University student who had en
listed in the army air corps, re

Out to Win
Other than these two casual
ties, the rest of the team is in
top shape and according to the
entire squad, they are going to
beat the Aggies Saturday.
The high light of the meet
will be the private feud be
tween Don Wilson and Oregon
State’s Bob Fischer in the mile
event. The two sophomores
are old high school rivals and
both are out for blood. They
ran against each other last
year as freshmen, too.
Some master minds have fig
ured the Beavers over the Web
foots by several points, but fig
ures from the local camp are
definitely to the contrary. Hay
ward has agreed that if every
one does his best, Oregon will
come out on top.
