and high individual scoring honors
for the meet. Watson holds the Con-
ference record of 50 feet 10 3/8 inches
which he set in the preliminaries Fri-
The Ohio State forces accounted
for the other two Big Ten records
which went by the boards. Mel Wal-
ker, Big Ten and world title holder
in the high jump, outleaped his team-
mate Dave Albritton, coholder of the
world outdoor record, to break the 6
foot 6 inch mark by 5/8 of an inch.
The old recrd was first established
by Russell of Chicago in 1925 and
tied by Walker as he won the Big
Ten title last year.
Breaks Own Mark
Charlie Beetham, chalked up a
1:52.2 half mile to break his own
conference record of 1:52.5, which he
set last year at Columbus. Beetham
tailed the field until the second turn
when he moved up with no apparent
effort to take over the lead from Trutt
of Indiana who had led almost from
the gun. Beetham moved out aroun
the last turn, staved off a half-threat
from Trutt, and finised going away.
Trutt faded after his last effort to
pass ,Beetham and fell victim to a
stretgh drive from Squire of Ohio
State. lickle gave the Bucks three
out of a possible five places as le
finished on the heels of Trutt for
fourth spot, and Bennie Starr, sur-
viving Wolverine, pulled up from last
spot to place fifth.
Gets His First
Sam^ Stoller, Michigan's "Croon-
ing Cannonball" claimed his first
Conference sprint title as he zoomed
down the soggy cinders under forced
draft two yards ahead of his stocky
arch-rival, Bob Greive who put in a
weak bid at the 80 yard mark but
soon relapsed into second position
where he had his hands full to stave
off Bob Collier of Indiana. Greive
finished inches ahead of the Hoosier
Don Lash put on the type of per-
formance that earned him the title
of the "Indiana Iron Man" as he
brought home his daily double in the
mile and two mile and ran sixth in
the half-mile. Lash swapped the
lead back and forth with his team-
mate Jimmie Smith in the early
stages of the race. Chuck Fenske
of Wisconsin stuck tenaciously on
Lashe's heels the whole route but
was unable to match the kick of the
Hoosier distance ace.
Tie For Second
In the two mile grind, the Indiana
distance triumvirate followed their
usual strategy, Smith and Deckard
taking the lead and alternating in
first and second place while Lash laid
back among the tailenders with the
ever-present Fenske at his shoulder.
In the last lap Fenske made as if to
pass the loafing Lash, whereupon.
Lash unleashed such a burst of speed
as has heldom been seen on any
track. Starting from 50 yards back
of the leaders Lash zoomed down the
track past Smith and Deckard.
Michigan pole vaulters Hunn and
Kingsley came through to tie for sec-
ond behind Al Haller of Wisconsin.
Fred Martin's qualifying mark of 182
feet 3 inches just failed to take first
for the Wolverines as Pettigrew of
O.S.U. sailed the stick 185 feet 8
inches on his last effort of the after-
