•age 6 THE BATTALION WEDNESDAY, MAY 19, 1976 Author revises Panhandle history An informal history of the Texas ’anhandle. Between Sun and Sod, urs been published by the Texas University Press. The 200-page book ($12.50) by Millie Newbury Lewis is a revised md expanded version of a volume irst published in a small edition in 1938 and unavailable for many years. Included in the book are reprod uctions of H. D. Bugbee’s original pen-and-ink illustrations. Mrs. Lewis explains in the preface that the book began as a desire to preserve for her children a perma nent record of their father’s early life on the Panhandle Plains. “As my interest and understand ing of the subject increased, I came to realize that the story of my hus band and the story of the region were closely related, and that, for the sake of coherence, his story should be preceded by the story of the land that produced him,” she said. Mrs. Lewis, who was reared in Dallas, went to the High Plains with her rancher-husband as a bride in 1912. The frontier had passed by then, but she knew many of the oldtimers and observed firsthand what re mained of an earlier way of life. Her account of the civilizing of the region is based largely on personal inter views and correspondence with some 50 of the men and women who made it happen. Introduction is by Fred Rathjen.

Army, Air Force and Navy- Marine Corps programs at Texas A&M University will send almost 300 cadets to summer field training this year. In four- to six-week sessions, cadets will train in military units and assignments that help prepare them for commissioning as U.S. armed forces officers. Col. Thomas R. Parsons, com mandant, said summer training meshes with individual program work and Corps of Cadets experi ence. It has a record of success in officer production at Texas A&M that goes back over many years. Naval ROTC cruises, at ports and bases around the world, account for 46 percent of the trainees. Col. Jack Ivins, professor of naval science, said 130 midshipmen will be assigned throughout the U.S., and on ships operating out of the Philippines, Ja pan, Scotland and Hawaii. Two cadets will be on foreign exchange cruises, in West Germany and Swe den. Air Force ROTC field training will involve 57 Aggies. They will be; bil leted at McConnel AFB, Kan.; Lack- land and Dyess in Texas; Dover, Del.; Holloman, N. Mex., and Van- denberg, Calif. The professor of aerospace studies, Col. Robert El kins, said basic orientation of cadets will be at a variety of installations. Pilot contract cutbacks have limited the program. Army summer camp at Fort Riley, Kan., will involve 88 A&M cadets. Another five will go to Ranger School, at Fort Benning, Ga., in lieu of the regular Third ROTC Region camp. Five of the Riley- and Benning-bound cadets will also at tend Airbone School. Diego and Camp Pendleton, Calif; Corpus Christi and Charleston, S.C, They get surface orientation on de stroyers, amphibious warfare, Naval aviation flights and submarine orien tation. The program will have 20 seniors at Quantico, Va., for ‘ Bulldog Marine officer basic. It is a six-weeli camp starting June 28.

Sev eral will also he on the East Coast They will take part in a 20 ship Bicentennial Naval Review off Nor folk. NROTC summer assignments are more complex due to the dual nature of the program for Navy and Marine Corps officer candidates. Cadets in the Navy segment make two sum mer cruises, for orientation and more specific training. Forty-seven juniors are headed for career orientation cruise, which will involve one week each at San Seven seniors will lie on nuclear powered ships, of which six will he submarines operating off the East Coast and from Holy Loch, Scot land.

The police take the cats and other domestic animals to veterinarian Sam P. Scainardo. The animals are kept at the Anderson Ridge Clime, 1101 Anderson, for three days. If an animal is properly tagged, the owner will he contacted. Unclaimed ani mals are sent to the AdVM Veterinary School where they are held for a week. The animals are then usedfor research. Racoons, opossums, and other wild animals are released at the city dump. There are three traps available to citizens. If a citizen does not know how to use the trap correctly, Humane Officer L. L. Fitzgerald will demonstrate the proper set up. The traps are most commonly placed in back yards and near gardens. Tuna, fruit, and boiled chicken are used as bait to catch cats, coons, skunks and opossums. Fitzgerald says there is no possi- hility of a child’s wandering into one of the traps because the cages are too small. Radio device invented Embrey’s Jewelry We Specialize In Aggie Rings.

German, have invented and mar keted a radio noise detector. The device has brought money to them, the Texas A&M Research Foundation that found the market and the Texas Engineering Experi- ment Station, a part of tne Texas A&M System. Beasley and German began work ing on the detector several years ago. It allows power company workers quickly to pinpoint powerline dis turbances causing radio noise, most noticeable as television interfer ence. Under Texas A&M System Board of Regent guidelines, the Research Foundation can inquire into the po tential success of any inventionbyan A&M employe at no cost to the in ventor.
