Squadron 10 Cagers
Win Freshman Title
John Crews dunked six points as
Sqd. 10’s defense-minded quintet
wrestled the freshman basketball
championship from Sqd. 16, 18-17
in Friday’s intramural action. Both
teams played outstanding ball and
Sqd. 16’s Herbert Taylor paced the
runners-up with three baskets and
three free throws. Duncan Wat-
wood was the defensive stalwart
for Sqd. 16, while Don Soland
starred as the champion’s right
guard. Chuck Brown and A1 Wil
liams contributed much to the fast-
moving Sqd. 10 offense.
Jim Willborn crossed the double
stripe for Sqd. 2 in upperclassman
football, deadlocking a quarter
final tilt with defending champion
D-Infantry. D-Infantry’s Ken Kuy
kendall made the score even, but a
costly penetration handed the de
cision and a semi-final berth to
powerful Sqd. 2. Don Hicks, Tom
Norton, and Steve Long were other
outstanding gridders for the vic
tors. Besides Kuykendall the In
fantrymen boasted fine action from
Bill Owens and Don Butter.
A-Engineers will clash with
Sqd. 2 today after decisioning a
stubborn Sqd. 15 via the penetra
tion route yesterday. Dick Sor
rells was the Engineer’s star, play
ing quarterback and halfback with
equal ability. Arvill Newby, J. D.
Gray, and Bob Yates looked good
in the Sqd. 15 line-up, but the game
airmen never crossed the Engineer
20-yard stripe.
Sqd. 9 defeated Maroon Band,
2-1, ushering freshman volleyball
into the 1956 Intramural schedule.
Sal Esparza, Vic Lucas, Bob Busby,
Roy Anderson, and Leo Ygnacio
made the points for Sqd. 9. Maroon
Band scorers were George Calhoun,
Joe Guinn, Nolan Gamble and Wil
liam Smith.
Sqd. 12 downed Sqd. 1 in another
volleyball match, 2-1. Noi*man
Smith, Ken Sutton, Jerry Powledge,
Max Cornelios and Keith Cecil
composed the winning lineup.
In other volleyball games, B-FA
beat Sqd. 2, 2-1, Sqd. 10 defeated
A-Infantry. In civilian horseshoes
Walton defeated Milner and Mitch
ell tied College View B.
The Sowings Bond
that went through
matic washer does a pretty thorough job on a
Savings Bond. But it takes more than damp
ness, decolorants, or detergents to destroy its
value as this story illustrates.
The above photograph shows what happened
when a U. S. Savings Bond, left by mistake in
a man’s shirt pocket, went through the family
washing machine. It looked like a real blue
Monday for that Bond-owning family —until
they told their story to the U. S. Treasury. The
Government replaced the Bond. The familyj
realizing more than ever the value and safety
of Bond ownership, stepped up their Bond
buying program. And they all lived happily
ever after.
This true story illustrates why Bonds are said
to be “Safer than Cash.” Each year the Treas
ury replaces thousands of Bonds lost either
through carelessness or through the whims of
nature. Every major flood, tornado, explosion
or fire brings a wave of applications for Bond
So here’s something to remember. Any of your
Savings Bonds that are lost, stolen or destroyed
will be replaced by the United States Treasury
without charge.
U. S. Savings Bonds are not only safer than cash
but one of the best investments you can make.
You can be sure of the principal, sure of the
returns (an average 3% interest when held to
maturity) — and sure of the future when you
invest regularly in Savings Bonds.
So start investing in Savings Bonds today— either
on the Payroll Savings Plan where you work or
at your bank. That’s the safe and sure way to
dean up.
The U. S. Government does not pay for this advertising. The
Treasury Department thanks, for their patriotic donation,

