Nixon, Armco Accused Of $ $ Foul Play
Resonance by Steve Grayson
The Fighting Texas Aggie
Band was awesome as it took the
field Saturday night. From the
depths of the shadowy end zone
the band moved into the light
like a Roman legion entering the
Roman coliseum. Leather legs
flashing, the band filled the cen
ter of the field and paused brief
ly in its splendor. Over 60,000
screaming Cajuns filled LSU’s
Tiger Stadium, but when the
opening notes of Tchaikovsky’s
“March Slav” rumbled into every
nook and cranny in the stadium,
the crowd grew silent, and under
standably so.
It is impossible to hear and
see the Aggie Band without real
izing that something is different
about it. The music’s raw vol
ume and its intricate, forceful
drills combine to communicate a
stirring, electrifying sense of
power, and in the howling bowl
of Tiger Stadium, that is no
small accomplishment.
Later when LSU’s band began
their show, I was reminded of
the SMU game in the Cotton
Bowl, two years ago. After a
spectacular halftime perform
ance, the Aggie Band had just
left the field when the SMU
band was introduced. “Ladies
and gentlemen,” President Nixon
said, “the group you are about
to see is the most exciting col
lege band in America.’’ This
would have been a fine introduc
tion at any other game, but that
night it was ridiculous. The
Mustang Band trotted onto the
field and launched into their act,
which was indeed exciting, but it
was too much for the crowd to
take, as thousands broke out in
laughter not because the SMU
band since had it not been for
the khaki-uniformed boys climb
ing back to their seats, that
might really have been the most
exciting college band in Ameri
ca. But nobody follows the Aggie
Band and looks like anything but
highschool.
Though the Fightin Texas Ag
gie Band took the pulse of Aggie-
land to Baton Rouge, I heard a

little girl say something that
expressed the feelings of Aggie-
land in Baton Rouge after the
game. Like most other children
of former Aggie students, she
had evidently heard the story of
the 1970 A&M-LSU game many
times, for as she walked down
the exit ramp, she turned to her
day and said, “But Daddy, the
game can’t be over. Hugh hasn’t
caught his pass yet.”
Sargent Shriver said Thursday
that Armco Steel Corp. of Hous
ton received a stay from Presi
dent Nixon on an order to stop
pollution shortly before officials
of the firm donated $14,000 to
the Nixon campaign.
The Democratic vice presiden
tial candidate, speaking on the
Galveston County Courthouse
lawn, said Armco officials ob
tained the stay through the serv
ices of former Texas Gov. John
Connally who is chairman of the
Democrats for Nixon Committee.
Shriver said Armco officials
were under orders from the En
vironmental Protection Agency
to stop dumping pollutants into
the Houston Ship Channel when
“the president of Armco went to
John Connally . . . and was able
to get a stay.’’
At a news conference a few
minutes later, Shriver said that
the chairman of Armco, whom
he dife not name, was “so grate-
(ful for this special favor he
wanted to name his son for the
man who did the favor, John
Connally.”
Asked if he meant in his
speech that Armco obtained the
stay in exchange for the cam
paign donation, Shriver said he
did not because “all I have is
circumstantial evidence.”
He said, however, that the
same situation occurred in the
Soviet grain sale, IT&T and the
milk producer controversies.
“It’s no longer one isolated
incident,” Shriver said. “It’s be
coming a pattern.”
Sweating, shouting and wav
ing his arms, Shriver evoked
screams of laughter and cheers
time after time.
