Bill Cardcjn, consistent Aggie

a place in the high hurdles.
In the Weight events A$gie
George Kadera will run up against
tho stiffest competition he has
ever had when he tangles with men
like Fortune Gordien of Minnesota
And Rollin PrAther of Kansas State.
Gordien is capable of getting
close to 180 feet in the Disculs
and $4 feet In the shot put while
Prather beat Kadera twice last
yeak ’in both events. If Khdera
places as high as third in either

The story, originating in the De
