H. Poteet, presi- dent of A(SI, It was constructed in the twenties, when the institution was the South Texas State Teachers College. College Hall is the center of important activity at A6cl. No student passes more than a week without finding some business that takes him within its walls. New students are introduced to the building during registration. The Registrar ' s Office, in the west wing, records general information about each student. In the center of the building, on both first and second floors, is the Library. In the east wing IS the business office. Upstairs in the wmgs are offices of the president and the deans. ' ■ . ' ; , ' ' -.-i-i - ' ?- ' s« ' . AiXi " CAMPUS The Student Union Building is the center of social life at A(SI. It was completed m November of 1950. In the west wing is located the Bookstore, where college students buy their books and school sup- plies. In the east end of the building is the Tejas Room (the college coffee shop) where students and faculty alike meet to drink coffee. Also located in the building are the Union Ballroom, the game room, a lounge, offices, and numerous club meet- ing rooms. Television and movies are included in the organized recreation program. U ; ' J ' ' s; ' ' ::? ' 2K:5 ' . ' • ' 21■ . ' iS•SvM;■(fS 5■,■ Jones Auditorium, located east and north of the old Ad- ministration Building, is the scene of many collegiate dramatic performances, assemblies. Artists Course Series productions, and high school interscholastic league func- tions. CAMPU S Shown above is the old Administration Building, now officially referred to as the Main Academic Building. Many courses in business administration, languages, social sciences, agriculture, art, journal- ism, mathematics, and speech are taught here. It also houses many department and division offices and the Office of Student Publications. It was the first classroom building on the campus. Between the Main Academic Building and Nierman Hall is this archway, where students stop on numerous occa- sions to wait for classes. Jack Heacock and George Bogusch are doing that just now. CAMPUS Framed beneath the sweeping arch of the tree in the picture above is Nierman Science Hall, home of all departments in natural science at A l. In the build- ing are numerous classrooms and laboratories. Its hall is also the shortest route from the main academic building to theTejas Room, as professors with offices in the building are highly aware. Women students in home economics use this building as their model home. Advanced students live here for a time as part of their required work. It is located just west of Nierman Hall. CAMPUS i n , ♦ ■ ' I 1 ' M 1 ' Seale Hall, a two-story brick structure located across the street from the Old Administration Build- ing, was constructed in 1935. It houses 100 students in 10 five-bedroom suites. Mrs. Bess T. (Mom) White, dormitory director, makes her residence in the suite just to the right of the main entrance. i M i i i - I - ■ ■■ 1 :;:imediately . ' ' ■ ' ■ i .• -. •: . . v.:. May Hall. This two-story brick structure houses 165 men. It was completed in the fall of 1949. CAMPUS Located west of Seale and Loftin halls is Cousins Hall, one of the two women ' s dormitories. It, like Seale, was constructed in 1935. Located just inside the main door is the reception room and the social room. Residence director is Miss Lola Keeney. One of the first phone numbers learned by male students on the campus is, 2-2141. Located to the rear of Cousins is Lila Bough Hall, the counterpart of the men ' s residence. May Hall. Its switch- board phone is 2-7311. Director is Mrs. Ora Parker. CAM?U The Methodist Student Center, completed early last September, just off the campus, is the focal point of Methodist student activities on the A I campus. The building houses complete game room facilities, classroom, and workrooms. It is located north and east of Jones Auditorium on Armstrong Street. John R Gibbs IS director of Wesley Foundation activities. South of Jones Auditorium is the Baptist Student Center, home of the Baptist Student Union. The building is equipped in the same manner as the Methodist Center. Donnal Timmons is director. North of the Gymnasium is the Engineering Build- ing. The one-story brick and tile structure, com- pleted in 1951, houses the electrical engineering power laboratory, electrical engineering measure- ment and electronics, communication, a drafting room, geology laboratory, and classrooms. Also located here are the offices of the Division of Engi- neering. 7 wmm Loftin Hall, located between the men ' s and women ' s dormitories, is the main dining hall for the campus. Many students other than those living in dormitories take their meals here. CAM? us Across the street from the Engineering Building is the A6tl Gymnasium, home of the Javelina basket- ball team. It houses classrooms, offices of the De- partment of Health and Physical Education, training rooms, a basketball court, and a smaller gymnasium for miscellaneous activity. Adjoining the building is a swimming pool, which is used for class activity and recreation. Above is lavelina Stadium, which was completed in 1951. It is located north of the main campus area on Armstrong Street. Its seating capacity is 7,000. Light towers in the background are 125 feet high. CAMPUS The building at right provides hving quarters ior varsity athletes who are married. It is located adjacent to the Intramural Field and to the rear of the bachelor quarters of Javelina Courts. To the right is a view of the Javelina Courts Dining Hall. At either side of the dining hall are the Javelina Courts bachelor quarters. A majority of stu- dents participating in college athletics at A I live m the Courts area. C 0r 0 i ; : ' ' f ' ' ! ? There are those who stay on and on To watch thousands come and then leave anon To other brighter destinies PRESIDENT 1i- (f Traditionally, El Rancho has presented at the opening of its section devoted to Administration a letter irom the A I president to the student body — a letter designed to inspire students to strive toward ever higher goals. This year, however, it is our thought that this purpose may be served by a glance at what the Administration has done for A I. Outstanding dedicated accomplishment is itself inspirational. All men can have dreams, but in- spired men with the will to work turn their dreams into realities. A I has been fortunate through the years in having a succession of such men and women guiding its destinies. Physical development of the College in the last few years is a major testi- monial of the vision and hard work of President E. H. Poteet, his predecessor Dr. E. N. Jones, members of the Board of Directors, faculty members, and others devoted to building a greater A I. Other administrative work, however, presents problems just as difficult as those of development. Solution of these problems leaves no landmark other than continued steady progress of the enterprise. It is characteristic of A6cl that while these problems were being dealt with successfully new honors were being attained as evidence of standards of scholarship in the college. It is not our major purpose here to eulogize but simply to point to a job well done in the thought that as stu- dents we can ask no better example or inspiration. Dr. Poteet is shown above in his office, and to the left as he stands before A I ' s new administration building and library — College Hall. ■ •: -.;iT--| j;.

