On the other hand there is that “ole debbil" TRADITION (the caps - are intentional) and in this depart ment tho Steers have everything in their [favor. Since their firat encounter in 1894 the Steers and the Aggies have beep providing the season’s most colorful gridiron encounters for the Lone! Star State, on severs! occas ions fchoy have crammed t into a single season To, date the Steers from Austin have left the cleat-tom turf victors 20 times, the Aggies having tri phed games deadlocked • The Steers wen the first seven tilts beforW they were tied in 190& at San Antonio. This tie so enthused the Aggies that they, came right back the saipe year and pmrwd the Steers’ horns back to the tune of 12-0 in Anktin Since 1902, the Aggies have been able only twice to journey to.Auas .tin and come away with a victory These came in 1909 when s aafetly and field goal netted five points and the Steers were unable to tally and in 1922 when the Farmers took to a 14-7 cleaning, the Capitol City k in 1922, how- College Station with a 6 to r, bviu.! the 1922-23 exchange of victoried on visiting fields, neither the Steers nor the Aggies have been able to go afield on Turkey Day and bring home the bacon, al though the boys from Austin net ted a ‘‘moral” victory in 1983 with a 10-10 tie on JCyle Field. Furthermore next Thursday, if history repeats itself, there will be no necessity for the ground-keeper to mark off the goal line so far as the Aggies are concerned, because history has yet to record an A. A r 1 For the benefit of those football fans who like to make a compari son of the relative Strength of the opponents before selecting the win ner, the Texas A. A M. College publicity staff has prepared the follow ing dope on the Aggies and Texas longhorns who play at Austin on Thanksgiving Day. The comparison shows how players on both teams have per formed against the aamt Southwest Conference teams and gives an equal basis for the fans to pick the winner—perhaps Games other than conference matches are not included In the following figum: 1938 Conference Record two games wan-ier who ever crossed the Texas goal line for a touchdown since the Steers moved into Memor ial Stadium, With this in front of them there much wonder whether Dandy Dick Todd ctn swivel-hip hh elu sive physique across the barrier or whether Big John Kimbrough, the Haskell Hurricane, can plow his mighty frome through that in visible stone-wall that has so suc cessfully withstood the touchdown onslaughts of every Aggie who has made the attempt. Suffice to aay, that the Aggie who dues cross that Texas goal line next Thursday for a touch down will take his place alongside thb immortal grid heroes of all time who have worn the Maroon and White Who will it be. if any? Thursday will see a capacity audience to witness the annual grid iron classic despite the fact thSt both Ibams are hopeleaaly out of the race for Southwest Conference honor^' i i Thebe capacity audiences have jeurneyed to Austm and to College Station for 13 years since both teams entered the tUt knowing the conference crown would go to the winner.

The Aggies again won the con ference championship in 1927, de feating Texas 28-7, but Texas had no chance that year. Texas won the conference title in 1932 by winding up their season at Austin against the Aggies with a 21-0 victory.
