At Wichita
WICHITA, Kan. OP)--Wichita
University received a stiff penalty
from the Missouri Valley Confer-
ence yesterday for paying unau-
thorized expenses in recruiting a
basketball player.
Valley Commissioner Norvall
Neve slapped a $1,000 fine and a
conditional two-year ban on post-
season competition on the univer-
sity for the infraction.
The post-season prohibition is
against "competition other than
NCAA sponsored and sanctioned
Bob Donaldson, co-ordinator of
athletics at the university, said
the university paid expenses for a
New York city man who accom-
panied a player to the campus
here in 1962.
The conference rule on this
states that "no member institu-
tion may finance transportation
costs incurred by relatives or
friends of a prospective student
athlete to visit the campus or else-
Davis and Stegman visited the
campus here in April, 1962, and
Davis enrolled as a student here
in the fall term of 1962.
"The university paid expenses
for both of them," said Donald-
son. "We were clearly in viola-
tion of the letter of this particular
"The boy (Davis) is blameless,"
he added. "No one holds him re-I
sponsible. He's a fine young man."

ChandlerSprains Ankle in Scrimmage

Associate sports Editor
When Bob Chandler hobbled
onto Ferry Field yesterday after-
noon, it wasn't exactly an un-
familiar sight.
But this time, Wolverine grid
fans will be relieved to know, the
senior quarterback's injury isn't
at all serious. He sprained his left
ankle in a pileup after running an
option play during a scrimmage
on Wednesday and will miss ac-
tion for about a week.
"At first it was thought that
the ankle was broken," said the
amiable signal-caller at practice
yesterday. "But Dr. Coxon (A. W.
Ccxon, the tpam's physician) said
that what the X-rays revealed
was an old break, and this was
just a sprain."
Major Injury
Chandler suffered a major in-
jury in the 1960 Michigan State
game when his right knee was
very badly shattered. As a result.
he was out the rest of that sea-
son, and was granted another year
of eligibility by the Big Ten. He
saw only limited action in 1961,
but last year he came up with a
few flashes of brillance in the
otherwise dismal Wolverine sca-
Chandler has always been re-
garded as a passing quarterback,
and has been praised especially
for his ability to throw the long
bomb. His leg injuries have cur-
tailed his running game consid-
erably, and head coach Bump
Elliott's heart must have skipped
a beat when he saw the 6'3"
flinger get up slowly on Wednes-

working on a plant job this sum-
lmer. "I was down to 190 at prac-
tice last year," he said, "but I
generally gain weight during the
season until I reach about 210."
Happy About Henderson
Resting a little uneasily on his
crutches at practice yesterday,
Chandler watched junior end John
Henderson gather in a few tosses
off the hand of fellow quarter-
back Frosty Evashevski. And he
had nothing but praise for Hen-
"Nine out of 10 times you can
count on Henderson to be out in
the open, three steps ahead of his
man," he remarked. "He makes
his cut so fast that it takes the
defender a few seconds to figure
out where he is."
Needless to say, if both Chan-
dler and Henderson play up to
their potential, Michigan could
have an aerial combination that's
been sorely needed for a long

In other aspects of the injury
department, there were just a few
minor mishaps in the last couple
of days of practice.
Guard John Marcum suffered
what was first thought to be a
shoulder separation Wednesday,
but it turned out to be just a bad
bruise, and he should be back in
a week or so.
End Jim Conley seems to have
recovered from a wrist operation
last spring, but a bad knee which
he also acquired at that time is
still a little gimpy.

