A. AND M.—KANSAS AGGIES IN RIFLE COM ETITION On last Wednesday afternoon, in spite of the threatening weather, a team of twelve men engaged in a rifle shooting competition with a team of the Kansas State Agricultural College. The A. and M. team shot on our local range, and the Kansas Aggies shot on their range, but up to the present, re ports have not been received from the Aggies. The scores of the high six men on each team counted, and are given be- for the A. and M. team. First column of figures for rapid fire, 200 yards; second for slow fire, 300 yards; third for slow fire 500 yards: Easley, C. M 47 49 44 140 Bell, J. E 47 48 42 139 Rutan, W. L 46 49 43 138 JDunning, W. R.. . . 45 49 42 136 Scott, W. R 44 46 43 133 Rack, E. C 40 48 41 129 Team grand total . .815 Rack and Clayton tied for sixth place on the team, but the decision was given to Rack, as the rules give the tie to the man making the highest aggre gate score on the longest range. This score was very good for the team, considering the weather condi tions, and beat last year’s team by 72 points, falling below the United States Intercollegiate ecod of last year by only 12 points. Other men shooting, but who failed to place, were Clayton, Allen, Washam, Clarkson, Zedler, and Faber. Consid erable interest has been taken in tar get practice this year, and with the aid of the indoor range, which will no doubt be installed this summer, great things are expected of the college team next year.
