ROTONDA WEST, Fla. (R) -
Race d r i v e r Peter Revson
stroked to tennis and swimming
victories yesterday in the unique
Superstars snorts competition as
boxer Joe Frazier suffered an-
other quick knockout.
"My main intention is to prove
that fellows in auto racing have
to be good athletes, too," said
Revson, a 33-year-old graduate of
Cornell.
The handsome bachelor out-
gunned sleepy-eyed hockey star
Rod Gilbert 6-1 in the tennis fi-
nals and overtook pole vault rec-
ord-holder Bob Seagren with a
stretch drive to win the 100-meter
swimming showdown.
Ten noted athletes are partici-
pating in a two-day sports fes-
tival at this real estate develop-
ment on Florida's lower west
coast. They are barred from en-
tering events for which they are
famous.
Revson earned $6,000 for his
two triumphs.
Pro bowler Jim Stefanich of
Joliet, Ill., edged baseball slug-
ger Johnny Bench by one stroke
with a 41 in the nine-hole golf
event for a $3,000 check.
Each man participates in seven
events of his choosing. The win-
ner of each gets $3,000 with
$2,100 for second, $1,200 for third,
$600 for fourth and $300 for fifth.
The overall point leader for
two days in the $122,000 compe-
tition picks up another $25,000.
The top five finishers in each
event are awarded points on a
10-7-4-2-1 basis.
Revson was clocked in ,1:18.2
for 100 meters, followed by Sea-

gren in 1:19.4, skier Jean-Claude
Killy in 1:27.4 and tennis ace
Rod Laver in 2:04.5. Gilbert was
fifth after being disqualified for
touching the pool's bottom.
Frazier, who' lost his world
heavyweight championship 1 a s t
month in a second-round knock-
out, didn't last as long in the pool
as he did in the ring against
George Foreman.
Smokin' Joe hit the pool like
an enraged whale, but was 10
meters behind after the first 20
meters of the race. He stopped
all together halfway through the
50-meter heat, throwing up his
hands and saying: "I quit!
"I know I was in trouble when
I put my trunks on," Frazier
said. "I just wasn't made for
water. I almost drowned out
there."
Others entered in Superstars
are pro football quarterback
Johnny Unitas and 6-foot-9 bas-
ketball star Elvin Hayes.
Today's five scheduled events
are baseball hitting, table ten-
nis, the 100-yard dash, the half-
mile run and a one-mile bicycle
race. Bench outfumbled Stefan-
ich on the final hole of the golf
event. The bowler drove out of
bounds to wipe out his two-stroke
edge, but the National League's
Most Valuable P l a y e r then
shanked his second shot out of
bounds to give it back.
Bench was leading his heat in
the swimming competition, but
suddenly tired and was disquali-
fied when he walked the final
few meters in the shallow end to
finish second.

For seniors, Ray Gura, Ward
Black and Terry Boys, it was a
nice way to say goodby. In. last
night's final home dual meet, the
Michigan gymnasts demolished
the Michigan S t a t e Spartans,
161.50 to 154.40.
Michigan held a strong lead all
the way in a cool, calm, relaxed
meet. The opening two perform-
ances in foor exercise set a pat-
tern of judges conferences, seven

interesting event if only for its un-
fortunate performances. Michigan
State's Dave Rosengren and Ber-
nie Van Wie both fell on to the
horse, ending up with a 6.25 and a
5.2 respectively.
Spartan Balhorn, who had a sur-
prisingly bad night, fell complete-
ly off the horse, but pulled a 7.2
score, nevertheless. The side horse
hurt MSU; only one man, Don
Waybright, got over the 8.0 mark,
and the final tally of 23.0 put Spar-
tan hopes deeply in doubt. Way-

slick 8.65 routine.
Despite the lack of judges' con-
ferences, Michigan State stilla

mount, but couldn't rescue his

8.65, and Michigan rung up the
score to 107.65 to 102.60.
KEN FACTOR was a bright
spot for State, as he took a 8.9
for his performance. Balhorn dis-
played some of the talent every-
one knew he had as he performed
to an 8.6 finale. A low Van Wie
7.05 was the only thing the Spar-
tans could come up with for the
three counting scores.
