Transcript UH is blessed to have one of the finest hotel and restaurant schools in the world. Hotel magnate Conrad Hilton couldn't stand being the richest man in the country who didn't have a college named for him, so he gave the university beaucups bucks and, viola, the Conrad Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management came to pass. The school provides HRM majors many opportunities for lab work right on campus. The future Conrad Hiltons of UH are trained in every facet of hostelry, from putting paper strips around toilet seats to learning how to burn a corn dog. Here an HRM major does research in one of the many fine restaurant facilities operated on campus by the HRM school. The student is doing a study in vending machine design by determining just how hard one must kick the machine before it yields change. The M.D. Anderson Memorial Library is named for a man many in the Houston business community refer to as the "Michaelangelo of the Tax Break." While the library is housed in a stately structure — recently expanded at no small expense — its contents have come under criticism from a few nattering English faculty. The malcontent- ed professors say that theft of one of the Library's 12 books now give UH a deficient collection. The book in question was a rare first edition of "The Hardy Boys in the Haunted Filling Station." The faculty also contends that the senseless defacing of another rare work — the 1948 U.S. Department of Agriculture pamphlet, "Know Your Silage Dump" — has brought shame to the entire university community. Despite the whinings of a few, UH students may still look with pride at the monument to Mr. Anderson. Left, student watches gleefully as she is given a brief reading from some of Milton's shorter works. The readings are given hourly in the library. b9
