We hope that in viewing them you will have a frac- tion of the pleasure you found in creating them. CARROLL WARREN, Editor JOHN HENDON, Business Manager il M 1 L eaicaii icaucH There are two types of dedications: one that explains in glowing terms the sterling qualities of the dedicatee; the other a simple yet very effec- tive little synopsis of the person ' s accomplishments. This dedication is neither of these. The 1 949 Swas- tika is dedicated to Dr. Newman T. Reed, associate professor of English, with no words of explana- tion, because all of the many who know and respect him can fill in their own words of praise. Dr. Reed examines a airden catalog as he plans for a summer of weeds and hoeing and maybe some flowers. " You gotta show me " seems to be the attitude of Dr. Reed as Col, Chilton explains a wire recorder. DR. NEWMAN T. REED ' vv. % 3 ■ i 2 .; i. • • t:. :A ' jjf vi .fit ■ 1r a ?s ifo.taA». " ?

Born in Rock Hill, S, C, Mr. Boney was en- gaged in business in the East until he came to Las Cruces in 1932. In 1934 he became comptrol- ler of the college, the position he held until his death in January. Part of the successful administration of the business of the college as it grew to its present size was due to the fine talents and hard work of Ml Boney.

The duties of the council are to control rushing policies and activities of the fraternities. The sororities, having their own governing council, are honorary members. Dr. Sigurd Jo- hansen is faculty sponsor. This year the organization sponsored an all-Greek sing in December, the first to be held on this campus. It will be a yearly event in the future. In February, each organization presented a skit for the stunt night sponsored by the Chi Omegas. An all-Creek picnic in the spring wound up the Council ' s activities for the year.

Roy Bell and Terry Callahan filled the sports editors positions Ava Smith, Don West, and Bill Feather handled photographs, and Henry Schipman and Shirley Entrikin were art editors. This edition marked several innovations in the succession of New Mex- ico A M yearbooks Chief difference from previous issues is that the bulk of pictures were taken by student photographers, and a complete set of snapshots covered each phase of student activity and the student year. As you look through these pages you will be recalled to events of your year at A M The people are your friends, the sports shots retell events you ' ve seen, your parties, plays ... all these are to be found in this Swastika.

NEW MEXICO ASSOCIATED STUDENT COMMISSION TO THE STUDEHT BODY OF HEW MEXICO A. AMI) M. Dear Aggies; Another year In the history of New Mexico A. and M. For sixty years omr Alma Mater has progressed in the march of education and in so doing, has direct- ed the destiny of thousands of youth. A few of the may things that every student has taken part in during the year to advance New Mexico A. and M. and the state of New Mexico are: Pewriting of our far out-of-date constitution of the associated students. Reopening the drive to secure funds to build our memorial stadium. Organizing our progressive pep club. Setting up a budget under minimum and maximum limits. Extending the Aggie-Mines eportmanehlp trophy to a year-long program and starting the Aggie- Mines intermural field day. Sending out a group of students to contact the state senatqars and representatives of their districts and the appearing of a representative group of students before several state administrators and the state legislature for the purpose of raising the standard of salaries of our instructional staff of New Mexico A. and M. Form many of you Aggies this year will mean the end of your formal instruc- tion. May you always look back on your associations here with pleasure. And to you, who will be returning, may you work for a better and greater " Aggieland " in the coming years. To all of you I wish to extend my personal appreciation for that spirit of co-operation which has characterized my year as your president. As the year closes there goes with each of you my beet wishes. Sincerely, John R.

