BEAT BRYAN FIELD 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. The competition in the second 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 season. 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 injured his trick knee in Monday’s drill. BEAT BRYAN FIELD Houston Aggies to Have Dance Sept. 27 Announcement of final plans for the A. & M. Houston Club dance to be held in Houston on Wednes day, September 27, has been made by Tommy Penn, president of the club. The dance will be held at the Plantation in Houston beginning at nine o’clock. 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 ings. 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 Goad. 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 Intramural competition. . . .
