John E. Cragin, Captain, United States Army, a soldier ' s sold- ier, a swell fellow. Captain Cragin, an army man for twenty-five years, was com- missioned In August, 1942. Twelve of these have been spent at State College, turning out officers of the caliber that held the Philippines under MacArthur. When asked about his instructing accomplishments Captain Cragin grins his contagious smile and replies, " Yes, many a metallic student has passed through my classrooms; brass on his shoulder, gold in his teeth and lead in his pants. " hlowever, " Sarge " Cragin as he is affectionately called by his closer friends, is all business, and with his guidance and under- standing a good job at State College is done better. edUxUed %.... John E. Cragin f f MAY WE SHOW YOU OUR UMPIIS " UMPUS LIFE While there were not too many varied things of interest this year, our activities centered around three or four buildings. Our classes were attended in the major buildings one of which, Goddard Hall, is shown on the preceding page. We lived in dorms, rooming houses, fraternity houses, and any other likely place that had a soft innerspring mattress. Til .1 i fPi 1 I Jik Rhiides H.1II was inhabited by Freshman girls, while Unit II took care of upperclass women and the Zeta Sorority. : - ; !■ ■ ■• ' ' l Page Ten Hadley Hall was the White House of our campus as the president of the college reigns there and all ex- ecutive offices call Hadley home. We did play quite often, maybe more than we should have, and it took place in and around Williams ' Gymnasium. All dances, basketball games, football games, and physical education meetings took place here, and this is what a lot of us came to school for. Page Eleven IDHI ISTHITIOI Headed by dignified, responsible Dean J. W. Branson the war wheels oi State College turned more and more efficiently as the year went on. Faced with the prospect of few or no students at all, Dean Branson managed to get the navy to take over our machine shops and housing facilities, then went ahead and worked toward getting an army contingent stationed here. Affable Mrs. Hamicl again presides as keeper of the watch word and is a friend of all who need to confer with Dean Branson. Members of the board this school year were: M. A. THREET, Las Cruces, President FRANK LIGHT, Silver City, Secret.iry. Treasurer J. A. SWEET, Las Cruces JOHN TWEEDY, Rosweil ALBERT K. MITCHELL, Albert The board was presented to the student body during a student assembly in the first semester, and each member gave a short talk to the students. DEAI IIHWSOI - John W. Bran oi Page Thirlcen T H E D E I I S . . . . Five Deans were faced with many a complex task during the current school year, and each entered in the war spirit with a zeal that was not the hking of Herr Hitler. Few student toes had to be trampled on and the Deans are considered swell fellows by all campus personnel. Dean Bawden took over W. B. ODonnell s office and the many activities as Greek Council and S u- denl Commission sponsor. He was a friend in need with fugitives from the draft boards who had many problems that concern a wartime student. H T. BAWDEN Dean Bovard, helping recruit WAACS and WAVES, held down a job which requires the combined services of two or three peo- ple during normal times. Hearing her call to the colors she married Bar.y Jones, U. S. Army, soon after the second semester began. BERDINE JACKMAN JONES DF.AN GARDNER and his Ags couldn ' t keep the farmers fri)m being drafted, so they revised war agriculture production procedures to a prac- tical and efficient basis. They are waging war on the home front and after all this will be the deciding factor in the long run. DEAN BALDWIN, heading the department of liberal arts and sciences, was very concerned with current social and political problems as well as with constructing ideals for a post-war world. Men with visionary faculties like Dean Balwin ' s will build a safe world, free from strife after this mix-up. DEAN JETT was connected more closely with the war effort than any of the other deans. Sailors, mechanics, airplane workers, and stud- ent engineers trained in his department. Dean Jett personally supervised these projects and did a magnificent piece of work. H. M GARDNER J ■ II R.

" MARVIN HOOVER Taking the initiative in the student activities this year under the leadership of President Marvin Hoov- er the Student Commission has outshone all previous organizations of its kind. Student elections, the spring carnival, the homecoming game, and the pep rally have all been taken in the stride by this group.

