Michigan took firsts in 13 out of
the 15 events, scoring slams in the
mile, half mile, and two mile runs,
and won the mile relay.
Only in the 220-yard dash and the
high jump could the Illini outscore
the visitors. They took all three
places in the latter with Lowell Spur-
geon winning with a lead of six feet
even and Bob Ashley nosed out Bob
Grieve with Allan Smith of Michigan
taking third in the 220. Ashley's
time was 21.9.
The Wolverines showed their usual,
strength in the field events with Big
Bill Watson taking firsts in the
weights, Sam Stoller winning the
broad jump, and Fred Martin the
Watson, Stoller, and Bob Osgood
tied for scoring honors with two firsts
apiece. None of the trio had much
competition with the exception of
Stoller who was pushed to a near,
record time of 9.6 seconds in the 100-
yard dash by his arch-rival, Bobby
Grieve, in the feature race of the
afternoon. The time was a new meet
and field record.
Jack Robinson, star Illini hurdler
who beat Osgood indoors, was out
with a sprained ankle and left the
Michigan captain in a class by him-
self in high and low hurdles.
One of the best races of the after-
noon from the standpoint of time was
the half-mile which Clayt Brelsford
won in 1:54.6, a new meet record, de-
spite the fact that no Illinois runner
even finished in the money.
