EVERYBODY READS The BATTALION CERTIFIED CIRCULATION 2,500 THE BATTALION Published Weekly by the Students’ Association of the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas VOL. XXII COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS, MAY 26, 1915 NUMBER 33 HIS HOTHE MADE TRACK CAPTAIN NEW LEADER HAILS FROM LAND OF CATTLE, CACTUS AND COYOTE. 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 track team. 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. CAMPUS ITEMS. 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 Friday afternoon. 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.

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. The features of the game were the consistent pitching of Smith and Miller and the game fighting on both sides. The percentage of the three high est clubs: Clubs— Bid. Won. Lost.. P. C.

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. Letters were given to Russel, Cole man, L. J. Skeeler, W. J. Skeeler, P. H. Olson, Tom Cherry, Beringer, Rigney, Brailsford, Kendricks, Hook er, Powers, Gilfillan, Thodberg and Menke (manager), and a “T-AMC” to Minier. H. BROOKS WINS IN IN STOCK JUDGING CONTEST HELD SATURDAY CLASS PRESIDENT LEADS. LAST YEAR’S RECORD BEATEN Won by H. Brooks with 524 points out of a possible 600. This is remarkable work done by Brooks, considering that he is work ing to pay his way thru school, has found time to win a football “T,” and broke the pole vault record. His high score is notable.
