en's National Junior 100-yard
breast stroke mark when Miss
Carol Pence of the St. Louis, Mo.,
YWCA pushed her to a 1:18.3 in
the race for the National Junior
championship, decided when Miss

Two of the Tiger hits were

tack in spring play has netted
only 20 hits in the last four days.
and the loss today was the Tigers;
third straight.
The only solid blow by a Ben-
gal hitter was Pat Mullin's triple
to right center in the ninth. Eddie
Lake got a pair of Texas League
singles and Eddie Mayo one of
the same. Dick Wakefield's day at
the plate was doleful. He struck
out once, grounded to the mount.,

special To The Daily
LAFAYETTE, Ind., March 22-
Defending champion Michigan
captured two relay firsts and
Wolverine shot putter Charley
Fonville won his specialty, but
Illinois took home the university
team title in the fifth annual
Purdue Relays here tonight, scor-
ing 46IV points to 31 3/13 for the
Maize and Blue, who finished sec-
Two American indoor rec-
ords were cracked and one tied
when Harrison Dillard, Bald-
win-Wallacehurdling ace wha
lead his team to the college
team title over Michigan Nor-
mal, won the lows in 6.8 sec-
onds, a tenth under the old
mark. Earlier in the high hur-
die preliminaries, he tied the 7.4
second record.. The distance
medley of Illinois set the other
mark at 10:08.3, two seconds
better than Indiana's 1940 time.
The Wolverines started off in
the right way by winning the two-
mile relay in 7:51.6, whipping
Drake University by eight yards.
Teaze captain Charley Birdsall
who led off for Michigan, was last
in the first lap but brought home
a lead to George Vetter, Birdsall
running his leg in 1:59.4.
Vetter dropped back to fourth,
but he too sprinted into the lead
at the end of his leg, giving the
baton to Chuck Low after running
1:58.9. Low's 1:58.5 leg could not
match Bill Mack of Drake and
Big Nine 880-yard champ Herb
Barten started off with a 15-yard
deficit. Opening with his well-
known kick in the last lap, Barten
went on to win, and was timed in
1:54.3 for his anchor leg.
Conference champion Chuck
Fonville again asserted his dom-
inance over Norm Wasser of
Illinois, tossing the iron sphere
53 ft. 6 in. on his last throw to
beat the Illini by almost half a
foot. Since the first prize was
a radio, Fonville was able to
add a little variety to his first
place prizes this year.
The Wolverine team of Vetter
in the half-mile, Mel Detweiler on
the "440" leg, Low running the
.-mile, and Birdsall on the an-
chor mile came back an hour lat-
er to take fourth in the distance
medley while the Illini were set-
ting their record.
Michigan then tooktheir sec-
ond relay victory of the eve-
ning in the sprint medley. Bar-
ten came back to put on a fine
duel with Indiana's great Earl
Mitchell in the anchor half-
hile, the Wolverine winning by

several yards behind.
Dick Forrestel ran the firstJleg
for Michigan, a three-lap jaunt
totaling 528 yards. He was fol-
lowed by Val Johnson and John
Witherspoon, running one lap
each. Witherspoon trailed Pe-
ters of Indiana at the end of his
leg, but gave Barten a beautiful
stick pass and the Wolverine took
over immediately. Mitchell caught
him but could not match the Bar-
ten kick and the Maize and Blue
won in 3:38.7.
In the mile relay, Illinois took
revenge for their Big Nine loss
at the hands of Ohio State,
whipping the Buckeyes in 3:22.9,
with Michigan fifth. Illini Herb
McKenley built a 15-yard lead
into 30 yards at the tape. John-
son, Detweiler, Witherspoon,
and Forrestel ran for the Wol-
Wolverines Ed Ulvestaad, Gene
Moody, and Max Kelly all brought
home third place honors in the
pole vault, as a total of 13 men
tied for the third slot in the event.
They all vaulted 12 ft. 6 in. Bob
Richards of Illinois won with a
leap of 13 ft. 412 in.

Milk Wagon
Mare Romps
DETROIT, March 22 -(AP)-
Joan, a plodding seven-year-old
milk w a g o n horse, apparently
dreaming of racing silks and span-
gles, ran her heart out today in
a futile attempt to join the fist
post at the Detroit Fairgrounds
She presumably"didn't know
that the racing season doesn't open
until May 24.
The mare broke fast along
Eight Mile Road after her driv-
er, Robert Brane, 42, removed
her bit and entered a restaur-
ant to eat his lunch.
She was handicapped some-
what by the milk wagon which
ran a close second all the way.
Joan turned south toward De-
troit on Woodward Avenue, passed
the Fairgrounds entrance and
made Seven Mile Road.
Apparently realizing her mis-
take, the horse swung around and
started back out Woodward to-
ward the track, neatly dodging
cars that blocked her path along
one of Michigan's busiest thor-
oughf ares.
A would-be jockey leaped a-
board the wagon but abandoned
it when he was unable to haltE
the bitless equine.
A police scout car clocked
Joan at 25 miles per hour at one
point. Her time by furlongs
was not available.
The horse quit in the stretch
when her wagon became en-
tangled with a car.
Unlisted in the racing form, the
mare is believed to be out of "The
.,ieamery" by "Dawn."
