Student’s Wives Urged
To Attend Yell Practice
Battalion Women’s Editor
Girls, girls! Where’s your
spirit? At the All-College Night
yell practice Monday night, the
feminine members of this fair
campus were conscicious by their
Evidently, only a handful of
the student wives and staff mem
bers of Aggieland realize that
All-College night means ALL
College, and that the “Twelfth
Man” can also mean a very
spirited lady. Turn out for yell
practices, and learn the Aggie
songs and yells. This is our
school, too, so let’s not sit home
and yell at the kids when we
can be at The Grove yelling for
A&M. (It’s less exhausting and
lots more fun.)
Mrs. Andrew Salis and her two
children left last week for Ft.

Lafayette, Ind. where they sank
Purdue 20-6 and Donn Moomaw,
the outstanding tackle on the
Pacific Coast, won Lineman of the
Week laurels for his play against
the Boilermakers.
Battered By California
Returning to the West Coast, the
Uclans knocked over Oregon State
20-13 only to be battered 34-0 the
following week by the California
Golden Bears.
In the final game of the season,
UCLA walloped the Trojans of
USC, 39-0. This win strengthened
their hold on third place in the
Pacific Coast Conference and they
wound up conference play with
five wins and two losses.
The Aggies had a 6-4 record for
full season and a 3-3 record for
play in the SWC.
Friday night’s battle should tell
the tale as far as Aggie followers
are concerned for A&M will be
hard to beat if they win this con
test or so some of the Aggies play
ers think.

selor for Dormitory 17.

Mail Boxes Up
Before Service
Can Commence
Two conditions required by
the federal government to
commence house - to - house
mail delivery in College Sta
tion remain unfilled.
Several months ’ ago the City
sent questionnaires to all utility
subscribers in College Station in
quiring if they were in favor of
free mail delivery. Approximately
80 percent replied in favor of the
measure, according to Raymond
Rogers, city manager.
Yet citizens have not cooperated
with the City by erecting house
numbers and mail boxes, Joe Sor
rels, president of the Chamber of
Commerce has been informed.
Dr. T. O. Walton, post master of
College Station, has said these
two conditions must he complied
with before he can inform the
Federal Post Office Department
that College Station is ready for
the service to begin.
Regarding the mail boxes which
must be erected, no special type
of box is required. The only spec
ification is that it be on the out
side of the house and about three
feet above the ground.
Persons who do not know their
house number may obtain that in
formation by phoning City Hall at
4-7004, Rogers said.
At the weekly luncheon of the
Kiwanis Club yesterday, the Board
of Directors decided to initiate a
community project by making a
survey for the City of the houses
in College Station which have not
been numbered and do not have
mail boxes.
House-to-house mail delivery
will not include the wooded area
north of Francis Drive in College
Hills, Sorrels said. The delivery in
College Hills will be mounted, pro
bably in automobiles, he added.
Theater of Operations, and served

While Capt. Byrd was stationed
in the states, Mrs. Byrd traveled
from post to post with him and
their daughter Patsy, who is now
eleven. They lived in Maryland,
Washington, D. C., and Columbia,
S. C. where “Chic”, their son, was
born 8 years ago.
When Capt. Byrd was discharged
from the Army, they moved to
Nacogdoches, where Byrd was field
manager for Carnation Company.
Later the Byrd’s bought a dairy
at Shady Grove, then Byrd taught
Agriculture in the Veteran’s pro
gram in Nacogdoches.
It was when her husband as
sumed the same position in Denton
that Mrs. Byrd decided that keep
ing house and raising two children
wasn’t enough to keep her busy,
and took a degree from North
Texas State College.
While attending college, Mrs.
Byrd belonged to the Homemaking
Society, Phi Upsilon, Omicron, pro
fessional club; Ellen H. Richards
Club, House and Family Club,
Alpha Chi, and the Education Hon
or Society.
Mrs. Byrd, as homemaking
teacher, will be in charge of mak
ing up the menu for, the cafeteria
at Consolidated which is scheduled
to open Jan. 1. She will be assisted
by the elementary teachers, and
will receive suggestions from all
the teachers.

Uniform Date
Still Not Decided
No definite date has yet been set
for the Cadet Corps to be officially
in uniform, Lt. Col. Marion P. Bow
den, assistant commandant, said
Tuesday afternoon.
So far, all uniforms have not
been issued cadets and others who
have received clothing need altera
tions and exchanges made before
the entire corps can be in uniform.
Issuing of uniforms and exchanges
should be completed sometime next
week, Col. Bowden said.
ie Team
Ray George
Lacks Depth
Tells Kiwanis
“This is an age of specialization
in football,” Ray George, head
football coach at A&M, told mem
bers and guests of the Kiwanis
Club at their regular weekly lunch
eon in the MSC yesterday.
“In my time, a player had to be
able to play offensive as well as de
fensive ball,” the coach illustrated.
However, the change has made
football a better and faster game,
he added.
Concerning the Aggies’ 1951
chances, the coach remained mum,
if hot pessimistic. The team is
lacking in depth in the line, George
Meyer Only Center
“Hugh Meyer is the only exper
ienced offensive center we have,”
he said, “and should he get hurt,
the team would be in trouble.”
Jim Fowler is the best relief
prospect Meyer has, George said,
but he played no offense last year.
The only other center is Cooper
Robins, not an offensive center.
Concerning the game Friday
night with UCLA, George said the
team and coaching staff were in
high spirits and ready to go. Ap
proximately 43 boys will make the
trip to Los Angeles, of which about
28 are expected to see action.
The team will not be handicap
ped with injuries in Friday’s game,
the coach said. Although Smith
received a minor elbow injury
earlier in the week, he will play
Friday night.
In addition to the address by
George, Humble Oil and Refining
Company’s film “Football High
lights of 1950” was shown. Ralph
Rogers was master of ceremonies.
At a board of director’s meeting
following the lunch, Michael V.
Krenintsky, assistant librarian at
A&M was invited into the club.
Guests at the luncheon included
Dr. I. M. Atkins of Denton, R. E.
Jones of Austin, Charles Orr, ham, Frank McFarland, Bob Bar-
Krenintsky, H. C. “Dutch” Dilling- low, and George Johnston.
