Official Paper Of Texas A&M College And College Station Number 26: Volume 52 Battalion PUBLISHED DAILY IN THE INTEREST OF A GREATER A&M COLLEGE COLLEGE STATION (Aggieland), TEXAS MONDAY, OOCTOBER 22, 1951 Published by The Students Of Texas A&M For 73 Years Price Five Cents New US-Red Truce Talks To Start Tuesday Munsan, Korea, Oct. 22—UP)—Korean truce talks are expected to resume tomorrow or Wednesday. Liaison officers today completed an agreement for re opening negotiations after a two-month break. The United Nations command promptly ratified it. If the Communists OK it today, armistice talks will re open at 11 a.m. tomorrow (9 p.m. tonight EST). Brig. Gen. William P. Nichols, spokesman for the U.N. command, said if Red approval is received tomorrow morn ing, delegations “may well agree on initiating the sessions to morrow afternoon.” The two five-man negotiating committees will meet in a faded yellow tent at Panmunjom, midway between oppos ing front lines. They will take up right where they left off at Kaesong—on the questtion of where to create a demilitar ized zone for the armistice. T h Sunday Battle Finds GIs In Midst of Death A&M Cadet Corps On Parade! Reds suspended the Kaesong talks Aug. 23. They charged the Allies bombed the Kaesong neutral zone the day before but the Allies de nied the charge. U. N. and Communist liaison of ficers completed their arrange ments for renewal of negotiations by signing an eight-point security pact at 10:45 a.m. Monday. Ratification Delivered Three hours and 20 minutes lat er the U.N. ratification was deliv ered to the Reds at Panmunjom. It called on the Communists to renew truce talks “without further delay.” The U. N. ratification was sign ed by Vice Adm. C. Tuimer Joy, chief U.N. delegate. He told North Korean Lt. G'en. Nam II, head of the Red delegation, the Allied ne gotiating team was prepared to meet with the Communists the day after the Red reply was received. He set the hour for meeting at 11 a.m. Joy’s purpose in ratifying the security agreement before talks actually begin, and asking for the Red endorsement in advance, was to prevent a possible reopening of discussion of the “ground rules” by the Communists. Items Enumerated Joy’s message enumerated the items of the agreement signed by liaison officers as well as the “mu tual understanding” they reached in 12 sessions at Panmunjom. The eight-point agreement pro vides for a demilitarized zone with 1,000 yard radius at Panmunjom, attack-free areas with a three mile radius for the Reds’ headquarters at Kaesong and the U.N. truce team at Munsan, and a quarter mile corridor center of the road linking Munsan, Panmunjom and Kaesong. It guarantees against hostile acts against any of these zones. Both delegations are provided free access to the conference site with the head of each delegation decid ing the size and composition of his own party. Hostile Acts Dwindled Hostile acts along the entire front dwindled as possibility of ne gotiating an end to the shooting revived. The U.S. 8th Army’s Monday evening communique re ported only patrol action except on the Central Front around Kum- song. There, the communique said Allied infantrymen “were advan cing . . . against little enemy op position.” In preparation for renewed ne gotiations, Reds removed the few Korean families from the thatched roofed huts in Panmunjom. A. R. Burgess Co-Chairman of Industry Group Station is co-chairman of a special meeting for industry, to be held during the annual Texas Personnel and Manage ment Association conference Thurs day and Friday at Texas Univer sity in Austin. Burgess is head of the Industrial Engineering Department. The conference will open at 10 a. m. Thursday and will close with a luncheon Friday. Personnel and Management executives of Texas will hear the nation’s top experts in human relations. Keynote of the meeting will be set by Dr. Thomas Gordon of the University of Chicago psychology department at the opening session. He will speak on “The Challenge of a New Conception of Leadership.” Dean W. R. Spriegel of the Uni versity’s College of Business Ad ministration is general chairman of the conference, which has head quarters on the Austin campus. Central Front, Korea, Oct. 22 —(AP)— Machine guns crackled on a towering peak where allied infantrymen bat tled Chinese at close range. Hardly a mile forward lay Kum- song, the Communist base. In the valley below Allied tanks fired their booming canons at the Reds. While Allied shells roared over head a tiny bell tinkled in the chaplain’s hand. It was Sunday afternoon at the front. Robed in white, the chaplain stood