Two now programs were started this year with plans underway to initiate a third. For the first time a major in agricultural economics is being offered under the leadership of Dr. Donald M. Nixon. A minor is now being offered in ement with the addition to the facultj of Lynn Drawe. Ground plans were made this year to introduce a new program in meat science. School Dean Stanley Ander- son hopes the program will be able to start next year. One of the major projects of the School of Agriculture has been the expansion of the graduate program in the areas of plant and soil science and agricultural mechanization. More than 30 new graduate level courses have been added to the cata- logue. There has been an increased research program to support the ex- pansion. Dr. Leo Bailey Hi- John E.

Big news in the art department this year was the approval received for a graduate major. The depart- ment had been able to offer graduate work only as a minor before. The first to receive a masters degree in the field of art was Trudy Loper. An average of 700 students en- rolled each semester in art courses. There were about 150 students either majoring or making art their major teaching field. The main exhibit of the year was the graphics of German-born artist Juergen Strunck, now on the faculty of the University of Dallas. Graduate Assistant Trudy Loper, in an outdoor sketching class, assists students. An all-student work exhibit filled the gal- lery during November. 25 Karl V.

Bible Chairs Provide Knowledge, Servi ce Campus Christian Fellowship Speakers, entertainment, dialogue and sensitivity groups were featured this year by CCF. Begun as an ex- periment in the fall, the sensitivity groups were so popular that 12 were set up during the spring and mem- bership had to be limited to 15 per group. Seven hours of Bible were offered each semester and 160 students en- rolled during the year, according to Director Karl Brown. Catholic Students Association In addition to co-sponsoring the spring film series with CCF, the Catholic Bible Chair offered three Pre-Cana conferences. These confer- ences, primarily for engaged couples, offer eight hours of pre-marriage counselling. Nine hours of Bible courses were offered under the teaching of Rev. Casimir Jarzombek. A yearly total of 208 students enrolled. Baptist Student Union A new director joined the Baptist Student Union when Rev. Forrest Moorehead left at mid-term. Rev. Dean Mathis, formerly BSU director at El Centro College and TWU Nurs- ing School in Dallas, replaced him. This year five Bible courses were offered with a total enrollment of 96. The BSU is especially active in working with international students. Church of Christ Bible Chair This year Robert Skelton, director of the Church of Christ Bible Chair, taught Bible to 115 students. One of the big efforts of the year came when students got the names of 25 families from the welfare rolls. They collected food, clothing and toys for every member of the 25 families, and throughout the year kept in contact with the children. This work fitted into the theme of the year, " Inspired Action. " BSU students worked with neighborhood children in weekly teaching sessions. Tfl P BIBLE x RUp J Biology Dr. John T. Peacock, Chairman Dr. Edwin R. Bogusch Dr. Allan H. Chaney Dr. Richard B.

This fall the Department of Biol- ogy began its master ' s specialization area in marine biology, according to Dr. John T. Peacock, chairman. Also, the wildlife program is now at mas- ter ' s degree level. The Biological department strives to provide a good broad background in biological sciences involving both plant and animal life and is geared more towards field problems than laboratory studies. The department has nine full-time members and all of them except one has a doctor ' s degree. New to the biology faculty this year is Dr. Carl E. Wood, whose field is marine biol- ogy. Eleven graduate assistants who teach labs and make up exams com- plete the department personnel. There are 194 biology majors this year, a record number. 27 Business Administration Chester Alien Charles H. Alworth D. Clark Baker Ruth E. Bell Ronald D. Finster Donald E.

I The School of Business Administration, located on the second floor of Manning Hall, is headed by Dean Dennis B. Ford. It has 24 full-time faculty members. The school is the fastest growing of six schools in the university and offers nine different major fields of study which in- clude: accounting, economics, engineer- ing-business administration, electronic data processing, finance, marketing, man- agement, pre-law, and secretarial science. Currently there are 1,302 business majors and over 100 graduate students attending the school. There are eight stu- dents attending on Central Power Light Co. scholarships and many others are using grants from Humble and Gulf oil companies. Over 200 job interviews are set up per year for business majors through the general placement office. 29 ( Ihemistn Students Use Five New Laboratories of i ] h ill have 60 majors this r, ;m in r.

Engineering may seem like a for- eign language to most students, but 812 don ' t think so. Many of the stu- dents in the program are from for- eign countries. The School of Engineering is headed by Dr. Frank H. Dotterweich and the department is sub-divided into three areas, General Engineer- ing, Electrical Engineering, Chemi- cal and Natural Gas Engineering. Many things attract students to the engineering field, among them the caliber of the personnel and the scholarships being offered. There are two scholarships offered to un- derclassman but the number in- creases to five for upperclassman. The Victoria, Alice, and Rio Grande Valley Chapters of the American Petroleum Institute offer one of the many Engineering Schol- arships for upperclassmen majoring in petroleum and natural gas en- gineering with the only stipulation being that the recipient must reside in the areas that are chaptered and must be chosen by the chapter.

The IS percenl English major increase and faculty enlargements prompted many classes to be held in other build- ings. It also was responsible fur the movement of a few instructors ' offices into other buildings. Along with the increase came new courses such as Transformational (Irani- mar. T. S. Elliot, and Modern British Fiction. Texas A I ' s English Department also sponsored this year ' s annual conference of the Texas Joint English Committe For School and College (District I and II). Dr. Wayne Gunn this year undertook the project of coming out periodically with an English Department Newsletter. An advisory board to assist graduate assistants and beginning teachers also came into being. The board, which is composed of experienced teachers and headed by Mrs. Elsa Howard, attempts to help students and new teachers with problems that they might encounter in the classroom. A literary magazine also made the English scene this year. The magazine, which was solely financed by the depart- ment and magazine sales, was handled entirely by the students. Jerry Ellison served as literary editor, with Carmen Garza serving as art editor. I ir. K .1. i fallaway, Chairman Gretchen V. Barrioa Kenneth R. Bindseil Harmon S. Bortien May E. Campbell Carolyn D.

Degrees in the department range from Notre Dame University, to Texas University and back to Texas A I University. With an expanding over-all enroll- ment at A I, an increase is expected in the number of degrees in mathe- matics conferred over the 19 bache- lor ' s last May, and the 10 last Au- gust. At the graduate level there were three master ' s degrees in May and seven in August. Last year there were 2,240 stu- dents taking 6,720 semester hours, 66 of them graduate hours. A highlight of last year was pres- entation of a paper by Dr. Phillip S. Morey Jr. at the 75th annual meeting of the American Mathe- matics Society in New Orleans. The paper was titled, " A Generalization of Extensors. " What ' s he doing now? " Any questions, class? " Dr. Virgil C. Kowalik, Chairman Dr. Joe L.