Piige Nineteen Academic Senate The Academic Senate, organized in 1938, functions so quietly and smoothly that few students are aware of its existence and importance. However, it handles all academic matters, such as graduation, summer term lengths, grading and examination requirements. Members are: OVERPECK, Chairman ANDERSON BIRD GARDNER GUTHRIE HEINZMAN HOPE JOHANSEN KNOX THOMAS Group Life of Students Council This important committee was founded with the idea of coordinating student functions and needs with all academic problems that might confront a college student. Members are made up of faculty and students alike, with each School having a representative as well as the Student Commission, Greek Council, and independent students. Members are: BAWDEN BEEM JONES CUNNINGHAM GUTHRIE HOPE JACOBS JOHANSEN LAABS OLAUGHLIN THOMAS WALDEN HOOVER JETT ULIBARRI FEATHER DARROW X ' HITE DALLAS, D. Page Twenty i4 uaaA tAe ood _7 La fit L n First, Dad lost his farm help to the defense industries and finally, out of near desperation, wrote for Son to come home and help get the work done. Then came another call — the one that sent hundreds of A M students into action against the Axis — and other boys who were studying in college to learn more about agriculture, bolted from class-rooms for the duration to plant a highly inflammable All-American crop in the field of Axis opera- tions. It appeared that at least two students would remain to give the laboratories a chance to continue operations, but with the WAACS and WAVES gaining in appeal, there was no telling how long these two girls would stay out of uniform! Page Twenty-two 7 a%niEX± In the meantime, the Agronomy majors nourished as best they could the local chapter of the American Agronomy Society; the Animal hiusbandry students kept the Block and Bridle chapter intact, while the oldest club on the campus, the College Agricul- tural Club, came in to compete for the time of both. The Ag Open-hlouse and other first-semester activities went unabated; and somehow, in spite of fast-breaking developments, the major Ag social function, the Ag Ball — a rip-roaring, fun-provoking, temper-testing event of the year — also went on schedule. But there ' s no denying that things won ' t seem the same until the Ags are back on the campus again in full force. What a day it will be! Meanwhile, the absent ones Qre out helping to reap victory, with assurance that it ' s going to be a full harvest. And wherever they are, on the sea, on In the air, or working the land to feed the nation, they ' ll be doing a good job! Page Twenty-three ALPHA TAU ALPHA Founded at the University of Illinois in 1920, the Pi chapter of Alpha Tau Alpha was installed on this campus April 4, 1940. Although the main underlying thought of this year ' s activities was to further the war effort of agriculture, members promoted higher standards of agricultur- al education and fostered a spirit of helpfulness and service to their chosen vocation. Requisites for entrance are high scholarship ratings and preparation for teach- ing vocational agriculture. Officers are: HERBERT WHATLEY, Presuieiit ALEX KRIVOKAPICH, Vice-President LUPITO RODRIGUEZ, Secretary CARL HOWARD, Faculty Sponsor HALL SANCHEZ WHATLEY KRIVOKAPICH WISE HACKE ' i ' HOWARD WIMBERIA ' GARDNER BL ' TTERFIELD RODRIGUEZ ALPHA ZETA ONEAL WHITHM AN h()Ovi;r blackwixl SWAFFORD HUTCHINS The New Mexico Chapter of Alpha Zeta, national agricultural honorary fraternity, was installed in 1927. A very influential world fraternity, Alpha Zeta has as its object high standards of scholar- ship, character, and leadership among its members. The kical group chooses its members from the up- er two-fifths of the sophomore, junior and senior classes of the School of Agriculture. F.ach year, this club gives a medal to the high rank- int; freshman agricultural student.

As far as we know, there is not an Ag in the bunch, but they did play for the Ag brawl sponsored by the Ag club, so don ' t be offended by their being here, Ags. Who knows but what they might be good farmers if we have to come to that.

Their purpose is to promote a higher scholastic standing among students of animal husbandry, and bring about a closer relationship among men pursuing the profession. The ranch day program, a livestock judging program, and a chuck wagon supper, are on their year ' s calendar of events. KAI.PH HACKEY Thitly DAIRY f L II B Several years ago, students interested in subjects related to the various phases of dairying or- ganized the Dairy Club at New Mexico State College. The important activities of the club in- clude the sponsoring of the dairy judging club. Insuring a close cooperation between members working for the department and the department staff, and promoting interest in the dairy in- dustry, are ann)ng their purposes.

