Aggie Voters Choose Senators
In General Election Yesterday
Burchard Goes
To ACEJ Meet
In Chicago
Donald D. Burchard, head
of the Journalism Depart
ment, returned Tuesday from
Chicago where he attended
the fall meeting of the Amer
ican Council on Education for Jour
nalism, of which he is a member.
ACEJ is the highest ranking ac
creditation organization for jour
nalism in the nation. A team vis
ited the A&M Journalism Depart
ment last year and accredited it in
two sequences, Community Journal
ism and Agricultural Journalism.
Final plans were laid at the
meeting for accreditation teams to
visit 19 schools in the nation and
examine their journalism pro
grams. The Council plans to visit
all the schools in the nation that
have requested to be visited by the
April meeting of the Council. If
this is accomplished they will have
visited 59 schools in the past year.
ACEJ appointed a committee to
appraise the system of accredita
tion by sequences and determine
whether it should be used in the
future. A report on findings will
be made at the April meeting.

sion Service has developed a new
driver training course for person

The program will offer instruc
tion on such topics as defensive

students through every phase of
driver training, giving demonstra
tions of actual training techniques
that can be put to immediate use
in their own companies.
“Students will get plenty of ac
tive participation during the driv-
