NEW YORK, March 18-(/)-
Kentucky's potent Wildcats
smothered Columbia's Ivy Leaguel
champions, 76-53, tonight in thej
first semifinal game of the Na-
tional Collegiate Athletic Asso-1
ciation Eastern playoffs.
A capacity Madison Square
Garden crowd of nearly 18,5001
was on hand for the doubleheader
attraction. which also featured a
game between Holy Cross' defend-
ing NCAAA titleholders and
Michigan, the Big Nine champion.
The opening contest was a
hard-driving affair a bit on the
rough side. The scoring starts of
both teams went out in the sec-
ond half on personal fouls.
"Wah Wah" Jones, Kentucky's
point-making ace, was ejected
about midway the last hfalf after
ringing in 21 points. Walter Bud-
ko, who set a new individual scor-
ing record at Columbia this year,
went out shortly afterwards, af-
ter tallying 17.
Columbia held its own for the
first eight minutes before Ken-
tucky, taking advantage of its su-
perior height and experience,
started pulling away steadily.

Near the end of the contest

The usually adept Wolverine

however, and the Crusaders pro-

Val Johnson s presence on the
University of Michigan track team
as their 440 yard specialist is due
to a pair of amazing chances.}
When Johnson entered Michi-
gan in the spring of 1944 he had
behind him a record which was
very unusual for a future track
star. Coming from Detroit afterl
graduating from Northwestern
High, Johnson had no experience.
in track. He had never run in high
school and had no idea of joining
the track squad.
However it was here that the
first coincidence sprang up. As do
.1 freshmen Val saw before him
the unpleasant prospect of PEM.
This, needless to say, did not ap-
peal to him and in looking around
for a way out he hit on the idea
of going out for track.

but instead started building him-
self up to run, not the 440. but the
mile. All spring he ran the mile
and the following fall (1944)
started running the 60 yard dash.
Then by chance Coach Doherty
who was on his way to the Mill-
rose Games, began wondering who
he could use in the mile relay.
Johnson's name came to mind and
Doherty wired to Michigan to have
Val start working out for the 440.
Johnson first saw action in the
