The formation that followed was the most impressive part of the entire evening. Facing the west stands, the Aggie band formed the letters U. S. and were led by Col. Richard J. Dunn in his famed ar rangement of “The Star Spangled Banner.” It was an awe-inspiring sight as the 17,000 spectators stood in salute as the national anthem was played. Immediately before leaving the field the A. & M. band moved to a position directly in front of the corps and played the “Spirit of Aggieland.” After the game, the Aggies scat tered to various parts of San An tonio for a victory celebration which lasted far into the night.

We picked up the September is sue of the Texas Ranger, student mag at T. U., the other day and sprawled on a two page layout midway ..through the book was an article .bearing the title, CALI FORNIA, HERE WE COME. At the top of the page was a picture of Pete Layden, Jack Crain, and Coach D. X. Bible, the three All-Americans! The following excerpt was taken from the article: “The Longhorns will go the sea son undefeated. They will beat the damaggies at Kyle Field and win the Southwest Conference cham pionship. Then, because it will be the only thing the Californians can do, Texas will get the Rose Bowl bid.” All of that is well and good . . . But we remember when the Rice Owls were on their way to the Rose Bowl in September, 1938 and they didn’t have to face the Aggies on Kyle Field on Thanks giving Day, either. ASAE Picnic Has Fish As Honor Guests Freshmen came into their own at the annual picnic of the Ameri can Society of Agricultural Engi neers at Hensel Field Thursday afternoon as the fish were honor- guests at the feast. The purpose of the annual pic nic is to bring the freshmen and upperclassmen into contact with each other so that the organiza tion can function as a unit as soon as possible. About 75 agricultural engineer ing majors attended the get-togeth er and played baseball and foot ball before the feast. Transporta tion was arranged by the agricul tural engineering department. A H Department Lists Stock Owned By A & M College The animal husbandry depart ment recently announced the total number of horses and mules own ed by the college in response to a request from the Horse and Mule Association of America. Of the 20 head of pure bred stock there are 15 Percheron mares, 4 Percheron stallions, and 1 Suffolk stallion. The college also owns 57 work mules, 22 American Saddle Horses, 13 head of grade horses for work stock and 24 head of vet erinary stock.

Not one fumble oc curred in the backfield, with Sib ley, Holder Mercer and Cotton Wil liams doing a great job in snap ping the ball. Their defense work was great, too, with Williams coming through with three interceptions of A. & I. aerials. One of the interceptions, however, was nullified by an Ag gie penalty. An odd part of the game came in the final period when Felix Bu- cek broke through to block Gilbert Steinke’s kick and covered it in the end zone. From all appearances it seem ed that the Aggies had a score, but Bucek had one foot out of the zone, which caused the officials to give the cadets only two points. Steinke DID NOT step out of the end zone as previously reported by a number of papers. The Aggies came out of the San Antonio fray without any serious injuries. Leo Daniels suffered a slightly bruised knee and Les Rich ardson was still seen hobbling around yesterday afternoon, but both suited up yesterday and are expected to be in top shape by Sat urday. Richardson had a hum knee last Saturday before the game, causing him to give way to Weldon Maples, who, by the way, played a grand game. “The soft tissues of the mouth require as careful watching as the teeth, to keep them in a healthy condition,” according to Dr. Geo. W. Cox, State Health Officer. “One of the more common dis eases to which these soft tissues are subject is a germ known as ‘Vincent’s infection” also called ‘trench mouth’ from the fact that it was very prevalent among sol diers in crowded camps and trenches during the World War. These two names are given to the disease when it affects the gums and supporting structures of the teeth; sometimes it affects the throat and tonsils, in which case it is called ‘Vincent’s angina.’ “One peculiarity of the germs that cause ‘trench mouth’ and Vin cent’s angina’ is that they may live and thrive in the absence of oxygen. They enter the mouth and become fixed between the teeth, under the gum margin and beneath the margins of fillings and crowns. They grow in and about decayed teeth. They are more likely to be active and cause the disease to develop in mouths that s not kept clean and not well cared for than in clean, healthy mouths. “The infection may he picked up through the use of common drink ing cups, dishes or cooking uten sils that have not been thoroughly cleaned, through drinking from in sanitary fountains and in other ways. It can be spread to others, just as colds are, through cough ing and sneezing. “The disease is highly contagious and spreads very easily from per son to person. It is characterized by bleeding and sore gums, and finally by ulcers in the soft tissues. In acute form the disease is pain ful and causes great discomfort. In extreme cases the infection may spread through the entire system with very serious results. “Of course, not all bleeding or sore gums or bad breath are due to ‘trench mouth,’ but at the first indication of such symptoms—no matter what the cause—a doctor or dentist should be consulted promptly and his advise and in struction should he followed with the utmost care. Those who de velop the disease must also take every precaution to keep from passing the infection on to others.” SOPHOMORES AND JUNIORS I need a few pairs of Fish Slacks. Must be in ^ood condition.

Quentin Rey nolds, international correspondent and news commentator, will appear on February 23, with a lecture. Aggies remember the popularity of the ballet as presented by Catherine Littlefield and her troop; so the troop of Anges DeMille will come to Town Hall on March 5. Following Agnes DeMille, on April 7, A. & M.’s own Singing Cadets will present a concert. Sometime in May, another swing session similar to the one present ed by Duke Ellington last year before, the Infantry Ball, will be given. The exact date and the name of the orchestra to be pre sented has not yet been disclosed, but Fred Smitham has assured us that it will be a “darned good one.” LITERATURE GROUP The Literature Group of the College Women’s Social Club will meet Friday, October 10, at 3 p. m., in the home of Mrs. P. J. Talley. “Tess of the D’Urber- villes,” by Hardy, will be reviewed by Mr. D. B. Gofer, and Mrs. D. H. Reid will review “Where Do We Go From Here?” by Laski.
