Owen Breaks Shot Put Record;
Two Natators Ruled Ineligible

Wolverines'
Owen Stars
Relays
By BOB BOLTON
The brilliant performances of
two men turned the 134th running
of the Michigan State Relays last
Saturday from what could have
been a fairly dull meet into a
fairly excellent one.
Except for the efforts of Wol-
verine track captain Dave Owen
and Olympic Gold Medalist Glen
Davis of Ohio State, Michigan
cinder coach Don Canham termed
the meet, which featured teams
from 18 schools, a mass of medioc-
racy.
Shot Puts 58'10'/"
Owen, whose star continues to
rise to new heights every time he
steps into the shot put circle,
brought the sparse crowd to its
feet with a toss of 58'101".
With Owen's throw a host of
records tumbled. The meet and
field house records were shattered
by better than one ft., the exist-
ing conference indoor and out-
door marks fell.by more than two
ft. margins and press box infor-
mation had it that Owen had un-
officially shattered the collegiate
indoor record for a throw from a
dirt circle.
But not even Owen's perform-
ance could overshadow the feats
of the Buckeye's Davis. The Olym-
pic star, running with a heavily
taped leg, was the day's only
double winner.
Davis Excels
Davis took firsts in the 75-yd.
intermediate hurdles and in the
75 yd. highs. In the intermediates
Davis got off to a slow start but
still managed to nip Aubrey Lewis
of Notre Dame at the wire and in
the process tie the meet record of
:8.3.
Besides Owen two other Wol-
verines also managed first places
in their respective events.
Former Big Ten high jump
champion Mark Booth went over
the bar at 6'5"1

At the same time, three other

100 Meter free style at Melbourne.
Because of the Olympics he had

Wrestlers
GairnThree
Three veteran wrestlers, inac-
tive during the first semester, are
returning just in time to bolster
Coach Cliff Keen's matmen in
what promises to be a rugged last
half season.
Former Big Ten 130-pound
champion Max Pearson, defend-
ing Big Ten 157-pound titlist
Mike Rodriguez, and veteran
heavyweight Steve Zervas have
all regained their eligibility. In
addition, all of the first-semester
squad members apparently will
be returning.
But the Wolverine grapplers,
will be given two severe tests on
this and the following Saturday
by Iowa and Michigan State,
which!Coach Keen calls the "two
toughest teams in the Big Ten."
Between semesters the wrestlers
lost two Big Ten meets, 19-11 to
Illinois, and 18-8 to Purdue. Hard
luck plagued Michigan in the
Purdue meet, as three Wolverines
lost decisions by only one point.
Dan Deppe; wrestling at 130
pounds, won both his matches, as
did defending Conference 177-
pound champion Jack Marchello.
Larry Murray was the other Wol-
verine winner, pinning his Illinois
opponent at 137 pounds.
