d More Work Area, Larger Snack Bar THE BATTALION Thursday, May 12, 1966 College Station, Texas Improved Facilities Sorely Needed In MSC By PAT PRITCHETT What the Memorial Student Center needs most is greatly en larged student work area, more lounge space and an enlarged and modernized snack bar area. These are three things Direc tor J. Wayne Stark would most like to add to the MSC. “We need a huge area some what like the Student Program Office, but a number of times larger, to house all the parts of the Council and Directorate, Student Senate, Civilian Student Council, classes and all the other 300 officially recognized student organizations on campus,” Stark said. “This would be used as a head quarters for the organizations and should contain typewriters, desks and filing cabinets.” He explained that some organi zations do not have permanent headquarters or a permanent sponsor and their materials and correspondence are constantly be ing moved from one place on cam pus to another. This student work area would enable the organiza tions to work more efficiently. “In addition to this one big work area, we need to have one or two rooms adjoining that can be reserved for planning big an nual events, like the Cotton Pag eant. These could be reserved for one, two, three or four weeks to plan and organize the activity.” STARK SAID a second big need is for the individual stu dent to have a place to sit, read a letter, have a cup of coffee and visit with his friends. “This is especially needed now because more and more students are driving in to class and don't have a dorm to go to during the day.” Along with more lounge space, Stark stressed the need for a “modernized and hugely enlarged snack area.” Maximum banquet seating is 350 now, but Stark noted there is a need to be able to seat 500 to 800 people at one meal, or pos sibly even 1,000. “THE FOOD serving and pro ducing area needs to be modern ized and enlarged if we are going to serve these areas that we have talked about for the students,” — BATTALION WANT AD RATES One day - - ic per word each addition!

Another group of people for whom more room in the MSC is needed are the former students, who originally gave $190,000 in bonds to help build the building. How did all this begin? What was the starting point that led to this large impressive Wkftding on the Texas A&M campuA that wll become larger still ? But more important than the build ing, what started the college union movement, and how does A&M fit into it? IT BEGAN at Cambridge in 1815 when members of three de bating societies would gather at the Red Lion Inn before and after debates to talk and have some thing to eat and drink. But they realized that they wanted and needed more room, club rooms and a debate hall of their own. They got these things, and gradually libraries, dining rooms, meeting rooms, lounges and of fices were added along with art exhibits, poetry and philosophy books in the libraries, so the unions became a cultural as well as a social center. The movement spread ip America and quickly grew. In the mid-twenties there were bare ly a dozen unions; 900 are either built or being planned now. Col leges recognize that young people away from home need a center and a program outside the class room. The Association of College Unions says a union is “The com munity center of the college, for all members of the college fami ly, part of the educational pro gram.” The college union, and particularly the MSC, does this in many ways. ONE IS AS a living room of the college. This is certainly true at A&M, for the MSC has ab sorbed that nickname. It has be come a gathering place for stu dents, faculty and campus visit ors. A second way it serves is as a dining room. The MSC dining room serves meals three times a day and also prepares food for numerous banquets. The union should be a service center, and in the MSC this in cludes a barber shop, telegraph service, travel bureau, guest rooms, check cashing service, post office, telephones, newspaper and magazine stands and a gift shop. The fourth way a union would serve is as a conference center. This is fulfilled at A&M, as the MSC » the site of shortcourses throughout the year and also for activities such as the Student Conference on National Affairs and Hydro-Space Fiesta. IT SHOULD be a center for cultural recreation. The MSC has a recreational reading room, photography darkroom, music listening and piano-playing rooms and places for art displays. The final two ways in which a union should serve—as a labora tory for student government and as a unifying force — are com bined in the MSC Council and Di rectorate. The members of the Council serve as