But when photographs are the only given data upon which to base a judgment, the pitfalls multiply Especially when the photographs vary greatly in size, pose, lighting and degree of retouching. Aside from the usual liabilities involved m all judging, such as the torments of indecision and the grim certainty that, however sincerely arrived at, one ' s final selections are bound to cause sharp disappointments, this contest presented an additional hazard, of which my professional activities have made me keenly aware Having painted for Time more than two hundred and fifty portraits, with only photographs to work from, I have come to realize how surprisingly misleading a photograph can be. Accord- ing to an old adage, " the camera never lies. " Well, perhaps it does not lie in reporting what it has seen, — but there are times when it certainly has defective eyesight. My experience has taught me that it is no easy matter to determine from photographs exactly what a person looks like. Time and again in pursu ng a likeness, with twenty or more photographs of the same man spread out before me, I have found myself confronted by at least a dozen different people With these handicaps in mind, the class will, I hope be charitable in passing judgment on the judge and believe me when I say it was really a tough assignment. A great variety of factors influenced my selections. If the head was in profile, I had to try imagining it in full-front A beautiful nose would be offset by a less beautiful chin Hair arragement would be weighed against mouth or eyes — or perhaps beautiful eyes against the contours of the lower face Again, mere perfection of features might lose out to some inner loveliness, shining out through less perfect features. Spiritual grace, tenderness of feeling, sensitivity, intelligence all played their parts. The toughest moment came when I had brought the group to be re- photographed down to thirteen. You had asked for only twelve. One had to be sacrificed. By then I was feeling more like an executioner than a judge, — and every one of the second-choice none looked too good to reject outright. That was a real dilemma, with no way out but straight amputation. I even held them up to a mirror, hoping their reversed images would reveal some decisive asset or liability, previously overlooked. It was like a parent having to disown a daughter. But finally the foul deed was done — and I hurriedly wrapped them for mailing, lest I weaken and again find myself in the foils. Perhaps all this will give you some idea of what a contest judge goes through. My only hope is that, upon my return to Las Cruces this spring, I ' ll not be waited upon by a committee of student (or parent) Vigilantes.

Missing from tlic Agijie lineup were such veteran post-war players as Jerry " Kruiser " Nuzuni, Jay Rawlins, Frank " Peanuts " Hurke, Alvin Cnrfman, Frank Bettencourt, Cliet Menkes, Bud Alterbury, Bud Wilborn and Al Tliienie. Tlicse boys liad formed tlie nucleus of the first two Ag.uie post-war footl)all teams, hi ihis first n me tlie Aggies were not only starting out with a new hneu|) for the most iiart, but also with a new football coacli, aui;hn Corley. The Aggies new mentor was no stranger to Aggieland, but he did fin l upon his arrival that lie had a terrific rebuilding job to do. In this his first game at the helm, that objective hit him between the eyes. Against the Lumberjacks the inexperience of the Aggies was the most important factor in their loss as tliey went down to a 13-7 defeat after tlie had jiassed up Tunncnius opportunities to scivre throughout the ball game. Louis Sanchez provided the lone Aggie spark when he took off on a 67 yard touchdown jaimt in the tliird (|uarler. His run carried him through the whole I ' lat staff team. Cal Hall pulle l out of his guard position to kick the ] oinl after. The Aggies found big Vince Cisterna, Lumberjack end, all that his press notices had said that he would be. Besides being big he was fasty, shifty and very deceptive, as he pulled down many passes that seemed to be long gone. Hirten got off some very fine kicks in this the opening game. Jack Stcger, Phil Neale and Carl Renken, along with Louis Sanchez, pro- vided the Aggies with their offensive strength. In the forward wall it was the experienced play of Ray Van Pelt, Joe Dean and Dave Kcusch that kept the Aggies in the ball game until the very last. Fumbilitis, which was to cause the A M lads trouble throughout the season, reared its ugly head in tliis the Aggie pigskin inaugural for 1949. ' » A .