AGGIES ROLL OVER EAGLES, 47-0
In their first game of the season, the North Texas
gridmen fell victim to the powerful Texas Aggies, who
blocked, passed, and ran their way to a 47-0 triumph
over the Eagles at College Station. Aggie ace, Barney
Welch, making three of the Cadet's touchdowns him-
self, kept the Eagles busy.
The only serious threat made by the Eagles during
the game came in the third quarter when they man-
aged to drive from their own 32-yard line to the Aggie
6. The North Texans gained invaluable experience by
playing the Cadets, and primed themselves for the next
encounters of the season.

NORTH TEXAS BEATS KANGAROOS, 14-0
Bouncing back from their defeat at the hands of
the Aggies, the Eagles defeated a stubborn Austin
College team by 14-0, before a home crowd of 4,500.
The first score came in the first quarter as the result
of a drive from the NT 30-yard line to the Kangaroo
19, from which point Billy Dinkle, speedy fullback,
ran the ball over with a dash around his own left end.
After that the Kangaroos' defense stiffened to block
other Eagle drives, and, by taking advantage of North
Texas' fumbles, managed to keep the home team more
than occupied in the third quarter. The Eagles snapped
out of it in the final period, however, and drove from
their own 20-yard line to the Austin College 4-yard line.
Back Harold Bartlett carried the ball over on the next
Bartlett races for the double stripe with two Austin College
gridmen close behind.
