From there on out, the Bruin in field settled down and a pitching duel between Golden and Bump ers followed. Baylor finally cashed in on four hits and a walk for two runs in the twelfth stanza. Golden, who already collected four hits, open ed with a walk, but was picked off first by Carden. Miller and Lummus followed with singles. Then came the controversial point of the game. With two men on, and two down, Jimmy Witt hit one in front of the plate. Carden threw him out, but the umpire ruled it to be a foul. Karow then had some hot words with the “blue boys”, but it was no avail. Witt promptly singled to score Miller.

Measles Epidemic Is Annual Spring Affair But ’41 Is 338 Per Cent Greater Funeral Service— (Continued from Page 1) marked the last resting place of Skippy. Skippy was brought from the Houston dog pound by Sam Rankin last February and according to sev eral members of K company was in ill health when brought to A. & M. “Dr.” Pinky Caraway, senior vet erinary medicine student from Tay lor who was the chief physician on the case before the dog’s death last Friday afternoon said that the dog was too far gone before it was given medical attention. J. H. “Bull” Durham was chief mortician and was in charge of the funeral arrangements. Backwash— (Continued from Page 2) gies exactly what happened to his vocalist. On the other hand, she couldn't afford to fluff Carol and lose her regular job. What to do? • • • Solution The way out was a masterpiece— but not until Lois did a two-hour hide-out to avoid being near-kid napped by Carol when he passed through College Station on his way to Navasota. Lois first sang the A. & M. dance until intermission. Then, at an 80- mile-an-hour clip, she zoomed to 24-mile distant Navasota and sang that dance until its end at 2 a. m. Sunday morning! Which is good work if you can do it. Attractive and a better-than-av- erage dance band singer, Lois’ fa vorite number is “Perfidia,” she is 20 years old, and allegedly does not drink or smoke. Most comment on Bill’s band con cerned his male vocalist, Micky Dowd. Many cadets pointed out that they believed him to be the best male singer to hit the cam pus in many social seasons. The Engineers Ball was one more excellent addition to an already suc cessful social season . . . Bill, by the way, pays his instrumentalists and vocalists $10 a night with a $50 weekly base guarantee . . . His home in Evanston, Illinois, he attended Wisconsin U. two years as a chem major . . . The lad with the Dracula-like laugh was Lee Simmons . . . Bill’s outfit pre sented the third between-the-halv- es stage show this year. Popular with cadets, last year saw only one such show—Bernie Cummins’ acts. The annual spring upswing in measles prevalence is evidence from reports to the State Health De partment by more than 300 city and county health officers through out the state. The prevalence of measles is 338 per cent higher than the normal prevalence, figured on a seven- year median, according to Dr. Geo. W. Cox, State Health Officer. There were 1,416 cases reported for the eleventh week of the year and the median number of cases for the week over a seven year period was 420. Since measles is a disease which should always be given careful nursing, with isolation of the pa tient to protect others against the disease, and since it is character istic of the disease that it usually becomes more prevalent in the spring season, the State Health De partment issues this warning— guard yourself against measles, and if you contract this disease, go to bed immediately, call your phy sician, and see that cases are promptly reported to the local health officers, and that your home is properly placarded. The stage of measles preceding the eruption is frequently mistaken for a common cold, and as the dis ease is highly communicable at this stage the germs are widely spread because, as a rule, we take no common-sense precautions eith er in treating or protecting others from a common cold. Measles causes a congestion and . inflam mation of the respiratory tract, the delicate membrane that lines the eyelids and the accessory sinuses— these conditions make complications of the disease fairly common. Com plications may take the form of bronchitis, pneumonia, and acute inflammation of the middle ear. Crop Contest— (Continued from Page 1) Genetics Department, is the sup erintendent of the contest. G. W. Griffin, Federal Grain Supervisor, will be in charge of the grading of grains and hay, and the other judges are to be designated by the participating schools. T. E. Mc Afee, Instructor in the Agronomy Department, will represent Texas A. & M. as an official judge. Airport— (Continued from Page 1) gie of the class of 1910 and World War flier, in compliance with the desires of the Board of Directors. The airport has come as the result of a legislative act which has been in progress for the past several weeks and received the ap proval of the House last Thurs day morning. Immediately after the governor had signed it Dean Gibb Gilchrist gave the word for immediate construction. Construction for the project will include building two new runways of at least one mile in length which will give the college airport a first class rating with government authorities. Goobers-- (Continued from Page 1) pression. Sales had dropped badly because boys just wouldn’t pay five cents for an ordinary sack of peanuts but there was where the concessionaire foxed them. He went down to Houston and bought a supply of paper sacks of a small er size. Three of these smaller sacks would hold exactly what two of the regular ones would, but it had the attraction of seeming like more. At three sacks for a dime, they sold like hot cakes. Two boys would go together, buying three sacks for their dime; they could then eat one sack apiece and have one for defensive purposes, but it was still the same amount of peanuts. There is something strange about the peanut racket. If you buy them from Walter or Archie or whoever sells them at the time, and offer them their own peanuts, they al ways refuse. It may be from po liteness or it may be because they know what has gone into their produce. But try offering them to some of your friends in the show and see what happens. Princeton university is offering a series of five public lectures on “The Impact of Totalitarianism upon the United States.” Compulsory chapel attendance is threatened at the University of Rochester as the result of poor attendance at weekly chapel.
