Bevil Snaps Ag String By JOHN PLATZER John Bevil, southpaw ace of the Baylor pitching staff, and the weather combined to bring the Aggie’s seven game win string to an abrupt halt in Kyle Field yes terday, 2-0. The same two teams square off at the same site today at 3 in a game that is important to each squad’s Southwest Conference title aspirations. The loss dropped Coach Tom Chandler’s baseball- ers to 4-3 in conference while Baylor is now 5-5. Aggie bats this season. He shut out the Aggies 3-0 in a route going performance earlier in the year in Waco. The Baylor senior struck out five, walked three and gave up only one hit in his seven inning stint yesterday. Larry Stelley got the Aggies’ lone hit, a line single to left with one out in the fifth. Baylor got the only run they really needed in the first inning off Rick Schwartz, the losing Dark clouds which had threat ened yesterday’s proceedings from the start, finally erupted with two out for Baylor in the top of the eighth to bring the game to an early end. Casper Surge Brings $27,500 hurler for A&M. Mike Adams led off the game by getting on on an error. With two outs in the initial inning Bill Dykes, who had two of Baylor’s seven hits off Schwartz, delivered a single to center to bring him home. Singles by the Bears’ Larry Smith and Willie Reese gave Baylor their insurance run in the sixth and put the game out of reach of the Aggies. Schwartz, now 2-2 on the sea son and 2-1 in conference, pitched creditably for A&M. He struck out five and walked two while allowing only one earned run. Stelley was the only Aggie to reach second base in the contest as they failed to put two runners on in any one inning. After It was the second time that Bevil has cast his spell over the PARDNER You’ll Always Win The Showdown When You Get Your Duds Done CAMPUS CLEANERS GREENSBORO, N. C. <A>>— Billy Casper surged back after dropping three strokes off the pace to shoot rounds of 69 and 66 for a 267 total Monday to win the Greater Greensboro Open Golf Tournament by four shots. His 17-under-par performance equalled the event record set last year by George Archer, who tied for second with Gene Littler and Bobby Nichols. Casper, a two-time U. S. Open champion, won top money of $27,500 in the $137,500 tourna ment. It brought his official earnings for the year to $50,819, second on the list. He also has just under $18,000 in “unofficial” cash. Casper fell three shots back of Don January during the morning round, but a couple of January bogeys and a Casper birdie left them tied after 54 holes at 201. Stelley singled in the fifth, he advanced to second when Dave Elmendorf grounded to second for the second out. A double-play ended the chances for the Aggies in the first after Bob Long had drawn a free pass to start A&M’s of fense. Other Aggies to work Bevil for a walk were Joe Staples in the second and Pete Maida in the sixth. Bevil seemed to get a little stronger each inning to end with a flourish by striking out Terry Dailey, Staples and Stelley back- to-back in the seventh. Despite the Baylor loss, the Aggies still have the most im pressive season mark of the SWC teams at 11-5. Page 6 THE BATTALION College Station, Texas Tuesday, April 9, 1968 CAMP!

Stallings Receives ’68 Turkey Award By JOHN PLATZER A fifth place finish in the shot put was as close as the Aggie tracksters could get to the win ning stand at the Texas Relays in Austin this past weekend. George Resley, the Southwest Conference’s leading shot putter, took the fifth with a 55-0^4 ef fort. The senior from Fort Stockton trailed Alan Feuerback of Emporia State who won the event with a toss of 57-2. Randy Matson, the Aggie’s world record holder, threw the 16 pound iron ball 66-2 in an exhibi tion but the throw didn’t count in the Relay’s regular competi tion. The highlight of the Austin meet came when record holder Jim Hines edged world record holder Charlie Greene in the open 220-yard dash.

Car son’s traditional “turkey gift.” Carson, a 1940 A&M graduate, has been presenting turkeys to outstanding people in the world for the past 28 years.

Roosevelt. “I said if he were re-elected I would hitchhike to Washington to give him a turkey — which I did.” Since then, the various recipi ents have included President Camacho of Mexico (1941), Dean E. J. Kyle of A&M (1953), Coach Paul Bryant, A&M (1955), Presi dent Eisenhower (1956), former Vice-President John Nance Gar ner (1965), Prime Minister Sato of Japan (1966).
