Charges AAU
AlItered Plan
Canham Leads Fight
Against Milder Forn
DETROIT MP)--The verbal war
for United States track and field
control flared anew last night with
the NCAA's coaches federation
charging a new coalition plan ap-
proved by the AAU reneged on
the original agreement.
The AAU's 35-man executive
board unanimously endorsed the
track. and field coalition earlier
yesterday and turned the plan
over to its board of governors for
expected approval tomorrow.
Retain International Control
The AAU plan emphasized that
it will retain all control of U.S.
participation in international com-
petition. This brought a strong re-
buttal from the U.S. Track and
Field Federation consisting of

"What the AAU presents has
only one feature of the original
agreement," said Don Canham,
Michigan track coach and execu-
tive vice-president of the Federa-
Two weeks ago the AAU and
NCAA agreed at New York on a
coalition plan designed to end 21/2
years of bickering and insure
strong U.S. representation in the
1964 Olympics in Tokyo.
Canham Denounces Plan
Canham said a conference tele-
phone call with other federation
officials last night agreed the
AAU-endorsed plan was unsatis-
factory. He said the call was made
among Bill Russell, Federation
president and a district director
of athletics in California; Chuck
Werner of Penn State, Federation
executive director and himself.
"We agreed the New York coali-
tion was based on five points,"
Canham said, "and anychanging
and eliminating now changes the
whole concept of the agreement.
"The New York agreement was
agreed upon again in Chicago only
Canham listed the five points in
the New York agreement as fol-
1) A, coalition agreement be-

tween the AAU and the Federa-
2) That a coalition would be
formed which would have equal
numbers-a new group in which it
would take a two-thirds majority
vote to control.
3) In '1964 the new coalition
would seek with the AAU's bless-
ing to have the International Ama-
teur Athletic Federation recognize
the new coalition as the governing
body of track and field in the U.S.
4) In turn, the Federation would
not claim jurisdiction over open
athletes. It would be educational
only, and all other athletes would
be under the AAU.
5) A coalition track meet would
be held for the purpose of deter-
mining national teams for interna-
tional meets.
The AAU's executive council an-
nouncement said all track busi-
ness of an international nature
would continue to be conducted by
the AAU.
Affiliated with IAAF
"We will stay as the governing
body because we are the only
American group affiliated with the
IAAF," said Louis J. Fisher, AAU
president from Hyde Point, N.C.
The IAAF is the world govern-
ing body for track and field.

'Best Material I've Had'

"We've got some scores to settle
this year," remarked Dave Strack
quietly and without a trace of bit-
terness yesterday.
When he. succeeded Bill Perigo
as Michigan basketball coach
three years ago, Strack inherited
the gruesome task of rebuilding a
team which had managed some-
how to lose 20 of 24 games the
season before.
"John Tidwell and the Seven
Dwarfs," as the team was known
in some quarters, had won their
lone Big Ten game only on a 41-
point performance by Tidwell
against Michigan State.
Under Strack, Michigan improv-
ed its conference record to 2-12 in
1960-1961 and 5-9 last year and
wound up with overall marks of
7-17 both years.
Men in White Jackets
After one game this year, an
80-64 exhibition win over the
freshmen Tuesday, Strack is hard-
ly ready to claim the Big Ten
championship for his team ("I'd
have to be crazy to say that," he
laughs), but he does thing this
year's edition will erase the door-
mat label from Michigan basket-
Three-time Big Ten champion
Ohio State has lost the nucleus of
its team, so the conference race
looks like dogfight to Strack.
"Everybody's cautiously optimis-
tic," he pointed out. "We are, too.
This is the best material I've had
since I've been here, but as to how
they'll do in 24 games-I'm not
that smart."
Strack isn't making any predic-
tions, but right now he rates the
top five Big Ten teams like this:
Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota,
Ohio State and Indiana.
Could Be Explosive
"But don't get the idea I'm try-
ing to sell this team short. On any
given night, we might be able to
blow a team off the court. In fact,
I'd be disappointed if we didn't.

"Our problem is going
get o consistently high
performance," he added.

level of

everything we got," commented
Strack. "Tom and John are going
to get their share this year, but
Bill isuthe one who really shakes
them up. When he goes up there
and wants that ball, he gets it."

