Eleven First Place Finishes
Captured b Pacific Invaders
By DICK LEWIS
Daily Sports Editor
Balmy, California-type weather served as an apt setting to yes-
terday's Big Ten-Pacific Coast dual track meet and the invading
Westerners responded to their favorite type of climate by scoring a
lop-sided 82 1/6-49 5/6 verdict before an estimated 7000 Ferry Field
With a crew of stellar field competitors setting the pace, the Pa-
cifiic Coast unit made it interesting by keeping even for a few events
before applying the pressure to annex eleven contests and win going

Roberts Wins over Cubs

BILLED AS THE TOP attractions on the star-studded card,
Southern California's tandem of Sim Iness and Parry O'Brien took
their expected laurels with ease but nevertheless had to play second
fiddle to another member of the outstanding Trojan squad.
This athlete was a high jumper named Ernie Shelton who
had never before leaped over 6 feet, 7Y 2inches. He provided a
good deal of the thrills for the crowd by soaring 6-9% before mak-
ing three unsuccessful tries at the world record.
Shelton had Michigan's NCAA champion Milt Mead as a run-
ning mate for most of his heart-thumping flight. Both went over 6-5,
6-6, 6-7, and 6-8 on his first try. But at 6-9%/4 Mead tipped the bar
only slightly in two jumps-only enough to,dislodge it and cost him
a first place for the Big Ten. His third try was way short.
Then Shelton took over to make his winning leap before attempt-
ing 6-117/8, bypassing 6-11 in a try at the world record. Shelton came
close, but he couldn't quite make it.
MEANWHILE INESS chalked up the discus in a poor (for him)
178 feet, 5% inches, or about nine feet better than second-place
O'Brien, also the shot put victor with a heave of 55-9. Fritz Nilsson,
Wolverine Olympian was third in both contests.
Washington's Dale Skartvedt overcame a bruised ankle to
triumph in the broad jump at 23-6'/2 and Len Eilers of UCLA
made the West Coast field sweep next to complete by deadlock-
ing for first place in the pole vault with Illini Jim Wright at 13-6.
The Pacific Coast parlayed this field dominance with several ex-
ceptional individual showings on the cinders while taking its third
straight verdict from the Big Ten and eighth in 12 of these meetings.
SOUTHERN CAL'S JACK DAVIS was the meet's only double win-
ner as he came out on top in both the 120 yard high and 220-yard low
hurdles. Showing a flawless form that is generally recognized as just
about the best among today's young hurdlers, Davis spurted at the
finish to nose out Illini Joel McNulty in :13.8 and establish a new
Ferry Field standard while equalling the meet record.
He used the same technique in the lows, ending up with a
strong kick that collared another Illini, Joe Corley, and left arch-
rival McNulty in the third position.
Another streak of lightning was Trojan Jim Lea, victor over an
outstanding 440 field in a' good :48.1 Lea, who toured the 440 in 47
seconds flat last Saturday in the Nationals, took an early lead, fought
off bids of Maize and Blue Captain Jack Carroll and California's
Lowell Timmerman to win by about five yards. Trojan Verle Sorgen
came from nowhere to place second in this event as the West
Coast swept all three point-getting positions.
THE WINNERS all told took eight out of a possible nine -points
, (tallies were awarded on a 5-3-1 basis) in four races. They added
sweeps In the sprint relay and the mile relay, the latter done in 3:13.6
for a new Ferry Field record, and left their eleventh first place for
sprinter Rod Richard, a sprinter who upset the dope and defeated
Willie Williams of Illinois in the 220-yard dash.
Williams earlier scored by a hair over Richard in the 100-yard
dash to equal the meet record of :09.5. A head-wind of 2 miles
per hour failed to hinder the fleet Illini over his favorite dis-
The bulk of the Big Ten's five firsts came in the distance events,
however, and most of them were by rather one-sided margins. Steady
Rich Ferguson of Iowa won as he pleased in the 2-mile contest with
an excellent 9:03.4. Denny Meyer, the Washington long-distance
threat finished second, almost 50 yards behind the smooth-striding
Ferguson, who won an early struggle with Purdue's Gene Matthews
and opened'up a big gap after a mile and a half.
CANADIAN JOHN ROSS provided a big kick for the local parti-
sans in the mile run, where he outdueled Hoosier Jim Lambert along
the backstretch to lead the way home in a 4:13.2. In making amends
for failures in the NCAA and Big Ten meets Ross was in second place
behind Illini Walt Jewsbury after a 63.5 first quarter.
Len Simpson of California took over the lead at the half mile
which was completed in 2:09 as Ross maintained the second spot,
and the same two were 1-2 in a 3:11 three-quarters. Ross gradually
disposed of Simpson and Jewsbury eventually cdosed in for third
spot to make it a Western Conference sweep.
Illini Stacy Siders provided another pulsating win in the 880
by surviving a last gasp dash by California's Lon Spurrier to cross
the finish line first by the scantest of margins. His time was 1:52 flat.
The other Big Ten success was a big one. The four-man team
composed of Wolverine Van Bruner, Michigan State's John Corbelli,
Willis Thompson of Illinois and McNulty toured the 480-yard shut-
tle relay course in :57.3, the second fastest time ever run at this
distance. Davis and McNulty, the anchormen and two great rivals,
raced neck and neck over the final few sticks with McNulty's victory
margin being only a few inches at the wire.