at his improvised altai’— the hood of a jeep—as he conduct ed mass. Behind him GI’s knelt in the grass along the banks of the Kum- song River. Their helmets and rifles lay close by their sides. For a few moments they paused to worship, then picked up their weap ons and returned to the front. Over a hill beyond the river four young soldiers probed for mines in a paddy. They jabbed the soft dirt with the bayonets of their rifles. When one of them found a mine he knelt cautiously, disarmed it and then gently pulled it out of the ground with a lonk wire. “It sure gives you a funny feel ing to tinker with these babies,” explained Pvt. James B. Collins, Akron, O. Collins said he didn’t realize it was Sunday afternoon. “Gee, if I was home now I’d probably be washing the dirty dishes and loving every minute of it,” he said with a broad smile. A short distance away two wounded soldiers were laid gently on the rocky river bank. Medics hovered over them and bandaged their wounds. They were lifted into a little jeep for the trip to the rear. As the sun sank below the high hills, a medic lifted a bottle of plasma and sent new blood flowing into the veins of a wounded soldier lying on a stretcher. A half-dozen ragged Chinese prisoners sat against a hillside close by. In the tall grass, an army blan ket covered all but the boots of another GI. Death was here too, this Sunday afternoon. Student Senate Meets The Student Senate will meet at 7:15 tonight in a special ses sion in the Social Room at the MSC, announced Grady Smallwood, senate president. The president asked all mem bers to be on hand for the im portant meeting. The A&M Cadet Corps as it looked from high above Main Street in Fort Worth during the bi annual “cowtown” Corps Trip parade Saturday morning. Thousands of Fort Worth people as well as Aggies’ dates and visiting football fans saw the spectacle which included more than 4,500 uniformed A&M students. The parade preceded the TCU-A&M football game at Amon Carter Stadium Saturday afternoon. TCU Downs Ags In 20-14 Upset By BOB SELLECK Battalion Sports News Editor Coach Ray George was officially initiated into the Southwest Conference when the Ag-' giesMell before the ambitious Horned Frogs, 20-14, last Saturday afternoon in Amon Car ter Stadium. Traditionally unpredictable, the S W C more than lived up to itself by providing the first “upset Saturday” of the 1951 season. The largest crowd in the history of Fort Worth, 34,794 turned out to see the TCU boys come from behind with, only nine min utes left to play in the final quarter to win Taxing, Spending Congress Adjourns Washington, Oct. 21—OP)—A big spending, heavy taxing congress adjuorned to 1951 session Satur day night. The lawmakers will re convene Jan. 8. Congress increased taxes by $5,- 691,000,000 annually. Among other things, it appropriated $56,900,- 000,000 for the military and an additional $7,329,000,000 for a pro gram of military and economic aid Blue Monday at A&M Corps Trip Ends in Dismay By JOEL AUSTIN Battalion Managing Editor Today was indeed a blue Monday on the A&M campus. Tired from a busy three-day corps trip and downcast from the 14-20 upset at the hands of TCU Saturday afternoon, the Aggies be gan trickling back onto the cam pus yesterday afternoon from Fort Worth. The unusual spirit which had prevailed since school started Sept. 17 was lacking and the 12th man, as well as the foot ball team, suddenly realized there had been a sudden awaken ing lashed to them by the un derdog Horned Frogs. TCU scored three touchdowns in the last nine minutes of play to sew up the ball game and beat the Aggies who had led after a score less first half. Aside from the unhappiness of defeat and the absence of victory celebrations Saturday night, the Aggies and the Tessies of TSCW had quite a weekend in their fif teenth annual joint corps trip. It was the ninth such meeting in Fort Worth and the girls from Denton came in by the hundreds to witness the Aggies’ parade in downtown Fort Worth Saturday morning, and to join them at the football game that afternoon. Sophomore Wanda Harris of TSCW was crowned Aggie Sweet heart for 1951 by Corps Command er Eric Carlson during half time activities. Miss Harris was presented with a bouquet of flowers and the traditional kiss from the corps leader. Unofficial statis ticians reported the kiss lasted approximately 20 seconds—near ing the all-time record. The Aggie Sweetheart was on hand Saturday morning to view the corps parade from a special A H Burge, of coi.ege Dr Armstrong Price Named Counsellor for Institute Dr. W. Armstrong Price, pro fessor of geological