Budd Ties Indoor Dash Mark

By The Associated Press v

amazing combination of speed and
coordination, twice ran the 60-yd.
dash in a magic :06.0 last night
tieing the American indoor record
and led Villanova to the IC4A
track and field championship in
Madison Square Garden.
The Wildcats from Philadel-
phia's Main Line piled up 30%2
points to wrest the title back from
Yale. In addition to Budd, Villan-
ova produced winners in the two-
mile relay (7:45.2), the mile which
Vic Zwolak negotiated in 4:09.3
and the pole vault in which
Rolando Cruz climbed 15'3%".
Both Budd and Cruz broke meet
records. Other meet marks were
shattered by Gary Gubner of New
York University, who got off a
64'313" toss in the shot put; Bob
Mack of Yale, who clocked 8:58.3
in the two-mile run; and Ted

Bailey of Harvard, who flipped the
35-pound weighth63'5".
Only two other sprinters ever
had hit the :06.0 mark. They are
Herb Carper and Roscoe Cook.
Michigan State picked up points
when Sherman Lewis won the
broad jump in 23'11" and Gerry
Young finished fourth in the two-
mile run in 9:10.6.

Michigan was second and Bill
Smith of Wisconsin third.
Jim Beatty, the sub-four minute
miler from the Los Angeles Track
Club who did 3:59.7 in Chicago,
dropped down to the 1,000 last
night and won in 2:10.7, far off
the meet record of 2:08.1 set by
George Kerr.
Beatty moved to the front with
about three laps to go and de-
feated Hylke Van Der Wal by some
12 yards.
Jerry Bashaw of Western Mich-
igan won the college mile in 4:14.9
in a wild finish. Al Carius of Illi-
nois was second in 4:15.2 and Don
Loker of Wisconsin third in 4:16.8.
George Kerr, the former Illinois
middle distance flash now running
unattached, set a meet record of
1:10.8 in taking the 600 in easy
fashion. Kerr had a 10-yard mar-
gin on Bill Boyle in bettering the
old standard of 1:10.9 by Dave
Mills in 1961. Mills was third in
defense of his laurels.
Bob Shul of the Los Angeles

There is a sign pinned on the
bulletin board in the Ohio State
locker room.
Neatly printed on that sign are
the numerals 24. To any Buckeye
basketball player and, for that
matter, to the part of the sports
world that avidly follows college
basketball, that number can mean
only one thing-the date of the
NCAA basketball finals in Louis-
ville, Ky.
Nearly one year ago, Fred Tay-
lor, the coach of the then top-
ranked Buckeyes, experienced a
nightmare under the glaring lights
in Kansas City. He had just seen
his fine basketball team, the de-
fending national champion and
the winner of 32 straight games,
lose its title in an overtime to
Shock Gone
After the initial shock had worn
off, a single statement condensed
out of the whirling thoughts in the
minds of thousands, "Next year."
Next year is here, and both
teams are back -- bigger and
stronger, faster and flashier. If
these two teams, Ohio State and


Cincinnati, should reach the finals
-and, indeed, Cincinnati is not
even sure of getting the tourna-
ment nod at all.
Never Tested
To date, Ohio State has never
been severely tested. Wisconsin
provided the only blemish on the
Buckeyes' 23-1 record. Little need
be said about the Boy Wonder
Jerry Lucas, everybody's all-every-
thing for all-time. However, the
Bucks can and have been caught
napping or as Taylor puts it, "gin-
ning around." Ohio State had best
limit its "ginning around" in the
NCAA or it won't make the finals
as it must thread its way through
the eastern half of the NCAA draw
where the overall level of compe-
tition looks the toughest.
The quintet that will likely have
the most to say, will be the Wild-
cats of Kentucky under the tute-
lage of the winningest coach in
the country-wiley Adolph Rupp.
Kentucky should run over the win-
ner of the Bowling Green-Butler
contest in the first round, and fight

For the first time in the history
of Michigan high school swim-
ming, two teams--Grosse Point
and Birmingham Seaholm-tied
for the class A championship last
night at the Varsity Pool.
The Blue Devils from Grosse
Point had to set a state record
in winning the 200-yd. freestyle
relay, the last event of the meet,
to catch up to the Maples. Both
teams ended the meet with 32
Ann Arbor finished third with
29 points and would have won the
championships if its freestyle relay
team, which qualified second be-
hind Lansing Eastern in the pre-
liminaries, had taken first place
instead of Grossq Pointe.
Tied for Fourth
Birmingham ~ Groves, Detroit
Thurston and Detroit Eastern tied
for fourth with 11 points. Tren-
ton and Detroit Pershing tied for
seventh with 12 points. Lansing
Eastern, Saginaw Arthur Hill, and
Detroit Cooley tied for ninth with
11 points.
State records were set in every
event except the 100-yd and 200-
yd freestyle races. Birmingham
Seaholm won its last 14 points
in the medley relay where the
Maples set a state record of
Eight Records
Eight of ten state records were
smashed in the meet. Besides the
two records in the relays and
Spencer's butterfly record, Ken
Wiebeck set state records of 57.71
in the backstroke and 2:09.98 in
the individual medley. Wiebeck is
a sophomore at Detroit Thurston.
Jim MacMillon from Detroit
Eastern won the 50-yd. and 100-
yd. freestyle sprints. His time of
22.40 set a state record in the 50.
Pete Adams, Detroit Pershing
sophomore, swam the 400-yd. free-
style in 4:04.59 to break the pre-
vious record by 6.7 seconds. He
finished second to Dave Royster
of Ann Arbor in the 200-yd. free-
style. Bill Truesdell from Detroit
Redford Union set a state' record
of 1:03.04 in 'the 100-yd. breast-
In the other state high school
championship held here, Grand-
ville won its first Class B wrestling
championship by outpointing
Grand Ledge 84-77 last night.

Grandville wrestlers picked up
four individual championships and
one second enroute to the title.
Grand Ledge had three individual
champions and two runnersup.
Have Good Depth
Coach Kay Husell's Grandville
matmen, who finished fifth last
year, showed strong depth, es-
pecially in the lower weights, send-
ing eight men into the semi-finals.
Five champions won their second
straight crowns: Dan Samuels of
Grandville at 103 lbs, Larry Sy-
kora of School for the Blind at
127, Joe Lester of River Rouge at
133, Dick Adams of Corunna at
138 and John Karpinski of Bu-
