F Infantry triumphed over I Field in a class B playoff match. The “paddlefeet” won the touch foot ball game by one 20 yard penetra tion. The game was one of the closest matches this season and both teams played “heads up” foot ball. Although A Infantry won 7-0 ov er 3rd Headquarters Field Art., both teams showed a great deal of work and planning in working out their plays. Another commenda ble incident of the match was the cooperation of the teams with the AGGIES Beat S. M. U.

Consolidated A & M Prepares for Bedias The Consolidated High Tigers are hard at practice getting ready for the Bedias Alligators, who they meet Friday for the south zone championship of district 26-B. If the Tigers win they will be un disputed champions and then will play Buffalo for the district flag. Should Bedias win, however, the race will end in a three way tie with the lola Bulldogs, the other team with a claim to the champion ship. In their last game the Tigexs beat Trinity High, but in doing so they lost the services of their first string guard, Aubrey Parsons. To remedy this situation Coach W. B. Liles has shifted Jim Gabbard from his tackle position to fill the vacant guard slot. Everybody else except Parsons will be ready for the game. The backfield of Cashion, Todd, Kinsey, and Vincent are in top shape, and should give the Alligators a bat tle from the first whistle. The game will be played at Tiger Field on Friday afternoon.

U. starting eleven and four of the thin line of reserves—better than 20 per cent of the Horned Frog squad—are on the injury list as Coach Dutch Meyer tries to patch up his team to meet Centenary in Shreveport, Saturday—and Texas, Rice and S. M. U. on succeeding Saturdays. John Bond, big right halfback, is the latest casualty. He broke his collar bone in three places in the Baylor fray, and is lost for the season. Jim Hampton, reserve tackle, twisted his knee in the same game and is out for a week or two. Leonard Pugh, first string guard, is in bed with an injury that the medicos have not been able to an alyze. It may have been a slight concussion. Billy Blackstone and Kyle Gil lespie, regular center and quarter, respectively, out for several weeks, are on the road to recovery. Black stone might play some against Centenary; Gillespie will not be ready before the Texas game, if then. Eugene Williford and A. C. Odell, reserve centers, are two more crips. The former has been having knee trouble all year, the later is recovering from the flu. Gus Bierman, left half, hurt his knee in the Indiana game and has been out ever since. Capt. Bill Crawford, with a shoulder injmy from the Aggie tussle, is begin ning to round into shape and should be ready to go against Texas.

While at the meeting Dr. Trotter will give a report on a co-opera tive project between the Depart ment of Agronomy of the college and the Division of Agronomy of the Experiment Station.

Matty is known for the great amount of emphasis he places upon defense play and is generally accepted as one of the best defenisve coaches of the nation. However, his team this year has been taking the of fense more than ever. Bell, a veteran coach of 21 yeaxs experience, is heading the South ern Methodist university football staff for his seventh year. Matty began his football career at Centre College back in 1916 when Centre’s “Praying Colonels” were the toast of the football world. After graduation in 1922, he went to Haskell Institute as head football coach, leaving there in 1922 to become head coach at Carroll college in Wisconsin. His Southwest Conference debut was made in 1923, when he was ap pointed head coach at Texas Chris tian university, where he stayed for six years. During this stay, the Frogs finished in second place twice, third twice, fourth once ,and seventh once. Bell came to Aggie land for a five-year stand in 1929, replacing Dana X. Bible, present head coach at Texas university. His record at A. & M. shows his teams taking third place in the conference twice, fourth twice, and seventh once. The Mustangs gained the ser vices of Bell in 1934 when he came to S. M. U. as assistant to Ray Morrison, who resigned at the end of the 1934 season to become head coach at Vanderbilt. Upon Mor rison’s resignation, Matty became the Mustang mentor, whose first year as the top Pony coach is remembered by all Southwest Con ference fans. During the 1935 sea son the Mustangs won 12 straight games and received the Southwest’s first Rose Bowl invitation. The following two years were lean for the Methodists, finishing in fifth place in 1936 and in sixth place in 1937. In 1938 his squad came back to finish in second place behind the undefeated Horned Frogs of Texas Christian. Bell’s 1939 Mustangs came through to tie with the Baylor Bears for sec ond place with the undefeated-un tied Texas Aggies taking top hon ors. The 1940 session saw Matty Bell bring his Poines the highest they have been since his first year at the reins—co-champions with Texas A. & M. S.M.U.

DANSBY, ’37 Plowing in a 1600 mile Sllteiepho^'liiifnw f il#1 ■■ To assure coast-to-coast telephone facilities adequate to meet future defense needs, the Bell System is con structing a 1600 mile, $20,000,000 cable line between Omaha and Sacramento. Several newly developed "plow trains,” working from opposite ends of the line, are burying the cable for maximum protection. They dig deep furrows, lay two cables in them and cover them with earth—all in one continuous operation. Their meeting will mark com pletion of the first all cable line across the continent. Carrier systems ’will be operated in the cables — one direction of transmission in each. This vast project is just one of thousands in which the Bell System is now engaged to provide additional communication facilities so vital to Army, Navy and defense industries. ass f)
