“We are particularly anxious,”
Fuermann concluded, “to impress
on the corps the fact that it should
not expect the first edition of Ag-
gietone News to be flawless. The
staff has done the best work in
its power and we are sincerely anx
ious to receive any and all criti
cism which the corps may have to
offer following the first showing.”
To concern Aggie aetivites on
and off the campus, the first edit
ion of Aggietone News will include
pictures of the Aggie-A. & I. game,
the San Antonio corps trip, regis
tration, College Night, intramural
games, and general scenes around

Rodeo Promised
Bronc Busters
Come on you so called Texas
Aggie Cowboys. Here’s your chance
again to get a share of the Texas
Aggie” Rodeo purse when on Oct
ober 18, one of the biggest shows
of its kind in the southwest will
get underway.
Entries will be taken Wednesday
night October 9 in the Animal In
dustries lecture room and every
student who can rope, ride or bull
dog is invited to attend. The entry
fees will probably be the same
as last year although there may be
a slight change.
With “Shorty” Fuller directing
the Show and Johnny Harclin hand
ling the advertising, the rodeo
promises to be one of the high
lights of the year. Others select
ed to handle various events are
Jake Hess in charge of calf rop
ing, Travis Richardson, Steer rid
ing, W. L. Pendleton, bareback
bronc riding, and Jack Cleveland,
Bill Hampton and Bill Ward in
charge of building pens and chutes.
Tommy Stewart is handling the.
programs while Victor Loeffler is
taking charge of the tickets.

Sleeping Sickness In
Horses And Mules Found
Recently In Brazos County
Sleeping sickness in horses and
mules which has been found in
North Texas is now making its
way South and has made its ap
pearance in the vicinity of Brazos
county, Dr. A. A. Lenert, head of
the department of veterinary med
icine and surgery at Texas A. & M.
College said Friday.
We have had approximately 20
cases of the disease recently and
they all came from nearby Edge,
Kurten, Normangee and Madison-
ville,” he said. “We do not keep the
animals in the hospital here but
simply give them treatment and
prescribe the nursing to be follow
ed at home”.
He explained that while the dis
ease is infectious it is not con
tagious and can be prevented by
innoculation done by a veterinar
ian. After the animal takes the dis
ease early treatment may save it
but in many cases it dies due to
delayed treatment, he added, in
advising preventative treatment.
“The animal may stand up alone
for five or six days with the dis
ease and still be cured but once it
gets down the chance of recovery
is very small,” he explained.
Team Entrains
For California
Late This Evening
(Continued from page 1)
is expected to be a thriller from
the start to the finish. The two
gie second-stringers for a touch-
teams will send many stars in
to the fray, and the turf should
hold the tread of scintillating runs
and blasting power drives after
the final gun.
The pick of the Southwest sports
writers will accompany the Aggies
on the trip. From Houston will
come Dick Freeman and Bruce
Layer; Dallas will send Charles
Burton; from Waco will come the
indominitable “Jinx” Tucker; and
the Aggies own newspaper, the
Battalion, will send their sports
Editor, H. O. “Hub” Johnson, and
Photographer Phil Golman.
Aggietone News, the A. & M.
newsreel, will be covering the game
to bring back a filmed descrip
tion of the clash.
The Aggies, in their conflict with
the Uclans, will be going after the
third win of the season, and na
tionwide predictions are inclined
to believe that either club will have
to play championship football for
any kind of a victory.
Council Meets
For Organization
The new-born Inter-Church
Council of Texas A. & M. held its
first meeting for organization in
the parlor of the Y.M.C.A. with an
attendance of 18 members. Frank
Loving, senior student in the hand,
the originator of the idea and the
chairman of the group, was in

sponsorship of the Y. M. C. A. and
selected as the faculty advisor, Al
fred C. Payne, newly appointed
secretary in the Y. M. C. A.
Those who attended the meeting
include the following: Harold
Ramsden and W. A. Collins of the
Presbyterian Church; L. J. Smith
and Morris Lichenstein of the Hil-
lel Club; J. T. Duree and Clayton

After the season they’ll expect a
bit more of the regular routines.
This favor will be greatly ap
preciated by all concerned.
There is a big question on the
top of our note book. That is how
Mr. Williamson can rate the Ag
gies in No. 2 place for this week’s
poll? With a rating of 99.7, the
cadets go to the show spot. South
ern Methodist won two good games,
one from U. C. L. A. and one from
the strong little Denton Teachers
who boast one of the fastest back-
fields in the South.
U. C. L. A. goes far down the
list because of its two losses. Both
were surrendered in the last period.
The first in the last six minutes
and the second in the last four
minutes, and both 9 to 6.
From San Antonio comes a few
red notes and also a few black
marks. Cece Hollinsworth scouting
for the U. C. L. A. Bruins not only
drew out all the plays used by the
Aggies, but also recorded about
eight records with individual char
acteristics of the various players
being noted . . . Joe Rothe follow

Shortly after the Aggie band
assembled and sent the strains of
the “Aggie War Hymn” blasting
down Houston street a large part
of the “Twenfth Man” met before
the Gunter Hotel and gave the
San Antonians a preview of how
Aggies can yell. No small num
ber of people stood awe-struck as
“Buster” Keeton, flanked by his
assistants Bill Beck and Skeen
Staley, hung over the railing on
the Gunter Hotel and led the group
in yells that seemed to rock the
buildings. For the benefit of those
who lived beyond the city limits

The President has set October
16 as the date for registration. It
will be conducted by election offic
ials or such other individuals as the
county clerk may appoint for each
election district. The county clerk
may, upon the request of a school
or college, appoint a special reg
istrar to conduct the registration
within such institution. The stu
dent may register at any conven
ient place regardless of legal res
idence or domicile. The county
clerk will mail his registration card
to the local selective service (draft)
board having jurisdiction over the
area which the student indicates as
his place of residence.
Each student (as well as other
men 21 to 36) will be assigned a
number and will be subect to call
for classification. Prior to receipt
of call he will receive a personal
data sheet, one section of which
provides for recording the indi
vidual’s education and includes a
specific question relating to at
tendance at school or college dur
ing the current academic year. If
the student requests deferment and
if his attendance during 1940 is
verified by the college, his train
ing may be deferred until July 1,
1941, or until the end of the aca
demic year. Although a literal in
terpretation of the Act,a s worded,
might exclude some students from
its deferment clause, there is no
reason to think that the Act will
be liberally interpreted through
rules and regulations now being
drawn, to carry out a policy of de
ferring those students whose maj
or occupation is the pursuit of a
program of studies leading to a
degree or certificate. Local boards
will have discretion in deferring
students in educational institutions
or in courses of study not clearly
within the Act (see par. 2 above),
and part-time students, who may or
may not be deferred because of
their course of study, or other
occupation. Authority for classi
fying any individual, subject to
the process of appeal, lies with the
local board.
Some have felt that the exemp
tion from registration of students
in the advanced ROTC course will
jeopardize colleges and univers
ities without ROTC. The follow
ing facts should be borne in mind:
(1) The War Department does not
now contemplate the establishment
of additional ROTC units. (2) In
establsihed ROTC units the num
ber of men permitted to continue in
to the advanced course is only one
in four of those who take the bas
ic course (84,000 in the basic Army
ROTC course, 19,000 in the ad
vanced). (3) The young man who
received his ROTC commission
will be subject to active duty for
such time after graduation as the
Army or Navy may then require.
(4) The War Department contem
plates setting up officer training
facilities in selected Army camps.
