V. Walton, associate professor of agriculture education, said today. At present, the demand for vo- cationnl agriculture teachers is greater than it has been in several years; however, the supply of teachers is greater this year than in recent years, Walton said after his recent tour of the high schools in the northeast part of Texas. The main, purpose of the trip was to confer with high school superin- tendants in several town in north east Texas to work out plans for assisting first year vocational ag riculture teachers, Walton conclud ed.

Dr. Young will bc;in charge and R. R. Rhoden, assisjjmt pro fessor, ini the same department will have charge of tho camp. Both will also serve as instructors, along with C. W. Simmonsi 1 extension farm forester and A. Hi tyslkcr, extension’ range specialist. Tho course of study has! been de signed especially for the east Tex as area and is the first such school to be conducted in that sec tion of the state. Special emphasis will be placed on the identification and use of important ranke vege tation in that area. Other topics to be studied include forage utiliza tion values, brush eradication and control, livestock stocking rates and their relation to godd forest management, determination o f vegetable types and the condition of ranges.

The unanimous response of the members of the Freshman Regiment, when called on to make that extra effort, has been most gratifying. The pride of each man in his own outfit and the genuine spirit of competition among the different organizations has helped to steadily improve the Regiment as a whole.” "We feel that the Freshman Ca det has benentted to a greater ex tent than would be possible for Freshman Cadets in most ROTC units. Instead of being privates in the ranks throughout the year, about seventy per cent of the class has held one or more[ positions of leadership and responsibility. This should be invaluable to each Cadet as he continues in his Military Science work and civilian endeav ors.” “We are certain that the know- ' c of basic subjects acquired ng the year has adequately prepared each man so that as a Sophomore he can now enter with confidence tho branch of hie choice and begin his specialised training.” ♦ The committee is composed i of Prof. Otis Miller of the Journal ism Department; Dr. Thomas F. Mayo, head of the English De partment; and Prof. Norman F. Rode of the Electrical Engineering Department. It has made a three months study of the subject of re lations between faculties and ad ministrative and executive officials in American colleges and univer sities. J. j\ ' 1 j j Best Practices Reported The report of the committee will present a summation of the beet practices it has found already adop ted and in operation at the most representative American institu tions of higher learning. Recommendations of the com- mittee will include ways and means for giving administrators, execu tives, and members of the govern ing board a continuous contact with the day-to-day functioning of A&M College. ; ] ■ T The report quotes Dr. James P. Adams, rrovost ot the University of Michigan, on this point: "Trus tees are usually men of affairs, engaged in their own business or professional activities. Trustees must be kept intelligently inforjln- ed. They must be informed regard ing the educational interests of —w riie institution as they arc con- . e mmi?. *. ceived by the faculty.