BOSTON - Thanks to a strong
wind, Willard Nixon pitched Bos-
ton to a 6-4 victory over Cleveland
yesterday in the sunlight half of a
Dick Gernert's routine fly
dropped for a three-bagger and
scored two runners to break a 4-4
tie in the eighth inning.
NIXON, who appears to have
regained the control he displayed
when called up late in 1951, kept
seven Cleveland hits fairly well
scattered. But among them were
two solid triples by Larry Doby,
each of which accounted for a run.
Gernert's game-winning fluke
came against Relief Pitcher Bob
Hooper after he had given a
single to Milt Bolling and walked
Billy Goodman. With one out,
Hoot Evers laced a single to cen-
ter. But Bolling was caught over-
running third base:
Then the wind carried Gern-
ert's fly to right over Harry Simp-
son's head and Goodman and
TRIED HIS BEST-Wolverine high jumper Milt Mead kept even
with Southern Cal's Ernie Shelton at 6-5, 6-7, and 6-8, but after
three tries at 6-8%, the lanky Michigan athlete had to drop
out. Shelton went on to clear 6-93. before making three un-
successful attempts at the world record.
DOBY'S FIRST three-bagger
was lashed after Luke Easter sin-
gled in the second inning and, the
former scored on Simpson's in-
In the bottom of that frame,
George Kell doubled and was
singled in by Tom Umphlett.
The Red Sox evened matters in
the third when Sammy White
doubled in Goodman.
The Red Sox gained a 3-2 lead
in the fourth, when Evers doubled
after Starter Mike Garcia had
walked Johnny Lipon and Nixon.
CHICAGO-Robin Roberts con-
tinued his complete mastery over
the Chicago Cubs yesterday with
his fourth victory against the
Bruins and his 12th of the season
in a 6-1 Philadelphia triumph.
The lone Chicago tally off eight
hits left the Cubs with only three
runs scored against Roberts in 36
innings this season.
ROBERTS held the Cubs score-
less until the sixth when Frankie
Baumholtz doubled and scored on
Dee Fondy's single. The Philly
star now has hurled 25 consecu-
tive complete games. He has lost
four this season.
The loser was Starter Bob
Rush, chased in the fifth as the
Phils scored two for a 5-0 lead.
Turk Lown followed Rush, yield-
ing Del Ennis' 12th homer in the
sixth. Sheldon Jones pitched the
ninth inning for the Cubs.
Roberts chilled the Cubs after
they had won six of their last
eight games, including two out of
three from their most recent vis-
itors, the Brooklyn Dodgers.
