THE BATTALION Page 2 College Station, Texas Wednesday, November 4, 1964 BATTALION EDITORIALS Student Spirit 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 athletic endeavors. 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 game. 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. Who Murdered 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 and useless. 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 must come.

Editor, The Battalion: 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 ritating. While I hold no special brief for Nasser and have alway been rather pro-Israeli, I do not be lieve that spectacles such as that last Thursday night bring the problems of the Middle East into any clearer focus.
