PRINCETON, N.J., July 3-
," '-The University of California
easily whipped Harvard and
Princeton today in the final heat
of the Olympic eight-oared row-
ing tryouts and earned the right
to represent the United States in
the 1948 Games at London.
The Golden Bears, upset win-
ners over Washington yesterday,
had things all their own way in
the final as they finished nearly a
length in front of Harvard.
Princeton was a badly beaten
third, trailing California by about
three lengths.
California's time for the 2000
meters, 13 yards less than a mile
and a quarter, was six minutes
A and two tenths of a second. Har-
vard was clocked in 6:03.3 and
Princeton in 6:13.6,

to claim a share of fifth place,
two strokes back at 210.
Harbert's company at that score
included serious Jim Turnesa of
Elmsford, N.Y., and the Tourna-
ment's hottest amateur, 24-year-
old Gene Dahlbender of Atlanta.
Turnesa had a third round 36-
36-72, and Dahlbender 36-34-7t1.

where they were tied with two
Chicagoans, Lloyd Mangrum and
Ky Laffoon.
While Harbert and Smith were
the only representatives of the
Michigan contingent with a
chance to grab the title, the State
still had such stars as Sam Byrd,
who fired a 70 for 214, Walter
Burkemo, who added 72 for 215
and Ed Furgol with '71 for 216,
running fairly close.
Charles Harmon, Jackson pro,

at the AA Track and field Championships here. Barten tur ned

MILWAUKEE, Wis., July 3--(P)-Barney Ewell, former Penn
State sprinter, snapped the winning streak of Harrison Dillard today
after 82 consecutive victories when he nosed out the Baldwin-Wallace
star in the finals of the 100 meter dash at the National Amateur
Athletic Union championships.
The two men were three yards ahead of the field. Dillard,
off to a slow start, made up ground furiously, but Ewell held a
foot margin. The time was :10.6.
William Porter of Northwestern, who appears to dive over the
hurdles with both arms outstretched in Front of him, administered
the second defeat of the day to '-

crew from Princeton University
won the Thames Challenge Cup
at the Henley Royal Regatta to-
day, writing a happy ending to a
trip that was conceived as a joke.
Princeton defeated the Royal
Air Force crew by two and three-
quarter lengths after a one-mile
550-yard battle down the placid
Thames River. The time was sev-
en minutes and 20 seconds.
Coxswain Dunked
Then, in the finest traditions of
varsity racing, the Princeton eight
tossed their coxswain, little Jack
Eiler of Schuylkill Haven, Pa., into
the river.
It was Eiler who joshed his crew
into challenging at Henley after
it captured the Eastern Intercol-
legiate 150-pound Championship.
"Henley is the Mecca of row-
ing," said Eiler. "During the sea-
son we talked about coming here
as a joke. After winning, the boys
took me seriously and, boy, am I
happy they did."

The Giants not only lost the
ball game to their arch-rivals
from Brooklyn, but lost the
services of Buddy Kerr, their
ace shortstop for an undeter-

ball thrown by catcher Roy
Campanella in a successful at-

B rough Cops'
Tenis Titles
LONDON, July 3.--(IP)-Led by
belting Louise Brough, America's
women tennis stars joined Aus-
tralia's men in sweeping four
Wimbledon Championships today
as the famous fortnight, dating
back from 1877, came to a close.
Downs Miss Hart
Miss Brough was a very busy
girl. Already Amreriean Singles
Champion, she added the All-Eng-
land Title to her collection by
beating Doris Hart of Miami, Fla.,
6-3, 8-6, in a hard-fought final,
and then lent a brilliant hand in
winning both the women's doubles
and mixed doubles.
The blond from Beverly Hills,
Calif., thus became the first wo-
man to capture all three Wimble-
don titles open to her since Alice
Marble did it in 1939.
There was little susp'ense about
the women's final. Miss Brough,
at the top of her game, broke Miss
Hart twice to run off the last five
straight games of the opening set.

Dillard in the finals of the 1101
meter high hurdles.
Dillard, who uses the orthodox
style with one arm ahead and one
trailing, closed hard but he was
a full two yards behind at the
finish. The time was :14.1, far
slower than Dillard's mark of
:13.6, which is up for world record
Previously Gil Dodds, pushed
by Roland Sink of the Univer-
sity of Southern California,
captured the 1,500 meter run in
Dodds, leading the field of 32
runners from the start, opened up
a lead of 40 yards with more than
a quarter mile to go, and then
faded as Sink came up with a
rush to challenge on the final
curve. The "Flying Parson," how-
ever, had enough kick left to come
home four yards in front.
Dodds' return to form raised
hopes of an American place in the
1.500 meters in the Olympic
Games at London, an event ex-
pected to be dominated by the
William Mack, Michigan State
freshman, was a close third,
with Gerald Karver, formerly of
Penn State and the defending
champion, sixth.
Paul Bienz of Tulane was third
in the 100 meter run, with Don
Anderson of California fourth.
Bill Mathis, the defending cham-
pion, pulled up fifth. He has been
bothered by a strained leg muscle.
Lloyd La Beach, the Panama sen-
sation, was disqualified after two
false starts.
Although defeate d, Dillard
proved conclusively he must be
reckoned with on the American
sprint team in addition to a place
in the high hurdles.
Herb McKenley of Jamaica,
who yesterday bettered the
world record for 400 meters by
one tenth if a second, running
his first heat in the almost un-
believable time of :45.9, cap-
tured the finals to defend his
title. He won by five yards over
Mal Whitfield of Ohio State
in the brilliant time of :46.3.

way. His times for the three full
quarters were :57, 2:01, and 3:07.,
