Special to The Daily
power-laden tennis team became
the first Spartan squad to win a
Big Ten championship here yes-
terday with a four-point edge over
second, ,place Michigan.
MSC's winning total was 17
points. They were followed by
Michigan (13), Iowa (10/2), In-
diana (9), Illinois (9), Northwest-
ern (7), Wisconsin (51/2), Purdue
(1), Minnesota (0), and Ohio
THE Wolverines' second place
finish was better than expected,
most observers having pegged the
Murphymen for third at best.
Of the three Michigan final-
ists, only Gene Barrack man-
aged to win yesterday. Captain
Al Hetzeck lost to MSC's Lenny
Brose in the number one singles
match, 6-4, 12-10, and the Jack
Smart-Mike Schwartz doubles
team lost to Bob Hoffman and
Bob Bennorth of Illinois, 10-8,
Barrack played his usual steady,
conservative game in downing
Michigan State's Keith Kimble
in the number five singles cham-
pionship match, 2-6, 6-3 and 9-7.

IT WAS SWEET revenge for
the youthful Barrack, who had
lost a three set heartbreaker to
Kimble in last week's dual meet at
The Hetzeck-Brose battle for
the Conference singles crown
was a repeat of their earlier
clash. After winning the first
game, Hetzeck faltered momen-
tarily, allowin gthe Spartan ace
to break his service in the third
game, and Brose held his own
to cop the first set.
Hetzeck opened fast in the sec-
ond set, flashing to a 5-2 lead
before he stalled. Brose tied the
count at five all and from there
the lead see-sawed until the twen-

WITH A ONE game advantage
he held his own serve to close out
the longest match of the day. It
was a tough loss to swallow for

behind time after time only to fall
to his Spartan nemesis.

EVANSTON-(M)-The Big Ten
yesterday voted to extend the Rose
Bowl football series in the manner
proposed by the Pacific Coast Con-
ference, which has lost five
straight Pasadena classics.
The renewal probably will be on
a three-year basis.
IN A SURPRISING compromise
ballot, the Big Ten athletic direc-
tors and faculty representatives
approved the annual classic, but
with a not more than once-every-
two-years appearance by the same
During the first five years of
the expired pact, the Big Ten
had a once-every-three-years
appearance limit for the same
team, while the Pacific Coast
loophad no restriction what-
ever. California, for instance,
represented the PCC in the last
three bowl games.
The Pacific Coast Conference,
now negotiating on a three-year
renewal pact with the Tournament
of Roses committee, campaigned
all last year for a mutual method
of sending the same bowl contend-
er not more than once every two

IN VIEW of its commitment to
the Pasadena sponsors of the
game, the PCC probably will spe-
cify a three year extension.
It was widely reported earlier
that the Big Ten not only would
go no further than its past once-
every-three-year policy, but also
might drop the Bowl pact en-
It was believed that the Pacific
coast conference will waste no
time concurring in the Big Ten's
action, although special commit-

Special to The Daily
EVANSTON - Smooth-stroking
Tommy Nieporte led the Buckeyes
of Ohio State to the Big Ten golf
championship here yesterday as
Michigan skidded through a rain-
storm to fourth place.
The Buckeyes took the lead
from Purdue at the end of 54 holes
and held on to win despite a great
performance on the links by Gene
Coulter, veteran Boilermaker.

Coe, Chapman Finalists
In British Amateur Golf
PORTHCAWL, WALES-(P-Dead-tired Charlie Coe, and dapper
Dick Chapman smashed the last British hopes of lifting the American
mortgage on their amateur golf championship yesterday.
The two former U.S. champions meet tomorrow over 36 holes in
the third All-American final in five years. Chapman will have played
in all three. He never has won.
* * * *
THEIR GOLF today was the equal of anything seen in these golf-
mad islands for many a year.
The 40-year-old Chapman was five under par for the 30
holes he needed to put the skids under two Irish hopes-Joe Carr
and Cecil Beamish. He ousted both by scores of 4 and 3.
Coe, the 27-year-old former University of Oklahoma star, played
unbeatable golf as he edged Sammy Urzetta, the current U.S. cham-
pion, 3 and 2, in the morning quarter-final. And he had enough leftI
to down Albert Evans of Wales, 4 and 2, in the afternoon.
TO BRITISH EYES, Chapman was the bigger villain. They had
felt sure they would see the 29-year-old Carr playing in the final,
particularly after he routed defending titleholder Frank Stranahan
good enough for first in Big Ten
individual medal play.
Bob Olson closed his collegi-
ate golfing career successfully
as he finished third individually.
The blond senior shot two
rounds of 72 for a 72-hole total
The Wolverines just didn't have
it yesterday, outside of Olson and
Dean Lind, though they were only
three strokes short of second
place. The teams ended in this
1. Ohio State, 1528.
2. Purdue, 1540.
3. Wisconsin, 1542.
4. Michigan, 1543.
5. Northwestern, 1544.
6. Michigan State, 1567.
7. Iowa, 1568.
8. Minnesota, 1570.
9. Illinois, 1600.
10. Indiana, 1620.
Almost half the field was still
out on the course when the rain
began. At the time Purdue and
OSU were almost deadlocked for
BUT NIEPORTE and his mates
played steady golf throughout the
downpour and came through with
clutch shots when they were most
needed to win the title.
The Wolverines had twice
whipped Ohio State, once in Co-
lumbus and once in Ann Arbor,
but such was not the case yes-
Over the entire tournament only
one Buckeye shot over 80 in 20
18-hole rounds played. Much cre-
dit must go to Nieporte's team-
mates-Don Johnson, Bob Ander-
son, Bob Clouse and Dick Widdoes,
for their steady play.
