isn’t getting any work,” said Coach
Bryant. “If they can’t get out

A&M’s LOYD TAYLOR—versatile right halfback who took
Jimmy Wright’s 30-yard pass for the Aggies’ first touch

up a 41-9 score against Bryant’s
first try in the Southwest Con
Eight of the Aggies that faced
Tech in Bryant’s “welcome” to
Southwest football will mainstay
the nation’s number 11 team. Jack
Pardee, Don Watson, Gene Stall
ings, Bobby Keith, Dee Powell,
Lloyd Hale, Dennis Goehring and
Bobby Lockett are back with but
one thought foremost in their
minds—get Tech.
The Red Raiders, although los
ing both 1956 games so far—to
Texas Western and Baylor, will
show a starting lineup that has
earned 22 varsity grid letters. A
pair of all-Border Conference
guards will make it tough on the
injured Aggie middle. Hal Broad-
foot, 6-1, 205 pounder, has made
the honor team three years and his
running mate, 210-pound Ray Ho
ward is a double-award winner
and hack after a stint in the arm
ed services.
