E.C.Jeep' OATES BATTALION SPORTS EDITOR Apple Knockers On Northern Trip; Will Play S.M.U. Twice and T.C.U. Once The Aggie nine has had good-f luck against conference competition at home, winning two games each from Rice and T. C. U., but to day they start their northern se ries. Today and tomorrow they meet S. M. U. at Dallas and Sat urday they move over to Fort Wox-th for their final tussle with T. C. U. The Cadets have not proved that they can win away from home and it is lucky that they meet “weak sisters” on their first swing. It will accustom them to the howls of a hostile group of fans and they will be ready for the stronger teams, Baylor and Texas, when they meet them in Waco and Austin. If the Cadets play the brand of ball against these teams that they did against Houston here Monday, they should have no trouble in taking all three games, however it is to be remembered that it was this northern swing a year ago that took them out of the conference race. A. & M. is going to have to get better hitting if they are to be formidable contenders against Bay lor and Texas. In conference games to date only Stevenson, Alsobrook and Rice are hitting above the .300 mark. Stevenson, being a pitcher, cannot be counted on accept in the Behind The Scenes TROUBLE Calls for Expert Attention Call for STUDENT CO-OP North Gate games he is pitching. Alsobrook is hitting .357 and Rice .429. “Red” Ballow, at shortstop, is playing great ball. He is not get ting any hits, but he is getting on base and scoring runs, and he is covering that number six position like one Honus Wagner. The game against Houston was the best contest this writer has seen played at College Station, ex cept the Cleveland-New York game a couple of years ago. It was fast and smooth and wasn’t filled with errors, parades of pitchers, pinch hitters, and sorry umpiring. Stein- graph, a Texas League umpire, is the best ump that has ever done the guessing here. Ole Diz Dean is still keeping the boys wondering. St. Louis sold him to Chicago a few years ago after he paid off the mortgages on the Cards, Red Birds and Buffs. He drew enough fans into the Chicago park to pay for himself, even after his arm was gone. Chicago was about ready to get rid of him when he sat the New York Yanks down for eight innings in the World Se ries a couple of years back and the Cubs decided to keep him. Last year he didn’t go so good, but every now and then he would step out on the mound and make suck ers out of the opponent batters. He was a holdout this spring and no one seemed to mind. Now he comes along and sits the St. Louis Browns down for five innings with two scratch hits, the best pitching shown by any pitcher so far this year in spring training. MANY SAILORS WANT TO ENTER HOUSTON REGATTA I ran a notice in this column last time stating that the Houston Yacht Club wanted some A. & M. students to sail in their races in June and yesterday I was swamped with applicants. Sailing is one of the best sports that this writer knows of and it is not surprising that so many boys ARTISTS A NB MODELS e- We’re artists in summer clothing—and our new models for 1940 are master pieces of color, coolness and design.

During the last few years the people who live around the Texas coast have really gone in for water sports. For years there were only a few who really took advantage of our water, but now the people are as enthusiastic as the people in the East and North west. HARVARD PROF FLAYS PHYSICAL EDUCATION I noticed an article in the San Antonio Light the other day in which a Dr. Earnest Hooton, Har vard’s famous anthropologist, took a swing at physical education. It is in parts as follows: “Speaking before more than 1,000 leaders of physical education and recreation last night, Hooton contended that physical education Ts the victim of some sort of in fantile paralysis, contracted per haps through no fault of its own, but through an extreme suscept ibility to the malady which is destroying man—an avid pursuit of culture with an almost total dis regard of his animal organism’.” Hooton charged the crowd with “playing checkers in the firehouse while a conflagration of human evo lution and human civilization is raging all around. “Americans”, he continued, “con sider themselves a sports-loving nation. But vicarious exercise—of the sort one gets by watching a football game—is not beneficial at all.
