Yost Field House was pretty
quiet last night until 6:45 p.m.
when Ron Shortt, a Michigan pole
vaulter, set a new freshman rec-
ord by vaulting 14'7". Due to lack
of competition the rest of the re-
sults included no new recordĀ§. Of
the 49 groups scheduled, only
Eastern Michigan, Bowling Green,

Shortt won the pole vault at
14'4", and then decided to try
14'7". He quit after 14'7" so he
could participate in tonight's var-
sitR meet. Shortt, last year's Mich-
igan state high school pole vault-
Ing champion, had previously
vaulted 14'5" for his personal high.
The old meet record was set by

Carl Watkins last year by vaulting
14'2". In the shotput, Geoffrey
Petrasek, another "M" frosh, miss-
ed' the old record by five inches
when he put the shot 49'7".
Two Michigan milers, Ken How
and Gary Gold, ran an extremely
close race as How edged out Gold
in the stretch. Their times were
4:19.5 and 4:20.6, respectively.
Sprinter Solomon Esbie showed

All of last night's action was
confined to the freshman and nov-
ice division. The varsity relays get
underway this afternoon at 1:30.
