Fisher says the major task facing him as the new president of the national Amateur Athletic Union is to iron out differences between his group and the National Collegiate Athletic Association. “We have a desire to get together to try to resolve our differences,” said Fisher, 59- year-old dapper prosecuting attorney of the High Point City Court. “I hope they (the NCAA) have a similar desire. “If we don’t get together, everybody is going to get hurt, the athletes and the Olympic program.” Fisher, a veteran official of the North Carolina and national AAU, was elected president in Washington Dec. 3. “In my acceptance speech in Washington.” said Fisher, “one of my keynote points was that the differences between the NCAA and the AAU should not be carried any further. The two bodies should direct their efforts to training athletes for FOR COASTS PRESTIGE Unbeaten Broncos Meet Mighty Wichita Tonight By I. P. INTERNATIONAL Underrated Santa Clara attempts to recoup a little of the coast’s lost pffspg^at Wichita tonight in a big cage battle. The Broncos are 7-0 and are playing without two starters. Wichita has lost only to Ohio State and upset NCAA champion Cincinnati Monday night. Last night the coast finally got into the win column in an intersectional battle as San Jose State turned in a convincing 60-54 win at Brigham Young. Bill Robertson led the Spartans with 22 points and the Spartans out-rebonded the Cou- Bears' Mike Ditka Rookie Of Year CHICAGO (P—“It's wonderful,” owner-coach George Halas of the Chicago Bears said today of end Mike Ditka’s selection as Associated Press rookie of the year in the National Football League. “He’s a great player and certainly deserved it,” Papa Bear added. The 6-3, 230-pound Ditka. an AP All-America end in 1960 at Pitt, was the overwhelming choice of a committee of sports writers and sportscasters participating in the AP rookie balloting. He drew 27 votes while the runner-up, quarterback Fran Tarkenton of the Minnesota Vikings, got only four. Others drawing support were halfback Don Perkins of the Dallas Cowboys, quarterback Norm Snead of the Washington Redskins, and linebacker Myron Pottios of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ditka, the Bears’ No. 1 draft choice a year ago, caught 56 passes for 1,076 yards and 12 touchdowns while operating as j the Bears’ tight end. gars, 54-41. BYU stayed in the contest largely on free throws, hitting 28 of 38 foul shots. Elsewhere, the coast was again dumped although scores were for the most part close. UCLA rang up a big almost at Creighton. The Bruins were ahead 3520 when a sub named Larry Wagner came in the game and led the Bulldogs back to where they trailed 42-40 at half and moved ahead to stay after the intermission. The Bruins then fought back to close the gap to two points, but could not tie it up. Final score was 74-72. Paul Silas and Wagner led Creighton with 24 and 21 points, while John Green had 23 for the Bruins. In action along the coast, once-beaten Washington continued to look like one of the coast’s tougher quintets with a 75-66 romp over Idaho. Bill Bill Hanson had 18 for the Huskies. Fresno State evened up its series at Washington State with an 81-72 defeat of the Cougars. Tonv Burr and Mike McFerson tallied 49 points between them for Fresno. the 1964 Olympics. This constant bickering is not getting us anywhere and it is detrimental.” According to Fisher, there are two main reasons for the current breach between the two groups. Both reasons stem from AAU domination of amateur basketball policy in the U.S. In 1960, the basketball committee of the U.S. Olympic Games Committee was composed of eight representatives of the AAU, eight from the NCAA and four from the armed services. The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, which represents about 535 small colleges, asked the Olympic committee that its best teams be allowed to participate in the Olympic trials. Fisher said the NCAA, headed by Walter Byers, its executive secretary, took the position that most of the NAIA schools were too small and did not have the athletes. NCAA OUTVOTED The AAU and armed services representatives outvoted the NCAA and NAIA teams were allowed to participate. The second difference, said Fisher, is a desire by the NCAA for representation on the Federation of International Basketball Assns. There is one representative from every participating nation and the AAU holds the U.S. seat. Fisher said the AAU is attempting to settle the problem and has offered to form a new group, called the Basketball Council of the U.S., composed of all major basketball groups. This body then would elect the single representative to the international federation. Gopher Coach Impressed By UCLA Progress PASADENA M —'“The thing I fear most about UCLA,” said Minnesota coach Murray