If Marty has the same coach ing genius on the basketball team, as he did on the baseball squad, then the worries for a successful cage season will be over. However, basketball and baseball are as dif ferent and black and white, so that argument there would have to go to the trash pile. In Bill Hender son, Charlie Stevenson, R. B. Bay er, Ray Jarrett, Fred Nabors, and Mike Cokinos, Karow has some thing to work with, and may even surprise quite a number of people. But as things look now, a third or even fourth ranking in the coming standings would be a god-send to the cadets. It has been so long since an Aggie team has been bas ketball champ that not even “Cur ly” Winstead of our Publicity De partment can remember that fate ful day. Grads Ready — (Continued from Page 4) “I don’t want to spend the rest of my life in the Army,” one senior said. “I don’t like war and I don’t believe in it, but we’ve got our share of a job to do and I wish that we could get going in a hurry.” From one dormitory room where a group of seniors were saying- goodbyes came a widely-felt opin ion. “We want an early return to civilian life. We recognize our responsibility and are anxious to take hold of it, but we’d like to get this thing over with in as few months or years as possible in or der that we might return to the civilian life for which we have been preparing.” Like the man on the street, the new officers thing that this na tion’s entrance into the conflict is inevitable and they also think it will come in a hurry. So there you have it—the opin ions of half a thousand young Army officers in regard to 1941’s world strife. They want action, they be- ; lieve firmly in an all out all- ! aid-to-Britain policy, they be lieve profoundly in Britain’s ability to win the war when— but not until—the Uni^gd States enters the conflict. They hate Hitlerism with a passion which knows no bounds, they like to refer to Mussolini as Hitler’s stooge, they are par ticularly bitter where the la bor strikes are concerned and even more so as regards un- American activities, they don’t like the war but they believe that it is fast-approaching and they want to do their part. They are normal American col lege graduates who, by their own admission, are about to be cast in roles not altogether their own choosing and, as such, they want to have a hand in ending the struggle, thus winning a return to civilian life for which they have trained themselves in four years at college. They are electrical engineers, farmers, architects, accountants, veterinarians and a dozen other breeds, and they are also men who have had four years of military science training. Their mental outlook is impor tant and, as a visiting general re cently put it, “Their opinions are healthy, especially as viewed in the interests of the nation’s well being.” A. & M. has the largest defense program in the nation. corrections are effective the first term of the Summer Session: Courses added: Chem. 206a—Daily 10 :00 Econ. 204—Daily 8 :50 Lang. 105—Beginning Spanish, if de sired by 10 or more P.

THE BATTALION -THURSDAY, JUNE 5, 1941 Fuermann Releases Annual Student Aid Fund Report; Vast Advances Indicated The annual report of the A. & M. Student Aid Fund was present ed to President T. O. Walton and the Student Activities committee yesterday afternoon by Chairman George Fuermann. The constitution of the'fund pre scribes that the chairman, at the end of each college year, present an annual report to the president and the activities committee. Fuer- mann’s complete report follows: “Following a three-month period of organization and approval by the Executive committee and the Faculty, the first meeting of the Student Aid Fund was held Feb ruary 18. Following this meeting the committee scheduled regular meetings to be held the second Tuesday of each month. “At these meetings the funds’ policies were established and rou tine business was handled. “The cooperation of the cadet corps in the administration of the fund was thorough and complete. Through the medium of The Bat talion and letters to faculty mem bers, project house managers, and organization commanders, the scope and intent of the fund was explain ed to the corps in such a way that every cadet could take advantage of the fund who was in need of the assistance for which the fund was established. “As stated several times earlier this year, the prime purpose of the Student Aid Fund has been to ex tend financial assistance to cadets who need physical care and are otherwise unable to secure the necessary finances. “The correct psychology has been established in the corps that the fund is in no wise a charity organi zation. In all cases students ben- efitting from the fund pay a non- interest-bearing, non-maturity-date note and a cadet’s obligation to pay is based altogether on his ability to pay. “At the time notes are signed the signatories indicate a date at. -which time they believe they w be able to pay the note. At that time they will receive a reminder of the debt but other than that cadet will receive no notice of the obligation. The single, reminder is in the form of a letter which points out that by paying the note the cadet will thus assist other cadets in need of physical care. “It is significant that most of the cases handled in the fund’s first year of existence were com paratively small. Only two were handled by the fund which were of large financial proportions. This therefore, indicates that the fund’s resources are being spread over a wider area than had originally been expected. “Another service of the fund has been the sending of flowers to the families of Aggies in which the death of either the mother, father or the cadet himself occured. Al though this plan did not work as well as expected, changes will be instituted during the forthcoming long session which should improve this aspect of the fund. In all cases the flowers as sent as a token of solicitude from the cadet corps. “By an action taken by the com mittee at an early meeting, the fund is not to be active during the summer months, but only during the regularly scheduled long session months. “The following is the financial report of the fund’s 1941 activities through June 3. (For obvious rea sons, the names of cadets concern ed are withheld from publication.) “It should be pointed out that the various doctors, dentists and hospitals which took care of the fund’s patients made prices as low as possible. “Thus, as the Student Aid Fund concludes its first year of exist ence, it is seen that the scope of the fund will widen considerably with each new college year. Begin ning immediately with the 1941-42 ilff-long session plans will be made to continue the drive for funds. Of ficers for the forthcoming long session will be elected at the first meeting of the new college year. “Committeemen who have served this year include Cadets J. H„ Focke Jr., Tom Gillis, Skeen Sta ley and Faculty Members Dan Rus sell, George B. Wilcox and E. L. Angell. The work which these men have done is outstanding and with out them the organization and ad ministration of the fund would have been an impossibility.” A. & M. has the two largest mess halls in the world.
