is director of intramural athletics
after three years of coaching at
Silsbee. He was named an as-
ulty evaluation by students.
Dr. Charles H. Sampson Jr.,
head of the Depaxtment of Civil
Engineering, said he expects the
committee’s recommendations to
reach the Executive Committee
this month.
“We are charged to make rec
ommendations for a teacher eval
uation program by students,”
Sampson said. “We will first de
termine if such a program is of
value and is desirable. Then we
will proceed to recommend pro
cedures and policies to conduct
these evaluations.”
The project was given to the
standing Faculty Evaluation
Committee, which Sampson heads,
after the Student Senate unani
mously passed a resolution rec
ommending teacher evaluation.
Faculty members also include
Dr. John S. Denison, Dr. John P.
Abbott, Dr. W. C. Banks, Dr.
Fred E. Ekfelt, Dr. Gene M. Cow

W. Kunze, Dr. Alvin B. Wooten,
Dr. Willis E. Pequegnat and Dr.
Hert A. Luther.
Students on the committee are
Roland Smith, president of the
Student Senate; Wayne B. (Bar
ney) Fudge, president-elect of
the Senate; Eddie Joe Davis,
Corps Commander for next year,
and James T. Oliver, president of
the Civilian Student Council.
“I think we can accomplish a
lot if we can work out a compe
tent system of evaluation,” Fudge
remarked. “This evaluation will,
of course, have to be more than
a popularity contest, and profes
sors should not be rated simply on
whether they are ‘hard’ or
‘easy.’ ”
Fudge said that after talking
with Dr. W. A. Luker of the
School of Business Administra
tion, he was confident such a sys
tem is possible.
Davis said he considered the
addition of students to the panel
a “very good innovation.”
“This has been practiced at