HQOLOFARTS tiidEnti of Surrounded in past times by engineers and ags in multitude, the Arts and Science students this year find more elbow-room, but face a greater challenge. With heads unbowed, they go forward to justify their war-time pursuit of a liberal education, consciously realizing the role it must play in the preservation of America ' s heritage. As Dr. P. M. Baldwin, Dean of Arts and Sciences says, " Though it is true that the schools of liberal arts and sciences do not teach the manufacture of guns or planes or tanks or the technical skill needed to use these instruments, it is not enough for free citi- zens of a free country to know how to fight. They must be able at all times to understand what they are fighting for. In dictatorships, where thought is stifled, technical education may be sufficient, for such regimes dread the liberal education which sets men ' s minds free. Our nation ' s culture is the most precious possession we as a nation have. We must take up arms to fight for it, but while we are fighting, we must not lose sight of that culture for which we are giving our lives. " Page Forty J ZEEci oni Students who are within shou+ing distance of their college de- grees will be the first to enroll next semester if the armed forces have not taken them. From home economics and business admin- istration to music and modern languages, the aspirants for de- grees in Arts and Science will hustle about with far more serious intent than in the leisurely, playful days when opportunity could be courted at ease. The influx of military men to the college and the coming of the WAACS to Las Cruces will bring the martial call to colors close. The Arts and Science students also seek to serve, but cling to the conviction that when their time comes, their faith in a long- time vision will not prove useless.

Miami n£j(Jui4UC4xl " " SLIP-STI(]K An engineering school which has been known for many years for its capable graduates turned this year to a total war program, and in addition to handling its regular students took on three-hundred sailors to train as machinist ' s mates and closed the year by organizing plans for training four-hundred soldiers as army engineers. The engineering line at registration showed the wartime trend toward scientific education. Boys who might ordinarily have blown a trumpet instead of lugging a slide rule or studied Elizabethean drama instead of basic radio flocked to engineering in an attempt to learn something which would fit them to take their places in a nation at war. To be an engineer has always meant to be set apart just a little from average college students. The engineer has a vocabulary of his own. He writes in for- mulae instead of English and has a slide rule in place of a brain. He feels himself definitely superior to anyone else on the campus, especially an Ag. One traditional engineering highlight was missing in 1943. Engineers ' Day, when bearded and green-bedecked technicians hold open house, to display the wonder worlds of the different branches of engineering, when one engineer reigns as St. Patrick and knights all seniors, was canceled. The fifteen- year celebration, changed ten years ago to coincide with St. Patrick ' s Day, was abandoned because war had taken a heavy toll of the school ' s enrollment. Page Sixty-jo DEMONS But, if the school had to give up a few peacetime customs, it performed well its main job — training students to take specialists ' roles in a world at war. Dungaree-clad sailors invaded the campus in June. The first contingent of seventy-five men m a huge program arrived to take a four-months ' course in the newly organized U. S. Naval Training School for Machinists ' Mates. To the engineering school went the job of supervising their training, hiring instruc- tors, and providing classrooms. Goddard Hall ' s quadrangle hummed as the navy boys worked loudly at their lathes. The college soon got used to seeing a monthly graduation. ' When the program closes this June, about 750 sailors will have passed through the school in a year. Engineering schedules were rearranged so that students could take the courses which would make them immediately valuable to the armed forces. As the year 1942-43 closes New Mexico A M is perhaps more an engineering col- lege than anything else, and graduates of the enginee ring school are doing just as good work in service all over the world as they did in peacetime.

