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
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.

short, is a good fielder, but he
can’t hit as well as Chubby Nolen.
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
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.
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

right there mean a lot to any ball

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.

All printed personnel leaflets
which have not thus far been
printed will be available by this
weekend, according to Lucian Mor
gan, director of the Placement and
Personnel Division of the Former
Students Association. 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 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.
TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 1940.
In the Regulation National Rifle
Association pistol match, held in
Houston the past weekend, world’s

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.

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
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,

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.
