Fraser Takes Singles Title


PALO ALTO (P)-World record-
holder John Thomas upped his
performance In the high jump to
a remarkable 7'33" as he led 25
American qualifiers in the U.S.
Olympic trials here last night.
Thomas, the teen-age sensa-
tion from Boston University, will
undoubtably get another world
mark for the night's work since
all requirement for the record ap-
parently were met.
Meanwhile several old-timers in
the Olympic picture earned spots
to the Rome-bound plane-some
in spectacular fashion and others
by the skin of their teeth.
Hurdle Champ
Glenn Davis, the ex- O h i o
Stater, was brilliant in the 400-
meter intermediate hurdles which
is the event he won at Melbourne,
Australia, in 1956. Davis, who was
sidelined with a bad back for most
of last season and thought to be
a hopeless case as an Olympic
possibility, was timed at :49.5-
one of the best clockings of all
Three other former Olympic
champs, High Jumper Charlie
Dumas, Shot Putter Parry O'Brien
(who won twice) and Hammer
Thrower Hal Connolly also quali-
Dumas just made it, despite his
spectacular 6'11" leap. He was
last to make it of the three from
each country that are allowed.
Joe Faust, Occidental College

freshman, reached an even seven
feet for second place, while Erroll
Williams of San Jose State and
Sonny Lewis of Grambling, bowed
out at 6'10".
Long Wins
O'Brien pyit the iron ball 62'3%"
to qualify second behind young
Dallas Long, Southern Cal soph-
omore. Long threw 63'3%". Dave
Davis edged Bill Nieder, who has
thrown 65'7", for the third spot.
Connolly was edged by Al Hall
for first place in the hammer, but
made the grade with comparative
While the old-timers were hav-
ing their day, the newcomers also
did their share. Ray Norton, who
hadn't even started to reach his
peak when the last Games were
held, led an action-packed 100-
meter dash field that needed a
half-hour of checking watches be-
fore a photo-finish decision was
Frank Budd, a Villanova sopho-
more, was second and Paul Win-
der of Morgan State tied with
comeback star Dave Sime for
third place.
To Make Trip
Winder and Sime will both
make the trip since a fourth man
is taken in the century sprint for
use on the 400-meter relay team.
The American coaches will decide
later which of the two will run in
the open 100.

-Daily-James Benagh
HEADED FOR ROME?--Ray Norton (right) and Lee Calhoun
appear to be two fellows headed for the Olympic Games in Rome.
Norton won the 100 meter dash while Calhoun will attempt to

qualify today in the 110 meter
Olympic Champion.
But for Sime, just making the
trip is probably enough. He was
a mere fourth in one of the two
qualifying heats-just barely en-
tering the final. Charlie Tidewell
was first in his heat but pulled a
muscle in the final and missed
his opportunity. He was considered
a sure bet.
Another youngster, Ralph Bos-
ton of Tennessee A&I, moved into
the world picture as he led the
broad jumpers with his leap of
26'612". That's less than two
inches off Jesse Owens' world
record. Meanwhile, d e f e n d i n g
Olympic Champ Greg Bell fell to
the wayside as his 25'4" was good
only for fourth place.
Watson Second
Nondescript Anthony Watson,
an Oklahoma freshman, was sec-
ond and Bo Roberson, formerly of
Cornell, third in the trial.
Other first-place finishers were
Al Bantello in the dramatic jav-
elin tryout and Jim Beatty in an
amazing 5,000-meter finish.
Bill Alley of Kansas did 269'-
7%" on his first throw of the
spear and then collapsed on his
second throw with a spike wound.
He had a strained muscle high in
his back and was carried off the
field on a stretcher. However, he
limped back to throw 266'4" but

