Lanky Dave Albritton, great
Negro high jumper, bettered his
own record last night at the Yost
Fief House when he jumped 6
feet 5% inches to add one inch to
his mark of last year. Albritton,
the present world titleholder in this
event, took one of the two first

Rosemont Cops
$100,000 Purse
At Santa Anita
27- P - Rosemont the favorite,
captured the third running of. the
$100,000 Santa Anita handicap to-
day in a brilliant chapter of Ameri-
can turf history.
Records fell behind as the Fox-
catcher Farm's big bay champion
thundered under the wire to win
from C. S. Howard's sensational Sea-
biscuit in a finish so close it took a
photograph to decide the winner.
Major Austin C. Taylor's Indian
Broom was third, and the Canadian!
sportsman's other candidate, Special
Agent, ran fourth in the field of 18
A record breaking crowd of more
than 50,000 crammed Santa Anita's
famed racing plant for the day's fes-
tivities, spending more than $1,000,-
000 through the betting mills during,
the day and $396,553 on the feature
race alone.
Jockey Harry Richards brought
Rosemont from behind as they
neared the far turn, and with Sea-
biscuit, Special Agent, Indian Broom
and a Gallant Don Robert battling
gamely, literally lunged down the
track to win.
The balance of the field finished
in this order : Time Supply, Don Ro-
berto, Red Rain, Grand Manitou,
Goldseeker, Watersplash, Goldeneye,)
Chanceview, Mr. Bones, Star Sha-
dow, Accolade, Rushaway, Boxthorn!
and Sablin.!

Before a crowd that completely
filled the Varsity natatorium a tired
crew of Michigan swimmers defeated
the Minnesota tank team last night
by a score of 49-35. The Wolverines
captured all but one first place from
the Gophers.
Coach Matt Mann reversed the or-
der of the events in order to send a
fresh team in quest of new collegiate
records in the 400, 500 and 600-yard
relays. In this event, the first on the
program, the Varsity showed the fa-
tigue resulting from the long trip
home from Iowa City Friday night
and was unable to beat the record
times set by Yale on Friday.
Mann Promises Mark
Walt Tomski, Tom Haynie, Bob
Mowerson, Ed Kirar, Baker Bryant,
and Bill Farnsworth swam in the
combined relays. Mann promised
.the fans however, that the sextet
would not disappoint them the next
time a record attempt is made.
Michigan handed the Gopher
tankers their only first on a platter,
so to speak. Ben Grady, one of Mich-
igan s All-American divers last year
was not entered in the event. Mann
kept him.out of the diving in favor of
Hanley 'Staley, a new member of the
Varsity mermen. Leonard Klun with
318. points took the honors in the
event, with Phil Haughey of the
Varsity and Martig of Minesota tak-
ing second and third respectively.
Barnard Wins
Co-captain Frank Barnard, Michi-
gan's lone entry in the 220-yard free-i
style won the event but was followed
closely . all the way by Elling and
Philip of the Minnesota squad. Bar-
nard crossed the line with a time of
The 50-yard free-style was prob-
ably the most hotly contested event
of the evening. Ed Kirar, who had
clipped off a fast leg in the relay less
than a half-hour previously, turned
on the steam to defeat Rex Hudson,,
up until last night undefeated for
the year, with a good time of 23.6.
Walt Tomski,, sophomore sprint
star, again humbled Hudson to lead
him to the finish in the century dash.
Hudson swam hard but was unable
to overtake the fleet Wolverine.
Baker Bryant of the Varsity took a
third in the event.
Cody Beats Brandt
Lyman Brandt, another Gopher
boasting a clean record for the sea-
son, fell before the powerful back-
stroke of Fred Cody and was only
able to place second in the 150-yard
event. Michigan's Robinson placed
Tom Haynie. who set new colle-
giate records at Iowa Friday night
for the 220 and 440-yard swims,
gained first easily against the Goph--
ers last night. Tiring in the long
quarter-mile grind, he swam the dis-
tance in a time that was 19 seconds
slower than his record-breaking per-
formance against the Hawkeyes.
Bob Sauer, Jack Kasley and Bob
Mowerson copped first in the 300-
yard medley relay for Michigan.
Sauer followed Brandt by ' several
yards at the end of the first leg of
the race but Kasley easily overcame

Cold, Withdraws
NEW YORK, Feb. 27.--(P)-Un-
corking a whirlwind sprint in the
stretch, Archie San Romani of Em-
poria, Kansas, Teachers College, cap-
tured the classic 1,500 meters cham-
pionship run in the National A.A.U.
Track and Field title meet tonight on
the Madison. Square Garden boards.
San Romani rushed past Luigi Bec-
cali of Italy and Gene Venzke of the
New York A.C. to win in 3:51.2.
San Romani made his first triumph
of the Eastern indoor season a thriller
as he came up with a terrific "kick"
from third place to beat Beccali by
two yards and Venzke by three in a
six-man field that was minus the
great Glenn Cunningham, king of
the American milers.
Cunninghambecause of a cold,
withdrew on short notice, bhus losing
a chance to turn the tables on his
conqueror of a year ago, Venzke, in
the same event.
Venzke, who holds the world's in-
door record of 3:49.9 for the "metric
mile," looked like a winner as he took
command, two laps from home, with
Beccali, San Romani, and Indiana's
Don Lash trailing in that order. Gene
fought off Beccali's challenge, going
into the last turn, but was unable to
stand additional pressure from both
Beccali and San Romani in a 50-me-
ter stretch drive.

EVANSTON, Ill., Feb. 27.-(A)-
The University of Chicago's basket-

straight Big Ten defeat tonight, los-
ing to Northwestern, 34 to 27, at Pat-
ten Gym before 4,000. The Maroons
have yet to win a Conference game.
In winning its fourth Big Ten,
game, Northwestern took a ten point

maintained that margin throughout.

Varsity Wild
But luck can't be said to be the
only feature responsible for the
Bucks' big lead. The Varsity'
handled the ball a bit haphazardly
and failed to guard the Ohio State
team close as the Buckeyes screen
offense gave them plenty of time on
long shots.
State tried to rush Michigan in
the back court as usual, but failed
to bother either Ed Thomas, Herm
Fishman, or Bill Barclay to any ap-
preciable degree.
In the second half the Columbus
team continued to hit its longs, but
finally after about four minutes of
play and the score standing 22 to 11,
the Michigan offense began to click
as Townsend and Gee began to hit
with plenty of help from Thomas,
Fishman and Patanelli.
Defense Tightens
The Michigan defense didn't give
-any short shots in the second half
and it couldn't hit its longs.
