Sincei'ely yours, James H. Cook ’56 “C” Field Artillery Dodgers (Continued from Page 1) in the spacious grounds of Yankee Stadium. Podres and Hodges just didn’t mind tempting fate at all, yester day. And the Dodgers are now celebrating their first World Championship. Duke Snider, powerful center- fielder for Brooklyn, hit four homeruns during this year’s Series —the second time he has perform ed that feat. He now has nine homeruns in World Series play, one more than Joltin’ Joe Dimag gio, and stands third behind Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth. Podres’ clutch victory was his second of the Series; his first was in the third game, 8 to 3, which started Brooklyn on the comeback trail. By BARBARA PAIGE Battalion Woman’s Editor The old phrase “I’ve been work ing over a hot stove all day” has rung through many a household but Mary Briggs, director of the • MSC Craft Shop, could probably top them all. Among her many duties, Mary manipulates the complicated kiln which reaches a top temperature of 1,900 degrees over a period of eight hours. The kiln is one of, if not the most important; phase of ceramics. Every ceramic piece has at least two and sometimes three “firings” in the kiln. “But there is tedious work ac quainted with ceramics before the kiln comes into the light,” said Mrs. Briggs, wife of Charles Briggs, senior dairy production ma jor. Mrs. Briggs teaches ceramics to 60 students and wives, along with leather tooling, metal works and sculpturing. “This is the largest early enroll ment the Crafts Shop has ever had,” said Mfs. Briggs, “and we expect about 20 more students in the class.” Most of the 48 students wives in the classes are interested in cer amics, their chief purpose being Christmas gifts. Ceramics pupils have a variety of 40 models to choose from in se lecting their subject, 14 of which were purchased for the shop last year. “These molds run from lamp bases to figurines,” says the exper ienced teacher. “One wife is mak ing her own 12 piece pottery set. The process is fairly simple but great care has to be taken when handling the fragile pieces, she ad ded. The liquid clay sets for about an hour when it is poured into the molds, then after its removal, must dry for approximately 12 hours. It is next sanded or scraped smooth and painted in preparation for the first firing. After the eight hour firing, it remains in the kiln 24 hours while it cools. The ceramic piece is then paint ed with a glazed finish and fired again. Gold or china finish re quires a third firing. “We hope to have another kiln installed in time for the Christmas rush,” said Mrs. Briggs. Although ceramics takes a ma jority in the shop, there are sev eral students interested in leather tooling. One in particular, a pro fessional tooler, is James Miller, freshman, who has tooled saddles, boots and designed patterns for leather shops. Classes are held in the Craft Shop from 1-5 p.m. every day ex cept Wednesday and Sunday and 7-10 p.m. Monday through Thurs day. Students and wives may come any time they want unless classes grow too large. Enrollment in the Craft Shop is $1 per semester for students and wives. The clay or leather goods are sold at the shop. “Sculpturing or free-form, as it is called, may be done here,” says Mrs. Briggs, “but the potter’s wheel takes so much time and prac tice, very few students or wives ever tackle it.” When questioned about the length of time it takes a student to catch on to the knack of ceramics, Mrs. Briggs said it depends entii’ely on the person. Some never have enough confidence’ or patience to tackle the molds and scraping with out constant help. The Crafts Shop has cash awards for first, second and third place in the separate studies of ceramics, metal and leather each spring. “This year we hope to enter the Southwest Ceramic Show in Dallas if we have enough outstanding ar ticles,” the instructor said. “No two molds will ever look exactly alike. Every person changes the finishes in one way or another.” Social Whirl Newcomer’s Club, a branch of the A&M Social club, will hold an informal lawn party at the home of Mrs. M. T. Harrington. It will begin at 3 p.m. to day, and will honor new members.

The meeting will take place in the South Solai’ium of the YMCA. * * * Warren Rice, assistant professor in the Mechanical Engineering De partment, spoke to the M.E. Wives Club Monday night on the History of Engineering. “Mr. Rice presented a short sum mary of different laws in the Engi neering field in order that it may help the wives to better understand their husbands’ major,” said Estil- line Irwin, president.

Such a conecpt of education is in complete harm ony with the student personnel point of view — a point of view which recognizes that the center of all education attentions is the individual student and that his wel fare and proper development ai’e of paramount concern. It does not ‘buy’ the concept that ‘the punish ment must fit the crime.’ Rather it states that discipline is an edu cational process—that effective dis cipline aims at rehabilitation of an offender.” Moi’e. than 75 attended the con- fei’ence.
