very first jump of the afternoon,
Paul Foreman leaped 24' 3%", and
that mark stood up through the
46 jumps taken by 12 entrants in
the event.
This jump on a sunny day was
almost three inches short of that
registered by Michigan's ° Lou

son, declined his 'last chance to
jump and settled for a third with
a leap of 23' 4 1/2'
Finishing ,second was Illinois'
Del Coleman at 23' 9% ". Fourth
was Michigan State's Soloman
Akpata, and Michigan's Jack
Steffes, who missed scoring in
last year's event by one place,
pulled down the final point.
Defends Crown
In the only other final to be
,run off, Ohio State's Larry Schn-
alenberger successfully defended
his discus crown with a heave of
162' 81/", some two- feet seven
inches better than his effort last
year in Ann Arbor.
The two heats of the 440-yard
dash gave Wolverine fans an idea
of what was to come. In a star-
studded field, the Wolverines
failed to place a man while Illi-
nois' speedster George Kerr ran
away with his heat in a time of
In the second heat, Michigan
State's Willie Atterberry came
within two-tenths of a second of

tying his own field record as he
registered a :47.6 quarter.
In a fast 100-yard dash heat,
Michigan's Tom Robinson regist-
ered a first and John Gregg a
fourth as all four qualifiers did
the century in less than 10 sec-
onds. Robinson's time was :09.7
and Gregg's was :09.9. Michigan
picked up another dash qualifier
in the second heat as Dick Cep-
has hung on for a fourth.
The first heat of the 120-yard
high hurdles saw Russ Pederson
of Minnesota take an easy first,
but, all the excitement came in
the second heat.
Here Michigan's MaRae literally
ran away from the field as he
dashed to a :14.0 time.
.Wind High
His time would have been better
than the field record and would
have tied the Conference mark,
if it hadn't been for the wind. The
wind speed was two miles per
hour over the allowed 4.7 mph..
Lovell Rogers of. Ohio State
bested Ted Beastall of Illinois in
the first heat of_ the; 880 while
Michigan's Earl Deardorff, who
had been an early pace setter,
settled for a third. In the second
heat the Wolverines picked up
another qualifier as Fred Montour
ran second to Michigan State's-
Brian Castle.
Run On Curve
Because it is an Olympic year,
the 220-yard dash was run on a
curve to prepare trackmen for the
Olympiad. Michigan's only quali-
fier was Robinson who repeated
his century win with a victory in
the first heat.
-Today's 220 shapes up as a dual
between Robinson and Michigan
State's Atterberry. Both won their
heats with identical :21.7 times.
Chalfant Disqualified
A disqualification to Michigan's.
Don Chalfant in' his heat of the
220-yard low hurdles left the
Wolverines with but one qualifier
there. Cephas took his heat in a
:24.5 and will have to face Illi-.
nois' Coleman today in the finals.
Coleman won his heat in :24.2.

OUT OF ACTION?-Bennie McRae, Michigan's ace hurdler, was injured today after tying a Big Ten
record in the qualifying round in the 120-yd. high hurdles, although it will not be considered because
of a high wind. When he returned to compete in the 220-yd. low hurdles, he injured his back and
had to be helped of the field.
3M' Nine Loses to Wildcats, 3-2

Michigan's John Wiley, Jim
Tenney and Bruce MacDonald will
meet Northwestern men head oh

along with the doubles, will prob-
ably decide the outcome -of the
Vogt, a Senior who played in
1958 and sat out 1959, racked up
Wisconsin's Lon Ruevisili 4-6, 8-1,
6-1. A last minute replacement for
slumping Ken Mike, and in com-
petition for the first time this sea-
son, Vogt was slow getting started,
then, sticking to the base line, he
befuddled Ruevisili, who likes to
rush the net, with a series of pass-
ing shots which left Ruevisili
stranded at the net.
Later, Vogt beat Ken Desmond
of Minnesota 6-2, 6-3. In the finals
he will face a tough opponent in
Michigan State's Ron Mescall, who
was seeded second.
Fulton, who makes. a career out
bf comning from behind to- win, did
it again against top seeded Mes-
sick. Messick won the first -set and
had match point in the second.
If .Messick" had won, the: score
would be 35 all instead of, 38-32.
Earlier, Fulton had finished his
match with Ray Radosovich of
Minnesota, winning 6-3, 1-, 7-5,
and had taken Tony Brown of
Wisconsin 6-3, 6-1.
Dubie, who had won over Joe
Epkins of Illinois 6-3, 64, before
bowing to Konicki, was bothered
by a sore shoulder which made
him serve at almost half speed.
Against Epkins, Dubie scored
with brilliant trap shots which
threw his opponent off balance to
set up a kill on the next shot.
Against Konicki, the drop's were
just as fine-only Konicki recov-
ered too quickly to be put away
like Epkins.
Wiley tangled with Northwest-
ern's Steve Hibben in number

