J.C PENNEY CO “Aggie Economy Center” Bryan, Texas THE BATTALION -TUESDAY, APRIL 8, 1941 A&M Architect Plans "House of the Month" SELECTED AS “House of the ^ Month” at President Roosevelt’s Conference on Home Ownership, the above plan was designed by Ernest Langford, head of the A. & M. department of architecture. It was recommended by the U. S. Department of Agriculture for either city or country residence, and it is planned to appeal no only to the prospective owner of a low- cost private home but also to the developer planning to build in quantity to fill defense housing needs. Both for beauty and to insure long life, the use of pure white lead paint is recommended for the original coat and for painting in future years. The old reliable paint, approved by government experts, is outstanding in its durability and keeps an even surface throughout its long lifetime at a minimum maintenance cost. The bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms have cross ventila tion. An insulated stove in the k-ru ^ Ft kitchen, together with mechanical ventilation, will keep this room comfortable in hot weather. And in sulation under the room in the first floor ceiling will keep the whole house comfortable and will save fuel cost in winter. The floor plan layout is about ideal. A hall gives access to every room in the house except the dining room. The living room, din ing room and kitchen are well re lated to one another, and the re lation holds for the bedrooms and bathrooms. Large windows pro vide plenty of light and air. The screened porch suggests many con venient uses. Complete building plans are be ing made available by the U. S. Department of Agriculture for the price of $1. Included with the plans is a cardboard cut-out model of the house architecturally drawn to scale. The model can be colored to enable the builder to visualize exactly what the completed house will look like.

This class, in the department of horti culture, is being conducted by Rob ert F. Cain, a graduate of Texas Technological college, who spent his first two years in college at A. & M. The first vegetable to be process ed and frozen by the new method is broccoli. Various container man ufacturers have been contacted and samples of their merchandise have been assembled, and are being test ed. The method now being used is expected to improve the quality and condition of the vegetable to such an extent that housewives will prefer it to the so-called “fresh” product available at gro cery stores and vegetable displays, because all of the freshness is re tained in the quick-freezing pro cess. Step by step the process as it is now being. used is to blanch the fresh-picked broccoli in live steam or boiling water for from three to five minutes, according to the con dition of the vegetable. The stems are trimmed in two to three-inch lengths for firm packing in the container. Hard stalks are discard ed before processing. After the steaming or boiling the vegetable is rinsed in cold water, allowed to drain and packed in the containers while still moist, and frozen as quickly as possible. The freezing is being done at the animal husbandry department freezer locker plant. The contain er is first placed in a vault with a tempertaure of 15 degrees Fahrenheit until frozen. It then is placed in zero temperature vaults for storage until use. Later in the course the students will use asparagus, cauliflower, peas, beans, spinach, blackberries and peaches. The public is invited to witness the process and ask questions about the findings of the students. the association, presiding. Dean H. B. Weiser, of Rice, will deliver the address of welcome and J. W. Kidd, Texas College of Mines and Metallurgy, association chairman, will give the response. Other speak ers on the banquet program in clude: D. B. Prentice, president, S.P.E.E., Rose Polytechnic Insti tute; and H. E. Slaymaker, British Consul at Houston.
