By Frank Allslon. Jr.
""Vic Seixas one of the greatest
athletes ever to wear the Blue

week when the U. S. Lawn Ten
nis Association named him the na
tion's No. 1 amateur.
The handsome Philadelphian,

sial session of the USTA at New
York Saturday saw Seixas emerge
with the top position on the basis
of the first proxy vote on tennis
ratings in the Association's his
tory. Seixas polled- 30,900 votes to
24,375 for Savitt.
Capt." Frank Shields of the
American Davis Cup team was
credited with the success of the
move. to gain" the top ranking for
Seixas, who had been placed sec
ond to Tony Trabert by the rank
ing committee in December. Seix
as, Savitt and Trabert all played
in the.U. S-,3-2 loss to Australia
in thel951 challenge round.
JSeixas was a dominating figure
on the Carolina athletic scene dur

freshman in the fall of 1941 and
played brilliantly on the fresh

After serving four years in the
ilrmy Air Corps, part of that time
as a test pilot in New Guinea, he
returned to pick up his college
career. During the 1947, 48 and 49
seasons he was No. 1 man on the
Carolina team which ,won 65
matches and lost only three.
Seixas' time at Carolina wasn't
spent entirely on the tennis
.court. He found time to partici

his best game during the summer
months when" he hit the .tennis
circuit. In .1948, he was ranked
