Aggie Fish
Down Tarleton in
Dual Track Meet
Labus Stars
For Cadets With
Wins in 220, 440 Dash
Coach Dough Rollins will have
little to worry about in the 220
and 440 yard dashes when next
year rolls around. In Emerick La-
bus, he has a potential star who is
capable of setting the conference
afire in the future years to come.
Yesterday afternoon, he led the
Texas Aggie Fish thinly clads to a
76 to 38 win over John Tarle
ton in a dual meet held here. He
was high point man with 12%
points, winning first place in the
220 and 440 yard dash, and help
ing win the 440 yard and mile re
lay for the Aggies. King of John
Tarleton was second with 11 mark
ers, while Schwartz of the Fish
was third with 10 points.
The Fish followed their brilliant
showing in the Fort Worth Ex
position by completely routing the
junior collegians. They grabbed a
total of 11 places out of a possible
15 events. John Tarleton’s best
showing was in the 100 yard dash
when they dominated the field all
the way by grabbing the first two
places. Ross Glover and Sherrill
were the winners for Tarleton.
Due to the heavy wind prevail
ing over the field, the time in some
events was a bit slow. However,
the wind was a big asset to Wind
ham of John Tarleton in the jave
lin event as he threw for 164 feet
5 inches. Montgomery of A. & M.
was second.

the main attraction when the two
two teams meet, Bumpers and Ped

Then came the Aggies in the
second to forge ahead with four
runs while the Owls came back
in their half to tie the count and
drive Bumpers to a spectators
position with Peden taking over.
The Aggies picked up three in
the sixth and one in the seventh
to ice the game nine to five and
make it two games to none over
the Rice Owls.
The highlight of the game came
when Pugh connected for a homer
in deep center but only made a trip
around the bases. He was called out
for failing to touch first base.

For Annual Trek
AUSTIN, April 18—With an eye
to several world’s records and an
armful of first places, Clyde Little
field and eight choice trackmen
from his undefeated Longhorn
squad start their annual midwest-
ern swing this week-end at the
Kansas Relays in Lawrence.
The following week-end, April
25 and 26, the Texas squad will
race at the famed Drake Relays in
Des Moines, Iowa. Altogether, it
will be an eleven-day trip.
Texas will, enter five events in
both meets and will rank as near
favorites in at least four of them.
Giant Jack Hughes, at the very
peak of a brilliant discus career,
will be throwing to defend cham
pionships in both Relays.
Littlefield also will enter his
world’s record-holding sprint med
ley relay quartet in both meets, but
it will not be the team that set
the mark of 3:24 flat in the Texas
Relays two weeks back. On paper,
the Longhorn coach has a faster
group. The change will put big
Lonnie Hill, injured in the Texas
meet, into one of the 220 legs in
place of Billy Seay. The switch,
however, is tantamount to Hill’s
complete recovery. Red Baefield,
Mac Unstattd, and Fred Ramsdell
complete the four.
Hill, Seay, Carlton Terry, and
Fred Ramsdell will run the 440-
'yard relay at both Kansas and
Drake. Last season, with a 41.3
second race, Texas ran the fastest
time in the nation for the ’40 sea
son at Kansas. Bai'efield will
switch into Terry’s place in the 880
relay, the other places being the
same as on the quarter-mile group.
Littlefield’s three dash stars—
Hill, Terry, and Ramsdell—all will
run the 100-yard dash in both
meets. Slim Joe Sparks, the Steers’
reliable reserve man on all of the
relay teams, will complete the
group of eight that will make the

Softball at Aggieland comes and
goes, but each year it produces
at least one game that is unusual
in many respects. That game was
played last Thursday between
F Engineers and D Coast Artillery.
It was unusual in the fact that a
total of 48 runs were accounted in
6 cantos, with the Engineers com
ing out on top, 29 to 19. Hits, er
rors, walks, passed balls, wild pit
ches, and mental lapses contributed
their part in the wild spree. “Even
the New York Yankee scouts would
have been astounded,” declared
the engineers.
The Walton Hall boys wasted no
time in starting the scoring spree.
They pushed 12 runs across in the
first frame and then duplicated
their feat by scoring 9 times in
the next inning. While all this
Fernandez Seeded
Eighth But Loses
To Texas U Netter
Xavier Fernandez of the Ag
gie tennis team was seeded in
eighth place Thursday in the dis
trict N.C.A.A. tennis qualifying
rounds being held in Houston, but
was defeated by Batjer of Texas
2-6, 9-7, 6-3.
Dick Morris of Rice and Warren
Christner of Texas were seeded
in first and second places, res
pectively, with Morris receiving a
bye and Christner winning his first
match from Schulze of East Tex
as Teachers College.
Other Aggie participants were
Krezdorn who lost to Harris of
Baylor, Gwin who went down to
Wilson of Texas, Gillette who lost
to Harry of East Texas, and Eads
who fell to Wilkins of S. M. U.
In the doubles Fernandez and
Gwin teamed to defeat Krosen
and Grinin of East Texas, 6-8,
7-5, 6-1. Poole and LaBorde of
Texas defeated Eads and Gillette,
6-2, 6-1.
was going on, D Coast was just
barely in the game. At the end of
the fourth frame, the score was
29 to 6, with everyone but the
Coast boys giving up. Then they
turned on their full steam to tally
13 times in the last two innings.
Darknes, however, caught up with
them, and they had to be content
with the final account.
Another wild scoring affair was
reeled off in Class B softball when
H Infantry outlasted Hdq. Cavalry
in a 17 to 13 score. The “paddle-
feet” pounded out 9 runs across in
the first and climaxed their spree
with a 5 I’un rally in the fourth.
Hdq. Cavalry accounted for 11 of
their runs in the second and third
Swimming meets are running
smoothly and all events are going
off on scheduled time. The tank
ers are showing fine sportsman
ship and hustle, and many spirited
contests are being reeled off. In
one of the featured matches of the
day, F Field Artillery outswam
Artillery Band to come off with
a 27 to 13 victory. Jonsson and
Baird were high men for the win
ners. In other matches, E Coast
overwhelmed F Infantry, 30 to
13, E Infantry outlasted G Field
Artillery, 29 to 20, and 3rd. Hdq.
Field Artilery pounded out a 22
to 14 win over D Cavalry.
Pingpong is coming along nicely
in Class A intramurals with keen
competition being dealt out in all
matches. Scores vary all around,
but most of them end in a 3 to 2
score. In that class we find 3rd
Corps Headquarters winner over
B Engineers, D Cavalry shading E
Coast, Artillery Band coming
through with a win over Hdq. Sig
nal Corps, and B and D Coast
eging out a win over F Infantry
and F Engineers, respectively.

Although the Aggies are ex
pected to take the meet, the encoun
ter will serve as a scale for dop
ing the conference meet which will
be held in Austin, May 9 and 10.
Sophomore Felix Bucek amazed
on-lookers Monday afternoon when
in practice he hurled the discus
152 feet. Ricks cleared the bar in
the pole vault the same day at
12 feet, 8 inches.
Battling out the shot put will
be Jim Thomason, the Aggie track
captain and 1939 conference cham
pion, and Jack Wilson of Baylor,
1940 conference champ. Thomason
has showed up well in practice and
will be in shape for the meet.
