Daily Sports Editor
An overwhelming display of
point-getting power in the NCAA
Track and Field Championships
at Lincoln, Nebraska last week-
end brands the Pacific Coast track
aggregation as favorite in the an-
nual Big Ten-PCC dual competi-
tion at Ferry Field today.
The widely-publicized tourna-
ment of champions is a twilight
affair, scheduled to get underway
at 5:39 p.m.
* *. *
IN THE NCAA set-to, West
Coast performers annexed five
first places while 22 of the same
Pacific group garnered at least
one point. Western Conference
color bearers could bring home
only three firsts while placing 17.
Southern Cat took the unof-
ficial NCAA team crown and
will bring a host of record-
breaking athletes to show their
wares before the better than
10,000 spectators expected at
the ancient Michigan cinder
track.
Foremost among these are a!
pair of slightly sensational weight
men who within the past month
have added two world's standards
to their already bulging bagatelle.
MUSCULAR Sim Iness, a mam-
moth 250-pounder who hurls the
discus further than any man on
earth, last Saturday reached his
pinnacle - a 190 foot, /8 inch
heave that easily won the NCAA
discus title.
His only competition is team-
mate Parry O'Brien, a spright-
ly 225 pounder known better
for his exploits with the 16-
pound metal ball. At the Comp-
ton Relays in California a few

SIM INESS

weeks ago, the big Irishman got
off a 59 foot, 23/ inch toss that
is tops in all-time shot put an-
nals.
O'Brien's only hope now is to
shatter the elusive 60-foot mark,
something that no other shotput-
ter has ever accomplished. He
might have his big chance today.
* * *
LONE BIG TEN hope in these
two field events is Michigan's
transplanted Swedish Olympian
Roland (Fritz) Nilsson. The Svano
Swede is the Big Ten titlist in
both events, but his distances are
far below those of the two tre-
mendous Trojans.
Just as the West Coast has
rugged field stalwarts, a fleet
Southern Cal sprinter named
Jim Lea and a sure-footed
Southern Cal hurdler called Jim
Davis can also be expected to
gain the first place nod.
Lea racked up the NCAA 440
crown in a flashy 47 seconds flat,
beating Wolverine Big Ten cham-
pion Jack Carroll by daylight in
the process.

DAVIS WAS a double winner
in both hurdles events over Illini
Joel McNulty, regarded for some
time as the top collegiate hurdler
in the mid-west.
But don't sell the Western
Conference short. The local
favorites, too, look like sure
winners in quite a few events.
Iowa's Rich Ferguson, the ,Ca-
nadian who conquered the un-
conquerable Don McEwen sev-
eral times last season, has a
9:02.7 two-mile as his latest
achievement.
And little Willie Williams, the
turbine-legged Illini, evidenced
that he too was in peak form with
his thrilling verdict in the NCAA
100. He'll also go in the 220, with
UCLAn Rod Richard as the man
to beat in the latter event.
THE RACES and events that in
all probability will decide the
meet, which the Pacific Coast has
Due to the track meet, the
Intramural Building will close
at 4 p.m. today.
--Earl Riskey
won seven out of eleven times
since its inception in 1937, are
the tossups.
Wolverine Milt Mead gained
a three-way tie for the NCAA
high jump championship at
6-81s, his second best mark of
the year. He'll be battling Er-
nie Shelton of Southern Cal who
can be tough when the chips
are down.
The Big Ten has the top miler
in the meet (Michigan's John
Ross), but his recent form is
nothing to recommend, although
he turned in a 4:11.4 mile earlier
in the year.
