Seven Coaches To Del

Don't Lead WCHA

e first and second place teams
st year's Western Collegiate
ey Association standings -
igan and Michigan Tech -
themselves at the opposite
of the ladder after the first
weekend of play.
st year Tech was first and
Wolverines were second. Now
Igan is in last place and the
ies are in second last, setting
stage for the weekend series

Disastrous Series
The Wolverines played a disas-
trous series in Minnesota, losing
6-4 on Friday and tieing 3-3 on
Saturday. The big blow to Michi-
gan's hopes came late in the first
game when goalie Bob Gray
strained his already weak left
knee making a save.
Gray now has his leg in trac-
tion and a decision will be made
Wednesday whether or not to
operate on the knee. Coach Al
Renfrew cites Gray's loss as a big
one but is fully confident that
Bill Bieber can ably fill his skates.
Gray's was the only injury and
the team will be in good shape
when they fly to Houghton for the
big series.
Colorado College, last year's
cellar-dwellers, leads the league
by virtue of an 8-7 overtime vic-
tory over Michigan State last
Saturday. Since the league stand-
ings are determined solely by per-
centage points, the Tigers are 1.000
as the Spartan game was their
first WCHA game.
The Spartans, who were the
league leaders going into the
weekend's action, dropped two.
They lost to Denver on FTriday,
6-2, before dropping'the Colorado
College game. The Spartans play-
ed Denver last night and meet the
Tigers again tonight before they
return home for two exhibition

games against the Duluth division
of Minnesota.
The Huskies from Houghton lost
one and tied one over the week-
end. On Friday the Tech men
dropped a 4-2 decision to North
Dakota and then held the Nodaks
to a 3-3 tie the next night.
North Dakota is 2-1-1 in the
WCHA, tied for second with Min-
nesota, who has an identical rec-
ord. The Sioux beat Michigan
State 11-4 in an earlier series.
Denver is fourth in the stand-
ings, with a 3-2 record followed by
Michigan State at 3-3..
Denver and Colorado College
play a home and home series this
weekend, while North Dakota
travels to Minnesota for an im-
portant two games.

Lund Given
'62 Coach of
Year Award
Former Michigan baseball coach
Don Lund has been named the
College Coach of the Year by the
American Association of College
The award was presented at the
baseball coaches' annual banquet.
,Lund guided the Wolverine
squad to the NCAA national cham-
pioinship last year after, being
edged out of the, Big Ten title on
the last day of the regular season.
His squad won the Big Ten
crown in 1961, however.
Formerly a right fielder and
scout for the Detroit Tigers, Lund
left his coaching post here to be-
come farm director for the Tigers.
A Detroiter by birth, Lund also,
coached for the Tigers from 1955-
57. He replaced Ray Fisher at the
Michigan helm and was himself,
replaced by Moby Benedict as the
Wolverine coach.

NEW YORK (W) - Seven col-
lege track coaches, headed by
George Eastment of Manhattan,
said Monday they would defy the
Eastern College Athletic Confer-
ence and send teams to AAU-sanc-
tioned meets during the indoor
The ECAC, in a letter mailed to
its 130-member schools last week,
"strongly urged" that they boy-
cott the indoor meets unless they
were sanctioned by the United
States Track and Field Federa-
tion. The USTFF, with the back-
ing of the NCAA, has been trying
to wrest sanctioning power from
the AAU. The ECAC, in turn, is
a member of the NCAA.
The indoor season gets under
way Saturday with the Boston
Knights of Columbus Games. The
meet has not sought USTFF sanc-
Joining Eastment, who also
serves as chairman of the Olym-
pic Track and Field Committee, in
the action, were Joe Healey of New
York University, John Gibson of
Seton Hall, Howie Bulgar of Iona,
Steve , Bartchold of St. John's,
Artie O'Connor of Fordham and
Dick Mason of Columbia. They
left one "if." If they are specifi-
cally instructed by their athletic
directors or presidents to boycott
the meets, they will follow orders.
The action came on the heels of

a statement last week by Jumbo
Jim Elliott, Villanova coach, who
said he had full intentions of com-
peting in the indoor meets.
However, in Los Angeles, at the
NCAA convention, Villanova Ath-
letic Director Arthur Mahan is-
sued this statement:
"The Villanova University track
team definitely will follow the pol-
icy of the ECAC and the NCAA
and will not participate in track
meets unless they are sanctioned
by the U. S. Track and Field Fed-
Chick Werner, executive direc-
tor of the federation, said, "Mr.
Mahan's statement confirms the
solid front of the nation's great
track teams presented against the
AAU and substantiates the recent
reaffirmation by the ECAC in sup-
porting the federation."
ECAC Commissioner Asa Bush-
nell, also at the NCAA meeting,
said, "I would be very surprised if
any of our members failed to sup-
port the action taken at our Dec.
14 annual convention, and our
Jan. 3 letters to all members that
followed the convention resolu-

olution was adopted and the vote

announced Monday it has sus-
pended five Australian runners
who attend the University of
Houston for competing in the
United( States Track , and Field
Federation's open cross-country
race in Columbus, Ohio, last Nov.
The five are Al Lawrence, Laurie
Elliott, Alan Irwin, Geoff Walker
and Greg Robinson.
Col. Don Hull, executive director
of the AAU, who made the an-
nouncement of the suspensions,
said the Australian AAU was in
full accord with the move.
He quoted a memorandum of
the Australian AAU which was
sent to all its affiliated bodies. The
memorandum pointed to a reso-
lution passed by the International
A m a t e u r Athletic Federation
which said that no member of the
IAAF was to compete in the Unit-
ed States except in meets sanc-
tioned by the AAU.
"The immediate effect of this
resolution," the Australian mem-
orandum said, "is that any athlete
who competes in meets in the
United States not approved by the
AAU will incur suspension and
will be barred from international
competition until such suspension
is lifted.
"In the case of foreign athletes
attending a university in the
NCAA group, and competing in
unsanctioned meetings under the
U. S. Track and Field Federation,
he will be unable to compete upon
return to his home country until
the suspension is lifted."

The Australian AAU is a char-
ter member of the IAAF.
"It is incomprehensible," Col.
Hull said, "that nations who sus-
pend their own athletes who vio-
lated the same IAAF resolution
would permit United States ath-
letes who violated the same reso-
lution to be certified as eligbile
for the Olympic Games. Any na-
tion could properly challenge
such United States athletes and
the world governing body for track
and field, of course, would uphold
this challenge.
"The AAU of the United States
will do everything in its power to
prevent the United States from
being discredited by such inter-
national challenge. Therefore, un-
der no circumstances will the AAU
certify as eligible for internation-
al competition those athletes com-
peting in open competition under
the auspices of the United States
Track and Field Federation.
"Probably the only foreign ath-
letes who may lose their eligibil-
ity are on NCAA scholarships and.
are forced to follow the NCAA di-
rectives or risk losing their schol-
