Russell Seeks Pro

By The Associated Press
CHICAGO-Cazzie Russell, All-
America from Michigan and the
No. 1 draft choice of the New
York Knickerbockers of the Na-
tional Basketball Association, said
yesterday he'd junk the sport
which made him famous if base-
ball "makes me the right offer."
Russell refused to say what the
right offer would be but mdi-
cated it would have to reach the
$100,000 mark.
Russell worked out with the
Chicago White Sox over the week-
end and although he hit a few
lobs into the stands his fielding
left much to be desired.
Russell, saying he didn't know
anything about money which he
leaves up to his attorney, Arthur
Morse of Chicago, indicated the
Knicks have not come closer to
the $100,000 figure Morse report-
edly has set for Cazzie's services.

"The last I heard," said Rus-
sell, "is they have offered $38,000."
Ryun Sets Record
LOS ANGELES-America's fast-

he'll be the world champion miler.

of France's Michel Jazy by one-
tenth of a second as he turned
in a remarkable 3:53.7 perform-
ance at the Compton Invitational
Saturday night at the Los An-
geles Coliseum.
"I was not disappointed," Ry-
un said of his near miss, "but I
feel I could have run a little

he would like to run against Jazy

Big Ten champion Michigan
State dethroned defending cham-
pion Kansas at South Bend, In-
diana, Saturday by capturing four
firsts in the Central Collegiate
Conference outdoor track meet.

The best Michigan could do was
six points and a tie for twelfth
place in the meet. The only scores
for Michigan were Bob DonnellyI
with a third in the discus and
Captain-elect Jack Harvey, whoI
took a third in the shot put.
Harvey and Donnelly were both
Big Ten champions in their re-
spective events and Harvey set a
conference record on his way to
the title.
Crews Sets Record
In the Central Collegiate meet
Harvey tossed the shot 58' 51/2"
but took a back seat to Mis-
souri's Gene Crews whoset a meet
record with a throw of 59' 82".
Donnelly's third place discus
throw traveled just over 166' but
was not good enough to win.
Michigan State won the meet
with 4912 points to 41 points for
Western Michigan and Southern
Illinois, which tied for second. De-
fending champion Kansas finish-
ed fourth with 37 points.
Three Individual Champs
The Spartans' three individual
firsts were scored by Gene Wash-
ington in the 120-yard high
hurdles, Big Ten recordholder
John Spain in the half mile and
Bob Steele in the 440-yard inter-
mediate hurdles. The MSU Big
Ten champion mile-relay team
also w on a title.
Steele's time of :50.8 in the
440-yard hurdles tied the meet
record in the event.
Besides the marks of Crews and
Steele, records were set in four
other events.
Herdon Outstanding Athlete I
Missouri'shSteve Herdon set a
meet record of 7' 1':1" in the high
jump and was named outstanding
athlete of the meet for his effort.
John Vernon of Southern Il-
linois went 50' 814" to set a
record in the triple jump, and an
automatic meet mark was set in
a new event-the 3,000-meter
steeplechase. The steeplechase was
won by Jack Bachelor of Miami of

the long jump which had beent
held by Olympic star Jesse Owenst
since 1936. His leap was 25' 61/4".
The meet was a prelude to two
important meets in the next two
weeks in the Midwest-the U.S.
Federation Championships at Terre
Haute, Indiana on June 10-11 and
