Cadets End Season With Thrilling Tilt By Gene Oates All’s well that ends well, it is said, and the basketball season certainly ended well for the Ag gies Saturday night as they blast ed the “holier than thou” Texas Steers 53 to 52 when Charlie Stevenson sunk a field goal from mid-court two seconds before the gun momentarily out blasted the yelling of the crowd. The smell of battle was in the air when the varsity teams came on the floor because the Aggie fish had just finished making fools of the Texas Yearlings. Hender son started the scoring with a two-pointer, the first of his 20 points. Lang followed to give the cadets a 4-0 lead, but then Houpt tied the score with two goals. With Dawson and Henderson hitting the basket from all angles and getting support from the other members of the team, the Aggies forged ahead and held a 33 to 22 ad vantage at the half. Texas began to close the gap when the teams came back after the rest and in ten minutes the score was 44 to 43 in favor of the cadets. It was also at this point that Dawson fouled out. Things began to look black for the Ag gies, but they were really only starting to fight. Tinker really went to town on messing the visit ors up and he fouled out with the score still in favor of the cadets by one point. Stevenson replaced him with six minutes left. Henderson made the score 48 to 45 for the cadets, but Hull came back to make it read 48 to 47. Lang sank a field goal, but Texas came right back with another. Henderson sank a gift shot to take a 51 to 49 advantage, but Cutner tied the count at 51-all with a bucket. Hull forged ahead for the Steers when he made good on one of two free throws. The timekeeper had the pistol cocked and ready when the last two shots were made. The Aggeis were controlling the ball someway. There would be a fog of players and then a cadet would come out of the heap with the ball and shoot. The oval was passed back to Charlie Stevenson in almost mid court and the little man placed a perfect shot through the mesh to put the Aggies ahead 53 to 52. Houpt tried a desperate shot from under the Aggie basket just as the gun fired, but it went over the backboard, and then hell broke loose in the stands as the large crowd of civilians and the sur prisingly few Aggies went crazy. There were three shots made during the last 39 seconds and it was hard to tell whether you were witnessing a wrestling match, foot ball game, battle royal or just what. The Aggie team played its best, Henderson and Dawson were hot; Texas was playing for all they were worth, but the cadets were just too much for the visitors. Henderson’s 20 points moved him up to fifth in the conference for the year and Dawson pulled up to seventh. It’s baseball and track for the Aggies from now on until the end of the year.

R. B. Bayer, fish star, almost licked the Yearling by him self with his eleven points. With Bayer doing most of all the point-making the Fish built up seven points before the Year lings made a point, after playing ten minutes. Four quick buckets put the young Steers back in the running, but the “little army” went to hitting again and held a 17 to 8 advantage at the half. After the half the Fish took up again where they had left off and held the Yearlings scoreless for ten more minutes while Gibson was building up points for the Fish. The Texas freshmen never had a chance in the one sided slaugh ter. INTRAMURAL HIGHLIGHTS By HUB JOHNSON Good weather prevailed through out the week-end and the results were that for probably the first week-end the Friday and Monday games have not had to be cancelled due to old man weather. Tomorrow night the wrestling finals come off with eight match es of each class. This means 16 good matches, starting at 7:30, and the way they have been run this year ought to finish them up pretty early rather than late. Semi-final matches were run off last night and will be finished to night and as usual in the referee ing togs will be MY. Penny. In the San Antonio ‘Y’ vs the Campus Swim Club there appear ed many of the win spots. Among these were Taylor, who carried off the 440 and the 220 free styles in this week-end’s meet here, and who claimed 100 breast, back, free stroke crowns and was acclaimed the individual star of the fish swim meet. Hedges, who starred in the water polo game against the San An tonio team and who carried off the diving, claimed the 100 breast stroke and the diving contest in the fish meet. With wrestling finishing up his week, the boxers are rounding and pounding into shape for the many matches to start Thursday or Fri day. Over 200 have been classified and are awaiting the timekeeper’s whistle to start—two hundred competing for sixteen crowns. Frederick the Great had the coat sleeves of his soldier’s uniforms de corated with buttons to prevent nose wiping on the sleeves. Confucius Say— . . .
