CHAMPAIGN, Ill., June 1-Smash-
ing one world's record and brushing
aside two Conference marks, Illi-
nois' powerful "dream team" scored
an overwhelming victory in the 46th
annual Big Ten track championships
here today, amassing 66 34 points,
more than double the 312 and 25-
point totals of Ohio State and Michi-
gan, respectively.
Despite a steady rain and a water-
soaked track, Michigan and Ohio
State both surpassed their previous
performances in a vain effort to
match the burning speed of a red-
hot Illini squad.
Leading the Buckeyes prior to the
high jump, the Wolverines saw their
margin vanish as Ohio's John Mur-
phy upset ailing Dike Eddleman of
Illinois to win this event with a leap
of 6 ft. 3 3/4 in. Warren Orendorf,
another Buckeye, gained a timely tie
with Dick Kilpatrick of Purdue for
third place. These two efforts pro-
vided the margin between second
and third in the final standings.
McKenley Wins Two Events
Herb McKenley, geared for the task
expected of him, blistered the soggy
cinders as he shaved two-tenths of
a second off the world 440 mark of
46.4. The lanky, mustachioed Ja-
maican returned later to edge his
fellow countryman, Lloyd LaBeach,
of Wisconsin, in the 220-yard dash,
in the brilliant time of 20.6, just
three-tenths of a second off Jesse
Owens' world standard.
Michigan's Val Johnson sprinted
past the highly touted Bill Mathis
)f Illinois in the same event to annex
a fourth place. Johnson's time was
21.5, his best ever.
Displaying a strong finish, Wol-

Val Johnson, Bill Haidler, Hap Cole-
man, and Hugh Short, ran the fastest

lon's 302 for a 1220 total, it gave the
Maize and Blue a convincing tri-
umph and their fourth championship
in the last five years.
Widen Lead to 17 Strokes
The shaky one-stroke lead they
held at the three-quarter mark wid-
ened as all four top men found the
range in the afternoon. Courtright
matched Schalon's 73 and Barclay
and Elliott grabbed 74's while last
year's champ, Howard Baker of Ohio
State, blew to an 80 and didn't even
figure in the Ohio scoring.
Courtright's 73 was a brilliant
comeback from the 81 he fired in
the morning. Barclay had a 76 and
Elliott a 78 in the a.m. round. Mich-
igan scores that didn't figure in the
total were Rog Kessler's 157-80-80-
317 and Bill Ramsey's 159-82-80-
321.
Rouding out the team listings
were Minnesota with a fifth place
1259, Indiana five strokes back and
Wisconsin, Purdue and Illinois bring-
ing up the rear. Chicago did not
compete this year. All squads will
get another crack at King Wolverine
later this month in the NCAA meet
at Chicago.
GOPHERS, WILDCATS SPLIT
MINNEAPOLIS, June 1-(P)-The
Minnesota and Northwestern base-
bal teams split a doubleheader today,
the Gophers winning the first 1 to
0. and the Wildcats taking the sec-
ond, 3 to 1.

verine Hugh Short, was still unable
to catch a surprising Illini, Carlh 0-
kert, and had to settle for a third
in the quarter-mile. The bespec-
tacled sprinter was timed at the tape
in 47.7.
Ed Johnson's fourth place in the
two-mile was by far the outstanding
exhibition of determination of the
entire meet. The Wolverine distance
star fought Don Washington of OSU
for the entire last lap, and was not
to be denied at the tape. Indiana's
Earl Mitchell, after a poor showing
in the mile, in which he failed to
place, captured this longer event
with a 9:52.6 performance.
Wolverine Relay Second
Michigan's mile relay quartet of

time recorded by a Wolverine four-
some since 1939, but had to settle for
an eyelash second place over Ohio.
In the meantime, Illinois romped1
over the distance in the new Con-
ference record time of 3:12.4, two and
seven-tenths seconds shy of Cali-t
fornia's world mark. Michigan's time
was 3:15.7, as compared with 3:15.8
for OSU.
Bob Rehberg of the champions was
another outstanding performer as
he ran to an excellent 4:17.3 mile vic-
tory and a follow-up 1:52.3 triumph
in the 880. Mary Whitfield of the
Buckeyes paced the field in the half,
but faltered in the face of Rehberg's
strong fininshing kick. Wolverine
Herb Barten wound up in fourth1
place behind Ohio's Bill Clifford.
Duplicating his feat of yesterday,.
Bob Thomason of the Maize andi
Blue ran the best mile of his career,
but his 4:23.7 clocking placed him-
fourth in the fast field.
Ostroot, Fonville Place in Shot
Charley Fonville and George Os-
troot, Michigan's "heavies," grabbed
second and fifth places in the shot
put while Purdue's Bill Bangert
clinched his second win of the meet
with a disappointing 50 ft. 10 in.
mar.
Hurdles' titlist George Walker of
Illinois retained both his crowns as
he essayed the highs in a smart
14.2, and later captured the lows
with an easy 23.6 decision.
Wisconsin's LaBeach, after losing
the 220 to McKenley, snatched a close
9.6 100-yard dash win from Mathis,
and with his tie for second in the
broad jump, scored 12%/2 points, to
take top individual point honors for
the meet.
Hogan Leading
Goodall Play-off
MAMARONECK, N. Y, June 1-
(M)-Ben Hogan got one bad round
out of his system this morning, and
still picked up points. He played a
tight match this afternoonraked
in another five points, and will go in-
to tomorrow's last two rounds of the
$10,000 Goodall Round-Robin 'Golf
Tournament as much a cinch as
there can be in this game to win the
$2,000 first prize.
The biggest fire cracker was set
off by Jug McSpadden, who works
for the Goodall Company, sponsor of
this annual event. The Sanford, Me.,
pro bettered all previous competitive
records for Winged Foot's famed
West Course with a brilliant seven-
under-par 65 this morning to beat
Byron Nelson 2 up and Sammy Byrd
4 up.

By The Associated Press
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., June 1--The
Faculty Committee, governing body
of the Western Conference, today
declined to take any action on selec-
tion of a tenth Conference member.
The faculty members accepted the
recommendations of the athletic dir-
ectors that no changes be made at
the present.
Michigan State had submitted a
formal application for membership
to replace Chicago, whose resigna-
tion from the League was accepted
today. Pittsburgh had merely ex-
pressed interest and asked to be
kept in mind in case of any changes.
kept in mind in case of any
changes.
Earlier in the day the Conference
football coaches had ended a dead-
lock that had extended from Thurs-
day morning on 1947 football sched-
ules. The schedule which was fin-
ally agreed gave each school three

Conference home games and three on
forcign gridirons, with the exception
of Indiana and Ohio State. Indiana
had only two Conference games at
home while Ohio State had four.
The athletic directors, meeting
in a separate session, announced
that all Conference schools but
Iowa would supposrt "B" football
teams this fall. Schiedulrs will be
drawn individually.
The Faculty Committee also shied
away from any commitments on a
rumored bid from the Pacific Coast
Conference to participate in Rose
Bowl games. While ,ome members
have indicated a desire to have the
Big Ten champion play in the New
Year's Day classic, the Conference
apparently left untouched its ban
on post-season games.
