cracked the meet and recognized
world's records off a dirt runway
in the pole vault by going over the
bar at 14 feet that was less than his
feat earlier this season but it ex-
ceeded the recognized world mark of
13 feet, 7% inches, set by Tommy
Warne of Northwestern, in 1929.
It first was announced Padway
had vaulted 14 feet, five-eighths inch,
but a later check showed the bar ex-
actly at the 14-foot mark.
Ed Smith, Wisconsin's Negro hurd-
ler, three times equaled the claimed
world mark of 7.4 seconds in the 60-
yard high hurdles, an event not gen-
erally recognized. He stepped the dis-
tance twice in qualifications in that
time and then repeated tonight to
grab first place in the finals.
A foursome of fast-stepping quar-
ter-milers from Toledo University
cracked the meet record in the col-
lege one-mile relay. They opened up
a wide space between themselves and
second-place Loyola of Chicago to win
in 3:25.4. The old mark of 3:27.2
was set by Kansas State Teachers Col-
lege of Emporia in 1935.

Michigan led the field of 28 schools
in the preliminaries by qualifying
eight men for the five final events in
which trials were held-the 60 yard
dash, 60 yard high and low hurdles,
shot put and broad jump. Big Bill'
Watson paced the Wolverines by show-
ing the best distance in the shot put
and the best leap in the broad jump.
His shot put effort was 50 feet
inches and his broad jump was 23
feet 10 inches.-
Gopher Sextet
Defeated, 4-3
Cleveland Squad Wins
N.A.A.U. Crown
NEW HAVEN, Conn., March 18.-
()-Fghting bitterly through three
periods of the tournament's best
hockey, the Cleveland American Le-
gion squad pounded the Gophers of
Minesota into submission 4 to 3 and
won the National A.A.U. champion-
ship tonight.
The Legionnaires faced odds that
would have stopped a less courageous
crew. Early in the first period the
regular goal tender, Joe DeMarco,
suffered a strained back and was
forced out of the game. Bill Fair-
weather, who didn't know he was
making the trip till an hour before
train time, went in. He turned in a
great job.
But this bad luck was offset at
mid-ice from Ken Anderson, captain
of the Gopher team that won the Big
Ten title this year.

Hutchinson Makes
Debut;_Tigers Lose
ORLANDO, Fla., March 18.-(A)-
Freddie Hutchinson, the young
mound star plucked from the Pa-
cific Coast League by the Detroit
Tigers, made his debut against a ma-
jor league club today as the Tigers,
impotent at the plate, lost to the
Washington Senators, 4 to 3, in an
exhibition game.
Detroit's prize package started on
the mound for the Tigers but gave
way for a pinch hitter in the sixth.
He yielded seven hits and two runs
during his five-inning trick, but the
Tigers were ahead when he retired
and Harry Fisenstat was charged
with the defeat.
All second semester freshmen
who are interested in trying out

The man was Russell John Light-
body, called by David L. Holmes,
Wayne University Athletic Director,j
"the finest athlete I ever coached."
Lightbody died Thursday of pneu-
monia that set in following an ap-
pendectomy. He was 38 years old.
