Page 4 THE BATTALION TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1975 Imperial Naval cadets study^ harder Iranians stride into corps life Expert quaffers find same beer different I -yH T ft I' r By DON MIDDLETON Staff Writer Iran is a Middle East country of 32 million people covering 1.6 million square miles. It is the 13th richest country in the world and the 4th leading oil producer. It exports caraway seed, petroleum and Impe rial Iranian Naval cadets. One thousand such cadets are in colleges and universities through out the United States, 10 of them at Texas A&M University. Iran, known as Persia in ancient times, is a member of the Organiza tion of Petroleum Exporting Coun tries (OPEC), but is not a member of the Arab bloc of nations. The Iranian Aggies are candidates for commissions in the Imperial Navy. They were sent to A&M to study Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, said Cadets Yousaf Hafezizadeh and Manucheher Kavehkar, freshmen in Company K-2. The government of Iran is sub sidizing the program, Hafezizadeh said last week, and provides the cadets with transportation for a month-long vacation home each summer. “Mechanical engineering in Iran is not good for a naval officer,” said Hafezizadeh. He also said the gov ernment is currently in the process of improving its engineering prog ram, but until it does, Iranians will be sent to the U.S. to study. Kavehkar, who comes from Rasht in northern Iran, said that the major difficulty the Iranians encountered was translating American textbooks. “If one of our American friends lias to study for two hours, ” he said, we have to study for four hours — it takes two hours to look up all the words in the dictionary.” The Iranians’ conversational En glish is strikingly good. The trouble comes when they are faced with homework problems using the En glish measurement system. In Iran the metric system i^> used exclu sively. Adjusting to life in the U.S. has also meant changes in dress and eat ing habits. Hafezizadeh said that the clothing of Texas was much more casual than that of Iran. Reaction to the Iranian cadets by other members of the Corps and the Military staff has been mostly posi tive. Colonel M. H. Ivins, head of the Naval ROTC department, said that the Iranian cadets “wear the un iform well and seem to readily ac cept discipline.” But he expressed concern that the other cadets might be slow in accepting them. His worries seem to be un founded, however, as reactions have run from mild to enthusiastic. Derrick Suehs, commander of Company K-2, is convinced that the Iranian cadets will make good Ag gies and naval officers. David Hac- kemeyer, who commands Company N-l, is also impressed with the two Imperial Naval candidates in his unit. The main obstacle Hafezizadeh, Kavehkar and their countrymen worry about is one of study time. "We have heard many people complain that they do not have enough time to study, Hafezizadeh said. “If there is not enough time for them, there is certainly not enough time for us.” Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — Television ads, not your taste buds, probably determine what beer you like best, according to a recently published study at the Wharton School of Bus iness and Commerce. The study tells of250 regular beer drinkers who were given four diffe rently labeled cans of beer. All 250 selected a favorite brand. Most said they found one beer that tasted hor rible. All four cans contained the same brand of beer. The study, conducted by Whar ton Profs. Russell L. Ackoff and James R. Emshoff, was soundly at tacked last week by the luncheon crowd at Cavannaugh’s, a hospita ble drinking spot only blocks from the Wharton School. “I not only can taste the differ ence, I can smell it,” said Hank Letherland, who says he is almost 60 years old and has been enjoying beer since age 12 when he helped his father mix home-brew in the basement of their home. “Even when I have a load on," said construction worker Jimmy Brandt, 30, “1 know what I’m drink ing. I give it light hack to the bar tender, sometimes in the face. He should know better than to give me anything but my brand.” Ackoff and Emshoff are consul tants to Anheuser-Busch, Ine,, brewer of Budweiser and other beers. They invited 250 proven beer quaffers to what they saidwasa tasting session for four beers that Anheuser-Busch was thinking of putting on the market. The participants were given a psychological test to determine what type or category of jverson they might be: heavy drinker, light drinker, extroverted, shy, what ever. The study says participants who tested into a particular personality category usually liked most the beer that had been promoted in the TV blurb by a personality with traits from the same category. m m Persian fish 'Yousaf Hafezizadeh (left) and Manucheher Kavehkar are fish «i in the Texas A&M Cadet Corps and are simultaneously cadets) of the Imperial Iranian Navy.

The first was an Iranian governmental regulation prohibiting the cadets from speaking to reporters. The rule is one imposed on all military personnel, but was waived after the Naval ROTC depart ment contacted the Iranian embassy in Washington, D.C. The Iranian liaison officer at first insisted the A&M ROTC de partment screen the questions to be asked and supervise the inter view. This was also waived, but the Naval ROTC department met with the reporter before the interview and approved the text after ward. The Iranian cadets understood at all times that they were not to answer any questions pertaining to government policies, petroleum or any other controversial subject. The final delay was due to the embassy’s desire to tell the cadets directly that they would be allowed to take part in the inter view. The matter remained unresolved for two days due to scheduling difficulties. The interview was eventually held without this formality, but with the full approval of the Iranian embassy and the Naval ROTC department.

J. Estelle, Jr. said Monday the state prison system will suffer from overcrowding by 1980. Estelle, in a news release, said there will be facilities for only 21,860 in five years under the de partment s current building prog ram . But if the present trend con tinues, there will be an inmate population of 22,309 by 1980. “The facts are clear, we are run ning out of room,” Estelle said. “With multiple factors contributing to this trend of increasing commit ments, there is no relief in sight. Texas rate of parole is one-third less than the rest of the country, he pointed out. This could be im proved if the Board of Pardons and Paroles gets more resources, Es telle said. The Texas prison population has grown from 12,622 in 1970 to more than 18,000 this past August.