oceanography, recently was appointed a counsel lor of the seminary for Cenozoic Studies of the Geological Insti tute National University of Mex ico. Dr. Price replaces Dr. Kirk Bryan of Harvard University, who died last year. The Geological Institute, which is the governmental geological sur vey body for Mexico, usually has four counsellors in the United States. These offices are filled by vertebrate paleontologists and geol ogists engaged in the study of the remains of early man and the sediments in which these re mains are buried. The selection of Dr. Price is in recognition of his studies of the Pleistocene and Recent sediments and plains of the southwestern United States and marginal areas of Mexico. His use of archaelogical evi dences, especially in the study of ancient Indian cultures of the clay dunes of the coast of Texas and Tamaulipas, and his chronol ogy of the extensive fossil dune fields of the High Plains of Texas and New Mexico with the asso ciated lakes lend particular distinc tion to the office to which he has been appointed. Dr. Price has been associated with the Oceanography Depart ment at A&M since early in 1950 and presently is concerned with research in geological oceanogra phy. He has published some 100 technical articles and has had ex tensive academic and industrial research experience. reviewing stand set up in front- of the Texas Hotel. Also in the reviewing stand were dignitaries from TSCW, TCU, A&M, and Col onel of the Corps Carlson. Football star Augie Saxe, who is out of the cadet lineup with a broken arm, also viewed the parade from the reviewing stand. Thfe cadets assembled in an area just east of the Texas and Pacific Railroad Reservation on Main Street at Vickery. Guidons and regimental colors were spotted at Fall AF Grads Will Receive Early Duty Call Air Force ROTC students of all colleges in the United States who receive commis sions and baccalaureate de grees between Jan. 1 and March 23 will be ordered to ac tive military service within 99 days of their graduation, Head quarters, USAF, has announced. AF students who are veterans are excluded from the call. They may be called should future re quirements of the service dictate such action, the Air Force said. No announcement has been made as to the calling of Air Force ROTC students who graduate after March 23. The Air Force said that a decision concerning their call will be announced later, after a “detailed determination of Air Force requirements” is made. The January-March graduates who are called will be encouraged to apply for flying or meteorology training. These students may also submit requests for evaluation for language training. The Air Force is currently offering language training in the Slavic, Arabic, Ro mance and Far Eastern language groups. Adickes Winner Of Scholarship Cecil Frederick Adickes Jr., of Huntsville, has been named win ner of the Texas Chapter, Ameri can Foundrymen’s Society, scholar ship of $360 at A&M. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Cecil F. Adickes Sr., of Huntsville, and a senior student in. Industrial Engineering. His father graduated from the College in Civil Engineer ing in 1910. In addition to being an outstand ing student, Adickes is a member of the Student Senate, the Ross Volunteers and an officer in the Cadet Corps. 8:30 a. m. so corps men arriving for the 10 a. m. parade could find their units and line up to march out as scheduled. Headed by the Corps Staff and Maroon and White bands, the cadet corps moved onto Fort Worth’s Main Street at 10 a. m. sharp to begin their 15 block march. Thousands of spectators jammed downtown Fort Worth to see the 4,600 man military contingent from A&M. As usual, the Aggies met their dates at the dismissal area on Grove Street and continued their partying and merrymaking which had commenced the night before. At TSCW Friday night an all college dance was held in the Un ion Building. A capacity crowd jammed the dance floor as the TSCW orchestra furnished music for the dancers. More than 400 Aggies made the trek to Denton Friday after noon and caused many headaches for the TSCW officials who tried to arrange housing facilities for them. The situation finally re sulted in many of the A&M stu dents sleeping in cars, on couch es, and just about any conven ient place they could find—in cluding three or four to a double bed. Sayers Hall was used to accom modate about 200 of the visiting students from A&M while Sirt Cuadado Dormitory was also open to the Denton visitors. Special charter buses were jam med with Aggies and Tessies early Saturday morning as the students made the 