Jesse Owens, internationally known for his a thleti c achievements, and outstanding and avid crusader of humanitarian causes will address the I 9 7 3 0 Herbein College Commencement on June 1, 11: 30 a.m . at Memorial Stadium. The Baccalaureate for the Class of 1973 is scheduled for 9 a.m. of the same morning. In inclement weather, ceremonies will be held in Cowan Hall. Owens will address his audience with "Education and Open Doors". Presented the Doctor of Athletic Arts by his alma mater, Ohio State University in 1973, Jesse Owens is recognized for his many services to his fellow man which are "deserving of the highest honor and respect". At the 1936 Olympic games held in Berlin, Germany, Mr. Owens gained international repute with a dramatic victory that set new Olympic records and gave him the title "the world's fastest human" . He won individual titles in the l 00 meter and 200 meter dashes and the broad jump as well· as setting the pa on the relay team. garnering hun four gold medals in all. It is considered unlikely that any single Olympic contestant will match his accomplisment because of the athletic specialization required in Ol ympic track and field events. Mr Owens is now better known for his "Jesse Ownes Image", that of a superior athlete and dedicated human being who could talk eloquently and sincerely about America and the Olympic spirit. Author of three books, The Jesse Ownes Story, Blackthink, and I Have Changed, he has demonstrated his perpetual concern with underprivileged youth throughout the world and has been cited many times for his continuing interest in the South Side Boy's Club of Chicago. In 1955, the Department of State sent him on a 62-day tour of the Far East to conduct youth sports clinics. A recipient of the 0 SU A 1u mni Association Citizenship Award in 1965, he continues to make numerous public appearances before youth groups. An "immoderate moderate" of the Black Movement here in the United States and throughout the world, Owens says in I Have Changed he hoped "to create a new island for that uncommitted center which hadn't known which way to turn." His deep interest is with the ''Human Spectrum" had caused him to hope for a "third position", but in his latest publication, he comes to the realization that there can be "no third position". While there remains in the world a lack of

opportunity for young people who live in ghettos and while an "idea like the ideas which bred Hitler" is possible in the world, there is no third position. To Owens this will not be possible until like Emerson, men learn to believe that "what you feel in your heart is true for all men". "Respect" is the emotion and

the cause of which Jesse Ownes has committed his life. For the ''world's fastest human", the greatest life lesson he has learned is ''that every human being deserves respect simply because he is a human being. Everyone has some Hitler in him ... and if anything can drive that out, change us for the better, it starts with respect."

The coverage will be delayed serveral hours sb it will appear during "prime time" on educational television channels across the nation. The National Public Affairs Center for Television (NPACT), the special events programming arm of PBS, will produce the programs which are scheduled to begin on May 15. Each hearing should last four or five hours and transmission to the nation's 234 public television stations will commence at 8 p.m. EDT during the five to ten days of the committee's first session. The committee is expected to hold a second series of hearings after a break of several weeks, but no determination has yet been made as to whether or not those later hearings would be broadcast in their entirety.

NEW MAGAZINE TO PUBLISH STUDENT WRITING The New Writer, a magazine exclusively to quality short stories by student authors and offering a paying market for novices, will be published this fall in New York City. The magazine, while focusing on fiction, also will include an open forum for reader views, interviews and profiles of teachers and students, and articles by instructors and notables in the literary field. The New Writer is being published by Constance Glickman, instructor, journalist, author and Gladys Gold, journalist and author. "We believe encouraging talented new writers, and developing critical readers of the short story to be the best way to revitalize the whole fiction field," state the publishers. Stories from students enrolled in any college, university, community writer's workshop or writer's groups within institutions, adult education and continuing education programs will be considered for publication.

Final selections of short stories for each issue will be made by a board of prominent educators and editors directed by Alice S. Morris, former chief literary editor of Harper's Bazaar and instructor of writers at the New School for Social Research in New York.

Information concerning subscriptions and rules for submission of manuscripts may be obtained by writing to the publishers of The New Writer at Workshop Publications, 507 Fifth Avenue, New York , N.Y. 10017.

