Les Richardson, regular guard, suffered a bad ankle in scrimmage, and is expected to be replaced by Weldon Maples in the starting lineup. The only other possible change may be at tackle where Leonard Dickey, brilliant sophomore tackle may start in the place of Euel Wesson. The rest of the lineup will include Henderson and Sterling at ends, Roy Bucek at the other guard post, Martin Ruby at tackle, and Dub Sibley at center. Along with Moser in the backfield will be Marshall Spivey at the wingback spot, Willie Zap- alac at blocking back, and Jake Webster at fullback. Meanwhile, the Texas Long horns, already hopelessly out of the conference race, will attempt to regain the prestige which they lost to T. C. U. and Baylor. Picked by 99 experts out of 100 to finish no lower than first, the Steers went into this unforgettable Nov ember month with six consecutive victories by overwhelming scores, but alas and alack, the Bears of Baylor and the Horned Frogs of T. C. U. pulled the almost unbe lievable by tieing and trouncing the heretofore invincible Steers. Such is the case of the valiant Steer who went into this eleventh month of the year with the word “Rose Bowl” spread all over his forehead. Casting all wins and losses aside, Coach Dana X. Bible and his grid- sters, too, have been laboring over time to be in top shape for today’s fray. A win by the Steers would surely regain all their lost pres tige and it is certain that the Long horns will throw everything they have into the battle with the Ag gies. Layden and Crain Leading the Steer attack will be Pete Layden, phenomenal triple- threater, and Jack Crain, swivel hipped halfback and ace field gen eral. Layden is clearly remembered by Aggie patrons for his great work in stopping the powerful and oiled Cadet machine last year. It was his pass to Noble Doss on the 1 foot line which finally culminated in the winning touchdown. He is reported to be in top shape after being out at least half of the sea son with a chipped elbow and bad ankle. The other half of the Texas touchdown twins is Crain, leading scorer and only second to the Ag gies’ own Jake Webster in extra point kicking. Crain is primarly known for his quick breakaways which have gone anywhere from 55-80 yards. In ’39 and ’40 the Aggies stopped the “Nocona Nug get” cold, but it is a decided ques tion this year. He suffered a slight ankle injury in the T. C. U. game and may not be in top shape. Should he not start, however, Spec Sanders will be inserted in his slot. Noble Doss and Vernon Mar tin are the other backs in the quar tet. -SENIOR PLAYERS- (Continued from Page 1) nate luck of playing behind All- Conference End Jim Sterling. This fact has kept Harold from getting in as much time as his ability earns him but he did earn a letter in 1940. Cowley is strong on defense and has a reputation of rushing into the opposing backfield to mud dle up the passer. He lettered in football, basketball and track at Freer High School. At A. & M. he won freshman numerals in foot ball and track and since then has devoted all of his time to foot- ball. Derace Moser, of Stephenville, Texas, is one of two 1940 starters left over but was shifted from wingback to tailback where he has been the main passer and punt er for the Aggies. Moser is lead ing the conference as a passer and is high up in the list of ground gainers. His punting aver age is also among the best. In short, Mose is Aggieland’s triple threat man. He won freshman numerals in football, basketball, and track and has won two letters in football and one in track in varsity play. Martin Ruby, of Waco, Texas, is one of the starting Aggie tackles this year, after having understudied Chip Routt for two years. He played enough to earn two varsity letters. Ruby is as outstanding tackle in the conference and is one reason why A. & M. has the best tackle play in the Southwest. Earl “Bama” Smith, of Frisco City, Alabama, is one of the two out-of-state boys on the squad. He is renowned for his execution of the hideout play. In the 1941 Cot ton Bowl game against Fordham he took a long pass and ran 62 yards for a touchdown. His most famed hideout took place two years ago today against the Longhorns when he took a pass and set up the first touchdown of the day against the Steers. Bama has earned one football letter and two track let ters. Marshall Spivey of Lufkin, Tex as, is the first string wingback and signal caller of the 1941 Aggies. Playing behind Bill Conatser and Moser for two years, he did not see much service but is one of the stars of this year’s team. Spivey is a bril liant field general and has shown his skill in this season’s Cadet vic tories. He won a freshman football numeral and has two varsity letters in football and one in track. James Sterling of Panhandle, Texas, is the other remaining start' er of the 1940 team and is the only All-Southwest Conference man left on the squad. Jim has also re- Cnjpt-O-Quiz Presented for the interest of readers of The Battalion by the Cryptography Club. Quiz Conscious? Then try your skill at solving this coded message.

He is the youngest man among the seniors and played on the 1939 National Champion Aggie team when he was only 17 years of age. Sterling, the best among the Aggie ends, is fast, a good pass receiver, and an excellent pass de fense man. He has earned letters twice in football at A. & M. Euel “Poppa” Wesson of Temple, Texas, is the other starting tackle on the Aggie squad and spent two years understudying All-Confer ence Ernie Pannell. Poppa is one of the largest men on the squad and has won two varsity foot ball letters besides his freshman numeral. Zolas Motley of Abilene, Texas, is another Aggie who was stym ied by the excellent guards A. & M. had when he entered school. With Marshall Robnett and Charles Henke playing almost 60 minutes of every game it was difficult for anyone else to get any lettering time. He earned a freshman num eral and has turned in much bril liant play this year. Maurice “Cotton” Williams of Marlin, Texas, has been a squad- H£Y HEADING FOR HOME? Stan right and easy!

There are four lettermen ends ahead of him but he has broken into the lineup numerous times. He transferred to A. & M. from Texas Military College and hence was in eligible for a freshman numeral. These ten men were thought to be the only seniors to be lost to the Aggies but in a late check-up yes- terady it was discovered that an other player had been overlook ed through some oversight. Lester Richardson of Houston, Texas, is another of the long list of Aggies who were held back by stellar players just ahead of them. He is a scrappy guard and can play a good game. Les play ed several games in 1940, but, like other guards, could not sup plant All-America Marshall Rob nett. Rchardson. came to A. & M. from Marshall Junior College.

So you have the eleven seniors who have given all and asked for nothing in return.
