AWS acts as a coordinating body of all women ' s organizations in setting the standards for living and working together on campus. New Mexico State University is a member of a large national association— the Intercollegiate Association of Women Students. The purpose of lAWS is to foster the exchange of ideas and information on subjects of mutual interest to the member schools; to encourage a growing awareness of the responsibilities of women students in local, national, and international affairs; and to work for the improvement of women ' s governing groups. NMSU ' s AWS operates under the leadership of the General Council, which is composed of five officers elected by the women students, a representative of the Married Women, Town Girls, Mu Beta, Spurs, Tau Beta Sigma, Womens Recreation Association, Pan-Hellenic Council, and Home Economics Club. The living groups, Hamiel Hall, Rhodes Hall, and the three sororities, Chi Omega, Delta Zeta, and Zeta Tau Alpha have two representatives on the council. The activities of AWS are Big-little Sister Program; Freshman Orientation; Starlite Ball; Ushers; Pennys for a Purpose and the proceeds go toward a scholarship and they also sponsor the Women of Achievement Banquet where outstanding women on campus and in the community receive their scholarships, awards and honors.

Personable and ready to help: Barbara Jo Eas- ton did the introduction section plus MUCH more work on the ' 60 Swastika. Picture was unavailable for Bar- bara Stone who did the classes, and Sandra Roundey who designed the cover. SPECIAL TRIBUTE: To PFC Pleddie Baker, White Sands Missile Range. A former NAASU student, Pleddie pitched in and helped the gang with ideas and that real tough job of compiling the index of all people pictured in the Swastika. We couldn ' t have done it without him; we ' re only sorry his picture wasn ' t available by deadline time. The guy with the camera and some neat ideas: Wesley Lovett, Swastika photog- rapher. Sports Editor Dan Perry really put on the coal to cover ALL Aggie sports. The ' 60 Swastika sports section is the best covered and prepared of any yearbook from NMSU; a real keepsake. 34 At last the 1960 Swastika is in print. At times it appeared doubtful we would make it, but there was always a glimmer of hope. The sweating out of class picture deadlines, the Greek pages, organiza- tional contract deadlines and innumerable other problems often seemed too much. The one single motive for that glimmer of hope and the only way rhe 1960 Swastika became a reality was my staff: Jimmie Leigh as Business Manager; Barbara Stone with the classes; Barbara Jo and her introductory section; Fran and the division pages; Dan Perry with his excellent sports section; Pleddie and the drudgery of the index; Wesley ' s hours in the darkroom; but most of all, the guiding light was next year ' s editor, Mary Lee Turner— she was always willing to take on any new task, to work far into the night with never a complaint. Look forward to her Swastika, it will be a winner. To all these people go my humble thanks— without them this Swastika would never have been published. To them goes all the credit for the good parts of this book. All the errors, oversights and shortcomings are mine. VERNON WADE Editor, 1960 Swastika A real worker, Fran Kady did the Swastika ' s division pages, besides helping with other sections. It took much time and many ideas to cover the LIFE pictured in those division pages. miix i THE BOSS , VERNON WADE The last minute rush almost finished her off, but Mary Lee Turner, next year ' s editor pulled through. Getting those favorites, faculty, and honoraries in the Swastika was a real problem at times, but they ' re there.

D. BOSTON The College of Arts and Sciences emphasizes the ideal of liberal education as being essential for intelligent living in the modern world. The program of a candidate for the Bachelor degree consists of a well-balanced course, consisting of both elective and re- quirements. Phases of study stressed are the humanities, the social sciences, the natural sciences, and professional programs. Nor is physical development neglected in the curriculum— courses in both physical and health education emphasize the ideal of a sound mind in a sound body. The College endeavors to help men and women to develop into well-rounded persons, not merely encyclopedias saturated with scientific fact, but rather persons with an understanding, appreciation, and application of their knowledge for life in a complex society. 40 V .- 6J COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 41 HELEN ABASKIN English Albuquerque DALE ALEXANDER Chemistry Las Cruces SENIORS PHILLIP CAMPREDON JOAN CHITTICK History Business Santa Fe Las Cruces ROY CLYMER Sociology Drumright, Okla. 42 NANCY JO ARCHER Business Socorro WILLIAM BELLAIS History Las Cruces VALECIA COURTNEY Sociology W.S.M.R. s , ' i ISIDRO DELGADO Pre-Medical Las Cruces PATRICIA DUNIGAN Physical Education El Paso, Texas - WILLIAM FRIETZE Government Mesilla GUS GOMEZ Business Las Cruces CLASS OF 1960 SAL GONZALES MARJORIE GRIMES Physical Ed.

THOMAS Preparation of men and women for successful careers in the various fields of industry is the primary objective of the College of Engineering. Although professional competency is emphasized, the personality and character of the individual student is not neglected. In order to prepare students to meet the exacting demands of industry in their chosen fields and also equip them for indus- trial levels which require a degree, a four-year program is pre- sented. The College of Engineering offers a curriculum designed to meet the demand and requirements for trained engineers, who have had a rigorous theoretical and practical education in the physical sciences and general education. 46 COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING 47 RICHARD ADAMS Civil Gallup MARLIN AKER Mechanical Espanola CLASS OF 1961 JON BATISTIC Mechanical Phoenix, Ariz.

ROUSH The College of Teacher Education is based upon the principle that a college graduate, training to enter service in the field of teaching or psychology, should have a broad general education and adequate professional training. The college, with Dean Roush at its head, is one of the fastest growing at NMSU. Much general expansion in undergraduate courses is anticipated, with about the same growth in the graduate education programs. Degrees now given are Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and Bachelor of Science in Teacher Education, plus advanced degrees and study in each of the areas. 56 " c i- - COLLEGE OF TEACHER EDUCATION 57 MARILYN ADAMS Elementary Education Las Vegas .» CLASS OF 1960 ROBERTA BAIRD Home Economics Education Gallup SUE BLACKMON Elementary Education Belen JERRY BONDS Home Economics Education Tucumcari ELIZABETH BROOKS DUDLEY CASH CAROLYN COOK JACK CREIGHTON Home Ec.

LEYENDECKER The College of Agriculture and Home Economics is a major instructional division of New Mexico State University and has as its ultimate aim providing undergraduate students with the technical training necessary to cope with the problems of agri- culture and the home in our scientific age. The prominent and extensive consideration given to agricul- tural problems today is a direct result of the fact that agricul- ture constitutes a vital factor in the welfare of the entire nation. So many and varied are the positions calling for men with scientific training in agriculture that they may not be enu- merated here. The home is recognized as the foundation of American life. The kind of home in which an individual is reared influences his ability to solve personal and other problems. Thus it is desirable to stress the importance of home economics training. The need is great both for the homemakers trained to assume responsibilities of community leadership and for leaders in the fields of home ec onomics education. 62 ■if COLLEGE OF AGRICULTURE AND HOME ECONOMICS 63 CURTIS BRESHEARS So 7 Science Portales WALTER CAVINESS Agronomy Loving BOBBY ADEE Animal IHusbandry Bueyeros EMMIT BROOKS Agricultural Education Portales BILLY DINWIDDIE Agricultural Economics Jal THOMAS JOE Agricultural Economics Aztec CLASS OF JOAN JOHNSON Home Economics Education Gladstone L960 CHARLIE LIGOCKY Agricultural Economics Deming JAMES PARMELEE Range Management Ysleta, Texas JAMES STOREY Animal Husbandry Belen JAMES WIGGS Horticulture El Paso, Texas BILLY McCASLAND Animal Husbandry Clovis The alumni dinner in honor of the I960 graduates marked the opening of the new Richardson Room in Milton Hall.

The second play of the season " The Diary of Anne Frank " was the touching story of two fam- ilies who spent two years in hiding because of the Nazi invasion during World War Two. Anne depicts the change in each of them and beauty that grows out of faith, love, and a zest for life. The original story is by Otto Frank, Anne ' s father and the play itself was written by Frances Good- rich and Albert Hackett. ANNE FRANK Judy Pllle THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett One of Shakespeares ' most humorous fantasies, " Midsummer Night ' s Dream, " involved a cast of tv enty to thirty stu- dents and was popular both because of the play itself and the production given. The beautiful forest set was the handi- work of Ann Zohn, as are most of the Playmakers sets.

