(AP) —The team title in the squabble-marked 45th annual NCAA Track and Field meet was up for grabs today after a costly ruling which deprived favored UCLA of apparent victory in the 120 high hurdles. As a result, darkhorse Brigham Young, already ahead with 22 points was the team to watch in the 13-final windup at Indian University. Two NCAA records were bettered and one tied, while four individual champions were session. In one of the three unusual penalties, UCLA's Ron Copeland was disqualified as 120-high-hur- die winner when three judges charged he trailed a leg below the plane of the hurdle. First place was awarded to Arizona's Dale Frederick with a 13.7 clocking compared with Copeland's 13.6. The rare infraction meant that that Copeland dipped his trailing leg around the corner of several hurdles which is illegel. UCLA Coach Jim Bush bitterly protested to the meet Games Committee, contending he had never seen such a call, which cost the Bruins 10 points for the canceled first place. Until that ruling as darkneess fell on the field, Bush was highly optimistic over UCLA's chances to dethrone co-champions Southern California and Oregon.

Ed Pacheco doubled, moved to third on Hartman's second straight bunt hit and scored when losing pitcher Frank Montogmery uncorked a wild pitch. Hartman went to second on the wild pitch and to third on Montgomery's balk. He scored on Rader's single. * » * Arkansas got two in its half of the third when Deras walked, went to third on Roy Majtyka' double and scored when the relay from the outfield got away from Pacheco, with Majtyka taking third. Majtyka scored on Steve Huntz' double. The game was played under protest from the second inning, Manager Vernon Rapp of Ark ansas claiming he lost a run through an umpire's decision. Joe Patterson led off thee inning with a walk, went to third on a single by Bart Zeller. While he was on third, Paul Doyle, starting Amarillo pitch er, threw a wild pitch with Pat' erson apparently scoring. But loss, falling to Austin 8-6 and El Paso won its fourth straight, tumbling Dallas-Fort Worth 94. They pulled within a half- game of Albuquerque.

The Kiwanis kids could only get one hit in their attack as Ark-Mo rolled in the short contest. Ark-Mo showed only four hits but four walks and four errors meant trouble for Kiwanis. Baguley was the winning pitcher, Beavers the loser. Parrish for Kiwanis and Crigger for Ark-Mo pitched in relief. Ross had two hits for the winners who scored six runs in the second inning. North 61's attack was spearheaded by Abbott who pounded two home runs and a single. A single by J.

STUNG LEGION STINGS HELENA Casons Go Again STAN WILLIAMS Stocks Sum/ay Racer Hurt At Osceola OSCEOLA — An unidentified stock car driver was injured at Cottonwood Raceway last night and had to be taken to a hospital. There was no late report on riis condition. In another spetacular Class C display, a car jumped the fence, did a flip, landed sunnyside up in the pit, and then drove right back on the track to continue racing. * * * Buford Ward of Memphis won the Class C feature and Jim Hall of E.

Thus, he had no control. In other words, when he turned left, his right wheel would turn right. You can't race like that. Right, Hooker?

(Feuds 'n All) LE MANS, France (AP) — The Le Mans 24-hour automobile race started today following a series of last-minute feuds. Ford, challenging the dominance of Ferrari, was back in the line-up after threatening to withdraw its entire list of entries over the disqualificaion of one of is drivers. And Ferrari went into the race without its No. 1 driver, John Surtees, who bolted the team when a third man was named to the combination for his car. Surtees was angry because he believed the addition of a third driver was an insinuation by Ferrari that he could not complete the gruelling 24-hours.
