,"1429 HILL ST.

By DALE ARBOUR
Speed is the name of t he
game these days, and the sprint
field for today's Michigan's Re-
lays is no exception.
Leading the field in the 60
yard dash is Gene Brown of
Michigan who last weekend at
Columbus set a new fieldhouse
and Varsity record of :06.0 for
that distance. This time is only
one tenth of a second off the
existing world record of :05.9 set
by John Carlos last year.
Challenging Brown for speed
honors will be Herb Washing-
! ton of Michigan State who has
a best time in the 60 yard dash
of :06.1, and Jim Green of the
University of Kentucky, who
was the NCAA Champion in
1968 with a time of :06,0. How-
ever, Green has been hampered
__. I

FIRST MEET

;anspeed keys relays

by leg injuries all during the
season last year and therefore
he may not be able to compete
effectively this early in the sea-
son.
ANOTHER individual event
which promises to be adequate
in competition will be the pole
vault. Three of the entries have
done 16' or better in previous
competition, which marks them
as some of the best pole vaulters
in the country. They include Bill
Barrett of the Ann Arbor Track
Club, Larry Wolfe of Michigan,
and Wilbur Davis of the Chicago
Track Club. Davis and Wolf
finished second and third re-
spectively at the Columbus Fed-
eration Meet last weekend.
The 600 yard run should also
prove to have its share of ex-
citement as two of the best run-
ners in the country at that dis-
tance are cntered. Bill Wehr-

wein of Michigan State was the
NCAA champion in the 600 last
year with a time of 1:09.8. His
major opponent is Kent Bern-
ard who now runs for the Ann
Arbor Track Club.
SINCE this is a meet com-
posed primarily of relays, some
of those events promise to be
of interest. In the distance med-
ley (880, 440, 1320, mile), Eas-
tern Michigan, Western Mich-
igan and Michigan all have
strong entrys, and all three of
these teams are capable of
breaking the existing fieldhouse
record in this event of 10:02.1
set last year by Michigan.
The sprint medley will see
an especially young and tough
foursome which includes George
Drew in the 440, followed by
Trevor Matthews and G e n e
Brown in the 220s, and anchor-
eed by Eric Chapman. in the
880. Brown is the lone sopho-

more while the other three are
all freshmen.
The meet begins with the col-
lege division events at 11 a.m.
and the finals in the university
division at 6:30 p.m. The pre-
liminaries in the university di-
vision begin at 3:30 p.m. All
the action takes place at Yost
Field House.

By CHRIS TERAS
Five one-hundredths of a point
isn't very much, but it could-make
a difference in today's gymnastics
meet with Minnesota which be-
gins immediately after the wrestl-
ing meet (approximately 4 p.m.)
in the Events Building.
CThis point fraction, however, is
not expected to be crucial to the
contest's final score. The Gophers
are good as they have recorded a
156 season and are undefeated in
the Big Ten, but they are no
match for the undefeated Wolver-
ines, who are going for their 26th
consecutive dual meet victory.
Michigan is -the only conference
team to score above 160. In fact,
the gymnasts' worse score to date
was 160.25, but they have also
topped 163.
Granted that Michigan should
be too much for Minnesota, how-
ever the excitement today will be
provided by individuals. Herein
lies the significance of five one-
hundreths of a point
The number one individual to
watch has at one time this year
missed a 9.5 score on the parallel
bars by five one-hundreths of a
point.
Today may be the day NCAA
champion Ron Rapper achieves
this mark with his one-arm hand-
stand and pirouette move that no
other collegiate competitor has
mastered to date. Of course Rap-
per isn't the whole reason Mich-
igan is a powerhouse.
George Huntzicker, who is also
I an NCAA champion but on the

