AT PHILADELPHIA:
Leps Key to 'M'
Chances in Relays

.

By BOB ZWINCK
It's off to the Carnival this
weekend for some of Michigan's
best track men - not the Michi-
gras, however, but rather the Penn
Relay Carnival.
There are 115 events in all, so
it is at least partially evident that
there will be more than just relays
(after all, what's in a name?) al-
OPEN:
Meet To
Be Held
Saturday
By STAN KUKLA
The Michigan Athletic Depart-
ment and the Track Department
have added another attraction to
the already full Michigras slate
this Saturday afternoon, the an-
nual Michigan Open.
This wasn't a spur of the mo-
ment idea, however. In fact, this
year will be the sixth annual run-
ning of the event and is just by
coincidence that it falls during
Michigras.
At Ferry Field
The meet will be held at Ferry
Field, starting at 1 in the after-
noon and hopefully ending at 4:30.
Despite the fact that the team's
stars will be either competing in
the Drake Relays or the Penn Re-
lays, the meet will not be lack-
luster."
Elmer Swanson, assistant track
coach and director of the non-
AAU sanctioned event, said that
there will be about 125 entrants in
the 16 track and five field events.
These competitors will be those
who aren't competing in the major
meets.
"This meet was established with
the idea in mind of giving the
players who can't go to Penn or
Drake meets some competition so
they won't go stale with a two
week lay-over," said Swanson.
Fierce Competition
"Because of the fierce competi-
tion at Penn, the coaches only take
their very best runners - a small
squad at most. Meanwhile, the
rest of the team is left home to
practice - and you can't get much
done just practicing.
"So about six years ago we got
the idea of holding our own meet
during this time to keep our men
fresh and to do the same for the
other teams. The idea caught on
quickly and was met with enthu-
siasm from the other coaches.
"It also gives the freshman team
a good chance to get some valu-
able experience," he finished.
MSU Here
Teams from Michigan State,
Eastern Michigan, and Western
Michigan will be competing
against the Michigan team. M-
Masters University, in. Hamilton,
Ontario, will be sending John
Passmore, a hurdler, to partici-
pate in the meet. All the schools
will be sending both varsity and
freshman squads to the meets.
In the meet last year, Michigan
gained a trio of sixes - six firsts,
six seconds and six thirds. With a
strong freshman team Michigan
stands a chance of doing as well
or better.
Michigan will be challenged by
other teams, who have been im-
proving as much as, if not more
than, they have.

though the relays do get the most
noise.
In Four Relays
Coach Don Canham's athletes
are entered in the four-mile, dis-
tance medley, two-mile, and mile
relays and four individual events.
Michigan relay hopes depend
largely on the usually-great an-
chor laps of Captain Ergas Leps,
who may finish for all four relay
teams.
Michigan is the defending
champ in the four-mile relay, so
Jim Neahusan, Jay Sampson, Dave
Hayes, and Leps are out to keep
us in that same position for next
year.
The distance medley quartet
will be Ken Burnley, Charles
Aquino, Hayes and Leps. They won
this event at last week's Ohio Re-
lays, and are given a good chance
to take it on Friday.
Also a Good Chance
The two-mile relay will also
have a good chance. Hayes, Samp-
son, Aquino, and Leps carry the
colors in this one. Here, too, Mich-
igan is the defending champion.
As for the other relay team, the
mile unit, Burnley, Carter Reese,
Aquino, and possibly Leps will see
duty.
That should give the relay boys
a good workout since there are
only seven different ones sched-
uled to run, sixteen legs against
some top competition.
In the individual events, Bennie
McRae will go in the 120-yd. high
hurdles; Steve Williams will be in
the high jump; Rod Denhart and
possibly Steve Overton in the pole
vault; and Dave Raimey, if his leg
is well enough by then, in the
broad Jump.
Must Improve
It is hoped that Denhart's
vault of 14'81/2" at Ohio last week
shows evidence of even better
things to come. In fact, his pre-
vious best doesn't figure to leave
him in contention because there
will be a field of 151 vaulters at
Philadelphia, the site of the Re-
lays.
Raimey claims his muscle pull
doesn't bother him, but he is not
as yet certain to compete.
Yanks Release
Robin Roberts
NEW YORK (1) - Robin Rob-.
erts, a 234-game winner for the
Philadelphia Phillies in the Na-
tional League, was given his un-
conditional release yesterday by
the world champion New York
Yankees.
Roberts, a 35-year-old right-
hander, never threw a ball for the
Yankees in the regular season.
However, he did appear in five ex-
hibition games and worked 11 inn-
ings, allowing 15 hits and eight
runs.
The former Philie whiz kid of
the 1950 pennant winners was
purchased by the Yanks for $25,-
000 last Oct. 16. His contract re-
portedly called for a $29,000 sal-
ary.
"It was a gift and a gamble,"
said Roy Hamey, the Yanks' gen-
eral manager who announced the
release. There was press box spec-
ulation that Roberts was cut loose
at such an early date to give him
a chance to hook on with some
other club.
"I regret that I have not been
able to pitch Roberts more," said
manager Ralph Houk. It is our
feeling that he should have every
chance to get another job and it is
for that reason that we are re-
leasing him at this time."
