Tech, An Fnkown Quality
Tech the' school that won the
rity championships last year, has
been hit hard by the loss of two
white stas; Dick Beal and Divid
Wall, but the number of Negroes
reporting to Dutch White should
help him. No end to such hard
workers as Chester Hodges and
Gilbert, All-City, have been proven
to be an asset to any team. The
Tech .Squad numbers over one
hundred members but is still a
question mark.

Three young are pioneering at

colored trackmen previous to now.
These three ars Preston “Jabber
