HIS HOTHE MADE
NEW LEADER HAILS FROM LAND
OF CATTLE, CACTUS AND
HAS REMARKABLE RECORD
Sunday afternoon, at a meeting of
the men who won T’s in track, Hans
Rothe, A. & M.’s veteran pole vaulter,
was chosen to lead the Parmer track
team in 1916. Hans is well liked by
everyone, and especially by those
who know him best. As to his ath
letic ability, it speaks for itself. He
is the man who won the pole vault
twice in succession without touching
the bar a single time. Hans is also
something of a broad jumper, as some
of you may have heard. However,
aside from all this, Hans is the best
qualified man for the place. He has
had more experience and knows more
about track than any other man on
the team. Before he came here.
Rothe was a star pole vaulter, broad
jumper and hurdler at Marshall
Training School. Next year will be
his fourth and last year in the Aggie
Hans hails from Hondo, the queen
city of the cactus and rattlesnake
country,, and from what he said the
other night one would infer that he
has not lost all his wild and wooly
ways, despite the civilizing influence
of four years at the A. & M. College.
The statement was that he is going
to have a track team here next year
that will win the Southwestern meet
if he has to shoot some men to get
them here. And as a general rule,
you can rely on what Hans says.
Mrs. A. T. Potts was the charming
hostess to the Five Hundred Club on
Friday afternoon, entertaining six
tables at five hundred and one at
forty-two. The spacious screened
porch was beautiful with many pot
ted plants and roses. A delicious two-
course luncheon was served.
Mrs. W. C. Procter returned to her
home in Greenwood, Miss., after a
most pleasant visit to her parents,
Mr. and Mrs. W. F. Procter.
Miss Mary Terrell has returned to
her home in Navasota.
Miss Mildred Mabee leaves for her
home in Illinois on Thursday. Miss
Mabee has been with her sister, Mrs.
Wilmon Newell, for the past several
months, and it is with regret that it
is learned that she is now leaving.
Misses Aileen and Louise Procter
will entertain the Five Hundred Club
Miss Crawford has returned to her
home, after a most pleasant visit to
Mrs. Robert Smith.
It is understood by his friends, al-
tho as yet unannounced, that Max
Gilfillan has lately become engaged
to a young lady of Waco.
THESE ARE THE MEANS SOME
A. & M. STUDENTS EMPLOY TO
MAKE WAY THROUGH COLLEGE
The Agricultural and Mechanical
College of Texas has been called, and
very properly so, the “poor man’s
college.” Almost 50 per cent of the
students enrolled during the term
just closing have contributed some
thing toward meeting their expenses
in college. A student labor fund of
$1,000 has helped 267 boys thru and
many have found employment outside
of that department.
Here are the ways in which boys
received help from the student labor
rolls: 35 engaged in carpentry and
general repair work; 5 cleaning up
laboratories, etc.; 5 feeding stock and
doing general work around Animal
Husbandry barn; 5 milking; 13 cleri
cal, filing, keeping records, etc.; 8
keeping college library and working
in departmental libraries; 35 band
and orchestra; 3 night guards during
holidays; 3 janitor work; 25 labor
in armory; 3 drafting and tracing;
11 stenographic; 17 wiring for the
Electrical Engineering Department;
2 operating motion picture machine;
13 gardening; 14 delivering laundry
in halls, keeping records, etc.; 9 meal
guards; 30 general labors; 5 firing
engines; 2 tree surgery; 24 cleaning
up and beautifying grounds. Total,

Monday, in the most hotly contest
ed game witnest on Kyle Field, G-H
defeated E-F by a score of 2 to 1,
which entitled them to the champion
ship honors, thus winning for the
first time the sweaters for G-H. Both
teams fought hard, and until the
ninth neither team was able to cross
the plate. However, with two men
on bases, Ellis smashed out a bingle
that scored the winning run, thus
ending the company league contests.

Last Sunday night “Ug” Russell
was chosen captain of next year’s
baseball team by this year’s “T” men.
Russell is undoubtedly the man for
the place. He has won three letters
in baseball, as he made the team as
catcher in his Freshman year, and he
has held down the pivot position ever
since. He has always been a heavy
hitter, especially when hits were
needed. He hit .344 this year and
fielded 1000. “Ug’s” specialty is peg
ging to second. Whenever Russell is
catching the men never try to steal
second, for they know it is useless.
Russell is undoubtedly the man for
the place. He is always in the game,
fighting hard. He not only plays his
own position well, but he instills the
“pep” into the rest of the players
that makes them play just a little
bit harder than they know how. And
when anyone slips anyhing by Happy
they are going some. “Ug” keeps his
eye on the ball all the time. Under
his leadership, and with the members
of this year’s team that will be back,
A. & M. ought to win the Southwest
ern championship next spring.

broke the pole vault record. His high
score is notable. Last year the high
