tS — Students learn about Space Defense Initiative Program STAR WARS exas Tech Air Force ROTC members got an inside glimpse of President Reagan ' s " Star Wars " program when three-star Lt. Gen. James A. Abrahamson spoke to the organization in March. Abrahamson, who heads Reagan ' s Space Defense Initiative program, spoke at the Air Force ROTC ' s " Dining In " banquet. Each semester, the organization sponsors either a " Dining In " banquet or a " Dining Out " banquet. " Dining In " is reserved for Air Force ROTC members only, and " Dining Out " is open to guests. Tech ' s Air Force ROTC is composed of 125 cadets, 86 ofthem first-year cadets. Tom Rideout, corps com- mander and cadet colonel, said about 15 percent of the cadets are women and that the women perform as well as the men. He used April Draper, a cadet colonel and vice corps commander, to illus- trate his point. " My vice corps commander is a woman, " said Rideout. " She ' s doing an excellent job for me. " Some of the guys don ' t do as well as some of the girls, " Rideout added. " It just depends on their motivation. " Cadets are divided into two categories. The general military corps (CMC), is for first- and second-year cadets, and the profession- al officers corps (POC), is for third- and fourth-year cadets. Air Force ROTC mem- bers take field trips every semester, participate in the Texas Air Force ROTC Field Day and host a Mili- tary Ball. The organization visited the General Dynamics air- craft assembly plant and Carswell Air Force Base, both in Fort Worth, in the fall and the Altus, Okla., Air Force base in the spring. Tech ' s Air Force ROTC sponsors the Texas Air Force ROTC Field Day. Rideout said all Texas Air Force units send cadet teams to the field-day com- petition. Track and field events dominate, but an egg-toss competition and a round-robin volleyball tournament give a change of pace. The Military Ball, which was sponsored in March, is a joint effort between Air Force ROTC and Army ROTC. Upon graduation. Air Force ROTC cadets are named second lieutenants and are initiated into the U.S. Air Force. — Camille Wheeler Air Force ROTC — 291
