1 Twilight League Managers to Meet Wed And Select Players for Annual All-Star Affair Following Wednesday’s Twilight League games, all managers will meet in the lounge of the Y.M.C.A. for the purpose of electing players to participate in the annual Twi light League-Bryan All-Star game which will be held Thurs day and Friday, July 23 and 24 in College Station and Bryan respectively. It is important that each of the team heads be present as a representative group is desired to represent this league. If three or four managers are ab sent, it is very likely that their star players will get little if any consideration to play in the forth coming classic. So, don’t forget, fellows, let’s all be present next Wednesday, because whether you are there or not, the selections for the two all-star teams will be made. Now as to the selections them selves. There will be two different teams, each composed of 15 play ers. One will play in Bryan while the other will play hosts at Col lege. The method of selection of these particular players will be all left up to the managers. Choosing all-star teams always gives a headache to the selectors. The best of players are on many occasions left out, but as everyone cannot be put on these particular teams, the situation is unavoid able. Wednesday, the present league managers have their chance to select a representative group— teams that will go up against the best competition, so think twice before you choose a man. This scribe has, along with the other managers of the league, giv- dn a good once over to every team and the following is just the opin- BARRACKS BROWNS Step Out Halt, men! Eyes right!

Allen, Owner College and Bryan ion of the writer and nothing else. I think the following boys would stand up against any softball league and make a good showing. Here they are: A Team—Beazley (Campus Theatre), and Hejl (Lou- pot), pitchers; Taylor (Loupot) and Bill Walker (Campus Thea tre), catchers; Jennings (Campus Cleaners) lb; Glass (Campus The atre), 2b; Newberry (Loupot) ss; and Frost (Holick’s) 3b; Leo Dan iel (Campus Theatre), Sims (Lip scomb’s Pharmacy), Roberts (Lip scomb’s Pharmacy), and Zapalac (Campus Theatre), outfielders; Dunn (Campus Cleaners), Farmer (Madeley’s Pharmacy), Carl! (Fac ulty), utility men. Here’s the B team—Winder (Fac ulty), Lawler (Madeley’s) and Rideout (Campus Theatre), pitch ers; Lietz (Campus Cleaners), Warren (Holick’s), catchers; Black (Campus Theatre), lb; Atkins (Lipscomb’s Pharmacy, 2b; Gran tham (Campus Cleaners), ss; Jim Daniels (Campus Cleaners), 3b; Nesbit (Holick’s) Riley (Aggie Cleaners), and Barton (Loupot) outfielders; Reese (Loupot) and L D. Smith (Lipscomb’s Pharmacy) utility men. Of course, this may not all be your choice or selection, but I’ll bet a dollar to a doughnut that both of the teams mentioned could go places in any softball league. Sports Squibs From Here And There; Porter Advances To Class A Baseball League Sam Porter, former hard-hit ting Aggie first baseman has been transferred from the' Hamilton, Ontario team to Asheville, North Carolina, a Class A team . . .

Over 200 Aggies are entered in these various contests which call upon the participant’s initia tive. Each contestant is required to schedule his own matches at a time most favorable to himself. The entrants are given a week in which to play each round of the tournament. The first round of contests must be played by Sun day, July 19, or the match will be forfeited. At the present time the' tourna ment schedules are posted on the bulletin board in the main Intra mural office. As soon as a bulle tin board is erected adjacent to the Intramural Clubroom in the north east corner of the gym the sched ules will be moved to that location. Officials of the tournament wish to remind entrants that no sched ule cards or notices of any kind will be sent out to each individual. The entrants must come to the gym; consult the schedules posted there; and then contact their op ponents in order to arrange a game. Anyone desiring information on the events may contact W. L. Pen- berthy or “Spike” White at the gym. Rules of the contests are pasted with the schedule of each sport. W N Dowell Begins Duties With ’Mural Department Mon W. N. Dowell, former director of physical education at Abilene Christian College started his new duties in the intramural depart ment here at A. & M. yesterday. Dowell was appointed to fill the vacancy left in the department when Col. Frank Anderson was called to active duty with the Field Artillery at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. The appointment of Dowell is only for the duration, said W. L. Penberthy, head of the physical education department, however the ever-increasing physical fit ness program of the college may make his appointment permanent. Penberthy said that he hopes to develop badminton and archery in the expanded intramural program, and Dowell is considered an out standing man in both of these sports. BATTALION An addition has been made to the staff of the Intramural De partment in the person of W. N. Dowell, formerly of Abilene Chris tian College, who is replacing Col. Frank Anderson. Dowell is an out standing authority in the field of physical education and may be considered a most valuable addi tion to the local department. Ar chery and badminton will be two sports to which Dowell will devote much of his time. Any Aggies in terested in these sports should get acquainted with him as soon as possible.

