NCAA Gym'
Meet Draws

Yale's Marshall Blazes
To Free-Style Records
Verdeur Smashes Breaststroke Standard;
Yale's Freshmen Take Lead in AAU Meet
c___-4

M a ot
By MARV EPSTEIN
Four Michigan gymnasts will be
out to maintain the improvement
pattern established by the Wol-
verine acrobats this season as they
tackle one of the toughest fields
in history in the NCAA meet at
West Point, New York today.
Captain Pete Barthell, Ed Bu-
chanan, Gordie Levenson and
Connie Ettl comprise the Maize
and Blue quartet in the nation's
biggest gym contest.
THUS FAR the Wolverines have
;surpassed last season's dual meet
record by establishing a new un-
defeated mark. They bettered the
1949 standard in the Western Con-
ference meet by finishing in sec-
and place, one notch higher than
their preceeding attempt in the
Big Ten.
In last year's NCAA competi-
tion Michigan finished ninth in
a field of 16 teams. Only two
men represented the Wolverines
at thalt time, Buchanan and
Barthell.
With four almost sure-fire
point getters entered this time, it
seems a cinch that the improve-
ment pattern will be preserved.
* * *
MICHIGAN totaled 10 points in
the nationals in 1949, with Bu-
chanan notching seven of them
as he dethroned Gay Hughes, Uni-
versity of Illinois trampoline
champ.
Barthell picked up the other
three points with the fifth best
parallel bars performance in a
field of 33.
Although Buchanan will again
confine his activity to the tramp,
Barthell will work all-around with
Ettl as well as trying for points in
the tumbling, side horse, high bar,
rings and his specialty, the para-
llel bars. Ettl will also participate
in all the apparatus events, ex-
cept the trampoline.
* * *
LEVENSON will team with Bu-
chanan in the tramp, forming one
of the most potent duos in the
meet.
Illinois, Big Ten team champ-
ion, and Minnesota, third in the
Conference meet, will be the other
big threats from the midwest at
the "Point" today. Temple Uni-
versity, last year's NCAA team
champion, is heavily favored to
retain its title.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Aussie
John Marshall, the Yale froshj
flash, added two more world rec-
ords to his collection last night
here at Payne Whitney pool, as he
blazed by teammate Jim Mclane
to win the National AAU 220-yard
free style title.
Marshall, who last night broke
the American record for the 1500
meters, hung up marks of 2:05.5'

BOB SANDELL, Night Editor
in the 220 and 2:04.6 in the 200

LA SALLE'S Joe Verdeur broke
his own world record for the 200-
meter breaststroke, but didn't have
enough left to beat Bob Brawner
of Princeton over the title dis-
tance, 220 yards.
Verdeur cracked his own mark
of 2:30. with a 2:29.3 overmthe
200-meter distancse. Brawner
broke the meet record with a
2:29.3 clocking.
Marshall shoved the former 220
yard record-Bill Smith's 2:07.1-
and Alex Jany's 200 meter mark of
2:05.4 into oblivion with his startl-
ing performance.

TUMBLE TO STARDOM:
Ace Wolverine Vaulter Starts
Career in Topsy-turvy Way

By GEORGE FLINT
Paradoxically enough, one might
say that Michigan's Ed Ulvestad
started his pole-vaulting career by
landing on his head.
Although the Wolverine ace is
now one of the top vaulters in
midwest collegiate circles, he be-

ed to stay off due to the soft
condition of the greens and

-Bert Katzenmeyer.
gan his rise to fame in "backyard
track", using one of his. mother's
old curtain rods for a pole.
THAT MAKESHIFT pole prov-
ed itself inadequate by landing the
young athlete on his head, pro-
ducing a concussion and a will to
learn the event the right way.
That was back in Ed's grade
school days in Oak Park, Illi-

nois. Since then he's come a
long way from Chicago, to the
point where he's the best vault-
er in Wolverine track history.

Proof of this is his varsity and
fieldhouse record, set last year in
a dual meet against Ohio State
Universty. Ulvestad's mark is 13
feet, 11 inches.
* * *
THE STRONG, acrobatic Michi-
gan vaulter received a setback this
season which could have had ser-
ious effect on his career, but for
a quick and amazing recovery.

