Aggies Appear Lo Be Hot •Choice for Sugar Bowl Classic DALLAS Texas — (If)— Texas A. and M. college annoimoed Tuesday its football team, currently ran'kec] the nation's No. 2 powerhouse, would not play in the Cotton Bowl postseason classic at Dallas if invited. Chairman Joe Utay of the board of directors' athletic committee warned thai Rice Institute and University of Texas are still to come on the schedule of an Aggie team that has shackled right straight foes. "We are crossing no bridges before we come to them." Utay said. "•However, our position with regard to the Dallas Cotton Bowl game is well known. We uleadlaslly have refused to pledge our support to this undertakini" under il.s present .setup and will continue to do so. regardless of fulure events." F. M. Law of Houston, former president (/f the National Bankers Association and chairman of the A. and M. hoard of directors, seconded Utiiy's motion before the board. The Dallas post-season game, now three years old, wa.s originated and .sponsored l.,v J. Curtis banford, oil man-proniolei 1 . "We feel." s;,id Utay. "we are perfectly capable to stage our own postseason games without the assistance or needless expense of outside-lhe- conference promotion." Utay explained the board did not mean that it would attempt promotion of its own post-season game, but merely wanted it understood it would leal with no outsiders in possible putt-season game transactions. "If the Southwest Conferum.'e .sponsored a name. 1 am certain in Texas. We are definitely not excluding possible conference handling of a game --just the Cotton Bowl as il now exists." Reports, some from informed sources, have indicated the Aggie.s are a rod-hot choice for New Orleans' Sugar Cowl game, he idea there is to get the AfTgies and Tulane together if Loth yet through the closing weeks without too many scars. The Amjies have remained silent on all post-season matters unlli the board's statement, but some officials have expressed in a sort, of "who wouldn't like it" ton that invitations to the Rose or Sugar bowl would SERIAL SfOfcY Wednesday "Espionage Agent" THURSDAY - FRIDAY ttarrtrg Barbara Adolpht .

Deliberately he folded the paper, Apmle. then rising quickly from his chair, lik<>d (Continued from Page One) he hurried across the study, pulled a bookcase away from the wall and knelt beside a small safe. He mo- Iwlstecl the knob and in ment the door swung open, from the desk lamp glistened on the metal. Bentnorne paused, undecided. "First place Helen and Joey Would look," he said, half aloud. He stepped to pulled back the the window, drawn shade. Henthorne the Parker admitted he pnper better Ram drummed Unceasingly against the panes. A fresh, cool draft swept into the room as ha raised the sash ti few inches. A flash of lightning revealed the dark-coated figure of a policeman, huddled against the gnte. There was another in the garage, a third at the rear driveway, Benthorne knew. Thunder shook the house, rattled the window. The ticking of the clock above the fireplace echoed throughout the ensuing silence. Only a few minutes more, Ben- thorne thought. . There was yet one chance— only one— but he would take it. Quickly he returned to the desk, turned the lamp shade so that the light fell more upon the closed door. He crumpled the paper in his hand, tossed it into the wastebasket. He opened a desk drawer, took out a revolver. The safety clicked. He replaced it, carefully leaving the drawer open. Pulling his chair back from the circle of light, yet still within reach of the gun in the drawer, Arnold Benthorne sat down, waited for his murderer. * * * TJE could see the headlines— "BLOODY BENTHORNE MURDERED." That would be old Parker's sheet. They hated him, too. Fought his methods, tried to trap him. But never quite succeeded. "BENTHORNE, FINANCIER, POUND DEAD." Good old conservative Carter Smith. Wishy- washy. Afraid to call a spade a than the Smith sheet, That gang over at Parker's had courage. That's what it tnkes. That's what it look to make Arnold Benthorne.- He saw u lad of 10, thin, clothed in castofTs, crying in a doorway. He saw an older boy, heavier, stronger, taunting (he weeping lad. Funny that he should remember now. The older boy, Billy Watson, had challenged his right to sell papers- on that corner. Arnold— his name was not Benthorne then —had refused to fight, had run away in terror. _Another picture came to mind. Billy's face, disappearing beneath the waters of the river. Arnold had run screaming to the nearest policeman; men had dived into the river for Billy's body. The crowd praised Arnold—he hud done all ho could. Even Billy's mother was nice to him, after her hysterical crying had .stopped. They never found Billy's body. It was just as well. Someone might have wondered about those bruised knuckles—bruised as Arnold pounded Billy's fingers as he (.•lung to the dock. The papers would not tell that .