May Day brings madness May 19th, mark that date on your calendar. That is the day that this campus will witness the ext rem es of frivolity in the Greek games to the serious anticipation of the crowning of the 1973 May Queen. The morning will begin with a strawberry breakfast sponsored by Rho Kappa Delta. At 10:00 a.m. retiring queen Miss Evon Lineburgh will crown one of these four, Miss Linda Bechtel, Miss Leslie Burrell, Miss Dee Hoty, or Miss Rosanne Meister. The queen and court will then reign over the day's festivities. During the coronation, the best decorated dorm will be announced and a surprise will be

in store for all. The organizations on campus have their chance to get even with all, as booths range from a dunking machine, to a jail, to a pie throwing booth. At 1:30 p.m. the Greeks will challenge one another in games and relays for the May Day trophy. The evening will end with the Otterbein College Theatre's production of "Canterbury Tales". Throughout the day. sororities and fraternities will be having open houses and teas for all the returning alumni and guests. This May Day will be unique! There will be something for everybody. Come participate or watch Otterbein's "Timeless Tales of Canterbury".

17, 18 and 19, the musical adaptation of four of his wittiest st or i e s seeks to answer the timeless question. "We cannot love a husband who takes charge ... we like to be at large!" one of the women answers in the Wife of Bath's Tale. The contemporary musical adaptation of the medieval tales is as colorful and lively as when Chaucer wrote his collection of the perennial progeny of men and women. Translated by Nevill Coghill from the original Old English, they retain the humorous perception and the flavor and rhetoric which has made them classic for seven centuries of literature. There is a dramatic illusion of tellers within the framework of their hilarious tales. There is the Miller, "very drunk and rather pale, straddled on his horse half-on, half-off," old January and his young wife May; the lusty Wife of Bath, "a worthy woman all her life, what's more She'd had five husbands," and there is the Steward (Reeve), "old and choleric and thin ... no auditor could gain a point on him." With the other pilgrims from the Tabbard Inn they travel to Canterbury , telling their stories to amuse one another along the way. "They are alive as people because they are made alive by Chaucer, " Dr. James Bailey, who has taught "The Canterbury Tales" says. "We see a complete world, a world which gives lie to the notion that medieval people are different from us." "The Canterbury Tales" is taught in English classes of almost every college in the country, and in many high schools. The already funny stories with dialogue sensitive to the poetry come alive accompanied by music, costumes and staging. We see segments of every society, from the rogue to the righteous, the learned to the ignorant. There are idealized types and romantic types, but all are realistic and delightful to see and hear. In the musical production of "Canterbury Tales" we find on stage a scholarly work which retains its classicism and is a vehicle of pure entertainment. Bawdy but beautifully sentimental, lyric and lusty, it is a musical which should leave its audiences laughing at Chaucer's world, because they identify it with their own. ''Canterbury Tales" at Otterbein College is directed by A. Richard Nichols, guest director and assistant professor at the Ohio State University. Musical director is Lyle T. Barkhymer and choral director, William A. Wyman.

Letters to the Editor Policy

\ The Tan and Cardinal Cookbooks for encourages students, faculty, 1he soul With this issue of the Tan and Cardinal, I restfully step aside from my position as editor. Filling the void for the next three weeks and all of next year will be Robert Ready, current assistant editor. Bob is quite experienced for the job and I believe that he will do a fine job. Which raises the question in my mind: How much of a job is this? Well, to me, I must admit that the situation was too absurd to warrant any illusions of being the editor of an actual newspaper. As Rev. Bauer so eloquently puts it in his letter-a Weekly Reader. My own term was bulletin board. I rejected this idea at first, thinking that Otterbein could be home to a real live muckraking exciting rag. Only the latter term can be true, however. And this is not the fault of anyone who might be or has been on the staff of the Tan and Cardinal; it is an intrinsic characteristic of Otterbein. There just is not anything of any great and lasting importance here to justify or cause there to be a conscientious journalistic effort on anyone's part. The newspaper is said somewhere to reflect the area in which it is a part of, which it covers. I believe that th is yea r's Tan and Cardinal has done just that. And in the best way possible. I would like to thank all those who helped in the weekly making of this paper; their names appear below in the staff box. Without their help, things would have been worse than they are. So with all t hat out of the way, I would like to leave wi th one part ing quotation: "The objective of all dedicated school employees should be to thoroughly analyze all situatio ns, anticipat e all problems prior to their occu re nce, have answers fo r these problems, and move swi f t ly t o solve these problems when called upon ... However . .. when you are up to your arse in all igat ors, it is difficult to remind yourself that your initial objective was to drain the swamp." -D.B.

To the Editor: For the past few weeks, the editorial page of the campus .

