Jecko Tops
Ivy League
Champions
By DICK MINTZ
Yale, perennial Eastern swim
power, looms as the chief chal-
lenger to Michigan's NCAA title
hopes, in the championship meet
to be held this weekend at the
Varsity Pool.
Yale captured eight of sixteen
first places in the Eastern Inter-
collegiates two weeks ago to win
the Eastern crown and climax an
undefeated season .
The Eli's, however, don't have
the depth they had last year when
they placed second to Michigan
for the NCAA title, at Chapel Hill,
N.C.
Stars Graduate
4 Yale lost six of its top swim-
mers through graduation, includ-
ing world-record holder Rex Aub-
,reybut have a powerful nucleus
this year in Tim Jecko, Roger
Anderson and Joe Koletsky.
Jecko is Yale's only NCAA in-
dividual title holder. He captured
three gold medals last year in the
100 and 200-yd. butterfly stroke
and the 200-yd. individual medley.
At the Easterns he repeated the
trick, but will face his most severe
test this weekend when he meets
Michigan's own sensational soph-
omore, Tony Tashnick, for the
first time.
In the Big Ten Championships,
Tashnick won the 100-yd butter-
fly in 54.5 seconds, the 200-yd.
butterfly in 2:06 and the 200-yd'
individual medley in 2:08.6. In the
corresponding events at the East-
ern championships, Jecko was
timed in 55.1 seconds, 2:06.4 and
2:10.5.
Wins Three Events
Anderson, Yale's freestyle star,
turned in a triple victory at the
Easterns in the 100, 220 and 440
yd. events and Joe Koletsky paced
the way in the 200-yd. breast
stroke and placed second in thex
100. Eli Coach, Bob Kiputh is ex-i
peted to have Anderson anchor
the leg of the 400-yd. freestyle re-
lay and pass up the 100-yd. event.
Yale is expected to be strong
in the sprint events. Jecko and
Anderson should receive a lot of
* help from Pete Lusk and Russ
Hibbard. Other sprinters include
Captain Peter Taft, Bob Perry
and Charles Bronston.
The Yale teams have not lost
a dual meet since 1945 when they
were defeated by Army. Since that
time the team has gone on to
compile the existing record of 156
straight.

ming Tournament being held

For Big Ten Gym Crown

STANLEY CUP:
Canadiens,
Rangers
Win First
By The Associated Press
MONTREAL-Scoring a goal in
each period, Phil Goyette led the
Montreal Canadiens to an easy 8-1
victory over the Detroit Red Wings
in the first game of their Stanley
Cup semifinals.
Maurice (Rocket) Richard
scored two goals to start the
Canadiens on a five-goal spree in
the first period while Goyette,
rookie center who scored only nine
goals all season, notched his hat
trick.
Veteran Dave Creighton scored
twice and assisted on one of three
first period goals that carried the
New York Rangers to a 5-3 victory
over the Boston Bruins last night
in the exciting opener of their
semi-final series for the National
Hockey League Stanley Cup in
Madison Square Garden.
The Ranger triumph, however,
was tempered by a triple fracture
of the jaw suffered by their cap-
tain, Red Sullivan.
Larry Popein and Andy Heben-
ton picked up the Ranger's other
goals while Fleming Mackell, Jer-
ry Toppazzini and Bronco Horvath
contributed three markers for
Boston.

Third Victory
DETROIT () - The St. Louis
Hawks turned in a blazing first
half, coasted the rest of the way,
and gained a 145-101 victory over
the Detroit Pistons last night in
Olympia Stadium.
The triumph gave the Hawks a
3-1 advantage in the western divi-
sion finals of the NBA playoffs.

'Sugar Ray' Finished? Ask Basilio;
Robinson Winner on Split Decision,

Exhibition
Baseball

CHICAGO () -- Incredible
Sugar Ray Robinson won the
world middleweight title for the
fifth time last night as he closed
Champion Carmen Basilio's left
eye in the sixth round and took
a split 15-round decision in a bru-
tal fight before a capacity crowd
in Chicago Stadium.
Basilio, making his first defense
since he dethroned Robinson in
New York last Sept. 23, was a
gargoyle-like f i g h t i n g gnome
peering out of one eye for the last
10 rounds of the bitter scrap.
Takes Crown Again
Robinson, who now has recap-
tured the 160-pound crown four
times, tried desperately to knock

out his courageous little foe, but
although he jolted him time after
time, he never floored him.
Summoning tremendous cour-
age, Basilio even stunned Sugar
Ray several times in the fierce
battle.
Both judges voted for Robinson
under the five point must system
by decisive margins. But Referee
Frank Sikora called it for Basilio,
69-66.
Judges for Robinson
Judge John Bray went for Rob-
inson, 71-64, and Judge Frank
McAdams gave it to Sugar Ray,
72-64.
The turning point came late in

the fifth round when Robinson
scored a jolting left to the jaw and
then crashed a right high to the
head which started closing Ba-
silio's left eye.
By the time the sixth round
started, there was scarcely a slit
in the champion's puffed left eye.
The attendance was 17,976, with
a gross gate of $351,995 and a net
of $278,108. Each fighter collected
30 per cent of this, plus an esti-
mated $300,000 from closed cir-
cuit TV and $30,000 from the na-
tional radio broadcast.

