Rice has been playing “every other week” ball, being hot one week and cold the next. Two weeks ago a field goal saved them from disgrace by A. & I. and back they came last Saturday to down a Ra- zorback club performing before a homecoming crowd. The question still remains — what’s in store for this Saturday? Jess Neeley has fired up his gang, touching the first spark to the coals early in September be fore practice opened. Fred Hartman, Tuffy Whitlow, T. A. Weems and Bob Brumley are hard set and determined to spill Norton’s crew, even here on Kyle Field. This is the last game on Kyle Field for the year. Two years ago in a similar game, ,the Aggies set the Owls back 27 to 0. Saturady, well, you call it. The cross country team was in Austin yesterday afternoon running their final duo-meet before the conference run there next Wednes day. It stacks up with Texas on the top, the Aggies running a second, and the Southern Methodist Mus tangs in third place. After months of heavy pounding by the varsity, Coach Hub McQuil- YOIPRE RIGHT!

The Fish boast an 18 to 0 win over Allen Academy from a game played on a rain soaked field, while the Slimes have behind them a win from Lamar Junior College and a hard fought loss to the Tex as Yearlings. Last year the two teams slid all over the Rice Field in Houston the night preceding the Varsity fray and the Slimes proved them selves to be the bettter squad. Lincoln Roman and Andy And ricks will lead the Fish attack against the downy crew with the line bolstered by Leonard Dickey at end and Dick DeArment at guard. Roman was acclaimed all district back last year while play ing for Reagan High in Houston. Dickey and Andricks are junior col lege transfers from Kilgore Jun ior College. DeArment is a con verted back, moved to the guard spot because of his ability on de fensive plays. Wally Driscoll and Buster Roach are slated to be the fast moving backs for the Slimes while the combination of Elliss Hollis to Har old Stockbridge via the air route might prove a menace to the Ag gie freshmen. Stockbridge received all-state honors in ’39 playing for Steph en F. Austin at Houston. Buddy Moore and Gayle Mc Laughlin will bolster the Rice de fense throughout the afternoon. This will be the freshmen’s last game at home, the next being play ed in Austin against the Texas Yearling. Consolidated Blanks lola 20-0 To Cop South Title The A. & M. Consolidated Tigers met the lola Bulldogs Tuesday night Nov. 12 in a rousing game which gave the Tigers the South title, and the right to meet Mar quez Yellow Jackets, North Zone Winner, for the District 26-B Championship. Although the score was 20 to 0 the Tigers could not get started. The Tigers fumbled on the first play of the first quarter and it put them in the hole all during the first period. The boys from College Station were quite butter-fingered ed. They fumbled seven times, and lola recovered five of them. The only threat lola made to score was on recovering fumble? and even then there was no real menace. lola played good defens ive ball, but was not strong enough to even threaten the all-powerful Tigers. In the game Nov. 22, with Mar quez for the District Champion ship, the Tigers are up against their hardest opponent. Marquez has lost one game, and the Tigers have lost one game, namely, to Crockett. The Tigers are the fav orites, but there is a possible chance for an upset. Ian, Charlie DeWare and Dr. Jones will send their fish gridders to do battle with the Rice Slimes tomor row on Kyle Field. Andy Andricks will offer his best for the fish while Leonard Dickey at end should prove his worth on the line. An added attraction might come about as Harold Stockbridge, all- state end from Houston, meets Lin coln Roman of the fish, who played against him in high school and re ceived all-conference honors. The quarter-back club will meet tonight in Guion Hall. The movies of the S.M.U.-Aggie game will be shown, starting around 8:15 p.m., just after the Singing Cadet prac tice. Saturday the Rice students will have their section bordering that of the Aggies on the 60 yard line. It belongs to them and are well entitled to it. Complaints have come in as to the overflow of the cadets into this section. It is requested that we please refrain. BATTALiONA- THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 14 PAGE 3 Intramurals A Field Artillery Reports For Basketball Just Four Months Early By Bob Myers A Field Artillery got off a good one Tuesday afternoon when they hustled their Class A Volleyball team together and took off for the courts. Upon arrival, they dis covered, much to their surprise, that they were only about four months too early and that the game scheduled was for the “fish” of Battery A. After faces resumed their normal hue, action was taken to get the fresh men down for the game. The Class B team arrived in time to play the game but went down under the guns of D Caval ry. The first intramural champion ship of the year went to the fresh men of E Field Artillery