Backing up the mighty winning Aggies, the 90-piece band, under the direction of Ray Tross, presented and repre- •sented New Mexico State University to the Nth degree. The 1959-60 marching band was the largest in the history of the school. Musicians came from as far as the Canal Zone in Panama. The roster included students from Texas, Chicago, Arizona, Tennessee, Idaho, California, Wisconsin, Kansas, Missouri, and, naturally. New Mexico. Kenneth Guthrie as drum major, and B. J.

Qualities which are considered in prospective nominees are: The student ' s excellence and sincerity in scholarship, his leadership and participation in extracurricular and aca- demic activities, his citizenship and service to the school, and his promise of future usefulness to business and society. We believe that these qualities are exemplified in the stu- dents who were elected this year from New Mexico State University.

Sigma Pi, formerly Alpha Delta Theta, has been active in all cam- pus activities since it was founded in 1921. The strong local went national in 1955 and since then the Sigma Pi Alumni Association, which is composed of many ADT ' s, has worked hand in hand with the active group. The three major social functions of the fraternity are Homecoming, Founder ' s Day, and the Orchid Formal. Also, various informal parties, rush functions, stag parties, and picnics are held throughout the year. The Sigma Pi ' s have excelled in intramural sports and at the same time have rated at the fop scholastically throughout their long history. The fraternity ' s aim is to foster a spirit of good fellowship among its members and between its members and other groups on the campus. For this reason, Sigma Pi pledges are selected primarily on their ability to get along with others. u 1959- ' 60 OFFICERS: SAGE ?st Counselor 2nd Counselor _ 3rd Counselor 4th Counselor Herald 1960- ' 61 OFFICERS: SAGE 1st Counselor . 2nd Counselor 3rd Counselor 4th Counselor Herald Vince Mastrangelo Bob Crane Joe Succi Tony Juarez Nat Thomas Luis Lucero _ Ronald Gott _ John France Bill Fiske Melvin AAorris Ken Lloyd Dan Perry ACTRES Bill Fiske Dave Ferguson John France Jon Fredericks Don Henderson Ken Lloyd Charles Lockhart AAelvin Morris Geofge Nail Lee Palmer Dan Perry Don Roberts Gary Royster Guido Zecca Charles Barbee Bill Clark Jim Grain Bob Crane Dave Derkson Deem Dickson pr, Actives not shown; Boyce Williams, Joe Succi, and Jaties Jacobson 150 Fall Sage VINCE AAASTRANGELO Spring Sage RONALD GOTT " A SACRIFICE TO VICTORY, " Sigma Pi ' s Homecoming entry, must have helped the Aggies.

It was a great year for Head Coach Warren Wood- son and his staff, not to mention the players themselves, as the New Mexico State University Ag- gies ran up a seven-win, three-loss record, and then battered North Texas State College 28-8 in the Sun Bowl. It had been since 1938 that an Aggie team had won more than they lost. The Ag- gies placed five men on the All-Border Conference First Team, and added two more on the Hon- orable Mention Team. Due to graduation, the NMSU eleven will lose eight top-notch players, but the heart of the team will be around another year in Charley Johnson, Pervis Atkins, Bob Gaiters, J. W. Witt, Jimmy Campbell, and Lou Zivkovich. Additions before the start of the 1960 season can do nothing but aid the team. Leading the 1960 charges will be co-captains Johnson and Zivkovich. This coming season the Aggies will be at a slight disadvantage as three of their four conference games will be played out of town. There ' s only one word to describe the 1959 Aggies; GREAT.

" gave the fans something to rave about this year as he led the nation in scoring (107 points), rushing (971 yards), and punt returns (241 yards in 16 returns). A Santa Ana, Calif. Junior College transfer, Atkins was probably the most feared runner in tfie Conference, an honor which can be seen in his being picked as First String, All-Border Conference Right-Halfback. He is also known to have caught a pass or two. (Remember the Sun Bowl?) BOB GAITERS 5-11, 204 lbs., LH, Zanesville, Ohio " Hully-Gully " Gaiters was the other All-Border Conference Half- back from the great Aggie backfield. Bob reminded many opponent backs of the 5:09 Southern Pacific once he had broke into the secondary. Gaiters missed four games because of an ankle injury, but still scored 58 points. CHARLEY JOHNSON 6-1 , 1 95 lbs., QB, Big Spring, Tex. " As Charley goes, so go the Aggies. " How well fans know this? Johnson was the third pick of the dream backfield on the All-Border Conference team. He led the Conference in total offense (1,635 yards), passing (1,449 yards), and led the nation in touchdown passes (18), not counting two he threw in the Sun Bowl. He was named Most Valuable Player in the Sun Bowl, and will co-captain the ' 60 team. PLAYERS E. A. SIAAS 6-2, 206 lbs., RE, Abilene, Tex. Some folks think E. A. is the best all-round end in the Confer- ence. The Aggies know it! Sims caught 19 passes for 234 yards and 3 touchdowns this past season, but his specialty is defense. E. A. was named to the Border Conference First Team, and will see heavy duty in the Aggies drive toward the Championship this year. J. W. WITT 6-2, 210 lbs., LG, Amarillo, Tex. As freshman, J. W. was named to the honorable-mention All- Border Conference. His outstanding play on the left side of the Aggie forward wall jumped his name to First Team All-Border Conference this past year. The British have their " Rock of Gibral- tar, " and the Aggies have theirs. JIMMY CAMPBELL 6-0, 190 lbs., LG, Hobbs, N. Mex. Named to the All-Border Conference honorable mention team Jimmy proved to be one of t,he most improved squad members. His size had many opponent linemen fooled. Coach Woodson used Campbell at different positions on the line, and wherever he was placed the Head Coach forgot his worries. GEORGE MULHOLLAND 6-0, 188 lbs., LE, Philadelphia, Pa. Team Captain Mulholland will be one of eight graduating seniors who will be greatly missed. As favorite receiver of QB Johnson, George gathered in 4 touchdown passes over the course of the season. As tribute to his years as an Aggie, Mulholland was given recognition on the All-Border Conference honorable mention team. 16!

