Another unexpected finish oc-
curred Friday in the meet at
Michigan State. In the 440-yd.
freestyle event, John Urbancsok
came in second place ahead of
Dick Hanley. Both of these swim-
mers though finished behind
State's double winner, Bill Steuert.
Urbanesok Still Young
Stager claimed that the 'M'
teammates were not swimming
against one another but were only
going for places. He added that
he does not feel Urbancsok is
ready to battle Steuert because
the M' sophomore has only been
swimming for one and one-half
"As in the butterfly with Tash-
nick and Gillanders, Hanley and
Urbancsok should alternate first
places for the rest of the season.
They are now that close."
Still another disturbing factor
was the competing in the Wiscon-
sin pool. The Wolverine coach did
not hide his displeasure with the
'tiny pool.' The Michigan pool re-
quires a width of seven feet for
every swimmer; by comparison to
the Wolverine pool's 45' breadth,
the Badger pool measured 19'
across Said Stager, "It was a dis-
heartening experience."
"Despite this handicap, we were
still too slow. From now on, we
are really going to work and bear
down for the big meets ahead,"
he concluded.

Kappa Alpha Psi, Sigma Alpha
Mu, and Sigma Chi advanced to
the second round of I-M social
fraternity "A" basketball cham-
pionship playoffs by winning in
first-round play last night.
Alpha Delta Phi rallied to pull
into a 32-32 tie with KA Psi at
the end of regulation time, but a
free throw and Howard Sims' bas-
ket in the overtime gave KA Psi
a 35-32 victory.
An alert SAM defense and cold
shooting by Beta Theta Pi enabled
the Sammies to eliminate the
Betas, 27-18.

Sigma Chi pounded out a 38-25
triumph over Chi Psi in a rough
Phi Delta Theta qualified for a

bracket by downing Delta Tau

In second place playoff action,
Psi Upsilon held off Alpha Epsilon
Pi, Sigma Nu eliminated Phi
Kappa Psi, 31-27; and Alpha Sig-

a seesaw battle.
Third place playoff winners
were Zeta Beta Tau, Phi Sigma

fast-breaking team ran away from
Tau Delta Phi, 48-23; Phi Sig de-
feated Phi Kappa Sigma, 28-24;

and Phi Kappa Tau won going
away from Acacia, 41-25.

Phi Gamma Delta ran up the
night's highest score in swamp-
ing Sigma Phi, 63-33, in a fourth
place playoff quarter final. Three

better. Phi Sigma Kappa advanced

Skinner, Brown Keys
To Hopes Against Illini



A pair of tumblers, Bill Skin-
ner and Jimmy Brown, may hold
the key to Michigan's chances of
beating Illinois' Big Ten and
NCAA gymnastic champions Fri-
day, night.
With the match between the
Conference's only two unbeaten
squads expected to run right down
to the wire before a packed crowd
in the I-M Building, the final
event in which this duo will be
matched against the defending
Big Ten tumbling champ Alan
Harvey may very well be the de-
ciding one.
Gymnastic Coach Newt Loken
said the two tumblers have "im-
proved tremendously since the be-
ginning of the season, which is'
only indicative of the many hours
of hard work they have put in
Alternate in First
Skinner and Brown have alter-
nated finishing first and second
in Michigan's last four meets,
with Skinner putting on one of
his better performances to win
last weekend's event against Ohio
State and Indiana.
For Skinner, who earned letters
in swimming, track and football
while attending high school in his
hometown of Toronto, Ont.,
tumbling is a relatively new sport.
His first contact with it came
Just a little over two years ago
when he was attending the Air
Force Academy.
There he served under the
tutelage of former NCAA tumbling
champion Bob Sullivan and when,,

after a few months, he was forced
to leave the academy due, to an
eyesight deficiency, Sullivan rec-
ommended Michigan.
Cheerleader Captain
Now a junior in civil engineer-
ing, Skinner was recently appoint-
ed captain of the Michigan cheer-
leaders for next fall.
His partner on the mats, Brown,
also has a military background,
having attended the Georgia Mili-
tary Academy in his home town
ofg Atlanta.
Although he has specialized in
tumbling while competing for the
Wolverines, Brown has won the
Georgia- State Gymnastic Cham-
pionships for the past two years
and hopes to compete in several
events for Michigan next season.
The sophomore, whose sense of
humor is almost as sharp as some
of his tumbling routines, has a
good chance to develop into one
of Michigan's greatest tumblers in
the next two years according to
