PIONEER RELAY TEAM VICTORIOUS OVER BIG FIELD: Ann Arbor High's 880-yard relay team, snapped in action here with only one foot touching the ground, from left to right, Henry Platt, Lee McQuiston, Phil Mercado and Bill Haidler, emerged victorious over more than 20 teams in Saturday's River Rouge Invitational meet in Yost Field House. But the Pioneers nearly chawed their fingernails off before being assured of winning. The event was run off in six sections and Ann Arbor was in the first section. Although the Pioneer club's time was 1:40.1, which is pretty fair, it wasn't so far out of class that victory was certain. So Coach Tim Ryan and the quartet above waited impatiently as section after section reeled by in slower times than 1:40.1.

WELL, I'LL BE DARNED! IT'S STILL RAINING: Ted Judson, Ann Arbor High school track star, looks dejectedly out the door of the Wines Field fieldhouse and wonders how he can get in shape for Saturday's Five-A League meeting set for Wines Field. But, on the right, he proves there's still a grin left as he laces up his shoes and prepares to get out there, rain or no rain. The Pioneers will play host to other teams in the Five-A loop for Saturday's meet which will also serve as a state regional meet. Morning events will begin at 11 o'clock and the afternoon program starts at 2 o'clock. And, as is the custom in the track world, the meet will be held rain or shine or high water. Judson, who hasn't scored less than 15 points in any track meet this year, is expected to lead the field of individual performers here in Saturday's meet.

Relief for Golfers: As every fall golfer knows, leaves add to his links problem once the trees start to shed. But the leaves covering portions of the Municipal Golf Course leave quickly when exposed to the air currents from this blower arrangement which is used at other times for spraying jobs. Here, the blower is clearing the way along the fourth (old 13th) fairway. The Municipal Course, scene of the recent Washtenaw Open which saw Bob McCormick pick up the title held for three years by Howie Slocum, remains open for business--a fact which can be added to the list of unusual November happenings.

Municipal has Driving Net: Golfers who hate to chase their hooks or slices all over the landscape can perfect their swing and rhythm at the Municipal Golf course where J. M. Dand, club manager, has erected a driving cage. Ernie Wright, 117 West Summit St., is shown above practicing his drives in the all-metal cage which is 20 feet long, 10 feet high and 10 feet wide. At the rear of the cage is a padded cushion, on which is inscribed a target. For the privilege of hooking or slicing 35 times it only costs one 25 cents (the charge to take care of the construction of the outfit) and after it is all over one doesn't have to walk more than 20 feet to retrieve the beaten pellets.

The pre-cast concrete panels forming the floor are shown above. When sealed in place, the floor panels will form ducts on their under-surfaces through which hot air can be forced, thus providing radiant heating for the homes.
