Special to The Daily
ANNAPOLIS, Md.-- A fabulous
Penn State gymnast named Ar-
mando Vega and a case of pneu-
monia ended Illinois' reign as
NCAA gymnastics champions yes-
terday here at the Naval Academy.
Vega, taking first or second in
every event he entered, personally
scored 57%/2 points for the victo-
rious Penn State squad.
Tonry Stays Home
At the same time, the Illini's
defending all-around titlist Don
Tonry was forced to remain in
Champaign because of a severe
case of pneumonia, leaving the Il-
linois load on the shoulders of
Grossfeld responded with 39
points, plus a first in the high
a. bar, but this wasn't enough to
match Vega's superhuman effort,
and Penn State walked off with
the title, outscoring the Illini,
87/hid these two powers were
Florida State with 561/2 points,
Iowa with 50, Army with 36 and
Michigan sixth with 32%.
Depend on Three
The Wolverines had to depend
on only three men for their points,
and these three did as well as
could be expected. Ed Gagnier was
the top Michigan man, scoring 23
points by himself. He was third in

Big Ten trampoline champion
Ed Cole came in a very close third
in the NCAA finals, behind Glenn
Wilson of Western Illinois and
Joe Tim of Iowa. Wilson exhibited
a beautiful routine, but both Tim
and Cole were close behind. 4Two
of the judges favored Cole, but the
others gave Wilson and Tim their

gan entry, did exceedingly well for

Michigan coach Newt Loken
stated that all of the Michigan
men did very well considering the
circumstances. He saidethatit
was "quite depressing to enter a
meet with three men when three
of the schools had ten or eleven-
man teams present."
Michigan placed fifth last year,
and had hoped to improve on that
this season, but the field was
much stronger, and the breaks
didn't go Michigan's way.
CLOSE DECISION - Wolverine trampolinist Ed Cole, reigning
Big Ten champ, ended up third in the NCAA finals, after giving
Glenn Wilson of Western Illinois and Joe Tim of Iowa a close
race. Their exhibitions were so close that each received first-place
nods from some of the judges.

The University of Michigan
swimming team took first place in
a triangular meet yesterday aft-
ernoon at the Varsity Pool against
the Indianapolis Athletic Club and
the Etobocoke A. C. of Toronto.
Michigan chalked up 67 points
to 62 for Indianapolis A.C. and 20
for the Toronto team in its warm-
up for the NCAA finals next week.
Three pool records were broken
in the meet. Michigan's Dick Han-
ley swam a sensational 4:32.8 in
the 440-yd. freestyle to smash the
former pool record of 4:41.2 that
he set earlier in the year. Hanley's
time was about four seconds short
of the world mark.
But two swimmers from the IAC,
Frank McKinney and Bill Barton,
stole the spotlight froih Hanley.
Barton upset Cy Hopkins in the
200-yd. butterfly and established
a new pool record of 2:12, erasing
Hopkins' old mark of 2:12.1 which
had stood as the American record
earlier this year.

College Ice Probe Sought
In 3:59 Flat
MELBOURNE, Australia (-
Mervin Lincoln, a 24-year-old
schoolteacher from Stawell, Vic-
toria, became the 11th member of
the growing four-minute mile fra-
ternity today with a 3:59 clock-
ing in a special meet at Melbourne
The third Aussie to break the
barrier, Lincoln was barely winded
after the race and said he thought
he could have done even better
except for a misunderstanding.
"I thought the announcement
at three quarters of a mile was
3:03" (actually the call was three
minutesflat),he said. "I decided
to run on for the last lap and had
I heard the time correctly, I might
have done better."
His coach. Austrian-born Franz
Stampfel, who coached England's
Roger Bannister to the first four-
minute mile in 1954, commented:
"I am more than happy with
this result. This boy next season
will do a 3:55 mile."
Jack Kramer, former king of the
professional tennis circles, brings
four of the top players of the
game into Ann Arbor Tuesday.
Pancho Gonzales, who present-
ly ranks as the top player in pro-
fessional tennis, is the top bill on
Kramer's tour, which will play in
the Ann Arbor High School gym-
Gonzales will be pitted against
Ken Rosewall, while the other two
members of the tour, Pancho Se-
gura and Dinny Pails, will oppose
each other in the second battle.
In doubles competition, Gon-
zales and Segura will take on
Pails and Rosewall, the Australian
ex-Davis Cup stars.
During the time that Kramer
was tops in the professional game,
he consistently defeated Bobby
Riggs, Gonzales, Segura and
Frank Sedgman. He remains the
greatest all-around performer of
the modern tennis era.
Kramer, Gonzales and Segura
are the only players who have been
able to remain tops in the profes-
sional circuits, having proved too
much for such stars as Tony Tra-
bert, Sedgman and Ken McGre-

BOSTON (R) - The Americanv
College Hockey Coaches Assn. yes-
terday recommended a thorough
investigation into the eligibility
of all players and the transfer of
next year's NCAA Tournament
from Colorado Springs to Minne-
The eligibility question caused
a stormy session. It was brought
to light recently when three Uni-
versity of Michigan team members
were declared ineligible on the
eve of the tournament.
The three were banned for sign-
ing contracts in Canada and their
loss played a part in Michigan's
13-6 title game loss to Colorado
Charges have been hurled,
meanwhile, that the Western
League of the NCAA is heavily
manned with Canadian "import"
The body of the convention rec-
ommended on the touchy subject
that a committee of coaches be
formed to check into eligibility in
the individual collleges.
The group also recommended
moving the tournament location
from Colorado Springs, where it
has been held 10 successive years,
to Minneapolis for the 1958 cham-

If the rules committee agrees,

KANSAS CITY (AP) - Two free

tested game and gave the North

another charity shot to edge Kan-
sas ahead, 53-52.
North Carolina called time out

tegy paid off as King fouled Quigg

Kansas had a one-shot chance
