once Meet, only a week away,
Wolverines will get their last
nce for a tune-up here to-
row in the Michigan Open
~t.
ilchigan, trying for its third
secutive conference crown, will

men are spurred to the standout
performances which they will have
to give if they are to repeat as
Big Ten winners in their respec-
tive events.
Les Bird, indoor broad jump
winner two years ago, and defend-
ing champs Ray Locke (outdoor
shot put), Ergas Leps (outdoor
mile), Bennie McRae (indoor low
hurdles) and Tom Robinson' (In-
door 60- and 300-yd. dashes two
years running and outdoor 100-
and 220-yd. dashes) should all get
good enough competition tomor-
row to bring out their best.
Bird Challenged
Bird, who holds ,the varsity re-
cord of 24'10%", will be challeng-
ed: by two Michigan state fresh-
men, John Parker and Sherm
.Lewis, who have both done 23'6".
Parker, who edged Lewis for
first in the Michigan 'AAU Meet
earlier, this month and also won
the novice 300- and 600=yd. runs,
will be trying again tomorrow for
a triple in the same events.
Locke, who just regained his
second-semester eligibility, will be
matching tosses with Paul La
Spina of Miami, Ohio, and Barry
Donath, a Western Michigan
freshman from, Australia.' ,

I DIDN'T WANT TO BE STOCKPILED"

LES BIRD
... broad-jump champ

bring into tomorrow's meet a,
squad boasting Big Ten champions
,n six events, and should have a
good opportunity to develop a
razor edge for next Saturday's
meet at Champaign.
"It will give us a better chance
to become familiar with the odd
events (300, 600; 1000 yds.) which
ordinarily are not run in dual.
meets," explained Assistant Coach
Elmer Swanson.
Starts at 1 p.m.
Boad jump finals and other
qualifying heats start at 1 p.m.
in Yost Field House, the rest of
the field events are scheduled for
6:30, and the running events go
up for grabs at 7:30.
The Wolverines, who will be
strong in nearly all events, could
put on a real show if their top

Competition in Mile
In the mile Leps may be pushed
to a fast time to beat out a
couple of 4:15 milers, Bob Schul
of the Air Force and Bert Oh-
lander, a Western Illinois grad
from Scandinavia.
McRae should get his chief com-
petition from teammate Dick Ce-
phas, with whom he shares the
varsity low hurdle record. McRae
will also try his hand at the high
hurdles, and he will be facing two
of the same men in that race who
will meet him in the lows.
Entering both hurdle races are
Al IHowze, running unattached
from Western Michigan, and
Michigan State freshman Herm
Johnson, who reportedly turned
in clockings of under :14 for the
120-yd. highs in high school.
Explosive Field
Robinson meets an explosive
field in the 60-yd. dash. Besides
teammate John Gregg, who has
placed in two Big Ten meets, he
will go up against freshmen Mac
Hunter and Ken Burnley, as well
as ILewis (also in the broad Jump)
and Leroy Jackson from Western
Illinois, who won that event n
the Illinois Open in :06.2.

When Loren Gergens was working for his
B.S. degree in Business Administration at the
University of Denver, he had definite ideas about
the kind of job he wanted to land. He was de-
termined to profit from the experience of several
of his friends who had accepted promising jobs
only to find themselves in "manpower pools"-
waiting to be pulled into a responsible position.
"I didn't want to be stockpiled," Loren says.
"That's no way to start."
As a senior, Loren talked to twelve companies
and joined The Mountain States Telephone &
Telegraph Company, an associated company of
the Bell Telephone System.
From his first day challenges were thrown at
him thick and fast. First, he supervised a group
of service representatives who handle the com-
munications needs of telephone customers. Then

he served as manager of several telephone busi-
ness offices. In these jobs Loren had to prove
himself on the firing line, make right decisions
and carry them through. He knew his next jump
depended on only one man-Loren Gergens.
In July, 1960, he was made Sales Manager
in Boulder, Colorado.
"I'm on the ground floor of a newly created
telephone marketing organization. And I can tell
you things are going to move fast !" Loren says.
"It's rough at times, but hard work is fun when
you know you're going somewhere-in a busi-
ness where there's somewhere to go."
If you're interested in a job in which you can
be your own prime mover-a job in which you're
given a chance to show what you can do, right from
the start-you'll want to visit your Placement Ofice