Warmath today, “is that this is a team that got better and better through the season and may not be finished getting better.” “I am really bothered by UCLA’s improvement graph,” declared Warmath, whose Go phers, along with the Uclans, knocked off Rose Bowl preparations this afternoon in favor of Disneyland. Both teams had morning drills and then joined forces for a kind of fun they won’t have together New Year's day. Warmath noted that UCLA —after a 29-6 trimming in its second game against Michigan —came to life by holding powerful Ohio State to a 13-3 decision and then won six of its last seven games. Coach Bill Barnes of the underdog Uclans responded with courtesy befitting any protege of Tennessee’s Gen. Bob Neyland, for whom both Warmath and Barnes once played. PRAISES GOPHERS “From our films of Minnesota’s games with Iowa, Purdue and Wisconsin,” said Barnes, “I’d say Murray’s club this season is greatly improved over last year's—a much better all around team. Certainly we don’t have anyone who can begin to compare with Sandy Stephens.” While Warmath said the Gophers will get back to two-a-day drills Friday and Saturday, Barnes said he will stick to the single daily practice which has prevailed since the Uclans started gearing for the Rose Bowl Dec. 11. Jokes Barnes: “Our single wing offense is kind of simple. It doesn't take much work.” College Coaches Will Fight Early Signing MOST VALUABLE—Halfback Paul Hornung of the Green Bay Packers helps himself to lunch at Fort Riley, Kan., where he is on active duty with the Army, after being notified yesterday of his selection by the Associated Press as the National Football League’s Most Valuable Player. The former Notre Dame star led NFL scorers with 146 points. (AP Wirephoto) Most Valuable Honor Big Surprise—Hornung Hawaii Gets Another Shot At Saints SAN FRANCISCO (/P) - The Hawaii Chiefs get another chance tomorrow night to see if they can beat the San Francisco Saints. The visiting Hawaiians were handed their second straight loss by the Saints last night, falling 103-95 despite a 31- point scoring spree by the Chiefs’ Frank Burgess. The San Franciscans have beaten Hawaii in their last four Ameri. can Basketball League meetings. Led by Mike Farmer’s 22 points, the Saints jumped out to a 32-13 first quarter lead and stayed ahead. Hawaii closed the gap to seven points on the second half but San Francisco pulled away on clutch shooting by Whitey Bell and Gene Brown, who each scored 10 points during the final two periods. FT. RILEY, Kan. HP! — “This 1 comes as a great surprise to me because the last couple of months I’ve been in the Army and have missed two games.” That’s what Paul Hornung said about his selection today as the Most Valuable Player in the National Football League by an Associated Press panel of sports writers and sportscasters. “This makes me feel very good,” the Green Bay Packers halfback said. “I realize that playing on the team that is the Western Division champion means a lot. “There are two or three others on the club that could have won the same honor.” The former Notre Dame star made 146 points and won the NFL scoring title for the third year in a row. He missed games with Los Angeles Nov. 19 and Dec. 17. Hornung will get a six-day , leave beginning Dec. 27 — the ; regular Christmas-New Year's I holidav time off the men at Ft. STANFORD — College coaches are angry about professional teams signing their players before their college eligibility is used up, Jack Curtice, president of the College Football Coaches Assn., said yesterday. Curtice added that the coaches undoubtedly will “do something about it during their winter meeting in January.” Referring specifically to the signing of Villanova end Ron Meyers by the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League, the Stanford coach said: “I think it’s terrible. I hope something can be worked out to prevent such things and I’m sure something will be.” Meyers was signed two weeks before he was to play for Villanova against Wichita in the Sun Bowl game at El Paso, Tex. By signing a pro contract, he became ineligible for the bowl game. “Time isn’t so important to the pro teams that they have tc sign a boy just before his eligibility is out,” Curtice said. He said an ironclad understanding is needed. “It’s going to take some strong people both from the colleges and the pros. After all, they’re going to have to stick to the rules that are set up.” Miami Fullback Joins 49ers SAN FRANCISCO UFi — Another high draft choice has joined the ranks of the San Francisco 49ers—fullback Jim Vollenweider from the University of Miami (Fla.). Vollenweider was the eighth choice of the local National Football league club. H e weighs 210 and was Miami’s leading rusher with 471 yards in 101 carries. The 49ers announced the signing yesterday.