In the picture above a group of students are apply- ing a little class learning to practical field experience in judging beef cattle. Harry Treybig is shown making his test. Finding the moisture content of seed grain is an import- ant bit of knowledge for a South Texas farmer. David Neher, assistant professor of agriculture explains the test to Albert Hornung (foreground), Clare Van Shafer and Robert Jones. This picture was taken m Nierman Annex, where experiment and analysis are conducted by the agriculture division. Agricultural students are taught to meet nearly every problem that could arise for a farmer. Knowing an en- gine inside and out is one of the most important skills available to a farmer who operates the typical mech- anized farm of today. George Mertzbacher, farm shop laboratory assistant, stops to give Jerry Bell a few pointers on an engine re- conditioning job. CLASS TIME A modern farmer needs many skills to meet with his everyday problems. Nat Qualia, above, demonstrates the use of the metal lathe in turning a steel bar down to the proper size as a replacement axle for a trailer, or a master power shaft for farm wood-working tools. A broken harrow, a cracked trailer-hitch, a brazing job on a shovel blade are a few of the problems for a fellow who wants to be a farmer. Beryl Burgess, Wayne Brus- henhan, and Roger Anderson demonstrate a quick and inexpensive answer to these problems. Many other farm skills ore offered to students interested in agriculture. Brick-laying, carpentry,- soldering, forg- ing, cold metal work, pipe work, simple plumbing, paint- ing, rope work, and concrete pouring are just a few skills made available to the students. Farm students using many of these skills helped to build their own Agricul- tural Engineering Building. r ' y _ Above is an interior view of the Agricultural Engineering Building during one of the laboratory periods. CLASS TIME Weighing, testing, measuring, and collecting data are all part of the duties of a chemistry laboratory technician or a chemical engineer. Above Franciszek Olstowski and Emily Morrison demonstrate one of the experiments made familiar to them in their study of chemistry. A biology major studies nature at its best and at its worst; always there is something new and interesting. Danny Fossler and this baby skunk became good friends until the skunk tried its pungent prowess one evening and forced the temporary abandonment of one of the biology laboratories. Quantitative analysis is one of the tool skills of chemistry. Measurements as fine as the weight of a pencil mark on a piece of paper are important in the study of the chemi- cal composition of a substance. Joan Sughru, pre-med major, is shown at lower left as she weighs a small quan- tity of chemical for her experiment. CLASS TIME Biology isn ' t just the study of nature ' s creatures in thai; natural state and habitat; it includes the study of plant and animal tissues, simple plants and animals such as the Paramecium and the amoeba, virus and nature in all its forms. Above Jo Ann Howard, Sue Bishop, Elaine Hall and Pat Levens draw structural forms of nerve tissue viewed through their microscopes. At lower right is a portion of a class in elements of geo- graphy. Dr. Charles A. Bajza points out some of the land areas included in the class study. David White, Hester Lockett, James Brown, and Luane Durham observe. The economics chart seems to be confusina Ann Scott and Britton Vincent. Miss Ruth Bell says, " It ' s siinple. That ' s what happened to business in the U. S. since 1776. " CLASS TIME June Hunt reports on the effects of poliomyelitis and rehabilitation programs in the United States. Miss Edith Cousins, sociology professor listens and Ro- land Beckworth looks (top). In the picture at the upper right Dr. Hugh Croley is shown conducting a test in psychology of person- ality, using one of his students, John Haden. Dr. R. J. Galloway gives an impromptu lecture, trac- ing important centers of literary development in England. His two students shown in the picture are Carol Alsup (left) and Dons Blanton. Charles Holmes, instructor in journalism and gra- duate student, discusses a riicture editing problem with John Haden, editor of The South Texan. John is holding a journalism major ' s sliderule, a three table mechanical ratio used in measuring for en- laraement or reduction of pictures to be used in publication (bottom) CLASS TIME Billy Jaime (upper left) directs his classmates as part of his training in music conducting. Jeanie Meurer accompanies on the piano. Seated from left to right are Eddie Galvan, R. G. Jones, James Lott, Laura Saldana, and Ruth Saenz.

