THE BATTALION Thursday, June 16, 1960 College Station, Texas Page 5 Ag. Eco. and Sociology Department To Offer New Curriculum Sept. 1 The Department of Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology will offer a new curriculum, food distribution, effective Sept. 1. Dr. G. M. Watkins, dean of the School of Agriculture, said the course will be offered within the agricultural administration option in the Department of Agricultural Economics and Rural Sociology. He said representatives of the college met recently with food in dustry leaders and reviewed the proposed food distributioii curric ulum. Texas’ Rapid Growth The rapid growth of the food distribution industry in Texas, particularly the upsurge of super market food stores during the past decade, has opened many oppor tunities for college graduates with specialized training in food distri bution, Dean Watkins said. A&M College, he said, has the facilities and staff to adequately meet this educational need, thus mutually benefiting the students, the food distribution industry and citizens of the state. . .college offers. . “The college offers a wide vari ety of areas of study suited to the food industry, which ranges through plant and animal science, food and fiber technology, business administration and agricultural economics and sociology,” Watkins said. Another feature at A&M which facilitates a food distribution cur riculum is the research program conducted by the Texas Agricul tural Experiment Station of the A&M College System. The pro gram includes research in food and fiber production, processing and marketing, as well as consumer ac ceptance, preference and motiva tional research. Varied Courses Courses of study included in the new food distribution curriculum, Dean Watkins said, comprise standard basic college subjects and agricultural economics courses and also horticulture, meats, poultry products, dairy products, adver tising, social psychology, sales management, finance and business management. He said the Department of Agri cultural Economics and Rural So ciology at A&M has pioneered teaching of the business and hu man side of the total agricultural industry since 1919. “The food distribution curricu lum constitutes another step i: progress,” Dean Watkins said.

But fence-sitting for grown-ups is neither safe nor fun! A man has to take a stand. He must let the world know his convictions. He must live them! The principles in which we believe can perish while we dawdle uncommitted, uncertain or un churched. Behind the iron curtain men who are deter mined to overthrow freedom and faith hide neither their communism nor their atheism. Here in America on a Sunday morning; no man can afford to sit on the fence IF he believes in God, and in the right to worship Him in the Church of his choice. THE CHURCH FOR ALL . . . ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is ihe greatest factor on earth for the building of character and good citizenship. It is a. storehouse of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilization can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regularly and support the Church. They are: (I) For his own sake. (2) For his children’s sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regularly and read your Bible daily.

RATLIFF Associated Press Sports Writer Oklahoma is making an excel lent recruiting stab into Texas, getting all-state football players right and left. The way the Soon- ers are going the entire starting lineup in 1961 may be Texans in stead of nine or ten. Little has been said by South west Conference members about the Sooner raids although some of the boys were under letters of in tent. A far cry from only a few years ago when there were threats and recriminations when Oklahoma came up with star schoolboy pros pects. Remember Bobby Boyd and Mike McClellan? Southern Methodist hit the roof when Oklahoma grab bed Boyd, the Garland star who had signed with SMU. McClellan went to Oklahoma after a year as a freshman at Baylor. The roar of the Baptists has only recently died down. What’s the reason for the change in attitude? Simple: Okla homa got beat. Texas has licked the Sooners the past two years. Oklahoma also lost to Northwest ern, Notre Dame and Nebraska. The bone of contention was that Southwest Conference schools were being beaten by the boys they felt they were entitled to. Also, Okla homa, riding high, wide and hand some, was giving Texas colleges a condescending look. The germ of jealousy broke its hounds. It’s all changed now. The Texas colleges are doing just, as well if not better than Oklahoma and they also know that the Texas boys Ok lahoma had been getting, were no better than the boys the Texas colleges kept for themselves. Per haps Oklahoma had been doing more with material—better coach ing?—and the Southwest Confer ence cpaches are just catching up. 16.000 Visit A&M Campus During May Commencement, comissioning ex ercises, Mother’s Day and other scheduled activities during May at tracted more than 16,000 visitors to the campus P. L. Downs Jr., of ficial college greeter, announced recently. An estimated 10,000 persons vis ited the campus for graduation and coirimissioning programs. Attendance at conferences, short courses, class reunions and other scheduled meetings during May totalled 16,700 Downs reported. During the period from June 1, 1959, to June 1, 1960, more than 60.000 persons visited the campus for Parent’s Day, commencement 1 , Military Day, conferences, class reunions and other scheduled meet ings. The college had 652,276. visitors on the campus for scheduled meet ings and activities during the 11- year period that ended June 1, 1960. Dr. Cronk Tells € of C Directors OfWindTunnel The United States had a first in supersonic air travel, but it wasn’t intended to be that way, Dr. A. E. Cronk, head of the Department of Aeronautical Engineering, told members of the Bryan-College Sta tion Board of Directors Tuesday morning. Cronk made the statement in connection with explaining the op eration of the new $600,000 wind tunnel on the campus which is ex pected to go into full operation next month. The first in supersonic air travel was when one of the first super sonic airplanes turned sideways in the air. Cronk said the incident took place possibly because modi fications made on the plane had not been tested in a wind tunnel. The new tunnel at A&M will be sued to test scale airplane models in order that the real plane’s per formance in the air can be esti mated. Faults which could cause death to the crew and passengers of the plane if they cause the plane to be destroyed can possibly be de tected and corrected through the wind tunnel research, Cronk said. Although modification to the old wind tunnel were completed in 1957, the past three years have been spent in testing the facility, determining its ability and accur acy and detecting any flaws, Cronk said. The only educational institution operated tunnel in the Southwest, Cronk said the tunnel is one of the three of its kind in the U. S. The other two are located on the coast and Cronk expects the facil ity will be used extensively by clients in between the other two facilities. .<, The wind tunnel’s first job'will be for Temco of Dallas," Cronk told the (directors. Graduate students will use the tunnel for educational purposes, he said. FATHERS m TOR OUR ... FINE FOOD L SUPER SAVMI6S -GROCERIES- CKISCO 3-lb.
