    Jimmy Miller Crowned New Intramural Golf Champion

    Bill Halcomb Defeated In Finals Sat. Championship Undecided Up To Last

    Saturday morning- after a nip and tuck match all the way, a new Intramural Golf Champion was determined. He is Jimmy Miller, 1st Company Sophomore.

    The semifinals which were held' earlier saw Miller defeat Kyle Drake, 8th Co. senior by a terrific score 9 and 8. Miller shot fine golf all the way but Drake was defin­ itely off his game.

    In the final match Saturday morning Miller met Bill Halcomb of B Co. downing him with a one- up margin. The match was a close one all the way with neither of the boys playing up to par. Go­ ing onto 16 with 3 down and only 3 remaining holes, Halcomb open­ ed a terrific drive to take 16 and 17. This put him 1 down with only 18 left to play and Halcomb fell short by one hole. Miller’s last ap­ proach on 18 proved to be super­ ior only after Halcomb’s ball was stymied behind a tree to the right of the green. Miller wound up winner with a one-up margin. The whole match was a thriller and was undecided up to the last stroke.

    On the back 9 Halcomb’s woods were terrific while Miller’s chip shots were devestating. Miller miss­ ed several short putts for wins in the final match on nos. 5, 7, 11.

    An intramural medal will be given filler for his new champion­ ship.

    Contribute to the Reveille Fund Now

    The General Reveille Fund is still on its march, but the Corps is urged to cooperate still more than it has. Rev. is practically a General, but if those Aggies of the last few years have any affection for her, they will pitch in so that a picture can be paint­ ed. If enough of these “Aggies” do contribute, this picture can be painted within a few days and a collar can be made to go in the trophy case of the rotunda of the Academic building. Inci­ dentally, the Corps is looking for someone to paint Rev’s picture. An Aggie-ex who can paint is preferred, but if one can’t be found, any other painter of known skill will be acceptable.

    Corps Urged to Watch Team and Keep Spirit

    By Archie Broodo “Help the campus spirit,” was

    Coch Norton’s reply to a Batt re­ porter who asked him how the corps could help the team. All the coach had to- say was, “Talk it up on the campus and get boys to watch football practice.” Well army, you know now what is ask­ ed of you. It is up to all real Ag­ gies to get back the spirit that was so well demonstrated last year when with two minutes left in the game the Aggies were penalized twice for yelling too loud and the ball was in our territory and we were behind in score. That was an example we may well follow. As Chuck Chalmers told us last year, the Aggies have been known to steal the glory of winning from the other team by their demonstration of spirit during the game. Army, we can do that this year. Let the whole army play for T. U. or the whole navy for Rice and the fight­ ing Texas Aggies will still be in the game all the way fighting to win just as their Aggie brothers are leading a winning game against all comers in the theaters of war. The Fighting Texas Ag­

    gies INCLUDES the twelfth man, army and the twelfth man consists of every man in the school bar none. The upperclassmen need to get the spirit and if there were old measures back the sophs would gladly get the spirit over to the freshmen. Being new on the campus the freshmen had an excuse, but now that it is known what is ex­ pected of everyone no one has an excuse to shirk on his duties. Let’s all spend our afternoons down at Kyle Field helping the team. If they can go every day, we can go some of the time. The idea of loudly talking things up on the campus has been started on the campus by some freshmen who probably had relatives at A. & M. No one is making these men do what they are doing and the idea should spread. These freshmen deserve some credit for finding out about one good Aggie custom and following it through. Let’s revive the spirit that is synonymous with the term Aggie and watch the team get hot enough to win the conference and surprise every­ body. It’s in your hands now, Army. What is your answer.

    The sensational French violinist Zino Francescatti, who will play here on March 7, 1944 at Guion Hall under the auspices of Town Hall, yas born in Marseilles on August 9, 1905. Both his parents were musicians. His father was a pupil of Sivori, the only direct pupil of Paganini for whom the fabrflous virtuoso composed con­ siderable music. Through him young Zino received the Paganini tradition intact. But, except for the training from Francescatti were in both violin and piano, the child grew up self-taught in music.

    At five he made his first public appearance; at ten scored a mu­ sical triumph in the Beethoven Concerto, and at twenty establish­ ed himself among the few really great violinists through the suc­ cess of his formal debut with the Orchestra of the Concerts de Con­ servatoire at the Paris Opera. His “second debut” was the begin­ ning of a sensational carrer in En- rope, followed by similar suc­ cesses in South America.

    In the fall of 1939 Francescatti came to the United States for the first time, made his debut with the New York Philharmonic-Sym­ phony Orchestra. Since then he has toured this country and Can­ ada every season and has played repeatedly with the major orches­ tras of the continent. He is accep­ ted by the American public as one of the great concert artists of the world today.
