($23 a month), the work is hard,
and like all other jobs, there are
five applicants for every one of
the 183 student janitor jobs.
Largest employer of cadets is
the tremendous A. & M. mess hall
system, the largest single-unit
feeding establishment in the world.
Two hundred and sixty-four stu
dents are employed in the two mess
hall at an average salary of slightly
more than $18 a month. Most of
these men are waiters, an easier
job than most and one which takes
comparatively little time—conse
quently a job is much in demand.
Key factor in maintaining the
college’s high student employment
program is the federal govern
ment’s annual National Youth Ad
ministration appropriation. Since
1935, when N. Y. A. appropriations
were first made, more than $350,-
000 of federal money has been spent
at A. & M. to give students part-
time employment.
Only Texas University receives
a larger annual appropriation than
ing the 1939-40 long session, $71,-

895 was given the college in the
form of N. Y. A. funds. This ses
sion the figure has upped to $73,-
305. N. Y. A. appropriations to the
entire collegiate world last year
totaled $14,039,268.
Second division of A. & M.’s stu.
dent employment, and larger than
the N. Y. A. division, is the de
partmental division. This year the
college’s 54 departments will pay
1002 students approximately $150,-
000 to do half a hundred jobs.
Third, and least of the three di
visions of the college’s student em
ployment, is the concession field.
Concessions include the sale of
radios, shower shoes, stationery,
candy and 25 commodities to the
student body. These concessions pay
from $25 to $400 a year, depending
on the demand for the particular
article and the business ability of
the concessioner.
Basis for giving student jobs at
A. & M. is a three-fold plan. Prime
consideration is a student’s need
for a job in order to remain in
college. Then comes his scholastic
standing and, finally, where pos
sible cadets are given jobs which
parallel their professional course
of study.
Unique in American colleges and
universities is the A. & M. wage
theory. Student employment offi
cials frankly admit that they are
not interested in trying to help a
cadet earn all of his college ex
penses. Their main concern is the
student who has earned as much
as a hundred dollars through sum
mer labor (or whose parents can
afford to furnish that amount of
money), but who is unable to ob
tain a college education through his
inability to obtain the remainder
of his college expenses. “By help
ing these men,” Horsley said, “we
are able to aid more men than we
would otherwise find possible. In
this way we can spread our money
over a greater number of students
and thus be responsible for an al
most 40 per cent increase in the
number of students able to secure
a college education at A. & M. than
if we were primarily interested in
helping fewer students earn all of
their college expenses.”
Many cadets manufacture furni
ture and metal appliances which
they sell through local markets.
One cadet has invented a drawing
table which he sells to student
architects and which has proved
successful enough to interest com
mercial manufacturers.
“The greatest need in student
labor today,” Horsley pointed out,
“is some sort of aid to returning-
graduates who are more than 25
years of age. In most cases these
men have given up reasonably good
jobs to return to college in order
to broaden themselves and better
fit themseves for their jobs. Gen
erally, however, aid is denied these
men and even N. Y. A. appropria
tions cannot be extended to stu
dents over 24 years of age.”
The direct contribution of A. &
M.’s student employment program
to the nation’s current national de
fense program is particularly sig
nificant. More than 90 per cent of
the student employees are enroll
ed in the Reserve Officers Train
ing corps. Fifteen per cent are
cadet officers and will be commis
sioned as reserve officers in the
United States Army upon gradua
tion. Ninety per cent of these men
would have been unable to attend
A. & M. without part-time employ

“A portrait of all womankind,”

“The Women,” America’s nine
teenth most popular play—accord
ing to the length of its run—was
presented by the College Little
Theater Wednesday and Thursday
It has had 653 productions and
has made a great hit throughout
America with the women, who has
ten to add, “but not all women are
like that!” It has been said of this
play that every woman can find
something in it that applies to
herself, and the shoe pinches quite
uncomfortably. And why should
TSCW be excepted?
Aggies Are Headlines
Whether it’s of any consequence
or not, out of the ten events that
were chosen as the biggest Lass-0
headlines of 1940, three of them
hinged on Aggieland. January’s
first issue in 1940 told the student
body of the selection of their fa
vorite Southwest Conference foot
ball star, Joe Boyd of A. & M. But
the headline only began the story
—TSCW lost her heart en masse
when the tall, broad-shouldered
blonde walked upon the auditorium
stage to claim his gift.
Another new twist to the fem
inine angle and Aggie chivalry
was added to the Lass-0 news in
April. TSCW’S rifle team, headed
by Luella McManus, shot an invi
tation match at A. & M. and
brought home a victory and three
medals—their initial and probably
their most glorious.
Five Aggies, the cream of the
College Station crop, took TSCW
by storm the week before the corps
trip and chose attractive, blue-eyed
Mary Margaret McCarthy as their
sweetheart. The corps trip with
A. & M. is a headliner every year,
but the victory and the then un
beaten Aggie eleven was nectar
of ambrosia—a climax to an al
ready perfect weekend.

Robertson Elected
Miss Elizabeth Robertson, as
sistant in publicity department, di
rector of Austin Hall, and the pres
ident of the student body in 1938-
39, was elected president of the
National Student Federation of
America at their annual meeting
at New Jersey College for Women
Dec. 27-31.
One of the oldest and most con
servative of student organizations,
NSFA delegates voted to withdraw
from the American Youth Congress
on the charge that its influence is
mostly radical. Five TSCW dele
gates were sent to the convention
besides Miss Robertson. They were
Violet Beville, vice president of
the student body, Sara Tray, sec
retary of the student body, Naomi
Boutwell, president of the student
body, Margaret Green, representa