BRAWNER'S clocking in the
breaststroke also broke the Ameri-
can record in the event.
Verdeur salvaged a win for
the night by taking the 300-
yard individual medley over
North Carolina's Jimmy Thomas
in 3:25.1. Jack Taylor of Ohio
State was third.
The New Haven Swim Club,
with the Yale varsity team of
Blum, Farnsworth, Munson, and
P,eid swimming, whipped the Eli
freshmen in the 400-yard free
style relay, winning in 3:26.4.
* *
MATT MANN III was the only
Michigan athlete to qualify in the
Bengal Pitcher
To Get X-Ra

meet. Mann took sixth i nthe 220
free style.
Bruce Harlan of Ohio State
retained his low board diving
crown, edging Skippy Browning
of Texas by 5 points.
Yale's talent-laden freshmen led
the tea mrace with six events com-
pleted. The Marshall-led young,-
sters have 31 points. Back of them
is the Brighton Swimming Club's
one-man-gang, handsome Joseph
Verdeur, with 16. Ohio State's
NCAA and Big Ten champions are
third with 15 and the New Haven
Swim Club is right behind the
Buckeyes with 14.
The Eli freshmen placed 1-2-3 in
the 220 free style event, since Ray
Moore closed fast to gain the po-
sition behind Marshall and Mc-
Lane.
The Marshall-McLane tandem
will be out after more records to-
morrow as the meet swings into
its final phase. Scheduled for to-
morrow night will be the finals in
the 440-yard free style, high board
diving, and medley relay.
Pro Golfers
Revolt Against
PGA Control
CHICAGO - (P) -- The Pro-
fessional Golfer's Association of
America disclosedilast night that
most of its headline tournament
stars are planning to bolt the or-
ganization and form their own
group.
The player revolt; apparently
aimed against PGA tourney oper-
ation, has been boiling within the
ranks since the Phoenix Open last
January, Tom Crane, PGA, exe-
cutive-secretary, said.
CRANE SAID the "governitig
body" of the group includes George
Schneiter, manager of the PGA
tournament bureau; Sam Snead,
Jimmy Demaret, Lloyd Mangrum,
Ben Hogan, Cary Middlecoff,
Clayton Heafner, Johnny Palmer,
Bob Hamilton, Toney Penna and
Jimmy Thomson.
The newest recruit, he sid,
is Lawson Little, who replaced
Ellsworth Vines when Vines
withdrew from tourney golf re-
cently to accept a private club
job.
This imposing array of links'
talent is representative of the en-
tire tournament field since it in-
cludes all the major title and mon-
ey winners-the players the fans
pay to see perform.
Warfare within the PGA ranks
broke into the open yesterday at
Wilmington, N.C., with disclosure
that a group of about 25 of the top
circuit players were on the verge
of establishing their own organ-
ization with or without sanction
from the parent body.

EXHIBITION REVIEW:
Tiger Hurling Edges Cards;
BravesSqueezePast Yanks

I

ST. PETERSBURG, FLA.,-(P)
- The Detroit Tigers downed the
St. Louis Cards, 2 to 1, in eleven
innings yesterday for the Birds'
fourth straight loss.
Both clubs got top-flight hurl-
ing. Rookie Saul Rogovin and Hal
White stopped the Cards with
seven scattered hits. Fred Martin
and Harry Brecheen also displayed
mid-season form in five-inning
stunts.
Rookie Tom Poholsky, up
from Rochester, hurled the
eleventh inning and was the los-
ing pitcher. The winningrun
resulted from an error by Steve
Bilko folowed by singles by
Johnny Groth and Dick Kry-
hoski.
Neither team made a substitu-
tion except on the mound.
The result gave Tiger manager
Red Rolfe his most encouraging
pitching news in days. The De-
troit mound corps, believed one
of the club's biggestbassets, has
been slipping in recent exhibi-
tions.
BlRADENTON, FLA., - (P) -
Coming from behind with a
three-run outburst in the eighth
inning, the Boston Braves de-
feated the New York Yankees,
7-6, yesterday.
A single to center by Willard
Marshall, ex-New York Giant,
scored Sibby Sisti and Sam
Jethroe with the tying and win-
ning runs against Duane Pil-
lette. Fred Sanford, first Yankee
pitcher to go seven innings this
spring, turned over a 6-to-4
lead to Pillette, having held the
Braves to seven hits.
* * *
TUCSON, ARIZ., - (U") - The
Cleveland Indians' five-game win-
ning streak came to an end and
righthander Bob Lemon got his