All you have suceeeded in doin is heightening y ou~ ow! absurdity . Y o u r arguement becomes more ridiculous when you cite sources that lived hundreds of years and thousands of miles away from Jesus and whose work on him you accept as irrevocable law. It seems you first chose a point of view and ~en grasped for straws to prop 1t up, hardly a result of intellect. Miss Heine, in her letter suggests t hat Mr. McKinnis~ effectively refutes Mr. Graves' statement that "the historicity of the cr u cifixion and resurre ction of Christ is a peculiar obsession of narrow theolo gy p ossessed by an attempt to 'prove' that it has a monopoly on the market of truth." It would seem that upon exami n ation, however, Mr. McKi n niss' letter stands as evid ence in support of Mr. Graves' hypothesis. He devotes the bulk of his letter citing vague and questionably reliable sources in a desperate attempt to establish as historical fact an event without proof, of which his arguement becomes self-defeating. Of all the world mythologies, great and small, it is peculiar only to the religions of the Levant to base their authenticity on the historical as opposed to the mythological or "once-upon-a-time" event. This is precisely their failure . Rather than leading us to "the way which cannot be named" , they instead rehash the same old rituals of the Heiratic City-state era in cr o n ological fashion, becoming in essence, cookbooks for the soul. Ad di ti onally , Miss Heine's assertions th ro u gh the unrenowned Owen Thomas that Christianity is the " perfected expression of religion" is simply absurd. She is entitled to such a naive opinion, but let me suggest that no single myth is complete, perfect or even most desireable; rather each offers something in a way that no other myth does.

by Patty Artrip At graduation time, many women are faced with the question that has not until this time entered their minds and that is "What do I hope to become and why?" As the wedding will be next month, a woman's thoughts turn to her life as wife and mother. In view of the fact that her father has now spent $13,000 for her college education , a housewife-to-be must look rationally at how her college education has prepared her for what she hopes to become. Many of her courses will be beneficail and relevant to her sitaution. First of all, psychology courses will aid immensely in raising the children. No longer will the mother have to spank her children or even to raise her voice to them for she can use techniques of applied psychology and reason with the children. Also, no longer will the wife have to endure long, senseless, and rowdy fights with her husband because psychology will aid her to handle her emotions and to cope with hostility. One task that all housewives must deal with is that of the grocery shopping. This is where

English courses are most valuable to the housewife. She has learned how to express herself creativly in writing so that her answers to chain letters are most enlightening. She speaks the proper grammer so that her children are not brought up speaking poorly. English courses have also taught her that reading books is good when you're in college. She never thought about reading anything now .. . it's not required. The college-graduated house wife is most grateful for the foundation she has acquired through her religion courses. She understands the need for her children to be brought up with religion and the teachings of the church. Combining the things she learned in fashion designing in home economics, she is able to sew the latest outfits to show off on Sundays at chruch. Yes, our housewife is a well-rounded individual.

Those were the days, mused Stoquely, when, at the touch of a button, the rear windows of his Coupe de Ville were draped with leapard-skin curtains and the front seat fully reclined. That option proved . handy at drive-in movies. He recalled with a chuckle how, on his first day at college he mistakenly strolled into Barlow Hall during a Senate meeting and was automatically elected to the Publications Board. And the girls- oh, such magnificent specimens of femininity, from the neck down-who constantly caressed the glassy fins of his Coupe de Ville, secretly hoping this would be their Saturday to cruise with Stoquely to the Castle or the Sugar Shack. Now those days were gone forever, he thought, leaning on the rail of his tenth floor balcony. He thought of his old roommate, Oracle Roberts, roaring around the nation in his Aaron's Rod.

