breezed in without pressure in the
dash, while Buckeye Bob Lewis and
Norm Purucker waged a hot battle
for second place, Lewis winning in
a close finish.
Watson Misses Record
As usual, Watson out-heaved his
shot-put competitors, with a toss of
51 feet, one and a half inches. In a
feature event, which didn't count in
the score, Bill tried to break the
existing worlds' record with a 12-
pound shot. He threw it 60 feet, five
and seven-eighths inches, little more
than an inch shy of the mark.
In the quarter and half-mile events,
Michigan bowed to the Buckeyes.
Jack Sulzman put on a stretch drive
to overtake Harley Howells in the
440, with Doug Hayes giving the Wol-
verines a third when Ross Faulkner
faded from the race.
In the 880-yard battle, Dye Ho-
gan set the pace, then succumbed
to Dick Squire. His mates, Bill Bu-
chanan and Tom Jester. Squire
traveled in with a 1:57.1, as Buchan-
an displayed a finish spurt, which
couldn't quite match Squire.
Harold Davidson, Michigan's de-
pendable miler, moved ahead of Tom1
Sexton on the second lap, main-
tained his lead throughout.
Allen Ties Albritton
Dave Albritton, worlds' record hold-
er in the high jump, found Michigan's
Wes Allen, colored sophomore, able
to match his 6 feet, four and three-
quarters inch leap for a first place
tie in the event.
Jim Kingsley again made an ef-
fort to pole vault 13 feet, six inches
but failed to attain that height. His
13 feet elevation was good enough for
his customary first.
Ohio State's title-winning relay
team, which has broken Field House
marks at both Illinois and Indiana
this year, spotted Michigan a 20-
yard lead on the first leg, rallied to

jWrestling Is 'Broadening' Sport -.-
So Contends Mat Ace Danner

Harland Danner, stellar Varsity
wrestler, introduced a new angle into
the usual viewpoint toward. the mat
game when he stated in a recent in-
terview that wrestling was "very
broadening for character as well as
for personality."
And the blond, curly-headed juniorI
mat star ought to know, since he's
been out for competitive wrestling for,
more than five years now and wentI
to the Nationals last year. The most1
spectacular member of the Wolver-
ine squad, he is a great favorite with
the fans at every meet because of
his unorthodox antics.
He probably knows less scientific
wrestling than many of his oppon-
ents, but his speed, strength, elusive-
ness and daring usually tell the tale
in the end. He's always willing to
Wins All Matches
Ru'ner-up in the conference meet
last year in the 165-pound class, he
has moved down a notch this year to
take ex-captain Bissell's place and so
far is undefeated at 155-pounds
having won all but two matches by
In contrast to the general run of
athletes and to his own teammates
in particular, who had the hardest
time of all Varsity teams in escap-
ing the eligibility bugaboo, the 22
year old grappler has a scholastic
record which even a Phi Bete would
not sneeze at.
Majoring in Romance Languages,
he says that he will be through with
wrestling after he gets his A.B. and
plans to go into graduate work and
higher education. He became in-

terested in Spanish through a trip to
Mexico two years ago and at present
uses any spare time he can find to
make a study of social customs in
Mexico. And he claims that the sen-
oritas there are all that they're
cracked up to be.
Lacks Pro Features
Good-looking and with features
that a movie star would be proud of
he definitely disproves the popular
idea that all college. wrestlers look
like Man Mountain Dean, gesticulate
like Ali Baba and talk like Lord Pat-
rick Landsdowne Finnegan. A home
town boy, he took up wrestling at
Ann Arbor High, where he was also
a guard on the football team and a
star gymnast as well.
When asked his greatest agmbition,
with a far away look in his eyes, he
dreamily answered "that it was to