Seated from left to right are Ernesto Zepe- da, Humberto Saenz, Donovan Pierce, Vernon Hatch, and Bettye Wilkinson, In another area of fine arts students develop skills in the use of brush and oils as demonstrated above by Mrs, Maxine Dietert, Amando Hernandez, and Pedro Luna (right). Sculpturing is another artistic outlet offered to stu- dents. At the lower right Ed Gardener puts some of the finishing touches on his concrete creation. i CU SS TIME Home economics is a popular study among girls at A6cl. Miss Aline McKenzie, observes the class work oi lWO oi her students, Carol Lee Burgess and Mar- tha Isensee. Dr. W. D. Johnson, professor of foreign languages, lectures to his Spanish class, using special record- ings to emphasize points of pronunciation difficul- ties. A. Dane Bowen, history and government instructor, holds an informal history session in the A I Mu- seum. From left to right are Dick Stone, Vol Mora, Mr. Bowen, f-farold Rucker, Marianne Ratz, and Paul Long. J. E. Conner, history and government professor, watches as two of his students discuss some prob- lems in county government during their class in Texas government. Mannelle Turner and James Welty are the students shown. CLASS TIME Above Ben J- South, associate professor of mathe- matics, puts a group of integral calculus students through their paces at the blackboard. Pictured at the right are Bill Smith, C. R, Fuentes and Flora Ann Mathews. Homer Lasitter and Radon Loveland are shown op- erating a micro-wave transmitter during a labora- tory session in the Physics Building (upper left). Physics theory has its problems for Fred Evans as classmate Kay Eoff explains a " toughie " on the blackboard. Students at work in. A I ' s home demonstration kitchen are Jo Ann Wortham, Mary Jane Pfeiffer, Ann Nimmo, and Betty Monroe. This picture was taken during one of the Home Economics Depart- ment ' s laboratory periods. " im: iMi iSmmi MM : CLASS TIME Arnold C. Anderson, speech instructor, readies his speech team for contests at the annual San Marcos Speech Festival, where they debated, did competi- tive readings in literature and various types of pub- lic speaking Much of an A I speech major ' s activity lies not in the classroom but in activities related to his field of study, such as public speaking, debates, oral read- ings, dramatics, and radio voice. In the picture a group of students rehearse for their parts in Romeo and Juliet under the direction of Dr. Ted Skinner. m -- i ij . fii » ; d?e ' : i ' i 2! !i iM$MMl m ! Mk CLASS TIME Typing, shorthand, and dictation, have their part in business administration too. In the picture at the upper left Clark Baker instructs Molly Schle- singer in the proper placement of her hands on the keys. General fields of business administration open to students at A l include secretarial sciences, ac- counting, personnel management, banking and fi- nance, business law and real estate, insurance, sta- tistics, and marketing. Business statistics offers training in quantitative analysis of business problems, a vital part of busi- ness training.

JUNIOR Shortly before the torch was set to Homecoming bonfire, the Sophomores battled the Freshmen in their annual tug-of-war. Long after the struggle had officially ceased, a few stalwarts were still contesting the issue at the edge of the mud pit. In this strange scene of fire and figures was born the seed of a Homecoming victory. Hundreds of A I stu- dents ringed the bonfire as it shot its flames skyward south of Javelina Stadium.

