Nelson, Bartseh Hold Hopes in NCAA's

No Evidence Butts Gambled


Dick Nelson hardly ever wins a
race these days-except his spe-
cialty, the collegiate championship
in the 100-yd. breaststroke.
As Michigan heads into the first
day of competition in the NCAA
swimming championships today at
Raleigh, N.C., much of the load
will rest with Nelson, a cagey
senior from Grand Rapids who
will be trying to make it three in
a row at 100 yds.
Although Nelson is Michigan's
only defending champion in the
meet, Coach Gus Stager also has
high hopes for sophomore back-
stroker Ed Bartsch, whom he calls
'our only ene who can possibly
win two first places."
Don't Get Hopes Upi
As far as the team battle goes,
things don't look very good for
Michigan. At least this is the con-
tention of Stager, who has coach-
ed Wolverine teams to four na-
tional titles in the last six years
but usually prefers to take the
role of underdog.
"Yale looks like a good bet, but
I'm putting my 'sneaking' money
on Southern Cal," he offered.
"It's a rat race and we probably
won't be in on it. If we're going
to do anything, it's going to take
a superlative effort on the part of
our swimmers," he added.
Changes Mind
Stager said that he favors USC,
even though he voted for Yale in
a recent coaches' poll that predict-
ed the following finish: Yale,
Southern California, Minnesota,
Ohio State, Michigan and South-
ern Methodist.
Michigan edged out Minnesota
in the Big Ten championships
earlier in the month, finishing
second for the third straight year
behind Indiana. The Hoosiers are
ineligible until 1965 for the col-
legiate title.
The general opinion seems to
be, however, that the Wolverines'
depth won't help them so much
in the NCAA's, where only six
places in each event earn points
instead of the 12 places scored
in the Big Ten meet.
Minnesota, behind freestyler
Steve Jackman and butterflyer
Walt Richardson, won six first
places in the conference meet and
would have beaten Michigan han-
dily by the six-place scoring sys-
Repeat Performance?
"We don't have the big guns,"
Stager conceded. "We could be as
bad as fifth this year," he pre-
dicted, remembering how Michi-
gan flopped to fourth in last sea-
son's NCAA meet after being
rated nearly even with Minnesota,
Southern Cal and Ohio State, the
eventual champion.
Last year Nelson was in top
form for the meet, scoring 121/2 of
Michigan's 32 points. Besides his
touch-out victory over Princeton's
Gardiner Green in the 100, he{
came up with a surprise secondl

place in the 200, his weaker dis-
tance, behind Minnesota's Virg
Nelson finally defeated Luken
at 200 yds. last week in a heat of
the AAU meet, although neither
man qualified for the finals. Nel-
son also placed fourth in the 100,
the event in which he became an
American record-holder before he
swam his first victory race for
Good Old Days
Nelson has since bettered his
old record (1:02.4) many times,
but so have other swimmers. The
record pending now is :58.5 by
Indiana's Chet Jastremski, whom
Nelson has not defeated since the
Big Ten meet two years ago when
both were sophomores.
Nelson's best so far is 1:01.3,
although he has done 1:00.6 with
a flying start on a relay. And al-
though Nelson also established a
personal best of 2:17.0 at 200 yds.
this year, Stager is a little wor-
"He can win the 100. but he
might not even qualify for the
200, and that doesn't help the
team much. On the other hand, he
could get hot and swim a good
200," Stager commented.
John Rowe of Southern Metho-
dist is Stager's personal choice in
the 200 after his excellent 2:13.9
last week.
Bartsch Starts Collection
Wile Nelson is trying to keep his
string of NCAA victories intact,
Bartsch will be trying to start one.
He earned a berth on the U.S.
Pan-American team last week by
placing second in the AAU 100-yd.
backstroke (:53.5) after he had
tied for third in the 200 (1:58.5).
The trick was that nobody who
beat him was eligible. for the
NCAA championships-not Chuck
Bittick ' (U.S. Navy), who won
both races; not Tom Stock (In-
diana), who finished second at
200 yds.; and not Rich McGeagh
(Southern California freshman),
who tied Bartsch in the longer
Has Good Chance
Now that Bartsch has defeated
Ohio State's L. B. Schaefer and
Princeton's Jed Graef, first and
second, respectively, in last year's
NCAA's, Stager thinks the Phila-
delphia sophomore has a good
chance to become a double win-
Besides Nelson and Bartsch,
Stager is entering 12 other men
in the meet: sophomores , Lanny
Reppert, Jim Riutta and Ed
Boothman; juniors Jeff Moore,
Jeff Longstreth, Tom Dudley, Roy
Burry, Geza Bodolay and Frank
Berry; and seniors Pete Cox,
Steve Thrasher and John Du-
mont, the captain.
The only ones to place last year
were Burry, fourth in the 1500-
meter freestyle, and Cox, fourth
in the three-meter dive. Nelson,
Longstreth and Berry all swam on
the sixth-place medley relay team.

