Friday, April 9, 1954 THE BATTALION w^ : Page 3 In Tri-Meet Here Rice To Be Key In Saturday Meet Texas and A&M will have an other track and field battle Satur day on Kyle field and though the Longhorns are favored, the Rice Owls will be the key to the tri angular meet. Field events get underway at 2:30 p.m. Saturday with the first race — the 440-yard relay — at 3 p.m. Admission is free. Tevas has dominated the Ag gies in the Border Olympics and Texas Relays and is favored to dethi-one A&M this season as Southwest conference champs. But in the three-way meet the point spread is much closer than in the big relay carnivals. The big question Saturday is: How much will Rice contribute ? In a recent three-way meet at Houston between A&M, Texas and the Cougars, the UH squad helped the Longhorns eight points—the amount Texas defeated A&M. In that meet, the Cougars won the javelin and mile relay and took second in the shot put and discus while winning third in the 100 and second in the 220-yard dash. Rice’s key men Saturday are expected to be Stephen James, pole vaulter who is undefeated in con ference competition and Harold Griffen, the Owls’ groat 440-yard star. Jack Robinson of the Dodgers has hit above .300 his last five seasons.

The foursome of Dean Smith, Alvin Frieden, Jerry Prewit and Charley Thomas ran the fast est 440-yard relay in history around two turns at the Texas Re lays and was just three-tenths of a second off the world record of :40.5. A&M will be strongest in the shot put and discus where Bobby Gross and Tom Bonorden rule the roost, and in the mile and two-mile races with Jim Blaine, Dale De- Rouen and Verlon Westmoreland carrying the baton. In the jave lin, A&M has Pete Mayeaux, SWC champ. Col. Frank G. Anderson, veteran Aggie coach, figures the mile re lay will be the deciding factor Saturday. The Longhorns, with the strong Dick Forrester anchoring, have de feated the Aggies three times this year but the spread has been thin. A&M’s mile relay crew will be Frank Norris, Carol Libby, Gerald Stull and either Terry Vetters or Wallace Kleb. LEADING HITTER—Les Byrd, Aggie first baseman, is sporting a .313 batting average. Playing in 10 games, Byrd has made 10 hits in 32 times at bat. He has six runs batted in to his credit to tie for the team lead in that category with right fielder Behn Hubbard.
