ion was unable to overtake Wil-
liams' long lead and had to settle
for second place again.
The winner's time was a very
good 1:24.5.
The Wolverine runners picked
up their third second place in the#
two mile relay, finishing behind
the top Yale team ofaBill Leggatt,
Ed Slowik, Jim Stack and Tom#
Foursome Pushes Yale
The quartet of Frank CGeist,
Earl Deardorff, Tony Seth and
Leps (back for his third job as
anchor) pushed the Elis to a new
meet record. Yale's time of 7:27.4
was considerably under the old
record of 7:30.1 set by Michigan
State in 1938.
Michigan was defending champ-
ions in this event, and will have
a good chance at regaining its
crown next year as three of this
year's starters will still be eligible.
The mile relay team was the
lone entry which didn't fare well.
It fell before Villanova, Morgan
State and Yale. The crew was
made up of Cercone, Bryan Gib-
son, Marsh Dickerson, and Seth
-two of whom were tired from
previous events of the afternoon.
Sixth In Row
The win for Villanova was their
sixth in a row in the climactic
event of the meet and was ac-
complished in a very good 3:12.2.
McRae didn't run in- the 120
high hurdle final for which he
had qualified Friday afternoon be-
cause coach Don Canham was
saving him for the sprint relay
While all the excitement was
centered on the track, the action
by the high jump area was in-
creasing. Here Boston University's
outstanding 19 year old sopho-
more, John Thomas, was leaping
as no athlete had before in out-
door competition.
A crowd of 42,138 saw the mist
hanging over Franklin field be-
tween the bar and Thomas' arch-
ing form as he cleared 7'11/" on
his first try.
Betters Record
This bettered by half an inch
the record set by Russia's Yuri

Stepanov in 1957 when he was
wearing the notorious "elevator"
sole on his jumping spike.
Steve Williams of Michigan
managed a tie for third place be-
hind Thomas and Indiana's Reg-
gie Shepard. His best jump was

beat' Duke pre-med student Dave
Sime by three yards as he equalled
the world's record of :20.6 for the
200 meters around a curve. The
record is shared by three, other
American sprinters.
On another of the metric ser-
ies of events, Eastern Michigan's
Hayes Jones once again beat Lee
Calhoun of Winston Salem in the
110 meter high hurdles. His time
was :13.6.

Two evenly balanced squads of
Michigan football players slogged
their way through a two-hour
scrimmage in the Michigan Sta-
dium yesterday with the Blue
team emerging a muddy 18-0
Scoring twice for the Blue team
was halfback Reid Bushong. In
the first quarter he plunged over
from 'the one-yard line 'and then
in the opening minutes of the sec-
ond he raced 65 yards on an off-
tackle play.
The Blue's final touchdown
came in the fourth quarter when
freshman end Bob Filar picked

off a stray pass in the White
backfield and raced 20 yards into
the end zone.
A steady rain throughout the'
game prevented either side from
mustering much of an aerial at-
tack. The game was mostly a
defensive battle between the two
lines with long offensive gains
held to a minimum.
Next Saturday the Wolverines
will conclude their 20-day practice
session with the annual Spring
Game in the Stadium. The contest
will be played under regular game
conditions and the public is In-
vited to attend.

The annual Michigan Open was
held this afternoon despite the
usual Ann Arbor "spring" weath-
The sparse 'crowd became spars-
er with each downpour of icy rain,
of which there were many. Some
excellent times were recorded in
sprints from the grandstand to the
shelter beneath them as the tor-
rents increased in intensity late
in the afternoon.
Paul Jones of Wayne State set
the only record of the day as he
ran the high hurdles in :14.7. His
time betters the old Michigan
Open record set by Walt Atchison
of Michigan in 1950 by a tenth of
a second.
Not Threatened
Jones, the defending champion
in this event, was never seriously
threatened. Wayne also had the
winning 880-yard relay team as
they defeated Western Michigan
and third place Eastern Michigan.
The Michigan 440 quartet of
Quint Sterling, Don Chalfant, Jack
Steffes and John Twomey ran
away from Eastern, and the West-
ern freshmen, in the good time of
Bill Hammerstein of Michigan
turned in another impressive per-
formance today as he romped to
victory in the 880-yard run. His
time of 2:00.7 was considered quite
good considering the poor condi-
tions., Together with his record set
at the Ohio Relays last week, this

The two-mile run was won by
surprising Bruce Kidd of the East
York Athletic Club. Kidd is a 16
year old junior at Malverne Col-
legiate in Toronto. He holds the
Canadian high school one - mile
record and last year won both the
one and two-mile events in the
Ontario high school meet.
Today, competing against men
four and five years his, senior, he
won his event in 9:29.7, a full 300
yards ahead of the second place
runner. The honors student will
attend the University of Toronto
in 1961.
Jack Steffes' broad jump of
21'8/4" was good enough for a sec-
ond as last year's champion, Dan
Watkins of Detroit, defeated him
on the very last jump of the day.
Jerry Gerich placed third in the.
high jump, and Radford was sec-
ond with Jerry Bushong third in
the discus to round, out the Mich-
igan scoring.
