The highlight of the evening
was the 60-yd. dash which was
won by sophomore Tom Robinson,
who edged American Olympian Ira

his own mark set the year before.
He finished third in the low

Eeles Landstrom who took the
pole vault with a leap of 14' and
Jack Steffes whose jump of 23'6"

Sophomore Lester Bird twice

jumps were disqualified. He wound

Captain Mamon Gibson tied for
two seconds. He jumped 6'4" in
