I Wednesday, B^ebruary 7,1951 THE BATTALION Page 3 Steinke Named Backfield Coach Gilbert Steinke, defensive backfield coach at T e x a s A&M last season, has been promoted to backfield coach succeeding Dick Todd, who resigned to take a similar job with the pro Washington Redskins. A&M’s coaching staff is now complete except for a freshman coach. Head coach Harry Stiteler said a successor to. Coach Perron Shoemaker, who has gone to the University of Georgia as end coach, may be on hand when the Aggies begin Spring training Feb. 12. Steinke, a little All-American halfback at Texas A&I, played pro football with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was backfield coach at Trinity University one year before coaching the Oklahoma A&M freshmen in 1949. Steinke divided his time last year between the varsity and freshman teams and scouting for the Aggies. Speaking of Todd’s resignation, Stiteler said, “we surely hate to see Dick drop out of collegiate foot ball, but we’ve known for some time he has considered quitting 1 coaching 1 entirely so he can de vote all his time to ranching 1 and farming. With his job with the Redskins, he will now be free in the Spring for his ranch work.” ‘School May Equal Team \ OU Proxy Oklahoma City, Feb. 7—(A 5 )—Dr. George L. Cross, president of the University of Oklahoma, told a State Legislative Appropriations Committee yesterday: . . “We’re working to develop a university the football team can be proud of.” The Oklahoma football team was voted No. 1 in the nation last year.

Bryan Phone 2-1423 Southside, College Phone 4-9876 by the Intramural Football Champ ions, A QMC, as they battled to the top this season. The secret of the Supplymcn’s success this year may be credited to many things. Chiefly their vic tories can be charged to a great team spirit and an overwhelming desire to win. Although the, Suppliers had one of the best break-away runners in the league in the person of Bud Yeager, not once during the entire season did the QMC depend entire ly upon, the talents of one man. Each man in the backfield—Char ley Bruchmiller, Frank Trahan, and June Clark—took turns regu larly in battering the opposing forward wall. June Clark, who called the plays for the Supplymen, was one of the best ball handlers in the busi ness and perhaps the smartest sig nal caller seen all season. Not once did it seem that Clark was hard-pressed by any situation his team faced and always he seemed to call the right play to meet the challenge. Not to be overlooked is the firey and spirited line that led the fast charging backs. It is a well-known fact that the backs gain the glory and credit for a team’s victories while the linemen take the hard- knocks and bruises to open holes and gain no recognition. Jess Fletcher w r as the fire- horse guard that opened the holes for the offensive backs and plug ged the gaps for the defensive line. Fletcher was by no means the QMC’s only lineman but he seemed to spearhead the offensive and de fensive lines and add the necessary incentive for the big, bruising line man to carry on the battle. The ability to come from behind and pull games out of the fire was a characteristic of the QMC company all year. In the early season games the Supplymen seemed to have little trouble in defeating their oppon- In the first four conference bas ketball games, the Texas Aggies have held their opponents to a 44.8- point average. By comparison the powerful Oklahoma A&M team’s average for the season is 44.2.

In the finals the QMC gridders took the lead 6-0 early in the con test. Toppcrwine’s conversion at tempt was no good as the pighide hit the crossbar and bounded under the goal posts. The infantrymen scored next and oddly enough their conversion at tempt also hit the crossbar but it went over and the Infantry com pany was ahead, 7-6. With three plays remaining in the contest the QMC drove 40 yards culminating the drive with a 30 yard touchdown pass to win the game,. 12-7. The QMC gridders consider this game the toughest they played all year and also a major triumph in more ways than winning the championship. Louis to Fight Tonight; Champ Not Disturbed Miami, Feb. 7 —(AP)— Joe Louis meets Omelio Agra- monte of Cuba tonight at Mi ami stadium in a ten-round fight that Louis hopes will be the next-to-last before the return battle w'ith Ezzard Charles for the heavyweight title.

And what I like best of all, he’s vicious.” “When Joe Louis gets x'eady, I w'ill be ready,” said world’s heavy weight boxing champion Ezzard Chaxdes here last night dui’ing an interview. Ags ‘Frozen’ Out of Cage Lead; TCLI Gets Bitter Revenge, 30-27 By FRED B. WALKER Associate Sports Editor Coach Buster Brannon’s Horned Frogs experienced sweet revenge last night as they fi-oze an eager Cadet five into submission and out of the SWC cage lead, 30 to 27, before 4600 howling fans in Will Roger Coliseum. Somewhere between boos and misguided cries of “We’ll beat you at your own game,” TCU gi'abbed a bite three-point lead and managed to hold it until the end of the game, but the excitement and ri valry of that second half all but turned the Coliseum into a mad house. The first period was a “still” compared to the last 20 minutes. A&M snagged the initial tip-off and tallied four points—two liber ties by Raymond Walker and a field goal by John DeWitt—while the Toads wei’e missing eight tries. But field goals by forwai’d Ted Reynolds tied things up in short order. Free throws and field goals were traded by both quintets and the game slowed down beyond the ap- pi'eciation of the Frog rooters. But only for the moment as TCU push ed the speed of play and left the court at half-time with a five-point lead after Fromme and center George McLeod tallied three points apiece on field goals and fi’ee tosses. Jewell McDowell and Bud dy Davis were the only Aggies able to score in the closing minutes as they di’opped in a free thi*ow each. Within a minute and twenty-one seconds after the start of the sec ond period, the Aggies had over come their five-point deficit and gone into the lead by a lone tally.

The determined Frogs brought the ball down only to lose it to an alert McDowell. The ball was push ed into Davis and A&M trailed by only one.

TCU for ward Bryan Kilpatrick tied the score a few seconds later. The fans had now all but x’each- ed a crescendo of frenzy as the FrogS forced A&M to play the TCU way. It was race, race, race for three full minutes with the home team guarding the Aggies the length of the court. During the mad melee Farmer scored for A&M but Kilpatrick quickly sank two to make it 26-26. This was the last of the Frogs as seen by the Maroon and White.
