Canham Chooses Four-Mile Relay Have a real cigarette-have a


A bad break? You might call it
that land track coach Don Can-
ham isn't exactly happy about the
situation, either.
The problem referred to is the
order of events for the Penn Re-
lays, which start Friday. Michigan
is the defending champion in both
the four-mile and distance medley
relays. Last year the events were
scheduled on different days, but
this year, alas and alack, the four-
mile relay event has been moved
up to Friday, along with the al-
ready scheduled distance medley.
Only Finals
These two events will be the
only two finals held on Friday. Or
rather, they will be the only two
of the eight "championship of
America" relay events on the pro-
gram, for the meet has a total
of 112 events in all. The cham-
pionship of America series is the

headliner, however, with the 440,
880, one - mile, two - mile, 480
shuttle-hurdle and sprint medley
relays rounding out the series.
But, to get back to Canham's
dilemma, Michigan can only enter

one of the Friday events because
they are too close together, and
a lack of depth would force the
same men to run on both teams.
Canham has decided that it will
be the four-mile. This figures to
be a better choice, because the
report is out that Yale can field

quite a team in the distance med-
They haven't run the event this
spring, but have four outstanding
runners in the persons of Jim
Stack (880), Jay Luck (440), Tom
Carroll (% mile) and Bobby Mack
for the final mile. Many figure
that this will be the Eli's toughest
team, especially with their great
distance man Carroll on it. And
besides, how can they lose with
Luck running.
If Michigan enters this event,
the outcome could all depend on
the final mile between Mack and
the Wolverines stretch-runner, Er-
gas Leps.
Less Star-studded
The four-mile field is less star-
studded with Manhattan and
Fordham figuring to be the strong-
est contenders. Michigan has Jim
Wyman, Dave Martin and Leps
back from last year's winner. Walt
Schaefer will replace Fred Mon-
tour, with no drop off in quality.
The Wolverine foursome did
17:27.3 last year, and the closest
any team has come to that this
