The Battalion ...» College Station (Brazos County), Texas PAGE 2 Thursday, October 11, 1956 Letters to the Editor To the Editor This letter is directed at the certain highranking' Air - Force KOTC instructor who allegedly made the remark that the non- regs on this campus are second class. I am one of the so called “Second Glass Aggies.” There are a great number of the non-regs on this campus who have given a little of their time to Uncle Sam. I served my time. Four year's to be exact— four year-s in one of the world’s finest outfits, the United States Marine Corps. Yes, and I did a tour of duty in Korea also. Many “Second Class Aggies” made that tour during the winter of 1950. Are the non-regs who hold the Purple Heart and bear - the visible scars of combat also “Second Class?” And what about those Aggies who have spent so many years in wheelchairs, on crutches, and with their bodies twisted by Polio and other crippling diseases ? I sup pose that they are second class. Secorrd class indeed! They have the guts it takes to be a man. They are more of a man than 1 am and they certainly starrd head arrd shoulder’s above a certain high-ranking Air Force KOTC in structor. Personally, I am in favor of KOTC training. We need a power ful military command which is well trained and ready to defend this country at a moments notice. I feel that A&M graduates many fine young officers each year and I have deep admiration and respect for the Corps of Cadets. But I have no respect or admi- ration for an officer who makes such an awkward, foolish state ment. Sir, you are charged with mold ing these young men into the war riors of the future, but do you think that you can do that job by breeding hatred and contempt? No, you certainly cannot. Teach them to be men and you will have done your job well. W. E. (Bill) Lynch Class of ’59 To the Editor I realize there are many second- rate Aggies, but by the same token 1 realize there are many second- rate officers in the service of our country. I feel sure I am addressing this reply to one of the latter. As an ex-Marine I have always considered myself to be a military- minded man. I consider A&M to be the finest in military schools and KOTC training to be essential for the continued welfare of our coun try. I have the highest respect for our fine Corps of Cadets, but I feel it is a pity for these young men to have to look to a man of your calibre for their training in leadership. As a buck - sergeant I served (See Letters, Page 5) A&M Mens Shop 103 N. Main North Gate The Fall season is here and now is the time to buy your Sport Coats and Slacks.

Dallas Bias, to wear a fancy $300 uniform. It had the four stripes of a Navy captain, the epaulets of an Air Force colonel, and a cap visor with “scrambled eggs” reminiscent of Gen. Muc- Arthur’s finest hour. The first time Bias wore it on a downtown street, a sailor just out of boot camp came to rigid attention and saluted him. TSCW Dean Gives Graduate Lecture Dr. Pauline B.
