Charlie Brookins ' s old record into the gutter when he flew over the low barriers in 22. S. He won his semi-final in 23.3 the day before, and showed that the record was tottering. Eddie Tolan, dusky Michigan star, pulled a surprise in the hundred by beating Simpson in 9.5. Simpson had pointed for the National Collegiate meet, which accounts for his defeat, but he- redeemed himself by winning the furlong in 20.6, tying the world record set in 1926 by Roland Locke. Pete Rasmus won the discus title for the third time. Illinois gathered 51} points to 39! for Ohio. With Stanford missing, Ohio State won the National Collegiate track and field meet at Chi- cago — the first time in several years that the title had not gone to a Pacific coast team. Fift " points were rolled up by the Ohio aces. ' ashington trailing with 42, and Illinois, Western Con- ference champion, placing third with y} - George Simpson won the hundred in 9.4, a new world ' s record, from a tlash - field by inches, and then limped in to a 20.8 victory in the two-twenty after pulling a tendon twenty yards from the finish. If he had not pulled a tendon, he would certainly have battered out a new furlong record, as his finish is always his best bet. Dick Rockaway climbed the high hurdles in 14.7 to be first home, but overconfidence lost him the low. Steve Anderson won them in 23.3, with Rock- away second. His victory in record-breaking time at the Big Ten meet had made Rockaway the favorite in the lows, but Anderson nosed him out. Pete Rasmus, the lanky Finn from Ash- tabula Harbor, chosen honorary captain by tiie letter-men before the team left Columbus, ended his career by winning the discus throw from the greatest field ever assembled . His 159 feet 17-8 inches throw broke the recognized world ' s record, but this had been broken earlier in the year, and so his record will not stand.

(Jeorge Simpson won an exhibition hundred from Pete Bowen of Pitt, Jack Elder of Notre Dame, and Don Bennet of Toledo Libbey High, the National Interscholastic dash champion, now a freshman at Ohio State, and who is expected to fill Simpson ' s shoes. Simpson ' s time was 9.5. The shuttle liurdle team set a new world ' s record of i minute 1.8 seconds, with Dick Rockaway, .M Peiersilge, Kent Crooks, and Frank Pierce making up the timber-topping squad. The sprint relay team won the HSo-yard relay, and was second to Illinois in the quarter-mile relay. .• mistake on the third baton-exchange cost the Ohioans victory in the shorter race, since they were in the lead when it happened. Kriss, Strother, Rockaway, and Simpson made up the winning half-mile relay team. The Ohio sprint relay quartet were victorious in both relays at the Penn Relays. George Simpson beat the best the Kast had to offer in a 9.6 hundred, and won looking over his shoulder. The shuttle hurdle team won its heat in faster time than the final, but a slip caused by wet grass kept the Ohioans out of the finals they could probably have won in a walk. If this meet had been judged on a team basis, Ohio would have won easily, since the Scarlet and Gray entries scored more points than any other team. Because of its wealth of good material in the running events, Illinois won the outdoor Big Ten meet, with Ohio State second. Dick Rockaway won the high hurdles in 14.8, and kicked
