Weatherly Rambles;
Leads in Series, 2-1

Elliott Seeks 'Toe' for Gridders

NEWPORT, R. I. P) - The
American defender Weatherly cut
through the gently rolling sea
like a blue steel rapier yesterday
and again ran away from Aus-
tralia's Gretel for a 2-1 lead in
the battle for the America's Cup,
the World Series of yachting.
The canny American skipper,
Emil (Bus) Mosbacher, took com-
mand in the first five minutes
and then proceeded to sail the
white-hulled challenger from down
under into the brine for a
thorough shellacking. The Wea-
therly crossed the finish line with
about a mile lead as the race
ended with seasalmost flat and
winds of six miles an hour.
Weatherly outfooted Gretel
going into the wind and walked
away from her downwind, finish-
ing the 24-mile course in 4 hours,
29 minutes, 56 seconds-a whop-
ping margin of 8 minutes, 40
seconds. Gretel's time was 4:21:16.
The Australians immnedately
exercised their prerogative and
raised the flag asking for a lay
day-the third day off in as many
races. This postpones until to-
morrow, the fourth in the best-
of-seven races
The brash challengers from the
bottom of the world actually may
have outsmarted themselves in

their insistence on these legal de-
laying tactics. The rule permits
either boat to ask for off day
after each race.
Most observers felt the Aussies
would have been wise to race Wed-
nesday while still riding the im-
petus of Tuesday's dramatic tri-
umph and while wind on the
Atlantic were whipping up wnite
caps with gusts up to 22 miles
an hour.
But the visitors chose to gamble
on even rougher conditions -
originally predicted yesterday -
and lost.
The third race started on calm
waters with winds of no more than
nine miles an hour and. turned
into a dull drifting match on the
spinnaker runs

SStar3M' Gridders
Get Nomination

The cold weather did not damp-
en the spirits of the Wolverines
yesterday as they went through a
brisk work-out, concentrating on
perfecting various stages of the
passing game.
After warm-up exercises, Mich-
igan head Coach Bump Elliott split
the team up into small groups,
each working on a different phase
of the aerial games-mostly prac-
ticing their screen and roll-out
Calling an end to these drills,

Michigan football players Joe
O'Donnell, Harvey Chapman, John
Marcum, and Dave Kurtz have
been nominated along with 16
others to the 1962 Big Ten Aca-
demic team.
The 20 athletes nominated for
the team will be considered in
the final selections at the end of
the season by a group of sports
writers. Besides the four nominat-
ed from Michigan, four were from
Northwestern; three from Wiscon-

Four Left in U.S. Amateur;

sin; two each from Ohio State,
Purdue, and Indiana; and one
each from Michigan State, Iowa,
and Illinois. No player from Min-
nesota was nominated.
All the players nominated to
the team have a B or better aca-
demic average. Most outstanding
player in the group is Pat Richter,
Wisconsin's All-America end, who
has maintained a B-plus average
O'Donnell and Marcum are
studying in the School of Edu-
cation. Kurtz is in the Engineer-
ing College and Chapman is en-
rolled in the School of Business
Other nominations are: Kent
Pike, Northwestern guard; Jerry

PINEHURST (P) - Billy Joe
Patton, the home-state hero, oust-
ed Georgia's Jimmy Gabrielsen, 7
and 6, and 20-year-old Labron
Harris Jr. upset Houston collegian
Homero Blancas, 2 and 1, Thurs-
day and swept into the semifinals
of the 62nd United States Ama-
teur golf championship.
Air Force lieutenant Charles
Coody of Fort Worth, Tex., reach-
ed the semifinals with a 2-up win
over Michigan's Bill Newcomb, a
Coody will meet Downing Gray,
24-year-old Pensacola (Fla.) in-
surance man, who bested Paul
DesJardins of Miami, 1-up.
Harris and Patton will play each
other in the opening 36-hole semi-
final match today.
Billy Joe, at 40, found himself
far and away the elder statesman
of the last eight survivors after
a morning fifth round. that saw
title threats Charlie Smith and
Dick Sikes shoved to the sidelines.
Paul Desjardnis, 20-year-old son
of former Olympic diving cham-
pion Pete DesJardins, scored a 3-
and-1 upset over Smith, Walker
Cup player from Gastonia.
Sikes, 22-yeah-old Arkansas stu-
dent who has won the National
public links championship the last
two years, fell victim to Harris,
1 up in 21 holes.
Patton rallied on the back nine
for a 2-and-1 fifth-round victory
over 19-year-old Johnny McKay,
a Duke sophomore while the 20-

year-old Gabrielsen routed 19-
year-old Bob Littler, Jr., of Ohio
U., 5 and 4.
In the other morning tests,
Blancas outlasted 18 - year - old
Dave Marad, the Massachusetts
schoolboy champion from Wollas-
ton, 1 up; and Downing Gray, a
1961 Florida State grad but a
weekend golfer now, spilled Jimmy
Colbert of Kansas State 3 and 2.
Coody, 25, disposed Bob Allen
of West Hartford, Conn., 3 and 2;
and Newcomb won the last two
holes with a birdie and a par for
a 2-up decision over Perky Cul-
linane of Bethesda, Md.

