...THESE FACES IN THE CROWD...

Jumbo Jim Elliott cagily maneuvered his tight little Villanova squad, got points from all but four, including double from Ron Delany in 4:08.4 mile and 1:49.5 half-mile, surprise victories in 100 and 220 from converted Quarter-Miler Ed Collymore, to earn his first IC4A outdoor title in New York.

Shirley Bloomer, 22-year-old British girl who is developing into real Wimbledon threat, slowed down her game to outduel America's Dorothy Head Knode along base lines for 6-1, 6-3 victory and French title at Paris. Men's winner: Sweden's Sven Davidson, who defeated Herb Flam 6-3, 6-4, 6-4.

Reid Jack, 33, imperturbable Scottish accountant who earned his spurs fighting Japs bayonet to bayonet in World War II, held on brilliantly in face of determined playing of leathery-faced USAF Master Sergeant Harold Ridgley to squeeze out 2 and 1 triumph in British Amateur at Formby.
