Cadets May Win
Or Lose Says AB
New York, Oct. 18—(AP)—California is the No. 1 team
in the country. Under the Astute Lynn (Pappy) Waldorf,
the Golden Bears haven’t lost a regular season game in four
years, have a run of 38 straight excluding bowl engagements.
A man who would pick against them should be measured
for a straight jacket. Okay. Where’s the tape and scissors?
We predict the end of Pappy’s string and also see strong
upset possibilities facing two other top-ranking elevens,
Tennessee and Texas A&M.
Here Goes the Pickin’s
Southern California over California: The Trojans have a good but
not a great team. California is loaded with power. But the Trojans
will be afire with desire to avenge past indignitaries.
Tennessee over Alabama: The Volunteers are unbeaten and un
tied. Alabama has lost three. But forget the records in this one. The
Crimson tide will be more than a drunk of water.
Texas A&M over Texas Christian: Another game in which com
parative scores can be tossed out the window. We’ll string with the
Aggies but wouldn’t faint if it went the other way.
Texas over Arkansas: The Longhorns win their fifth straight but
the Razorbacks have a tough hide. Won’t be easy.
Michigan state over Penn State:
The Spartans have been winning The fi hti Irish boimce back

On defense, the Fish, although

Also in on many tackles were
Fred Broussard of Dequincy,

In the secondary Joe Boring

Line Looks Weak
The Maroon and White line look
ed very weak at times, especially
in the early stages of the contest,
but seemed to grow stronger as
the game progressed.
The same could be said for the
Fish offensive backfield. During

seemed to clik every time while the
Fish backs couldn’t seem to hang
on to the ball, fumbling several

scored two touchdowns and Kach

A&M Kicks Off
A&M kicked off to the Wogs
who failed to move on their first
try on the attack.
After stalling the Fish offense
the Wogs directed by Roland
Slinkscale, All - State, 165-pound
scatback from Fort Worth, travel
ed from their own 35 to break the
scoring ice. The scoring play was
a pass from Clinkscale to Weldon
Dacus for 40 yards.
Clinkscale a workhorse was rem-
inscent of Lindy Berry of T. C. U.
who was the original workhorse.
Clinkscale carried the pigskin al
most every time and gained all
but 30 yards of the Wogs yardage
The try for the extra point by
the Wogs was no good and that
was all the^scoring for the first
qaurter, which ended up Wogs 6
and the Aggie Fish 0.
Early in the second period W. C.
O’Neal playing guard for the Wogs
intercepted Hennig’s pass and ran
to the cadets 15 yard line. On the
next play Clinkscale swept around
his own right end to go over stand
ing up to put the Wogs out in front
by 12 points. The try for extra
point was no good and the score
remained Wogs 12 A&M 0.
On the first play from scrim
mage after the kickoff, Kachtik
started on his own 38 yard line
and ran all the way for the first
Fish score going over standing up.
Lyman Preston of Austin convert
ed to put the cadets back in the
game 7 to 12.
Richard Vick, left halfback from
Beaumont, kicked the ball to Clink
scale on his own 5 yard line, he
almost broke away carrying the
hoghide all the way to the Aggie
Terry Herman of Gainesville
relieved Clinkscale and led the way
to paydirt hitting Dacus in the end
zone to go out in front 18 to 7.
David Finney finally split the up
rights for the Wogs making the
score 19 for the Wogs and 7 for
the Fish as the gun signalled the
end of the first half.
T. C. U. Freshmen kicked off to
the A&M Fish to start the second
half of play and Ken Langford

EAST MEETS BEST
IH NEW RELAY EVENT
You’ve heard of the Penn Relays. But
have you ever heard of a relay where the
hurdles are mountains, the average stride
is thirty miles, and the track stretches
coast to coast?
It’s the Bell System’s Ntadio-Nleiau
and it brings East and West together in
one of the most important events in the
history of comnumications.
Telephone construction crews have just
recently completed the coast-to-coast
iCiaeleo system. Today, Long
Distance calls ride on radio microwaves,.
beamed through the air from tower to
tower. And, for the first time, television
programs have been flashed from coast
The new system supplements the thou
sands of miles of wire cable that already
tie the nation together. It helps make
America’s vast communications network
even stronger and more flexible. And it
could hardly happen at a belter time. The
demands of defense are heavy and urgent.
HOW WORKS. Microwaves travel in a straight line. So relay
towers are usually built on hilltops and spaced about thirty miles apart. Just as a
runner picks up the baton from another runner; so each tower picks up microwaves
from its neighbor, and with complex electronic equipment amplifies and focuses
them like a searchlight, then beams them accurately at the next tower. And hun
dreds of Long Distance calls ride the beam at the same time.
