. n w-
Texas Conference May See Much Night Football Next Autumn
Possibility That Cowboys'
Home Games Will Be Held
Under Artificial Lighting
Not Certain Yet
Says Gib Sandef er
Night football may become a thing
of tho ordinary to Simmons and West
Tcxaa gridiron fans next year ac-
cording to Gib Sandcfcr athletic
business manager of tho Cowboys.
Whether this will be tho case is not
definitely known however.
At first It was thought that Brown-
wood would seo the first Tcxaa con-
ference gamo played under artificial
lights when tho Cowboys nnd Yellow-
jackets meet in their annual grudge
battlo thcro Otcobcr 25. Now how
ever it seems that Simmons may sec
several or all of her homo games
played at night
Night football is an innovation nnd
will bo especially unusual to Texas
fans though it is becoming ordinary
in tho north nnd cast.
Speculation as to tho probablo ef-
fects on tho gamo and tho gate re-
ceipts if this idea is put to uso in the
Texas Conference is expected to oc-
cupy nn important laco in tho minds
of fans of this section between now
