Track trials has fireworks

By The Associated Press
A pair of upstarts produced fireworks,
some old veterans performed as expect-
ed yesterday, and for the first time in
three days of the U. S. Olympic Arack
and Field Trials in Eugene, Oregon, the
winners, not the losers, drew attention.
Edwin Moses, a 20-year-old junior at
Morehouse College in Atlanta, shattered
the American record of 48.5 seconds in
the 400-meter intermediate hurdles with
a 48.30 mark,
Rookie Brenda Moorehead rocketed
to a near-record performance in the
100.
Miss Morehead, 19, a freshman at Ten-
nessee State, burst from the starting
block and sped to the finish line in 11.08
seconds; a shade off the world record
of 11.04.

And veteran Rick Wohlhuter gained
another Olympic trip with an expected
800 victory.
In exciting competition Dave Roberts
regained his pole vault record from Earl
Bell with a leap of 18 feet, 81/2 inches as
the two highest vaulters in history
earned berths on the U. S. Olympic
team.
This is perhaps the strongest vault-
ing contingent the United States will
send to an Olympics since 1960 when
Don Bragg and Ron Morris placed 1-2
at Rome.
Meanwhile, Harvey Glance, winner of
the 100-meter dash Sunday, failed in a
bid to become the first man since Ray
Norton in 1960 to make the U. S. team
in both short sprints.
The small but muscular Auburn Uni-
versity freshman finished fifth in his 200-

meter heat in 20.94 seconds.
In the women's pentathalon, Jane
Frederick of the Los Angeles Track
Ciub, the American record holder,
lengthened her lead in the women's pen-
tathlon by winning the long jump in 20
feet, 10 inches, sixth best on the U. S.
list, at the Olympic track and field
trials.
Not all the events here concerned
times or points. Dr. Leroy Walker, a
former track coach, is pushing his
idea of selecting the Olympic squad
two years in advance.
Walker long has advocated selecting
the U.S. team well in advance, but the
slbject heated up again last Saturday
when sprinter Steve Williams, one of
the world's fastest men, was injured and
failed to maake the American team.
"Under my plan," said Walker, "if

you have an injured athlete, you would
do with him what any good coach would
do - you'd rest him to make him whole.
We would not have had to chance this
situation with Williams being forced to
run in the trials."
In swimming, at Long Beach,
California's Shirley Babashoff could
well become the star of the 1976 Olym-
pic games at Montreal in leading the
U.S. women swimmers, but the men
should do better over-all.
Babshoff set American records in four
events, qualified for five individual races
and could compete in seven at Mon-
treal. Her capping victory came with a
world record in the 800-meter freestyle.
Coach Jim Councilman, the veterans
from Indiana, believes his men could
win one-half of the medals at the Olym-
pics in Montreal,

W olverines vs. Warriors
in '76-'77 cage schedule
ty The Associated Press
HOLLYWOOD, Fla. - The University of Michigan and
Marquette University have agreed to play each other in the
1976-77 basketball season.
THE GAME WAS added onto the schedule of each team,
and will be telecast as part of NBC's and TVS's new Sunday
afternoon basketball package.
It was announced that NBC and TVS have paid $3 million
for the package, which includes weekly regional games along
with the Sunday telecasts.
Sources at the National Association of Collegiate Directors
of Athletics convention here said the series will begin with a
nationally televised doubleheader Jan. 2 featuring UCLA
against Btssston.
THE SERIES will include defending national champion
Indiana against runnerup Michigan, Marquette-Michigan,
Notre Dame-Marquette and North Carolina State-Louisville.
Spokesmen said a Tennessee-UCLA game was shifted
from December to Jan. 30 for inclusion in the Sunday series.
The site was moved from New Orleans to Atlanta, with
Tennessee's Jan. 29 game with George moved to Feb. 1 to
avoid successive game dates.

1974 Wimbledon champ Chris Evert in action yesterday in her
first-round match of the Wimbledon Tennis Championships.
Miss Evert, 21, breezed past T. J. Thompson of the U.S. 6-1,

manded more money in the tournament.

WIMBLEDON, England - Chris Evert and
Evonne Goolagong, top seeds in the women's sin-
gles, each won their opening matches in less than
an hour yesterday as the second day of the
Wimbledon tennis championship began in hot
sunshine.
Miss Evert, the 1974 chamipon from Fort Lau-
derdale, Fla., had an easy 6-1, 6-1 victory over
Linda Rupert Thomas of Orlando, Fla.
Miss Goolagong, winner of the title in 1971, had
a little more difficulty beating Elly Vessies-Appel
of the Netherlands 6-2, 7-5.
MEANWHILE, in the men's singles of the
$280,000 tournament, all 16 of the men's seeds
were safely through the first round and those
who played second round matches also were
winners.
Top-seeded Arthur Ashe, 32, from Miami, Fla.,
struggled against Australian Allan Stone in his

second-round clash, before winning 7-5, 8-9, 9-7,
7-5.
Meanwhile, Jimmy Connors, Bjorn Borg and
Ilie Nastase, the other top seeds, raced to easy
victories in their quest to win the title.
STAN SMITH of Sea Pines, S.C., the 1972 Wim-
bledon champion, overpowered Patricio Cornejo
of Chile 6-1, 6-2, 6-4.
There was action off the court as well. Several
international women tennis stars. have given an
ultimatum to Wimbledon tennis officials-Pay us
the same prize money as the men or we won't
come to next year's championships.
Miss Evert said in a statement last night, "The
time has come when we must press for equality."
IT IS THE second boycott threat faced by the
All England Tennis Club from women players in
the past 18 months.
