WOMEN IN SPOR TS:
SMiss Olsen Realizes Li felong
Ambtion in Olympic Berth

By BEVERLY BUSSEY
(Speciai to Th'Pe Daily)
DETROIT, Mich., July 9--Zoe
Ann Olsen, a pert blond with a
good pair of legs to spring and a
ready smile for everyone, stood
at the top of the pedestal to re-
ceive her certifica te---good for a
round trip to London's Olympic
Games and her earthen idea of
"Heaven."'
The triumph was a great trib-
ute to her parents. The 17 year-
old senior" at Oakland tig h
Sehool had reacied the gateway
to the childhood ambition that
has been the guiding factor
throughout her life. Since she
was seven, her dad, Art Olsen,
has coached the American 3-
meter board champion.
She nearly turned out to be a
"nothing," when at the age of
three, Zoe Ann leaped from the
roof of her home. She missed the
cement pavement uy inches, land-
ing in an ash pile to cushion the

fall. Mrs. Olsen, a dancing teach-
er, had made daughter Zoe Ann
repeat a silly little tap dance for
the rest of the class, and because
she refused to do so, Zoe~ Ann
was banished to her room from
where she' made her almost fatal
plunge.
After the Olympic Games are
history, she intends to come home
and learn a "good game of tennis
. go to Stanford for a couple
of years, and then raise football,
players."
For Pat Healy of Watchung
'iake, New Jersey, it was a very
busy day. Pat was a nurse in
the Army during the last war,
but all her experience under fire
was nothing compared to the
siege she withstood in gaining
the sixth and final place on the
100 meter free style Olympic
team.
In the morning preliminaries,
she tied Alice DeGroot with a
1.11.1 clocking for the last qual-
ifying place in the final race.

COLUMBUS, O., July 9-(I/P)-
Big Stewart (Skip) Alexdnder,
bachelor from Lexington, N.C.,
fired his way into a two-stroke
lead over a classy field today in
the opening round of the $10,000
Third Annual Columbus Open,
with a scintillating 32-32-64.
Two strokes back, with 66
strokes each, were Lloyd Man-
gum, the mustachioed former
National Open Champion from
Chicago, and George Schoux, 29-
year-old star from Mamaroneck,
N.Y.
Bobby Locke, the 1947 victor in
this 72-hole fixture-and the pre-
tourney .favorite to win again -
wound up five strokes off the pace
with 34-35-69 after a couple of
arguments with amateur photog-
raphers who insisted on snapping
cameras as he putted.
That left the South African
Champion deadlocked with five
others in ninlth place as the 100
starters, made up of 81 profession-
als and 19 arnateurs.
The field, down to 98 after two
withdrawals, plays another 18
holes tomorrow, after which the
low 60 and ties will battle down
Sunday's 3G-hole stretch.

(Special to The Daily)
BRENNAN POOLS, Rouge Park,
Detroit, July 9-Youthful Matt
Mann III barely missed qualifying
for a 400-meter freestyle berth to-
day as his desperate spurt in the
last lap of the 400-meter final of
the 1948 Olympics Trials failed to
catch Bill Heusner of Northwest-
ern who nailed down the third
Olympic berth.
Jimmy McLane, outstanding
prep star from New Haven Swim
Club, edged Hawaii's great
swimmer, Bill Smith, to capture
the number one slot in the 400-
meter event with a sizzling
4:45.6 clocking, while Smith's
time was 4:30.4. Heusner, who
captured the NCAA 1,500-meter
title and thea Western Confer-
ence 400-yard championship,
continued the mid-western dom-
ination in the men's events as
he took the third berth for the
coveted trip to London.
Mann will get another chance
for an Olympic berth when he
tries to capture his specialty, the
1,500-meter free style, which takes
place Sunday in the morning ses-
sion.
Ann Curtis of Crystal Plunge
provedl that her ranking as the
best woman swimmer in the cou-
try was no mistake as she easily
added the 100-meter freestyle to
her list of titles. She was clocked
in 1:07.7 ahead of Marie Corriden
of Women's Swimming Associa-
tion of New York who qualified
for the Olympics with a 1:08.2.
Brenda Helser of Los Angeles AC
was third with 1:08.6 to cop an
Olympic berth, while three other
girls qualified as members of the
women's 400-meter freestyle relay
team.
Thelma Kalama of Hawaii
paced these qualifiers with a
1:08.8 clocking, good enough for
fourth place in the 100-meters,
while Jackie Lavine of the Town
Club of Chicago and Pat Healy
of Watchung Lake Swim Club
rounded out the Olympic quali-
fiers with clockings of 1:10.0
and 1:10.1.
Zoe Ann Olsen, stellar young
diver fron the Athens AC in Cali-
fornia, continued her dominance
of the nation's women divers as
she easily captured the first berth
in the 3-meter diving finals. Her
point total of 117.39 easily with-
stood the threat of Vicki Draves of
Los Angeles AC, who was second
with 111.14, while Pat Elsener of
Crystal Plunge completed the West
Coast dominance in the diving as
she nailed down the third Olympic
berth.
In the finals of the 3-meter
men's diving, the Ohio State duo
of Bruce Harlan and Miller An-
derson f inished one-two as was
expected, but the margin of dif'-
ference between the two seems
to get smaller each time they
face each other. This time it was
Harlan who edged his older
teammate by of a point, Hlar-
lan garnered 159.19 points to
Anderson's 158.54.
Bob Sohl, Wolverine co-captain,
became the second member of
Matt Mann's entry to qualify for
the finals as he captured his 200-
meter breaststroke heat with a
good timing of 2:45.4, which
placed him third among the quali-
fiers behind the brilliant Joe Ver-
deur and Keith Carter of Purdue.
Verdeur, swimming for the
Brighton Swim Club, paced the
qualifiers with a good clocking

