Ed Walraven, director of public information at A&M, said the space- grant program is patterned after the federal acts that created the land- and sea-grant programs. A&M has been a land-grant insti tution since its founding in 1876 and was one of the first institutions to re- LUHCff BUFFET ALL YOU CAH CAT SALAD. pizza $3,69 llam - 2pm Dally 326 Jersey 211 University Carter Creek Center Work.

Now we’ve got the space grant.” Although there wasn’t such a thing as a space grant in the past, he said, A&M has been involved in space-related research for about 25 years. Vandiver said A&M has been in terested in space research since the 1950s and heavily involved since NASA first started. The Space Research Center, started three years ago, is one of the programs that would benefit from a space grant. Oran Nicks, director of the cen ter, said there now are 60 or 70 in vestigators involved in the research and about as many students. They currently work with $3 million worth of activities, ranging from gravitatio nal and life support research to space transportation studies, he said. A&M recently was awarded a NASA grant of $5 million, which was money well spent, he said. Nicks said if A&M becomes a space-grant university, it will give talented students a chance at re search and help them gain more ad vanced projects. “The big plus is that the space grant would produce a greater rec ognition of the University’s space re search and would draw more indus tries here,” he said. Although Jack Devore, Sen. Bent- sen’s press secretary in Washington D.C., said there is no talk of a veto, Walraven said anything is possible. “Congress has passed appropria tions to set up space grants and to set us up as a space-grant institution,” he said. “But just because the vote is passed doesn’t mean the money will make it here,” DeVore said. “That’s the whole concept of checks and bal ances of the American Constitution — somebody could take the money away as well as give it. “But it’s a reality now — at least on paper.” Bank (Continued from page 1) bank will be responsible then for receiving additional deposits.” Rouse said a bidder’s meeting was held earlier this week after the OCC initiated an examination of Western National Oct. 5. Only one bid for the deposit base — First State’s — was received, he said. First State will have the option to purchase loans from Western National as well, but terms are pending examination of the pur chase agreement and the failed bank’s loan portfolio, Rouse said. Although First State has i, purc hased the bank building,i[l purchase agreement would all it to do so. he said. “Typically, those agreemej will include options where mgs, turniture, fixtures, tory can be purchased agent bank,” Rouse said. Western National received ; national bank charter Nov, 1982. As of Sept. 30, it hadte assets of about $19 million. ern National’s failure was ( 13rd this year in Texas 150th in the nation.
