Pirates Run Over Baptist 19-9
By GILLETT SHEPPARD
Congratulations Pirates! Once
more you, the favored sons have
returned with a victory, this time
over the East Texas Baptists, com-
pensating aptly for the Baptists’
-^Hnvictory last year. The Bucs, whom
we were unable to witness in play,
apparently played a superb game
in racking up their fourth victory
of the season against three de-
feats. This week-end finds the
home club entertaining the Austin
College Kangaroos, who last year
gave the Bucs quite a kicking
around in front of the AC Home-
coming crowd, depending in great
^part upon the passing of Harmon
and the receiving of Joiner. Satur-
day, we shall all have the op-
portunity of witnessing the Bucs
in their attempt to retaliate.
The intramural sports program
has gotten well under way on the
campus, and it already looks as
if the PiKA’s and the Independents
are the men’s organizations to
beat. In the girl's basketball, the
^^Delta Zetas and the Tri Delts seem
^^o have the power. At any rate,
reports have it that the girls are
playing a much faster and superior
game than last year, which in a
way will give most of the troops
a double incentive to go to the
games, ’cause now you can watch
the play too.
Promoter Blitz Griffin is in the
process of assembling a boxing ex-
^^ibition for the near future, with
an array of talent that will even
excell last year’s. However, it is
rumored that the sterling perfor-
mances turned in by “Speedy”
McPhail and “Spot” Collins last
year will not be duplicated this
year, thus detracting somewhat
from the extraordinary which ex-
emplified last year’s contests.
The Longhorn^ flapped the Owls
jvith quite a loss last week-end,
^Something that wasn’t expected in
too many quarters. However, the
’Horns national standings did not
improve, as some had contem-
plated. The Aggies were the most
severe disapointment of the year,
after rising to heights totally un-
expected in pre-season prognosti-
cations, only to fall victim to lowly
Baylor last week-end in the real
wupset of the week.
It has finally come to pass that
I no longer record my averages for
posterity, naturally due to the ad-
verse conditions existing in the
football circles of the dayt Besides
that, I think Paul Williamson is
giving me the wrong scoop on
some of these gigs. r
Nonetheless, undaunted and
courage still flying, once more, the
W For rthe Pirates, it will be num-
ber five at the expense of the Kan-
garoos, final score 14-6.
' The Aggies will bounce back
over Arkansas 32-20.
Baylor, strengthened by its
sweet victory and relying on the
good arm of Larry Isbell will carry
the laurels home from Ft. Worth
^^The defending Southwest Confer-
ence Rice Owls will finally break
into the Win column, rolling over
Texas Tech, 21-13.
Over in Austin, Texas, the game
of the week, and perhaps of the
year, finds SMU and Texas pitted
against one-another, with the
Southwest Conference laurels
hinging on the victor. The most
difficult choice of the year finds
me choosing against my pre-season
favorites, the Longhorns, because
down deep, it seems that SMU
will win by 35 26.
Another feature game of the
week is the contest pending be-
tween Army and Pennsylvania.
Both have strong clubs, and al-
tho jgh the Cadets will be lop sided
favorites, there is a chance of an
upsot; however. I’ll have to string
along with Army by three touch-
downs, 35 14.
The Slippery Rock State Teach
ers College have an open date and
will be resting up for their game
with the Clarion State Blue Devils,
who will make the trip to Slippery
Rock by train sometime late in the
Oklahoma will severely trounce
Colorado 34 0.
For Kentucky, it might as well
be an open date, for they will an-
nihilate Florida University 27-6.
And so until Williamson speaks
again Au Revoir.

The standings turned over like
Mexican jumping beans during the
week, as the Sig tide rolled over
the Ministers 19 0, and turned
around to lay out the KA’s 13-7,
just before the Independents rolled
the Preachers under by a 25-0
count and they are far from set
now, as the Barbs and PiKAs have
yet to settle the .. championship
score and the Sigg and Phiat will
go for third place. So the best is
yet to come forth, rfut, as of
Wednesday, here is the scoop.