JUNIORS And in November, Politics Became a Byword Campaigning in the presidential election was a stormy time for A I. Students and faculty took sides. Even the janitors paused in their never-ending tasks to discuss their political favorites in the fashion of most such dis- cussions — at the top of their voices. A " Students for Stevenson " group formed two weeks before the big elec- tion. The next night an " A l for Ike " club took up the challenge. The groups met in public discussion of the political issues, the session officially lasting two hours. (Members of the panel are shown in action above.) But students stayed and asked question after question (see picture at lower left). The next day students and faculty voted in a mock election. The outcome? Ike won. On November 4 members of both student political groups joined city organizations in bringing out Kingsville ' s big- gest vote, a whopping 82 per cent of the eligible voters.

Here is a story of sj First about the spirit of foptball The year ' s record in review S?ORT It ' s Saturday night. Javelina Stadium stands starkly silhouetted beneath the glare of the floodlights. A cool breeze from the north kicks up a light haze of dust as the Hogs and the opposing team warm up for the night ' s encounter. A hush fills the air as five thou- sand excited football fans await the kick-off. Smooth the wrinkle out of the blanket you are sitting on, get a firm grip on your date ' s hand, and you ' re ready for an evening of King Football. r PORTS The game has gone into the second half. The first string center lies injured on the sidelines. The Jave- linas are seven points behind and the visiting grid- sters are drivina for another score. Down on the Javelina bench Coach Mayhew drags on a cigarette as he scans the opponents ' offensive for a clue to a home team victory. Assistant Coach Ranspot checks with spotters high in the stands as a battle plan is formed. " Cover that left flat, he ' s slippmg behind vou again! " It ' s a tense moment for the Hoas. On the sidelines members of the offensive platoon shout advice and encouragement to their team mates. SPORT m ' .■ ' ;« Early in the fourth quarter the Hogs tie up the score. A few minutes later they take the offensive again, sending Reggie West crashing over for 15 yards. Then Fink scoots back for a pass, Norman Smith takes it in the end zone for another Jave- lina score. The ball is placed on the two. The teams line up. The ball is snapped. The kick goes high up over the uprights. It ' s good ' Five thousand people in the stands send up a throaty roar. The band joins the clamor with a few quick bars of the Javelina " Fight Song. " S?ORTS In the last few minutes of pldy the visiting team throws caution to the winds and plays a game of wide open football in a desperate attempt to even the score before the official ' s gun closes another chapter in Ail football history. Folks in the stands have a worried moment as the opponents drive deep in Javelina territory. Then the game is over. The Hog gridsters, tired but happy, head for the dressing rooms and the crowd pours out of the stands into the hundreds of cars gathered outside the stadium. Another game has been won. SPORTS The whole spirit of football doesn ' t rest just in the team. It lies in the hearts of the cheerleaders, in the students, in the good sportsmanship and friendly competition between schools.

A I stood up to the on- slaught for three quarters and then weakened to lose 41-12. 31 87 The turning point of the game came in the score- less third period when A I fumbled twice inside the Bobcat 15-yard line after long drives. At the be- ginning of the fourth period the Bobcats capitalized on a roughness penalty and went over for a TD from the A I one yard line. The Bobcats were unstoppable after that. Despite the one-sided score, it was Javelina Full- back Reggie West that turned in the best perform- ance of the evening. West averaged over 8 yards per carry in 27 trips through the line for a total of 266 yards. The Bobcats scored first on a 15-yard, run by Pence Dacus, quarterback. Their try for extra point failed. On the first play from scrimmage Reggie West answered for A I with a 65-yard scamper up the middle. On the third play after A l kicked-off to the Bob- cats, Leo Chafin ran 57 yards to A l ' s fourteen. Ed Schmeltekopf went over for the tally. Later in the first quarter A I marked 67 yards and scored as Bob HoUoway led the way over the goal for Jackie Fmk. In the final period Fritz Loeffer scored once and Chafin twice. The other Bobcat score came just be- fore the half on a pass from Dacus to Schmeltekopf. CO-CAPTAIN JACK SPORTSMAN 3-Yenr T.ettermnn CO-CAPTAIN BOB HOLLOWAY 3-Year Letterman rr. PORTS Javelinas Drop Opener To Lumberjacks Despite a hard running game and a good passing attack, the Javelinas dropped a 14-12 thriller to the Lumberjacks of Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches. Offensively A l was on par or better than SFA, but the Javelinas ' defense failed to stop the Lumberjacks. The entire difference between the two teams appeared to be that SFA had the ball 16 more plays than A I. A I ' s three running backs, Joe Hollingsworth, Reggie West, and Jack Sportsman averaged over four yards per carry. Jackie Fink, quarterback, con- nected on seven out of thirteen passes for 69 yards. The Javelinas took the lead early in the game. West drove over for the first TD of the neason. The Lumberjacks answered the score with one of their own and went into the lead when their extra- point kick was good. In the final period the Lumberjacks scored again to lead 14-6. In the closing minutes the Javelinas punched over for their last score to lose by a 2- point margin.

