i WD F-D- A- X is tD. X llaftfof & fontfmtt SATURDAY MORNING, JULY 7, 1962 J i With Malice Toward lone By BILL LEE Sports Editor AWHEN HARVARD'S varsity crew missed by a second catching " the Eli boat in the 97th Yale-Harvard race on the Thames last month, it didn't exactly ruin the Harvard athletic year. An effort as superb as the Harvard crew made could not ruin or contaminate any season. It was one of the closest and most dramatic finishes in the long history of this classic intercollegiate rowing competition. The fact is, however, that even with this minimal defeat, Harvard athletic units finished first in the Ivy League in overall competition. In total varsity events in the Ivy League, the Crimson finished first by 26 "games," if a reckoning may be made in the baseball manner. Not only have the Johnnies come from deep in the football woods to the Ivy League championship, but Harvard obviously has not improved its tootball at the expense of other varsity sports. Their 1962 record of 147 wins, 67 losses and two ties for a .685 percentage gave them a considerable margin over second place Princeton and third place Yale. Unlike some of the college football, champions in other parts of the country, Harvard does not load its squad with athletic scholarship players. It's tough academically to get into Harvard and even more difficult to remain there, and no exceptions are made for potential All-America tackles. This comparative renaissance of athletics at Cambridge is encouraging to those who, just a few years ago, had reason to believe that Harvard was dangerously close to dropping intercollegiate athletics to a rock-bottom level. JOHN YOVICSIN CAN BE DONE WITHOUT CHEATING With the resurgence that reached a climax in 1962, the Cantabs have proved to themselves and the world that a great university can have successful athletic teams in complete harmony with the highest academic ideals, Rod Laver Routs Mulligan in Net Final WIMBLEDON, England Ufl Rod Laver took another step toward tennis' rare grand slam Friday when he buried fellow Australian Martin Mulligan 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 in the all Englland men's final with a crushing display that awed Queen Elizabeth and a sellout gallery of 14,000. The bandy - legged little lefthander from sub-tropical Queens land needed only 52 minutes to add Wimbledon to the 1962 Australia and French championships he already had won. Now only the U.S. championship at Forest Hills, beginning Aug. 27, stands between him and the sweep o the four big tourna ments which only one man America's Don Budge in 1938 has been able to win in a single season. Britain's Queen, wearing a golden oak colored hat and a coat to match, made her first visit to the courts in five years and she joined in applause for the brilliant Laver performance one of the most devastating in years. Women's Final Today Tomorrow the queen is expect- Little Aussie Southpaw Triumphs by 6-2, 6-2, 6-1 f only amateurs who have turned professional." Mulligan, 21, an unseeded out-i sider who never has been good to make his own country's Davis Cup team, was obviously unnerved ! ed to come out again to watch j two Australians had been paired !by the center court pressure. in the men's final. i nis oesi nowever, ne wouia ; In 1956 Lew Hoad won the Aus-, have nad troub,e today with La-tralian, French and Wimbledon ; ver- wnose dartin8 interceptions crowns and came to Forest Hills : and electric returns might have heavily favored to complete the.beaten any P'ayer aliv-grand slam.

She and Billie Joan Moffitt of Long Beach, Calif., gained the women's doubles final with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Justina Bricka of St. Louis, Mo., and Margaret Smith of Australia. They go against Mrs. Sandra Reynolds Price and Renee Schuurman of South Africa, who upset top-seeded Darlene Hard of Long Beach, Calif., and Maria Bueno of Bra zil 6-3, 6-3, Laver's victory was the sixth for Australia in the last seven years and it marked the sixth time in the last eight years that at Forest Hills." The way he played today, it appeared that there's not a amateur in the world who can come close to beating him. Many observers were ready to proclaim him the world's best amateur or pro. Laver said he had been offered a $70,000 professional contract months ago but had rejected it because "I want to help ed and easily ran out the set The second set was a carbon copy of tiie first, with Mulligan winning only two games on service.

Lowly Mets Erupt Against Cardinals Braves Bat Out of Turn, Then Rally To Beat Cubs on Mathews' Home Run CHICAGO W- Three Milwaukee home runs powered the Braves to a 5-3 10-inning victory over the Chicago Cubs Friday in a game marked by a Milwaukee batting - out - of turn incident in the second inning. Eddie Mathews' 16th homer, a tremendous blast over the right fielder Mack Jones, who lost credit for a single. Catcher Del Crandall, the eighth - place hitter o the official batting order card, walked with two out in the second when he came to the plate in Jones' place.

In some places the temptation is strong to let athletics expand beyond their proper place in the complete program, but I hope it will not sound snooty if it is set down here that the correct correlation of athletics and academics has been achieved without fanfare in many Eastern and New England colleges. The trend appeared to be going in a completely negative direction at Harvard a few years ago. It had become almost the fashion to sneer at athletic competition. It was common gossip that many good football players did not even bother to come out. Crimson teams were in the doldrums generally. FOOTFALL INFLUENCES OTHERS It is the feeling here that football exerts an important influence on all other athletic competitions. When Harvard brought in John Yovicsin to build up football, the overall losing complex was dissipated. ' Harvard undergraduates no longer jeer varsity football players, they cheer instead, and nothing has been lost in the transition. In 1962, Harvard, besides joint ownership with Columbia of the football championship, won Ivy League titles in soccer, hockey, swimming, squash and indoor track. Nor is there any evidence of an early Harvard retreat into the second division of Ivy League athletics competition. The Cantabs finished first in total Ivy freshman competition, which would seem good insurance for the future. LAUNCH DRIVER SHOULD KNOW Besides the crew that came so close to glory, Harvard concluded its big years with a baseball second baseman, Terry Barto-let, who batted .374 and a pitcher, Paul Del Rossi, who had a 10-1 record and an earned run average of 1.40 for 77 innings. Getting back to the crew, publicist Baaron Pittenger provides an interesting quote from Carl Stanley, driver of the Harvard crew's launch. He is retiring after 37 years on the river. Said Carl after the Yale-Harvard race: "This was a lot better crew than the records show. They'll look at the records a few years from now and say this wasn't a very good year for Harvard rowing. But it was. And I'll tell you something else. This was one of the fightingest crews I've ever seen at Harvard. It was quite a gang." With two out in the first over time inning first baseman Ernie Banks dropped Ron Santo's throw on Ken Aspromonte's grounder before Mathews connected. Earlier Hank Aaron, who left the game in the ninth with an ankle injury, hit his 20th homer. Joe Adcock then unloaded his 12th homer, a two-run blast, in the seventh behind Lee Maye's leadoff single. Actually the only loser of the batting out of turn furor was out- protested before pitcher Bob Hendley came to the plate and Umpire Stan Landes ruled the Milwaukee pitcher out for batting out of turn failing to Crandall in the official order. Since Jones was never officially at bat due to the mix-up, his single was erased and the side retired on Hendley's "out" although the pitcher actually never left the dugout. The Cubs took a 2-0 lead in the third on the first of Banks' two doubles. Hendley also encountered double trouble in the eighth as Billy Williams and Banks put base together back-to-back two hits for the 3-3 deadlock. Claude Raymond, who rescued Hendley in the ninth, mopped up to receive credit for his second major league victory.

Podoloff would not comment further nor would he identify the team whioh might be transferred. He said the subject originally had been broached to him by Abe Sap-terstein, commissioner of the ABL. Reports have been prevalent in recent days that the ABL, which was organized only a year ago, would merge with the NBA before the start of the 1962 season. Podoloff insisted, however, in his statement Friday that only the transfer-of one ABL team was being considered.
