Although obviously well below what might baye been hoped, the soggy conditions brought on by day-long drizzle were taken in stride by the six university teams who turned in rather remarkable .performances under the circumstances. "It wasn't too bad," commented super-star Randy Matson of Texas AM who, as usual, won the shot put and discus despite treacherously .wet throwing rings. "It wasn't that slippery," the tall man said, "but, .of course, it did hold back everyone." Double Winner Matson won the discus with a toss of 176 feet, 11J£ inches, about five feet below last week's first effort of the season; and took the slmt with a put of 62-8, in all .came off their own shoes as Miller walked off with nigh school title with points.
