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

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

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.

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