Not only does the Corps train its men in various fields of Military Science, but also it partici- pates as a composite of units which represent the University. This year, approximately one-half of the 50 seniors enrolled in ROTC plan to graduate in May. The re- mainder are to graduate in August. There are several extracurricular units within the Corps organization which are composed of students who devote additional time and effort to these units. .Among these are the ROTC Band which performs as an integral part of the Corps and separately in various parades in Texas. The Ranger unit, formed during the 1965-66 school year, is designed to give its members extra training in tactics and counter-guerrilla opera- tions. This year marks the first time for the Ranger unit to visit Fort Sam Houston and the facilities at Camp Bullis. The Drill Team, organized to pro- vide a marching unit to represent the Corps, performs in parades and precision drill competitions in the Fourth Army Area. The Rifle Team competes in matches over Texas and in national meets. This year the team hosted its 10th Annual Postal Match here at A I. The ROTC Band plays " Sound Off " and marches for the Dad ' s Day pre-game cere- mony. tt. gm,.

There over 100 varieties of citrus are grown, and re- search projects connected with citrus production are carried out . The high point of this year has the revelation of a new variety of grapefruit developed by Dr. Rich- ard A. Hensz, director of the Center. The new variety is superior in color for both fresh and processed fruit to the popular Ruby Red variety. A darker red color, the grapefruit is also firmer fleshed than the Ruby Red. I ' r. John E. Fucik is studying the effect of magnetic field on the growth of citrus seedlings. Started in July. U»C 8, he is check- ing for effect on freeze hardiness, flower bud formation, and fruitintr. The new variety in grapefruit, the first new variety in years, is the re- sult of work started by Dr. Hensz in 1959. After 10 years Of development in order to have the deep red color, the firm flesh and seedlessness, bud 1 was released to citrus growers this spring. Four classes a year are held at the Center: Orchard Soils, Citrus Pro- duction. Citrus Entomology, and Gen- eral Horticulture. Each year 70-80 students enroll, most of whom are citrus growers from the Valley. In an effort to aid area growers the four faculty members of the Cen- ter appeared weekly on KURV, KRGV and KRGV-TV on agriculture pro- grams. They also held a half-day school for 100 growers in the spring. A misting process is being tested to see if it speeds the growth of grapefruit cuttings which have been planted in an artificial rooting medium. The leaves always have a film of water as they are misted every six minutes for 30 seconds for 12 hours a day. Pickers select mature fruit with the ' use of a measuring ring. Grapefruits are sent through the sizer at the packing shed to be sorted into three categories. Dr. Hensz checks the rain gauge. Rain and thermograph records have been kept since the early 1950 ' s. The Center has one of the most extensive libraries on citrus horticulture in the state. Mrs. Jean Franklin, in charge, assists Dr. Fucik. ■ 53 A complex of six new buildings have been erected within the last year at Laredo Junior College.

In a new educational concept, A I will be experimenting with the feasi- bility of renting classroom and office space from a junior college and offer- ing junior and senior level courses. Director of the Laredo center is Dr. Billy F. Cowart. This year he has been overseeing the hiring of 15 new faculty members to staff the Laredo center and working with La- redo Junior College officials in set- ting up the program. Since no other college in Texas has such a program, completely new problems are being faced and original guidelines are be- ing worked out. Dr. Cowart expects to have 300 students enroll at the Laredo center next year. Courses in Spanish, Eng- lish, government, history, mathe- matics and business administration will be offered which lead to bache- lors degrees in education and busi- ness administration. One of the problems facing Dr. Cowart involves student activities. Since there are no dormitories and no football teams, student activities will be of a different nature than those on the main campus. Another problem is with the li- brary. The first faculty member hired was Clifford Dawdy, librarian, who has been working between the Kingsville and Laredo campuses this year. He is purchasing $50,000 worth of volumes for the Laredo center. The books will be housed in the Harold R. Yeary Library, com- pleted on the campus in February, 1969, along with the books of the junior college. The confusing part comes for the student when he is searching for a book — A I uses the Library of Congress catalogue sys- tem while Laredo Junior College uses the Dewey decimal system. Laredo Junior College is on the site of old Fort McKintosh, started in 1849. It became a junior college under the leadership of the Inde- pendent School District of Laredo in 1946. The campus has 146 acres and 32 buildings, many of them part of the old fort. A recent building pro- gram has added six air conditioned modern facilities. Laredo Junior College officials feel that the Texas A I branch will be of benefit to their college. According to Dean Domingo Are- chiga the junior college administra- tion believes they will be able to hold more of their sophomore students and will be able to increase their course offerings on the freshman and sophomore level. Since most of the Laredo students transfer to Texas A I because it is so close to Laredo, all questions of transfer can now be handled right on campus and the student will be able to transfer without ever leaving home. The financial advantage to the community can ' t be under estimated, says Dean Arechiga. A student leav- ing his hometown to attend college takes $1,500-1,800 a year out of the community. Librarian Clifford Dawdy has the responsi- bility of stocking A I ' s Laredo library. Director of the Laredo Center is Dr. Billy F. faculty and Upward Bound director.

Young Field of Geology Offers Minor Charles Butler, Tony Reynaga III and Steve DeSpain study mineral specimens during lab. Geology at Texas A I is still a young, slowly developing field. Students may now minor in the subject which offers six courses. Enrollment in geology courses has averaged about 500 a semester. It is a popular course with freshmen as a sci- ence requirement choice. The field is a service field for students in engineering, biology and geography. In the advanced minerology and pet- rology classes field trips are taken into Central Texas. Around Marble Falls, La Grange, Austin and Cedar Park students have an opportunity to study different rock types, granite and limestone quar- ries. The oceanography students travel to Boca Chica to study the coastal features, sand dunes and beach sediments. There are two faculty members in geology, Dr. Paul A. Thayer, and Dr. Cecil G. Lalicker. 57 58 ' J ' :Vfi _ _ ■_ ffiSS15gi Y. V 9 — T- .7 - J5C • - ! ■» ' mS . MLi» ' V. ii. 1 ' N fr r " " » " « 3? w Vft f «. v- tf ! ?,7 ■i , ' ■ r - TT ■ fiU I ■ ■■■ ' ' .

English Classes Take On Tasty Learning Twist Ever heard of college students looking forward to writing a theme? The unbe- lievable occurred in the English classes of Mrs Vivian Tucker and Kenneth Bindseil this year. When it came time to write process themes, students had to prove their writ- ing by demonstrating they could follow the process described in their themes. All the process themes gave recipes, and proof of the pudding came in the eating for fellow students. Among the food items brought to classes were tamales, spaghetti, home- made ice cream, and an endless variety of cakes, cookies and candies. Students who were unable to actually prepare food (mostly men who lived where there were no kitchen facilities) provided chips and soft drinks. Spaghetti hit the spot with Claire Williams Maresch. Besides the calories, process themes added a time of getting acquainted for Jack Stephens, Susan Vaughn, Brenda Sherer, Claire Maresch, and Janelle Burleson. 61 Front: Naif Musallarm, Jassim Haji, Roberto Quintanilla, Ruben Bernal, Silverio Valencia, Isavadharm Teja, Constante Vera, Ricardo Gonzalez.

