It’s Sports’ Day Today! Let’s All Turn
Out on Kyle Field and Help Out the T Club
This afternoon on Kyle Field, the
T Club Association will hold its an
nual Sports Day affair, featuring
a regulation football game between
the Regulars and Reserves, plus
an interesting relay track meet be
tween the Freshmen and the Var
Pete Henry, president of the T
Club, has been working hard to
make today’s Sports Day a real at
traction for the fans at Aggieland,
and it is only fair that all of us
should respond and attend this
gala affair. As of years past, the
annual Sports’ Day, which had its
christening only six years ago, was
a most successful enterprise, with
the Cadet Corps and Aggie patrons
responding admirably.
So come on all you sports fans!
Take time out this afternoon from
2:30 until 5:30 and give the “T”
Club a deserved helping hand by
attending their show. Besides do
ing a worthy deed, you probably
will get your last chance to view
Coach Homer Norton’s touted ’42
eleven, which already is threaten
ing to make the fruits of victory
Coach Hub McQuillan, Former Ag Mentor, To
Receive Welcome at DeWare House Tonight
It’ll be home-coming for the dur
able Hub McQuillan tonight, when
he brings his tough and doughty
Horned Frogs of T.C.U. to battle
Coach Marty Karow’s Aggie five
in a feature basketball attraction
at the DeWare Field House.
This is the first time that Mc
Quillan has faced his former pu
pils. Since leaving Aggieland last
year, Hub really has set the South
west Conference race afire by put
ting out the surprise team of the
year. The Frogs are still in the
thick of the race, and are expected
to make it tough for the Arkansas
Razorbacks or the Rice Owls be
fore the year is out. Tonight, Hub
McQuillan, the former likable Ag
gie coach, will be on the other side
of the fence, but Aggie fans still
welcome and salute him for his
great showing with an inexperi
enced team this year. Here’s to you
Hub! May your future years at
T.C.U. hold forth nothing but fame
and glory!

Sebeck, SMU Ace, Held To
One Point by Mike Cokinos
Henderson and Bayer Lead Cadet Attack
With 12 Points; Tomlinson Acounts for 17
By Mike Haikin
Battalion Sports Editor
Grabbing a lead at the outset of
the tilt, the Texas Aggies kept in
front all the way as they crush
ed a hapless S.M.U. Mustang five
47-29, at the DeWare Field House.
R. B. Bayer and Bill Hender
son led the Cadet attack with 12
points apiece, but it was the work
of scrapping Mike Cokinos that
turned the trick and won the first
home game of the year .for the
hustling Cadets. His defensive
work in holding the Mustangs’ ace
Johnny Sebeck to one free throw
had much to do in offsetting the
S. M.U. scoring power.
Tomlinson Leads Scorers
While the Aggies were giving
all their time to Sebeck, Tom Tom
linson took the opportunity to
make him some points as he hit
the meshes for 17 points to take
down top scoring honors for the
night. Fifteen of those came in the
first half, when he personally ac
counted for 15 of the 17 Mustang
Tonight, the Aggies will tan
gle with Coach Hub McQuillan’s
T. C.U. Horned Frogs, who are
securely lodged in third place in
the conference standings. Game
time will be 8:30.
Henderson and Tomlinson each
accounted for a field goal and a
free throw as the game was but
a few minutes old. Cokinos and
Jarrett added field goals before
Tomlinson hit the meshes for an
other two points. Then the Aggies
really broke loose. Bayer and Hen
derson hit two field goals and Na
bors and Jarrett hit one apiece
to stretch the Aggie lead to 16-5.
Tomlinson hit the hoop for two
more field goals and Baccus add
ed a free throw to\ close the gap,
but goals by Henderson and Nabors
finally brought the half-time score
at 24-17 in favor of the Cadets.
Aggies Stretch Lead
Welch and Harris hit for two
points apiece as the half opened
to cut the Aggie lead to three
points. However, field goals by
Bayer, Huffman, Cokinos, and an
other by Bayer and a couple by
Jarrett eased the pressure some
what, and from there on the Ag
gies were not even mildly threaten
The game itself was a wild af
fair, with both teams missing in
numerable amount of shots, but
Coach Marty Karow’s Aggies just
outclassed the S. M. U. Ponies with
their ball handling and under the
basket playing.
Twenty-six University of Texas
students, all 6 feet 3 or taller,
