Wickard emphasized that the' ti’emendous agricultural demand for goods now unobtainable be cause of war shortages would pro vide the stimulus for postwar in dustrial production. He stressed particularly the replacement of farm machinery which has worn out during the present emergency then added that great new fields of farmer consumption are as yet untapped in the fields of rural electrification and refrigeration for farm units. Wickard indicated strongly that in order to maintain agricultural standards of living the government would maintain price supports for at least two years after the war and conduct a long range adjust ment program to shift farm pro duction into line with peace time requirements. Two Day Conference The Farm and Industry Confer ence began Thursday morning with registration in the lobby of the Y.M.C.A. and ended Friday after noon with a conducted tour of gen eral and specific points on the A. & M. campus. Approximately 250 leaders of agriculture and in dustry met in a series of confer ences during the two day conven tion to discuss current problems of industry and agriculture and the interrelationship of the two. In commenting on the confer ence Dean E. J. Kyle, Dean of the A. & M. School of Agriculture, said, “The meeting has been very successful in accomplishing a meeting of the minds between in dustry and agriculture. Attendance was the finest we could have hoped for.” Conference Keynote Dean Kyle keynoted the con ference Thursday with his talk on “Current Problems Facing Agri culture.” Pointing out that the present war has brought untold sacrifice of human life, destruc tion of property, and disorganiza tion of normal business Dean Kyle said, “Since history, presenting centuries of evidence, gives us this solemn warning, it seems to me it is our duty to do everything within our power to prevent this post-war disorganization that might be in its final effects more blighting than the war itself, from again sweeping this earth, and es pecially this country, at the close of this tragic conflict.” Summarizing the problems con cerned with wheat, cotton, tobacco, corn-hog products, peanuts and soybeans, and beef cattle produc tion Dean Kyle concluded that aft er the war farm production would be geared to 30% above peacetime demand. As a solution to this Kyle said that there were only two out lets, domestic consumption and foreign markets. Kyle expressed the opinion of the majority of national planners an army sergeant who with his crew is lost with their tank in the Sahara Desert. They capture a German column moving into the American lines and as a whole, make plenty of excitement. 'Jhe Lowdown: A good picture. It’s not Bogart’s latest, but really worth seeing.

Elaine Williams is a regular on “Appointment with Life” and “My True Story.” She has rare honor of being invited twice to appear on the BLUE's “Blind Date.” when he said that farm surplusses could be best taken care of through increased national consumption brought about by full industrial employment. To accomplish a large volume of foreign trade Kyle re marked that world economic and political security must be guaran teed. “What this country sorely needs well trained world traders in ag riculture who know their own peo ple and their economy and peoples and the economy of all lands,” was the gist of problems facing agriculture and industry as presented by Dean Kyle.

College ac cepts Dr. Miller’s resignation with deep regrets as we consider him an able, well trained and effi cient teacher and administrator,” Dean Kyle said. “He is one of the best posted men on the sheep and goat industry we have in the en tire country.” “Dr. Miller has rendered es pecially valuable service to the Texas A. & M. College in the ad ministration of the Animal Hus bandry Department in these trying times, including the operation of the meat processing plant which handles all local killed livestock for Brazos county, including the Bryan Army Air Field,” Dean Kyle added.

The circu lar stated that if the professor would send any student who did not have a card to the office, the registrar would be glad to make one out for him immediately. Instructors should report all absences from class, including those authorized or excused, said the notice, not just cuts. It was asked that all passing grades be noted in letters of the alphabet, and those below 70 numerically. According to the notice, grades must be turned in for all students, including graduates. The class cards will be returned to the pro fessors in the same order that they are sent in, which will usual ly be by sections. Instructors were asked to place the grade in the upper right hand corner of the card in the space labeled “Grade to Dec. 1”. -PLUCK THE OWLS- —SENIORS- (Continued From Page 1) and dean of Texas A. & M., said earlier Thursday that he had no information concerning the trans fer of room assignments.

Professor—“Generally speaking, can you define priorities?” Aggie—“Priorities is somethin’ you must write on orders to get what there isn’t anything left of but.” * George Bernard Shaw said, “When two people are under the influence of the most violent, most msance, most delusive, and most transient of passions, they are re quired to swear that they will re main in that excited, abnormal, nad exhausting condition continually until death do them part.’ ’ A bit of last minute advise to Aggies about their health and its care oh a corps trip.

The trouble being of course, that most people can’t afford to keep filling them.” Noted Agg-ie Spirit OT LONG AGO several stu dents at L. S. U. were asked by rhe Reveille, L. S. U. student news paper, what was their definition of school spirit. One reply was, “I couldn’t tell you. All I know is that it’s something L. S. U. doesn’t have. Texas A. & M. has about the best school spirit of any in the country.” Another was, “Do you have to come to me ? It’s some thing like the Aggie have.” —BOOKS— (Continued From Page 2) parts of large and small to bring about their elimination. “If the world is really to be a better place, the social conflict within nations and the economic and political con flict between them must be abated. Both conflicts are essentially eco nomic.” Mr. Becker thinks that these things can be done, if the United States and Great Britain will initiate proper negotiations. Mr. Becker does an excellent job in How New Will the Better World Be by making clear the differences in the philosophies of government, such as Democracy, Marxism, So cialism, and Fascism.
