I olin O'Donnell's . . . x? The 1957 History and Records of National Collegiate Chamoion- raips, including 13 sports, hit the desk Saturday afternoon, and it is jpSmething of which Walter Byers, NCAA Executive Director, may tfll be proud. There is a wealth of information in it. Sports writers, in partic ular, should be happy about the book for it will answer a lot of those questions which come over the phone, morning, noon and night. i It is a good addition to the sports library, which is topped by Biie late Frank Menke's Encyclopedia of Sports. f Here are some of the things you may and may not know: Ohio State and Michigan, two perennial football powers, are V waging a battle for the most National Collegiate individual championships, with the Ohioans irirrently ahead by the slim 'margin of 125 to 119. Tbey have the only 100-plus counts among the 450 member ? -colleges and universities of the NCAA. And how do they get that way? Believe it or not, swimming championships are their forte. jjChio State has 84 of them, Michigan 80. f f-ij Take a school like Vale University. Where dors it excel? In 4?61f, hi which it leads the country Alan Howard of Davenport will bi happy to hear that for he helped supply some of the-tatTes. With 21 team golf championships. Vale leads with a 25 total followed by Southern Cal with 23. Of that number. 19 track and field Championships are included. Oklahoma Aggies has 21, including 19 wTestling crowns. Tabulations are made over the 74-year, 14-event history of th national championships conducted by the NCAA. P 52 un., March 3, 1957 Democrat-Time The latest publication shows that there has been no corner Collegiate and individual team titles. Student- ,n athletes from 157 different institutions more than one-third of j :he NCAA's total membership have won Individual champion-pships and 64 different institutions have won team titles. All told, 1,782 collegiates have staked claim to the "National Collegiate Champion" label. ;; Southern Cal, thanks to 53 track titles, ranks third in number J. Jf individual titles won, 78. Other high-ranking individual winners 'are Yale, fourth, with 75; Illinois, fifth, with 73; Oklahoma ?Aggies, sixth, with 68, and Stanford, seventh, with 51. yfin National 7, - Right behind the team leaders are the Wolverines, who have ijjread 16 national titles over six different sports the greatest if rsatility in the championship series and Ohio State and Illinois, jpfjth 13 apiece. C Besides being a partner to the domination of swim team titles fix against Ohio State's 10), Michigan owns six of eight ice hockey jowns. i Other leaders in the championship series are: Wisconsin, box-ijjg; Illinois, gymnastics; Denver, skiing; UCLA, tennis. Each has !tn nearly half of the team championships contested in these borts. i$ Baseball, basketball, cross-country and fencing are without domination by a single institution, although cross-country borders pn the line because of Michigan State's six championships. Basketball has three repeaters, headed by Kentucky's three-time thampions. Texas is the only team to repeat as a baseball champion, end fencing is the most evenly-divided of all events, with Columbia Jtolding a slight edge. . Wisconsin has a record hard to beat in boxing. il The Badge 13 top the country with eight national team ' championships and 35 national individual championships. Idaho -Vand Michigan State are the only challengers. In 1943 and 1956 the Badgers won five individual titles and if our In 1939 and 1948. Chuck Davey of Michigan State gave college boxers some-thing at which to shoot: He won the national championship four 'iflimes, at 127 pounds, 135 pounds, 136 pounds and 145 pounds. Wisconsin holds the national record for the NCAA boxing iournaments. 49,800 in 1948, 38.900 in 1947 and 38,034 in 1956. v 'J The NCAA book shows a picture of Charley Jones of Iowa tmiversity nosing out Henry Kennedy of Michigan State in the closest finish in the 19-year history of the National Collegiate Crosscountry Championships In 1955 at East Lansing. Jones won the duel on a snow-covered course in 19:57.4. Jones wore long underwear that day. '0. It wasn't until 1934 that the Yale-Harvard-Princeton-Dartmouth itrangle-hold on the national golf championships was broken. Then fttichigan moved into the picture. Since then, just like in football, the power has moved to other jbarts of the country. 'A Stanford, Ohio State, Notre Dame, San Jose, Southern Methodist, jtouisiana State, Houston and North Texas State, four times, have Raptured the big golf title. ;i Ice hockey has been sponsored by the NCAA since 1948. i;;Each year the national championship event has been held at Colorado Springs. Michigan has taken the crown six out of nine l times. ; ! There have been only three skiing tournaments held, startling in 1954. Denver has won all of them. v? Would you happen to know that Chicago University, now : only dimly recalled in the sports picture, won 12 consecutive national championships in track and field and that there has never been an Eastern school take the crown? p The 1957 event will be held in the South for the first time, 5$ June 14-15 at the University of Texas. KNIGHTS (Continued From First Page) Knights were on top most of the rest of the way. Noonan. McCleary and Car- moay eacn naa lour points in the third frame, while McWil-liams had four to lead Davenport. Davenport went ahead by 36-35 late in the period on Villin-is' only basket of the period, but Cornick cancelled it with a jumper when the Knights got the ball back. Then Jack Leabo made his first bucket of the night for a 38-37 Davenport lead, but Carmody swished another set shot and Ambrose was ahead to stay. Noonan sank a jump shot for a 41-38 Ambrose lead at the end of the quarter, then made seven points in the fourth frame and the Knights held on stubbornly to the lead. Villinis and Hillcbrand scored 11 of Davenport's 16 last -period points. Villinis' last bucket of the night brought Davenport to within one at 51-50 after the Imps hal trailed by five at 47-42. Noonan made a lay - up, was fouled on the shot and converted the free throw attempt, giving Ambrose a 54-50 lead with a minute and a half to go. Leabo bounced down the middle and laid one in to cut the count to 54-52 before Smith drew a mid court foul from Gary Gardner and made both free throws for a 56-52 Ambrose lead with 12 seconds left. With a couple of seconds remaining Hillebrand swished an anti-climactic one-hander and the game was history. Davenport built up its first half advantage at the free throw line where the Imps made 10 out of 12 attempts to St. Ambrose's 7-for-12. But in the second half, St. Ambrose shot 50 per cent from the field (12-for-24) and 100 per cent on charities (5-for-5), while Davenport was missing on seven of 13 free throws.

It'll go two out of three falls to the finish with no time limit. In a telephone conversation late Saturday Sam Muchnick, president of the Wrestling Alliance of America, agreed to assign Sam Menackcr, his referee - in chief, to the Davenport tag team bout because it is expected to be a rough match to handle. Bruns suffered an injured eye in last week's bout with O'Toole and was forced to withdraw in a bout which brought many of the fans into action. A third match will open up the 8:30 p.m. card for which tickets are now on sale at all Quad-City agencies. Mail order requests may be sent to All Star Wrestling, Post Office Box 300, Rock Island, 111. Miss Byers is the proud holder of more trophys and titles than any other girl in the history of the wrestling world. Her earning power, even when viewed with a caustic eye, is around $50,000 a year. She is an attractive, intelligent lady, who stands 5-6 in height; weighs an agile 148 pounds; and hails from the state of Texas. In wrestling circles, she is "Miss Big." and wherever she appears, the S.R.O. sign is an absolute necessity. She travels almost 150,000 miles per year, and wrestles to packed houses wherever she appears.
