points to 57 -for the Hoosiers
and 31 for the Boilermakers.
Herb Barten and Chuck Low
tarted the Maize and Blue off to
victory by taking first and second
in the mile. Earl Mitchell of In-
diana took an early lead in this
event as Barten and Low hung
back until the final lap. Coming
down the backstretch the two
Wolverine thinclads kicked past
Dick Blanchard of Purdue and
battled each other down the final
straight-a-way as Barten edged
out his teammate by one yard
in 4:2;.5.
'Barten came back .to annex
his second victory of the after-
noon, taking the half-mile in
1:55.5. Again 'Barten bided his
t ime as Hloosier Torm lDeal and
Walter Klink of P1urdue set the
carly pace. Barten unleashed
hiswing kick on the far
turn, striding past D)eaI and
Klink to take the ;i82 gottg

Wolverines and added another,
record to his fast-growing list.

in. to break the old Ferry Field
mark set by Wolverine Bill Wat-
son nine years ago. Fonville also
tossed the discuss 139 ft. 6 in. for
his second triumph of the meet.
The Wolverines came through
with -a one-two in the quarter-
mile. Michigan's Mel Detwiler
took the lead on the turn, but
coming down the stretch toward
the tape Bill Bradley of Indiana
sneaked past Detwiler on the
inside while Wolverines Dick
Forrestel and George Shepherd
came up on the autside. Forres-
tel snapped the tape a yard in
front of Shepherd in 50.5 with
Bradley grabbing third place.
Indiana's hurdling brother act
of Tom and Bill Mitchell stole the
show in the timber topping divi-
sion. Tom took the highs in :15
and the lows in 24:9 as Bill was
runner-up in both events.
Hoosier Don Snyder uncorked
a sprint in the bell lap of the two-

der's heels until the last back-
stretch, but he couldn't match the

and Blue third place points in
this event.
Indiana also came up with a
double winner as Chuck Peters

Elliott's triumph over Wildcat
Jim Lamb in the final singles
match of the day changed defeat
into victory for the Wolverine
golf team today as they narrowly
squeaked by Northwestern's un-
defeated squad, 14-13.
Elliott shot a 75 to edge Lamb
in a thrilling match that was un-
decided until the last putt was
holed. The 2, points gained by
the Wolverines in this match gave
them just the necessary amount
to insure victory.
Though Elliott's brilliant play
proved to be the deciding factor,
the steady stroking of Captain
Dave Barclay enabled the Maize
and Blue to chalk up six much
needed counters.
Barclay carded a two over 1r
73 to take the number two singles
match from Bob Abrahams and
then cane back to team with Ed!
Schalon and defeat the strong
doubles team of Manuel de a
Torre and Abrahalins in the be.
ball play.
Michigan won three out of the
six singles events with Corky
Courtright defeating Dick Stiver-
son in addition to Elliott's andl
Barclay's wins.
In the doubles play Johnny
Jenswold and Rog Kessler teamed
to take a 21 to '2victory over
the Wildcat duo of Chuck Lind-
gren and Bill Sticklen, while
