Gomberg House yesterday won
the residence hall track title at
Ferry Field for the fourth straight
year, scoring 241/ points to run-
nerup Hayden's 191/3.
The independent track meet was
held simultaneously, with the Sel-
dom Seek Kids making an appear-
ance worth 32 winning points, as
the second place Evans' Scholars
garnered 19.
Gomberg Repeats
It was last season's finish all
over again for Gomberg, with
the winner not certain until the
final anu deciding race. This year
it was Gomberg's Fred Channin's
time of nine seconds flat in the
65-yard low hurdles that was the
deciding factor.
Gomberg also got two other
firsts, one in the mile run, which
'was won by Pete Marudas. Marud-
as, a short little speedster, was
out in front of the field all the
way and eventually stretched his
lead to about 25 yards at the tape.
Teammate Dick MacQueen pick-
ed up second place, behind Mar-
udas' winning time of 4:48.8.
The quarter-mile run accounted
for the other Gomberg first place
finish as Dave Stawski crossed
over in 0:57.8.
Second place Hayden also pick-
ed up several firsts but did not
have the needed depth to pass the
winners. Larry Levy got one of
these in the century dash. The
880-yard run also provided the
needed points by virtue of Ernie
Sims' win. ,
The high jump ended in a
three-way tie for first between
Jim Foley of Hayden, Tom Tulle-
son of Lloyd, and Spence BeMent
of Michigan, as each failed to
Cats Are 'Up'
EVANSTON, Ill. (A')- Coach
Lou Saban of buffeted North-
western said his winless Wild-
cat players "have a feeling they
can beat Michigan this Satur-
"We know we're playing the#
best in the country," Saban
continued, "and we'll play our
best to beat them. Our kids
still have good spirit and the
squad morale is good.
"Psychologically, this is a
good time to play Michigan
after its prized victory over Ar-
my. If Ron Kramer is out, as
they say, that's another advan-
tage for us."

Taylor, while not managing to
take a single first, nevertheless
finished a strong third with 181/2
Also-rans Cooley, Williams, and
Adams broke into the scoring col-
umn with winning performances
in the pole vault, shot put and 65
yard high hurdles respectively.
In the independent competition,
which included eight events, the
Seldom Seen Kids turned in some

pretty fair performances as they
clinched three first places and a
number of other point-winning
efforts. The Seldom Seen Kids, re-
presented by several Varsity ath-
letes including Moby Benedict, Jim
Clark, Don Poloskey and Bill
Mile Clash
NEW YORK (IP)-America's
two top milers, Wes Santee, and
Fred Dwyer, will compete in a
special mile race along with
Billy Tidwell of Emporia State
Teachers Oct. 20 in Madison
Square Garden to aid the
Olympic fund.
Santee, the former Kansas
runner, has a best time of
4:00.5, andDwyer, running for
the New York Athletic club,
has done 4:01.8.
Thurston, also featured last year's
Intramural Athlete of the Year,
Jack Watson.
One of the Kid's firsts was earn-
ed by Benedict with a broad jump
of 18' 4". The other two were
gained in the 880 and 440-yard
relays, which were run in times
of 50.9 sec. and 1:49.8 mihutes,
Tennis Star
Trabert Inks
Pro Contract,
LOS ANGELES (,')-Tony Tra-
bert, regarded by many as tle
world's top tennis amateur, suc-
cumbed Tuesday to an offer of
professional riches from promoter
Jack Kramer.
Kramer's coup in getting the
U.S. and Wimbledon titlist's sig-
nature on a contract paves the
way for what will doubtless be the
biggest raid on amateur net ranks
in history.
For big Jack, onetime king of
the amateurs himself, is confident
that Australian stars Lew Hoad
and Ken Rosewall, conquerors in
Davis Cup play, will follow Tra-
bert into his fold.
Trabert, Hoad and Rosewall,
with Kramer rounding out the
foursome, may make a tour of
the United States, Australia and
Europe late this fall or early in
the winter.
Europeans Have Chance
If he nets the Aussies, Kramer
will have thrown the Davis Cup
race for next year wide open. Ex-
perienced European teams for the
first time since 1936 are given a'
strong chance of breaking the,
domination of American and Aus-
tralia in cup play.
Terms of the Trabert deal were
not disclosed. But Kramer said he
will get more than.the $75,000 that
Australia's Frank Sedgman did
when he forsook the amateurs to
play with Jack.

Although Michigan will almost
certainly lack the services of Ed

good physical shape. Dave Hill

Some say one week, others say
two weeks, and the Detroit Free
Press says one month.
Regardless of how long Ron
Kramer is out of action, his ab-
sence will be felt. The huge Wol-
verine end is one of those players
coaches dream about-except Ben-
nie Oosterbaan, who doesn't have
to dream.
Kramer, now nursing a painful
chest injury, earned a spot on vir-
Stually every pre-season all-Ameri-
can eleven. In Michigan's first
three games this year he has more
than earned these plaudits, doing
everything on the field but sell
Although gifted with extraor-
dinary athletic skillg, he is just an
"average" guy in most other re-
spects. He doesn't like to picture
himself as living in the silk cloud
reserved for most football heroes.
He is down-to-earth, pleasant, and
easy to talk to. He reads his press
notices but doesn't memorize
them. "I take each game as it
comes, and play to win," he says.
Born in Kansas
He was born in Girard, Kansas,
but moved to East Detroit when
still in three-cornered attire. He
has lived there ever since. He
starred for East Detroit High in
three sports -- football, basketball
and track-the same three he ex-
cels in at Michigan.
He is a psychology major in
LS&A and intends to enter pub-
lic relations in the future. What
about professional football? He
will wait and see what happens-
and there is Uncle Sam to con-
sider also.
He took up golf recently, and
now shoots in the low 90's. He

He dresses like the average male
on campus. Sport shirt and
khakis help adorn the 222 pounds

inch frame.
Few Chances to Date
He can't help laughing at the
outsider's rosy view of a football
player's 'glamorous' social life. He
admits that he has few chances
to date during the football sea-
son. Studying, attending classes
and practicing take up most of
his time during the week, and the
24 hours before game time are
spent in the team's "withdrawal

The 20-year-old junior likes ev-

no difference to him whether he
receives a pass, blocks, punts,
tackles or kicks off.
He rates Ohio State's Howard

Army star, as truly outstanding
players he has faced on the grid-
iron. He probably will appear on
some similar lists before his car-
