local / state Battalion/Page' February 16,19! Problems keep things lively A day in the life of a dean by Scott Griffin Battalion Reporter Trying to meet with a dean at Texas A&M can be like going to the family doctor. There are at least three or four people wait ing in line most of the day, busi ness associates wander in and out and a secretary keeps assur ing you that you are next in line. Bryan Cole, associate dean of student affairs in the College of Education, says the flow of stu dents is normal in his job. Cole says he loves his work, which consists of conferring with many students, but it does not end there. He serves on at least 15 committees, teaches, in teracts with department heads, DELIVERS!

Cole appears to be an average businessman. He wears a three-piece suit, works in a large office and has three secretaries and graduate assistants who help him. But average is not the word to describe this man. Cole grew up in Marlin and while in high school received a congressional appointment to West Point, the U. S. Military Academy. Cole, who originally intended to make the service his career, served four years in Germany and one in Vietnam. After Viet nam, he returned to Texas and received his doctorate degree from Texas A&M in 1975. Cole then became assistant to the dean and has steadily worked his way up to his current position. His office is staffed with three secretaries, who are as agile as street policemen when it comes to directing student traffic. When students go to see him, Cole seems friendly, yet firm and to the point. His office is spacious and comfortable as a living room, with four soft chairs to accommodate visitors and a giant window that overlooks the campus. Cole sits at a large L-shaped desk which is orderly, but stack ed with books, journals and other resource materials. Final ly, memos, notes and various papers bombard him, but Cole survives it all. He knows exactly what’s going on, and he seems able to deal with virtually any Now you know (after 5 p.m.) ($1 OFF Campus Delivery After 9 p.m. with this Ad.)

Cole deals with students in the same fashion — no problem surprises him. He also is a master of manag ing time — something he says West Point taught him. Between the faculty, students and paper work, Cole finds time to play racquetball, participate in the Army reserves, and, most im portant to him, be with his wife and two children. Cooperative Extension service. She says fatty fish such as mackerel, salmon and fresh tuna have a storage life of three months at zero degrees F, while leaner fish such as haddock, cod and swordfish can be kept up to 6 months at the same tempera ture. O’Diernd says fish and sea food may be frozen safely for longer periods, but flavor and texture will deteriorate. Quality loss also occurs when fish and seafood are not pack aged in moisture-proof, air tight wrappings. Leaky packag ing leads to freezer burn, or white spots and white edges on the fish or seafood. Cole’s career at Texas A&M has been colorful, including a quick rise to his position as an associate dean while garnering a few awards along the way. In 1980, he received the Dis tinguished Service Award from the MSC Council and Directo rate for his work with various student programs, and in 1979, he received a Faculty Disting uished Achievement Award for teaching. Cole’s expertise in dealing with students will be handy in the next few years because the College of Education is expand ing quickly, he says. Cole attributes the growth of the college to the increase in jobs for teachers. He says the job out look for teachers is improving in Texas because the recent influx of people from the north. As far as his own career is concerned, Cole is happy here. “I love my work here,” he says. “I’ve had several opportu nities to go some place else, but I’ve stayed here because I enjoy having control over programs that mean something.” Bar asks removal of judge United Press International HOUSTON — The State Bar of Texas has filed a lawsuit seek ing disbarment of 1st Court of Appeals Judge Ben G. Levy for having sexual contact with a female client before his election last year. The lawsuit filed Monday said Levy, 55, violated two codes of professional ethics in an inci dent in a county jail room. The complaint stems from the allegation that Levy was observed allowing the client to place her hand inside his pants on March 26. Levy was convicted in April of the misdemeanor charge of sexual contact and sentenced to 15 days in jail and a $300 fine. He is appealing the conviction. Levy expressed “shock” at the lawsuit and said he had not heard from the Bar’s grievance committee in Houston who filed the lawsuit. The suit asked that Levy be reprimanded, suspended or dis- bared. It alleged that he violated canons of the Bar’s Code of Pro fessional Responsibility which state “a lawyer shall not engage in illegal conduct involving mor al turpitude” and “a lawyer shall not engage in any conduct that adversely reflects on his fitness to practice law.” Defoliant hearings to begin United Press International HOUSTON — A Houston lawyer representing 1,435 Viet nam veterans has been named to the nine-person team which will try an Agent Orange lawsuit in New York next June.
