orld Mark in Distance Medley Relay

COLUMBUS - Michigan's dis-
tance medley relay team made
good its promise to break the
world's record in the Ohio Relays
here yesterday afternoon.
The Wolverine quartet of Aaron
Gordon,, Jack!Carroll, John Ross,
and Don McEwen turned in a
9:56.3 performance to better by
3.1 seconds the old mark set by
North Texas State Teacher's Col-
lege in 1938.
NO TEAM champion was named
for the 14-event festivities in
which seven teams and several
unattached performers matched
their talents.
In the record-making relay
event the Wolverine quartet
lagged behind at first, but didn't
.,, lose any time in closing up the
lost ground.
Gordon, running the half mile,
finished the opening leg in third
place with a time of 1:54.2. Car-
roll followed with a terrific 46.1
quarter mile to bring the Wol-
verines into the second spot.
Then Ross sped his team into
the lead as he was clocked in 3:04.8
for the three-quarters mile. Mc-
Ewen's 4:11.2 mile widened the
first place margin and anchored
securely the new world's standard
for Michigan.
* . s
WOLVERINE coach Don Can-
ham also fulfilled his intention of
winning the four mile relay.
The foursome of John Moule,
Bill Hickman, and again Ross and
McEwen won with ease in 17:25.4.
Milt Mead came out literally "on
top" in his personal high jump
duel with Illinois' Ron Mitchell.

26 Home Runs
NEW YORK-(R)-The rabbit
ball made its first appearance of
the young 1952 season yesterday
as major league batters connected
for 26 home runs in nine games.
Andy Pafko cracked two homers
and Carl Furillo, Roy Campanella
and Duke Snider one each against
the Giants to lead Brooklyn to its
fifth straight victory. Campanel-
la, Pafko and Snider homered in
succession in the seventh to tie a
major league record shared by
many. Whitey Lockman collected
two homers and Willie Mays and
Wes Westrum one each for the
Other men to slam homers were
Sam Jethroe and Ed Mathews of
the Braves; the Phil's Gran Ham-
mer; Hank Sauer and Frank
Baumholtz, Cubs; Grady Hatten,
Bobby Adams and Andy Seminick
of Cincinnati; Johnny Merson,
Pittsburgh; Larry Doby and Luke

Mitchell and Perod Dudard of
Ohio State, who tied for second..
Mead and Mitchell had prev-
iously whipped each other once.
Stanford's Olympic prospect,
Otis Chandler, bested Michigan's
Big Ten champion Fritz Nilsson
in the shot put. Chandler's 55
foot, three and one-third inch
heave left him well ahead of Nils-
son's 53 foot, nine and one-half
inch effort.
Nilsson came back to win the
discus with a throw of 159 feet,
one-half inch. Chandler finished
a distant fourth behind Mary Per-
schet and Art Twardock, both of

Rankin, Dan Hickman, Bill Kon-
rad, and Jack Carroll racked up
another Wolverine victory as they
combined their talents to run a*
3:17.4 mile.
Wally Atchison of the Maize and
Blue placed second in the 120-
yard high hurdles behind Illinois'
Joe 'McNulty. The winning time
was 14.3.
The pole vault also went to the
Illini as Dick Coleman cleared 14
feet, two and seven-eighths inches,
with the runner-up spot going to
Buckeye Jerry Welbourn.
Flint Northern
Takes River
Rouge Crown
Two new high school champions
and one defender garnered the'
major share of the laurels in the'
Thirteenth annual River Rouge
Invitational indoor track meet at
Yost Field House yesterday after-
noon and evening.
More than a thousand athletes
participated in what is generally
considered the world's largest
indoor high school meet.
IN AN UNUSUALLY close finish
Flint Northern edged Ann ,Arbor
and Dearborn for the Class A
crown. Only one point separated
the third place teani from the
Ecorse the defending Class B
champion scored 292 points to
top Marshall's 272 and Rose-
ville's 27. In another close race
East Jackson slipped by Lansing
Everet by a mere sixth of a
point, 30 to 29 5/6 to take the
combined Class C and D crown.
Seven records were broken, two
in class A competition. Ypsilanti's
Jim Seidl turned in a 4:40 mile in
romping to an easy win. The pre-
vious record of 4:41.4 was held by
Jim Arnold of"'Battle Creek.
Duane Root of Wyandotte was
the only double winner. He set a
new record in the low hurdles of
7.6, a tenth better than the old
mark. Root also won the high
hurdles in the time of 8.2 tying
the record.

feat, Wisniewski was in, com-
mand of the Tartars through-
out. He struck out 13 men in his
eight inning stint, fanning all
but one of the Wayne starting
nine at least once.
He was in trouble only in the
second inning when he loaded the
bases on three walks after two
were out. However, Croteau fanned
to end the threat.
Wisniewski walked two other
Tartars, but only one more man
reached second. He set the side
down in order in four innings.

COLUMBUS - Michigan's 1952
golfers got off to a flying start in
Conference play with a triangular
meet victory over Purdue and Ohio
State here yesterday afternoon.
Led by John Fraser, who carded
150 for the 36 holes, the Wolver-
ines downed the Boilermakers,
231/2-121/2, and trounced the Buck-
eyes, 25%-101. Purdue defeated
Ohio State, 22-14.
* * s
Ohio State, the Wolverines stopped
two of the three teams which are
expected to battle it out with
Michigan for the Big Ten title'
next month. The other strong
team in the Conference is Iowa.
Ohio State and Purdue fin-
ished one-two in the Big Ten
championships last year at
Evanston#as the Wolverines
came home fourth, three points
behind the Boilermakers.
The Wolverines got off to a good
start on the 'first 18 holes, as
Fraser, Dean Lind, and Russ John-'
son shot one-over-par 73's. At the
halfway mark Michigan led Pur-
due, 10/2-72, and Ohio State,
* * *
FRASER added a 77 on his sec-
ond 18, and thus shared medalist

honors for the meet with Francis
Cardi of the Buckeyes who put
together scores of 77 in the morn-
ing and 73 in the afternoon for
his 150 total. Purdue's medalist
was Norm Dunlop with a 152 total
for the 36 holes.
Behind Fraser for the Wolver-
ines were Lind, with a second
18 of 79 for a 152 total, and
Johnson, with an afternoon
score of 81 for a 154 total

team were Hugh Wright and
Lowell LeClaire with 156's and
Dick Evans, who carded a 158 for
the 36 holes. All three shot morn-
ing rounds of 79.
* * *
THE SCORING for the meet
was based on medal play, one
point being given for each nrine
and one additional point for' the
low score on each 18. With six
men playing on each team, 18
points were recorded in both the
morning and afternoon rounds.
Michigan showed much better
golf in the morning than it did in
the afternoon with an average of
76 per man on the first 18.
The Wolverines open their home
golf season against the University
of Detroit on the University Golf
Course Wednesday afternoon.

Brownies Prove Early Season Surprise

Hurlers Lead Way
During First Week
The opening of the regular sea-
son five days ago signalled the end
of the holidays for all the major
league baseball clubs.
The big surprise of the young
season is the St. Louis Browns'
neck and neck run with the,
Cleveland Indians for top billing
in the American League.
* * *
WHAT IS even more startling
is the 'way St. Louis has won.
Ned Garver opened with a six hit,
nine strikeout shutout of the Tig-
ers. The Brownie whiz got a couple
of hits on his own hook. Next day
wild man Tommy Byrne walked
only three batters in tripping the
Bengals and then Bob Cain went
the route to sweep the series.
