Don Laz of Illinois says his de
sire to outdo a friend 1,500 miles
away inspired him to a record
outdoor pole vault of 15 feet 1
The 20-year-old Illini senior
also suggested rather modestly
that the record may be due for
further revising when he and Ne
braska's Don Cooper meet at Des
Moines, la., this coming week
end in the Drake Relays.
For Cooper, while performing
Saturday in the Kansas Relays,
bettered the Intercollegiate out
door standard with a vault of 15
feet Va inch.
However, the record remained
less than two hours after it was
announced in Los Angeles Me
morial Coliseum where Southern
California beat Illinois and Mich
igan in a three-way meet.
"I think that loudspeaker an
nouncement had something to do
with it," Laz declared later. Then
he told how he often had felt
overshadowed by Cooper since
their frosh days.
Laz said he and Cooper were
good friends but "I've always
wanted to beat Cooper more than
"I still remember one meet we
were both in. One little kid keptl
following me around all day and
asking for my autograph. He
thought I was Don Cooper. And
I couldn't convince him other
wise." Yaz, who has a mild voice and
hair the color of sawdust, would
not calculate his chance of bet
tering Cornelius Warmerdam's
world pole vault record of 15
feet T3,k inches. "But you can say
I'll improve as the season gets
older," he predicted.
Prospects of Winning
What are his prospects of beat
ing Cooper this week-end? "Well,
he's faster and stronger than I
am, but I have the advantage in
height. It ought to be close."
Las and Don McEwen, Michi
gan distance runner, grabbed
most of the individual honors. As
was expected, University of
Southern California posted its
441st consecutive track and field
Southern Cay performers fin
ished no worse than second in
every event. They won seven
firsts and piled up 75 points to
41 for Illinois and 35 for Michigan.

world's collegiate record for two-short hours Saturday. He is one
of four men ever to clear the magic 15 feet.
Son of Tiger
George Simpson, son of Mis
souri's backfield coach, reached
the first big milestone in his
hurdling career last weekend by
winning his high-hurdle race in
an invitational meet at Central
A junior at Hickman high
school, Simpson sped to victory
in the time of :07.8 seconds
one-tenth of a second faster than
the exisiting Class A record. His
time, however, is not a new
mark since it wasn't recorded in
a state meet.
With that effort, "Seabiscuit"
as his mother kiddingly dubbed
year George last year when he
first started hurling began to
earn his sobriquet.
The Brooklyn Dodgers and
Boston Braves hooked up in a
real old-fashioned pitcher's duel
Monday afternoon and waged
warfare for 16 innings before
the Dodgers rallied to win 2-1.
Carl Furillo, whose homer in the
tenth inning had beaten the
Giants Sunday, again clouted the
winning blow. Furillo blasted a

Hatten had hurled magnificent
ball for 11 innings, Hatten was
relieved by Erv Palica after
lefty Joe had walked the first
two men he faced in the 12th
frame. Palica hurled for one and
two-thirds innings and then de
parted for a pinch-hitter. Clyde
King then came on and flipped
the final four frames and was
awarded the win.
All The Way
Spahn went the distance for
the Braves. He lost his bid for
a no-hitter in the fifth when
Dodger first baseman walloped
the ball into the lower stands to
tie the game at 1-1. The scor
ing stopped right there until the
Spahn had terrific control
throughout the game and walked
only two men over the 16 in
ning stretch, one intentionally.
He picked two Dodgers off first
base, including Jackie Robinson.
Only two Dodgers were left on
the bases which is remarkable.
The win was the fifth in six
games for the Bums and left
them in first place in the senior
loop. The Brave record now
stands at 4-4.
Detroit's Vic Wertz lashed out
a three-run homer in the last
of the ninth to give the Tigers
a 7-4 decision over the hapless
St. Louis Browns.
The Brownies jumped on
Tiger starter Trout for three tal
lies in the first period but
couldn't hold back the tide.
Ginsberg and Mullen each
clouted a four-bagger to join
Wertz in the Tiger fold.
The win gives the Detroiters a
2-4 record to date, boosting
them out of the American league
cellar. The Browns are now last
with the Philadelphia A's.
The Chicago Cubs continued
in second place in the National
league by edging the Pittsburgh
Pirates, 2-1. A double by Andy
Pafko in the last of the ninth
drove in Hank Sauer with th

of the ninth.

in seven starts, gives them a
