A&M and TU ended their 58th gridiron battle on Kyle
Field Thursday with a game that will long be remembered.
The Cadets overran a favored Longhorn squad to win 22-21,
a great victory for 19 departing Aggie seniors.
Combining efforts of all Cadets playing 60-minute ball
enabled the Aggies to overcome a Texas 14-7 lead and
trounce the Longhorns for the first time since 1939.
It was the El Campo Ghost, Glenn Lippman scampering
all over the field never scoring but rolling up 173 yards in
19 carries to lead the offensive punch.
Yale Lary, Darrow Hooper, Buddy Shaeffer, Dick Gar-
demal, and Johnny Salyer showed the way with their sparkl
ing offensive and defensive play.
Dick Gardemal, Cadet quarterback, engineered the whole
attack, pulling some surprise quarterback sneaks that always
came at the right time for necessary yardage. Gardemal
mixed his plays well and kept the TU defense guessing all
Dick, who has been sharing duties with Ray Graves all
season, had the game all to himself and made the most of it.
He completed four out of eight passes for 70 yards, one a
touchdown pass to Yale Lary.
Perfect Weather
Playing in perfect football weather, the Aggies started
right from the first as if they meant to really win by driving
from their own 36 deep into Texas territory.
Billy Tidwell, Cadet halfback, took the ball on the TU
14-yard line, started to his left; was momentarily caught
behind the line of scrimmage; reversed his field and went,
all the way for the score. Dick Gardemal and Glenn Lippman
threw key blocks that paved the way for the onrushing
Darrow Hooper added the extra point and the Aggies
led 7-0 with just a little more than four minutes gone in
the game.
Texas Scores
Before the Cadet fans had time to stop yelling, Dick
Ochoa, TU fullback, broke through right tackle and lateraled
to Gib Dawson on his own 40-yard line. Dawson went the
rest of the distance untouched to put the University lads
back in the game. .
June Davis kicked the PAT and the score was all tied
up, 7-7.
Texas’ hard-running ground game started rolling late
in the second quarter and was climaxed when Dick Ochoa,
keeping the ball this time, scored from the one-yard line.
The half ended with the Cadets trailing the Austin boys
14-7. The last half told a different story with the Aggies
putting on a show never seen by the two clubs in the history
of their rivalry.
A&M received the kick-off and started a series of downs
on their own 15. Gardemal kept the ball on a surprise
bootleg and scooted for 17 yards through the stunned Steers.

►Red Truce Plan
Allies Object
I Munsan, Korea, Dec. 4—i/P>—
fCommunist negotiators insisted to
-day on four limitations to super-
j vision of a truce in Korea. The
f Allies objected to all four.
The Reds may have other re-
| strictions- the Allies don’t like. But
* these four came out in response to
lengthy questioning by United Na
tions delegates in a newly created
• The Reds would be free to
build air fields during an armistice.
So would the U.N. command. Bqt
the Allies have plenty and the
Reds haven’t a single usable field
in Korea.
• Neutral inspection would be
limited strictly to ports of entry.
The Allies want inspection teams
Tree to go anywhere in Korea.
• A ban on troop rotation. That
bould mean an end to American
Veterans coming home after a year
of service.
• No interference with or in
spection of any reconstruction in
1 Korea. Communist newsmen at
[ Panmunjom said much construc-
| tion work in North Korea is un
derground and the Reds don’t want
t the Allies to know where if is.
The new subcommittee—two men
from each side—was created today
in an effort to beat a Dec. 27
deadline. A previous subcommittee
drew a cease-fire line across the
front to become effective if an ar
mistice is signed by Dec. 27. That
first subcommittee took more than
three months.
Tries Speed-up
Vice-Adm. C. Turner Joy, head
of the five-man U.N. command
negotiating team, tried to get more
speed into negotiations. He pro
posed another subcommittee be ere-

