Discussing with reporters his chances of running a 4-minute mile Wes said: "Of course conditions have to be just right, and I think I will get - those conditions before I graduate next spring."

West Texas is the AFAA Club. It means Andrews For All-America. There's nothing official about it but a lot of folks belong — coaches, sports writers, television and radio men and sports publicists. They would like to see D: c. Andrews, the great wingman of Hardin-Simmons University, named to the All- America team next fall. Murray Evans, coach of Hardin- Simmons, starts it off by saying he wouldn't trade Evans for any other end in the nation. Andrews, who will co-caplaln the Hardin-Simmonj team next fall, turned In such an outstanding job as a junior last year that he was named on both the defensive and offensive All - Border Conference teams. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound Andrews caught 36 passes for 497 yards and nine touchdowns in pacing the conference. But his real forte, say the critics, is defense. So he will be just what Is needed with abandonment of the two-platoon system. Old-timers around say Andrews is the best all-around football player Hardin-Simmons ever had. And this school produced fellows like Ed Sprinkle, Bulldog Turner and Bob McChesney. Mike Brumbelow, coach of Texas Western, rates Andrews the best end in the conference. Burnie Kee of the Fort Worth Star-Teegram says Andrews is the best all-around end in the country. And Sam Baugh, the former professional star of the Washington Redskins who now is a coach at Hardin-Simmons, says: "Tell me where there is a better all-around end in college football."

Greg Peter Gregersen, pastor of the United Church at nearby Windsor Mills, still finds favor with the sport. "I believe boxing Is one of the best sports in which a boy can develop physically, and as a minister I would go all the way with amateur boxing. The tendency today is towards professionalism and there is not much we can do about it." As a teenager in his native Denmark Gregersens proficiency at gymnastics led him to boxing. But he was also interested in the church and its work. When he came to Canada in 1930 he preferred church attendance and gospel meetings to the boxing world. After taking the Canadian title By MURRAY OLDERMAN NEA Stiff Correspondent VILLANOVA, Pa.—(NEA) — Maybe you think it takes speed and stamina to make a §reat distance runner, but listen to Fred Dwyer of Villanova and you've got another think coming. "Once you get past the sprints." says Dwyer, "It's mostly mind over matter. The ratio is three-quarters mental determination to one-quarter natural ability. "What better nroof could you want than Fred Wilt, who started with absolutely nothing and became our leading miler?"
