THANKSGIVING PRELIMINARY—An indication of what will be starting at A&M in a
couple of weeks was last night’s A&M Consolidated High School’s Annual Bonfire. Con-
* solidated fans were out to build up spirit in preparation for tonight’s encounter with the
Waller Bulldogs at Tiger Field. The game will start at 8.
Fumbling Ag Fish Salvage
7-6 Victory Over Kittens
Battalion Sports Writer
Still undefeated, but lacking- the
scoring punch that beat TCU and
Baylor, the fumbling Aggie Fish
Salvaged a listless 7-6 victory over
the University of Houston Kittens
Thursday night on Kyle Field.
Outplayed by the faster Kittens,
^lie Fish lost the ball six times on
fumbles and saw three drives dwin
dle inside the Houston 25.
A&M’s few bright spots included
the fine play turned in by. fullback
John Tracey and halfbacks Joe
Pascuzzi and Luther Hall.
Tracey play6d a terrific defen
sive game from his linebacker posi
tion and one of his two fumble re
coveries set up the Fish touchdown.
After fumbling on his first run
from sci-immage, Tracey picked up
30 yards in the second half and
smashed over for the score.
v Pascuzzi was again the leading
A&M ball cai’rier with 47 yards on
12 runs. His fifth exti'a point out
of six attempts was the margin of
Hall, running from left halfback,
gained 34 yards on 14 tries, inter
cepted a Houston pass and broke
up what appeai’ed to be a complet
ed Kitten pass on the Aggie four
in the last minute of play.
A&M drove to the Houston 21
midway in the opening quarter, but
Pascuzzi lost five on an attempted

pass bounced out of end Don Usry’s
hands on foui’th down.
Two Aggie drives fell short of
paydirt in the second period, with
the Fish losing the ball twice on
After Hall intercepted Joe Fatu-
la’s pass, A&M drove 39 yards in
8 plays to the Houston 15 where
Hall fumbled Hathorn’s pitchout
and center Harold Davis recovered
for the Kittens on the 23.
With fourth down and 11 yards
to go Davis punted 41 yards to Hall
who returned it to the line of scrim
mage and the first-year Aggies
set up shop on the 22.
Pascuzzi hit the middle for one,

Students To Help
Dedicate Aggieland
For the first time in the history
of A&M, the student body will par
ticipate in* choosing the theme and
dedication for the Aggieland.
Beginning Monday and lasting a
week, a box will be placed in the
hall of the Student Center next
to the Post Office entrance for
students to place their ideas.
In explaining the new idea, edi
tor Kurt Nauck said that “since
the Aggieland is the school’s book,
we want to give the entire student
body a chance to participate.”
Nauck said the dedication should
be to some cause, person or organ
ization that ha^ a lot of meaning
to the school. He said that the
theme will be carried throughout
the entire book. The Aggieland
staff will be the final voice in the
choice of the dedication and theme.

LOOSE BALL—Scrambling- for a loose ball on the Aggie
one-yard line are players from the freshmen teams of
and the University of Houston. The ball was recov
ered by Fish center Stanley Roper, after being fumbled
by Kitten quarterback Joseph Fatula. The Kittens had
driven down to the Fish goal-line in the last two minutes of
^the first half when the timely fumble occurred. A&M
won 7-6,
tempts fell incomplete to stifle
the drive.
Houston took the second half
kickoff and drove to the Aggie 37
where, with fourth and 11, Fish
left tackle Jerry Cramer blocked
Davis’ punt and the Aggies took
over on the Kitten 44. Two plays
lost two yards and after Hall’s
pass missed end Terry Boozer,
Hathoim punted over the goal.
The Kittens worked the ball out
to their 35, where Cramer again
blocked Davis’ punt and Don Usry
covered for A&M on the Houston
12. Tracey, Hall and Hathorn
worked the ball to the, three, but
Pascuzzi was stopped for no gain
and Houston took ovei*.
On the next play Wayne Hol
lister fumbled and big Tracey re
covered on the six. Tracey hit
right tackle twice for the touch
down with 1:10 left in the third
quarter and Pascuzzi’g perfect
placement made the scoi’e, 7-0.
Houston scored midway in the
fourth period after Hathorn’s al
most-blocked punt went out of
bounds on the Fish 43. With a
third and three on the 27, Billy
Koons cut inside right end and
went all the way.

* Report Planned
On Constitution
At Next Meeting
The Civilian Student Coun
cil, after a long and some
times hot debate, voted last
night to send a recommenda
tion to the Student Life Com
mittee that the competing teams
in the 12th Man Bowl be composed
of civilian students versus Corps
The main objection expressed
was the fear that such a division
of students for the game would
split the student body into an ir
reparable division of Corps and ci
vilians. Against this fear was
voiced the belief that A&M stu
dents weren’t that “small,” thht
they would enter the game in a
feeling of friendly competition.
Another deciding factor was that
the division of the game into a
conflict between Air Force and
Army several years ago had not
had any damaging effect on the
unity of the Corps.
The CSC also passed on to their
Constitutional Committee a “work
ing model” constitution for study.
After studying the model present
ed, the Council sent it on to be
reported on at the next meeting by
Bennie Camp, Gerald Van Hoosier
and Bill Lilly.
Also approved, with details to
be announced later, was a motion
that civilian chaplain Joe Blair be
allowed two assistants. One is to
be chosen from civilian students in
College View and one from the ci
vilian dormitories. Blair was chos
en for his position at the last meet
ing of the Council.
The collection again tips year of
magazines for veterans at McClos-
key General Hospital in Temple
was brought to the attention of
the CSC. All present agreed that
th$ project was worthwhile, but
disagreement on just how the col
lection was to be done brought
comment from several members.
Councilman Hugh Lanktree pointed
out that last year, when boxes
were put on the different floors
and ramps of dorms, the boxes
were treated as an “exchange” or
a “take-what-you-haven’t got.” Al
so mentioned was the accidental
throwing out of two boxes of mag-

“If funds can be made available,
it is planned to expand the pro

of the Center’s Board of Directors.
Last year, for $1.50 per week,
parents could leave their children
