igan won four Relay Champion-
ships of America exactly three
years ago.
Today's accomplishments. coup-
led with a victory in the sprint
medley and Charley Fonville's win
in the shot put yesterday, gave
Michigan two Relay Champion-
ships, two individual titles, and
two reLay runner-up positions.
Eartmn's Best Day'
Barten, who according to Do-
herty had his "best day ever." an-
chored the two-mile quartet to a
7:49.6 triumph over Manhattan
University, and came back 35 min-
utes later to battle N.Y.U.'s Reggie
Pearman for the full 440 yards on
the anchor of the' mile relay, only
to lose the decision by one yard
and one-tenth of a second.
Michigan's young sophomore
pole vaulter, Ed Ulvestad, walked
off with one of the coveted first-
place wrist watches by winning his
specialty with a leap of 13 feet. He
kept right on jumping and missed
13 ft., six in. by a whisker.
Vetter Second
In the two-mile relay, George
Vetter led off for the Wolverines,
ran a fine le, but wound up about
10 yards behind the lead-oi man
for Fordhaln University.
Justin Williams, two - niler
turned half-miler for this event,
held his own on the second leg.
Bob Thomason came through with
a brilliant 1:55 effort, the best of
his career, to sew the match up by
handing Barten a two-yard lead
over Toni Comerford of Manhat-
Barten ran away from Comer-
ford to hand Michigan its second
Relay Championship of America.
Mile Relay Thrills
The mile relay was a thriller
from start to finish, and it took the

3rd GolfYear
A long ball, a good short game,
and fourteen years of experience
are among the attributes which
Roger Kessler brings with him as
he moves into his third year on
the varsity golf squad.
Typical of so many fine golfers,
Rog has been perfecting his game
since he was hardly as tall as a
golf club. The 19-year-old engi-
neering junior appeared in his
first tournament, the Barton Hills
Junior, at the tender age of seven.'
In the recent southern tour,
Kessler won 212 points from his
opponent in the match with Duke
and took three from North Ci'r-
olina. Most of his efforts last
year were in the 70's, but he
played his best golf during the
summer, climaxed by his victory
in the Detroit Times Tournament.
He was also runner-up in the Chi-
cago Open Junior Tournament.

fastest time of the year in the na-
tion to send the Michigan quartet
home second best in this event.
Val Johnson ripped off a start-
ing 440 which was probably under
49 seconds to give the Wolverines
a seven-yard lead going into the
second leg. George Shepherd in-
creased this to ten yards during
his stint.
Joe Hayden then took over and
ran a 48.6 quarter-mile, only to
fall victim to a 47.5 effort by
N.Y.U.'s Jim Gilhooley.
Rest 440
The New York speedster's time
was the best 440 of the day and
one of the finest performances of
the two-day meet, falling in the
class of Barten's 1.52.4 half-mile
on the anchor of the sprint med-
ley yesterday.
Barten and Pearman started off
all-even on the last leg of the mile
relay, and challenged each other
right down to the wire.
Fighting Finish
Both men possess just about the
finest finishing "kicks" in the
country, and their final drive to
the tape brought 35,000 spectators
to their feet screaming and yell-
ing as darkness fell over Franklin
Pearman inched ahead and
held on to nip Michigan's captain,
who was clocked in 48.2-a tre-
mendous effort after only one half
hour's rest. The N.Y.U. time of
3:15.5 was only seven tenths of a
second off the meet record,
Other relay winners in the meet
were: Manhattan (880-yard re-
lay); Penn State (four-mile re-
lay); Pittsburgh (shuttle hurdle
relay); and Lorenzo Wright of
Wayne University, who won the
broad jump with a leap of 24 ft.,
7 3 8 in.
