Or should I say days? It all boils down to this. Next Friday and Saturday the Aggie nine will meet the “tea sippers” on Kyle Field, and according to the dope- sters the Aggies have a margin on the T. U. squad. So get set for the “test” of the season. And not only are you going to see the best ball game of the year, but the band and yell leaders will be there and we are going to have a “wallopin’ Texas time.” So come on down after that class and get your re venge. Pushing long-legged Mac Um- stattd to a new record of 1 minute 53.8 in the 880, Ralph Henderson broke the old record in the event to come in second. Continuing fur ther in track, Bill Henderson board ed a train Friday night for Fort Worth and came back to Aggie- land with a fourth place in jave lin. Athlete of the day in the 1941 Southwest Conference track meet held in Austin was chunky Roy Bucek.

C. U. teams. Roy shouldn’t be late to any of his classes now, for he was awarded a watch for his out standing performance. Back to the baseball situation again, the Aggies won three games straight last week and that now makes a grand total of six games won. In the T. C. U. game, Bill Henderson pitched only one hit for seven innings and Charlie Stev enson finished out the rest of the fracas, doing a fine job as a relief pitcher. Jeffrey also hit his sec ond home run of the season. All of you potential golfers can well be limbering up your putters and niblicks. Staging an invitation tournament Sunday, May 25, the Bryan Country club will be host to an innumerable number of golf ers from this area. This is an ad vance notice of the tournament and there ought to be a large contin gent of Aggies on the greens to make a try for some of the prizes offered. Coach Art Adamson was quite a surprised man Friday night at the water carnival—if coaches can be surprised at anything their team does. Coach Adamson was presented a nifty brown suit which was set off by yellow pin stripes. Just any day now, you will see Art joining the ranks of the “esquires.” The presentation was made by Nickey Ponthieux, captain of the swimming and water polo team. Highlight of the Water Carnival was the outstanding performance of Leslie “Iron Lungs” McCar thy who swam three lengths of the pool and 26 feet over to break a world record for under water swimming.

UNIFORM TAILOR SHOP Mendl & Hornak North Gate Bucek Is Outstanding In SW Track Texas U Cops SW Track Meet With Rice, A&M Trailing By Jack Hollimon Texas A. & M. hustling hurdler, Roy Bucek, lifted his 195 pounds of muscle over both hurdle events at the Southwest conference meet in Austin Saturday to take first in each race and an award as the days outstand ing perform er. His efforts helped the Ag gies into third place in the meet with 31 points j^ehind Texas’ w i n - ning 64 points and Rice In stitute’s 40%. Bucek was high point man with 1 1 % points and he was the only double winner of the meet. The University of Texas, Rice, and A. & M. were the only teams entered tljat produced real results. S.M.U. followed the Aggies with 17 points; Arkansas, 11; Baylor, 7; and Texas Christian brought up the rear with 5% points. Bu cek scored more individually than the last three teams. Three records fell during the running of this climax of confer ence track. Harold Hall of Rice ran the 440-yard dash in 47.8 to wash out the old record of 48 flat held by Sanders of Rice; Texas’ 440-yard relay team of Seay, Sparks, Ramsdell, and Hill sprint ed the oval in 41.4 to tie the old record; lanky Henry Coffman of Rice high-jumped 6 feet 7% inch es to break the old mark of Tex as’ Jack Vickery at 6 feet 6 inch es; and Mac Umstattd of the Steers set a new half-mile stan dard with a brilliant 1:53.8 that saw Aggie Ralph Henderson fol low him around under the old re cord of 1:54.2 held by Calvin Bell of the Owls. Carlton Terry, the Texas sprint er who ran the 9.2 hundred in College Station last week during the “Little Conference” meet, romped the distance in 9.6 to take first place in Austin, but he pulled a muscle and was withdrawn from other competition. Joe Blagg, Owl 220 star, ran his heart out but Fred Ramsdell put on the heat with a fast 21.3 to shade Blagg in the last five yards. This was one of the most thrilling races of the day. After Texas dropped the baton in the mile relay event, Rice cross ed the tape ahead of A. & M. in second place. The Steers recovered in time to finish in third spot a- head of Arkansas. Umstattd of Texas helped put the Longhorns back in the running when he flash ed around with the picked-up ba ton and set the stage for Rams dell to make up lost distance.

Only swimming, tennis, pingpong, and softball remain on their list, with the playoffs for each due to start in the very near future. There are still a few soft- ball games that have to be made up before the playoffs begin, -but all indications point to a quick mop-up.

