" THE ROUND-UP Perhaps the most thankless of any occupation is that of the newspaperman. But, gluttons for punishment that they are, the RCUND-UP staff ' s reporters go cheerfully about the job of telling people all about other people ' s busines in print each week. With the addition of a journalism major to the college ' s arts and science curriculum this year, the weekly campus newspaper takes on added importance. The widely-circulated ROUND-UP strives to be an informative, stimulating, entertaining weekly, and its editors do their level best to keep H, as its masthead proclaims, " the voice of the student body.

Founded by three enlisted men and two officers who signed the first statement of intentions in 1944, A.V.C. has grown to be the largest World War II veterans organization in the country. Particularly strong on college campuses, the organization had expanded to include approximately 110,000 members in almost 1000 chapters in the United States and abroad by January, 1948. The slogan " Citizens First, Veterans Second " indicates A.V.C. ' s emphasis on citizenship activities toward the building of a better world. A.V.C. started at New Mexico A M with a meeting of a small group of veterans brought together by three previous members, who realized the need of such an organization on the campus. Interest in A.V.C. grew and by the beginning of the second semester an extremely active and enthu- siastic group of 32 members was formed. In the future A.V.C. hopes to participate in beneficial campus activities such as its venture between semesters in a used book store, selling books at substantially reduced prices to all students.

Dear Uiss Smith: W iv I t ike this opportunity to tell you about my misgivings after playing the role of Judge of beauty at AAA! this Spring. I slept fitfully, although I had not eaten any cheese, althou i all the l in the house and the children in the street were quiet. I kept thinking of what I had done yesterday afternoon. You came to my house with a boxful of photogr »phs of the girls. Voet of them I did not know; some I recognized dimly. There were one or two full-length portraits, but most of the pictures were Just heads, some b au . ifully posed by experienced cameramen, some Just informal snapshots. Out of this m ii:e I tried hard to reconstruct e ch girl. It was in- possible. The best yardstick in this case, I decided, was the reg- ularity of features. It wis not what I instinctively wanted to do, bf iuj« I dc not believe that this alone constitutes true be»uty. I w . • ) see the whole girl, not retouched by in expert nor dis- torted by the outdoor wind nd squinting it the merciless New Uexico sunshine. In one C-ise I wis greatly attr icted by that certain li«a t comes into the eyes of one who is posing for the man in her Life] mother I was repelled by the coldness of the classical These feelings I tried to di Ti: Veil, «■ it in done is done, and I hope I haven ' t m»de, inadvertently, too m.»ny enemies. I w.s asked, " If you were choosing one of these lrls to sit for a portrait, which one would you choose " 1 I could not make a definite inswer; perhaps not any one of them. I would y w int to see them in the flesh it lu-ist several times; I would want to watch their movements; I would want to learn a little »bout their testes; | - lid »int to hear their voices. To me , all these factors re Ingredients that mike a girl beautiful or umttract- .• . Very sincerely your-.

Raymond Van Pelt AGGIES 7 McMURRAY 2i The New Meiico Aggies opened their pig- skin season by dropping their first tilt to the Mc- Murray Indians of Abilene, Teias. 22 to 7. The first nd only tally of the Aggies came in the firs ' three minutes of play when Jerry (Bruiser) Nuxum scampered around left end for 36 yards and a touchdown. The extra point was added by Bud Wil. born on a quiet opening plunge. The Indians scored in the second to bring the score to a 7 to 7 count and the time for the first half ran out. Aggie fans, eipectinq to see a reversal of form in the second half were stunned when Barry of the In- dians raced 95 yards on the kick off to score prac- tically untouched. The eitra point was not good. Two p were obtained by the McMurray team on a safety during the third quarter. Leading 1 5 to 7 the In- dians the final blow four minutes after the period began. Hoefer on a cutback off his own right tackle raced 34 yards to score Smith kicked the eitra point. Itri AGGIES 13 COLORADO STATE 14 Colorado State, although heavily outgained and outplayed, walked off with a 14 to 13 victory over the Aggies. The Aggies scored the first touchdown after three and a half minutes of the first quarter. Sparks scored on a right end sweep, good for eight yards, after setting it up by passing to Darbyshire. After a sustained drive in the second quar- ter, Nuium scored for the Aggies and Burke failed to convert, making the score 13 to in favor of the Aggies. With two minutes to go until the half, the Aggie reserves went in to spell the first stringers. Colorado State ' s safety man promptly returned a punt for 57 yards and a touchdown; the point was converted and the score at the half was Aggies 13, Colorado State 7. After the Aggies failed to score several times, the tide turned, and after capitalizing on a fumble, Colorado State scored on a pass from the eight-yard line and the extra point was good, making the score I 4 to I 3 in favor of Colorado. L Frank Burke Jay Rawlings Jack Darbyshire AGGIES 48 NEW MEXICO STATE TEACHERS COLLEGE After two losses in two games, the Aggies finally hit the win column. Scoring at will, the Aggies rolled up 408 yards by patting and running, while the Teaches had a lots of 37 yardl. The Teachers failed to make a first down even after Coach Curfman used all his reserves. Most of the touchdowns were set up by the hard running of Bruiser ' Nuium. Wilborn. and