Crain Preserves
Cadet Victory
Battalion Sports Editor
AUSTIN—Two years ag-o, Billy Crain walked in from
right field and stopped a Texas rally to give the Texas
Aggies the Southwest Conference baseball title.
The Aggie senior did the same thing Tuesday, except
this time his walk to the mound was not as far. He only
had to walk from first base. But Crain, who pitched less
than five innings this year, turned off a Longhorn rally
in the ninth inning- to give the Aggies at least a share
of the SWC title as A&M edg-ed Texas, 8-6.
Crain came in with the bases loaded and one out. He
promptly fired three strikes by Buddy Young. Pinch
hitter Dick Summers then worked Crain for a walk to force
in the Longhorn’s sixth run. But Crain, a Houston Bell-
aire product, calmly blew a third strike by Forest Boyd
and the Aggies had done the impossible — beating Texas
twice in their home park in the same year.
The Aggies had beaten the Horns, 9-5, Monday.
NOW A&M FACES the challenge of winning the SWC
title outright or sharing it with three other teams. Be
cause Baylor swept two games from SMU Tuesday and
the Aggies still have a makeup game with TCU, the race
could still end in a four-way tie, between A&M, Texas,
TCU and Baylor. But this could only come about if TCU
beats A&M Saturday in Fort Worth.
A&M added another distinction with Tuesday’s victory.
This is only the third time in the history of the series that
A&M has won all three games in the season. The Aggies
trounced the Longhorns, 9-0, in College Station earlier
in the year before the two-game sweep here.
Texas opened the scoring in the second with two runs—
thanks to a ball which hit a photographer behind third
base. After James Scheschuk reached first on a forced
play, Young singled to right, and as Scheschuk tried for
third, the throw from the outfield eluded Lou Camilli at
third and hit the photographer.
The umpire allowed the runners to advance one base,
which gave Texas one run and a man on third. Allan Cle
ments followed with a single to center and the count was
MEANWHILE, GARY MOORE, the Texas starter, was
setting- the Agg-ies down on two hits for five innings,
but in the sixth, the little lefty lost his control and Lance
Cobb laced a double to left to score Steve Hillhouse and
Camilli, who had walked and singled, respectively. Crain
followed with a single to center and Cobb scored to give
A&M the 3-2 lead, which they never relinquished A&M
could have had another but Crain was thrown out at the
plate on a perfect relay throw from Boyd.
The throw got both Crain and Aggie coach Tom Chand
ler at the plate. As Chandler disputed the call, he bumped
the umpire and the Aggie coach viewed the rest of the
g-ame from the stands. The rhubarb emptied both benches,
but order was quickly restored as Chandler got the boot.
BUT A&M DID NOT stop there. In the seventh, the
Aggies sent 10 men to bat and scored five runs, which
later proved to be the decisive markers. A&M scored the
runs on only two hits. Four walks and a hit batman helped
the Aggies.
Texas threatened to come back in the seventh when
they pushed across three runs on singles by Boyd, Minton
White, Moore, Joe Gideon and Scheschuk, but Billy John
son, who worked in the first game of the series, came in
and choked off the rally.
The Aggies started Tommy Chiles, but the A&M jun
ior was the victim of three miscues and the photographer
so he departed in the fifth in favor of Hillhouse, who, in
cidentally, received credit for his seventh career win over
Texas in three years. He has lost but once to the Long--
Johnson thwarted the seventh inning Longhorn rally,
but singles by Gideon and pinch hitter Gary Gressett and a
walk to Scheschuk brought in Crain.
BIBB FALK, TEXAS COACH who was trying for his
19th SWC title in 25 years, used almost all of his pitchers
in the wild five-run seventh inning by the Aggies. But
none could stop the rejuvenated Cadets. For a while it
even looked like the old man himself was warming up to
come in. In 1919, when Texas beat A&M for the title,
Falk was the winning pitcher with a five-hit shutout.
The Aggies threatened again in the eighth when they
loaded the bases, but Crain grounded into a double play
to. end the uprising. But Crain redeemed himself in the
ninth to save the day and the SWC crown.
So Tuesday night the Texas Tower stood dark and
. . . coach gets the thumb.
Chandler Ejected
But Not Dejected
By Game Outcome
AUSTIN—Viewing a game from the stands might be
okay for the fans, but not for Tom Chandler.
The A&M mentor viewed the last four innings of the
A&M-Texas game from the stands.
With the score tied at 2-2 in the fifth and Billy Crain
on second, Richard Schwartz drilled a single to centerfield.
Crain sped for the plate but a perfect relay throw from
Ray Dulak to Forrest Boyd to James Scheschuk caught
after final Longhorn retired.
The Aggie senior argued
the play and Chandler took
his defense. Both benches
emptied onto the field, but
order was quickly restored
and Chandler was ejected after
he bumped the ump a little too
“The view is different from
out there (the stand),” Chandler
said. “But the best sight of all
was the last strike Billy (Crain)
threw. Now all we have to do is
beat TCU to win the title.”
After Chandler was ejected,
freshman coach Fred Carlton di
rected the club with help from
Chuck Malitz. Conference rules
state that all persons who go on
the field must wear baseball uni
forms. Since Carlton did not have
his uniform, Malitz delivered all
the messages from Carlton to the
players on the field.
Why did the Aggies use Crain,
a first baseman who has not
worked more than five innings
this year, as a pitcher?
“Because he’s got the experi
ence we needed out there,” the
players echoed.
Two years ago Crain thwarted
a Texas rally in the ninth to pre
serve the Southwest Conference
championship for the Aggids.
“I think I threw enough pitches
out there in the one inning as I
would regularly throw in seven,”
Crain explained. “I sure was ner
vous when I got out there, but I
figured I had one thing to do—
get the ball over the plate. I
didn’t want to walk anybody.”
Billy Johnson, the second of
three relievers, thought the walk
he gave up in the ninth was very
“I put the tying run on base
and all they had to do was hit one
out and they would have won,”
Johnson said with a sigh of re
lief. “I’m sure glad this is over.”
But it isn’t yet. There’s still
TCU Saturday.

Batt Photog
Come Thru
In Clutch??
Well, Army, remember that
second inning of the big A&M-TU
game when the photographer
brought in two runs—for TU ?
Well, I have been sentenced to
ridicule myself and admit that it
was I your friendly Batt photog
rapher, who pulled that tremen
dous blooper.
Yes, it was I, Herky Killings-
worth, now alias John Mud, but
I really feel I should at least get
to explain myself. It really wasn’t
my fault. I simply miscalculated
the wind current in Clark field
divided by the velocity of the
speed of Richard Schwartz’s
throw multiplied by the deflection
of Lou Camilli’s glove.
I must admit I felt lousy. Cut
down in the middle of my beauti
ful sprint to safety, I didn’t even
know what hit me—at least not
untl I caught the stares of the
Aggie squad. And as a roar arose
from the Teasip bleachers I knew
I had scored TU’s first run. And
it wasn’t over yet, because on the
next pitch I watched the second
score cross the base—on my
credit. It was now A&M 0, TU 0,
Herky 2.
I watched the next inning in
tears. The Aggies remained
scoreless. I checked the sched
ule for outgoing buses to Mexico.
Fourth inning—still no score. I
searched the yellow pages for the
French Foreign Legion’s local
address. Another scoreless inning.
I folded up my camera, wrote out
my resignation for President
Rudder, and headed out to no
But the Aggies rallied to win,
and I was saved.
My longest day is over, but my
scars will remain forever. Please
forgive me and let me continue to
be an Aggie. I’ll turn in my
camera and live an obscure life
as a quiet 12th Man—in the
