The University pistol team took sixth place with a score of 1944 in the recent intercollegiate telegraphic pistol competition according to the scores received Saturday by the Department of Military Science. The Alabama Polytechnic Institute team, scoring 2113 points, won the competition and was presented the Challenge Cup by the National Rifle Association. Individual medals were also given to the members of the second and third ranking teams, which were those of the University of Missouri and Oregon Agricultural College, as well as to the winners. The highest individual score was 429, made by J. W. McIntosh of the Alabama team.

The Crimson team, with only two weeks of outdoor practice, less than any of the five higher ranking teams, and handicapped by the lack of an indoor pistol range, defeated seven other teams.

The individual scores of the winners were as follows: McIntosh 429, Nettles 427, Wood 425, Reaves 421, McKinnan 411.

There were only two veterans on the Crimson team, W. A. Morrison '25 and F. V. Crane '25, who led the scoring with 403 and 400 points respectively. The other individual scores were: Robert Blaney '26 386, T. E. Armstrong '24 385, and J. M. Pitcher '26 370.

The ranking of the 13 competing teams is as follows: Alabama Polytechnic Institute 2113, University of Missouri 2061, Oregon Agricultural College 2028, Princeton 1993, University of Utah 1974, Harvard 1944, University of Oklahoma 1913, Purdue 1897, Leland Stanford 1860, Texas A. and M. College 1857, University of Illinois 1857, University of Wisconsin 1826, and University of Chicago 1595.
