AAU's Director Praises U.S.
Track Team--Blasts NCAA

MAJOR LEAGUE ROUNDUP
McCraw's Hit Beats L.

SAN FRANCISCO (P)-Col. Don
Hull, executive director of the
Amateur Athletic Union, said yes-
terday the United States men's
track team which faces the Rus-
sians this weekend will be the
strongest ever.
"I feel we will defeat the Rus-I
sian men by as big a margin as we
ever have," he declared during a
San Francisco stopover while en
route to Los Angeles where he will
observe the meet.
He said the U.S. has improved
particularly in the distance events
where the Russians have been
strong in past years.
The greatest point difference in
t he international competition
which started in 1958 was the 21
points by which the United States
men won the 1962 meet at Stan-
ford by a 128-107 count. Twice
they won it by 19 points but last
year the margin was only 119-114.
United States men never have
been defeated by the Russians but
Uncle Sam's women never have
won and last year were over-
whelmed at Moscow, 75-28.
"I'll guarantee the women will
do better than last year," Hull
declared. "Our women's team is!
stronger although we don't have
the individual star we had when
Wilma Rudolph was running."
Other Hull observations:
"I think we choose our Olympic
track team the wrong way. In-
stead of basing it on a single per-
formance in the Olympic trials, I
believe there should be a series
of competitions similar to the
actual Olympics where athletes
must run heats. Our team should
be picked from the same type of
competition the athletes face in
the Olympics.-. -
"The NCAA has publicly stated
'all hell will break loose' on Nov.
1 when it will do all it can to
destroy the AAU. The NCAA
might as well try to destroy the
Church. Our volunteer organiza-
tion serving the youth of the na-
tion will remain.
"Their big artillery is firing
blanks. There is nothing the
NCAA can do except cause trouble.
We are doing and will continue to
do a job encompassing everyone."

Hurt Leg Pulls Hayes Out
Of U.S.S.R. Track Match

C

LOS ANGELES (P)-The Unitedv
States will meet Russia this week-
end without the services of the
world's fastest dash man, injured
Bob Hayes of Florida A. & M.
But American track buffs still
retained hopes for a U.S. victory.
It would be the first victory in
total score since the annual USA-
USSR meets began six years ago.
Hayes, 21, was scratched from
the U.S. team yesterday by head
coach Sam Bell because of an in-
jury to his left leg.
"We feel there is a real good
chance of furthersinjury to his
leg if he competes," Bell said,
"and we don't believe that we
should take that chance."
Hurt at AAU
Hayes, holder of the world's
100-yard dash record at 9.1 sec-
onds, hurt the leg smashing into a
retaining wall after winning the
100-meter race in the National
AAU meet four weeks ago at Rut-
gers University.
He had to pass the Olympic
qualifying semifinals in New York
a week later. He will still get a
chance to make the Olympic team,
however, at the final trials here
Sept. 12-13.
Hayes won the 100-meter race
against the Russians in meet-rec-
ord time of 10.2 seconds in 1962
and 1963. He was on the winning
400-meter relay team in the 1962
meet and also on last year's relay
team, which was disqualified after
finishing first for passing the
baton early on one of the ex-
changes.
Moon Subs
Hayes will be replaced on this
year's relay team by John Moon
of the U.S. Army. Coach Bell said
Hayes' substitute for the 100
meters will be announced this af-
ternoon. The other U.S. entry in
the 100 meters is Bernie Rivera,
who has a best time of 10.3 in the
event.

Moon has a best time of 9.3 for
100 yards and may also get the
nod for the dash.
The U.S. men's team has never
lost to the Russians and the U.S.
women's team has never won-or
even come close.
This year, the American
women's team is said to be strong-
er than at any time sincethe
first USA-USSR meet in 1958,
when it lost 44-63.
If they can cut the margin to
under 20 points again, the Ameri-
cans figure to make it close on
total score.
