“The Animal Industries building; it’s old.” Katelyn Nix, junior psychology major

I’m fairly certain Roy haunts the main building and not the annex anyway — he takes the elevator. Darrin Moore, A&M research associate for ecosystem science and management

“The creepiest place on campus is Academic Plaza with all of these old, hauntedlooking oak trees.” Jesse Tune, G-7 Grad level anthropology

“Probably the Quad at night because there is a lot of weird people wandering around.” Kaitlyn Thibodeaux, freshman Blinn Team

“For me I guess it’s close to the water fountain between Blocker and the library. It’s like there isn’t a lot of light over there.” Sam Shute, freshman environmental geoscience major

“When you walk from Hart to the SCC between Heldenfelds, there’s a shortcut there and it’s pretty creepy.” Kara Wong, sophomore sociology major

“I think campus in general at night is creepy.”

Natalee Blanchat and Joe Terrell The Battalion Texas A&M is a university built upon history. Echoes of the past resonate within Rudder Tower, Military Walk, the Memorial Student Center and throughout the very soul of Aggieland’s spirit and traditions. But behind one building on campus lurks a darker legacy; one built upon blood, misfortune and terrifying encounters with the unknown. Sitting in the shadow of the Oceanography and Meteorology building, the Animal Industries building is a testament to the pervasive power of a well-documented ghost story.

Depending on the version that is told, legend holds that decades ago, a faculty member accidentally cut himself in the basement late at night and died before he could make it out of the building. However, unlike many urban legends, this macabre rumor about the Animal Industries building runs red with more than just a vein of truth. Within the confines of the Cushing Memorial Archives lies a file documenting the sordid history and paranormal events that have come to define the building. The file states that construction on the Animal Industries building began in 1929, costing the University $225,000 — nearly $3 million in today’s currency. The build-

ing opened its doors in 1931. Built to accommodate the animal science department, the basement floor of the building’s annex housed the animal meat laboratory underneath the main lecture hall. Enter Roy Simms. According to a resolution passed in his memory by the Texas A&M Board of Directors in 1959, Simms joined the staff as a worker for a dining hall in 1938. He served in this position until joining the Navy in 1944. After the war, Simms returned to A&M and worked at the University’s stock farm. In 1948, Simms was promoted to meat locker foreman, the position he held

exas A&M entered the season with the looks of a title contender and a team motto no fan can resist: Are you ready? After Coach Sherman allowed the team to blow its third double-digit lead Saturday — and its chances of a Big 12 Conference title — I have another slogan that is more fitting: It’s time.

It’s past time to win and keep conference title hopes alive. There’s no more time to change schemes because there are only a few games left to play. It’s time to reflect on what went wrong in the three colossal collapses and what has plagued the Sherman era in Aggieland.

Play calling: All three games started with steady doses of power football on both sides of the ball, but one of the side effects was drowsiness. Against Oklahoma State, Sherman stuck to character and relied on the ground game to grab the early lead and set the tone for the rest of the game. In the second half he went to the air against the best secondary in the conference, making for a stomachchurning collapse. Things seemed to be fixed when Sherman unleashed junior running back Christine Michael on the Hogs in the first half, going for 128 yards and three scores on the ground. Michael was easily the most focused player on the field but Sherman elected to change the rotation in the backfield and throw in a mix of passes leading to another loss. The Missouri game started out as the slowest game of the season but senior quarterback Ryan Tannehill looked to have things under control by taking part of each of A&M’s four scores in the first half. This time Sherman kept the pass-to-rush ratio very even but had no answer for Missouri’s comeback.

media throughout the summer, the team has Tony Romo Syndrome. I’ll be the first to admit that I thought the Cowboys’ quarterback was a great player with a charming personality. Now it seems he just goes through the motions, just like the Aggies are doing. Sherman should have this under control by now. It’s not in his nature to pump up the team by showing emotion. That’s not his personality, but as legendary NFL coach Vince Lombardi

Record: Aggie fans have been waiting since 1939 for another national championship. The OSU loss put A&M out of position but the loss to Arkansas put them out of contention for a national title. Losing to Missouri erased hopes of even a conference title. Mediocrity is unacceptable to the Twelfth Man. Nearing the end of his fourth year, Sherman’s record is 24-22 overall, 14-15 in conference play and one frustrated sports editor at The Battalion. Dennis Franchione, Sherman’s predecessor, was 25-23 overall and 15-17 in conference play with less talent at the end of his fourth season. After a pedestrian 32-28 record (and an internal investigation), Franchione resigned and now coaches at Texas State. I think Sherman is too classy to have something on the side but his record places him under the microscope, nonetheless. Instead of trying to micromanage every aspect of the game, Sherman needs to stay in the flow of the game and start winning. Otherwise, A&M should start saving up for a $1.8 million buyout. Adrian O’Hanlon III is a senior agricultural communication and journalism major and sports editor at The Battalion.

