Meet the Aggies.... By R. L. Weatherly And here they are . . . the 1943 Aggies! At the start of the season the big time sports writers gave the Aggies a corner in the South west Conference’s cellar. Now that this “glorified high school team” has romped through the first three games of the season with three thrilling victories, it looks as if they will go all the way and most of those sports writers who dis carded the Aggies to the ground floor have climbed on the Aggie band wagon.

This will not be the first time that Miss Adams has received rec ognition on the A. & M. campus, for in 1942 she was selected by band leader Glenn Miller from many other beauties to be one of the girls in the “Senior Favorite” section of the Longhorn for 1942. Last night many of the Aggies made the trip to Denton where the Tessies played hostesses to them at a dance in the Union building from 8 until 11 o’clock. The Cadets usually have a swell time at “Ag gie-Heaven” and last night was no exception. The members of the corps wish to use this medium to thank the students of T. S. C. W. and their dean, Mrs. Mattie Lloyd Wooten, for the courtesies extend- OfficialsandManagersMeet To Plan Activities For Fall Basketball and Touch Football First; Speedball, Handball, Track Later On Last Wednesday night the Physical Education depart ment held its annual get-together at the Y. M. C. A. cabin and discussed plans for next semester’s intramural sports ac tivities. Mr. Penberthy welcomed those present and stated that the purpose of the get-togeth-'t — er was to let the boys ask ques tions and to get organized. Mr. Penberthy, acting as master of ceremonies, then introduced M. L. Cashion of the Y. M. C. A., L. D. Boone of the Student Ac tivities Office, and the following tactical officers, who in turn in troduced the cadets who were ap pointed intramural managers for their ‘ various organiaztions: Col. A. J. Bennett, Major Joe E. Davis, Major J. E. Breland, Major G. P. Lerner, Captain C. E. Williams, Captain J. H. Echterhoff, Lt. R. W. Snyder, and Lt. A. J. Garafola. Colonel Welty, our P. M. C. & T. then delivered a short talk on his opinion of the P. E. and intramural program. Col. Welty said that the need for physical training is ap parent in the Army and that we should be proud because we have prepared our boys to take the toughest jobs. He also told the athletic officers that job is an important one and that they should be proud to hold it. Mr. Penberthy then introduced his assistant, Mr. Ponthieux and Dr. Bolton, the principal speaker of the evening, who then took the floor. Dr. Bolton, in his speech, mentioned the many purposes that our intramural sports program serves. “Of course,” said Dean Bolton, “the most important pur pose is to prepare boys for the rigorous army life they will soon encounter, but the development of competitive spirit, discipline, self- control, and loyalty cannot be neg lected when mentioning the merits of such a program.” Dean Bolton then complemented the athletic oficers and wished them success. He said that he be lieved that the main reason for the succes of A. & M.-Exes was the fact that they lived at Aggieland with their fellow Aggies and really got to know what that Aggie spir it meant. After Dean Bolton’s talk Mr. Penberthy outlined the program for this fall and gave the intramural managers their instructions. Ac cording to Mr. Penberthy the first two sports in line are basketball and touch football, with cross country, water polo, and perhaps others such as speedball and hand ball later on in the winter. It was stated that any man who wishes to play will be given a chance and it is hoped that there will be no forfeits this smester. When the corps lived in organizations the intramural program worked out well and there is no reason why the cadets should not have pride in their organizations now. Games will start at 5:10 and 5:50 when the new time schedule goes into effect.. AGGIE ROSTER NO. PLAYER 8 Murnane, Thomas G. 10 McCurry, Bobby G. 12 Hallmark, James L.

Tigers Think Aggie Spirit Is Powerful Factos To let you Aggies and T. S. C. W-ites know what other schools think of the Aggie Spirit that we demonstrate at all the football games by yelling our heads off, here is a paragraph from an ar ticle that appeared in L. S. U/s. “Reveille” immediately after last Saturday’s game. “Across the football field Sat urday night sat a handful of Texas Aggies in their own little cheering section. Their cheerleaders per formed no fancy tricks and wore no flashy clothes. They didn’t have a band. Yet that comparatively small group made more noise and showed more enthusiasm over the game than did the entire L. S. U. half of the stadium.” Well, fellows, today we don’t have a “little cheering section.” We have a helluva big “Yelling” one, and just at the side of each of us sits a Tessie-W-ite that’s yelling just as hard as we are. ed them and the enjoyable dance given for them. They’ve got the spirit too, and be tween us two, let’s tell the world who’s side we’re on. And, fellows, that band is com posed mainly of “frogs and “fish,” but it his really been giving out. There are just about a hundred pieces in the whole outfit. They gloriously glorify the “War Hymn” and make fingers run up and down our spines when the “Spirit of Aggieland” is played. So, Aggies and gals and whoever else happens to get one of these specials, you are seeing right here a part of the Aggie spirit. And you will as long as there’s a breath of air left in an Aggie. Spirit’s cannot die ... . and this one won’t! If you don’t de- lieve this, ask the 21 generals that have come from our ranks, or the 10,000 officers that graced our corps at one time .... the men on Bataan and Corregidor .... the men in North Africa and Italy .... and these fellows you see here today .... tomorrow in Tokyo and Berlin.