SIGS 19 - MINISTERS
Stinging after two defeats, the
Crimson Tide hit the victory col-
umn in a big way, trouncing the
Preachers last Thursday afternoon.
With the Sig linei^r control all
afternoon, the hapless
gained only a few yards Jfrhile their
foe did most of what wast done.
Springfield Tullock, and Do
racked up the ppiptp- for^thq i
with all the scoreisX ^oming
passes after long drives, which
was the story of this most one-
sided game of the year.
The Ministers played their usual
scrapping defensive game, but vic-
tory was not to be denied to the

In the game for the “Little
Brown Jug”, The Crimsons con-
tinued their winning ways, besting
the fighting KA’s.
The Bigs drew first blood, count
ing on an aerial to Jack Walker,
after driving from the 35, where
Miller recovered a blocked kick.
Springfield gathered in another
from Hardy for the extra point,
giving the Sigs a 7 0 lead.
But the KA’s bounced back just
before the half, driving half the
field on Tommy Clark’s passes and
runs, until Pete Peterson finally
hit the range on Clark for a TD.
The conversion attempt failed,
leaving the KA behind, 6 7.
After the half, both sides drove
back and down the gridiron, hut
could not tally until Hardy final
ly hit Bob Tuldoek in the pay dirt
place. The conversion failed, but

fine guarding for the Zetas.
A D PI vs. TRI DELT
A smooth playing Tri Delt team
gave the ADPis another defeat
Tuesday afternoon. The Tri Delts

Pirates Overtake Lead
In Last Half Comeback
By JOHN CARDWELL
Southwestern News Department
The Southwestern Pirates rum-
bled from beneath the shadows of
defeat Saturday night in Marshall
to overtake the Baptists’ 9-point
lead and go ahead to win 19-9. It
was the fourth victory against
three defeats. They rolled up 351
yards with a ground-consuming
offense that scored three TD's
while stopping the Baptists cold.
The first half was completely
dominated by the Tigers from the
kickoff as they took the ball and
set up camp on the Pirate goal
The Tigers garnered two points
on a safety when their Gerald
Powell blocked an attempted Pi-
rate punt. Still in the first half it
was a 40 yard pass from Friemel
to Gene Grammar that finally gave
the Tigers their lone tally, and
Aubra Dean made tne extra point
good to put the Tigers in the lead,
The third and fourth periods
were a different story. A 43 yard
the Phi Mus’ Janice Powell and
Elaine Broadwell played a good
AD PI ..................
the game ended minutes later with
the Crimson tide ahead 13-7.
Clark and Pach paced the KA’s
behind excellent line work by
“Moose” Flynn and crew, while
Hardy and Springfield, oehind
hard working Duff and Hayes,
sparked the Sigs. This game, be
cause of its intensely offensive na-
ture, was among the season’s best,
as the KA’s contested until the
dying gun before the Sigs carted
off the jug.
So, next week tells the tale, and
f you want to see the standings
Ipettled, be out for the games of
your lives. Last week, I continued
my winning ways in predictions, so
if I last this week, I’ll have a per-
centage which will be sort of a
Anyway I take the unbeaten, un-
tied, unscored upon Barbs to edge
the unbeaten ui^led, PJRf
in Tuesday's fray for the season
pefln^tVltile the Phis' should
edge thp ^blisters Monday. And
in Friday’s grudge battle, the Sigs
should paste the Phis and take
over third place.
Famous last words ....
SOxWEONE DEAD OR
DO TURNIPS BLEED?
Last Tuesday night—Halloween
that is—some young lady in great
pain ’phoned the funeral home for
Kuykendall was the destination
but the mission was a failure.
When the ambulance got there no
sick, dead or lame young lady
could be found.
The ambulance and driver were
running around the campus like a
chicken with its he;id chopped off
looking for L. K. The driver
spotted J. Meitzen and asked him
to accompany ambulance and com
pany to L. K.
They went into the dormitqry
looking for blood, etc., and couldn’t
even find a turnip to squeeze.
That’s life for ya—You hear them
but can’t find them.

