THE BATTALION Pase 4 College Station, Texas Friday, May 13, 1960 IT si II a’ fi t< a t< cl a 9 P d y $■ T S $ t 1 0 b b 1 n i c t t t 1 S PORT SLANT By JOE CALLICOATTE S 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 ship. 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 Shorthorns. 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 all competitors. 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 Conference championship. 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 won-lost record. This year’s title marks the 36th time Texas has been the winner of the SWC, 33 times undisputed and Arnold Palmer Still Top Money Winner DUNEDIN, Fla.

But these four strings offer endless possibilities of tone and harmony. They open to man new horizons of beauty and happiness. 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. Copyright 1960, Keister Aiv. Service, Strasburg, Va. 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 daily.