Foreign Students Organize Soccer Team; Coached by Sahtout, Aided by Hunt Organized three years ago, the members of the Texas A I soccer team are mostly international stu- dents who voluntarily give their time and energy to a sport they love. This season the team won one game and lost one against Trinity University, won against St. Edwards University, and lost against the Uni- versity of Houston. But there is one big difference between the A I soccer team and Trinity, St. Edwards, and Houston ' s — their teams are officially recog- nized and supported by their uni- versities. Texas A I ' s team receives no official recognition and no finan- cial support. Team members bought their own jerseys and socks in order to have some kind of uniform. Travelling to games in other cities is a big prob- lem, however. Since most of the members are international students, they do not have cars. And the money required to stay in motels and eat in restaurants is beyond the means of many. Members hope that the future will bring official support to the sport at Texas A I. The team was coached this year by M. M. Sahtout, assistant profes- sor of mathematics, who has a great love for the sport. They were aided by Ronald D. Hunt, football team trainer, who has helped care for in- juries during games and practice sessions, and has helped get the men in shape. Soccer is unique at Texas A I — a sport so loved that students want to play it even if they have to pay through their own billfolds. Armando Gonzalez (80) moves the ball.

Shortly after this A I was rep- resented at the annual ACP conven- tion in Miami, October 30 t hru No- vember 2, by Editor Adan Saenz. In the meantime controversy brewed between the annual and the Greeks. It involved the wanting of traditional individual pictures on the one hand by the Greeks and group photos on the other by the El Rancho staff. After several meetings with the A I Publications Committee, it was decided that the El Rancho staff had full say so on policies regarding yearbook make-up, layout, etc. Dora Anaya, Associate Editor 64 .

During 1060-70 the newspaper, with a regular staff of eight, for the first time in its history almost dou- bled in size from a four-page to a six-page newspaper. The newspaper also added an extra column per page. Beside staying on top of events as the Fighting Javelinas took the National Championship during the fall, the South Texan maintained a lively pace in covering controversial student political affairs, discrimina- tion charges against the administra- tion, university department events and cultural activities. Numerous news and feature stories were de- voted to the university student as an individual.

Hogs Tie for Conference Crown; Capture Second National Title After three years of trying to cap- ture the national championship, the Javelinas took it all by ripping an outclassed Concordia, Minn., team 32-1 in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Champion Bowl. Some 12,202 paying fans saw the Hogs capture their second national title in 10 years. A I also did it in 1959. The Hogs also tied for the Lone Star Conference crown with East Texas. The win over Concordia was a sweet, sweet victory for Texas A I, who had twice before narrowly missed a shot at the national crown. Last year, A I advanced to the Champion Bowl only to lose to Troy State, Ala., 45-37, and settle for sec- ond place in the national scale. In 1967, the Hogs knocked off No. 1 rated Southwest Texas State 23-21 in the final regular season game, posted a 9-0 record, were ranked No. 3 in the NAIA and still were unable to attain an invitation to the play- offs. This year the Hogs dumped New Mexico Highlands, 28-23, to advance to the Champion Bowl and capture the national title. But it was a tight season for the Javelinas. A I ' s chances for a second trip to the playoffs dimmed at mid-season when the Javelinas, plagued with key injuries, dropped a one-point decision to Sul Ross. At that time, A I was ranked No. 1 in the NAIA poll. The Javelinas dropped to fourth, and New Mexico Highlands, a mem- ber of the Southwest Region of the NAIA along with A I, moved into the top spot. In the semifinal playoffs against Highlands, the Javelinas trailed three times. It looked as if the Hogs might lose for the first time in the semifinals when Highland scored with 2:12 left in the game to take a 23-22 lead. But the Javelinas marched 94 yards in one minute to move in front of the Cowboys, 28-23, and preserve the win. In the Champion Bowl game with Concordia, the Hogs were tied with the Cobbers for several minutes. But then A I, as it had done so many times during the ' 69 campaign, broke loose and claimed a 32-7 verdict and the national championship. The long hard road which the Javelinas had to travel to get the national title makes the trophy now resting in the SUB a cherished prize. i AjS We a long way to go.

Coach ' s Job Is Cycle of Preparation . looking for the acme of perfection. The coach ' s job is a never ending cycle of preparation. The actual 10- game football season is just a frac- tion of his task. Between a training session and a championship game, before a star can be born, there is a coach to lead the way or give advice. . . . The coach diagrams a play on the blackboard, explains it to the players over and over again until he feels that an acme of perfection has been reached. The coach works harder. The sea- son grows tense as the trauma mounts. Injuries slow the team down, but a team trainer patches the is up as best he can for the big game and the head coach tells his fans, " We ' re going out there with what we have and beat them. " At the end of ten games, the team has salvaged a tie for the conference crown with a 0-1 record and is in- vited to the national playoffs . . . again there is a chance to be No. 1. But, you ' re slated to play the No. 1 team in the nation, a team that is undefeated and favored. But the players rally from behind three times to take a 28-2.°» victory and in the next game A I wins the national championship, 32-7, over Concordia and the head coach takes a victory ride with his fans. 104 hard work follows upset a mistake is caught and jotted down in the mind the season grows tense a diagram on the blackboard may spell the key to victory 1 preparing, leading, training 105 Four Early Opponents Fall Fullback Mike Williamson bulls his way for 10 yards and a Javelina first down in the Javelinas ' home opener against Long Beach. Hog Defense Shines In Win Over Tigers — Texas A I ' s Javelinas embarked on their history making season as tiny defeated Trinity University, 21-6, in San Antonio ' s Alamo Sta- dium. Before the game, the Javelinas ' defensive unit was a big question mark. However, the A I defense shined as it limited a potent Trinity offense to 45 yards rushing and 90 yards passing. A I ' s scores came on a 32-yard pass from quarterback Karl Douglas to flanker Dwight Harrison. Late in the second quarter full- back Phelan Allee punched the ball over from the two-yard line to give A I a 14-6 halftime advantage. The final A I score came on a 51-yard scamper by little Guile Vela (5-6, 160). Vela ' s run along with Hopkin ' s extra point gave A I a 21-6 win. rialfback Guile Vela is caught from behind by Long Beach defender. Vela had a 51-yard touchdown run in the season opener. Long Beach Fumbles, Paves Hogs ' Way Texas A I turned two fumble re- coveries into touchdowns to upset Long Beach State, Calif., 21-7, in the home opener of the season. The first A I score came on a quick 11-yard dart by fullback Phe- lan Allee early in the first quarter. A fumble recovery by A I ' s Mar- garito (Buffalo) Guerrero set up an- other A I score. Halfback Henry Glenn scooted in from the 15-yard line for A I ' s second score. Quarterback Gene Walkoviak scored the final tally as he swept across from right end for three yards and a touchdown.

The Hogs came back from the dressing room, after a 13-6 halftime advantage, as if they had everything figured out and quickly lighted up the scoreboard on a two-play, 67- yard drive. A 49-yard pass from Douglas to Harrison gave the Hogs a first down on the Rams ' 28-yard line. On the next play, Douglas hit split end Eldridge Small with a swing pass at the 20-yard line and Small dashed into the end zone untouched for the final Javelina score.

