Bears Seeking To]
Notch Grid Coach
Th* Baylor University a
i committee fanned out Sat
seeking' a new football coach
i replace Bob Woodruff, who quit
'to g<j to Florida at ^5,000 more
a year.
Dr. W. R. White, president of
Baylor, said each member was in
structed to make contacts deemed
advisable but not to make any
commitments. A meeting probably
will be held next Friday at which
time all ideasj on the subject will
be pooled.
“We are gqing after the best
coach in the land," Doctor White
said. “And we are going to work
to hold together everything that
has been accomplished in our re
building of ‘the athletic program
in the past few years under Coach
Woodruff.”' ' . ' .
• Doctor White had no prospec
tive coaches in mind but when
the name of Ray] Morrison, now at
Austin College / was mentioned,
said: “I am afraid he is. tied up
where he is and could not be ob
tained.” Doctor White agreed that
Morrison, former coach at South
ern Methodist, Vanderbilt and
i. Temple, was the type man Baylor
would like to have. r
' * Bajitor was moving up in na-
tionulTpJotbaU as Woodruff step
ped out Me took over a team
that had won only one game in
104d and In three years, time had
It fighting for the Southwest Con-
. ferance championship. Last sea
son Baylor won eight games and
lost two. '
Asked for Relesse
Woodruff* who recently figured
.* in an open controversy with Ralph
Wolf, tho athletic director, causing
j hath to resign but'with a subse
quent return of Woodruff as coach
when Wolf stepped down to. be
stadium director, asked tho ath
letic committee Friday night to
release him from his five-year
/ contract at $12000 a year.
At Florjda, where he becomes
coach and athletic director, Wood
ruff will receive $17,000 a year
and has a seven-year contract.
He will make more than the gov
ernor of Florida.
White said he thought
lor situation had been set-
hat Woodruff had been giv
en everything he had ask '
Woodruff called me
days ago that Florida wanted him
to come and see them but he
didn’t indicate he planned to leave
Baylor, in fact requested funds to
attend the National Collegiate
Athletic Association convention to
represent us,” Doctor White said.
“Last night he talked to me three
times about the matter, insisting
that the athletic, committee release
him. I polled the committee and
they agreed to give khn his
Meanwhile, Jim Crow, Who has
been an assistant coach at - Bay
lor for more than quarter of a
century, is serving as athletic di
rector and will do so i until
athletic director is narajad. Wolf,
who is executive vice-president and
general manager of the Baylor
Stadium Corporation, is' busy ob
taining funds for the new stadium
on which work already has start
ed. Excavating for the Structure
costing $1,500,000 and seating 46,-
000, is well under wayj
"I had a talk with; the mem
bers of the athletic stpff," Doctor
White said, “and told them to con
tinue in their duties as if noth
ing had happened. They are going
ahead contacting athletes. 1 We aro
not going to let down here.”
Students must show ID cards
along with student activity
cards in order to get in A&M
basketball games. Therp ik no
limit on student attendance, and
alphabetical system will not be
used as in ] the past. Admission
is strictly on a “first ccime, first
serve” basis. I L

Who Are Concerned In
the Operation of
This theatre is located on the Campus of A&M
College for the purpose of furnishing relaxation
and entertainment to the students of the college.
Under the present operating conditions of this
thCMitre, It is operated on a commercial bndis such
us picture policy and admission prices.
, : ■ ' 'A*
This theatre has a Jow operating cost, utilities,
building, maintenance and etc. are furnished by
the State of Texas — only the managers salary,
Operators salary and a few incidentals come out
of the profit from the theatre operation and con-
' cession business/ I , j | i
Most of the film for this theatre is bought on a
^percentage basis, ranging from 25% to 35%.. A
few of its little pictures are bought through a
rental of $12.50 to $50. Short subjects cost are
$2.00 to $5.00 ... these prices are for the number
of days the picture runs—one, two, or three.
There is no reason why this theatre pould not
operate for students of the college for a low id-
mission of 10c and at the end of every week show
a profit of more moneys than under the present
policy of operation, and at the same time afford-
H ing every student a great saying in his theatre
‘ ! fulmission, and affording more students this tjpe
of entertainment, than are now v attending
the shows on account of the high admission price.
/ : ■' ■. *. * ' r t- •, j : i
The film companies would continue, to serve
Guioti Hall under the same terms that they are
now serving them, and the students would con-
j tinue to see the same type of movies they ure
r J now seeing. At the same time they would be
eliminating the commercial angle under wh ch
Guion Hall is now operating.