« vv . " A rough and ready Colorado A M eleven mauled the State College lads in this game which was played at Fort Collins to the tune of 40-6. From the opening whistle, when the Aggies fumbled the kickoff, till the last minute of play, Coach Corley ' s pikskin crew never got near enough to pay dirt to score. In the last minute of play, Gene Spencer talked a flustered Ram substitute quaterback into the ball on an attempted pass play. Gene ambled across the goal line from the Ram 8 yard line for the score. The try for the point was wide. The wliolc Ram team looked good in this outing as they did everything perfectly. For the Aggies, Gail Hungate was the offensive spark through his passing and runniitg until he was injure l. His loss i)roved to be one of the fatal blows in the next few games. Throughout the game the weak, undermanned .Xggie line was never able to coi)e with the big, fast, hard rushing Ram line led b Thurman McGraw and Don Mullinson. In this contest, the Colorado Aggies lived up to their press clippings and then some. They turned three pass interceptions plus two State College fumbles into five touchdowns which proved to be more than enough for the winning margin. Returning to State College after two losses on the road, the point hungry Aggies eleven had things pretty much their own way as they smashed to a victory over a hard fighting, but undermanned Fort Bliss Army team. In the early moments of the first (|uartcr Mirinianian took a soldier punt on his own 12 yard line and then proceeded to go some 88 yards to i)aydirt to give the Aggies their first score in the ball game. Mel Harris pushed across the second t. d. when he went around his own left end from the twelve yard line. In the second quarter a pass from Jack Hirten to Roland Thomas plus a fumble which was recovered by Gene Spencer accounted for an- other Aggie score. The Fort Bliss scoring came as a result of an intercepted pass plus a 75 yard run off tackle by Carl Davis, speedy soldier back. Two passes, from Hirten to Steger, gave the A M team its fourth six pointer. Shortly after this, Carl Renken intercepted a soldier pass on their 45 yard line and he went all the way to score. Cal Hall pulled out of the line to kick the e.xtra points of which he made three out of the five. In the line Spencer, Thomas, Dean, ' an Pelt, .Stringer, Keusch, Hall and Walden showed up very well. Steger, Hirten, Renken, Harris, Neale and Mirinianian were among the outstanding backs. ' ? .An avengeful Sul Ross Lobo eleven, handed llie .Aggies their fourth loss in five starts as they piled up 47 points to 12 for the Aggies. They scored on passes, rushes and through a blocked kick as their undefeated football machine continued on its merry way. Sul Ross turned out later to be one of the undefeated teams in the nation. For the .Aggies, their first scoring of the game came about on a screen pass from Jack Hirten to Art Snow, which was good for 28 yards plus six points. In the final (|uarter, Louis Sanchez went off tackle on a 35 yard sprint to paydirt. This was on the same play that he scored on at Flagstaff. The Aggies missed both tries for the point after. The injuries suffered in the Fort Bliss game hurt the Aggie chances considerably. Ray Van Pelt didn ' t make the trip to Alpine along with Dave Keusch. Many of the other fellows made the trip, but were unable to see much service. ' n ' s ' I ' hc injury liililU-il Xcw Mexico Akrics traveled to All)u |iicr(nie to meet tlieir L ' niveisity " cousins " in an attempt to gain their first Border Conference win of tlie year. However, Coach I ' erl Huffman and Iiis ] ol)0 warriors luid rlifferent ideas as the inflicted a 60-0 loss on the hapless AS:M ladv Field general Jerry McKown was the big gun for the Lobos as he directed them to victory. A whole host of University backs roamed the gridiron almost at will as they scored touchdown after touchdown. On the other side of the field. Coach Corley had to put in a makeshift lineup for this traditional Lobo-Aggie battle. Many of the starters were physically below par and through necessity they were forced to play tnost of the contest. This was the ninth straight victory in a row for U. N. M. The last Aggie stand on the top was in 1 .?7 when they administered a . -0 shel- lacking to tlic AlluKHiennie lads. After being on the short end of the score in their first four out of five outings the Aggies bounced back into the win ccilnnin as they trounced Highlands University, 26-0. Due to injuries, Dave Keusch, Milton (iihner. .Art Sftow and D.ive Woddard sat out this game on the bench. Two scoring jaunts by Mirimanian gave the .Aggies their first twelve ])oints, while Steger and Spencer added the other two t. d. ' s. Steger ' s scoring came as a result of a lateral from Jack Hirten while Gene Spencer took a pass from Hirten to score his si. pointer. Jack Conn .really came into his own in this game which was his best of the year at left end. Phil Neale an l .Vlcl Harris did some fine defensive work in backing up tlie line, while in the line the wlnde crew performed admirably, with Spencer, an I ' llt, Strin.uer, Dean. C ' cum, Thomas and Parkman leading the way. Coach Eddie Doherty ' s high flying Tenipc " Sun Devils " disappointed a capacity Homecoming assemblage as they teed off on tlie Aggies, . 