ble four hundred and eighty points,
the A Company Indians won the
coveted Intramural Flag.
Taking the lead in the first com
petition, A Company won the

Stripling, L. Williams, West,
Young, Wyble, Webb, and Kibbe.

ians lacked only one half of a point
of tying for first with G Battery
who won the meet.

Company managed to take second
and third positions in their leagues.

Gridders Set For
Opener; Starting
Lineup Uncertain
With only light workouts sched
uled for this week, the Aggie foot
ballers are rapidly rounding into
playing form for their opening
game of the season Saturday aft
ernoon with Bryan Army Air Field.
Coach Homer Norton will not put
his charges through any heavy
scrimmage this week, as the boys
have been working out all summer
and he deems more rough stuff
is not needed.
Butch Butchofsky and Monte
Moncrief were named co-captains
for the opening game by Norton
Monday. Both boys are lettermen,
each being a regular last season.
Norton was undecided about his
starting lineup Monday, but when
the Aggies take the field Saturday,
they will look something like this:
Combining steady playing with
advantageous height, an F Com
pany sextet defeated D Company
in the finals of the Intramural
Volleyball competition yesterday
afternoon by a 2-0 score.
Although F company won the
match by taking the first two
games, the outcome was never cer
tain as the D Company men play
ed a hustling spirited game until
the last point had been lost.
As the first game began, both
teams scored consecutively until
midway in the game when the D
company squad gained a 11-9 lead.
The F company men rallied quick
ly at this point and forged ahead
to take the game, 15-11.

Bob Gary is a sure starter at |
the pivot position. This 164 pound
Dallas boy is the pepper-pot of
the team.
Damon Tassos will be at one
guard, while either Bill Gray or
Joseph Sacra will start at the
other. Tassos weighs 208 pounds,
Gray 215, and Sacra 187.
The tackle positions will be
filled by Moncrief, 195 pound let-
terman, and Charlie Shira, 230
pounder who also won a letter last
At the end positions it is a free-
for-all with four boys fighting it
out for a starting berth. Clarence
Howell, Walter Higgens, Milton
Cherno, and James Mitchell are
running a close race for these po
sitions, and any two may get the
nod Saturday.
At the quarterback slot, James
Cashion and Tom Daniel are fight
ing it out, but Cashion will prob
ably get the starting assignment.
Bob Butchofsky is a sure start
er at his right half back slot, but
two boys, Mann Scott and Bob
Goff are fighting it out for the
other back back post.
Jimmie Parmer, the Oklahoma
all stater, will probably start at
full back. George McAllister was
giving him a good race, but Mac

game was just as spirited as the
play which marked the first game
and the two teams employed every
trick in the book. F company took
a quick 8 to 4 lead and held this
advantage for some time until they
rallied to splurge ahead and take
the game by a 15 to 4 count. .
Sparking the F company attack
was Bob English, six foot plus sen
ior who made good use of his team
mates setups in spiking the ball
accurately consistently. When the
D company boys knocked the ball
over the net, Arbuckle, of F Co.,
usually on the receiving end and
he* neatly set the ball up for Eng
lish, Bill Davis, or any other of
his teammates to spike. F Company
used this method quite advanto-
geously and tallied most of their
points in this fashion. Meanwhile,
the D company men played a
steady conservative game with Jim
Henderson, Bob Seyle, or Dick
Goad occasionally leaping up to
spike one of F company’s offer
Completing the F Company ros
ter was Blackstone, Abrams, Ar
buckle, Wallace, Davis and Eng
lish. On the firing line for D
Company were Jim and Kirk Hen
derson, Gohmert, Coscia, Seyle and
The game was spirited and close
fought throughout and Mr. Pen-
berthy, head of the Physical Edu
cation Department, declared the F
company squad is one of the best
volleyball teams to ever play in

courts behind Kyle Field G Bat
tery defeated E Troop for the
Corps Championship in tennis by
a set count of two to one.
In the opening match, Barry and

excellent game. The artillery duo
outplayed the cavalrymen and won
the first five games. Barry and
Kancannon made a< good comeback
and won the next two games, but
despite their attempt to gain a
lead, Houston and Touchstone
won three consecutive games
which gave them the set.
Pickford and Harkey represent
ed G Battery and Dockery and
Thomas represented E Troop in
the second set of the afternoon.
Both sides were evenly matched.
Thomas and Dockery exhibited
some excellent teamwork during
the match, especially on difficult
return shots near the center of the
court. Pickford and Harkey made
some beautiful returns in this set
which they won by a game count
of eight to three.
Set number three was played off
by Turner and Walker of G
Battery and Kaplan and DeVires
of E Troop. Game winners alter
