Favored Runners Face Weaker Bruin Team; Good Middle Distance Clashes Expected
Brown is expected to provide little more than a warm-up for next week's Yale track meet this afternoon in Briggs Cage. The freshmen will also be heavy favorites in their meet against the Brown yearlings.
Despite a lack of team depth, the visitors will not be without individual stand-outs. Walt Molineux, recent winner of the B.A.A. college 880, will be favored to win the mile over the Crimson's Dave Cairns in what should be the best race of the day. Another Bruin star, Gil Borjeson, should have little trouble winning the 35 pound weight throw, and is capable of winning the shot put.
Aside from these two, however, the visitors appear fairly weak. Gene Whitlock could show well in the 600, but Ronnle Berman and Ed Grustsner are expected to take the first two places for the Crimson. Dick DiLugio however is definite threat in the high jump, having bettered six feet two inches twice this year Yale defeated Brown 69 to 30 last week.
Bob Mello, out of the shadow of Bol Richards again, should have no difficulty winning the pole vault; Bob Geick is also top heavy favorite in the broad jump Charlie Durakis and Bob Twitchell could give the Crimson a lot of power in the hurdles.
The freshmen will be without the services of sprinter Herb Collins who was declared ineligible due to a transfer mix-up.
The undefeated Yardling mile relay team of Warren Little, Bob Rittenburg. Paul Grand, and Alan Howe will be going for a new record. The quartet missed the mark last week in the B.A.A. games by 12 seconds.
