PLIT WITH WISCONSIN:
'M' Diamondmen Take Opener, 6-4

Special to The Daily
MADISON-A four run rally in
the seventh inning gave Michigan
a 6-4 victory in the first game
of a doubleheader here yester-
day, but Wisconsin scored twice
in the last inning to win the
second game 5-4.
The split left the Wolverines
with a final Big Ten mark of
7-7. The Badgers, who beat Michi-
gan State Friday, 1-0, now stand
at three wins and four losses.
They finished their Conference
schedule with a single game at
Ohio State and a doubleheader
at Indiana next weekend.
In the first game, Michigan,
who had collected only two hits
for the -first six innings off of
Simon, punched three singles and
a double with a pair of walks to
score four times in the seventh.
They might have scored more,!
but Bob Kucher tried to score'
from first on Dick Syring's double
to the leftfield fence and was
thrown out at the plate. Kucher
entered the game in second inning
taking over for Barry Marshall
who re-injured his right leg while
fielding a ground ball.
The four-run rally gave Michi-
gan the lead for the first time
in the game. Nick Liakonis
then came on to shut out the
Badgers for the last three Innings
preserving Gordon Rinckey's first
Big Ten win of the year.

FASTEST OF THE FAST-Tom Robinson wins the 100-yard dash and appears to break the heart
of Indiana's Eddie Miles as well as the tape. Third behind Robinson and Miles was Illinois' Del

