By FRED KATZ
Local gymnastic fans will be
treated to one of the biggest dual
meets in Michigan history this
evening at 8 when Illinois' Big Ten
champions (eight times running)
invade the I-M gymnasium.
Admission is by I-D cards for
students and faculty and one dol-
lar for all others.
For sheer dramatics this meet
will be difficult to top. Both teams
are undefeated. Illinois has a 9-0
mark in dual competition while
!Michigan has won one less.
Strong Squads
Each of the team's coaches-the
Wolverines' Newt Loken ,and the
Illini's Charlie Pond-is proclaim-
ing the respective squads as his
strongest in years.
And that means it will take
some doing to top the visitors,
who, in addition to their horde of
Conference trophies, have won the
NCAA's four of the last five years.
The meet is expected to serve as
a fairly reliable barometer as to
who rates the favorite's role for
the Big Ten meeting coming up in
just one week. Both ,teams have
rolled over the same foes in im-'
pressive fashion and appear to be
in a distinct class by themselves.
But Loken forewarns, and the
records back him, that "the winner
isn't necessarily a shoe-in for the
title." Three years ago Michigan

edged the Illini, but the latter still1
walked off with the league crown.
To whip Illinois, the Wolverines
are going to have to nullify the
points sure to be scored by the
great senior all-around combina-
toin of Abe Grossfield and Don
Tonry, which is as difficult as it
sounds.
Illini Given Edge
"To beat two Olympians of
Grossfeld and Tonry's caliber is
quite a task," Loken said. "Because
of them, Illinois has to be given
the edge."
The meet is most likely to be
decided by the performances of
Michigan's tumbling and trampo-
line units, both of which are some-
what stronger than the Illini's.
Loken commented in-a thumb-
nail prediction "If we can gain a
considerable edge in the tram-
poline and tumbling events, and if
the apparatus team can break up
their one-two punch,then wehave
an excellent chance of winning."
Other outstanding Illinois
threats include Pat Bird on the
apparatus, all-around man Ed
Thinclads Host
Added Entries
Toronto and Wayne State have
been added to Purdue's entry as
opposition for Michigan's track
team here tomorrow night.
The meet, scheduled for 7:30
p.m. at Yost Field House, will fea-
ture only regular indoor dual
events-thus excluding three Big
Ten standards, the 300-, 600-, and
1000-yd. runs.
Michigan Coach Don Canham
announced, however, that Wolver-
ine varsity runners will compete
in these Conference events with
possible opposition from several
outstanding freshmen performers.
The meet is the final home ap-
pearance of the indoor season.

Gombos and tumbler-trampolinist
Allan Harvey.
To stay in contention following
the Illini-dominated events, the
Wolverines must get great per-
formances from its tramp team of
Ed Cole, former NCAA champion,
Dick Kimball, Frank Newman and
Chuck Clarkson, and from tum-
blers Bill Skinner and Jimmy
Brown.
Bar Specialist
Rivaling Grossfeld and Tonry in
the apparatus competition will be
co-captain Jim Hayslett, who is
reaching top form in his high bar
and parallel bars specialties after
recovering from a chest injury.
