Page 4 THE BATTALION TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1946 Brazos A & M Club Hears Col. Meloy Describe System The doors of the Military De partment are always open and any cadet can come in and talk to the military personnel at any time, Col. Giiy S. Meloy, commandant and professor of Military Science, told the Brazos County A. & M,. Club Monday evening at the Bryan Country Club. Every branch of the armed ser vices that was on the campus prior to 1942 has now been reactivated, and in adition an air unit has been established, Col. Meloy said. A better deal is being offered those who sign up for R.O.T.C. in that not only the basic ration is allow ed, but these men also are furnis- ed several items of their clothing, including shoes. Modern combat equipment is coming in all the time, all new and much of it in the original crates in which it had been placed for overseas shipment, the speaker declared. Among the military department officers are seven Texas A. & M. graduates. Enlisted personnel to tals 32, of whom 19 are master sergeants, all with oversea exper ience. Eleven of them were offi cers up to the rank of major. One of the handicaps his department is working under is that there are no advance senior units now on the campus. All present cadet offi cers would be non-commissioned officers in normal times. Col. Meloy gave a detailed ac count of how discipline is handled by the Dean of Men with the as sistance of the Military Depart ment, and discussed the relations of his department with both single and married veterans now in school. He thought that if improvement continued on the plane of the im mediate past that Texas A. & M. College would soon have its Blue Star rating again. The club voted to have its an nual banquet and dance, held in cooperation with the Athletic Coun cil, on the night of Saturday, Jan. 11, 1947. Due to the advance in prices of all food items, tick ets will sell at $2.00, which will include both the banquet from 7:00 to 9:00 p. m., and the dance from 9:30 p. m. until midnight. Atten dance will be held to 900. The club voted to change its by laws to make its fiscal year from Jajnuary througfh; December, in stead of from August through July. It was decided not to- have a meet ing of the club in December. Ar rangements have been tentatively made for showing motion pictures of the Texas-Rice football game, which Rice won 18-13, at the Feb ruary meeting.

Fish & Game Plans Summer Field Trip Preliminary plans for the sum mer field trip were discussed at the semi-monthly meeting of the Fish and Game Club last Tuesday night. Dr. W. B. Davis, head of the Fish and Game department, announced that four credit hours would be offered for a six-weeks term in the field. Tentative arrangements are being made to combine the fish and game jour ney with field trips in botany and range management. It was estimated that the total expense of the course will be ap proximately one hundred and fifty dollars. Veterans are eligible un der the provisions of the G. I. Bill of Righs. Dr. Davi$ revealed that several out of state game departments had been contacted as possible areas for the trip and that the most likely are Idaho, Wjyoming, and Montana.