Two others who placed last
year, however, will not make the
trip this time: Jon Baker, fourth
in the 200-yd. breaststroke, and
Warren Uhler, sixth in the 1500-
meter freestyle. The Wolverines
are deep in both positions this
And while Stager is counting on
depth in all events to keep his
team near the top, Yale and Min-
nesota are counting almost en-
tirely on their freestyle sprinters.
The Elis have the finest free-
style relay team in history in
Steve Clark, Mike Austin, Ed
Townsend and Dave Lyons, but
their only other standout is back-
stroker Roger Goettsche.
Besides Jackman and Richard-
son, Minnesota has freestylers
Ralph Allen and Mike Stauffer,
and all the other teams are hop-
ing that the two will nullify each
other in the freestyle events.
USC Equals 'X'
Perennially s t r o n g Southern
California is something of an un-
known quantity, but does have
backstroker Bob Bennett and dis-
tance man Tsuyoshi Yamanaka,
both former Olympians, and ver-
satile John House, third in the
200-yd. individual medley last
Ohio State boasts two of the
best divers in the country in Lou
Vitucci and Juan Botella. Stager
thinks these two plus Bill Glueck
can take 26 points in two events.
The Buckeyes also have NCAA
champions Schaefer and Marty
Mull, both of whom have had poor
seasons, however.
Stager figures that the deciding
factor in the meet for Michigan
will be how the Wolverines com-
pare with Ohio State in the in-
dividual medley, backstroke and
"If they're tougher than we are
there, then they're going to knock
us down," he said. "All they need
is a little help. If they get lucky,
they could wind up in second

AAU Officials Refuse
To Sanction LA Relays

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA-Atty. Gen. Eugene
Cook said yesterday telephone
records showed that Wally Butts,
former Georgia athletic director,
had placed calls to persons who
had been involved in gambling on
college sports events.
"But there is no evidence that
Butts was engaged in gambling,"
said Cook. The attorney general
also indicated his investigation
had shown no violation of state
laws in alleged telephone conver-
sations between Butts and coach
Paul (Bear) Bryant of Alabama.
Not Legal
Cook indicated that final dis-
position of the Butts-Bryant case
would be up to the Southeastern
Conference as an ethical, not
legal, matter.
The Saturday Evening Post said
in its March 23 edition that Butts
telephoned Bryant and gave away
Georgia's football secrets eight
days before the Sept. 22 game
which Alabama won 35-0.
Butts and Bryant have denied
the charges. Butts has filed a $10
million libel suit against the Post
publishers. Both men have denied
gambling on football games.
"Tabulations of telephone calls
placed by Butts were made to
some persons who had records of
having been involved in gambling
on intercollegiate contests," Cook
Some of the calls were made
shortly before the alleged Sept. 14
call from Butts to Bryant, Cook
The attorney general said the
calls were under investigation by
the United States Senate Investi-
gations Committee. Chief Counsel
Donald F. O'Donnell of the com-
mittee was not available for
No Evidence
O'Donnell said Tuesday he had
found no evidence of gambling in
connection with the Post story and

that his investigation might take
three months.
Butts'attorney, William H. Sch-
roder, said he understood Cook's
statement "informed the public
that there is no evidence that
Coach Wallace Buttswas engaged
in gambling.
"O'Donnell has repeatedly stat-
ed that he uncovered no evidence
that either Coach Butts or Coach
Bryant had been or were engaged
in any gambling activity, and he
is working hand in hand with Mr.
Cook's office.

"As I understand it, it is Mr.
O'Donnell's mission to investigate
this field and not that of Mr,
"I cannot understand how one
holding the high position of attor-
ney general . . . could in one
breath insinuate that he had un-
covered evidence which implies
that Wallace Butts had gambled
on football games and then in the
very next breath say there is no
evidence to support such an in-

Outlawing of Boxing
Predieted by Engle





By The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES - A member of
the executive board of the South-
ern California Committee for the
Olympic Games charged a top
national AAU official yesterday
with discriminating against the
annual Los Angeles Coliseum Re-
Frank Bull, a member of the
committee which stages the re-
lays, said his group talked by long
distance telephone Tuesday with
Col. Donald Hull, executive direc-
tor of the AAU.
The AAU, Bull said has denied
sanction to the relays, scheduled
for May 17.
"We asked Hull why the AAU
would sanction the 'Drake and
Penn Relays but not our relays,"

said Bull. In both meets college
and AAU athletes competed.
"He replied it was because we
were the biggest."
Hull, in New York, was not
available for comment.
The U. S. Track and Field Fed-
eration, involved in a row with
the AAU, has given its sanction
to the meet.
"We sent out simultaneous re-
quest to the AAU and the Federa-
tion for their respective sanc-
tions," Bull said. "Apparently the
Federation got it first and ap-
proved it.
"The Southern California Com-
mittee has always maintained
equal relations with the AAU and
the colleges. We favor neither in
the present controversy.

WASHINGTON - Sen. C 1 a i r
Engle (D-Calif), co-sponsor of a
bill to put professional boxing un-
der federal regulation, predicted
yesterday the sport will be out-
lawed in this country unless it is
Referring to the fatal ring in-
juries suffered recently by former
featherweight champion D a v e y
Moore in California, Engle said in
a statement: "In this tragic death,
the nation and the world have
witnessed a requiem for a boxer."
He added: "It may be that we
are also witnessing the requiem
for boxing itself.
"The sport is on trial. The
charge is legalized manslaughter
and corruption. And the odds-on
favorite, I would say, is the prose-

cution. Unless something is done
in a hurry, chances for acquittal
are slight."
Engle has joined Sen. Estes Ke-
fauver (D-Tenn) in introducing a
bill providing for a national box-
ing commissioner to license fight-
ers, promoters and managers, to
get fitness and health check-up
standards, and otherwise to regu-
late professional boxing.
