A dark horse, Duesler of Purdue,

Bob Hume pulled up magnificently
in the last lap and nearly caught the
fading Gopher. Ernie Leonardi was
plenty tired but took fifth. The time
of 9:30.3 was the best recorded in a
midwest meet this season. Indiana's
surprising Hoosier quartet grabbed
the relay in 3:2.9 with Michigan sec-

fourth, ahead of Purdue. There
were two heats with the winning
teams compared, as to time, to decide
their place. Michigan won its heat
but the time was slower. Wolverines
were weak in field events. Segula

Wisconsin's Foster, who leaped 22

first in the high jump at 6 feet, 2

Meeting to Arrange Big Ten
Football Schedule Adjourned

CHICAGO, March 6.-VP)-After
two days of trying to arrange football
schedules to meet a curtailed travel
program and to accommodate service
teams, Western Conferehce coaches
and athletic directors arjourned to-
day with a general pattern in mind
but in agreement that finishing
touches must be worked out individ-
Announcement that admission to
games played at milita'ry stations
would be free to members of the
armed forces, prompted Major John
L. Griffith, Big Ten Athletic Commis-
sioner, to urge that as many games
as possible be played at the camps.
He told Big Ten delegates and rep-
resentatives of Marquette, Michigan
State, Notre Dame and Pittsburgh,
that Army and Navy teams were will-
ing to pay expenses of colleges for
home contests.
"But the service clubs," he added,
"also want to play some gaines away
from their camps to build up their
athletic funds. Naturally, scheduling
problems have been created-but one
thing is certain, there will be games
at service camps."
Major Griffith said the nine West-
ern Conference schools playing foot-

ball and four independents
pledged to play at least one
It military camps.



"But they are not necessarily cdn-
fined to Great Lakes, Camp Grant_
(Ill.) and the Iowa Preflight School,"
he said. "Fort Knox, Camp Custer
and other bases supporting grid
teams must be considered."
The schedule problem revolves
around non-Conference games pre-
viously contracted by Big Ten schools.
Minnesota, for instance, is slated to
play at Pitt-and this and other such
contests cannot be written off with-
out consent of both parties.
Rail restrictions raise a question
about three Notre Dame games with
Standford at Palo Alto, Calif,, and
Carnegie Tech and Southern Cali-
fornia at South Bend.
