Artillery and Infantry were previously used to denote company-size Band units. Units known as the Maroon and White Bands this year will be desig nated the Artillery and Infantry Bands, respectively, next fall with two company-size units each. Company W-l has been under male command, because cadet offi cers are drawn from the senior class. W-l will include its first senior women cadets next fall.

Elmquist said that she had re ceived a petition from about 30 stu dents who said that they would be willing to take introductory Czech next fall but that the department is still faced with the problem of find ing an instructor. The petition was passed on to Dr. William Maxwell, dean of the college of liberal arts. re isama< “Part of the problem is that now you find Czech at U.T. Austin, the University of Houston, Texas Tech and a variety of junior colleges,” Elmquist said. “A few years ago we were virtually the only institution of higher learning that offered Czech in the state of Texas. “Where we used to get all the people that were interested in Czech, now they can go. almost any where and pick it up. ” The decision to drop Czech was made over a year ago by a de partmental committee comprised of all the senior professors in the de partment of modern languages. The committee’s recommendation was approved by Maxwell.
