Picking Aggies, Steers, and Frogs to Win Today; Also taking Rice Owls Over Arkansas The Southwest Conference really gets into the swing of things with three more league games rolling out of the well-known barrel. On Kyle Field, Homer Norton’s Texas Aggies face their stiffest competition to date when they take on Matty Bell’s rampaging Mustangs. Out in Waco, the Baylor Bears play host to Coach Dana X. Bible’s polish ed Texas Longhorns. In Houston, the Rice Owls clash with the Arkansas Razorbacks in a “do-or-die” battle, while in Cowtown, T.C.U. finds a breather in the Centenary Gents. We managed to survive last weeks’ blast as far prognostica tions were concerned. You roll ’em out to us and we’ll attempt to picit ’em. A. & M.-S.M.U. ... one of the top attractions of the nation, this one promises to be a lulu. The Ag gies were kinda off against Arkansas last week, and should come back roaring today. With Red Maley not in there throwing for the Mustangs the situation is in the Cadets’ hands. The cards say Aggies by a 14-0 score. RICE-ARKANSAS . . . Since the Razorbacks have been on the up grade, many experts seem to think that this will be the Porkers’ day. However, the Owls should be on the upgrade, today themselves after slipping far out of the limelight. The Razorbacks have a good pass ing attack, but here’s giving Jess Neely’s running game an edge for a change. This one should be a scoring game with the Owls on the long end of a 20-14 count. TEXAS-BAYLOR . . . Without blinking an eyelash, it’s the Long horns all the way by a 27-0 score. T. C. U. - CENTENARY . . . Rice beat the Gents 54-0 last week, and there is no reason why the Frogs shouldn’t duplicate the feat. This will be a chance for Dutch Meyer to do a lot of experimenting before the Texas game' next week. This should go to T. C. U. by a score of 34-0. In other games we pick Navy to upset Notre Dame, Fordham over Pittsburg (this may be close), Army over Harvard by 6, Minne sota over Nebraska by three touchdowns, Stanford over South ern California, but not a runaway, North Carolina over Richmond, Tu- lane over Alabama (but watch out), Dartmouth over Princeton by 7, Ohio State over Wisconsin, Mississippi State over Auburn by 13, and Oregon State by 7 over U. C. L. A. Sports Squibs From Here and There; Review Of Thrilling Games in Aggie-Mustang Series Thrilling moments of play between S. M. U. and the Aggies since 1926 ... in that year Gerald Mann, pres ent attorney general, passed for a score and kicked a field goal to give the Mustangs a thrilling 9-7 win . . . the following year, with the Mustangs a heavy favorite, Joel Hunt, Aggie quarterback, ran wild to lead the Ags to a 39-13 victory . . . In 1928, again an un derdog Aggie team rose up to hold S. M. U. to a 19-19 tie . . . then some ardent fans remember the years, ’33, ’34, and ’35 when a lit tle fellow named Robert Wilson proved to be a deep thorn in the Cadets’ side ... it was just the opposite the following three years as an Aggie named Dick Todd ran wild ... In 1937 he made a 75 yard run for a score to lead the Aggies to a 14-0 win ... in 1938 he made a 57 yard run to put the Cadets to a temporary 7-0 lead, but a guy named Joe—Joe Pasqua— disproved everything with a field goal to win the game for the Pon ies, 10-7 . . . and how can anybody forget that thriller of 1939 when the AgS defeated the Mustangs 6-2 with the outcome being in doubt till the very last second . . . And what about last year’s battle when the Aggies had to rally in the last half to win 19-7 with mighty John Kimbrough and Waltzin’ Willie Co- natser supplying the needed punch . . . All of them have been thrill ers, and today’s battle will be no exception . . . An underdog Aggie team rose up more than once to shackle the Mustangs, and, who knows, maybe the Ponies can re turn the favor today .... Hm! Could be?

