Page 4 the J I BSH EET  November 4, 1968 Ra11F round MOTOR SPORTS CLUB HAS CAR RALLY By Steve Marsh So you want to rally. That's good! Because November 9, the MotGr Sports Club will hold its first rally of the quarter. Railying is not cnly a fun sport, but a good way to get together with other peopL who enjoy driving. I suppose your next question is "Wlzat is a rally?" The rallymaster will set up a course on challenging roads, and then set speeds that you must maintain to win. He will write up rally instructions and you will have to read them carefully in order to stay on course. He does his best to confuse the driver, and it will take a bit of sleuthing to understand what the rallymaster has in mind. Two people are needed to run a rally, a driver and a navigator who reads the course instructions and keeps the driver on course. These teams fall into two categories-Novice and S.O.P. A novice team is experienced and sometimes uses rally equipment such as rally computers. S.O.P. stands for Seat of your Pants. These teams are new at the game and usually have only a watch to run by. The "Little 'un Rally" scheduled for November 9, will begin registration at 12 p.m. with the first car going out at 1:00 p.m. The starting point will be the lower parking lot of the College. Mark Nolte, the assistant rallymaster who set up the course, says, "It's an interesting, but simple course about 70 to 80 miles long. We have some great prizes and it should be great fun." Bring your girl, your boyfriend, your mother-anybody, and oh yes, don't forget the 50 cents for entry fee. We'll see you there. Pre-college test to be given Saturday on BCC campus The Washington Pre-College Test will be given here on Saturday, November 16. Any student who has not previously taken the test, and who feels that the test results would be helpful in planning his future can sign up for the test in the admissions office. The test will begin at 8:30 in the morning, and the $7.00 test fee can be paid the morning of the test. According to Frank Bosone, Financial Aid Officer and test administrator, the Washington Pre-College Test is designed to provide students with as much predictive information about themselves as possible. Each student will receive a data sheet with predictions of success in over 40 subject matter areas. All students taking the test this fall will receive the data within two months. Unlike many other tests, the Pre-College Test is not used to select applicants for admission to colleges and universities. It is designed solely as a counseling and guidance tool for those who plan some type of post-high school training. Further information may be obtained in the admissions office.

NATIONAL BANK OF COMMERCE MEMBER FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION DEPOSITS INSURED UP TO $15.000 Helmsmen Harriers place fifth Placing fifth in the Clark Invitational on Oct. 25th the Cross Country squad proved to be a powerful team in the meet held in Vancouver, Washington. The final team standings of the meet were as follows: College Score Place Mount Hood (Portland) 41 1 Highline 51 2 Yakima Valley College 91 3 Tacoma 115 4 BELLEVUE 118 5 Clark 154 6 Portland Community 177 7 Olympic 238 8 Lower Columbia College 248 9 In case the scoring looks a little strange to you, the team with the lowest number of points is acclaimed the victor in cross country competition. The first five members of each tema to cross the finish line are counted toward the final team standings. With this type of scoring one team could have captured first place in the individual scoring but still lose the meet as Highline did in the Clark Meet. Cross country scoring is a reflection of'a team's overall strength not their individual champions. To give an indication of Mount Hood's tremendous team strength they captured second, third, sixth, fourteenth, sixteenth, seventeenth and the last place runner for the Portland team finished a remarkable 23rd. The overall individual champion was Jack Plye of Highline College who covered the 3.3 mile course in a time of 17:37. Bellevue's runners ran in a pack and as a result finished in fifth place as a team even though they didn't place high in the individual standings. Jim Garrison, the outstanding freshmen from Lake Washington High School placed 19th in a time of !8:50. Following Jim in the standings were Doug Bates 22nd in 18:58; Ric Whitcomb 24th in 19:17; Dan Franco 26th in 19:20; Jeff Holt 27th in 19:23; Ron Stokes 31st in 19:49 and Don Pedrich in 47th in 21:03. Coach Frank Bosone said he was very pleased with the team's performance. The competition was extremely talented exclaimed the coach. Mount Hood is the number one cross country team in Oregon and Highline and Yakima Valley rank one and two in Washington. Coach Bosone looks ahead to the upcoming state meet which will be held Saturday Nov. 9th at Mount Veronon at 1 p.m. Last Saturday the Harriers ran at the T-Bird Invitational at Highline College and Coach Bosone expected a fine showing from the young men on the squad. With seven freshmen on this year's squad Coach Bosone looks forward to attaining an even better season next year with his seasoned performers. This year only three returning lettermen are on the squad. These men are Stokes, Dan and Joe Franco. The squad suffered its first real setback of the season this week when Ric Whitcomb decided to withdraw from the college. Whitcomb has been a fine runner all season and will be missed but Coach Bosone thinks that the other capable runners will place well and the team should turn in a respectable showing in the final two meets of the season.
