Ralph Schwarzkopf, Maize and
Blue captain last year, competed in
the Millrose meet unattached, and
gained a fourth place in the two-
mile. Greg Rice, former Notre Dame
star, copped first in 9:03.6, followed
by Don Lash, ex-Indiana distance
ace, eight yards behind. Luigi Bec-
cali, 1932 Olympic champion from
Italy, finished third.
Ralph Takes Fourth
Schwarzkopf didn't, move out of
the ruck until the field was three
laps from home. Then he suddenly
moved up on the outside, climbing
from sixth place to third behind Rice,
and Joe McClusky. Ramblin' Ralph
held that spot around the board
track, but in the final lap, when the
race developed into a two-man bat-
tle between Rice and Lash, he was
caught by Beccali and had to be con-
tent with 'fourth place.
Earle Meadows, the National In-
door champion, and Ken Dillis, for-
mer teammates at Southern Californ-
ia, finished one-two in the pole vault.
Both cleared 14 feet, but Meadows
took the prize for making it on his
.first try. '
Mehl Wins Mile
In the feature Wanamaker mile
Walter Mehl, , former Wisconsin
champion, took his second straight
indoor triumph ofthe young season,
edging Les MacMitchell of N.Y.U. by
three yards in 4:13.6.
Indiana's great Campbell Kane ran
his string of indoor victories to three
straight tonight by capturing the
halfmile in the, slow time of 1.58.
The brilliant Hoosier runner hit the
tape four yards ahead of Charley
Beetham, veteran National champion,
who shaded Jim Kehoe for the sec-
ond-place spot.
Another Indiana performer, Roy
Cochran, also made it- three straight
triumphs this winter by taking the
600-yard dash in 1:12. The Big Ten
Quarter-mile title-holder made it look
easy, taking the lead from his pole
position and finishing the winner by
four yards.

Cagers, 40-36
LAFAYETTE, Ind., Feb. 1.-(AP)-
Purdue University's Boilermakers, de-
fending basketball champions in the
Western Conference, dumped In-
diana University's Hoosiers from the

Strong Tartars
Will Face Tank
SquadFeb. 19
Two days after the new semester'
begins, February 19 to be exact, by
far the best swimming meet of the,
season will be held in the Sports
Building pool when Wayne Univer-
sity's powerful natators engage Matt
Mann's Michigan crew.
Taking a back-seat only to the{
Wolverines and Yale's Eastern+
champs, Wayne is currently ranked
the third best team in the nation,
the same position they earned last
year after a meteoric rise from the
depths of mediocrity.
Last season the Tartars dropped
but two meets-one to Yale and the
other to Michigan-while walloping
Mike Peppe's Ohio State squad, be-
sides a long list of others.
This year Coach Leo Maas has
an even better squad than the '39-
'40 gang and will be without a doubt
the toughest team Matt Mann has
been able to schedule. Only Yale is
rated above the Detroit team and
they refused to meet the Wolverines.
The nucleus of Wayne's strength
rests with three men. Andy Clark,
the lad that took both the 220 and
440 yard races in the dual meet last
year, Guy Lumsden and Bill Prew
provide the Tartars with a trio of the
finest collegiate swimmers in the na-
' If things break right, and Matt
Mann has his fingers crossed, an ad-
ditional four men will be available
for competition under the Maize and
Blue. Bill Beebe, Iobson Burton,,
Dick Riedl and Jim Welsh join the
squad if eligible-though Welsh is
eligible now and is merely waiting for
the second semester before he gets
into action.
