The last full session of practice for the Indianapolis 500 was canceled because of rain Friday. The forecast called for a 30% chance of thunderstorms today and mostly sunny skies Sunday. Only seven spots remain in the 33-car starting field for the May 28 race, and chief steward Tom Binford said no decision has been made on how to fill them if this weekend's final qualifying is canceled. Binford said the usual procedure would be to schedule a special session limited to cars that have drawn for a position in the qualifying order.

William Price figured he had nothing to lose. Indiana State had taken a 25-24 lead over Kansas State, and Price, a Kansas State defensive back, figured the Sycamores would be passing on a two-point conversion attempt. Price guessed right. He intercepted a pass and ran 102 yards for a safety, lifting Kansas State to a 26-25 victory at Manhattan, Kan. "You have to gamble," Price said. "Somebody has to step up with the game on the line."
