Aggies Hold Weight Advantage Over
Froggies But Handicapped By Injuries
(Continued From Page 1)
After a light drill Monday afternoon, the Aggies have
been staging rough and tumble workouts all other days.
Both defense and offense have been stressed during these
sessions in order to get the team working more smoothly
than they have in the earlier games.
Injuries still plague the ranks of the Aggies, four back-
fielders being slewed or benched
for this game. Bob Butchofsky re
mains the big question mark, but
chances are he will see no action
against the Frogs. Butch has taken
no part in the drills since he suf
fered a fractured jaw, and has al
so been on a semi-liquid diet. Even
if he were allowed to play, he
would not be able to turn in his
usual brilliant game. Bobby Goff
is still suffering from a charlie-
horse, but he will be in the start
ing lineup. He did a remarkable job
punting in the L. S. U. game with
his bad leg, and should be in pret-

ty good shape for the Frog tilt.
Jimmie Parmer is still limping on
his bad lef which has bothered him
since the start of the season, and
George McAllister rehurt his knee
in practice this week which means
he will see no action Saturday.
The starting Aggie backfield
will probably consist of James
Cashion at his regular position of
quarterback; Mann Scott in
Butchofsky’s right half slot; Goff
at left half, with little Gene Spires
on hand as his first reserve; and
Paul Yates, the Conference’s lead
ing scorer, at fullback.
A. & M. will hold a five pound
weight advantage when the two
teams take the field Saturday.
The Aggie starters average 189
pounds while the Frogs will aver
age 184. The forward wall of A.
& M. has an average weight of
196 pounds, while the T. C. U. for
wards will tip the scales at 183
pounds per man. The backfield of
the Froggies will average 185
pounds, eight more than the Ag
gies 177.
Probable starting lineups:
T.C.U.: Gibson, left end; Crag-
well, left tackle; Houdek, left
guard; Cooper, center; Thomas,
right guard; Flowers, right tack
le; Chronister, right end; Sherrod,
quarterback; Mason, left half;
Ruff, right half; and Cox, fullback.
A. & M.: Howell, left end; Shira,
left tackle; Gray, left guard; Gary,
center; Tassos, right guard; Mon-
crief, right tackle; Higgins, right
end; Cashion, quarterback; Goff,
left half; Scott, right half; and
Yates, fullback.

To Meet Saturday
Before TCU Game

1:45 p. m., Saturday, just before
the A. & M.-T. C. U. football game,

Aggies, Mustangs, and Longhorns Picked
All six teams in the Southwest
Conference will pair off against
each other Saturday as the 1944
race gets into full swing. Three
close games are in prospect for
this week-end, and one or two up
sets can very easily occur.
As all teams in the Conference
are of fairly even strength, any
one who tries to predict the win
ners is sticking his neck out. How

call for ushers. These boys are
necessary, and all volunteers will
be appreciated, said Adamson.

Any public or private school of
a high school level or under and
operated on a non-profit basis, is
eligible to apply for Federal as
sistance. The exact amount of Fed
eral assistance will depend on the
financial need of the school and on
the type of meal served. The main
requisite for receiving Federal co
operation in providing the school
lunches is that a local school, pro
fessional, or social organization
undertake the responsibility of ac
tually operating- the program at
the local level. During the 1943-44
school year, more than 4 million
children in 31,000 schools through
out the Nation received lunches 'as
a result of assistance from the
War Food Administration, and it is
anticipated that even more children
will participate this year.

A Little Place - - -
- - - A Big Saving!
To DEVELOP AND USE ways and means for saving time and effort
is a typical American trait. You see it among your classmates and
you exhibit the same shrewdness when you send your packages,
laundry and baggage, home and return, by Railway Express. The
pick-up and delivery at your door, and the quick forwarding by fast
trains, or by superspeed Air Express planes, is a shipping service
unique in American life. It has saved time and effort for generations
of college students.
These nation-wide facilities are now being utilized to their utmost
by the government, industry and the public. You can help Railway
Express to carry its share of this war-time load by doing three simple
things: Wrap your packages securely—ad
dress them clearly—express them early. "A
shipment started right is half-way there.”
The game Saturday is a HARD one, but let’s
keep our animosity on the football field. BEAT TCU,
but treat our visitors with courtesy and considera
tion. “A Man is First of All a Gentleman.”
