WORK WITH CITY OF DALLAS The City of Dallas has advised that they will soon hold apprentice examina tions for students who are graduating from college this year whose homes are in Dallas and who are interested in muni cipality work. The successful applicants are employed as apprentices for one year at a salary of from $60 to $90 per month and at the end of that year are per manently placed in some classification for which they will have to qualify by tak ing a non-competitive examination. Addi tional information on this may be secured from the Placement Bureau and interest ed seniors should come by Room 133, Ad ministration Building at once. PLACEMENT BUREAU Association of Former Student McCormick, Aggie Ex of ’91, Will Receive Honorary Doctor’s Degree Here George McCormick, general sup. erintendent of Motive Power for the Southern Pacific Railroad Com pany, with headquarters in San Francisco, will be awarded the honorary degree of Doctor of En gineering by the A. & M. college and the degree conferred at com mencement, June 6, this year. Other honorary degrees to be awarded at the same time will in clude, Doctor of Law to Mr. W. L. Clayton, Houston and to Mr. Ed win J. Kiest, Dallas; and Doctor of Agriculture to; R. J. Kleberg, Jr., Corpus Christi. All are out standing citizens of Texas and the nation. Mr. McCormick is famed in the motive power field of American railroads. Hhe was recently honor ed for his inventive achievements at a giant banquet in San Fran cisco, sponsored by the National Association of Manufacturers. He has been general superintend ent of the Southern Pacific since 1916, going with that company shortly after graduation from A. & M. with a degree in mechanical engineering. He was located in Houston for many years before being moved to San Francisco. He is the third graduate of the college to be honored with an hon orary degree by his Alma Mater, the others being Dr. F. M. Law, ’95, Houston banker and veteran member of the College Board of Directors; and Dr. Charles E. Fri- ley, ’19, president of Iowa State College. The appeal of jobs opening to youth in defense industries has had little effect in drawing students from their studies at Kent State university.

Latin Americans— (Continued from Page 1) understanding of technical electri fication problems. The Rural Electrification Ad ministration has been assisted in arranging this program for re ceiving Latin American students by the Office of Foreign Agri cultural Relations of the Depart ment of Agriculture, the Division of Cultural Relations of the State Department, and the Office of_ the Coordinator for Commercial and Cultural Relations between the Ameincan Republics. The last-named office has made available funds to pay the travel ing expenses of the engineers from the Southern republics and to pro vide each of them a monthly allow ance of $135 for the training per iod with the REA. That allow ance is equal to the amount paid to the United States engineering trainees whom the REA takes in each year. 'When these details had been worked out, the Department of State conveyed invitations to sev eral other American republics. Each Government was asked to select a candidate. It was request ed that the candidates be between 20 and 30 years old, preferably single, and graduates of a high- ranking engineering school with some work in electrical engineer ing. The tranees so far seelcted have a working knowledge of Eng lish, and many FEA employees are learning Spanish. In addition to Uruguay and Pe ru, Argentina and Mexico have already suggested candidates, both highly siklled engineers. During the early part of their stay in Washington, the Central and South American engineers will work with the trainees from United States engineering schools. After a short period of orien tation, the Central and South Americans will be given training and practical duties in keeging with their experience and ability. During their ^ year in North America, the REA will make ar rangements for their housing, for their training, and for inspection trips which they will take. These will include assignments with leading manufacturers of electri cal supplies and equipment. To ward the close of their stay, they will be assigned to visit REA sys tems throughout the United States in company with REA construc tion and operations engineers. Each of the two engineers named has won considerable distinction in his own country. Sr. Lopez-Jim- enez, who is 30 years old, was graduated from the Peruvian Na tional School of Engineers in 1937. After graduation, he went to Ay- acucho to start an electric power system. Upon his return to Peru after his year with the REA, he expects to engage in rural elec trification engineering in the cen tral Andean region on a rather ambitious scale. Sr. Rossi, who is 29 years old, Graduating Seniors— Bumpers (Continued from Page 1) sense of devotion to duty. That is a sublime work and that attitude is required equipment for success in any field. I urge you to acquire the capacity of decisive orderly action. I urge you to be respectful, loyal and obedient to those who may be your seniors and that you likewise be considerate and help ful to those who are your juniors.” Diplomas were presented by F. Marion Law, president of the Board of Directors. Lieut. Col. James A. Watson, commandant of A. & M. then presented reserve commissions in the Army to the graduates. Dr. Watts then closed the exercises with the benediction. Organ music for the ceremony was played by Marion Lyle, junior in Company F. Engineers. These special graduation exer cises were scheduled by the Aca demic Council following the decis ion of the War Department to call these men to active duty. In explaining this unprecedented action Dr. Walton said, “The Coun cil in its desire to accord all honor to those young men who, after four years of preparation through the R.O.T.C., are now subordinating their normal objectives and ambi tions to answer their country’s call for military service, hereby sets Friday, May 30, for