Only Answer . .. After the Republican coinvention last week and the subsequent pub lication of the party platform, one cannot help but believe that the old Republican conservatism is gone forever. . , The platform that the party adopted certainly wasn’t written by a Taft, Coolidge, or Harding. The change from tile days of the 1920’s is profound: the Republicans have swung left; To be sure, the party itj still the conservative element, but its con servatism isn’t whati it was before the Roosevelt administration. It can’t afford to be.

And so, the present platform is internationalist, endorsing the United Nations, and asking for a world police fotce. It supports the / new Jewish, Israel. It is for a civil rights program but is silent on FEP( a$ it now stands. I The platform calls for reciprocal trade agreements, an intensified campaign against domestic jinflation, and a. federal housing program. It refers to collective bargaining as an “obligation as wen as a right”, and it attempts to square itself with labor by saying/that the right to strike is “subordinate only to paramount considerations of pub lic health and safety.” In addition, thei platform makes imperative an “aecflerated pro gram of sounder so|l conservation,” and it endorses farmer’s eo-opera- ti\(es and rural electrification.

This [Was followed I by a clothing issue and company organization. This company is composed of a balance of 3() men—23 from A&M, and the other seven from the Uni versity of Illinois. The major part of this first week has been taken »p by in struction ih the nomenclature, usage, and firing of caliber 30 M-l carbine rifle. The fire for record was completed today with Texas Aggie Jim Gregory being the only one in class to qualify as expert. Catnp facilities are very good and ejxrimidto effort has been put forth to make each student’s stay as enjoyable as possible, especial ly mi hie time off. Many recrea tional facilities have been prepar ed. A service club with hostess is , open in addition to trips to points of historical interests such as Get tysburg and Washington, D. C,. By EDDIE SMITH “Sooner or later we must all sit down to the banquet of conse quences”, Robert Louis Stevenson wrote many years ago. Today 3414 students of A&M find themselves partaking of the academic “feast.” For some it is an involuntary meal which was made necessary by some hard hearted professor who wrote F on that final grade report, when a D might have done just as well. No one has ever satisfactorily explain ed why professors are like that. For the veteran, who has seen his schooling interrupted once, this summer session is but another race against time. It is a race against that day when another interna tional upheaval may take place and call him from his studies. Go ing to school in hot. weather is seldom entirely to his liking and he certainly cannot be held re sponsible for preparing this; sum mer school “picnic” To other groups such as school teachers, ^hort coursers and spec-, ial students, summer school i/ comparable to a vacation or it/is merely the lesser of two evibf in the college versus home battle.
