This is State College as seen through the camera lens and described by the pens of the 1957 Swastika. Some people have likened the editing of an an- nual to bringing up a child. Everyone likes them if they are good, has worlds of advice on how to bring them up, but no one is willing to take the time to correct them if they are bad. Such would have been the case this year, but for the large and compe- tent staff that gave freely of their time and effort in trying to publish a superior yearbook. For many of the staff this edition was a training for future years. I can only say, that if their learning was in propor- tion to their work, the A M campus can look for- ward to a series of progressively better yearbooks in the years to come. It was a distinct pleasure to have been privil- eged to direct them.

The tradition and the material entity of New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts have grown through the years because of the selflessness and generosity of the faculty, the student body, and the alumni. In 1908, the students of A M erected the fountain which stands south of the bus stop at the eastern end of the U -drive- When 1937 rolled around, another was constructed near the Home Economics Building. Of course the students didn ' t have to sacrifice the time and effort necessary to build the little campus land-marks. But they did! These people are a representa- tive example of many who have worked so hard to push old AdM up the ladder. Driving toward Las Cruces from the south, the portion of our college visible before all others is the tower of the football stadium-the stadium whose construction was financed by generous alums. Over the years since the founding of New Mexico State College in 1889, there has been no lack of hands ready and willing to attack the labor of making the college a better place in which to live and study. Many of these contributors are unremembered, unthanked, nameless. But the campus and its traditions stand as their monument. And every brick in every building, every club charter and grant of funds bears the marks of their fingers. Even when the buildings, and charters, and bank-notes crumble, the monument to selfless- ness will live on-for the ultimate creation and final product of these many works is the student well instructed in the arts of usefulness and good citizenship. rs PEBgEKELCl gy NEW MEXICO COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE AND MECHANIC ARTS OrnCE OF THE PRESIDENT STATE COLLEGE. NEW MEXICO December 14, 1956 TO THE STUDENT BODY Dear Aggies: Together let ' s take a look at the past, at the present and at the future of our College. But first let me tell you what sixteen months in New Mexico has done to me. I have learned to love this State of ours and to admire and respect its friendly people. There is no place I want to be other than in New Mexico and as much time as possible on the campus of our New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts. It is great to be an Aggie. In my travels over the State I have found Aggies who talk about the years gone by, of the days when there were only a handful of people at State College. Then our College was exceedingly small and the struggle to survive was great. Those were and always will remain the important days. Those folks built the foundation on which the New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts has grown and will continue to grow. Ours is still a small school. Ours is still a struggling school with much to be done. Progress is be- ing made. The recent addition of Ph. D. degrees; the addition of a Graduate School and a School of Teacher Education, are symbols of academic growth. New buildings for engineering, for chemistry and for physics and mathematics are symbols of physical growth. Yes, our College is on the move. The future holds great things. All forecasts of enrollment indicate that there will be not less than live thousand students on our campus by 1970. That means that we must have virtually twice as many teachers, nearly twice as many buildings; yes, twice as many of everything. To this end all of us must be alert; all of us must be working so that we can carry the responsibilities that go with such growth. These will be interesting, challenging years in which all of us can make a contribution to the greater New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts of the future. Together with our Alumni we can and will do the job. Sincerely, R. B. Corbett President of the College DR. ROGER B. CORBETT 1 Viewing the college expansion program from the little " tractor cart " are the Board of Regents and members of the State Board ot ri- nance. The student hears little about the Board of Regents but they are the most important single group concerned with the college. MH. JESSE U. RICHARDSON from Mesilla Park is president of the Board; HORACE HUBERT of Carlsbad is Secretary-Treasurer. Mem- bers are MRS. EARL CORN of Dexter. MR. DELMAR ROBERTS of Anthony, and MR. GEORGE ELLIS of the Bell Ranch. Ex-Officio mem- bers are the Honorable ERWIN MECHEM and the Honorable GEORGIA LUSK. MR. HAFEN, Purchasing ... In a school the size of A S M, a tremendous amount of supplies is necessary to carry on the functioning of such a complex machine. All of the work involved in the heavy job of purchasing the supplies is handled by Mr. Hafen. MRS. LEE. Editor of the " Aggie " . . . Mrs. Lee. although she is not very well known to the students on the campus, is one of the best known peoole at New Mexico ASM to all our alumni. As editor of the alumni magazine, it is her job to tell the ex-students what is going on on the campus, and what their old classmates are doing now. DR. W. B. O ' DONNELL, Dean of the School of Education . . . This is a newly formed insti tution at ASM. Dean O ' Don- nell has great practical experience with the public school system, having serv- ed as secretary to the New Mexico Education Association for several years. He thus brings to this post ex- perience both practical and academic Under his leadership, the school of ed- ucation is sure to grow and progress at A M. DR. M. A. THOMAS, Dean of the School of Engineering. . . Dean