The Sports Parade

Abilene last week' to" attend the

Texas High" School Coaches As-

rectors throughout the state were

imated 'that' there were four hun-
dred athletic directors present in
With "the meeting under way, all
the members of the coaching school
attended the game between North
and South Texas last Friday, Aug-

Tarleton's tennis players have
been a little slow in getting start-

been played. This one set was. play-

to the large enrollment expected
this fall, Coach hopes to see a large
squad pn the opening day of foot-
ball practice which starts late in
There seems to be quite a few
potential Plowboys here on the
campus already. Among them are
C. Q. Davis who plans to go out
for end and Bobby Crouch who will
try for a backfield position. The
Plowboys only returning letterman.
is Pop Peters, who will fill in the
blocking-back position. Sam Ken-
nedy, if he comes back, might
prove a valuable backfjejd man in
the Plowboy eleven. Foster and
Wilkerson could help the fwtball
squad Considerably 'if they were not
handicapped by previous ' football
injuries. Because of a previous
football injury Ted Hatcher, 1944
line, captain from Coleman, will
not be able to go out. Those are
only the names of a few Boys here
this" summer, but the majority of
the Plowboy squad will come from'
the freshmen student body this fall.
Prospects For Other Schools
It looks as if the Aggies are
short of manpower again with on-
ly a few returning Iettermen.
Among the Iettermen are Bob But-
chofsky, a back with plenty of
power and ability; "Dusty" Dan-
iels, the precision passer; and
Monte Moncrief, who. shines at
tackle. The Aggies "also have Pee
Wee Smith to tote the ball, Art
Abraham and Gray for guard's, and
Skeet Ellis who may fill in as cen-
ter. For at least part of the sea-
son, Butch S'chefts will be around
to man the tackle opposite Mon-
The rest of the team will have
to come from the freshmen who
will have some promising fellows
donning the Aggie Maroon this
coming football season. That, is the
lineup that We hope will tramp the
Teasippers this next fall.
The Horned Frogs have a few
holes to fill this season for a full
squad, but the T.C.U. eleven prom-
ises to pull through the next sea-
son with excellent competition for
other schools. Of the conference-
winning eleven last season, there
are five returning Iettermen. There
is Jess Mason, famous for his
punts; Jim Couper, center; Speed
Cox, full back; Merle Gibson, end;
and Harry Mullins.
Henry Rose and J. C. O'Neal, a
pair of two-hundred pound veter-
ans, will fill the tackle positions.
New T. C. U. freshmen stars are
also expected to pop up from the
The Longhorn team is expec
to be medium-strong this fall al-
though it wouldn't take much more
football talent to make a whale
of a difference.
Maxie Bell, veteran tailback,
Jack Halfpenny, veteran blocking
back, and Byron Gillery, an artist
at fancy running, will prove to be
a powerful trio to stop. Lacking
in Coach Bible's team so far ys
one boy who can pass and run.
Along the line will be tackles Jim-
my Plyer and Harlan Witz, ends,
Hubert Bechtol and Dale Schwartz-
koph, guards Elmo Folfe and Dave
Green. The center position is still
vacant so far. So it looks as if the
Kadet Kiddie Korps will have a
little competition again this fall
against the Longhorns.
Tarletonettes Versus Plow girls
Friday night, August 17, two
powerful basketball teams clashed
for a 99-99 score. The first of the
first quarter found both teams un-
able to score but then with a sud-
den burst of speed, Miss Petunia
Peters intercepted a pass from
Miss Wanda Belle Wylie to Miss
Moonbeam McDaniel. During the
exciting turn of events, Miss Eggs-
maralda Richmond of the Plow-
girls suddenly collapsed. After be-
ing fanned by the dresses' of her
teammates, Miss Richmond sprang
to her feet and soared! ready for
Then came the end of the half
and both girls' teams glided grace-
fully off the court. After the rest
period, both teams pranced on to
the court to renew their struggle.

MARTHA NIX +
Dear Miss Nix:
After the Aggette watermelon
feast, we have been in a daze. We
fell desperately for two agricul-
turists. Our problm now is to let
them know our desire to go with
them. They think that we are merej
friends, but we indeed want to be
nAore than that. Will they ever pay
any. attention to us ? If not, we
shall be very disappointed.
Two Lonely Coeds.
Dear Lonely Coeds: k
Your circumstance is a some-
what- complicated matter.
' The best thing I can advise for
you to do is to be your sweetest
self to them. They will soon learn
that you both exist. Did you know
that the thing that will ruin a boy
quicker than anything is a bright
sunny smile? Another is the point
of being friendly. By this, I mean
to speak to the handsome agricuL
turists — ladies speak first, you
know—and treat them as you
would other bpys. Be able to talk
with them about subjects that ap
p.eal to them.
Some boys are timid because
they feel they are being "flirty" if
they act too friendly with a girl.
So just be patient, and they will
find you someday.
If you have a problem send it
to Martha Nix m care of the J-Tac
office. She* guarantees to splve
your problems or to create new
ones for you.
