Page 2 THE BATTALION College Station, Texas Tuesday, May 10, 1960 Around the SWC By Alan Payne Southern Methodist University In a column bowing out after a year’s service and turning the paper to a new staff, a columnist for the SMU Campus recalled the following events that had occur red during his tenure: a Japan ese flag flying in front of an ROTC federal inspection, an alli gator in a dormitory shower, Dresden being the capital of China and St. Augustine invent ing frass. * * * Also, a candidate for the presi dency of the SMU student body proposed to reduce tuition rates by selling bricks acquired- by tearing down class room build ings. By borrowing money from the students, he promised to give them a 150 per cent return on their activity fees. Asked where he would get the money to pay off these loans, he replied, “Don’t worry, we only owe it to our selves.” Texas University ' The president of TU’s Student Assn, has been asked to be re moved from office by a petition filed stating that he violated campaigning regulations in the recent campus elections held in Austin in which he was elected. The president stated that he had done “nothing to be ashamed of” while a petitioner said that the petition was filed to “call attention to general student opinion which has led to widely spread dishonest practices in stu dent government elections.” # * * A freshman coed suffered a most humiliating accident as she was being honored at a tradi tional engagement shower. Following the shower, the coed slipped and fell on the steps and was forced to spend the night in the Student Health Center. Her mother answered all replies by stating “I’m confident that she will be all right.” * * * Also, a TU student is currently engaged in a desperate fight for the life of a friend. A prisoner being held in Com munist Sukarno is scheduled to die any minute now and the stu dent is doing everything he pos sibly can to save him through numerous letters to prison and civil officials. The two boys became friends in college in Floi’ida before the Ko rean conflict and remained friends throughout the action. The captured youth was caught in May of 1958 and accused of carrying arms for rebels. Texas Christian University TCU’s Samuel E. Anderson Chapter of Angel Flight, an AF- ROTC drill team, has been award ed the Purdue Cup as the best angel flight unit in the nation. The trophy marked the first the TCU .group has won.

From 1943-47, Holland served as an officer in the United States Navy on destroyer duty. After World War II, he worked for one year as junior engineering for the Burlington Mills Corp. In 1952, Holland assumed a po sition as instructor in the De partment of Chemical Engineer ing at A&M and in 1953 became assistant professor in the depart ment, simultaneously receiving an M.S. in chemical engineering.

During the summer of 1955, Holland worked in the Technical Service Division of Humble Oil and Refining Co. and, during the following summer, he was em ployed in the Unit Operations Section, Oak Ridge Institute of Nuclear Studies. In the profession, Holland is chairman of the A&M College of Texas-Baylor University Section of the American Chemical Society for 1959-60, and is a member of the executive committee of the South Texas , section of the Amer ican Institute of Chemical Engi neers. He is a member of Sigma Xi, Phi Kappa Phi and in the American . Society of Electrical Engineers. Underdeveloped countries in the world, where milk is in ex tremely short supply, may soon be whipping a protein deficiency disease of children by using cot tonseed flour as a milk substi tute. Dr. Carl M. Lyman, head of the Department of Biochemistry and Nutrition, told members of the 28th annual Oil Mill Oper ators Short Course held last weekend at the College that de velopment of the milk substitute as a human protein source was a significant step in nutrition and in the cottonseed products in dustry. He said that Guatemala, a short milk supply country, is trying the substitute with good results in a program to boost the nutritional level of its children. The substi tute is known as incaporina. Incaporina is a combination of 38 per cent cottonseed flour, 29 per cent corn, 29 per cent sor ghum grain and a smattering of the necessary vitamins and min erals. It is mixed with water to make a drink. Children relish it, Lyman said, and the cost is a mere penny a glass in Guatemala. The nutritionist said children often come down with a protein deficiency ailment known as kwashiorkor when they are un able to get enough milk. The di sease is responsible for many deaths. Lyman predicted that in the near future, cottonseed, protein will become an important human food in many areas of the world where animal protein sources are scarce. He told the group that cotton seed flour, to be fit for human consumption, must have all the hulls removed and be of high quality. Heading the incaporina project in Guatemala is Dr. N. S. Scrim shaw, director of the Institute of Nutrition of Central America and Panama. Discussing livestock nutrition, Lyman said is has became in creasingly apparent that the un availability of lysine, an essen tial amino acid, is a primary fac tor in the feeding value of cotton seed meal. When commercial ly sine is added to hog rations, for example, meal mediochre in qual ity can be converted to an ex cellent source of protein. He said that commercial lysine is still too expensive to be prac tical, although the price is trend ing downward. FLY TO DALLAS 8$ 1 1 r W CONTINENTAL % AIRUHES!