Austin University in a crucial Lone Star Conference opener for both teams. Split end Eldridge Small set a new school record for receiving in one game with seven receptions for 179 yards. A I ' s scores came on a one-yard plunge by quarterback Karl Douglas, runs of 34 and 13 yards by Henry Glenn, passes from Gene Walkoviak to Small and from Douglas to Har- rison, and on a three-yard run by fullback Mike Williamson. 107 Hoggies Run Over ETSU, Fall to Lobos ETSU Offense Held By Inspired Defense A standing room only crowd of 15,500, the largest crowd ever to see an A I game, saw the Javelinas roll up their fifth straight victory without a loss and second in the Lone Star Conference against East Texas, 28-14, to celebrate Homecoming, 1969. The Javelinas scored on an eight-yard pass from Quarterback Karl Douglas to tight end James Respondek to take a quick 7-0 lead with David Hopkins ' ex- tra point. A 36-yard run by halfback Henry Glenn accounted for A I ' s second score early in the second quarter. The final Javelina score came on a one-yard dive by fullback Phelan Allee. Dave Hopkins booted his fourth extra point to account for A I ' s 28 points. It wasn ' t until late in the fourth quar- ter that the Lions were able to score on the Javelina reserves.

Javelinas Ease By Cool McMurry, 21-7 Reserve quarterback Gene Walkoviak sparked Texas A I to a 21-7 win over fired-up McMurry for the Hogs sixth consecutive win. The Hogs started the game as if they were going to run over McMurry as Douglas combined with flanker Dwight Harrison on a 35-yard pass on A I ' s first play from scrimmage to set up A I ' s first score. Fullback Mike Williamson came in from the one-yard line for A I ' s first score. Late in the fourth quarter, Walkoviak hit split end Eldridge Small at the A I 35 and Small sailed 80 yards for the Hogs final score. It was the second long- est pass play in A I history.

The Lobos toppled A I from the No. 1 spot in the NAIA and left the Hogs in a tie for the conference lead. Sul Ross had only three big yardage plays in the game, but two of those helped set up touchdowns that spelled defeat for the Javelinas. The Lobos scored after a 66-yard in- terception return and a 59-yard pass play. A I reached the Lobo 20, 26, 22 and 23 only to be halted by a penalty, once by an interception, and twice by the fired-up Lobo defense. Quarterback Karl Douglas looks for running room against Howard Payne. Douglas scored two touchdowns, once on a three-yard run and once on a ten-yard slant around right end. Split end Eldridge Small sails for A I Touchdown. Small scored on an 11-yard pass play from quarterback Karl Douglas. Patched- Up Offense Sparks Hog Victory A patched-up Texas A I offense and the steady play of the " Border Bandit " defensive unit paced Texas A I past Howard Payne, 27-0, in a crucial con- ference game. The victory kept the Hogs tied for first place in the LSC with East Texas State and Stephen F. Austin University. The patched-up offense managed to gain 516 yards total offense but bad timing in the backfield cost A I several touchdowns. The first A I score came on a three- yard run by quarterback Karl Douglas. He later raced for 10 yards for A I ' s second score. Phelan Allee provided A I ' s third score with a 32-yard rumble late in the second quarter and an 11-yard pass from Douglas to split end Eldridge Small ac- counted for A I ' s final score. 109 ...,t..K. „..=,, ,,...

Quarterback Karl Douglas swept in from nine yards out with only 1:16 remaining in the game to cli- max a last-ditch march. The first A I score came on a 38- yard interception return by middle guard Margarito " Buffalo " Guerrero. Dave Hopkins ' kick made it 7-0.

Both East Texas and A I finished with 6-1 marks in league play. A I has won six titles in the past 11 years. The Hogs iced the game away in the first half, jumping to a 28-0 lead and then staving off the Bobcats in the second half.

New Mexico Falls to Javelinas, 28-23 There isn ' t a record kept for the most exciting final period in an NAIA playoff game. If there were, you can bet it would have been broken Nov. 30 in the Texas A I vs. New Mexico Highlands NAIA semifinal game in Javelina Stadium. The climax of the period came when A I moved 80 yards in seven plays within a 60-second period. The Javelinas scored with 1:12 left in the game for their victory margin in the 28-23 decision. The Javelinas held a 14-13 lead when the big push came. Highlands place-kicker Larry Kelly booted a 30-yard field goal with 7:32 left in the final period to give the Cowboys a 16-14 lead. A I roared back, moving 61 yards in 31 seconds to recapture the lead with Henry Glenn going the last 28 yards for the touchdown. Quarter- back Karl Douglas ran the conversion to make it 22-16 in favor of A I with 6:57 left in the game. Highlands came right back as quarterback Don Woods climaxed a 13-play, 65-yard drive with a one- yard plunge to knot the score at 22- 22. Kelly added the extra point and Highlands led 23-22 with 2:12 re- maining in the game. Then came A I ' s fantastic desper- ation drive for victory. It was split end Eldridge Small who came through with the play of the year as he snared a 33-yard touchdown pass from Douglas for the winning score. Small ' s catch left a chilled crowd of 8,550 tingling with excitement in the 40-degree weather as he out- leaped Highland defender Nelson Edwards for the touchdown in the end zone. The touchdown gave A I a 28-23 lead with 1:12 left in the game and boosted A I into the NAIA national championship game against Con- cordia, Minn. Ill v . .

With 12,202 paying fans enjoying an Indian summer day in mid-De cember, the Javelinas scored on the second play of the game with a 66 yard pass from Karl Douglas to Eldridge Small, fell back to a 7-7 tie, then turned on the horsepower to thrash Concordia. A sensational 84-yard pass and run play from Douglas, voted the game ' s most valuable hack, to flank- er Dwight Harrison set a new record for the Champion Bowl game. The play came with only 31 seconds left in the first half and literally doomed any hopes the Cobbers had of win- ning as it gave A I a 26-7 halftime edge. With 11:14 left in the first half, Harrison capped a 15-play. 80-yard drive with a three-yard dash around right end.