Last year the ' Jacks were the number two small college in the nation. However the Ag ' s didn ' t appear to be too frightened as they walked off with a 35-0 vic- tory. The Axmen took the opening kick-off, fumbled it, and with less than 1:21 gone in the season the Aggies hit paydirt with Bob Gaiters going 3 yards around end. Danny Villanueva booted the first of five successful extra points. In the third period, Charley Johnson pinned Captain George Mulholland with a 9-yard pass and a TD. With time running out in the third quarter, Pervis Atkins scored his first TD of the season from 12 yards out; Villanueva was true and the Aggies commanded a 21-0 lead. Early in the final stanza, Bob Gaiters broke loose with a 55-yard gallop for another 6 points. Atkins hit off tackle for the final Aggie score. As a team, NMSU gained 302 total yards to ASU ' s 211. Both teams rang up 11 first downs, but the big factor was in ASU ' s fumbles where they lost 4 of 4. This marked the first time since 1952 that an Aggie eleven had won their opening game. score by quarters: AGGIES .____. 7 14 14 LUMBER- JACKS final: NAASU-35 ASC-0 I960 CO-CAPTAIN w i E S Ml ■ 1 ' M l ' PI f 1 1 r w 1 K E 1 ! 1 1 f i mfmtirM : Lou Zivkovich Right Tackle Pervis Alkms breaks into clear th aid from Doug Veazy (25), and Sal Gonzales (42), as the Aggies rout ASC 35-0 in first game. 162 AGGIES FINALLY DOWN LOBOS It took the NAASU Aggies 23 years to do it, but Sept. 19, the town of Albuquerque shook from the 29-12 pounding the Ma- roon and White gave the Lobos. The first time the Aggies got their hands on the ball Atkins pulled one of Coach Woodson ' s 1947 plays, a double reverse and went 56 yards to the end- zone. Villanueva ' s kick was good as was his 42-yard field goal later in the period. UNM ' s Ail-American product, Don Perkins, scored for the Lobos to make the score 10-6. Big Billy Ray Locklin blocked the try for extra point. Just before the half Gai- ters went 4 yards off tackle to give the underdog Aggies a 16-6 half-time lead. UNAA came on strong in the second half on " Hully-gully " looks swamped, but still scores. Brown ' s 35-yard sprint. Again the conversion attempt was bat- ted down. At this point the Aggies held a slim 16-12 lead. Atkins quickly upped the margin by going over right tackle from the 9. In the final quarter, quarterback Johnson found receiver Louis Kelley along the left sidelines and pitched a perfect strike to end the evening ' s scoring. Villanueva ' s try to make it 3 for 4 saw the ball hit the cross-bars and bounce off. At the end of the hard fought contest, about 5,000 Aggie fans swarmed onto the field, and helped the team carry the coaches tp the buses. It ' s no wonder. The last time the Ag ' s had man- aged a win from the Lobos was in 1937 when they squeaked out a 5-0 victory. Since then the win column had read 0, while there were 18 losses to the UNM elevens. The University of Atkins rolls and Sims mops up against Lobos. New Mexico did gain 2 more yards over-all than the Aggies (374-372 yards), but the alert State defense fell on 3 of 4 loose fumbles committed by the Lobos. Atkins was outstanding for the winners as the 195-lb. halfback picked up 164 yards in 20 carries. Johnson connected on 8 of 1 6 passes plus one touch- down. Gaiters played great ball in the first half, but had to leave the qame because of a serious ankle injury early in the second half. The line play of Lou Zivkovich, Locklin, J. W. Witt, E. A. Sims, and George Mulholland proved too much for the better-than-average Lobos line. One of the hiahlights of the qame occurred in the first period when Danny Villanueva kicked his 42-yard field goal. The record keepers at the University dug deep and found that the kick was one of the longest if not the longest that had ever been kicked in Zimmerman Stadium. So with .this impressive 29-12 win over what many local sports- writers considered the powerhouse in the Southwest, the Ag- gies won ' t have to wait " until next year " to beat the Lobos. They did it this year. score by quarters: AGGIES 10 6 7 6 LOBOS 6 6 final: NMSU-29 UNM-12 TULSA SQUEAKS BY NMSU 28-27 Without the services of star halfback Bob Gaiters, the Aggies lost their first game in three starts. Tulsa jumped off to a quick 13-0 first period score, both on Brumble ' s one-yard plunges and one conversion, before the Aggies materialized their attack. Quarterback Johnson pushed the Aggies into the scoring parade by flipping a 6-yard touchdown pass to Atkins. Villanueva added the extra point, but the. Aggies trailed 13-7. The second quarter found the Golden Hut ' ricanes taking to the air and a Keeling to Kelly (not our Kelly) pass with 45 seconds in the half upped the score to 20-7 when the extra point scored. The Ag- gies brought the Tulsa fans to their feet just 20 seconds later when Johnson heaved to Bob Kelly, who then made a circus catch, and completed the 70-yard scoring play. The intermission score read 20 for Tulsa, 14 for the Aggies. In the third period, the Aggies overcame the Hurricane lead when Johnson hit End E. A. Sims from one yard out. Villanueva again converted to give the Ag ' s a 21-20 lead going into the final quarter. Midway through the period, Tulsa quarterback Keeling spotted team- mate Cheap all alone, and this resulted in a 45-yard pass-run play. A pass from Keeling to Brumble was good for the 2-point conversion. In a last ditch attempt to pull the game out of the fire, Aggie Johnson drove his team to the V2-yard line from where he tossed his fourth touchdown pass of the night; this time to George Mulholland. With the pressure on, kicker Vil- lanueva came in to tie the game, but the try was wide and the score read 28-27 Tulsa. score bv quarters: AGGIES 7 7 7 6 HURRICANES 13 7 8 final: Tulsa U.-28 NMSU-27 Ricky Alba Quarteriiacli RoyCL ' Cassell Right End 163 AGGIES CRUSH McMURRY INDIANS It was the case of too much Charley Johnson and Pervis At- Atkins as the Aggies won their third game of the season at the expense of the McMurry Indians. Johnson threw three TD passes and Atkins scored three times as the NAASU eleven rolled up their highest single game total of the season in a 43-1 1 win. AAcMurry drew first blood on an 18-yard field goal mid- way through the first period. The Aggies came back with the first of Johnson ' s touchdown throws, a 4-yarder to Bob Kelly. Danny Villanueva converted to make the score 7-3. The second period saw Villanueva boot a 16-yard field goal to send the Aggies into a 10-3 halftime lead. The 33-point second half got " P. A. " and an Indian looking the situation over. underway on the second play after the kick-off. Johnson hit half- back Doug Veazy with a 51 -yard pass that put the home team out in front 17-3 after Villanueva added the extra point. Atkins broke into the scoring column with dives of 3 and 5 yards. With the second team playjng most of the last quarter, Gonzales made the score read 36-3 and Adkins gave Villanueva a breather by booting the extra point. The Indians, who had been un- beaten in three games, finally made a drive good when quarter- back O ' Brien passed to Howard for 6 points, and then passed to Tolliver for a 2-point conversion. This brought the score to 37-1 1 in the Aggies ' favor. With minutes left, Johnson con- nected on his third touchdown pass; this time to Atkins from the 3-yard line. The extra point try was wide and the game ended. The win brought the Aggies ' record to three wins against one loss. Fumbles again told the tale as the Aggies recovered all three bobbles made by the Indians. In over-all gains, the Aggies covered 370 yards to the Indians 277, and the winners also led in first and tens with 17 to AAcMurry ' s 15. Atkins totaled 136 yards in 1 8 carries, and Johnson now has completed 9 touch- down passes. This win was only the second in nine games with the AAcAAurry Indians. score by quarters: AGGIES 7 3 20 13 INDIANS 3 8 final: NAASU-43 AAcAAurry-1 1 NMSU EDGES TRINITY 20-18 Coach Warren Woodson took his charges to San Antonio, Texas on Oct. 10, to do battle with a highly under-rated Trinity U. eleven. The first quarter ended in a scoreless tie although the Aggies had trouble in stopping the Tiger drives. AAidway through the second period Atkins circled his right end from 3 yards out for the first score of the game. Villanueva split the cross-bars for a 7-0 half-time lead. The Aggies took to the air in an effort to score and avoid the heavier Tiger line which was having a field day with our backs. A Johnson to Bob KellV pass produced the second Aggie touchdown, but the try for con- version failed. With a 13-0 lead, the Aggies relaxed only to watch a Patterson to Day pass get the Tigers into the game. A run for extra points was short. As insurance, the Aggies sent Louis Kelley over from the 1-yard line at the beginning of the final quarter. Villanueva found the mark again to put the NAASU team out in front with a 20-6 lead. However, Trinity blasted away at the Ag line until it found some weaknesses and pushed across two late period counters. On both tries for extra points, the Tigers elected to pass, and both tosses were knocked away from their intended receivers. Atkins found the Tiger line unwilling, and was able to gain but 61 yards in 16 tries. John- son found things easier in the air as he completed 11 of 15 throws. The tough Aggie line was just about all that saved the game. On three or four occasions the forward wall rose up inside the 10-yard line. On one Tiger drive, the San Antonio boys had a second down and 6 on the 6-yard line of the Ag- gies. But two runs netted the Tigers a loss of 22 yards back to the 28. Playing without Bob Gaiters for the third game in a row, the Aggies lacked the powerful punch to pick up short, needed yardage. Louis Kelley and Sal Gonzales both put in fine games from the fullback slot. End Bob Kelly ' s touchdown was the third game running in which he had turned the trick. This game marked the second time the two teams had locked horns. In the first encounter. Trinity had blanked the Aggies at University Park by a 20-0 decision. score by quarters: AGGIES 7 6 7 TIGERS -.-.- - 6 12 fmah NAASU-20 Trinity- -18 Carl Covington Center Bob Kelly Left End 164 TEXAS WESTERN UPSETS AGGIES After a week ' s rest following the 20-18 victory over Trinity U., the Aggies traveled 45 miles south to El Paso for the grudge game with the Texas Western Miners. The Aggies, by virtue of their four wins, 1 loss record were favored over the luckless Miners, but a combination of a good quarterback, (John Furman who went on to win the Border Conference Most Valuable Player award), a determined team, a Homecoming game, and a bad night for the Aggies totaled up to a 20-15 win for TWC. In the first period, the Aggies exploded, as expected, for a 12-0 lead. Taking the ball on the kick-off, the NMSU eleven was forced to punt. Johnson punted deep into Miner territory when their safety fumbled the ball and guard Ben Landin re- covered on the Miner 6-yard line. Two plays later Sal Gonzales tore into the end-zone for the score. Villanueva ' s kick was wide. Near the end of the quarter Bob Gaiters ' added another six- pointer by going over from 5 yards out. Gaiters then tried to run for the extra points but his effort fell short. In the second period the Miners struck pay-dirt with Furman eating up the last yard. The kick was wide, and the Ag ' s held a 12-6 half- time advantage. TWC again scored halfway through the third stanza as a fake end run ended in a Williams to De Santis touch- down pass that covered 34 yards. Again the kick was wide and the score was deadlocked at 12 each. Before the fourth period began, Villanueva came off the bend and split the goal-post with a 45-yard field goal to put the Aggies into a 15-12 lead. The Miners wouldn ' t be stopped though as a last quarter drive put the ball on the Aggie 5-yard line. From there Bradshaw scored and a 2-point play on a Furman to Babbs pass ended the scoring. Gaiters was the big gun for the Aggies as the 205 lb. halfback picked up 124 yards on 19 carries. Johnson com- pleted 16 of 31 passes and 224 yards, but the Maroon and White couldn ' t contend with the Miners that night. score by quarters: AGGIES .12 3 6 6 8 MINERS final: TWC-20 NMSU-15 Gaiters speeds by one Miner while Kelley 44), and Locklin (78) move over to help in game which saw TWC come from behind to win 20-15. NMSU DROPS THRILLER TO ASU In their second Border Conference outing, the NMSU Aggies dazzled Arizona State U. with everything they had in the book, but lack of time kept the Aggies from beating the Sun Devils this year. Between Gaiters, Atkins, and Johnson, it was almost impossible for the Sun Devils to keep ahead in the scoring. In the opening quarter, Johnson quickly put the Ag ' s in the lead by throwing a 15-yard pass to Gaiters for the first 6 points of the high-scoring game. Gaiters went off tackle for the conver- sion and an 8-0 Aggie lead. ASU stormed back to tie NMSU the next time it got its hands on the ball. Noland Jones went 1 yard for the score, and then added 2 more on an end sweep. Another touchdown and the extra point put the Sun Devils in front to stay. Early in the second quarter, sub-quarterback Ur- ban hit Rembert with still another touchdown toss, and Jones kicked the extra point for a 22-8 ASU lead. But before the half ended, the Aggies fought down to the one-yard line where Gaiters edged over for the score. Atkins added 2 points on a run, and the Ag ' s no wtrailed 22-16. Starting the third Quarter, Jones kicked an 18-yard field goal for 3 more points. The Aa- qies countered with Gaiters scoring his third touchdown, and Villanueva booting the extra point. ASU ' s Jones then kicked an- other 18-yard field goal, and the Sun Devils now led 28-23. An 11 -yard run by McFalls ended Arizona State ' s scoring after Jones had added the conversion. By now it was late into the fourth period. With time running out a desperation pass by Johnson to Atkins netted 40 yards and the final score of the night. The Aggies worked an on-side kick to perfection, and were on the Sun Devil ' s 1 5-yard line when the game ended. The final score read ASU 35, and th Aggies 31 . Johnson upped his passing yardage by 264 yards with 19 completions in 34 attempts. Atkins only carried the ball twice, but as a pass re- ceiver he took in 9 passes for 136 yards. Guard Jimmy Camp- bell was a standout in the line, and of course Gaiters ' 20 points was hard to beat. This was the third loss for the Aggies and their record now read 4 wins, 3 losses. However, their Border Conference record was wins and 2 losses. The last time an Aggie eleven had beaten an Arizona State team was in 1938. That year the Maroon and White dumped the Sun Devils 14-12. Over-all performance against the ASU team shows that in 23 games the Ag ' s have won only 5. But the ' 59 35-31 lost can ' t weigh too heavy against the fact that the Aggies finished the game on the ASU 1 5-yard line. Bob Langford Right Half score by quarters: AGGIES 8 SUN DEVILS 15 final: ASU-35 7 3 10 NMSU-31 Clem AAancini Center 165 AGGIES BURY HSU COWBOYS 42-13 Against a team that they hadn ' t beaten in 36 years, the NMSU Aggies showed little or no mercy as they completely wiped out the Hardin-Simmons U. Cowboys to the tune of 42-13. This win was the most impressive of the year, and it was after this game that Sun Bowl officials contacted Coach Woodson and asked if the Aggies would play in the New Year ' s spectacle. The Ag- gies got off to a flying start as Johnson shot a 3-yard touch- down pass to Captain George AAulholland. Danny Villanueva ' s conversion was good and the Aggies led 7-0. The Cowboys took the kick-off, and it took them but five plays to cover 80 yards. Echols went the final yard, and the kick tied the game at 7 all. Gaiters led the Aggie into the lead as the second period got underway as he went 9 yards off tackle, and then used the same side of the line for the two extra points. It was Gaiters again on the next Aggie score, as he scored from 4 yards out this time. Villanueva again toed the pigskin for a 22-7 half-time lead. Johnson heaved his 14th touchdown pass of the season during the third quarter. AAulholland was on the receiving end once more, and to emphasize the fact that he can throw, Johnson tossed the 2-point conversion to E. A. Sims. Johnson set up the next play himself as he turned a quarterback sneak into a 70-yard gain to the 2-yard line. Louis Kelley shoved it over from there. Villanueva missed on his extra point try; one of the few times he did all season. HSU scored their second TD of the night during the final period on a Butler to Voss pass-run play of 19 yards. A try for two points failed and the Ag ' s commanded a 36-13 lead. Sal Gon- zales finished the scoring on a 3-yard dive play. The conver- sion was wide and the Aggies won 42-13. Outstanding on the defensive side of the game was Robert Langford the smallest man on the field. Time and time again Langford would nail Cowboy runners before they could get up steam. Johnson con- tinued to up his passing yardage as the big quarterback hit on 11 of 19 for 101 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Aggies racked up 14 first downs to the Cowboys ' 8. But most impressive of all is the SUN BOWL. score by quarters.- AGGIES 7 COWBOYS 7 final: NMSU-42 15 8 12 6 HSU- -13 NMSU GAINS 35-13 HOMECOMING WIN The Sun Bowl-bound Aggies thrilled a sell-out crowd at their 1959 Homecoming as Pervis Atkins scored three times in the 35-13 rout. Winning the toss and taking the opening kick-off, the Buffaloes ' quar- terback Logan ran the ball back to the NMSU 19. Five plays later WTS scored and added the extra point to throw a 7-0 scare into the Ag- gies. On the return kick-off the Aggies took charge and drove to the one where Louis Kelley scored and Villanueva tied the score. Later in the first period, Johnson found Sims open at the 20 and the big end rambled into the end-zone. Villanueva again converted and the Aggies led going into the second period 14-7. Atkins made the score read 20-7 before the hal f ended and Villanueva tacked one more point on going into the dressing room. The third period turned into a punting duel, but Atkins countered shortly after the start of the final period from 10 yards out. Villanueva made it 4 for 4 in extra points. Atkins added his third TD of the evening, much to the fans ' delight, as he ran into the end zone from 3 yards out. The crowd wasn ' t too surprised to see Coach Woodson send in Villanueva and the kick sailed completely over the field fence as the Aggies upped the lead to 35-7. Against the third and fourth stringers, the Buffaloes finally started moving, but not without great trouble. WTS ' s Lorance scored with 35 seconds left in the game, and the 2-point try failed to end the game. Once again little Bob Langford turned in a great performance from his linebacker position. Lou Zivkovitch recov- ered two fumbles and intercepted a pass in his best game of the season. But the big gun in the attack was Atkins as he ripped off 117 yards on 23 carries, and pushed his season point total to 83 with his 3 touchdowns. Johnson picked up 1 1 8 yards as the Agaies com- pletely smothered the Buff ' s in their march to the Sun Bowl. The 35-13 Homecoming win, plus the fact that it takes five guys to bring down Atkins is still haunting the West Texas State Buffs. score by quarters.- AGGIES .14 7 14 BUFFALOES 7 6 final: NAASU-35 WSTC-13 Charles Pettes Left Half D;ck Rodz ' k Right Tackle Allen Sepkowitz Right Guard 166 AG ' S CLUB MEXICO IN LAST GAME Traveling south of the Border, the NAASU Aggies finished out their greatest season since 1938 when they won 7 and lost 2. Their 55-0 win over smaller University of Mexico gave the Ag ' s a season record of 7 victories against 3 defeats, and there ' s still the Sun Bowl to be played later. After the Aggies took the opening kick-off, Atkins reeled around end for a 75- yard touchdown. However, an off-sides penalty nullified the run. So on the next play, the somewhat winded Atkins ran an exact copy of the previous play only this time it was 80 yards and a touchdown. The next score came in the second period as Atkins scrambled for 28 yards and Villanueva converted for the second time. Score number three came on a Johnson to Royce Cassell pass which covered 14 yards. Villanueva split the cross- bars. Before the half ended, Atkins found himself going over once more, this time from the 1-yard line, and Villanueva made the score 28-0 at the half. Playing under the lights (in Mexico funny things happen) during the second half the Agaies found the Pumas a little rough during the third quarter. The NMSU squad did score midway through the period when Atkins fum- bled on the Mexico 6 and E. A. Sims recovered the ball in the end-zone. Villanueva kept up his steady barrage with another conversion. In the final period, Johnson pegged an 8-yard scor- ing toss to Bob Kelly, but Villanueva ' s kick was low. (He made the first one, but a penalty called it back.) Atkins scored his fourth touchdown of the game from 8 vards out, and Villanueva got back in the groove with a perfect kick. Johnson completed his 1 8th touchdown pass of the season in closing out the scoring as he once again nailed Kelly with a 21 yarder. Villanueva then booted his 7th of 8 extra points in the rout. With his four touch- downs and 237 yards in 19 carries. Atkins grabbed the na- tional lead. .He also lead the nation in ount returns. Johnson ' s 1 5 of 24 pass completions for 274 yards raised his over-all av- erage. His 18 TD passes led the nation. Quarterbacks Rickv Alba and Villanueva also had a field day.

