Jones Tops
McRae Again
In Hurdles
Special to The Daily3
CLEVELAND -- Hayes Jones
made it four straight over Michi-
gan's Bennie McRae last night
when he defeated the Wolverine
star by four yards in the 50-yd.
high hurdles at Cleveland's
Knights of Columbus games.
The former Eastern Michigan
flash was timed in :06.1 as he
completed a sweep of all indoor
hurdle races this season.
In contrast to last weekend when
he was beaten only a stride by
Jones, McRae was never close last
night. Jones beat him to the first
hurdle and slowly lengthened his
lead until he hit the tape.
Relay Team Beaten
Michigan's two mile relay team,
winner at the Milwaukee Journal
Games last weekend, couldn't
come close last night as it finished
behind Manhattan and Yale.
The winning Manhattan team
was timed in 7:33.0, only two-
tenth sof a second off the record it
set last month. in New York. How-
ever, the time was the fastest ever
run on a 12-lap oval and knocked
almost two seconds off the meet
mark set by Yale a year ago. Yale
was some 70 yards behind Man-
hattan last night.
Another Record
Another meet record was set by
George Kerr, the swift former Illi-
nois star, by way of Jamaica. In
the 600-yd. run Kerr bested Pur-
due's Big Ten 440 champ Dave
Mills in a hot duel to win in 1:10.1
Kerr, who set the world record
for the event earlier this month
in New York withea clocking of
1:09.3, wiped out Mills' early pace
and beat him by five yards. Both
were under the meet mark of
1:10.8 set in 1950 by Mal Whit-
A Purdue freshman, Nate
Adams, avenged his teammate's'
defeat a little later, however, when
he won the 50-yd. dash in :05.3,
beating Paul Drayton of Villanova
and Fred Booker of Baldwin-Wal-
The classic mile run was won
by Toi. O'Hara, an 18-year-old
Irish freshman from Loyola of
Chicago, who thrilled the St. Pat-
rick's Day crowd by coming from
ten yards back on the final lap to
win in 4:08.8. George Harvey of
Purdue was second.

Ohio State Scared by Louisville, 56-55

Special to The Dailyl
Ohio State 56, Louisville 55
Kentucky 71, Morehead 64
LOUISVILLE-It took a missed
foul shot at the last second of
play to do it, but Ohio State pulledl
one out of the fire to edge a spir-
ited Louisville quintet here last
night, 56-55, before a partisan
crowd of more than 18,000 Free-
dom Hall fans.
Kentucky beat Morehead State,
71-64, in the second game of the
Mid-Eastern regional champion-'
ships and will play the Buckeyes
tonight to determine the region's
representative to the NCAA finals'
at Kansas City next weekend.
It was an uphill battle all the
way for the defending national
champions. They were behind most
of the game, and had to rely on
some slick late game ball-handling
by Larry Siegfried and John Hav-
licek to win their 30th straight
contest, and 25th of this year.
Cardinals Ahead
With as little as 2:30 remaining
in the game, the Cardinals led by
six markers, 54-48, much to the
excitement of the overflowing
crowd which jumped to its feet
with frenzied excitement when-
ever the Cardinals made a basket.
The Buckeyes pulled up to with-
in three points, 54-51, and then
Siegfried, the 6'4 senior captain
took over.
Ohio State was putting on one
of their tight defensive presses
when Siegfried stole the ball and
went all the way for a layup.
Fouled while shooting, his extra
point knotted the score at 54-all.
Went into Stall
A missed Cardinal shot gave the
Buckeyes the ball again, and Fred
Taylor decided to have his charges
stall, And play for the good shot.
However, with just one minute
remaining, Havlicek traveled, giv-
ing Louisville a chance to go
One again Siegfried took over
though. He stole the ball and,
after a missed shot by Mel Nowell
and a Buckeye time out, Havlicek
pumped in the winning tally with
a 30-foot jump shot to give OSU
a 56-54 lead.
Despite Siegfried's heroics, he
could have become the game's
goat. With just four seconds re-
maining, he fouled John "Turner
in an attempt to steal the ball
Missed His Second
Left with a one and one situa-
tion, Turner made his first try and
it looked as if the contest would
go into overtime. But his second
shot bounced off the rim, and in
the ensuing scramble the clock ran
The Buckeye win was far from

