We have obtained pictures from nearly everyone on the cam- pus who has ever snapped a shutter and from some who haven ' t. To all the people who have had a helping hand in producing the annual, we say, " thanks. " Without your help and cooperation it couldn ' t have been done. To those of you who are see- ing the 1953-54 Swastika for the first time, we hope you enjoy it as much as we did in putting it to- gether.

NEW MEXICO December 7, 1953 TO THE STUDENT BODY: The central theme, Sixty-Five Years of Progress, chosen by the editor of the student annual this year suggests much more than can be covered in one brief statement. Records show that, for the first fifty years, the growth of the A. M. College was slow, when measured either in terms of enrollment or of physical plant. But a glance at the record of alumni who attended the College during those lean years shows that real progress was being made in terms of human values. Mot because of superior management, but because of conditions at least partly external to the campus, the progress of the College is now much mors rapid. Enrollment has doubled since, and partly because of, the Second iorld rfar. The book value of the physical plant has much more than doubled in the same period. Prospects for future progress are excellent. The people of New Mexico believe in the program of the institution and want to support it. Their sons and daughters are coming to the campus in larger numbers each year. Appropriations have been increased significantly each biennium in recent years. Better salaries enable the College to attract well qualified ad- ditions tc its staff. Only gross mismanagement can prevent the growth and development of New Mexico College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts in the yea s ahead. Sincerely yours, a .

The Aggies played their roughest schedule ol past war years with little more than a twenty- man team. Outmanned and often outweighed, the Aggies threw a scare into man)- opponents during the first hall of the game, ' only to bow in the last half to superior numbers The final season rciord showed: The squad traveled to Wyoming for the opening of tin season. The green Aggies, with only fourteen returning lettermen. had a tough afternoon with the- nationall) ranked Cowboys, fighting a losing batth at Laramie. On returning home, the Aggies showed the home crowd a rough brand of football, defeating the defending Colorado Conferenci Champions, Colorado ollegi Tigers I ! to 7. The whole- team saw action, and thi game was not halt as i lose- as the s on indii atcd. At Tucson the following unk. the- Arizona Wildcats ' reserves showed up to good advantage m tin fourth quarter as they pulled awa) to a (7 o 6 win. The halt had ended with thi Aggies on the Arizona goal line, with the scon only 1 5-7, 227 ■•nxi: Tt Jim Frye — Tackle Senior 2 letters Dale Gantz — Guard Junior 3 letters At the second home game of the year, the Aggies were eased out by a strong McMurry Indian team. After a fighting third quarter the Indians salted away their victory with a fourth-quarter touchdown. In the traditional game with Texas Western, the Sun Bowl Champions ground out a 39-0 victory over the Aggies. The Miners were still smarting from the upset the Aggies pulled last year. In the next game, the Aggies met their second consecutive Bowl bound team in the Red Raiders from Texas Tech. The raiders, all 90 strong, fourth ranked nationally and conquerors of Auburn in the Gator Bowl, looked very im- pressive in their win over the Aggies.

The Aggies played circles around the Lobos until late in the third quarter. Once again it was the same story with the university ' s reserves pulling away for the win. Journeying to Abilene, Texas, the Aggies played Hardin-Simmons. The Aggies played a good first hall, but folded in the third quarter to the deeper Hardin- Simmons squad. The Boys returned home tor the last game ot the season with West Texas State Buffaloes, from Canyon, Texas. The Aggies, many of whom were playing the last game of their careers. Lame up with their best game of the season, winning, 19-13. Coach Jim Patton and his staff are to be congratulated on their first season together.

The team never could get its offense rolling; however, defense was good enough to rank them first in the Border Conference and in the top 25 major colleges in the nation. This was a well coached ' , well conditioned, and all around good ball club that never could live up to preseason predictions, but which gave every game all it had. ( oach Askew did a fine job in handling the club, bringing the team back to win that pay ofl game with the .Miners alter the loss of key players.

Football, won by the Tekes, was not decided until the final game, an indication of the close race involv- ed in all competition. Basketball was hanging in the balance as our last deadline arrived. Pool, in the process of being played, was still undecided. Rounding out the program and yet to come up were table tennis, volleyball, bowling horseshoes, soft ball, and track. For the third straight year L. H. " Bud " Bradiy was the student ap- pointed by the Student Commission to run the show. Bradiy and Pro- fessor C. S. Moll, faculty advisor for the intramural program, were working on a possible " deal " to arrange a field day on the order of the old Aggie-Miner field day between the Aggies and New Mexico Western College. Nothing was set at press time. The intramural commission this year was made up of Bradiy, Moll. Roy Rigoni, Theta Chi, Clark Presley, A Club, and Kenny Kleypas, SAF. 245 ' ; ' .fnnifiii n mi in ii hi 1 1 11 ii H ii mi ii n UK ii inn Ill I :i I IWU I II 111 II III I l» •» II II l-lll ,111 « im Advertising ■ 16 Patronize Our Advertisers ' : • HlMll! ll II I MI linn ii i until i a •••■ n r, ........
