'M' Track and

Golf Teams Sweep to


Newcomb, Youngberg Lead Golfers
To Upset of Three Big Ten Foes

'M' Wins Four Relays;
Locke Victor in Shotput

Special to The Daily
COLUMBUS-In a magnificent
display of team effort under un-
believable circumstances, the
Michigan golf squad literally
stormed its way to victory,
edging Ohio State by a single
stroke in the quadrangular meet
held yesterday.
The final scores, based on the
totals of all six men, had the Wol-
verines with 460, second place
Ohio State with 461, Purdue third
with 467, and Indiana last with
Oh That Weather
However, by far the mast amaz-
ing aspect of this meet was the
The meet was scheduled to be-
gin at 8:00 a.m. and 18 holes were

to be played in the morning and
18 in the afternoon.
But the weather man was not
so obliging. After two starts
which had to be called back be-
cause of the downpour, the teams
finally teed off at 10:30, but then
at about 11:30 the clouds really
opened up, and the meet was
delayed another hour by a thun-
der and lightning storm.
With the greens completely
waterlogged and the fairways sog-
ged, the golfers set out where they
had left off, and in spite of in-
termittent interruptions, due to
more rain, the golfers managed
complete 18 holes, instead of the
scheduled 36.
Honors to Newcomb
For the Wolverines Bill New-
comb took top honors with a one

over par 73. Dick Youngberg, who
lost by a single stroke to Ohio
State's Jack Nicklaus, shot a 75,
Joe Brisson scored a 76, Chuck
Newton and Mike Goode both
notched 78's and Tom Ahern scor-
ed 80.
In all, the team average was a
strong 76.6.
As could be expected the match
of the day was the number-one
match featuring OSU's superstar
Nicklaus, Michigan's Youngberg,
Purdue's Steve Wilkinson, and In-
diana's beared Dave Pelz.
Then There Were Two
However, after the first four
holes this foursome quickly be-
came a dual meet between Young-
berg and Nicklaus.
Youngberg quickly went two up
as he parred the first two holes
while Nicklaus suffered two bo-
gies. The two men played the rest
of the first nine nip and tuck,
with Nicklaus gaining one stroke
to finish one down.
At the outset of the second nine
Nicklaus came to life. In the
tenth he came out of a trap six
inches from the pin, for a par
four as compared to Youngberg's
bogey five. On the 11th Nicklaus
one-putted for a birdie to take
a one stroke lead.
Youngberg Roars
On the 14th and 15th Young-
berg came roaring back as the
OSU star had putter trouble.
Youngberg birdied the par five
14th and on the 15th, Nicklaus
shot a double bogey 6 and Young-
berg found himself up by two.
But it didn't last long for the
upset-minded Youngberg.
Nicklaus birdied the 16th for
one stroke, and on the par three
17th, he sank a 60 footer for an-
other birdie to take the lead as
Youngberg shot a bogey. That put
Nicklaus u one stroke and gave
him the match as they both par-
red the 18th.
Hot Putter
Newcomb's 73 was attributed to
his hot putter. The Michigan jun-
ior had a total of 31 putts on
the soggy greens. His first nine
total of 13 putts is almost unbe-
lievable under the circumstances.
Sam Voinoff, coach of the de-
fending Big Ten champions Pur-
due, described the Michigan vic-
tory as, "Awful good, especially
under these playing conditions."
In commenting on Michigan's
chances in the Big Ten Meet at
Indiana, Voinoff said, "Indiana
has a different kind of course, but
Michigan has a real good chance."

Pender Tops'
Basilio in 15;_
Keeps Title
By The Associated Press
BOSTON - Artful Paul Pender
retained his version of the world
middleweight title last night, us-
ing his rapier-like left hand as a
double edged weapon for a unani-
mous 15-round decision over stub-
born Carmen Basilio.
Pender twice floored the crusty
former middle- and welterweight
king. Basilio took an eight count
when hammered off his feet by
Pender's smashing left in the
13th. Paul used the left hook to
send Basilio to the canvas again
in the 15th round.
Basilio earlier had claimed he
had not been knocked down in 78
previous pro fights including 10
other title contests.
Same Old Pender
Pender, fighting his usual skill-
ful, waiting, counter - punching
game against a hard-hitting foe,
had to withstand some Basilio
bombs in the early stages before
carrying out his pre-fight battle
Referee Eddie Bradley scored
148-135 for Pender on the 10-
point "must" scoring system in
Massachusetts while judges Joe
Blumsack and Harry Sundberg
called it 147-132 and 147-138 for
the champ in this nationally tele-
vised show from Boston Garden.
Third Defense
Making his third defense of a
crown recognized in Massachu-
setts, New York and Europe, Pen-
der held off the feared Basilio
power in the early stages and
again in a late rally. The left
hand served to keep Basilio off.
stride and to land when Carmen
crouched his way in close under
Paul's stand-up style.
Basilio came out in the 13th in
a bold bid to take command. But
Pender rallied quickly and sent
Carmen down with a left. Carmen
partially fell across the ropes and
went down on one knee. After tak-
ing an eight count he got up un-
steadily just before the bell.
Carmen had Pender in trouble
in the second round with a flurry
which began with a brutal right
to the side of the head. Pender
took a series of shots to the body
and head and appeared to be
hanging on momentarily from in-

