie War Hymn” blasting down Houston street a large part of the “Twenfth Man” met before the Gunter Hotel and gave the San Antonians a preview of how Aggies can yell. No small num ber of people stood awe-struck as “Buster” Keeton, flanked by his assistants Bill Beck and Skeen Staley, hung over the railing on the Gunter Hotel and led the group in yells that seemed to rock the buildings. For the benefit of those who lived beyond the city limits of San Antonio and could not hear the yells directly, KTSA had a broadcasting set-up to carry the noise. Then came the afternoon and the Aggies yelled, swore, sweated, and yelled some more as 20,000 people saw the Tulsa Hurricanes turned into a calm. At the half the band put on its first official per formance of the year and San Antonio’s own Betty Jameson wel comed the crowd in the new Alamo Stadium. The week end of events was only getting into full swing at the close of the victory. And when night came again the Aggies scattered to make the best of it. The San Antonio A. & M. Mothers Club furnished dates for the band boys, and the corps furnished the “bird dogs”. And on into the not-so-small hours of the morning the Aggies ruled. When and if all the boys get back there will be a unanimous decision that San Antonio is a real place for a corps trip. Draft Bill— (Continued from page 1) 3. Sec. 5 (a) Students who are “cadets of the advanced course, senior division, Reserve Officers’ Training Corps, or Naval Reserve Officres’ Training Corps, shall not be required to be registered and shall be relieved from liability for training and service” under this Act. 4. Sec. 5(e) Deferment is pro vided on the basis of dependents, physical, mental, or moral defic-* iency and for “those men whose employment in industry, agricul ture, or other occupations or em ployment, or whose activity in other endeavors is found to be necessary to the maintance of the national health, safety, or interest.” 5. Sec. 3 (a) Any person between the ages of 18 and 36 shall be af forded an opptortunity to volun teer for the period of training and service (12 months) prescribed in this ^ act. 6. Sec. 3 (a) Foreign students (male aliens) must register, but only those who have declared thier intention to become citizens are eligible for service. 7. Sec. 5 (d) “Ministers of relig ion, and students who are preparing for the ministry in theological or divinity schools . . . .shall be ex empt from training and service (but not from registration) under this act. 8. Sec. 5 (g) Any person “who, by reason of religious training belief, is conscientiously opposed to participation in war of any form” is not required, subject to tore out down the east side for a score . . . Betty Jameson returned home and made a public showing at the stadium . . . “Dookie” Pugh led the field with a 100 per cent record in converting . . .

EXPERT RADIO REPAIR WORK STUDENT CO - OP North Gate approval of his claim, to be subject to combatant service but is sub ject to either non-combatant ser vice or to “work of national im portance under civilian direction direction.” REGISTRATION The President has set October 16 as the date for registration. It will be conducted by election offic ials or such other individuals as the county clerk may appoint for each election district. The county clerk may, upon the request of a school or college, appoint a special reg istrar to conduct the registration within such institution. The stu dent may register at any conven ient place regardless of legal res idence or domicile. The county clerk will mail his registration card to the local selective service (draft) board having jurisdiction over the area which the student indicates as his place of residence. CLASSIFICATION Each student (as well as other men 21 to 36) will be assigned a number and will be subect to call for classification. Prior to receipt of call he will receive a personal data sheet, one section of which provides for recording the indi vidual’s education and includes a specific question relating to at tendance at school or college dur ing the current academic year. If the student requests deferment and if his attendance during 1940 is verified by the college, his train ing may be deferred until July 1, 1941, or until the end of the aca demic year. Although a literal in terpretation of the Act,a s worded, might exclude some students from its deferment clause, there is no reason to think that the Act will be liberally interpreted through rules and regulations now being drawn, to carry out a policy of de ferring those students whose maj or occupation is the pursuit of a program of studies leading to a degree or certificate. Local boards will have discretion in deferring students in educational institutions or in courses of study not clearly within the Act (see par. 2 above), and part-time students, who may or may not be deferred because of their course of study, or other occupation. Authority for classi fying any individual, subject to the process of appeal, lies with the local board. RESERVE OFFICERS’ TRAIN ING CORPS Some have felt that the exemp tion from registration of students in the advanced ROTC course will jeopardize colleges and univers ities without ROTC. The follow ing facts should be borne in mind: (1) The War Department does not now contemplate the establishment of additional ROTC units. (2) In establsihed ROTC units the num ber of men permitted to continue in to the advanced course is only one in four of those who take the bas ic course (84,000 in the basic Army ROTC course, 19,000 in the ad vanced). (3) The young man who received his ROTC commission will be subject to active duty for such time after graduation as the Army or Navy may then require. (4) The War Department contem plates setting up officer training facilities in selected Army camps. W. J.
