Olmedo Heads Four-Man Team for Davis Cup SAN FRANCISCO — (/P) — Three members of the U.S. Davis Cup team who brought back the famed tennis trophy from Australia last winter and one experienced newcomer were named today to defend the Cup in the challenge round at Forest Hills, N.Y., Aug. 28-30. They are Alex Olmedo, the one-man team from Peru who almost single-handedly beat the Australians; big Barry MacKay of Dayton, Ohio; 18-year-old Earl (Butch) Buchholz of St. Louis and Bernard (Tut) Bartzen of Dallas. The selections were announced by James B. Moffett of San Francisco, chairman of the Davis Cup Selection Committee. A fifth player will be chosen sometime prior to Aug. 18, Moffett said. Ron Hoimberg of Brooklyn, a member of the 1957 Davis Cup squad, was in line for the position until he lost to Buchholz in the Eastern Championships at South Orange, N.J. Thursday. Olmedo accounted for all three American points in the .32 victory over Australia in the challenge round last December, winning two singles matches and teaming with Ham Richard son in a doubles victory. MacKay was the other singles player against Australia. Buchholz, a team member, didn't get to play in the Cup matches but he turned in a series of sensational performances in Australia.

(Mike) Howard, 75, wrestling coach at the University of Iowa for 30 years, died Saturday in an Iowa City hospital. Colts 16'Point Favorites in All-Star Grid Game Friday CHICAGO -(i^*— The champion Baltimore Colts of the National Football League will be at 16-point favorites against the pick of the 1958 collegiate crop in the 26th All- Star football game in Soldier Field Friday night. A throng of approximately 70,000 will pack the huge arena on the Lake Michigan shoreline for the colorful gridiron classic. The game will be broadcast and telecast nationally, via ABC at 8:30 p.m., CDT. The College All-Stars, after three weeks of preparation by former Cleveland Brown star quarterback Otto Graham, will be seeking a second consecutive triumph over pro football's top team. Last season, the Graham- coached Collegians jolted the Detroit Lions 3f5-19 for the eighth All-Star victory against 15 defeats and 2 ties. It was the first All-Star triumph since 1955. Pro-Wise Staff Graham is surrounded by a pro-wise staff, including Pete Pihos, Don Doll, Lou Saban, and Dick Stanfcl, all of whom know that speed, bulk and the quick long-gainer are needed to surprise the confident talented and poised pros. The 49-plnyer College squad already has been tested against pro competition, having edged the Chicago Bears 7-6 In a game-type scrimmage Tuesday. The Bears, of course, can't quite match the Colts in heavy artillery. The All-Stars may get quite a lesson from the Unitas, fullback Alan Amcche, likes of quarterback Johnny WRJN WILL CARRY ALL-STAR GAME WJRN AM-FM Will broadcast the annual coliege all- star football game at 8:30 p.m. Friday. halfback Lenny Moore, and linemen Gene (Big Daddy) Lipscomb, Art Donovan, Gino Mar- chettl and Jim Parker. However, the Collegians are loaded with lads headed for the pro ranks, each anxious to make an outstanding showing against the Colts. They learned not to drop their guard and generally received a stiff postgraduate lesson against the Bears. Passing Is Key On the basis of the Bear scrimmage in Rennselaer, Ind., the All-Star attack may be hubbed around the passing of Utah's Lee Grosscup, the run ning of Notre Dame's Nick Pietrosante, scatback Elbert Dubenlon of Little Bluffton (Ohio), Houston's Don Brown, Pittsburgh's Dick Haley, and Cincinnati's *Joe Morrison. The All-Stat" touchdown against the Bears was scored by end Buddy Dial of Rice on a 33-yard pass from cirosscup. However, the Collegians also have fine receivers in ends Rich Kreitling of Illinois and Dave Sherer of Southern Methodist, and halfback Boyd Dowler of Colorado. It can be recalled, significantly, that last year (he All- Stars were held to only three yards rushing against the Lions. However, the Collegians engineered two electrifying touchdown pass plays and a r c c 0 r d - matching four field goals kicked by Bobby Joe Conrad. That may mean a busy evening of aerial shots by Gross cup, Bobby Newman of Washington State, Buddy Humphrey of Baylor and Michigan's Bob Ptacek, the All-Star quarterbacks. Depends on-Defense The game, though, probably will be decided by how well the hand-picked All-Star defensive unit can handle the huge, smooth Colts, and whether the offensive unit can execute blocking assignments. The All-Star staff, knowing it takes weight to move weight, has lined up a beefy array of linemen. Included are Mac Lewis of lov/a (290 pounds); Nick Mumley and Gene Sclaw- ski, both from Purdue and both 248; Frank Geremia of Notre Dame (245); Bob Reifsnyder of Navy (240); Mike ftabold of Indiana (240); Ken Beck of Western Illinois (235); Andy Cvercko of Northwestern (235); Francis O'Brien of Michigan State (235); and Maurice Scleicher of Penn State (235). Two All-Star defensive stand* outs, based on practice performances, may be halfback Billy Stacey of Mississippi State, first draft choice of the Chicago Cardinals; and Emil Karas, 220 tackle from Dayton. A player the Chicago Bears think may be a pro sleeper, 235-pound fullback John Adams of Los Angeles State, probably will miss action for the All-Stars. Adams, No. 4 Bear draft choice, was summoned to the west coast by illness in his family.
