department has a building of its
own (1912) which includes much
electrical equipment. The Civil En
gineering Building (1900), which
contains the oldest engineering de
partment of the college is thor
oughly equipped for every branch
of the civil engineering profession

The School of Agriculture is
equipped with a physical plant val

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),

giving a benefit show. 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
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.
The department of Veterinary
Medicine is equipped with a mod

fully equipped to handle all types
of cases. Classrooms and labora
tories are provided for this de
partment in the hospital.
The Y. M. C. A. has a reading
and writing room and a parlor
where various club meetings are
held and in addition, fine recrea
tion rooms with bowling alleys,
billiard tables, and ping pong
tables. The new dormitory is also
provided with a separate Y. M. C.

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
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

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.