With a complete revamping of the teaching personnel, and with the sub- ject matter being altered almost with the daily headlines, the " war " department was perhaps the most rapidly changing department in the entire college. Gone, before the year was over, was colorful, dynamic C]ol. A. W. Chilton, head of the de- partment, who was transferred to other duties. Gone too was friendly Major Emmett L. Na- tions, who early in the year was called elsewhere. Replacing Colonel Chilton as head of the department was Major R. D. Bell, immaculately neat, gentlemanly " Easterner " , whose broad army experience coupled with fine teaching abilities did much to help the department fill Its most important place in the education of this year ' s Aggiemen capably. Promoted from First Lieuten- ant to Captain was versatile Aggie Alumnus Jack F. Baird who, as usual, added some first-rate sports an- nouncing at all home football games to his duties as in- structor. Also promoted to Captain was " Sarge " J. E.

No longer was " war class " a necessary evil to be endured two or three times a week and on Tuesday afternoon. The training received here took on a new significance to students, who realized that within a very short time theirs would surely be a military profession. Class problems, military drill, attack problems on the mesa, marksmanship — all these and more were seen in the light of actual situations, rather than as static theory. Eighly-ttfc COMPANY ' " B " It is ironic, perhaps, that although such training was more important than ever before, it was more difficult to present. Virtually all necessary drill equipment, such as the Springfield rifles, were taken by the army for use by men on active duty. Drill was carried on for a while with no rifles, although wooden pieces were issued for the second semester. Through enlistment and induction, the ranks of the ROTC army were drastically thinned as the semester progressed, yet by " doubling up " of reduced squads, platoons, etc., military drill continued despite such reductions. Quite often a rifle squad would represent a complete rifle company. Page Eighty-three f - e . : ih i t t ty:. ,- , o COMPANY ' C " The " rotating officer " plan, whereby groups of cadet officers were alternated for different parts of the semesters, giving more students an opportunity for such practical experience, was used for the sec- ond consecutive year. In order -to better prepare men for active duty, more stringent observance of mil- itary courtesy was enforced, i ncluding the saluting by basics and cadet officers on Tuesdays, as well as the wearing of ROTC uniforms all day. Service films, explaining problems beyond the scope of local facilities, became a regular feature of the training program. Page Eighty-four COMPANY " D " Long to be remembered will be the several sudden, tense meetings of theROTC men to hear the latest news regarding the current status of the ERC, advanced ROTC, and other groups explained; or the latest rumors discounted, by Colonel Chilton, Dean Branson, and others; as well as the electrifying news just before the Christmas holidays, that all ERC men were to be called to active duty within a few weeks, which order was rescinded a week later. Yet the military life on the campus did have its lighter moments, as, for example, the Military Ball, presented after a lapse of several years by the Junior advanced men in honor of the graduating sen- iors. However, the dominant spirit in the school year 1942-1943 will be remembered as one of deadly earnest in preparation for the most: important task any of these students will ever have to face. Page Eighly-fii SEIIOR iDlMCED flASS 5d«:4 fiiK va ; 3ak ;ii " ¥i; These students, members of the Senior Advanced ROTC, will report to Ft. Benning, Ft. Belvoir, Fort Monmouth, and other training centers after completion of their school year. For a period of three months, they will undergo rigorous training, and will graduate with a second lieutenant ' s commission. Serving his second year on the cam- pus was Staff Sgt. Cecil Rousseau, confidant and pal to w o r r i e d ERC ' ers, whose chief duty seemed to be tracking down negligent advanced students, who failed to be measured for " pinks " and " blouses " . Newly added was Staff Sgt. George Bless, who celebrated his assignment to Aggieland by getting married. Wooden rifle is c.irefully inspected by the sergeants. Many of the ROTC students that finished their training at State College served on Bataan under MacArthur, and many are now serving on hundreds of fronts the world over. Typical students are Jack Home and Har- ris " Red " ' Howell, shown adjusting their field packs. JUIIOR IDVIMED CLASS R. 0. T. C. II Senior officers make ready for a big week-end in the field.

