OSU Swimmers Did Best Ever in NCAA

Ohio State spotted Southern
California a ten-point lead on the
first night of the NCAA swimming
championships last Thursday, but
it was that very night that the
Buckeyes got, their biggest boost
toward, the team title, according
to Michigan Coach Gus Stager.
Southern Cal and defending
champion Michigan had been co-
favored with Ohio State, but the
Buckeyes, swimming in their home
pools salted away their first cham-
pionship since 1956 by doubling
runner - up Southern Cal's 46
Minnesota, with 41%, was third
and Michigan, with 32, .was fourth.
Trojans Had Hopes
The Trojans from the West
Coast had hopes of slamming the
1500-meter freestyle and they did
get first, third and fifth in the
meet's first event plus a third in
the 200-yd. individual medley to
take a 17-7 lead over Ohio State.
But the winner of the medley
was Ohio State sophomore Marty
Mull, who swam the fastest race
of his life to nip last year's win-
ner, Jack Kelso of Denver, in
The rub was that Mull had
finished only sixth in that race
during the Big Ten meet earlier
in the month, and what it meant
to Ohio State, which had finished
third in the conference behind In-
diana and Michigan, was that it
could take the collegiate cham-
Set It Up
"Mull set it up," pointed out
Stager, -"and then they just got
hot and they -got some breaks, too.
They started to do well and they
did well; we started to do poorly
and we did poorly.
"Fourth is lousy," he added.
The next day, while the Wolver-
ines were qualifying only two
swimmers, breaststrokers Dick Nel-
son and Jon Baker, for the eve-
ning's final races, Ohio State all
but wrapped up the meet, starting
when it qualified three men for
the 200-yd. butterfly.
Swims Best
Artie Wolfe, who had also fin-
ished sixth in the Big Ten, swam
the best race of his life and beat
Villanova's Dick McDonough for
first in 1:58.0. Allan Cartwright,
who didn't even make the Big
Ten finals, swam the best race of
his life and picked up third. Nate
Clark, a sophomore who had be-
come eligible only days before at
the start of the quarter, swam the
best race of his life and finished
After that, the Buckeyes got
wins out o fthe medlay relay team,
L. B. Schaefer in the 100- and 200-
backstroke and Lou Vitucci in the
one-and three-meter diving. They
placed ini12 of 16 events.
Go Home Sad
All the other contenders went
home unhappy, though. Stager
commented, "Every team that
went there to win did poorly-
Southern Cal, Michigan State and
us. Minnesota did just about what
they expected to do.
"Cincinnati (which finished sev-
enth with 19 points to beat Yale)
made a show. f think if we'd gone
with the, attitude of making a
show we'd have done better, but
we went there to win and fell
One of the biggest shocks of the
meet was that Michigan qualified
only five swimmers, one relay
team and two divers into the fin-
als of the 16 events.
Nelson Does Best
Nelson swam his best time ever
(2:17.2) in taking second in the
200-yd. breaststroke, while Baker
came in fourth at 2:18.1.

Gets Power
For Ramos
Cleveland Indians got a sorely
needed starting pitcher yesterday
by trading first baseman Vic
Power and pitcher Dick Stigman
to the Minnesota Twins for Pedro
No cash was involved in the
deal, which was announced by Cal
Griffith, president of the Twins,
in Orlando, Fla.
The Indians, who have been
having troubles in spring exhibi-
tion games, gave up one of base-
ball's finest fielding first basemen
in Power. Stigman, a 26-year old
southpaw, who was selected for
the American League's 1960 All-
Star Game, failed to come through
for the Indians last year. He suf-
fered a sore elbow in spring train-
ing last year and didn't pitch un-
til May. He compiled a 2-5 record
in 22 appearances.
Power, 31, with a respectable
lifetime average of .289, slumped
to .268 last year and hit only five
home runs. Cleveland manager
Mel McGaha tried him at second
base this spring but apparently
wasn't satisfied with the arrange-'
Ramos, a 26-year old right-:
hander, was a workhorse for the
Twins last year. He appeared in
42 games, winning 11 and losing
20, and had an earned run aver-
age of 4.64.

Stanley Cup
Takes a Wall
-Well Almost
CHICAGO () -- The Stanley
Cup, since 1893 the symbol of ice
hockey supremacy, was locked up
in the Chicago Black Hawks dress-
ing room at Chicago Stadium yes-
Meanwhile, Kenneth Kilander,
25, an enthusiastic Montreal Cana-
dien booster, was locked up in jail
for trying to steal it last night.
The Hawks did not press charges
against Kilander. He was nabbed
heading for an exit after picking a
lock on the showcase of the sta-
dium and removing the 4-foot, 25-
pound trophy valued at $8,000 be-
,cause of its tradition. Police, how-
fever, booked him for disorderly
Police said Kilander told them
an unidentified man had promised
him $400 if he delivered the cup
to a Loop hotel.

Talented juniors, here is a chance you will
never have again: A summer job creating ad-
vertisements for one of the world's largest ad-
vertising agencies. A chance to find out-,-
while you are still in college -if you can make
the grade in the tough and rewarding business
of advertising.
Do you have'what it takes to succeed as an advertis-
ing writer?
The only way to find out is to try it.
But if you wait until you graduate, you'll find it
almost impossible to land a writing job with a good
advertising agencv. To get a job. you have to have.

You work from mid-June until Labor Day in our
office in New York.
You start right out writing.
You don't have to carry mail or sharpen pencils-the
usual ways to break into advertising. You do get a
chance to think up and write advertisements and com-
mercials for nationally known companies in the food,
appliance, soap, gasoline and insurance fields.
You learn, not through lectures or training pro-
grams, but by actually working with the most capa-
ble professionals in the business.
You earn enough to pay transportation costs from
your home, live in New York, and still show a profit
at the end of the summer (if you're not too big-hearted
about snatching all the lunch tabs).

instinctive understanding of-and respect for- people.
How can you tell if you have the stuff?
Do you love to read? We've yet to meet a good writer
who isn't a reader-hungry for new ideas, excited
about new ways of expressing them.
Do you love to write? If you have what it takes,
you have probably been writing all your life. Right
now, you may be writing articles for your college news-
