    Aggies Meet Unpredictable Ponies This Afternoon

Track Team in Quadrangular Meet Today
Marty Karow, Navy Bound, Remembered Well
For His Hustling and Fighting Aggie Teams
“He played to -win.”
That is about the biggest com
pliment I can give Marty Karow,
the fiery Aggie basketball and as
sistant football coach, who left for
Annapolis yesterday as a lieuten
ant in the U. S. Navy.
Everyone remembers the hust
ling and fighting basketball team
that he put out this past year. The
word “quit” never entered Marty’s
head—it was either win or go
down fighting. And that particular
axiom worked wonders with the
cage team and effected one of the
best basketball seasons in many a
year here. His team wound up
sixth in standings, but every op
ponent knew that it had a fight
on its hands when it faced Marty’s
“never-say-die” five.
The word “hustle” was synony
mous with Karow’s name, both in
football and basketball. His cag-
ers came nearer winning by hustle
than by natural ability, for behind
them stood a man who would fight
to the last moment. Marty, at
times, was harsh with his boys for
some of the mistakes they made,
but everyone, down to the water
boy and the manager, respected
him for whatever he did.
Today, Marty is coaching a far
more important team—a team that
concerns everyone of us. He is in
the Navy, assisting the greatest
coach of them all—Uncle Sam.
Wherever he may be I know
everyone of us wishes him the best
of luck in the world, and all hope
that he’ll be back at Aggieland
following the termination of the
war. Until then, “Keep ’em float
ing, Marty!”

And Baylor
Meet Is Slated
To Start at Two
(TClock on the Dot
The vastly improved Texas Ag
gie track team will make its first
appearance since the upset defeat
of Texas some two weeks ago
when it takes on Baylor, SMU and
TCU in a quadrangular meet at
2:00 o’clock this afternoon here.
The Aggies are heavy favorites
to cop the meet, but are expected
to have plenty of trouble in hand
ling the Baylor squad. SMU will
enter a squad of only 10 men and
consequently cannot be rated as a
threat, while TCU will not have
many more men than that on hand.
Wilson Is Threat
Outstanding men of the Baylor
team, and a boy who is prac
tically a one man gang is the Bear
football ace Jack Wilson. Wilson
will be entered in no less than five
events in the meet which is quite
an afternoon’s work for any man.
He will take part in the shotput,
discus throw, broad jump, javelin
throw, and high jump.
Labus and Vadjos of the Aggie
squad are expected to meet some
plenty stiff competition in the 440
yard dash in the person of Pope
of SMU. This boy is the ace of
the Mustang squad, and has been
a consistent standout all season.
Bucek In Shape
Captain Roy Bucek of the Ag
gies is in fine shape for the meet,
and there is a distinct possibility
of his lowering the conference
hurdle mark this afternoon. The
rest of Coach “Dough” Rollins’
team is also in top condition, and
several conference records may be
Ags Sweep Series
From SHSTC Netmen
A. & M.’s tennis players out-
scored the Sam Houston College
players in seven matches played
here yesterday afternoon. Mar
shall, Thompson, Fernandez, Krez-
dorn and Patterson were the stars
who won every game from the
University of Wisconsin stud
ents who attended the 1942 jun
ior prom went without corsages to
buy more than $500 worth of de
fense stamps.
Further proof that intramural
sports give everyone a chance to
participate in the
same sports as do
varsity players,
the annual intra
mural track meet
will be held to
morrow after-
noon at 1:30 on
Kyle Field. The
meet will include
Oxford tations from both
class A and class B. Class A track
events and class B field events will
begin at 1:30 and the class B track
events will be run off at 3:30; in
connection with the B events class
A field events will also be run off
at that time.
For an organisation to receive
the 50 entry points, a unit must
have one or more men entered in
at least three different events.
The events on the program are:
100-yard dash, 110-yard low hur
dles, shot put, javelin throw, broad
jump, high jump, and the 440-yard
shuttle relay.
In the final tabulation of the re
sults of class B boxing, an error
was made. Reed of A Field Artil-
, lery is the winner of the 169 pound
class instead of Hogan. This new
“winner changes the following
places: Headquarters Cavalry is
still first but the order of winners
is D Field Artillery, second; 3 Hq.
Field Artillery, third; and B Coast
is among a tie concerning L In
fantry, D Engineers, and H Coast
Artillery for fourth place. The
place of the remaining winners is
the same.
Time Change
In order to make the intramural
schedules coincide with the new
time plan, it will be necessary to
subtract one hour from the game
times on all game schedules. Slips
received for contests scheduled aft
er April 12 will show the correct
playing time. If there is any doubt
as to the correct playing time, call
the intramural office.
Lil Dimmitt Nominated
For Presidency of NAT A
Lil Dimmitt, head baseball
coach and trainer at Texas A&M
College, may add some more chores
to his many other duties if the
members of the National Athletic
Trainers Association mark their
ballots in his favor at the annual
election to be held in Des Moines,
Iowa, April 24-25 in connection
with the Drake Relays in that City.
Receives Notice
Lil received notice this week
that he has been one of the train
ers nominated for the presidency
and also that his name will ap
pear on the ballot for a trustee
ship of the organization. He will
be opposed by Wilbur Bohm, Wash
ington State College, and Frank
Wiechec, Temple University, for
the presideny.
Long known in athletic circles
as a trainer and coach in high
schools and college, Dimmitt re
cently turned writer and has had
several articles on training prac
tices appearing in magazines ^f
the training profession. The past
two issues of TRAINER’S JOUR
NAL have given considerable space
to his articles and pictures, with
the current issue carrying his pic
ture in his training room as the
front cover.
Not First Time
The coming election will not be
the first time in his life that Lil
has been interested in the outcome
of an election for he was mayor
of Georgetown, Texas, before he
entered the coaching and training
profession in which he now is a
recognized authority.

