The Wolverines failed to win
any firsts, as they scored four
points both in the half mile and
high jump, three in the two
mile, two in the mile relay and
one in the high hurdles.
In the 880, Mal Whitfield of
Ohio State won in easy fashion
with the good time of 1:52.4. Don

ish second.
Dolan cleared his consistent
six feet four inches, as Eddle-

His attempt to better the con-
ference record of six, seven and
one-quarter was unsuccessful.
The first mile of the two mile
race saw Dick Blanchard of Pur-
due, Dave DeWitte of Indiana and
Jim Urquhart of Wisconsin
battling it out for the lead posi-
tion. Justin Williams of Michigan
was running seventh in the field
of 18 men.

THE WOLVERINE pulled into
first place just before the final:
440, but began to weaken and
dropped back into third, behind
Vic Twomey of the Illini.
Urquhart turned on a ter-
rific kick in the final 220, to
win the race with the good time
of 9:22.6. Twomey faded on the
last hundred yards, but Williams
couldn't quite catch him, as he
crossed the line third in a burst
of speed.
