markets at fair prices.” He pointed
out that industry and agriculture
are closely linked together in the
matter of national welfare because
in order for farmers to find a
market for their constantly in
creasing production, industry must
be able to maintain production and
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
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
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

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.

Dr. Miller cited the advantages
of “the opportunity to combine
station work with college work,
plus the prospect of organizing
a department (of Animal Hus
bandry) in line with my own
ideas” as the principal reason for
accepting the Tennessee connection.
“The Texas A. & M. 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

asked if the faculty and profs were
requested to make it a point to
see that all men attending then-

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”.

“When two people are under the

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

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

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.
