MODERN PENTATHLON—The four-man U.S. Olympic team will be led by Army Captain JIM MOORE, 29, of Erie, Pa., who compiled 5,002 points in the five grueling pentathlon events (horseback riding, fencing, pistol shooting, swimming, cross-country running) to win the national championship for the second consecutive year, in San Antonio.
TRACK & FIELD—Without even breathing hard at the finish line, GERRY LINDGREN completed a four-mile cross-country race in an amazing 16:54 at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut, Calif. The Spokane 18-year-old, who will run the 10,000 meters at Tokyo, chopped 37 seconds off the previous course mark of 17:31, set in 1958 by Max Truex of USC.
MILEPOSTS—FIRED: HARRY CRAFT, 49, manager of the Houston Colts since they joined the National League in 1962, by General Manager Paul Richards. He was immediately succeeded by Third Base Coach Luman Harris, an old friend of Richards.
LOST: To the U.S. Olympic boxing team, Heavyweight BUSTER MATHIS of Grand Rapids, who broke a bone in his right hand during a training bout with alternate Joe Frazier of Long Beach, Calif. Frazier replaced Mathis on the team.
DIED: Former Boston Bruin Forward ROBERT T. (Bobby) BAUER, 49, three-time winner of the National Hockey League's Lady Byng Memorial Trophy for sportsmanship, of a heart attack in Kitchener, Ont. Right winger Bauer joined the Bruins in 1937 and skated with fellow Kitchener natives Milt Schmidt (center) and Woody Dumart (left wing) on the formidable "Kraut line," which led the Bruins to the 1939 and 1941 Stanley Cup championships. After serving with the RCAF during the war, Bauer retired as a player in 1947 but he remained active in hockey as coach of the Canadian Olympic teams in 1956 and 1960.