-•lory tomorrow. * * * ^JO—there would be columns about Arnold Benthorne's phenomenal rise in the business world. They would tell how dying stocks revived under his magicnl touch, how ho pyramided his wealth into millions. There would be the story of his vast factories, his thousands of; employes. His charities would be mentioned, and the scholarships his wealth had made possible. There would be pictures, too, of Benthorne — dark-haired, flftyish, his cold, piercing eyes staring out from the lean hardness of his face. He hoped they would use that pic- lure he had had made last month —the one the photographer said made him look like a dictator. Helen's picture would be back in the papers again, too. The society editors would see that his marriage to Helen Alston, daughter ol one of America's greatest motor truck manufacturers, would not be forgotten. The gossip columnists had enjoyed a field day guessing the real facts behind the Alston-Benlhorne wedding—wondering how one of society's favorite debutantes could marry a man almost ns old ns her father. Only one reporter—and Benthorne recalled grimly that he hod soon lost his job—had hit the real reason. He had hinted that Benlhorne had threatened to wreck Alston Motors and that old man Alston thought more of his trucks than ot his daughter. There was one mystery about Benthorne that no newspaperman, would ever solve. For years they had been speculating as to where Arnold Benthorne got his Slake. No one knew him when he first came to New York, armed with $30.000 and the determination to turn it into a million. No one knew—nor would ever know—the story of "Big Red." They had met in Alaska. "Big Red" had come in with the Kloji- clike rush, hunted his strike for 20 years. And he had found it— far inland, among unmapped mountains, "Big Red" had found >iis gold. Benthorne—his name had been Benson then—learned of the mine when "Big Red" filed his claim. He had followed "Big Red" northward. He remembered "Big Red's" piteous cries as he left him, blind and dying in that forgotten valley. He had taken "Big Red's" name —John Douglas—as well as his claim title and ore samples, until ho had sold out to a mining company. He had listed "Big Red" as one of the five—and "Big Red : ' was dead. He'd scratch off the name. No use blaming a murder on a dead man. Queer that he had imagined, even for an instant, that "Big Red" was alive. He reached for the wastebasket. * * * "T^ON'T move, Benthorne!" The soft voice, almost a whisper, came from the half- opened door. "YOU!" Eenthorne gasped. The muzzle of a revolver shone in the light. The round, black hole held Benthorne's hypnotized = „— hands up. Keep away from the desk. You've been expecting me?" Benthorne did not answer. His head was still above the level of the desk. If he could fall forward, suddenly, he might beat the shot, reach his own gun. One more second— Flame spouted from that black circle as Arnold Benthorne took; his last chance.

Arkansas A. and M: is situated at Monticello, 55 miles from Pine Bluff in the southeast corner of Arkansas, 30 miles from the Louisiana border. Cotton and lumber are the principal products of those rolling hills. Residents of Monticello decided to bring in some boys four years ago, and the school was stuck with $6000 worth of expenses in one way and another when the town sports failed to fulfill promises to the boys. So Ferguson took over with the understanding that he would be paid nothing for coaching and there there would be nothing more in the game for boys than fun. "Truthfully," says Coach Ferguson, "I never know what they're going to do. They make up their own plays in the huddle much of the time." Coach Ferguson believes his material will improve with this slogan: "Come to Arkansas A. and M. and see the world in a bus." oo greeted with a whoop and a holler if the Aggies remain unbeaten. Aggies' Refusal to Play in Cotton Bowl Caused Elation NEW ORLEANS —l/Pl— Refusal of Texas A and M to consider playing in the Dallas Cotton Bowl even if invited caused unexpressed elation Tuesday night among persons connected with New Orleans Sugar Bowl. Although officials of the New Orleans Mid-Winter Sports Association declined to be quoted, it is well known that they have been casting fond eyes toward College Station. It doesn't much matter who plays in the Sugar Bowl from a financial standpoint as the affair would be a sellout if Yankton and Bigbee were playing. The football-mad public here abouls always buys up the tickets before the teams are announced. Availability of the Aggies is welcome, however, as a matter of prestige. The Sugar Bowl people, and many others, believe they got the best bowl game in the country last year by taking Texas Christian right out of the Cotton Bowl and another chance to slap the Dallas rival would he somewhat relished. The Sugar Bowl fo r either Tennessee or the Aggies, with Tulane. North Carolina, Oklahoma and maybe Cornell also to piek from.

