Chest Drive
Short by More
Than $6,000
“I don’t expect the Com
munity Chest to make more
than $7,500 when the com
plete reports are turned in
this week”, said Bennie Zinn,
chairman of the Chest committee.
Only $4,400.53 had been turned
in through Thursday. The goal for
this year was set at $11,019.
The drive will be extended

Zinn. He plans to recanvass col

•city that have fallen below the
tverage contribution per person
<his year.
The Chest Committee will meet
Thursday, Nov. 20, to check the
'complete reports and vote on
whether or not to continue the
“Extending the drive will be a
big job,” Zinn said, “but it is the
only thing we can do if we expect
to reach our goal.”
If the Chest doesn’t reach its
set goal, appropriations of the or
ganizations getting money from
the Chest will have to be cut.
The Chest drive was extended
three weeks last year. The goal
of $9,850 was reached after money

Seniors Table ‘Issue’
Will Meet Monday
To Vole on ‘Board''
Battalion Co-Editor
The senior class tabled a motion last night to do away
with the “board” as a means of physical hazing. They will
vote again at a special called meeting Monday at 5 p.m.
Class members agreed 94-65 to table the motion until
all seniors could be notified of this vote to be taken. Those
favoring to table the motion felt all seniors should have an
opportunity to express their opinion on the matter.
Physical hazing and use of a board is against college
regulations and state laws, but has been evidenced through
physical inspections held by college officials. The board has
been used in defiance of existing laws and regulations.
The seniors said if they stand as a group and eliminate
use of the board, college authorities should be more consider
ate in granting certain demands already presented through
a grievance committee.
Presented by O. C. (Putter) Jar-'
vis, the motion read as follows:
“We, the senior class, see the
problems of the administration, es
pecially hazing, which is deemed
unlawful by the constitution of the
state of Texas. We agree, as a
body, to suspend the use of the
board in the Coi-ps of Cadets be
cause it is unlawful. And if this
agreement is ever violated a com
mittee composed of cadets in the
corps, appointed by the president
of the senior class, will make out
positive and strict disciplinary
measures immediately and justly
to the violator. This program will
function continuously through each
succeeding class.
“Now the class of 1953 has seen
the problems of the Texas A&M
College and has acted upon them.
We respectfully submit a report
of the problems of the Corps of
Cadets and hope the board of di
rectors and the college administra
tors will follow the suggestions

A crowd of about 20,000 is
expected for the Rice game
Saturday, said C. D. Ownby,
business manager of the ath
letic office, yesterday. The
sale of student guest tickets
has been slow. Only about 600
guest tickets have been sold,
he said.
Student guest tickets go off
sale at 5 p. m. today.
No definite deadline has
been set for the sale of stu
dent tickets for the Univer
sity of Texas game, but they
will probably go off sale
Thursday, Nov. 20, he said.
All reserve tickets to the
Texas game have been sold,
but if all of the tickets allot
ted to A&M are not sold, an
other reserve seat section may

Bonfire Construction
Plans Now Underway
Plans are underway for the
building of the annual bonfire
prior to the Turkey Day battle be
tween A&M and Texas, according
to Tom Collins, head yell leader
and chairman of the bonfire com
The actual construction of the
mass of wood will start next Sun
day. Wood will be cleared from
land near here, located four miles
east on highway 6.
Route Marked
“The route to the wood area
will be marked so it will be easy
to find,” said Collins.
Collins estimated that they
would need 36 axes, 78 extra hand
les, 20 dozen wedges, four pounds
staples, four cross-cut saws and
two extra handles.
All gasoline will be purchased
from the service station that do
nates crude oil to soak the wood
before the fire is started.
“This year’s wood will be most
ly small, about six inches in diam
eter, which willl make the fire pile
tightlly packed,” said Collins.
Tractor Available
The Cade Motor Company will
furnish a tractor for snaking logs.
Also the Student Life Committee
allocates $150 to be used in con
struction of the bonfire.
Col. Wilkins, assistant command
ant, asked that organizations not
steal road signs to use in the bon
fire area.
Plans are made to stop hauling
wood in time to get all logs stack
ed on the drill field. Enough tim
ber will be cleared by Wednesday
to start rotation hauling.
“Names of the different bonfire
committees will be announced as
soon as possible,” concluded Col

Ags May Fight
Without Graves
Sports Editor
Coach Ray George of the Aggies has often said he could
hardly afford to lose Ray Graves, quarterback of the Cadets
and total offensive leader in the SWC.
It looks like George and his squad will have to do without
the services of the speedy man-under when they play their
last home game of the 1952 season tomorrow on Kyle Field
against the Rice Owls.
Rice has started a come-back after defeating Arkansas
35-33, and will be trying to take another big step up the SWC
ladder with a win over the Farmers. The Owls will also be
trying to defeat the Cadets for the eighth straight time, since
A&M last win over the Houston club came in 1944.
Halftime activity for the game will be the honoring of
all Aggies who have made the trip to the Olympic games.
Twenty-five thousand fans will watch Darrow Hooper, Bud
dy Davis, Jack Mahan, and Art
Harnden take their bows for ac
complishments i n outstanding
track performances.
Roy Dollar, who has been doing
the punting for the Maroon and
White, will be the most likely man
to take over if Graves can't go
against Rice. Dollar ran quarter
back last week against when the
cadet’s first string quarterback
received a hip injury early in the
third period.
Don Ellis is another possibility
to fill in for the injured Graves.
Ellis has been running halfback
during the year, but Coach George
might call on him to run the Split-
T and Straight-T formation for
the Aggies.
Either May Go
Both men have been working out
this week at the position, and
either may get the nod to jump in
to the shoes of the SWC’s lead
ing quarterback.
Dollar will be playing his last
home game for A&M, as will
Graves if he gets into the game.
Other graduating seniors who
will step onto Kyle Field in the
Maroon and White uniform for
the last time will be All-Ameri
ca Jack Little, defensive tackle,
Raymond Haas, halfback, and A1
Langford, another tackle.
Marshall Rush, who has turned
in some of the finest defensive
work of the year will join the
group. Bobby Dixon, offensive
tackle for the Cadets will also be
out to win his last home tilt.
Others who are graduating this
year are Don Moore, W. G. (Ox)
