Battalion SPORTS THUAS., NOV. 10, 1949Page 5 The sound of battle will resou tomorrow amid the otherwise peace ful observance of Armistice Day as the Fish gridders launch an at tack on the Rice Slimes at 2 p. m. in Houston. The Slimes were defeated by a strong TU Shorthorn squad, but are still rated high and will be favored in tHe contest. However, we feel, for a dissenting vote, that the Ags are plenty potent. And if they are high, and the breaks are even, there is not a team in the race that is better. True, the two losses to Baylor and TCU would seem to refute this conjecture, but both games could have gode either way and were not decided until the very last in both clashes. Some Men Missing The Fish have lost some key players, but the squad as a whole has gained experience and the coaches have had time to observe each man and pick the most effec tive performers. The line, weakened by'the loss Reese, and Pirotjna, is big and and the men in the forward slots want to play.

Coach Art Adamson is starting his fifteenth season as water polo coach, during which time his squad has- suffered only two defeats at the hinds of other college teams, Back in 1940 the University of Illinois beat the Aggies by a slim margin. A national champion Northwestern team outacored the Farmers in a rough and tough game in ’38. These are the only two col legiate teams to whom the Cadets have fallen in the history of water polb at this institution. Last year was the first time that *| the Southwest Conference had a real league set up, and even then it wasn’t an official confer ence sport. This year there seems to be some trouble as far, as Texas University is concerned, as to whom is eligi ble to compete in the sport. Texas’ Coach Tex Robertson, it seems, wants to use Bob Tarleton, con- ference backstroke champion in 1938 on his aggregation, as well as a ^few other graduate students. 1 Instead of the University of Tex as Water,Polo team the Aggies will complete against a team known as up the Texas Aquatic Club but made up of* graduate students as well as undergraduate at T. U. It seems that Tex Robertson to ants to beat the Aggies so bad that he is willing to rob some of his talent from his TU team of eleven years ago. The teasips have never defeated an Aggie waterpolo team and since the change, they probably never will. The Aggies, as present, have two games scheduled, both of them be ing with the Austin group. The first game is to be played in Aus tin November 17th. and the - re maining tilt will be played here November 22hd. There is a possibility that the Ag water ball boys will compete in St. Louis against Washington University of that town. Coach Art Adamson shys that he will be glad to schedule that game if others also can be arranged. Of the seven starters, only twor are seniors, the rest being fnadc up of last year’s freshman team. As it stands now, Fleming, Ka- row, Adamson, McKinsie, Corn- stock, Ellis, and Sargent will get the starting nod.