Heavey announces WOBN staff Empty This week campus radio station manager, Thom Heavey, announced the appointment of WOBN's staff for next year. As with the entire structure of WOBN, next years's staff will be larger and more encompassing. Instead of one station manager bearing the majority of the responsibility , next year's staff will be headed by two seniors. Gar Vance will fill the General Manager's job while Brett Moorehead , former Sports Director, will fill the position of Station Manager. Filling the increasingly important job of Program Director will be another senior, Joe Casa, whose dramatic if no t informative newscasts added depth to Module 3' s late night news. Joe will be ably assisted by four brand new module directors. Senior Joe Humphreys will head up Module Zero, which plays morning music from 7- 10 :45 a.m. ; Tom Korosei signs back on with the management responsibility of Module One at 4:00 p.m. ; sophomore Len Robinson will organize Module Two, which will continue the MOR format until 10 p.m.; heading Module Three will be junior ·Geoff Mayfield , former Music Director, who should be in line for a manager's position his senior year. Rounding out the programming department will be Thom Hastings with the heavy responsibility of News Director, and Kathy Ruch, who will be WOBN's first female Sports Directress. Filling positions which directly support the station's smooth operation are Sam Militello who will be WOBN's Public Relations and Campus Events Director. WOBN, though strong in enthusiasm, lacks equipment repair and maintenance on a scheduled basis. This is why sophomore Rick "Gnik" Taylor has been given the responsibility to keep WOBN's equipment on the air. Two more ladies have been chosen to head the ev e r - expanding Music Department at the station. They are Terry Hules and Sandy Bi ddle stone who have been heard in the early morning hours on Module Zero . With the greater importance the media is playing in the


development of our society, more and more talented young individuals are being trained. With the new dimensions communications is taking, stations like WOBN are providing the education and facilities which only the students can improve. Be assured that under the leadership of these individuals, Otterbein can anticipate another year of growth and stabilization on WOBN. Though small in size, it has enough power to stir an individual's mind to think and ambition to erow.

ROTC AXED AT DENISON (CPS)-The board of trustees of Denison University has ordered the termination of ROTC on campus. At theri April 14 meeting, the board directed the president of the school, Joel P. Smith, to begin negotiations with the U.S . Air Force for the orderly termination of the military training program. The move was the result of a revision of Air Force "productions quotas" requiring a specific number of graduates each year. The board felt it would be impossible to meet the new quotas. They also felt that the end of the Selective Service draft calls would cause further decline in enrollments in the program, making the quotas unreachable. Another concern of the board's was the unfairnessof permitting new students to enroll in the ROTC program when the eventual termination of the program seemed inevitable due to the impossibility of fulfilling the Air Force quotas. President Smith said the termination would proceed "on terms which best protect the interests of those students now enrolled in the program." The board was to consider a proposal to remove academic credit from the campus ROTC program at its meeting. One of the proponents of the proposal said that in light of the new circumstances it would be "pointless" to pursue the issue.

Walters resigns fr001 system Dr. L.W.C. Walters, PDS, JV, IUD, has finally stated in a can did interview with this reporter that he feels the system is "ineffective". Dr. Walters was questioned in his home late last night. For the past three to four years, he couldn't remember exactly, Dr. Walters has been an en tegral part of the current system. At the time, he was bound by an oath of secrecy never to speak of the system, per se. But just recently, however, Dr. Walters found himself in a unique position. We received word. of his

recent position from our various sources throughout the community and eventually got around to following up on the tip. It was at this time when this reporter stopped by Dr. Walters residence while on the the way for coffee. In the interview, Dr. Walters not only stated that the system was ineffective, but also revealed that it actually did not exist. When asked to explain the statement, Walters smiled and said, "If you don't know, I ain't tellin' ." A grand jury investigation is a possibility, but not likely.

Dr. Lyle T. Barkhymer, assistant professor of music at Otterbein College, will present a Clarinet Recital on May 23, 8: 15 p.m. in Lambert Hall Memorial Auditorium. The public is welcome, no admission charge. Program for the recital includes the "Sonata" by Martinu, "Grand Duo Conertante" by Weber, "Three Grotesques" by Jettel, and ''Marchenerzahlungen" by Schumann. Dr. Barkhymer is associate director of the Concert Band and Wind Ensemble and music director of the Otterbein College Theatre production "Canterbury Tales". A graduate with the D.M. and M.M. from Indiana University, he has also been associated with the American Wind Symphony of Pittsburgh. He has studied with Professor Jettel at the Hochschule fur Musik in Vienna. The "Grotesques" which Barkhymer will perform are written for clarinet alone. Marchenerzahlunger (fairy tales) are rarely performed pieces for clarinet, viola or violin and piano. Dr. Barkhymer will offer Schumann's next to last composition, written during his last creative period and coinciding with the visit of the young Brahms to the Schumann household. The Grand Duo is Weber's only piece originally for the clarinet-piano combination and features virtuoso passages at the keyboard.



Lyle Barkhymer

Martinu is a delightful modern Czech composer, and the piece on the recital program features complex rhythms, unusual effects of tremolo in the clarinet and 1£.ting melodies.

