Having won irom fetaie University at College fetation in 1919, and-then dropped dropped the game to tne Lo*.guoins m Ausun m 19.0 the Aggies elected elected to lay claim to the 1921 game at College Station. Tnat was their declaration immediately loiiowmg the Austin game last year. Then and there they wined to win m 1921 aud without contracting contracting the germ of comidence that will has persisted throughout throughout this season. Placing their support behind a team only a nucleus of “T” men and rilled out with youngsters of unknown ability the corps has followed the team to this great impending game successtully and to their liking They are determined that what the team lacks in ordinary technical skill or physical strength to defeat* the Longhorns w*iil be supplied in superficial fashion through the medium of school spirit. Those who have watched a losing game suddenly turn to victory in its last stages for the Aggies as tear seemea to stir Aggie rooting stand to fervid activity activity will give credit to this element. And those w ho believe that will, a sacrificial spirit and an indomitable determination aie some of th e greatest weapons to be employed in any kind of a contest will not put too much reliance in what the football dope iUis shown so far. Probably the keenest rivalry is engendered betw een the two Texas institutions on the occasion of this annual football classic of any other contest in the United ¡States. It is in the South w hat the annual T ale-Princeton game is in the East Dope has been upset too often where psychology has an important ! bearing on skill to predict the result of the Turkey day game oetw’een the Farmers and the Longhorns. Every man on the team is in shape for practice this week and no doubt will < e put to rhe limit of iheir full ability, in the few* remaining d«ys before the big game. Everything else is off their mi ml, ju every side they see nothing but preparations for the game, they hear nothing else and thus it is a perfectly literal translation to sa v that bey £ re training 100 per cent.
