Research Bill
Walton on Committee To
Push Bill in Congress
President T. O. Walton and A.
B. Conner, director of the Agricul
tural Experiment Station, returned
to College Station Monday after
a week’s trip to Washington, D.
C. , where they attended the regu
lar mid-winter meeting of the ex
ecutive committee of the Associa
tion of Land Grant Colleges and
Universities of which Dr. Walton is
Dr. Walton stated that the
most important business taken up
was that concerning the bill which
the association is sponsoring for
the purpose of providing funds for
engineering and industrial research
in all land grant colleges and uni
versities in the United States. The
bill has already passed the Nation
al Resources Board and the Forest
Department Board and will be in
troduced to Congress sometime
this week. If the bill is passed,
and according to President Walton
it has a good chance to do so }
A. & M. will be greatly bene
fited as will be many other schools,
as industrial and engineering re
search is a very important phase
of American progress and funds
are needed badly for carrying on
the work.
A sub-committee was appointed
at th^ meeting and consisted of
Dean E. B. Norris of V.P.I.,
chairman; Dean Ferguson of the
University of Nebraska; and Dr.
Walton. These men are supposed
to look after the bill and see how
it is progressing in Congress.
President Walton said he saw
plenty of snow in Washington—
10 inches, in fact. He also stated
that on his trip up, there wasn’t
a mile of ground between College
Station and Washington that
wasn’t covered with snow.
H. J. Reinhard, entomologist,
gave the Entomology Club a dem
onstration of the insect collection
of the Agricultural Experiment
Station after the business meeting
of that club Thursday night. This
collection is composed almost en
tirely of insects from Texas and
is growing rapidly. The location
of each insect on the shelf is facil
itated by indexed files. Reinhard,
who is credited with having made
the collection what it is today,
said in regard to the collection that
the surface had just been scratched.

The fire, which was of unknown
origin, started at 5 a. m. Sunday
morning and lasted over an hour.
Once the blaze got started, efforts
of the College Station Fire De
partment to save the buildings
were of no avail.
The buildings were valued at $3,.
600 and were owned by Forrest
Jones of Bryan, who had $2,000
worth of insurance on them. Oper
ators of the station were H. T.
Holland and Clyde Clark.
The owners of the four demol
ished cars were R. H. Hensel, Ford
Motor Co. of Bryan, J. W. Graves,
and a student whose name could
not be determined. It is believed
that three of the owners had in
surance on their cars. The Ford
Motor Co. had a new Ford on dis
play that had only been driven
three miles—the only part left
worth reclaiming was the motor.

of all the players on the Aggie
team, and presented it to Bert
Pfaff, donor of the best-blocker
A surprise gift from Jesse Hol
man Jones, federal loan adminis-
tratof and friend of the college,
was the next to be uncovered. Mr.
Jones donated to the lettermen and
to Coach Norton costly 21-jewel
lifetime Elgin gold pocket watches.
The Chase Holland jewelry store
of San Angelo next presented the
entire team and Coach Norton each
with a sterling silver spur tie clip
having a “T” bearing across it
in gold the word “Aggies.”
The original drawing of the
play-by-play picture of the Sugar
Bowl game drawn by Francis “Nig”
Miller was presented to Coach Nor
ton as a remembrance by Ralph
“Andy” Anderson of the Houston
Press. Andy also presented John
Kimbrough with another All-Amer
ican award, this one from Paul B.
Williamson, keeper of a national
football rating system.
In choosing the best blocker on
the Aggie team, Bert Pfaff, ex-
Aggie and oil man of Tyler, could
narrow his choice to no fewer
than two, so he presented dupli
cate awards of Longine wrist
watches to Herb Smith and James
Thomason. Thomason received the
award last year also.
To the three co-captains of the
team during the past season—Joe
Boyd, Herb Smith, and Walemon
Price—the Aggieland Pharmacy
presented Sheaffer lifetime foun
tain pen and pencil sets; and its
most-valuable-player award, a pen
and pencil desk set with engraved
gold plaque, went to John Kim
brough. Coach Norton also re
ceived a framed pennant bearing
the 1939 schedule of the Aggie.
All senior squad men will receive
passes to the 1940 corps dances
as a courtesy of the social com
mittee, it was announced by social
secretary Charlie Hamner. All-
Conference men and all coaches
were presented wallets by the
Kreuger Engraving Company. Non
lettering squadmen got consola
tion awards of engraved leather
billfolds from Lipscomb’s Phar
macy. The school awarded all
squadmen expensive handbags.
In the past it has been the cus^
tom to present the teams that won
the conference championship with
Officer^, and Secret Service
agent Leo J. Williams has warned
East Texas merchants to watch
for counterfeit half dollars and
quarters. A flood of t*ne spurious
coins, all date 1935 and 1937, have
been circulating in this section re
gold footballs. This year, since
the team not only won the confer
ence, but was untied and undefeated
and named Number 1 in the na
tion, the council decided to make
the awards unique gold footballs
appropriately embossed and stud
ded with diamonds.

