The press release accompanying print #1770 of this negative states: Lubbock, Oct. -- Texas Tech's four-man Dairy Industry Judging Team will test its skill Oct. 21 in San Francisco against 10 other teams from throughout the nation at the 23rd Collegiate Students' International Contest in Judging Dairy Products. Sharpening taste buds for the competition are Max Miller, senior from Brownfield; Dan Adkisson, senior from Lubbock; Marlin Fergusen, senior from Lorenzo; and J. B. Baccus Jr., senior from Anton. Coaching the team is Dr. J. J. Willingham, Dairy Industry department head at Tech. The team will leave Oct. 15 for the contest that offers Fellowships of $1,800 and $1,650 at schools of the two highest ranking teams. Co-sponsoring the annual contest are the American Dairy Science Assn. and Dairy Industries Supply Assn. In the international contest, ten samples of milk, butter, cheese and ice cream -- ranging from poor to excellent quality -- are judged by each contestant. There are 81 decisions on fine points of quality to be made and entered on special scorecards for each sample of milk and ice cream and 80 for butter and cheese. According to the Dairy Industries Supply Assn., Texas and California will have the largest number of students competing in the contest. Carrying the banner on the Lone Star State to California will be the Texas Tech team and one from Texas A&M College.
