ON KYLE FIELD -With Hub Johnson. SHIFT IN COACHING STAFF TO COVER BASKETBALL TEAM No longer will it be just the smell of ammonia and sweaty tape that surrounds Lil Dimmett, for commencing next September he will take over the duties of head mentor of the Aggie baseball squad. Among his past positions are secretary of the Beaumont Ex porters, coach at Beaumont High School, Mayor of Georgetown, rancher, coach at Lamar Junior College, and scout for the Detroit Tigers. Marty Karow will retain his duty as backfield coach of the football team and will take over that of coaching the basketball squad.

Allen, Owner COLLEGE and BRYAN Changes Made in Coaching Staff as Norton Adjusts for McQuillan Vacancy Karow Will Assume Basketball Duties and Dimmitt Gets Baseball Job New coaches will be in charge of varsity baseball and basketball at Texas A. & M. College after Sept. 1, according to an announce ment made here Wednesday by Homer Norton, head coach and di rector of athletics. Marty Karow will move from head baseball coach to head bas ketball coach and Lil Dimmitt, present trainer, will take up the duties of head baseball coach. Manning Smith and Charlie De- Ware will become co-coaches of freshman football, basketball and baseball. At present Smith is coach of freshman basketball, varsity tennis and backfield demonstrator on the varsity football team. De- Ware has been assistant freshman football coach for the past three years and assistant varsity base ball coach for two years. Both Karow and Dimmitt have wide experience in the sports which they will take over next year. Ka row won cage letters at Ohio State and later was varsity basketball coach at the University of Texas. Dimmitt has over twenty years connection with baseball and spon sored the teams at Southwestern University, Georgetown, in the early twenties. He later was secre tary of the Beaumont baseball club and scout for the Detroit Tigers. He also coached baseball at Beaumont high and Lamar Jun ior College before coming to Texas A. & M. in 1935. He coached freshman baseball for two years but turned over that job to Smith and DeWare in 1938 when his other duties became too heavy. When he first came to Aggie- land it was the intention to make him varsity baseball coach but other duties called and he never took over the varsity teams. He is better known for his football coaching but it is baseball that is his first love of all the sports. The shift was made necessary by the resignation of H. R. (Hub) McQuillan, head basketball and freshman football coach, who re signed to become head basketball coach at Texas Christian Universi ty, Fort Worth. Karow is varsity backfield coach and Dimmitt trainer for all sports.

AGGIES RUN IN WACO AGAINST CONFERENCE MEN With their last team showing being the turning back of the Rice thinly clads, the Aggie track team runs this week-end in a quad rangle meet with the Baylor Bears, Southern Methodist Ponies and the Texas Christian Horned Frogs. The cadets should win the meet with second and third places count ing heavily. S.M.U. and Baylor should follow in close order. In Houston tomorrow and Satur day the Aggies will close their sea son’s play with the Rice Owls. The Houston team will be out for re venge due to the close out handed them by Lefty Bumpers here earl ier this month. At the same time in Austin the Ponies and Longhorns will tangle again for their final of the three game schedule.

April 9 found them matching sticks with the Oklahoma Military Academy where the Ag gies triumphed by a score of 5 to 4. Leaving Claremore for a game in Norman the next day, the A. & M. men waded through the O.U. Sooners by another close 5 to 4 count. Back to Claremore and O.M.A. opposing them, the Aggie quartet surged to a lop-sided vic tory 13 to 3 Saturday morning, the cadets with three wins under their belts clashed with Oklahoma University again and they lost a hotly contested tilt in the last few minutes 8 goals to 7. Their final game was played in the Bayou state and despite a long trip and much competition, the Shreveport Polo Club stopped A. & M. 9 to 5. Scoring for A. & M. in the first game with O.M.A. were Maloney with two, Braid two, and McGow an one. The second game played with O.U. saw Maloney and Braid put another two apiece across and McDonald made the other mark er. Again against O.M.A. in Clare more Friday, the Aggies, led by Bill Braid with 5 goals and Carl Maloney with 3 goals, smashed to that 13 to 3 win. McDonald scor ed twice and McGowan, Raley, and Hart hit pay dirt one goal each. Maloney stuck to his offensive post in the final O. U. game Sat urday morning with four goals to his credit. His total would have been 5 but for the mistake of a misinstructed goal flagger. Braid, Hart, and McDonald took one each for the Aggies, but O. U. slip ped past for a close victory in the last minutes of the game. The Aggies’ game with Shreveport was played without handicap and A. & M. made an excellent showing against this top-flight civilian team. This set of games played away from the home field marked the big trip of 1941 for the polo team BATTALIONA— APRIL 17 PAGES Intramurals Season’s Play in Several Sports on Last Legs as Spring Holidays Roll Past By Bob Myers With the spring holidays be hind us, many of the intramurals sports are on the last leg of their appearance in this year’s activi ties. In the class A division speed- ball, volleyball, and horseshoes are coming into the straightway for a driving finish. Class B finish ers are horseshoes, water polo and _ handball. Into the lime light of the up perclassmen field of sports comes swimming, ping pong, and golf to fill out the con tinuous schedule. Only newcomer to the freshman ICrm card is golf. teams cashed in on consistant ball but the E Company boys put on the steam in the sixth and seventh to bring in the winning runs. Ambitious youngsters can break out their equipment and start working the kinks out of their legs for the coming track meet. Tentative date for the meet is May 4th. 3rd Coi’ps Headquarters blanked B Coast Artillery in their soft- ball game before the holidays. The 5-0 score came about after a heated pitching duel between Blackaller, 3CHQ, and Newman, B CAC. Both pitchers claimed a few three-up and three-down in nings but the “third column” broke through in the third and came in with three runs. Two more in the fourth and fifth put the game on ice.

