IOWA CITY-Ohio State Uni-
versity's power-packed swimming
squad walked off with its fifth
consecutive Western Conference
title here yesterday afternoon
without the services of ace free-
styler Ford Konno.
Scoring points in every event
except the individual medley. The
Bucks finished the three-day meet
with a total of 102 points. Second

OTHER TEAMS finished with
the following totals: Michigan
State 48, Iowa 35, Northwestern
30, Purdue 22, Wisconsin 18, Il-
linois 10, Minnesota 6, and In-
diana 5.
Konno, who won the 1500S-
meters battle Thursday night
and placed second in the 220-
yard free style Friday, picked up
a case of the mumps and was
placed in confinement in the
University of Iowa hospital. The
same malady sidelined Konno's
roommate Dick Cleveland a week
Teammate Rocco Cirigliano took
up some of the slack by placing
second to MSC's Bert McClach-
lan in the 440-yard free style. The
scratched Konno was last year's.
winner in this event.
IN THE FIRST race of yester-
day's final session, Ohio's Yoshi
Oyakawa, who is in a class by
himself in the back stroke events,
coolly pulled his way to the 100-
yard back stroke title in 57.8, a
new Iowa pool record. In doing
so he became the first double win-
ner of the meet, having copped
the 200-yard laurels Friday night.
Picking up a yard every length,
the fleet Hawaiian steamed into
the finish better than four yards
ahead of second place Fred
Bautz of Purdue.
John Chase of Michigan finish-
ed sixth in the time of 1:02.9.
Michigan State's John Du-
deck pulled the biggest upset of
the day in beating Buckeye Jer-
ry Holan by a good two yards in
the 100-yard breaststroke final.
The winning time was 1.01.1,
also a new Iowa pool record.
The surprising Dudeck led the
pack into the first turn, and slow-
ly pulled further ahead in the last
three lengths. Holan, the ex-Big
Ten champion in this event, was
forced to come from behind to take
second place away from Illini Bob
Wolverine breast stroker Glen-
wood Miller was eliminated in the
morning preliminary heats.

STREAMLINED Keith Peterson
of Northwestern. Friday's winner
of the 50-yard free style, picked
up his second gold medal in the
100-yard free style, beating Olym-
pic swimmer Cleveland to the fin-
ish by less than a yard.
The Wildcat captain led from
start to finish, and covered the
distance in the comparatively
slow time of 51.5 seconds.
Ron Gora picked up a third for
the Maize and Blue, and Don Hill
added two points to the Wolver-
ine total with his somewhat dis-
appointing fifth. Fourth place fin-
isher Frank Pisacreta of Indiana
was clocked in 51.9, two tenths of
a second better than Gora's 52.1,
but the judges' decision gave the
Michigander third. Hill's time was

also given as 52.1.
SPARTAN captain McLachlan
won the 440-yard free style hands
down, hitting the finish tape al-
most half a length ahead of Cirig-
liano of Ohio State and Dave An-
derson of Minnesota who finish-
ed second and third.
Captain Wally Jeffries of Mich-
igan placed for the third time in
the meet, this time picking up a
fifth. His scorching stretch drive
carried him within a razor's edge
of Iowa's Ross Lucas who finished
fourth. Both were timed in 4:52.4.
As usual, it was all Bumpy
Jone in the 150-vard individual

monoply by placing third in yes-
terday's three-meter board finals.
Ohio's low-board winner Bob-
by Clotworthy twisted and som-
ersaulted his way to the three-
meter championship despite a
bad miss on his next-to-last dive.
His total of 485 plus points was
nearly fifteen better than com-
panion Jerry Harrison of Ohio
State who posted 470.55. The
third member of the Buckeye
diving triumvirate, Morley Sha-
piro, finished a lowly sixth.

