A&M, which blasted Wichita State in its opener and helped open Louisiana State Universi ty’s season with a 20-18 victory over the Tigers will be out to pull a major upset. Ohio State has credentials that can be matched by none and will be in a revengeful mood Satur day when they hit the field for the first time since their 24-12 loss to the University of Michi gan in the final game of 1969. That loss, the Buckeyes first since 1967 cost them the number one ranking in the nation’s foot ball polls. This season the Buckeyes are ranked number one in the Asso ciated Press poll, which is select ed by sports writers, and second to the University of Texas at Austin in the United Press In ternational Poll selected by coaches. A&M, rated from third to sev enth in pre-season polls for the Southwest Conference race has a few observers blinking their eyes because of its quick start. The Aggie upset of LSU last week has brought several na tional awards to A&M football ers. Linebacker Mike Lord was selected as the Associated Press’s SWC defensive player of the week and also received the same award from the Dallas Morning News. Quarterback Lex James was selected a member of United Press International’s National backfield of the week and also was named UPI’s SWC back of the week. Thursday, in the latest award, Coach Gene Stallings was named UPI’s national coach of the week. The Aggies go into the game with a few injuries that may sideline several starters and key second teamers for the contest. Lord and right halfback Brad Dusek both have missed practice this week but will make the trip, although their playing status is questionable, Stallings said Thursday. If Dusek doesn’t play it may mean Elmendorf could see his first action on offense this sea son. Steve Luebbehusen, left line backer who missed the LSU game because of shin splints and Chris Johnson, second unit left cornerback, was injured in the LSU game, will not make the trip, Stallings said. Clifton Thomas will again re place Luebbehusen and Grady Hoermann is a strong possibility to replace Lord if he does not play. Sophomore Kent Finley will man the right linebacker post for the Aggies. The Aggies will have the same lineup for the contest as last week at other positions, with Lex James again handling the quar terbacking duties and Doug Neill starting at fullback. Steve Burks will man the right half back spot. Burks is the Aggies’ leading rusher after two games, with 102 yards. Dusek has 93, Neill 58, Doug Robbins 31 and Marc Black 25. Hugh McElroy, Rocky Self, Tommy Goodwin and Joey Herr will be the main target as split receivers for James. McElroy What Are The Implications Of The Lawsuit Against The Mayor And City Councilmen Of College Station? Mr. A. P. Boyett, Sr. and others sued Robert S. Calvert, State Comptroller, in an Aus tin court seeking to prevent him from paying the Texas A&M University salaries of the Mayor and five city councilmen of College Station while these men are serving in city gov ernment. This suit claims that an “employee” of Texas A&M University is an “agent’ of ficer or appointee” of the State of Texas and thus ineligible to draw a state salary while holding an office of honor or trust such as service on the City Council even though such service is without compensation. While this Austin lawsuit applies only to the particular individuals who have been sued, and is being heard in Austin since the State Comptroller is involved, the City and most of the citizens are concerned greatly with the wider implications. WHAT ARE THESE IMPLICATIONS? Without doubt no employee of Texas A&M University who requires his salary for a livelihood could afford to serve on any City Council, a School Board, or in any other ca pacity, appointive or elective, which would be considered a position of honor or trust even though no compensation would be paid for such service. This same prohibition to serve would apply to all staff, faculty and employees of every state-supported college and university in Texas. Numerous people now residing in this community would suffer a disqualification from public service notwithstanding outstanding individual capabilities. Not only would employees of Texas A&M University be excluded from public service, but other state em ployees would be effected equally. Voter choice here and elsewhere could be severely restricted and majority rule may be in jeopardy. The Right To Serve League has been organized by concerned citizens to keep the public fully informed as to the status of this case and in support of voter freedom of choice and the right to serve. THIS AD PAID FOR BY THE CITIZENS RIGHT TO SERVE LEAGUE SANDSTEDT, SECRETARY-TREASURER). (J. B. HERVEY, CHAIRMAN, MRS. CLARA L. has caught nine passes in two games for 243 yards to lead the receivers, and Self has three re ceptions. Goodwin has two and Herr has one. Tight end Homer May has been a top threat in the Aggie offense also, snagging five passes for better than a 20 yard average. Ted Smith will again start at center, Leonard Forey and Jim Parker at the guards and Andy Philley and Benny DeWitt at the tackles in the offensive line. The defensive line will remain the same with veteran Van Od om and sophomore Bolce Best lining up at the tackles and Todd Christopher and Max Bird at the ends. The defensive secondary will have Elmendorf at free safety and David Hoot will be the free safety. Ed Ebrom will be left corner- back and Bland Smith will be the right cornerback. Because of the injury to Johnson, sophomore Robert Murski may be the num ber one backup for both corner- back positions. Ohio State will counter with a veteran lineup that includes 18 two-year lettermen and at least six All-American candidates. The Buckeye attack is led by All-American candidate at quar terback Rex Kern. Kern’s main credit is the fact the Buckeyes have lost only one game in the two years he has been signal caller. He has rushed for 1,000 yards and scored nine touchdowns, i well as passing for nine lasts® UT-Tech battle opens SWC race Official Jet Sunglasses $5.00 Special LOU'S GOT IT By STEPHEN BRYANT Battalion Sports Writer The Southwest Conference foot ball race gets underway Saturday night in Lubbock, with two un defeated teams battling it out. The home standing Texas Tech Red Raiders have a two-game winning streak going after open ing with wins over Tulane and Kansas. The number one ranked Texas Longhorns (by UPI poll) have won their last 21 games, with the last loss being to the Raiders in Lubbock in 1968. The ’horns are heavy favorites. However, the Raiders, under new coach Jim Carlen, should make this one an interesting contest. In Waco this week, the Baylor Bears, with a 1-1 record, take on Pittsburgh. The Panthers are 0-1, having lost to heavily favored UCLA last week. In this night contest Pitt will rate as a slight favorite over the Bears. Quarterback John Hogan of Pitt put on an impressive show in the loss to UCLA as he hit on 29 of 47 passes for 299 yards, tops in the nation. His favorite receiver, Dennis Ferris, grabbed 10 of those to take the receiving lead and Pitt’s punter, Joe Spicko, is tied for national punting honors. The Rice Owls, coming off a 42-0 opening win over VMI, go to Baton Rouge to face the Tigers of LSU. The Tigers are recooping from a 20-18 battering upset by the Texas Aggies. Tiger Stadium should be full again Saturday night and the Cats will be out to even things up with their SWC foes. Chuck Hixson and the SMU Mustangs, the only winless team in the conference after two weeks of play, face the New Mexico State Aggies in the Cotton Bowl. The Mustangs are heavy favor ites in this afternoon encounter. Ron James of the Aggies has run for 2,473 yards in two varsity seasons and is off to a good start with 110 more last week. The Arkansas Razorbacks are at home this week, after splitting their first two games. The Hogs dropped their opener to Stanford but pounded Oklahoma State last week. Providing the opposition for the Razorbacks will be the Tulsa Hurricanes, who are undefeated in two starts. Game time is 2 p.m. in the hills. Junior quarterback Steve Judy and the TCU Horned Frogs go north to Wisconsin to tangle with the UW Badgers, who are winless after one outing. The Frogs, so far, whipped the University of Texas at Arlington and looked good despite losing to Purdue. The Frogs are slight favorites in the afternoon battle at Madison. COURT’S SADDLERY . . .
