Robinson Ties Old Mark;
'M' Thinclads Top Field

By JIM BENAGH
Special to The Daily
MADISON, Wis.-Turbulent Tom
Robinson churned his way into the
Big Ten record book twice here
last night and teammate Les Bird
broke his own varsity broad jump
best to pace Michigan ' into the
limelight in the qualifying rounds
of the Big Ten track champion-
ship.
Robinson equalled Conference
marks in the 60- and 300-yd.
dashes as he earned his choice of
lanes in today's finals which get
underway at 1 p.m. CST.
The burly Bahaman dashed
through the shorter sprint in 6:1
to tie the record performances of
Ohio State's Jesse Owens (1935)
and Michigan's Sam Stoller (1936).
The time also matched Stoller's
ancient varsity mark.
In the 300 Robinson equalled
the standard of 30:8 set by Ralph
Fessenden of Illinois in 1955.
Bird Wins Final
Bird won the only final event of
the night with his record 24'10%"
leap. The, jump was made on his
first attempt and he injured his
ankle on his second try. It bettered
his indoor mark by one-half inch.
But the performance was enough
to outdistance Illinois' Paul Fore-
man, his longtime rival of British
West Indies' competition.
Foreman finished second, fol-
lowed by Al Phillips, Indiana; Del
Coleman, Illinois, and Frank Tor-
son, Minnesota.
Michigan's Lou Williams was a
non-pointmaking seventh but less
than four inches of third place.
Although the broad jump final
gave Illinois an early 6-5 edge over
Michigan in team scoring, the
qualifying matches were domi-
nated by Wolverines. Michigan
placed ten men in 14 semi-finals
* and finals. Indiana was second
with eight qualifiers while Illinois
and Minnesota each had seven.
Chances Perk Up
dIt was one of the best Fridays
(qualifying rounds) we ever had,"
said Michigan Coach Don Can-
ham, who admitted it perked up
the Wolverines' chances against
the Illini.
Along with Robinson, hurdler
Pete Stanger and sophomore Dick
Cephas each placed twice. Stan-

ning came with strong showings

runs. It was also in these middle
distances that Illinois faltered
most. Sophs Marsh Dickerson and
surprising Frank Geist took sec-
onds in their respective heats in
the $00 as Illinois was shut out.
In the half-mile, Tony Seth had
a first and Earl Deardorff added a
second. Illinois looked strong here,
however, as George Kerr and Tedd
Beastallgained seconds and thirds.
Fred Montour and Wally Schae-
fer qualified second and third in
the 1,000. But more important was
that they shoved Illinois' two
hopefuls out of third place and a
chance to qualify. Michigan's other
qualifier was dashman John Gregg
who ran an impressive 60.
While things went Michigan's
way in most phases, Canham said
that Illinois' overall role as favor-
ite had not changed too much. He
points to the shotput as the pos-
sible deciding factor.
The Wolves were probably aided
by the way Ohio is using injury-
hampered Davis. He will run the
60, the 440 and mile relay instead
of the hurdles where he could hurt
Michigan.

UPSETS:

Wolverine Grapplers Fall Behind Minnesota Squad

By DAVE LYON
Special to The Daily
IOWA CITY-Minnesota's well-
balanced wrestling team placed
men in finalist spots in seven of
the eight weight divisions here yes-
terday and became a good bet to
regain the Big Ten title which it
last won two years ago.
But Michigan, on the strength of
three excellent performances in
semi-final bouts, moved into a
second place tie with the host
Hawkeyes. Iowa put four men in
today's championship bouts and
although neither Iowa nor Michi-
gan will probably catch the Goph-
ers, the two teams should stage an
interesting battle for second place.
Minnesota, which will send two
finalists and five consolation men
to the Iowa Fidldhouse mats, leads
the pack with 19 points. Dead-

locked with 12 apiece are Iowa and
Michigan.
- The other teams' point totals
look like this: Michigan State, 11;
Illinois, 9; Indiana and North-
western, 8; Wisconsin, 6; Ohio
State and Purdue, 4.
Not Satisfying
Minnesota's seven point lead
was not too satisfying to Gopher
coach Wally Johnson. Obviously
impressed with the semi-finalper-
formances of Mike Hoyles, Don
Corriere and Dennis Fitzgerald,
Johnson said, "We've got to watch
out for those Michiganders."
All three of Michigan's semi-
final victories might be considered
upsets. Hoyles took care of Gopher
Ron Andrews, one of the favorites
for the 123-lb. title, 6-2.
Corriere, one of Michigan's fine
sophomores, pulled a string on
Northwestern's Art Kraft, 6-4.
Kraft was considered by many the
probable titlist at 157 pounds.
Second Press
Fitzgerald outlasted Indiana's
Fred Redeker, winning his second
straight fall of the tournament
on a body press at 8:37. Redeker
had been beaten only once in dual
meets and that loss was also to
Fitzgerald.
Hoyles faces Iowa's Vince Gar-
cia in the 123-lb. title bout today
at 2 p.m. CST. Corriere who beat
