- MT' I ■ l . lyj. jVr. ’ A&M received two “boosts” through out the state yesterday. One was an indi cation of the college’? .ability to undertake U difficult job and get good results. The other was recognitiion of that ability. ’ . The Texas Agriculture Federation yes terday turned to A&M in recommending 1 a substitute proposal to rjeplace the Bran- nan. Plan. Included among several, sug gestions offered' in the substitute plan was a recommendation for expansion of A&M’s domestic and foreign trade train ing. Since the stdry moved on the wire A late last night we haven’t had an oppor- j: tuhity to fully investigate the extent of that sort of training offered at the col lege. However, the spontaneous inclina tion of this farm and raiich group to turn tb A&M for help in solving its problems is encouraging. It indicates tliat we are continually strengthening our ahlong the people of the state. Another example of this growing de pendence on A&M also came in on yes terday’s AP wire). Fred Weick, director' of light plane research for the college, de scribed the latest) product of his agency to 400 persons Attending the National name 4 Agricultural hand-built, low Wing plane developed es pecially for the r ation’s farmers. A story oh Weick’s repor; is on today’s front page. Less recent t ut just hs important ex amples of this trend toward recognition of A&M include the Deti. 10 editorial in the Dallas Momiag News. The News com plimented the Agricultural Experiment Station and Extension Service for their work in improving the liht yield of cotton grown in Texas. 1 i ■ || i A feature story on A&M’s a -chitect- mayor, Ernest Langford, was als< carried in the News, giving the people of the state a good picture of the type of citiz ens who teach at A&M. ! 1 | I i ! ■ J All these things are good for the col- i lege. They help jbuild a better ard better reputation for A&M throughout t legate. -However, the best reporting in tl lejBP’ld cannot ceate good news. Construe tfvilfro- grams, far-sighted research, and pr sive experimentation must first t e under taken. Such things are done at Ai! ikf.

He rtiay oven point out that Mr. Truman ran his 1948 campaign like Ponder ran the Kentucky Derby—late start, fast finish. This is all very well, but we submit that occasionally Dewey and Truman are lost in the. illustrative shuffle. . It was therefore with pleasure that we recently read a pamphlet from the Colo rado Department of Agriculture, which attempts, tb relate the whole range of po litical theory in terms of two cows.; For an organization presumably more interested in cows than in politics, the Department doesn’t do a bad job. Some sample de finitions: j Idealism: If you have two cows, you milk them both, use all the milk you need and have enough left for everyone else. Socialism: If you have two c >ws, you give both to the Government; then the Government gives you hack some milk. Imperialism j If youihave two cows, you steal somebody's Soft-pink Communism: If you have two cows, you’re a capitalist. - Capitalism: If you hive two cows, you sell one cow and buy a bull. New Dealism: If you have two cows, the government! shoots one cow; you milk the other cow, then throw part of the milk down the sink. | Anarchism: If you have two cows, your neighbor shoots one and takes the other. jl. Nazism: If you have two cows, the government ghpots you and takes both cows. ’' ” ,r! j 'I k j*- ~ Realism: If you have two cows, they’re both dry.—University of Virginia Daily. jl 1 The Baylor System and $32,000 Per School Day chapter of the <■ Education in! Texas is fast getting down to a system, or systems. There’s the A&M System, the newly formed Univer- 4 sity of Texas system, and we now hear about what amounts to a Baylor system. The size of Baylor’s several institutions $22 million. This includes medical college in Hous- uilt in the midst of the great" medical development area Houston Is presently constructing. !_. Besides the ijnain campus in Waco with , which we usually associate Baylor, the ., dental coUbge, School of nursing, and hos pital in Dallas are a -part of the system. Dr. Roy J.

Members of the class of ’53 have an opportunity to set : a real class record this week. Yesterday, all eyes were focused on early reports from the Student Senate’s first annual Campus Chest drive which got underway Monday with a goal of $4,000 to be collected by tomorrow night; Reports in yesterday’s Battalion show that A Trans portation Corps now holds the record with a contribution of $1 each from its 43 members. The Campus Chest goal is $1 per man which gives A Transportation a 100% record. I Each man at the Annex will be contacted personally be tween now and tomorrow night and be given an opportunity to help the class of '53 set a record in Campus Chest contri butions, . n 1 ■ r ■ In addition, a film will be shown at the Rlvoli tomor row night with all proceeds going to the Chest fund. Here again is an opportunity for a “first” from the Class of *53, CT Q. will be suspended for the showing. ' That goal again is $1 per man. One hundred per cent participation from the class of ’53 will set a record that will be almost impossible for future organizations to top.

THE CORPS DISSOLVED Editor, The Battalion: U Being very ill at ease with the rumors which have been going around concerning the dissolving of the A&M Corps of Cadets, we, would like to express our view points on this situation. We sincerely believe that if the A&M Corps of Cadets were dis solved, the very principles upon which A&M College was founded would be dissolved with it. We are almost positive that nine out of every- ten boys choose A&M College as their college only be cause of the Cadet Corps. Every cadet is proud of the Corps—the only one in its class this side of the Mississippi River. What else would constitute the vivid color in A&M’s history if not the Cadet Corps ? What else makes A&M' better than other colleges if not the Cadet Corps. We all believe, therefore, that the question of whether or not the Corps should be dissolved is ab surd and should be forgotten. Sincerely, Glenn Pennington ’53 G.ene Sparks 'SB ' Jose A. Olivares *53 James E. Richardson ’53 Lewis W. Patrick ’53 , (Editor’s Note—We questioned several members of the admin istration about the rumor you reported. They gave us the as surance that no proposal for dissolving the cadet corps is be ing considered, nor has such a •< motion ever been entertained. (We agreed with you that such a measure would do much to lower the esteem in which ARM is now held by so many people and we sincerely hope that dissolution of the corps will never be considered.) T-LEAVES Editor. The Battalion: I would like to call your atten tion to the article “T-Leaves”, that appeared in the March 3rd edi tion of the Daily Texan. As far as any of ns are con cerned, wc h?ve yet to read an article in the Battalian to ridicule any other school to this extent. As in our case, other boys had similar articles sent to them by their girls up at TU and the girls expressj their feeling by sayr ing they didn’t like the article either. j . t:l One line, iiat opened our eyey the Aggies, tb the jeolousy that TU has fof is as quoted below: Bible Verse Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. -i—Ecelesibstes 12: 13.