its best of the season. They looked1
ragged, especially in the first half,
making many more than their us-
ual amount of -mistakes.
Jerry Lucas, their great All-'
American, was especially off his
game, throwing the ball away no
fewer than five times before inter-:
mission. In addition, he was also
off in the shooting department,1
and finished with only nine points.
W. Forest 78, St. Bonaventure 73
CHARLOTTE (?)--Wake For-
est's dashing Deacons fashioned
another basketball miracle last
night, upsetting St. Bonaventure,
the nation's third-ranked team,
78-73, to join St. Joseph's of Phil-
adelphia in the finals of the NCAA
Eastern Regional Basketball Tour-
Wake Forest, showing the same
drive and desire that carried it to,
the Atlantic Coast Conference ti-
tle and a surprise victory over St..
John's in its opening NCAA test
three nights earlier, nursed the
lead through the final furious 15
St. Bonaventure held a five-
point lead early in the second
half, but Wake Forest shot ahead
49-48 with 15 minutes left and
protected its margin in the face
of the Bonnies' strong stretch

St. Joseph 72, Princeton 67
CHARLOTTE (P)-St. Joseph's
of Philadelphia, never behind but
closely pursued most of the way,
finally caged Princeton's pesky
Tigers 72-67 last night in the
opening game of the NCAA East-
ern Regional Basketball Tourna-
ment semifinals.
St. Joseph's led by 10 points,
61-51 with six minutes to play
when Art Hyland, Princeton's
sophomore sparkplug, fouled out.
After the teams exchanged four-
point bursts, the margin remain-
ed at 10 points with 3:30 remain-
ing. '
Kansas St. 75, Houston 64
LAWRENCE (A')-Kansas State
double-teamed Houston with its
"nine equal men" for a 75-64 vic-
tory last night in the semifinals
of the Midwest Regional NCAA
Basketball Tournament.
K-State Coach Tex Winter won
his fourth Big Eight conference
championship in the last five
years with what he called "nine
players about equal in ability who
have shown me that they can do
a good job, any combination of
them at just about any time."
He proved it last night, shut-
tling his men in and out constant-
ly after making a wholesale "pla

toon" move in the early going'
when the Wildcat starters couldn't
seem to click.
The second unit, with Mike
Wroblewski flipping in 16 points,,
changed a 14-8 Houston lead to a
16-14 K-State advantage - and
seemed to ignite the whole team.'
Another eight-point binge took
the Wildcats to a 33-29 half time
lead, the waves of K-State substi-
tutions continued, and everybody
had a hand in the victory.

Cincinnati 78, Texas Tech 55
LAWRENCE (-) - Cincinnati's
Bearcats, big, bold and better all
the way, crushed out-classed Tex-
as Tech 78-55 and pushed their
winning streak to 19 last night in
the opening semifinal game of the
NCAA Midwest Regional Basket-
ball Tournament.
The Bearcats of new coach Ed
Jucker, unbeaten since their eighth
game of the season last Decem-
ber, fought and shot away from
Tech, a young, inexperienced team
which surprised even itself .in
winning the Southwest Conference
From a 16-12 lead with eight
minutes remaining in the half,
the Bearcats whipped in eight

straight points-four each by 6-9,
240-pound Paul' Hogue and 6-4,
220-pound Bob Wiesenhahn - to
shake off the tall-enough but too-
skinny raiders and rush to a 37-
20 half time lead.

Utah 91, Loyola 75
PORTLAND (AP)-The University
of Utah paced by its 6-foot-9 Billy
McGill defeated Loyola of Los
Angeles 91-75 in the first semifin-
al game of the Far West NCAA
Regional Basketball playoff.
Loyola's high-scoring Ed Bento
fouled out with 12 minutes left in
the second half. However, by then
Utah was in front 66-57.
Bento has picked up 13 points
in the first half, but- only 2 before
leaving in the second period.
Loyola was extremely hot from
outside early in the game and had
a 23-19 lead after 10 minutes.
Utah shifted out of its zone de-
fense and put an end to the Loyola
lead. Meanwhile, McGill, with
hooks and jump shots, led first
half scoring with 16 and he added
nearly as many the second half.

