The Battalion PAGE 2 .... College Station (Brazos County), Texas Tuesday. October 23, 1956 Top Ten Performance? The staunch few remaining- in the stands at the close o Saturday’s game with TCU saw a display of sportsmanshi] seldom seen among teams in the top ten of the nation. TCU’s Chuck Curtis, powerful quarterback, gave the el bow to at least two freshmen who were trying to carry hirr off the field after the game. Not one of the TCU players al lowed freshmen to carry him off but Curtis was more em phatic. Naturally defeat was tasting pretty bitter to Curtis But quarterbacks, leaders of teams, are expected to show more character and exemplary conduct. Last year TCU was permanently awarded the Southwest Conference Sportsmanship trophy for having won the award three years in a row. 'X' 4? 'a- Along this same line, a letter was received by the Col lege recently containing some pictures showing Texas A&M painted on some building at Rice Institute. Last spring, several spots on this campus were marked with the word RICE in big black letters. Neither school knows who is responsible and certainly whether the painting was done by students from the two schools. What they do know is the incidents certainly don’t fur ther relations between them or enhance their own reputation among the people not even connected with either campus. If we are to continue our efforts in uplifting our repu tation, we cannot participate in or condone any action of this kind. , Letters To The Editor Editor, "'he Battalion Job Interviews The following" Job Interviews will be held at the Placement Office this week: Tuesday DOW CHEMICAL COMPANY will interview majors in chemistry, electrical, mechanical, industrial and civil engineering-, physics, ac counting, business administration for openings in their Texas, Mid land and Louisiana divisions for positions in research, development, design, engineering, pi-oduction, maintenance, and various staff, sales and technical service divi sions.

According to Tinsley, a non-rep- hat is physically qualified to be in he Corps of Cadets and has not ei-ved time in the Armed Ser- ices is a “scroungy” person. I wonder if Tinsley has consider 'd all of the reasons that keep; lon-regs out of the Corps ? Certainly I have not. But I do believe that I have considered ew that he seemingly ignored. Many non-regs are transfer stu- lents. Some are married. A few are graduate students here for the first ime. Others include juniors and seniors who failed to get contracts. And still others, Corps life doesn’t agree with. Would Tinsley propose that all junior transfer students join the Corps of Cadets as freshmen, as well as graduate students ? Does he wish that all married students, regardless of their financial con dition and hours of work, join the Corps ? What about the non-regs whose personality, maturity, or attitude would cause them to make poor Corps members ? Should they be forced into something that violent ly disagrees with them, consequent ly lowering the morale and ef fectiveness of the Corps? Or should they be allowed to at tend the school of their choice, so long as they are tabbed “scroungy” and considered on a lower, unequal plane? If Tinsley fails to get a contract after completing this yeai - , I wonder if he would consider himself a “scroungy” non-reg. Saying, or implying, that every one should belong to the Corps in my opinion, is similar to saying that everyone should have the same major. In either case there is no flexibility to fit the individual. What is good for Charlie may be poison for Jack. In addition Tinsley stated that with the exception of veterans and the handicapped, “the Corps holds the same feeling as a certain high ranking Air Force instructor” and that “the true non-reg can never be in the same class as a cadet.” As to the first statement, I seriously doubt that Tinsley is any Little Man ON CAMPUS by Dick Blbler Famous Oil Geologist Speaks Mere Tonight Dr. James B. Eby, famous oil production geologist, will discuss his recent trip to Russia tonight at 7:30 in the lecture room of Geology Building. He will compare the geologic training of Soviet Scientists to that given in the United States. Eby re turned recently from an extensive visit of the Soviet Union’s oil fields and installations. In 1946, he in vestigated the status of our oil re lations with the Russians in Austria. After graduating from John : Hopkins University in 1918 with a j Bachelor of Arts degree, Eby work- j ed as a geologist with the U. S. Geological Survey. During this'time he continued studying at John Hopkins and was awarded his Doctor of Philosophy degree in 1922. After six years with Shell Oil Co. as the supervisor of all Shell’s geophysical operations in the Texas Gulfcoast region, Eby resigned to become an independent consulting geologist in Houston. Besides his work as a consulting geologist, Eby has also had con siderable experience both in teach ing and organizing geological courses for colleges. He organized the first courses in geology ever taught at Georgetown University, Washington, D. C., in 1925,; and taught there for two years. ANP WHEN IT FALLS 0N THE PAPER lT STAMPS A S16 REP’F."

Some of my best friends are Corps members and certainly they do not hold the feelings that Tinsley states. Concerning the second statement, I wounder how many friends Tinsley Won by expressing such feelings ? Don’t misunderstand me, I be lieve that the Corps offers to the average student, some of the most valuable training that can be got ten. Had I not been a transfer stu dent and a diabetic, I would have certainly joined the Corps and felt the same pride when the Band marches at the football games as I do now. Proud to feel that I be long to one of the finest schools in the world. I am writing this letteT in de fense, not aggression, to some ex pressed opinions that 1 feel can only be described as biased, er roneous and antagonistic.
