Dodds Breaks
World's Record
FaOr Indoor Mile
NEW YORK, March 11.-(L)--Gil
Dodds, Boston's self-punishing pas-
tor, broke the listed world record for
the indoor competitive mile tonight
by running the distance in 4:07.3 at
the Knights of Columbus games at
Madison Square Garden.
The new time is one-tenth of a
second below the mark which Glenn
Cunningham set in 1938 at the same
meet and later was equalled by Les-
lie MacMitchell and Chuck Fenske.
However, Cunningham once travel-
ed a mile in 4:04.4 on the huge plank
oval at Dartmouth. The mark is
not generally recognized because it
requires only five and a half laps
to the mile in contrast to the 11 laps
in the Garden.

the first lap. Ufer's winning time
of 4:49.3 was one and two tenths of
a second off his own American rec-
ord. Dick Forrestel, a late Michigan
entry, finished fourth.
Buddy Young, the sensational flash
from Illinois, won the 60-yard dash
as was expected, but was one-tenth
of a second off the American indoor
record. The Wolverines qualified
three of the six finalists, and Julian
Witherspoon, the freshman comet,
snared the second place honors, be-
ing followed by Bob Thomas of Illi-
nois. Bob Harvey from Purdue and

mer football star. Jack Martin came
through the afternoon preliminaries,
but was eliminated in the semi-finals,
Winning time was 6.2.
Bob Huime Defeats Ross
Bob Hume nosed out his twin
brother, Ross, by a yard, to take over
the Conference indoor mile crown
which the latter was defending this
year. Michigan grabbed first, sec-

ond and third place 'honors, when
Dick Barnard finished strong by ov-
ertaking Jack Exler of Purdue who
had led at one time by 100 yards. The
Hume twins overcame this lead on
the sixth lap to finish one-two.
Swanson Takes High Hurdles
Burly Elmer Swanson copped the
70-yard high hurdle title by breaking
the tape in :08.9. Bob Hinkle, the
crack hurdler from Illinois, came in
second and was an easy four yards
behind. No other .Michigan men
qualified for the final heat.
Nelson Klaus of Purdue heaved the
weight 48'3" to garner first place in
the shot put. George Kraeger, star
lineman last fall came in third with
a toss of 45'4". Last spring, he came
in second in the Conference Outdoor

With a leap of 23'4%2". Elroy Hirsch,
Michigan's most versatile athlete,
finished behind him, in his second

high jumper, shared the first place

Tankers Hope To Cop National Title

Michigan's swimming team will be
represented in the National Collegi-
ates that are to be held at Yale
March 18, and after taking the Big
Ten title away from Ohio State ear-
lier this year, they will be gunning
to dethrone the scarlet and gray
squad as national champs.
Coach Matt Mann's charges have
been weakened considerably as many
members of his team were in one
of the Navy programs and were'
transferred at the end of last semes-
ter. Those who have remained will
not get to make the trip as it will
take longer than the 48-hour leave
accorded to Navy personnel, and
Matt's hopeful squad will be entirely
composed of civilians.
The Maize and Blue will have only
six men with them, in contrast to
previous years, when they had at
least 16. Merton Church, and Chuck
Fries, ace sprinters, John McCarthy,
Bill Kogen and Gordon Pulford will
make the trip for the Wolverines.
"Also, this will be the first time

in Michigan history that we have other schools sending only their top

beat Tiger Call when the flying
youngster bore out turning into the

outer rail.

SUNRAY, MARCH 12, 1944

started last week at the
University. But it brought
few drastic changes .. .
Enrollment figures showed
an 11 per cent decrease
from the fall term enroll-
ment with almost 4,900
civilian students registered.
Women will apparently
still rule the campus for
over two-thirds of the civ-
ilians are women. Of these
2,195 are enrolled in the
literary school and 23 in
the engineering school. Of
the few civilian men en-
rolled 463 are in the lit-
erary school and 521 are
in the engineering school.
The figures are, of course,
incomplete because of late
registration. Nor do they
include 2,239 Army train-
ees, 1,030 in the V-12 Navy
program and 211 in the
V-12 Marine program.
With the inclusion of the
military personnel on cam-
pus the total University
enrollment is brought up
to about 8,400 students.

in love. As is often the
case, there was a great deal
of disagreement as to the
merits and faults of the
production. Most, how-
ever, agreed that it fell far
short of the Co. A show
"Nips in the Bud," which
was given last year. The
colonel was quite evidently
a copy of Groucho Marx,
handled his cigar in the
proper fashion and got the
laughs. Many thought the
script was well written, al-
though William Kehoe,
Daily drama critic, said,
"Company C set out last
night to bite the hand
which feeds its. In other
words, 'Bidin' Our Time,'
Company C's own musical
comedy, aims its barbs di-
rectly at the ASTP. The
barbs, however, are not too
piercing, for Cpl. fly Wol-
otsky's book anounts to
little more than an ad-
olescent imitation of Bob
Hope." As for production
and direction Kehoe said it
"was just about as pro-
fessional as last year's

C hic

nual President's Report to
the University, recently re-
leased. He termed it a
"realistic cosmopolitanism
which will aid the peoples
of other countries to ap-
preciate through precept
and example the benefits
of individual freedom and
the evils of totalitarian-
ism." He said that "to
achieve this goal will mean
among other things revi-
sion of courses and cir-
ricula in the social sciences,
a new emphasis upon stu-
dent counseling, the prep-
aration of an effective pro-
gram of adult education,
the bringing of more for-
eign students to the cam-
us and the loaning of our
instructors to selected col-
leges and universities in
every country in the world,
where higher education is
encouraged." Many who
read the report considered
this a hopeful sign for post-
war education and hoped
it would be carried oL.
