There are 13 in the field but barring accident there is no. one to seriously --challenge the su- nremacy of the Harvard senior from -Englewood, N. J: . Dick has won the title four times running and goes into this competition fresh from the Olympic chamnionships in Oslo, where h ; won his second gold medal. Almost all his rivals have been in fields he has beaten time and again. The men will skate their six compulsory figures today. The title will be decided definitely Friday night with the free .skating exhibitions.

Spivey's fate now is in the hands of the university's athletic -coun cil, composed in part of faculty and part of laym'eh. "Rill came here to clear his name," said -Elmer Drake, one of his attorneys, "and «s far as 'I'm concerned he did. I can -see no reason why the school will not permit him to play in the NCAA Tournament." Spivey, who could mean the difference between K e n t u c k y making the Olympic games or being beaten, presented a case unparalleled in college sports. When three of his teammates were linked with gamblers in the "fix" scandals, he asked that he be dropped from the Kentucky basketball team until his name' was cleared. That was in December. Recently, he asked to rejoin his team, then volunteered to come here and face Assistant Dist. Ally. Vincent A, G. O'Connor and a grand jury, both investigating the fixes. He spent more than an hour with O'Connor Tuesday and went before the grand jury yesterday.
