    GET OFF MY BACK—seems to be what Aggie Quarterback
Roddy Osborne is saying after picking up some real estate
in last Saturday’s 19-0 victory over Villanova.

To Shape Up
Head Basketball Coack Ken
Loeffler appeared anxious Tuesday
to have October and the basketball
season roll around.
Stu Heller and Neil Swisher are
expected to bolster the 1956 A&M
team, according- to Loeffler. They
are up this year from last years’
freshman squad and bring some
much needed height to help
George Mehaffey and Fritzie Con-
Although Coach Loeffler realizes
that fall training is three weeks
away, he does encourage his ball
players and others interested to
make use of the gym.
Despite last Saturday’s victory over Villanova, A&M
dropped out of the first 10 in the Associated Press’ first
weekly football. poll.
The Aggies fell from their pre-season pick, ninth, to the
number 11 rung in the grid ladder after their poor showing
against the up-coming Wildcats.
“We’re looking a little better this week than we
have so far,” confirmed Coach Paul (Bear) Bryant
Tuesday after putting the Aggies through a 40-minute
full-speed scrimmage, “But we sure haven’t looked like
a football team yet.”
The Cadets, after going through the motions to subdue
the Villanova Wildcats, 19-0,
last Saturday, move into the
swamps of Louisiana this
weekend to meet the fired-up
Tigers of LSU.
With almost a full month of
practice behind them, the power
ful Bengals will be pointing for
the Aggies. In 1955 A&M crushed
LSU, 28-0, but the Louisiana lads
don’t expect any such score this
year as they open their season on
the home front.
“In all probability LSU will
beat us if we don’t perk up,”
said Coach Bryant. “They
haven’t had much spirit or
enthusiasm, yet, but I have
hopes we’ll get a little life in
Jack Pardee and Dennis Goehr-
ing both watched Tuesday’s
practice proceedings from the
sidelines with injuries contracted in
Saturday’s contest. Other than that
pair, the Aggies are in better
physical shape than at this time
last week.
“We hope Pardee will play some
Saturday,” commented Bryant.
Goehring will probably be able to
suit up today.
“Our first group did fairly well
today,” stated Bryant. “They look
ed pretty good, but we’ve got a
long way to go.”
Maglie f s No-Hitter
Downs Phils, 5-0
BROOKLYN — ( 2P)— Sal Maglie,
the old pappy guy, turned his al
ready great comeback into an epic
last night with a no-hit, no-run
performance over Philadelphia
that gave Brooklyn a 5-0 victory
and kept the Dodgers within a half
game of fist place Milwaukee in
the National League pennant race.
The 39-year-old righthander,
previously junked by the New York
Giants and Cleveland Indians,
claimed his 12th victory with the
clutch job in which only three
Phillies reached base, two on
walks and one when hit by a pitch.
The Dodgers, held to just four
hits, stayed even in the lost column
with the Braves, who all but drop
ped Cincinnati out of the race 7-1

in an afternoon game. Milwaukee,
with three games left, now is 91-
60, good for a three percentage
point edge over the Dodgers, who
are 90-60 with four games re
In the ninth, Maglie retired
pinch-hitter Frank Baumholtz on
a foul pop, struck out pinch-hitter
Harvey Haddix, hit Richie Ash-
burn on the foot with a 1-2 pitch,
and then wrapped it up by getting
Marv Blaylock on a bouncer to
second baseman Junior Gilliam—
setting off a mob scene that left
Sal mowed under by his mates and
fans who flooded the field.

Before they have even play
ed a game, Oklahoma’s Soon-
ers have lost two of their
leading challengers for the
No. 1 spot in college football.
As a result, the first weekly poll
after the season’s play began again
listed Oklahoma on top, but Notre
Dame had dropped to 14th place
after a 19-13 setback by Southern
Methodist arid Maryland was clear
out of sight after a 26-12 beating
by Syracuse. It took just one week
to give the pre-season selections
a thorough shuffling.
