The 16th Century California coast is the setting for this intriguing encounter between native Americans and European sailors under the command of Sir Francis Drake. Drake, his crew, his captured Spaniards, his Cimaroon mistress, and the Olamentko Indians all find each other equally mysterious. This comic clash of cultures is an innovative, sometimes poignant, often disconcerting and always entertaining, perspective on the roots of much of today’s cultural misunderstanding.

Hammons Assistant Sports Editor Injuries were once again the main topic of discussion at Texas A&M Head Coach Jackie Sherrill’s press conference Tuesday at Cain Hall Dining Hall. “We’re really kind of devastated” Sherrill said of the wave of injuries that has struck the Aggies in the past few weeks. Backup center John Elam, backup outside linebacker Jeroy Robinson and defensive end Guy Broom all have sprained knees and are out of Saturday’s game against Louisiana Tech at Kyle Field. Fullback Matt Gurley (turf toe and dislocated finger) backup de fensive end Albert Jones (knee) and left guard Trace McGuire (knee) also are out. Elam and McGuire are out for the season. Extra problems on the offensive line surfaced when McGuire’s backup, Mike Pappas, sprained his neck. Sherrill said Pappas is “very questionable” for Saturday. Starting center Matt Wilson has a sprained knee and also is questiona ble, leaving huge question marks in the left-center of tne offensive line. The right guard, Jerry Fontenot, has a strained groin and is also question able. Sherrill said the staff was keeping a careful eye on Chet Brooks, who has a sprained knee and is listed as probable for the game. Other proba bles include running backs Keith Woodside (bruised shoulder), Dar ren Lewis (bruised knee) and Larry Horton (strained knee). Quar terback Bucky Richardson (bruised hip) also is probable. Sherrill said the injury situation is the worst he has experienced at Texas A&M. So, it K iail gene rtment ,ame.

Horned Frogs’ Jeffery garners SWC honors From the Associated Press Tony Jeffery, who owns all of Texas Christian’s career rushing re cords, has another mark to tell his grandchildren about some day. For a record fourth time, Jeffery, a senior from Gladewater, has been named The Associated Press’ South west Conference Offensive Player of the Week. No other player has been so hon ored as many times during his colle giate career since the weekly award began in the early 1970s. Fort the 1986 Frog-Bear clasfi at Worth. “This is a very special award for me,” Spradlin said. “It’s my first one. I can remember losing out to Domi ngo Bryant (of Texas A&M) in 1985. I think I had five quarterback sacks in a game but he (Bryant) had some thing like three interceptions. ” Gamecocks drop in on AP Top 20 rankings Ration Tu |“It’s bet Jeffery had 174 yards on 19 car ries, including two touchdowns Sat urday in Texas Christian’s stunning 24-0 blanking of the Baylor Bears. “As Tony goes, we go,” TCU Coach Jim Wacker said. “He had a great game.” So did teammate David Spradlin, a senior defensive end who is a Horned Frog co-captain. A 6-2, 240- pounder from Seminole, he took his redshirt season last year and had 12 tackles against the Bears on their homecoming in Waco. TCU defensive coordinator Rick Johnson said, “David played a tre mendous game. If he didn’t establish himself as one of the best in the . league last week, then I’m not sure what a ballplayer has to do.” Jeffery had an 80-yard scoring run against Baylor and proved his versatility by throwing a crisp block to spring quarterback David Rascoe on a 17-yard scoring run. “I felt as good about the block as I did the long touchdown run,” Jeff ery said. He was credited with S'/a quar terback sacks for 15 yards in losses to become The AP’s Defensive Player of the Week. Spradlin also caused a fumble, pressured the quarterback into two errant tosses and tackled a rurjning back for a 5-yard loss. Not bad for someone who was in street clothes during the Baylor- TCU game last year. In fact, Sprad lin was one of five finalists for TCU’s homecoming “king” but lost out in It was a long-awaited break through against Baylor for Jeffery. His previous long run in three ca reer games against Baylor was 12 yards. He had never rushed for more than 62 yards against the Bears. “It was satisfying to finally have a good game against them,” Jeffery said. “They had my number.” Jeffery has vaulted into the ninth spot on the SWC all-time rushing list with 3,304 yards, only 14 behind Dickie Morton of Arkansas. Currenty jeffery is fifth in the na tion, averaging 129.7 yardsp His 80-yard run was the ninth of his career of 40 yards or longer. COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina, which has won three straight since a tough loss at Nebraska, made The Associated Press college football rankings Tuesday for the first time this season. And Coach Joe Morrison had no doubt where the credit be longed. “It’s a tribute to our players and coaches,” Morrison said Tuesday after the Gamecocks were ranked 19th. "We just want to be up there in the Top 20 at the end of the year, too. “Sure, we’re glad to be ranked in the Top 20,” he said. “It’s nice to know people across the coun try have been paying attention to our team this season.” South Carolina, which lost to Nebraska 30-21 taking a 21-13 lead into the final period, beat East Carolina 34-12 this past weekend to run its record to 5-2 and make the Top 20 for the first time since early 1985. The top six teams remained the same in this week’s poll, while Michigan fell out for the second time in three weeks.

Nebraska, a 56-3 winner over Kansas State, received 13 first- place votes and 1,134 points while the other seven first-place ballots went to Miami of Florida, which defeated Cincinnati 48-10 and to taled 1,108.
