'M' Thinclads Invade Kalamazoo, Hamilton



Cincinnati Nips UCLA, 72-70;
Ohio State Rolls On, 84-68

The Michigan track team takes
on an international aspect today
as it spreads out to participate in
two meets, one in Kalamazoo and
the other in Hamilton, Ontario.
Coach Don Canham will lead a
representative squad into Kalama-
zoo for the Western Michigan Re-
lays as the thinclads draw the
curtain on their 1962 indoor
The Western Michigan meet is
an invitational one and some
twenty-odd teams, including Mich-
igan State and Notre Dame, will
be represented.
Best Men Out
The Michigan squad will be
lacking some of their better men,
though. "I regard this meet simply
as a warm-up meet for the squad,"
said Canham. "Their times will be
used in determining the group
that will be sent to Florida."
(The outdoor season for Michi-

gan starts with an exhibition trip
to Coral Gables, Florida during
the Spring Vacation.)
Among the notables missing
from the team are Bennie McCrae,
Ergas Leps, Dorr Casto and Dan
Leps, Casto and Hughes will be
at the Hamilton meet, which is
sponsored by the 91st Highlanders
and will be competing against
trackmen representing both Can-
ada and the United States.
Lineup Known
This small squad will be under
the tutelage of assistant coach
Elmer Swanson. The races the
men will compete in has been
decided. Leps will run the mile
and Casto the Open 600. Hughes
is the only question mark. He may
run the 880 unless an age limit
forces him out of the race. The
age for competitors in the 880
may have been set at 17. If this

is so, Hughes will run the Open
600 along with Casto.
At Kalamazoo, Dick Thelwell
and Cliff Nuttall will try to qual-
ify in both the high and low hurd-
les. In the lows, they will be joined
by Charles Peltz and Joe Mason,
who are also slated to run the
In the sprint medley, Carter
Reese and Bill Hornbeck will run
the 220 yd laps, John Davis will
do the 440 lap and Jay Sampson
the 880 lap.
Dave Romain, Dave Hayes, Ted
Kelly and Charles Aquino form the
team for the two mile relay.
Aquino is joined by Reese, Talt
Malone and Mac Hunter in the
mile relay.
Seeks Repeat
In the field events, Rod Den-
hart, winner at the Denison Re-
lays last weekend, will try 'for
another first in the pole vault. He
can expect a serious challenge

from teammate Steve Overton.
Dave Raimey will again be doing
the honors for Michigan in the
broad jump. Raimey will be sec-
onded by Doug Niles in this event.
Other field entries include Roger
Schmitt and Ernst Soudek throw-
ing the shot, and Steve Williams
and Al Ammerman assaulting the
high jump.
Hornbeck will be the only entry
in the Open 600 while Kent Ber-
nard will be the sole entry in the
Frosh 600. Des Ryan, running the
two mile, Angus MacDougald, par-
ticipating in the 1000, and Rick
Cunninghbm, halving Ryan's dis-
tance, are the other members of
the Frosh team who are slated to
put in an appearance at Kal-
Distance Hopes
The varsity entrants in the dis-
tance events of the meet incinde
Chris Murray and Fred Langille,
who will be battling in the gruel-
ing two mile run.
Canham had no plans for en-
tering anyone in the dash or in
the mile run.
The cindermen will, of course,
be looking forward to the Florida
games which will signal the start
of the outdoor season for them.
Seek Revenge
But they will be looking past
that with fond (?) memories of
the first week of March when
they were decisively beaten by a
strong Wisconsin squad. They will
be looking to the Western Con-
ference Meet on May 18-19 when
they will have a chance to avenge
their indoor loss with a repeat
of the outdoor championship
gained last year.

St. john's Duels with Dayton
For Crown in NIT Tourney

NEW YORK (P)-St. John's and
Dayton, two teams that have
everything and proved it the hard
way, tangle this afternoon for the
title in the National Invitation
Basketball Tournament at Madi-
son Square Garden.
The home town Redmen are
gunning for their fourth NIT title.
Dayton seeks its first in ten tries.
The Flyers have been frustrated
runners-up five times.
Ellis vs. 'Big Bill'
Two big men carry the key. Le-
roy Ellis, 6-foot-10 is the St.
John's scorer. Bill Chmielewski,
same size, is the pivot of the Day-
ton offense.
Both clubs also have fine out-
side shooting, defense, ball-han-
dling, desire and poise.

