We have worked hard and long to make this book different and yet portray life at A M in such a manner as will make you remember this phase of your life for years to come. We have tried to cover as many phases of campus life as time permitted. Sometimes it was a pretty rugged life--plan- ning and replanning, and then burning the mid- night oil to meet the deadlines. Thanks to all the students for your patience, and we sincerely hope you like the yearbook Vke ici " il, n»fT»fcmw» I iiiijiiiifc II Hutu MISS MARGARET O ' LOUGHLIN -o 7. ep4 -;.0. , the the tir ' : ' enf. , o?n e 1 in, Sar: -1 . 9 6 - ' to ' nif e fa Sije -.»,.

All Aggies are saddened at the death of their comrades, but they are indeed proud that the deaths were accompanied by the highest honor. We miss the smiles, the pranks, and all the characteristics which made us love our fallen comrades. We have not forgotten them, they will never be forgotten. They have notdiedinvain, butwith glory in the defense of those things which this nation holds dear-- freedom and the importance of the individual. t Gal, l4Jdllam nxzM flcpiAi r v f95f mA.

W. BRANSON About A M NEW MEXICO COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE AND MECHANIC ARTS OTFICE OF THE PRESIDENT STATE COLLEGE, NEW MEXICO January 19, 1953 TO THE STUDENT BODY: The university which we call the New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts is, and for sometime has been, in a state of transition. For the first fifty years of its existence the College was a little local institution with only a few hundred students mostly from Dona Ana County and nearly all from New Mexico. Today there are students on the camnus from nearly every state in the union and from several foreign countries. Along with the rapid growth in enrollment in recent years, there has been, since about 19A0, a corresponding growth in the physical plant. So the transition has been from the small local institution of former years to a cosmopolitan institution no longer in the small college class. The transition also includes elanents entirely apart from growth in the number of people and buildings on the campus and in the counties of New Mexico which make up what we call the College, It includes a conscious effort to improve the educational program by constant study and revision of the curricula in the different schools. It includes an attempt to provide better and more interesting living conditions for students. It includes the beauti f ication of the campus and of the approaches to the campus. It includes the expansion and improvement of the services to the people of the state and the country through the experiment station, the extension service and the other divisions of the College. It includes a better student body to match the better facilities. All of this means not only a larger institution but also a better institution. Sijic erely urs , DiAcerely urs, J. w.

AL DICARLO, Fellow with the Best Line DIANA SHERWOOD, Spring Carnival Queen Vamti Mr Cartoonist E. Simms Campbell, when 11 years old, painted a " Get Your Turkey Here " sign for a grocer in Chicago. That was in 1920, and Campbell has had few turkeys since then. He worked- -and worked hard- -before he got a job as a commercial artist. In 1928 he achieved what few cartoonists do--a Pulitzer prize. He went to New York City and the big time just as the Great Depression arrived. Nothing daunted, he began drawing, first for Judge and Life, then New Yorker, Ballyhoo, Saturday Evening Post, Cosmopolitan, Redbook, and Colliers. Campbell developed the series of cartoons, " The Sultan ' s Harem " , for Esquire, and he still draws for Esquire. He also draws a daily cartoon " Cutie " for the King Features Syndicate. Campbell was born in St. Louis, Mo. His family moved to Chicago, and later he moved to New York City. Now he resides in an eight-room fieldstone house in Westchester County, New York. He is married and has a 12-year-old daughter. SiM M s Ca S A w A1 i Or f V PR R o A D " " ' y ...ej-e ? " ere f f t fo„ " ite beau Yp " " e o.

