Page 4 College Station, Texas Friday, May 17, 1968 THE BATTAilCtf ’68 Spring Game Officially Begins ‘The Stallings Era By GARY SHERER Tomorrow afternoon, at Kyle Field, Southwest Conference football fans will have an oppor tunity to see the official begin ning of “The Stallings Era” at Texas A&M. Saturday’s 2 p.m. annual spring Maroon and White game will showcase how successful Coach Gene Stallings’ first four years of recruiting have been. The two squads that take the field will be the result of the first cycle of Stallings’ recruiting program that began back in 1965. WHEN THE 1956 A&M grad took over the football-coaching reins at Aggieland, he said his purpose was to bring a winning football team to College Station. Last season, he did just that with a team that finished 6-4 for the season and added one more victory in the 1968 Cotton Bowl. But, that team included many players that had been recruited the last year of Hank Foldberg’s tenure. The upcoming ’68 foot ball season will feature for the first time a complete Stallings- recruited Aggie football team. Stallings split this year’s spring candidates up as evenly as possible and the game should be a close affair. OFFENSIVE COACH Bud Moore’s Maroon team will oppose Defensive Coach Dee Powell’s White squad in the windup of this spring’s football training program. Powell’s White team should utilize alot of passing with all- SWC quarterback Edd Hargett at the helm. Hargett will be throwing to wingback Barney Harris and his battery-mate in the 1967 Texas topper, Bob Long, at end. The White offense will also include returning letterman Carl Gough at tackle. He will team with sophomore-to-be Mike Fields at the tackle slots. Fields, an outstanding member of Coach Jake Helms’ Fish team last sea son, has been first team at one of the problem spots on the offensive line from the start of the workouts. ANOTHER candidate, Rusty Stallings, who is being used as one of the first team guards (the other two open spots on the line) will also be in the White line. The rest of the upfront crew will be Waymond Lightfoot at center, Ronald Reagen at guard and Doug Valois at split end. Hargett’s backfield mates will be first-year man Johnny Weaver at tailback and ’67 let- ‘Duffers Open’ Set For Today By JOHN PLATZER Through the centuries the game of golf has had to over come the scorn of kings, score- card scandals and the present threat of artificial grass. Only once before, however, has the game been put to a test like the one it will face today when 48 of the sport’s best duffers tee-off at the A&M Golf Course in the second annual Gene Stal lings News Media Golf Tourna ment. If the tournament were a book, it probably would be titled “The Best of the Worst.” The public relations coup was initiated last year and the game has just begun to show signs of shaking off the after-effects. Whether or not the game has recovered enough to survive a second assault will be the main question Friday. A car horn sounded at 12:30 to start the day’s action. Inside word says that the car will be available for quick get-aways if needed. The players have been divided into 12 foursomes for their own protection. Each of the four somes is headed by a member of the A&M athletic department. A group will be at the tee box of each of the first nine holes with the first shots expected to be hit simultaneously. Each group will end their round at the green preceding the box they teed off from. No shortcuts will be allowed. If a player’s first shot should land on the green of his finishing hole (a likely possibility) he will not be able to call it a day, but will be required to play the holes in-between. Stallings and assistant coach Ralph Smith will head up the AstroFacts Announcement is due about June 1 concerning ticket pro cedures for the 1968 All-Star Game, to be played in the Astro dome on July 9. Several of Houston’s players have found May to be a most profitable page on the 1968 calendar. Through Tuesday night’s game, the top individuals: PITCHING—Don Wilson, with a 2-0 record and a 0.52 earned run average for 17 Vs innings in May; Denny Lemaster, 2-0 and 1.33 for 27 May innings. BATTING—Rusty Staub, with a .435 average and 11 RBI’s; Jim Wynn, with a .386 average. For the month, the pitching staff had allowed only 24 earned runs in 113 innings for a 1.91 staff ERA in May. two foursomes that will start off on the number one tee. Play ing with Stallings will be Dick Peebles of the Houston Chronicle, Steve Perkins of the Dallas Times-Herald and Dave “Texas Football” Campbell of the Waco News-Tribune. Representing “The Battalion” in the tournament will be Sports Editor Gary