Michigan came up with its firs
Big Ten championship since th
spring of. 1953 as the Wolverin
harriers placed first in the Wester
Conference cross-country m e e
yesterday held at Chicago.
The Michigan harriers won thei
first conference title since 1922 an
only their second in conferenc
history with a total of 55 points
Michigan State, the pre-meet fa
vorites, having copped the title th
last three times, finished second t
the Wolverines with 75 points. (I
cross country the team with th
lowest team score is declared th
winner.) llinoi totaled 81 point
to hold down third place.
Indiana finished behind Illinoi
with 87 points, followed by Ohi
State with 88 and Wisconsin wit]
95. Northwestern and Purdue faile
to compete, while Minnesota and
Iowa also lacked a full team.
Canham Pleased
Michigan track coach, Don Can
ham, was extremely pleased wit
the squad's showing, saying thai
all runners "performed to absolute
capacity." There were 43 runners
in the four-mile event, with Wol-
verine runners among the leaders
from the start.
John Moule, Michigan miler,
picked up a fourth place to lead
the Wolverines across the finish
tape. His time was a good 20:38.
Al Labina placed seventh with a
fast 20:43. Ron Wallingford, Michi-
gan two-miler, was second in the
pack about 700 yards from the fin-
ish line. However, he was forced
to slow down to a near walk be-
cause of stomach cramps. His time
of 21:19 was god enough to give
him 17th place.
Geoff Dooley, Wolverine half mil-
er, ran the four-mile event in 20:50
to take eighth place behind La-
bina. Lou Kwiker finished in the
25th spot with a time of 22:04.
Ferguson Forced to Quit
Iowa's Rich Ferguson, seeking
his third straight individual title,
*was forced to qui$ the race while
running in the final mile. This led
the way' for Jim Lambert of In-
diana, who came' in first with a
19:59, 80 yards ahead of Ohio
State's Bob Coldren. Sophomore
Bob Mansfield, running the dis-
tance in 22:04, placed 25th, while
Chuck Morton, another soph,
crossed the line in 33rd place in
r The weather was ideal for run-
ning," commented Canham. The
race was held in Washington Park
-southwest of Chicago. Michigan's
victory was the first in 32 years of
the fall sport. The meet attracted
the largest number of teams in the
Big Ten Conference since World
War II.
Eligibility of
Army Gridder
To Be Probed
NEW YORK MP)-Asa A. Bush-
nell, commissioner of the Eastern
College Athletic Conference, said
yesterday the eligibility of Tommy
Bell, Army halfback, was being
studied by appropriate committees
of the ECAC and that a prompt
decision could be expected.
It was discovered Thursday that
Bell, who has averaged 11.59 yards
a try from his right halfback post,
was playing his fifth season with
the Cadets, two of them as fresh-'

Bushnell's office pointed out
that both the military and naval
academies had received permis-
sion to waive certain sections of
the normal eligibility rules and
that the Bell case required special
Lt. Col. James T. L. Schwenk,
graduate manager of athletics,
said Army knew of Bell's status butc
felt the Cadets had not violatedc
any rules.

NEW YORK M-The State Ath-
letic Commission yesterday heard
21 witnesses in an inquiry into
charges of alleged "blacklisting
and discrimination" by the New
York Boxing Managers Guild
against members of the recently
formed Metropolitan Boxing Alli-
Members of the MBA claim they
are being blacklisted because they
are not members of the guild and
refuse to pay $100 for each TV
performance of a main event box-
ing card.
Continued Next Week
At the conclusion of more than
six hours of testimony, the com-
mission, with chairman Robert K.
Christenberry presiding, ordered
the inquiry continued until next
Matchmakers, promoters a n d
managers were heard yesterday
In addition 13 members of the al-
liance, mainly composed of man-
agers, gave affidavit to the com-
Manuel Robbins, attorney for the
commission, asked the promoters
and matchmakers whether the
New York Boxing Managers Guild
had exerted any influence to keep
non-members and members of the
MBA from getting any fights,
whether anyone from the guild had
asked them to confine their match-
es to guild members, and whether
they had anything to do with pay-
ing a $100 television "donation"
to the guild for each main event
fighter on a TV program.
Blanket Denials
All but one made blanket deni-
als. That was Tex Sullivan, match-
maker for the London Sporting
Club at St. Nicholas Arena in New
Sullivan said in the case of some
19 of 52 main event fighters, he
had checks for $100 made out to
managers. He said the managers,
most of them from California, had
told him to make out checks to'
them for $100 and leave the checks
with Gus D'Amato, collector for
the guild.
Sullivan said they told him they
had to get out of town and wanted1
to make their "donations" to the

Morrall stands as his top passer

The Spartans finally settled on
the split-T offense as they :rolled
over Washington State last week,
and it is this type of attack that
has given Coach Bennie Ooster-
baan and his Wolverines plenty of
headaches at several key points
this season.

Today's contest marks the 47th
such affair in the long intra-state
rivalry. Michigan has beaten State

tles ending in a tie.
