Altogether three college records
were broken and one tied in the
two-day meet. Seven new high
school marks were set.
Lee Hofacre of Minnesota
blotted out a 10-year-old Drake
record for the 440-yard hurdle
race by skimming the barriers in
52.7 seconds. This erased the old
mark of 53.2 seconds set by Jack
Peterson of Rice in 1938.
Michigan State teams placed
fourth in the two-mile and four-
mile'relays, and came in fifth in
the half-mile test.
Dillard, who aspires to proudly
wear the shield of the United
States in the 1948 Olympic games,
thrilled a shirt-sleeved crowd of
15,000 spectators in Drake Sta-
dium by streaking to victory in
the 120 yard high hurdles in 14.1
seconds. This tied the record he
jset here a year ago.