trampoline, an event no longer
included in NCAA meets, competes
in vaulting and floor exercise,
where he has a 9.3 to his credit.
All-arounder Rick McCurdy is
the defending Big Ten champion,
but his partner Sid Jensen is the
one who has surpassed the 54.0
mark. Jensen had an outstanding
day at East Lansing last week as
Michigan crushed MSU 162-150.
Although sophomore Ray Gura
has scored 9.4 on the side horse,
I the competitors in this event con-
tinue to be a thorn in the side of
.Wolverine coach Newt Loken, be-
cause of their inconsistency.
Loken also has problems in the
high bar, though the problem is
that six have the potential to top
9.0. The best of these are two
sophomores, Ted Marti and Ed
Howard. -
Minnesota, on the other hand,
does have some individuals of its
own who could give the Wolverines
trouble.
Jeff Rock and Rick Blesi have
both scored over 9.0 in the floor
exercise and vaulting. Russ Fy-
strom has achieved over a 9.0 in
the side horse, Fred Kueffer is a
stropg all-arounder, and Frank
Harris and Blair Hanson are cap-
able of 9.2 on the high bar.

By JIM KEVRA
"It will be a good meet. We
can beat them but it's going to
be tough."
Those were the slightly op-,
timistic words of Michigan's
head swimming coach Gus
Stager as he prepared his Maize
and Blue swim team .for to-
night's invasion by the green
meanies from Michigan State
University.
Stager has good reason to be
optimistic about tonight's meet.
His swim team sports a perfect
7-0 dual meet mark so far this
year plus a second place finish
in the recent Big Ten relays.
The dual meet wins include a
victory last weekend over
Southern Methodist University,
one of the nation's strongest
teams.
But, as Stager points out, a
victory will not be easy. The
Spartans boast one of their
finest teams in recent years and
have looked good this year in
dual meet competition. In addi-
tion, they showed surprising
depth as they finished a strong
third in the Big Ten Relays.
Big Ten
St andings

THE SPARTAN swimmers
have a new coach this year, for-
mer assistant coach Dick Fet-
ters. Stager describes Fetters as
"a good coach, He's a man who
knows how to get the most out
of his material."
This year, Fetters has the
material to work with. Eleven
lettermen return to form the
nucleus of a team which in-
cludes last year's Big Ten cham-
pion in the 400-yard Individual
Medley, co-captain Bruce Rich-
ards.
In almost every event, the
Spartans have swimmers who
are at least the equal of Michi-
gan's best swimmers. For exam-
ple, here are Stager's comnients
on the distance races (the 500
and 1000-yard freestyle events).
"They (the Spartans) have
Bruce Richards who last year
beat Gary Kinkead in the Big'
Ten's. In addition, their second
man (George) Gonzalez is the
equivalent of our second man
(probably either Rick Dorney
or Tim Norlen) ."
RICHARDS, however, may
not swim distance events as the
Green and White have a soph-
omore swimmer, John Theurer,
who has already posted the
tenth fastest time in the nation
this year in the 1000-yard free-
style.
Michigan State looks very
strong in the sprints as they
are' led by co-captain Mike
Kalmbach, a fourth place fin-
isher in the 100-yard freestyle
in last year's NCAA champion-

ships. Two members of last
year's Big Ten championship
400-yard freestyle relay team,
Dick Crittenden and Mark Hold-
ridge, also return.
The breaststroke event may
well be the highlight of the
meet. Michigan's strong con-
tingent is led by Bill Mahoney
and Dave Clark who finished
one-two against SMU. They
will, however, get a, strong race
from Jeff Lanini, ' a Spartan
sophomore. Lanini has the
fourth fastest time in the na-
tion this year in thes200-yard
breaststroke with. a: fast 2:14.2.
Mahoney's best time is less than
a second slower.
DIVING SHOULD be another
close event. In the pig Ten re-
lays, the Wolverines captured
firsts in both the one-meter
and three-meter events. The
Spartans, however, also looked
strong as they placed third off
the low board and second in the
high board.
Coach Stager feels that his
team is ready for the meet.
"There hasn't been any letdown
since the ,Southern Methodist
meet and so haven't had to do
anything (to "fire up" the
team)."
History clearly shows the
superiority of previous Wolver-
ine swim teams over Michigan
State. The two schools have
faced each other 46 times with
Michigan's record an impressive
42 wins and only four losses.
The Spartans last win came in
1967 in a meet at East Lansing.
