man in 1929-30 and is the varsity
220 record holder, co-holder of the
century mark, and anchored the
440-yd. relay team that set the
record that fell to the latest edi-
tion of a Michigan track team last
week. The quartet that bettered
the :41.9 mark set' in 1930 was
made up of John Gregg, Don Chal-
fant, Dick Cephas and anchorman
Tom Robinson, who did the dis-
tance in :41.4.
Michigan also took the mile re-
lay with a time of 3:18.5. Dick
Cephas, Tony Seth, Dave Martin
and Marsh Dickerson did the
honors in this one. Bryan Gibson
usually runs as leadoff man for
the mile relay, but was withheld
from this race to take a first in
the 440 run.
Tom Robinson, hampered by a
cold, ran nothing longer than a
leg of the 440-yd. relay, but was

able to sprint a :9.4 100-yd. dash.
The time would have been a new
varsity record, eclipsing the pre-
vious mark of Tolan and co-holder

Other Michigan firsts were taken
by Captain Mamon Gibson in the
pole vault, Seth in the 880, Mar-
tin in'the mile, Stanger in the high
hurdles, Crownley in the shot put,
Cephas in the high jump. The
two-mile run saw a rarity in a
dead heat between Dick Schwartz
and Cam Gray, both of Michigan.