The Wise Owl
Miss Taylor, English and Educa-

informed the Megaphone staff that
tho owl she caught was not dis

though its dignity and sleep were
disturbed, not a feather was out
of place when it was last reported
flying on its way into the wide
Miss Taylor caught the owl when
notified of its presence in another
classroom and after some cursory
examination of the owl by her stu
dents, and vice versa, she released
it to continue on its own wise way
through life— alive.

run on the third play from scrim-
mage by Leo Chafin set the ball
on the Tigers’ seven-yard stripe.
But two consecutiv/ penalties mov-
ed the Pirates back to the 50 where
a fumble gave the Baptists the
A pass interception by the Pi-
rates’ Jack Dancer recaptured the
ball on the Pirates’ own 17-yard
line, from which point another
downfield scamper for 28 yards by
Chafin gained tne 50 yard stripe.
From this point the Pirates tallied
in two plays, a pass from Frank
White to Corky Adkins good for a
first down, and another pass from
Skippy Morse to John Schulze for
39 yards and TD on an optional
run pass play. The extra point at-
tempt by Buddy Frey was wide.
Two plays following the return
kick-off, another pass interception
by Curtis Ledbetter for the Pi-
rates gave Medley’s charges the
ball on their own 40. The Pirates
scored in three plays from this
point with a 36 yard scamper by
Skippy Morse which moved the ball
to the Tigers’ 11, a line drive by
White that moved it to the 4, and
a short, bullet pass from White to
Adkins for the TD. The extra point
attempt by Frank White was no
But the Pirates were not thru.
Mid-way thru the fourth period the
Southwestern team took over the
ball on their own one yard line,
where a punt of 59 yards from the
toe of the Tigers’ Gene Grammar
had rolled dead.
Back in deep punt formation
White executed “the play of the
game.” Standing deep in his own
end zone he whipped a pass to
Adkins that was good for 35 yards
and a first down. Two more short,
whip like passes from White to Ad-
kins moved the ball out to the Ti-
ger 45-yard stripe. Another pass
from White to Adkins was com-
plete, and Adkins rambled down
the sideline for the remaining yard-
age and his second score of the
night. White’s extra point attempt
was good for the last score made
by the Pirates.
A pass interception by Curtis Led-
better, who played one of the stout-
est pass defensive games exhibited
this season, again gave the Pirates
the ball, and they were in posses-
sion at the final gun.
Also commendable on pass de-
fense were Lawrence Cowley and
Gene White, who continually bat-
ted down The opponents’ aerials
and kept their pass completion av-
erage down to five completions in
19 trys in the second half. Crash-
ing tackles on the Tiger passer,
Friemel, by Castanon, Adkins and
Carlton Massey finally “froze” tjie
Tiger aerial attack completely fuid
gave the Pirates three intercep-
tions in the final half.
At the same time Frank White
was verifying his national ranking
of sixth among the passers of the
nation by completing 11 of 18 at-
tempts to push his record to 50
completions in 94 attempts. Stout
line play gave him time to accu-
rately spot his receivers and, plus
the passes of Morse, outstand-
ing freshman addition from Dick-
inson, and Myers, roll up 210 yards
The Pirates’ candidate for all-
conference honors. Bob Castanon,
showed Iris mettle time after time
by crushing tackles and key blocks,
and was ably supplemented by
Carlton Massey in this division.
Wendell Graves was a tower of
strength in the tackling depart-
ment and racked up, at one point,
five straight tackles.
The Pirate team in the second
half of the Baptist game Satur-
day night was the best team in
the conference, barring none. The
devastating suddenness and ease
with which they scored was their
top form to date this year and por
tends a high place in conference
standings at the season’s end.
