Of this number Texas has won 139, lost 45 and tied 4. The Thanksgiving Day game is the only one remaining to be plaved this year.

The outcome of the classic of the present season, the Texas-A. & M. game Thanksgiving Thanksgiving Day, will add one game to the total played. "PRAYING COLONELS" PLAY TULANE UNIV.

The big Sells Floto circus arrived in Bryan early this morning and the Hryan railroad yards are tilled with cars belonging to the three trains used to transport the big show with its DIG people and more man 500 head of horses around the county- Hundreds of bryan citizens lamented lamented the fact that tne circus chose this day for its exhibition and thought that the circus wouid suffer through the fact that tomorrow is foot-baii day and that the classics of the year is about to be played here. It seemed that the citizens were the ones who grieved and mt the circus management management for the first thing which happened happened this morning was the purchasing purchasing of dozens of wards of red and white for decorations of the big eight and ten horse teams. Then officials tor the big show motored to the College College and returned with more than a hundred rooters with their chief yell captain. When the parade started; the boys climbed aboard big cages, dens and wagons and the very air was split with college yells and plow-share racket. Every time circus ladies eith-j er on cages or horse back passed; the J boys would render a military salute while the ladies would bow their prettiest. prettiest. The college boys enjoyed themselves, themselves, all of the 916 circus folks en- ' joyed themselves and the enormous down town crowds of spectators be- hel dthe first circus parade ever staged in which a College held a prominent part. Tonight the 62 \ piece A. and M. college band will be at the big circus with their hundreds 1 of rooters and every one will get their j voice in trim for the yelling tomor-! row. The parade appeared on the down ! town streets promptly at 11 o’clock and ‘just as advertised”. Every den and cage was open to inspection and , Sells Hoto displayed all the different species of wild animal life in their prime. The one feature which made a great impression was the magnifi-l cent condition of the grey Percheron specimens in wonderful condition. The scores of circus ladies were not the usual circus type but were really pretty. It was a parade worth looking at. A Big Snappy Program. When the doors to the big circus opened at 1 ’clock; the midway was nronged with enthusiastic circus fans. It did not appear tnat the football game tomorrow had any effect on their desires to be entertained. The circus is replete with its three rings and two stages and from the time the whistle blew; it was a constant buzz of ‘something doing.” The Sells-Floto circus program is strictly a straight circus entertainment entertainment consisting of aerial, acrobatic, tumbling, leaping, statuary, trapese, roman-ring, flyingladder, cloud- swings and iron jaw acts all mixed up with the wonderful bareback riders, riders, trained elephants, horses, ponies, mules, seals, monkeys, dogs and donkeys. donkeys. There were seven ‘’thrillers in place of the customary and seven times the big audience roared forth their approval. Mile Berta Zeason, a charming French girl presented the most wonderful tight-wire dancing act ever seen here. She completely won the hearts of terpichorean lovers. The famous flying Nelson family of aerialists aerialists performed “high over-head’.’ and were even more daring than ever. A man named Shubert; dislocated himself a dozen times from a lofty swing and a cute little Jap woman made quick work of six "thugs.” Taking the Sells Floto circus program program as a whole; it w’as thé cleanest and largest circus performance ever seen in Bryan. Not one word or act could be termed off-color. It is really a circus that is different and is symbolic symbolic of the color of its cages, uniforms uniforms and even poles. Whito predominated predominated every place and white is the color of purity. Mayhap the slogan of ‘’the purity circus” would be a good line for the circus management to use in their advertisements. There will be another performance 1 this evening at eight o’clock and with | the college boys band in attendance dus their mob of loyal rooters; there will be plenty doing at the final show.

AGGIES ALWAYS WINNERS OVER TEXAS LONGHORNS 1 Respite the Bluster in Austin Texas Longhorns jviiovv mey nave a Keai name—Aggies nave iNever JDeen neieateu on lnanKsgivmg nay oy Longnorns on Kyie rieiu at nonege station. (By Lloyd J. Gregory). Austin, Texas, Nov. 23.—Determined to overcome the jinx wmcd nas proved so disastrous to Longnora elevens ot otner years which assayed to achieve victory on Kyle bleid, the Varsity Varsity eleven wnl go into Thursday’s game with the Aggies prepared prepared lor a better struggle. Oüds which are being quoted on me Texas University team to win are being discounted by those laminar witn tne Longhom-Farmer games of the past, always on Turkey Day. It matters not how the two teams have conducted conducted themselves in games played earlier in the seaspn, the two elevens tight it out on even terms. For this reason, no overconfidence overconfidence prevades the members of the Longhorn squad. The Longhorns nave never defeated the Aggies on Kyle field. it is expected that but few changes will be made by the Texas coaching staff in the line-up which has started the majority majority of the games already played. The work of the Longhorn forwards has featured every encounter of the Texas team. Against the huge Vanderbilt linesmen, alone, did the Varsity forwards fail to clear a path for their backs. Upon the work of the Longhorn first line of defense does the victory or defeat of the University of Texas team depend. In George McCullough and Joe Moore at ends, the Longhorns Longhorns boast of two of the most efficient wing-men in the Southwest. Southwest. McCulloch is by consent of all the greatest wing guardians guardians seen in Southern football for many a day. He combines every essential necessary' in the make-up of a great football player. On the defensive, opposing backs find his wing invulnerable. invulnerable. While on the offensive, McCullough runs fine interference, interference, and is the surest sharer of a forward pass on the Varsity Varsity squad. Captain Dennis and Pena will likely start at tackle. Both of these men are big, powerful, fast and have the added advantage of long gridiron training, tl was the spectacular catch oi a forward pass in the last game with the Aggies by Dennis which made the Varsity victory possible. In all likelihood, Hill and Gray will get the call for the guard positions. Hill is a veteran, and although rather light for his position, has no superior in Southwestern football. Gray, playing playing his second year at football, has been developing fast, under the tutelage of Line Coach Seddon, and Aggie backs will find his side of the line hard to penetrate. Swede Swenson should give to the Longhorns a tremendous advantage of long gridiron training. It was the spectacular and most consistent center in the Southwest. His steady pass ing can not be eclipsed. On the defensive, because of his great reach and strength, he is most effective in backing up the line. Just what combination of backs Coach Whitaker will elect to send against the Aggies is problematical. Elam may start at quarter; on the other hand, many think that the veteran Rats Watson will direct the team on the field. Other quarters who may see action are Townsend, Gardere and Brown. Because of his punting ability. Townsend is the most likely selection of the last three named. Should McCaUum, the sensational half of the Longhorns be unable to go into the game, the chances for a Longhorn victory' will be materially decreased. It is also, doubtful doubtful whether or not Robertson, upon whom the burden rC punting and passing has fallen in previous games, will be able to play. With both of these men incapacitated, the most likely guesses for halves are Hemsill and Sens. The presence of three capable capable full-backs upon the Longhorn squad would indicate that the Aggie forwards will have plenty of chances to stop line plunges. Dominguez, who threw himself across the line for the only touchdown of last year's Turkey Day game, Gilstrap and Tynes are all terrific line rippers. At present the greatest problem be tore the Texas coaches is the solving of the kicking and passing problems. Townsend and Dominguez will probably do the greatest part of the punting while Hemsill is an accurate pass hurler. Mr. and Mrs. P. L.
