4 ..xww '. Illinois hosts Big Ten

The Big Ten Track Meet opens today in
Champaign, Illinois with host Illinois ranking as
one of the challengers for the crown. Michigan
State, boasting one of the swiftest teams in the
country is looking for an unprecedented three
championships in track events (cross-country
and the indoor championship being the other
two) in one year.
The Illini are strong in the middle distance
events and most of the track portion and should
give the home town throng something to cheer
about. They are especially strong in the 660 and
880 with Ron Phillips being the standout in this
No track enthusiast can be unaware of the
immense amount of speed that the Spartans
possesses with Herb Washington in the 100 yard
dash and Marshall Dill in the 220. Washington
seems assured of bettering the Big Ten Cham-
pionship Mark of 9.4 that Jesse Owens set at
Ferry Field in 1935.
Washington will be hard pressed to even gar-
ner the championship as Purdue's Larry Burton
has tied Washington's 9.2 best and defeated him
in a dual meet.
The shot put record owned by Michigan as-
sistant mentor Jack Harvey is quite within the
reach of Colin Anderson of Minnesota who has
tossed the ball over 60 feet every time out this
year. Steve Adams of Michigan should provide

neck and neck competition for Anderson in the
shot and should take the discus.
The relay races, where the team champion-
ships are won, are a clean toss-up with the in-
dividual times of the leading Michigan State,
Michigan and Indiana squads in the 440. and the
mile quite bunched together.
The Wolverine chances for a decent finish are
quite good. As track coach Dixon Farmer has
pointed out the Wolverines possess class per-
formers in Godfrey Murray (hurdles), Steve Ad-
ams (shot and discus), and Kim Rowe (440), as
well as in the relay squads. With some good sec-
ondary performances as the Wolverines put on
against Purdue, a respectable finish, such as last
year's fifth, is quite possible.
Murray stands in good stead in his attempt to
top Gene Washington's 120 high hurdles re-
cords. Michigan's Mel Reeves, who has run a 13.8
to Murray's 13.6, could well garner the second
Adams will be facing a stern test in the discus.
Although he has outpolled Larry Dykstra of Illi-
nois by more than eight feet, he has been de-
throned by Dykstra at a dual meet and the Illini
thrower is on his home turf. If Adams can con-
tinue his season form, he could come back to
Ann Arbor with a Big Ten record. He has con-
tinually thrown over the 178' 111" that is the
Big Ten standard.

g Ten ma jumpers work out in hnampalgn, Iunois, in pre-
paration for the Big Ten meet to commence today.

Gibson garners first; igers lose, 2-0

Bucs' streak ended i
By The Associated Press
ST. LOUIS - Bob Gibson
won his first game of the sea-
son after five losses and Ted
Sizemore his his first home run
of the year as the St. Louis
Cardinals snapped Pittsburgh's
nine-game winning streak with
a 4-2 triumph Thursday.
Gibson, off to the worst start
of his career, scattered seven
Pittsburgh hits, including a
bases - empty home run by
Richie Hebner in the sixth inn-
Lou Brock singled leading off
the first and third innings, stole
second each time and scored in
both innings to give St. Louis a
2-1 lead. Matty Alou brought
home Brock in the first with a
single and the Cardinal left
fielder came in on Joe Torre's
double play bouncer in the third.
Sizemore's home run off
Pittsburgh starter Dock Ellis,
5-2, gave St. Louis a 3-1 lead in
the fifth inning.
Pittsburgh shortstop Gene
Alley booted a two-out ground-
er in the seventh, and the Cards
seized the opportunity to score
on .Dal Maxvill's single into right
Willie Mays delivered his
third game winning hit since
becoming a New York Met two
weeks ago, slugging a run-scor-
ing single in the 14th inning to
carry his team to a 3-2 victory
over the Chicago Cubs Thurs- ci
day. e
The 41-year-,old superstar. N
acquired from the San Fran- B
cisco Giants on May 11, ended M
the marathon affair with the
Cubs by driving home Wayne
Garrett from second base with M
two out. Te
Garrett had singled moved up C
to second after pinch-hitter Jim
Beauchamp walked, setting the cl
'tage for Mays' dramatic hit. r
He also won two other games Ka
for New York in the last two
weeks on late-inning home runs. D
The Mets, shut out for the ch
first seven innings, came back Mi
to tie the game 2-2 with a run D
in each of the eighth and ninth Te
frames. Ka
Duffy Dyer's home run in the
New York eighth cut Chicago's
margin to 2-1 and the Mets
scored the tying run on a double
by Rusty Staub and singe. by !
Cleon Jones in the ninth.
The late rallies wiped out a
Chicago lead built on Carmen
Fanzone's two-run double in
the sixth. Jose Cardenal start-
ed the inning when he singled
and stole second. Glenn Beckert
drew a walk and after Billy
Williams flied. out for the sec-
ond out, Fanzone doubled to
right-center off Jon Matlack.

Brawl mars gaiie,
Lolich akes loss
From wire Service Reports
Billy Martin went to the well
yesterday and found it was dry.
Five Tiger hurlers were unsuc-
cessful in stopping the fearsome
Milwaukee Brewers and Tigers
bats couldn't even manage a
growl as the Tigers were blanked
by 'the Brewers, 2-0.
Mickey Lolich, who the Tigers
count .on as a stopper, was in-
effective while Brewer hurler
Skip Lockwood scattered six
hits. Ellie Rodriguez found Lo-
lich in the fourth and greeted
the Tiger fatboy with a two-run
homer in the fourth.
NBA Wins
John Havelicek hit a last see-
and basket to give the NBA a
125-120 point victory. Bob La-
vier also helped as the older
league rallied from a 19 point
Lolich, who had been streak-
ing of late, suffered his second
loss against eight victories.
The Tiger hurlers, wild from
start to finish, gave ten free
passes to Brewer batters, mak-
ing a total of 18 in the last two
The game was punctuated by
a full-fledged brawl. The Tigers,
feeling the frustration of the
pennant race, emptied their
bench to come to the aid of
pitcher Phil Meeler. Meeler ran
into the fist of outfielder Billy
Conigliaro on a close play at
first base.
- Even though the Tigers lost,
their magic number was re-
duced. The Indians ran into bad
luck and Fritz Peterson in New
% York and dropped their ball
game by an identical score of
2-0 score.

As in the Tiger game a two-
run homer was the difference.
Roy White connected for the
Yankees and Fritz Peterson hurl-
ed seven-hit ball.
Magic Number: 128
With Micky Lolich backed
against the wall, panic broke
out on Woodward Avenue. But
then the word from the Bi
xiety as usual.
The Indians continued their
frustrating non-hitting ways and
have managed only eight runs
in the last five games. How-
ever the Indian pitching was
again its exemplary self, limit-
ing the Yanks to only five hits.
Dick Tidrow, whose loss evened
his record at 4-4, pitched quite
commendably. S t e v e Mingori,
who came on in the eighth, was
also beginning to show last
year's form.
The Orioles continued their
floundering ways with a 2-1 loss
to Marty Pattin and Boston.
Pattin was aided by the year's
first triple play.
