Oliphant to Try
for Fifth Sport
Hockey to Be New Branch for Army
Star; Has Letters in Four
West Point, N. Y., Jan. 9.-Elmer
Oliphant will try to win his "A" in a
fifth sport this winter.
Oliphant is the only athlete who has
ever won his "A" in four branches of
the Army sports and now he is de-
termined to win a .fifth. Oliphant has
been awarded his letter in football,
track, baseball and basketball and this
year he will try for the hockey seven.
Hockey is the only sport left and the
gridiron star has announced his in-
tention of winning a berth on the
Army team if possible.
Elmer reported to the basketball
team this winter and was counted
upon as a regular on the courts, but
he fids that basketball and hockey
conflict, so for the present basket-
ball will be passed up and he will de-
vote his energies to hockey.
If Oliphant wins his "A" with the
hockey team he may establish a new
record, for it is doubtful whether any
athlete at any college has ever won
letters in five different sports from a
single institution. In fact, it is doubt-
