Chip finished his performance.
The judges held up their point
cards. Phil then wound up his
exhibition, and again the judges
Both scores came out the same,
another tie for the Fullers, this
time behind teammate and na-
tional champion Mike Henderson.
This particular meet was against
Iowa, Michigan's biggest chal-
lenger for the Big Ten title, and
the victory just about wrapped up
the team championship for the
Wolverines. But to Phillip and
Charles Fuller, it was no new ex-
perience. They've been raking in
firsts, seconds, and thirds all sea-
son long, with remarkably iden-
tical scores and performances.
"I wish they weren't such iden-
tical twins," says head gymnastics
mentor Newt Loken. "It's rather
difficult to separate them."
See Double
In fact, some observers refuse
to believe that they are two sep-
arate persons, and think that
Loken is just trying to add more
team points by using the same
man twice.
Sometimes this works to their
disadvantage. "Someone will pass
us on the street and say 'Hi, Chip,'
and I'll turn around and see a
total stranger," Phil claims. When
the stranger is not recognized,
the twin who isn'tthere finds a
friend mad at him for no apparent
At times when they are to-
gether, incidents such as this oc-
cur, Phil remarks. "Somebody says,
'You got your hair cut short,' and
we'll look at each other rather
than in a mirror."
Other times someone will ask a
question in general, and the sopho-
more twins will find themselves
answering at the same time with
matching words.
How are they different? "I'm the
good looking one," kids Phil, while
his look-alike is not around.
Differences Academic
What distinctions there are be-
tween them are most apparent in
the academic aspect of their life.
Chip is in engineering school, and
plans to enter the field of chemi-
cal engineering-perhaps in metal-

Phil, enrolled in lit school, isn't
sure of his major yet- "maybe
speech," he says.
Both feel that the transition
from the high school in Pensacola,
Florida, to Michigan was hard.
Chip had the harder time because
few of his high school courses had
prepared him for engine school.
The twins had decided while in
high school that they wanted to
go to a northern college. And it
was a Michigan grad who was
largely responsible for directing
them to Ann Arbor.
Why Gymnastics
As freshmen in high school,
Chip and Phil had lost their
father. To keep them busy and
help keep their minds off their
father, their mother sent them to
a trampoline course at the Pen-
sacola Naval Base, where their
father had been an officer. It was
there that they learned the fun-
damentals of gymnastics.
"The cadets at the base helped
us a lot," says Phil, "and every
now and then we'd meet someone
who had gone to Michigan."
Two of these were Phil Noggle
and Lew Fenner, a couple of ex-
Wolverine gymnastics performers.
Noggle coached them-along for
some time, and then turned them
over to Loken.
"I got a call from Phil Noggle
one day," says Loken, "and he
recommended them to me." The
following fall they were on the
Wolverines" frosh gym team.
"Like Cliff Chilvers," Loken
goes on, "they both started out
as all-around men, but they found
the going too tough. So we settled
them for the two events they now
work in-floor ex and vaulting."
Brrrr Cold
Loken is very obviously pleased
with this dual addition to his
team, and the Fullers have found
Ann Arbor to their liking, too,
despite the academic pressure.
"The winter weather is the only
thing we don't like," they com-
Chip and Phil consider their
biggest thrill just being on Mich-
igan's team, "working under a

"We each sort of keep the other
in the straight and narrow," ex-
plains Phil. "We can't afford to
'fluff off.' If one of us does better
in one meet, the other has to put
out in the next one. If it weren't
for my brother, I'd probably sluff
off a little."
Point Producers
But there has been little or no
sluffing off by the touted two-
some. In seven dual meets this
season, Chip and Phil have rack-
ed up two firsts, eight seconds,

NEW YORK (zP) - The spirited
early bidding between major post-
season college basketball tourna-
ments for leading independent
teams resulted yesterday in the
corraling of the coveted Villanova
Wildcats by the National Invita-
tion Tournament.
Announcement of Villanova's
Bills Swap
Gilchrist for
broncos' Joe
BUFFALO, N.Y. (A') - Cookie
Gilchrist, stormy fullback of the
Buffalo Bills, was traded yester-
day to the American Football
League's Denver Broncos for full-
back Billy Joe, the AFL's Rookie
of the Year in 1963.
Gilchrist, 30, and with the Bills
for three seasons, was fired, tem-
porarily, Nov. 17 for what Coach
Lou Saban said was "the good of
the team."
He was let go, Saban said, be-
cause he refused to reenter the
Boston game just before halftime
and complained in the dressing
room at intermission that quarter-
back Jack Kemp had not given
him the ball often enough.
Thirty-six hours later, Gil-
christ was reinstated after he ask-
ed his teammates for another
chance. He also apologized to Sa-
ban for his actions off and on the
Gilchrist twice won the AFL
rushing title and in 1962 was
voted by the Associated Press as
the league's Most Valuable Player.
Joe, 24, a Villanova graduate,
is a 250-pounder who gained 415
yards in 111 carries last year, de-
spite foot trouble. In 1963, he
gained 649 yards, seventh best in
the league.

willingness to play in the 14-team
New York tourney, plus accept-
ances from Boston College and
Detroit, came shortly after the
Wildcats had rejected a bid ex-
tended by National Collegiate Ath-
letic. Association tournament offi-
The NCAA, however; received
acceptances from six teams. They
were Providence, 19-1; Dayton,
17-6; DePaul, 16-6; Penn State,
17-3; Houston, 18-7; and Colorado
State, 13-6. Detroit, 16-7, also was
invited as a replacement for Vil-
lanova, but the Titans already
had accepted the NIT offer.
The NCAA, with two at-large
berths to fill in the East and eight
more in other sections, had a one-
hour head start on the NIT under
an agreement effective this year.
Villanova, which ended Provi-
dence's unbeaten streak at 19
games Tuesday night, declined the
NCAA invitation because it was
asked to play in the Mid-East re-
gionals at Western Kentucky
starting March 9.
Art Mahan, Villanova's athletic
director, pointed out that six
school days for 'the tournament
would be too much for the players
to lose. In the NIT, the players
will be able to commute between
classes and competition.
"We would have taken the
NCAA bid if we had been assigned
to the regionals in Philadelphia,"
said Jack Kraft, the Wildcats'
coach. "We're very pleased with
the NIT invitation and I feel this
is a reward for our record."
The Wildcats' victory over Pro-
vidence, ranked fourth in the
latest Associated Press poll, was
their 18th in 22 games. They are
led by Bill Melchionni, a 6-foot
junior who is averaging 19 points
a game.

and four thirds in floor exercise,
as well as three first places and
a variety of other point producing
spots in vaulting.
They have a common goal in
their sights-they are aiming for
a national championship by the
time they graduate. And'the way
things have looked so far, a double
entry may be necessary in the
record books in the not too dis-
tant future, denoting that Charles
and Phillip Fuller share that
coveted number one spot-together.