by three yards. Thanks to this
stretch battle, the first four finish-
ers were all under the Olympic
qualifying time. Atterberry, Pur-j
due's Dave Mills, and Iowa's John
Brown all completed the lap in
less than :47.6.
Kerr failed, however, to better
the Big Ten standard of :45.8 set
by world - record - holder Glenn
Davis of Ohio State.
In the half-mile, Kerr dropped
to last place with Ergas Leps of
Michigan. Michigan State's Brian
Castle and Michigan's Tony Seth
took the early lead. At the 660-
yard mark Leps advanced to fourth
and then Kerr passed him and
moved in behind Castle and Seth.
In the final 60 yards, Kerr and
teammate Ted Beastall moved
around these two and came home
in that order with Seth a few
inches behind and Leps pushing
hard for fourth.
Kerr's winning time here was
1:51.6 which was 1.6 seconds slow-
er than the Conference mark he
set in Ann Arbor last year, but
still an excellent time considering
his earlier effort in the 440.
Leps' time of 1:53.4 was excep-
tional for a runner who had com-
pleted four trips around the track
only 40 minutes before to win the
mile. In the mile, again hanging
oz the lead until the last 60 yards,
Leps kicked home past Illinois' Jim
Bowers to hit the tape in 4:12.4,
eight yards in the lead. This was
the best time of his career and
avenged his indoor defeat by Bow-
Several other Michigan competi-
tors recorded their best marks in
the pressure of the big meet. Tom
Robinson equaled his prior :09.4
clocking in the 100-yard dash at
about the same time as Steve
Williams was clearing the high
jump bar 6'7%" off the ground.
Just before this, husky Ray
Locke had shoved the shot 55'"Y2
through the air.
In the century sprint, Robinson
got a slow start and caught In-
diana's Eddie Miles but 20 yards
from the tape. In the 220, Robin-
son was the winner right from the
start. There had been some hint
of a limp in his finish in the 100
and the Michigan fans were anxi-
ous about his vulnerable left thigh.
But he quickly cancelled Miles'
outer lane lead and beat Mills and
Atterberry by five yards in :21.4.
Later he confessed that his leg
was indeed very painful and that
he'd just "gutted" the last 30 yards.
He made the supreme effort to
gain the victories he should have
had last year but for the same leg
At the high jump pit, Williams
was having his best day ever. After
passing the 5'10" height, he cleared
the next six levels in only seven
tries. When both LeRoy Johnson
and indoor champ Reggie Shepard
of Indiana missed a try at 6'4", he
leaned back easily and responded.
to questioning teammates that
"Nothing's bothering me - not
even the wind. I feel great."
He felt even better, though, after
he had cleared 6'1/4" and neither
Sheppard nor Johnson were suc-
cessful. This was the height that
his coach Don Canham won the
NCAA championship with in 1940
and the height to be marked as
the new Young Field record.
Locke had the best qualifying
throw in the shot put until Illi-
nois' Bill Brown took his last
heave. In the finals, Locke tried
too hard the first time and fouled.
But secure in the exclusive knowl-
edge of his 55'6" put in practice
last week, he sent the ball on the
winning 55'2" flight on his next
Illinois Wins Relay
As Illinois' point total went up
and the rain came down, the mile
relay teams went to the post with
the meet already decided. Start-
ing Len Cercone held Michigan
just inches behind MSU's Jim Carr
as he passed to Marsh Dickerson.
Illinois' Ed Houston followed
Dickerson into first place and gave
Del Coleman an eight, yard ad-
vantage. Michigan's third man,
Bryan Gibson, ran a spectacular
lap in overtaking Coleman and
opened up a 12 yard lead for
anchor man Seth.
But the day belonged to Kerr
and after a slow pass, he set out
to catch the tiring Seth. At the
220 mark he was only eight yards,
back, but in a finish surpassing all
others of the day, he conquered
Seth in the turn and crossed the
line seven yards ahead.
Tied at 22 Apiece
TANDING in the rain outside of Spartan Stadium was a stubby
little man with a well satisfied look on his face and a champion
ship trophy under his arm.
The man was Illinois track coach Leo Johnson whose squad had
Just run off with their third consecutive Big Ten outdoor title and
their seventh in the last 10 years. And it was the second year in a
row that Johnson's Illini had bounced back from an indoor defeat
at the hands of Don Canham's Wolverines.
"It was a terrific meet," said Johnson. "It's a shame that Bennie
McRae was unable to run today. If he would have been in there, the
outcome of the meet would have been a tossup.
A reporter asked Johnson what he thought of George Kerrs
performance. Choosing his words carefully, the Illinois coach said
"He did one hell of a job. Any time a guy can go out and run a
quarter like that--Kerr's time was
:46.1-and then come back to win
the half mile and anchor the win-
ning relay team, he is doing just
Kerr, a short well-built native
of Jamaica, also seemed happy
with his afternoon's work. He
said, "I guess I would have to
say that today was the best day
of my track career.
"I was glad the weather turned
out so well. They were predicting
rain all week and when it rained
so badly Thursday I thought the
track would be in bad shape but
Kerr looked a little tired after
his exhausting and spectacular
performances. He indicated that
he would get plenty of rest before
the Illini take a crack at the
NCAA championships in June.- . ..
After that his sights are set on
Rome where he hopes to.compete
for the Jamaican Olympic team.
Kerr said, "I am not quite sure
what I will run at Rome. I will
enter either the 400 or 800 meters
or possibly both." GEORGE KERR
Michigan Coach Don Canham . -his best ay
didn't seem to think it made any
difference which Olympic race Kerr entered. He said, "George can
win either the 400 or 800 meters, whichever one he chooses to enter"
Canham agreed with rival coach Johnson that it had been a
"terrific" meet. "There were some really fine performances on both
sides," said Canham. "I was especially proud of our sophomores,
Ray Locke, Steve Williams and Ergas Leps, all of whom took firsts.
Locke, who is finally beginning to show the potential that so
many people say he has, tossed the 16-pound shot 55'" to edge
arch-rival Bill Brown of Illinois. In high school Locke tossed the
12-pound shot over 60 feet and was rated as one of the top pros--
pects in the nation.
However, it was not until late this winter that Locke really began
to work out seriously and that work began to bear fruit yesterday.
With two years of eligibility remaining, he could become one of the
finest shot putters in Michigan history.
Another Wolverine yearling who could rewrite some Michigan
records in the next two years is Williams, who leaped 6'7%" to
annex the high jump crown.
Leps' victory in the mile was the least surprising of the three
sophomore victories. The Canadian runner has posted fine times all
season and it was only a matter of time before he won his first Big
Canham was, of course, disappointed that another. sophomore,
Bennie McRae, could not compete. The Newport News star was given
a good chance of winning both hurdle crowns, but was unableto
even attend the meet because of an injury suffered in Friday's
The day's most courageous performance, however, was put on by
sprinter Tom Robinson whose leg was also taped. After winning the
100-yard dash in the fine time of :09.4, the Bahaman speedster
limped badly off the track.
Yesterday's victory gave the Illini their 22nd Big Ten outdoor
track crown, a mark that is equalled by Michigan. This sets up a
battle for the all-time as well as the Conference crown next spring.
However, 30 minutes later, obviously bothered by pain, Robinson
was back at the blocks for the start of the 220. Off to a good start,
Robinson grabbed an early lead and then held on to win a race that
he himself didn't think he could finish.