Derbyshire. Field General Rawlings was at his best and was the factor in the Aggie win. The line play was superb, due to the fine defensive playing of Linemen Curfman Kt i Thieme, Burke, Van Pelt. Scott, Spencer. Betten- court, and Menkes. ; AGGIES NEW MEXICO U. 20 Featuring a hard-running attack, the Uni- versity gained 310 yards by rushing to the 141 made by the Aggies. Krall and Comunei were the leaders of the University ' s attack, but they got help from Brock and Lou Cullen. The Aggies showed some hard and clever running backs — notably " Bruiser " Nu- zum and " Blackie " Sciamanna, but couldn ' t shake the Lobos. A drive early in the first quarter after recovering a block kick failed to help the Aggies. A field goal attempt by Burke from the 30-yard line was just under the cross bars and the only chance the Aggie had to score went to the four winds. The defensive play of Thieme and Keusch was a standout. Coach Huffman had the U team keyed up and after the first half they started to roll, to the discomfiture of team and Aggie rooters alike. Al Thieme Alvin Curfman Cal Hall I s -2 AGGIES 27 SUL ROSS 14 The Aggies, seeking their second win of tf«« season, unmercifully pounced on ffte Sul Ron team A duel between ffie Lobos Glen Beard and Aggie- man, " Bruiser " Nuium delevoped early when Beard gained 113 yards, including a 49-yard run which set up the Aggie third touchdown. Wilborn scored first on a left end run which covered 37 yards. Burke converted. Bud Atterbury scored on a line plunge after a 22-yard run by Sciamanna and a 32-yard pass from Darbyshire to Lowman. The Lobos tied the score early in ttie sec- ond half, but Nuium ' s long run and Bettencourt ' s interception of a pass completed the scoring. Burke missed only his last conversion, a three out of four record. The Aggies gained 378 yards by rushing and passing to a total of 209 by the Lobos. 1L . ■ • AGGIES 7 WEST TEXAS 34 Buffalo deception and power proved too much for the Aggies in the second half. The Ag- gies, after playing their best ball game of the year, folded in the second half and the Buffaloes scored three times after a first half lead of 14 to 7. Bettencourt ' s catch of Nuzum ' s heave into the end zone was the standout play of the game. Tough breaks, such as pass interference in the end zone, set up one of the West Texas touchdowns. An example of West Texas ' speed showed up when little Bill Cross. 138-pound speedster took off for a 68-yard iaunt for a touchdown. The running of Atterbury and Nuzum helped the Aggies but they were never able to reak loose for the important scores. The Buffaloes had 13 first downs to the Aggies ' 8, and the total yardage gained from scrimmage was 315 to 162. The Aggies had five tosses intercepted. Jack Hirten Bud Wilborn Gail Hungate AGGIES 12 TEMPE 33 Trailing 12-0 at the half Tempe came to life Ithanks to the official ) in the second half and scored five touchdowns to hand the Aggies an- other Border Conference loss to a 33-12 tune. With Nuium passing and Beftencourt and Wilborn re- ceiving, the Aggies made two quick touch downs. Starting the second half, things began pop- ping. Pass interference in the end zone and a bat- ted ball, which was taken by a Tempe receiver on the run. created two touchdowns. White convert- cd both eitra points; score — 14-12. Sam Le«is returned a punt 55 yards down the sidelines for the third score. It was a nice run eicep •- Aggie players were clipped and Mr. Lewis stepped out of bounds in the vicinity of the 20-yard line. Of course the officials failed to detect these slight misdoings and the touchdown was allowed. Through sheer desperation, the Aggies set up Tempe ' s r»- maining scores by passing from their own end lone which resulted in intercepted passe and subse- quently, touchdowns. We wui robbed for the Aggies, on rh» whole, played their best game against Tempe. AGGIES 26 FLAGSTAFF 6 Fighting to come out of the cellar, the Ag- gies, led by the ground-gaining of " Bruiser " Nu- lum and the passing of " Blue Jay " Rawlings, downed a sluggish Flagstaff eleven by a one-sided 26-6 score before an enthusiastic Homecoming crowd. Bob Schatrabel ' s calling of plays was with- out fault, for within a few minutes the Aggies had marched 70 yards and scored when Nuzum raced around left end to pay dirt. The passing combi- nation of Rawlings and Renken clicked for two touchdowns and in the closing minutes of the game, Nuzum scored again from the six-yard line after being set up by a pass from Steger to Lowman. Statistically, the Aggies gained 375 yards to III yards for the visitors. Aside from those mentioned, other backfield men turning in a good ball game were Atterbury, Wilborn, Hirten and Neale. Henry Sciamanna Phillip Neale John Scott AGGIES TEXAS MINES 26 The Muckers finally got even for that 14 to 7 defeat last year by the Aggies, but they knew they were In a ball game, for the score wa» no indication nf the type of ball that was played. Most of the scoring was done from midfield. The first score was set up by a fake run and a long pass from Smith to the right end who was knocked out of bounds on the two; Wendt two plays later, went over. Early in the second period, Hirten got off a beauty of a quick kick to the Mines 30 but Smith on a handoff from Bowden raced around right end with four-man-interference and sprinted 70 yards untouched for the second score. After a 30-yard run by Carnell Pug Ga- briel scored on a plunge and in the last stanxa Ga- briel scored again to brinq the score up to 26-0. The Aggies finally started rolling in the closing minutes, when the backfield of Rawlings, Hirten, Snow and Hungate started to click. Rawlings passed to Hirten twice for sub- stantial gains and then tossed a lonq heave to Bet- tencourt who was brought down by the safety man and that was the end of the game and the sea- son.

