Ladd and Faison Very Big Problems for Sid Gillman DOUBLE WIN GIVES MATSON CONFIDENCE By BOB GREEN Associated Pies* Sports Writer Villahova appears to have a new track dynasty in the mak- ng, Texas A&M has a well- <nown behemoth reviving and Jim Grelle has to do some thinking. Those were the major developments in a busy weekend of [rack and field activity, centered in three widespread meets. In the Penn Relays at Philadelphia. Villanova's 19-year-old Dave Patrick was named the outstanding performer after leading his sophomore teammates through the rain and cold for a couple of surprising victories in the 'feature relays. In the Drake Relays at Des Moines, Iowa, Texas A&M's Randy Matson repeated a double, winning both the shot—with one of his best efforts of the year—and the discus. In the Mount San Antonio Relays at Walnut, Calif., the veter an miler Grelle turned to the 5, Texas A&M Track Giant Revives 000 meters, won with his usual blistering kick and must be wondering if he's been running the wrong race all these years. 'Patrick could be a great miler," Vlllanova coach Jumbo Jim Elliott said after the shy youngster led the Wildcats to their surprises. * * * Villanova, long the kingpin of Eastern track, was dethroned by Maryland as the IC4A outdoor champion last year, and by the Terrapins as the indoor champ this winter. The Wildcats Postponed Blytheville Pony League baseball, tryouts have again been postponed because of wet grounds. Scheduled for tonight and Tuesday at 7 o'clock, they have been shifted to Tuesday and Wednesday nights, same 'starting times, on the Midget League diamond at Federal Compress Park. weren't supposed to do much in these Relays because of heavy graduation losses. Patrick changed all that, running a 4:04.6 mile under terrible weather conditions Friday for a Villanova upset in the distance medley relay. The winning time was 9:46.4, one of two meet marks set in the oldest of 'all the college relays. Sam Bair Jr. of Kent State, broke the other with an 8:49.2 two-mile. * « * Patrick staged another come- from - behind finish Saturday with a 1:53 flat half mile on Villanova's 7:39.3 .two-mile relay. Again, the weather conditions were intolerable. At Des Moines,. Malson took the discus in a mediocre 185-4 and the shot in a solid 65-3%, one of his best of the year and a meet record. Matson, the young giant who holds the world record at 70-7, has voiced his concern over his performance and condition several times this season, but gained confidence Saturday. SAN DIEGO, Calif. (AP) Ernie Ladd and Earl Faison, two of the American Football League's top defensive players, became free age; '.s Sunday and the stalemate continued over who will have their 1966 services. Ladd and Faison played out their options with the San Diego Chargers, refusing 1965 contracts because they wanted more money; wanted a share in the big bonuses given rookies. The 6 foot 9, 315-pound Ladd and 6-5, 270-pound Faison were ali-AFL at tackle and end for the Chargers last year. Signed in 1961, they were half of a defensive line that helped estab-' lish AFL records In nearly all defensive aspects of the game la 1965. San piego General Manager- Coach Sid Gillman's only comment Sunday was that he had none. "Sid feels everybody in football is looking down his neck. He believes that if Ladd and Faison are given big bonuses to sign, other players will follow suit and it will hurt the game," a spokesman said. ; Meeting of Gun Club Tonight Hays T.