Thomas, who is a registered professional engineer, also is a professor and serves as head of the School of Engineering. Under his able guidance, the school of engi. neering on the campus of New Mexico A4M has grown to nation-wide impor- tance and has come to be the largest school in the college. • " M pf- jb; . DR. R. H. BLACK. Dean of the School of Agriculture . . . Dean Black, who came to the ASM campus in the fall is aslo head of the extension depart- ment. He has an increasingly busier school to work with, and has handled all his many tasks capably and effi- ciently. DR. A. D. BOSTON, Dean of the School of Arts and Science ... the School of Arts and Science at A M has been making a steady growth in size and accomplishments for many years. This growth for the past nine years has been under the steady hand of Dean Alvin D. Boston. Dean Boston is em inently suited for his organizational job. having served as Director of Re- search for the Clin Corp. during World War II. Dean Boston is also professor and head of the chemistry department. MISS ERA RENTFROW, Heqistiar , . . Without Miss Rentfrow and the Regis- trar ' s office, the entire school would be completely lost. It is due to her staff ' s hard work that our rapidly growing college is able tc keep track of all its students. DEAN MARTHA HALL. Dean of Wom- en ., . Although this is Mrs. Hall ' s first year with us. she has already become one of the best-known women on the campus. Through her office come all the girls looking for help and ad- vice, and she is always ready to give it to them. DR. EARL WALDEN, Dean of Graduate School . . . The graduate school is newly established and growing. The administration selected Dr. Walden as a man eminently qualified for the job of guiding the new department. All the returns are not in. but early results show that their choice was a wise one. Dr. Walden. has for several years pre- vious to his appointment as Dean of the graduate school, served as head of the math department. DEAN PHILIP S. AMBROSE, Dean of Students ... He is certainly one of the busiest men on campus, yet he is always ready to listen to anyone — if you can find him. He is a part of al- most every activity of the college, and many of the good ideas put into effect on the campus are his doing. «C f ' f MR. DENNARD, Director of Alumni Re- lations . . . His job is one that cannot be contained in an office on the camp- us. Traveling all over the state, Mr. Dennard acts as an undercover pub- licity agent selling our school to pros- pective students, ex-students, and any- one else who looks interested. DAVE RODWELL, Director of Publicity . . . The rest of the stale, and many colleges throughout the country, learn about New Mexico A M from him. What the students do on campus, how our athletic department fares, what the faculty achieves, all this goes through his office as news to the rest of the state. MR. SILER. Director of Admissions . . . Through this office come all the tests that new students take. These tests are various guidance tests which indicate the field for which the student would be best. Another job of Mr. Siler is to act as counselor to all men students living on campus. MR. SHOMER, Director of Housing. . A big job falls to him, an almost im- possible job. that of keeping all the stu- dents living on campus happy. It is his job to see that the dorms are painted, the rooms cleaned, and the buildings kept in good-and-livable condition. MR. C. H. LINSCHEID, Librarian . . . Through his efforts, our library has grown into a large reference area, where the students can find material on any subject they need. Chester Lin- scheid and his helpful assistants can easily track down any elusive bits of information. Our library is constantly growing, and its facilities are ever mul- tiplying. MR. W. F. WYMAN. Comptroller . . . In charge of our finances, and of see- ing that no one spends too much money, is the unenviable job of Mr. Wyman. In his hands, rests the job of keeping all the campus organizations in the blnck and keeping their compli- cated financial systems straight. MISS GOLDIE SLINGERLAND, Place- ment ... In June of 1947, Miss Sling- erland arrived on the campus of New Mexcio A M. In addition to her work in the permanent placement of A M graduates, she also assists the under- graduates with summer and part-time jobs. And last but not least. Miss Sling- erland assists in placing student wives in positions about town. It is impossible to say how many Aggies would not have been able to graduate without the able assistance of our placement service. MR. F. A. DAY, Director of Campus Maintenance ... It is his department that keeps our campus clean, waters the grass, and plants our flowers. Even though we may mumble occasionally when the sprinklers are set where we want to walk, we all appreciate the work Fred Day and his men do in keeping our campus beautiful. LT. COLONEL ROBERT R. KEMM, PMS5T . . . Lt. Colonel Kemm arrived at A M on July 6, 1955, following high- ly popular Lt. Colonel Noble Riggs. Colonel Kemm has since established himself on the campus not only as a true military gentleman, but also as a friend and counselor to all men. LT. COLONEL WILLARD S. WALTERS, PAS . . . Under the direction of Lt. Col- onel Walter, the AS department has begun to offer flight training to advanc- ed AFROTC students. Colonel Walter has also been instrumental in establish- ing the modern system of classroom training now in practice at A M. COACH PRESLEY ASKEW, Head of Athletics . . . The man with the big load on his shoulders. Coach Askew carries the name of our school into the newspapers on the widely-read sports page, and onto the lips of every sports fan in the state. Through his teams, and his coaching, which won him the title of Coach of the Year in the bas- ketball Coach of the Year in the Border Conference, comes the athletic fame of the school. ro DR. R. W. BRIGGS, Physician ... We are very fortunate indeed, to have such a fine doctor in our campus dispensary as Dr. Briggs. New to the campus, he has already gained a reputation of competent medical treatment that has endeared him to all Aggies with sore throats or stopped-up noses.