By 1IAURY GRAYSON NBA Service Sports Editor CLEVELAND—It cost Arkansas A. and M. 56000 foi; one semester of high- pressure football, so the school gave the game back to the boys and let them see the world in a bus. I caught the Arkansas A. and M. Boll Weevils the other afternoon in Cleveland, where they dropped off long enough to play John Carroll, and it was refreshing to see college kids playing for fun. . Arkansas A. and M. perhaps has the most unusual outfit in the land and it plays screwy football. "We haven't sufficient strength to make standard formations go," explains Stewart Alfred Ferguson, director of physical education and coach. "We've got to do something different." So Stewart Ferguson designed the j "swing gate" and other crazy ma-' neuvers and his club passes all over the place. Arkansas A, and M. hasn't won a game in two years, but it usually manages to score and plays entertaining football. It has a 38-year-old preacher, Hev. James Sewell, at tackle, and 17-year- old Winford Whalen at left halfback. The 145-pound quarterback, Jim Robinson, was a cheer leader in high school . . . didn't play football until this fall. He is a freshman. There is no freshman rule at Arkansas A. and M. The Boll Weevils have that to thank for the youngster Ferguson calls one of the finest passers in Arkansas, where they turn them out. There were 22 in rrie Arkansas A. and B. bus on the trip just completed and which took the party to Rolla, Mo., St. Louis, Springfield, 111., Chicago, Notre Dame, Ann Arbor, Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Louisville. The team has been in Philadelphia anrl in westerr) Texas this auttimn. Coach Ferguson makes good use of every man. Capt. Coy Brown editor of the school paper, is the press agent. The boys missed Rev. Sewell on the journey. "His Sunday night sermon delivered while we jog along in the bus is ical- ly something to hear," explains the coach. ''And the most unusual th'Ms; , about it is that Rev Sewell is the big- S.M.U. Plays Run Against Porkers | Coach Thomsen Stressing Blocking As He Drills On Ground Attack i FAYATEVILLE - Freshman players made Southern Methodist University pass plays click against the varsity squad Tuesday as the Univer- i sity of Arkansas Razorbacks worked on pass defense for their game with S. M. U. at Little Rock Friday. Although the freshman line could not hold the heavier varsity squad. MaxSallings, freshman quarterback from Walnut Ridge, passed the ball to team mates many times in the drill. The pass plays were those scouts had brought back from the S. M. U.- Texas A. and M. game last weekend. Most of the Porker aerial defense plays are being styled to stop passes trom Johnny Clements, S. M. U. halfback. , Coach Fred C. Thomsen drilled the Porkers on many ground plays during the practice. Many times the Razorback mentor had to explain blocking assignments to linemen who had been running the plays all season. Thomsen said that he wasn't satisfied with backfield blocking and indicated that there might be some shifting of positions before the game. Quarterback Ralph •Atwood, 165- pound .senior, broke into the 'clear on several ground plays, but the fresh man secondary stopped him after 10 or 15-yard gains. Halfback Estes McDoniel showed speed in both blocking and carrying the ball around end. Thomsen used two varsity backfields The first was composed of Ray Cole, Kay Eakin, McDoniel and Atwood, Joe Campbell, Walter Hamberg, A. E. Mitchell and Gloyd Lyon were in the other backfield. The 60-piece Razorback band and fans will leave Friday morning on a special train. CAUGHT COLD?
