Israel charges that Eichmann, fhief of the Gestapo’s Jewish Af fairs Section, was the man who carried out Nazi Germany’s cam- laign to exterminate European lewry. The evidence introduced by lach showed Eichmann even at tempted to interfere with a hotel in the neutral enclave of Lichten- ttein in.

Snyder High School dominated the Texas Industrial Arts Fair for the second consecutive year here Saturday, winning top honors in five of fourteen divisions in the Industrial Arts Project competi tion. Snyder strengthened its posi tion with a large share of the first, second and third place ribbons awarded to winners in 60 sub-di visions of the program. A strong showing was made by Houston area schools as Spring Branch, Lamar and Jones high schools won a total of five division awards. Other division awards went to Victoria, Odessa and Ball (Galveston) high schools. David Odum of Odessa was awarded a trophy for the outstand ing project of the fair, a 14-foot outboard motor boat. A plaque for the best creative design went to Knox Kennedy, Milby High of Houston, for his model home entry. John Mandel, a junior high school student at La Marque, re ceived a plaque for the most in genious project, an electronic game. More than 500 students repre senting 40 schools participated in the fair, which is sponsored by the Texas Industrial Arts Association. The fair closed Saturday night with an awards banquet. The principal speaker was Dean Fred J. Benson of the School of Engi neering. Benson told the assembly that craftsmanship of the caliber exhibited at the fair is in the Amei'ican tradition of skilled ma nipulation of the tools and ma terials of industry. He challenged the students to set high goals for themselves and to be prepared to Vinson To Discuss ‘Fountain Of Youth’ Dr. David B. Vinson will deliver a graduate lecture tomorrow at 8 p.m. in the Biological Sciences Lecture Room. The speaker is director of the Texas Academy for the Advance ment of Life Sciences, in Houston. His subject will be “Fountain of Youth—Fact or Fiction?” Medical science’s comparatively recent increased concern with the problems of growing old has pro duced some hopeful reports, Dr. Wayne C. Hall, Dean of the Grad uate School, said today in an nouncing the lecture. “Although Russian scientists appear to be the most optimistic regarding chances for prolonging life and cushioning old age, Amer ican scientists are mare pessimistic about finding a medical ‘Foun tain of Youth.’ Most scientists do agree that aging is not neces sarily something that is inevit able—that certain changes are as sociated with deficiency diseases or metabolic abnormalities and that there is hope for unlocking at the cellular level the reasons for aging. Regardless of the cause of aging it is an accepted fact that more persons are living longer and this poses a social- economic problem, not only at present but a problem that will become more acute with time.” Vinson has had a distinguished career in many aspects of aging in living systems. He received his AB degree from UCLA in 1941 and his PhD from the University of London in 1952 in the fields of psycho-biology, neuropsychology and psychology. Vinson has had experience as a clinical psychol ogist for the Air Force, Glasier- Rissler Clinic and William Beau mont General Hospital at El Paso, and Baylor University College of Medicine. He has served as a research psychologist at the Uni versity of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston; the Institute of Psychi atry, University of London, and Southwestern Respiratory Center at Houston, as well as a consultant to many private and Federal hos pitals and clinics. At present he is Director of Texas Academy for the Advancement of Life Sciences. He served as a delegate to the White House Conference on Ag ing, the International Conference of Gerontology and is a member of the Governor’s Advisory Com mittee on Aging. He is a membe- of many professional and learned societies including the American and British Psychological Associa tions, the Gerontologic Society and the American Academy of Psychotherapists, and has pub lished extensively neuropsychol ogy, clinical psychology and psy chological decline. pay the price required to attain excellence in their chosen fields.

Bob Hunt, Jr., widely known in the state for his Cham ber of Commerce and citizenship activities, has been named director of Century Study at A&M. The System Board of Directors authorized on April 22 the organization of a long range planning study, called the “Century Study.” to determine goals to guide the college through the next 15 years of its first century of service to Texas, the nation and the world. Out of the study will also emerge methods for the attain ment of goals recommended for the institution by a lay citi zen Century Council committee and the college faculty and staff Committe on Aspirations. The plan is aimed at devel- 4 oning to the fullest, in line with needs of the state, dur ing the period between this, its 85th year, and its 100th anniversary 'in 1976. About two years will be devoted to making the long range plans. Hunt said the Board of Directors will appoint a lay citizen council of 100 members to be known as the Century Council. Members will not be officially connected with the college but will represent a cross section of Texas interests. “The task before the council will be that of surveying the college and its components and seeking to discover that service roles the institution should prepare to play in assisting citizens of the state meet various challenges confront ing them over the next 15 years,” Hunt said. He said nominations for mem bership on the Century Council may be made from now until July 1. They should be submitted to the Board of Directors in care of the Director of Century Study at A&M College. The Century Council will begin its study in a series of meetings to get underway after Sept. 1 of this year. A written report of the council’s findings and recommenda tions will be presented June 1, 1962, to the College Board of Di rectors. Functioning concurrently with the Century Council will be the col lege facuty and staff Committee On Aspirations to guide the con tinuing improvement of the school’s services to Texas. This in ternal effort will be administered by a committee appointed by Presi dent Earl Rudder. Carr, Brandt Win In Annual Math Contest Travis C.