One of the feature tilts of the day was played between C and D Ca- Aggie Polo Team Downs Shreveport By 8 to 7 Score Shreveport invaded Jackson Field Sunday afternoon and a large Mother’s Day crowd saw the Tex as Aggie polo team turn them back 8 to 7. At half time, everything was even at two goals each, but the last periods turned into a bar rage of goals and A. & M., never headed, raced over the eighth score in the closing minutes. The tilt was nip and tuck all the way, and Bill Braid, who play ed the entire game, led his team mates in scoring with four goals. He was tied with Dr. Young of Shreveport for high point honors, and his riding was a display of reckless abandon and ability in the saddle. H. R. Scivally of the Shreveport club scored three goals and Bill Hart chalked up two for the cadets. Rice and MacDonald of A. & M. scored one goal each. Turning in stellar relief work, Jack Buie, Norrin McGowan, and Clyde Raley helped hold the op ponents in check while Braid play ed the wood through the flags from his scoring position. The en tire club made a great showing and their teamwork kept Shreve port under throughout the contest. A. & M. mounts were used by both teams with the exception of ponies used by O’Quin and Young of Shreveport. Their horses were brought along with the club. Sam Brown was the fourth Shreveport player. Officiating at the game was Jack Hays of the University of Cali fornia. Aggie Fish Win First Game of Year, 7 to 2 Coach Harry Faulkner’s Aggie Freshmen nine hit the win col umn for the first time this year as they downed Pete Dowling’s classy Reagan High School dia- mondeers to the tune of 7 to 2 here Saturday afternoon. The Bulldogs, who are the class iest team in their league, suffer ed their first loss of the year when Shuffered, Fish hurler, held them to five scattered hits. They tallied their runs in the seventh and eighth innings. Opening with two runs in the opening inning, the cadets added a run in the second, two in the fifth and one each in the sixth and seventh frames. Don Mc- Cance led the Fish attack with two blows, while the five Reagan hits were divided equally among the Bulldog hitters. valry, whose rivalry before the game knew no bounds. So they set tled it with a hard fought game of baseball with the C Troopers get ting the best of the ordeal. A six- run rally in the second frame was enough to give them an 8 to 6 win. They led 7 to 0 until the fourth but Dixon, C Cavalry pitch er, blew up and let four runs filter in. Ellis’ triple with the sacks jammed was the big blow of the inning. —o— Another rivalry came to an ab rupt halt when E Field Artillery shaded their “brothers” from A Field Artillery to the tune of 2 to 0. Ivey, E Field chunker, hurled one-hit ball to completely subdue his rivals. —o— H Infantry pushed over 7 tal lies in the final inning and an other one in the extra frame to come through with a 15 to 14 vic tory over the 4th Corps Hdq. in a wild hitting game. Battling for all they were worth, the “paddle- feet” finally overcame a 7 run lead, and drove on to victory in the next canto. —o— D Engineers advanced into the semifinals in the volleyball play offs by eliminating the strong but outclassed E Field Artillery, 2 to 0. It was a hard fought battle in the first game, with the Engineers barely surviving a 15 to 11 vic tory. However, the tireless En gineers proved their worth by stomping the Artillerymen for a 15 to 2 victory. Underwater Swim Record Broken By Leslie McCarthy Setting a new world record, Les lie McCarthy swam 326 feet un der water as a part of the fifth annual Water Carnival which was held last week. McCarthy who is a junior, makes a specialty of submerged swmming and will be a welcome addition to coach Adam son’s tankers next year. The length of McCarthy’s swim was measured immediately after his feat was performed comply ing with the A.A.U. rules, and Coach Adamson is now at work at tempting to get the record recog nized. McCarthy broke the old record by six feet. Other features of the carnival were the water polo games play ed by the members of the old and new area Friday night. The re sults of this match ended with the old area taking a win with a score of 1 to 0. Saturday night the seniors and ex-Aggies played the undergraduates and the sen iors won 2 to 0. Aggies Meet Steers Here Friday in Crucial Series Cadets Win From S.M.U. and T.C.U Following their successful in vasion of North Texas, the Texas Aggie nine returned with vim and vigor as they prepared to give the league leading Texas Long horns a rousing welcome when the two teams battle for the Southwest Conference baseball crown here next Friday and Saturday. The Karowmen have five days in which to get ready for the Tex as juggernaut, with the game scheduled at Austin yesterday be ing reset to May 19. Six consecutive victories have found their place under the cadet belt, with three of these coming on the road. They opened the first of a two game series last Thurs day with an 8 to 6 win over the T.C.U. Frogs. Charlie Stevenson’s relief twirling proved to be just what the doctor ordered, while Hub Moon’s pinch single in the eighth frame put the game on ice for the erstwhile cadets. Bill Henderson’s hurling was. the bright spot in the 13 to 1 victory over the Frogs the follow ing day. Bill allowed only one blow for seven innings to gain his second victory of the season. He gave way to Roy Peden after tiring in the seventh frame. Mar lin Jeffrey’s lusty circuit hit was the hardest blow of the game. Following their series with the Horned Frogs, the Aggies swung around to Dallas where they took on the dangerous S.M.U. Mus tangs. For four frames Lefty Bumpers and Brooks Atchison had a fiery duel in which neither side tapped a ball out of the infield. In the fifth, Bumpers’ single start ed off a rally that produced the Aggies four tallies. They scored one more in the seventh, and iced the game with a five run rally in the ninth canto. The final score was 10 to 1. Meanwhile, the Texas Long horns were matching the Aggies run by run and hit by hit as they tamed the Baylor Bears in a two game series at Austin last week end. Udell Moore hurled the first -f-fray with the efficiency of his father, Wiley Moore, and a 9 to 4 victory resulted. The second game, however, wasn’t exactly the same story. The Bears grabbed a 6 to 1 lead before the Steers could even get a loud foul. Lefty Gold en was pitching superb ball, but his support waned into thin air, and the Steers, aided by a two x'un outburst in the seventh frame, went on to win, 7 to 6. Beefus Bryan’s relief hurling, after Melvin Deutsch had been sent to the showers, was the bright spot in the Longhorn’s performance. The Steers take on the revamped Rice Owls today at Austin in an important clash. ^ifji \ The Thermometer is Shooting Up!
