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 solidated. 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 line. 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. 4 DO YOUR PART—BUY BONDS —Attend San Antonio Aggie Dance— Hillel Club Plans Meeting Following Sunday Services At 10:30 a.m. the Hillel Club will hold its regular Sunday Serv ices. The services will be held in the cabinet room of the “Y”. Plans have been made for the High Hol iday services and they will be announced at the meeting of the club following the services. Members who are to be on the campus during either the Rash Hashanah or Yom Kippur services are urged to be present at the meeting in order that they might make their plans to attend the services. “The meeting Sunday is very important and everyone please attend”, said Herschel Lippman, president of the club. —Attend San Antonio Aggie Dance— —ENGINEERS— (Continued .From Page 1) 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 par. 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. A. & M.
