Air Corps Wants 10 Percent of A&i Military Graduates as Pilots Approximately fifty A. & M. seniors who are graduating in June with the reserve officers commis sions will be able to transfer to the Air Corps Reserve as second lieutenants according to a letter received by the Commandant’s Of fice from the War Department. The Air Corps is in need of of ficers for duties in connection with supply procurement and is par ticularly interested in those grad uates who have majored in aero nautical engineering, mechanical engineering and business admin istration. The students who have already received their commissions or are planning to receive commissions may, upon acceptance, apply for transfer to the Air Corps Reserve. These applications must have the recommendation of the student’s senior instructor and will be ac cepted between May 1 and May 15. With approval of the Chief of the Air Corps these students will be transfered to the Air Corps Re serve as second lieutenants without certificates of capacity. All applications must give the student’s name and arm of service, the course in which his degree is to be awarded, his major and mi nor subjects and have the recom mendation of his senior instructor. The following are excerpts from the War Department’s letter to the Commandant’s Office: “Corps Area and Department Commanders are authorized to Profs Take Civil Service Exams With Pupils Students and professors were on equal terms at examination time when seven members of the staff of the Department of Agronomy took the Civil Service examina tions for Junior Professional As sistant along with the seniors ma joring in agronomy given in Bryan last month. Since a great many students taking agronomy courses are in terested in qualifying for govern mental positions under the Civil Service, much emphasis is placed on training students for thjs ex amination. The Department of Agronomy is charged with supervising this Civil Service work and training men for certain of these examinations dealing with the various phases of agronomy. Therefore, it seem ed quite natural that the staff of the Department of Agronomy should keep in touch with these examinations and take as many as possible. First, if the staff members ac tually take the examinations they are much better prepared to give students in their classes the type of training that these examinations call for. Second, there is an occa sional opportunity for the profes sors to improve their positions by actually taking appointments un der the Civil Service in some of the professional positions. It is regarded as even more val uable to have staff members hold such technical positions for a year, after which they come back and resume their teaching with a much more varied background and a wealth of experience. For a number of years Texas A. & M. has rated high in the to tal number of men who have qual ified for this type of employment. recommend annually the appoint ment as second lieutenants in the Air Corps Reserve, non-rated, of not to exceed ten per centum (10%) of the prospective Reserve Officers Training Corps graduates who have qualified for commis sions in some other section. It is desired if possible to obtain 800 to 1,000 Reserve officers annually from this source. “ . . . Preference will be given graduates of aeronautical engi neering, mechanical engineering and business administration.” -SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 1941 General Election— (Continued from Page 1) The annual political yell prac tice will be held Monday night following supper on the steps of the YMCA.

Norton Charles Babcock Rare Cheese Sale And Exhibit to be Dairy Show Feature A cheese exhibit and sale which will feature unusual and foreign varieties of cheeses will be an add ed attraction of the Spring Dairy Show which will constitute a part of Ag Day, scheduled for May 3, A. V. Moore, professor in the dairy husbandry department, said Wed nesday. “The Kream and Kow Klub is sponsoring the sale of these cheeses,” Moore said, “because it will give an opportunity of pro curing varieties of cheeses not us ually on sale locally.” A wide selection of domestic cheese such as American Cheedar, Brick and Coon shelf cured (smok ed) will be on hand to supply such demand. Among the rarer cheeses will be Chantelle, similar to the Port du Salut of France, not now available, having a full rich flavor and semi- soft body; Gouda, domestic Dutch cheese, sweeter and milder than American Cheddar, and Gjetost, a sweet goat milk cheese. Also listed are Leyden, Nokkelost, Gruyere, Camembert, Sap Sago, and Reg- iano varieties of cheeses. The exhibit and sale will be held in a special display room in the south end of the main dairy barn. Leadership Course— (Continued from Page 1) Benson, who helped establish 4-H Club work in the United States, will give intensive instruction to persons interested in rural youtn groups such as 4-H Clubs, Future Farmer chapters, rural Boy Scout troops and F.S.A. groups.

Brown, di rector of the playgrounds of the Chicago Park Board. Mr. Brown will give attention to recreational problems and leisure time activi ties for employed and unemployed youth. Teachers and recreational workers for governmental and pri vate organizations such as the NYA, WPA, YMCA, and YWCA, are expected to be particularly in terested in the June 23-28 pro gram.
