horn. A special group is devoted
to pictures of home town clubs
and mothers’ clubs. Two antiair
craft guns manned by members of
the Coast Artillery Corps here are
the subject of this section’s divi
sion page.
The Longhorn this year is a col
orful book which accurately pro
vides a resume of the year’s activ
ities at Aggieland. The many sec
tions of the Longhorn are printed
in colored inks which add much to
the beauty of the book. Editor
Morton J. Robinson has said that
this is the largest year book ever
published at A. & M.
From the first page to the last,
this year’s Longhorn promises to
be one that every Aggie will prize
as one of his most honored pos
sessions. The book is a fitting
tribute to all Aggies who have at
tended school this year and par
ticipated in Aggieland’s activities.
The 1940-41 Longhorn is Aggie
Members of the Longhorn staff
to whom all credit for this book
should go are: Morton Robinson,
editor; L. L. Kilpatrick, managing
editor; O. G. Allen, advertising
manager; Phil Golman, photograph
er; and J. P. Jones, vanity fair
assistant} Other members of the
staff are, Cecil Grissom and E.
B. Kyzar, camp section assistants;
R. L. Heitkamp, junior editor;
Harvey Lynn, J. B. Hancock, J. 0.
Alexander, junior assistants; and
A. R. Ramirez, R. B. Jones, fresh
man assistants.
National Defense is foremost in
the minds of patriotic Americans
at this time, and the Longhorn
timed its dedication perfectly to
join in with all Aggieland in dis
playing loyalty to our country.
Throughout the book are quotations
of famous Americans pertaining to
the subject of National Defense.
Indicative of this theme and ex
pressing the views of all Aggie
land are the words of Theodore
Roosevelt which form the intro
duction to the activities section:
“We have room in this country
for but one flag—the stars and
stripes. We have room but for
one loyalty—loyalty to the Unit
ed States. There can be no 50-50
Americanism. There is room here
for only 100 per cent Americanism,
only for those who are Americans
and nothing else.”

now a lieutenant, was brought to
the United States to serve at
Hampton Roads, Virginia, and
early in 1919 he was transferred
to the naval air station at Coca
Solo, Canal Zone.
On May 19, 1919, Lieutenant
Easterwood died in active duty as
the result of a seaplane accident.
His services and his sacrifices
were recognized by navy depart
ment when he was posthumously
awarded the Navy Cross in the
following citation:
“For distinguished and heroic
service as an aviator in an air
plane engaged in active operations
cooperating with the Allied armies
on the Belgium front during Sep

to be held in Sbisa Hall at six p. m.
F. M. Law, president of the Board
of Directors of the First National

has been errorless.
Jeffrey’s main contribution to
the Aggie baseball team has been
his consistent hitting and fielding.
He covers that right field like a
blanket, having been charged with
no errors. He started the big
Aggie rally against Texas last
Saturday, and then proceeded to
drive in the winning run with
a single.
In case Bumpers should have an
off day, there are still Roy Peden,
Charlie Stevens, and Bill Hender
son. Each has shown that they
are ready for any crisis, with
Peden being the first choice to re
lieve Bumpers. The rosy cheeked
Aggie twirler has been consistant
all year, and should be in trim
condition in case he is needed for
Saturday. Stevenson’s greatest
contribution for the cadets was his
“money” double with the bases
loaded in the Aggie-Texas game
last Saturday, while Henderson’s
one-hit pitching against T.C.U. a
while back earned the Houston
athlete his fourth letter at Aggie
The Aggies have to win if they
expect to get a share of the title.
A defeat for the cadets would
automatically give Texas U. the
title, while a win would put the
Aggies in a deadlock for the flag.
Ruck Speaks For
Petroleum Engineers
E. O. Buck, consulting engineer
of Houston, will speak on “Recycl
ing and Condensation Recovery
from Natural Gas” before the final
meeting of the Petroleum Engi
neering Club Thursday night. Buck
is recognized as an authority in
the Mid-Continent area.
In addition to the talk by E. 0.
Buck, there will be a business meet
ing which will include a discussion
of this year’s activities and the
election of next year’s officers.
The retiring officers are Jeff
Montgomery, president; R. P.
Dunkerly, vice president; Gerald
King, secretary; John Waddell,
treasurer; and Roy Chappell, chair
man of refreshment committee.
DeWare Fieldhouse—
(Continued from Page 3)
dent supporter of all athletic
events in which the Aggies were
figured, and was a familiar figure
at all the games, attending them
in a wheel chair.
He was an Aggie through and
through, a grand character and
never dropped his pace in his ad
miration for Athletes.
DeWare was fatally injured in
an automobile accident on April
6, 1938, and the Aggies lost a
good friend. It is fitting that his
name was kept alive in the hearts
of all Aggies by the naming of the
field house.
His son Charles DeWare, Jr.,
is now a prominent figure in Ag
gieland being freshman football
coach and assistant baseball coach.

Prepares Guide
The campus at Texas A. & M.
College has become so large and so
many new buildings have been
erected in recent years that a guide
book is almost necessary for old
grads and other visitors to find
their way about the 4000 acre plant.
To fill that need the Humble Oil
and Refining Company, of Hous
ton, is planning to issue such a
book this year.
At present the Department of In
formation and College Publications
(Publicity Department) is at work
preparing the copy which will be
used in the forthcoming publica
tions, three in number.
One tour of the college property
will direct visitors interest in agri
culture to the several departments
of that school. Another will direct
engineering visitors about the
School of Engineering and the third
book will cover a general tour of
the entire campus.
