Contracts were also awarded for Post Office Limits Saturday Service In Economy Move New Saturday morning Post Of fice schedules go into effect next Monday according to Ernest Gregg, College Station Postmaster. Window service at the main of fice will be limited to one con solidated stamp and parcel post service on Saturday mornings.

The move is designed to save $12.7 million dollars. dormitory equipment and furniture at A&M, new furnishings at Ar lington State, laboratory equip ment at Tarleton and campus im provements at Prairie View. Management Will Depend On Computers Data processing is becoming one of the master keys of successful management of colleges and uni versities, the College and Univer sity Machine Records Conference learned here Monday. Jack R. Woolf, president of Ar lington State College, said comput ers and other electronic equipment will soon become a necessity to save time and simplify manage ment complexities. “Schools that are efficient in management will find it much easier to survive,” Woolf pointed out. “Grants and other funds will go to those institutions which can demonstrate efficiency.” The college president was the keynote speaker at the opening session of the conference at A&M University. About 400 persons representing more than 150 uni versities in the United States and Canada are attending the three-day session. Topics range from data process ing for educational management to automatic scheduling and regis tration in schools. Colleges and universities have been “archaic” in management methods and have “paid attention to nearly all areas of society ex cept our own,” Woolf said. He described data processing as the best method of securing accur ate, quick information for manage ment. And university presidents should approve and encourage the system, Woolf said. Data processing, the speaker ex plained, improves communication among departments of a school. It can compile grade reports and show how each student stands in his studies. Woolf emphasized that electro nic equipment “is not turning each student into a number and is not de-personalizing him.” Data processing at Arlington has been used to study teaching loads and class sizes. The result is higher teacher salaries and im proved classroom utilization, he said. Woolf recommended that data processing answers be as simple as possible for university heads, such as the president. They do not have time to read elaborate re ports. Detailed reports should go to second and third eschelon per sonnel, Woolf maintained. Data processing must be “sold to faculty and staff, who are still inclined to be suspicious,” he con tinued. Woolf urged creativity and im agination in setting up processing systems. “Data processing has much to offer educational institutions. Let’s get with it,” he concluded. A main attraction on Tuesday’s program was Robert Fano’s re port on Project MAC. Fano, elec trical engineering professor at Massachusetts Institute of Techno logy, will transmit data from the conference headquarters to MIT in Massachusetts. A calculation will be made on machines there and transmitted back to the meeting, all in a matter of seconds. A Texas-sized jigsaw puzzle will be fitted together Friday on the A&M University campus as indus trial arts students from 31 high schools assemble a 1,250 square foot building. Industrial arts students have built sections of the structure and will bring them here for assembly as a highlight of the Texas Indus trial Arts Student Fair Friday and Saturday. Approximately 1,000 students are expected for the fair. “The building sections can’t measure over 4x8 feet, so they’ll fit into a pickup,” W. A. Mayfield said. He is an industrial arts teacher in the Bryan schools, an A&M doctoral student in industrial education and state advisor for the Texas Industrial Arts Student Association. The exhibition hall designed by Thomas Faubion, a junior in Bryan’s Stephen F. Austin High School and a student of Mayfield’s, won a $1,000 award. Faubion plans to use the money to attend A&M. Corps Boosts Champ Fund Project Champ got back on the track Monday afternoon. Head Yell leader Mike Marlow held an organizational meeting with out fit commanders pledging the sup port of their units toward the fund set up by The Battalion to buy basketball coach Shelby Met calf a new car. Companies G-l and E-2 and Sqd. 10 have already turned in their contributions but other than these three units, the students have showed very little interest. Sqd. 10 leads with $42.32. The slow-moving project ap pears to have suffered from lack or organization. It is hoped that the renewed effort promised by campus leaders will boost the fund toward its desired goal. May 15 is set as the current deadline, coinciding with the Ag gie All-Sports Banquet. All contributions should be turned in to The Battalion office in the basement of the YMCA. The building to be constructed on a lot opposite the G. Rollie White Coliseum will be taken apart almost immediately and shipped to San Antonio for erection in June on the Teen Fair of Texas grounds. The industrial arts fair is being held at A&M for the fifth consecu tive year. Mayfield said 24 to 31 students from a dozen high schools will erect the exhibition hall here. “That way we hope we won’t have too much help but will have enough to get the job done,” May- field said. The exhibition hall will be erected in June at the Teen Fair of Texas grounds in San Antonio by a crew including Mayfeld and Ronald Foy, industrial arts teacher at Ballinger. By GLENN DROMGOOLE Managing Editor “The' Corps will grow if people will have the right atti tude. If everybody doesn’t put out, we won’t have anything.” Those were the predictions concerning the future of A&M Uni versity's Corps of Cadets by the man chosen to head the organiza tion next year, Neil L. Keltner. The Army cadet, a junior from Student Senate Election Filing Now Underway Filing opened Monday for the Student Senate elections in the programs office of the Memorial Student Center. Wayne Smith, election commis sion advisor, said these elections are “The most confusing of them all.” He said that filing is gen erally the most confusing part of the whole procedure. Smith added that people usually don’t know how to file and that it was hard to explain just what they were running for. There will be 12 Student Senate and 15 election commission posi tions open for the May 15 elec tions. The Student Senate positions open are the representatives from the Colleges of Arts and Sciences, Agriculture, Engineering and Vet erinary Medicine. Each college sends a sophomore, a junior and. a senior representative. For the election commission there will be five positions from each of the three upper classes. The dean of the graduate school will appoint the graduate student representative to the Student Senate. Smith said that in the past this election has received the least amount of voter interest of any of the school elections, but added, “I’m sure there will be a better turnout this year because of the increased civilian activity.” Smith said the voting machines will be marked by colleges, and that each voter will vote for only the representative from his school in his class. Lansing, Mich, majoring in in dustrial distribution, continued, “If we can get the co-operation from the men who will be in command positions next year, we will grow.” Chosen as Deputy Corps Com mander was H. Hale Burr from Vidor. The number two man is an Air Force cadet majoring in economics. Keltner and Burr noted, “The Corps has come through an awful lot this year. I think we’ve shown everyone that we can come out on top.” Named to head the First Brigade was Jerome Rektorik, an econo mics student from Corpus Christi. Rob Nalley from Dallas was selected commander of the Second Brigade. He is studying civil en gineering. Next year’s Third Brigade com mander will be Jim Bourgeois from New Braunfels, a finance student. David Franklin from Houston will head the First Wing, while Tommy Harrison from Baytown will have command of the Second Wing. Both are business adminis tration students. The new commanders will not officially assume their positions until Final Review on May 23, but as Keltner put it, “There is a lot to be done before then.” This year’s Colonel of the Corps, Paul A. Dresser Jr., said of the selectees, “I think all the boys will do a real fine job next year.” Dresser’s recommendations for the two top positions were sent to the Trigon, after which Keltner and Burr were interviewed by the Corps Commandant, Col. Denzil L. Baker, Dean of students James P. Hannigan and President Earl Rud der. Battalion Staff Proves It’s Human One of those rare, freak occur rences took place in our April 22 issue. The staff of The Bat talion, proving they really are human, made a mistake. The picture labeled Robert J. Phillips on the front page of that issue is actually Dr. Leonard R. Burgess, the new Business Ad ministration professor.