Little A I Halfback Al Yanez is about to be downed by a swarm of Sam Houston linemen, (picture below) A I lost this game 41-14. Fort Sam Houston Edges A6tl 7-6 Despite a rejuvenated defense the Javelinas went down for the third straight time as they were edged 7-6 by Fort Sam Houston of San Antonio. Things turned out much brighter for the Hogs than expected. A three-to-four touchdown under- dog going into the game, the Javelinas kept the Rangers ' star-studded backfield pretty well bottled up all evening. SPORT Lr T.Mi H H 9 Wtc wF vj n H rvS • ik; h L.. ' Scoring started in the middle of the second quar- ter when the Hogs took over on the Fort Sam 47. Half a dozen plays later Jackie Fink passed to Brandt for the score. The extra-point try went wide. A short time later the Jovelinas fumbled on their own 32. The Hogs held for four downs on the one. A quick kick was blocked and the Rangers utilized the break for a TD two plays later. The extra point was good and that was the margin of their victory. Tiger tackier snuffs out a long run by little Al Yanez of A l in the 41-32 scor- ing contest between A l and Trinity.

A6cl Loses Bout To Sam Houston 41-14 The Javelinas were passed dizzy at Huntsville as they chalked up their fourth loss in as many weeks. Riding on the arm of Donald Gottlob, the Bear- cats of Sam Houston State took the Hogs behind the woodshed for a 41- 14 trouncing. Suffering injuries from previous games, the Hogs fielded a make-shift line. The Bearcats added to the toll and Jackie Fink wound up the game doing all the ball carrying and pass- ing for the backfield. The Javelinas took the kickoff af+er the fifth Bearcat touchdown in the third quarter and moved 69 .yards for a TD. West carried and Al Lopez converted. Fink passed to Norman Smith late in the fourth period for ASrl ' s final score. Joe Couch set up the score on an inter- ception and a 44-yard runback. Mac Moore and Benny Boles led the Bearcat TD parade with two each. Larry Kieslinq and Bill Nelsort scored one each. Kiesling caught a pass for one extra point and Moore converted after four. 11 SPORTS Trinity Tigers Down Hogs 41-32 in Wild Scoring Spree In one of the wildest offensive exhibitions ever staged in Javelina Stadium, the Trinity Tigers out- scored the Javelinas 41-32. The Tigers proved that they could move both on the ground and in the air. It was their air attack that proved fatal for the Hogs. In the first half Alvin Beal, Tiger quarterback, passed 31 yards to Sam Sanchez, 30 yards to Fred Copps, and 55 yards to Tommy Majors for Trinity ' s tirst three touchdowns. Jack Lester added all three extra points. Fink passed to William Putnam for six yards and A I ' s first touchdown in the initial period. Al Lopez converted. In the second quarter Fink passed to Norman Smith for 30 yards and a second TD. Second-half touchdowns scored by Trinity were by Sanchez and Charles Brown on passes and Beal on a four-yard run. Lester kicked two of the three extra points. In the fourth quarter Fink scored twice on one- yard plunges and Smith scored on an 18-yard pass play. Lopez added one extra point. A I Downs Sul Ross Lobos 27-13 for First Victory A I ' s fighting Javelinds scored 20 points in the last quarter, coming from behind to down the Sul Ross Lobos 27-13 before A I ' s Homecoming crowd. The Javelina victory ended a five-game losing streak for the Hogs. The Hogs spotted the Lobos 13 points in the first quarter, but managed to get seven points back in the second period. After a scoreless third period, AcSI ran wild. It was quite an upset for the Lobos who had downed Sam Houston, which ran over A I 41-14 earlier in the season. Early in the game, after an exchange of punts, A I fumbled on the Sul Ross 34-yard line. A pass C. T.

