In Second Place Deadlock
Victors Grab First Slots in Mile, 880, 440;
Yount Takes Half-Mile With Excellent 2.13.1

Cooley House captured all three
long distance events, as it swept
past all opposition to the Resi-
cence Halls indoor track cham-
pionship last night at Yost Field
With 26 points, the East Quad-
ders doubled the score on their
nearest rivals, Adams House and
Gomberg House, who tied for sec-
ond with 13 points each.
, *
THE WIN enabled Cooley to
nose out Gomberg for the track
honors of the 1953-54 season. Coo-
ley had taken the cross country
meet earlier in the year, with
Gomberg finishing second, but the
South Quad men came back to
annex the outdoor cinder meest,
with Cooley runner-up.
Although they garnered only
three points in the field events
the East Quad men took first
place in the mile, the 880, and
the 440.
Bill Follet was not pressed as
he turned in a 5.03.4 clocking in
the mile. Ben Yount breezed in a
} half a lap in front of Dave Harris
of Allen Rumsey House, with a
fine 2.13.1 time in the 880. Cooley
had a close call in the 440 as Bob
Weibel, with a 58.6 time, hit the
tape a mere four tenths of a sec-
ond ahead of Anderson House' Don
Highway. Larry Green of Lloyd
House finished three tenths of a
second behind Highway. Greg Ber-
ry of Allen-Rumsey took fourth
in 59.7.
THE SHOT put event was as
close as the 440. A distance of one
inch separated the top three com-
petitors. Taylor House' Dick Vor-
enkamp got off the winning heave
which traveled 36'2".
Dick Fontenesse of Strauss
House followed with a 36'1%"
toss, while Norm Ziegelman of
Gomberg House placed third
with a 36'1" throw.
The only tie of the meet result-
ed when George Hoaglin of Van
Tyne House and Glenn Coury of
Hinsdale House deadlocked in the
high jump. Both of them cleared
High point man for the entire
meet was Yount who collected sec-
ond place in the broad jump in
addition to his first in the 880, for
a total of eight points. This en-
abled him to edge out Norm Nie-
dermeier of' Adams House who
grabbed seven points on a first in
the pole valut and a third in the 65
yard high hurdles.

Of the returning outfielders,
Paul Lepley is the standout. His
mention to the All-American sec-

considerably by his .396 batting

A junior from Warwick, Ohio, he
played left field last year and his
strong arm kept many runners'
from advancing extra bases.

Something like a fine gabardine?"
"Uh huh," the coxswain beamed.
Try this--take 5.95 down to the nearest men's store and
get a Van Heusen Van Gab. It's the best-looking
gabardine sportshirt you've ever owned and it's completely
washable-any kind of water. What's more, it's got real