Javelinas Shine During Era of 1959-69 Texas has produced its share of outstanding college football teams over the past three seasons and these squads have been awarded numerous titles, rankings and hon- ors. But none of the Lone Star State grid teams can take claim to having compiled a more impressive record nor of having won more nation-wide attention than the Texas A I Uni- versity Javelinas. The Javelinas ' football credentials for the past three .seasons prove that the years 1959-1969 have been the ■Tavelina Era in Texas college foot- ball. Since winning a national college championship in 1959, the Javelinas have consistently ranked among the best in the nation ' s college circles. For the past three years, the South Texas team has racked up a 30-3-0 overall record, has ranked among the top ten in each small college poll, and has had individuals in most of the honors available to a college player. In 1967, the Hogs were the only undefeated team in Texas and had the longest win streak in the state through the first half of the 1968 season, winning 13 in a row before losing by a touchdown. The Javelinas have won the Lone Star Conference championships six times, including the 1967, 1968, and 1969 seasons. They were ranked No. 1 in the NAIA last fall after winning the national playoffs. The Hogs were ranked No. 1 at the end of the 1968 regulation season. A I captured this year ' s XAIA title with a 32-7 victory over Con- cordia College of Minnesota in the finals. This marked the third time the Javelinas have reached the national finals over a 10-year period. The Texas A I campus was the site of this year ' s NAIA champion- ship tilt. This was the first time in the 15-year history of the playoff that the game was played on the campus of a participating school, a tribute to the A I program and fans. During the period, A I has won two national championships (1959 and 1969) and were national runners- up in 1968. They have also won six LSC championships and fielded two undefeated teams (1962-1967). 120 A I Has Own 12th Man Version Joe Bravenec was A I ' s 12th man. The Texas A I football team came up with its own version of the " 12th man " routine during the 1969 cham- pionship season. They did it against arch-rival Southwest Texas. Just before the half ran out, the Javelinas ran out of backs because of injuries. Joe Bravenec was in the stands as a spectator, and minutes later he was in action on the field. Actually, the Yanderbilt Industrial freshman had been with the Hogs all season, but had been red shirted. With no fullback regulars available, the A I coaching staff had to have him to play the fullback the remain- der of the SWT game. Bravenec carried the ball seven times for 35 yards during his col- legiate debut. In years to come, Bravenec will be able to boast of how he became the Javelinas ' " 12th man " during a key situation in the final regular season game of 1969. Radio Network In First Year Has 4 Stations A new football radio network was initiated this year when the Texas A I University football games were carried live on a four-station hookup that beamed the games to a major portion of South Texas. Andy Cook, manager of radio sta- tion KINE, listed the stations that joined the A I Football Network as KTOD in Sinton, KOPY in Alice, KVOZ in Laredo as well as KINE. All 10 of A I ' s regular season games as well as the two playoff games were broadcast. Jake Trusell, KINE sports com- mentator, teamed with Cook on the play-by-play descriptions. The broadcasting team of Andy Cook and Jake Trussell were heard over the South Texas area. " H " ' - ' " " Banquet Honors National Champs Superlatives were the keynotes of the annual Javelina Awards Banquet this year. Gene Walkoviak captured the Mos1 Dedicated Football Player award for the third consecutive time. The Houston St. Pius quarterback was instrumental in many of the Javelina victories. Karl Douglas, who also hails from Houston, was honored for the second consecutive time as the Most Valuable Offensive Player on the squad. Douglas accounted for more than 2,000 yards through the air during the 12 game schedule and set two records. One of the records came in the championship game against Concordia when he hit an 84-yard bomb to flanker Dwight Harri- son. The other record of 120 completions erased the old record of 103 completions in a season which was held by Randy Johnson. Green Bays ' second draft choice, Alvin Matthews, was named as the Most Val- uable Defensive Player while the best Blocker award was presented to Thomas Domel, senior center from Needville.

The Hoggie cagers nevertheless managed to win 9 but lost 17. The conference record was 5- 13. Six members of the A I team fin- ished with scoring averages in the double figures. Leading the Hogs in scoring was Gary Wideman, 6-5 senior forward from Somerset, with a 18.2 average. Wideman was ranked seventh in both free throw percentages (.800 per cent) and overall scoring. Wideman went on to receive an honorable men- tion in the All-Conference balloting. Dennis Leach, 6-0 senior guard from San Antonio Marshall, closed with a 14.6 average, and this too was one of the top marks in the con- ference. Leach was officially designated as the free throw shooting champion of the Lone Star Conference for the 1969-70 season. Others with double figure averages are Greg Akromis, 6-8 junior center from San Antonio Lee, and Roger Richey, 5-11 senior guard from Brownwood, with 11.3 marks; Jeff Wildenberg, 6-5 freshman forward from Kimberley, Wisconsin, with a 10.7 norm, and Rick Vidaurri, 6-4 junior forward from Laredo, with a 10.4 mark. Akromis topped the Javelina re- bound charts with a final 9.2 average. Wideman, Leach and Richey were the onlv seniors on the roster. Gary Wideman shows form which made him A I ' s leading scorer.

Feb. 17, won their final varsity game in the facility that has been dubbed the " Alamo " by A I Students. The Javelina capers downed Hous- ton Baptist College, 69-64, as they left the fabled old gym just as they entered it — on a winning note. The game was the final home game for the Hogs in Javelina Gym. Next season they move into their new $2 million building. A I, which made a habit of los- ing in the closing minutes of the game all year, rallied in the final two minutes to win their last game. It was a basket by Roger Richey with 1 :31 left to play that gave the Javelinas an unrelinquished lead, 64-62. After that it was A I ' s game all the way. To many A I players and fans, the " Alamo " is the scene of many memories. In its time it, too, was a thing of beauty. The cost of the initial phase of the old gym was $28,500. With its completion for the 1927-28 basket- ball season, the SOUTH TEXAN an- nounced, " home games this year will be played in the new gym, and every- one can be comfortable, regardless of the weather. " The size of the initial playing court (60x100) was increased (75 x 100) along with the final construc- tion on the building in 1930. Also, seating was added to the east side. With the construction underway on the second and final phase of the gym, the campus paper boasted, " when the building has been com- pleted and the proper equipment in- stalled, this institution will have the facilities for a health program sec- ond to none. " The total cost of the gym construc- tion was $58,500. Coach McDonald encourages his team to wind up the season as a winner. Cheerleaders led fans in the battle cry " Remember the Alamo! " 130 In the last quarter the Javelinas started their victory rally. The Hogs trailed in the early minutes of the game. Dennis Leach knotted the score at 62-62. Roger Richey put the Hogs ahead to stay with 64-62. 131 132 Tracksters Cop Elusive Border Olympic Crown A I tracksters put an end to the " glorious dream " of Texas Southern who for the past 10 years had dom- inated the Border Olympic meet. The Javelinas amassed 61 points to 48 for second place Dallas Baptist and 39 for Texas Southern. A I swept the first two places in the 120-yard high hurdles. New York sophomore Bob Daniels took the gold medal as another sophomore, Bob Weathersby, took second place. Robert Gonzalez, Falfurrias jun- ior, won his fourth Border Olympic mile run with ease to start a strong A I showing in the distance events. Gonzalez won mile run titles his last two years at Falfurrias High School and took the championship in his first season with the Javelinas last year. Joseph Garza finished second in the 880-yard run and another Fal- furrias product, Homer Martinez, finished second in the three-mile run and third in the mile-run. Overall the Javelinas showed sur- prising strength in the field events, especially Bob Tumlinson, a senior from Crystal City who had not par- ticipated in track as a collegiate.

Edinburg senior John Mathews shows form which makes him an outstanding player on the team. Netters Face Tough Slate A I ' s tennis team had rough going as the team ran into injury and scholas- tic problems. The team was held together mostly by returning lettermen John Mathews, (3 years) senior from Edin- burg and Gary Rauschuber, sophomore one-year letterman from San Antonio. Among the highlights of the team was its two victories over St. Mary ' s of San Antonio. The netters shut out the Rattlers twice by identical scores of 6-0. Winners in the match included Rau- schuber and Mathews in the singles (first round) and Reed Smith and Gor- don Buckley in the other round. 139 Gary Rauschuber slams the ball with a forehand drive. Gordon Buckley gets set for a backhand drive. Reed Smith rears back for a hard serve. 140 Women ' s Athletics Take Campus Place A I ' s girls finally got something to participate in other than intramurals as girl ' s volleyball and basketball teams were formed or bettered this year. Both teams were coached by Mrs. Betty Brewer. The basketball team played such op- ponents as Wharton County Junior Col- lege, Incarnate Word, and St. Mary ' s. A I competes in the Texas Commis- sion of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women. The team won the district title last year and reached the second round in the state tournament. The team once again reached the state finals by defeating the University of Corpus Christi in the final to capture District 6 honors. A I ' s girls will be one of 12 teams advancing into the state tournament in Nacogdoches. The A I team enters the state tourna- ment with a 7-3 season mark.

