"Champions are made not born,"
said Michigan quarter-miler Laird
Sloan.
"That's what my high school
coach used to tell me and that is
the way I feel.
"The person who works harder
than the other will do better,"
continued Sloan. He practices be-
tween two and three hours every
night and thinks it is essential to
keep him in shape.
Started at Niie
-Born in Montreal, Sloan began
running when he was nine years
old in grade school track events.
In high school he was an all-
around athlete, winning four let-
ters in track, four in swimming,
three in basketball and two in
football.
Sloan said that one of his great-
est thrills came when he won his
high school's all-around athlete
trophy. He was only 16 at the
.time and the first junior athlete
to win the trophy.
When asked why he chose to
come to Michigan, Sloan, a junior
and a member of Lambda Chi
Alpha, said that two fellow mem-
bers of the Montreal Track Club
had gone to Michigan ahead of
him and done very well in track.
He said that this had quite a bit
to do with his decision to come
here.
One of his two friends was Jack
Carroll, '54, who helped set a
world record in the distance med-
ley relay while running for Michi-
gan.
Ran In Empire Games
Another experience Sloan re-
called was when he ran in the
British Empire Games, his team
placing a close second behind Eng-
land's team in the mile relay.
At Michigan, Sloan has been on
the track team all three years,
concentrating mainly on the 440
and mile relay.
Sloan has had bad luck this sea-
son. He broke his foot early in
the year and did not see much
action during the indoor season.
Almost a month ago he pulled a

Tracksters
Qualify 10
In Prelims
Special To The Daily
MINNEAPOLIS-Michigan and
Indiana showed the way in the
preliminaries of the Big Ten track
climax here yesterday afternoon,
each squad qualifying ten men for
the finals to be held today.
Iowa trailed with nine, followed
by Michigan State with seven and
Ohio State and Northwestern with
six apiece.
,One Event Decided
One event was decided -the
discus - and it was won by Min-
nesota's Byrl Thompson, who
heaved the plate 160'3". Neither
Ken Bottoms nor Dale Eldred,
Michigan's two entries, managed
to finish in the top five, a neces-
sary feat in order to score.
In addition to the discus finals,
qualifying competition was held
in seven events and these seven
plus six others which require no
prelims will comprise today's ac-
tion.
Thus things for the Wolverines
look much brighter than when the
reigning Conference monarchs left
Ann Arbor Thursday. The reason:
in four of the six events for which
no preliminary action is held,
Michigan figures quite strongly.
These four are the two mile, shot
put, high jump and pole vault,
and, barring physical ailments or
superhuman efforts by the other
entries in the events, firsts beckon
to the Maize and Blue in every
one, with additional places a pos-
sibility in each.
Highlighting yesterday's pagean-
try was an outstanlding perform-
ance by Indiana's great sophomore
broad-jumper, Greg Bell.
He sailed 25'114", the best ef-
fort of the season in the world
thus far. His teammate, Brealon
Donaldson, executed the next best
jump, 23'4".
Hendricks in Three Events
Michigan's Tommy Hendricks
qualified in this event and ex-
perienced an extremely busy day,
also placing in the 220-yd. low
hurdles and the unfamiliar 120-
yd. highs.
Bob Rudesill also qualified in
the low hurdles, and perhaps be-
cause of this was not entered in
the 440, in which Laird Sloan,
fighting against a conditioning
lag, was able to remain for today's
finale.
Only Dick Flodin among the
Wolverines turned in a best per-
formance, topping the 220 field
with a :22.0 clocking.
Other Michigan qualifiers in-
clude Jimmy Pace in the 100 and
Pete Gray, Robin Varian and
Ralph Gray in the 880.
Today will find, in addition to
the qualifiers, Eeles Landstrom and
Bob Appleman in the pole vault;
Mark Booth, Brendan O'Reilly,
Ron Kramer and Stan Menees in
the high jump; Dave Owen and
Kramer in the shot put; Ron
Wallingfiord and Helmar Dollwet
in the mile; and Wallingford and
Geert Keilstrup in the two mile.

Special To The Daily
EVANSTON, ILL. -yAfter 36
holes of action in the Big Ten
meet, Michigan's golf team is in
a third place tie with MSU behind
Purdue and Ohio State.
The Wolverines have taken 759
strokes to trail the Boilermakers
by 16.
The low man for Michigan yes-
terday was Captain Bob McMas-
ters who shot a 72-77-149. He was
closely followed by John Schubeck
who had 74-76-150.
Medalist Honors
Medalist honors for the day
went to deefnding NCAA cham-
pion Joe Campbell of Purdue. Af-
ter shooting a 71 in the morning
he got a 72 to give him a 36 hole
total of 143.
He was followed by Northwest-
ern's Rudy Boyd at 144 and Ohio's
Rick Jones at 145.
At the end of 18 holes McMas-
ters was in a fourth place tie in