The Oil Mill Operators Short Course was conducted by the De partment of Chemical Engineer ing in co-operation with the Tex as Cottonseed Crushers Assn, and the International Oil Mill Superintendents Assn. Another speaker, H. D. Reeves of the Plains Co-Operative Oil Mill at Lubbock, -said his firm uses asphalt pavement as a base on which to store cottonseed out in the open. The asphalt is slightly high in the middle for drainage purposes. If possible, green seed should not be stored outside, he said. When inside storage is not avail able, green seed should be placed at the end of the pile where it can be worked first. Outside stored seed should be packed and depressions smoothed out to shed rain, Reeves said. A cooling system should be installed to avoid seed heating. W. B. Harris of the Cottonseed Products Research Laboratory y here discussed aeration studies and described how seed pile re- j sistance to air flow varies with depth. OnCftps with MaxShuIman (Author of “I Was a Teen-age Dwarf,” “The Many Loves of Dohie Gillis" etc.) EUROPE MADE SIMPLE: NO. 2 'Last week we discussed En^and, the first stop on the tour of Europe that every American college student is going to make this summer. Today we will discuss your next stop, France—or the Pearl of the Pacific, as it is generally called. To get from England to France, one greases one’s body and swims the English Channel. Similarly, to get from France to Spain, one greases one’s body and slides down the Pyrenees. As you can see, the most important single item to take to Europe is a valise full of grease. No, I am wrong. The most important single item to take to Europe is a valise full of Marlboro Cigarettes. Oh, what a piece of work is Marlboro! If you think flavor went out when filters came in, treat yourself to a Marlboro. The filter works perfectly, and yet you get the full, zestful, edifying taste of the choice tobaccos that precede the filter. This remarkable feat of cigarette engineering was achieved by Marlboro’s research team—Fred Softpack and Walter Fliptop—and I, for one, am grateful. But I digress. We were speaking of France—or the Serpent of the Nile, as it is popularly termed. First let us briefly sum up the history of France. The nation was discovered in 1492 by Madame Guillotine. There followed a series of costly wars with Schleswig-Holstein, the Cleveland Indians, and Captain Dreyfus. Stability finally came to this troubled land with, the coronation of Marshal Foch, who married Lorraine Alsace and had three children: Flopsy, Mopsy, and Charlemagne. This later became known as the Petit Trianon. Marshal Foch—or the Boy Orator of the Platte, as he was . affectionately called—was succeeded by Napoleon who intro duced shortness to France. Until Napoleon, the French were the tallest nation in Europe. After Napoleon, most Frenchmen wore able to walk comfortably under card tables. This later became known as the Hunchback of Notre Dame. Napoleon was finally exiled to Elba where he made the famous statement, “Able was I ere I saw Elba,” which reads the same whether you spell it forwards or backwards. You can also spell Marlboro backwards—Ofobiram. Do not, however, try to smoke Marlboro backwards because that undoes all the efficacy of the great Marlboro filter. After Napoleon’s death the French people fell into a great depression, known as the Louisiana Purchase. For over a cen tury everybody sat around moping and refusing his food. This torpor was not lifted until Eiffel built his famous tower, which made everybody giggle so hard that today France is the gayest country in all Europe. Each night the colorful natives gather at sidewalk cafes and shout “Oo-la-la” as Maurice Chevalier promenades down the Champs Elysees swinging his Malacca cane. Then, tired but happy, everyone goes to the Louvre for bowls of onion soup. The principal industry of France is cashing travelers checks. Well sir, I guess that’s all you need to know about France. Next week we’ll visit the Land of the Midnight Sun—Spain. ©i960 Max Shulwan Next week, this week, every week, the best of the filter cigarettes is Marlboro, the best of the twn-filters is Philip Morris; both available in soft pack or flip-top box.
