Accomodations From 10 to 200 Persons SPIRITED SPRING SESSION A&M’s Football Future Finer BY MAYNARD ROGERS With 24 returning lettermen, including 15 seniors, generating some spirit this spring, Coach Hank Foldberg and his staff will point to the 1964 Aggie football campaign with ‘’guarded opti mism.” That catch - allp HHHMHMHaH||MN||a | phrase has been the outlook for Aggie football teams in many passed seasons, but after Fold- bergs’s most en thusiastic spring session since his I arrival to the Brazos Bottom the Aggie task- McLEAN master feels things may be look ing better. Foldberg and his staff, moving into their third A&M season, con tend they had the finest spring training since they’ve been here, primarily because of the squad’s attitude, spirit and dedication. Those three words — attitude, spirit and dedication — have be come as much of a way of life in the A&M Athletic Dept, lately as wind sprints after practice, and they did a lot in bringing South west Conference basketball and baseball championships to Aggie- land. After a disappointing season in 1963 that produced a 2-7-1 rec ord, the Maroon can’t help but want something more in ’64, and Foldberg and the squad believe they can get it. For the second straight season, the Aggie eleven will open with four tough opponents that could kill some teams for the rest of the year. Marked in order are LSU, University of Houston, Tex as Tech and Southern C a 1 i - fomia. But the Aggies will be drawing from a fine McILHANEY freshman team of last fall for the needed depth in the early season games. Shuffling of positions during the spring for balance and smoother attack was made by some players, and with little or no trouble in the transitions. Budgie Ford switched from halfback to fullback, and should run tough inside or in daylight. Guard Melvin Simmons moved to tackle for added strength in a formerly weak position, and Ken McLean jumped back to his old playing slot at end from fullback. The quarterback slot is in the best situation since Hank’s ar rival. Pasadena senior Danny Mcllhaney is number one boy, with size, speed, strength and savvy. His poise keeps him ahead of challengers Jim Willenborg, Charles LaGrange, Eddie Mc- Kaughan and Harry Ledbetter. Maroon Judo Aces Set For AAU Meet The A&M University Judo Club journeys to Bastrop Saturday to compete in the state AAU judo meet.

Next year’s new members in clude letterman from five sports. Future Aggies Star In Track They say it’s the little things in life that count, but some of the big things can’t exactly be sneezed at. Like for instance a pair of high school seniors who are on their way to Aggieland—Rotan’s How ard Van Loon and Greenville’s Max Mainord. The final state track marks show both to be at the top or near the top in their specialty. Yet nei ther will own a cinderman scholar ship. Van Loon is a football future but holds the best mark in Texas and the nation in the shot put— 64-5%. Mainord is a product of basketball coach Shelby Metcalf’s efforts. The 6-4 jumping jack also has high jumped 6-5, good enough for second ranking in state rec ords. Track coach Charley Thomas should be smiling. Mainord was an all-state eager for two years in Class AAA, all district three years and the most valuable player in the East Texas basketball tourney. The Greenville star, who was sought by more than 40 colleges, averaged 17 points per game in three years of competition.

Mays Held Hitless As Colts Win 4-3; Take Giant Series HOUSTON (A>> —Willie Mays was held hitless for the first time in 21 games as the Houston Colts edged the National League leading San Francisco Giants 4-3 Thursday night on A1 Spangler’s tie-break ing single in the eighth inning. Mays was handcuffed in four trips to the plate by Bob Brace as his average plummeted 19 points to .449. It was the first time Mays had been held hitless since April 16, when he was stopped by St. Louis’ Curt Sim mons in the third game of the season. Bruce struck out 10 and brought his record to 4-1 with Hal Woode- shick’s relief help in the ninth. The Colts scored the winning ran in the eighth when John Bate man led off with a walk against Bob Shaw Billy Pierce then took over for the Giants. Pete Runnels batted for Bruce and hit into a force play. Eddie Kasko then sin gled to right and Runnels raced to third when Matty Alou fumbled the ball. One out later, Spangler singled.

Last January, we selected twenty 18- and 19-year-old young men and women through the Junior Achievement program to drive our team of Chevrolets in the Mobil Economy Run, April 3-9. It was the first time any company had relied entirely on drivers with limited experience in this exacting competition. We brought these young adults—most of them college students, some from the busi ness world — to Arcadia, California, in late February. For six weeks, our expert teachers trained them in the skills of economy driving. Then, on April 3, they set off on the Run, 3,243 miles from Los Angeles to New York. We were going against the grain. It takes high profi ciency to win the Mobil Economy Run. Competition is tough. Why did we rely on drivers with such limited experience? Chevrolet wanted to give the Chevy Teen Team a chance to prove in front of the nation that they and the 6.5 million licensed drivers in their age bracket are safe, sane people behind the wheel. We felt the Run offered a splendid chance. The Corvair, Chevy IIs, Chevelles and Chevrolets driven by the Chevy Teen Team in the Mobil Economy Run did remarkably well compared with the class winners in overall miles-per- galion figures. The final results are a tribute to the high degree of driving skill displayed by the Chevy Teen Team representing the youth of America. No wonder we’re proud of America’s young adult drivers. We couldn’t have a better reason. A return Battal in his T son an ing th Ii officia others Europ V identii field c tion.
