The Texas Christian University Horned
Frogs, who meet the Washington State Cougars
for the first time this afternoon, have a long
and distinguished football history.
The university, founded in 1873, first played
organized football during the season of 1896.
Each year since , with the exception of 1900, a
TCU team has taken the field. A member of
the rugged Southwest Conference since 1923,
the Christians have won 5 championships and
apeared in 7 Bowl games since 1929.
TCU Greats
Among TCU's most famous products were
Sammy Baugh, the great passer who is ranked
on Grantland Rice's all-time All-America
team; little David O'Brien who led the Purple
and White to the National championship in
1938; such All-Americans as Darrell Lester ,
Johnny Vaught who is now coach at Ole Miss ,
Ki Aldrich, Clyde Flowers and many others .
The ''Horned Frogs ' ' got their name a t the
turn of the century when the university 's practice field was noted to abound with the small,
horned reptiles which are indigenous to the
Southwest . The unique nickname stuck.
TCU Games
The TCU team of 1953, rated 5th in the Conference race at the start, has shown flashes of
real ability . They led mighty Michigan State,
19-7, going into the final quarter but lost, 19-26.
They were tied with Penn State, 21-21 , in the
late stages but finally lost 21-26. Of the four
early games they lost, only Texas A.&M. was
able to win by more than one touchdown.
After 19 years under the veteran L. R.
(Dutch) Meyer, the Frogs have a new coach
this year . He is Abe Martin, TCU star of 19281931 who was Meyer 's chief assistant for eight
seasons . Abe has had 22 years of coaching.
He installed the Split T this yea r and his
club is just now catching on to the tricky formation. Recently, the offense has been good
enough to win most games.
TCU Stars
Two senior veterans, Co-Capt. Malvin Fowler and Ray McKown, quarterback the Texans'
T. Both are good runners and passers. Ronald
Clinkscale at left half is the team 's fastest man.
He does the century in 9.6 in track. Sammy
Morrow, senior fullback, is one of the nation's
leading punters. Either Senior Ronald Fraley
or Junior Dave Finney will open at right half .
In the line, the Frogs have a standout in
Co-Capt. Morgan Williams. This tough 195pounder is a fine linebacker and good blocker.
Aerial Game
TCU is sure to come out passing in Spokane. The team has moved well on the airways
all year and it is certain they 'll open up at
the start. The result may be a wide-open, spectacular game.
On defense, the Texans have not been too
tough and the result may be a lot of yards
for the Cougars. In any event, plenty of action
is promised the fans.

Director, Athletic News Service, WSC
The Horned Frogs from Texas Christian
University and Washington State College meet
this afternoon at Memorial Stadium in the first
football game ever scheduled between the two
teams. Although the Texas team has played
many times against Pacific Coast Conference
teams including Southern California, California
and UCLA, it is the first invasion of the Northwest.
Noted for their colorful offensive maneuvers
under former Coach L. R. "Dutch" Meyer who
is now athletic director, the Horned Frogs have
continued that wizardry under Coach Othol
" Abe " Martin . The Southwest conference team
operates from a number of offensive formations including the split-T, winged-T, split-T
with flanker and sometimes goes into spread
formations.
Split-T
As a result of the intricate and tricky maneuvers which favor the use of the forward pass,
the Horned Frogs have scored at least once in
every game via the aerial route. A solid running game from the split-T has made the finest
teams in the nation look to their laurels this
season. Michigan State, Baylor, Penn State and
Texas A & M have all edged the TCU club but
in most instances by a touchdown or less .
Coach Martin has a solid nucleus of experienced lettermen with 20 award winners to man
the 11 starting positions. The Horned Frogs
have received unexpected help from a large
number of sophomores with four second-year
men starting today.
The Horned Frog backfield features quarterback Ray McKown, reputed to be the best
passed in the Southwest conference. He has
repeatedly hit receivers for long gains against
the best teams in the nation.
Veteran Backs
In addition to McKown, Coach Martin will
use Ronald Clinksdale, a :09.6 100-yard dash
man, and Marvin Fowler as veteran halfbacks.
The fullback post goes to powerful Don Sanford, a senior veteran with two years of experience.
Power in the TCU line will be supplied by
two veteran tackles-R. C. and Marshall Harris. Weighing over 200 pounds, the veteran
tackles have speed, power and experience. The
guard spots will be manned by Malcolm Wallace
and Morgan Williams, senior two-year lettermen.
Senior Swansong
The game this afternoon marks the last
Inland Empire appearance for senior lettermen: Capt. Bob Burkhart, Kellogg, Idaho;
Wayne Berry, halfback, LaGrande, Ore.; Terry
Campbell, halfback, Spokane; Phil Gardner,
guard, Seattle ; Red Golden, quarterback, Walla Walla; Bill Holmes, end, River Rouge, Mich. ;
Howard McCants, end, River Rouge, Mich. ;
Milt Schwenk, tackle, Sunnyside; Mel Thompson, guard, Pasco, Ernie Cecaci, Oakland, Cal.
With a record of three victories and three
defeats, Washington State will be gunning to
even the count against the Horned Frogs from
the Southwest conference. Expected to play
key roles in the game this afternoon are Capt.
Bob Burkhart, Wayne Berry, Chuck Beckel
and Jim Hagerty as WSC backfield men.
Anchoring the WSC line will be Milt Schwenk,
senior tackle ; Mel Thompson, senior guard,
and Vic Weitz, powerful junior tackle from
Walla Walla. An even dozen sophomores are
expected to gain valuable experience in the
line and another dozen will be playing in the
WSC backfield .
The game today is the second year in a row
that the Cougars have played a Southwest conference foe. The Cougars traveled to Waco,
Texas, to meet the Baylor Bears last season
and will travel to Texas to play the University
of Texas Longhorns next season in an early
contest.
