Che Battalion Volume 61 COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS TUESDAY, MAY 12, 1964 Number 45 Texas Gets Tight Collars; Aggies Take SWC Title Striking Out Is Not So Bad, Says Pizzitola By GLENN DROMGOOLE Managing Editor Aggie Catcher Bill Hancock was at the plate. Neal Thomp son, speedy sophomore outfielder was perched on first base. A&M’s number two catcher and number one holler-guy, Jerry Piz zitola solemnly told the photo grapher, “If Handy gets on, I’ll probably have to pinch hit.” Sure enough, the Golden Bear got on — all the way to second base — and Lance Cobb was in tentionally walked to fill the bases. Next in the batting order was pitcher Steve Hillhouse. But Aggie coach Tom Chandler had other ideas. He beckoned to Piz zitola. Here was the situation to be a hero or a goat. The bases were loaded with one out in the top of the ninth inning of the game that would decide the Southwest Conference Baseball champion ship. The scoreboard read: A&M 2, Texas 2. Chandler halted Pizzitola on the way to the plate. “Go up there swinging,” the coach ad vised. He did. The Texas pitcher grooved two strikes, which Piz zitola watched. Then he picked out the one he wanted and missed it. But the stocky catcher was not a goat. Frank Stark belted a double to clear the bases and give the Aggies a 5-2 lead, which they held for a victory. After the game, Pizzitola was just as happy as the next guy. “What if I had hit into a double play?” he asked. Now that’s optimism.

She and other officers were Slayer Of 4 Called Gentle BOISE, Idaho GP) — A man presumed drowned after the Mo ther’s Day killing of his three children, a stepdaughter and a former wife was described Mon day as a “hard-working, gentle individual.” That’s what Lt. Col. Edwan Farrell said about Raymond A. Reasons, 54, a government store keeper for the Army Reserve in the Boise area which Farrell supervises. Sheriff Myron Gilbert said that Reasons was presumed drowned in the swift flowing irrigation canal where his car was found with the body of his former wife. Reason’s estranged wife, Ed na, told police Sunday that her husband had telephoned her he had killed their children, Eddie Ray, 13, Pamela, 11, and Patty 1, and Sally Gohman, 19, who was Mrs. Reasons’ daughter by another marriage. Traffic patrolmen Rex Mehl spotted a car that looked like that of Reasons. He said the driver acted suspicious, so he gave chase. The car went into the irriga tion canal, Mehl said. A man climbed out and stood on the hood with a rifle, and the officer said he fired a warning shot at the man who jumped into the canal and disappeared. The body of Reasons’ former wife, Estelle, was pulled from the car. She had been shot. The children were found dead in Reasons’ home. Coroner E. D. Paris said the 11- and 10-year- old girls had been strangled, aparently with wire; the boy had been shot, and the older stepdaughter had been beaten to death. All were wrapped in blankets.

Stark 9 s Hit Wins For Maroon Nine By JIM BUTLER Associate Editor A thin Maroon line of heroes tromped across Clark Field Friday afternoon to their dressing room under Memorial Stadium across the street. After 26 innings—nine hours—of pressure packed, ten sion-laden baseball, the Aggies could lay claim to the South west Conference championship. They had beaten Texas at their own game, in their own field and the cries of “Poor Aggies” still echoing off the centerfield cliff. The climax came in the top of the ninth inning with two outs, bases loaded, score tied at 2-2 and darkness descending. Aggie first baseman Frank Stark hit reliever Robert Wells’ second pitch to the wall in left field scoring all three runners. “It was a high, inside fastball, one of the few I’ve hit this year,” Stark said. The senior from Davenport, Iowa, also accounted for both Aggie runs in the first game with a fourth inning home run over the right field fence. Chuck McGuire, who took the loss in the 3-2 first game, retired the Longhorns in order to preserve the win for Steve Hillhouse and secure the crown A&M last won in 1959. Hillhouse, sophomore lefty from Colorado City, thus chalked up two wins over Texas for the season, both by 5-2 scores. Hillhouse relieved starter Billy Crain in the seventh inning. A&M and Texas played to a 10 inning 5-5 tie Thursday to necessitate Friday’s double header. It was a great display of determination and guts on the part of the Aggies. Jerry Ballard, shortstop from Bryan, was one of three Cadets to get four hits as well as playing errorless ball despite a pulled leg muscle that barely permitted him to walk. Billy Crain, pitched eight innings of strong ball and played 16 more frames in right field. Neal Thompson came off the bench to score two runs and make a good catch for the final out in the final game. Robert McAdams replaced Freddie Carlton in the seventh inning of the second game and made a difficult running catch of a foul ball off the bat of UT’s Butch Thompson. Bill Hancock, taunted throughout the series by Teasips, caught every inning in the 80-degree heat and drove in the first A&M run in the second tilt. Second baseman Bill Grochett also played errorless ball and picked up four safeties for the Aggies. For the eight seniors on the squad it was sweet revenge for the loss suffered to Texas in 1962. That year the Aggies went to Austin with the same situation, needing one win in two games. Texas won both games and the title. And for 15 innings Friday, it looked like the same fate was in store for the Maroon again. Texas scored two runs in the bottom half of the seventh in the opener to put all the chips on the second game. Very few of the 4200 fans left at intermission. But this time the tight collars were on the other throat. The Steers had stuck doggedly with the superior Cadet club but luck ran out on them. The clinching victory gave A&M a final 12-3 SWC record and a 19-6 season slate. Coach Tom Chandler’s crew won 13 of their last 14 games. Chandler was the rookie coach of A&M’s 1959 title-winners. Texas ended with a 10-5 record and a second place tie with Baylor. The Bear baseball team made the trip to Austin for Friday’s twin bill and were behind the Aggie bench root ing for the Maroon. The baseball crown, hard on the heels of A&M’s basket ball title, means that A&M will probably represent Region VI at the College World Series in Omaha. The regional selection committee must first determine if there are any independent schools worthy of playing the Aggies. If not, the next game for the Cadets will be 2 p. m. Monday, June 8, in Omaha against the Region IV representative. Region IV is in the midwest. CSC Awards Banquet Held The Civilian Student Council held its annual awards banquet Monday in the assembly room of the Memorial Student Center.
