New Loan Fund
Fays Tribute
To George Long
As a tribute to a man who,
for over 40 years helped the
students at A&M with their
financial and other problems,
the relatives and friends of
George A. Long started a Student
Loan Fund in his memory.
The George A. Long Memorial
Fund was turned over to Col. R. F.
Sauer, of the Student loan office,
in October and at that time was
around $400.
“The activating fome behind the
fund was Mrs. Annie Long Mitchell,
a sister of Long. She was very
determined to start the fund on or
before her brothers’ birthday, Oct.
28,” said Oscar S. Long, nephew
of Long.
The names of donors that started
the fund are Mrs. Josephine W.
Long, mother of George Long;
three sisters, Mrs. Annie Long
Mitchell, Mrs. Lena Long Turner
and Mrs. Bertie Long Norton; three
nephews, Oscar S. Long ’38, Lt.
Ray W. Long, USAF, ’51 and John
W. Long.
In a letter from Oscar Long The
Battalion learned that he intends
to contact the members of the class
of 1917, of which George A. Long
was a member and class agent, and
inform them of the fund.
After his graduation in 1917
Long was an assistant county
agent until he started work for
the college in 1926 with the busi
ness office. He worked in that
capacity until 1947 when he was
put in charge of Student Loans
and Labor. He served in that ca
pacity until his death last summer
in Houston.

KEITH ALMOST went to Baylor

Breckenridge schoolboy, but, luck
ily, changed his mind and wound
up at A&M.
Keith, a converted halfback who
was good enough to make Lineman
