Cvlitorial The marines are back and have the situation well in hand, to say nothing of our soldiers, sailors and fliers who have had time to cast aside the uniforms of war and to don the regalia for operations-Sports. What a wonderful job they did-along with the help of some brilliant rookies just green from high school. After finishing the job the Hred, white and blue" called upon them to preform, they took firm grasp of the purple and white and held it high as they blazed a trail of breath-taking records for the postwar frontier of sports. First was football. Seventy-five fidgety fellows turned out-tall and short ones, heavy and light ones, green rookies and out of practice lettermen. What a jumble for the coaches, but soon things began shaping up until finally they were so well trained as to tie for first place in the Texas Conference. Second was basketball-a grand performance. Remember that TWC game in Bennett gym? What more can be said? Except to say that our cagers took second place honors in the Texas Conference. Next ticket up was composed of track, badminton, tennis, and baseball. Our banner-carriers for the purple and white literally flew through space as they leaped to the height of success by not only winning but by breaking previous records-witness the Kansas Relays. Thus is sketched what the 1947 sportsmen achieved, but what they are, and what it takes to make them that way, is more important, yet goes relatively unacclaimed. On the 1947 field were men with the responsibilities of families, men preparing themselves to be ministers of the gospel, men preparing for greater responsibilities in every walk of life, Christian men establishing Christian ideals. Not only were they building more perfect bodies. but of greater importance was their common objective in building more perfect souls. Spectacularity offers a big temptation to fall overboard in striving for a perfect soul as well as body, thus creating a challenge to each individual who turned out for whatever field of athletics he preferred. So, in tribute to these men for their brilliant record for the 1946-'47 season, let us salute them, not so much for what they did, but for what they ARE and REPRESENT. -The Sports Editor
