COLLEGE STATION, Tex., Sept, 12, (AP) -Texas A. and M. has shifted its win-conscious football team into high gear and Is sitting back to see the results of building plans made during the vfctorytass days of 1948 and 1949. Combining one of the most explosive running units In college football with an above-average line, the Aggies might easily become B top challenger for conference honors, that is. If the passing attack develops. Percentage wise. A. and M. had one of the best passing attacks in :he league last season, but the Cadet quarterbacks failed lo use aerials often enough. Against 11 opponents, A. and M. threw 152 passes and completed T4 lor 105fl yards, while opponents went lo the air 271 times and connected nn 127 for 1713 yards. A. and M. must develop all four phases of its passing attack to have potent offense—throwing, catch- Ing, blocking lor the passer and offering a threat as a nm or pass herein lies Ihe key to Coach Ray George's problems. If anything, the Cadets are suffer ing from leltcrmen and senior- UK Twenty-six players have earned numerals, and half this number holds two varsity letters. In all. 20 seniors, part of the tale tiled freshman team of ItMB, are out for their last year. The Agcrles have a veteran back- having first choice by virtue of being a starter for the past, two years. Contesting Garriemal are senior letter men Del mar Sikes, Junior squadman Ray Graves and Roy Dollar, a transfer from Del Mar Juninr College. Graves has shown great improvement In his ball handling and passing and could possibly be the No. 1 man. Lack of conference experience may postpone Dollar's debut one more year. Lack of material is forcing end coach Hank Goldberg and line coach Paul McMurtry to think in terms nf a semi-platoon system. A, and M. has probably the best offensive center in the southwest in Hugh Meyer, two-year letterman. A. and M. has very dependable linebackers in Meyer and Jamt's Fowler, a defensive specialist. The guards slots were most hit by graduation and the loss of co-captains Max Grciner and Carl Mol- er, and he will probably team with a talented Junior who played on defense last year—Jack Little. This 220-pound giant has the makings of one of the best tackles in the conference. A. and M. appears weakest at the offensive end positions. Coach Fold- b«rE has adequate defensive ends In Clinton Gwin, Walter Hill and Charles Saxe, but, he has no standout offensive terminal men Charles Hodpe and Walter Hill will probn firld, offensively and defensively, j berg u hejn? , M kepnly However.

You see—a man isn't simply btryme a motor car when he gets his first Cadillac. He is marking a milestone in his life. Kor years, he has been saying to himself that, some day, he would step up to a Cadillac. All this time, he has seen it as something he wanted to to do for his family... anrl as a sort of personal reward for the etTort and planning that have gone into his own work. And when you waich him slide over behind the wheel —well, it's a thrill just to he there. He's a proud and happy man as he turns the key in the ignition switch— and hears the deep-throated answer of the powerful engine. » * » If you are one who has been looking forward to a Cadillac—we think you would be well advised to come in and place your order now. There's a little delay these days before a Cadillac can be delivered—and obviously, the sooner you placs your order, the sooner you'll get your car. And when the great day comes, you'll know at ones that it was well worth waiting for—because all the things you've heard about a Cadillac are doubly true. It isn't just a motor car.