New pledges Thurlow Caffey, John Lane, Harry Cook, John Downs, David Ivey, and Buck Rhodes with Dean W. B. O ' Donnell. Blue Key, the newest honorary on the campus, was organized in the spring of 1955, by many of the campus leaders. Jim Quinlan was their president. Charter members included fraternity presidents, the president of the Stu- dent Commission, and many of the men from Who ' s Who in American Col- leges and Universities. This honorary emphasizes service to the school in whatever way is necessary. Members: Back - Buck Rhodes, John Lane, Thurlow Caffey, Allan Clouse.

Blue Key has ninety-five chapters in thirty-six states, and it is aiming for one hundred this year. They are attempting to bring colleges and their communities closer together by their various projects, and on the national level this is succeeding very well. Blue Key is a leadership fraternity and does not permit its members to join a similar organization. Their Open Pledge binds them together, and they do not have a secret ritual. By being a member of Blue Key, the frater- nity feels he is shown as possessing the qualities of leadership and the confidence of his fellow students. At the coffee: John Lane, Monte Shriver, Tom Pogue, Walt O ' Brien, Donnie Wunsch, John Downs, Miriam Briggs. Registration at the ACU Convention MU BETA The honor sorority for senior women at New Mexico A M was organized by interested faculty women and the Dean of Women in the spring of 1954. Its constitution was model- ed after that of Mortarboard, a national honorary organ- ization for senior women, based on high standards of scho- larship, service, and leadership. Since its founding only a few years ago, the organization has grown to one of the most active groups on the campus. Mu Beta is always ready to help with campus projects. Last year, there were many conventions, and they also helped with the installation of President Corbett. This year, they took charge of the registration at the convention held by the members of Student Advisory Boards, helping the Student Commission. Mu Beta, in connection with Blue Key, furnishes the marshalls for the graduation ceremonies. Mu Beta, in its continuous encouragement of higher scholorship among women, in 1955 gave a SlOO scholarship to a deserving freshman woman. In 1956, they contributed to an emergency fund given to the Dean of Women to be used at her discretion, and gave awards at theAWS Banquet to the girl in each class with the highest grades. This fall, honoring the newly founded Blue Key, Mu Beta held a coffee honoring the stu- dents elected to membership in it.