Elliott led them into a simulated
scrimmage, which lasted about an
hour and saw each of the four
teams getting a chance to play
against the others.
Conspicuous by his absence from
the scrimmage was Mel Anthony,
presently Michigan's starting full-
back. Anthony, who sprained his
ankle last Saturday, has been im-
proving slowly but Elliott does not
think that he is able to take the
strain of a full-contact scrimmage
Jim Green, Michigan's starting
center, who was out with a bruis-
ed hip, returned to action with
the first team.
Now that Elliott can leave his
worries about the physical condi-
tion of his players, he finds that
he still has another worry-"who
can replace Doug Bickle for kick-
offs, points-after-touchdowns, and
field goals?"
Seldom Missed Grade
Last fall Bickle kicked 20 PAT's,
while missing only three, for an
average of .874. To these 20 points
he added four field goals, for a
season total of 32 points.
Bickle was third high scorer on
the Michigan team, trailing only
- (is it necessary to mention
them,)-Dave Raimey, who carried
the pigskin across the goal line
eight times for a 48 point .total,
and since-departed Bennie' Mc-
Rae, with 36 points.
Looking over last season, the
importance of a strong and accur-
ate kicker becomes evident imme-
diately. Take the Purdue-Michi-
gan game as an example of the
need for a competent kicker. The
final score was 16-14 in Michigan's
favor, by virtue of a safety.
Suppose, however, that Bickle
had missed in his tries for the
point-after-touchdown. The score
would have been 14-14 (or worse,
considering the rarity of safeties).
The kicker plays a similar role
in every game of every season.
That's why it is so important for
Elliott to find a kicker who is
capabletof replacing Bickle.
Timberlake Equal
Right now, Bob Timberlake, the
highly-touted sophomore quarter-
back, from Franklin, Ohio, is the
equal of Bickle as far as kick-offs
go. Timberlake possesses the
strength to drive the ball into the
opposing team's end zone, thus
negating the chance for a run
back. Last year, Bickle, with the
aid of a strong wind, could put
the ball between the uprights on
the kick-off. But Timberlake does
not have the accuracy to do that,
He is steadily improving, how-
ever. His kicks are becoming more
and more accurate.
The field isn't wide open to
Timberlake either, for Elliott rates
juior fullback Bill Dodds as his
equal as far as accuracy goes.
But only in December will it be
known for sure if they are equals.

Wills Must Steal Three Bases

ST. LOUIS (P)-A disheartened,
tired and bruised Maury Wills said
yesterday, "as far as I'm concern-
ed I might as well forget trying to
break 'I'y Cobb's record for stolen
The Los Angeles Dodger made
the remark moments after he
learned baseball commissioner
Ford Frick had ruled Wills must
steal three bases in tonight's game
with St. Louis in order to break
Cobb's mark of 96 stolen bases.'
Frick said in New York that
Cobb's record "is based on a 154-


game schedule" and in order for
Wills to break the record he must
steal 97 bases in the first 154
games on the Dodgers schedule.
Wills, who has stolen 94 bases,
said Cobb set his record in 1915
when he played in 156 games. The
two extra games were played be-
cause two contests ended in ties
and had to be replayed.
"There's a possibility I might
be able to break Cobb's record to-
night. "I've stolen three bases in

one game many times. But that's
asking a lot," Wills said.
"If I've got to go out there to-
night knowing I've got to get
three, I don't think I can do it.
It could be done, but I doubt if I
can do it," he said.
"If I'can't break it, well--I see
no need in just tying it."
"All this time I've been under
the impression that it was 156'
games and I've thought about the
team first and tried to maintain
an average of one stolen base a
game toward the end. I could do
that without hurting the ball club.'
"I figured I had three games'
with the Cardinals for three stol-
en bases.
"Otherwise I could have taken
some chances in Milwaukee and
maybe could have gotten five or six'
stolen bases.
"I wish I'd known earlier,"
Wills said.
