. V I. » * * • * / By (Bike Haikin Battalion Sports Editor Cadets’ Response in Turning in Ballots May Place Few Aggies on All-Star Squad Balloting for the College All- Star team ended Thursday here, and, although at this time, final tabulations have not as yet been completed, the response by the Ca dets was far over expectations. Sure enough, Aggies dominated the team, but, with a few excep tions, the Cadets proved to be pret ty good pickers. Since, they were more or less restricted to South west Conference players, the ma jority of the ballots did not include gridsters outside this area. Before the voting even had start ed in these parts, Jim Sterling, Martin Ruby and Derace Moser were already assured of a spot on the All-Star squad, but the reason for this writer’s request for an avalanche of votes for these boys is the fact that enough votes may be able to shove one of the three Aggie aces into a starting post. Sterling led all votes, missing out on only a scant number of ballots. Moser and Ruby were right behind and received plenty of help from this Cadet corps. Besides these three Aggies men tioned, Roy Bucek and Marshall Spivey have a good chance to make the squad. Bucek, especially has been polling a great number of votes and came out far ahead of his nearest rival, Chal Daniel, Tex as’ sensational guard. These boys have not been mentioned too much in the nation’s voting, but those extra votes by the Cadets may be just the thing that puts them on the All-Star team. Aside those fans who voted “hat-cord,” that is, naming all Ag gies on the team, the voting was quite representative. Tabulations so far show the following team: Sterling (A. & M.) and Kutner (Texas), ends; Ruby (A. & M.) and Pasqua (S.M.U.), tackles; Bu cek (A. & M.) and Daniel (Texas), guards; Clarkson (A. & I.), cen ter; and Moser (A. & M.), Spivey (A. & M.), Layden (Texas) and Wilson (Baylor), backs. Spivey was only a scant number of votes ahead of Presto Johnson, S.M.U. back. Surprise of the voting was A. & I.’s great pivot man, Stu Clarkson, who outranged A. & M.’s J. M. (Cotton) Williams by a small mar^ gin. Clarkson had to rally fast to beat out Williams, who, for a time was far ahead. Again, this corner wants to thank all those who took part in the voting. I know this will be duly appreciated by all the Aggie gridsters in the running and may help them either get on the start ing lineup or at least make the squad. Thanks again for your great cooperation. Sports Squibs From Here and There; Some Notes on Twilight League Here and Yonder Notes on Twilight League soft- ball . . .

Diamond 7 Holick’s Cleaners vs. Faculty Diamond 9 The league-leading Loupot’s Trading Post team faces its tough est test of the current Twilight League season when it collides with the fast and rugged Campus Cleaners Monday night. The Clean ers have been steadily improving of late, and it would be no great surprise if they pulled into a tie with Loupot’s by virtue of this contest. Wednesday night the Cleaners took on Western Auto team, cur rent leaders of the Bryan league, and decisively defeated them by a top-heavy score of 18-6. The heavy hitting of the Campus boys is quite a factor to be reckoned with as the score of this contest will attest. Loupot’s team has been setting quite a pace for the Twilight League, and are now riding the crest of an eight game winning Aggie Polo Team Makes First Debut of Summer This Afternoon; Clash With Strong San Angelo Team at 2:30 Clashing with the hard riding, hard hitting San Angelo Javelinas, the A. & M. polo team will play the first of a two game series this afternoon at 2:30, according to Marty Mertz, team spokesman. The match will be played on the polo field north of the East G'ate. The other game of the series will be played Sunday afternoon at the same time and place, Mertz said. Boasting an undefeated record this season, the San Angelo team is one of the strongest teams in Texas. At a meet held in San An gelo in June the Javelinas defeat ed in ^hort order teams from Big Spring, Lamesa, Lubbock and Dal las. Riding at the number one post for San Angelo is Len Mertz. At number two post will be Fred Roe, Jr. Both of these men are hard riding veterans. At number three In an era of slogans and by words a typical phrase has been adopted by the Intramural depart ment as their official slogan. It is “Keep ’em Playing.” These words exemplify the spirit of the depart ment in their never-ending endeav or to encourage participation in sports over the campus.