high hurdles as the defending
Cantello did 277'7" later for the
victory. Another Kansan, Terry
Beucher, was the third qualifier.
Beatty trekked the distance
course (which is over three miles)
in 14:13.6-only two-tenths of a
second better than runner-up Bill
Dellinger, his well-known rival.
Bob Soth also placed.
Others to qualify in the first of
the two-day trials were Cliff
Cushman of Kansas and Dick
Howard of New Mexico, both of
whom followed Davis across the
line in the 400 hurdles. Eddie
Southern, second in the last
Games, was fourth and failed to
earn the trip.
Dick Cephas, the only Wolver-
ine entrant in the meet, was sixth
in one of two elimination heats.
Rex Cawley, the Farmington,
Mich., teenager, reached the final
but didn't place in the top six.
Tonight the nationaly-televised
program includes the 800 meters,
where Charley Dupree of New
Mexico was top-qualifier last night
at a sizzling 1:47.7. Also remain-
ing are finals in the pole vault,
110-meter hurdles, hop-step-jump,
discuss, 400-meter dash. 200-meter
dash and 3,000-meter steeple-
The fourth-place finishers in
all events will serve as alternates.

WIMBLEDON ()-An explosive
service carried Neale Fraser to the
74th Wimbledon championship
yesterday and reaffirmed Aus-
tralia's supremacy in the world
of tennis.
In an all-Australian, all-left-
handed final witnessed by a bevy
of British royalty, the 26-year-old
son of a Melbourne physician tri-
umphed over Queenslander Rod
Laver 6-4, 3-6, 9-7, 7-5.
The match, interrupted by rain
in the third set, got off to a dull
and error-laden start but finished
on a sparkling note with both
player duelling skillfully. Laver's
game obviously was dulled by his
31/2 hour, 86-game doubles mara-
thon of the evening before.
U.S. Hopes Dim
The victory was the fourth in
five years for an Australian and
the final impressiveness of both
the champion and runnerup was
enough to throw heavy gloom over
America's hopes of recapturing
the Davis Cup.
Fraser, who also holds the
United States championship, now
may be hailed as the unchallenged
No. 1 amateur of the world. His
name goes on the champion's roll
beside those of fellow Australians
Lew Hoad, who won in 1956 and

1957, and Ashley Cooper, who won
in 1958 before Peru's Alex Olmedo
broke the Aussie string last year.
Olmedo now is a pro.
Fraser also became the third
lefthander since the tourney be-
gan in 1877 to take the title. The
first was Sir Norman Brookes of
Australia, winner in 1907. and 1914
and a spectator here yesterday.
The other was Czech exile Jaros-
lav Drobny, 1954.
Ends Today
Wimbledon's "dedicated fort-
night" ends today with the crown-
ing of the women's singles and
various doubles champions. Maria
Bueno of Brazil is favored to take
her second straight women's crown
in the final round against Sandra
Reynolds of South Africa.
Miss Bueno has a chance for
one of the rare Wimbledon triples.
She and Darlene Hard of Monte-
bello, Calif., gained the women's
doubles final by beating Karen
Hantze of San Diego, Calif., and
Janet Hopps of Seattle, 3-6, 6-1,
6-4. She also is in the mixed
doubles final with Bob Howe of
Australia. In doubles the Hard-
Bueno combination will meet
South Africa's Miss Reynolds and
Renee Schuurman.

The men's doubles final will
involve two unseeded teams.
Dennis Ralston of Bakersfield,
Calif., and Rafael Osuna of Mex-
ico will meet the British pair of
Mike Davies and Bobby Wilson.
The Britons. yesterday eliminated
Australia's Bob Hewitt and Martin
Ralston and Miss Hantze, a
couple of 17-year-olds, were beat-
en in the mixed doubles quarter-
final by Czechoslovakia's Jaroslav
Javorsky and Vera Puzejova, 2-6,
6-4, 9-7.

LOS ANGELES (A) - -Frank

eral manager of the Los Angeles
Leahy, former head coach at
Notre Dame, was hospitalized here
recently with a stomach disorder.
He later went to Chicago to con-
sult a physician and is still there.