The style in beanie changed a bit during the 17 years intervening between 1941 and 1957-but slopping white wash on the old " A " is good for kicks no matter what a fellow wears to keep the mess out of his curly locks. One can ' t help noticing that there are girls pre- sent in the second photo, indicating that the extra-cur- ricular activity potential has increased greatly in recent years. Although " A " day is but one of many activities which help to mold the student body into a smooth func- tioning whole. This distinctive feature was introduced into the traditions of A M in 1926 when the " A " was constructed-and painted for the first time. No matter what the interests of the student, some phase of the varied extra curricular program will suit his tastes. The campus has several engineering clubs and other professional societies together with a radio station, a newspaper, and a dramatic group. For the as- piring scholar, there are honorary societies to reward the accomplished in every field. The campus sports seven social fraternities and three sororities. A M has a well organized and extensive intramural sports program a- side from varsity groups. Our college seeks to produce the well rounded grad- uate, skilled in study, play, and social life. s mmm ' lcpb A " DAY ■ -• ' -- ■ " ■1. -■ ..v. • - ' - k-- •- ■ " ' Golly but it ' s a long way to the top — View is good, though , V •;,•,.- ' A ' • ' • ' , Bend over Frosh and trade a few. itt ' ' «i.

HOMECOMING iVliM ' " " •« ' »-» " Phi Taus rough it Little Abner style and win second place Homecoming day never fails to be a period of gaiety and pan-campus bustle and activity. The air rings with the shouts of impatient float committee chairmen. Crepe and bunting fly from every " greek temple " heavy trucks groan up driveways where float super structures loom in readiness. The coach harangues the team, the ROTC units polish their rifles and brass for the big parade, the " Queen " candidates suffer with suspense Sure, one homecoming is little different from another-but the thrill of coming back and the tang of the fall air never lose their attraction. Lambda Chi propelled Humphrey puffs down Main Street to tie second with Phi Tau. Valiant TKE ' s sail to conquest of the victory cup, their second victory in as many year s. Savage contention for the victory wreath at Homecoming. When this big, mean looking spider was illuminated by black light he looked something fierce--so the Lambda Chi ' s got first in house display division. CHORUS l i ' lfn Mf n ia ® ? The college choir had a very busy season, including the annual Christmas Vespers and a number of appearances before local clubs during the Christmas season. They appeared on the Religious Emphasis Week program in March and also in March toured Eastern New Mexico. In mid-April they were heard in the annual spring con- cert. They joined with the college community chorus in the presentation of the " Messiah " at Christmas time. The college quartet continued as a popular campus group, appearing before clubs, organizations and con- ventions on campus. A highlight for the quartet was the presentation before a homecoming audience a new Alma Mater song with words by Dr. Hardman of the English Department and music by Choral Director Oscar Butler. CONCERT BAND The concert band always strives to present contemporary band compositions. Guest soloists and conductors are featured on the band ' s excellent concerts. Last year was presented Rapheal Mendez, trumpet artist, and this year Sigurd Rascher, Saxophone virtuoso. Mr. Orlando Bar- era, of the El Paso symphony orchestra, has been guest conductor for the band on several occasions. The flute section-Virginia Frost, Don Kill- mer, Carol Wolford, and Patsy McRee. Public relations for the college were done by the band ' s ex- tensive good-will concert tour: 16 high schools, covering 1300 miles. The band presents three formal campus concerts each year. This year they were cho- sen as the band to perform for the Texas Teachers Convention in El Paso.

