Harper Carries Gold Dust, Too By RONNIE GREATHOUSE Battalion Sports Staff If precedent is followed, some of the gold dust that Charles (Smoky) Harper carries in his liniment bottles should rub off on A&M’s football teams. Harper, A&M’s new trainer, ar rived here Sunday night. The 55- year-old native Georgian (you can tell it by his accent) comes here after four years at Kentucky. Success seems to be a habit with the football teams that Harper has taken care of. Four have played in bowl games, and three have won the Ncav Year’s Day classic in Avhich they appeared. Three teams have won championships, and at least SIX of his players have been chosen on all-America selections. Yesterday ivhen The Battal ion’s photographer went to take his picture, Harper said, “Wait until I put on my Texas Aggie jacket—I’m an Aggie now.” “I am very much impressed with the spirit and the friendly people here,” said Harper. “I’m glad to come to A&M.” His first contact with the Aggies came in 1952, when the Wildcats outscored the Aggies, 10-7, on Kyle field. “In 1952 I was really impressed with the student body’s spirit,” he said. “This spirit is one reason we came to A&M.” While Harper Avas at Alabama, the Crimson Tide won the 1945 and 46 Rose Bowl games. Kentucky won the 51 Sugar Bowl and the ’52 Cotton Bowl games Avhile Har per was there. The list of players that Harper has administered to reads like a list of football’s Who’s Who— Vito (Babe) Parilli, Harry Gil mer, Bob Gain, Doug Moseley, Vaughan Mancha and Steve Mei- linger. All were all-Americas. Parilli and Gilmer rewrote the passing record books. Gain, Mose ley and Mancha were among the I outstanding linemen of the nation during their playing days. Mei- linger was the one-man team of | the ’52 and ’53 Kentucky eleA^ens. Harper considers the unbeaten I 1950 Wildcat team which rolled) oA r er Oklahoma in the ’51 Sugar Bowl the best he has ever trained. I He first met Paul (Bear) Bryant, the neAv Aggie head football coach and athletic director, at Vanderbilt in 1940. Bryant then Avas an as sistant coach. Starting his 28th year as a train er, Harper was employed at six other schools before coming here. He started in 1926 at Clemson and moved to Vanderbilt, where he was employed three different times, | Florida, Alabama, UCLA and Ken-| tucky. Harper is a 1923 graduate < Mercer college at Macon, Ga., wheroj he earned four letters each in base-| ball and basketball, Mercer thenj avus an all-male college. DYERS'FUR STORAGE HATTERS 210 S. Main Bryan Pho. 2-1584 NAME: I N THE still of the night—high above a sleeping American city—an unidentified aircraft is spotted. In a matter of seconds a lightning-like jet interceptor takes to the air. Unerringly, with an Aircraft Observer showing the way, the Air Force F-94 Night Fighter speeds to intercept the stranger. The Aircraft Observer is the man behind the pilot —the officer who keeps America's planes flying on course and on target. Without him the Air Force couldn’t do its job. What is the Aircraft Observer? He's a Radar Officer . . . employing an all seeing eye that penetrates where human sight fails. He’s an Aircraft Performance Engineer Officer ... know ing everything there is to know about his plane . . . keeping it fit for the skies and ready for action. He’s a Navigation Officer . . . plotting his plane’s course . . . with an entire crew depending on him for a safe flight. He’s a Bombardment Officer ... in full control of the plane over the target area . . . the Air Force Officer who “lowers the boom” on the enemy. What the Aircraft Observer gets He earns over 55,000 a year. His silver Aircraft Observer wings give him prestige and distinction, and he wears the bars of an Air Force Lieutenant. They mark him as the eyes, ears, and brains of America's Number One flying team. What it takes to be an Aircraft Observer The Aircraft Observer must be sound of limb, keen of mind, and above all, must have the determination to be the best. To qualify as an Aircraft Observer you must be single, between 19 and 261/2 years old, and a high school graduate. However, it will be better for you and the Air Force if you stay in college and graduate before you apply. Then you, too, can be one of the best ... as an Aircraft Observer.