Ba be Migh t be Reason Aggies
Ran Over Steers Thursday
Soothsayers might say there were a lot of things that
contributed to the Aggies winning the Turkey Day Game.
Some might say it was the biggest bonfire in recent history.
Others say it was just luck.
But the desk clerk in the MSG thinks he has the real
cause. He is Babe Lopez.
Babe has been for the college for the past 27 years.
Most of this time was spent in the old Aggieland Inn.
All during the time he was working for the college, he
never saw an A&M football game. It always worked out that
the desk clerk was on duty Saturday afternoon or night.
This week, Chris Gent, assistant to the director, decided
to give Babe a chance. He told Babe to go to the game.
Babe went. The Aggies won.
You name it. He might have been the good luck piece the
Aggie squad needed when they went out on the field.
So when the soothsayers get together, here is another
story for them to consider when they figure out why and how
A&M broke the 11 year old Jinx.

His Father
Knows Best?

the following brite:
It seems there was a father
who had become disgusted with
the over-emphasis on football,
and resolved to send his son to
a school that didn’t have a foot
ball team at all.
The youngster was duly en

Jack Little
Look Magazine All-American Offensive Tackle
Coaches Select
Jack Little, A&M’s mighty 220 pound tackle, was named
today to Look Magazine’s All-American offensive team by
sportswriter Grantland Rice and the Football Writers Asso
ciation of America.
Little was among four players from the Southwest Con
ference to make Look’s mythical team for 1951. Others se
lected from the Southwest were End Stan Williams and Quar
terback Larry Isbell of Baylor, and Halfback Bobby Dillon on
the defense.
Little had already received honors from the AP and UP
sportswriters for all-conference pickings. Colliers magazine
also announced him to their regional All-American team from
■♦the Southwest this week.
Playing on the offense for the
Aggies most of the time, Little was
also the man who stayed on the
field many times when offensive
and defensive platoons were
switching places.
Aggie Coach Ray George said
about him after the Oklahoma Uni
versity game, which A&M won
14-7, “Chalk up one perfect per
formance for Jack Little, a junior
performer or should we say a pro
on a varsity eleven.”
Little, Lary, Meyer Named
To All-Conference Teams
Dallas, Dec. 4—OP)—Jack Little,
Yale Lary and Hugh Meyer were
named for the 1951 All Southwest
Conference Team. They were se
lected by the coaches of the seven
conference schools.
It is an unusual team in many
respects—one man made a posi
tion on both offensive and defen
sive platoons and brothers—the
Forestei's of Southern Methodist—
each got a place.
Unanimous Choice
Unanimous choices were Gib
Dawson and Bobby Dillon, Texas
halfbacks, and Bill Athey, Baylor
guard. However, Howton got the
most votes, being picked for either
offense or defense on every ballot
and being named for both on some.
Dawson was picked for offense
only and Dillon and Athey for de
Dick Hightower, Southero Meth
odist center, got only one vote
fewer than Howton, being named
•for both platoons but not getting
enough votes for offense. Little,
Texas A&M tackle,, received the
full seven votes—the seven South
west Conference coaches picked the
teams—but his ballots were dis
tributed between offense and de
fense. Bob Griffin of Arkansas was
picked for both tackle, center and
linebacker, ending up at tackle.

Men Deferred
From Draft
Washington — A memoran

(ROTC) units was signed Thurs
day by Anna Rosenberg, assist
ant Secretary of Defense.
Aides of Mrs. Rosenberg said

was somewhat lower than the
number enrolled in the Army
ROTC units. This allowed draft
boards to take a number of men
who were in the units.
Since these training units are
the army’s major source of offi
cers, it requested the defense sec
retary to change the quotas.
Mrs. Rosenberg’s memorandum
said that 53,000 men could be de
ferred in the first year basic ROTC
class, 39,000 in the second year
basic, 19,500 in the first year ad
vanced class and 18,000 in the sec
ond year advanced. The four
groupings correspond roughly to
the four college classes.
The present enrollment in the
last three groups is slightly lower
than the quotas Mrs. Rosenberg
To get into an Army ROTC unit
all a student has to do is sign up
when he enters college. Many col
leges require some ROTC training
for graduation.
Actually, Mrs. Rosenberg’s me
morandum allows only an addition
al 3,700 deferments more than the
army’s previous quota. But it
shifts the various class quotas
by 12,000 and 5,000 respectively,
