The Bearcats were ham pered by the immobilizatipn ofl ace sprinter iioD Jones wno punea up lame in his heat of the 100 yard dash and was scratched the rest of the day. It was a tough blow to Coach Bob Mowerson's Bearcats. Bob Lake of Kalamazoo, Willie Prewitt' of Willow Run, Ken Miller of Jackson and Dean Look of Lansing Everett turned in tremendous performances. Probably the most colorful was the versatility of Prewitt, a Negro sophomore competing in his first big track meet. He scored all his team's 17 points in Class B. Standing only 5-8, Prewitt elec trified the gathering of about 1,000 with a record-breaking leap of 22 feet, 104 inches, in the broad jump to smash the old meet standard of 22 ft., k in., way back in 1942 by Bob Whitefield of Kalamazoo. Prewitt said he "ate too much" otherwise he might have done better. Pole Vault Thrills He came back to win his heat of the 100 yard dash, took a sec ond in the 220 and figured in a three-way tie for second in the high jump. Look of Everett in Class C emerged a triple winner, negotiating the pole vault at 12 feet, Vs inch. Look had a new meet record, the old mark being by George Best of the Bearcats three years ago at II-IOV2. However, Miller of Jackson erased Look's record on a vault of 12 ft., Us ins., in the last event of the day. Battle Creek placed high in several events with Harold Stancle taking a second and Doug Roderick a third in the half-mile; Joe Fullerton a tie for second in the high jump at 5-11 and a fifth in the broad jump; Welton Bonner a fourth in the shot; Duane Griffin a fifth in high hurdles; Ed Smith a tie for fourth in high jump; Earl Seamons a second and Daryl Gibbs a fourth in the! mile, and Ronnie Bohanna a! fourth in low hurdles.

Stumble Fails To Stop Famed Nashua NEW YORK m Millionaire Nashua stumbled to his knees coming out of the starting gate, but still had enough to fight off a half dozen eager rivals and win the $50,000-added Grey Lag Handicap at Jamaica yesterday. A capacity crowd of 38,787 saw the courageous son of Nasrullah, under a fine ride by Ted Atkin son, recover quicKiy, taice over the lead at three-quarters ot a mile, then squash a tremendous closing bid by Alfred G. Vander-bilt's Find to haul down top money of $37,100. The victory ran Nashua's earnings to $1,077,615, just 8,145 short of the all-time money winner Citation. It also was his 18th victory in 23 starts and came two years to the day after winning his first race at neighboring Belmont Park. The big 4-year-old toured the mile and one-eighth route in 1:50-35 and paid $3.90, $3.10 and S2.50 as the overwhelming favorite. Find paid $5.80 and $4.30 and C. V. Whitney's Fisherman, who took the show spot a head back of Find, paid $4.80. Atkinson was a pleased rider when he took his charge to the paddock. "Other than the fact that he stumbled pretty badly at the gate, there was nothing you could blame him for had he been beaten," said Atkinson, who rode Nashua only once before in a race his winning effort in the Wood Memorial last year.

Kaiser Stars In Final Drive Peaks Is Voted Outstanding Player By DAVE DILES EAST LANSING (. Ten thousand fans got a first hand look at Michigan State's 1956 football stalwarts here yesterday, and the wide open oftensive show convinced- them that Duffy Daugherty's Spartans will treat them to plenty of excitement come next fall. The White team composed of second, third and fifth stringers defeated the Green squad or first and fourth teamers in the annual spring practice game. 27-21 at Macklin Field. Included in the seven touchdown splurge were 11 fumbles and 5 pass inter ceptions. 49-Yard Pass The contest was played under regular game conditions, and the Spartans went at it as if the Big Ten title were at stake. Seven players scored touchdowns, with the deciding score coming late n the fourth quarter when Rose Bowl star Dave Kaiser shook loose from two defenders to grab a 49-yard scoring pass from Mike Panitch, sophomore quarterback from Chicago. The upset victory for the scrubs did not keep Clarence Peaks from a great performance, however, as the senior halfback from Flint raced for 144 yards in 20 carries, or better than seven yards a crack. Peaks was awarded a trophy as the game's outstanding player. The two teams battled to a 7-7 standoff in the first half. The Whites scored after a blocked punt in the second period and the Greens bounced back with a 71 yard scoring march in eight plays to tie it up. Panitch Looks Good Although the Greens completed only 3 of 12 passes, and the Whites 5 of 10, Daugherty found competent throwers in quarterbacks Pat Wilsn Jim Ninowski and Panitch. And he got out standing end play from Tony Kolodziej, a lean 6-footer from Florence, Mass.; Jim Hinesly, senior letterman from Detroit; Lanky Larry Harding, Detroit junior, and Kaiser. Kaiser, who kicked the field goal that gave Michigan State its 17-14 Rose Bowl victory last Jan. 1 over UCLA, had been demoted" to the second team But the husky Alpena junior was far and away the best end on the field. And his charging kept Green squad passers off balance all day, After a scoreless first quarter, the Whites capitalized on the blocked punt to start the scoring barrage. A mix-up on a handoff and two long losses by fourth strinff Quarterback Bobbv Poud set the Greens back to their own 31. Fifth string guard John Middleton blocked Peaks' kick and the Whites got possession on the two. Dennis Mendyk, long striding senior from St. Charles, punched it over from there and Kaiser converted. Mendyk Cuts Loose The Greens tied the score in eight plays with fullback. Don Gilbert getting the last nine yards.
