h & k- 1. BMp i < E.C.Jcep' OATES BATTALION SPORTS EDITOR Baseball Team Looks Pretty Good; Bass Is a Greatly Improved Hurler The baseball team looked a lot better Saturday than it did the first time out. Sam Bass looked much better on the mound than he did a j'ear ago. Last year we had to watch him bat with one hand 11 and at that he got hits. Satur day, using both hands, he rapped out a double and single in two trips to the plate. Charlie Stevenson pitched the last half of the game and it looks like he can go. He bore down in the pinch and had the Brewers breaking their necks. Ballow, who is holding down Nottingham Fabrics Men who take their fa shions straight mix their coats and trousers!

Bill Henderson looks better than either Pugh or Moon on first base. He may not be able to hit as well against curve ball pitching, but then the first base position has not produced a hit this year, and both Pugh and Moon have been the victims of strikeouts. Moon and Pugh have both let men be safe at first for failure to touch the bag. Scoggins, who is finally in the graces of the Registrar’s Office, is slapping the apple. He hit three for five, one a homer, Saturday. • WHITE TEAM ROUNDLY OUT- GAINS REDS; KIMBROUGH AVERAGES 6.9 YARDS PER The Whites (A squad) outgain- ed the Reds (B squad) 233 yards to 36 in the sports day game Sat urday. John Kimbrough account ed for 62 of those yards on nine carries in addition to returning in tercepted passes 44 yards. John also made two touchdowns and two extra points during his first half stay before Coach Norton releas ed him for the day. The passing of Pugh and Jeffrey looked good. They completed four out of five attempted for 51 yards including one from Jeffrey to Ab bott for a touchdown. Bud Force threw lots of passes, but he con nected with only two and had two intercepted, one for 40 yards and a touchdown. Baseball Victory Climaxes Sports Day We don’t think the team looked quite as good as it did a year ago on Sports Day. Of course, there are many excuses. They had their dance the night before and, too, there were many of the regu lars who were not on the field. Marshall Robnett, Bill Conatser, Derace Moser and James Thoma son did not play, and those boys right there mean a lot to any ball club. • BUD FORCE IS FASTEST 50- YARD MAN IN UNIFORM, BUT LOSES TO JOHN KIMBROUGH In the 50 yard dashes between the football players in full uni- f~ MEET THE STETSON “PLAYBOY” . . .

FRIEDMAN - SHELBY Price $3.25 Agency LOWS MIG POST CADETS DEFEAT GRAND PRIZE BY SCORE OF 11-5 Green Bay Packers Win Intra-Squad Football Tilt By Eugene Oates Aggie Sports Day turned out with an Aggie win over Grand Prize and a 7 to 0 win by the Green Bay Packers (A football squad) over the remainder of the football squad. Half of the proceeds from the gate go to the Finnish Relief, and their share will be about $130. John Kimbrough, with two touchdowns, two extra points, and an average of 6.9 yards per carry, was the outstanding star of the football game. Marland Jeffrey and Jake Webster were other backs who were exceptionally noticable. Jeffrey appears to be the most im proved player on the squad. Kimbrough’s first touch result ed from his pass interception on the Giant 40 and return all the way. His try for point was no good. His next jaunt was good for 9 yards and a counter after Pugh had passed to Bama Smith for 28 yards following Kimbrough’s interception of another pass. Kim brough added the conversion. Jeffrey made the third touch down after Kimbrough had carried to the half-foot line. In the fourth period the team completed its scoring taking a pass from Jeffrey for the tally to climax an 80 yard drive with Webster and Jeffrey doing most of the ball advancing. WIN 11 TO 5 Marty Karow’s baseball pacers hitting hard behind the pitching of Sam Bass, Charlie Stevenson and Roy Peden, pounded four Grand Prize pitchers for 13 hits and 11 runs in eight innings while the Brewers were collecting eight hits and five runs. Chubby Nolen, ineligible Aggie shortstop, played center for the Sud Suckers and hammered out a homer and a double against the pitching of his former mates. J. D. Scoggins slammed out a four bagger and two singles in five trips to the plate while bat ting in four runs. Dave Alsobrook also hit three times, collecting a double and a brace of singles.