Bristling with power, speed and passing prowess and not in the, least reluctant to accept help from their fumble stricken foes, the NAASU Aggies bombarded favored North Texas St. 28-8, before a sun-bathed turnout of 15,000 fans in the 25th annual Sun Bowl football game played in El Paso on Dec. 31. The Aggies, who entered the game as one-touchdown under- dogs, never played the role. They exploded for two touch- downs in the opening quarter and added one in each of the second and fourth periods. North Texas, whose every offensive assault was thwarted by fumbles, got its only touchdown on a 51-yard punt return by Billy Christie in the third period. The Eagles seven times relinquished possession on fumbles and on four of these occasions, they were inside the Aggies ' 15-yard line in the midst of scoring drives. The Aggies were happy to accept these favors, of course, and this first launched their initial scoring march. Paced by Quarterback Charley Johnson, Bob Gaiters and a surprisingly rugged line, the Aggies were in con- trol of the situation from the time Billy Ray Locklin recovered Christie ' s first fumble at the NMSU 19. They charged 81 yards in only seven plays to register their first touchdown. Johnson, who suffered through the Aggies ' 43-12 loss to NTSC in 1958, won the outstanding player award after the game. He accounted THE 1959 AGGIES ... 28 for 124 yards through the air, connecting on seven of 1 5 at- tempts, and added another 31 afoot. Gaiters was runner-up to Johnson in the voting, and he was the game ' s leading rusher with 123 yards in 20 assignments. The bruising Aggie line, sup- posedly their weak point, turned in a superb performance. End E. .A. Sims and tackles Locklin and Lou Zivkovich put tremendous pressure on the Eagle passers, and as a result, the Flock had two of its 31 pass attempts stolen. Quarterbacks Vernon Cole and Bob Duty handled the throwing, and hit on 15. NMSU struck with ruthless quickness once Christie ' s fumble blunted the Eagles ' first deep penetration. The Ags moved out to their 43 in six plays, then Johnson dropped back and pegged a bul- let to Pervis Atkins, who was clear at the North Texas 37. Atkins made the reception, dazzled defender Christie with a little h p- dipper, and steamed into the end zone for the touchdown. Gaiters bulled over right guard for the conversion. Thirty-seven seconds later, the Ags boosted the count to 14-0. That second touchdown was really the one that fractured the North Texas State Eagles ' hopes.

