The Fish have had a very, sue-
cessfui season having outpointed
both the. Rice .Slimes and] the
Tarleton State 1’lowboys by very
large margins. They also gained
several places in the Texas Relays
^gainst stiff competition.
Today’s meet should be. an easy
victory for the Cadets if statistics
prove anything. The Rice fresh
men whaliloped the Shorthorijis in
a dual meet after the Aggie f Fish
had beaten the Rice-men fey about
-30 ■ points. This would seejn to
show that it should be easy fojr the
Aggies to prove superior today.
