CHICAGO-(P)-Michigan's 2 1/2
mile medley relay team, anchored'
by Sophomore Don McEwen, sped
to a meet record of 10:11.6 to fea-
ture the afternoon round of the
19th annual Illinois Tech relays
yesterday.
Illinois, taking three firsts and
sharing another, compiled 591/2
points to edge second place Michi-
gan by 7% points and win the
University title.
Illinois' triumph in the one mile
relay, last event of the meet, was
good for 10 points and the decisive
edge. Michigan failed to place in
the race.
* * *
PURDUE was third with 35%/
followed by Wisconsin with 22 and
Notre Dame with 20%.
McEwen legged the mile in
4:14.8 in pacing the Wolverines
to a 75 yard win in the distance
medley over Pudrue. Jim Ack-
erman ran the 440, Justin Wil-
liams the 880 and Aaron Gordon
the three-quarter mile in the
Michigan victory.
The clocking completely eclipsed
the Tech Relays mark of 10:21.9
set by Indiana in 1947, which also
stood for the University of Chicago
fieldhouse record. The American
indoor record is 10:10.3 by Indiana
in 1940.
Don Laz of Illinois pole vault-
ed 14 feet 3% inches to beat by
nearly three inches the vault
record he set last year. His feat
also surpassed the University of
Chicago fieldhouse mark of 14
feet 22 inches hoisted in 1939
by Wisconsin's Milt Padway.
It was Laz's second record cham-
pionship within a week. He es-
tablished a Big Ten record a week
ago at Champaign, Ill., of 14 ftet
3%/8 inches. Laz, who has unoffi-
cially cleared 15 feet this season,
failed three times with the bar
14 feet 8 inches last night.
* * *
IN THE UNIVERSITY one mile
sprint medley, Northwestern was
clocked in a record brtaking 3:29.6
with Jim Holland, Rich 'Athan, Ed
Tunnicliff and Dean Pieper in the
lineup. The old mark, which also
was a fieldhouse record, was 3:31.6
by Michigan State in 1942 and
1943.
Illinois successfully defended
its university two mile relay title

in 7:47.5, almost one second shy
of matching Notre Damt's rec-
ord.
Iowa's Russ Merkel added the
70-yard low hurdles crown to his
victory in the highs by taking the
university barriers in :08.0 ahead
of Wisconsin's Jim Englander.
The university 440 crown went
to Drake's Jim Lavery in .49.6.
Leroy Collins, Wisconsin sopho-
more, placed second.

McEWEN carried Michigan's
colors to victory in the university
mile with a time of 4:19.3.

CHARLIE MY BOY:
Moss Ends Brilliant Career
As Ace Michigan Swimner

I .

-Daily-Carlyle Marshall
CAPT. JUSTIN WILLIAMS
looking good

By GEORGE FLINT ,
"He's got levers and he knows
how to use them."
That's the answer you'd get
from most of Charlie Moss' col-
leagues in the sport of swimming
if youeask them what makes the
big man from Wheeling, West Vir-
ginia, so terrific.
* * *
SPECTATORS WHO'VE seen
swimming styles through many
eras will look, at Charlie Moss as
he warms up before a meet and
tell you he won't do a thing-his
style is too ragged.
But those same spectators will
look on in amazement while
Moss strokes to his usual win in
the individual medley, or 100-
yard free style, or what have
you.
Those aforementioned levers,
and a strongly competitive incli-
nation, have enabled the easy-
going member of the "Berg club"
to become the competitor he is
today.
MOSS IS the sort of fellow Matt
Mann can enter in a race when
the going gets rough-he seldom
disappoints. Look at the perform-
ances he's turned in swimming
just one of his three strokes-the
breaststroke.

St TA K THE M

He holds the pool record for
the 100 yard distance-1 minute
flat, set in this year's confer-
ence meet; he's been timed in
58.9 for the breaststroke leg of
the mdley relay and he holds
the American 20-yard course
record for the 100 breast, a 1:00.-
2 clocking.
He is as good a free style sprint
man as the Wolverines could ask
for, and s w i m s consistently
around the, 52.5 mark. And ori-
ginally he was a backstroker, back
in the days when he competed for
Mercersburg, Pa., Academy.
HE STILL has a chance to use
this stroke when he competes in
his favorite event, the individual
medley.
Incidentally, a word of expla-
nation about the "Berg club",
of which Moss is a member in
good standing. It seems that
back when Dick Weinberg was
first displaying his wares for
Matt Mann, someone remarked
that he wished he could swim
like Weinberg.
Weinberg replied that in order
to swim like Weinberg one has to
have a name like Weinberg, and
as a result, several of the Wolver-
ines took to adding the 'berg' to
their name.
* * * 4
THUS, THE natators today
have formed a club whichsincludes
such faithfuls as Mossberg, Mann-
berg, Erstberg, and Kogeberg.
Charlie comes from a swimming
family. His younger sister is burn-
ing up the tank trail back home
in the land of the Magnolia blos-
soms, and his younger brother is
regarded as a very promising pros-
pect.