as the Tribe lost to the Chicago
Cubs 14-9.
Lemon was pounded for six runs
in the seventh inning as the Cubs
smashed three extra base hits on
his first five pitches. He had al-
lowed only one earned run in 19
previous exhibition-game innings.
The Cubs got a fourth hit from
Lemon and 14 other safe blows
against Dick Rozek, Sam Zoldak
and Early Wynn. One of the hits
was. a three-run homer that cen-
terfielder CarmenMaur clouted
425 feet over the centerfield wall.
Allie Clark slammed a home run
for the Indians.
TAMPA, FLA., - (P) - Bos-
ton's Red Sox suffered their
first shutout of the spring train-
ing season yesterday when Cin-
cinnati's Reds, aided by the
wildness of Maurice Mcdermott,
pushed over two second-inning
scores for a 2-4 victory.
Singles by Jimmy Bloodworth
and Red Stalleup, began the
Cinci :econd. Herman Wehmeier
foled out after ffixie Howell
had walked to load the bases.
The stringbean Sox southpaw
then issued passes to Grady
iatton and Johnny Wyrostek
for the only runs of the after-
noon.
ALPINE, TEX., - (A') - A ninth
inning homer by Chicago's John-
ny Ostroski was canceled and the
White Sox and St. Louis Browns
settled for a 5-5 tie in a Bob-
Tailed exhibition yesterday.
The game was called in the
ninth to enable the two clubs to
catch a train. The score reverted
to the end of the eighth inning
in which Brownie Billy Demars
belted a two-run homer to erase

But Ed surprised both Canham!
and Michigan track fans by re-
turningto competition in three
weeks, and vaulted 13 feet to take
a first in the Wisconsin meet.
ED'S BEST competitive mark
was made in the Chicago Relays
last year - a 14 foot effort. That
peak has been his ambition since
the beginning of his career, and
he feels that he's once more re-
gaining the fine edge necessary for
shooting for that height again this
year.
The pole vault was Ulvestad's
first love in sports, and contin-
ues to be his main athletic in-
terest, although he enjoys golf
quite a bit. He tried the broad
and high jumps in high school,
but let these events go after an
ankle injury.
As to other vaulters--Ed natur-
ally feels that world-record holder
Cornelius Warmerdam was the
greatest. He saw the California
flash set the present world mark,
and thinks that the Warmerdam
combination of speed, strength,
and bodily agility is the ideal for
a really great competitor.
AFTER COLLEGE, Ed plans to
embark on an engineering career,
for which he's studying here.
Scholastically, he was the top man
on last year's track squad.
As for this, his senior year of
competition, Ulvestadl has hopes
of being on a conference champion
team in the outdoor meet. Ed
thinks it's quite posible that the
improvement of tbh( M ii'e al;d

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.-( P)-
Hal Newhouser may learn today
what's wrong with his pitch Iig
arm.
The Detroit Tigers' star south-
paw will undergo a series of x-
rays of his upperarm and shoul-
der at 10 a.m. at Morrill Memorial
Hospital in Lakeland.
The pain which has permitted
Newhouser to pitch only two inn-
ings in spring exhibition games is
centered in his left shoulder. How-
ever, Trainer Jake Homel has been
unable to find any muscle con-
gestion.
"Several times last year, New-
houser complained of the same
soreness," Homel explained. "But
it always worked out in a few days.
This is the longest it has ever
stuck with him."
Manager Red Rolfe admitted
several days ago he was concerned
over his ace pitcher.'
