Thirty-five boys are expected to report for the first practice session September 1. When the boys arrive they will be assigned a dormitory room, and they will register, and have individual pictures made tor the college yearbook. Tuesday will be their first workout. Coach Pickett said that he will abandon the straight T which has been run at the Wharton County Junior College for the past several years, and wiU run a pro-type offense this year. This offense features a wide-open attack with spread ends and wide-set flankers. Filo Jimenez of Newgulf Is slated to be the Number 1 pitcher for the Pioneers, and the big problem will be to have capable receivers for the offensive- minded Pioneers. Floyd Mills of Alvin Is being counted on heavily to play split-end for the Pioneers and Bobby Janciking, returning letterman halfback, will be in the role of the flanker-back. Coach Pickett wfll have only ten days to get his boys In shape for the first game of the season, which will be in Wharton September 12 against Texarkana Junior College. How- Returning lettermen are Steve Shaver of Houston, tackle; Jim Lassman of Victoria, guard; Harold McLeod of Needville, center; J. G.
