LAFAYETTE, Ind., March 23 -
Cashing in on their strength in the
relay events, Michigan's trackmen
turned in the season's biggest track
upset by taking the Purdue Relays
crown here tonight.
Capturing the distance and sprint
medley relays and gathering seconds
in the two-mile and mile relays, the
Wolverine thinclads amassed 20 of
their 37 1/3 points in the team races
to upset Illinois' favored squad. The
Illini finished second with 3212 points
followed by Purdue with 20 2/3 and
Notre Dame with 19.
Sprint Medley Decides Meet
Not until the next to the last event
on the card was the decision certain.
Then, with HughtShort, Val Johnson,
Jim Pierce and Herb Barton clicking
to perfection the Maize and Blue
copped the sprint medley relay.
With the sprint medley in the bag
the Maize and Blue trackmen had
only to salvage two points in the one-
mile relay, final event on the pro-
gram, to take the title. Illinois took
the mile event as expected, breaking
the Relays mark but Michigan's sec-
ond place was all it needed.
Humes Wind Up Careers
Ross and Bob Hume wound up their
collegiate track careers in a blaze of
glory, running third and fourth legs
on the victorious distance medley re-
lay team. Both turned in their best
efforts of the season.
Chuck Fonville broke the Purdue
Relays freshman record for shot-put-
ters with a heave of 5 feet 5/8 inches
for second place to Purdue's Bill Ban-
gert. Bangert's winning toss of 54
feet 7 5/8 inches erased the old mark
set by Notre Dame's Jim Delaney in
1943. George Ostroot of Michigan
took third in the shot tossing it 48
feet 312 inches for the best mark of

0n Extra Tall Players
NEW YORK, March 23-(A)--
Members of the National Basketball
Coaches' Association recommended
only three minor changes in the
present rules today and concluded
their annual convention without an
official request for new legislation
to place a further check on extra tall
When the National Rules Com-
mittee meets here Monday to work
over the regulations for the 1946-47

be 'presented to it by the Coaches'
1. Redefine the phrase, "in the act
of shooting," in the rule covering a
foull commiitted against a player try-
inm for a field goal, in order to give
the shooter more leeway and thus
prevent so many goals being disal-
2. Allow an offensive team to re-
Sain possession of the ball after a
free throw attempt when a player is
fouled in the last two minutes of a

,titutions in the last four minutes
of a game only when time has been
Others Rejected by Coaches
In a surprise move, the Associa-
(ion turned down all proposals to
widen the free throw lane or enlarge
the present three-second area in or-
der to push the giants of the game
back from the goal, although discus-
sions of the previous day had indi-
cated such legislation was desired.
