K-State and Colorado
Tie at Buff Relays
By sniriey Aiurpny
The two Big Seven teams that entered the 27th annual Colo
rado Relays tied for first place in the meet with 14 points apiece.
Kansas State and Colorado had a two point lead on number
three winner Colorado A and M. In the college relay division, Colo
rado came in first in the 440-yard relay. Kansas State was first in
both the two-mile relay and the one-mile relay.
Dick Towers, a sophomore halfback on the K-State football
team last year, is the top 880 runner and a member of the mile
relay team for Coach Ward Haylette's team.
Grid coach Bill Meek has excused him from the last three
weeks of football praces. Towers finished third in the 880 of the
Big Seven indoor track meet and is considered a threat for outdoor
honors if he gets in shape in time. He participated on both the win
ning K-State teams at the Colorado Relays.
The Cyclone golfers won the 1951 Iowa collegiate title and
showed some remarkable improvement. Coach Hugo Otpoalik is
giving his team members a chance to show their competitive talents
against Grinnell and Kansas State this weekend. He wants to check
over some of these surprising youngsters.
Ed Robinson is the leading hitter for the Kansas State base
ball team. The 200-pound outfielder has hit 6 of 15 trips to the plate
for a solid .400 average.
Dick Johnson is the second leading slugger on Coach Ray
Wau their 's club. This veteran outfielder has hit 8 out of 21 times up
at the plate for a .381 average.
Coach Harry Schmidt will use five men in the Big Seven con
test against K-State in tennis Friday. The tennis men are Terry
Smith, Bill Hukill, Dan McEachron, Dean Harper and Sherill Chris-
