Tom Robinson Suffers Injury,
Will Not Run in MSU Relays
By TOM WITECKI
Michigan's Big Ten spring cham-
pion Tom Robinson will not com-'
pete in the Michigan State Relays
at East Lansing this Saturday be-
cause of a cramp in his right
The Bahaman speedster suffered
the injury while running in the
Chicago Track Club dual meet last
Friday night at Yost Fieldhouse.
While the injury is not a serious
one, it has prevented the Michi-
gan sprinter from running at top
speed in practice sessions this
Failed To Respond1
Robinson said. "My leg has
failed to respond to treatment
given it this week; thus, Coach
Canham and I both thought it
would be a good idea not to enter
the Relays. "Until the leg responds
to treatment, Robinson will be
limited to light workouts.
Robinson's withdrawal ruins the
plans of Michigan State promot-
ers, who had matched the Wol-
verine junior against Charlie Tid-
well of Kansas in the 75-yd. dash.
Since Robinson is the Big Ten 60-
and 300-yard champion and Tid-
well is the NCAA 100-yd, titlist,
this was billed as one of Satur-
day's top races.
The thing that hurt most about
Robinson's new injury was that he
had just begun to show signs of
full recovery from the ,one he
suffered last spring. Running in
the Penn Relays last May, the
Wolverine sprinter pulled a ham-
string muscle in the same right
n v .....
. . ,
This injury slowed him up all
last spring and when he attempted
to run in the Big Ten outdoor
meet, he seriously reinjured it.
Thus, Robinson was forced to sit
out the rest of the outdoor season,
missing the NCAA meet, the na-
tional AAU meet and the Pan-
American meet in Chicago.
Robinson rested all this time
and didn't run again until early
this winter. His time trial clock-
ings were impressive and it looked
as if he was on the road to re-
The last two weekends, in fact,
he looked like the Robinson of last
year, running :6:2 in the 60 and
:31.2 in the 300. The times are
especially impressive since it is
still early in the season and Rob-
inson like most runners has yet to
work himself into top physical
Saturday was to have been Rob-
inson's first race against real
tough competition this, winter.
Robinson had never raced against
Tidwell and had been looking for-
ward to meeting the Kansas star.
But that will have to wait until
another day, perhaps the Texas
Relays in May, or the NCAA meet
in June-that is if Robinson fully
recovers from his injuries.
Right now Michigan Coach Don
Canham and Wolverine track fans
aren't looking quite that far
ahead. They are thinking of three
weeks from this Saturday when
the Wolverines will be called upon
to defend their Conference indoor
track title at Columbus.
Robinson, who is the Big Ten
record holder in two events: :6.1
in the 60 and :30.3 in the 300-is
a key factor in Michigan's
chances. With Robinson,'the Wol-
verines came up with several spec-
tacular performances to win the
indoor title last winter. Without
Robinson the Wolverines failed to
perform spectacularly and lost the
outdoor title to Illinois last spring.
A healthy Robinson is a shoo-in
for two firsts in the Conference
and can be expected to run a fast
leg in the mile relay. Both in
points scored and psychologically,
Robinson is an asset the Wolver-
ines can hardly afford to lose.

KANSAS CITY - The 53-year-
old Missouri Valley Conference,,
with a history of memberships
ups and downs, is facing a familiar
problem these days-it's one down
from the 1959 loop list but worries
not one whit.
The University of Houston has
resigned effective next June, re-
ducing the circuit to seven schools
and the Conference is looking for
a football playing replacement.