special com mencement and graduation exer cises for all such members of the graduating class who have com pleted the requirements for grad uation.” Neuman Relates— (Continued from Page 1) complete building program of the company and had constructed fac tories in Belgium, Holland, Yugo slavia, North Africa, and England. In the months following the Peace of Munich, Neuman saw the handwriting on the wall and hav ing no desire to live under Nazi domination, he prepared to leave the country. Wanting to get as far away from Germany as possible, he had all his passports made for passage to Brazil. In the week be fore the Nazi invasion of Czecho slovakia, Neuman began his flight. Going first to Norway, he found that country, although technically neutral, so completely under Ger man control that he wasn’t allowed to leave. The September ‘blitzkreig’ of 1939 found Neuman still in Nor way. His only chance to leave the continent was through France. He finally got out of Norway and down to France in time to witness the invasion and the debacle that was Dunkirk. At Bordeaux he was put in a concentration camp by the French for trying to leave the country with money. He was held here a few months and then moved to another camp near Paris. While here he was put to work drawing plans for the construction of other camps. Neuman finally proved his iden tity and purposes sufficiently to secure his release from this camp the day before the armistice be tween Germany and France. Spain was the only place to go from there and it took him four months to cross the Spanish border. After a month in Spain he worked his way into Portugal. About the middle of last Septem ber, Neuman sailed on a freighter for Rio de Janeiro, arriving there in October. He then spent the next six months securing permission from the Bureau of Immigration to take up permanent residence in the United States. The college authorities and the architecture department here at A. & M., through their knowledge of his past record, were quite instru mental in securing Neuman’s en trance into the country. He landed at New Orleans on May 21 after two years of physical struggle and an expenditure of $2970, no small part of which went for bribes along the way. Neuman painted a most vivid was graduated in 1937 from the Faculty of Engineering of the Uni versity of the Republic at Monte video, Uruguay. He has had eight years of practical experience, in cluding three years, subsequent to obtaining his degree, in the Gov ernment-owned power station at Montevideo.

He played sandlot ball there a few years back, and pitched for a local team now and then. Last year, he was signed up by Grand Prize, and within a few days became their leading hurler. Lefty considers his best performance of his hurling ca reer to have been against the Halli burton Cementers, world champion, semi-pro team, whom he shut out, 4 to 0, scattering a total of only 3 hits. That happened last year. This is Bumpers’ fifth year at A. & M. As a freshman he took Mechanical Engineering as his ma jor, but found it a bit too hard, and took up Animal Husbandry. Un- Wild Life Agreement Adopted by Americas For Nature Protection Dr. W. P. Taylor and Dr. W. B. Davis of the Fish and Game Department report that an agree ment of continent wide scope on “Nature Protection and Wild Life Preservation” has been adopted in the Western Hemisphere. The agreement was drawn up under the auspices of the Pan American Union, Washington, D. C. , which met October 12, 1940. Up to February 25, 1941, the following countries had signed the convention, Cuba, Ecuador, El Sal vador, the United States, Nica ragua, Peru, Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Brazil, Chile, Colom bia, Costa Rica, Mexico, Uruguay, and Bolivia. The purpose of this convention is to protect and preserve scen ery of extraordinary beauty, un usual and striking geologic forma tions, regions and natural object of aesthetic, historic and scientif ic value, and areas characterized by primitive conditions in those cases covered by this convention. Another objective is to preserve certain species and genera of na- tvie flora and fauna, including mi gratory birds. picture to his listeners of the French invasion. He described the scene as being one of complete confusion with literally thousands of terror-stricken people fleeing their homes without food, supplies, or accomodations of any sort. Neuman described all the peoples in German-occupied territories as anxiously awaiting the day when they could revolt against the Ger man occupation. He attributed the intense bitterness which the oc cupied countries hold toward Ger many to two causes: the inherent hatred the people of the smaller countries have always had for Ger many, and the conduct of the pres ent German army of occupation. He expressed the belief that an all-out American aid-to-Britain would inestimably increase the de termination of suppressed peoples to overthrow the Nazi regime. Neumanns complete program and ambition for the future is to take out naturalization papers and be come a citizen of the U. S. Thanks, Aggies for your trade during the past school year. Jones Barber Shop Bryan -SATURDAY, MAY 31, 1941 less the army or some professional baseball club should call him up, Lefty expects to get his sheepskin next June. Accepts Detroit Offer Baseball, baseball, and more baseball is Bumpers’ hobby as well as his hoped-for livelihood. He has had some half dozen baseball of fers by professional teams, and it’s a safe bet to say the wrong- hander will accept one of them. He has already accepted an offer made by the Detroit Club of the Amer ican League to have a trial with them. If he comes through, he’ll probably be sent to Beaumont of the Texas League, as the Export ers have been making a determin ed bid to land him. One thing Bumpers knows for sure is that the Aggies will be wishing him all the luck in the world, and will be pulling for him to take a place with such Aggie baseball greats as Rip Collins, Beau Bell, and Jo-Jo Moore.
