Kokomo's top-rated Wildcats, the defending state champions, were top-heavy favorites to advance to next • Saturday's Fort Wayne semi-state tourney with a classy 24-1 record and a 21-game winning streak. Also heavily favored were La- 1 fayette and unbeaten Madison at Olumbus, but at least three members of the "Big 10" faced elimination—one each at Evan's- ville. East Chicago and Indianapolis. Those three also were expected to dish up some of the toughest battles as the 64 sectional champs battled for survival. 5,000 Seats At Butler Most of the 16 tourneys were expected to be jam-packed with hardwood fans. Among the exceptions was Butler Fieldhouse here, where 5.000 seats were placed on public sale despite the fact the four-team show contains two of the lop tourney hopefuls—Indianapolis Attucks and Southport—its neighbor to the South. The two were expected to clash for' the regional title tonight. Five title rounds will be televised — East Chicago, Elkhart, Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, and Lafayette. At East Chicago, a return scrap between the host Senators and West XIHSC titlist Gary Froebel was possible. Froebel, tied with Attucks for No. 6 in the state, dealt second-ranked East Chicago j its only defeat during the season, i ' East XIHSC antagonists Elkhart j and South Bend Central were fa- j vurcrl to advance to the title j clash at Elkhart, -with the host i P.hie Blazers seeking revenge for j a regular-season setback. The Fort Wayne tourney • was I one of quite a few considered! '"wide open." ! It was Angola vs Berne and • Berne and Fort Wayne Central's ex-champs against Ligonier in the preliminaries. Rossville Beat Broncs Two-time champion Lafayette, next to Kokomo probably the hottest title contender, was primed fur revenge against Rossville, one of three teams to whip the Broncos during the season. Besides' Kokomo, two other members of last year's' "Fieldhouse Four" were still battling— Logansport and Tell City. Logansport was favored in its own bailiwick, but Tell City, winner of the las; three regionals at Evansville, must convince two toughies to stay in the running—Castle and most likely Evansville Bosse, the only team to beat the Marksmen during the season. Also in jeopardy was the longest live regional winning streak — Muncie Central's eight. The Bearcats, who lost starters Bill Dinwiddie and Brian Settles as the result of a hazing incident, met strong North Central Conference foe Richmond in the second afternoon game at New Castle. Even should Muncie reach the "Sweet 16," it would still be two titles shy of tying the all-time regional string of 11 hung up by Frankfort in 193?. 139 Nominated For 88th Running Of Kentucky Derby By JOHN G. DIETRICH United Press International LOUISVILLE, Ky. (UPI) — Churchill Downs today announced 139 nominees for the 88th running of the $125,000 added Kentucky Derby May 5, The potential field including .Sir Gaylord, Crimson Satan, Ridan and most of the other promising three-year-olds of the year. Sir Gaylord' was nominated by Chris T. Chenery's Meadow Stable, which also named one of the only two fillies nominated, Cicada, champion two-year-old of her sex last season. The other filly was nominated by Ike Bailey of Lexington, Ky. At the time *he was nominated she had not been named, and thus was the first unnamed horse to be nominated for the Derby in many years, perhaps in this century. She has since been named Addie B. Only one filly. Regret in 1915, ever has won the Kentucky Derby. The largest Derby delegation was nominated by Darby Dan Farm, which made six horses eligible for the mile and one quarter classic. Five of the six are sons of the 1955 Derby winner. Swaps; four are owned by John W. Galbreath, the other two by Mrs. Galbreith. Mrs: Elizabeth Arden Graham's Maine Chance Farm—which won with Jet Pilot in 1947—and C. V. Whitney each nominated five. Robert J. Kleberg's King Ranch, winner with Assault in 1946 and with Middleground in 1950, made four eligible. Calumet Farm, whose seven Derby victories have made Mrs. Warren Wright's Devil -- Red silks almost synonymous with the Kentucky Derby, this year could come up with only one shaky candidate —John Winslow, a Nashua colt out of a Bull Lea mare. The colt has won 511,000 so far, but trainer Jimmie Jones is far from convinced he is of Derby statute. Other Prominent Entries Some of the other more prominent three -. year - olds included among the nominees were Donut King, Doc Jocoy, Dead Ahead, Admiral's Voyage, Decidedly, Endymion, Green Ticket, Loil Roii, Mighty Fennec, Puss N Boots, Rattle Dancer, Rainly Lake and Su Ka Wa. New York restaurateur J. J. Amiel nominated two sons of his Derby-winning Count Turf—Count J. D. and Count New York.

