McEwen To Quit Race

America

To Send Powerful Team

To Europe; M' Men Fail to Win

HAMILTON, Ont.-(P)-Michi-
gan's Don McEwen was forced to
drop out of the 5,000 meters race
yesterday in the Canadian track
and field championships.
Rich Ferguson, his nemesis from
the University of Iowa, won the
race and set a new Canadian
record.
FERGUSON was timed in
15:18.0. The old Canadian mark
of 15:23.6 was made by Cliff Sal-
mon of Vancouver in 1948.
McEwen twice faltered be-
cause of stomach pains and was
on the verge of dropping out

LOS ANGELES--(P)-The Uni-
versity of Michigan failed to place
a single man on the American
Olympic track team as final try-
outs ended yesterday.
Mal Whitfield, proud defending
Olympic champion at 800 meters,
won the 400 meter final tryout
yesterday in the brilliant time of
1:46.9 to spark a powerful Ameri-
can team in its quest for world
honors in the games this summer
in Helsinki.
WHITFIELD, who won the 800
meters yesterday in 1:48.6, thus
joined Curtis Stone as the only
double winners on the American
squad. Stone, the former Penn
State runner, won the 5,000 and
10,000 meter runs.
Another Olympic champion
from the 1948 games joined
Whitfield on the team-Harri-
son Dillard, the veteran Bald-
win-Wallace flash. But this
time Dillard qualified in his
specialty, the high hurdles, an
event in which he failed in
1948. That was the year, how-
ever, when he surprised by win-
ning the Olympic 100 meters.
A crowd of 22,795 cheered on
the stars in their assault on meet
and American records.
In the two days of competi-
tion in 18 events, 13 new meet
records were set-which means
that this team excels the best
all previous teams did in all but
five events.
Except in the 400 and 100-meter
dashes, only the first three finish-
ers in each event were taken.
THE MEET produced more than
its usual share of heartbreaks.
In the high hurdles alone Dick
Attlesey, the world record holder,
missed the team when he finished
last in a trial heat due to a strain-
ed leg muscle, and Craig Dixon of
U.C.L.A. fell on the next to the
last hurdle in the finals.
Dillard, who failed to finish
the 1948 hurdle tryouts, was in
beautiful form today as he won
in :14.0 with Jack Davis second
and Art Barnard third.
Both are University of South-
ern California products, but Bar-
Ud

i

nard now represents the Navy.
Andry Stanfield, formerly of
Seton Hall, won the 200 meter
final in :20.6 around one turn, a
new American record. The old
mark was :20.7 by Jesse Owens.
* * *
HORACE Ashenfelter, formerly
of Penn State, won the 3,000 meter
steeplechase in 9:06.4, another new
American record. His brother, Wil-
liam, was at his heels and the
veteran Browning Ross took third.
In the discus, Sim Iness, the
giant Southern California stu-
dent, bested the world record
holder, Fortune Gordien, with a
mighty toss of 174-101. Gor-
dien, of L.A.A.C., had 173-5/,
and third place went to Jim Dil-
lion, of Auburn, with 173-2.
With West Santee, the brilliant
Kansas distance runner, electing
to qualify in the 5,000 meters yes-
terday-in which he was beaten by
the veteran Curtis Stone - the
1,500 meters -today was a wide
open race.
On the final backstretch seven
men were tightly bunched. Bob
McMillen, of Occidental, the Col-
legiate Champion, burst through
on the pole and went on to win by
10 yards over Warren Druetzler
of the Army in the excellent time
of 3:49.3. Javier Montes of San
Antonio was third.

PHILADELPHIA - (M) - Jovial
Steve O'Neill-"a little excited by
it all"-last night took over as
manager of the National League's
Philadelphia Phillies with a prom-
ise that "everything's going to
look the same around here for a
little while anyway."
O'Neill replaced genial (and al-
so jovial) Eddie Sawyer who was
"moved up" as assistant to Phil
owner Bob Carpenter "for the good
of the club."
WIMBLEDON, England-OP)-
A team of teen-agers from Aus-
tralia crushed Gardnar Mulloy and
Dick Savitt, America's top Doubles
combination yesterday in the big-
gest upset of the All-England Ten-
nis Tournament.
Lewis Hoad and Ken Rosewall,
both 17 years old-their combined
ages don't add up to Mulloy's 38
years-overcame the Americans
6-4, 8-6, 1-6, 3-6, 7-5.

BASEBALL ROUNDUP:

Shantz Shut Out Yanks;
Indians Move to Third

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - Bobby Shantz,
the mighty mite of the Philadel-
phia Athletics, breezed tohis 13th
victory of the season yesterday as
the A's humiliated the world
champion New York Yankees,
12-0.
Shantz permitted only two safe-
ties and also participated in the
14-hit assault against Johnny Sain
and Tom Morgan, driving in two
'uns on a single, double and
squeeze bunt.
Gus Zernial was the big man
for the A's, batting in five runs
on his 11th and 12th homers of
the season. Zernial connected
with one aboard in the first
inning and climaxed a six-run
second inning uprising with a
three-run homer.
Shantz held the Yanks hitless
until the fifth when Mickey Man-
tle singled. Bob Cerv doubled with
two out in the sixth for the Yanks'
other safety. The shutout was the
second of the season. for the little
lefthander and also the third suf-
fered by the Yanks.

canny eight-hit pitching and a
10-blow attack, including homers
by Larry Doby and Mike Easter.

five losses enabled the Indians to
break their fourth-place knot with
the White Sox and move into
third, only four percentage points
behind runner-up Washington.

BOSTON - Discarded by the
Boston Red Sox about two weeks

that gave the Washington Sena-
tors their fifth straight victory,
5-1.
