RIVE-1 m WNS Da) PRO COEDS (Continued From Page 1) 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 state-wide election. • 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. ANTI COEDS (Continued From Page 1) 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 dents. 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 PRO CHANGE (Continued From Page 1) title, “university.” • 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 mosphere. 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 and professor's.

The Association of Former Stu dents provides tremendous sums of money annually, mainly through the giving of men who look back with pleasure to their years at A&M and the fact that they were more interested in obtaining a col lege education than in advancing their social standing with the fair er sex. • 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 pi'ovide a variety of off-time ac tivities. The Bryan-College Sta tion area, even though adequate for male students, would probably not be satisfactory to many women scholars. ANTI CHANGE (Continued From Page 1) of all changes would easily run into thousands of dollars. • In addition to the tangible changes that would require huge expenses, countless other changes would disrupt the school’s func tioning. 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 er be adequate or sufficient. • A change would require costly action by the state legislature. This 1 action, of course, would be paid for by the taxpayers of the state. • 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. THE BATTALION Wednesday, May.9, 1962 College.
