Yell Leaders and students alike have been using all kinds ot meth ods to get the so-called two percenters to attend the yell practices the Annex, in their efforts, they have omitted one!little detail, detail, which makes all efforts worthless unless it is correctet , is this attendance of the Freshman Regiment If a poll was taken every week and answer the question, it could probably •percent of the. freshman nt the Annex games. -We realize that many of the at football games each Freshman would honestly be found that as man/ as 30 aren’t attending home football students at the Annex don’t l It k- I care much f6r football and would rather do other things wh consider more important. But I ask you, what is more importanjt than going into College Station and staiding with the Twelfth Man (as a full fledged member) to help the fighting.Aggie team to a victory? Certainly anyone should regret nissing the spectacular playinj , on the part of the Aggies last Saturtay against SMU. Throughout the game, however, the Twelfth Man was there, backing the team on tq a near victory over the highly rated, Mustangs. ] Many reasons have been attribute 1 toward the absence c f fn men at thesq'games, but very few coi ld be excusable and those dents who offer them know this to be a fact. One person in particular said that he had to study, and ve admit, he spent the entire game time and much after that in the study halls. But when night came, he was o re of the many boys thjat fourjd time to go out and have a good time until mid-night. Another freshman made a statement that should not cone fro^n the lips of any Agg!e> whether he mei nt it or not. To quote haven't been to a single: XAM game th s year and what's morp I don intend to go to one. In eur estlmatloi, there is ft boy that be straightened up Just a little. Probably the majority of studenti that miss the football do so because they are afraid they might receive a little encouragemeljit from upperclassmen to yell. We will admit that they see to It that show-proper Enthusiasm as far as ye ling is concerned, but after not much more is asked of the Twelfth Man. The football season Is nearly ovftr. The only remaining gamfe; are going to be gone before we know it. School will be d Saturday in order that students of AifeM can attend the gajne t played with Rice in Houston. As a rjesult, freshmen are plannln take advantage of this extra holiday ii order to go home( those don’t live in or near Houston) or do sone other things. Long 1 nes 1 prevailed almost all week in Col. R. L. MelCher’s office with studen asking'for permission to go places other than Houston. If this is the kind of spirit the class of ’53 is going to sponsqr* we look fob A&M to loose one of its oldest and most treasured tra ditions, the Twelfth Man.

Close Scores Set ’Mural Competition v r BY jLeBLANC and SCHMIDT Intramural -play last week saw more spirited rivalries aroused be tween rthe teams as the races be gan to take shape.

Lay’s passes led the way back for the band. The score came when Buckholt made a fine catch of a Lay pass. Hanna converted to add the finishing touches. Staffer’s running for Fit. 11 was especially creditable. He was back ed by Highsmith, Duke, Holmes, Nicholas, Skein, and Bridges.