Track Stars Fail To Set Records In New York Meet By STEVE SNIDER United Press. International NEW YORK (ftPl)—Pole ,vaulter John Uelses, admittedly* lucky to win his -latest title at 15 feet, 4 inches, thinks he'll soon be back in 16-foot form "if I can just get enough strawberry shortcake." That's what the German-born 'Marine corporal has been gorging on in an effort to build back the weight he lost when influenza felled him three weeks ago at a time when his 15-foot vaults were routine. . "I lost nine pounds after the flu •hit and so far have gained back only three despite all the strawberry shortcake," he said. "I still felt real weak last night. I didn't expect any better than 15 feet." But Uelses, weak or not, catapulted over 15- on his trusty fiberglass pole and barely pulled out a victory over three others who made the same height—Rolando Cruz - of Villanova, AA champ Henry Wadsworth of the U.S. Army and John Belitza of Maryland — in the 43rd annual Knights of Columbus champion: ship at Madison Square Garden. Has Fewer Misses Uelses had fewer misses than any of his rivals on the way up and was declared the winner. But when he tried 15-8, he obviously was off the form that carried him first to 16 feet, one-quarter inch at the Garden on Feb. 2 and 16% a week later at Boston. In the last Garden meet for all- comers-^-the winter season closes with next Saturday night's IC4A championships for collegians only —George Kerr of Jamaica," John Thomas of Boston U., Bruce Kidd of Toronto, Frank" Budd of Villanova, Hayes Jones of. Detroit, Gary Gubner of New Yorfc.U., and Tom O'Hara of Loyola of Chi cago won the top events. '<•. . Kerr, world record holder for 600 yards, retained his K of C title by upsetting Canadian sensation Bill Crothers, who stumbled while running in the lead with a lap to go. ,"I didn't touch him," Kerr said, —and that later was confirmed by Crothers' coach, Fred Foote, who said it was Don Webster of Villanova who had stepped on the Toronto U. star's foot, nearly causing him to fall. Crothers finished second, Webster third. Thomas Leaps 4-10' Thomas leaped 6-10 for the high jump title and Gubner cracked the old meet record five times while winning the. shot put at 63 feet, well off his pending world indoor mark of 64-11%. Kidd, 18 - year . old Toronto U. freshman, romped borne .in an 8:58.8 two-mile, victor by half' a lap over 'Ireland's Tom O'Riordan who had beaten .him earlier at Boston. ••'•*- '' _ .

WYORK (UPI) — Astronaut Joh£ Glenn, the Marine who took New York single handed, goes" home today for a welcome that promises to be his warmest if not the. biggest. Tiny New Concord, Ohio, doesn't hope to match the size of the tributes to Glenn in Cape Canaveral, Washington and New York.

Glenn, his wife, children, parents and in-laws, leave the Waldorf Towers today in a motorcade which will take them to Newark Airport in New Jersey for his final tumultuous salute east of the Appalachians.

A special. 500-man contingent of state, local and airport police has been assigned for the brief ceremonies at' which Gov. Richard J. Hughes and Newark Mayor Leo P. Carlin will preside and make Glenn an honorary citizen of Newark. Glenn is scheduled to board a plane for the flight to Zanesville, Ohio, and a motorcade trip to his hometown. The plane is scheduled to leave at 8:45 a.m. EST. The astronaut, who roared into New York Thursday like March weather, capped his visit Friday night by attending another Broadway musical. The curtain on "Camelot" went up several minutes late because the audience gave Glenn, the other astronauts and their families a standing ovation.

