(Another in a series)
Michigan's first two football
games will be crucial.
The Wolverines must open
against the powerful Spartans of
Michigan State, and the follow-
ing week must travel to Palo Alto,
California to oppose the Stanford
Indians.
MICHIGAN STATE is current-

game winning streak and was con-
sidered by many to be the best
team in the land in 1951. Last
year the Spartans buried a game
but under-manned Michigan out-
fit under a four touchdown ava-
lanche, 25-0.
The Spartans got a big break
last year by playing an opening
game at Lansing with 'Oregon
state, one week before they
came down to Ann Arbor. The
value of having a game under
their belts can not be over-
stressed in the case of the Spar-
tans of last year. The squad
from East Lansing made its
mistakes against the coast
team, and had all the "kinks"
ironed out when they played
Michigan.
This year however, the Spartans
and Wolverines will both be play-
ing their opening games against
each other. This will present a
great advantage to Michigan
which the Wolverines did not en-
joy last year.
* s "
MICHIGAN also has a score to
settle with Stanford. The Indians
became the first team from the
West Coast to defeat a Michi-
gan squadswhen they turned in a
23-13 victory here at Ann Arbor.
Just to prove that their win
was no upset, the Indians went
on to capture the Pacific Coast
Conference Championship.
Up at East Lansing Coach Big-
gie Munn has twenty-six return-
ing lettermen from which to fa-
shion his 1952 edition of the
Green and White. The main prob-
lem will be the replacing of the
graduated Al Dorow. The Spar-
tans also need replacements all
along the offensive line. Gradua-
tion of line-backer Bill Hughes
will leave a large hole in the de-
fensive set-up unless Munn can
come up with adequate talent at
that vital position. The Spartans
will enter Big Ten football compe-
tition beginning with the 1953
season.

COACH CHUCK TAYLOR of
Stanford faces the laborious task
of filling the gaps left by the
graduation of twenty-five letter-
men. Among the departed Stan-
ford stars are All-American end
Bill McColl, Gary Kerkorian, Har-
ry Hugasian, Jack Rye, Eric
Southwood and Bob Meyers.
Taylor will probably build the
Stanford running attack around

decathalon star who also plays
football.
Stanford will have played two
games before Michigan meets
them in their home stadium and
accordingly the Indians will have
that much more experience play-
ing as a team. The stadium at
Palo Alto seats 90,000 and is sec-
ond in size only to the Michigan
stadium. A sellout is almost as-
sured judging from a heavy early
sale of tickets.

WHAT the Wolverines do
against these two tough early sea-

tion of what the team will do in
the rugged Western Conference
race.
Bob Mathias
Leads Field
In Decathlon
HELSINKI - (P) - Defending
Champion Bob Mathias and two
other versatile Americans led the
field yesterday at the half-way
mark in the two day Decathlon
contest which decides the best all-
around athlete of the Olympic
games.
* * *
MILTON CAMPBELL, 18-year-
old high school boy from Plain-
field, N.J., was second with 4,111
points and Floyd Simmons of Los
Angeles was third with 3,924.
Behind the three Americans
came Ignace Heinricg, France,
fourth with 3,855 points, Goran
Widenfelt, Swedon, fifth with
3,740, and Kell Tannander,
Sweden, sixth with 2,989.
It looked at this stage as though
no one could catch Mathias in
Saturday's final five events.
*$ * *
THE HUSKY Stanford student
raced, jumped and heaved through
a gruelling nine-hour test of speed,
strength and endurance at a pace
which no other athlete has ever
equalled.
And some of his best events are
yet to come.
Mathias began his busy day
at 10 a.m. with the best clocking
in the 100 meters sprint 10.9
seconds. Then he broadjumped
6.98 meters (22 feet 10.80 inches)
before lunch, finishing sixth in
this event.
In the afternoon, he put the
shot 15.30 meters (50 feet 2.37
inches) to top the entire Decath-
lon field. He high jumped 1.90
meters (6 feet 2.81 inches), which
was third best among the competi-
tors and the highest he ever
leaped.
Then, at 8:30 p.m., tired from
more than eight hours of com-
petition and chilled by a cold
wind, Mathias ran 400 meters
in the classy time of 50.2 sec-
onds, which no one of his com-
petitors could even approach.
Mathias still was 27 points be-
hind his first day's pace of the
Olympic tryouts when he estab-
lished his world record of 7,825
points for all 10 events. But that
difference could be made up Sat-
urday, if he gets favorable weather.

ANOTHER RECORD BROKEN - But this time it's his own.
Adhemar Ferreira De Silva of Brazil leaped 53 feet 2.59 inches in
the Olympic hop, step and jump to break his own world mark
and a 16 year old Olympic mark.
Kentucky's Sport Future
In Hands ofConference

By KYLE VANCE

Im

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.-(P-Ken-
tucky's athletic future was placed
in the hands of the Southeastern
Conference Executive Committee
last night.
The six-member group was call-
ed together to discuss a report of
Commissioner Bernie Moore on
his investigation of the school's
sports program, which was brand-
ed "highly systematized and com-
mercialized" by a New York judge.
THERE WERE indications the
University will be made to pay a
penalty for letting its program get
out of hand and produce the re-
cent scandal involving six of its
basketball players.
This stemmed from the consid-
eration that school officials were
called to appear before the execu-
tive committee and answer charges
contained in Moore's report:

