A & M’s Veterinary Medicine School is Largest on Continent School Is Only One of Its Kind In the Southwest A Battalion Feature Largest of North America’s 12 schools of veterinary medicine is that of Texas A. & M. The only school of its kind in the southwest, a current enroll ment of 376 students from 34 states and nations, and a contribut ing factor in national defense, the school is headed by Dean R. P. Marsteller, graduate of Ohio State University and the University of Michigan. Today, as in the past world war, veterinary medicine is of prime im portance to the various branches of the armed service. A unit of the Surgeon General’s division of the Army, the work of the Veterinary Corps today in cludes the inspection of meats and dairy products, laboratory work and general animal activity both in war and in peace time. Previous to 1938, graduates from the nation’s schools of veterinary medicine were commissioned as first lieutenants in the Medical Ad ministrative Reserve Corps. Although this is no longer the case, many of A. & M.’s graduates become reserve officers through the channel of advanced military science. Since the A. & M. school of vet erinary medicine was organized in 1916 by the famed Dr. .Mark Fran cis, 240 men have graduated from the school, 73 will graduate this June and, of that number, more than 200 have reserve commissions. Outstanding in the school’s work —aside from the education of slang-phrased “boss doctors”—is the vast service to Texas stock- men and horse breeders. The college’s veterinary clinic handles more than 7,000 cases a year treating livestock and small animals. Although the principal purpose here is to provide actual cases for classroom demonstration, this also acts as an important ser vice for statewide assistance to diseased farm animals including poultry. “In this way,” Dr. Marsteller pointed out, “A. & M.’s school of veterinary medicine has an oppor tunity to assist in the improvement of public health.” “ In the field of research, too, the' school is an important factor. Greatest contribution in this field was Dr. Francis’ development of a method to immunize cattle from tick fever by innoculation. One west Texas cattleman put it this way: “Dr. Francis’ work in solving the tick fever problem was the greatest single factor in sav ing the Texas livestock industry.” Six departments make up the school, including veterinary anato my, hygiene, medicine and sur gery, parasitology, pathology and bacteriology, and physiology and pharmacology. Leading to the degree of Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (D.V.M.), the five-year course consists of a year of preparatory work and four years of veterinary study. The so-called “society trade,” consisting of the pet animal trade, although one of the most lucrative branches of the veterinary prac tice, is actually only a small part of the trade’s service to the state and nation. A. & M. graduates in veterinary College Veterinary Clinic Treats 7,000 Sick Animals Yearly medicine begin work in such widely varying fields as meat, milk and food inspection—an important fac tor in public health; research work; commercial production of curative and preventative biologies; service in the Veterinary Corps of the Army; work in and for boards of public health, state and federal bu reaus of animal industry and med ical centers; and foundation train ing for other fields of biology. During recent years the A. & M. veterinary medicine school has in vestigated and diagnosed the dis eases of wild life and particularly those of game animals, birds and fish. The economic significance of the sport and the industry associated with the field of wild game and fish is tremendous. Millions of dol lars are spent each year for the sports of hunting and fishing.
