DES MOINES, (JP--Wayne Lyon, Iowa State's Big Six indoor pole vault, champion, will lead a squad of 20' Cyclones at the Drake relays here April 24 and 25. The wiry little 130 pound vaulter, who once performed for Roosevelt high Des Moines, hopes to soar over the bar at 13 feet, 6 inches at the Drake classic. Only'the difference of a hp prevented Lyon from clearing 13 feet, 6 inches at the Texas relays two weeks ago. On his first attempt at that height he nicked the bar with his lip, barely knocking the stick off the standards. His lip was cut open when he hit the bar and he fell hard in the pit, making it impossible to try again at this height. Since Lyon started his collegiate competition he has bettered 12 feet 20 times and 13 feet .five times. Other promising Iowa State entries in the'special events at Drake are Lawrence Minsky, Big Six javelin champion last spring; Capt.
