)EFEND TWO TITLES:
Trackmen Depart
For Penn Relays

THE MICHIGAN DAILY
Fitzgerald Joins Barden as Titlist hi

By DAVE BLOCK
Franklin Field in Philadelphia
today and tomorrow will host the
68th annual running of the Penn
Relays.
Michigan, along with some 103
other colleges and 26 high schools,
will be competing for 117 assorted
individual and relay track titles.
The Wolverines are defending'
champions in the two and four
mile relays; however, Coach Don
Canham and the boys expect to
encounter considerable opposition
in their attempt to retain these
crowns.,.,-.
Wildcats Tough
The Wildcats of Villanova ap-
pear to be the most formidable
obstacle to Michigan's retention
of these titles. This powerful east-
ern- team has already captured
this year's indoor AAU and IC4A
championships, and could very
possibly grab up four relay crowns
at stake in the Penn meet. This
feat has not been accomplished
since the Wolverines did it in
1945.
) Michigan is entering a good four
mile relay team this year. It fea-
tures Charlie Aquino, the Big Ten
indoor 1000 yd. champion for two
years running and the record
holder in this event.

{ 8-1 Net Win
Special To The Daily
KALAMAZOO - The Michigan
tennis squad rolled over Western
Michigan yesterday, 8-1. The
match was highlighted by Ray
Senkowski's 6-2, 6-3 win over the
Bronco's Bob Gill in first singles.
Senkowski, who was serving well,
felt the best match was John Fra-
ser's close victory over his Bronco
opponent. Fraser was extended to
three sets before beating the
scrappy competitor.
Other single's victories were
scored by Brian Flood, Hale Lowe,
and Ron Linclau; Bo Barker suf-
fering the only loss.
Michigan scored victories in all
the doubles matches. Senkowski
and Fraser's 6-4, 7-5 triumph was,
over a pair which had extended
the fine Northwestern doubles
team to three sets earlier.
The matches, played on "hard
courts,'' were viewed by a sizable
crowd.
The netmens' next opponent will
be Notre Dame, here on Saturday
afternoon at 2 p.m.
Major League
Standings

The second member of this
team is Des Ryan, a sophomore
from Dublin who possesses great
potential as a distance runner.
The two returning competitors
from last year's victorious team
are veteran miler Jim Neahusan
and Dave Hayes, who has already
clipped off a mile in 4:12 in prac-
tice this spring.

Double on Two-Mile
Hayes and Aquino also partici-
pate on the two mile relay squad,
as do Dorr Casto, a greatly im-
proved half-miler, and Ted Kelly,
a former Michigan state high
school champion who ran an ex-
ceptionally fast 1:53.1 indoor half
mile this season.
Kent Bernard, as the anchor
man on the mile relay team, is
possibly the greatest asset of the
Michigan relay squads. His :47.0
In the last leg of the mile relay
during the indoor Big Ten cham-
pionships was the country's fast-
est quarter mile run on a relay
during the season, as the indi-
vidual Big Ten 440-yd champion-
ship was won with a time of :48.5.
Joining Bernard on this team
are Carter Reese, a senior who
has twice placed in the Big Ten
indoor 300-yd. dash during his
Michigan career and is considered
to be better than ever this year.
The third man on the team is
Dave Romain, a junior from the
West Indies who has shown
marked improvement this year as
evidenced by his excellent time of
:48.7 as leadoff man during the
Big Ten mile relay.
Hughes Runs :49.4
Rounding out the team is Dan
Hughes, a promising sophomore
from Columbus, Ohio, who placed
fifth in the indoor 600-yd. run,
and just last week he sprinted a
time of :49.4 as a member of the
Wolverine mile relay team in the
Ohio Relays.
At Philadelphia the Michigan
sprint medley team will feature
Bernard running the 440 and
Reese and Romain running the
220. Romain will be running this
distance for the first time since
his days of high school competi-
tion. Ryan will run the 880 as the
anchor man in this event.
In other events, Al Ammerman
is participating in the high jump
and George Puce is entered in
both the shot put and the discus.
Ernst Soudek is also entered in
the discus and this giant from
Vienna has already slipped the
discus 177'4" this year, a distance
which could be good enough to
win the Penn meet.
Indlans Pose
Drake Th reat
DES MOINES (')-Texas South-
ern has dominated the Drake Re-
lays for the past two years but
Stanford will offer a strong chal-
lenge for team honors in the track
and field meet here today and to-
morrow.
The fleet Texas Southern run-
ners won four races and set two
records a year ago. They are fa-
vored in at least four relays this
year.
Stanford Coach Payton Jordan
also has his sights set on several
ready have marks better than
Drake titles, and tme Indians al-
records in three Drake events.
Harry McCalla, who has run
an open mile in 4:01.5 this year,
heads Stanford's four-mile and
university distance medley relay
teams.
Jordan says his four-mile team
of McCalla, Bob Miltz, Harlan
Andrews, and Bill Pratt should be
able to run the distance in 4:30,
which would cut 20 seconds off
the Drake standard.
Stanford also is a leading con-
tender in the mile and two-mile
relays.

