the YMCA at the beginning of the 1959-60
school year. They moved into their new
quarters on the third floor last week. As

Assistant News' Editor
The Placement Office, Office of
Jtudent Employment and Loans
and Short Course Office have been
in their new location on the third
floor of the YMCA Building since
* early in March and are extremely
proud of their new quarters, ac
cording to Wendell R. Horsley,
director of the Placement Office.
* The offices include 10 interview
ing and conference rooms for em
ployment recruiters, the three sep
arate offices and a new informa
tion library.
Horsley explained that the
Placement Office personnel are es
pecially proud of the new library.
He said that the manner in which
material is displayed, on a peg
hoard with racks, is one of the
most unique methods he has ever
seen. Horsley also expressed the
belief that this method might pos
sibly be the only one in existence
at the present time.
Horsley also stated that the new
furnishings, special equipment and
a special communication system
between the separate offices and
the interviewing and conference
rooms were a great help to both
the recruiters and the students ap
plying for interviews.
The new offices will make it
much easier for the approximately
450 company representatives who
visit the campus in quest of grad
uating seniors each year, he said.
In addition to these personal
representatives, another 1,000 com
panies solicit students by mail.
Horsley stated that these figures
revealed that approximately 7,000
interviews are conducted every
year, by mail or in person.
Horsley concluded by saying,
“We are especially grateful to the
administration for our new quar
ters. We are now proud to invite
businessmen to our offices and no
longer have to be apologetic for
the condition of our quarters. The
new offices also make it much
easier for our boys to make a
good impression and sell them
selves to the recruiters.”
As of yet, nothing has been de
cided about what will become of
the former Placement Office on
the second floor of the YMCA
Building, said Horsley.

Improving Income
Dependent on Work,
Speaker Tells 155
Success of co-operatives in
achieving the goal of improving
member income is directly related
to performance of the board of
directors, members of the eighth
annual Agricultural Co-Operative
Managers School were told Mon
day through today here.
The speaker, Robert W. Cooper,
Texas Agricultural Extension Ser
vice economist in farm organiza
tion, said the personnel the direc
tors employ and the policies they
formulate are direct indications of
their effectiveness in co-op man
He said the major responsibility
of hired management is to direct
the actual operation of the co-op
and advise and assist the board.
Usually, the manager is the best
informed individual regarding the
needs of the organization.
Makes Decisions
The most important thing that
a hoard does is to make sound
judgment decisions on significant
matters, Cooper told the group.
The co-operative managers
school, which this year reached a
new attendance high — 155 — was
sponsored by the Texas Agricul
tural Extension Service, Houston
Bank for Co-Operatives and the
Texas Federation of Co-Operatives.
Directors Included
In the past, the school has been
directed toward co-op managers.
But this year, directors also Were
invited and were the subject of
Cooper’s talk.
Reagan Brown, rural sociologist
with the extension service, out
lined self-help programs under
way by 920 organized Texas com
munities, which heretofore were
threatened with economic oblivion.
About 213 of these communities
are participating in a state-wide
improvement plan sponsored by
electric companies and the exten
sion service.
He said the program has four
main objectives — improved farm
income, better homes and farms,
better health and services and in
creased social activity.
Citing the industrialization trend
in Texas, Brown said only about
10 per cent of the population now
lives in the country and three out
of five persons in rural areas do
not farm. He predicted that
around 400 small towns will “dry
up” and fail to progress unless
co-operatives and citizens forget
their differences.
“Co-ops need the community
more than the community needs
the co-ops,” he said. “If a town is
asleep and its citizens wrangle
among themselves, they will be left
Church Holds Together
The sociologist said that about
the only thing holding some rural
communities- together today is the
rural church.
Dr. A. B. Wooten, associate pro
fessor in the Department of Agri
cultural Economics, described con
ditions if production controls were
removed from the American farm
Carryover of surplus, govern
ment-held stocks would be sig
nificantly reduced, he said.
Wooten said his talk was not an
endorsement or an analysis of any
proposed farm program.
‘Public Dog House’
The nation’s agriculture is in
the “public dog house” as the re
sult of bad public relations, Dr.
R. D. Lewis, director of the Texas
Agricultural Experiment Station,
told the group.
President Earl Rudder gave a
welcoming address at the school’s
opening session, and John E.
Hutchison, director of the Texas
Agricultural Extension Service,
presented certificates of course
