Main St. year’s Fish team, will be assisted by Don Watson, Gene Henderson, Bebes Stallings and John Gilbert.

Aggies Place Two Players On All-SWC 11 Texas Christian, which won the championship, placed the most men on the All-Southwest Conference football team with four. Texas A&M, Texas and Arkansas, which finished in that order behind TCU, were also multiple placers. Jim Swink, TCU’s great half back, was the only unanimous choice in the team picked by the coaches for the Associated Press. But there were ties at two spots, thus there are 13 men. Herb Gray, Texas guard, lacked only one vote of being unanimous. Menan Schriewer, Texas end, and Hugh Pitts, Texas Christian’s cen- ter, lacked two votes. Texas Christian came up with Swink, Pitts, tackle Norman Hamil ton and Charles Curtis, quarter back. Texas placed three men, with sophomore Walter Fondren tying for one of the halfback spots with Preston Carpenter of Arkansas. The Texas Aggies landed two men on the team. They were Den nis Goehring, guard, and Eugene Stallings, end. Stallings tied with Henry Gremminger of Baylor for one of the wing spots. Arkansas had Carpenter and Henry Moore, the brilliant Razor- back fullback. Pairings with Hamilton at tackle was Forrest Gregg, Southern Meth odist’s power of the line. Barely missing the first team were a couple of A&M players, Jack Powell, tackle, and Jack Par dee, the big fullback. Seven of the men making the first team were seniors, so that means almost half of the players picked on the all-conference will be back next season. riuncfx DRIVE IN DINING ROOM 90c LUNCH Served from 11 until 2 PLATE LUNCHES Soup or Juice — 2 Vegetables Meat — Coffee or Tea — Dessert Triangle Banquet Room BY RESERVATION ONLY FOR LUNCHEONS, DINNERS, RECEPTIONS, WEDDINGS AND BANQUETS Cadets Can Go Places Under Loeffler’s Wing By RONNIE GREATHOUSE Ken Loeffler, A&M’s brilliant basketball mentor, has been at Ag- gieland only a short time and al ready the Cadets are going places. Tomorrow they take on the Tulsa Hurricanes at Tulsa. , Saturday the Aggies play Vanderbilt at Nash ville and Monday, Dec. 5, they meet Memphis State at Memphis. “To use an old press term, we’re going to try and play the ‘spoiler role’ this year. I hope we can spoil something except ourselves, tlilough,” said Loeffler. Loeffler, who came here after compiling a phenomenal record at LaSalle College in Philadelphia, takes over the reins of an Aggie basketball team that has won only six games in the past two seasons and only one in Southwest Confer ence action. During-his six years at LaSalle, Loeffler’s teams won 145 games and lost only 30, and played in a post-season tournament every year. LaSalle won the NCAA title in 1954 and was the runner-up last year. The Aggies will leave by plane for Dallas today and catch a train for Tulsa tomorrow. Only one sophomore gets Loef fler’s starting nod tomorrow night. Two seniors and two juniors round out the first team. Sophomore F r i,t z i e Connally, A&M’s top high jumper during the track season, brings his 6-3 frame into his first starting role on the varsity. Although playing little more than half the season as a freshman, Connally finished as the Fish eager’s third ranking scorer with 122 points in eight games. He averaged 15.2 points per game. ‘ Bill Brophy, 6-3, and A1 Love, 6-5, are the two seniors on the No. 1 team. Brophy was the varsity’s leading point maker last season with 336 points, and averaged 14 points a game. Love played in only 15 of A&M’s 24 games last season, but has shown great im provement this year. Two juniors, Roger Harvey, 5-11, and George Mehaffey, 6-4, complete the stalling team. Harvey, one of the best defensive men in the con ference last year, seems to have recovered from a knee injury that hampered him last season. Me haffey was third among A&M scor ers, and was a standout during the latter part of last season. He scor ed 268 points and was second in rebounds with 180. Loeffler plans to take 10 players on the three-game tour before opening the season here Dec. 10 against LSU. Others making the trip this week are Carter Williams, John Henry, Ted Harrod, John Fortenberry and Bryan Sutherlin. “We have two boys, Ken Hutto and John Lesikar, who are breath ing down these other guy’s necks, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they beat somebody out later on,” Loef fler said. “We plan to mix up our defenses this year, try all the types of zones. We’ll try lots of things, but we’ll still be -faced with that awful prob lem—no big guy!” on the Aggie basketball team will be in the starting line up against Tulsa Dec. 1. The 5-11 junior is a defensive wizard. See Joe Faulk ’32 for — Auto Parts Seat Covers Crosley-Rendix Appliances JOE FAULK S AUTO & APPLIANCE STORE 214 N. Bryan 2-1669 Christmas have you up a tree?