Both Aggie Nine Hits Snag at Randolph Field Flyers Walk Off with Both Games in Weekend’s Two-Game Series 6-2, 7-1 Coach Marty Karow’s Texas Ag gie nine enjoyed their stay in San Antonio this past weekend, but it was only in the way of social affairs as the cadets went down before the onslaught of the Ran dolph Field Flyers in a two game series. Lefty Bumpers started on the hill for the cadets in the first game but was treated roughly by the homelings. Randolph Field, aided by some hefty pitching by A1 Crostwaite, pounded Bumpers into oblivion and grabbed a 6 to 2 victory. They accounted for 10 hits, and a 4-run rally in the seventh was enough to put the game on ice. The second tilt proved to be the same old story. Randolph Field, aided by some Aggie errors and wildness on the part of the cadet hurlers, slapped out a 7 to 1 vic tory. John Seoggin, regular Ag gie outfielder, started on the mound in an experiment by Coach Karow, and but for some wildness pitched creditable ball. He walk ed five and struck out two men. Bill Henderson followed and held the Flyers in check the rest of the way. Bright ray in the Aggie down falls was Jack Lindsey, hustling Second sacker. Btesides collect ing four hits out of eight times and their sportsmanship, ability, I at the plate, he fielded with the and spirit were an important high- polish of a veteran. He also figured light throughout the journey. | in three double plays. Teamplay was stressed and it in duced much improvement in the club. There were no particular stars, but a gallant and hustling showing was made by all. These included Norris McGowan at num ber one, Carl Maloney at number two, Bill Braid in number three spot, and Walt Hart and Sid Mc Donald in number four position. Clyde Raley, team business man ager and substitute, went along for forward position relief. Also ac companying the team was Lieut. W. G. North, Cavalry, assistant coach, who was in charge. Their coach, Major E. F. Stevens, was unable to make the entire trip but he met them in Louisiana. E Infantry played a good steady- the ranks of high scorers and sat on the other side of the fence on the small end of a 18-1 score when F Infantry took their well- organized ball club onto the field and knocked the ball all over San Antonio. Team Packs Belongings To Battle Rice in Houston 5th Corps Headquarters advan ced to the semifinals in speedball by running up a 11-3 score against H Coast Artillery in a quarter-fin als game. L Infantry brought a four man horseshoe team down to win a 2-1 game from 3rd Corps Headquarters in spite of the one spotted match. Griffin, Hickman, Mills, and Welch pitched for L Company.

Tomorrow’s Game Indicates Cadets’ Chances for Flag After being greeted with an un eventful weekend in San Antonio, the Texas Aggie nine take their belongings to Houston with re newed hope to battle the featherd flock of Rice Institute tomorrow and Saturday in a two game series. Title aspirations became evident in the cadets’ camp when the S. M. U. Mustangs throttled the hereto fore undefeated Texas Longhorns in a major upset two weeks ago. The Ponies’ victory made the con ference a scrambled affair, with the Steers, Aggies, and S. M. U. all fighting it out for the top pos ition. Texas is leading the pack with four victories and one defeat. S. M. U. is next with five wins and two setbacks, while the Aggies totter in third place with' a two and one record. Both Aggie victories have been due to the splendid twirling of Lefty Bumpers, who has pitched a couple of two-hitters. He has also accounted for 23 consecutive score less frames in conference play.
