Page 4 THE BATTALION Friday, November 18, 1955 Monday At Austin i— Tracksters For SWC Shoot Crown A&M’s undefeated cross country team looks toward Austin Monday and its battle with Texas, SMU and Arkansas for the Southwest Conference crown. Th£ Aggies have swept through five meets so far this season, downing each of their SWC opponents at least once. Rice, TCU and Baylor do not send full teams to the confer ence meet, but may send a 4 runner or two each. A year ago the A&M har riers were at this same stage of the game, undefeated in all pre-conference meets, but Texas edged the Aggies by two points as Verlon Westmoreland, who hadn’t placed below second all year, be came ill and finished tenth. “We ai'e as good this year as last,” said head track coach Frank Andei'son, “and barring injuries or sickness, should win.” Team Captain Bill Cocke, senior letterman from Lake Charles, Loui siana, has paced A&M as he fin ished first in every meet but one— that against Arkansas, the only team to push the Aggies, where he placed second. In the season opener A&M scored a one-sided victory over Oklahoma and Texas, 28-44-48, with Cocke and Bob Boles taking the first two places. One week later Cocke again led his mates past the University of thrifty TIFFAfiYS are handsome, too Tiffany Worsteds represent one of the greatest value suits on the market today because these crisp and-sturdy fabrics are noted for their ability to stand up under the pressure of your hardest wear.

Main Bryan Texas as A&M captured an easy verdict. Cocke ran second for the only time against Arkansas in Fayette ville, but the Aggies won their closest margin, 24-31, on the Razor- back hills. Boles took a close third behind Cocke with Ed Blake, Carl Wilmsen and Don Carver finishing fifth, sixth and seventh. “Arkansas has a good team,” said Coach Anderson. “Our score against them shows better than the actual race because our boys just beat theirs by a matter of feet.” Against the SMU harriers the Aggies swept the first five places for the minimum 15 points. Cocke and Boles again finished one-two with Wilmsen, Blake and Carver behind them. Last week Cocke and Boles tied for first in Austin as A&M downed the Texas Longhorns, 17-42. Fi- dell Rul, a junior letterman who had been injured, captured fifth followed by Wilmsen and Blake, sixth and seventh. “We’ve done better up to this time than we ever have,” said coach Anderson. “We’ve *von by larger margins than any other year, but, then, the SWC is weaker than ever before, too.” A&M will be in for a strong fight from Arkansas and Texas, with the home ground favoring the Long horns. SMU is not in contention for the title, but one or two of their runners could take enough points to keep the Aggies out. “Texas will give us a good battle and has improved tremendously. Much more than we have,” said Anderson. BILL COCKE has led the Aggie cross country team through an undefeated season so far. The senior distance man is captain of the team, and has placed first in all but one meet this year.