America,” “Shortenin’ Bread,” and
“Marching Musketeers.”
All 54 members of the squad
were at liberty to bring members
of their family and their sweet
hearts, and they did. Toastmaster
Ashburn had the boys rise to their
feet and introduce their guests to
the large audience.
Speaker of the evening was Dr.
F. M. Law, president of the A. &
M. Board of Directors, who began
by congratulating the “champion
ship” Glee Club and inviting them
to sing in Houston in the near
future. He praised New Orleans
officials and citizens for the
excellent treatment of visitors and
for the efficient manner in which
they handled the crowd. He re
called the days when he, himself,
was a student at A. & M., during
which time the first football team
was started. Mr. Law called speci
al attention to the article that ap
peared in “Life” magazine two
years ago depicting Texas A. & M.
as “nationally unknown.” “The foot
ball team has gone a long way in
remedying this defect,” he said. “In
fact,” he stated, “in the last four
months this college has received
more recognition than that maga
The Aggie football team was
the special subject of Mr. Law’s
praise. “They showed themselves
to be the champions they are when
they were able to get up off the
floor and fight to a victory. They
have strengthened the bond that
binds all graduates from Aggie
land together. Aggies and ex-Ag-
gies stick together all over the
world because the school has the
most college spirit of all the col
leges in the nation.” Then he de
clared that A. & M. is blessed with
the finest coaching staff in the na
The 210-piece Aggie Band was
the next subject of Dr. Law’s
praise and approval. According to
Dr. Law it is the best band in
the world. He said, “My wife and
I always get a thrill from listening
to the Aggie Band.”.. He also said
that if there was any doubt of the
Band’s making the trip to Califor
nia with the team next year to dis
pel all doubts, because it is defi
nitely slated to go.
In speaking of next year’s sched
ule, Dr. Law showed that the
Council had tried to arrange games
with the University of Southern
California and also with Ohio
State, but it was decided that such
a long trip would keep the boys
away from their studies for too
long a time. Besides, as he said,
a champion has its privileges in
defending its crown. Those
schools should try to come to A.
& M. for a game sometime. Texas
A. & M. is not a college set in
cold-blooded money-making. Even
though the failure to schedule
these games meant losing nearly
$100,000, the emphasis here is still
placed on education.
Dr. Law’s closing remarks urg
ed the followers of the team to
make themselves like Janus, the
two-headed Roman god, and look
proudly on the past and hopefully
to the future. “Hats off to the
past; coats off to the future!” he
Following the address of the
evening, Coach Homer Norton an
nounced the lettermen, and that
started the avalanche of gifts and
awards that a proud citizenry and
a prouder student body showered
on them. Jackets, watches, cups,
silver tie clasps, billfolds, blankets,
and medals were a part of the
“loot” that the boys carried home
with them.
Those who had not had the
chance to see the technicolor pic
tures of the Sugar Bowl game
were invited to stay and see them
after the close of the evening’s