Sherer who spends more time in the rough than a diamond. Sherer will be in Smith’s foursome. The foursome on the ninth tee will be headed by the Aggie Bugle, Spec “Easy Money” Gam mon. Jack Gallagher of the Hous ton Post will be among those in the Gammon group. Gallagher, a real pathfinder, is known as the Daniel Boone of the golfing set. Varsity football players will serve as caddies and scorekeepers during the tournament. This could provide a problem; for, after exploring the uncharted lands that they may have to, while hunting for balls, football may no longer hold a challenge for them. The tournament’s players, who are too busy turning out brilliant columns and championship foot ball teams to perfect their golf game, are really not as bad as the above makes them seem. They just play that way. terman Javier Vela at fullback. The White defense will be lead by last season All-America line backer Billy Hobbs, tackle Rolf Krueger and halfback Ross Brup- bacher. Mike DiNero, another of last season’s Fish team stand outs, will be at end along with senior Jerry Campbell. Three lettermen, two sophs-to-be and a red shirt make up the rest of Powell’s defensive starters. Leroy Hauerland at rover, Lynn Fister and Arthur Cooley in the secondary are the lettermen while the first-year men are linebacker Randy Maddox and tackle Dale Two Leaders At Colonial FORT WORTH UP)_Billy Cas per and Marty Fleckman cut two shots from Colonial’s reluctant par 70 Thursday and seized the first round lead in the $125,000 National Invitation Golf Tourna ment. Casper, the current Los Ange les Open king, rolled in a 14- foot putt on the final hole for a 35-33-68 in his bid for a second Colonial crown. Fleckman, 24, whose only tour victory was the Cajun Classic last year, strung together a 34-34-68 and narrowly missed a long putt at 18 that would have given him the lead out right. Casper started out in a light mist and wound up under over cast skies. The sun had broken through the clouds several hours later when Fleckman finished. Fleckman and Casper held a one-shot lead over Earl Stewart Jr., Kel Nagle, Jack Montgomery and Tommy Aaron. Watts. The ’67 red shirt, is middle guard Ronald Cole. MOORE’S Maroon team will feature the running of tailback Larry Stegent, 1967 SWC sopho- more-of-the-year, and fullback Wendell Housley. Housley, a two- year letterman, may be hamper ed somewhat by an aggravated left knee. Last season’s second-string quarterback and record-setting place kicker Charlie Riggs will be the Maroon signal-caller. His pass-catchers will be wingback Jack Whitmore, and ends Tommy Buckman and Jimmy Adams. The Maroon offensive line is anchored by last season center Jack Kovar. Other line starters ijllj ■s— are Mike Caswell and Mark Thomas, tackles, and Gary Gru- ben and Jim Parker at guard. ON THE defensive side, the Maroons will have a few more experienced hands. Harvey Asch- enback at tackle, Lynn Odom at middle guard, Jimmy Piper, end, linebacker Buster Adami and rover Ivan Jones, along with safety Tommy Maxwell, make up that seasoned group. They will line up with ne», comers Roy Kirkpatrick, Alin Hanson and Andy Tewell at ei tackle and linebacker.

ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of character and good citizen ship. It is a storehouse of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democ racy nor civilization can sur vive. There are four sound reasons why every person should attend services regu larly and support the Church. They are: (1) For his own sake. (2) For his children’s sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the sake of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Plan to go to church regularly and read your Bible daily. Copyright 1968 Keister Advertising Service, Inc. Strasburg, Va. Our 9A biology trip was a huge success. After we saw the museum’s collection of rare lepidoptera, we went outside to collect specimens. Then we ate lunch, and took pictures. Here’s one with me, on the left, laughing at Eddie. We were in a big discussion about whether or not butterflies can feel. While our teacher exchanged notes with the curator, we sat around and talked. After butterflies, we started on missiles and rockets, and whether or not there’s life on the stars. Somehow, don’t ask me how, we got on the subject of God. You know, I didn’t realize how ignorant some kids are about Him! All of a sudden, I found out how good it is to have some ideas about where, what, and why, I am. A few of those kids were really way out in left field. Now it’s up to me to show them what they have been missing. I think I’ve talked them all into going to church with me Sunday.
