Three Teams To Pace Field
In Conference Track Meet
This week end's Western Con-
ference track meet in Champaign
isn't going to be the run-away
that it was last year-not by a
Any thoughts as to the pos-
sibility of a repeat ,performance
of the lop-sided fllini victory van-
ished several months ago with
the ineligibility of Messrs. Reh-
berg and Vranek.
There have even, been wild
rumors of either Michigan or
Ohio State coming up from no-
where to grab the crown.
This is a little far-fetched, but
certainly very possible.
The Buckeyes and Wolver-
ines are both stronger than last
year with the Maize and Blue
probably the most improved of
Here's how the top men line
up in each event:
In the mile Wisconsin's Don
Gehrman should win, but Illi-
nois' John Karkow, Indiana's Tom
Deal or Michigan's Herb Barten
can beat him out.
In the half it's Barten going
away. Last year he won it by
The two mile should go to Gehr-
man, who is rapidly becoming one
of the nation's finest distance
men. He'll also be defending his
crown in this event.
Michigan can take one-two in
the quarter if previous perform-
ances mean anything. Val John-
son and George Shepherd have
the best time in the Conference
but will have plenty of trouble
from Ohio's Jerry Cogswell and
Herb Butler of Illinois.
The hurdles should be a two
man affair between Tllini
George Walker and Northwest-3
ern's Bill Porter with the Wild-
cat ace getting the nod in both
the highs and lows.
The mile relay should go to
the Wolverines with OSU close by
at the finish. Without Herb Mc-
Kenley Illinois can't be considered
a threat in this one.
In the field events the top
three should dominate the scene.
Illinois' Dike Eddleman is tops
in the high jump as is Michigan's
Charlie Fonville in the shot. The
broad jump is a toss-up between
Minnesota's Lloyd LaMois and
Ohio's versatile Lloyd Duff. The
Buckeye will also be seeking a
place in the pole vault, but will
run into some tought competi-

nesota and Tom Bennet of Wis-
