Rain and more rain caused the
Aggie-Texas game to be moved
from yesterday to today.
It will be the final test for the
Steers with their chances of fin
ishing on top the conference ladder
depending on their showing.

The Aggies Still In The Game?”
Today Marty Karow’s gang will
be out to cast upon the “Forty
Acres” team the same curse that
S.M.XL did in their first meeting.

of the day for headings. Some one
failed to read the name of the
“league-leading Texas Longhorns.”

Watkins would enter the high jump

While Coach Marty Karow’s Ag

battle with the Texas Longhorns
at Austin the cadet freshman team
will also be busy in a tilt with the
Texas Yearlings. They will attempt
to protect the glory of the Aggies
at Kyle Field, while the varsity
will put out everything they have
in attempting to dethrone the
According to the latest reports
from the weatherman, the game

The past week’s rain has played
havoc with the freshmen, causing
the postponement of three tilts—
one with the Allen Academy Ram

Nothing is known about the
team, except that there are many
eager diamondeers who hope to
show their stuff to Coach Harry
Faulkner. They have been work

part of March, and are ready for
some competition.
This fracas with the Shorthorns
will be one that the fish will at

Indoor Intramural Games Take Lead as
Rain Causes Cancellation of 150 Games
After another week of rain and
cold weather, Spring seems to have
sprung once more—thanks to the
Infantry Regimental Ball. Approx
imately 150 games
have been rained
out. Most of these
were softball and
all will be resched
uled as time and
weather permit.
Too many for

coming up in ping

another win in the pool. Head

Del Rio Joe
Bought by Schreiner
An interesting fact to horse
breeders is the recent purchase of
Del Rio Joe, champion Quarter
horse, by Charles Schreiner II of
Kerrville and Dallas, from Robert
M. Denhardt, secretary of the
American Quarter horse associa
tion and Instructor in Agricultural
Economics at Texas. A. & M. The
price was said to be a “fair fig
Del Rio Joe was grand cham
pion at the Stamford Quarter
horse show last July 4. That he is
a true breeder may be seen by the
fact that one of his colts placed
third in his class at the Fort
Worth Fat stock show last month.
Also, Joe is a good roping horse.
He was used by “champion cow
boy” Fred Dalby in the Saddle and
Sirloin rodeo last fall.

Campus Parking
Lot Reworked
The various parking lots located
on the campus have recently been
reworked in an effort to make them
mare attractive. The work has been
carried on by student labor under
supervision of the landscape art
A screening effect is given to
the lots by placing a short row of
shrubs immediately outside the
taller ones thus eliminating the
plain appearance of the lots. All
the plants which have been used
have been propagated in the col
lege greenhouse at a saving of sev
eral hundred dollars, according to
N. M. McGinnis, professor of land
scape art. The only expenses con
nected with this work has been
the cost of setting out the shrubs
which is done by student labor.
All the parking lots on the campus
have been screened except the one
next to the agricultural building
and it will be eliminated in the
near future.

* Tilt to Pit
League Leading
Hurlers Together
By Mike Haikin
Coach Marty Karow and his de
termined Texas Aggie nine left the
campus Friday afternoon as they
trod on to Austin and Carter Field
for a one game stand against the
powerful Texas Longhorns this
afternoon. The game was original
ly set for Friday, but due to the
wet grounds, the officials of both
schools decided to advance the date
to Saturday.
This game is important in more
than one way. In the first place
the Southwest Conference lead is
in the balance on the outcome of
the fray. Then, too, the game will
pit two of the leading hurlers in
the league. Lefty Bumpers and
Melvin Deutsch have been fighting
it out for top honors since last
year, and both are eager and look
ing for a victory. Bumpers has
fared better in the won and lost
column this year, but Deutsch has
been more consistent. Both have
been defeated once—Bumpers by
Rice, and Deutsch by S. M. U.
Lefty showed more brilliance in
his victory column by pitching 23
consecutive scoreless frames for
two shutouts, while Mel was
pounded good and hard in his vic
tory over Rice and T. C. He
also holds a win over the Mus
Captain Marion Pugh and Mar-
land Jeffrey are the hard-hitters
on the team and will attempt to
lead the cadet offense, Jeffrey,
who partols the right garden, is
the leading Aggie hitter up to
date. Pugh, too, has a respectable
average, and is leading the cadet
team in circuit blows. Bill Buc-