By The Associated Press
SAO PAULO, Brazil - Former
Michigan football halfback and
Big 'Ten wrestling champion Den-
nis Fitzgerald helped the United
States to a clean sweep of eight
wrestling titles in the Pan Ameri-
can Games here last night.
Fitzgerald, at welterweight, and
former Ann Arbor High wrestler
Bill Riddle, at bantamweight, won
two of five Yankee gold medals in
the sport last night to add to the
three brought home Thursday.
Senior Jack Barden, Michigan's
Big Ten and NCAA titlist, had
won the top prize in the light
heavyweight division late Thurs-
day night by pinning his man.
United States swimmers also
won all four first places last
night, bringing the day's total to'
14 gold medals and 33 through the
whole competition.
Of 15 gold medals decided yes-
terday, the U.S. athletes took all
but one. Only the women's tennis
singles got away.-.
The U.S. also ran its silver
medal total to 12 and its bronze
collection to 10. No other nation
has won more than two gold
medals.
The U.S. maintained its monop-
oly in swimming and set three
records in the process. U.S.ath-
letes now have won all eight
swimming events, and nine of 10
in the water sport, with only men's
diving eluding them.
Three teen-agers set the swim-
ming records. Carl Robie, 17, of
Drexel Hill, Pa., won the 200-
meter butterfly in 2:11.3.
Alice Mary Driscoll of Louisville,
also 17, took the 200-meter breast-
stroke in 2:56.2 and Terri Stickles
of Santa Clara, Calif., 17 next
month, won the 100-meter free-
style in 1:02.8.
The U.S. women's 400-meter
medley relay team also won, but
failed to snap the record.
American swimmers now have
broken six records and tied a sev-
enth.
The other wrestling winners
were Joe Israel James of Chicago,
heavyweight; Greg Ruth of High-
land Falls, N.Y., lightweight; and
Andy Fitch, New York, flyweight.

Two weighlifting medals were
collected by Sid Henry of Dallas,
heavyweight, and Bill March of
York, Pa., middle heavyweight.
The U.S. team captured the
men's foil team competition with
an undefeated record, with Argen-
tina second and Venezuela third.

Patricia Galvin of San Francis-
co won the gold medal in eques-
trian dressage.
SFC Lawrence Mosely of Nor-
folk, Va., and Capt. Cecil Wallis
of Columbus, Ga., tied for first
in the rapid fire pistol event, as-
suring the U.S. of another gold
medal there. The shoot-off will
be today.
Darlene Hard of Long Beach,
Calif., and Carole Caldwell of
Santa Monica, Calif., salvaged
something from the tennis-where
both the men and women Ameri-
can entrants were eliminated in
the singles-by taking the women's
doubles title, 6-1, 7-5, over Maria
Ester Bueno and Mary Schwartz
of Brazil.
Oddly, it was only the third gold
medal the U.S. has won in tennis
in four Pan American Games.
The U.S. mixed doubles team
of Miss Hard and Frank Froehling
of Coral Gables, Fla., was elim-
inated by Miss Bueno and Thomas
Koch of Brazil in the semifinals,
7-5, 7-5.
About the only other setback
for the U.S. yesterday was in
women's volleyball, where Brazil
whipped the American girls, 12-15,
15-5, 15-10, 15-9.
U.S. yachtsmen scored victories

Celtics Take
Fifth Straight;
Cousy Retires
LOS ANGELES UP) - After an
outstanding basketball career, Bob
Cousy quit a winner.
The former Holy Cross star
scored 18 points Wednesday night
as. the Boston Celtics won their
fifth consecutive National Basket-
ball Association crown by defeat-
ing the Los Angeles Lakers, 112-
109, in the sixth game of the play-
offs.
"That was the greatest game
Cousy played in this series," said:
Tom Heinsohn in the jubilant
Celtic dressing room.
Cousy, playing his final game,
sprained his foot in the fourth
quarter and was carried to the
dressing room. The fans-capacity
15,521-gave him a standing ova-
tion.
He returned six minutes later,
his foot heavily taped, to help
stave off a frantic last-minute
Laker surge.
"How will the Celtics do next
year without you?" reporters
asked Cousy. "They'll do all right,"
he replied. "Nobody is indispens-
able."
The game pointed up the Cel-
tics' major strength - their over-
all balance. The Lakers guarded
Sam Jones tightly and held the
high-scoring forward to only five
points.
But rookie John Havlicek from
Ohio State broke through to score
18 points - 11 in a row in the
Celts' fast second period.