30 mile trip to. “cow- town” for the big parade, football game, and nighttime activities. The boot-studded delegation from A&M made quite a hit with the people of Fort Worth as'they paraded down Main and Houston Streets. In the parade which lasted for 35 minutes, all eight- regiments and two bands of the cadet corps took part. Only units absent were the senior compan ies and A Athletic which is spending its Thursday afternoon drill hours practicing football these days. The usual outfit parties pre vailed Saturday night. Numerous private parties \Vere also held in and out of Fort Worth Friday and Saturday. for foreign nations not under Sov iet domination. And it gave some raises to gov ernment employes. Some jobs were cut out. In international affairs congress extended until June 12, 1953, the President’s power to make recip rocal trade agreements. It auth orized an emergency loan of $199,- 906,000 to India for food; said the President should obtain congres sional approval before committing additional American troops to Gen. Eisenhower’s western European army; ordered cessation of Uni ted States military and economic aid—with some exceptions—to na tions shipping arms or war mater ial to Russia or her satellites. The congress expressed friendship of the American people for all the people of the world, and denounced the arrest and conviction in Czech oslovakia of William N. Otis, an Associated Press reporter, on “spy ing” charges. Draft Legislation In national defense, the draft law was extended to mid-1955, and the minimum induction age was lowered to 18Vi. In addition to oth er appropriations, Congress auth orized the Navy to spend up to $2,700,000,000 for construction and conversion of warships. It also au thorized the armed forces to build facilities and bases costing $5,800,- 000,000 but then cut the program by appropriating only about $4,- 250,000,000 to foot the bill. All told, Congress appropriated more than $90,000,000,000 in the 10 months it was in session. to the amazement of all the fans. The big question of what fired up the Frogs is still unanswered and probably never will be solved. No single play or individual performance, can be called the sole cause, because it was just a combination of all happenings and the conclusion came only with the end of the game. TCU’s on-side kick might be considered one of the turning points after it set up their second touchdown. ^ Another deciding factor was Ray McKovvn, Frog’s third string quar terback, literally shoved the Frogs into their, last quarter rally. McKown, 190-pound 19-year-old sensation from Dumas, twisted and squirmed for 49 yards for TCU’s fii'st points. He then sent John Harvill for eight yards around end for the second score and then bowled through the middle himself from the one yard line for the de ciding third tally. Scoreless First Half Although, the first half was scoreless, the Aggies dominated the play. Two first half drives were stopped. One was on an in tersectional pass thrown by Garde- mal intended for Robert Shaeffer. The other attempt failed on a fum ble. The Cadets scored first in the third quarter on a Dick Gardemal to Bob Smith pass play which net ted 66 yards. Brusin’ Bob scored his first touchdown of 1 the 1951 football sea son when he scooted down the side lines for 55 yards with TCU’s Sammy Morrow giving chase all the way. Darrow Hooper added the extra point and the Aggies held a 7-0 lead and look if they might open the game up. Early in the fourth quarter, the Cadet machine struck for another quick TD after Bill Ballard, sub stitute for Augie Saxe, who was out with a broken arm, intercepted a TCU pass. Graves to Tidwell Then quarterback Ray Graves passed 12 yards to Billy Tidwell all by himself in the end zone for the second and final tally. Darrow Hooper again added the extra point and the Aggies felt in sured with a 14-0 lead and less than 11 minutes to go in the game, A few seconds later McKown shook loose for his back-breaking (See SHAEFFER, Page 3) Jukes to Lecture At A&M Wednesday Dr. Thomas Hughes Jukes will also determined the relations be- Aggieland Sweetheart! Eric Carlson, commander of the A&M cadet corps, makes that title official for Miss Wanda Harris, TSCW sophomore, during halftime activities at the A&M-TCU game Saturday. While the band was formed in the letters W-A-N-D-A and played “Let Me Call You Sweetheart”, Carlson planted a 20-second kiss on the beautiful lass from San Antonio to near previous records for such a performance. give a graduate lecture in the lec ture room of the Biological Sci ences building Wednesday, Oct. 24 at 8:30 p. m.
