A&M construction workers seem to be somewhat puzzled about where the next wall
should go in the new lounges in the Corps area. Work has been progressing on schedule
and two of the student lounges should be ready by the opening of fall semester classes.
It has been said that “if” is
one of the biggest little words in
the English language. But the
way the Houston Astros have
been going lately, this might be
a pretty good time to combine
a little forward and backward

Just about every Houston fan
is aware of a couple of important
—The National League is go
ing to divisional play in 1969.
—The Astros have been play
ing good, winning baseball un
der the managing of Harry
Walker. (Through last Wednes
day, they were 36-31 under Har
ry “The Hat.”)
Combining those two items in
to the major point of this “what
if” session:
Had the National League Split
into divisions at the same time
that Walker became Houston’s
Manager (June 18), the Astros
would be involved in a red-hot
battle for the NL’s Western Di
vision championship.
The league’s Western Division
in 1969 will include Houston, Los
Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta,
Cincinnati and expansion club
San Diego.
Since Walker took ovef the
Astros, only Cincinnati has had
a better winning percentage than
Houston among the future West
ern Division Clubs. And the
Reds’ lead isn’t enough to make
them overconfident.
Cincinnati has a 35-26 recotj
during the period for a winninj
percentage of .574. That wotj
give them first place in sucki
“what if” divisional alignment,
But Houston, with a 36-31 Hj,
ord (.537 percentage) over ft,
same span, would be only t»i
games off the Reds’ pace. Anj
the Giants would be in the div,
sional pennant battle, too, tr»l
ing by only three games.
Although it’s impossible to fi ? ,
ure a record for the incomir.;

and meant that the Astros ha

T ransportation
Conference Set
The Department of Transpor
tation and Texas A&M will joint
ly sponsor the Eleventh Annual
Transportation Conference at the
University, March 27 and 28,
Secretary of Transportation
Alan S. Boyd and Maj. Gen. John
P. Doyle of the Texas A&M Tex
as Transportation Institute met
in Washington to discuss the con
ference plans.
The conference theme, “Emer
gency Transportation,” recog
nizes that in any national defense
emergency, some degree of cen
tralized national and regional
control may be required. The
conference will explore the needs,
analyze proposed regulations and
procedures, and recommend
courses of action leading to im
proved national transportation
—operators of the modes of
transportation and traffic con
trollers—university and research
personnel, and representatives
from DOT, Doyle said.
Oren Beal, Darby (Butch) Meier, and Eddie Novosad, formerly of the MSG Barbershops,
announce the opening of
Villa Maria Barbers & Stylists
Friday, August 16.
“Our staff of home town men will continue to give you the excellent service that we have given in the past—
with the addition of hair styling and razor contours.”
812 Villa Maria Road — across from the Skyway Drive - In. 823-8925
“Industry, government and the
research agencies should sit down
together to work out effective
emergency controls,” said Secre
tary Boyd. “We must insure that
our regulations and procedures
are as simple and practicable as
we can make them; the alterna
tive is chaos at a time when we
could least afford it.”
Doyle, MacDonald Professor of
Transportation at Texas A&M,
will direct the workshop, working
closely with the DOT Office of
Emergency Transportation. The
conference will be attended by
transportation industry officials

conducted by the Twin City Jun

Skeet range at miniature clay

to .22 rifle marksmanship train
For the hunter there will be

tion and instruction will be fur
nished. All the student need
bring is a canteen of water and
wear a long-sleeved garment.

will be Jim Durham, and he will
be assisted by Jack Bowen and
Jerry Mosley.
