Besides his hardwoods activity, he is covering the AAM games I for The Battalion. With due apologies to W. K. Colville and The j Commentator, The Batt sports editors have identified Williams’ stories from the Atlantic seaboard with the byline, “Glenn Wil liams, Special Eastern Correspondent,” and those from the Missouri Valley with “Mouse Williams, Special Midwestern Correspondent.” Of course, Glenn doesn’t know about this yet, but we’re sure ( ?) he won’t mind—’cause we plan to use his Pacific Coast trip stories with a byline of “G.

The reason: The Aggies from the Sooner state staged an amaz ing demonstration of expert ball handling, deadly shooting and an impenetrable defense in downing the Texas cadets 55-34 before a near-capacity crowd in Gallagher Hall. Oklahoma’s Cowboys had things going their way from the opening whistle until the final horn. They tallied five points before Jewell McDowell’s free pitch broke the ice for the visitors.
