All but a handfull of the year- lings are unknown, but it is from just such material that the state and conference championship teams of A. & M. have been built. The policy of Aggie athletic of- ficials is to give every candidate all the opportunity he wants; and it was that policy which produc- ed such men as Ross Hall, Merle Collins, Melvin Riggs, and others among last year's graduating lettermen.

'lha lilting song of the bird and the crisp whistle of the man exchanged daily greetings across the straggling apace that separated them. This was one of the first days of spring to capture glorious geniality from the gently warm sun and faintly stirring airnature's farewell to a dragging, hitter winter.

Why not for him, too? The chance to secure tools came oon and Number 991 became a differ- ent man. He stepped out of the prison rut of resignation into the province of love of life. A thousand sleepless nlght had taught him where the night gUard of his cell-block would be at any given moment.

The child was dragging a chair un- der the canary's cage again. Today! The chlld climbed on the chair; fussed with the cage door, and opened It.

The llttle pal was free to travel the far fields--travel with him--to Indulge fantasy. Nnmber 991 remained long at the window pl'mnlng his own ecape for that very night. He dreamed as he sniffed the blossom-see,ted air hun- grlly.

They caught a glimpse of a lifeless little blab of yellow from which the feathers drooped awry. Number 991 turned away from his nearly severed bars, despair in the deep lines of his sagging face.
