AstroFacts < .^^MW***** 0 ^ ’* : YOU SURE A WALL GOES HERE? A&M construction workers seem to be somewhat puzzled about where the next wall should go in the new lounges in the Corps area. Work has been progressing on schedule and two of the student lounges should be ready by the opening of fall semester classes. It has been said that “if” is one of the biggest little words in the English language. But the way the Houston Astros have been going lately, this might be a pretty good time to combine a little forward and backward “what-iffing” where they’re con cerned. Just about every Houston fan is aware of a couple of important things: —The National League is go ing to divisional play in 1969. —The Astros have been play ing good, winning baseball un der the managing of Harry Walker. (Through last Wednes day, they were 36-31 under Har ry “The Hat.”) Combining those two items in to the major point of this “what if” session: Had the National League Split into divisions at the same time that Walker became Houston’s Manager (June 18), the Astros would be involved in a red-hot battle for the NL’s Western Di vision championship. The league’s Western Division in 1969 will include Houston, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Cincinnati and expansion club San Diego. Since Walker took ovef the Astros, only Cincinnati has had a better winning percentage than Houston among the future West ern Division Clubs. And the Reds’ lead isn’t enough to make them overconfident. Cincinnati has a 35-26 recotj during the period for a winninj percentage of .574. That wotj give them first place in sucki “what if” divisional alignment, But Houston, with a 36-31 Hj, ord (.537 percentage) over ft, same span, would be only t»i games off the Reds’ pace. Anj the Giants would be in the div, sional pennant battle, too, tr»l ing by only three games. Although it’s impossible to fi ? , ure a record for the incomir.; San Diego club, only Atlanta (| games behind) and Los Angels (14(4 games off the pace) woulj be out of the running in sitt circumstances. The Astros, apparently on ft. way to their best August in % tory, completed a three-gar. sweep of the Dodgers last Wei nesday night. It gave Houston! winning streak of four games and meant that the Astros ha been victorious in seven of ft t last eight, nine of 12, and Ihf 15 since August 9. Had that divisional breakdon come on June 18, 1968, here;, the way the standings wonli look: NATIONAL LEAGUE WESTERN DIVISION Team W L Pd G8 Cincinnati 35 26 .574 - Houston 36 31 .537 2 San Francisco 32 29 .525 3 Atlanta 30 35 .462 1 Los Angeles ....20 40 .333 San Diego ? ? ? ! Read " Classifieds T ransportation Conference Set The Department of Transpor tation and Texas A&M will joint ly sponsor the Eleventh Annual Transportation Conference at the University, March 27 and 28, 1969. Secretary of Transportation Alan S. Boyd and Maj. Gen. John P. Doyle of the Texas A&M Tex as Transportation Institute met in Washington to discuss the con ference plans. The conference theme, “Emer gency Transportation,” recog nizes that in any national defense emergency, some degree of cen tralized national and regional control may be required. The conference will explore the needs, analyze proposed regulations and procedures, and recommend courses of action leading to im proved national transportation prepax-edness. —operators of the modes of transportation and traffic con trollers—university and research personnel, and representatives from DOT, Doyle said. Oren Beal, Darby (Butch) Meier, and Eddie Novosad, formerly of the MSG Barbershops, announce the opening of Villa Maria Barbers & Stylists Friday, August 16. “Our staff of home town men will continue to give you the excellent service that we have given in the past— with the addition of hair styling and razor contours.” 812 Villa Maria Road — across from the Skyway Drive - In. 823-8925 “Industry, government and the research agencies should sit down together to work out effective emergency controls,” said Secre tary Boyd. “We must insure that our regulations and procedures are as simple and practicable as we can make them; the alterna tive is chaos at a time when we could least afford it.” Doyle, MacDonald Professor of Transportation at Texas A&M, will direct the workshop, working closely with the DOT Office of Emergency Transportation. The conference will be attended by transportation industry officials Firearm Safety School Conducted Area boys and girls will begin their training in firearms and hunter safety at 10:30 a.m., Sep tember 7, according to Sidney L. Loveless, National Rifle Associ ation counselor. The school will continue through the succeeding two months at Pleasant Acres for those between the ages of 11 and 19. This year’s school marks the begining of the 36th such school conducted by the Twin City Jun ior Rifle Club under the auspices of the National Rifle Association and YOU-TOMORROW, a non profit educational corporation for the benefit of youth. Although emphasis will be placed on marksmanship and safety, the class will have an opportunity to fire the .22 shotgun on the Mo- Skeet range at miniature clay pigeons thrown by foot operated traps. This firing is in addition to .22 rifle marksmanship train ing. For the hunter there will be instruction in tenting, cooking and orienteering. Graduates of the school will receive certificates and will be eligible for selection to membership in the Twin City Junior Rifle Club Loveless said. Rifles, ranges, texts, ammuni tion and instruction will be fur nished. All the student need bring is a canteen of water and wear a long-sleeved garment. Chief instructor for the school will be Jim Durham, and he will be assisted by Jack Bowen and Jerry Mosley. For delicious hamburgers! Ground Beef 49' Safeway. Lean Beef. (2-Lb.