He was on the bottom of the pile, giving the Aggies their second touch- down. Atkins ran for points, but failed as the signal sounded to end the first quarter. Next the Eagles stormed downfield, reach- ing the Aggie four, wher e halfback Abner Haynes lost the ball. Bob Langford simply " took " the ball from Haynes as he was crossing the double-strips. This left the Aggies 96 yards away from touchdown No. 3, and they negotiated the distance in just 13 plays. Johnson passed 15 yards to Kelly who then drug four Eagles over for the score. Coach Warren Woodson then dispatched specialist Danny Villanueva into the fray, and he booted the point, putting the Eagles 21 points in the rear, and a stunned and badly shaken football team. This ended the first half scoring, but not the tempers. Just before the half ended, both benches were cleared onto the field over a dis- puted call made by an umpire. But order was restored, and the game finally continued. Late in the third quarter, each team had tried and failed to get anywhere, and NMSU sent Johnson back to punt. He booted from his end zone to Christie at the NTSC 49. The little sprinter set sail down the north sidelines and sped into the end zone. Duty then passed to Arthur Per- kins for the conversion on the last play of the third period. Charley Johnson shown receiving the Outstanding Player Award after the big win. Louis Kelley (44) seems to be causing strange things to happen in the Sun Bowl. NMSU roared back on its next possession, however, to put the final crusher on the Eagles. The Aggies moved 66 yards in just four plays, with Gaiters following Sims around the right side of the line for 44 yards and the score. Villanueva once more booted the point. Fumbles by North Texas finished out the remainder of the contest. The outcome, and how it came about, put several smears on NTSC ' s gaudy credentials. The Eagles were billed as the defensive member of the game, and never during the season had an opponent scored on them through the air. But the burly, quick Aggie line turned in the defensive heroics that bright day, and Johnson quickly took care of the latter record. The proposed individual duel between Haynes and Atkins didn ' t exactly come off. Instead it was Gaiters who carried the brunt on the fine Aggie running game, overshadowing both his more publicized rivals. And with Gaiters pounding at the line and Johnson magnificent at the helm and with the overhead attack, the Aggies just overpow- ered the Eagles. And so Coach Woodson ended his second sea- son as Head Coach at NMSU. The seven-win, three-loss record posted by the Aggies will be hard to beat this coming season, but if anyone or any team can do it, it ' s the Aggies. The story and the records show that the Maroon and White can be definite underdogs and still win. And if you dispute this, just ask North Texas State.

