Special to The Daily
EAST LANSING - Michigan's
tracksters could cop only two first
places yesterday as Kansas' fabu-
lous Wes Santee stole the show in
the 32nd annual Michigan State
Y Relays.
The Kansas distance ace spark-
ed a pair of relay teams to new
records, the highlight coming in
the distance medley where San-
tee sped the anchor mile in a
sensational 4:02.6 to give his team
a new American record.
PUNCTUATING the two-day
track extravaganza was the accu-
sation last night by Wolverine
coach Don Canham that Spartan
mentor Karl Schlademan "went
against his word" by not entering
a strong team in the distance
medley relay.
Canham claimed that he and
Schlademan had a "gentleman's
agreement" to field strong teams
against the Kansas powerhouse
in the distance medley "for the
good of track." The Michigan
roach indicated that he felt it
r was better to give the fans the
best races possible rather than
spread the. talent among the
various events.
As it was the Wolverines were
left holding the bag as the San-
tee-sparked Jayhawk outfit ran
away from Michigan in the dis-
tance medley, while Schlademan
packed his top men into the two-
mile and sprint relays with the
excuse that his team should "look
good" before the home folks.
The tables were turned, how-
ever, when a Wolverine team of
George Lynch, Roy Christianson,
John Moule, and Pete Gray won
the two-mile event by 20 yards

whlie other Illini winners were
Wilie Williams in the 75 yard
dash, Ralph Fessenden in the
300 yard run, and Willard
Thomson who tied the mheet
standard of :09.1 in the 75 yard
high hurdles.
One of the most exciting events
of the night was the sprint med-
ley relay in which Kansas, with
Santee anchoring once again,
came from behind to nip Michigan
State at the wire and set a meet
and fleldhouse record of 3:28.7.
Michigan came in a poor fourth
in the event.

MICHIGAN hopes received a
blow when Canham announced
that Ross McNab, a promisingI
sophomore sprinter who had been
counted on in the mile relay,
would be out for an indefinite per-

MULLEN, who assisted on all;
three of Chin's goals as well as'
on Pat Cooney's in the first per-:

with six points as he bagged a
pair of goals himself.

scorer on the Wolverines to
date, added his 23rd and 24th
goals of the campaign as he

open game.
Cooney s goal in the final min-
ute of the opening period increas-
ed the Michigan margin to 2-0 at
the first intermission, but Cheddy'
Thompson's Colorado sextet wast-
ed little time in tieing it up.
BOB ROMPRE tallied the first
only :25 after the middle session
opened as he banged home line-
mate Clare Smith's direct pass-
out from a face-off deep in the
Wolverine end. Smith set up the
second tally less than two min-
utes later as he fed Ed Ribson a
perfect goal mouth pass.
From that point on it was all
Michigan as Chin started the ball
rolling for the Wolverines. The
9-2 win, combined with Friday
night's 5-1 victory, gives Michigan
a sweep of the series and seven
victories in a row.
Next week-end the Wolverines
engage Michigan State's Spartans
in a home-and-home series. Fri-
day's game will be at East Lansing
with Saturday's contest here at
the Coliseum.
