As almost everyone around the Southwest Conference
knows—and many would like to forget—the Texas Longhorns
have hoarded their share of championships this year.
The Longhorns started their “titIe-grabbing , ’ last fall as
they went through an almost perfect football season, losing
only to Texas Christian in the conference and to Syracuse’s
Orange in a highly controversial and talked about game at
the Cotton Bowl battle in Dallas.
The Steers were expected to win the conference in foot
ball and the people’s eyes turned to basketball where the
T onghorns were rated a little lower on the ladder than the
Texas Aggies and Southern Methodist’s Mustangs.
For some time it looked as if the forecasters might be
right, but the Steers came through with a typical finish ....
strong, but failed to scratch against Kansas in the play-offs.
One season rolls into another and many peoole were sure
that Del Morgan’s Rice Owls would take the SWC baseball
flag. For some reason—maybe it was habit—the Longhorns
weren’t fully convinced with the predictions and finished on
top of the baseball heap.
The Longhorns find themselves in the same situation
that the Aggies were in at this stage of the game last season
and will probably have to meet Arizona in the playoffs.
If the streers do meet Arizona, it will be the sixth such
series between the two teams. Also, it will be the ninth time
since 1947, when the playoffs originated, that the Longhorns
have represented District 6.
Although the Longhorns have the conference title in the
bag, they are on the doorstep of posting the best regular
season record since 1924. However, they must sweep both
games from the Cadets this v/eekend.
Today marks the start of another fracas in the SWC as
tbe teams vie in Fort Worth for the track and field champion
The Steers are sitting in a precarious position as they
enter the conference meet with Baylor breathing right down
their shirt collars. The Bears have been tough in snorts all
year and if thev could get all their wheels rolling at the same
time, they could take the conference championship. A loss
would break the six-year reign of the Longhorns.
All hope for the rest of the teams in the SWC hasn’t been
lost for their future athletic battles with “mighty” Texas.
Retracting the seasonal steps back to last fall, some of
the freshmen football teams around the conference finished
strong and on given days probably could have beaten the
Basketball season found the Aggie Fish in the first place
spot with TCU being the top contender. A&M and TCU had
the only “tall boys” in the conference as the Aggies’ seven-
foot Lewis Qualls and the Wogs Alton Adams towered above
In baseball the winning finger points shakely at the Fish
again. The Frosh have had a winning season, only meeting
defeat one time at the hands of the Shorthorns.
The favorite in freshmen track and field competition is
Baylor whose team has broken their share of records this
spring. The Aggie freshmen are tabbed as the best in years
and should be the runner-up.
Although a review of the past shows Texas in the top
spot of all four major sports, the future could brighten for the
rest of the SWC teams and there is one certainty TU will have
no monopoly in coming years.
Farmers Close Out Season
Against Texas This Weekend
The Cadet baseball team will
close out their 1960 season with a
two-game series with the Texas
Longhorns in Austin this weekend.
As far as the conference is con
cerned, the Ags will be fighting
a losing battle to the Steers who
have already won the Southwest
Last year the Ags swept the
three-game conference slate from
the Longhorns, but in the one
game this year the Steers were
on top, 5-1.
In spite of last year’s losses to
the Ags the Steers hold a 122-8
This year’s title marks the 36th
time Texas has been the winner of
the SWC, 33 times undisputed and

Successful Fish Encounter
TU Shorthorns Tomorrow
The Fish baseball team will go
into their game on Kyle Field
Saturday against the Texas Short
horns boasting one of the best
seasons in many years.
Boasting a 9-1 won-lost record,
the Fish polished off their latest
victim, the Baylor Cubs, 7-0, in* a
tense game that showed pitcher
Ed Singley tossing a perfect game.
Coached by Gary Herrington of
Baytown, three-time All-South
west Conference catcher, the
Freshman team started the sea
son by winning three games in a
row before falling to the Short
horns by a 4-9 score. Since then
the Frosh have defeated Allen
Academy twice, Tarleton Junior
State College, the Rice Owlets and
the Baylor Cubs.
Such a tremendous season is at
tributed to the pitching of Singley,
Jerry Warren and Mike Spence
and the powerful hitting of Bill
Musemeche, Jerry Carter and Bill
Puckett. Not to be left out is
accurate fielding by both the in
field and the outfield.
Musemeche will be the leading
hitter going into the game Satur
day afternoon with a blistering
.455 average. In 44 times at bat
he has collected 20 singles, seven
doubles and two home runs to set
the torrid batting pace.
Second baseman Carter is not
for behind with a .444 batting av
erage and is followed by Puckett
who is presently batting .316.

double to his credit in 36 times at
bat, while Puckett has made 38
trips to the plate collecting 12
singles, four doubles and two home
Pitcher Warren has the honors
in the won-lost department as he
has five wins and no losses to his
credit. In 33% innings, he has
accumulated 36 strike-outs and an
ERA of 1.27.
With 43% innings to his credit,
Singley has a won-lost record of
3-1, taking his only loss against
the Shorthorns. Striking out 48
batters, he has a very outstanding
ERA of 0.62.
The Fish have compiled a fine
team batting average of .290, as

three ties figure in the total.
The Aggies are posting one of
the lowest SWC records in their
history. They have won only one
game in the SWC while losing nine
and one tie had to be called be
cause of darkness.
In their last outing the Cadets
dropped a pair of games to the
Baylor Bears who are now riding
in the second place position with
While the Aggies have won only
one of their last nine conference
games the Longhorns have won
five straight in the conference and
15 of the last 16 games.
Leading the Longhorn batters
is Jay Arnette with .357 in confer
ence play. Arnette will be remem
bered by most people for his per
formances on the hardwoods dur
ing basketball season.
John Burton, first baseman, is
the Cadet’s leading regular with
In the homerun department the
Longhorns' Roy Menge and the
Ags’ Byron Barber are fighting it
out for the number one spot.
Menge has six and Barber has five.

Only four strings! But these four strings
offer endless possibilities of tone and harmony.
They open to man new horizons of beauty and
And yet, improperly played, these four strings
can bring forth unbelievable discord!
There are four strings in life — with similar
possibilities. Mind . , . Character . . . Courage
, . . Faith!
The truths that fill our minds, the ideals
that mold our character, the purposes to which
our courage is given, the realities in which we
believe; these can fill our lives with rich beauty
and happiness or drab ugliness and sorrow.
For centuries the Church has been the
maestro of these strings of life — helping men
to bring from their own souls the harmony and
beauty God has put there.
You can find music in everyday living through
participation in the work of the Church.

THE CHURCH FOR ALL . . .
ALL FOR THE CHURCH
The Church is the greatest factor on
earth for the building of character and
good citizenship. It is a storehouse of
spiritual values. Without a strong Church,
neither democracy nor civilization can
survive. There are four sound reasons
why every person should attend services
regularly and support the Church. They
are: (1) For his own sake. (2) For his
children's sake. (3) For the lake of his
community and nation. (4) For the sake
of the Church itself, which needs his
moral and material support. Plan to go
to church regularly and read your Bible