2-7. Doherty, a former pupil of Frank Leahy of Notre Dame fame, ex- hibited the best T-formation seen by the Aggies all season. Wilford " Whizzer " White proved to be the big difference in the game. He not only hit paydirt himself, but he set up many scoring ojiportunities for his team mates. The Aggies played their hardest ball game of the year as they went down to defeat. This happened to be one of those games in which the score doesn ' t tell the real story. Particularly in the line the play was vicious and hard fought all through the game. The most amazing part of the game lies in the statistics. Tenipe gained a total of 435 yards to 307 for our side. Tlie had but 17 first downs to 16 for the Aggies. We completed 14 passes out of 24 attempts while Tcmpe liit but 10 out of 24. This was a case of Tempe making the must out ol their op]iiirtunities. Tlic statistically iiotciit New Mexico Agjjics revertcil liuck into the win column as tlicy l)rol c out with a rash of touclidowns to defeat Fort Hays of Kansas, 27-14. Coach Corley ' s lads c .iiipiK-.l nnich the anie offensive record that they did against Tenii i-, liut tins lime they .ashed in on tlie breaks. Fort Hays scored first as they converted an Aggie fumble into a touchdown. Later they i)assed for anotlier six pointer. These two ' 1. LX ' s plus two conversions gave them a 14 iioint advantage early in the ball game. Phil Neale went over from the six a little later to start tlic . ' i.S; t scoring ami tlicn he plunged over from the four after Hirteii had hit Thomas with two passes and Mel Harris liad gone for ten. Early in the third quarter, Hirten passed to Roland ' iliomas who lateraled to Mirimanian. The play covered 67 yards with Mirimaniau scoring. • " ' % ' ' The Aggies did it again; they fumbled on the third play of the game, Western State recovered and a few minutes later they plowed over for the first score of the day. So went the rest of the game. Three touch- downs for the State team came as a direct result of Aggie fumbles; four from intercepted Aggie passes; the other two came from two of their own passes. .Mthough the Aggies as a team were in a sluinp, two of their team mates, Ray Van Pelt and Roland Thomas, sparkled at their respective positions. " Rusty " was a tower of strength on tlie defense while Roland was responsible for two of the best plays seen on Quesenberry Field this year. Green, State ' s deceptive halfback, went for fifty yards down to the Aggie thirty yard line where it seemed that he was off for a touch- down, but Thomas came up from behind ami hurdled two .State players as he brought Green down, thus staving off a touchdown. Later Roland caught one of Jack Hirten ' s passes and racc I 65 yards to paydirt as he outdistanced the whole State team. The game, regardless of the score, was a thriller from the offensive viewpoint, since both teams filled the air with passes all afternoon. State threw close to 20 shovel passes during the game .... inany of these covering more than 20 yards in the air. 4 JC J- " " r. . 4 . % ffr. % •, « 4. X ' ?2u|| a . i M s f GENE SPENCER was a member of the great freshman football team of 1941 that included besides himself, such grid greats as Jerry " Bruiser " Nuzum, Frank " Peanuts " Burke, Bud Wilborn and Ray " Rusty " Van Pelt Before that he lettered at Hobbs high school in all four years as a member of the football team and won a position on the all- New Mexico eleven. Besides this he won se»en other monograms in basketball, track and baseball Here at New Mexico A£rM he has lettered in all his three years on the varsity. As an end his play has always commanded respect throughout the conference. His specialty on the gridiron has been on the defense where he has played a hard rushing deceptive game. Gene will be passing from the scene in June since he has amassed the required hours to graduate. Gene Spencer Cat Hall CAL has been one of the El Paso representatives of the squad for the last three years. His play has never been on the spectacular plane so that he has, at times, been unnoticed as far as his value to the team is concerned. In his first two years on the Aggie football squad he held down a first string position beside the colorful Frank " Peanuts " Burke. Burke ' s colorful play held the limelight whil Cal continued to play his efficient but uncolorful type of ball. This past year injuries beset Cal as it did so many other mem- bers of the squad so that he never reached the heights set for him by his many admirers. Since he is a member of the June graduating class Cal has payed his last ball game for the Aggies on the gridiron. His play will, however, be remembered for some years to come. JACK is another of the boys that Coach Corley is counting on next year to put the Aggies back in the Border Conference running tor top honors. Although the Aggies as a team didn ' t do too well this sea«on, Jack ended up in the numlier four spot among passers in conference competition, in pass completions. Hirten completed 44 tosses out of 86 attempts for a percentage of .512 ... six of his aerials were for touchdowns. He is also known for his kicking since he got off two boots this past year which traveled more than 70 yards from the line of scrimmage. On the defensive end of the game Jack has always been able to hold his own on the gridiron. In the Mines game this past fall Jack, along with Phil Neale and Bill