By file Uaikin Battalion Sports Editor “Four Horsemen’’ of Ag Coaching Staff Have Done Great Job With An Inexperienced Team Let’s give credit where credit is due. For five weeks now, the Ag gie machine has been gaining mo mentum and improving with each contest. Sure, much credit should be paid to the players—Moser, Dan iels, Spivey, Sterling, Ruby, Sib ley, Richardson, Simmons, et al. They’ve been doing a swell job, but there are four men in this school that are distinctly in the background—you know they are there but you just take it for granted. Sort of '"‘unsung heroes” you might say. We’re talking about none other than our coaching staff of Head Coach Homer Norton, Line Coach Bill James, Backfieid Coach Marty Karow, and End Coach Dough Rollins. This four some have molded another great Aggie machine—starting out this time with only green and inex perienced material. They have worked hard—as hard as any, of the players, and if you think the players got that hustle and spirit, why just drop around the practice field and watch their coaches. As for their coaching ability, let’s take Coach Norton first. He is in his seventh year here, and in that time has put out two cham pionship elevens. Bill James, un doubtedly one of the best line coaches in the country, up to date has one of the three best defen sive forward walls in the nation. The experts thought our line would be weak, but they didn’t reckon with “Uncle Bill.” Marty Karow has done an exceptional job in turn out some of the greatest crop of backs in the country, while at the same time doing a great job of scouting. Last but by no means least—Dough Rollins. One of the best end coaches in the United States, he has turned out such stars as Herbie Smiah, Bill Stages, Johnny Morrow, and the present crop of Jim Sterling, Bill Hender son, and Boots Simmons. As a scout, we doubt if there are any better than Dough. So when you’re around the gym anytime, why, drop by and give our “four horsemen” a real pat on the back. They deserve it. SPORTS SQUIBS FROM HERE AND THERE Marty Karow, basketball coach, has given this announcement . . . Any player that is eligible and wishes to play basketball come down to the gym at any time and have some equipment issued to him. Grandstand Heroes! All the admiring glances in the stands are not di rected toward the field— there’s many an eye di rected toward the smart new Griffon top coats that we’ve been selling! New are the unusual blends of brown and blue that are the season’s style hit! New is the shortness of the coat which makes last year’s styles look an tique! Drop in and take a look. It’s easy to pick a winner —and there are no losers! $19.50 to $39.50 7JLX COLLEGE WIMBERUY -STONE va/Ict ciocKieas and BRYAN Aggies Leave for Little Rock at Midnight k I V /Mi m n K i v : mi How to Win Friends in one easy lesson Treat yourself and others to wholesome, delicious Wrigley's Spearmint Gum.

The Flavor Lasts^ '' -V? ,<<'■ ;> Y- ,» Y' Team to Have Light Workout Before Saturday The Texas Aggies leave Aggie- land at midnight tonight for Lit tle Rock, Arkansas, where they meet the Arkansas Razorbacks Sat urday in their fourth “foreign” game of the year. The cadets have five wins against no defeats and will be trying for their third con ference victory. Upon their ar rival in Little Rock at noon Fri day, the Aggies will go into a final workout on the Little Rock High School field. Few Injuries Four Aggies are on the injured list: Tom Pickett is suffering from a hurt knee and cracked ribs while Alabama Smith, Les Richardson and Lincoln Roman are down with bruised knees. Pickett is not like ly to see service against Arkansas as Coach Norton wishes to allow him to fully recover before put ting him back on the firing line. Martin Ruby is still bothered with a fractured hand but the protec tion of the plaster cast will allow him to deal lots of misery to the Razorbacks. The scrimmage sessions have been featuring punt and kick-off returns. Derace Moser, Leo Dan iels, and Bob Williams have been shining with some brilliant run- backs. The cadet line has been do ing nice work in scrimmage and should be up to the usual high par it has shown so far this season. Running plays have been stressed in an effort to bring the Aggie ground game parallel to the out standing passing offensive. The Razorbacks, with their bean pole ends, will more than likely open up with a threatening pass ing attack and the Aggies have been working on a pass defense designed to stop the Arkansas aerials. With their three cracker- jack backs in the pink of condi tion, the Porker ground play is not being taken too lightly. Norton Cautions Corps Coach Homer Norton reports that the usual squad of about 35 men will make the Arkansas trip. He says that aside from the four men on the injured list the Aggie squad is in fine condition. Norton issued a warning against the corps and the team becoming too optimis tic; stating that five games, all of them against tough teams, are still to be played—ONE AT A TIME.

This game will decide between these two neck and neck teams. Another fray which should prove to he interesting is the Clemson-George Washington battle. The Clemson lads should have little trouble here, but one can never tell. Of all the games this week—big and small—this writer would like to be present to see West Texas State top Hardin Simmons. There are two real teams among the so- called “little” schools. The predictions for games of to day and Friday are listed below with the probabl® winners in Capi tals.

Rice of the Engineers led his team in the winning of the vic tory and in the words of,the ref eree, Bob Yerkes, “Of all the games I’ve refereed this year, this is the best one I have seen.” Good work, Engineers.

F Infantry took A Field for a ducking and beat them five to one. “Roland Bingville,” B Infantry, tied with F Coast in their game and D Infantry tied with E Infantry 1-1.

LA SALLE HOTEL BRYAN, TEXAS 100 Rooms - 100 Baths Fire Proof R. W. HOWELL, Mgr. Class ’97 Interest in Bowling Is Declining at A & M Bowling, heretofore one of Ag- gieland’s favorite sports, has shown a decided decline in popularity this semester. R. D. Hill, manager of the Y. M. C. A. alleys, states that the only reason he can determine for the decreased attendance is the fact that the students this year are spending more time studying. Women howlers on the local al leys haven’t slowed down, however, tut are increasing in number each week. At all hours of the day women can be seen occupying at least one of the Y alleys. The idea of intramural bowling was brought up last year, but be cause of the scarcity of alleys on the campus this idea was given up altogether. Building ten new alleys in the Assembly Hall was also discussed by the Y. M. C. A., but this idea too has been cast aside—at least temporarily. Hill relates that, strangely enough, the biggest week of bow ling on the A. & M. campus is the week of mid-term examinations in January. During this week the alleys are always full, from open ing in the morning till closing time at 10 p. m. You’ll welcome ice-cold Coca-Cola just as often and as surely as thirst comes.
