Relay Injury Gives Michigan 75-61 Loss

possible until disaster struck in
the final event.
The Wolverines entered the de-
ciding contests, the mile relay,
trailing 65-61. But a pulled muscle
sustained by Milt Robinson, who
was running the second leg, forced
them out of the race. This en-
abled Illinois to win the meet,
Robinson was running in place
of Don Matheson who had the
flu, and was strictly a last resort
for Coach Don Canham. Robinson
pulled the same muscle last year
in the Big Ten Meet, and unless
absolutely necessary, Canham re-
fuses to run a man who has a
past history of some injury.
Despite being on the losing end
of the score, it was a great team
effort by Michigan., and termed
by Canham'as "as fine a one as
I've ever had."

This was one out of only six
events in which Michigan grabbed
a first place.
The 2 mile run, copped by Dick
Schwartz in 9:41.4 provided the
most excitement for the sparse
crowd. Teammate Don Truex led
the field for the first six laps of
the 16-lap/ race. Schwartz then

Truex for one additional time be-

Mitchell emerged as the meet's
only double winner, capturing the
60-yd. dash handily over Wolver-

settin gtwo records in his special-
ty, the 65-yd. low hurdles. Mitch-
ell's time of :07.3 was both a dual
meet and Yost Fieldhouse record.
One of the most satisfied of
the night's performers was
Mamon Gibson. The slender pole
vaulter set a new personal high

The final Michigan victory was
scored by Pete Stanger in the 65-
yd. high hurdles, as he topped the
timbers in :08.3, just one-tenth
second off the dual meet mark.
Stanger picked up three more
points in a runner-up finish to
Mitchell in the lows.

SHOT STOPPED - Left Wing Gary Mattson (16) drives in on Minnesota goalie John McCartan in
last night's game at the Coliseum. Minnesota wing Murray Williamson (18) is ready to ride Matt-
son out of the play from behind, while his teammate center Mike Pearson (10) skates up to clear
the puck from in front of McCartan. The Gophers waltzed to a 10-5 shellacking of Michigan in the
first of a two game series. The two teams meet again tonight at 8 p.m.
