Rules The charity football game to be played on Kyle Field Sunday be tween Coach Virgil Jones’ Maroons and Coach Charlie DeWare’s Whites will be! the world premier of the revised football rules. Deception and speed along with the- old saying of “anything can happen” will be the general gist of the fray. Plays will be run from punt for mation, double wing and possibly the “T” formation will slip in every now and then. From a quick glance at each squad—the maroons are heavy and will tend to use power for their main offensive—the whites are a bit lighter and will use fast break- AT AMAZING LOW PRICES f- CM ii §1 ny California c Wooleias and Styles Since woolen prices will increase soon, this is an ekcellent time for you to select your suit or tux.

All men who plan to enter the National AAU tournament will file application in Temple, Texas with the “Temple Daily Tele gram” for their matches to be held there on January 30, 31, and February 1. Coach Hub McQuillen and his Aggie charges were still trying to forget the nightmare they had in Houston at the hands of the Rice Owls and Frank Carswell as they prepared for their two-game ser ies with the tree-top Arkansas Razorbacks. The Aggies could well muddle up the Conference race if they take the Razorbacks in one or two games. However, the boys from the Ozarks will be staunch favor ites to take their second series in a row. They tumbled the Texas Longhorns from the undefeated ranks last week by taking both games of a two game series. Big guns for the Arkansas attack this season have been Johnny Ad ams and Howard “Red” Hickey, a couple of lanky lads who have ac counted for over half of the Razor- back scores this season. In the Tex as game, both accounted for a total of 35 out of 44 points. The squad of 12 players and Coach McQuillen left here early Wednesday afternoon and spent the night in Dallas. They will leave there early Thursday morning and arrive in Arkansas during the afternoon with a workout sched uled after their arrival. Those making the trip included Capt. Bill Dawson, Bill Hendei’- son, Charlie Stevenson, Ray Jar- rett, Fred Nabors, Harold Duncan, Jamie Wilson, Ray Klutz, R. B. Bayer, Paul Pennington, R. C. Adams, and Jimmy Crouch.

One of the many reasons the Texas Aggies were in the top bracket of the nation for the past two years may be found in two words—“Charlie Henke.” Charlie, who is from Kerrville, began his football career in high school. At Kerrville, he won three letters in football, making all-district and be- I ing nominated for All-State in j 1936. Henke then came to A. & M. j to begin his higher education, to wit: Animal Husbandry. Charley has been a rancher all his life and likes all things concerned with cat tle. Back to his football career, Henke lettered at tackle, play ing as a reserve in 1938. He was moved over to guard last year where he was first string to win his second letter. Teaming with Robnett, he gave the Aggies the best brace of guards in the confer ence this past season. ‘*Mush- mouth”, as he is known by his team mates, is very much over worked and sorely underrated. He is the man in the center of that powerful line who piles up the of fensive blockers making it possible for Robnett, Vaughn and others to smear the opposing ball carriers for losses. Charlie is large, weigh ing 207 pounds, and topping the big hole in the forward wall. Henke was a starter in every game, all 21 of them, and strange to say, got knocked unconscious in the very last one—the only time he has ever been knocked out ^/enAe while playing for the Aggies. About his private life—Charlie is a First Lieutenant in the R.O. T.C. unit, being second in command of “M” Company Infantry. He likes the ranching business but will choose a military career if offer ed to him. According to the pres ent world affairs, Charlie will probably be with Uncle Sam. By his own admission, he likes all women and enjoys a good time. “Mushmouth” is a bit partial to brunettes though. Having the un official title of “Cassanova” of the football team, Henke really gets around—ask any of his bud dies, they’ll tell you. Charlie is typically dressed in the rig of a cowboy most of the time you see him, (Tactical offi cers please ignore) typifying his love for all connected with ranch ing. At present he is anxiously waiting to get the boots and cow boy hat promised all the football team as favors of the Cotton Bowl classic. Incidentally, he is proudly showing off his new watch —another favor the Cotton Bowl officials. Henke, whose genial smile has won him many friends, is one of the many well liked men on the cam pus. His athletic hero is Joe Boyd, All-America Aggie tackle last year, who played next to him in the line. Speaking of football hon ors, Charlie made All-Conference and honorable mention on Collier’s All-American. He does not intend to play professional football unless he gets a very lucrative offer. His attitude, typifying most all foot ball players is that he is out for an education, and not sports. Good luck, Charlie. Maroons Threat Whites With Possible Rocking T First Game Played Under Revised Rules By Dub Oxford It’s going to be brawn against speed on Kyle Field Sunday af ternoon at 2:30—Coach Virgil Jones Maroons fighting against Charley DeWare’s Whites. Having com pleted two hard scrimmages, both teams are showing up very good considering their experience. The Maroons and Whites have now been narrowed down to playing size and are hard at work studying plays in which to out wit the other. More time could be used for workouts as' the boys playing are taking time out from their studies to practice. There will be lots of slam-bang action in the game, and you might see plays that would not happen in two years of Conference play. “In fact, you might see anything,” as White Coach Charley DeWare puts it. The outstanding feature of the game will be the use of the new rules entirely. This game will be the world premier of the new rules, and the crowd will have an inside look on how Conference play will be run next year. Coach “Dough” Rollins made* the following statement, “I think the outstanding feature of the game is that it will be played un der the new rules.” To enable the fans to follow these new rules, here is the main gist of Artillery and came out on top by a narrow one point margin. Final score 2-1. •them. A man may be substituted as many times as the coaches desire to, and can talk to the players in the huddle as soon as he gets in the game. On the fourth down, if a for ward pass is thrown over the goal line and is incomplete the oppos ing team receives the ball where it was put in play. The ball may be handed forward behind the line of scrimmage. Possibly the most important rule is the one concerning unlimited substitutions. Learn To Dance!