At Last

NEW YORK (I)-Three college
basketball players yesterday were
accused of accepting bribes of
$1,000 and $1,500 in a new out-
break of game-fixing which police'
say may dwarf the gambling scan-
dals of 1951.
Before the present investiga-
tion is completed, an informant
said, a total of 15 to 25 colleges,
including at least three from New
York City, probably will be drawn'
into the giant web.
The office of District Attorney
Frank S. Hogan announced the'
arrest of two men, described as
representatives of a nationwide
syndicate, and charged them with
bribery and conspiracy in an at-
tempt to rig college games.
The men were listed as Aaron
Wagman, 28, also known as Al
Wagner and Al Williams, and. Jo-
seph Hacken, 41, both of New
York. Both have been involved in
previous cases, one involving foot-
ball and the other boxing, the
District Attorney said.
A University of Connecticut
player, not identified, received
$1,500 to shave points in a game
against Colgate at Hamilton, N.Y.,
March 1, Assistant Dist. Atty. Pe-
ter D. Andreoli said, and two Se-
ton Hall players collected $1,000
each for their part in a game.
against Dayton at Madison Square
Garden Feb; 9.
The Seton Hall players were
identified as Henry Gunter, a
center from New York, and Ar-
thur Hicks, a forward from Chi-
cago. Each is 21 years old.
Andreoli said the players were
questioned but not held, and add-
ed: "both are cooperating in our
probe." They were reported stay-

Arraigned in general sessions
court, Wagman was held in $50,-
000 bail and Hacken in $25,000.
Both face from one to 10 years'
imprisonment and a fine up to
$10,000, or both, if convicted.
Details of the alleged game-
fixing attempts were not disclos-
ed. Hogan's officemerely said
Wagman's action occurred Feb. 28
in connection with the Connecti-
cut-Colgate game and Hacken's
contact was made Feb. 9 in con-
nection with the Dayton-Seton
Hall game.
Colgate beat Connecticut 83-71.
Dayton beat Seton Hall at the
Garden 112-77.
Basketball followers recalled
that both games aroused suspi-'
cions at the time.
Dayton originally was listed as
a 6-point favorite but later the
game was knocked off the betting
boards. This was a sign the book-
makers refused to take any more,

project by itself.
Clears $32,000
As its annual report shows, the
athletic department:cleared a mere
$32,000 in the fiscal year ending
June 30, 1960. Because of several
factors (a drop in football reve-
nues, increased cost in the aid
program and general inflation) a
good-sized defiicit is anticipated
for the fiscal year ending in June.
Thus, the athletic department
might not be able to finance the
project after all - without state
appropriations or some other
sources of revenue.
Appealing to outside sources
would be a break in precedent
since the University athletic de-
partment is unique in that it is
entirely self-supporting. Depend-
ent mainly on football revenues,
the athletic department has been
financially autonomous -- able to
pay all its annual expenses and
provide for new facilities such as
the Varsity Swim Pool and the
Athletic Administration Building.

Pistons Trounce Lakers
For Initial Playoff Win


DTROIT (/M) - The' Detroit
?istons stayed alive in the West-
rn Division playoffs of the Na-
onat Basketball Association by
ihipping the Los Angeles Lakers,
24-113 last night.
The victory, Detroit's first in the
est-of-five series after two
osses to the Lakers at Los An-
eles, forces a fourth meeting be-
ween the teams here today on
ational television (NBC).
Bob Ferry and George Lee
parked the second period explo-
ion which brought the Pistons
rom a 25-24 deficit after the first
uarter to a 66-50 advantage at
alftime. During the uprising, Lee
ossed in 17 points and Ferry con-
ributed 14.
The Pistons continued to fatten
heir lead in the third period, with

Walter Dukes and Bailey Howell
providing the scoring fire. The
Piston margin was as high as 25
points at times.
A switch in defensive assign-
ments in which Dukes was, as-
signed to guard Laker star Elgin
Baylor helped tremendously in the
Pistons romp. Baylor, who had
averaged 44.5 points in the two
games on the coast, was held to
only 26 last night.
Baylor made 16 in the first half,
eight in the third period and two
at the start of the fourth quarter
before he was removed.
The Pistons had seven players
in double figures, led by Ferry
with 30 and Lee with 23. Frank
Selvy with 22 took runner-up hon-
ors to Baylor for the losers.
