Tonight the track team will
have its annual pre-Christmas in-
tra-squad track meet in Yost Field
House starting at 7:15.
Every year since he took over
the -coaching reins from Ken Do-
SAE took five firsts last night
to capture the I-M swimming
crown from Phi Gamma Delta
for social fraternities.
The SAE's, besides copping
all the events, also broke the
local record in the 100-yard
medley relay. Bill Neiman, Jim'
Boylan, Mike Martin and Tom
Krause combined to swim the
event in 0:44, breaking the old
record by two seconds.
Also, Martin took the 50-
yard freestyle, while Neiman
won the 25-yard freestyle and
Boylan the 25-yard backstroke.
Mike Hiniker took the 25-
herty in 1949, Don Canham has
set up the meet in order for his
charges to have a taste of formal
competition before the holidays.
In most sports, one last bit of
work like this would not be too
enjoyable. However, i n d i c a t e d
Canham, the track team practices
so long without being under the
high tension of constant compe-
tition, that the fellows get to know
each other quite well and they
really enojy competing against
It's a morale-booster as well as
For instance, one of the feature
events, of the evening - the mile
relay - will have two roommates
running on opposing teams. Ergas
Leps will anchor the sophomore
team, while Tom Robinson will
carry the baton for the juniors.
This kind of friendly rivalry is re-
laxed but keen.
Keeping in mind that a runner
does best when relaxed, one must
realize that there is a substantial
chance that a new record might
Speaking of Tony Seth, Canham
said, "He's in good enougl shape
to set a new field house record in
the 600-yard run."
Tom Robinson - the "Bahama
Bullet" - ran a 0:06.2 60-yard
dash in this meet last year and
with speedy John Gregg and Dick
Cephas chasing him, he might
very well equal the Big Ten rec-
ord of 0:06.1.
Cephas has unofficially bettered
the field house record in the 65-
yard high hurdles in practice this
fail and is hoping for an official-
ly tabulated record time tonight.
May Break Record
Also, he has a chance of break-
ing the present varsity indoor
high jump record of 6'7% ". Ce-
phas was still clearing each height
when the event was stopped at
6'61/2" in trials last Saturday.
The rather unique 3/4-mile dis-
tance is being run to provide more
action for the many excellent
middle distance runners on the
team. Favored are Ergas Leps, a
4:13.6 miler in high school, and
Dave Martin, who was second in
the Big Ten mile last year. This
should prove to be one of the most
exciting events of the evening.

Although several of last night's=
planned attractions didn't ma-
terialize, the freshmen and senior
gymnasts repeated their intra-
squad victory of two weeks agol
over the outmanned sophomores
and juniors, this time by the
score of 621-492 in the I-M gym.
Junior flash Rich Montpetit was
the shining light of the evening
with three firsts and a second, de-
spite performing with a badly
bruised heel. He is wearing a plas-
tic cast on the injury which oc-
curred at Chicago in the Midwest
Open, Dec. 5.

west meet, Al Stall, also overcame