WINTON THOMAS, Aggie pole-vaulter, sails over the 13-
foot mark during last Saturday’s triangular track meet
between Texas, Houston and A&M on Kyle Field. Thomas
tied for first place with James Clark, also of A&M, at 13-6.
Aggie Vets Win 25-0
Intrasquad Game
Saturday night’s annual Maroon-
White intrasquad clash on Kyle
Field proved one thing at least—
A&M’s quarterback situation is
just as perplexing as ever.
“We had no explosive speed, in
the backfield or the line. We
just weren’t coming off the line
fast enough,” Coach Paul Bryant
said, after watching his veteran
Maroons blank the Whites 25-0.
QB Job
with 46 yards in 16 tries and in ad
dition passed for 61 yards.
Wright scored the first Maroon
touchdown in the second period on
a one-yard plunge. Osborne made
the second Maroon score in the
third period and Pardee the third
on a 3-yard blast minutes later.
Crow’s 22-yard jaunt capped the
night’s scoring.
A&M Baseballers Ride
Long Undefeated Skein
Coach Beau Bell’s baseballers go
after their 12th straight regular
season victory tomorrow afternoon
at 3 on Kyle Field, taking on the
tough Sam Houston State Bearkats
for the second time this season.
The Cadets have now won 11
straight regularly scheduled games
dating back to last year’s mid-sea
son loss to Baylor at Waco. So far
this season the Aggies have stop
ped two opponents, Sam Houston
and the University of Houston.
After opening the season with a
6-3 win over the Bearkats at
Huntsville behind the stylish twirl
ing of veterans Dick Munday and
Doug Mullins, the Aggie nine post
ed ja thrilling 7-6 victory over
Houston Saturday before an over
flow Sports Day crowd.
Coach Bell will probably start
Munday against Sam Houston
again, having in relief Mullins,
Lynn Monical, Elo Zatopek, Toby
Newton and Paul Lang. Munday
went seven innings against the
Kats in Huntsville, giving up three
runs and seven hits, all scattered.
Mullins, stocky righthander and
letterman, turned in a sterling re
lief job against the Bearkats, fac
ing only seven batters in two in
nings and fanning four. Another
reliefer, Paul Lang, a junior col
lege transfer from Arlington State,
succeeded starter Wendell Baker
and Toby Newton Saturday and
took credit for the win.
All-conference centerfielder John
Stockton smashed one of Billy Led
better’s offerings over the left-cen
ter field wall in the last of the 10th
to break up a 6-6 tie and beat
Houston Saturday. The pitch came
on a 3-2 count with two outs.
Righthander Baker started for
A&M against the Cougars, and
gave up only one run before retir
ing after the fifth inning.
Second sacker Dick Blecknei’,
socked two singles in four trips to
the plate to lead the Cadet batsmen

against Houston. Dick batted .409
in seve'h SWC games last season
before being injured. Left fielder
Phil Newport made three nans
against the Cougai’s to lead the
Aggies in that department.

Four of Bryant’s split-T opera
tors, Don Watson, Jimmy Wright
and Roddy Osborne of the Maroon
team and Luther Hall of the
Whites, showed leadership at times
with Watson having the better re
cord for the night.
Watson was the game’s top
ground gainer with 94 yards picked

An Amateur Fencers League of
America match highlighted Satur
day’s action and saw the Aggies
completely dominate the prep epee

What’s doing
at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft
R. P. I. Dedicates mmm
Graduate Study Center
Near Main Plant
Engineers participating in graduate study program comple
ment their classroom training with laboratory experience
gained through their daily employment.
'Engineers from Pratt & Whitney Aircraft waiting for classes to begin at R.P.I.’s new graduate
study center. Courses, leading to advanced degrees in specialized fields, include Aeronautical
Engineering, Applied Mechanics, Higher Mathematics, Thermodynamics, Nuclear Technology. t
The dedication last month of a full-fledged graduate
center near the Pratt & Whitney Aircraft plant,
in East Hartford, Connecticut, set a precedent in
relationships between industry and education. At
a cost of $600,000, P & W A’s parent company
purchased and equipped the building that was pre
sented outright to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
for its Hartford Graduate Center. Moreover, an
additional grant by this industry leader to R.P.I.
was used to establish a liberal fellowship fund. Since
last fall, when classes first began, this tuition-assis
tance plan has functioned to assure advanced educa
tion for Pratt and Whitney Aircraft’s applied sci
entists and engineers.
The new graduate study center, 115 miles away
from its home campus in upper New York State,
is staffed by a resident, full-time faculty. Engineers
at Pratt & Whitney Aircraft and other companies
in the vicinity are able now to continue their educa
tion without interrupting their normal employment.
Designed to raise the level of knowledge and to
broaden the base from which research can be ap
proached, this unique new concept of education
will lead enrolled engineers to greater achievement
in their careers through pursuit of advanced degrees
in specialized fields from the nation’s oldest engi
neering college.
The vast facilities required for practical application of advanced technical knowledge to the R. P. I.’s Hartford Graduate Center, a modern, one-story

the world’s most complete, privately owned turbine laboratory. drive from the P & W A plant. Student facilities include
a large lecture room, a library, classrooms, seminar rooms,
