Economics Course
Completed by Girls
Approximately thirty girls have
completed the home economics
course offered by Consolidated
School this summer. The course
turned out to a very successful one,
according to Mrs. Carl W. Landiss,
Home Economics teacher at Con
Starting immediately after the
spring semester of school, the girls
and their parents conferred with
Mrs. Landiss about projects to be
undertaken during the summer
course. While the girls did most
of the work in their homes, sev
eral meetings were held at the
school as means to check on the
girls’ projects. About August 31,
a display was held at the school
to show the girls’ work. Projects
were not limited to one certain
kind. There were displays of can
ned goods which have been put up
during the summer, and displays
of some of the girls’ excellent
handiwork, done along the sewing
Not all girls attending school
were eligible for the summer
course. Those who took the course
were required to have had one se
mester of home economics. And
those who successfully completed
this summer course will receive one-
half credit in their school work in
home economics. The minimum
amount of hours required in the
course was one hundred hours al
though most of the girls did many
more hours of work. Mrs. Landiss
said that those girls who will re
ceive credit for their work have
not been named yet. This will be
done the first week of school this
fall after the reports on their
work have been checked.

lege offered to make its engineer
ing collection of some 11,000 vol
umes available to engineers
through this library. This collec
tion is to be transferred from
Cushing Library, and is expected
to be done within the next two
months. Besides this service, the
college agreed to construct a
building to house the library and
staff. However, the war put a
block, into this idea and as a re
sult the library is now housed
where it is now located. In 1941,
the library was operated under the
control of the Engineering Experi
ment Station, and was so until the
end of the fiscal year, August 31,
1944. It is now under the supervi
sion of the Department of Engi
neering, P. S. Ballance, libra
rian, was sent here in 1941, to
set up the library and to organize
its proceedings.
Work toward furnishing the
reading room of the library has
been in process for several months.
Ballance said that the library is
not ready to accommodate large
crowds yet, but that the library
is open to circulate books to those
who wish them. The books avail
able now are periodicals and
technical volumes. Magazines are
circulated, but soon they will be
bound into volumes for easy ref
erence. Since the library is main
tained by the college, all students
and faculty of A. & M. are free to
use the resources offered by the
engineering library. In addition
to this number using the library
facilities, there are some five thous
and registered engineers who take
advantage of the circulation.
Books now in the shelves total
about 8000 and with the addition
of part of the technical collection
from Cushing Library, the number
is expected to reach about 10,000.
The library is a subscriber to a
large number of the periodicals
available over the country. Besides
technical books, the library is
working on maintaining a special
collection of maps and charts of
the country. Ballance said that this
collection will be a specialty of the
library and will be complete as
they maintain it. At present there
is considerable difficulty in secur- -
ing these maps and charts because
of military and other restrictions.
However, whenever possible this
collection will be maintained at
This library will be of great value
to those engineers and students
over the State of Texas. In the
years to come, volumes will be
come rare, and the knowledge of
books will become indespensible.
With such a resource of knowledge
available on the campus in the fu
ture, for full time circulation, cer- '
tainly no one will pass up the op
portunity to deepen this advantage.
With the post war planning be
ing completed, this library will
rank as one of the technical
achievements of the time.