Watch out, opponents. This 6-7 athlete was one of two unani- mous choices for the Border Confer- ence First Team. Knighton poured in a total of 577 points for a 21.4 per game average this past season, good for second in the Conference. One could virtually say that Knigh- ton " carried the Aggies to the Championship. " George also won the Most Valuable Player Award in the Far West Classic. Glad he ' s on our side? VINCENT KNIGHT A Junior College transfer, Vince captured the hearts of many local fans with his out- standing ball confrol. When Knight would score (he totaled 331 points for the season), he wouldn ' t do it in just any fashion, he was very professional about it. His great play at NAASU gave him a berth on the Border Conference First Team; a fitting gesture to such a good player. BILLY JOE PRICE Who at NMSU doesn ' t know Billy Joe? Not too many. Price has been playing ball for Coach Askew for three years now, and had it not been for a crippling ankle injury, the 1959-60 season would have been much better for him. He was still named to the Second Team, All-Border Conference. Yes, he is a fighting Aggie! 173 NMSU ASC . 86 69 The opening game of the season saw a fore- cast of what was to come, as the Aggies swamped the Arizona State College Lumber- jacks 86-69. Price led all scorers with 22, and Knight and Knighton followed with 17 and 16 respectively. Pacheco hit 16 for the losers. The half read 47-35 in favor of the Aggies. That ' s " Chief " on the move, with " Big George " blocking. NMSU NMW 93 60 The New Mexico Western Mustangs became victim number two in a game played at Deming, New Mexico. The 93 points was the highest single game score the Aggies had all season. High point man for the Ags was Canady with 19. The NMSU winners held a slight 23 point edge at half. NMSU ... 72 SFU . . . 63 In their first major test on the road, the Aggies complete- ly surprised everyone by beat- ing the San Francisco U. Dons by a 72-63 count. Knighton led the band of Aggies with a 27 point performance. Price connected for 22. The Nation- al Champions of tw o years ago had a 16 point night from Ron Cox. At half the score was 41- 30, Aggies. The win upped the Aggie record to 3 and for the year. LEE BOWEN uu . . NMSU 82 67 DARRELL BUSHMIAER In their fourth outing, the Ags ran into stone wall Utah University, and came out short 32-6.7. The taller Redskins had little trogble with the NMSU five, but Knighton again stole scoring honors with 24 points. Utah went on to win the Sky- line Championship and ad- vanced in the NCAA Play Offs. NMSU cu . . 69 After suffering their first defeat at the hands of powerful Utah University, the Aggies traveled to Boulder, Colorado and upset highly favored Colorado University 77-69. The NMSU team did this by shooting a hot 49% from the floor in connecting on 31 of 63 field goals. Knighton led the Aggie scoring with 20 points as the winners came from behind at the half (44-34) to win the game. This improved the Aggie record to 4 wins, and 1 loss for the season! It ' s my turn to lead, Bowen cried! 174 UNM . NMSU 68 . 63 The Aggies beat the Lobos in football; the Lobes beat the Aggies in basketball . . . what a switch! Too much everything worked at 68-63 defeat at the hands of the University of New Mexico Lobos. The winners held a 35-23 half time lead before the Aggies could get moving. With 3 minutes remaining, NMSU put on a rally and got within two points of the Lobos, but pressure told the tale. Price was the games high point man with 22. He also injured his ankle in this game. The loss put the Ag record at 4 and 2. NMSU McMC ADDISON CANADY Clymer seems to say, " Well, as long as everyone is sitting down, guess I will too! " Returning home, the NMSU five met and drubbed the McMurry College Indians by a healthy 81-59 score. Buddy 81 Canady fired the Ags with 20 points followed closely by g Knighton ' s 18. Burkhardt kept the Indian game going with 19. The Aggies held a 45-30 half time advantage and were never seriously threatened. The win improved the NMSU record to 5 wins against 2 defeats. NMSU COS . 74 45 Central Oklahoma State offered little more than practice to the surging Ag- gies as they fell by the way- side 74-45. Knighton ' s 24 points led the scoring, and Casanova pumped in 16 for his best performance of the season. While the Aggies were downing Central, Texas Western was beating Southwestern Oklahoma in a double-header. The four teams traded opponents and met in El Paso the fol- lowing night. JOHN CASANOVA NMSU SOS . 46 42 The Aggies found things a little rougher in El Paso as they managed a four point 46-42 victory over Southwestern Oklahoma State. Knighton turned in his second straight 24 point night as he helped the Aggies up their won-loss record to 7 and 2. This game proved to be the lowest scoring game of the season. The intermission score read 23-20 for the Ags. Long, tall Billy making a hook against ASC. 175 FAR WEST CLASSIC 1.) OSU . . . 54 NMSU ... 50 In the first game of the invitational Far West Classic, the Aggies drew host team Oregon State University. The clean play, and determina- tion shovi ed by the Aggies won many north- western hearts although NMSU fell 54-50. George Knighton was the game ' s outstanding individual as he led the Ags in scoring 23 markers. OSU led at the half 27-20. Vincent Knight teaching some West Texas boys how it ' s done. 2.) NMSU DU . . 66 61 In the first Consolation game of the Classic, the Aggie five trimmed a strong Portland University team by a 66-61 count. Knighton again proved to be the scoring punch as he netted 24 points. Price added another 16 for the victors. The win moved the Aggies into the Consolation Finals. IRA CLARK 3.) NMSU DU . . 68 62 The crowd roared its ap- proval in the final game the Aggies played in during the Classic. The game saw the Denver University Pioneers stumble at the hands of the Aggies by a 68-62 score. The win was the second in three games, and by his play, Knighton was award- ed the Most Valuable Tour- nament Player trophy. A late first half rally put the Aggies beyond reach of the Pioneers. ROY CLYMER NMSU ACC . 91 70 Returning home from the short Christmas vacation, the Aggies wasted little time in reminding people that they were a power- house. The Abilene Christian College Wildcats fell before a blaz- ing Ag five 91-70 as Knighton rammed 29 points into the record books. The half time score read 37-30 in the Ags favor. The win moved the record up to 10 wins and 3 losses. " Big George " pumps one over straining Lobo. 176 NMSU UA . . 70 53 In their first Border Conference outing of the season, the Aggies walked away with a 70-53 victory over host team, the University of Arizona Wildcats. Knight showed his true form in this tilt by scoring 18 points and grabbing many re- bounds. However, the scoring honors went to the Wildcat ' s Ernie AAcCray who netted a huge 29 points. The Ags commanded a 35-21 bulge at the intermission. Mr. Price is caught in act of stealing bait NMSU ASU . 66 58 The Aggies made it two in a row over their Arizona foes while on the road. This is a feat in itself, for it ' s a known fact that the Arizona schools are double hard to beat on their home courts. Knight again turned the trick as he led the Ags with 14 points. The win pushed the Aggie season record to 12 wins and 3 losses. It also placed NMSU in the position of " team to beat " in the Conference race. VINCENT KNIGHT NMSU TWC . . 71 57 NMSU UNM . . 78 66 The Aggies grabbed Conference win num- ber three at the expense of faltering Texas Western. The Aggies jumped into a quick lead, and never gave the Miners a chance to show what they had. Knighton paced the 71-57 victory with a big 25 points. Knight added another 24. It was a case of sweet revenge in this tilt, as the Aggies clubbed the Lobos of the up-state U. to the tune of 78-66. Knighton led all scorers with 23 points. The half time score read 40-32 in favor of NMSU. The win gave the Ags a total of 14 wins and 3 losses for the year. GEORGE KNIGHTON NMSU . . . 79 PC . . . 56 In the opening game of their third west coast trip, the NMSU Ags completely crushed little Pasadena College by a 79-56 margin. George Knighton put in his best performance point wise, of the season, as the big gun hit for 32 points. The Ags had held a 39-22 half-time lead.