Bryan, Texas Ph. 2-6605
AUSTIN, April 17.—Breaking
loose for five runs in the ninth
inning, the Texas Yearlings de
feated the Aggie Fish, 6-5, at Aus
tin yesterday afternoon, to even
the series between the two teams.
The Fish trimmed the Shorthorns
by the same score some three
weeks ago.
Going into the ninth with a 5-1
lead, big Lee Forrest, ace Fish
twirler seemingly had Texas eat
ing out of his hands. However, the
Yearlings started connecting and
coupled with Aggie miscues drove
over enough tallies to. sack up the
game. With the score tied at 5-5,
Andrews slashed a double to send
in the winning run.
The Aggies outhit the Texas
freshmen 15-t2, but couldn’t hit in
the clutches. Bill Selman/ stocky
Fish receiver, led the Ags’ offen
sive with three blows, including a
ringing triple. Forrest struck out
eight Yearlings and was never in
trouble until that fateful ninth

Game Is Set to Go Off
At Three 0’CIock Sharp
Chas Stevenson, Ace Ag Hurler, To Face
Atwell Tessman, S M U’s Tough Chunker
This afternoon at 3:00 o’clock on Kyle Field the Texas
Aggie baseball team engages the outfit which is fast be
coming known as the giant killers of the Southwest Con
ference loop, namely the S.M.U. Mustangs.
Charlie Stevenson, ace Aggie hurler will be on the
mound for A. & M. and his opponent will probably be Atwell
Tessman, most consistent of the Mustang pitchers.
At the outset of the season the'f ‘—■
Ponies were rated as one of the
weaker teams of the circuit, and
most of the pre-season dope favor
ed them to give someone a tough
battle for the cellar. But in the
two game series played earlier in
the season with both the league
leading Aggies and the favored
Texas Longhorns, the Mustangs
annexed a game from each of the
so-called strong teams on the con
ference race.
Upset Rice
Last Thursday in Houston, the
Ponies continued their policy of
upsetting the predictions by hand
ing the surprised Rice Owls a 9-6
shellacking. Sparkplug of the Mus
tang attack last Thursday was
centerfielder Cliff Hagerman, a
dang-erous man ^t the late, as his
three hits out of four trips to the
bat will attest to.
Another boy who contributes
much to the potent Pony batting
attack is Agel “Fvito” Gonzales,
Mustang football ace. At third base
the Dallasites have a boy who is
rated as. one of the best men in
Southwest Conference history to
hold down the hot corner, namely
Johnny Sebeck. Coupled with his
at times sensational fielding, Se
beck gives opposing hurlers plenty

Aggies Stronger
The Aggies have been looking
better the past weeks, and in their
game Wednesday with ■ Ellington
Field did much to remove one of
Coach Lil Dimmitt’s chief worries
concerning the hitting department,
Scoggins, Rogers, Peden, and Dan
iels all seem to have found their
batting eye in fine style, and are
expected to lead the Aggies attack
this afternoon.
The Aggies are in first place in
the conference at the present time,
with five wins against two losses.
One of these losses was to the
Mustangs, and today’s contest will
mark the rubber game of the
