GEHRMANN OUTSHONE:
Distance Foursome Breaks Relay Mark

Hicks Edges Engstrand
In 2-1 Pitcher's Battle

Tight Squeak

Snecial to The Daily
LAWRENCE - Kansas - Mich-
igan's great distance medley quar-
tet of Art Henrie, Chuck Whittak-
er, Jus Williams, and Don McEwen
hung up their top performance of
the season yesterday as they broke
the varsity, field, and meet record
with a 10:09.7 timing in the Kan-
sas Relays.
A tremendous anchor mile by
sophomore -Don McEwen won the
race for the Maize and Blue four-
some. Again his victim was Wis-
consin's heralded Don Gehrmann,
who seems to be jinxed whenever
the Wolverine's top distance star
is entered against him.
* * *
McEWEN BEGAN the last leg of
the relay just a few feet ahead of
the best college miler now run-
ning. But when the finish line ap-
peared, McEwen had a huge 25
yard margin over Gehrmann to
give Michigan. a first place and a
multi-record breaking perform-
ance.
The time was the fastest eith-
er in indoor or outdoor competi-
tion this year. It broke the meet
record of 10:12.7 set by the Em-
poria State Teachers with the
aid of former great college miler,
Archie San Romani. It also beat
the American indoor record and
' was only 10 seconds shy of North
Texas State's outdoor American
record of 9:59.4 set in the Penn
Relays in 1938.
The varsity outdoor record of
10:20.1 set with the aid of the
great distance twins, the Humes,
also fell by the wayside.
Oklahoma A&M finished third,

fifth. But none of these three had
a chance beginning with the an-
chor mile, as Michigan and Wis-
consin led the field by 30 yards.
The rest of the starting field of
ten were strung far back as Wol-
verines ran to their decisive win,
which was two seconds better than
their previous best time set indoors
at the Illinois Tech Relays.

mann had run a race previous to
his anchor stint. But the decisive
margin cannot be overlooked too
easily. Twenty-five yards ahead of
Gehrmann in any mile race has
been a rarity since the Badger star
began his college competition four
years ago.
Gehrmann's other famous de-
feat at the hands of McEwen
was suffered in the Western
Conference Cross Country meet
last year when the Wolverine
star won by 200 yards in setting
a new record.
Michigan's other entry, the four
mile relay had to be scratched.
Aaron Gordon, second best Wol-
verine miler, injured his leg in a
gym class doing gymnastics, and
was unable to run.
Kansas took the four mile relay
event in 17:34.2, which broke the
meet record by 2 seconds. How-
ever, this is quite a bit above the
American record set by Indiana,
and Sweden's world record holders.

With three more races left for

Jim Johns, Commodore of the
Michigan tars, has been th eout-
standing skipper of the meet.
Johns, who was the top skipper
in the Mid-West Collegiate Sail-
ing Association last spring, is
continuing to prove he still is
tops with a perfect record for
the day of four straight wins.
He might have had a fifth win
to his credit if he wasn't disquali-
fied when he hit a marker in one
of his A division races.
Skippering the Wolverine's B di-
vision entry, Gene O'Connor has
given a very commendable per-
formance, taking two firsts, two
seconds, and a fifth.

THE DE PAUW dinghies are be-
ing manned by Tom Floyd and
Chuck Tummonds, skippers of the
A and B boats, respectively. Both
have been hugging the Maize and
Blue stern, constantly pressing the
Michigan tars.
John Rieman is crewing for
Floyd while Steve Waxer is as-
sisting Tummonds.
The weather thus far has been
perfect for sailing and if it con-
tinues that way today, the remain-
ing races should be run off before

the two o'clock deadline to enable
all participants to get back to their
respective schools in time.
Don McVitty, chairman of the
sailing meets committee in the
mid-west, said that all the boat-
men have showed good clean
sportsmanship which has made
this regatta the fine meet it is.

By BOB SANDELL
Lanky Bob Hicks' masterful
four hit hurling and a dramatic
twelfth inning rally was the story
of the Wolverines' second Big Ten;
victory yesterday afternoon at
Ferry Field.
"Lefty" Hal Morrill's pop bunt
finally broke up a brilliant pitching
duel between Hicks and Minne-
sota's Dale Engstrand to give
Michigan a hard fought 2-1 tri-
umph and a sweep of the two game
series.
m * *
IT WAS a well-deserved win for
Hicks who faced only 28 men in
* * *

BUCHOLZ WENT to second
when Koceski, hitless in five pre-
vious trips, laced out a single over
second base and then rode home
with the tying marker on Morri-
son's hard blast to right.
The strategy then called for
Morrill, who was also having
trouble solving Engstrand, to
try to squeeze the speedy Koces-
ki over the plate.
"Lefty" came through with a
hard pop bunt past the pitcher
that the infield could not pick
up in time to nab Leo who raced
in with the winning tally.
The Gophers had earlier taken
a 1-0 lead in the top half of the
inning that looked mighty big
with the way Engstrand was set-
ting down the Wolverines.
* * *
BILL KRANZ opened the frame
with a line double just inside the
right field foul marker. Engstrand
went down swinging and that
brought up the leadoff man.
Catcher Glenn Gostic.
He rallied to the occasion
with a poke into left field to
score Kranz with the first run
of the game. Hicks then settled
down to dispose of Toni Warner
and Jim Anderson.
Previous to that the Gopners
had managed to get only two men
as far as second base and one of
those was picked off by Hicks.
THE WOLVERINES, however,
were c o n s t a n t 1 y threatening,
thanks to Engstrand's inability to
consistently find the plate. His
wildness made him hard to hit,
though, and the Maize and Blue
left 13 men stranded on the base
paths.
Morison collected two of the
four Michigan hits with a line
drive double in the third inning
besides his important blow in the
twelfth.
Hicks' control was superb. gHe
allowed only one walk over the
distance and struck out four. He
had the Gophers hitting into the
ground as evidenced by Morrill's
20 putouts at first base.
Each team committed one er-
ror, but there were very few hard
chances. It was a pitcher's game
all the way.
