'M' Captures 2-Mile Relay

Cindermen Capture Six Firsts
In Record-Filled Open Meet

' 'By The Associated Press
Ergas Leps did it again yester-
day as he put on another of his
patented finishing kicks to give
Michigan a win in the two-mile
relay in the Penn Relays.
The Wolverines had won the'

four-mile relay on Friday, and
thus duplicated their efforts of
last year when they won the four-
mile and distance medley relays.
. Michigan also added a second
in the 440-yd. relay, finishing

about four yards behind the win-
ning Abilene Christian team. Ray
Locke also experienced success as
he got off a throw of 54'9" to
place second in the shot put.
Aquino Close
Charles Aquino ran the first leg
for the Wolverine quartet, stayed
near the front and gave the baton
to- Walt Schaefer in third place.
Schaefer dropped back to sixth
but was still not far off the pace.
It was here that Dave Martin turn-
ed in a fine third leg to start
Lps off in second place.,
Leps calmly held second until
the final 100 yards when he turned
on the steam and turned what
had been a tight four team race
into a rout. Fordham finished
second to Michigan's 7:34.2 win-
ning pace.
All Not Peaches
All was not peaches for the
Wolverines, however, Carter Reese,
running the third leg of the sprint
medley, suddenly dropped the ba-
ton. He picked it up, but was too
far behind so Michigan dropped,
out rather than let Leps run his
two mile leg hopelessly out of
Abilene Christian, hoping to
take three wins after its hopes for
four victories had been shattered
by Yale on Friday, got off to a
fast start and easily took the 440-
yd. relay in :40.9. The time tied
a meet record the Texans had set
in 1959.
Villanova Whips Them
This medium-sized Texas hope
was once again destroyed, how-
ever, this time by Villanova.
Villanova started it off by up-
setting the Texans in the 880-yd.,
and then finished by winning the
mile relay for the seventh straight
year. They are the first team in
the long history of the carnival
to accomplish the feat.
The Philadelphia school also
added a victory in the 480-yd.
shuttle hurdles to be the top win-
ner of the meet with three cham-
pionship of America relay victor-
Yale Double Winner
Yale joined Michigan as a dou-
ble winner when it won the sprint
medley relay with a 3:25.2 clock-
ing. The Elis' great Tommy Car-
rol put on a finishing spurt of
his own to overhaul NYU on the
final turn to win by eight yards.
His time for the 880 was 1:51.3.
Yale tried to come back in the
two mile relay just 35 minutes
later, but with everybody looking
for a dual between Leps and Car-
roll, the tired Elis couldn't keep
the pace.
Russ Rogers of Maryland State,
voted the top athlete of the meet,
won the 120-yard high hurdles in
14 flat. Yesterday he captured the
440-yard hurdles. All told, he ran
nine races.

Michigan easily outclassed its
opponents yesterday in the Mich-
igan Open track meet by win-
ning six firsts, six seconds, and
six thirds.
One might wonder about the
performance of Mac Hunter, hail-
ed as a high-calibre freshman, in
the 100-yd. dash. His time of
:09.7, while very good-for a fresh-
man, might not be as exceptional
as expected.

The Ann Arbor Rugby club
swept to its eighth straight vic-
tory yesterday, downing a game
but outmanned Kitchener-Water-
loo squad, 28-0.
Harry Newman was the big man
again for the local ruggers with
three tries and two conversions.
ItY was the overall power of the
backfield which submerged the
foe from Ontario. Time and again
the forwards (linemen) scooped
the ball back, and Newman, Fron-
cie Gutman, Bruce Thompson and
co. would be on their way.
Waterloo' couldn't keep an at-
tack going and consequently were
bottled up in their own zone for
most of the game.
Ann Arbor opened up with a
score early in the first half, only
to have it discounted. It was only
a minor setback however, and
they quickly started mounting the
Thompson, Dick McClear, John
Appleford, Jerry Baker, and Ron
Reosti scored the other tries for
Ann Arbor.
Kitchener was plagued through-
out the contest with a series of
minor injuries, none of them
serious, but still enough to hamper
Sits play.

The Ontario club was able to
hold its own in the line play, but
its backs couldn't keep the ball
moving well enough and lost pos-
session too often.
Next week the ruggers will
travel to Toronto and then follow
it with a trip to Chicago. The
next home game will be in three
