Iowa Contest Reveals Major Faults

Gray, 'M' Middle-Distance Runner,
Continues To Smash Track Records

In First Place Quarter Finals

By JIM BAAD
Pete Gray, who made his track
debut at Michigan two years ago
by breaking the freshman indoor
half mile mark, has kept up his
record-smashing pace.
Last year he ran the nation's
second fastest outdoor half mile
in 1:52.1, tied Illinois ace Gene
Maynard in 1:52.4 for the fastest
American time run by a sopho-
more, and at the annual Coliseum
Relays at Los Angeles he stepped
y off the third leg in the two mile
relay in a phenomenal unofficial
time somewhere between 1:47.6
and 1:48.2.
On Relay Team
He was also a member of the
Wolverine two mile relay team
that set the 1954 indoor mark of
7:39.3 at the 14th annual Knights
of Columbus meet in Boston.
This season it appears that Gray
is not letting up, as he broke the
11-year old meet record against
Notre Dame in a 1:54.5 effort, and
just last week against Michigan
State Normal he clipped 1.1 sec-
onds off the Yost Field House
mark.
Gray started his running career
as a sophomore in high school in
St. Petersburg, Florida. His high
schoolucoach, Phil Knuth, picked
him out of a gym class and gave
him a try. Gray proved himself
worthy of his coach's confidence by
2becoming the Florida State cross-
country champion in his junior
year.
"This was my greatest thrill in
high school track," says Gray.
"The high spots so far of my
college running came at the Coli-
seum in Los Angeles, and when I

tied Maynard in last year's Illinois
meet. The relay leg at the Colise-
urn is probably the best race I
have ever run."
Hails From Florida
Gray came to Michigan all the
way from Florida because he
"wanted to run in the Big Ten, and
Michigan's academic standing was
hard to beat."
Another thing that brought
Gray's attention to focus on Ann
Arbor was the infiurnce of high
school track coach Knuth. Knuth,
a Western Michigan graduate,

Wolverine track coach Don Can-
ham. "Knuth made me a track
man, and now Canham is polish-
ing me up*" said Gray is summing
up the twd mentors' contributions.
Gray believes that track is the
greatest individual sport there is
for both fan and athlete. He says
he draws immeasurable satisfac-
tion out of running. "Another
thing I like is the people you meet
in this sport," says Gray. "I nev-
er met a track .nan I didn't like."
Stresses Mental Preparedness
Although he has performed best
in the 880, Gray does not prefer
it over any other middle distance
race or even the mile. He thinks
the half mile is easiest to plan and
really the easiest to run, but that
all of them are based on mental
preparedness. His philosophy of
running hinges on this fact. He
feels that any average runner in
the right state of mind can run
an outstanding race.
Gray has problems practicing
regularly since his job at Health
Service occupies' much of his time.
"I get down to the Field House as
often as I can and concentrate on
sprinting, mostly repeated run-
ning of 220's," he said.

much to do with Gray's decision.

running career are Knuth and

Michigan's basketball hopes, so
bright a few weeks ago, have tar-
nished greatly in the interim
period.
At the half-way mark in the
Big Ten race the Wolverines held
down a first division slot with four
victories in eight conference tilts.
Today, the Maize and Blue are in
the throes of a slump, having lost
their last four games, the last one
at the hands of Illinois Monday
night, 81-75. Michigan is now
lodged in seventh place.
The Iowa contest last Saturday,
which was no contest at all, seems
to give the best indication as to
why the Wolverines have not been
up to par lately. Coach Buddy

Michigan holds the unenviable
distinction of having the worst

Western Conference.
And still another alarming fac-
tor is that Ron Kramer can no

burly 6' 3" center has noticeably
slowed down in the past few
games. One theory presented is
that Kramer, who has been carry-

assistance from his teammates.

are hoping that this aid will soon