For the recital, Dr. Barkhymer will be assisted at the piano by Mary Rucker, and Wybo van Biemen, violinist, members of the Otterbein College department of music.

STUDENTS SHOW MORE CONCERN (J.P. )-The trend toward individual fulfillment and self-development among college students appears to be growing stronger with every entering freshman class. Young people no longer view college as a transition to adulthood. They consider themselves adults, who happen to be college students. "I think there's no question that college and university students are showing more concern for their physical environment and also for the social and political enviornment in which they live and do their work," observes Dr. Ronald M. Brown, vice president for student affairs at The University of Texas, Austin. Dr. Brown recently joined Dick Benson, president of student government, and David Powell, editor of The Daily Texan, to discuss changes in student attitudes and concerns

on '' Insight: Tomorrow's University," a weekly radio series of the University of Texas. Commenting on changes in student government activities on college campuses across the nation, Benson stated: "Over the past two or three years, there has been an increasingly intense demand on the part of students that student government become more competent and more directed toward pertinent and important aspects of their lives. "Consequently, we've become extremely involved inlocal political situations. We've set up lobby organizations, and we've looked for ways to utilize the students' economic resources. So we've taken a turn toward much more serious kinds of activities that are involved in the students' whole lives, rather than simply university or classroom affairs." Powell adds that student

newspapers from around the country are also reflecting off-campus interests, particularly in political areas. The two student leaders mention particular efforts under way by the UT Austin student government organization and campus newspaper, including the establishment of a new legislative district, aimed at increasing effective student input in important legislative decisions. Benson described a current effort by the UT Austin student government to "gather together the economic resources of the university community" called the "University Economic Community" project. "I think we've got a handle on something that's going to eventually turn, out to be a really important new aspect of the community," says Benson. "As I Continued on 6

Golfers eye NCAA Friday May 5 was one of the worst days, weather wise, Spring has had to offer this year but it was one of the best days this season for Otterbein golfers. On that day, the Ohio Conference Championships were held at Reid Memorial Park in Springfield. After eighteen holes, the Otters were tied for third place with Ohio Wesleyan behind Wooster and Wittenberg. On the second round, the team made up fifteen strokes as they passed Witt en berg to finish second behind Wooster. Individually, Mike Darrell was low for the Otters with 155 strokes for 36 holes. This was also good enough for Mike to finish as runner-up to the medalist for the day. Duffy Oelberg finished with 156 which was good enough for a tie for third and Gary Condit, a freshman, shot 157 for a fifth place finish. Other members of the team were Mark Williamson, Gary Benadum and Mike Springer. The Otters next match is today against Wittenberg and Denison at Wittenberg. Monday

the team travels ot the Columbus Country Club to play Capital and Ohio Wesleyan. Anyone interest in seeing the Otters play Monday is more than welcome. The match starts at 1 P.M. If you can't make it that early, watch the Otters play the back nine at about 3 P.M. Such a high finish in the

Conference gives the team a chance for a bid to the NCAA championships in California. The one thing that hurts the team is its mediocre record of 5 wins and 5 losses. Whatever happens, the team has proven that it can come through when the chips are down-the sign of a GOOD team.

Continued from 5 understand it, it is not being done or never has been done anywhere. But what I think it will ultimately culminate in is a student-run and student­ controlled .financial enterprise on the scale of a credit union or a mutual savings and loan or a commercial bank. ·

"And I don't think any of those things are impossible. We have the resources in terms of money, in terms of numbers, in terms of legal expertise, in terms of just raw political connections." Benson adds that the successful establishment of such an economic organization among students would provide them with a valuable sense of competency, a sense of themselves as responsible citizens actively involved in their community. Both Powell and Benson cite two factors which have pushed this generation of college students to demand that their student governments, newspapers, and leaders become politically capable: frustrations resulting from ineffective attempts to influence political decisions; and the assurance of the 18-year-old vote, which granted them some voice in political affairs .

