COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 9, 1956 Price Five Cents Cadet Oaths '.of Given Today / Office to 650 HE’S GOT IT—Don Watson makes a fabulous catch over two Tech defenders for A&M’s third touchdown in Saturday’s 40-7 stomp in Dallas. —Phot by Noble Eden. ^Infinitesimal” Sen. Kefauver Defends Democrat’s Innocence WILMINGTON, Del., — Sen. Estes Kefauver campaigned inten sively in Delaware yesterday after noon and last night despite a cold and sore throat, asserting any mg doing in the Democratic party in the past was “infinites imal” compared with Eisenhower administration “giveaways.” The Democratic vice-presiden tial nominee, starting a week’s seven-state, 4,000-mile swing, rode in an open car through Dover and Wilmington and made three sched uled speeches as well as one impromptu talk. Kefauver’s first appearance was at an open air rally in front of the Delaware State Capitol Build ing after a midafternoon depar ture Trom Washington. In this talk he said the Democrats “now have a party of idealism, a clean party, worthy of your full support.” Asked at his news conference if this meant he did not consider the party clean in the past, he an swered : “I didn’t mean that in those pro- the Esten Will Speak To Women’s Club C. K. Esten, assistant professor in the English department, will speak to the Bryan Women’s Club Wednesday afternoon. The subject of his talk will be “Genesis of Tragedy.” To illustrate his speech Esten will present a scene from “Caine Mutiny Court Martial” that the Aggies Players presented last fall. Working with Esten and playing the parts that they portrayed in the show will be Harry Gooding as Queen, Charles Ware as Green- wald and Toby Hughs as the court president. Stewart Speaks At Lions Club Arthur Steward, -assistant fessor of business law in Division of Business Administra tion spoke to the weekly luncheon of the College Station Lions Club yesterday in the Memorial Student Center. Speaking on community property laws between man and wife in Texas, Stewart, a practicing at torney, pointed out that under the Texas constitution, property is as signed to man and wife according to three categories. “Property owned by the husband before marriage or the wife before marriage belongs to them alone,” he said, “but all property earned after marriage is community pro perty.” The Lions also discussed the sale of Christmas cards to benefit the Lions’ crippled children clinic and introduced one guest, Bob Davis, a member of the Bryan Evening Lions Club. terms. I felt the Democratic party needed many more hard working women volunteer’s and the enthu siasm of young people. We had grown a little stodgy and that’s why we lost the 1952 election. But we have been much rein vigorated since that time.” In a speech last night at a rally at a Wilmington high school, he said women are going to vote in record numbers this fall and most of them will support the Demo crats because of the “rising tide of inflation.” Kefauver defended his running mate, Adlai Stevenson, from a charge made earlier in the day by Sen. Knowland (R-Calif) that the former Illinois governor was “too naive” to be commander- in- chief of the nation’s armed forces. “We of the Democratic party have a program that is good for the people and we have men who are capable of carrying out foreign policies without losing us all of the friends in the world that Mr Dulles’ and Gen. Eisenhower’s policies have lost us.” President Outlines Growth, Continued Corps Progress Speaking before the entire cadet corps and especially to the approximate 650 cadet officers taking the oath of office, President David H. Morgan today said, “We can never be contented with what we have accomplished—we must continue to push forward in the development of the Corps.” In opening, President Morgan touched on the signifi cance of the ceremony in that it “is one rich in meaning be cause it represents the rebirth of the Corps and signifies our rededication to its principles and our pledge to work un ceasingly for the achievement of its objectives. “No matter what we do or say, the actions of the Corps * ^and of the individual in the t-^ i| ’ll « Corps are the bases upon t ood handlers School In MSC This Week The Bryau-Brazos County Health Unit and the Texas State Depart ment of Health is sponsoring a Biennial Foodhandler’s School in the Memorial Student Center Ball room continuing through Friday this week.

Un fortunately, too many people think of the Corps only in terms of these functions and in terms of bracing on the campus and r eports of men tal harrassment.” In explaining the feeling of some Aggies that some of the correction placed on freshmen students has a role to play “in the so-called de velopment of man,” the president pointed out that “change is a part of life itself. Yet there is tre mendous resistance because we all feel so smugly secure in old pat terns of action.” The Corps Is A Privilege “As I have stated in previous talks,” Morgan said, “the Corps comes first. It is more important than any individual. Since ROTC is an elective, it is a privilege and not a right to be a member of the Corps. The privilege of r emaining must be earned. “However, if it is to be a privi lege to be in the Corps, the Corps must be worthy.” The president went on with “Gen tlemen, hazing is to A&M as drug is to an addict or alcohol is to an alcoholic. One shot or one drink leads to another until the very soul of the individual becomes dis integrated. “The Corps can be one body, or it can be a disintegrated mass with cancerous growths eating away at its heart and body until even its soul is destroyed with only the frame showing,” he added. Morgan praised this crop of ca det officers by saying “we are convinced that we have the depth in leadership this year which we lacked last year. You, the cadet officer’s have the ability and we have confidence that you will use that ability in the best interests of the Corps.” Morgan said he Avas encouraged (See PRESIDENT, Page 2) Boiler Blast Kills Two; Ten Listed Critical MILWAUKEE—UP) — An explosion ripped through the administration building at the Ampoc Metals Inc. foundry on the city’s Southwest Side yes terday killing two and injuring 21 persons.
