THE BATTALION Page 2 College Station, Texas Thursday, May 28, 1964 : sr Reynolds 9 Rap by Mike Reynolds Well, it’s Wednesday night and my turn to stick my nose into somebody’s business for the last tiiyie this semester. I might get through this term and ready for next fall, if I can do my last bit of cramming, if I can pass all of mji finals, if I make enough money this summer to pay for next year, but mainly if no one dislikes this column. Seriously, I would like to apologize to Col. Denzil L. Baker and the Corps of Cadets. I er roneously stated last week that some seniors had been thrown out of school or the Corps of Cadets because of the actions of freeshmen. This is wrong and I stand corrected with my hat off to Col. Baker for his amiable and fair attitude. Speaking of amiable attitudes these days, I sure have noticed that there aren’t many over the state toward the action of the Board of Regents of the Univer sity of Texas. In case finals have been keeping you too busy to read the sports pages of the state’s big dailies, I’ll fill you in on some of the details. The regents appointed a three member committee to study ath letics at the University of Texas and the prospects of becoming an independent. This would obvi ously be the death nell of the Southwest Conference and many people see this as a power move by Royal and Company to get the smaller schools of the conference off their backs concerning the limiting of the number of schol arships given each year. Royal has his points on this subject though. This man is in big, big business, and his pre sent business associates are try ing to press some legislation that would prevent the efficient oper ation of his business. It is only natural that they should study their present relations with the idea of possibly joining anothei group whose policies would be more compatible with their own. Rumors have been flying a- round the state that another con ference will be formed consisting of Texas, Arkansas, Texas Tech, University of Houston and oui own A&M. The distances involv ed in this conference would cause all sports except football and basketball to suffer. Yet foot ball pays for the others and if you don’t have the team and conference to pay for them, you haven’t got anything. Tradition also comes to mind. We would still have our Corps Trips to Houston, only this time to play Cougar Hi instead of Rice, but what would it be like to play these other schools ? What would happen to our yearly trip to the Dallas-Fort Worth area to play football and to crown a sweetheart from TWU ? Once again though, this is trying to run a school with our hearts instead of our heads. If Texas leaves the SWC there will go our biggest traditions anyway. It looks like for once, we must sit by and wait on the University in Austin. If they stay, we will stay but Rice, SMU and TCU will eventually pull the whole group down. If Texas leaves,, we must leave and I don’t think there should be a wet eye over the whole thing. Not when you have everything to gain and very little to loss. Oh well, there is a lot of time between now and December when the showdown comes. Lots of time to think. See you in the fall at Baton Rouge. President Johnson Lauds Soviet Consular Treaty WASHINGTON <A>) _ An his toric U. S. - Soviet consular treaty providing for quick ac cess Jtp, any, Americans jailed in the Soviet Union will be signed in Moscow on June 1. Announcing this Wednesday, President Johnson hailed the pact as a significant step in improv ing U. S.-Soviet relations. He will submit it to the U. S. Sen ate for ratification. Neither the White House or the State Department would re lease the text. State Department officials said the 25-page docu ment would be made public when it goes to the Senate. The treaty provides for re-es tablishing consulates in the two countries. Consuls carry out non- diplomatic duties such as issuing visas and helping businessmen and tourists of their nation. The new agreement, to be signed by U- S. Ambassador Foy D. Kohler and Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei A. Gromyko in Moscow, is unprecedented in two ways: 1. It is the first bilateral, or two-country, treaty ever con cluded between the United States and the Soviet Union. 2. It stipulates that any visit or jailed in the Soviet Union will have access to his consul within four days — setting a specific time limit. Secret imprisonment of Amer icans by the Russians has long been a sore point with Washing ton.

India Faces Great Crisis 6 After Nehru—What Now? 9 MOSCOW _ The time of trouble is rushing fast upon In dia, and he seemed to know it would. Jawaharlal Nehru said in an swer to a question some months ago: “There will never be time for anyone else to create the position that I have had in In dia. The years of fighting the British for Indian independ ence, and then the beginning of freedom, created a place with the people that future leaders will not have time to make.” It was a quiet, almost hum ble expression of the fact that no one can replace Nehru, one of India’s leaders for four dec ades and its only prime minis ter from independence in 1947 until his death Wednesday. Yet the governing of India’s 462 million people, under a sys tem that NehrU made democratic in form but paternalistic in fact, must go on with a new prime minister. Summer^?

The man who temporarily, at least, will try to cope with the problems, Gulzari Lai Nanda, is an exact antithesis of Nehru. Nanda consults his astrologer regularly, believes in the an cient Hindu form of medicine rather than modern science, and generally represents the kind of India that Nehru sought to des troy through modernization. Nehru’s first stroke in Janu ary found Home Minister Nan da the senior member of the Cabinet. But senior leaders of Nehru’s Congress party insured that another man was called into the picture. That man, Lai Bahadur Shas- tri, could now be chosen by the party to become permanent prime minister, but Nanda will try hard to to hang onto the job. A power struggle is in prospect.