Walden, was one of the few Aggies who seemed to be in the game that day. He set up the long Aggie score through his running and passing. Jack played his high school all in Valley Stream, Long Island. He also played on the 66th Infantry Division and the 42nd Rainbow Division teams, overseas. Since this is his junior year in school Jack has one year of varsity ball left here at Aggieland. J ' Ik Jack Hirten Ray " Rusty " Van Pelt ig»- " RUSTY " has been one of the main reasons for any fame that may have been heaped on the Aggie football teams of the past three years. He was a hij h school sensation as a member of the Clayton New Mexico high school team. This is proven by the fact that he lettered all four years as a member of the football team and m three of these years he earned a letter on the basketball squad Ray made the all-New Mexico eleven in two of his four years. Here at Aggieland, Ray has always been a quiet mannered indi- vidual off the field, but on the field of play his play has always been of the rough and ready type. In 1947 this type of game earned him a second string berth on Joe Williams ' second string Little All- America team of that year. In his three post war years here he has lettered in every year. Since he will be departing from the campus in June through gradua- tion he has finished his career as an Aggie gridder. i rV f GAIL is another of the many fine athletes that have come to the Aggies from Clovis. While in the Clovis high school he lettered in both basketball and football In the 1946 season he made the South All-Star e ' even. After his first season with the Aggie football team Cail decided to forego basketball in favor of football, since he didn ' t feel that he could do lustice to both In his first season here he ran into some rough competition for the halfback spot since he found his fellow townsman, Jerry " Bruiser " Nuzum firmly entrenched in that position Last fall Gail really started to come info his own in the Colorado Aggie game when an injury to his hand laid him low for most of the season. During his time on the Aggie squad, Cail has been one of the best defensive backs on the team His defensive play alone could win him a berth on the squad Along with this he is a very fast and deceptive runner. Since triis is his junior year of college Gall will be taking his last f ' ing at college competition next fall. Gail Hungate Bill Walden BILL is one of the younger element that Aggieland followers are hoping will bring back the Aggie type of team of old. He is hard, clean fighting, team ball player that always does his job. In 1946 Bill was a member of the Las Cruces high school team. Because of his play that year he was chosen as a member of the 1946 State All Star team Since arriving on the scene here at Aggieland Bill has not only increased in physical size, since he is now up around the 195 pound mark, but his play has progressed proportionally. He is one of the key figures in Coach Corlcy s plans for improving next fall on the record made by this years team Bill has played both the guard and tackle positions for the Aggies. Since he seems to be more at home at tackle and because of his sue it is expected that when next season rolls around he will be out in front as far as that position is concerned With these last two years of competition behind him. Bill should prove to be one of the better tackles in the conference, come next fall. li Quoting from the Round-up of December 1st, " With the entry of basketball into the A M sports picture, a new look of optimism has come to the front. " " The Aggies will be paced by veteran players this season so they look good to place in the top bracket of the Border Confer- ence. " This is the way that it looked to us at Aggieland at the beginning of the season last fall. What happened? Well, we had experienced players returning but so did the rest of the conference .... a few teams also had some new material returning this year. One of the biggest factors in the end of the season when the pace begans to tell was that we had no adequate experienced players in reserve. Much the same as the football team the cagers were also beset by a late season in- jury jinx, which hit such players as Bill Hamm, Dick Apodaca and Dave Sharp. " Duck " Hynes was also forced to leave the team mid-way in the season. In Border Conference competition the Aggie quintet came up with four wins as they dropped 12 games to their opponents. They registered wins over Texas Mines, New Mexico University and Tempe at Williams gym; while the only team they could beat on a foreign court was Arizona State of Tempe. On the road the Border Conference jinx hexed the Aggies more than most of the other teams in the league. The cage squad will lose Dave Sharp, Bill Hamm, Stuart Meerscheidt, Donald " Duck " Hynes, and Joe Pino through graduation. One of the bright lights with the picture is that Aggie Fresh squad which will be coming up to play varsity competition next season. In their game against the Chihuahua All-Stars before the season opened the Aggies ran into a strange situation