Theta Chi Sets Record In Army Oversees Meet 
In Army Overseas Meet Lt. Gerald Karver, Penn State, won the 1500-meter run in 4 min., 02.1 sec., a new Army record, as the American E.T.O. team defeated the Mediterranean Zone, 69.24, before 25,000 G.I.'s in the biggest inter-theater Ar-my sports event ever held overseas. The contests took place August 26 at Frankfurt-on-Main, Germany. Among the score of generals occupying box seats were General George S. Patton, commander of the Third Army, and Lieutenant General Walter B. Smith, representing General Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was unable to attend. As a result of this performance on the part of Omega's track star, he is touring Europe as a member of the Fifth Army's track and field team.