The 66-56 loss they handed the Aggies ended an eight game winning streak, and lowered the impres- sive NMSU record a notch to 15 and 4. Darrell Bushmiaer was high for the Ags with 14 mark- ers, while the winners were led by hot shot John Berberich with 17. The half time score read in favor of the Bruins. Come on, George, you gotta stretch if you want the little ball. NMSU TWC . . 80 52 The Aggies returned home for a short stay, but in that time belted the Texas Western Miners 80-52 in one of the most one sided games of the year. The second team was put in by Askew in an effort to hold the score down, but to no avail. Knighton managed to score 26 points before being ejected from the contest. The win was the fourth Conference victory in a row. HSU . NMSU 68 66 BILLY JOE PRICE The Aggies dropped their first Conference game of the season while on the road against a highly un- der-rated Hardin-Simmons five. The 68-66 loss dropped the Aggies back into third place with five games to go. Knight was high scorer for the night with 20 points to his credit. At this point the Aggies had a 15 and 5 over-all record. WTS . NMSU 66 . 65 GERALD ROBISON NMSU HSU . . 63 58 The West Texas State Buffaloes completed the sweep of NMSU by Texas teams on this road trip. A stolen ball and an easy lay- up with thirty seconds left dealt the Aggies their sec- ond Conference setback. Knighton paced the Aggie scoring with 26 points. Price netted 1 5. Back on their home court once more, the Aggies were faced with the task of winning their next four games to be able to take the Championship. In their first test, the Cowboys from Hardin-Simmons fought down to the wire before falling 63-58. A perfect 16 for 1 6 at the free throw line kept HSU in the game. Price and Knight shared the scoring honors with 16 points apiece. Step number one . . . Put your little foot . 178 NMSU WTS . . 92 59 After losing to West Texas State only the week before, many local fans thought that this match would prove very close. As the 92-59 score indicates, many local fans were wrong. Knighton ran up a 31 point total for the night, and he was pushed from teammates Knight with 26 and Price with 19 as Askew cleared the bench. The half time score read 55-24 in the Aggies favor. The win improved the Aggies over-all record to 1 8 an 6 and it also gave them a 6 and 2 Conference record. This game was, in fact, just a warm up for the next two against the Arizona boys. NMSU ASU . 80 65 With little ease, the Aggies faked, dribbled, and shot their way past the Sun Devils of Ari- zona State. The final score saw the lads from Tempe on the short end of 80-65. Knighton pumped in 27 markers during the course of the evening while playmaker Knight managed to groove 21. The half time score stood 48-32 as the Aggies showed their determination to be- come the new Border Conference Champions. NMSU UA . . 76 46 In the final regular season game of the year, the Ags had the job of getting by always tough University of Arizona. This game meant even more . . . the Championship. If the Aggies could stop high scoring Ernie McCray, they were in. McCray ended the evening with a grand total of 13 points, a few lower than his Conference lead- ing average of 24. The Aggies punched their way into the crown with a smashing 76-46 win. Once again, consistent George Knighton led the Ag charges with 22 points. The half time score showed the Aggies in the lead by 45-22. The win put the season record at 20 and 6, the best season since the 1938-39 year when NAASU won 16 without a loss. Now to the big time. Aggies Robison, Knighton, Price, and Casanova happily carry Coach Presley Askew off the court after winning the Border Conference title in a 76-46 victory ovef the University of Arizona. NCAA PLAY-OFF GAME The New Mexico State University Aggies traveled to Corvallis, Oregon, for their -.first round NCAA play-off game with the University of Oregon. People in Corvallis remembered the Aggies from their fine showing in the Far West Classic during the Christmas vacation. As a result, the partisan crowd was happy to see the Aggies jump off to an early lead against the favored Ducks. NMSU kept increasing their lead until they led at intermission 34-27. Knighton ' s sharp- shooting provided the margin of the lead. But the buzzer that started the second half must have startled the Aggies as the lead started to slip and at one point, with the Ags out front 48-44, the Ducks scored 1 1 straight points and were never threatened again. The final score read 68-60 in favor of Oregon U. This marked the second year in a row that the Aggies had been defeated in the opening round of NCAA play. Last year Idaho State squeaked by the NMSU five 62-61. George Knighton scored 22 points before he was fouled out with eight minutes of playing time remaining. Robison and Price contributed 1 1 apiece in the losing cause. Five Oregon players ended the game in the double figures, and Charlie Warren led all five with 15. Although the Aggies did lose this im- portant tilt, their season record did end up 20 wins, and but 7 losses. Coach Askew should certainly be congratulated on his fine team. 179 FROSH BASKETBALL HARDCOURT YOUNGSTERS HAVE GOOD YEAR The 1959-60 Freshman Basketball Team.

Under the direction of Coach Askew, and student coaches Charlie Clark and Terry Washburn, the Freshman team managed a 6 win, 10 loss season.

In past years. Coach Allen has been lucky to even field a team at all, but in 1957, a team was formed, and from this small foundation a winning track team is at NMSU. Allen ' s 1960 squad worked from the start of the season toward one goal; the Border Conference Meet which was held in Las Cruces on May 14. The Aggies have never finished better than last in Border Conference track, but this year the hard work paid off and we now have a Third Place trophy for the efforts. Some of the individuals which were part of the 1960 team were really outstanding performers. But had it not been for the second and third place winners, the season record wouldn ' t have been so good. Pervis Atkins, Ed Whittle, and Bradshaw Murphy were the main torch carriers in the dashes, along with Bob Gaiters (in one meet). In the 440, Mike Mendoza, John Holt, and Charles " Sketter " Pettes grabbed all the points. David Needham, Ord Cox, and John France participated in the rough 880 yard run. Paul Patton, Joe Taylor, and Frank Burton were the leather lunged boys who ran the long mile and 2 mile run. In the 180 high hurdles, newcomers Jim Thomas, David Brown, and Jeff Biheller were the main competitors as were the same four in the 220 low ' s. The Aggie Mile Relay team was composed of several individuals which included Holt, Need- ham, Cox, Mendoza, Atkins, Thomas, Murphy, and Pettes. Atkins, Dick Rudzik, Jack Moss, and Tony Erickson flipped the discus. The shot-put event was handled by Moss, and Rudzik. Gerald Drake, Bruce McKeller, and Atkins participated in the javelin. Pettes and Brown carried the Aggies hopes in the broad jump. Pettes, Taylor, Thomas, and Brown were the high jumpers. And Atkins and McKeller were the main pole vaulters. A well rounded team . . .

The Junior College transfer was a constant winner in the mile and 2 mile run during the course of the season. Patton was named Outstanding Ath- lete at the Western Invitational Track Meet in which the Aggies downed four other schools. Paul also set the new school record in the mile at 4:22.2. A sure point getter, Patton will be counted upon heavily next year. PERVIS ATKINS Probably the greatest athlete to ever don a Maroon and White uniform, Atkins was a steady performer this past season. Atkins holds school records in three events (100, 220, and Discus) and has been on three relay teams which set new school standards. In the Border Conference Meet, " P. A. " took a second in the 100, a third in the 220, and was on the second place Mile Relay team for the Aggies. The 1961 season should see Pervis at his greatest as an Aggie. AGGIES CAPTURE THIRD IN CONFERENCE On May 14, 1960, the twenty-sixth Annual Border Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Track and Field Meet was held at the local Las Cruces High Track. A total of 106 men participated in the meet. The University of Arizona, with its depth and precision, walked off with first place honors with 69 points. Arizona State University placed second as predicted with 51 points. But everyone, including the opposing teams, was surprised when Conference doormat NMSU blazed into third place with 25 points. In the battle for fourth and fifth places, Texas Western College edged Hardin-Simmons 11-9. West Texas State failed to send a track team to the meet. Five Conference records were broken as the five teams locked horns. In the shot-put, Ray Hiscok of Arizona University tossed the 16 pound ball 56 ' 3 ' 2 " breaking his own record set the year before of 56 ' 1 ' 2 " . Larry Dunn of Arizona broke the 100 yard dash record of 9.7 with a 9.6 per- formance. NMSU ' s Pervis Atkins was second, not one pace off. Harry Lucky, also of Arizona, knocked the 180 high hurdle standard from 14.3 to 14.1 as the Aggie ' s Jim Thomas was pushing him all the way. In the Discus a new record was set raising the old distance from 162 ' 11 " up to 183 ' 11 ' 2 " , a gain of 21 feet. But perhaps the most spectacular event of the day was the 220 low hurdles. The existing record was a blistering 23.8, and the new holder is New Mexico State University ' s Jim Thomas. The slight speedster out-fought the best in Arizona for the first place, and don ' t think the crowd didn ' t get a kick out of that. Paul Patton also won the heart of the fans as he picked up two second places in his events, the mile and 2 mile run. He was battling against the best college distance runner in the nation in Alex Henderson of Arizona State. Another NMSU athlete which went out to win was Bruce McKellar. Bruce set a new school record in the Pole Vault by clearing the 13 ' 6 " mark, six inches better than he had ever done before. McKellar placed fourth in his event. The NMSU Mile Relay team was made up of Atkins, Bradshaw, Murphy, John France, and Jim Thomas. This team came so close to beating Arizona State ' s middle distance runners that it was a moral victory to come in second. The 1960 team came from never-better-than-last, to a big third place in the Border Conference. Stick around; things could get better for next year. 183 BASE THE 1960 TEAM The 1960 NMSU Baseball Team.

