Washington Sophomore
Vaults to ..Record

* MIWUAKEE WP)-Brian Stern-
berg, a University of Washing-
ton sophomore, cleared 16 feet,
3%/2 inches in the pole vault Sat-
urday night in the first indoor
championships of the U.S. Track
and Field Federation.
Steinberg's vault was the great-
est in U.S. history. Finland's Pen-
tili Nikula, however, cleared 16
feet, 0% inches last Feb. 2.
Sternberg brought the crowd to
its feet with his electrifying vault,
made on his first attempt after
his chief foes bowed out at 16
feet, 2 inch.
After his tremendous vault, of-
ficials raised the bar to 16 feet,
99% inches to give Sternberg a
crack at Nikulas' mark.

JACKSON, Miss. (M) - Miss-
lssippi officials defied the state's
unwritten law Saturday and back-
ed Mississippi State's move to play
in theNational Collegiate Athletic
Association basketball tournament.
The State College Board, meet-
ing in Jackson, voted 8-3 approval
to let the Southeastern Conference
champs go-although they may
play integrated teams.
Before the meeting, police chas-
ed off four white student pickets.
One of their signs read, "don't
discriminate against whites. Let
State play."
Gov. Ross Barnett had thrown
his weight behind moves to block
State, thus apparently prompting
the meeting. Barnett said he per-
sonally felt it was "not for the
best interest" of the school, the
state or the races.
MSU, seventh ranked nationally
with a 21-5 record, had won the
right 'to play in the NCAA tour-
ney for the third straight time. An
unwritten law banning competi-
tion yin integrated sports events
;has blocked the school from play-
The board also expressed a vote
of confidence in W. D. Colvard,
State's president, who made the
decision to go last Saturday night.
He said the team wanted to go.
The faculty and Coach Babe
McCarthy backed Colvard's de-
M. M. Roberts, board member
from Hattiesburg, introduced a
resolution against letting State go.
But the board voted down the
move, 7-3.
After the ballot board Chairman
Tom Tubb went on record as
favoring State's participation, thus
recording the final vote as 8-3.

of conference coaches.
Indiana's Jim Lavery, chairman
of the Big Ten coaches' commit-
tee, said the group's "finding and
the pictures" will be sent to con-
ference Commission Bill Reed.
"We reviewed films of the 60-

yard dash and also had some still
pictures," Lavery said. "However,
in all fairness to the Iowa and
Michigan track teams, any state-
ment should come from Mr. Reed."
Iowa compiled 43 points in win-
ning its first Big Ten title since
1929 March 2. Official final results
placed Michigan second with 41
However, the films reportedly
show that Michigan's Ken Burnley
may have placed fourth in the
dash. If Burnley is awarded that
spot, Michigan would move into a
tie with Iowa for the champion-
In Chicago, Reed said he will
view the films and make an an-
nouncement Monday. The prece-
dent in the Big Ten is well es-
tablished for changing places and
scores after rechecks of films have
been made. However, it has never
happened where a title is at stake.

Nuller captured the hurdles

Special To The Daily
EVANSTON-Michigan crown-
ed two new Wolverine title hold-
ers and snatched the Big Ten
Wrestling Championship away
from Iowa here yesterday, 52-42.
Northwestern took third place
with 34 points, and Minnesota's
32 placed fourth. The 1963 mat
championships were a return to
the top spot for Coach Cliff Keen's
crew after a two-year absence.
The Wolverines finished second
in both years, last season to
Iowa, and the year before to
Michigan State.
New Champs
New Michigan conference
champs, sophomore Rick Bay in
the 157-lb. division and heavyman
Jack Barden in the top weight
class, pushed the Wolverine mar-
gin of victory, but the Flue had
the meet cinched even before a
Michigan man touched the mats
in the finals.
The new champs stretched
their lead to 46-35 over the
Hawkeyes in consolation action,
and Steve Parker one of three
Iowa finalists,, suffered a wrist
injury on Friday and was forced to
forfeit his 130-lb. match to Louis
Kennedy of Minngsota.
Bay won his Big Ten medal
over Indiana's Bill Galvin, pow-
ering his way to a 5-2 win. An
early takedown followed by an es-



cape at the start of the second
period put the Wolverine on top
of a 3-0 lead going into the final
three minutes.
Little Tougher
.Barden's title win came a little
tougher. Up against the 1962
heavyweight champ Roger Pillath,
who Barden had pinned earlier
this year, the Michigan anchor-
man had to pick up his winning
points in overtime after the regu-
lation time spare-down brought
a 1-1 tie. And in the extra two
periods, Barden poured it on.
After an escape burly Jack flat-
tened Pillath for predicament
points and followed with like

action in the required second
two-minute overtime period.