since the referees couldn ' t understand english, while the Aggies couldn ' t understand the rules which the officals injected into the game. While playing Flagstaff on their court the Aggies ran into another queer incident when water from melted snow began seeping in on the gym floor. This caused Dave Sharp ' s injury which hampered his play for the rest of the season. At the beginning of the second semester it looked as though the Aggies were finally going to start moving as they beat Texas Mines, New Mexico University and Tempe in a row. How- ever, Flagstaff, Hardin-Simmons and Arizona inflicted losses on the Aggies in quick succession, to finish out the Aggie season. In non-conference play the cagers won games each from Silver City Teachers, New Mexico Military Institute, Eastern New Mexco Greyhounds and Abilene Christian. The Aggies lost to the Greyhounds on their court and they also dropped two games on a road trip to Chihuahua against their All-Stars To climax the season Dave Sharp made the Border Conference 2nd team. Under the tutelage of Coach George McCarty, the Aggie freshman stock went in two different ways when the football record is compared to the basketball record. The football team didn ' t win a game, while the Aggie cage quintet finished the ' r season with but 3 losses in regular sea- son play. The football team on the other hand could not gain a win. Against the Arizona University yearlings, the frosh came within 35 seconds of tying the game as they were tied with the University lads with 35 seconds to go. The U boys scored a touch- down, however, to go out in front 13-7 and so they left our frosh without even a tie to boast about. 1 DAVE SHARP was undoubtedly the oustanding Aggie basketball player during this past season. This was very much in evidence as Dave was voted the " Greatest Aggie " during the recent Spring elec- tions. He has been in the spotlight before since he was selected on the Kansas AAU All-Tournament team while in the service. Locally he made the Border Conference 1st team in 1948 and he made the 2nd team in 1949. Before coming to Aggieland Dave played a year of Freshman ball at Utah State. He hails from Logan, Utah and starred on the high school team there. Dave is a senior so he has played his last game for the Aggie cagers. Dave Sharp Stuart Meerscheidt STUART MEERSCHEIDT is a local boy who made good. During the 1947 season he played all his ball on the Intramural league at State College. The next season, 1948, he was a member of the varsity and he broke into the line up midway in the season. This past year has found him one of Cach Gunn ' s regulars. His hard driving, never-say-die type of ball play ing has made him one of the most respected men in the conference. Although he has another year of eligibility left he has played his last game, as he graduates in June. TORBIO APODACA having played his high school ball with Anthony high school, Torbio has served his second season on the Aggie varsity. With two more years to play. Coach Gunn is figuring very heavily on him to fill in some of the gaps caused by graduation. Torbio Apodaca Donald " Duck " Hynes DONALD " DUCK " HYNES has held down the Aggie center for two seasons plus most of this past schedule until he was forced to leave the Aggie lineup because of military duty. He is another local lad since his home is on the campus here at State College. This was his last year of play since he is a senior. During his time on the Aggie squad he has been a big factor in a lot of their wins. One thing for sure " Duck " has never been known to lack in the art of hustling. ROLAND THOMAS earned his letter with the football team last fall and he then proceeded to go out for basketball so that he was a two letterman this year. Since he stands well over six feet in height he is expected to fill in the Aggie pivot spot next year since there will be no other returning letterman for that position. Roland also hails from State College and he p!ayed his high school ball with Las Cruces, making the All-State team in 1947. Roland Thomas Joe Pino JOE PINO has been one of the best liked ball players on the Aggie basketball team for the last three years although he never reached the greatness that the fans had hoped he would. Lack of play seemed to hurt him in first year of play. In the 1948 season he started to see some action late in the season and he improved his play to whore he became one of the big factors in the late season drive of the Aggies that year. Since Joe is a senior he has wore the Aggie colors for the last time, hie has lettered in each of three years with the Aggie cage team. His home is in Gallup, New Mexico. CLAYTON STALLINCS was one of the first of the younger set to break into the varsity lineup this year when slacking play and injuries beset the Aggie cagers. He was All-State in 1947 with Carlsbad and the next season he was a member of the Aggie quintet. This past season saw him show some of the play that is expected to bring top honors in Border Conference play. He saw enough enough action so that he lettered this