EVANSTON - Sophomore Tom
Metcalf pitched and batted North-
western to a three to two victory
over Michigan yesterday.
The loss dropped the Wolver-
ines to an even 6-6 mark in con-
ference play.
The slim right hander who was
superb in the cold Lake Michigan
wind, scattered six hits in going
the route for his second Big Ten
win of the year. It ran his season
record to six and one.
Metcalf won his own game in
the last half of the ninth with a
long single to left off Bob Mar-

Nicklaus, the burly belter, fired
a pair of 69s for a four-under-par
total of 138 and an four-stroke
lead over defending champion
Jon Konsek of Purdue.
Michigan's Joe Brisson is tied
with Bob Black of Purdue with
144, two strokes behind Konsek.
Nicklaus, the current National
Amateur titleholder, pla'ted bril-
liantly throughout the day. He
faltered only once when he drove
into the woods on the fourth hole
of the morning round and took a
double bogey six.
However, eight birdies made up
for whatever shortcomings Nick-
laus had and placed him ahead
of Konsek, who soared to a 74 in-

the field with a 68 in the, opening
Brisson, a victim of bad luck,
played extremely well after a
rough first nine. Scheduled to play
with Konsek and Indiana's Tomn
Coble, Brisson was not awakened
by the telephone operator at the
motel where the team is staying
and only a hurried call by Coach

Bert Katzenmeyer brought him to
the tee before his group was
scheduled to tee off.

on the first" five holes, parring
them all. However, his putting

put Brisson three over par at the
turn, but a sensational 33 on the

His steady 74 in the afternoon
gave him a share of third place
and the right to play in a three-
some with Nicklaus and, Konsek.
The rest of the Wolverine crew,
however, was unable to match
Brisson's effort. Dick Youngberg
turned in the day's most disap-
pointing total with scores of 82-
86 168. This total gave Young-
berg, who ,tied for tenth last year
in the Conference, the dubious
distinction of being high man in
the field.
Captain Larry Markman had

All other member schools voted

the clause remains, and any Con-

now do- so if they wish.
With little ado the faculty rep-

was little question that this mo-

would be rejected.

Last week we discussed England, the first stop on the tour of
Europe that every American college student is. going to make
this summer. Today we will discuss your next stop, France--or
the Pearl of the Pacific, as it is generally called.
To get -from England to France, one greases one's body and
swims the English Channel. Similarly, to get from France to
Spain, one greases one's body and slides down the Pyrenees.
As you tan see, the most important single item to take to Europe
is a valise full of grease.
No, I am wrong. The mast important single item to take to
Europe is a valise full of Marlboro Cigarettes. Oh, what a piece
of work is Marlboro! If you think flavor went out when filters
came in, treat yourself to a Marlboro. The filter works perfectly,
and yet you get the full, zestful, edifying taste of the choice
tobaccos that precede the filter. This remarkable feat of eigarette
engineering was achieved by Marlboro's research team-Fred
Softpack and Walter Fliptop-and I, for one, am grateful.
But I digress. We were speaking of France-or the Serpent of
the Nile, as it is popularly termed.
First let us briefly sum up the history of France. The nation
was discovered in 1492 by Madame Guillotine. There followed
a series of costly wars with: Schleswig-Holstein, the Cleveland
Indians, and Captain Dreyfus. Stability finally came to this
troubled land with the coronation of Marshal Foch, who
married Lorraine Alsace and had three children: Flopsy, Mopsy,
and Charlemagne. This later became known as the Petit Trianon.

Marshal Foch-or the Boy Orator of the Platte, as he was
affectionately called-was succeeded by Napoleon who intro-
duced shortness to France. Until Napoleon, the French were the
tallest nation in Europe. After Napoleon, most Frenchmen were
able to walk comfortably under card tables. This later became
known as the Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Napoleon was finally exiled to Elba where he made the
famous statement, "Able was I ere Isaw Elba," which reads
the same whether you spell it forwards or backwards. You can
also spell Marlboro backwards-Oroblram. Do not, however,
try to smoke Marllboro backwards because that undoes all the
efficacy of the great Marlboro filter.
After Napoleon's death the French people fell into a great
depression, known as the Louisiana Purchase. For over a cen-
tury everybody sat, around moping and refusing his food. This
torpor was not lifted until Eiffel built his famous tower, which
made everybody giggle so hard that today France is the gayest
country in all Europe.