Tankers Finish Second Behind Indiana

Special To The Daily
I LAFAYETTE-Indiana was not
to be denied first place in the Big
Ten Swimming Championships
which concluded here last night.
Their total of 2381/4 points far
outdistanced the second place
challengers. Michigan, however,
withstood a determined Minnesota
bid to capture second by the slim
margin of 1471/2 to 1401/2,
Ohio State finished fourth with
115% and Michigan State was
fifth with 841/2. The other teams
in order of finish were Purdue

Minnesota Swim Duo
Gives Michigan Trouble

Special To The Daily
LAFAYETTE -. Minnesota's
Steve Jackman and Wally Rich-
ardson kept trying to kick them
back in last night, but Michigan's
swimmers just managed to climb
out of the hole they had put them-
selves in Thursday with a costly
disqualification in the medley re-
In edging the Gophers for sec-
ond place in the Big Ten cham-
pionships the Wolverines had to
overcome the most spectacular
twosome in one of the fastest con-
ference meets on record.
Michigan could pull only two
seconds and two thirds during the
entire individual competition, but
fulfilled Coach Gus Stager's pre-
diction that team depth might be
able to produce enough points for
second place.
Six Wins
Jackman and Richardson be-
tween them accounted for six
Gopher victories, compared with
nine for Indiana and one each for
Michigan State and Ohio State,
which both flopped miserably in
the team competition.
Jackman, as expected, won the
50- and 100-yd. freestyles in rec-
ord times (:21.0 and :47.3), but
it was Richardson, an unproven
sophomore, who nearly finished
off Michigan. He trounced Indi-
ana's Fred Schmidt and Lary
Schulhof by swimming the two
fastest butterfly races in history-
:50.6 for the 100 and 1:53.7 for
the 200.
Then, swimming the third and
fourth legs, respectively, on both
relay teams, Richardson and Jack-
man were responsible for upset-
ting Indiana in the medley and
Michigan State in the freestyle-
both in collegiate record times.
For Michigan, sophomore Ed
Bartsch became the Wolverines'
top star, although he disappointed
both himself and Stager with his
He added a third place in the
100-yd. backstroke last night to
his second in the 200 on Friday.
Both times he defeated defending
NCAA champion L. B. Schaefer, of
Ohio State, but still couldn't make
it. to the top.
Michigan State's Jeff Mattson

pulled off one of the big surprises
of the meet by beating the field
in the 100, although Bartsch said
he picked Mattson last week as
the man to watch.
Michigan's only other runner-up
besides Bartsch was senior breast-
stroker Dick Nelson, twice NCAA
champion, who lost out to Indi-
ana's Chet Jastremski for the sec-
ond straight year. Last night he
swam his second fastest time ever,
1:01.5, and was just able to hold
off Indiana's Ken Nakasone in the
battle for second.
Loses Out
Frank Berry, who swam a strong
third in the 200-yd. freestyler Fri-
day night, lost a chance to get
into the money for a second time
yesterday when he was disquali-
fled in his 100 heat for failing to
touch on his final turn.
He had been stroking even with
Michigan State's Mike Wood up
to that time and eventually wound
up second in his heat.
Berry, however, did anchor the
freestyle relay team to a new var-
sity record of 3:17.8 in the after-
noon preliminaries by splitting
:48.2 for his 100 yds. Stager com-
mented, "For the first time it looks
as though Frank can become a
really great swimmer. He's goe de-
sire now."
In the finals of the freestyle re-
lay Michigan ended up fourth
after second place in the meet had
already been cinched.
Although the 100 freestyle was

verines failed to advance a man

verines by pulling into a 17-point
lead at one point. But losing val-
uable points in the breaststroke,
diving and the 1650-yd. freestyle
deprived Minnesota of second.
Steve Jackman of Minnesota
established a new Big Ten record
of 47.3 in the 100-yd. freestyle
as he easily outdistanced the field.
Ralph Allen captured a third for
Michigan's S t e v e Thrasher
placed seventh after dropping a
swim-off for the sixth and final
qualifying position. Jim Riutta
tied for eleventh.
Close Contest
In an extremely close 100-yd.
backstroke contest, Michigan
State's Jeff Mattson touched out
Hoosier flash Tom Stock by .2 of
a second in a 54.6. The top four
swimmers took the turn after 50
yards almost simultaneously.
Mattson turned it on to win the
race at the very end. Ed Bartsch
of Michigan finished third, just
a shade ahead of defending
champion L. B. Schaefer of Ohio
Dick Nelson chased home Indi-
ana's Chet Jastremski in the 100-
yd. breaststroke. Chet the Jet sped
to a 1:00.9 race with Nelson right
behind at 1:01.5.
For a short time Ken Nakasone
of Indiana threatened to nudge
Nelson down to third, but his bid
folded in the stretch.
Coach Gus Stager then un-
coiled his three-four-six power
punch in the 1650-yd. freestyle to
knock Minnesota flat. Being down
by over four points, Michigan
vaulted into an eight point lead
over Minnesota with the combin-
ation of Tom Dudley (who was
third), Rob Burry (fourth), and
John Dumont (sixth).

Of course, Indiana finished first
and second in this new event,
which is some 10 yards longer
than last year's 1500 meters, and
thus established a new record.
But this is just incidental since
the Hoosiers had already gather-
ed more points after only two
days of the championships than
second place Michigan had col-
lected after the third day.
Alan Somers did, though, hap-
pen to spiash to .a 17.36.0 clock-
ing. This was 1.5 seconds faster
than his record set last year in
the Big Ten at the slightly short-
er distance. Gary Verhoever was
runner-up at 17:54.7.