David Sharp, hiqh tcorinq Aqqie. »ii nem d a member o the Border Conference Rnl team With 269 points, Sharp led the Aggie scorers. Besides his scoring ability, Sharp was also a good defensive player and clever ball handler. DAVID SHARP Bill Hamm had another great year, scoring 250 points. With 44 points in 67 attempts, he was next to Sharp as a free throw expert. BILL HAMM LUi Craft ai a tteady and dependable guard »ho uted hit 6 feet 3 inchet of height to good advantage off the backboards. DAVID CRAFT Third high tcorer on the tquad. Hynet. tcored 717 pointt anc -o tat up innumerable tcoring opportunitiet for hit nnatet. Duck counted 21 pointt in one of the Minet gamet to account for one game tcoring hon DONALD HYNES A great defensive player and ball handler, Dick scored 158 points during the season. His long shots did much to loosen up opponents ' de- fenses that allowed his team mates to score from close in. DICK APODACA Playing his first year as a regular, Meerscheidt was an agressive, driving type of player who showed promise of some great years to come. STUART MEERSCHEIDT Stallingi came to A M with a fine high vchool record and in hit fir teaion here lived up to advance noticet. Sii feet tall and fait, hit ag- grettive play it certain to win him an opportunity for more play neit year. CLAYTON STALUNGS 1 The tallett man on the tquad. Joe made a capable tubttitute for Hynet at the center tpot n thould find Joe a much more polivhed player JOE PINO Smith did not play too much, but his percent- age of successful shots make him a fine prospect for next year ' s squad. LAWRENCE SMITH A substitute guard, Toribio showed himself to be fast, aggressive, and a good ball handler. Much can be expected from him with this year ' s experi- ence behind him. TORIBIO APODACA titt Thoma came to the Aggiet at an All State player from Lai Crucei. With more playing e«pr rience he it eipected to be a valuable addition to the team. ROLAND THOMAS Twice All Diitrict player from Hatch. ( «ii a member of the 1947 touth Al Star baiiet ball team A frrihman thu pa»t year, he »ill re quire teatoning for intercollegiate pUy. t BOBBY PORTER TENNIS Strengthened by several new players, the Aggie tennis team promises to be one of the best since the war. This year ' s team, sparked by Ed Hubbard and Bill Darby, playing No. I and No. 2, and two lettermen from last year, Ronald Bell and Dave Herring, should make a good showing in the conference. Newcomers on ttie team are Jerry Corcoran and Wallace Bollschweiler who set a fast pace for a berth on the lineup. Also on the team is Veteran Ray Sensanbaugher who played a steady game for the team in 1946, and shows plenty of flash for this year ' s matches. After matches with Texas Mines, New Mexico University, Tempe University, Texas Tech and New Mexico Military Institute the Aggie squad will climax their season by journeying to Tempe for the Border Conference meet. GOLF r • 4 V. ! lr r 1 H " i ■ Don Bartelt, who hails from Chicago, Illinois, is one of the three veterans of the 1947 squad. He has shown considerable improvement over his play of last year and generally holds down the number one spot. Con- sistent hard work has made him one of the outstanding golfers in the Border Conference. John Phillips and Ralph Tamm, who also saw action last year, play the number two and four positions respectively, and can always be depended upon to win points. Phillips, a comparative newcomer to the game, is noted or his long tee shots, and has shown remarkable progress. John is a Las Cruces product and Ralph calls San Diego his home town. Albert (Willie) Wilson, from Everett, Washington, is playing his first year of varsity golf, and has one of the most polished games of ttie team. He was one of the mainstays of his high school team and plays the number three position. Phil DeCillis. from York City, and Jack Steger of Abilene, Texas, will no doubt hold down regular berths next year. All they need is a little more experience. Jack has to divide his time between football and golf, but is rapidly developing a smooth swing. -s V ARCHERY THE GIRLS PLAY TOO BADMINTON SOFTBALL MELD Hf TENNIS et set ley re o H ;ops! CALL THE BAND The year l947- ' 48 has proven very successful for the New Mexico A M band, which boasts approximately 50 members, a drum major, and three majorettes. Harold Specht of the music department, is the director. . The band played at each football game, met the football team from out-of-town games, participated in the Homecoming parade, pep rallies. ROTC parades, and the square dancers parade. They have made several broadcasts and have given a series of concerts. Zo Elliott, noted American composer, conducted at one of the concerts. Two trips were made: One to the Aggie-Lobo game at Albuquerque and the other to the Mines game at El Paso.
