O'Brien broke his world indoor
16-pound shot put record with a
tremendous heave of 62 feet, 5
inches last night in the 9th An-
nual Journal Track Games at the
The burly weightman, who has
won his specialty in the last two
Olympics, sent the shot soaring on
a record flight in his fifth attempt.
It shattered his old mark of 62'-
1%" set in New York last year.
O'Brien, a native of Los Angeles
who starred at the University of
Southern California, hit 62 feet
even on his second toss, then
added a couple of 60-footers.
Carefully marking a spot at
which to take aim, O'Brien thrilled
a packed crowd of 11,501 with his
tremendous heave. He sent the
shot just past his marker as the
fans roared.
Eastern Michigan's Hayes Jones
continued his domination of 1956
Olympic Gold Medal winner Lee
Calhoun in capturing the 50-yard
high hurdles.
Jones equalled the meet record
of :06.1 seconds in defeating Cal-
houn for the sixth straight time
on the winter board circuit. The
1959 winner, Willie May of Chi-
cago, trailed Calhoun.
Jones tied the meet mark in
winning his trial heat despite
knocking over the second and
third barriers. He encountered no
diffculty in blazing to a two-
stride triumph in the finale.
Ed Miles of Indiana University
won the 50-yard dash in :05.3, up-
setting Penn State's highly-touted
Bob Brown. Miles hit the wire with
plenty to spare as Brown had to
go all out for runnerup honors.
Big Ten champion Tom Robinson
of Michigan was third and Brooke
Johnson of Chicago fourth.
Michigan's entries in the meet
didn't fare very well, as the best
the mile relay team could do
again was second and the two-
mile relay team finished third.

The mile relay team pressed
Illinois all the way but the finish-
ing kick by the Illini beat the
Wolverines to the wire.
In the two-mile Western Michi-
gan ran away from both Michigan
and Michigan State to win easily.
Michigan's team of Ergas Leps,
Earl Deardorff, Tony Seth, and.
Dave Martin finished third.
In the 50-yard high hurdles
Michigan's Big Ten champion
Benny McRae ran fourth to three
of the top hurdlers in the country
in Jones, Calhoun and May.
One of the top performances for
Michigan was turned in by Steve
Williams in the high jump, but
the top effort went for naught
as the fine leap was not among the
top jumps of the evening. The
field included such top stars as
John Thomas, Boston University's
world record holder.

Grosse Pointe, by winning both
relays, the final two events on the
program, edged Birmingham, 47-
43, for the Michigan "A" swim-
ming championships last night
before an enthusiastic and over-
flow crowd of 3,000 in Varsity Pool.
Trailing Birmingham througout
the evening, Grosse Pointe won
the 200-yard medley relay to tie
the meet at 33-33 and then sealed
the victory with a decisive victory
in the climactic 200-yard freestyle
Birmingham, second in each re-
ley, easily outdistanced defending
champion Ann Arbor for third
place, 43-30.
Individual champions crowned
last night were Jim Elliot, Birm-
ingham, 50-yard freestyle; Enn
Mannard, Ann Arbor, 100-yard
butterfly; Neil Watts, Monroe, 200-
yard freestyle; Jim MacIntosh,
Southfield, 100-yard backstroke;

Bill Driver, Birmingham, 100-yard
breaststroke; Lauren Bowler,
Grosse Pointe, 100-yard freestyle;
Dave Bale, Flint Central, one-
meter diving; and Barry Johnson,
Royal Oak Kimball.
Outstanding single performance
was by Driver in the breaststroke.
Trailing Battle Creek's John Baker
for most of the race, Driver
sprinted into the lead in the last
25 yards to win by inches.
His time of 1:06.1 set a new
state and national prep mark.
Grosse Pointe set the only other
record of the meet with their
clocking of 1:46.5 in the medley

BOSTON - Boston's cripples
jelled behind Vic Stasiuk and Don
McKenney to defeat Detroit 5-1
yesterday and prevent the Red
Wings from clinching a National
Hockey League playoff berth.
Making a last stand to protect
their own faint playoff aspirations,
the Bruins jumped off to a 2-0
first period lead. McKenney scored
a goal and assisted Doug Mohns in
the getaway.
A Boston Garden crowd of 11,760
then watched winger Stasiuk col-
lect his 27th and 28th goals of
the season.

O uy Gendron scored the other
Boston goal, while len Lunde pro-
duced the lone Red Wing tally late
in the second period.
TORONTO - The New York
Rangers capitalized on Toronto
fumbles to score a 4-1 National
Hockey League victory last night
over the Maple Leafs.
The Leafs outskated and outshot
the Rangers in both the second
and third periods but couldn't do
much inside the New York blue-
line, failing to dent a brilliant de-
fensive stand by goaltender Al

MONTREAL - Jacques Plante
chalked up his third shutout of the
National Hockey League season
last night as the Montreal Cana-
diens defeated the Chicago Black
Hawks 5-0.
Plante took a firmer hold on his
fifth straight Vezina Trophy as the
NHL's top goal-tender over the
Hawks' Glenn Hall. Plante has al-
lowed six less goals than Hall,
with a week left in the season. The
Trophy goes to the goalie least
scored upon.