Guy Lombardo Two different organizations) both having aa their purpose the cultural betterment of Kingsville and A I are the Kingsville Community Con- cert Association and the Artist Course Series. The Kingsville Community Con- cert Association is the local affiliate of the National Community Concert Association. It ' s purpose is to bring cultural entertainment of high qual- ity into the Kingsville area. Through a membership campaign held each year, the organization obtains the necessary money to finance the vari- ous events. This organization is maintained by the community and its members come from all areas of employment in the surrounding dis- trict. The Artist Course Committee on the other hand is composed of fac- ulty members and students. It strives to add to the cultural enrichment of the University by bringing to the campus a series of concerts, lectures, and other entertainment of high quality. The Committee also func- tions during the summer session to bring similar high quality produc- tions but with fewer numbers sched- uled. Since only members of the Com- munity Concert Association, whether they be regular or student members, are allowed to attend the Associa- tion ' s events, the Artist Course Se- ries purchases 200 tickets for each event and makes them available to the student body on a first-come first-serve basis. During the 1969-70 season the Art- ist Course Series sponsored various events, among which was a profes- sional production of the Shakes- pearan tragedy, " King Lear. " Also appearing under the sponsorship of this group was a program featuring various acts, including flamenco, singers, and a Mariachi Band. The Community Concert Associa- tion provided Kingsville with Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians and featuring Tonia Bern Campbell, Baritone William Walker, Guitarists and Folk Singers Addis Crofut, and Duo-Pianists Arthur Gold and Robert Fizdale.

Music Educators Give Band Ovation In Dallas The Texas A I University Band, under the direction of Dr. Joseph L. Bellamah, surpassed nearly all of its previous records with one of the busiest seasons during 1969-70. Football season always finds the marching band in preparation for half-time shows and pep rallies, but since the band had been invited to appear as one of the honor bands at the state convention of the Texas Music Educators Association, they began concert season earlier, with marching and concert season being combined. The band travelled to the Sam Houston game and added their spirit and support. Though the weather was bad, band members came and stayed to the final victory of the NAIA playoff game. When the Jav- elinas received the Bowl bid, the band again performed and cheered. During the fall the band presented Pep rallies an ' a way of life to members of the marching band. This one was held early- one Saturday morning as a Farewell and good luck to the football players as they left for San Antonio and the Trinity game, last of the season. On the Mall march concerts on Dad ' s Day and Homecoming. At Christmas, a semi-formal dance was held in the SUB Ballroom. Before the start of second semes- ter, band members returned early and spent several days in rehearsal for the upcoming tour and TMEA Concert. Tour included performances in Corpus Christi, San Antonio, Austin, Dallas, Terrell and culminated on the fourth day with the convention con- cert held in Dallas, February 12. The band performed to a " standing room only " audience of approximate- ly 2000 music students and educators from all parts of Texas. On the concert the band played five numbers, including a premier performance of the newest composi- tion for band by A I Music faculty member Lawrence Weiner entitled " Introduction and Scherzo. " At the conclusion of the concert, the entire audience rose to give Dr. Bellamah and the A I Symphonic Band a standing ovation. The A I Band was the only one of the three honor bands to receive this. In April they performed during the Fine Arts Festival, playing sev- eral numbers by composer Alfred Reed, special guest during the Festi- val. The band gives several On the Mall march concerts each year. First is the Dad ' s Day Concert in the fall. The next one was held on Homecoming and the third during the spring. . 147 uits aid Dr. Bellamah in many ways. They direct the band in his absence, are responsible for many of the busini ts, and plan the half-time shows. Here with Dr. Hellamah are Alex o and Ernest Muzquiz. Band officers handle much of the business of the band. They aid in planning tours and other activities and are assisted in their duties by a council composed of a male and fe- male representative from each class. Shown here are: John Schuch, 2nd vice-president; Barbara Hassler, secretary-treasurer; ErnestMuzquiz, president; Deanna Gillaspy, repor- ter; and Richard Roper, drum major and 1st vice-president. A familiar sight to every band student are the Continental Trailways buses which carry them to all out of town events. Freshman girl band members are responsible for making signs for the vehicles. I JAVEUNA 148 Music Education Provides Practical Experiences A modified type of student teaching program has made its successful debut in the music department this year. It ' s Music 315, Elementary School Music Methods, under Mrs. C. Johnston. This course is designed to develop an awareness and knowledge in students of methods of teaching music to the ele- mentary school child. In the past this course has been con- fined to the classroom, though elemen- tary school students from St. Gertrude ' s and St. Martin ' s schools have been brought to class when certain techniques were demonstrated. Beginning this year, though, Mrs. Johnston divided her class into groups, each with a topic which they researched and prepared. Then, for a number of weeks the groups visited St. Martin ' s school and taught the children in a class- room situation. Children enjoy participation and action, one thing; which this course stresses. It in- volves them in the subject and helps to develop coordination. Here students learn songs and, along with this, some of the basics ot tne language of music. The development of an appreciation of good music should begin early. Here students study the enjoyable story of " Peter and the Wolf " told in music. 149 Dr. Johnson and the Civic Symphony at one of their formal concerts. Violins E. D.

He obtained his doctoral degree in French Horn and conduct- ing from the Eastman School of Music. Before coming to A I he organized and conducted a college-community orchestra in Wichita, Kansas. Rehearsals are held regularly each week with extra times scheduled as needed. 150 Civic Symphony Premiers Works By Weiner, Perry The A I Civic Symphony is com- prised of musicians from a wide area. Wind and percussion players are mainly music majors. String players come from the general student body, faculty, community, Corpus Christi and Valley areas. This year students from Edinburg High School, under the direction of Albert Coen, assisted on the November 1 concert. During the year the symphony pre- sents three major concerts plus the Children ' s Concert, participates in the Fine Arts Festival, one opera and two summer musicals. The 1969-70 season included per- formances of " Quatro Madrigales Amatorios " by Rodrigo and sung by Yolanda Longoria, graduate assistant in music; the premier of " Prologos Synkretismos, " a new composition by Lawrence Weiner of the A I music faculty; and a first performance on campus of the " Festival Mass in G " for Chorus and Orchestra by Dr. R. D. Perry who this year retired from the A I mathematics depart- ment. Standard symphonic repertoire in- cluded works by Brahms, Berlioz, Prokofiev, and Haydn. Robert operas. Scott, music faculty, led the orchestra in the summer musicals and the spring The summer presentation of " Kiss Me Kate " required players to double on several instru- ments. The Children ' s Concert presents music in an informal atmosphere, which they will enjoy and will help broaden their musical scope. Ernest Muzquiz, principal percussionist in the Civic Symphony and a senior music major, is the newest student member of the Corpus Christi Symphony. He served as student con- ductor on the Children ' s Concert, conducting the " Serenade in E " by Richard Strauss. 151 Bassoon Quartet Is Newest of Ensemble Groups Members of the Bassoon Quartet are Barbara Hassler, Karen Tate, Deanna Gillaspy, and DeWayne Kirk. New in the list of ensembles spon- sored by the music department was a bassoon quartet added in the fall semes- ter. The group made their debut per- forming in several student recitals and played together throughout the year in reading new literature gathered by di- rector Dan Duncan, instructor in music. Other groups include two saxophone quartets, also under the sponsorship of Duncan and a Brass Choir directed by Jack Flouer, assistant professor of music. The sax quartets also appeared in sev- eral student recitals and entertained at various functions. One of the groups performed at the program held on Dad ' s Day in Jones Auditorium. The Brass Choir performed in con- junction with the Concert Choir in a Christmas Program and presented their own recital in the spring. Students in the Brass Choir are: Trumpets — Ana Garza, Larry Stites, Larry Pavel, and Joe Compean; French Horn — Miguel Flores, Ruth Dahlstrom and Rene Guzman; Tuba — Ben Delgado; Baritone — Gerald Henke and Mike Robinson; Trombones — Thomas Wittie, Fer- nando Ornelas, David Wilbum and Jack Flouer, director. 152 J . t,., ' : Featured in one sax quartet were Rolando Zapata, baritone saxophone; Donald Higginbotham, tenor saxophone; Alfred Cortinas, alto saxophone; and Humberto Gonzalez, tenor saxophone.