when they defeated I Field Artillery in the final playoff of touch foot ball by a score of 7-0. F Battery is the present holder of the Class B flag and it looks like they are going after a repeat. FORFEIT DOGHOUSE 3rd Headquarters Field Artillery F Coast Artillery C Infantry 2nd Headquarters Field Artillery A Signal Corps Keep your eye on G Infantry to make a good showing in the ten nis competition. They have some mighty good players and eased ov er H Field Artillery 2-0. Rickard and Smith won one match while Gafford andMcGuire took care of the other. The third match be tween Hill and Cafrol of the In fantry and Westbrook and Tyler of the Artillery was a dead heat when the playing stopped. I Field Artillery barely took one away from D Engineers on the basketball court by a score of 12-11. The game was even up all the way with Hall and Sims spark ing the winners with high point av erages of four each. Fifth Corps Headquarters, one of the strongest intramural outfits on the campus, dropped A Coast Artillery in a game of football that ended with a score that looked like one of the Varsities. Final count—26-0. Another team that would stand a pretty good chance against Rice this week-end came from the First Corps Headquarters Hall. They took their game from K Infantry 19-0. Another 3-0 game went to A Chemical Warfare when they down ed D Cavalry. Carson, Terrel, Swan, Overbeck, Pyeutt, and Warnke car ried the asphyxiators. In a basketball game that was won during the last half of play, A Coast Artillery rang up 29 points to 1st Headquarters Field Artillery’s eleven. Farrow was the man that should have been watch ed and came out top man with nine counts. Ball Hustler Wallace Regan led D Field Artillery in their 26-15 victory over A Signal Corps by racking up 14 points on his own hook. The/game was even up at the half but the artillery got hot in the second period to put the game on ice. L Infantry dropped a game to E Engineers despite Kerby’s ten points when Smith got hot for the “slip stickers” and accounted for nine points of the 25 points that towered over the Infantry’s 18. A&M Picked Over Rice With Margin to Spare By Paul B. Williamson There are several BIG games this week, but what we pick as the BIGGEST is Georgetown vs. Boston College. Here are two upstarts who have never been mentioned in connec tion with “ivy” or “big ten” leaders. But they’ve surely gone to town this year. On the strength of very high Ratings, we’ll pick Georgetown over Boston College and figure that a “bowl” contender may be decided in this match. According to tradition, Michigan should win in a very close game over Northwestern in a leading game. Down in the boundary between the Missouri Valley and the South west, and probably against most pickers, we’re going to take Mis souri against Oklahoma. On the West Coast, those sur prising Indians of Stanford will take powerful Oregon State accord ing to the figures in our book. Stanford is undefeated and untied. Oregon State has lost only to Washington, 19-0. If Stanford gets by this one, it looks like the Rose Bowl for them. In major circles we take Auburn over L.S.U. And, oh, how the times have changed—Tulsa over Baylor. California over Oregon is the sys tem’s choice in a very close game. Rather close, will be Navy over Columbia.

THE EXCHANGE STORE Norton Predicts Rice Game Will be Tough Fray For the Aggies Head Coach Homer Norton;" of the Texas Aggies, has the jitters again and it is all over the fact that his Texas Aggies will have to go up against another tough opponent when they play the Rice Owls, undefeated in conference play, here on Kyle Field next Sat urday, Nov. 16, at 2:30 o’clock. “It seems like we never can get a chance to ease up a bit”, the Ag gie mentor said after he heard the Rice-Arkansas score. “Look at those game statistics figures”, he exclaimed. “We thought that Ar kansas had a fine team when they outgained us two weeks ago but along comes Rice and outgains them That makes it look mighty tough for us, and I’m not just moaning either”. The Aggie coach then went on to point out that every team the Aggies have played this season has been pointed for them. “That’s to be expected”, he said, "but added, “Wouldn’t you think that some of them would decide to worry about their traditional game instead of laying for their game with us ? They have the best pass defense in the Conference, they have a fine running attack, in fact so good, they don’t have to use passes; and on top of that have the best kicker in the Confer ence in T. A. Weems. That com bination is enough to cause me worries without them intending to play their game of the year next Saturday”, he said. While he was being interviewed he also made it clear that the coaches, the players and no one connected with, athletics at Tex as A. M. is talking br even think ing about any post season ball games. “All this talk you see in the papers is just someone's imagina tion and we are continuing to think about and play but one game a week.
