Thursday, October 20, 1955 THE BATTALION Page 5 Versatile Bruins Pose Lofty Hurdle for Aggies By RONNIE GREATHOUSE On their last two October migrations to Kyle Field the surly Bears dashed A&M’s promising title hopes — and •fierce rumblings from the Waco den indicate that Baylor ex pects to do it again Saturday. Chances of seeing the A&M- Baylor clash on television appear dim today, as an estimated 7,800 tickets are still available. The game cannot be televised unless it is a sellout.

College Ph. 2-2864 I A&M’s great 1951 team, a pre season choice for the Southwest Conference championship, could do no better than tie the Golden Bruins, 21-21, and finally finished up with a mediocre season record. The Cadets caught a glint of the crown in 1953, but Baylor’s rowdy crew stunned the then unbeaten Aggies 14-13. “Don’t expect us to look as good against Baylor .as we did last Sat urday,” says Assistant Coach Pat James, “The Bears have a more versatile and more balanced ball club than TCU, and are a lot bet ter than most people give them credit. COACH GEORGE Sauer has stressed defense this fall, as op posed to his offensive-minded doc trine of the past two frustrating years, and Baylor’s excellent show ing last Saturday goes a long way in proving his point. After unbeaten Washington had gone ahead 7-0, just 3:56 deep in the second quarter, Baylor from then on held the Huskies to a mi nus 5 yards on the ground. In the last two-thirds of the contest the Bears picked up 178 yards rushing and 61 passing. THE GREEN and Gold have 17 returning lettermen off last year’s team that dumped the Aggies 20-7, and a surplus of sophomores from last season’s Cub team that wal loped the Fish 38-14. Coach Paul Bryant sent his hard- nosed gridders through defensive drills against Baylor plays yester day, and brushed up offensive plays with Donnie Grant, Jimmy Wright and Don Watson alternating at the I man-under position. Among several standouts in this week’s practice sessions so far have been Billy Huddleston, Gene Hen derson, Bill Dendy, Ken Hall, Lloyd Hale, Dennis Goehring and Murry Trimble.

Such a person plays left guard for the Aggie football team—184-pound Murry Trimble, who doesn’t let the loss of an arm hinder his bruising play. “Whatever he lacks below his elbow he makes up in heart,” says Line Coach Jerry Claiborne. Called “Stub” by his teammates, Trimble came here on the recommendation of Hank Crisp, athletic director of the University of Alabama, and Aggie assistant coach, Elmer Smith. Crisp, himself a one-armed athlete, was Coach Bear Bryant’s line • coach at Ala bama. Murry, who lost his left arm below the elbow at the age of five when some firecrackers he was playing with turned out to be dynamite caps, played tailback in the Notre Dame Box formation for two years at Hanceville, Ala bama High School. He was chosen for the Alabama all-star game in 1954, but switched to the line because his team was running the split-T. Coach Smith, there for the coaching school, saw him “nearly kill two or three boys” in scrimmage and notified Bryant. Bryant told him to “use your own judgment” and A&M had a one- armed guard. Trimble, weighing in at only 165 pounds, was just another name of the 100-odd reporting when train ing opened for the A&M freshmen in September, 1954. People said “Yeah, he’s fast and has a lot of guts, but . . .,” and sat back to (See TRIMBLE, Page 6) Why Buy A 1955 Model Car When it wilt be a year older model in a short while, and when you can buy a new 1956 model Ford now and save money—see CADE MOTOR CO. for proof.