Choir Director Roberts Recognized By Music Students In recognition of his outstanding contributions to music and in ap- preciation of his work at Texas A I University, Frank Dean Roberts, as- sistant professor of music and direc- tor of the A I Concert Choir, was presented with an award by the Phi Mu Alpha Music Fraternity at the Choir ' s Christmas Concert. Mike Gil- bert, Phi Mu Alpha president, made the presentation. Because of a strong faith in and respect for Roberts both as a musi- cian and educator, the Pi Kai Chap- ter decided to recognize him in this 7 T-TT . " J Jp -» jH i Jr i 1 •-_ L t i ■ JR ±S k fashion, according to Gilbert. Roberts holds B.M. and M.M.E de- grees from North Texas State and is a member of the Texas Choral Directors Association, the American Choral Directors Association, the Music Educators National Confer- ence, and the Oklahoma Music Edu- cators Association. Prior to his posi- tion at A I Roberts served as as- sistant professor of music and direc- tor of opera at Oklahoma Baptist University, assistant choral director at the University of Texas, choral director at South Park High School b in Beaumont and graduate voice tutor at North Texas State Univer- sity. Between 50 and 60 students se- lected from the University at large comprise the concert choir of Texas A I. While required of voice majors and voice principals, the choir serves as an important elective to other music majors and those from other areas of study. The repertoire covers choral literature from the Renais- sance to contemporary. The choir performs at least three times on campus each year — fall, Christmas, and late spring. In addi- tion to these the choir occassionally tours within the state. This spring a tour was planned to the San An- tonio-Austin area to perform in both formal evening concerts and high school assembly programs. Serving as Choir Officers for 1969-70 are Lynne Weynand, secretary-treasurer; Ron- ald Crawford, vice president; and Tom Estes, president. Singers rehearse for their Christmas Concert. Dir ector Alfred E. Tellinghuisen A I Singers Give Performances Over South, West Texas The Texas A I University Singers are a select vocal ensemble whose membership is determined by audi- tions open to all students on the cam- pus. Through the years it has won wide acclaim for its program versatility and sensitive interpretations of a wide range of vocal literature. Last year ' s 34 program appear- ances included television via video- tape, civic, church and public school assemblies. Program commitments of the past year included 16 appearances during an eight-day spring tour through sections of West Texas and the Rio Grande Valley. The Singers enjoyed a highly suc- cessful tour of Europe in 1960, and of the Orient in 1964. Under the joint sponsorship of United Serv- ice Organizations and the National Music Council, the A I Singers are scheduled for an eight-week enter- tainment tour of military bases in the European Command this sum- mer, with June 17 given as the de- parture date.

Music, Speech Departments Update Facilities and Methods During the summer months one of the classrooms in the music building underwent much reworking, with the result of the formation of a class supplied with electric pianos. Now instead of music majors fulfilling their piano requirement through private lessons they register for piano class. An innovation to KTAI came this year when the station added an FM system. The new stereo tape recorder-record player units were purchased for the music depart- ment and were used for the electronic music in " Help! Help! The Globolinks. " They are also used in the classroom. 158 Costuming Major Element in A Fs Plays and Operas Costuming is one of the major things and one of the biggest head- aches in putting on a production. For a number of years this aspect of theatre for musical and speech productions was handled by students and volunteers or just by searching through the closet. Outfitting per- formers in the musicals was for many years done by Mrs. Robert C. Scott, wife of music faculty member and musicals director Robert C. Scott. Everything from measuring actors and buying materials to making the costumes was done by her and her assistants. Her most recent work dealt with " Once Upon A Mattress " and " Kiss Me Kate. " Beginning with the fall semester, A I hired Larry Life, instructor in speech and drama, to fill this capac- ity for both the speech and music departments. Larry Life adjusts a headpiece on one of the godesses from the speech production " The Tempest. " Mrs. Scott adjusts a costume on Laura Vela who played Kate in the musical production of " Kiss Me Kate, " presented during the second session of the summer. Mrs. Robert Scott was always a familiar sight at the sewing machine in preparation i for any of the musicals.

Arabelle looks on bewilderedly. 161 Spencer Oldham and Ray Saenz play the machine game. Pam Hill goes through the mirror exercise. The class learns to do the trust lift. Drama Students Strive to Develop Trust, Sensitivity The drama department at A I under- went a change in teaching methods this year with the addition of Larry Life to the faculty. Life made use of sensory- awareness exercises in his classes to make actors aware of their entire selves — mind and body. These include relaxa- tion exercises in which the actors pre- pare for performance and the mirror game. The students also learned how to explore their environment totally. Life stressed the necessity of an en- semble feeling in order for actors to work together as a cooperating body. The machine game demonstrates the ef- fectiveness of such an exercise. Sensi- tivity exercises were used in the classes to help the students become aware of themselves and each other so that they may work together as an ensemble. 162 .

J ' 1 i gs-k 1 164 Art Students Discover Many Different Avenues To Explore Individual Expression and Creativity Any students pursuing the study of art at A I learns from the first that he possesses free rein on his choice of media by which he may ex- press himself. From sculpture to painting, to throwing objects all to- gether, the students find that their only guidelines are their own crea- tivity. Some pursue the study of art in a serious vein, desiring to teach it themselves one day or to enter into some phase of commercial art work. Still others find an art course or two to be an enjoyable addition to their curriculum — either for pleasure or elective requirements. In any case, and for whatever reason, every stu- dent strives to bring to the fore his own particular skills. Yet others find their interest to be in studying art with the idea of trying to understand and appreciate what they see of the works of others. Through this the student learns to be sensitive and perceptive to the artist and his message through art. 165 Greeks 166 $£S.3JB ; « - ffm t . j " PNS The Alpha Chi Omegas have for their officers Becky Dayton, third vice-president; Barbara Cole, first vice-president; Linda Spradley, presi- dent; Paula Winsett, second vice-president; and Shari Whitley, treasurer.

