After graduating from Hearne High .School in 1948 where he was a four-year letterman outstanding back for the Eagles, Tidwell entered A&M 'University where he earned more honors in 1949, 1950 and 1951 as a halfback for the Aggies. A strong, durable runner, Tidwell was named All Southwest Conference Player in 1951. Tidwell then joined the San Francisco 49ers but only played for a short time after aggravating a head injury received while at A&M. ; Tidwell, who is 44 years old and a professor of physical education at Sam Houston, officially took on his new duties Saturday, July 6. He Was an assistant football coach for the Sam Houston Bearkats from 1955 through 1966. He replaces Allen Boren as head football coach. Boren resigned to become athletic director at Klein High School. Dr. Harold Fischer, who had served as athletic director and director of men's physical education, will devote full time to his other duties in the physical education department. Tidwell received his bachelors degree from A&M, his masters from Sam Houston and is scheduled to earn his doctorate from A&M on August 16. A strong advocate of fundamental football tactics, Tidwell admits that his selection with less than three months left before the Bearkats opening game with Texas Southern University of Houston in the Astrodome September 14 puts him behind in preparation. "I'm most familiar with old-timey football," he said. "We hope to have a well- disciplined program and will make every effort not to be embarrassed." While Tidwell was an assistant at Sam Houston, the Bearkats won 70, lost 37 and tied seven including three Lone Star Conference Championships, one conference co- championship and a NAIA national co-championship in 1964.

Benchley News Sam Rice Jr. Things do happen in the country. A Southern Pacific train and a large gravel truck met on the Benchley crossing. Thankfully, no one was really injured badly but the truck was in two pieces—on each side of the track—only another reminder of how carefully we need to drive when on the road. We hbpe the new crossing being built will be less dangerous. The OSR is being connected straight across; it won't pass through Benchley as it now does.
