Burnley Fourth on Decision
Team Approaches Perfect Form
By STAN KUKLA
In a ruling handed down by Big
Ten Commissioner Bill Reed yes-
terday, Ken Burnley was awarded
fourth place in the 60-yd. dash
and, as a result of this decision,
Michigan gained a first place tie
When Burnley was given last
place in the 60-yd. dash in the Big
Ten championships, Michigan
Coach Don Canham was led to re-
mark, "If Burnley is fourth, then
it's a tie meet."
These words could not have been
more prophetic, for, after review-
ing films of the race, the Big
Ten commissioner awarded Burn-
ley fourth place, giving Michigan
43 points and a first place tie
A picture showed that Burnley
did finish fourth andtTrent Jack-
son, of Illinois, finished last-the
reverse of the judges' decision.
Canham asked the meet referee
Tom Deckard to review the films
of the race. "They would've review-
ed the films anyway," said Can-

ham, "but they might've made the
same error as the judges.
"Both the Michigan and the Il-
linois runners wore white jerseys
and the judges probably just mix-
ed up the names when recording
the results. The films were taken
from the side and they would've
shown just the white jerseys, not
the big I' or 'M'.
"I would not have done any-
thing about it," Canhan contin-
ued. "But when Dave Good (Daily
sports writer) brought an enlarge-
ment of that picture, I asked the
referee to look at the films."
Commissioner Reed, who had the
final say in the matter, voiced
comments similar to Canham's
about the mix-up.
"It was obvious that the Illinois
man was designated," he expound-
ed, "because of the white jersey
that he wore."
Northwestern athletic director,
Stu Holcolm, and Wisconsin ath-
letic director, Ivan Williamson,
joined Reed and Deckard in the
decision to reverse the judges' de-
"This is the first case that I re-
member," said Reed, "in which a
decision was made' regarding a
first place in the final standings.
However, several times other
standings had been changed due
to similar action."
Reed did not feel that the
judges had called the race wrong-,
ly. "In effect it was an error in
judging, not in judgment," he ex-
"On the basis of clear evidence
of oversight in the original plac-
ings, not having to do with judg-
ment, the games committee has
ruled Burnley should be awarded
fourth place in the dash." was
Reed's final ruling.
"Anyway, it's more fun to be
first than second," exulted Gan-

That's how the Michigan gym- thetical perfect beam, and around

the record which the Wolverines
set last year with 163, under the
present scoring system which dates
back to 1938.
It could be argued, however, that
since there was a new event this
year, the longhorse vault, natural-
ly the score would be higher (up
to now, the vault had only been
used in scoring the all-around).
The Wolverines took a first, a
second, and a sixth in this event,
but even if those marks were
scratched from the scoring, they
would still have had 1851/, enough
to be the best ever.
Michigan set another record by
taking firsts in seven of the nine

FIRST HEARD about the "50 Mile Walkathon" from two nice old
ladies who were sitting next to me at "The Threepenny Opera."
These sociable and quite interesting converts to the physical fitness
craze thought it would be just wonderful if all young people would
take the President's suggestions to heart. My new-found friends, being
upwards of 65, could not picture themselves on a 50 mile hike; yet,
they were convinced that a 50 mile hike was just what I needed.
Now, before I endeavor to completely pull the carpet out from
under these women and others like them who go in for 50 mile hikes,
I will go on record as somewhat of a physical fitness enthusiast my-
self. Exercise can be, and should be, a necessary part of every person's
life, even a 65 year old lady's. However, I would like to point out that
not every "means" can be adequately justified by its "ends."
There can be no mistaking the "ends" which are given by
those who advocate 50 mile walks. The "end" is better health for
Americans. In this belief, every adherent to the hiking craze has
nothing but the best of motives. Even the use of a cheap publicity
stunt is warranted if ultimately the nation's health can be im-
My quibble with the Walkathon sponsors has nothing to do with
the "ends" toward which they are working. There is a great need to
make Americans more conscious of their health. The growing trend
towards sedentary entertainment rather than active entertainment
is a menace to a whole American generation brought up on television-
gazing and weaned, as it were, riding in automobiles.
Food for Thought ..,.
HE QUESTION I would like to ask advocates of 50 mile Walkathons
is this: "Do you think that a 50 mile hike is a help or a hindrance
to health?" For an answer to this question let me point out some
facts that are not generally known to the public.
In a lecture some time ago in Detroit, Dr. Ancel Keys, noted
crusader for drastic changes in the American diet, cited records of
the U.S. Army. The Army made a study of fighting men who were
killed during the Korean war, men between the ages of 18 and 25 for
the most part. The report, authenticated by autopsies, confirmed the
suspicion that the country was plagued by heart and circulatory
Autopsies of young men killed in Korea revealed that 75 per
cent had some degree of coronary or circulatory disease. 40 per
cent of all fighting men between 18 and 25 years had "serious"
hardening of the arteries and other degenerative changes.
Granting that some of these men might have been killed owing
to their degenerative circulatory trouble, the percentages quoted by
Dr. Keys indicate an acute problem. Obviously, none of the men in the
study knew of their condition. If they had, they would have been
exempted from military service. Dr. Keys' study shows that the cream
of the American crop is a pretty unhealthy bunch.
The rapidly increasing rate of heart attacks in our society fur-
ther corroborates the suspicion that the nation is growing soft. In the
light of this situation, a group of honorably motivated people is try-
ing to capitalize on the country's susceptibility to fads. Not only are
they wrong in their assumptions, bit they are flagrantly endangering
public health by propagating false tacit assumptions. Dr. Keys points
to a lifetime of poor eating habits, and the Walkathon enthusiasts
turn the public's attention to panaceas.
Mock-Heroics in Action.
THE AVERAGE AMERICAN male will get the idea, after hearing
about the "Walkathon" plan endorsed by the President, that any-
one can just start up and go on a 50 mile hike without ill effects.
Nothing could be farther from the truth. Every physical education
instructor or medical doctor in the country will tell you that the only
effective way to exercise is to GRADUALLY build up the difficulty
of the task and then to follow the exercise routine REGULARLY.
The average American is an already unhealthy organism. The
sudden exertion of a 50 mile Walkathon can do more damage to an
unprepared body than good. The emphasis upon Walkathons them-
selves does nothing to eradicate the widespread faulty eating habits
of Americans which are the major cause of cholesterol damage in the
body. The audience to which the Walkathon craze is directed is lulled
into a false sense of security by thinking that there can be a quick
'cure for being out of shape.
Furthermore, the Walkathon people try to make heroes out of
contestants who are not going to feel like heroes the day after the
Walkathon. The Walkathon will prove a very disillusioning exper-
ience to those honeed regular exercise the most.
Unfortunately, there is no short cut to good health. The Walka-
thon is an expensive way of doing nothing but damage to an uncondi-
tioned body. The athlete who is willing to gradually condition him-
self to the Walkathon is smart enough to realize the need for HABIT-
UAL exercise. The habitual exerciser does not need a Walkathon any-
The Walkathon craze is seducing just those people to whom it can
do the mort harm. The human heart is not made for exhausting stress
situations. Already-damaged arteries are not going to be improved
by "crash" programs. I'm sorry if I disillusioned any nice old ladies,
