THE MICHIGAN DAILY St
t OSU Sets Record;
Lee Tops Scorers
By FRED KATZ
Special to The Daily
day COLUMBUS - A miserably cold-shooting and defensively-
rhat inadequate Michigan basketball team suffered its worst defeat of the
1 of season last night at the Ohio State St. John Arena, 106-83.
and It was a tremendous reversal of the year's earlier meeting between
etic the two Big Ten rivals. Michigan won that game, 78-74.
OSU Takes Lead
ni a 'The Buckeyes practically blasted their guests off the court in
de- the first three and one half minutes when they took a 14-1 lead,
gan and then coasted the rest of the way with incredible ease.
The wining point total was the most ever scored by a Michigan
"etsopponent (erasing the mark of 103 set by Michigan State two weeks
tics It also tied OSU's all-time one game high. By losing, Michigan
rof missed an important opportunity to come closer to its own goal of
ion. second place in the Conference.t

Stanger. The low sticks mark be-
fore last night was shared by Al
Thomas -(1941), Don Hoover
(1951), Van Bruner (1952-3) and
Tom Hendricks (1955-6).
Cephas also won the high jump
(6'4") and ran a trong third in
the short sprint.
Landstrom started at 14' in the
pole vault due to his high fever and
Canham feared he wouldn't be
successful at that height. He made
it on his first try.
Mamon Gibson, jumping his
best indoor height, tied NCAA co-
titlist Jim Johnston of Purdue for
second at 14'4".
Martin, continuing his fine de-
volopment in the distances, ran
the fastest mile at Michigan since

Now 6-6, the Wolverines dropped
from third to sixth place.
They meet second-place Illinois
tomorrow evening at 8 at Yost
Fieldhouse in their next to last
contest of the season. Michigan
closes out its Conference schedule
Saturday at home against Minne-
Using their array of speed and
6'5"-plus forward and centers to
full advantage, Ohio State con-
tinually outmanned the Wolver-
ines to score a huge number of
layups. And when the Buckeyes
were forced to hook the ball in,
their front liner Joe Roberts
(6'5"), Dick Furry (6'6"), and
Larry Huston (67") appeared to
score almost at will.
Michigan on the other hand,
had difficulty much of the first
half even getting shots away,
many attempts being batted down
by the lanky OSU trio.
The Wolverines' M. C. Burton
experienced a dismal first 20 min-
utes, missing all of his 10 field
goal attempts. He connected on
four for four in the second half,
and, combined with his 10 free
throws, maintained a slim lead in
the Conference scoring race over
Minnesota's Ron Johnson. The
senior co-captain needs .29 points
in his last two college games to
break Ron Kramer's individual
mark for one season of 450 points.
OSU Hits 50 Per Cent
Ohio State scorched the net for
a smouldering 50 per cent con-
necting on 46 of 96 field goal tries.
Although the Wolverines made a
decent percentage-37-their first
half average of 25 per cent put
them too far out of contention to
ever be even a mild threat.
The Buckeyes started the fracas
with seven points in a hurry-up
order before a Burton free throw
broke the string. Then OSU added
another seven and Michigan found
itself with an impossible deficit.
tee Hits 29
George Lee, who led all scorers
with 29, pumped in the first Maize
and Blue field goal with 15:52 left
in the half, but in less than a min-
ute,, the Buckeyes stretched the
lead to 2 1-5.

Responsible training-program assignments offer varied expe-
rience, and a chance to select the work you prefer for long-range
growth. For example, let's examine the present training of
Larry Wood, class of '58:
Larry chose the Navigational Systems Laboratory for his initial
assignment. Here, he is working on the inertial guidance sys-
tem for the SUBROC missile; he selects components such as
networks and gear trains, specifies parameters such as amplifier
gain, and is studying possible alternates to the present system.
