But X t 8 t 4&-£S-&&r' In every niect to date at least . one of the two has made 13’ and on •!i r two occasions Simpson has gone if - i over that mark by jumping 18’ 6” and 13’ 4” while: Graves made 13’ In both pf the same instances! j Simpsons Height Exception SimpWi’s 13’ 6” ;is exception ally goo*-in this area, and this is the first year since 1941 that a Southwest Conference pole vaulter has jumped better than 1?*. With a little improvement Simpson will be making that 14’ thatr he has so narrowly ntissed in two meets and the Southwest will again be among the nation’s best in. the pole vault. , Graves with two years of eligi bilify remaining can reach that |\ 14-foot mark and with a little more experience should jump 13’ 6” this yeaf. i r : The third member of the pole yault team is Elmo Wade wpo has been consista: ally bright with soph Davis and Graves in that event Davis, the «’ 8" star basketball center, is loaded with natural tal- eht and needs only work on form and coordination before he'll be jumping Kis own height. His only defeat this year cotpe in the Rice dual meet when Vera McGrew, conference champion, leaped 6’ 0’’ to Buddy’s 6’ 4”. Mc f Grew and Davis tied at the Bor der Olympics at 6’ 4Vi” in one of the meet’s big surprises.

Held-to' a-single point through the first 20 minutes, NC State’s Sam Ranzi’no found himself after intermission and sparked a late rally by the Southern Conference champions. He wound up with 21 lick 1 ,_.jn consistant at 12’. In years, this would be'enough to win a lot of meets, but with th^ stiff competition this year, it Will be 'hard -to place at. that Height. Should he reach, 12’ 6”, and it’s highly likely, Wade can score some valuable points forj A&M before the season is over.

The old record Of 1,206 en trants from 120 schools was estab lished in 1938. Brajrging Texans had little to brag about after last year’s relays. In the university class, the state produced only one winner and two runners-up in. the seven relay events. Tne lone winner was Texas A&M in the mile relay. It should.be a different story for the I/Orie Star State this year. Ribe will be favored in the mile this year with A&M a strong con tender.
