Minnesota Jolts Michigan Matmen's Title Hopes, 17-8;

Warming up for next Friday's
"big" meet with national cham-
pion Illinois, Michigan's gymnas-
tics squad smashed Ohio State
and Indiana by the identical'
scores of 82-30 yesterday to ex-'
tend their unbeaten streak to
The Wolverines, who looked
impressive in walloping Michigan
State, 732-382, last week, looked
even better yesterday, as they put,
on a great performance before an
overflow crowd in the I-M gym-
Several members of the Michi-
gan team came through with the
best performances of their careers
as the whole squad seemed to be
building up for a peak that they
hope to reach this Friday.
Gompf Excels
The visitors managed only one
first against the Wolverines. This
came in the trampoline event
where Tom Gompf of Ohio State
outdueled Ron Walden of Indi-
ana, Frank Newman, Dick Kim-
ball and Ed Cole of Michigan, in
a match that Michigan gym coach
Newt Loken described as "the
best ever held at Michigan.",
, The big crowd, sensing the
quality and closeness of the com-
petition, anticipated some great
performances, and they were not
disappointed. Walden led off with
an 85 point performance, a score
that would win most matches, but
not this one.
Cole, Newman Do Well
Cole, defending Big Ten champ
in this event, soon erased the
Hoosier's lead with a total the
judges rated worth 88 points, but
that again was not enough being
quickly surpassed by Newman,
who twisted and turned to a 93
point total -- undoubtedly the
top performance of his life.
Following Newman 'in this
"battle of the best" was Gompf,
a slender soph, who went through
a near-perfect routine of the
trampoline's toughest tricks to
accumulate 94 points. The last
performer, Kimball, started off
perfectly -- his small, lithe body
flying through the air in what
seemed effortless ease.
Nearing the end of his routine,
it looked as if he would top the
star-studded field, but his last
trick went awry,, causing him to
settle for third with 90 points.
Cops Three Firsts
In the apparatus events Michi-
gan was unbeatable as Al Stall
led the way with three firsts. The'
husky junior, who has always
been somewhat of a hot and cold
performer, was really "hot" as he

'gave performances that Loken
called "the best in his career."
After two wins on the side horse
and high bar, Stall went through
a sharp routine on the still rings
and the roar of the crowd signi-
fied well before the judges posted
their totals that he had won his
third first of the day,
Tumbler Bill Skinner also was
"hot" as he flew over the mats
for a 91.5 winning'performance-
one of his best.
Montpetit Best Overall
The afternoon's leading scorer
was Michigan's Richard Montpetit
who piled up 21 points; inclding
a first on the parallel bars.
In the third dual meet of the
day, the Hoosiers came on strong
in the last two.events to edge the
Buckeyes, 62-53.

Michigan's chances in the Big
Ten wrestling championships were
dampened yesterday when Minne-
sota grabbed a 17-8 victory before
about 1,200 fans in Yost Field
. Wolverine matmen won only7
two of the eight bouts and drew
in another in a meet character-
ized by lethargy and missed
chances. Coach Cliff Keen was
content to let the results speak
for themselves. "I don't know
what we did, but we didn't
wrestle." he said.
Still Fears Michigan
But Minnesota coach Wally
Johnson, whose team now sports
an 8-2 dual meet record as a re-
sult of Friday's loss to Michigan
State and yesterday's victory, still
considers Michigan in' the thick
of Conference title contention. "It
looks like Iowa, Minnesota, Michi-
gan and Michigan State will'fight
it out."
The Wolverines' record is now
5-4, but Michigan has a reputa-
tion in recent years of perform-
ing better in the Big Ten meet
than the dual-meet record would
have indicated.
Michigan State jumped head-
long into the title race by nosing
out Minnesota Friday night, at
East Lansing. Johnson said his
team was not at its best Friday,
and was somewhat sharper
against the Wolverines.
Wolverines Flat
At any rate, there was little
doubt yesterday that Michigan
was flat. Several Wolverines let
opportunities for takedowns or
falls slip by. Others had several
good chances for getting out from
underneath, but couldn't seem to
spring loose.
There were significant excep-
tions. Captain Larry Murray
notched his fifth victory in a row
by taking care of Bob Board, 5-2,
in the 130-lb. match. Don Cor-
riere rebounded from his Iowa de-
feat last week with a solid 8-1
triumph at 157 over Harry
Schlieff. Heavyweight Fred Olm
accounted for Michigan's two oth-
er team points by drawing with
Pete Veldman, 1-1, where each
grappler managed an escape and
nothing else.

gan's Mike Hoyles, 11-6 at 123.
Michigan's 137-lb. Jim Agnew
missed a. chance to pin Chuck
Coffee early in the second period
and lost a 5-1 decision. Jim Blaker
missed several good opportunities
to escape from the grasp of Goph-

er 147-lb. Jim Reifsteck, and lost
a 4-3 decision on riding time.
Joe Paddock, substituting at 167
for injured Bill Koehnen, reversed
Michigan's Dick Fronczak with 53
seconds remaining for a 4-3 tri-
umph. Fronczak missed chances
for second-period takedowns.
After the meet, a banquet was

held at the League honoring 53
Michigan wrestlers of the past.
Among those present from Keen's
first Michigan team of 1925 were
Dr. H. T. Donohue, Wilbur Pres-
cott, Buren J. Hardin,, and Roy
F. Parker. One, Rudy Halberg,
wrestled here two years before
Keen became coach.

Swimmers' Depth Submerges Wisconsin, 66-38

Special to The Daily
MADISON - The campus-hop-
ping Michigan swim team con-
tinued its winning surge yesterday
with a 66-38 victory over Wiscon-
sin at the Badgers' 20-yd, short-
course Varsity Pool.
With a spirited impetus gained
from Friday night's win over Mich-
igan State, the Wolverines board-
ed a plane early yesterday morning
-for the Madison campus.
Although the locale changed,
the complexion of the meet was
no different than that at MSU.
Wisconsin couldn't cope with
the great depth of the Michigan
Morrow Wins
Sophomore Andy Morrow usually
bolstering Michigan's reserve at-
tack, came to the fore with a firstj
in the 220-yd. freestyle. The Wol-
verines' John Urbancsok, who per-
formed so well against State, was

breaststroke was also indicative of
the Wolverines' overall team depth.
The trimly-built Maten rarely gets
to swim in the number one breast-
stroke, but beat Wisconsin's best
man handily.
Even More Powerful
Dave Gillanders proved too, that
this year's squad is even more
powerful than last season's na-
tional champions. The rapidly im-
A~K1 1

proving sophomore defeated Wol-
verine All-American Tony Tash-
nick in the 200-yd. butterfly.
The only competition these two
have had in recent meets has been
from each other. Gillanders set a
new Badger pool record of 2:06.8
with the win.
Wisconsin looked to sprint-star
Fred Westphal to stem the Michi-
gan onslaught..The stocky speed-

ster nipped previously undefeated
Frank Legacki by a foot to win
the 60-yd. freestyle.
Carl Woolley made amends in the
100-yd. freestyle to upset the Wis-
consin star.
Joe Gerlach was the Wolverines'
sole representative in diving. The
graceful 'Hungarian performer
gave Michigan the point advantage
in the event, though, with a first.
