BITTER .RIVALRY RENEWED:
Tracksters Duel Illini in
be * it
(Last of a series previewing the Big
Ten Outdoor Track and Field Chamn-
pionships to be held Friday and Sat-
urday in Champaign, Illinois.)
By HANLEY GURWIN
This year's conference track
meet all boils down to another dual
meet between Michigan and Illi-
nois, with the Illini in the favor-
Between these two track squads,
well over 125 of the possible 230
points will probably be split. Of
the fourteen events on the out-
door card, in only one event, the
pole vault, is neither a Wolverine
nor an Illini given an excellent
chance of picking up first-place
THE WOLVERINE cinder squad
will be represented in the meet by
four defending outdoor champions,
including John Ross, who galloped
the mile in 4:10.7 to win the crown
last year. Roland "Fritz" Nilsson,
whose 54 foot shot put won that
event last year will be back again
to try to heave the 16-pound
weight even farther. Nilsson is also
expected to win his other special-
ty, the discus throw.
Milt Mead, who recently set
new meet, Ferry Field, and var-
sity records when he high-
Jumped 6 feet, 81/ inches, is the
obvious choice to win his event.
Last year Mead tied for first
place with Illini Ron Mitchell,
who will not be competing this
year, when he leaped 6 feet,
5 11/16 inches in the conference
In the mile relay Michigan's de-
fending champions will be seeking
revenge for a loss to Illinois on
May 16 when a dropped baton cost
there the event in the dual clash
here in Ann Arbor.

THE ILLINI, pre-meet favorites,
will be after their sixth straight
Big Ten crown. Leo Johnson's
squads have won both the indoor
and outdoor titles every year since
1950. To win this time, the Orange
and Blue cindermen must domi-
nate the dashes and hurdle events,
offsetting the team balance of the
Wolverines, who should score in
13 of the 14 events.
Illini Willie Williams and Joe
Corley could conceivably go one-
two in the 100-yard dash, but
face stern competition in the
220 from Lou Vargha of Michi-
gan State who has the season's
best time to date, a :23.4.
Again in the high hurdles, Illi-
nois' Joel McNulty ranks as the
favorite with teammate Willard
Thomson and Wolverine Van Bru-
ner right behind. Iri the lows, Tom
Hughes of Purdue is the man to
beat, but three Illini, McNulty,
Corley, and Williams as well as
Wolverine Jim Love will be bat-
1ling it out as well.l
THE ILLINOIS powerhouse is
also expected to pile up first-place
points in the broad jump and in
the 880-yard run, where Tom
Floyd and Stacey Siders will com-
pete for the defending Orange and'
Blue. Siders won the event in last
year's outdoor conference meet asI
he set a new record of 1:51.4, but
he was recently beaten by Ross in
the dual meet here.
The mile and two mile runs,
like most of the other events,
will probably be won by a Wol-
verine or an Illini. Ross' main
competition in the mile will
come from Walt Jewsbury, Illi-
nois distance ace, and Jim Kep-
ford, Michigan State runner.
The two-mile shapes up as a
duel between Jewsbury, Wolverine
George Lynch, and Iowa's Rich
Ferguson, while the 440-yard dash
finds two Wolverines, one Illini,

sidered the dark-horse candi-
date for the title at the start
of the season, have moved into
the second-best rating at the
moment. The Bucks lost to
Michigan at Lafayette, 191-
16., but roared back to defeat
the Wolverines,A20 -151 , two
Iweeks later in Ann Arbor.
The third team rated a- chance
for the title is Wisconsin. The
Badgers have the advantage of
playing on their home course this
year. Rated as one of the league's
stronger squads at the beginning
of the season, the Badgers have
lost some of this high regard by
suffering upset setbacks at the
hands of mediocre Minnesota and
a weak Michigan State.
