incentive to excel in their studies.
Girls would also be a factor in
improved class attendance, in that
class standards could be set higher
and a student would miss more by
cutting a class.
• Women in the Bryan-College
Station area, thixmghout Texas and
in the United States should not
be deprived of a chance to attend
A&M to obtain the college educa
tion they really choose.
Several of the degrees offered
here couldn’t be obtained in most
other U. S. colleges, therefore the
denial of women entrants creates
a huge hardship.
In addition women who reside in
a 50-mile radius of the school have
a tremendous education opportun
ity almost on their very doorsteps
—but they are turned away. Prom
inent in this category are wives of
students and daughters and wives
of faculty and staff members.
• The A&M Consolidated School
system produces some of the top
students in the state of Texas,
many of them girls. TheSe wo
men are forced to attend other
colleges, at far greater expense,
if they choose further education.
• Since A&M is a state, tax-
supported school, the taxpayers
of Texas are not getting the most
from their tax money when their
own daughters are not granted the
privilege of attending A&M.
If A&M was a privately sup
ported school, a no-coed policy
would be more understandable.
The policy would even be satis
factory if the taxpayers who are
paying their money could have a
voice in the matter through a
• Admission of coeds would
without a doubt greatly boost col
lege enrollment. A&M hasn’t ap
preciably increased its enrollment
since after World War II, while
other state schools have grown
tremendously—some by as much
as 50 per cent.
Such an increase in A&M’s en
rollment would also be of great
advantage in the school’s public
image and probably would assist
the school in securing grants and
other funds from various industrial
and governmental sources.

were added to the lines of regis
trants each semester fighting for
positions in choice sections?
Other various facilities would
be greatly strained by the addition
of women to the student body.
College secretaries are constantly
filing complaints about restroom
accommodations in classroom
buildings, but what would the situ
ation be with full-time women stu
Accomodations, many of them
very costly, would also have to be
made to provide for female phys
ical education instruction, social
activities and dining facilities.
• A&M is known the world over
for being an all-male school, and
thus attracts many students be
cause of this trait. In addition to
attracting students, the college
also is viewed admirably by the
public because of this fact.
The no-girls policy is a constant
source of attraction to campus vis
itors, and in the long run a defin
ite publicity plus for the school.
• Such a policy has also tended
to bind A&M’s former students
(Continued From Page 1)
• The word “university” in
A&M’s name would be a great
prestige factor for the school. With
this added prestige would follow
a higher quality professor, addi
tional industrial and governmental
grants and a more intellectual at
Also A&M would find many of
its top professers would not leave
for other schools and higher sal
aries. No title ranks higher than
“university,” but as long as A&M
remains a college, an inferiority
complex will accompany the school,
its students and members of its
faculty and staff.
Especially important in this list
of advantages is the fact that A&M
would be in line for many addi
tional grants and other funds.
Many attractive grants escape
A&M because of the word “col
lege,” that would otherwise quite
likely be awarded the school.
• The word “university” in
A&M’s name would also allow the
school to enter numerous associa
tions that are open to schools of
university status. Membership in
these organizations, as can be eas
ily seen, would greatly aid A&M
in obtaining top-quality students

The Association of Former Stu

• Many women admittedly go
to college seeking a husband, not
to get a higher education. The
admission of women to A&M
would greatly subject Ahe college
to this type of woman student—
not the type who is genuinely in
terested in her academic studies.
A&M’s reputation among the
state’s high school female popula
tion would indicate that many
would desire to attend school here
for that very reason.
• Most girls would prefer to go
to college in a large city that could

tivities. The Bryan-College Sta

for male students, would probably
not be satisfactory to many women

into thousands of dollars.
• In addition to the tangible
changes that would require huge
expenses, countless other changes
would disrupt the school’s func
All school songs would no longer
be adequate, yells would have to be
changed, brass worn by the Corps
of Cadets would have to be both
redesigned and remade and even
patches worn on cadet uniforms
would be out-of-date.
And lastly, the Aggie senior
ring, one of any student’s most
prized possessions, would no long

action by the state legislature.
This 1 action, of course, would be
paid for by the taxpayers of the
• A&M, for many years after
any change, would lose its iden
tity in the eyes of many people.
As well as citizens of the state,
A&M is is also well known in al
most every foreign country.
After a change, these people
would, for a long time, refuse to
accept the change in their minds.
Thus college prestige, enrollment
and success could possibly suffer.