To date there have been approximately 300 sets of the leaflets printed, which leaves about 100 sets that are still to be distributed. form Bud Force produced the best time with a 5.6. The races were run in heats and Force had to com pete against John Kimbrough, “Bama” Smith and Marshall Spivey in the finals and Kim brough won in 5.8 with Force tak ing second. Jimmie Knight won the runoff for the linemen in 6.00. Centers proved to be the slowest with Herman winning in 6.4. Ralph Henderson is probably the brightest-looking prospect on the track team among the newcomers. Ralph ran third in the 880 in the Border Olympics, but the only two men ahead of him were the Ride out twins of N.T.S.T.C. • DEAN KYLE WILL CONTINUE AS CHAIRMAN OF ATHLETIC COUNCIL AT AGGIELAND Dean E. J. Kyle has withdrawn his resignation as chairman of the Athletic Council. He did this aft er many ex-students and the mem bers of the Board of Directors ask ed him to continue. The Dean, when he withdrew his resignation, asked that he be allowed to re sign after the 1940 season. Dean Kyle has been connected with athletics at A. & M. since 1903 and the only reason he wants to sever his connections is that he does not have the time to prop erly fill the position. His work with the School of Agriculture and other administrative duties makes it impossible for him to give as much time to athletics as he thinks he should, as chairman of the Council. The Dean puts in the time that he should, but much of that time is taken from his private life and time when he should be resting. BATTALION TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 1940. PAGE 3 AGGIE PISTOL TEAM CONTINUES CHALKING UP HONORS IN MATCHES In the Regulation National Rifle Association pistol match, held in Houston the past weekend, world’s records were broken with plenty to spare. In these matches the shooters are classed according to their ability, which is determined by the individual average score in previous matches. The classes are Master, Expert, Sharpshooter, Marksman, and Tyro. At 20 yards, Albert Ogden from Alice set a new world’s record for .38-caliber slow-fire by scoring a 185 out of 200. Don Lawrence, ’33, of the State Department of Public Safety, set two new world’s records; these were in the .22-caliber class and included slow-fire with 190 and twenty-shot timed fire with 192. For the Aggies, Bert Burns placed first in the tyro slow-fire and took first in the tyro match of slow, 10 timed, and 10 rapid. L. C. Kennemer won first place in the marksman’s match. C. A. Lewis came in third in the expert slow- fire class, while his brother Bill tied for first in the sharpshooter’s slow-fire. Each man won a second-place medal in the team match, shooting against the Dallas Police, Houston’s Bayou Rifles (two teams), the State Department of Public Safety team, and the Galveston Customs officers. The Aggies making the trip and their classification at the! matches were: C. A. Lewis—Expert; W. E. Lewis—Sharpshooter; L. C.

SAM KAPLAN BRYAN Shreveport Poloists Beat Aggie Team The Shreveport polo team beat the cadets 10 to 4 here Sunday in a match that provided lots of scoring, thrills and spills. Playing under National Polo Association handicaps, the Aggies would still have lost by one goal. Shreveport has a national handi cap of six goals. The play was fast throughout the game. The skill and experi ence of the visitors parried frenzied thrusts of the Aggies at goal and then pushed their own scores as the play of the hosts ebbed. The going was nippy and a few near- mixups occurred; however, there were only two falls and no serious injuries. Scivally and Humphries were the high scorers with 3 and 4 goals. T. A. Williams scored two of the Aggies four. Asa Jones was sparking the play and Maloney, entering the game in the fourth chukker, turned in an excellent performance. Here is the score: Periods 1 2 3 4 5 6 Tot. Shreveport 1 1 4 0 0 4—10 A. & M 0 10 10 2—4 CAPTAINS OF MINOR SPORTS MEET TONIGHT Captains of minor sport teams will meet tonight to set a defi nite date for the coming Minor Sports Festival. The meeting will be held in Room 119 of the Aca demic Building at 7:00 o’clock. The dates to be discussed are the week-end of March 29-30 and April 5-6. On one of these dates all minor sports teams are to be host to a visiting team either from a school or a club. The com petition will be spread out over Friday and Saturday with the only interuption being the Aggie- Houston Buff or the Aggie-Rice baseball game. When a gunman robbed a bank in Otterville, Canada, recently a mob of citizens chased him through the town, trapped him in a store and recovered the $200 loot. C. H. Hall, street car motorman of Tampa, Fla., thought it a joke when told he was the father of triplets, but on his arrival home he found the news to be true. Golf Team Set For Championship Year With five lettermen back and t|wo outstanding newcomers in V. C. Denton and Bert Burns, the Aggie golf team seems set for the best season it has ever had. On paper it appears that only the University of Texas will give the Cadets much trouble. The returning lettermen are Henry Hauser, Bill McMahan, Hen ry Richards, Jack Gourley and I. Q. Mayhew. Friday evening the team will go to Fort Worth where they will compete in an invitation match Saturday. In addition to the match Hauser will enter the driving con test and McMahan will enter the putting and pitting contest. The following week on March 23 the University of Missouri golf crew will stop by for a match with the Cadets at the Bryan Country Club course. The Aggies have nev er lost a match on this course. During the year the Aggies will meet Rice here, Texas in Austin, S.M.U. here and T.C.U. in Fort Worth before the conference meet which wil be held in Houston. The Cadets will probably play a home- and-home series with Sam Houston State Teachers College. The con ference meet will be played on the Brae Burn course in Houston. That is the course where Jimmy Dema- ret, the big money winner of the year, keeps his clubs hanging up.