having missed a coupleuof days

LOS ANGELES (?)-That man,
-southpaw pitcher Bo Belinsky-
is coming back to the Los Angeles
Don't panic, girls, Bo won't be1
here until after Hawaii, his pres-
ent club, finishes its season Sept.1
Angel General Manager Fred
Haney announced yesterday that1
12 players were being recalled froma
the club's farm teams. Six won't
check in until next spring.1
Belinsky's name did lead the1
list-down in the third paragraph
of the release.
Bachelor Bo was sent down the
river, or rather across the Pacific,
early in the season. This was done,
among other reasons, because
nightclubbing Bo had a 1-7 record
and a drastic 6.39 earned run
Belinsky held off for weeks be-
fore agreeing to report to Hawaii
in the Pacific Coast League, a pol-
icy which did not endear him to
Finally the "new" Belinsky, who
hurled a no-hitter for Los Angeles
last year, got going.
Last Monday in Honolulu he
won his third game without a loss,'
a four-hitter against league-lead-
ing Spokane.
A record crowd of 16,954 turned
out, highest in the league this year.
In four starts in Honolulu, Bo at-
tracted 42,296 fans.
"I'm out of the doghouse now,"
declared Belinsky, tossing his cap
and then a dog collar, to the crowd.
It seems he'd been wearing the
dog collar on his ankle-his left
ankle, of course.
Others recalled were Mel Nelson,
Tom Satriano, Ed Kirkpatrick,

Charlie Dees and Bob Perry, all
of whom were with the parent club
earlier. The remaining six won't
report until spring training.

ALTANTA W)-A federal judge
held up payment of a $3.06 mil-
lion libel judgment to former
Georgia Football Coach Wally
Butts yesterday until action is
taken on motions by Curtis Pub-

favorable judgment.

Morgan also granted Curtis 15
days after the official record is

PIT'TSBURGH -) - The New
York Daily News, in a story by
baseball 'writer Dick Young in
Pittsburgh, says a split has devel-
oped between Casey Stengel and
General Manager George Weiss to
the extent that, Stengel may not
return as manager of the New
York Mets next season.
"Stengel wants to return. Weiss
wants him to return. But Stengel
will operate only under his terms
--which include who shall and
shall not be on the team," Young
wrote, and quoted Stengel:
"They want me to bring back
a bunch of those failures and play
them again. How can I win with
them? Some of them got two
chances here, and they couldn't
do it. What makes him think they
can do it now?"
According to Young, Stengel re-
ferred to several old Mets who
have been shipped to Buffalo, the
Mets' International League farm
club, and said:
"Let them get me eight or nine
new players. Maybe I can win with
them. I know I can't win with the
ones that have been up and down."
Young says the split developed
at a recent meeting over the stand-
ard baseball procedure to restore
farmhands to the Mets' roster
prior to the trading period, in or-
der to give them a big league iden-
tity and presumably to increase
their value on the winter market.
According to Young, Weiss wants
to follow this procedure but Sten-
gel is in strong opposition- and is
demanding further unloading of
players currently on the roster.
"I went through hell building a
pitching staff here," Young quot-
ed Stengel.


Genuine LEVI'S Galore
for Men, Women and Children-All Colors
SAM_ 122E. Washington

The Michigan Soccer Club,
after an attempt to persuade the
Varsity Athletic Department to
grant the club varsity status, is
once again organizing for its fall
The club will play in the In-
ternational Center's league again
this year with competition against
Indian, Afro-Arab, Chinese, Eu-
ropean, Latin 'American, Turkish,
and Greek teams. The club has
had a mediocre record in this past
competition, due mostly to the
high caliber of the foreign play-
ers in the league.
The team is composed of under-
graduate male students who would
be eligible to play under Big Ten
rules, in hopes that the Varsity
Board might grant it varsity status
so that an intercollegiate schedule
might be arranged.
The team will begin its practice

sessions this Sunday at 2:00 at
Wine Field. All persons interested
are welcome .to attend this ses-
sion, which is mainly for the ben-
efit of the new players.
The club is especially interested
in scheduling a match with Mich-
igan State's nationally ranked
varsity team. Four other Big Ten
schools have active soccer clubs
with which a Michigan club might
be able to arrange a schedule.The
big hope is that a Big Ten con-
ference might eventually take
over the reigns of a soccer league.
Several attempts at creating a
team to play varsity soccer have
railed in the past, but the club
presently active feels that they
are ready to play varsity com-
petition. However, when several
schools were contacted last year
about the possibility of schedul-
ing contests, the club was turned
down because they lacked varsity
A movement is in the planning
stages for ithis fall to again peti-
tion the Board in Control of In-
tercollegiate Athletics for cecog-
nition, on a larger and more pub-
licized scale.