Williamson The most thrilling game in the Southwest today will be witness ed by the spectators of the Texas Aggies-Southern Methodist Mus tangs clash. This game will be the toughest struggle yet this season for the undefeated-untied Aggies. We will ride with the fighting cadets for a close one. The Texas Longhorns should have little trouble taking the Bay lor Bears into camp. The System takes the Steers to overwhelm Bay lor. The top game of the country will be found when two unbeaten but once-tied teams meet—Navy vs. Notre Dame. We say the Mid dies from Annapolis will be the vic tors. We like Arkansas over Rice also. The Owls should go down before the Razorbacks in a hard-fought game. This game isn’t figured in the odds-on books. Below are the Williamson pre dictions for Saturday, November 8, with the probable winners list ed in capitals.

Winner over the Allen Academy Ramblers, 40-0, in their opener, they will be out to protect their un defeated record, but daily scrim mage against the Aggie varsity and resultant injuries has cut deep ly into the bunch which won that game. iFullback Otto Payne, ex-Amanl- lo all-stater, is out of action wih a broken leg; Tackle Jim Wilson has a badly bruised knee; and End Nute Trotter, Borger, and Charlie Nanichia, Houston back, are hob bling about on sprained ankles, to list some of the more important player injuries. However, with a squad of between 75 and 80 from which to choose, Co-Coaches Char lie DeWare' and Manning Smith will pick a squad of approximate ly 50 Tuesday morning to make the Houston trip. To fill the gap left by Otto Payne, the coaches may shift Ed Dusek over from his halfback post, or may drop Bill Thomas, Sweet water, at the fullback slot. At any rate, Thomas will be among the starters somewhere. Probable starting lineup will in clude: Ends—Tom Goers, San Mar cos, and Floyd Hand, Pasadena, if Trotter is not ready; Tackles—Ben Stout, Dallas, and Harold Atta- way, Temple, if Wilson does not heal up; Guards—Johnnie Davis, Vernon, and Jim Cody, Dallas; Cen ter—Long John Knight, Dallas. Backs—Barney Welsh, Stephen- ville; Ed Dusek, Temple; Bill Thomas, Sweetwater; and George Wilde, Graham, or Jennings An derson, San Antonio. During the 1909-10 term there were 243 tents stretched over a ten acre area on the A. & M. cam pus lodging 486 cadets. W. J. Douglas, Jr. INSURANCE AGENCY Rooms 18-20, Commerce Bldg.

VANDYKE STUDIO Bryan Taking the spotlight along with the varsity football team this week end, intramural cross country run ners will have their big day to morrow. Activities in the intramur al sports world here at Aggieland will begin Sunday afternoon in the vicinity of Kyle Field. The “Fish” will lead off at StOO p.m. and the upperclassmen will follow at 3:30. All runners are asked to report at least fifteen minutes early for the event. Last year class A honors went to 1 CHQ with W. W. Greif crossing the finish line 9: 5.0 minutes after the starting gu?i had sounded. Run ning in a driving rain, J. M. Vad- odos came in first for the class B. division. Vadodos Oxford was a member of 1st Headquarters Field and set a time record for the course, 8:39.0 Intramural water polo is now in the first rounds of the finals. League winners who have won their first matches and who are sched uled to play the winners of the one-eighth finals are: 2 CHQ vs. F FA, I FA vs. the winner of the D Eng-B Inf match; 6 CHQ vs. League D winners, and E FA vs C CWS. Last year’s water polo winner was E battery Field Ar tillery. FORFEIT DOGHOUSE Class A: 2 Hdq. Field, Tennis L Infantry, Tennis D CAC, water polo F Infantry, Tennis L Infantry, Handball C Cavalry, Basketball Class B: 2 CHQ, swimming H Field Artillery met E In fantry and played them two min utes to decide the winner of a foot ball game. Sounds silly, doesn’t it ? Well, here are the facts. With the score 13-13 and two minutes left to play, H Field kicked the ball. The ball bounced over the goal line and then by some trick of fate bounced back into the field of play. H Field covered the ball. The referee ruled a touchback, which he thought was right. After discuss ing the matter with the intramur al department, it was decided that the ruling was in error. So, Thurs day E Infantry was given the bah on the one yard line and they play ed H Field for two minutes. The outcome of the short game? E In fantry the ^vinner. Still fighting to the last minute, Welder of C Field was fouled and took his free shot in an effort to tie the game after H Coast had already won. Welder missed the free shot and the score of the game was 19 - 18 in favor of H Coast. Tough luck. Welder. DETROIT U Marquette DENVER U.
