Derby Winner Is Nervous By ED SCHUYLER JR. 'ry LOUISVILE. Ky. (AP) -,'• .Proud Clarion did his homework ''.so well that just a fraction more . than two minutes after the Kentucky Derby started, school was out for 13 other top 3 year-olds.

Ilinois Hit by New Penalty CHICAGO (AP)-The University of Illonis still groggy from Big Ten penalties for a $21,000 athletic slush fund, was slugged Sunday with .two years' probation by the National Collegiate Athletic Association. During the probation period, Illinois' football and basketball teams are prohibited from engaging in post-season competition and the football team cannot make commitments for television appearances. However, two scheduled football shows this fall will not be affected since the commitments were made prior to Sunday's crackdown by the NCAA. The NCAA action climaxed a six-month ordeal during which Illinois coaches Pete Elliott, football; Harry Combes, basketball; and Howard Braun, basketball assistant, were forced to resign and 14 athletes were declared ineligible, five of them permanently. The NCAA's move ..... ..._ vent Illinois from participating in the basketball playoffs and Rose Bowl games until the school returns to good standing, which would be no sooner than May 7, 1969. taken by the Big Ten, which forced the resignation of the three cftaches. Byers said the NCAA's, policymaking council could not have asked the Big Ten to do more than it did and that the conference followed policies made in (he recent meetings in Houston to penalize the head coaches involved rather than having an assistant shoulder the blame when violations occur. Bill Reed, commissioner of the Big Ten, was not available for comment and Dr. Oavid D. Henry, president of the University of Illinois, said he had no comment en the NCAA's deci- sion "at this time." In other action, the University of Tulsa was censured and reprimanded because Tulsa's athletic director had terminated financial assistance to a student athlete for not participating in spring football pracice.

Giersberg posted 'a 4:14.4 and a 15:09.5 to capture first place in the mile and three mile runs, while Spencer cleared 6 feet, 2 inches to Win the high jump and clocked a 56.6 - second effort to take the 44fpyard intermediate hurdles. TOKYO (AP)—Gen Bacq'ue, a former farmhand for the Detroit Tigers, pitched a two .litter for the Hanshin Tigers Sunday for a 3-0 shutout over the Hiroshima Carps. Tulsa hab been fined $1,000 and warned against repetition of the violation by the Missouri Valley Cftnfcrence. Waynesburg College and Central College of Pella, Iowa, were put on probation for one year for participating in post-season football games last fall which have not been certified by the NCAA. The University 6t Chattanooga was put back in good standing after serving one year probation for violations in administering grants-in-aid. US Won't Get Sprinter in the 880.

The former North Carolina College star — he's still in school although his eligibility has run out — was third in the 1964 Olympics in the 200-meter dash and also ran on the Ihird- place 1,600-meter relay team.

He was voted the top performer for the second time in three years. Was lie tired after a 47.6 quarter-mile anchor on the mile relay team that won the invita- event in 3:14.6 on the sloppy track? He shrugged. "I just get out there and do the best I can." His best also included two 9.7 100-yard dashes, the second earning him his third straight championship here, and anchor legs in the club and service 440 and 880 relays.
