Sweeny Bulldogs hosf Jesuit in search for No. 2 • By BRIAN DODSON SWEENY - "It's going to Ml * hard fought gtme," was one of Sweeny head coach JAke Tfultt's statements concerning Friday night's game with Houston's Jesuit. Htrd fought Is just about the way It Is going to be, too. The Jesuit Crusaders are big, tough, and experienced, and also picked eighth In AAA In this part of Texas. Their line averages e'2 1 ' and 194 Ibs., and their backfleld Is only fair sized, but very exper- SWEENY BACK Melvtn Woodard evades a host of Pearland Oilers for a considerable gain around end In Friday night's convincing 33-14 victory. Woodard took the hand- off from Sweeny's brilliant young sophomore quarterback, Jodi Duke (5). Duke completed four touchdown passes during his first night as the Bulldog quarterback. lenced. Jesuit lost Its opener last Friday night to Silsbee, AAA quarter-finalist in '67, by a score of 42-20. Jesuit was playing without five of their regular starters, who were out with the flu. The Crusaders still made Silsbee beat them, they did not just give them the game. Trultt said that Jesuit will be the biggest, fastest opponent that the Bulldogs have seen so far. He said that they are not the fastest that Sweeny will see In future play, just the fastest so far. Trultt also said that they (Jesuit) have a quarterback that does everything but sells programs, and he does It well. Truttt said that they have an effective passing attack to combine with a ground game that can be run either up the middle or around either end. He stated that both their defensive backfleld and line are quite formidable. On commenting on the Pearland game, Trultt said that things ran the way he wanted them to. He said that the Bulldogs had gone into the game with pass on their minds, and pass they did. Trultt commented that seven Interceptions by his Bulldogs were not on his game plan, but since they were there he will take anything given to him. Trultt pointed out some boys VoKswogen leaps into the present With a fully automatic transmission. If you bet a friend we never would, we almostdidn't. 10 years ago the decision was made. To design a fully automatic transmission. The kind you put in drive and forget. Our aim was to make things easy, but for us changes aren't easy to make. Especially in this case. There were certain things we just didn't want to lose. Like horsepower, and our reputation for being economical. What we've ended up with is a 3-speed automatic transmission that's pure Volkswagen—designed from scratch to get the most out of the VW with the least expenditure of effort. It has the fewest moving parts. It's the lightest per horsepower output. And it's incredibly sensitive. (A model airplane engine is powerful enough to turn it.) So come see how far Volkswagen has come. The Squareback and Fastback. Both have disk brakes, an electronically con- trolled fuel injection system, and now, a fullyautomatic transmission. If you're interested, it's available as an option on our '69 models. If you're not interested, we sure went to a lot of trouble for nothing.

UT hopes fo refurn fo ifs winning ways AUSTIN (AP) - Coach Darrell Royal of the Texas Longhorns has been busy this fall, handling football workouts on the field and football walkouts In his office. Nine players have told Koyal they were quitting, and only starting end Deryl Comer has changed his mind and rejoined the squad. Texas has been picked by- many to have the top team in the nation this fall. Rumors have taken up some time, too. One of the most discussed was of a woman calling to say she had heard that Steve Worster, the highly regarded sophomore fullback, had scheduled a news conference to say he was going to Oklahoma. That proved false. Those who have checked out for sure include three who most likely would have played this year, although they were in danger of being caught In the manpower shuffle. They were Pat Sheehan, the backup to halfbacks Ted Koy and Chris Gilbert; tackle Tommy Rohrer and end Tom Illgglns, also on the second team, but starters last year. "I can understand Tom and the others quitting," Royal said. "It was Corner's quitting that didn't make sense." "My mind just wasn't working correctly," said Comer, a 215-pounder who Is regarded by his teamrnales as one of the squad's best.

"We haven't reached the point either where we've run out of i'.oo.| athletes," said Royal, "We have some out there who will fight >ou."