TORS Relieved of his duties as freshman coach by a Border Conference ruling making the Rhinies eligible for varsity competition. Athletic Director Kermit " Bud " Laabs has zealously devoted his time during the past year to his physical fitness program. From schooling in a special class this summer, Mr. Laabs has designed a course to prepare the Aggie male population to be physically and mentallv superior to the average army recruit or officer-candidate. Primarily interested in athletics, " Bud " has also worked to forward the Aggie athletic program during the war despite a ruling of the Athletic council that discontinues intercollegiate athletics for the duration. Through Coach Laab ' s effort, a gigantic bond sale was staged in conjunction with the Armistice day football game with the Flying Kelly ' s from Albuquer- que Air Base. KERMIT LA. bj The head mentor ' s perrenial hot-seat was made increasingly uncomfortable this year by a pre- season controversy concerning the abandonment of the scheduled season. Undaunted by this ex- tra burden, Coach Johnston still faced the worst manpower shortage of any Aggie coach since the handlebar mustache held sway. With last year ' s " Crippled Crimson " remnants shattered by graduation, induction, and eligibil- it) ' troubles, Ju and coach Jimmy Rudd turned to a string of green Freshman gridders, a few sophomores up from last season ' s undefeated greenie crew, and a handful of varsit) ' members to meet one of the toughest seasons in recent years. f H f JOHNSTON Page One Hundred Six FIGHTING UlilES As the shadows lengthened across the gridiron to bring to an end the last game of the 19-42 football season, so also was written finis to a colorful page of Aggie annals. Set aside for the duration, the slippery pigskin must await the return of Aggie stalwarts from the harsher bat- tles of their country. The ' 42 season has been a disheartening, uphill fight all the way. The season began with talk of abandoning football, hardly an inspiration to the morale of the players. YC ' oefuUy short of manpower due to the demands of Uncle Sam, the coaches had less than a half-dozen boys with any previous college experience. The un- tried Freshmen and Sophomores who completed the squad proved themselves real Aggies all the way, though the injury-ridden team was cap- able of only one victory during the whole year. »2 - - " - w mi 37 36 00 MAXWELL SMITH ... ..

Yet despite the odds against them in every game, the Aggies asked no quarter and gave none. They entered each game a long-shot underdog, but the unyielding spirit of Ag- gieland conquered any desire to submit to the blows of powerful opponents without response. Driven back on their heels by juggernaut opponent teams, a weaker-willed team would have meekly bowed to each whim of the waves of fresh reserves sent against them. But the Aggies fought. The Aggies fought to prevent Arizona ' s eighth score just as valiantly as they fought to prevent their first. In El Paso, the last few moments of the game found the Miners in po- sition for their tenth score. An- other team might have let the Miners score, received the kick- off, and frozen the ball ' till the gun sounded. But the Aggies flung their weary and bruised bodies into the Mucker reserves and prevented another score. One more score in either game meant nothing, but the Aggies fought on. Page Otic Hundred Eight Great Odds The final chapter in the history of this era of the Aggie gridiron is not stud- ded with the victories of yester-year. The team was not lieralded for crushing offensive power nor for stonewall defensive tactics, yet the Aggie spirit, cour- age, and sense of true sportsmanship remains brighter than before.

This was remedied by the basketball league, composed of eight teams chosen from a list turned in to the athletic director.

Out of these, they chose ten which they thought represented the beauty of the bunch. These ten girls then appeared on the stage before the student body in assembly and were judged by three local judges: Mrs. C. J. Pickett, of the White House in Las Cruces, Capt. Jack Baird, of the Military Science department, and Lieut. W. V. Lulow, of the Navy unit stationed here.

Guynes of the Guynes Printing Company, the annual came out on time. To you, Mr. Guynes, the staff owes many thanks. Credit should be given for the excellent cuts made by the Southwestern Engraving Company, and for J. J. Walden ' s hitting m the pinches when we needed the help. Excellent photography by Mrs. Chester Kirkpatnck and Mr. Jim Ballard took many worries out of the hands of the SWASTIKA staff. And to Dr. Hardman, Marie Jett, Mrs. Berdine Jones, we are extremely grateful, as they were instrumental in helping with the write-ups and copy reading. To the many others who made this annual a success, die publication committee, the business office, the post-office, oar advertisers and those too numerous to name, we say THANK YOU! 0« - HumlreJ Eighty!
