Vig Eight Cuts

Ties with AAUI

M' Pool Renamed
For Matt Mann


By The Associated Press
LINCOLN, Neb.-The Big Eight
Conference is severing relations
with the Amateur Athletic Union
(AAU) to support the new sports
federations inkthe United States
which are backed by the National
Collegiate Athletic ~ Association
(NCAA), the Lincoln Star report-
ed yesterday in a copyrighted ar-
Reaves Peters of Kansas City,
Mo., executive director of the Big
Eight, confirmed that conference
faculty directors at their last
meeting voted to support the new-
ly-formed federations in the fight
with the AAU over control of ama-
teur athletics in the United States,
the Star story said.
Ordered Schools
The Big Eight officials ordered
conference schools and coaches to
sever all relations with the AAU.
The action amounted to official
support for the Basketball Federa-
tion of the United State.s, the
United States Track and Field
Federation and the United States
Gymnastics Federation.
"The conference, in effect,"
Peters said, "reaffirmed the stand
taken last January when the

NCAA voted to support the feder-
ation plan. The NCAA requested
the action and the Big Eight voted
to support the federations, rather
than the AAU." ff1
Can't Enter
As a result of the vote, no Big
Eight conference athlete can enter
any AAU or AAU-sanctioned com-
petition in basketball, track and
field, or gymnastics, Peters said.
In addition, all coaches and ad-
ministrators must resign their
NBA Tean
PHILADELPHIA (?)-Philadel-
phia will be back in the National
Basketball Association for the
1963-64 season, a reliable source
disclosed yesterday.
The source said Eddie Gottlieb,
who sold and transferred the Phil-
adelphia Warriors of the NBA to
San Francisco for a reported $750,-
000, will own the new Philadelphia
The team will not be a new
franchise, the source said, but one
of the present NBA teams. Gott-
lieb, presently general manager of
the San Francisco team, is at-
tempting to keep NBA interest
alive this season by promoting a
half dozen league doubleheaders

AAU memberships, AAU commit-
tee jobs or AAU offices in any
sport, not just the three affected
by the federations, Peters added.
In Chicago
Meanwhile in Chicago, the Ama-
teur Athletic Union of the United
States officially issued what it
said was a final warning yesterday
to this country's athletes that they
will be ruled ineligible for inter-
national competition if they com-
pete in federation open meets.
It was taken as the AAU's big-
gest broadside against the Federa-
tion movement support for the
National Collegiate Athletic As-
sociation and encompassing 555
colleges and universities, 300 jun-
ior colleges, 50 members of the na-
tion track and field association
(track clubs) and 17,000 high
schools in every state but Texas,
which is not a member of the Na-
tional Federation of High School
Stalemate Continues
The action firmly continues a
stalemate between the two fac-
tions and imperils the makeup of
U. S. teams for the Pan-American
Games in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Ap-
ril 20-May 5, 1963, and the 1964
Olympics in Tokyo.
This especially is true in track
and field, the strongest of the
federation groups which have been
organized over the last two years.
Others are operative in basketball
and gymnastics at the present
The first major showdown will
come in the federation's national
cross-country meet at Ohio State
Thanksgiving D a y. Currently

scheduled the same date is the
national AAU harrier meet in
The AAU says that any athlete
competing in the federation meet
automatically will make himself
ineligible for international compe-
Giving the AAU supreme au-
thorities in certifying athletes for
international competition was ac-
tion taken in Belgrade a month
ago by the International Amateur
Athletic Federation. It barred ath-
letes of all its members from par-
ticipating in an American track
meet not authorized or sanctioned
by the AAU.
Walter Byers, executive director
of the NCAA, said his group will
sanction AAU meets. Louis Fisher
of High Point, N.C., president of
the AAU, and AAU Executive Di-
rector Col. Donald F. Hull of New-
York said the AAU will not sanc-
tion "open" federation meets.
Hawks Beat
NEW YORK (IP) The Chicago
Black Hawks came from behind
last night to record their first Na-
tional Hockey League victory of
the season, defeating the New
York Rangers, 5-1.
The five goals equaled the Black
Hawks' output in three previous
games this season.
Ron Murphy and Eric Nesteren-
ko were the chief tormentors of
the disorganized Rangers, each
collecting one goal and tw6 as-

When Matt Mann II died last
August, his name already was im-
mortal to everybody connectedI
with swimming.K
Yesterday the Board of Regents
made it official and renamed Var-,
sity Pool after the former Mich-t
igan coach in honor of the 28I
years he spent developing top
teams here?
Built in '59
Built in 1959, Matt Mann Pool
seats about 3500 people.
Mann, who was 77 when he suf-
fered a fatal heart attack Aug. 4,
was one of the best-known and
best-liked men in the sport.
At Mann's death, Michigan Ath-
letic DirectordH.Oh . Fritz)Crisler
commented, "He was the greatest
coach in the world, but he was
even greater as a developer of
16 Titles
From 1925 to 1953 Mann coach-
ed Michigan teams to 16 Big Ten
titles and 13 NCAA champion-
ships. After 1926 his teams never
finished lower than second in the
Coach of the 1952 Olympic
Swimming Team, Mann moved to
Oklahoma after compulsory re-
tirement from Michigan in 1953.
His Sooner teams won eight
straight Big Eight titles and pro-
duced swimmers like freestyler
Jeff Farrell, sentimental favorite
of the 1960 Olympics after re-.;
covery from an appendectomy.
Among the stars Mann produced

at Michigan was distance free-
styler Gus Stager, who succeeded
hin as head coach in 1953.
Born in Leeds, England, in 1884,
Mann began coaching in 1906 at
Syracuse. Before moving to Mich-
igan he also coached at Harvard,
Yale, the New York Athletic Club,
the Duluth Boat Club and the
Detroit Athletic Club.