(Continued from Page 1)
Aquino and Bryan Gibson ran the
first two legs for Michigan, but
Purdue's Dave Mills. American
record-holder in the 440, pulled
15 yards out in front of the pack
on the second leg.
Martin Spurts
Then Dave Martin got almost
all of it back for Leps and the
Torontoan hung back until the
last lap, breezing past George
Harvey on the homestretch to a
safe-enough two-ward margin.
In the 440-yd. relay, Bennie Mc-
Roe, John Gregg, Don Chalfant
and Dick Cephas were in a class
by themselves, winning by ten
yards. McRae and Cephas, ordi-
narily hurdlers, left nothing to be
desired in the flat race.
Two-Mile Scare
The two-mile relay team got a
scare from Central Michigan when
Wally Schafer went out with a
two-yard deficit from Aquino and
dropped back nearly 15 yards from
the pace.
He picked it right back up,
though, and Martin stayed back a
few strides until the final turn,
when he pushed five yards ahead
and gave the baton to Leps.
Leps, running easily, increased
the , margin to 20 yards as he
crossed the finish.
In the 880-yd. relay, McRae,
Carter Reese, Gregg and Cephas
each caught his man coming off
the staggered starts and Cephas
withstood a belated challenge
from Indiana's Eddie Miles for a
three-yard margin of victory.
The sprint medley relay (440,
220, 880) was only slightly less
successful, as Marsh Dickerson,
Due to the inclement weather
yesterday both the baseball
doubleheader with Iowa and
the tennis meet with Notre
Dame were cancelled.
Bill Hornbeck, Chalfant and
Frank Geist finished third, ten
yards behind Central State (Wil-
berforce, Ohio) and Indiana.
The shot put and discus both
went on under shelter, and Locke's
heave w'as his best ever indoors.
The other field men weren't so
lucky. Les Bird and the others
were all hampered by the slop-
py runway. Bird was third at
22'9", only ten inches behind
Michigan State's winner, Sonny
Overton Over

tried his hand at the 600 and
nearly caught Michigan State
freshman John Parker, who led
all the way. Both lunged at the
tape, stumbled and fell together,
in the most exciting finish of the
day. The time was a good 1:11.7.
Hayes finished second to Tom
Sullivan, a high school whiz from
Illinois, in the 1,000-yd. run. Sul-
One Record
The only record came in the
colorful 3,000-meter steeplechase,
when the Spartans' Jerry Young
won the gruelling race in 9:30.6,
well under Press Whelan's old,
mark of 9:36.8.
The race consists of 1.8 miles
of hurdles (the kind that don't
knock you down when you catch
your toe on one) and a nice big
water barrier, which seemed al-
most unnecessary yesterday.
The sentimental favorite of the
meet was tiny sprinted Ira Murch-
ison, former Western Michigan
and Olympic star. Fully recovered
from a serious case of amebic
dysentery, he ran for the Chi-
cago Track Club, and beat Pur-
due freshman Nate Adams in the
100-yd. dash in :09.7.

ALMOST, BUT NOT QUITE-Dick Youngberg showed even better
form than this yesterday, but still lost. A bogey on the 17th lost a
one stroke lead, as Jack Nicklaus took full advantage.

Marks Fall, at Kansas Relays

By The Associated Press
LAWRENCE, Kan.--North Texas
State's Eagles put together four
fast baton carriers to break the
university distance medley record
in 9:49.3 in the Kansas Relays
It was the fastest distance med-
ley this spring.
John Cooper anchored the Eagles
home with 4:07.1 mile. Richard
Bothmer ran the 440-leg in :48.7,
John Spencer the half mile in
1:53.6 and Richard Menchaca the
three-quarters in 2:59.9.
Menchaca's fine three - quarter
trick enabled North Texas to whip
Missouri by 30 yards and break
the Relay's record of 9:50.8, set by
Oklahoma in 1958.
Break 440 Record
For the second straight day,
Texas Southern of Houston broke
the, colleg division record for the
440-yard relay. Homer Jones, Bar,
ney Allen, Charles Frazier and
Lester Milburn won in :41.0, one-
tenth of a second faster than their
qualifying time yesterday. The old
record was :41.4 by East Texas
John Fry of Baylor became a
double winner with a 57-3 shotput.
He beat defending champion Mike
Lindsay, Oklahoma; who had a put
of 56-9%. Both were far off their
best form. Fry won the discus
yesterday at 170-7/.

Fail To Win
For the first time since World
War II the host Kansas Jayhawks
failed to win an event although
one of its former greats, Cliff
Cushman, captured the AAU 400
meters hurdles yesterday.
Ralph Alspaugh of Texas, who
ran third in the slow University-
College 100, won the special 100 in
:09.8. He beat second place Henry
Wiebe, former Missouri runner,
and Dave Styron of Southern Illi-
nois. Charlie Tidwell, ex-Kansas

Thompson Leads Houston
HOUSTON-Peter Thomson lost
a two-stroke lead and then sank
birdie putts on the two final holes
to rescue a tie with Ken Venturi
and Tommy Bolt for the 54-hole
lead in the $40,000 Houston Golf
Thomson, the leader after 18
and 36 holes, had seen Bolt and
Venturi surge into the lead on the
sixteenth green. The Australian
then sank a 15 footer on the sev-
enteenth and a 4-footer on the
,final green for a two-over-par 72
and a 54-hole 208.

Steve Overton went as high as Botted
anybody, 13'6", in the pole vault,
but on the basis of fewest misses,
Purdue's Mike Johnson was the