"It is with the deepest regret
that I accept the resignation of

two American crews left in the
competition as Yale's sub - par

finals of the Grand Challenge
Eliminate Americans
Both Harvard and Detroit elimi-
nated other American entries in
the Thames Cup quarter-finals on
the famed Thames straightaway
course of a mile, 550 yards.
Harvard, aiming for a record-
tying third straight capture of the
Thames Cup, scored its 29th con-
secutive victory in defeating the
heavier and higher-stroking Kent
School of Connecticut. The Crim-
son 155-pounders won by a half-
length over the schoolboys, who
average 168 pounds, in 6 minutes,
52 seconds.
Hold Lead
The collegians got off to a slight
lead and held it all the way in a
stiff battle with the smooth Kent
School oarsmen.
Only one other organization has
won the Thames Cup three times
in a row, according to Henley his-
torians. That feat was accom-
plished before the turn of the
century by the Thames Rowing
Club of Britain, 1872-3-4.
Detroit, looking more impressive
every day, beat Eliot House of
Harvard by 1% lengths in 7 min-


Pirates, Cards, Redlegs
All Win in Extra Innings

By The AssocIated Press
The Pittsburgh Pirates, with
Dick Stuart again the hero, moved
four games out front in the Na-
tional League race by beating Los
Angeles 4-3 in 10 innings last
night while second place Milwau-
kee dropped the first game of a
twi - night doubleheader at St.
The Cardinals beat the Braves
8-7 in 10 innings after blowing
a 7-0 lead. St. Louis led 5-0 after
seven innings in the second game.
All but one American League
game was postponed by rain and
Baltimore won it, moving within
one game of first place New York
with a 4-0 victory over the Chi-
cago White Sox.
Redlegs Edge Cubs
Cincinnati defeated the Chicago
Cubs 5-3 in 12 innings in the only'
other NL game played. San Fran-
cisco and Philadelphia were rain-
ed out.
Stuart, who hammered three
homers andhdrove in seven runs
when the Pirates defeated San
Francisco 11-6 Thursday night,
capped a two-run 10th against the
Dodgers with a two-out single that
sent Roberto Clemente scamper-
ing home from first. Joe Chris-
topher had opened the rally with
a double and scored on Clemente's
high bounder to second. Reliever
Larry Sherry (6-5) was the loser.
Break Tie
The Dodgers broke a 2-2 tie in
the top of the 10th when Charlie
Neal's seventh homer chased Vern
Law. The Pirate ace also gave up
a two-run homer by John Rose-
boro in the seventh after the Bucs
scored twice in the sixth off
Johnny Podres on Gino Cimoli's
bases-loaded single. Fred Green
(4-2) won it in relief.
A two - out single by Johnny
Glenn, a 32-year-old rookie, did
it for the Cards after Julian Javier
opened the 10th with a double off
reliever Joey Jay (2-3). Ernie
Broglio (7-4), the Cards' fifth
pitcher, was the winner after Mil-
waukee chased starter Larry Jack-
son with four unearned runs- in
the seventh and then nicked re-
lief ace Lindy McDaniel for three
runs with two out in the ninth.

Ken Boyer drove in three and Bill
White two as the Cards tagged

league debut, for their first seven
Pappas Belts One
Milt Pappas (7-5) hit a two-
run homer and held the White Sox
to five hits for his fourth straight
victory and second shutout. The
homer, his first hit of the season,
came in the fifth and beat Billy
Pierce (6-4).
The Reds won with two in the
12th on Roy McMillan's sacrifice
fly and Willie Jones' pinch single
after singles by Gus Bell and
Frank Krozinson. Bob Grim won
his first in the NL in relief. Don
Elston (4-4) was the loser.

Miss Wright, longest hitter in
LPGA ranks, overcame the slow
fairways by powering a 250-footer

W HEN MICHIGAN'S COACHES cry that their job of recruiting is
getting harder every year, don't laugh. As the demand to get into

One seldom knows how much credence to place in such oft-
repeated tales as the one that made the rounds a few years back
that of the 11 starters on a football team representing a certain
school concentrating on agricultural subjects a few miles to the north,
seven of these had tried to enter our own "Athens of the Midwest"
without success. While stories such as these can be construed as mere
ego-inflaters, the fact remains that Michigan is not the easiest
school in the nation for athlete or non-athlete to enter.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN the University here and some other
institutions of "higher learning" in the country was demonstrated
recently in a wire service story concerning Olympic hopeful shot-
putter Dave Davis.
Davis was quoted coicerning his curriculum saying he took a
heavy academic load of five courses. This class load included such
toughies as Methods of Baseball, Methods of Track and Field, First
Aid, Dance, and Safety Education.
Not to disparage San Fernando Valley State College, this indi-
cates that there might possibly have been some favoritism being
played for the sake of the athlete-scholar.