The department wishes to caution en trants that no schedule notices will Statement Made by Norton In ’40 Turning Into Reality Now Back on August 6, 1940, Coach Homer Norton, head man of ath letics at Texas A. & M. College, made a remark that is becoming more significant every day. Country First Interviewed by Frank Tolbert, sports writer for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, at the high school all-star game in Austin that year, Norton di^ussed the possibilities of his players .being called to serv ice before they f’rished their eligi bility and said, “Itk not worrying about this conscription business. If such an emergency develops that my boys are needed, tn "m football will become very unirrt- portant to me.” Since that time Norton has seen somewhat of a parade of depart ures for military and naval serv ice. Men counted upon for the two campaigns since have left for the army or navy and now four of his coaching staff have gone off to the wars. Four Leave In ’41 First to leave after the 1941 season ended were Leonard Dickey, tackle, and Dennis Andricks, full back. Both were lettermen and fig ured to j?lay a lot of football this year. At the end of the regular school year Bob Tulis, only letter- man tackle left, resigned from school to join the fighting forces. Since then Tom Pickett, letterman wingback, has enlisted. Freshman co-coach Charlie De- Ware volunteered and at last re ports was in the infantry as a private at Camp Wolters. Back- field Coach Marty Karow was commissioned a lieutenant in the U. S. Navy and then End Coach J. W. (Dough) Rollins was re called to active duty as a captain of infantry. On his heels went Col. Frank Anderson, golf and cross country coach who was figured upon to take over the track team left by Capt. Rollins. Dorm to Navy And if that was not enough Utay Hall, the dormitory assigned to the athletes, was turned over to house the Navy personnel assigned to the college for training. All of the Aggie athletes have gone back to their respective companies, bat teries or troops and now are scat tered all over the campus instead of being grouped in the one hall, '.^ince that interview the Aggies hai won another conference championship and shared the title with S.jiLU. and of the graduates a total of twenty-seven have gone into the service as commissioned officers in the: army or navy. x Marines Score 10-9 Softball W;in Over C Coast Artillery Thurs The initial contest between Ag gies and members ^of the armed services stationed hpre took place Thursday night wher-i a team from the College Station Marine de tachment took on (p Battery Coast Artillery. The gan»e turned out to be one of the wildest and most free-scoring contests ever seen in these parts with/ the Marines em erging on top of a 10-9 count. A return matqm between the two teams is scheduled for tomorrow night and the C^ast Artillery boys are hot for revenge. be sent out. The participants MUST contact their opponents and arrange a time for their match. The first round of games must be played by Sunday, July 19. The schedules are posted temporarily in the main Intramural office, pending the erection of the bulle tin board in the northeast corner of the gym. * In Class B softball the L In fantry freshmen ran wild over the F Infantry team to wallop them 36-0. This is a strong bid for the high-scoring honors in the softball race. The 3rd Corps Headquarters freshmen went down before the onslaughts of C Cavalry to lose 18-10. B Field Artillery took I In fantry 18-10. The last two Class B softball games, though not so spectrfbular, were a pair of hard fought match es. The American Legion team de feated D Replacement Center 7-4 and C Field Artillery nosed out G Infantry 8-7. A Field Artillery took a Class A softball game as they walloped F Engineers 24-10. H Field beat Headquarters Cavalry 16-9 and M Infantry defeated D Replacement Center 11-6. G Coast Artillery whipped the 3rd Stoop Quartermasters 10-4 and D Infantry took A Signal Corps 6-2 in the last two Class A softball games. Other intramural scores: CLASS A Tennis 1 Hdq.

Diamond 6 INTRAMURALS By Mike Mann Loupot’s Trading Post showed signs of developing into a real threat for the Twilight League crown last night when they bested the Campus Theatre, 2-1, and took over undisputed lead over the lea gue. Holick’s Beat Campus Cleaners Holick’s Cleaners deserve a big assist in putting Loupot’s in the lead for their 3-1 victory over the Campus Cleaners left the former ahead by one game. In other games, Lipscomb’s Pharmacy fell further down by losing to Madeley’s Pharmacy, 3-1 and the Aggie Cleaners climb ed a notch with their 8-6 victory over the Faculty. But back to the Loupot-Campus Theatre game. It was a sweet vic tory for Johnny Hejl, ace hurler for Loupot’s, who held the The atre bunch to one scratch hit, a bunt by Bill Black in the third inning. For Charlie Beazley, fast pitcher for the Campus Theatre, it was a heartbreaker. He allowed but three hits, but two walks plus a timely blow by Catcher Jack Taylor sent two runs scurrying across the plate in the first inn ing. The Theatre made their run when Black got an infield hit and came all the way home when J. R. Adams dropped Leo Daniels long fly. Good Pitching Some fine hurling by Buck Hogge of Holick’s enabled Mopey Smith’s ten to defeat the perenial favorites, Campus Cleaners. The former scored all its runs in the third and fourth while the latter managed for a tally in the first inning. Hogge allowed but four scattered hits while his mates blasted the offerings of Jim Dan iels for seven safeties. The biggest upset of the day goes to Madeley’s Pharmacy who really put on a show defeating the Lipscomb’s Pharmacy, 3-1. Maxwell’s lusty homerun in the first inning brought in Reed ahead of himself to send Madeley’s away to a 2t-l lead. Lipscomb’s had ac counted for their run in the first when Roberts drew first on an error and came in on hits by Smith and Punch. 4-run Rally A four run rally in the sixth inning enabled the Aggie Clean ers to come through with an 8-6 win over the Faculty. The latter had opened the game with a four run outburst but three runs in the first and four in the sixth was too much as Doc Kerby whithered through the last three innings without allowing a run. The teams play again Wednes day with the following tilts on tap: Loupot’s Trading Post vs. Fac ulty—Diamond 7. Campus Cleaners vs. Campus Theatre—Diamond 9. Madeley’s Pharmacy vs. Aggie Cleaners—Diamond 4. Holick’s Cleaners vs. Lipscomb’s Pharmacy—Diamond 6. Survey of Preferences In Sports Taken Soon Recreational survey blanks will be circulated in the near future, the Parks and Recreation class of the Landscape Arts Department stated Monday. This survey will endeavor to find out what sports the students take part in other than the Intramurals and what types of sports students would be interested in if the facili ties were present. These blanks will be filled out and turned in to the organization recreation officer. The United States has some 600 junior colleges. Patronize Our Agent In Your Outfit.
