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. Eyes Examined Glasses Fitted DR. E.

Main Bryan, Texas (Next to Lewis Shoe Store) Aggies 11th in AP Poll; ‘Look Better”—Bryant The Hfittnlrnn College Station (Brazos County), Texas Wednesday, September 26, 1956 PAGE 3 Loeffler Asks Basketballers 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- nally. 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,” HANDBALL GLOVES HANDBALLS and STUDENT CO-OP said Coach Bryant. “They haven’t had much spirit or enthusiasm, yet, but I have hopes we’ll get a little life in them.” 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 WEDNESDAY “THREE STRIPES IN THE SUN” With Aldo Ray PLUS “WOMEN’S PRISON” With Ida Lupino 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 maining. 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.
