LA SALLE HOTEL BRYAN, TEXAS 100 Rooms - 100 Baths Fire Proof R. W. HOWELL, Mgr. Class ’97 ’41 Longhorn— (Continued from Page 1) 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 land, 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.” Commencement— (Continued from Page 1) bers of the faculty and ex-students. The Final Ball will begin at 10 p. m. in Sbisa Hall with Lou Breeze furnishing the music. The activities Saturday will con clude the current school year. At 8:30 a. m. Major General Richard Donovan, commander of the Eighth Corps Area will make a formal presentation of reserve commissions to students who have completed their four years of military train ing. The Final Review will take place at 9:30, and at 12 noon a joint luncheon of the faculty and form er students will be held in Sbisa Hall. Easterwood^ Life— (Continued from Page 1) 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: ENSIGN JESSE L. EASTER WOOD, U.S.N.R.F. “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 tember, October, and November, 1918, bombing enemy bases, aero dromes, submarine bases, ammu nition dumps, railroad junctions, and so forth, attached to Northern Bombing Group.” Signed, For the President.

Law and William Morriss English contests and the mathematics contest will be officially announced tonight at the English-Mathematics banquet to be held in Sbisa Hall at six p. m. F. M. Law, president of the Board of Directors of the First National Bank, Houston, sponsored the Freshman English contest and Wil liam Morriss, bank director of Dal las, sponsored the Sophomore Eng lish contest. The Mathematics con test was sponsored by the math ematics department of A. & M. Prizes to be awarded in the Wil liam Morriss Contest will be $15 for first place and $10 for second. In the F. M. Law contest $20 will be awarded to first place and $10 to second. The two top entries in the Mathematics contest will re ceive a gold watch each and third place will receive $10. F. M. Law will award the prizes to winning entries in the Freshman English Contest and T. D. Brooks, Dean of Arts and Sciences and the graduate school will make the pre sentation to the winners of the William Morriss English Contest. Mrs. R. M. Walton will present the awards to the winning entries in the Mathematics contest. Saddle and Sirloin Club Holds Picnic The Saddle and Sirloin Club held it annual barbecue Tuesday night in the Animal Industries building. Barbecue and all the trimmings was served to around 200 people including Experiment Station, and Extension Service men and their wives. Immediately after awards were made to members of the junior, sophomore, and freshman livestock teams, and the Senior Meats Judg ing Team. Ribbons were presented to the winners of the Little South western Exposition held in March. Rained Out— (Continued from Page 3) 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 land. 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. ROA Honors— (Continued Trom Page 1) ed to active duty. The guest officers at the meet ing who represented the various branches of service were Col. Mit chell of the Infantry; Col. Archur L. Pickens of the Engineers, Lieut. Col. James C. Parks, Field Artil lery representative; Lieut. Col. John W. Bartlett, Chemical War fare Service; Lieut. Col. Taylor, Cavalry; Lieut. Col. Homer E. Car rico of the Cavalry; Major Gra ham C. Buchanan, Signal Corps; and Captain L. O. Vogelsang, Coast Artillery representative. Federal Agency— (Continued from Page 1) men is going to be greater with the passing years. Further, it would be a mistake for a student to drop out of a course closely related to national defense and complete some short course in order to gain employment at less than a full professional level. Students, the reports stated, are obligated to prepare and render themselves for the highest type of service and should not shift to work which can be done by a much larger number of men and women. Review— (Continued from Page 1) plane accident at Coco Sola, Pana ma Canal Zone on May 19, 1919. Easterwood served under the col ors of three foreign nations during the World War. He made 16 suc cessful raids across enemy lines during the war. The Navy Cross for bravery was awarded to Easter wood following his death. Classes will be suspended from 1 to 5 p. m. today. Cotton 0.

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.
