Out-of-School Men May Learn National Defense Trades at A. & M. The A. & M. mechanical engi-. neering department, in cooperation with the state department of in dustrial education, will offer a special course in machine shop for young men who want to prepare themselves for jobs in national de fense industries. The federal government, through the industrial education services of the states, has made available funds for training out-of-school youth for occupations in industries which have contracts for national defense materials. The A. & M. mechanical engineering department has one of the largest and most complete machine shops of any school in the south for training men for industry and has offered its services. The federal govern ment will pay the complete cost of the training and has specified re quirements for those who enroll. This particular class will be for any young men who are not now in school who have reached the age of 17 but not the age of 25. They must have completed the com mon schools and should have had some high school work. They must be mentally able to learn the com putations, calculations, and blue print reading required in a machine shop and physically able to do the work. Any young man interested in learning this work should register at once with the Texas State Em ployment Service in the new Eagle Printing Company Building at 120 East 26th Street, Bryan, Texas. It will be the responsibility of this office to try to find employment for the young men as soon as they are employable. The class will start as soon as 25 qualified young men have regis tered. It will run from 3 to 10 p. m., five days each week until July 1, 1941. Harvard university is raising $2,000 for 12 special “war libra ries” to be distributed around the university.
