Murray Appointed
Military Custodian
Henry E. Murray has been ap
pointed military property custo
dian, replacing Roy Casey, former
ly acting custodian.
Mr. Murray is a former student
of A.&M. and hails from Austin.
Before receiving his discharge
from the army he was commanding
officer at Bryan Field with the
rank of lieutenant colonel.
With the steady increase * of
military property on the campus
and more to come, such problems
of storage and handling were cre
ated that it became necessary to
appoint someone permanently to
this position.
At present most of the equip
ment used by the ROTC is stored
in the armory area. Buildings
are now under construction across
the tracks to store heavy equip
ment, such as guns and tanks.

return to college will have tuition
of $100 per month for a period not
to exceed 20 months.
Applicants must be 17-20 years
of age, unmarried, and in good
physical condition. It is planned
to give a nation-wide qualifying
examination to all candidates, to
be administered on January 18,
Shreveport Aggies
To Plan for Xmas
During the Thanksgiving hcji-
days the Shreveport . & M. Club
engaged in a bit of merriment at
one of the city’s finer entertain
ment spots. Now plans are under
way for an even better event to be
held o nthe evening of December
27th with some assistance from
the Shreveport Texas A. & M.
There will be a special meeting
of the Club Thursday Dec. 12th at
7:15 p. m. in Room 106 Academic
Bldg, to discuss the nature of the
function and make financial ar
rangements. All Shreveport Ag
gies are requested to attend.
At the last meeting of the Cam
era club, plans for the monthly
contest were discussed. The fol
lowing suggestions were made:
That the photo be at least five by
seven inches and preferably eight
by ten, and should be mounted on
a standard sixteen by twenty inch
mount. The next contest will be
held on Monday, January sixth,
and photos should be turned in by
Friday, January tenth.
Prizes have not been announced,
for either the print or the color
slide contest. A projector will be

A&M Now Teacher
Examining Center
A. & M. College has been made
an official teacher examining cen
ter by the National Committee on
Teacher Examinations of the Am
erican Council on Education, ac
cording to G'. B. Wilcox, Head of
the A. & M. Education-Psychology
Wilcox pointed out that these
examinations are a measurement
of knowledge and ability and the
Committee does not serve as place
ment agency for those taking the
examinations. He also added that
the examination has no direct
bearing on teacher certificate eli
gibility in Texas, and any aplicant
or a teachers certificate must
comply with all regular require
ments regardless of whether or not
ths examination is taken.
“Although in these days of
teacher shortage, the value of
these examinations is not too ap
parent, it is possible that in a few
years almost all teaching job ap
plicants will be contacted through
the National Committee, thus mak
ing the examinations essential to
securing a good teaching job,” Wil
cox said.
Examinations will be given at
A. & M. on February 8 and 15,
with application deadline on Jan
uary 8.
