He has been working hard ever since Septem ber in preparation for this base ball season, even going so far as to by-pass one of his favorite sports—basketball. He’s trained and trained until that former 212 lb. frame of his dwindled down to a mere 178 lbs. The cry “Let’s go Stevenson” may well become a reality for up on his shoulders rest all Aggie hopes for a conference champion ship. ’Tis no wonder that Coach Lil Dimmitt smiles when Charlie Stevenson tosses that curve at op posing batteries.

Brazos, Grimes County Women Learn About Automobiles in Driving Course -TUESDAY MORNING, MARCH 24, 1942 Symphonies andSwing Both Please Soldiers Carburetors, pistons, valves, sparkplugs, distributors and other parts of an automobile are no longer mysteries to 39 Brazos and Grimes County women, for they have just completed a course cov ering the component parts of an automobile and how to fix them. This was the trouble shooting sec tion of the women’s driving course offered under the auspices of the A. & M. National Defense Council, of which Dr. C. C. Hedges is chairman. With Prof. Fred R. Jones, head of the agricultural engineering de partment, in charge, the group met twice a week for three-and-a-half- week period for lecture demon- istrations on the detailed oper ation of the mechanism of an auto mobile and how to recognize and correct motor troubles. The course proved so interesting that often the session extended an hour or so beyond the two-hour period de signated for each class. Discus sions were backed up by actual demonstration in the showrooms where Prof. Jones and his assist ants, Don Christy and F. W. Piek- ert, operated the different type motors and gave a close-up view of what happens when unfavor able conditions exist. A written final examination completed the course. Under the direction of Prof. C. H. Groneman and C. N. Hielscher of the industrial education depart ment, the women had previously completed sixteen hours of study in the driving laws and principles of safe automobile operation. This safe driving section of the driv ing course was opened with a writ ten “Traveler’s Quiz,” which served as a good indicator of what the average driver does not know about proper and safe driving. An actual driver’s test similar to the one given to applicants for driv ers’ licenses, completed that sec tion of the course. Those completing the driver’s course, which is a pre-requisite —TEXAS WINS— (Continued from Page 3) 220 yard free style—Taylor, A. & M.; Johnson, Texas; Kiel, A. & M.; Winters, A. & M.; Ahr, Texas.
