Lomont Wins Half Mile
The biggest upset of the day, and
the deciding factor of the meet, came
in the 880 yard run, where Cornell,
favored to score at least five points in
this event, cut down without a point,
while Lomont, Beals, and Pfluke fin-
ished in that order to add nine points
to the Michigan total.
Northrop, Michigan captain, and
Reed of Cornell engaged in an inter-
esting dual in thepole vault, but nei-
ther could clear the bar past 12 feet
6 inches. Prout, Northrop's team-
mate, tied for third with Williams,
Cornell's remaining entry. In the
high jump, however, N>rthrop was un-
able to hit his stride, and failed three
times at 5 feet 10 inches. Waldo, his
teammate, turned in a fine perform-
ance, clearing the bar at this height
to tie with Berry and Vollmer, Cornell,
for first honors, giving Michigan three
of the nine points.
Lovette Places Second
Jack Lovette, shot putter, made a'
mark of 44 feet 8 1-8 inches in his
event for a second place. Murray,
Cornell, placed third, giving his team
a six point total for this contest.
The relay proved to be a close race,
with Cornell winning by, a few feet
only. Leonard, Michigan's leadoff
man, gained seven yards on Mitchell,
running first for Cornell, before he

UR LBANA, 111.. March 26.-Michigan won its first Big Ten swim-
m1ing chalmpionship and scored the most number of points ever made
in a Conference meet, when it swamped Minnesota, its closest rival,
and seven otier foes in a record breaking meet in the new gymnasium
here today. M ichigani scored 49 points, 16 ahead of the Gophers, who
had an easy tine taking second place. Northwestern finished third with
14 points and Wisconsin fourth with 9, while Chicago and Illinois
tied for fifth place with six points each.
Paul Samson, Matt Mann's giant Wolverine who established two new
national collegiate records in the 220 and 440 free style swims in the pre-
liminaries hield here last night, broke his own mark in the 220 and came
within three seconds of tieing Johnny Weissmueller's American record of
2:15,2 established in 1925. Samson was content to swim an easy 440 and
allow his record of yesterday to stand.
Michigan created six of the. seven new records established in the cham-
pionship meet today and the preliminaries yesterday, while two of the
marks are likewise national collegiate
