Anderson expects to hare an ex
ceptionally fast relay team and
may win that as well as several
weight events, some of the middle
distance races and possibly the
pole vault. About the rest, little
can be predicted.

candidate for the 880 yard run.

The Salem high team Is well
supplied with weight men. Homer
Smith, Fred Smith and John Gott

and shot, and Fred Smith will
help Blaco uphold local honors in
the javelin throw.
Perrlne and West are capable
raulters. Kenneth Cannoy is a
promising candidate for both
