lor, the phenomenal sophomore
from Ohio State, continued on his
}merry record-busting way last
night as he swept first place in the
1500-meter freestyle race to open
up the 1950 NCAA swimming
championships being held here in
the Buckeye natatorium.
IN WINNING the race in the
blazing time of 18:38.1, Taylor
broke every existing American
record for that event; including
the NCAA, Big Ten, intercollegiate,
pool and varsity record.
Earlier this month Taylor es-
tablished a new Big Ten record
for the same event in the time
of 18:58.1 and last night bettered
his own mark by almost twenty
seconds. His victory placed the
Buckeyes at the head of the

Top Conference Gymnasts
Seek Repeat Performances

CCNY Halts
Ohio, 56-55

Seven of the eleven place win-,
ners in last year's championships
will be back tomorrow as the
twentieth Western Conference
gymnastics meet gets under way
at Iowa City.
They include two each from
Michigan, Minnesota and Illinois
and one from Iowa. The first three
mentioned teams are the only ones
rated a chance to cop the 1950
MICHIGAN will have Ed Bu-
chanan and Pete Barthell return-
ing to defend their crowns. Bu-
chanan is reigning trampoline
champ, while Barthell holds both
the tumbling and parallel bars
Minnesota, last year's team
champion, will return Herb Lo-
ken and Howie Swanson. Loken
won the side horse and placed
second to Barthell in tumbling.
Swanson was number two man
in the high bar and took third in
the all-around event.
Illinois' two-man delegation is
composed of Frank Dolan and Joe
Fina. Dolan figured in four of the
seven events at the Big Ten tour-
ney held in Ann Arbor, taking
third in the side horse, and flying
rings, tying teammate Fina for
third in the parallel b'rs and
racking up 1045 points in the all-
around.for second place.
* * *
FINA, besides tying Dolan, also
tied Jim Peterson of Minnesota for
second in tumbling. Peterson, who
will not be in tomorrow's competi-
tion, was all-around winner and
high scorer in the 1949 contest.
Representing Iowa will be
Bruce Sidlinger, third - place
trampoliner in the 1949 Confer-
ence trials. Sidlinger, a sopho-
more last year, went into his
specialty as a favorite only to be
upset by Buchanan and Gay
Hughes of Illinois.
Hughes will be- out of tomor-
row's meet because of a lame back
which refused to respond to treat-
ment. Sidlinger, however, will be
right in the thick of things to-
morrow and will be aided by a
year's valuable experience.
* * *
BARTHELL will be out to dupli-
cate two sensational feats which
marked him as the standout per-
former last year. The Michigan

captain was the only double win-
ner in the nineteenth champion-
ships and set the high perform-
ance point mark with 283 out of
a possible 300 in tumbling.
He will be hard-pressed, how-
ever, by the Illini's Irv Bedard.
Bedard is considered one of the
finest tumblers in American gym-
nastics history and has held the
national title for two years. He was
part of a two-man team that won
the National AAU championships
for Navy Pier last year.

NEW YORK - City College of
New York, with a dazzling exhibi-
tion of long-range shooting, edged
Ohio State, 56-55, last night to
gain the final round of the eastern
NCAA basketball playoffs at Mad-
ison Square Garden.
THE TORRID Beavers, return-
ing to the scene of their National
Invitational Tourney champion-
ship which they won last week,
now advance to the eastern finals,
scheduled for tomorrow night.
All-American forward Dick
Schnittker of the Buckeyes was
the game's high scorer. He con-
tributed 26 points in his team's
losing cause. City College was
paced by guards Floyd Layne
and Norm Mager who meshed 17
and 15 points, respectively.
Personal fouls proved costly to
Ohio State as Schnittker fouled
out with a minute and five seconds
left to play. Three and a half
minutes earlier, his teammate,
high-scoring Bob Donham, had
met the same fate. Thescore was

TAMPA, Fla.-Ewell Blackwell,
who the Cincinnati Reds hope will
be their "Comeback Kid" of 1950,
pitched five scoreless innings yes-
terday as the Rhinelanders licked
the Detroit Tigers, 4 to 1.
Blackwell looked like money in
the bank today. He had the Tigers
hitting into the dirt and allowed
only three balls to be hit out of
the' infield. The Bengals got only,
four hits off Blackwell and all of
them were singles.
KENT PETERSON, who hurled
the last four innings, was equally
effective, allowing only three more
one-base blows.
Art Houtteman and rookie Ray
Herbert did the Detroit pitch-
ing and allowed 11 hits, one of
them a wind-blown homer by
Jimmy Bloodworth. The two
runs the Reds scored in the first
inning were the first given up by
Houtteman this spring.
Houtteman was nicked for the
two runs almost before the sparse
crowd of 1,033 were seated. After
that, Art held the Redlegs score-
less until the fourth.
** * *
THE TIGERS' fielding was the
worst seen so far this spring. They
committed four errors and were'
shaky on a half dozen other plays.
George Kell was the top Tiger
batsman with four safeties in
five trips to the plate. Hoot
Evers, Aaron Robinson and Joe

Ginsberg got the other Detroit
The Cincinnati win was the
third over the Tigers this spring.
Detroit holds one decision over the
Reds and has just one chance left,
at Lakeland next Tuesday.

BROOKLYN followed Tuesday's
whitewashing of the Philadelphia
Athletics at Miami by beating Con-
nie Mack's men again, 8-4, at
Vero Beach.
Pee Wee Reese played shortstop
for the Brooks for the first time
and had no fielding chances. How-
ever, he hit a triple, batted in one
run and scored two.
Zarilla clouted two ninth inning
home runs, one with the bases
loaded, to engineer Boston's Red
Sox to a 12-7 verdict over the
Philadelphia Phillies.
The Sox trailed 7-4 entering
the ninth when Zarilla as lead
off batter slammed a Jocko
Thompson pitch over the short
right field wall. His second,
withthree mates aboard, was off
Curt Simmons.
Dom DiMaggio had homered
with two on in the second to give
the Sox a shortlived 4-3 edge.

A THREE-RUN homer by Pitch-
er Allie Reynolds and triples by
Billy Johnson and Joe Collins en-
abled the New York Yankees to
defeat the St. Louis Cardinals,
8-3, at St. Petersburg for the
Bombers' third straight triumph
over the Redbirds this Spring.
George Munger was the victim
of the Reynolds' clout after two
had walked in the second. It was
the only hit off the St. Louis
righthander in his four innings
on the mound.