the governing body, and the 14 committee of the Directorate plan the majority ot student events. These include anything from a Brenda Lee per formance to a speech by Scott Carpenter to a European charter flight in the summer. KINETIC ART . . . Mrs. Vickie Deuel studies display. Kinetic Art Form Displayed In MSC An art form created by a Tex as Aggie is being displayed in the Memorial Student Center at Texas A&M by the Contemporary Arts Committee. The unusual paintings will be exhibited until June 4. Dr. Frank J. Malina, a 1934 graduate, is an aeronautical en gineer, geophysicist, founder of the Jet Propulsion Lab at Cal tech, Lunar International Labora tory researcher and holds a British patent on the art form he encourages people to copy. The Brenham native, who ex hibits kinetic art in Paris, France, produced the form in 1955 when he placed lights be hind a layer of colored wire mesh and attached thermal interrupters to them. From this beginning, the designer and launcher of America’s first successful high- altitude rocket (the WAC Corp oral) launched a new art. Six paintings exhibited near the MSC main doors consist of basic compositions painted on fixed transparent plaques (sta tor). One or more elements (rotors) are painted and moved by electric motors. Light from lamps incorporated in the con struction is cast on a semi-trans parent screen. The art takes two formats, lumidyne (lighted from behind) and reflectodyne (front lighted). The A&M graduate has created 100 of the art objects which are hung in Lyons Museum and the Musee d’Art Moderne in Paris. In the unique system of art, Malina chose themes in the world of science and focuses attention on the interplay between science and art. Paintings loaned to the Con temporary Arts Committee are “Orbit No. II,” “Electro Paint ing No. 20 and No. 21,” “Birgo,” “Nebula No. 1” and “Orbit No. 5.” The pieces were loaned by Mrs. Smith Mercer, Malina’s sister, and R. E. Robertson, both of Houston. Other creations depict constel lations such as Cepheus, Polaris, Ursa Major, nebulae and other interstellar objects. Man’s en try into space spawned a series of orbital paintings and others show graphic design of a frog’s heartbeat, geometrical forms, and atomic, biological and molecular structure. Malina is director of the In ternational Academy of Aero nautics and permanent represent ative to UNESCO of the Interna tional Astronautics Federation. The futuristic paintings on dis play evoke varied and interesting remarks. “We’d like to hide a tape re corded in the booth and get some of the comments,” remarked Dav id Gay, chairman of the arts ex hibit subcommittee.

AVAILABLE AT Loupot's Health Service Awards $85,742 Research Grant An $85,742 continuing grant to the Texas A&M Research and Graduate Center was announced Wednesday by School of Archi tecture Chairman Edward Romie- niec. The Public Health Service award is for the second year of a three-year research program to make patient care buildings more adaptable to rapidly chang ing demands created by advances in medical techniques and equip ment, hospital operations and fluctuating social patterns. Assistant Professor James R. Patterson is project director. Ker- mit Anderson is professional re search assistant. Graduate as sistants include Frank Still of Temple, Douglas Ogilvie of San Antonio, Dan Malcolm of Cana dian, and Russell Stogsdill and Mike Greer of Fort Worth. Paterson said his staff will construct actual working proto types of full-size, fully-equipped rooms this year. The research involves analyz ing and developing single and multiple bed forms for patient- care rooms and in groups as nurs ing units. Special emphasis is given, Patterson explains, to con venience and service equipment. Plans call for the resulting adaptable building system to be used to supplement or renovating existing building interiors and in new construction of patient care buildings. The grant is being administered by the Texas Engineering Ex periment Station. The Public Health Service awarded $66,384 to A&M for first year of the study. Tarleton Dinner To Honor Howell Dr. M. T. Harrington, former A&M System chancellor and now coordinator of international pro grams, will emcee the apprecia tion dinner for Tarleton State President E. J. Howell in Stephen- ville May 21. Tickets for the dinner may be obtained at the A&M president’s office in the System Administra tion Building. Howell will retire when a suc cessor is announced by the A&M System directors, who plan to attend the appreciation dinner. A&M President Earl Rudder and other A&M officials also will be present to honor Howell, who moved up from dean to Tarleton president in 1948.