The British Foreign Office said the resumption of tests was "necessary to ensure the preservation of freedom in the world." Kennedy's offer to- delay the tests in favor of a Big Three summit meeting, if Russia signs a fully-effective test' ban treaty with provisions for inspection provides "a further opportunity for the Russians to sign a treaty banning tests altogether," the Foreign Office said. But the Soviet news agency Tass said Russia will reject Ken kedy's offer of a nuclear test ban treaty because it considers the United States' insistence on inspection "completely unacceptable." Calls It Blackmail Tass accused Kennedy of hav ing "tied up the forthcoming United States nuclear tests in the atmosphere with disarmament ne gotiations .' . . thus making a clumsy attempt to justify himself before the world public.

Get 6 Weeks To Sign Agreement On Nuclear Tests Steel Leaders Break-off Talks By RICHARD F. FONT ANA United Press International PITTSBURGH (UPI) — Negotiations for new steel industry labor contracts — supposedly moving along smoothly — were "broken off Friday night until after May 1. At a brisk news conference following a brief meeting Friday night, the. top negotiators—David J. McDonald, United Steelworkers (USW) president, and R. Conrad Cooper of U.S.- Steel Corp.—said they were far apart and recessing until "sometime after May 1." Industry and union reportedly were 1 per cent apart — with the steel firms offering a 2 per cent wage and benefit -increase, and labor asking a 3 per cent .hike. Goldberg Regrets. Interruption Labor Secretary Arthur J. Goldberg said.he "regretted" the interruption in negotiations. - Goldberg said President Kennedy felt it would be in the national interest for talks to be resumed "after a suitable recess."

SURBER, Mayor Cfty of Tipton, Indiana By MERRIMAN SMITH UPI White House Reporter WASHINGTON (UPI) — President Kennedy has given Russia six weeks to sign a firm nuclear test ban agreement or see the United States take the "grim, unwelcome" step of resuming atmospheric testing. . . Despite the President's warning that uncontrolled testing might send the arms race "mushrooming out of control," early reaction •from Moscow indicated the Soviet Union would reject what-Kennedy- called a monumental stride toward peace. Some three hours after he told a nationwide' radio-television audience he had given a go-ahead for atmospheric tests, the Soviet news agency Tass labelled the President's inspection and control plan as "completely unacceptable." Anti-Missile Missile Barring some dramatic reversal by the Kremlin, this apparently meant the United States would embark during the last two weeks in April on a Pacific test series' designed to match the "substantial gains in weaponry'! achieved by Russia in its recent massive test series. . .Kennedy hoped the forthcoming U.S. tests would help develop an anti-missile missile system to knock down hostile rockets and lead to more efficient nuclear weapons generally. While he men- - tioned only atmospheric" shots, it was possible space shots also would be involved. A Reassuring Note ' On a reassuring note, the Chief Executive said Russia did not appear to have a missile capable of carrying Khrushchev's boasted 100-megaton bomb, the equivalent of 100 million tons of TNT. But he said any further Soviet ad- - vances might encourage "aggressive designs" by Moscow. The President's announcement, which won strong bipartisan support in Congress, said the U.S. test series would be completed in from two to three months and would result in an "absolute minimum" of radioactive fallout. Expressions of approval came from Britain and France, the other two atomie powers. Japan, target of the only A-bombs, dropped in anger, delivered a let-" ter of protest to the White House even before Kennedy went on the air. The President himself said he acted reluctantly and only be- . cause last fall's Soviet test series, climaxed by the detonation of a 50-60 megaton superbomb, had enabled the Russians to develop "some hovel designs v and techniques." Willing To Meet Even so, Kennedy said he would- be willing to meet in Geneva with Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev and British Prime Minister Harold Macmillan to sign a nuclear test ban with airtight inspection controls if Khrushchev would agree. The Tass statement said, however, that the U.S. President "did not risk anything, knowing full well that the .S.S.R. rejects the system of inspection proposed by. the I U.S.A. and Britain as completely' unacceptable." And it went on to say that Kennedy's speech proved that he viewed the March 14 Geneva disarmament negotiations "as a convenient opportunity to weaken the unfavorable attitude of the world public to the resumption of the American nuclear tests." Kennedy reported his fateful decision only after months of intensive deliberation by U.S. and British scientists, the National Security Council (iNSC) and the nation's; highest military and intelligence officers. They came to the conclusion that the Soviet test series indicated "highly sophisticated technology.. .and some substantial gains in weaponry.'' '
