Wednesday, November 2, 1955 THE BATTALION Page 3 Frogs 10th In Nation, Ags Drop to 12th Place By RONNIE GREATHOUSE Battalion Sports Writer TCU took the lead in the Southwest Conference foot ball race today — that is if you use the Associated Press’ national rankings as a guide. The Aggies, who humbled the Horned Toads earlier this season, 19-16, were dropped one knotch to 12th place while TCU broke into the 10th spot, 147 votes ahead of A&M,. Despite the sports writer’s grac ious gesture toward the Froggies, A&M still leads the Conference “officially” with two wins, no losses and a tie. . Texas and TCU are tied for second place with 2-1 won-lost records. Right now the Aggie players and coaches aren’t as worried about national rankings as they are with the mammoth SMU Mustangs, who they face Saturday night. “I don’t know how much they outweight us, but it’s a whole lot,” said Coach Paul Bryant, yesterday after practice,” Ya’ know, it takes a pretty cou rageous little fellow to line-up against all those big fellas.” The SMU forward wall, anchor ed by such heavies as 256 pound Tiny Goss and 240 pound Eric Kne- bel, will out weight Bryant’s “Light Brigade” by almost 23 pounds per man. Dennis Goehring, A&M’s start ing right guard, will have the job of moving either Goss or Knebel Saturday. Dennis weighed in just shy of 183 pounds after practice yesterday. The Cadets and Ponies have no common foe this season, but an in dication of the strength of the two LOYD HALE has been one of the most consistent per formers in the Aggies’ light forward wall this season. Weighing in at only 188 pounds, Loyd has pushed heavier opponents, like TCU’s Hugh Pitts, all over the field.

SMU ranks just ahead of A&M in both offense and defense, having gained 309.8 yards on the attack and given up only 211 yards on defense. A&M has an average of 302.3 yards per game on of fense, and 214 on defense. Coach Bryant seemed pleased with the Aggie practice yesterday. The Aggies had a short scrimmage under game conditions, and worked on defense against SMU plays. The slashing running of full back George Gillar, and the pass ing of Grant, Wright, Watson and Crow were the high points of the afternoon. “Gillar’s looking far better than anyone on offense, and stands a good chance of start ing Saturday,” Bryant remark ed, “Conrad will probably start somewhere too, maybe at right halfback.” In six straigfit games now, the Aggies haven’t had a punt re turned against them. They have kicked 30 times and allowed 28 yards in returns, all in the UCLA game, for an average of only 0.9 yards per-runback. Basketballers Open Workouts With Scrimmage A&M’s 1955-56 basketball team opened workouts yester day as head coach Ken Loeff- ler put both squads through a 45-minute scrimmage. Loeffler divided the 39 candi dates into four teams and worked them at the same time on passing and ball handling. He sent the var sity in early and watched the 22 freshmen hopefuls. He will cut both squads to 12 men. “George Mehaffey, Fritzie Con nelly and Roger Harvey seem to be a little further advanced,” said Loeffler, “and may become the core of the team.” He added that shooting and speed will get first priority on the selection of the starting lineup. Varsity candidates and experi ence: John Fortenberry—Sr. 2L; Bill Brophy—Jr. 1L; Roger Har vey— Jr. 1L; George Mehaffey— Jr. 1L; Ted Harrod—Jr. 1L; Don Bilbrey—Jr. 1L; John Henry—Jr. 1L; Jeff Penfield—Jr. squadman; Fritzie Connelly—soph; John Lesi- ker—soph; Bryan Southerland— soph; Carter Williams—soph; Tom Kolle—soph; Ken Hutto—soph; A1 Love—JC transfer; Tom Sawyer— JC transfer. mm -- b : ilfcpA. BOBBY JOE CONRAD will “start somewhere” for the Aggies Saturday according to Coach Paul (Bear) Bryant. The versatile Clifton sophomore has been used at three positions so far this season, quarterback, end and halfback. Bryant had another such versatile player at Kentucky— He was Steve Meilinger, an all-American. TIRE HEADQUARTERS B. F.

Dominating the entire game, but scoring only once, the Sqd. 16 Fish refused to allow a single penetration in their 6-0 triumph over A-QMC. Bobby McMillan and Denny Up- ham were the key figures in the Quartermaster defense, while Ray Hart looked good on offense. Mc Millan was also a standout at quar terback, executing some fine pass ing plays. A Clement pass snagged by Pete Gould set up the Sqd. 16 scoring drive which ended with Paul Mar tin taking another Clement toss over for the tally. The conversion try was no good. Duncan Watwood and Paul Mar tin guarded the Sqd. 16 line with complete authority. Both showed versatility, standing out on both offense and defense. In another football thriller B- Composite’s Eugene Simms capital ized on a Sqd. 19 bobble. The Sqd. 19 quarterback juggled the pigskin on a bad pass from center, and in his effort to hold onto the ball, Simms came in, took the ball and was over for a touchdown to tie the game. Sqd. 19 won on penetrations. Sqd. 18 downed A-Composite by two penetrations; Sqd. 7 blanked A-Chemical 12-0; and A-Signal walloped Sqd. 15 15-0.