300-yard medley relay, went to

Athletes Deny
ilS C Charges
University of Michigan athletes
said yesterday there is no organi-
zation on the Wolverine campus
that compares with the Spartan
Foundation, the cause of the dis-
ciplinary action taken against
Michigan State by the Big Ten.
In a United Press story, the
athletes, representing all types
of sports, contradicted state-
ments made earlier in the week
by MSC athletes that "organiza-
tions similar to the Spartan
Foundation exist on every Big
Ten campus."
Among more than a score of
athletes interviewed, only one said
he received outright cash and it
was from "alumni friends and the
university knew nothing about it."
Others said they received scholar-.
ships but "they were not purely
athletic and the jobs were not'
soft touches."

CLEARWATERs Fla.-Manager
Fred,,Hutchinson's rebuilt Detroit
Tigers made their debut on the
grapefruit exhibition circuit yes-
terday with a 10-inning 6-5 vic-
tory over the Philadelphia Phil-
lies of the National League.

Three home runs and four dou-
ble plays did the trick for the
Tigers,ywho have been training
mightily to get ohit of the Ameri-
can League cellar.
Eddie Kazak's infield single
scored Steve Souchock from third
base in the ninth to pull the Tigers
into a 5-5 tie.
Hal Erickson held the Phils in
the ninth and the game went
into overtime with Jim Kon-
stanty pitching for the National
Leaguers against Paul Foytack,
a recruit righthander.
With the bases empty in the
tenth, Owen Friend hit his second
home run of the day to win for
the Tigers.
Bob Nieman also homered for
the Bengals.
Erickson was credited with the
victory. Konstanty was the losing

New York Yankees' infield com-
mitted five errors in the fifth inn-
ing yesterday to hand the St.,Louis
Cardinals five runs and 6-4 vic-
tory before 6,920 fans in the grape-
fruit league opener at Al Lang
Bob Weisler, a rookie left-
hander who is on leave from the
Air Force, was the victim of the
messy inning. The Yanks held
a 2-1 edge when the frame be-
gan with errors by 'third base-
man Kal Segrist and shortstop
Andy Carey.
Wiesler retired the next two bat-
ters but then was tagged fdr suc-
cessive doubles by Jack Faszholz,
the winning pitcher, and second
baseman Solly Hemus. Three more
boots followed.
Veteran Joe Coleman--striving to
make a comeback in the majors-
teamed up with rookies Charley
Bishop and Marion Fricano yes-
terday to turn in a one hitter as
the Philadelphia Athletics downed
Washington, 6-2, in a grapefruit
league opener.
The only Washington hit of
'the game-a line single by Jim
Busby-came off Bishop in the
first inning.
The A's, rated by the experts as
a team to consider in the Ameri-
can League pennant race this year,
put their six runs together on 11
hits off the offerings of Spec
Shea. Bunky Stewart and Walt
Masterson. Shea was charged with
the loss while Bishop was the win-

his teammate Grant Scruggs took
third in the same race. Scruggs
placed running on little better
that one foot, carrying through on
sheer guts and determination.
Last week he badly pulled a ten-
don in his leg and it pained him
greatly to walk, let alone run.
The sophomore speedster was
running dead last coming off the
last turn, bul with a driving
finish came up to take third.
George Lynch, who captured the
two mile, ran another fine race for
the Maize and Blue. He content-
ed himself with running third be-
hind Gene Mathews of Purdue and
Hoosier Jack Wellman who had
alternated setting pace. On the
gun lap he moved out and passed
handily to win by ten yards.
FRITZ NILSSON kept his sea-
son long strong of victories in the
shot alive by tossing the 16 pound

ball 53 feet 11 inches, his longest
heave of the season.
Two breaks cut substantially
into the Wolverine point total.
In the semifinals of the 60-yard
dash John Vallortigara pulled a
muscle and was eliminated from
the finals. He was an expected
point winner.
In the finals of the 70-yard low,
hurdles Van Bruner stumbled
while clearing the last hurdle,
smashed into it, and went sprawl-
ing to the cinders as he crossed
the finish line. He barely took
fourth, though he was even with
title holder Williams coming into
the last barrier.
The top .point-scorer for the
Wolverines was Ross, who, along
with taking the mile, pressed rec-
ord-breaker Siders to the hilt in
the half mile, and came in second.
Carroll ran another fine race
in the relay when he received the
baton slightly behind Ben Yout-
sey of Purdue, but overtook him
and won by five yards.
