Film Library Adds New Shows The Cen-Tex Film Library has added several new films since the first of the year. > Among the best of these films, said W. W. Mcllory, director of the library, is, “Silver Anniver sary”. This film is about the Fu ture Farmer organization and is receiving wide acclaim from teach ers of vocational agriculture in Texas. Twenty-five copies of this film have been placed in various li braries throughout Texas. The films were donated to the Future Farmer organization by the Fire stone Tire and Rubber company. The Cen-Tex Film Library has one copy of “Silver Anniversary” which is circulated among the teachers of vocational agriculture who are members of the library. The American Plant Food Coun cil, Inc. has placed on deposit with the library, “Milking The Most of a Miracle”. Mcllroy says this is an unusually good film. Other films purchased by the library for the use of the agricultural edu cation staff and members of the library are “ABC of the Automo bile Engine”, “ABC of The Diesel Engine”, “Diesel, The Modern Power”, and “ABC of Hand Tools”. The library has also purchased a copy of, “We Are The Aggies.” This film is used by members of the agricultural education staff LETTERS Editors, The Battalion: It was very encouraging to read the article in The Battalion con cerning the organization of a group of non-military students on this campus. May I take this oppor tunity to congratulate you on your action which in my opinion was long overdue. There has been considerable criticism of non-military students by cadets this year as in past years. There has also been con siderable criticism of Army by Air Force Cadets, criticism of Infantry Cadets by Armor Cadets, etc. and vice versa. Much of this criticism is indicative of group pride. Some of it is well founded and some of it is not. But is it the Artillery’s place, for example, to feel slighted because the Signal Corps criticizes them and attempt to get all Artil lery Cadets on all the various func tions by organizing the Artillery in a block ? Or is it their place to select the best men for the job regardless of branch ? I have attempted to draw a par- raled between what could happen on this campus and what is about to happen should the new group organized become, shall we say, misguided. This was of no concern to me until the so called “. . . pre judice from the corps . . .” became an isteue. So rather than an open split between this group and the corps I would like the opportunity of meeting with the unnamed spokesman of the group or the leaders of the group at their con venience so that we might work together toward a “Greater A&M” as was the objective stated in the article. I live in 119-12 and would consider it a pleasure if you would allow me to aid you in greater non- reg-corps relations. F. M. Mitchell ’54 Cowboy Theme Set For Story Hour Cowboys will be the theme of the Children’s Story Hour at 10 a.m. Saturday in the Carnegie Public Library in Bryan.
