In the prize money last week was World Champion Bowler Don Carter (above), who won $5,000 and the World Invitational Match Game Bowling Championship in Chicago's Coliseum before a national TV audience.
Out of football's Pacific Coast Conference, in a cloud of verbiage, went the University of California, UCLA and the University of Southern California. The ostensible reason for the schools' withdrawal was the refusal of the PCC to approve their athletic policies; a more likely reason lies in the ABCs of fiscal football: the University of Michigan or, say, Oklahoma is a much better bet to fill the 100,000-plus seats in Los Angeles Coliseum than Oregon State or Washington State. After June 30, 1959, when California's withdrawal becomes effective, the three California colleges can freely schedule the colossi of the South and Midwest to the pleasing whir of turnstiles.
Announcing withdrawal of UCLA and California from the Pacific Coast Conference, college officials face newsmen somberly. They are (left to right): Dr. Raymond B. Allen, chancellor of UCLA; Dr. Robert G. Sproul, California president; Ed Pauley, chairman, and Edward W. Carter, a member, California Board of Regents; and Dr. Clark Kerr, president-elect of California.
