Natators Completely Outclass Pennsylvania, 41-23


Sophs Capture
Interclass Tilt
From Seniors
McCarthy Tops Individual
Scoring With 15 Points
In Indoor Track Meet-
A cheeky crew of sophomore track-
men thoroughly convinced the sen-
iors and juniors that their arrogant
boast of class supremacy was no
idle threat as they piled up 43 im-
pressive points to capture the inter-
class indoor cinder crown at the
Field House yesterday.
The seniors chalked up 38 points
for the runnerup berth and the jun-
iors trailed with 29.
- Holding a 20-13 lead after Friday's
field events, Coach Ken Dbherty's
second-year trackmen, spearhead-
ed iy Frank McCarthy, Neil Mac-
Intyre and Herb Leake, withstood
the seniors' last desperate bid for
the lead and in the final two events
pulled away from a 34-34 deadlock
to win.
Ufer Out With Injury
Furthermore the entire feat was
carried through by the confident
sophomore outfit without the serv-
ices of its brilliant dashman, Blaz-
ing Bob Ufer, who was urging on
his mates From the sidelines" with a
slight ankle injury. But balancing
the scales on this count, tle seniors
claimed, was the absence of Big Ten
quarter mile champion Warren
Breidenbach, who also did not com-
It was lanky McCarthy, making
his fine versatility pay dividends, who
contributed 15 points to the soph
cause and walked off with meet
scoring honors. Having tallied-. eight
Friday on his first in the broad
jump and second to Capt. Don Can-
ham in the high jump, the promis-
ng second-year man added another
first place in the 65-yard low hurdles
and a third in the highs.
A pair of seniors, Jack Leutritz and
Bob Barnard, turned in scintillating
early-season performances in the
440-yard dash, finishing in a dead-
heat in 50.5. Barnard came up fast
after the last turn and with a final
lunge snapped the tape simultaneous-
ly with Leutritz. Juniors Al Thom-
as and Bill Dobson finished second
and third respectively.
Ackerman Wins Mile
In the mile run Long-striding Bill
Ackermnen clipped a tenth of a sec-
ond off his last week's mark to win
in the very creditable time of 4:19.9.
Senior Karl Wisner was runnerup
with 4:22.9, while soph Dave Mat-
thews beat out junior John McKean
for third.
With a driving finish Leake bare-
y nosed out junior Johnny Kautz by
two-tenths of a second in 2:00.4.

Forward Bob Fitzgerald's fine
play sparked his teammates to vic-
tory last night, in the 36-16 drub-
bing the Wolverines handed the
Ypsi quintet. The lanky junior
tallied eleven points to tie with'
guard Mike Sofiak for high-scor-
ing honors of the evening.
Picking up third place points for the
sophomore cause, Buck Dawson beat
out senior Jack Dobson.
In a blanket finish senior letter-
man Jeff Hall edged MacIntyre and
McCarty by scant inches to take. the
high hurdle event in 8.5. Another
soph, Bud Byerly, finished fourth.
Trailing McCarthy in the low bar-
rier event was Hall, and again it
was a matter of mere fractions of
inches separating the two.
Speedster Bud Piel added five jun-
ior points with a 6.5 seconds effort
in the 60-yard dash, narrowly beat-
ing out senior Bill Harnist and soph-
omore Chuck Donahey, second and
third in that order. Jack Keller,
junior dashman, was a couple steps
behind for fourth.
