Midwest Milers Show Top Fort

It wasn't too long ago that any
runner who bettered four minutes
and 20 seconds in a mile race was
considered a top prospect..
But this year, coaches and fans
are having a hard time keeping

tab of the milers who have
under 4:15.


* * *
MIDWESTERN competition last
week-end produced four such
BILL MACK of Michigan: State,
who ran 4:09.6;
DON McEWEN, of Michigan,
who turned in a 4:11.7 mile;
LAWTON LAMB of Illinois,
who, running second to McEwen,
was clocked in less than 4:15, and;
LEN TRUEX of Ohio State, who
ran under the 4:15 mark as he
finished second behind Mack.
Conspicuous by his absence in
the above listing is the Badger
bullet, Don Gehrmann, whose
4:28.9 performance was the
slowest winning time in a Con-
ference meet last week.
Evidentally that race was only
a warm-up for the Wisconsin
champion, though, for he came
back in the half-mile with a rec-
ord-shattering time of 1:51.8.
* * *
BUT THE outstanding consid-
eration to be given to this list is
the fact that all the runners ex-
cept Mack are sophomores, and
all except the Spartan will be en-
tered in Western Conference com-
petition for the next two and one-
half years.
McEwen, who stopped a threat
to his cinder track supremacy
by beating Lamb last week, will
find himself confronted with
possibly a stronger competitor
this week when he faces Truex
in the Michigan - Ohio dual
meet, scheduled for Saturday
night in Yost Field House.
A very fast man with a good
share of endurance, Truex retal-
iated his defeat in the mile by
running a 1:53.9 half-mile which,
along with Mack's mile time, was
chalked up as a new Jennison
Field House record last week.

REGARDLESS of the fact that
milers have developed a fad for
cracking the 4:15 mark of late, it
is noteworthy that three of Don
Canham's runners clipped the 4:20
mark last week.
Running third behind McEwei
and Illinois' Lamb was the most
improvedrunnerof the week, Shel
Capp. He was stopped in 4:18.5,
one full second ahead of the
fourth-place runner, Michigan's
Aaron Gordon, who had also
broken the 4:20 mark a week earli-
er in a race with Gehrmann.
That marked the first time on
record that three Michigan
trackmen ran under the mark in
the same indoor race.

When Michigan's

swimmers 1 also the world's 400-meter record

meet Ohio State Saturday at Col-
umbus, they will sample more than
just Ohio's strength for the Con-
ference and National Collegiate
meets-they will also see what
talent the Buckeyes will have for
two years to come.
For Ohio State boasts a group
of eight sophomores who could
easily form a team by themselves.

THESE newcomers to Coach
Mike Peppe's squad cover every
stroke and every distance, and ev-
en add strength to Ohio's already
potent diving team.
Outstanding perhaps among
this group is Jack Taylor, who
swims both back stroke and free
style. As a back stroker, he has
been timed at 1:35 for the 150-
yard stint; and he has turned in
one of the country's fastest 440-
yard free style times this sea-

promise in the 100 is Hawaiian

another Hawaiian, has already

Balmores was timed at 2:21. for
the 200 this season.

CHUCK STEFANOS, a six-foot-

giving Ohio points this year in the