Something for the Democrats. iH Wi il " V i r « t i v-it -t NrXff NrM During the marching season, Mr. Tross, band director, and Mr. Jacobs, head of the music department, presented an interesting T. V. show, depicting the makeup of a half time show. The band presented six football shows, all with specially arranged music- Finale and for the Republicans LYCEUM The Lyceum program began this year with something on the different side, the Paul Bley Jazz Trio. They have played all over the nation, and are well known record- ing stars. Their jazz was cool, and their fans among the Aggies really went wild. Second on the list was the General Platoff Don Cos- sack Chorus. An entirely male group, they were first or- ganized in 1927, in Prague, Czechoslovakia among those exiled from Russia because they fought against Com- munism. All the members are now American citizens. Dressed in the military uniform of the old Cossack sol- dier, they sang liturgical music and Russian folk songs, as well as some which have become familiar to Ameri- can audiences in an English translation. Doing the hair- raising daggar dance, which was one of the high points of the program, was Gabriel Soloduhin. The next Lyceum program was Sigurd Rasher, the internationally known saxophonist. He is the artist who has convinced musicians the world over that the saxo- phone is a beautiful instrument in its own right. When he played at A c5r M, he was accompanied by a chamber band. Scheduled for later performance in the spring were Hal Holbrook as Mark Twain, the famous humorist, and Lord ' s Puppet Review, returning from a tour of Europe- Sigurd Rasher and his Sax The Paul Bley Trio The Don Cossack Chorus, featuring Gabriel Soloduhin. In the words of the immortal bard: " Saw, saw, hickory daw, Here we paint ' n drill ' n draw " As far as the Playmakers are concerned, some walk the boards and others work the boards. Yes... things do happen back there.... CORONADO PLAYMAKERS It takes a lot of hammering to forge an actor ' s artistic weapons so they ' ll cut into the audience ' s sen- sibilities at just the right angle. The Playmakers smear nose putty on the old dramatic grindstone in this scene from the collective private lives of some of our Thespian friends. In other words man, they is rehearsing. c H E E R L E A D E R The cheerleaders are a group of four overworked but still enthusiastic Aggies, who believe that school spirit is worth a lot of time and effort. The student body of A M may well give this small band of volunteers, a rousing fifteen rahs!

Paul Boushelle SOQETY EDITOR MAKE-UP EDITOR Wana Lewis David Travis Atlas balanced the world on his back ( or was it his nose? ) The Round-Up has supported A M for more years than you can shake a stick at. The clocks ticked on and the calendar pages flopped into their waste bas- kets for almost two quarters of a century while the Round-Up appeared regularly every week, loaded with news and student happenings of one kind and another. The Round-Up masthead with the engineers, cow- boys and luscious babe in riding breeches has become an immutable symbol of A M college. The masthead incorporates almost every phase of college lift at A M just as the paper itself carries in its columns news from every corner of the campus. The Round-Up is indeed the voice of the Student Body. SPORTS EDITOR I. Chuck Boyland F R Lt, Colonel Willard S. Walter Professor of Air Science- o T The New Mexico A M AFROTC unit spon- sors in its members, a drill team. This drill team, The SABRE FLIGHT, is shown at the left after emerging victorious in drill com- petition with a similar unit from Arizona State College, at Tempe. This competition was held at State College. 1 The steps at the administration building pro- vide a background for the Spring Semester Wing Staff. This staff, headed by Cadet Colo- nel Thomas Pogue, is part of the Air Force training for future positions of leadership. These Cadet Officers are all advanced stu- dents, and receive a small monthly pay check. Here is the aforementioned Sabre Flight in action. This flight, attired in distinctive uni- forms, makes a smart appearance in any pub- lic function. Membership in the group is de- termined by desire and ability. They are com- manded by Cadet Major Richard Taylor. M : n ft This is a shot of the AFROTC Color-Guard. This picture was taken during a formal Pass- in-Review. Perhaps one reaso n they are look- ing their best, is that they are being reviewed by the Military Ball Queen candidates. All is not study and drill in The Air ROTC- There is time found for fun too. These are the " dodos " . The do- dos are pledges to the Arnold Air Society. This society is for Junior and Senior men, and sponsors a number of social activities. COMMISSIONS - Hooray!! The final event of each semes- ter is the commissioning cere- monies. This picture shows Colonel Walter addressing the mid-term graduates. The cap- tion aptly expresses the feel- ing of each. AUDEAN KIRKPATRICK QUEEN OF THE MILITARY BALL. A V % .C ARMY Nothing is more impressive than the sight of a group of men at close-order precision drill. With the college ' s administration building as a background the ROTC unit gives a graphic picture of well-trained young men. Below we see a planning conference between training personnel and the cadet officers. As much as possible the decisions and responsi- bility is given to students. Below, left, is an illustration of only one of the many courses taught by the ROTC. This course, probably one of the most useful techniques learned by prospective officers, is that of Map-reading. Below, right, a student is just being measured for his uniform, which will stamp him as an advanced ROTC Student, and worthy of re- spect as a future officer. ROTC Every homecoming, the Army ROTC furnishes an honor guard for the Aggie Memorial Tower. This year was no exception as this excellent shot of the tower with guard indi- cates. Below is an example of one of the more pleas- ant duties of an officer-to-be-that of pinning his girl ' s corsage just prior to the Military Ball. Further below are a couple of grimmer pic- tures. The machine gun is rather grim to be facing, but the men being so trained will make it grim for any aggressors. At the lower right, we see another grim scene, or at least the inspecting officer will make things grim for the sluggard ROTC student. VANITY FAIR The Swastika was fortunate in securing three experienced members of the Donna Ana Camera Club to judge this year ' s Vanity Fair Contest. The judges, Jim Flanagen, Mrs. C. R. Miller, and Ben Shook, have been con- sistant winners in local photo contests and have gained recognition on a national scale. Jim Flanagen, the Chief Deputy Sheriff, is well known for his sport and available light photography. Mrs. Miller, a housewife, is recognized for her work in the field of color photography. Ben Shook, a local business- man, is noted for his oil painting and pastel sketching in addition to his photography talents. Each judge made his choice independant of the other two. They were unanimous in their selection of first and second places and only varied by one vote in their selection of third and fourth places. The photography for the Vanity Fair section is by Rives Studio V t 1 .

