Is Help, Hindrance
The A&M student body showed Saturday night that the
desire to win is still very much evident on this campus. The
vocal support given the Aggie gridmen against Arkansas
was a tangible exhibition of its continued devotion to A&M
Also heartening was the enthusiasm displayed by the
Aggie partisans not in the student section. They showed that
even in an unsuccessful season, the former students and area
residents still have an interest in the team.
This is all fine and good. However, there are still three
games left on the schedule this season and “talking it up” will
surely be in evidence again at those contests. In order to ob
tain the maximum benefit from this ageless tradition, Aggies
should re-examine it and consider its effect as it is now used.
The yelling presently begins when the opposing team breaks
from their huddle and doesn’t end until the play is over. There
is a hidden pitfall in this and The Battalion believes that it is
important to reveal it to the student body before the next
Intelligent quarterbacks have been exploiting these yells
for some time. Their trick is simple. They call a play in the
huddle, line up in their formation, size up the Aggie defensive
alignment, and then ask for a rehuddle on account of the
noise if they want to call a different play. Through this ma
neuver, enemy quarterbacks are enabled to base their play
selection on a foreknowledge of A&M’s defensive line-up.
Fred Marshall was doing it very effectively for Arkansas Sat
urday. He has not been alone. The most extreme example
came last season in the Baylor game. Slick Don Trull, the
Bruin signal-caller, picked the Cadet defense apart with
this advance information.
One solution which has been suggested would keep this
from happening and would remove the danger of penalties,
yet would not hinder the overall effect of the yells. Why not
“talk it up’ when the opposing team leaves their huddle but
cut it short when the signals are being called? Then resume
it as soon as the ball is snapped.
The Aggie roar is a powerful institution; one respected
all over the conference. It can have a marked effect. But
its effect will be even greater when it only helps one team
on the field.
L. N. P.
The Political Protest?
Friday’s protest against the University banning of cam
pus political organizations was a flop. And not because “Two
blondes in bathing suits could have attracted more attention.”
The protest fizzled for the same reason that the Young
Democarts and the Young Republicans were first expelled
last spring—disunity. After a half hour speech on the un-
consitutional motives of the administration by a “non-parti
san but bi-parisan” leader of the demonstration, one member
of the protestors had the audicity t osanction the rally but
agree fully with the administration.
If he had wanted to kill the protest more effectively, a
hahd'gernade would liave been more subtle. And then to kick
the prostrate image of unity when it was down, the Young
Republicans immediately withdrew all support from the dem
onstration and absolved themselves for participation in any
form. Et tu Brute!
The question of ethics in the administration’s decision
is academic. As far as the political clubs are concerned, the
campus hierarchy is omnipotent and any decision they reach
is law. If for this reason alone, demonstrations are childish
But to give up on what is certainly a valid conflict of
opinions would be disgrace as well as defeat. Now that the
election is over, the administration’s fears of active political
support on this campus can be quelled. If the clubs can put
up some semblence of unity and approach those responsible
often enough, with good enough arguments, some compromise

The recent lecture given by
Mr. Robert St. John was a most
unfortunate affair, which was not
particularly enlightening on what
might be next in the Middle East.
The very complex problems in
this area deserved better than
they received from Mr. St. John.
While he protested that he was
not anti-Arab, the over-all effect
of his lecture, little more than a
series of anecdotes spiced with
emotionalism, contradicted his
assertion. In fairness to Mr. St.
John, he probably meant what he
said, but he was abominably poor
in getting his points across.
While he made few misstatements
of fact, the selection of facts he
did present implied an anti-
Egyptian feeling far stronger
than he could have made by an
outright attack on the U.A.R.
One must get the impression that
Mr. St. John is incredibly naive.
His condescending manner toward
questionners who tried to bring
out additional facts was very ir
