-fir-' "v * f |'~Y Bears Seeking To] Notch Grid Coach ■ii 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 lease.” 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.” NOTICE 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.

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. .1 a . / t.*- ,. - r fir 1 . This Advertisement Written and Paid for JACK A.
