KALAMAZOO, June 1.-Althought
Michigan did not enter a full cinder
squad because of the press of final
examinations, 12 present and former
Wolverine trackmen competed in the
Seventeenth Annual Outdoor Mich-
igan Amateur Athletic Union Track
and Field Championships here today
and accounted for six first places
and three seconds.
With its full squad consistently
scoring in 14 of the 20 events, Mich-
igan Normal ran away with the team
title, scoring 121% points. The De-
troit Police finished second, Mich-
igan third, and Michigan State
Wolverine Jack Leutritz shattered
the meet 440-yard dash record, for-
merly held by teammate Warren
Breidenbach, who chose to run the
220 today, by blazing the distance
in 48.9.
Sprinter Al Smith copped both
the dashes for the Maize and Blue,
running the 100 in 9.9 and the 220 in
21.2. Breidenbach finished third in
the century.
Michigan's regular mile relay team,
composed of Leutritz, Breidenbach,
Phil Balyeat and Bill Dobson experi-
enced little difficulty in taking its
event. The time of 3:20 smashed
the old record of 3:22.8 held by
Western State's 1938 quartet.
Wolverine varsity two-miler Bill
Ackerman stepped down from his
usual distance today to run the mile,
in which he wound up fourth. Mich-
igan's Tom Lawton , succeeded in
placing fourth in the shot put and
sixth in the discus. Dave Cushing
pulled out a two-way tie for second
place in his specialty, the pole vault.

men made an excellent showing,+

another equalled, the University of
Pittsburgh gained its second IC4A

second places, plus a third, a fourth
and a fifth, the Panthers rolled up

Sharpe Given Numerals
Phil Sharpe, '43E, of Lakewood,
0., was awarded his freshman nu-
merals at the conclusion 'of spring
football practice, Coach Wally Weber
announced yesterday. Sharpe is an
end and earned his numerals because
of improvement and progress made
during the spring drills.

capable half-miler of several years
ago, Clayton Brelsford, turned in a
very good 1:56.5 performance in win-
ning the half-mile event.
Neil McIntyre was runner-up in
the 120-yard high hurdles, and year-
ling Frank McCarthy took third in
the broad jump and a tie for third
!n the high jump.
Last year's track captain, husky
Bill Watson, had planned to com-
pete in six events in preparation for
the forthcoming National A.A.U. De-
cathlon Championships later this
month, but he arrived late and was
forced to forego all but the shot put
and broad jump events, both of
which he won easily.