- Playing Saturday --
"AT SWORDS

* WALTER BRENNAN

"THE FIGHTER"
and
"THE CAPTIVE
CITY"

He said a statement will be is-
sued after today's meeting.
The depth of his finds thus re-
mained a secret and there was no
indication of the nature of the
penalty, if any, that Kentucky
might face.
CONFERENCE rules list just
one specific action that may be
taken against a member school.
It involves violation of eligibility
rules and sets a fine of $1,000 for
each violation.
Other punishments are broad-.
ly prescribed and would give
the Executive Committee, if it
found a school guilty of an ex-
treme infraction, freedom to ex-
pell a school from the confer-
ence.
Kentucky's athletic troubles
started when three star members
of its great basketball teams of
the late 40's admitted taking gam-
blers' money to go over or under
point spreads on betting sheets.

kNot including last night's games)

HELSINKI-UP)--Horace Ashen-
felter won the 3,000-meter steeple-
chase yesterday for the most un-
expected and spectacular victory
the United States has scored in
the thrill-packed, record-busting
Olympic Games.
The 29-xear-old special agent of
the Federal Bureau of Investiga-
tion from Penn State College did
it by running the heart 'out of
Vlacimir Kazantsev, of Russia, on
the last lap.
* * *
ASHENFELTER was followed on
the yictory platform and on the
Olympic record-breaking list by
Jamaica's George Rhoden, a stu-
dent at Morgan State College in
Baltimore.
Ashenfelter's time of 8:45.4
was the fastest the steeplechase
has ever been run. Rhoden won
the 400-meter run from his
teammate, Herb McKenley, in
45.9 seconds.
A U. S. Army master sergeant,
Huelet Benner, won the pistol-
shooting gold medal with a score
of 553 out of a possible 600, Rus-
sia's Ivan Udodov won the ban-
tamweight weightlifting cham-
pionship, and Hungary won the
team chimpionship in the modern
pentathlon in which Lars Hall, of
Sweden, was the individual winner.
* * *
THE 400 METERS was a scorch-
er. The field undoubtedly was the
best ever.
It was headed by Rhoden
holder of the world 400-meter
record at :45.8; McKenley, hold-
er of the world 440-yard record
at :46.0, and Arthur Wint, third
Jamaican, the defending Olym-
pic champion.
Then there was gallant Mal
Whitfield, of Columbus, o., third
in the 400 at London and winner
of the 800 both there and here. He
had his heart set on an Olympic
double.
The final times were Rhoden
:45.9, McKenley :45.9, Ollie Mat-
son :46.8, Karl Haase :47.0, and
Whitfield :47.1.
SLIM, PRETTY Marjorie Jack-
son, of Australia, ran the women's
200 meters semi-finals in :23.4,
Giants Defeat
Cininnati, 3=1
NEW YORK-(k')-Jim Hearn
pitched and batted the New York
Giants to a 3-1 victory over the
Cincinnati Reds in the opener of
a four-game series ,yesterday.
Hearn, in booting his season's
record to 11-3 held the Reds to
four singles. The big Atlantan also
led the New York attack, slamming
a home run with catcher Sal Yvars
on base after two were out in the
fifth inning. It was the Giants'
fourth straight victory.
Hearn's homer, his second of
the year, broke a scoreless tie.
The Giants went on to tally an-
other run before the side was re-
tired when Davey Williams sing-
led and came in on Alvin Dark's
double.
The Reds got their lone run in
the eighth on singles by Eddie Pel-
lagrini and Roy McMillan and
pinch-hitter Hank Edwards' long
fly to center,
Ken Raffensberger took the loss.

bettering the world mark of :23.6
set by Stella Walsh, of Poland and
the U.S.A., in 1935.
Russia continued to pick up
points in side arenas to run its
total for the entire Games to
348 against 250 for the United
States. Hungary is a distant
third with 110, Sweden fourth
with 85x/ and Germany and
Switzerland tied for fifth with
58.
Six events remain and the
United States could win two or
three of these.
Never have track and field rec-
ords been treated with such dis-
dain. In all, 21 Olympic records
have been exceeded and five world
records lowered by the men and
girls.

Upset
New Hoop
Coach Will
Be Named
The University of Michigan
will have a new basketball
coach today.
Announcement of the new
appointee is expected to come
this morning from H. O. (Fritz)
Crisler, the University's direc-
tor of athletics.
Michigan has been without a
basketball coach since early
last month when Ernie McCoy
resigned to accept a position
as athletic director for Penn
State.
McCoy was also assistant
athletic director and chief foot-
ball scout for the Wolverines.

The question
would Kentucky
be called from
Birmingham to
athletic house is

arose: "Why
administrators
Lexington to
be told their
in order?"

Dr. H. L. Donovan, university
president, and Dean A. D. Kirwan,
faculty advisor on athletics, were
en route to Birmingham by train
tonight to appear before the com-
mittee tomorrow.
- -* *
MOORE declined to discuss his
investigation other than to reveal
it covered all sports, and not just
basketball. He said he spent three
days in Lexington late in May
and devoted another three weeks
to the probe upon returning to his
Birmingham office.