During freshman orientation the fraternity served refreshments to in- coming agricultural students and in- vited them to an open meeting to learn of Alpha Gamma Rho. The group was host for the Homecoming Open House in the ag building, and worked closely with the school in the FFA and 4-H contests held on the campus. This year Alpha Gamma Rho had 26 active members, took in 10 pledges during the fall and five in the spring. To become a member of Alpha Gamma Rho a student must be an agriculture major or plan to go into a related field. On the social side, Alpha Gamma Rho held mixers with the sorori- ties and sponsored several dances. On April 18, Founder ' s Day, a formal banquet followed by a dance was held at the Americana Restau- rant in Alice. 175 Front: Mike McGehearty, Paul Gape, William Poole, Carl Christen- sen, Daniel Young, Craig Wentrcek, Rafael Tercero, Leopoldo Hill, Walter Adcock, Elny Uribe, William Dunn.

Tau Kappa Epsilon is the youngest social fraternity on the campus, founded in 1968. Gamma Delta Chi was created on the principles of equality and broth- erhood. In the spring of 1969 the fra- ternity became affiliated with Tau Kappa Epsilon, the largest international fra- ternity. To promote school spirit the TKES obtained an 1878 church bell. It is used at school events such as football games. The bell made its debut during the NAIA playoff games. Following the NAIA Championship game, TKE held a formal party at Jack ' s Swinging Door, Wilson Tower, in Cor- pus Christi. The Young Society played for the event. During the spring the fraternity took part in the Alpha Delta Pi playday. In the fall TKE sponsored a coke-toss and -candle shoot-out at the annual Carnival. 177 nranizations 178 Accounting Society Attends Seminar On Federal Taxes Members of the Accounting Society were the guests last fall of the Corpus Christi Chapter of the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants when it held its Twelfth Annual Federal Tax Seminar.

The Afro-American Society had a full year of activities in its second year of existence. During football season the group made signs supporting the Jave- linas and ran a member for Homecoming Queen. They also protested the display of the Confederate flag at the A I vs. Concordia game. A tutoring program was set up for club members in all disciplines, discus- sions on Black history were held, and the society presented a program for the Campus Christian Fellowship during the fall. On Friday nights the group held record hops for high school students, and at Christmas a box of goods valued at $45 was given to a needy family. On the political side, the society was instrumental in six members being elected to the Student Council. Highlight of the spring semester was Afro-American History Day held Feb. 19. Students wore Afro dress during the day, which culminated with a program on Afro history and thought. 181 A i iie Club Highlights Its Year with Round-Up II III II On the agenda of Aggie Club activil i ' nr this year was the favorite i i nt of all, the annual Aggie Round-up, After a week marked by members wearing western attire, complete with red ban- danas, Round-up ended with a barbecue and dance at Mesquite Grove.

Held with the cooperation of other engineering organizations, about 50 students attended. AIME also helps with the Annual Engineer ' s Day and the En- gineer ' s barbecue. During the year speakers from Humble, Mobil and Atlantic-Richfield oil corpora- tions addressed AIME members. A field trip was made to offshore drilling oper- ations in the Gulf of Mexico abo ut three miles off Padre Island. The purpose of AIME is to bring the student into contact with the industry in which he will eventually work and to form a fellowship between members. Thirty-five engineering students joined during 1969-70. To join, one must be an engineering student with an interest in natural gas engineering and related fields. AIME is led by Alan Dolezal, vice-president; Milton Seim, treasurer; Gary Slusher, secretary; and Chuck Pyle, president. Front: C. V. Mooney (advisor), Nasser Dai. Hassan M.

The society, which was started in 1967 as a local society, received word in June, 1969, that it had been approved for membership in the national society. On November 21, 1969, the formal charter ceremony and initiation took place. The coeds marked the occasion with a tea. The society boasts 56 charter members and has an average active membership of 25. It strives to promote intelligent living and a high standard of learning and to encourage superior scholastic attainment among freshmen women. In order to be qualified for member- ship, a coed must have a grade point average of 3.5 based on a minimum of 15 hours and a maximum of 30 hours taken prior to the completion of the freshman year on a full-load basis.

Aid Given Community in United Fund Drive 1969-70 Intercollegiate Knights were headed by Marcelo Marroquin, chancellor; William P. Saenz, earl; Raul J. Garcia, duke; and Jose E. Cano, scribe. Intercollegiate Knights provided serv- ice to the university and community as they helped with school elections and col- lected money for the United Fund Drive. Delegates of the organization attended the area conference held at Pan American College, Edinburg, and the national con- vention which met in Salt Lake City, Utah. This year there are 20 members, an increase of three over last year. To be a member of the Knights a man must be a full-time student and have a grade point average of 2.0. Besides providing service, the Inter- collegiate Knights try to promote loyalty to their fraternity and alma mater. They strive to build school spirit each year and part of this is through conducting a Duchess pageant. The Intercollegiate Knights were started on this campus in December, 1967. Although the local chapter is rela- tively new, the national organization is the oldest service fraternity in the nation. The motto of the organization is " Service, sacrifice, loyalty.

The Political Equality Party was formed last year for the purpose of se- lecting qualified candidates for the Stu- dent Council and other elected positions. The success of the party was demon- strated during the fall Student Council elections when 65 per cent of the PEP candidates won their races. The party holds the belief that all races should be represented and that the objective of student body leaders should be representation and not personal gain. PEP raised money by sponsoring sev- eral dances. This was used for campus- wide campaigns in which the platform and candidates were presented as a uni- fied ticket. The organization has a nomination committee which selects candidates. The party hopes for a unified Student Coun- cil which has the objective of advancing the student body as a whole and not a certain race or group. 230 A I Bandswomen Are New Sorority Tau Beta Sigma Beginning last spring as the Texas A I University Bandswomen, this or- ganization recently achieved full status as Tau Beta Sigma Honorary Band So- rority.

Speleological Society Travels on Caving Trips An A I caver checks a passage in " Cueva de Carrizal " near Estacion Candela, N.L. Mexico. Probably the most travelled group on the campus is the Texas A I Speleologi- cal Society. Members make caving trips to such caves as Devil ' s Sinkhole, Gruta del Palmito, Sotano de las Golondrinas, and others in both Texas and Mexico. In order to be qualified for member- ship in the society, spelunkers must be able to take apart and reassemble a car- bide light in the dark. They have to prove they are in good physical condition and know the safety practices by repelling at least two 50-foot lengths and one 100- foot length, and they must have used a prussik and a jumar the same distance. After having been founded in 1967 by Gill Ediger, John Kriedler and Tom Levi, the club has gained in membership until it now totals about 40 members. In 1968 the A I cavers became officially affili- ated with the National Speleological So- ciety. One of the students, Gill Ediger, now serves as chairman of the Texas Speleological Society.

Every time a student in the class- room learns the old and explores the new, each time he marks a ballot or takes the perrogative to voice his opinion on an issue, he is contribut- ing to the overall picture of life and its true perspective. Marked progress in educational facilities indicate the rapid change and growth which a university needs to function as a tool for interaction among its students — and its true perspective.