Of added interest to the match is the fact that two members of the Aggie team will be playing their father. Joe and Marty Mertz, number one and number four play ers respectively for the Aggies, will cross mallets with the number one player of the Javelinas and will try to show their father some new tricks to the game. Regardless of the outcome of the friendly rivalry between father and Eligibility The Intramural department has requested that an explanation be given concerning Class A and B eligibility in an effort to clarify this matter. It seems that one team was disqualified from a Class B league play-off because of the use of sophomores who did not have their P.E. credit. Here is the definition of who is eligible for Class B competition as given by the Intramural Hand book: “A freshman is defined as a student who is attending college for the first time or one who has transferred from another college and who still is required to take Required Physical Education.” Just remember that anyone who does not wear a fish stripe plays Class A sports but anyone who wears a fish stripe does not necessarily play Class B. A man wearing a fish stripe participates in Class B sports unless he has transferred from another school and already has his P.E. credits. Champs Champions will be decided in various sports as playoffs are com ing to a close. E Infantry meets E Field Artillery and C Replacement Center takes on B Infantry in the semi-final events of Class B volley ball Monday afternoon. The cham pions of Class A water polo will be decided early next week when 3rd Headquarters Field Artillery and I Field Artillery clash to de cide the top team. New Sports New leagues now beginning are Class A volley ball and swimming and Class B water polo and tennis. Schedules were sent to' recreational officers by the department yester day afternoon. Class B water polo opened Thursday night and the other sports will begin immediate ly. G Coast Artillery really cleaned house on B Cavalry in a Class A softball game in which the Artil lerymen whitewashed the Cavalry men 24-0. Ed Wood, on the mound for the Coast team, slugged out a couple of hits besides holding down sons Lt. North promised that there would be plenty of action. Mertz said admission would be free and urged that a large crowd turn out with that “ole Army” spirit and support the Aggies.

The Loupot boys feature a well rounded attack combining excellent pitching, good fielding, and a heavy batting attack. Lipscomb’s Pharmacy, currently resting in third place in the lea gue, takes on Aggie Cleaners in another Monday night contest. Lipscomb’s has slipped from the fast pace they set a few weeks back, and are now in somewhat of a slump. The Aggie Cleaners gave the Campus Cleaners a terrific bat tle in their game Wednesday night before they finally succumbed 4-2, and can be expected to give Lips comb’s plenty of trouble. In the other two games Monday night, Campus Theatre takes on Madeley’s Pharmacy and Holick’s Cleaners clash with the Faculty. The Campus Theatre team after losing to Loaipot’s and Campus Cleaners came back strong in their last two contests, defeating both Lipscomb’s Pharmacy and Holick’s Cleaners by the identical score of 6-4. Holick’s Cleaners have been more or less of an in and out team in their past few games but have been losing by very close scores. The Holick boys have a good hit ting and fielding team, but erratic pitching has handicapped them. The Faculty has been having ex ceedingly hard luck of late and as a result are in the league cellar. The “profs” have been playing pretty fair ball, but a serious weakness in their pitching staff has held them down. Twilight Leaguers Score 3-2 Victory Over Bryanites Thurs The Twilight League All-Stars drew first blood in their two game series with the Bryan Commercial League All-Stars Thursday eve ning as they came out winners by the score of 3-2 after a hotly con tested game. Sparked by Jimmy Newberry’s triple to right field in the fourth inning and some tight pitching by Johnny Hejl and Greg Ramsey, the Twilight Leaguers came from behind and overcame a two run lead by the visitors. For the first two innings both Roger Bond of the Bryan All- Stars and Hejl of the Twilight League All-Stars held the batters in check. Then, in the third inning the Bryanites collected their two runs as Hejl ran into a streak of wildness and with the bases full two men crossed the plate on wild pitches before Hejl settled down and retired the side without fur ther damage. The Bryan All-Stars didn’t en joy their lead very long, however, as Newberry opened the fourth inning with a lusty triple to right field. Sims got to first base on an error by the Bryan third baseman with Newberry holding third. Rob erts grounded out to the second baseman and in an attempt to cut Newberry off at the plate the ball got away from the catcher and both Newberry and Sims crossed the plate to tie up the ball game. Later in the same inning a wild throw to third base while trying to catch Roberts off the bag, en abled the Twilight All-Stars cen- terfielder to cross the plate with what later proved to be the win ning run. Johnny Hejl and Greg Ramsey shared the Twilight League’s pit ching chores. Hejl started the game and allowed two runs and the same number of hits in four innings. Ramsey took over in the fifth and pitched the last three innings of the game holding the Bryan All-Stars hitless and run less. Hejl chalked up three strike outs during his stay on the mound and Ramsey retired one batter in the same manner. Bond pitched creditable ball for the Bryan All- Stars and the fourth inning ra 1 ly which spelled defeat for the Bryan (See TWILIGHT |>a<re 4) Trade With Don HE’S RIGHT WITH YOU LOUPOT’S VISIT OUR FOUNTAIN For The Best and Coolest Drinks In Aggieland GEORGE’S YOUR PHOTOGRAPH Will Be The Topic of Discussion When you send it home to your friends and loved ones — Photographs of Distinction — Aggieland Studio North Gate We Have All Kinds of Cold Drinks On Hand At All Times Drop by after you have been to the poll.