past season. Clayton Stallings Richard " Dick " Apodaca RICHARD " DICK " APODACA has been one of the favorites here at Aggieland during his tenure on the Aggie teams. In 1946 he played on the football team as well as on the basketball team. When the next year rolled around Dick gave up football and devoted all his time to the cage game. He has always been regarded as one of the best guards in the Border Conference. Dick has one more year of play which should be his best yet on the Aggie cage squad. BILL HAMM first put in his appeirance here at Aggieland in the Spring ot 1947 when he joined a floundering team to inject a spark that found them upsetting some of the more highly favored teams in the conference. Though he had missed the early games of the season since he started school in the Spring semester. Bill finished among the top scorers in the Border Conference. Bill was an All-Ohio center while in high school in 1940 and 1941. In his first year here he made the Border Conference second team in 1947. He gradu- ates this coming August. Bill Hamm Bobby Porter BOBBY PORTER is one of the new Aggies since he came in with the group that saw the young high school graduate replacing the veter- ans who had returned from war service. Porter played with the South All-Stars in 1947. In the 1946-1947 season he made the All-district team because of his play with Klatch High School. Bobby still has two years left with the Aggies so that he still has time to make his presence felt in the Border Conference. I Under the tutelage of Coach George McCarty, the Aggie freshman stock went in two different ways when the football record is compared to the basketball record. The football team didn ' t win a game, while the Aggie cage quintet finished the ' r season with but 3 losses in regular sea- son play. The football team on the other hand could not gain a win. Against the Arizona University yearlings, the frosh came within 35 seconds of tying the game as they were tied with the University lads with 35 seconds to go. The U boys scored a touch- down, however, to go out in front 13-7 and so they left our frosh without even a tie to boast about. The frosh season wasn ' t without some accomplishment, since Coach McCarty has been grooming these boys for varsity competition next year. Such former freshman stars as Joe Langford, Lefty Pandlides, A! Shelton, Bill Mounce, Les Paul, Ray " Junior " Apodaca, Bob Myatt, Bernie Menkes, Ross Manning, Don Hogue and Allan Gray are expected to have a great deal to say about who gets the varsity jobs at a good many of the different positions next season. This year ' s freshman cage quintet has been named by many as the outstanding first year team in A M history. They ran up a total of 1229 points in regular play to their opponets 763. In tournament play they competed in the local and state AAU tournaments. The yearlings lost one game in five and scored 348 points to their foes 188. The later AAU game marked the only time during the season that the frosh did not avenge a previous loss. The team had hardly any spot that might be called weak on the team. They boasted such players as Jimmy Viramontes from Las Cruces, who ended up with a season total of 232 points and Charles Clements from Hobbs, who ended up with the team high as he amassed a total of 234 points. At the guard positions Ray Apodaca and Jimmy Crouch set up the many frosh scoring plays, while they were aided by George Wilder, Al Budenholzer and Otis Davis One of the deadliest on the frosh team was present in the presence of Jimmy Blevins. Bill Dunn and Lawrence Ham- ilton alternated at the center spot most of the season. They ended up with identical scoring records for the season with 69 points apiece.

Coach Jimmy PaMon (Not Pictured) Claaie liack learn Last year ' s track team, unable to overcome the handicaps of a late start and poor field equipment, tied the West Texas State for last place in the Border Conference. Although no meets have been held this year, it isn ' t too early for Coach Lem Pratt to predict a much better season His confidence is inspired on the basis of a fine squad of thinclads. Veteran trackmen from last year: Jack Hirten, high jump and hurdles; Ruben Gomez, half mile; Manuel Gonzales, mile and half mile; Adrian Farmer, 440 and high jump; Jack Conn, 440 and hurdles; Roy Bell, mile and 2 mile; Stuart Meerscheidt, hurdles and broad jump; Dave Wood- ward, javelin; Richard Lambirth, javelin; Willie Willard, mile and 2 mile. Those out for the first time this year, but already show- ing promises are; Howard White and Andy Rutledge, sprints; Will Sharp, mile; Jack Allen, Bill Thurmond and Clayton Stallings, hurdles and pole vault. Besides these. Coach Pratt has a Freshman team which he considers the best he has ever coached. The outstanding members of the Freshman squad are: Dick Tanner, hurdles; Milton Huston, John Patterson, Hobart Boyer, E. T. Boble, Jim Cox,, sprints and broad jump; John Heizer, Jack Brown, half mile; Bill Dunn, LeRoy Lowe, discus and shot put; Marvin Diplock, javelin; and Reggie Anderson, high jump.