Two big, big, basketball players and one short coach. Brains and brawn? But there ' s a lot of resemblance ' twixt the aggies of yesteryear and those of today other than appearances. Three years running ( 1938, ' 39, and ' 40) the Aggies were conference champions- and in ' 57 our indomitable boys slaughtered an im- pressive list of opponents even though the A M ' ers had been black listed by the crystal-ball boys. Coach Presley Askew and players Duane Schell and Bob Jarrett look mighty happy don ' t they. Well why not? Everybody agrees that A M has a basketball team to be proud of-now as much as be- fore.

Football winners TKE 5 » ;r fit Down through the years, organizations have flour- ished on the campus of A M ; adequate proof that their value is recognized. It is through these organizations that the student gets his first insight into the true nature of the great world outside, the mighty machine with its many cogs and pulleys and driving pistons, the machine in which he must fit and function smoothly-carefully lest he throw the whole assembly awry. Only through activity in organizations can the students learn to fol- low the precepts of cooperation upon which our culture is built. But the club or association has another purpose, that of encouraging worthwhile activity on the parts of students and faculty members. In 1941, " Dad " Jett was elected most popular faculty member. To his left we see Jack Hardgraves, since in- structor of Mechanical Engineering and elected most popular faculty member of 1956. The engineering so- cieties, which make such awards possible have counter- parts in every school of the college. At the Student Leaders Banquet for 1956, awards were presented to outstanding students. Here we see Buck Rhodes handing an Ag club scholarship to Bob Pair. Through such ac- tivitiesas these, campus organizations have made them- selves felt as forces for progress down the years.

Although slightly in- ebriated , The Inspector obviously knows a good thing when he sees it... In the picture to the left are two Unregener- ate characters, although it appears that one of them is doing some regenerating now. This tearful scene occured in the playmaker production of The Inspector General. . . :L» " f For their next presentation, the Playmakers chose, Ibsen ' s Hedda Gabler. This play, which starred Mrs. Martha Gold, was the most powerful play seen here in many a day. It was directed, as usual, by Mr. Hershel Zohn... Contrary to a popular sup- position, these three are not reading dirty jokes. This is one of the lighter scenes from Hedda... The climatic incidents in Hedda Gabler are always her- aldedby the use of a gun as a prop. In this tension-locked scene, Hedda has indicated to Eilert that there is only one way out...

