More Jobs Open
For Ag Teachers
The Gilmer-Aiken Bill, recently
passed by the state legislature,
has opened up many jobs for tho
vocational agriculture teachers in
the Northeast section of Texas, E.
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

The school is mode possible

Service and the Texas Extension

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. Fdrest range practices
that have proved successful in the
area will be observed by the class
when they make field trips.

Fish Regiment
To the Freshman Annex Class:
"In looking back on the year’s
work, we of the Military Science
Department here at the Annex
would especially commend the
Class of ’52 for their willingness
and enthusiasm which has reflec
ted by manner ofi performance on
many occasions. 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
“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

Adams, rrovost ot the University
of Michigan, on this point: "Trus