Curts The mark of a championship team is the ability to come back and this past week Otterbein's baseball team has done just that. As a result the squad is now 7-4 overall and 5-2 in the league, right behind Marietta, 8-1. Last Saturday, in a tricky wind, the Cardinals played Marietta in crucial doubleheader. Otterbein wanted to win two but had to have one. In the first game, Gary Curts pitched a four-hitter but lost 2-0. The first run scored on a misjudged fly ball and the second came on a home run by Terry Malavite that tipped the left fielder's glove before falling over the fence. Neal Parsley picked up his sixth victory in as many starts for the Pioneers. In the second game, things looked bleak again as the visitors held a 1-0 lead on an unearned run in the third. Then in the bottom of the seventh, the final inning of the game, Steve Mott drew a walk with one out. After a dispute foul ball, Dan Jarlenski singled and Bob Buchan, pinch-hitting for the pitcher, singled home the tying run. Jim · Chamberlain with the infield drawn in then singled in pinchrunner Scott Reall with the winning run . Jim Inniger, who pitched a four-hitter, upped his record to 3-0 as the Otters kept alive league hopes. In Springfield on Wednesday, Otterbein came from behind twice to win 8-5 . Gary Curts having unusual control problems spotted two runs early, but in the fifth the Otters went ahead with Jim Chamberlain's triple being the big hit. Then in the eight, the Tigers went ahead again on a tremendous two-run home run by Doug Heskett and later picked up an additional run. In the ninth, however, the otterbein bats took over. After scoring one run and with two men still on, Dick Byers hit a ball over the center fielders head for an inside the park home run. Six of the last seven batters in the ninth got hits to add insurance , and in alI; every starter got at least one hit. The victory evened Curts' pitching record at 3-3.

But their conference mark stands at 8-1, with the Otters nipping at their tail in second place. That one conference loss for Marietta came at the hands of Otterbein, and the Cardinals' two deficits were pinned by the Pioneers-all three meetings of the two teams were decided by one run.

Oberlin's track program is all ready showing the effects of having the world record holder Tommie Smith as their new track mentor. The Otters were a lit t 1e surprised by the inprov~ment in Oberlin even since the indoor season. Roger Retherford continued to pace all scorers with four wins for the Otters. Roger won the long jump, the 120 high hurdles, the triple jump, and 440 intermediate hurdles. Other winners for Otterbein were: Dale Chittum in the shot put, Mike Westfall in the 440, Bruce Schneider in the pole vault, Guy Dittoe in the 880, Scott Miller in the discus, and the Otterbein mile relay team comprised of Randy Evans, Guy Dittoe, Bob Long, and Mike Westfall.

While avenging an earlier loss to Denison, the Otters dropped the meet to OWU, which the Otters had defeated earlier in the season. With a very fine day the Otters posted several season's best performances and two records. Allan Brown doubled in the mile and the three mile and ran a 4:37 mile and a 15:26 three mile , which are both personal best for Allan. Tim Wile posted his best ever half mile time as he ran 1:56.9. Guy Dittoe continued his fine running in the half mile as he posted a season's best of 1: 54.9. This time is only one tenth of a second off the school record that Guy set last year. The two school records were provided by Bob Long and Charlie Ernst in the one and three mile runs. Bob Long lowered the school mark from 4:20 to 4: 17 .6 and Charlie reset the school three mile mark at 14:45.9. Two other fine performances by the Otters were Scott Miller's put of 44'6½" in the shot and Mike Westfall's season best of 49.8 in the 440.

In their last meet of the season the Otters defeated the Capital Crusaders 96 to 40 last Tuesday. After all most being rained out, the meet proceeded with intermittent rain. The Otters performances were paced

by Randy Evans who qualified for the conference 440 and Jeff Cox who qualified in the 440 intermediate hurdles. In the lopsided affair, Otterbein swept the mile, 100, 880, and the 220. First place finishers for Otterbein were; Roger Retherford in the long jump, 120 HH, triple jump, and the 440 IH; Charlie Ernst in the mile, Mike Westfall in the 440 where he recorded his best time of the year 49.7; Scott Hartman in the I 00; Guy Dittoe in the 880; Scott Miller in the discus, Jim Cox in the 220, Allen Brown in the 3 mile; and both of the Otter's relay teams. Guy Dittoe's 1:54.7 sets a new school record in the half. Guy had set the old school record last year at 1: 54.8. This new mark wipes all of the old school records in the distances off the boards. Bob Long earlier reset the mile mark at 4: 17.6, Charlie Ernst had earlier reset the three mile mark at 14:45.9. The Otters head into the conference meet this weekend with 22 qualifiers. During the outdoor season just ended the Otters managed to qualify 2 athletes for 31 positions in the conference meet being held this weekend at B.W. on Friday and Saturday.