Talk about your improvements . . .) SEASON RUNDOWN NMSU, in the years past, has never been known for its Golf team. However, with this last year ' s team improved to such an extent over previous teams, the students of NMSU can look for a much brighter future. Coach J. Paul Boushelle can do nothing but rave about the play of this year ' s team, and especially the con- sistent play of Warren Bush. In the teams final meet against Hardin-Simmons U. both Bush and Danny Stevens downed the Cowboys number one and two man, but the HSU reserves added enough for a 6 ' 2-5 ' 2 victory over the Aggies. The NMSU XSolf team is made up of, STANDING: Danny Stevens, Coach .1. Paul Boushelle, and J. B. Alexander. KNEEL- ING: Warren Bush, Jr., and Tommy Veal. Bush and Charlie Johnson, who will return next year, will form the 1960-61 nucleus. RIFLE RIFLE TEAM TAKES 3rd IN BORDER SEASON RECORD Paso del Norte League: 21 wins and 14 losses State Meet: Expert Class Border Conference: Third Place behind Arizona and Arizona State SEASON RUNDOWN The Aggies Rifle Team, under the su- pervision of SFC J. R. Funk, participated in the Paso del Norte Rifle League which is made up of 9 local clubs and 12 teams. The competition in this league is as rough as anywhere in the nation. The Aggies number one " gun " was Otto Wilden- steiner. Wildensteiner posted the individ- ual high score in the Border Conference Meet late in the spring. Otto also won his match in the sectional matches. Gradua- tion won ' t touch the team this year. Atembers of the Rifle Team include, STANDING: Charlie Coffee, Team Coach SFC J. R. Funk, and Ron Morris. KNEELING: Billy Littlefield, Tom Powell, and Otto Wildensteiner. The Aggie Riflemen posted 21 wins this season while only losing 14. It might be interesting to note that the Aggies met and defeated the Texas Western Rifle team no less than 8 times this past season. The same team should be around next year. 186 TENNIS AGGIE NETTERS HAVE 4-4 SEASON Pictured above is the NMSU Tennis team. STANDING is Larry Hale, Ira Clark, Jr., and Coach James Delamater. KNEELING is George Newman. Other members not pictured are Phil Camperdon and Roy Fox. The 1959-60 Aggie Tennis team showed much improvement over any other season in the school ' s long history. The schedule provided Coach Delamater ' s men with eight rough matches, and the team also traveled to Tucson, Arizona for the University of Arizona Open on April 7. The Aggies were also represented in the Burges Invitational in El Paso early in the season. In their first match of the season, the Aggies surprised Texas Western by taking 3 of 4 games in the singles and 1 of 2 games in the doubles for a 4-2 victory. Larry Hale and George Newman established ' their ranking of number one and two men in this meet. The Ags then traveled to Roswell where they whitewashed the Military Institute 6-0. Returning home, the Aggies ran head- long into powerful Wyoming University and lost two matches by a 6-0 count. The Cowboys went on to win the Skyline Championship. A return match with TWC saw the Aggies fall 4-2. Hale and Newman won their matches, but the same two could do nothing in the doubles. New Mexico Military Institute once again found the Aggies too much as they became victims of a 7-0 shutout. The Eastern New Mexico University Greyhounds journeyed to Las Cruces only to return to Por- tales with a 6-1 defeat at the hands of the NMSU squad. In the last match, TWC proved to be the power in the doubles as the Miners evened out the Aggie record at 4 and 4 with a 4-2 win. Pros- pects are better than ever for even a better team next year. The new tennis courts might make a big difference for the Aggies. SEASON RECORD 25 2 5 6 NMSU 4 TWC . .2 April April April May 22 23 26 3 TWC -- 4 NMSU 7 NMSU 6 TWC 4 NMSU NMMI ENMU NMSU ?

New Mexico 3rd By virtue of their total points over the season, the Aggies placed 3rd in their Re- gion. The placing was done on a points per performance system. The National Rodeo was held in Clayton, New Mexico, on June 16, 17, and 18. Three NMSU team members qualified for the trip. Tommy Perez, Geral Marr, and Sara Cox. All three will be able to perform in all their events, but will not be able to compete for the team trophy. TEAM MEIVIBERS Aggie team members for the past year were: Andy Nunez, Alfred Johnson, Tommy Perez, Gerald Marr, Sara Cox, and Dub Cox. Alternates were: Sandy Crocker, Jerry Green, Ted Arviso, Betty Sue Pendelton, Margo Cox, Andy and Ed Sanchez. Hang on, Andy, hang on . . . Aggie Andy Nunez is shown high on the leather at the annual NA SU Rodeo. The Aggies made a good showing for 3rd place. Now here ' s how we rope a calf . . . Another shot at the NMSU Rodeo. This marked the second year that the annual affair was held in the new college arena. The three perform- ances were held in perfect weather, and that ' s something new for NA SU. 188 RODEO RECORD CROWDS WATCH NMSU RODEO Man, that ' s a lot of bull there! The stock that was used at the NMSU Rodeo was that used in the World Championship Rodeo held ii " . Dallas earlier in the year. At the annual NAASU spring rodeo, a record number of people from the Las Cruces area turned out to watch the Aggies take Third Place. Sul Ross State and Texas Tech proved to have too much strength for the Aggies. Three of the nation ' s top college rodeo performers just happened to be in the same region as the Aggies. Edd Workman of Lubbock Chris- tian College, and Jim Bush and Pete Lewis of Sul Ross are regarded as among the best in the country. Workman took all-round cowboy honors this year, but in the girls ' division, Delia Inmons of NMSU grabbed the trophy. Hard work by the Aggie Rodeo Club and their sponsors proved to be the key in the successful Aggie Rodeo. In the Southwestern Region, to which the NMSU team belongs, there are never less than ten teams representing their schools at each rodeo. Colleges and universities from Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, and New Mexico can be found during the course of the season. New Mexico State University can certainly be proud of their team, for in the past five years the NMSU team has fought its way into the National Championship on three occasions. By counting heads at the three performances at last year ' s Aggie Rodeo, one can ' t help but see that interest in the team is growing and will con- tinue to grow if the people that are running the show can remain inter- ested themselves. Many students around NMSU don ' t realize that the Rodeo Team is just as much a part of them as is the football team or basketball team. A much improved relationship came about this past year, but improvements can still be made. This cowboy had a good eye. Some of the times turned in at the NMSU Rodeo were good enough to place anywhere. •• ' dL2.- : ' -.,it T:- ' ' f!i ■ y - The 1960-61 Rodeo team might find things a bit rough as the NMSU riders are losing quite a few to graduation. However, as long as NMSU has a rodeo team, you can bet that the school will be well represented. At the right we see NMSU stu- dent Ray Ford trying to hang on to his animal. 189 INTRAMl PHI TAUS TAKE CROWN FROM TEKES Shown above is Intramural Director Vaughn Corley presenting the Intrarpural Trophy to the win- ning Phi Taus at the spring swimming meet.

Las Cruces Citizen Printers and Publishers Since 1902 " The House of Good Impressions " DIAL JA 6-5575. JA 6-5576 289 After three years as Editor of the Swastika, my name is at last coming down from over the Swastika office door. The past three years have brought many changes to NMSU and to the Swastika. To the Swastika an index was added, the page size was increased to the college 9x12 page, the publication date was set in the fall as is becoming more popular throughout the United States. As for New Mexico State— the most important change was the new name- New Mexico State University of Agriculture, Engineering, and Science rather than New Mexico A M. The first Doctoral degree was conferred, a championship football and basketball team became a reality as other sports became stronger, a women ' s gym was built, the Richardson Room dining hall was added to Milton Hall, the Research Center was organized and became a reality, the Circle Drive was built. Old Hadley Hall was demolished and work begun on a new 620 man residence hall, PSL ' s national scientific prestige was greatly increased. These years have been ones of mixed emotions for me. Anxiety, intense pleas- ure, deep depression, and just plain jitters have all been present. They have been wonderful years for me and 1 hope for you. I will always consider them the best years of my life. Thank you. VERNON WADE 290 YEARBOOKS TAYLOR PUBLISHING COMPANY The World ' s Best Yearbooks Are Taylor-made "
