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
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
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
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
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.

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

CHARLESTOWN, W. Va. <A>>—
Mayor John T. Copenhaver ordered
the city’s new police chief, former
Detective Lt. 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.
