JOHNSTON Odell Stautzenberger again help ed his cause along for All-Con ference honors Saturday in the game with the Sooners. He start ed in the game with Tech the week before and continued in his climb Saturday. , Stautzenberger threw the block that cleared out th efirst of the opposition to Flanagan in his 72-yard touch down run and he was also in on most of the plays that held the Sooners when they were on our goal line. Stautzenberger has played very consistent football in all three of the games the Aggie have play ed thus far in the season and if he continues to play this brand of ball he is a cinch for All-Confer ence. It is even possible that he could make an All-American dream team. New Name New Building New Merchandise Every Aggie is cordially invited to inspect'College Station’s Newest Clothiers.

WEISS Next to Campus Theater The Aggie student body was taken care of in the usual way last Saturday afternoon at Norman at the A&M-O. U. football game. The corps was seated on the goal line and as high up in the stands as possible. I understand that it is necessary on out-of-town games to seat the corps at the top of the stands as they stand up throughout the game; some of the other schools object to this practice, but that is no excuse for placing them on the goal line. If the team is going to play most of its games on the road, as it does, the stu dents who follow the team should at least be furnished with decent seats when they get to the game. There were quiet a few mistak es in the officiating of the game in Norman last week end that were very visible from the press box. We are not saying that the Aggies would have won the game had the officiating been more accurate but they could have made it look some what legal. On several instances the Soon ers would draw a fifteen yard penalty and the referee would use his SHORT legs and step off only 13 or possibly 14 but on the other hand when the Ags lacked five yards for a first down and they drew a five yard penalty for off sides it would be noted that after the referee had finished stepping off the penalty the Aggies would be at least one yard behind where the series of downs started and sometimes as much as two yards. These were not isolated cases as the whole press staff commented on them at different times and toward the end of the game the sport writers were checking the officials very closely on this type of error. Another very bad mistake the officials made came early in the second quarter when the Ags had a third down with two need ed for a first. They went into a huddle and the side line marker showed that it was third down, then they came out of the huddle the marker had been changed and it then showed fourth down. Another huddle was called immed iately and a kick ordered. This made the Aggies kick on third down when they only needed two for a first. This one time may not All-Conference Bound "Wow!

Closing Second’s Field Goal Wins For Sooners The Ag-s lost for the second week in a row this week when they went down to the highly favored Oklahoma team by the score of 10-7. The Sooners scored their touch down in the second quarter when McNabb of OU blocked Barney Welch’s kick and Trotter of OU recovered on the Aggie five. The Aggie line held for three downs then Mitchell carried the ball through the left side of the line for the score. Wallace of OU then kicked the extra point and the score was Sooners 7, Aggies 0. The Aggie score came early in the second half. Flanagan took a 37 yard kick from Davis of OU, and ran it 72 yards for a TD Stautzenberger, Aggie guard, have meant anything in this game but it could have been the winning or losing play. I have not checked with Coach Norton on this but it is my opinion that the referee who handled Saturday’s game will never handle another for the Aggies. Here I go again on trying to pick them. So far this season my batting average is close to nill but I keep on trying. To start things off I take the Aggies over LSU. To some this sounds foolish but on the basis of the improvement shown during the week before the Sooner game I am stick ing with the Aggies. Texas Christian over Miami, Texas over Oklahoma University, Rice to best Tulane, Arkan sas to floor Baylor, Oklahoma A&M to bury SMU, and the romping Red Raiders to re main undefeated when they take on Tulsa. threw the block that started Flan agan on his jaunt, then some fancy running and excellent down field blocking tied the ball up at 7-7. The game then see-sawed from one end of the field to the other till late in the fourth quarter when the Sooners returned Hollmig’s 32 yard up-wind punt back to the Ag gie 25. On the first play Shefts tossed Royal for an eleven yard loss. The next play Royal took the ball on a reverse and was knocked out of bounds by Flana gan on the Aggies 6 after a thirty yard run. The Sooners then had a first down with goal to go on the Farmer’s six, but the Ag line held them for only a one yard gain for two attempts, and then a five yard penalty for too much time in the huddle set them back making it third down on the Ag 9. Wallace then kicked a field goal from the Aggie nine with only forty seconds left in the game. The Aggies took the ball on their own twenty but only had time for two more plays before the time ran out ending the game 10-7 in favor of the Oklahoma INTRAMURALS By Cliff Ackerman Plans for placing the Intramural Athletic Program in the hands of Intramural Departmental Mana gers selected from Sophomore and Junior students has been announc ed by C.

He Talks a Wonderful Touchdown by PETE MARTIN Aggies Journey to Baton Rouge For Fourth Game Texas Aggies - LSU Tigers Stage Eighteenth Match Saturday, Nov. 12 This week the Aggies face a highly optimistic LSU eleven fresh from a 13 to 6 win over Mississippi State and a 7 to 6 win over Rice on a muddy field. A. & M., in prev ious years, has won nine of the seventeen games played with LSU and tied two. Ag B Team Loses To Owlets 13-6 In a hard played, evenly match ed game at Kyle field at 3:00 o’clock Friday afternoon, the Rice Owlets trimmed the Aggie Bs with a score of 13 to 6. Rice, with an admittedly good team, trailed the Aggies all dur ing the first half in which the Cadets with a seriese of rushes and passes had things pretty much their own way. After a series of fast plays that put them well up into pay territory Beesley, Aggie quarter back, carried the ball over with an end play to put the Aggies ahead 6 to 0. Toward the end of the third quarter, a quick kick by Beesley was blocked and recovered by Strain of Rice on the Aggie 24 yard line. After that a double re verse play featuring Owlets New- bill and Barker carried the ball over to pay dirt, the T. D. being made by Barker and making the score 6-6. In the fourth quarter a pass from Newbill to Worrell put Rice on the Aggie 24 and a double re verse by Reininger, Shirocky and Burt payed off, giving the Owls an additional six points. A well placed kick then gave them a lead of 13 to 6 with four minutes to go. Aggie B - Randolph Match Canceled The game between the Texas A&M “B” team and Randolph Field that was scheduled for Octo ber 11 at Kyle field has been can celed. Coach Homer Norton received a telegram Wednesday morning Coach Bernie Moore’s Tigers have made a creditable record thus far this year with two wins in two games against tough opponents. They have back with them 9 of the eleven ’45 regulars plus twenty- two former lettermen. Sparked by Jim Cason, Gene “Red” Knight and Y. A. Tittle, a product of Victoria, Texas, the Tigers have been rated eleventh in the nation by Paul Williamson as compared to thirty-first for the Aggies. However, according to sev eral commentators, including Bill Stern, the Aggies are in a better than ever position to stage a comeback that would put them again up toward the top of the list. The starting linp-up for the Tigers will be Clyde Lindsey and Abner Wimberly at the terminals, Walter “Piggy” Barnes and Fred Land at the tackle posts, Russ Foti and Wren Worley at the guard positions, and Sheldon ‘•'Buck” Ballard at the pivot. The backfield will include Gene “Red” Knight at fullback, Ray Coatesta, left half, Don Sandifer at right wing, and Y. A. Tittle under the T at quarter. The probable starting line-up foi the Aggies will be Howell at left end, Dickel at left tackle, Staut zenberger at left guard, Gary at center, Winkler at right guard, Moncrief at right tackle, Higgins at right end, Hallmark at quar terback, Welch at left half, Goode at right half and Scott at fullback.
