Molten Lava Mows Toward Sicilian Village Mt. Etna, Sicily, Nov. 28— —A molten lava flow 650 feet wide from restless Mt. Etna threatened half a dozen villages on the northeastern slopes of the 1(1,741-foot hijrh mountain yesterday. The preat high cone of Etna in Sicily’s eastern coastal belt burst into flames and smoke last night, bringing panic to the sur rounding countryside. A series of heavy earth tremors accompanied the volcano’s eruption. Residents of Catania feared the eruption would be worse than the last big burst of lava, ash and smoke from Etna in December, 11140. Authorities estimated the creep ing flow would reach the village of Fornazza about midnight. For- nassa’s l,. r )00 inhabitants gather ed their belongings in preparation for quick flight. The lava already had burned off a grove of chestnut trees in its slow trek toward the sea. Shortly after the volcano erupted, lava was belching from six- separate mouths below the rim of the cra ter.

Company commanders and civilian dorm masters could ask for donations in their units and dormitories tonight and to morrow.

Like Gavdemal, six of Tompicin’s passes have struck for I Ds. and all of his passes have gained 787 yards - for the Long horns. First in (he passing game is Fred Di nners of SMU, who has fossed 178 times,, completed MW and had nine intercepted for a completion of .579. Nine of Ben ners passes have scored, and he has netted 1,424 yards through the air for SMU. Yale Lary is in the No. 2 spot in the punting division. He has punted 50 times for 1908 yards and an average of "9.4. Lary leads the line of punt returners in the SWG \vi(h 217 yards in nine returns and an average of Porter 5(h Top Punter Lilly Porter of Texas is fifth in the punting division. He has punted the pigskin 46 times for 1,292 and an average of 45.9 yards per kick. Bobby Dillon is the leading punt returner for TU, but he has had Golf Course — (Continued from Page 4) course and supervised its construc tion. His competence as a designer and builder is shown in the North- wood Country Club in Dallas, which is the newest and often call ed the finest course in the Dallas area. Added to this, he has redone the greens of Dallas Country Club and Rivererest in Fort Worth and reworked layouts at Lakewood in Dallas and Colonial in Fort Worth. Midland, Odessa, Alice, McKin ney and Stcphenville golfers will all vouch for Plummer’s ability in golf course design and construc tion. Completely Modern Having all modern designs in corporated, the A&M course boasts an underground water system that stretches over the entire length of the course. Also all the rough has been dug so that ditches up to three feet deep with grass growing over them line each fairway. A&M was fortunate to get Clyde Harrison as the greens keeper. Harrison, who was recently with the Glen Garden Country Club of Fort Worth, is well known throughout the state for his ability to keep greens in tip-top shape. Club House Also For a dub house, a masonry structure adjoining the course is currently being remodeled. It will contain a golf shop, along with a lounge for the arm-chair golfers. Joe Fagen, a member of the A&M staff and an ex-student, will serve as pro-manager of the course. Fagen is a registered member of the PGA. Members of the golf course ad visory committee are Fagen, James B. Harvey, ’22, Charlie K. Leigh ton, ’42, Dr. Robert F. White of the Landscape Arts Department, Dr. R. C. Potts of the Agronomy Department, Dr. Jack Miller of the Animal Husbandry Department, A. F. DeWerth, and Plummer. —Beat TU— to he content to follow Lary. Dil- : Ion is in second place in this div ision with 2-17 yards in 11 at- I tempts, and has an average of 1 22.4. Aithough he does not pass, Bob \ Smith is in second place in total .Tfense depai tment ami his aver age per try is still better than i anyone ri-e in the conference. Gil- 1 bert Bartosh is first with a 1,516 ; yard total. Andy Hillhouse, the 6’ 4”, 225 lh, end of the Aggies, is the fifth leading pass receiver in the confer- ! once. He has caught 18 passes for 451 yards and six touchdowns to be ! the highest scoring end in the con- : feronce. Ben Proctor, Texas end, follows i Andy with 18 catches for 444 yards : and four TDs. Tom Stolhandske, also of TU, is number ten in this department. He has caught 16 passes for 222 yards and one touchdown. But it is in the leading scorers divi.-ion that A&M really shines. Out of the first ten scorers in the SWC, the Aggies have five men. Smith leads the line with 14 touchdowns and 84 points. Next on the Aggie lineup comes Andy hillhouse, Yale Lary, and Bill Tid well. Each of these teammates have crossed pay dirt six times for 36 points each. Then comes Harrow Hooper with 34 conver sions for 34 points. Second loading scorer in the con- forence is Kyle Rote, who has made 12 TDs and 72 points for SMU, while in third place is By ron Townsend who has 11 trips to the promised land for 66 points. By these simple statistics the many thousands of partisan fans can see that Coach Hairy Stiteler’s Aggies, in their best year of foot ball since the turn of the decade, have done much better than the expected “50-50 in 1950.” Beat TU Mil CofG— (Continued from Page 1) tin Hotel to the Stadium.