Maris Feuds
With Ex-Star
couldn't carry my bat." With those
stinging words, Rogers Hornsby,
Hall of Fame hitter, turned up
the heat yesterday on a newly-
spawned feud with Roger Mar-
is, the 61-homer hitter of the New
York Yankees.
Hornsby, now a coach with the
New York Mets, called Maris a
"little punk ball player," "a swell-
ed up guy" and a "bush leaguer"
-the latter perhaps the sharpest
of the printable things one ma-
jor leaguer can call another.
It was the latest incident in a
turbulent spring for Mars-known
as "Rude Roger" to at least one
New York newspaper-that has
included a running fight with the
press, and a report he signed au-
tographs with an "X."
Pose Starts It
The Hornsby-Mais spat started
yesterday at an exhibition game
between the Mets and the Yan-
kees. A photographer asked Horns-
by, one of the game's greatest
hitters, to grab a bat and pose
for a picture with Maris, who hit
more home runs last year than
any other man in a season.
Hornsby obliged, but Maris turn-
ed his back on the Mets coach.
"I've posed with some real ma-
jor leaguers, but not bush leaguers
like he is," Hornsby exploded.
Still Burning
The Rajah still was fuming
many hours after the incident.
He said that Maris muttered
something when he turned his
back on him.
"Something about.'that guy has
been knocking me in the papers',"
Hornsby said. "I know what he
meant. Last season I told a writer
that there was only one thing
Maris could do better than the
Babe-that was, run.
"I also said that Mickey Man-
tle has all types of ability Maris
doesn't have. I said I'd like to see
Mantle lead in home runs. He hits
over .300 and is a much better all-
around player."
Maris hit only .269 last season,
while blasting 61 homers, and has
a lifetime mark of .261. Horns-
by's lifetime mark was .358, and
he topped .400 three times, reach-
ing .424 in 1924.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (M)-"It was
just our turn to die," said Coach
Horace (Bones) McKinney last
night after Wake Forest lost to
Ohio State, 84-68, in the semifinals
of the NCAA Basketball Tourna-
In losing, McKinney also learn-
ed one thing: "Ohio State dispelled
any doubt in my mind that- they
are the nation's No. 1 basketball

sational but (John) Havlicek was
just as great." Havlicek led the

while Lucas collected 19 points be-

The 6-8, 223-pound Lucas, Play-
er of the Year the last two seasons
and playing his next to last college
game, fell heavily to the floor
with 6 minutes and 19 seconds left
and the mighty Buckeyes leading
by 19 points.
He lay on his side a few sec-
onds, pain showing on his face,
then slowly regained his feet. As-
sisted to the bench, he was exam-
fied for about 30 seconds, then
was helped to the dressing room.
In the dressing room, Lucas
said, "I don't think it's really bad.
It really hurt at first but it eased
up in a few minutes."
Lucas said, "I jumped for a re-
bound and started to turn, some-
body bumped me, and I came down
on my heel. My knee twisted un-
der me."

Asked what brought about Ohio
State's victory, Coach Fred Tay-

All-America Lucas, who had the
job of defending Bob Woollard.
"It was Woollard's rebounding,"

Forest. through its regional tour-
nament play. Last night, Lucas
fairly well shut him down."
Woollard was able to shoot only

Taylor, coach of Ohio State's top-
ranked Buckeyes, was named to-
day as Coach of the Year by the
United States Basketball Writers
Association for the second straight
Taylor was presented with a
plaque by Hack Miller of Salt Lake
City, President of the Association,
at the annual luncheon of the
National Association of Basket-
ball Coaches.
Taylor was selected in a poll
of 700 USBWA members. As is
customary, the names of- other
coaches high in the voting were
not disclosed.
Ed Hickey of Marquette was the
first recipient of the award- in
1959. Pete Newell of California
won in 1960.

Jimmy Phelan of Mt. Saint
Mary's (Md.), winner of the NCAA
college division championship at
Evansville, Ind., last weekendi, was
honored as small college "Coach of
the Year" by the NABC.
Other awards went to Ed Hickox,
former coach at Springfield

Taylor said he was keeping his
fingers crossed that Lucas will be
able to perform in tonight's
championship battle. The Ohio
State trainer, Dr. Robert Murphy,
said the 6-8, 223-pound star suf-
fered a mild sprain and should be
able to play.
* * * .
The Ohio State victory was a
relatively simple one but Cincin-
nati-second ranked behind the
Buckeyes in the final Associated
Press poll-had the scare of its
life after starting out as if it
would demoralize UCLA before the
game was half over.
The Bearcats, if they can un-
jumble their nerves in time, and
the Buckeyes will play in a re-
match for the title tonight at 9
p.m., EST.
These two teams played in last
year's championship with Cincin-
nati beating Ohio State, 70-65, in

overtime while dethroning the
1960 champions and snapping the
32-game winning streak of Lucas
and company.
It will take something like that
spectacular game to match the
tension and thrills that the semi-
finals had for a roaring sellout
crowd of 18,274 at Freedom Hall
last night.
With four seconds remaining,
Cincinnati's Tom Thacker hit a,
.one-handed jump shot from about
15 feet away to down surprising-
ly strong UCLA.
It dropped through the 'net
without touching the rim.
UCLA, which had "watched"
Cincinnati storm to the game's
first 10 points and an 18-4 lead
after five minutes of play before
starting its unbelievable come-
back, had one chance remaining.
Johnny Wooden's Bruins called
time out with one second show-
ing. But they weren't able to get
off a shot when time resumed.
