OLYMPIC CARNIVAL:
Don Gehrmann Sets Half-Mile Mark

(.;

Breast Stroke, Free Style

NEW YORK -(p)- Don Gehr-
mann, the Wisconsin whippet, ran
the fastest half-mile in history on
a stranded 11-lap track last night
when he negotiated the distance
in 1:51 at the Olympic Carnival
in Madison Square Garden.
While a crowd of about 9,000
cheered him on, Gehrmann went
to the front at the start, and simp-
ly opened up daylight the rest of
the way. He finished about 30
yards ahead of young Albin Rauch
of Princeton. Roscoe Brown of the
New York Pioneer Club was third
and Mal Whitfield of the Air
Force fourth.
* * *
GEHRMANN'S clocking was just
one-half second off the American
indoor record set by the late John
Borican in at Navy relief meet 10
years ago, but that was on a nine-
lap saucer, which is considered

considerably faster than the 11-
lap track.
Horace Ashenfelter, as is his,
custom, when Fred Wilt isn't
around, won the two-mile run
with no trouble, beating out
Curt Stone and his brother, Bill,
by about a quarter of a lap.
He was caught in 9:04.3, more
than 10 seconds slower than his
best effort. Like Gehrmann, he
had no competition, and was
forced to set his own pace all the
way.
* * *
YOUNG OLLIE SAX, who shows
more and more every time he runs,
captured the 440-yard run in 49.3,
beating George Rhoden, Herb
McKenley and Charlie Moore-
three of the swiftest in the world
at the distance-for the third time
this season.
Lt. Warren Druetzler of Camp
Lee, Va., ran the fastest mile of
the season-4:08.2-and in the
process beat Fred Wilt by about
15 yards in the eight-furlong
event. Druetzler, a former Mich-
igan State runner, took over the
lead in the last lap and won
going away. Bill Mack, another
former Spartan ace, was third
and Gene Haynes of the Navy
fourth.

Marks Fall in Meet Preview
Hill Equals Cleveland's 75-Yard Standard;
Wolverines Win All Events in Wayne Rout

In the two mile relay the
Georgetown quartet drew revenge
for their defeat at the hands of
Illinois and Michigan in the
Knights of Columbus Meet at
Cleveland last week.
Last night Georgetown was fol-
lowed across the finish line by
Illinois and Michigan in that or-
der.
Friday night the Wolverine
squad came up with five titles in
the Canadian national indoor
championships at Montreal.
Captain McEwen put on quite
a performance before the 4,0001
spectators in the Montreal Forum,
romping to an easy two mile win
in record time.
McEwen's clocking of 9:04 flat
broke his own Canadian Open
standard, beat the Michigan Var-
sity record of 9:04.6, which he
tied this year, and was the best
time the Flying Scot has ever
turned in indoors.
Van Bruner, .the only non-
Canadian making the trip, tied
the Canadian Open record for the
50-yard high hurdles, in winning
the event. The record of 6.3 is
also held by Olympian Harrison
Dillard.
Jack Carroll turned in his first
win over Olympic champ; Mal
Whitfield in the 500-yard run.
Sophomore Ross put on another
stellar performance in taking the
mile run with ease.
George Lynch, Michigan stu-
dent running unattached was the
other Wolverine. victor. He romped
to victory by more than 10 yards
in the 1000-yard run.
Two other Maize and Blue
thinclads participated. Freshman
John Moule placed second in the
junior mile run, while Jeff Dooley
finished third in the 1000.

Racing against nothing but the
clock Wolverine swimmers shat-
tered four American records and
tied another one last night in the
Intramural Pool.
The full-scale assault on five
national breast stroke and free-
style marks preceded Michigan's
final dual meet of the season, in
which the Wolverines rolled easily
over Wayne, 75-18.
* * *
RECORDS that fell in the pre-
meet onslaught included the 800,
1000, and 1200-yard breast stroke
relay marks and the 150-yard free-
style mark.
So'phomore Don Hill, swim-
ming all alone, tied Dick Cleve-
land's 75-yard free style record
of :35.5, which the great Ohio
State sprinter set earlier this
year.
John Davies, Stew Elliott, Rusty
Carlisle, and Jim White splintered
21.4 seconds off Ohio State's 800-
yard breast stroke relay mark of
10:08.6 when they turned in a
time of 9:47.2 for 32 laps of the
pool.
THEN Tom Benner churned an-
other 200 yards in 2:39.3 to give
the breast strokers a 12:39.7 time
for 1000, yards, good enough to
crack the old standard by 24.5
seconds.
Ed Furdac followed Benner
with a time of 2:36.2. This add-
ed the 1200-yard mark to the
Wolverines rapidly growing col-
lection, the total time of 15:02.9
clipping 33.2 seconds off the pre-
vious top performance of 15:36.1.
Davies, swimming the opening
leg of the relay, swam the 200

Freshman Ron Gora set another
American record tumbling when
he flew through the 150-yard free
style distance in 1:21.3. This was
Gora's second attempt to break the
mark Allan Kirchner of Great
Lakes set in 1944, and this time he
managed to beat it by one tenth
of a second.
One other national record was
established by a former Wolverine
swimming star, Bernie Kahn, who
is now in grad school at the Uni-
versity. Kahn cracked the 50-yard
back stroke mark of 26.7, held by
Yale's Alan Ford, with a 26.6 time.
The meet itself proved to be lit-
tle more than a good workout for
the Wolverines. Coach Matt Mann
came up with such combinations
as ace breast stroker Stew Elliott
swimming in the free style relay
and back stroker John Chase
swimming the 440-yard free style,
but Michigan still took first place
in every event.

The Redmen thus represent
the East in the National Finals at
Seattle, Wash., next week.
In the first game of last night's
doubleheader, North Carolina
State whipped Penn State, 69-60,
to capture third place.
The underdogs of Coach Frank
McGuire showed 11,200 spectators
in Reynolds Coliseum that a con-
trol game mixed with some accur-

Wildcats, the Nation's No. 1 team
and defending NCAA titlists.
The defeat snapped a 23-game
winning streak for the usually
high-scoring Kentuckians.

upset in the first period. It was

Illinois, never ahead by more

EAST LANSING --(IP)- High-
land Park's come-back kids won
their second photo finish in as
many nights here last night with
a 43-42 victory over Saginaw
Arthur Hill that gave the Parkers
the Class A High School Basket-
ball Championship of Michigan.
Grabbing off their first state
title in the history of the school,
the Highland Park quintet had
to fight off an aroused Arthur
Hill club that pressed the winners
all the way.
S * *
WITH NEVER more than five
points separating the two teams
after the half, where Arthur Hill
led by a 23-22 margin, the players
sent the huge crowd of 12,402 fans
into the screaming meemies.
The game had a dramatic
finish with forward John Adams
tipping one in to pull the Hill
Lumberjacks to within one
point at 43-42. He was fouled in

the shot but missed the free
throw that would have tied it
up at the 36 second mark.
The win enabled Highland Park
to join Detroit St. Andrew 41-38
victor over Grand Blanc for the
Class B crown, St. Louis which
won the C title by downing Al-
gonac 53-34, and Fowler's D
champs who overpowered Cope-
mish, 55-20.
BUT THE HIGHLAND PARK
quintet was the talk of the tour-
ney. Unbeaten this season in 19
games, the Parkers survived two
of the roughest windup games in
tourney history.
In the Friday night semi-finals,
the Parks came from behind in
the dying seconds of the game to
whip Hollands favored forces in
overtime.
And the championship game was
just as thrilling.