The room where Simms had his fatal accident now acts as a fire escape from the annex of the Animal Industries building.

Animal Science Continued from page 1

until his death. On Nov. 14, 1959, Simms and two teaching assistants were working afterhours in the animal meat laboratory, conducting routine meat cutting. In order to cut across the meat more efficiently, Simms pulled himself up onto the cutting table. On his third slice, the knife cut through a weak portion of the meat and the blade slashed upward into his left thigh, severing the femoral artery in his groin and stopping short against the arch of his pelvic bone. While one of the teaching assistants ran for help, the other assistant attempted to carry Simms out of the laboratory. But it was too late. A slashed femoral artery can release up to 4 liters of blood in as many minutes. Simms lost consciousness and died from extreme blood loss on the inside stairwell of the Animal Industries annex. In 1983, the animal laboratory was relocated to West Campus. However,

decades of rumors and eyewitness accounts postulate the theory that Simm’s spirit still lingers within the halls of the Animal Industries building. “It’s a good story,” said Colt Brandenberger, senior wildlife and fisheries major. Located on the basement level is the men’s restroom, which serves as an entrance to the building’s fire escape. It is aligned with rusty steel hooks that were used to hang cattle by their front hooves before slaughtering. A drain sits in the middle of the whitewashed brick floor, an access point for blood to stream into. It is the same room Simms was working in before the tragic accident. Brandenberger, who has classes in the annex of the Animal Industries building, said he studies in the building’s open labs late at night. When he uses the restroom, he waits for Simms’ presence. “Sometimes I’ll go to down there late at night to use the restroom. I’ve called out to Roy several times to see if he was there,” Brandenberger said. “I’ve had yet to hear a reply.” Along with the fire escape, old refrig-

eration rooms that are protected by thick, stainless steel doors occupy the basement floor. Darrin Moore, a research associate for ecosystem science and management, said these rooms were utilized in the 1950s by the stock farm to keep the carcasses of butchered cattle fresh. Moore, who can be found in one of these rooms grinding and processing root samples, has worked in the building for five years and still waits to see the ghost of Roy Simms. “I’m fairly certain Roy haunts the main building and not the annex anyway — he takes the elevator,” Moore said. “The cleaning crew leaves it open for him during the night so he can ride it from floor to floor.” Janitorial workers have traditionally left the elevator at the bottom floor with doors open at night for Simms’ use. Otherwise, the Cushing file says Simms’ ghost wanders around the meat lab. According to faculty members, throughout the years several janitors have requested to be reassigned from the late shift at the Animal Industries building. Steve Potter, graduate student for water management and hydrological sciences, said that while he has had his share of goose bumps from the aged building, he, like Moore, has yet to witness a ghost. “There was a time when I was working in one of the labs of the annex around midnight and the maps that cover the walls started fluttering around out of nowhere,” Potter said. “It is an old building and those headed horse statutes attached to the ceiling seem to look down on you, following you with their eyes — it just has a dark and creepy feel to it.” For as long as students attend class within the Animal Industries building, there will always be whispers and sinking suspicions that they are sharing their classrooms with more than just classmates and professors.

LGBT members share experiences The Battalion Various community members and students from different religious backgrounds gathered to welcome and affirm the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in the Bryan-College Station area. Speakers from United Campus Ministry, Unitarian Universalists of the Brazos Valley, Congregation Beth Shalom, the Treehouse Campus Ministry and Friends Congregational Church gave their own affirmations and personal experiences with the LGBT community. Al Schaffer, representing the Congregation Beth Shalom, spoke about the relationship he has with his daughter, who is a lesbian, and how excited he was to be involved in her wedding in San Francisco. The main speaker was Rev. Stephen Sprinkle, the first openly gay scholar at the Brite Divinity School at Texas Christian Univer-

sity. Sprinkle addressed the issue of hate crimes against the LGBT community, covered in his most recent book, Unfinished Lives: Reviving the Memories of LGBTQ Hate Crimes Victims. Sprinkle talked about cases including the murders of Matthew Shepard and Billy Jack Gaither. Sprinkle also addressed ways to ensure the safety of the LGBT community in the future. “Even with federal protection from the government, the amount of violence against the LGBT community has increased,” Sprinkle said. “We need to change the language we use. When something like this happens, it is not a tragedy. It is a moral outrage.” David Elizondo, senior human resource development major, said he often participates in events supporting the LGBT community across campus.