'M' PITCHING FALTERS:
Spartans Blast Diarnondmen, 10-4

Golfers Tie for Third,
Still Cling to Title Hopes

the race for individual honors, but
some poor short putting early in
the afternoon hurt his score for
the second 18.
Schubeck's afternoon round
would have been much better if
it had not been for four penalty
strokes. On the sixth hole he had
to take a two stroke penalty when
he drove his tee shot out of bounds.
Bad Luck
On the fourteenth a bit of bad
luck cost him two more. His ball
somehow got lodged in the open
root of a tree in the rough. He
had to declare the ball unplayable,
this incurring another two stroke
penalty.
The players feel that Michigan
actually has a better chance to
take the team title than the
standings at the end of the first
day of action might indicate.
In the first place, 16 strokes is
not too great a deflict to overcome
in 36 holes of golf.
For instance, at the end -of 18
holes yesterday Michigan was lead-
ing the pack and was five strokes
ahead of Purdue. However, in the
afternoon the Boilermakers picked
up 21 strokes in 18 holes to take
over the lead.
OSU Short A Man
Also, Ohio State, currently in
second spot, is playing with only
five men. Their sixth player, Mel
Woefling was stricken with appen-
dicitis yesterday and was operated
on at 5:00.
This means that none of their
players can afford to slack off
since the team scores consist of
the five top individual scores.
Purdue is in a similar situation.
One of their players, Ed McCal-
lum, soared all the way to 165,
thus virtually eliminating himself.

EAST LANSING-Pitching was
the key to Michigan State's vic-
tory over Michigan by a 10-4 mar-
gin yesterday afternoon.
Three Wolverine hurlers com-
bined to give up a .total of 14 hits,
five of them went for extra bases
and 11 bases on balls. Hurler Ed
Hobaugh went the distance for
the Spartans while allowing nine
hits and five walks.
Play MSU Today
Today Michigan will be seeking
revenge against MSU in a double
header at Ferry Field starting at
1:30. Yesterday's loss put the Wol-
verines virtually out of the run-
ning for second place in the Big
Ten race.
Until the fifth inning Bill
Thurston, starting pitcher ap-
peared to be doing rather well,
but in the fifth after he gave up
three sucessive singles and one
run Coach Fisher replaced him
with Dick Peterjohn. Peterjohn
gave up three sucessive balls to
Roscoe Davis and then Fisher pul-
led him out for Glenn Girardin.
Girardin issued the fourth ball
to put Davis on base to load the
sacks. He proceeded to get out of
the inning, but not until three
more runs had scored.
This fifth inning was the turn-
ing point that really iced the game
for the Spartans.

M i c h i g a n's biggest scoring
threat came in the sixth inning
when the Wolverines bunehed up
three htis to score two runs. Howie
Tommelein flied to center to open
the stanza, Ken Tippery singled
and Steve Boros grounded to the
shortstop to force Tippery.

Al Sigman singled and Bob
Sealby hit another to drive in two
runs including Sigman who scored
all the way from first. g
The Wolverines completely lost
hope when MSU scored three more
runs in the eighth inning on a
home run by Jim Sack. Captain
Hobaugh walked to start the in-
ning and after Frank Palamara
flied out to left, football All-Am-
erican Earl Morrall drilled a single
through the infield setting the
stage for Sack's homer.
16 Rurmers Stranded
The fact that Michigan State
left 16 runners stranded on the
base paths is little short of re-
markable.
Captain shortstop Moby Bene-
dict left the game in the seventh
inning and was replaced at short
by Boros. Frank Ronan came in
to take over third base. During
batting practice on Thursday Ben-
edict sprained an already injured
elbow. The elbow began to really
bother him during the game. It
is questionable as to whether he'll
be playing in today's contests,
which will be the last of his col-
lege career.
Three Wolverines got two hits,
Tommelein, Sigman, and Boros.
Both of Boros' hits were good for
extra bases. In the second inning
he hit a double and in the fourth
he tripled to deep center field.

LOS ANGELES (JP)-The Pacific
Coast Conference commissioper's
office acknowledged yesterday it
has received charges aimed at
University of Southern California
athletes and will investigate the
accusations.
"We have received the informa-
tion. Beyond that there is no
comment," said Bernie Hammer-
beck, assistant to Commissioner
Victor O. Schmidt.
The charges, sent the conference
by J. Miller Leavy, a UCLA alum-
nus, claims a Trojan booster group

paid out $71,235 to more than 60
athletes over a two-year period in
excess of the conference athletic
code.
Previously, Schmidt said that if
the accusations can be substainti-
ated, a special meeting of the con-
ference might be called to take
action.
Hammerbeck, a deputy district
attorney of Los Angeles County,
said he could not estimate how
long it would take to probe the
case,