With the passing years, the shadowy complex of ideals which motivated the campus Greeks during their early days differ- entiated into the principles that guide them today : the development of leadership, the encouragement of competition for worthwhile goals, and speeding of progress toward social maturity. The carrying out of these prin- ciples, is however, not the only worthy activity of the Greek organizations. As the Greek World of A and M matured, the idea of service projects, and of helping the unfortunate of the community took hold. One of the foremost of these charitable projects is the annual Christmas party, directed toward providing local underprivileged children with a merry yuletide. In 1940, the attitude of the campus toward the Greeks was manifested in the election of Roy Alton Young as " Most Popular Boy " . Young was also president of Phi Chi Psi, the local which blossomed into the SAE chapter a short time later. The Greeks can indeed be proud of their present position and past record crt State College. The value of their services is evident throughout the college and community. EKggKB PANHELLENIC The Panhellenic Council, composed of delegates from the women ' s fraternities, compiles rules govern- ing rushing, controls the campus policies of the Greek women ' s organizations, and endeavors to promote fraternity spirit among students on the A iS M campus.

Pi Delta was chartered on this campus in 1939 and is one of the 120 active chapters in the United States. Among the many social functions Pi Delta has had during the past year are house parties, an open house honoring the pledges, slumber parties, a caroling party, a charity Christ- mas party, a spring banquet and dance, and coffees for other fraternities on the campus. Pi Delta won first place in Greek Stunt and Greek Sing during the spring of 1956, and during the fall the alumni and active chapters sponsored a Fur Fashion Show.

OmCERS John Burrows President Walter Box Vice-President Janet Bonomo Secretary Through the years the appearance of the young people who stand in line to be registered as students of New Mexico A and M has changed. Once the boys wore their hair parted down the middle and swathed their brawny limbs in black suit cloth, while the girls were clad in floor sweep- ing skirts, long hair and Victorian demureness. Came the day when the fellows were itching in wool knickers and school sweaters as the young ladies stood around in incredibly short skirts of flag pole silhouette, their hair bobbed just like King Tut ' s. At last taste ran to casual slacks and white dress shirts for the masculine segment of the student body while the distaff side espoused long hair, knee skirts and " bobby socks " . Today the style runs to duck tail clips, T-shirts, levi ' s with suspended slide-rule, for the laddies, squaw skirts, etc. for the girls. Yes, the clothes and hair cuts have been altered, but the people under- neath are much the same-with the same problems, the same fears, and the same feeling of slightly bewildered anticipation (obscured by a feigned air of worldlinessy When Hadley Hall was the main building on campus, the registrar ' s office housed Dean O ' Donnell, Dean of Students. He was the man who tackled the students ' problems and untangled their difficulties. Today the registration line extends down the hall of the recently con- structed Administration Building. Different people, different costumes, dif- ferent automobiles in the streets, new buildings, new faculty, a new age- the atomic-with a new challenge-but the boys and girls are here attracted by that which called their mothers and fathers a generation ago: the op portunity for education.

LAS CRUCliS, N. M. [ I , A.. ,JM -r ..f«»- ■-■ " - ••- ..... ' -; ' ;:. ■4 ' : A r% - i ' In the last half-century, the city of Las Cruces and the surrounding communities have grown with incredible vigor — and with them has grown A and M. A never ending flow of support, in terms of money, time, and spirit has issued from the people of the neighboring areas, making our school what it is — and what it will be tomor- row and the day after. Some of State Col- lege ' s most enthusiastic and interested alumni are residents of Las Cruces. The majority of the graduates of Las Cruces High School turn their thoughts toward the nearby college, al- ready familiar to them (and their families) as a result of football games, music and drama programs, conclaves of various sorts, and opento-the-public recreation facilities. Thus college and community form a sound and unified whole — a whole not only econom- ic, but social, cultural, and recreational as well. By supporting the community, the student supports his school. Buy from the merchants of Las Cruces! Remember, they are fellow workers in the struggle to build the New Mexi- co A and M of the future.
