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
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
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-

I think the following boys would
stand up against any softball
league and make a good showing.
Here they are: A Team—Beazley

and Bill Walker (Campus Thea
tre), catchers; Jennings (Campus

and Frost (Holick’s) 3b; Leo Dan

Dunn (Campus Cleaners), Farmer

Here’s the B team—Winder (Fac

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.

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

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,

An addition has been made to
the staff of the Intramural De

physical education and may be
considered a most valuable addi
tion to the local department. Ar

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,

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

G Infantry 8-7.
A Field Artillery took a Class A

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
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
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
Loupot’s Trading Post vs. Fac
ulty—Diamond 7.
Campus Cleaners vs. Campus
Theatre—Diamond 9.
Madeley’s Pharmacy vs. Aggie
Cleaners—Diamond 4.

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.