Four teams - Iowa, Illinois,
Michigan and Michigan State are
touted to battle for the Big Ten
gymnastics crown this weekend in
Iowa City.
Iowa, who defeated defending
champign Illinois earlier this sea-
son, -is rated a slight meet favor-
ite. All-around Hawkeye perform-
ers, Sven Carlsson and Ted Se-
gura carry the heavy load for
Iowa.
Backing up the Hawkeye scor-
ing duo are Bill Buck, undefeated
in side horse competition and a
well-balanced trampoline team of
John McCurdy, Tim Joe and Bob
Justice.
Illini Follow Iowa
Illinois, paced by NCAA tital-
ists Abe Grossfeld, John Davis and
Frank Hailand, remains the
strongest competition for Iowa.
Grossfeld plans a repeat perform-
ance as high bar and free exer-
cise medalist with Hailand seek-
ing his second Conference tumb-
ling title. Davis, NCAA side-horse

champion, is also a heavy favorite
for honors.
Michigan, will have to rely
heavily on Big Ten trampoline
champion Ed Cole to repeat his
1957 performance with efforts by
Nino Marion, Al Stall, Barry Fein-
berg and Wolf Dozauer on the
high bar and parallel bars now
that Ed Gagnier is out of the
meet.
Michigan State will bid for a
spot in the top four places aided
by Stan Tarshis, top performer
on the high bars, Cal Girard, who
shines on the parallel bars, and
Tom Werthman.
Tourney Bound
KENT, Ohio (P)-Michigan will
play in the first Midwestern Invi-
tational basketball tourney to be
held at Kent State next Dec. 5
and 6, Athletic Director Carl
Erickson announced yesterday.
Besides the host team and the
Wolverines others in the tourney
will be Tennessee and Wyoming.

WHAT TO WEAR ON THE SATELLITE

SCENE: It is almost zero hour
at Los Bismuth. On stage are
Capt. Carruthers, the man in
charge of the launching of the
satellite, and Manfred Faustus
Sport, the man who will ride
the satellite.
Carr: Well, Sport, this is it.
Sport: Real gas, Cap. I'm
almost flying already. How
do I look?
Carr: You could wear cat-gut
and lemon-peels, and who
would be the wiser?
Sport: Wake up, Cap. What
about that crowd at Mt. Palo-
mar with that big, spooky
telescope? Got to look spiffy
for them.
Carr: That shirt's a beaut.
But, where's the rest of your
luggage? '.
Sport: Who needs more? This
shirt is a Van Heusen Vantage

shirt. It's one of those all
cotton. drip-dry numbers that
never needs ironing.
Carr: What a discovery! But
how will you wash it up there?
Sport: In the rain, man, in the
rain.
Carr: And how will you dry it?
Sport: In the sun, man, in
the sun.
Carr: Well, it's zero minus
one. Sport, you'll be gone for-
ever. (SOUND OF WHOOSH-
ING). He's gone.
EPILOGUE: The scene is the
observatory at Mt. Palomar.
Scientist: Man, he's real gone.
Just look at that Van Heusen
Vantage shirt.
Yes, in outer space, or right
here on terra firma, no drip-dry
discovery ranks with Van
Heusen Vantage shirts. The
tariff? Only $5.

STUDY BUILDING PROGRAM:
Officials Oppose Field House Plan

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the final
article of a three article series deal-
ing with the University athletic plant.
Today's article discusses the project-
ed athletic building plan.)
By CARL RISEMAN
What is the projected plan for
the athletic building program?
As previously stated, there is a
demand for a new Field House
and additions to the I-M building.
What does the Board in Control
of Intercollegiate Athletics plan
to do about these needs?
Funds Exhausted
Athletic Director H.O. "Fritz"
Crisler, who is Chairman of the
Board in Control of Intercollegiate
Athletics said, "Any immediate
plans for the expansion of the
athletic plant will have to be
tabled due to lack of funds."
"The first phase of our build-
ing program which focused on the
expansion and improvement of
our intercollegiate athletic used
up existing funds."
What does the Board think

about the need for a new Field
House?
"The present Field House seats
approximately 9500 students," re-
marked Crisler. "During the last
season the Field House was not
once filled to capacity."
If the present Field House can
not be filled, he went on to say,
the need for a new one cannot be
justified before the need for more
recreational facilities are met.
Opposes New Facility
Crisler cannot see the point of
constructing a new field house,
costing approximately $5,000,000,
for spectator basketball only. Any
projected field house would in-
clude some intramural facilities
and might also be used for con-
certs or for Commencement, he
explained.
At the present time there are
no definite plans for a field house
although a new basketball floor
will be installed either next year
or the year after.

"The expansion and Improve-
ment of recreational facilities was
the second part of our building
program and will be resumed as
soon as possible," stated Crisler.
"Most of our plans will be cen-
tered around North Campus and
are as yet in the drawing board
stage."
A move to North Campus will
include the buying of land for
playing fields and other recrea-
tional facilities such as the possi-
bility of a new golf course. Such
a move it is hoped will offset the
pressure of the influx of new stu-
dents expected in the next few
years.
It has been said that the I-M
building is overcrowded. However,
there are no definite plans for
additions, since the present intra-
mural facilities rank among the
top in collegiate circles.