of 2:43.1, but the tall Boiler-
maker, Carter, who has been one
of the standouts of the trials
was right behind him with a
2:44.4.
Other threats to Sohl's chances
for an Olympic berth are Bill
Schmidt, who edged the Wolverine
ace fo second place in the AAU's
and Jose Balmores, of Hawaii.

By BUD WEIDENTHAL
(Special to The Daily)
EVANSTON, Ill., July 9 -Mich-
igan's two Olympic hopes, Herb
Barten and Charlie Fonville took a
big step towards London and the
Summer's games here this eve-
ning, when they both qualified
easily in their respective events in
the final trials at Northwestern's
Dyche Stadium.
The Big question mark of the
Wolverine duet was Fonville
who had been ailing for the
past several weeks with a
strained muscle in his back.
The Maize and Blue ace gave
every indication that he was still
not in top shape when he fouled
twice in three tries but was able
to take a third in the qualifier as
a result of his first toss which went
53 feet 1% inches. It easily put
him in the group of six who will
compete tomorrow for the three
coveted spots on the Olympic
team.
The 'shot qualifier was won by
Francis.Delaney of the San Fran-
cisco Athletic Club.
Fonville was tied for third posi-
tion in the qualifier by Rollin
Pratlier of Kansas State.
In the trials of the 800 meter
run, Michigan's Captain Herb
Barten ran a race familiar to all
his followers. Running fourth
until'the final turn he turned on
his famous kick to pass the field
and win his heat easily in the
creditable time of 1:52.9. Hle
passed Southern California's
Bob Chambers in the last hun-
dred yards to break the tape
with three yards to spare.
NYU's famed Reginald Pearman
was third, ten yards back. Ohio
State's Bill Clifford who was run-
nling last tripped and fell on the
final lap.
In the second heat of the 800-
meter qualifier with the first three
places to go tomorrow in the fin-
als, Mal Whitfield formerly of
Ohio State and now running for
the Army Air Forces staged a ter-
rific duel with Michigan State's
Jack Dianetti, and finally beat
him out by a hair in 1:52.8. The
Spartan ace was clocked in the
same time but was awarded sec-
ond place.
The 800 shaped up to be the
probable thriller of tomorrow's
finals. It looked now like a four
way race for the three payoffs
positions between Pearman,
Barten, Dianetti, and Whitfield.
One of the surprises of the eve-
ning was the performance of still
another Michigan man, a summer
session student, Clarence Robin-
son, who is a regular student at
Utah's Brigham Young University.
The lahky speedster, with a tre-
mendous stride, finished third in
the finals of the 5,000 meter run
to become a member of the Olym-
pic team.
Of the 35 that started the
gruelling 3 mile grind only five
finished. Curtis Stone of Phila-
delphia won in 24 minutes, 40.7
seconds. The carnival which
was a streamlined twilight af-
fair began at 6:00 p.m. and was
witnessed under clear skies by
20,000 pleased fans. It was full
of many of the expected thrills,
this being the greatest and most
important of American track
and field meets.
Barney Ewell of Lancaster Pa.,
streaked to a world's record equal-
ling victory in the 100 meter dash
in the amazing time of 10.2 sec-
onds. He was aided by a 10 mile
an hour tail wind, however.
Mel Patten of Southern Cali-
fornia, billed as the "world's fast-
est human"' was second and Har-
rison Dillard, the Baldwin Wallace
flash was third.