Un- der Coach Joe Coleman, who is in his second year of coaching at Aggie- land, the young Farmers won 2, dropped 6, and tied 1 during the regular season. In conference play, the Maroon and White took 1, lost 2, and gained that all-important tie witli Texas Western. Meeting Howard Payne in the season opener, the Aggies had no trouble downing the Yellow - Jackets, 20-7. Jimmy Hayes opened the season strongly by scoring two of the touch- downs via the rushing route. cy Kenneth heeler Jim Bradley Arizona ' s 60-man squad proved too much for the small Coleman crew and swamped them, 62-lZ. Al DiCarlo and Lonnie Estes did the scoring for the outmanned New Mexicans. In an old rivalry at Albuquerque, the Lobos of the university came back after a 0-0 score at half-time to tally 23 points in nine minutes and shut out tiie Aggies completely. Playing out of town for the third straight week, the Aggie met an aroused team of West Texas State Buffaloes and dropped a 45-7 verdict to the Texans on their homecoming day. , ■amft ' i Q in 11 ffli Harry Wille Joe Blanchard V ' = fi t JEtf ' ri - Bill Irvine Gerald Matthews MINERS TIE AGGIES ON HOMECOMING After a two week rest the Aggies came back powerfully and forced a highly favored Miner team to settle for a 20-20 tie. Before a capacity homecoming crowd the inspired Farmers led all the way, never being headed or tied until the last three minutes of the contest. Jinnmy Hayes, Al Di Carlo, and Jimmy Bradley scored for the Aggies in that order, Hayes on a run of 76 yards. The brilliantly playing Maroon team had the full house of fans standing up through the entire last quarter. An unimpressive 33-9 win from Arizona State of Flagstaff was next on the agenda as the coaches cleared the bench in the second half of play. A second half let-down, noticeable in several of the Aggie contests, took effect again as the McMurry Indians chopped a 27-14 win from the locals. It was the last home game of the season. n4 John Edd Giles W - V 4, C. ' Larry Martin .; 1 O 4 9 J f " ir? Alfredo Cordova Al DlCarlo John Young Paul Miller At Wichita Falls, Texas, Midwestern University took advantage of the second half fade to gain a 28-6 homecoming victory. Dick Holmes scored for the Aggies on a beautiful 89 -yard pant return. A sparse crowd in a snow-filled stadium in Wichita, Kan. , watched the University of Wichita score twice in the opening minutes, then bog down before a stiffened Aggie defensive team until the last six minutes. Until then the score was 13-7, with Charlie Sanford scoring the Aggie six-pointer. The final minutes proved too much for the Aggies as six inches of snow and extreme cold took their toll. The Shockers scored three quick TD ' s to make the final score 34-6. With 28 lettermen returning to the gridiron next year, all of them with much experience, a success- ful season should be forthcoming. ■ ' 4 •imm ' tmttmm ' uv xana ' timuikt John Harold Salvo Jacobs Lonnie Dale Estes Gantz Bill Calvin Ward Klement Henry Richard Clopton Barrett J immie Hayes .0, Jt C K , ' ' SW ssKT if ' •miKK C James Brown Ed Boykin Leon " Pop " Shows Athletic Department Storekeeper James Frye Ed Brininstool c;r Dalton Byerley Charles Broyles Jesus Esparza Ik .M r r JOE T. COLEMAN, A M ' s head football coach, came to the Aggies from Odessa, Texas, where he coached the always -powerful Odessa High School team since 1938. His teams there won six district championships, five bi-district titles, and the st;ate championship in 1946. A graduate of TCU, he earned three varsity letters as a quarterback and was captain of the 1934 team as a senior. He played on the undefeated 1932 team which went on to take the Southwest Conference title. During his two seasons at Aggieland he has won respect and admiration of both fans and player JAMES PATTONcame to A M in the fall of 1950 and was an immediate favorite with the Aggie for- ward wall prospects. An Oklahoma A M graduate, he played football for those Aggies and for the Great Lakes Naval Training Station in their great years in the early forties. He came here from Cameron Junior College in Oklahoma and at the present time is teaching the end candidates along with his team trainer duties. . . . RAY EVANS, very popular line coach, serves both as football assistant and as head track coach. One of the Texas Western all-time great tackles, he also played two seasons with the San Francisco Forty-Niners. He gained All-Border Conference honors two years and Little All-American notice one year. This is his first coaching job and he is making a definite success of it HARVEY " PUG " GABREL came to A M immediately after being graduated from Texas Western in 1950. He was an outstanding halfback for the Miners, being named to the All-Conference team two years in a row. In addition to his backfield coaching duties which he is performing very creditably, he is also baseball coach. JOE COLEMAN JIM PATTON RAY EVANS HARVEY GABREL HBliH HB B l g J B .. ' ■• ' -. .

HARRY GUTHMULl.ER All- Conference Second Team ijS TO? r Head Basketball Coach and Athletic Director GEORGE c. Mccarty A resume of the Aggie basketball season would have to include a remark about how weak the Ags showed during the season. With only seven wins to their credit against 1 7 defeats, the season couldn ' t be called even fair. The one consolation is that nearly all the boys will be back next year, sowe are looking forward to a successful season. Lack of experience and a natural roughness made ' ' it hard for the Aggie five to keep up with opponents who had, for the most part, a smoother working combination. Fouls, and an inability to hit foul shots, lost more games for the Farmers than did being outscored by field goals. In several cases the McCarty men scored nnore field goals, but were outscored from the free throw line. The words " hot and cold running " have been used to describe many things. In this case they can be used very aptly. In games against West Texas and Texas Tech at Aggie land, the Aggie hard-wooders ran, passed, ana shot like a team of so many pro- fessionals. No amount of height could overcome their teamwork and general cooperation. On the other hand, in games against Tempe and Pepperdine at State College, they were beaten by their own sluggishness and inability to find the hoop. Nights like that aren ' t unusual for aggregations made up of relatively inexperienced individuals. One time they can be on and the next they can be off. The team is losing only three men- -two players and one coach. The two who have played out their elgibility are Albert Hutchison and Ellis Scott, both veterans of college play. Coach McCarty is leaving A M to journey 40 miles south to take over basketball nnentoring at Texas iVestern. He has been head basketball coach of the Aggies for three years, having previously been freshman coach for both major sports and coach at McLean High School, McLean, Tex. Fans and players alike are extremely sorry to see McCarty leave and want to wish him the best of luck. However, circumstances being what they are, there are nnany varied feelings and confused wishes about McCarty ' s future.

Close competition in all sports was the rule as 10 or 12 teams were entered in all events. The unusually large number of participants definitely benefited from the program as ar- ranged by Bud Bradly, intramural director for the second year in a row. Bradly and the Physical Education Department can be congratulated on doing such a fine job. As we went to press, the intra- mural champion had not been determined, but the TKEs were ahead by virtue of their winning both football and basketball.

To improve your own lot, you must do something better than others do it. If you succeed you benefit, and deserve it.

Freedom underlies all of our great efforts, that lead to achievement, suc- cess, and wealth. And our wealth is not taken from us and distributed like a pack of playing cards.
