(U.PJ — Iwanasno Cavazos won a new trial on. a murder charge here today because the court of criminal appeals ruled that a statement made by him and used at his trial may have been due to fear of third de- free methods. 'f Cavazos had been given a 35 year sentence in Willacy county : on a charge of killing Anselmo [ Eay&a iu July, 1940. » Cavazoi testified that after his arrest he was taken to Klngs- : 'yille, required to stand many hours in his bare feet on tin can?, given the "water cure," kicked, slapped and subjected to electric shocks • Until he made a statement which was untrue to escape further ill- treatment. He displayed bits of skin which he said came off .his feet after the tin can treatment. Burden On State j The statement he made at Kingsville was not used at his trial but a second statement made later at Raymondville was used. Cavazos said he made that second statement because of the presence of a "ranger in a black hat" who also had been present when he was mistreated at Kingsville. He said he feared a recurrence of the mistreatment if he did not make the statement. He did not identify the ranger but described him as "tall." In granting a new trial today the court of criminal appeals held ' that the burden of proof was on the state to show that the second statement was a voluntary one. Texas Tech Boasts Writers Among Faculty, Students Seizure Of Initiative From Nazis Demanded . LONDON, March 25. (U.PJ — Soviet Ambassador Ivan Maisky demanded today that the Unitec Nations 'seize the initiative from Germany and make a supreme sf.- fort to open a spring and sum mer offensive which will turn Successful wirlers are by no means oddities on the campus at Texas Technological college. Faculty members and students are included in the surprisingly large number of persons at the college v:hose articles often have been" contributed to and published in various publications, both trade and national. A recent survey shows that 'more than 45 Tech professors have had some of their manuscripts published at one time or another. And although many students also engage in the pastime of'writing either for pleasure or profit, the number of articles which members of the faculty have had published far outnumber those of the students. Types Ar« Varied Some time ago the registrar's of'ice of the college took a survey of professors who had articles pub- ished over the period from 1935 .o 1940 and it was found that the manuscripts numbered several hundred. During this period the most prolific writer was Dr. A. L. Strout, professor of English, who published 36 manuscripts and next :o him was Dr. Lewis B. Cooper associate professor of education and psychology, with 30 articles to his credit. Types of materials published are varied. A majority of the articles were in the same line as was the professor who published the works; i. e., biology professors science articles. Several professors have published text books, man> have published stories or article in national pubiications and others have published articles in trad journals and professional maga zines. Some Aie Fiction A good many of the stories an fiction but a larger portion, ar discussions or articles. Most sue essful novelist on the campus is Dr. A. B. Cunningham, professor f English, who has written and lutlished three novels, all of i'hich have had large circulation. As far as authors go the journal- sm department ranks 100 percent. Cecil Home, head of the journal- sm department has published sev- ral stories and sends articles to •arious newspapers for the pub- icity department. Mrs. Louise C. Mien, assistant professor of journalism, recently wrote a story for he Matrix and Joseph B. Cowan, assistant professor of journalism published an article recently in the •ublishers Auxiliary. All of these professors have written and pub- ished several stories. Students Also Busy ' Students also play a part in the ;ame of writing. Each spring the journalism department conducts a course in magazine article writing and in the past, several students lave sold articles. Mary L. Smith senior arts and science student from Plainview, will have an article in the next issue of Hobbie magazine and R. G. Edwards, junior journalism major from Olton, had a poem published in the winter edition of Country Bard Of the students who do writing on Tech campus most of them are en rolled in courses of journalism Numbers of students send in man uscripts and have large stacks o rejection slips but their sales ar< comparatively few. News stands in Lubboek have frequent calls for writers maga zines and postmen do their shar toward bringing back unused man uscripts and rejection slips.
