Unless there is a different starting URL then the answer is likely to be no
because the existing query is using the POST mechanism rather than the GET
mechanism.  However, if you are on the command line you can do things like:

wget -O article.pdf 'http://math.colgate.edu/~integers/cgi-bin/get.cgi'
--post-data 'o1=pdf'

which will retrieve the PDF for Article 1 in volume 14 and save it to

The critical piece is the post data which selects the article.  The letter
"o" here refers to the volume (with a, b, c, etc., corresponding to vols 0,
1, 2, ...), the digit "1" is the article number within the volume, and
"=pdf" retrieves the PDF rather than the abstract.  Unfortunately because
this is a post, it cannot be encoded as part of the url itself.