Lopez converted once more. Wildcats Drub Javelinas In First Conference Game The never-say-die Abilene Christian Wildcats came roaring back in the second half to run over the Javelinas 48-13 in Abilene. A I scored first v hen Reggie West climaxed an 82-yard drive with a TD. Al Lopez converted. ACC started a drive, but the Hogs stalled them on the five-yard line early in the second quarter. A punt into the wind by Jack Sportsman went out on the 32. The Wildcats took the ball from there and went over to score. A I led 7-6 at halftime. On the second play of the second half the Hogs added one more score with Joe Hollingsv orth carry- ing the package 66 yards around end. West made the TD from the ten in two tries. From then on it was ACC ' s game. Tv o fumbles on the A I 15-yard line handed the Wildcats two touchdowns.

PORTS A I Tops Howard Payne For First Conference Win The Javelinas scored 14 points in the second quar- ter, then held the Howard Payne Yellow Jackets to seven points to chalk up their first conference vic- tory of the year. A I put together two 60-yard drives in the early stages of the second period and spent the rest of the evening protecting the lead. Reggie West was the leading ground gainer of the game, besting Howard Payne ' s Melvin Lindsey for the total offense lead in the conference. A l ' s first score came after a series of short gains with West carrying over from the one and Al Lopez converting. Shortly thereafter the Hogs took a punt return and started a drive which tallied on Jackie Fink ' s bootleg play from 30 yards out. Ben Sudderth scored the only touchdown for the Yellow Jackets. A penalty nullified an earlier attempt by Melvin White. The game ended with A6tl on the Howard Payne 13. Jackie Fink passed to Sportsman, who carried the ball over from 30 yards out for the first score for the Javelinas in the A6,I-McMurry game. Final out- come was McMurray 21, A I 20.

It was a wild game, marked by passing and penalties, and a disagreement between officials, players, and coaches over the keeping of time. A6.I had one touchdown called back and the officials stopped another Javelino well on the way for a score with no one near him. The game started m quiet enough fashion. Two Austin College drives were stopped by the Jave- linas deep in A I territory The start of the second period was the signal for fireworks to begin. On the first play in the period the Hogs scored on a 49-yard pass from Fink to Robert Brandt. After the kickoff the Kangaroos were forced to punt. Roland Beckworth received for A l and ran to Austin ' s 14-yard line, fumbled, and Jack Sports- man recovered for the Hogs. Reggie West scored and Al Lopez converted. Midway in the third period the Kangaroos sparked a 73-yard drive for a touchdown. Jerry Sims of Austin carried. Austin scored again m tne lourtn period when Billy Bookout drove over from the twelve. A I fol- lowed the tally with a score of their own. Sports- man carrying and Al Lopez converting. Charles Bons of Austin scored on a 15-yard pass from Don Watson.

McMurry took a 14 point lead in the first quar- ter, but the Javelinas came back to score once in each of the remaining periods. Al Lopez kicked the first two extra points, but Bill Sisson, McMurry tackle, stopped the third conversion. With less than three minutes left in the game and A l leading 20-14, Mickey Martin passed to Buddy Fornes for 41 yards and a McMurry TD. Phillip Conanway converted for the Indians. The first Indian score came on a punt return by Hartwell Martin. The second came one minute later when Bob Loving intercepted a pass on the A I 26 and went for the TD.

The Javelinas wrapped up their 1952 grid season with a rousing 49-0 victory over Heroico Colegio Militar of Mexico at Harlingen in A I ' s first Inter- national Bowl game. The Hogs struck like lightning through the rain and mud and cold, but unlike lightning they struck often in the some spot. The team from the West Point of Mexico was completely outclassed and outweiohed Other A5tl scores came on a pass from Jackie Fink to Norman Smith, again on the same combina- tion, a 24-yard run by Wesley Taylor, a 20-yard run by Joe Hollingsworth, and Fink to Sportsman for the final score.

After the many weeks of work put into the pro- duction by the cast and stage crew, it is even doubtful that the Statue of Liberty would object to Yvonne ' s parody. Lee Dismukes, garbed for the role of Benvolio in the Footlights Club pro- duction of " Romeo and Juliet, " relaxes between scenes. Lee played this dif- ficult role convincingly enough to fool her closest friends. In the picture to the right George Bogusch plays the dramatic death scene of Mercutio to the hilt. Dick Humes (Romeo) and Lee Dismukes (Benvolio) show their deep- est concern for the death of their friend.