Strack feels he has good depth
all along the line, but the key
man may be sophomore center Bill
Buntin, who contributed 21 points
and 17 rebounds against the fresh-
"He can be a fine player, but
he's awfully green," Strack point-
ed out. "He's potentially the best
Michigan center since John Town-
send, but of course he was before
our time. (1936-38)."
Up to Buntin
Buntin (6'7", 230 lbs.) has an
especially important responsibility
in each of Michigan's first games,
because Ball State, Creighton and
Butler all have big centers of their
ow nto throw up against him.
Michigan's first foe of the reg-
ular season, Ball State (here, 2
p.m. tomorrow), will match Bun-
tin with 6'6", 205-lb. Ed Butler, a
junior who averaged' 14.8 points
and 17.4 rebounds last year.
It will be up to Buntin to do as
good a job on the boards against
Butler as John Harris did last
year, holding him to eight re-
Buntin faces two of the best re-
bounders in the country Monday
night in Creighton's Paul Silas and
next Saturday in Butler's Jeff
Silas Another Lucas
Silas, a 6'7", 235-lb. junior, was
barely edged for last year's na-
tional leadership in rebound per-
centage by OSU's Jerry Lucas, but
he did outscore Lucas, 22 points
a game to 21.8.
Blue is a stocky 6'6" and in
clearing 23 rebounds against Mich-
igan last year was one of the most
physically punishing players the
team met.
This year, Buntin is flanked by
the two best rebounders Michigan
had last year, 6'7" Tom Cole and
6'5'? Harris, both forwards.

most sweeping reorganization of
the minors in baseball history.

pressure from the majors.
Under the terms of a far reach-

The gymnasts have been working
out since September, and prepared
for this meet by holding three
intra - squad competitions. The
team views this meet as a warmup
for their campaign to regain the
Big Ten crown, and as a chance to
see what the competition will be
Michigan is counting highly on
sophomore John Anderson. Ander-
son's specialty is free exercise and
tumbling. Observers close to the
squad expect Anderson to place in
both events.
Leading the Wolverines point-
scoring efforts in the meet will be
Captain Gil LaRose, Arno Lascari
and Jimmy Hynds. All three are
seniors and lettermen and are
expected to provide the bulk of the
Michigan scoring.
Fred Sanders will be competing
in rebound tumbling for the Wol-
verines. Michigan will be weakened
in this event this year, because of
the graduation of last year's cap-
tain, Tom Osterland, and an un-
fortunate head injury to Lew Hy-
Michigan's all-round men are
expected to score high in their
specialties, too: Larose on the still
rings, Lascari on the parallel bar
and Hines on the high bar. In
tumbling and free exercise, Barry
Speiser will be competing along
with Anderson.
The meet is a big one with up to
60 entrants in each event. It will
be necessary to run two events
simultaneously, and even then the
meet will take this evening and
Saturday afternoon and evening
to be completed.

To Coalition
Anticipate Stronger
U.S. Team as Result
DETROIT (R)-A peaceful set-
tlement to the long verbal war
over the control of track and field
came closer to reality yesterday
when the AAU's top governing
body endorsed a coalition plan
with the NCAA.
The AAU's 35-man executive
board unanimously approved the
coalition and submitted the plan
to its Board of Governors. Auto-
matic approval is expected by the
governors tomorrow when the
AAU's 75th national convention
begins its general sessions.
,However, the AAU emphasized
it will remain in control of Unit-

ed States' participation in inter-
national competition.
"All business of an international
nature will continue to be con-
ductedb ythe AAU," the executive
committee announced.
AAU approval of the coalition
virtually insures the U.S. of a
strong team for the 1964 Olympic
Games at Tokyo. There had been
fears the squabbling whichthreat-
ened to create a rash of conflict-
ing meets sponsored by the triv-
ial groups would weaken the
American team.
The AAU said the coalition would
remain in effect at least through

The Federation's chief aim had

The coalition was hailed by the
AAU as a harmonious solution to
the 2%V2-year-conflict with the
"This coalition should elimin-
ate all objections," said Col. Don-
ald F. Hull of New York, executive
director of the AAU.
The AAU said there would be a
coalition committee on which var-
ious interested groups would have
weighted representation in justly
weighted numbers. These groups
would include the NCAA, AAU,
the small - college NAIA, high
schools and the armed forces.
"Various championships, such as
AAU, NCAA and others would con-
tinue to be autonomous," said the
AAU's announcement.
It said the AAU would continue
to conduct its present national
open championships.
