WRESTLING—GRAY SIMONS, a 25-year-old Army private from Norfolk. Va., who is the assistant wrestling coach at West Point, won all five matches at 114.5 pounds to lead a field of more than 200 wrestlers in the U.S. Olympic freestyle and Greco-Roman wrestling trials at the New York World's Fair. The 5-foot-5 former Olympian, who weighed 135 earlier this year, dropped 10 pounds to win the AAU 125.5-pound title two months ago and then got down to 114 for the trials by eating once and training twice every day. Heavyweight JIM RASCHKE, an Army private from Omaha who was upset by Larry Kristoff of Carbondale, Ill. in the freestyle competition, avenged the defeat by pinning Kristoff with a double-arm half-nelson in the Greco-Roman heavyweight match. The winners and runners-up in freestyle and Greco-Roman events qualified for a training camp at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, where the runners-up and nine other wrestlers must win two of three matches against the trial winners to replace them on the U.S. team. Final selections will be announced later this month.
