THE BATTALION Page 2 College Station, Texas Friday, October 16, 1964 BATTALION EDITORIALS Brave New World Arrives At A&M A&M means many things to many people. But to its students this institution is beginning to be come an autocratic, inhuman, computer-run Big Brother which sees all, knows all and does little. To use a public relations term—its upwards communi cations are stagnant and negligent. With the addition of data processing, nuclear engineer ing and a proposed space laboratory the scope of A&M’s re search has completely outrun the average student’s ability to know and feel a part of what’s being done on his own campus. There was once a time when students knew almost every one here. Those days are permanently gone. There was once a time when A&M was a way of thinking—when profes sors considered each student as an individual. Now Aggies are numbers on a punch card. Not a face but a chair num ber—not a human being with individual problems but a sta tistic. Orders and policy changes are sent down through a well- oiled chain of command with nary a moment’s thought to their eventual impression upon the lowly student. If he has a question to ask it is always directed at “Them”. And questions to “Them” nearly always meet with the same answer, “The order came from above and I only fol low orders.” Not ALL orders come from the ambiguous hierarchy but it is the most convenient excuse to get rid of those who dare to fight the machine. Emphasis on growth is the main villian in the “New Deal.” Misunderstanding, confusion and apprehension are all a part of any expanding organization, but they can be mini mized if the human factor is considered. Sound Off Editor, The Battalion: On this beautiful Monday morn ing, my thoughts concerning last Saturday night’s alleged football contest between A&M and U.S.C. have mellowed somewhat. How ever, I still feel constrained to make the suggestion that A&M cease beating around the bush and apply for admission in the Lone Star Coonference. On sec ond thought, we might have trouble getting in there—Texas A&I has scored 109 points against their opponent’s 21 in four games and they might demand that A&M prove their offensive poten tial first, which would obviate our entrance. As an eighteen year observer of A&M football teams, I have great difficulty remembering A&M varsity backs running into each other on offensive plays or now adopted a policy of non violence; an admirable policy, ex cept that it wins very few foot ball games. If the “older and wiser” (used advisedly) former students and school officials wish to form a 25 year alliance, a la Jess Neely and Rice, with our present coach ing staff, the least they can do is to get A&M in a conference on a par with the caliber of football played by the head coach’s former team, Wichita. W. H. Krause, ’50 Editor, The Battalion: This letter is written on the subject of non-regs greeting and whipping out to Corps members. In my three years at A&M I have found that non-regs will generally speak and whip out— if you will take the initiative. Tonight I had an experience A&M linebackers waiting for the not calculated to encourage me, ball carrier to get to ,the.m. I or any other student, in . taking- do'remember a 1954 Aggie team that initiative. While approach-' that was out-manned, and out- “abilitied” but definitely in every ball game but their first one, because they were not out-coach ed. They were a pretty belligerent crew. In any event, it has become increasingly apparent that we have given up competing in the “Texas and The Seven Dwarfs Conference” since Coach Bryant heeded “mother’s call’ and have ing the post office after evening chow at Sbisa, I whipped out a non-reg who responded by strov- ing his hands into his pockets and saying “okay.” This sort of reaction can hardly fail to bring about rather strained . Corps-non-reg relations on the subject of speaking and whipping out, at least in so far as I am concerned. Clyde W.

Editor Travis McGuire said the Southwestern Veterinarian will be ready around the end of October. When the searing sun scorches the plains of India from April to October, thousands of Indians repair to Kashmir. The money they spend is an important part of the state’s revenue.

And the better your chances are to learn so you can move on to additional responsibilities and rewards. Boeing’s world leadership in the jet transport field is an indication of the calibre of people you’d work with at Boeing. The forward-striding attitude re sponsible for this leadership has, since 1916, provided a steady succession of pioneering achievements: first twin-engine, retractable-gear, low-wing, all-metal airliner; first four-engine, pressurized airliner; first modern, high- performance bomber; first large swept-wing, multi-jet bomber; and, of course, America’s first jetliner, the 707, and the 720 and three-jet 727. (Right now we’re designing a variable-sweep wing supersonic transport.) Boeing is one of the nation’s major manufacturers of heavy transport heli copters (Vertol), and for more than two decades has pioneered most of the world’s applications of the small gas turbine in aircraft, industrial, marine and vehicular fields. And the space age? Boeing’s contributions here include major contract responsibility for the Minuteman ICBM and NASA’s Saturn V Booster — the launch vehicle destined to send America’s first lunar landing team to the moon. We’re also working full blast in all other phases of space flight, including a manned earth-orbiting laboratory and a lunar orbiter. Projects underway in Boeing’s extensive Scientific Research Laboratories encompass basic and applied research in celestial mechanics, solid state physics, nuclear and plasma physics, terrestrial and space flight science and allied human factors. Engineers and scientists at Boeing work in small groups, under supervisors picked for ability to inspire and promote the ideas of their associates. Individual initiative and ability get plenty of exposure that way. (The com pany encourages graduate studies at leading colleges and universities near Boeing installations.) Boeing is an equal opportunity employer. We’re planning to interview engineering and science seniors and graduate students on campus on the date listed below. So drop in at your campus placement office and arrange an appointment. We’ll be looking forward to meeting you.
