Stars Repeat Performance
Last Year by Wining Big
Track Classic


e'eping aside their competitors
eastern universities in the finals
e forty-sixth annual track and
championships of the Intercol
te Association of Amateur Ath-
of America held on Soldier's
Cambridge, Mass., last Saturday
noon, Coach Wallie Christie's
ngent of track performers wear-
he colors of the University of
ornia, ran up the overwhelming
of 40 1-2 pqints and took an easy
place. This is the second time

that the Bruin team has copped first
honors of the meet in as many years.
Princeton Second
Second honors of the meet went to
the track team representing Prince-
ton when the Orange and Black per-
formers garnered 31 points. Stan-
ford's athletes -came back strong in
the finals of the events and were third
high team when the points were dis-
tributed. They had a total of 26 1-2
points to their credit, while the dark
horse of the eastern outfits took the
fourth place when Cornell's team ran
up a total of 21 1-2 points. The Red
and Blue Pennsylvanians were fifth
place team with 16 points, and Iar-
Yard took sixth place with 14.
Two new record marks for the meetl
were set Saturday.,/ The first of these

came when Al Leconey, the fleet foot-
ed star representing Lafayette, step-
ped over the 100 yard path in 9 7-10
seconds. This mark is one-tenth of a
second faster than the old record.
Leconey's work was true to form
Saturday, and he vied favorably with
Jack Merchant for individual honors of
the meet. Leconey covered the 220
yard course in 21 3-10 seconds, which'
time is just one-tenth of a second from
the record of the meet now held by
Bernie Wefers, Sr.
New Nark in High Jump
L. T. Brown of Dartmouth set the
second record of the day when he
crossed the high jump bars at 6 feet,
4 5-8 inches, just one-eighth of an
inch betterthan all previous marks.
The old mark of 6 feet, 4 1-2 inches
was set by Wesley M. Celer, when he
cleared the bar at this distance in the
1915 meet.
Merchant Star of Meet.
Leconey's records and great dis-
plays of speed -and stamina in the
events failed to label him as the indi-
vidual star of the meet. Instead, Jack
Merchant, the Pacific coast star, camel
in for this honor when he gathered in
just 13 points by himself. His work
in the field events formed the impetus
for the California team, it is said, and!
he stood out as the leading athlete of&

pointed javelin flying 177 feet, 10 inch-
es for fourth place in that event, and
tok fourth place in the running broad
jump when he covered 22 feet, 7 1-4
inches in the pit.
His work throughout the entire
meet was probably the most scilliant
feature of the day, and a large ma-
joriy of the 15,000 sports fans who
were presnt to view the performances
of the classic, watched Merchant most
Leconey Sets Record
However, Leconey's work was ap-
preciated by the large crowd of spec-
tators and when, with a terrific bnst
of speed, he whizzed over the century
course in less than 10 seconds, he
was given a great ovation by those
present. He qualified in the prelimin-
aries on Friday when he covered the
distance in 9 4-5 seconds. This time,
while it equaled the record then stand-
ing, was' not satisfactory to the sterl-
ing sprinter and Saturday, with a
strong wind at his back, he ran the
event in record time, clipping his time
in the preliminary event by 1-10 of
a second.
At the outset of the final in this
event Eddie Sudden of Stanford and
F. K. Lovejoy of Cornell took the lead
but Leconey came through with a
sadden burst of speed, and as he cov-
ered the last 40 yards, he semed to

frlichigan Tennis Team Makes Good
Showing ,At Conference Tournament


Merchant's greatest achievement of
the meet came when he tossed the
hammer 171 feet and 2 inches. This
mark stood the onslaught of the other
athletes in this event and gave Mer-
chant first place. With a heave of 44
feet, 10 1-2 inches, this same well
developed westerner took second hon-
ors in the shot put. He sent the steel

just past the halfway sign, and held'
it in safety the remainder of the
course. Lovejoy pressed him closely
and won second in the race.

Michigan's showing in the Confer-
ence tennis championship tournament
at Chicago last Thursday, Friday and
Saturday was indeed gratifying. Al-
though none of the Wolverine rac-
quetmen succeeded in reaching the
finals in either the singles or dou-
bles, the playing of the tean as a
whole was probably equal to that of
any other at previous Big Ten tour-
neys. The team, which early predic-
tions pointed to as being weak, show-
ed surprising strength, not only on its
eastern trip where every one of the
five matches played were turned into.

Merkel, Reindel Reach Semi-finals
Capt. Charles Merkel and George
Reindel reached the semi-final round
on Friday, only to fall before Meyers
and Norton, respectively, on the fol-
lowing morning.
Nelson Meyers of Illinois won the
singles championship on Saturday aft-
ernoon by triumphing over Henry
Norton of Minnesota in the final round
by the scores of 5-7, 8-6, 6-2, 6-4. The
match was hard fought throughout,
both men being excellent back-court
players, and it was only because the
Illinois man out-witted his opponent
that he won the title.
Frankenstein and Stag of Chicago
won the doubles championship by
triming Judd and Wirthwein of Ohio
in the final round by the scores of 6-4,
6-2, 6-0.
The entire team came through the
first round of play successfully. The
second round was rather fatal to two
Michian men, Rorich and Sanchez
losing their matches at this stage of
play. kerkel scored wins over Parish
of Ohio, Pideon of Minnesota and
Frankenstein of Chicago, the last
match was close at first with Merkel
finally winning by 5-7, 9-7, 6-1 scores.
Meyers defeated him in the semi-fin-
als by the scores of 6-1, 8-6, 8-6. This
match was hard fought and Merkel
hung on until the very last point in
<n attempt to turn the tide about.
Reindel won from Kuhlman of Minne-
sota, Thompson of Northwestern and
Wirthwein of Ohio. In the match with
Wirthwein, Reindel played the best
tennis that he has yet shown this
year. Norton of Minnesota eliminated

Rain Slowed Up Meet
Rain on Thursday made it necessary
to run off almost the entire tourna-
ment on Friday and Saturday. With
32 entries in the singles and 15 teams
in the doubles, the winning contest-
ants hadto play five matches in order
to reach semi-finals in both the sin-
gles and doubles.
Merkel and Reindel lost to eph-

The Nunn-Bush Shoe

If the quality of athletes who par-
ticipate in an interscholastic meet at
a college is any indication of the
quality of the future athletes of that
college, then Chicago university is due
to have a crack assortment of stars on
their track team within the next few
In their meet held last Saturday at
Stagg field they outclassed the Michi-
gan meet in five out of seven like
events. The comparison cannot hold,
however, because of the fact that the
Chicago met was a national . one,
wereas the Michigan meet included
only prep schools within the state.
The most notable feature of the Chi-
coga meet was the breaking of the
world's Interscholastic record for the
12 pound shot put, when Hauser, of
Oxnard, California, heaved the nugget
56 feet.
The time of 10 and 2-5 seconds was
made in the century, beating the time
here by 1-5 of a second. The Michi-
gran tracksters evened this up by clip-
ping 1-5 of a second off of their time
in the 220 which was 22 and 2-5 sec-
onds. The men in the Chicago meet
proved superior in the 120 yard high
hurdles,'shotput, mile run, and in the
half mile. In the high hurdles their
time was 15 3-5 seconds, in the mile
run, 4 minutes and 35 seconds, in the
half mile, 2 minutes,1 second.
