The School of Agriculture is equipped with a physical plant val ued at more than a million and one quarter dollars. A few of the more recently constructed buildings are the Agriculture Building (1922), which includes administra tive offices, classrooms, and lab oratories for the study of all sub jects relating to agriculture; the Animal Husbandry Paviling (1916), which contains a large judging arena surrounded by concrete seats for 1,600 spectators, besides class rooms and offices; the Animal In dustries building (1933) which pro vides offices, classrooms, and lab oratories for the use of students in this department; the Agricul tural Engineering building (1933) which provides equipment and fa cilities needed in the training of Agricultural Engineers; the Col lege Creamery (1923), which con tains the dairy laboratories and creamery, is equipped for the man ufacture and distribution of ice cream, cheese, and market milk; and the dairy barns (1916) which provide facilities for the handling of various classes of livestock.

This fund will grow larger and more useful to Aggies as it grows older, but 1941 was its initial year. Through all its trials and ef forts, the year of ’41 has been eventful, to say the least. No ar ticle, no matter of what length, could adequately describe the prog ress made by Aggies during the year, the new friendships formed, or the value to the school. But it will be remembered by all who were here as a year of events and a year well worthy of cherished memories. 3,500, a swimming pool which will accommodate 600 spectators, and an auxiliary gymnasium for use chiefly in intramural activities. There are fourteen tennis courts, both clay and concrete; baseball diamonds, and fields for football and speedball. The intramural sports department has facilities so that all students may partici pate in the intramural program.

Music at A. & M.— (Continued from page 5) to furnish music for various oc casions. The membership is made up of students who like to sing and enjoy the fellowship which singing affords and who have de cided to make the Singing Cadets one of their chief extra-curricula activities. Consisting of 107 members, the Cadets sing at banquets, college assemblies, religious services, and for special programs of all kinds. Unlike the band, which gives no credit in music, the Cadets receive one hour’s credit each semester for their work. Very successful concert tours to South and East Texas were taken by the Cadets thi s spring. Feature of the year’s work for the organization was it’s command performance for Town Hall given at popular request. Students with vocal talent who enjoy singing are extended an in vitation to try-out with the Cadets at the beginning of the school year. For those whose music interest runs along popular lines there’s the Aggieland Orchestra, the school’s own popular dance band. Composed entirely of Aggies, the special dances during the spring band plays for football and corps dances in the fall and for club and social season. It plays for the annual Cotton Ball and Style Show, one of the biggest events of the entire year, Employment for 69— (Continued from page 6) tion Engines, and an Engineering Drawing course. Each of these courses averages around fifteen men enrollment. In this program the college is offering an opportunity to anyone interested in obtaining training in one of the many phases of engi neering, all of which are short of men in the present emergency. No tuition is required in order to take any of the courses, and the only expense attached is room, board and the necessary text books. The twelve weeks required to cover the courses is one full of hard work for the men taking them, in that they go eight hours a day, six days a week and in some cases they even attend night class es. After they have finished they receive a certificate that is equiva lent to one year of experience in the Civil Service. Smoker For Seniors Who Get Commissions Senior R.O.T.C. cadets who will receive their commissions as sec ond lieutenants in the reserve corps upon graduation this spring will be guests at a smoker to be given by the Brazos County chap ter of the Reserve Officers Asso ciation at 7 p. m., May 21, in Sbisa Hall. The Texas State de partment of the R.O.A. will co operate with the Brazos County chapter. Colonel C. L. Mitchell, chief of staff, first military area, San An tonio will be the guest speaker. He will be accompanied by mem bers of his staff from each of the various branches of services. Of ficers of the Texas R.O.A. will also be present at the meeting.

Eddie Fitzpatrick played for the Cavalry when they had their regi mental ball, and the Infantry had Duke Ellington. Ellington also played for the Town Hall program which each year features some popular orchestra which comes here. Playing without music, El lington’s boys put on a talented and entertaining program. The Ross Volunteer dances, which come for three days during spring holidays, had Phil Levant play for their Queen’s Ball, Captain’s Ball, and dinner dance. The sophomore and freshman classes had their dances as part of the social season. A Barnyard Fro lic, Cattlemen’s Ball, Cotton Pag eant and Ball and numerous corps dances have all had their part in the years events which will end in June with Final Ball and Final Re view. as well as for numerous spring corps dances. Each Christmas the band goes on a two weeks tour of Texas cities playing for Christmas dances. The spring semester is punctuated with week end trips to festivals and dance engagements. The orchestra takes on several new men at the beginning of each year and try-outs are conducted by the leader at that time.

They will also show chemical reactions and the manufacture of synthetic materials, showing the uses of chemistry in national de fense. The petroleum engineering de partment will demonstrate re search methods and field displays showing actual pumping and drill ing of oil wells. The exhibits are presented and explained in a non technical manner so that laymen may understand the principles in volved. All of the exhibits and demon strations will be explained by stu dents of the departments, and students had a large part in set ting up and planning the exhibits. The seven cadets who have been placed in charge of the exhibits of their departments are: LaVere Brooks, architectural engineering; J. R. Nalley, mechanical engineer ing, Ed Ivey, chemical engineering, W. A. Collins, aeronautical engi neering, Ben Elliot, petroleum en gineering, F. K. Nichols, electrical engineering, and G. K. Carnes, civil engineering. GREETINGS! HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES We want to congratu late yqu upon your grad uation from high school. We hope to see you at Texas A. & M. College next fall.
